Roy Keane & Jamie Carragher clash over their combined Liverpool 2020 and Man Utd 1999 XI | MNF
so in the last week or two we have been asking you to pick your
combined11 between the treble-winning manchester night aside of
Liverpoolteam that is romping towards the title and could yet win the treble as well you're gonna it's gonna be very difficult euro in a couple of weeks something is you have maintained this side has won nothing it's going to change you accept that except the Champions League yeah in terms of League oh yeah late I told you I did not want it yet but of course it's done and dusted but it's not officially done yet is it so this is gonna be interesting because of course Road was part of the the
Jamiehas a close eye on on
Liverpoolso why don't we start with the goalkeeper
Jamieand give us your verdict between Peter Schmeichel and Alison well actually on South of the Alison made a save and actually setting commentary that's why is the best goal keep it away and I do believe that right now I think Alison is the number one goalkeeper in the world but I think whence Michael was playing he was also the number one goalkeeper and you probably say the best goalkeeper him for everybody I think he's the standard everyone tries to way to get to so I got a Peter Schmeichel I'm guessing that you would agree yeah I'd agree with that I wouldn't say I like Peter that much but as a goalkeeper and a character yeah you'd want him in goal for you so agreed well what was he like with his feet...
Peter not great but it was the most important thing was he was good with his hands you know back then obviously what inaudible playing off from the back but Peter obviously saved us a lot of big games a big personality big character so yeah a tough guy as well listen I do I have bust up something I've said it before we never bust up with a teammate sometimes it's good it kind of cleared the air but listen we were we were fairly ok afterwards how many rounds did he go no listen there was obviously alcohol involved no Peter now a very good goalkeeper good character and a huge player in to elope and his success we had he United he played a huge partner right back we possibly should have saved this until last Gary Neville or Trent Alexander Arnold think the deadly serious on something like this I think we've got to be judging it on this season alone cookies munchies United play small odd great curries I'm looking at this little people maybe it's just this season I don't think Gary Neville as had a season like Alexander Arnold was Gary Neville didn't have the influence on that Man United's in that sense Alexander Arnold has on this
Liverpoolteam that's what that's what I'd say so I think trends going just because he's got a bigger influence on his team rather than Manchester yeah I've agree with that side of it I think he's been outstanding this year we can we can look about of his defensive side of it that he needs to...
improve on which I'm sure he will as he gets a bit older I think it's hash time Gary because obviously he's an ex-teammate but yeah James made some good points there and if Gary has to miss out so be a Buddha but Gary was a general we talked about being I think the key to being a very good player a top player is to be consistent and Gary was and obviously I went through a lot of battles were garish so it's just very difficult me too it is kind of look at who's better player than who because I've got Lloyd Lee towards my teammates well we'll let me put it this way if Sir Alex Ferguson was picking this team do you think he would have gone for Trent Alexander Arnold I would Gary never no no because it's obviously disliked in the game and and I think even Gary would admit that Trent is unbelievably gone forward but there's more to I suppose in the time that we played it was more to to play and adjust what you do have gone for was very obviously Gary defensively was very solid and product pretty decent up and on the pitch him and Becks obviously had great chemistry between them but not I'd say Malik's verbiage would would pick Gary even now let's go through our fullback Sen Robertson over Owen or I go for I'd go for Dennis Aaron I think he was a brilliant fullback I wouldn't say underrated thought someone who's not probably talked about as much as he should be I would I would go for Dennis a when you know the goals he got...
was well you think you know actually set-pieces taking penalties no I think it was a brilliant listen I think Robertson has just been a revelation what he's done and probably a similar story to everything it'll come on I come from Oldham not for a big transfer fee to Manchester United Robertson has done the same but I would go with Dennis here when I'm sure you would as well yeah no argument Oh Nelly as I've played with her throughout my career Dennis you talk about the modern fullback Dennis could play left back right back scored a goal could have set pieces very rarely injured good personality create lad I ruined for a number of years but Ireland and United brilliant player dennis is a great player your honourable inconsistent Dennis was an 8 out of 10 most weeks most outstanding and always fit always fit when we get to center box I think I don't think it's that big a decision to be honest fair enough to say we'll just put one guy here next to stamp what one would say to you Roy who thinks the best I'll - then - I think Van Dyke's better than Stan yeah at least I'm a big fan of Van Dyke I think officer I think he's the guy is a machine I've said it before but yet was a machine yeah it was fantastic and Van Dyke's would he probably touch better on the board and yeah probably but again yap was a great team here to have and to to them together you know you couldn't imagine considering too many goals of them - what in fact...
did Stan have on my attrition I did when he when he came in again I we always talk about when people talk with players I've played written people talk about
theirtechnical abilities I always go back to what kind of kind of personalities we're encounters but you're Spencer all much time together you're obviously on the training pitch and a dressing room travel and presea and yeah it was a brilliant brilliant guy nice family came from good stock good background brilliant player and again just as importantly the brilliant character big miss when he left big mistake yeah yeah but he didn't wanted to injuries towards you I know if you remember he I think it about Achilles injury but yeah huge loss when he left put Dustin a turd the game you're in you know clears come on go big personalities go but it was a big loss so you go in as a box-to-box midfielder a sit midfield player because you do everything really do anything you want yeah obviously - I want my career changed when I was a younger player obviously a forest I was a more of a box-to-box getting - trying to get a goal I don't send me an item enforced here my game changed I got a blower I becoming more of a sit midfielder but yeah my chances in there to do a job the team's
Liverpoolteam yeah yes she talked about you you're there I think the team I I want to pick up what he thought about this I would actually let's not forget you not disagree with me and the team I...
made my night to play for for to
Liverpoolplay for 3-3 so I'm gonna play a 4-3-3 in cause I think that's the system that most teams play now so I think you and that's it and all you play there probably towards the end you could either yell offer yeah from anticipated no doubt one of it or the best central midfield play in the Premier League who's actually who what I'm saying is you know I know listen no absolutely no chance listen I was very very average player I was very lucky you know the key to my career was I always walked at really good players who just almost carried me along very very lucky this Paul Scholz keep his place in this
combinedteam past yeah scores II again I don't think that's up for debate I'd put scores you up there with I suppose the Dennis situation and I supposed to Van Dyke's a that's not offer the base so he thinks different it's causing no scores goes in absolute great play revelation I actually think that midfield for that you're looking up there is possibly one of the greatest if not the greatest midfield for we've probably seen in British football you think it may be the
Liverpoolteams around the United arson Chelsea whatever it may be I do think that was great for but we are playing for three three the other one in your midfield I'm gonna talk back them inside and I actually think Beckham people talk about Beckham being because of the fate of
theircelebrity status almost that made and...
this global name and he wasn't that good a footballer I actually don't agree with that I actually think that took away from how good a footballer he was people sort of forgot how good he was because it was that it wasn't that back then put him up there as this world star I think I think in some ways he was a little bit under way but that's what that's what his teammates appreciated um II don't oh yeah and basically that's the most important thing it's what your teammates think of you that's the respect you're after whatever about Beck's is I suppose Fame away from the game we always appreciated we talk about the modern players you know doing jobs Beck's for all his brilliant what his socks off opened on that sideline getting back helping Gary getting forward getting goals getting assists so we never we never got distracted by anything like that because we appreciated what he brought to the team was he a good trainer yeah all these lights here what I'm talking about all good trainers all of them that's what did it worry you is that sort of leading figure in the dressing room when all this stuff was coming David Beckham's way no no really cuz part of my job or some of the senior players and we went back to his coming true you'd keep an eye out for these lads you're talking about the progress the distractions for the modern players and I'd only ever come down hard and a player if I tell you is getting...
distracted by off the field stuff and whatever Beck's was doing off the pitch stuff I never felt any time when I looked at him in train that he was taking his eye off the ball to me was still his love and his focus was football yeah he had ollie on a bit and good luck to him that was up to himself but first and foremost he was a footballer does that three work then for you as a three with with Beckham tucked in there yeah I'm just worried where we're gonna fit the other United lads in Giggsy hmm Giggs is not going in my team RG no it's well I've got I've got a front three just drop that bombshell and moved in Oman not judging over this cleavage is him on the 99 season yeah you know many goals he scored that season before that enough for you to get an A Team no but okay let's get to my from three I'm gonna have I think my a right now is the best left side of the tackle or left winger in the world I do believe that um I love Ryan Giggs one of the Great's of the Premier League history longevity all that pain so forth I don't think I probably once stayed he was probably ever the best in that position you may disagree you know I'm better than me but I actually think the numbers mine is getting now or a lot more than what Giggs was getting but you enough city to greatnesses to be consistent Giggsy done it year in year and something you might have the odd season where he might be a 10 order 10 but you want to put that season it's about...
if big games look like idiot under semi-final tell me a player on this planet could have done that what he does well why was he so rotation cuz we just but Blancas was behind him that's what wins you big close yeah he was a very very good player he story me know he doesn't quite make this team but you need a squad to win the big trophy you're aware of that don't you yeah well it's not just about eleven that's why
theirprayers that's why I didn't want to play in the FA Cup rest and rotation we got them we had to do it yeah let's hope they win three trophies you're sure I'll be there yeah sorry you missed the final in there I've suspended yeah I know I was injured I got injured yeah so you're putting gigs in yeah instead of mine eh yeah on the backup scoring three goals and two assists no but like I said you the key to me is to be a consistent player but my knee scree doesn't finish you can't juju mining is currently no but I've got lightly towards guillotine I don't know Manny so it's a bit then come on the rest of it is I'm gonna go forwards right you're at the top of the pitch and I'm gonna go for most seller on the right so Andy Cole comes out I think I'm got your got at you won : I'm here to finish okay what do you think about that the system obviously did this system you're playing is difficult to get collie and your key in so-so but I think it's who York...
ahead of Colt out of York and call so would you have out then you're on about net season you're can call obviously Teddy nollie behind were fantastic so you're honorable if it's just for that season alone how can you leave your key or call you when to call scored 20 goals more subs for 20 goals now and there's still war how long to go we forget this little peels haven't haven't lost the game yeah as well we have won the league yeah if they wondered what have they won this season yet would you want to come back a few months who went to a tree trophies yeah hmm obviously but you're torn about this
Liverpoolteam I think is brilliant I can't speak highly enough of them I think they're fantastic the record over the last year or two or just 105 points or it's mind-boggling but they're it's difficult me to do this because I've got loyalty to these lads that I was in the trenches with I loved all of them they were my teammates was hard for me if you're having a debate about a certain player I can go with one of my my teammates I've got one of the teammates iam sure do you understand that no we understand it but I'm backing off with it with an arguments of why I'm going for that player yeah of course and I get that but I think you're wrong so your conclusion on your team for 33 with York and seller and MANET either side now it's um it's what we do brought an interesting mix of
probably look knighted sorry how would you how would you i'd probably stick to alyssum i'd stick to what was we had at the stat probably bring van Dyken maybe the right backs but leave the rest for for to your can call it so we'll finish a bit my team or Roy's team until he wants a change very much but I'm gonna make it you can so Salle's out the man who scored 47 goals top goal scorer at every season he's being in yeah you put them gigs in okay I give you mr. team Jimmy so your thought on opinion surely told about I get what you're saying 100 percent what do you like what about my father because I'm gonna disagree with you that's your opinion you think only to get in and even add an ID even so maybe shove Gary in her right back cuz Gary gets what take it for Salford game this little team I think right now with the season hasn't finished but I think you want a window if they go on I went to Trimble this year don't know we love it different conversation of course it's just illegal be enough no do you think that the treble can't be beaten but you actually think the United team of always that won the league and European Court was actually best him in the treble do you think it's all about the actual trophies that you win on in that season or you say that was yeah when you're adding about teams it does help if you can back it up with trophies but I look at some of the team's I'd favorite unite I think...
they're so we wonder double in 94 that was a brilliant team you know you've not mentioned we can start talking about some of them players the Canton is he uses fabulous players but in 99 I was at office here there was a special year and we the one thing you've gotta use the world I always used when I look back on my career some of the players or the trophies you might owe you need you need a bit of luck you need a few breaks and we we had a few that year that united seem I think finished with 79 points though people got 76 now I know but that's not gonna outro that's that's ridiculous you could talk about but when you win the league but you talk about points in twenty five point the bottom line is when you win the trophy get one medal you don't turn your medal over and tell how many points you won the league boy look at that matter because you've you've worked hard for it
Liverpoolamazing record motive absolutely fantastic so if that
Liverpoolteam won the treble for argument's sake let's say yeah would you put up how many more
Liverpoolplayers I think will come into it probably two more who would you put in no I like Manny and I like Salah so what's right in the first no no but my light is towards oh I have to say it my light is towards my team so as things stand you wanted to go with Virgil van Dyck because the only one yeah he'd have to come in and Ronnie Johnson which is unlucky but Ronnie lovely if he took Virgil Van...
Dyck out of this
