Obviously I’d never compare Roy Keane with the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. No, Khaled Sheikh Mohammed would probably feel some remorse over that tackle on Alf Inge-Haland. But, well I couldn’t help but think of the man currently held at Guantanamo Bay when I saw those pics of Keane without his beard….
I mean, maybe I just lived in Pakistan too long, but it’s hard not to think that each loses a little of their ferocity, power and status without a fully furred chin. Each goes from plotting mastermind to, well, just an old man.
