Roy Keane Made An Actual Joke On Punditry And Even Cracked A Smile

Roy Keane made a cheeky joke at Arsenal's expense on Sky Sports on Sunday and even cracked a smile afterwards.

After Arsenal's 2-1 defeat at home to Wolves, a result which left the Gunners 14th in the table, Keano let loose his inner Jimmy Carr. Discussing Arsenal's forthcoming game against Tottenham, Keane quipped: "That might be the best game for them to have next week, a derby... going away, maybe less pressure than at home.

"But I still think Arsenal will have enough to stay up. I think they'll be strong enough to stay in the division."

There's actually a beat of stunned silence from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and presenter David Jones as they try to work out if Keane really did just crack a joke, before Hasselbaink starts laughing away.

"It's been a long day, I had to check you were joking there," chuckles Jones.

We can't blame him for his nervous reaction. Keane's pursed smile to illustrate he'd just dropped a joke-bomb on his colleagues is one of the most terrifying things we've seen on live TV.

It's official: funny Roy Keane is even scarier than angry Roy Keane.

There was little to amuse Arsenal fans however, as Mikel Arteta's side have picked up only one point from three Premier League games since that impressive 1-0 win over Manchester United back at the start of November.

One rare moment of fun during the Wolves game was defender Rob Holding throwing the ball down in frustration after a free-kick was awarded to Adama Traore. "He's built like a brick s**thouse, how's he gone down like that?" said Holding visibly, which at least gave a brief moment of amusement for watching Gooners.

But overall, if you've got Roy Keane breaking out his Chris Rock act and producing one-liners at your expense, you're probably in a lot of trouble as a football club.

Next up: a Netflix 60-minute 'Roy Keane Stand-Up Special' filmed live at The O2? Trust us, if we ever saw that live, we'd be laughing harder than Micah Richards in pure fear of Keane catching us failing to guffaw at his A+ material.
