This Heated Debate Between Tim Cahill And Roy Keane Is TV Gold
Whether it was on the pitch or in the studio, you'd have to be a brave man to even consider locking horns with Roy Keane.
It's a scary prospect for most, but not for Tim Cahill it appears.
The Australian football great engaged in a heated debate with Keane following Manchester United's damning defeat at the hands of Arsenal - and, well, let's just say Cahill refused to back down.
Having Roy Keane in the studio analysing Premier League games has been a stroke of genius from Sky Sports.
But having him dissect Manchester United games has made for some legendary TV moments.
From saying he'd have a punch-up with David de Gea and Harry Maguire to his relentless criticism of Ed Woodward and the board, Raging Roy has always got a classic one-liner up his sleeve when it comes to Manchester United.
And United's recent 1-0 loss to Arsenal at Old Trafford was no different.

Cahill joined Keane in the Sky Sports studio as the former Red Devils skipper gave a rather brutal assessment of his old side - who are now hovering just above the relegation zone in 15th place.
But while Keane was critical of the players' mentality heading into the clash, Cahill was focused on heaping praise on Arsenal - and more specifically their head coach Mikel Arteta.
Having played together during their time at Everton, Cahill was quick to commend Arteta for his tactics heading into the game.

"Mikel (Arteta) deserves a lot of praise," Cahill said.
"I agree with you on the leadership, these players are playing for one of the biggest clubs in the worldand they shouldn't need motivation."
Seen rolling his eyes back, Keane then cut the Aussie short.
"Can I ask you one question," he said.
"How many games have Arsenal lost this season?"
To which Cahill responded: "They've lost a few games but they know why they've lost. There's three (losses) but they know why they've lost. They finish the game and they're learning, they're progressing."
But by then, Keane looked like he'd heard enough.
"I know why they lost," the Irishman said.
"They won 1-0 against a poor United team and all of a sudden Arsenal are the new Bayern Munich? Do me a favour."
