Watch: Roy Keane Bites Back At AFTV Regular Over Club's Prospects This Season

Roy Keane and Arsenal Fan TV, is there a better possible combination?

We have gone far too long in our lives without these two entities coming head to head, but it has finally happened.

Keane, along with Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, appeared on a special live edition of The Overlap, with the trio looking forward to the season ahead in the presence of supporters of Premier League clubs.

The debate quickly turned to possible title contenders, but someone was a bit miffed that Arsenal were not even considered.

The always upbeat, and often delusional, Ty from AFTV asked why his team were not even getting a mention, claiming it was being suggested that Arsenal were no longer a big club.


This seemed to annoy Keane, who said the panel had said no such thing.

Can I just say something? The three of us here, we have huge respect for Arsenal Football Club. Don't think for one minute we think Arsenal are some sort of small club.

Arsenal are a huge club with great history, but at this moment in time if you're talking about club winning the title (they're not one of them).

I'll sit here and say I don't think Man United will win the league title. That's nothing against Man United, it's the same for Arsenal...

Being out of Europe won't help Arsenal win the league, but it might help them have a better season. We go back to Arsenal this summer, it goes down to your recruitment and can you get the right players.

Arsenal are probably still looking to get one or two players in, but the biggest problem is shifting players out. There are players at Arsenal on huge money and they can't get rid of them. Then they're stuck trying to bring players in.

Recruitment is key. If you have a top class manager then fantastic. We're not writing Arsenal off, two years ago they won the FA Cup so they are a cup team, a lot people here would love to win the FA Cup.

We're talking about league titles and Arsenal are way off it because they haven't got the players or the strength in depth...

You bring players to your club to make them better, [Willian] was never going to make Arsenal better. He didn't have the personality, we saw that at Chelsea a number of times when he was whipped off every week.

There was a reason for that.

This was never going to go well for Ty.


If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Arsenal will not be winning the league this season.
