Quote of the Night: From my favorite Irish football player Roy Keane's autobiography discussing the possible signing of the (aptly named) Robbie Savage.
'I rang Mark Hughes. Robbie wasn't in the Blackburn team and I asked Mark if we could try to arrange a (transfer) deal. Sparky said: 'Yeah, yeah, he's lost his way here but he could still do a job for you.'' Keane explains.
'Robbie's legs were going a bit but I thought he might come up to us, with his long hair, and give us a lift - the way Yorkie (Dwight Yorke) had, a big personality in the dressing room. 'Sparky gave me permission to give him a call. So I got Robbie's mobile number and rang him. It went to his voicemail: 'Hi, it's Robbie - whazzup!' like the Budweiser ad. I never called him back. I thought: 'I can't be f**king signing that.'"
