Carrying on from my previous article which looked at the unsavoury side of Roy Keane, it's worth remembering constrating his attitude towards his on-pitch violence with his view of one of the most inspiring and jaw-dropping performances by any football player, anywhere, at any time.

Of course on Sunday, Manchester United face a tricky away game at Stoke, looking to keep up their 100% winning record in the Premier League. With that in mind it’s worth looking at 8 individuals who have both spent time at United and Stoke in their careers in the game.
Chelsea's Fernando Torres' miss against Manchester United at the weekend, was (if you didn't know already) undoubtedly one of the worst Premier League misses in recent memory.
A second-string Manchester United side swept aside Leeds United at Elland Road to advance into the fourth round of the Carling Cup. It was a comfortable win which was sealed before half time thanks to a brace from Michael Owen and a strike by Ryan Giggs.
Manchester Untied play Leeds United tonight in the third round of the Carling Cup at Elland Road, in what no doubt be a fierce hard-fought match between the two sides, who have had many great battles in the past.
Of course tonight, Manchester United face old rivals Leeds United at Eland Road in a mouth-watering Carling Cup tie. With that in mind it’s worth looking at 8 individuals who have both spent time at United and Leeds in their careers in the game.
