On this page you’ll find all merchandize cards from Roy Keane that were published in 1999 / 2000 and that I actually own. I don’t copy & paste pictures from all around the internet. So chances are that these aren’t all cards available. If you like to suggest one or more cards for me to complete my collection, just give me a hint in the commentary section on this page. Thanks in advance!
As the captain and driving force of a side that claimed its sixth Premier League championship in eight seasons, Keane was an obvious choice for the award. The Irish midfielder led his side with trademark authority as United romped their way to the title with a record 18-point winning margin.

As one of the finest midfielders in the game Keane is at the peak of his profession. He has a hunger and appetite for the game second to none, and motivates his team mates such that they will always believe the next trophy is never too far away.
As a youngster Roy wrote to English clubs requesting a trial. He didn’t write to Manchester United thinking he wasn’t good enough! Captain Keane has come a long way since then, the frenzied speculation over his future 1999 showing that he is one of the most in demand midfielders in the world.
Having signed a new contract, Keane will keep on reminding the fans why they were so desperate to see him stay. At the end of the 1999 / 2000 season Keane’s name should be amongst the contenders for the European Player of the Year.
Over seven years Manchester United’s captain had become a hero to millions of young players and football fans. His heroism upon the football field and leadership qualities has led to him being compared to that other captain marvel, Bryan Robson.
It is no coincidence that in the 1997-98 season, when Roy suffered a serious knee injury and missed all but two months of the season, United finished empty-handed.
His drive and commitment is an inspiration to those around him.

Roy is widely regarded as the best midfielder of his generation.
His all-round ability is second to none and his super fitness allows him to run all day, right up to the final whistle.
A tenacious tackler, he also has an eye for goal.
Having been booked early in the Champions’ League semi-final second leg, Manchester United’s skipper knew he would miss the final. No tears from this tough Irishman though, he scored one of the goals that inspired his team to the final.
Keane plays with a passion. Known for giving 110 per cent in every game, the Republic of Ireland international and team captain is ever reliable.
Opposition players know he is not a man to be tangled with.
