About

A lover of all things football, Keith is a die-hard Manchester United fan. The love blossomed in the 90's watching the enigmatic and silky Frenchman - Eric Cantona. And although a huge admirer of current Manchester United stars, he still misses the unique striker to the extent that he routinely wears his collar up and kung-fu kicks his friends in rememberance of his hero.

He experienced one of the greatest nights of his life last year when he ventured out for the Champions League final between United and the Blues and what a final it was! What followed that was the consumption of many, many litres of alcohol in a celebration of his team's emphatic victory.

However following this years Champions League final loss to the brilliant Barcelona, Keith's mood dampened somewhat. The dream trophy haul died at the merciless feet of Andreas Iniesta and his death grip upon the football. Still, like any true fan, he chose to drown his sorrows and await next year with renewed hope.

Keith enjoys writing Manchester United based articles but tries his best to stay objective and unbiased. A Sports Journalist hopeful, he has enrolled in college to help him achieve his goal.

Keith is also extremely fond of the sport of his homeland Ireland, with Hurling his preferred activity of the Emerald Isle. Keith was born and raised in the "sunny south-east" of Wexford town and still somehow remains proud to be from a place that basically lied to him, not once has he seen the sun of the "sunny south east" in the last six months.

A proud Irishman, he follows the Ireland national side with pride and hopes that Trapatonni can lead the men in green and restore their former glory.

A happy go lucky guy, he enjoys socialising, the pain of tattoo's, the exhilaration of a Manchester United victory, the simple sarcasm of life and a good pint of Guninness.

Keith welcomes you to enjoy his articles and urges you to comment and rate freely.

    Lol with our injury list, t'll be a struggle to get out the groups but here's to hoping eh? By the way, if Fergie wants to solve his defensive woes when Rio is missing, he best go all out to sign Simon Kjaer. The lad is pure class...

    That is true, Pelle will be out. But hey, nothing wrong with having seven coaches over six years, right?

    Manuel is a decent coach, likes rotations a little too much and doesn't play with the wings very often but his portrayal as a scapegoat is unfair. He wasn't the one who blew couple of nice occasions on Wednesday.

    For Florentino a good manager is the last important thing. As long as this guy is the president, 9 CL titles will remain history.

    Considering the location I don't care who will win the final. Although if it will be Barcelona, I'll kill myself.

    If they will be in the final with ManU, I'll cheer for Red Devils. I'll even put my dad's Giggs jersey on.

    There is no pain. You know why? Because I’m used to it. After all it is sixth time in a row. I know that “money can’t buy...blah blah blah” but I’m not the one who bought Mr.I-belong- to-Jesus, who can’t even admit his mistakes.
    Our midfield is a disaster, Higuain is still nobody in the Champions League and in general it’s one big failure since del Bosque was kicked out. I know that. But what am I supposed to do? All I can do is wait for this glorious day when they win CL. I hope I’ll be still alive.
    You’re enjoying this, aren’t you?

    Nice to see you still on here Keith.

    I did indeed say that but don't read too much into it. I'm an eternal optimist. I say they're going to win everything every year!

    How can you bet against Sir Alex.

    He's a living God!!

    Hey Keith, I just completed a list on the 25 Greatest Footballers to never play in a World Cup. Please tell me what you think of it.

    LOL I wouldnt exactly call Terry a marriage breaker. According to reports, Bridge and his missus broke up without Bridge's knowledge of this so-called affair. But hey, who are we to judge Terry on his personal life. Its not like we've never done anything wrong in our life..

    I think Malouda is the kinda player that flourishes in certain formations and is unbelievably shit in another. Nani has always had that potential though, it was just his attitude that spoiled everything for him. He thought of himself as good as Ronaldo when in truth, he'd never done anything to prove so.

    Hey Keith,

    Once again I apologise greatly for even more of this mass, impersonal, selfish, egotistical plugging for reads, but I recently interviewed the first ever American to score for Arsenal, Danny Karbassiyoon. Shyam Parthasarathi interviewed him back in October 2008, and now he's making a B/R comeback as I grill him with even more questions! It's one of my best pieces of journalism to date in my view, please check it out if you have a spare moment.

    Many thanks,
    Yoosof
