If this is Roy Keane’s final season with Manchester United, at least he’s going out in a blaze of glory. From Football365.

The impression of Manchester United as a club in crisis gained further credence on Monday night when Roy Keane’s blunt assessment of Saturday’s 4-1 humiliation at Middlesbrough was pulled off the MUTV schedules.

Keane (above) carried out his brief to analyse the Riverside debacle in the regular ‘Plays the Pundit’ programme at United’s Carrington training ground this lunchtime.

It is thought the veteran Irishman, currently sidelined with a broken foot, offered his usual blunt assessment of United’s tepid performance, but it appears Keane’s condemnation was too vicious for some senior members of the Red Devils’ hierarchy, who ordered the half-hour programme to be scrapped.

Instead, MUTV executives were forced to show academy action, offering no explanation for the precise reason behind the swift programme change..

Matchday 4 in the Champions League will feature the following clashes for US idiot box devotees ;

Real Betis v. Chelsea (ESPN2)
Liverpool v. Anderlecht (Setanta US).

That said, a global glamor tie of crucial importance will take place at Vicarage Road, where visitors QPR, 8th in the Coca Cola Championship, take on 4th place Watford at 7:45pm. Which gives me another 12 hours or so to come up with gratuitious, negative references to Elton John, or at least a way to work the phrase “Love Lies Bleeding” into a headline.
