It's Jamie Carragher and Richard Keys in a Monday Night Football off!

Richard Keys and Andy Gray were behind Sky's football revolution of Monday Night Football, before taking their leave of BSkyB in controversial circumstances in 2011.

They have since decamped to Bein Sports in Qatar, where the duo continue to host live football, including their own version of Monday Night Football titled....Monday Night Football. All this while the original Monday Night Football continues on Sky, under the stewardship of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.

Keys has helped to separate the two shows by referring to his show as The Real MNF.

Carragher was widely praised for his furious takedown of the Arsenal players after last night's abysmal showing against Crystal Palace. He tore into Theo Walcott for his empty words after the game, before pithily skewering the rest of his teammates by citing Graeme Souness' infamous criticism from a couple of years ago:

They are a team of son in laws....what father would want his daughter to bring any of those home!? I'm serious! Bottling it, cowards, jumping out of challenges. What type of man would want his daughter to come home with any of them?

Not everybody was impressed with Carragher's words, however. Richard Keys did not approve, and tagged Carragher in the tweet expressing this disappointment.



Durham once called Carragher " a bottler" on TalkSPORT for considering retirement from international football. Carragher hear the criticism as it went out, and phoned in to complain:

Don't ever call me a bottler on radio with all those thousands of people listening. I've had the stomach to fight for my place for eight years.


Carragher also responded to Keys' criticism:



Keys didn't let it lie there, and stoked the failure closest to Carragher's heart:

To which Carragher responded:

This might yet rumble on.


It has indeed rolled on, with Carragher asking Keys' views on his sacking from Sky.

And Gary Neville has waded in too...
