This is why I refuse to get too upset at Aaron Ramsey (unlike certain other players...).

God knows I'd be paranoid as phuq after that if it were me.

after a bad accident like that, yeah i would flinch or think twice before going in to a tackle as well.

He had a reason, an eye for an eye and all that (not that I condone either what Hangelaand did to him or Roy back to Hangelaand)

No need for that though. Great player who just went too far at times.

He had no reason to what he did, Hangelaand thought he dived keane is a tw*t for doing what he did.

Tackles like McManaman's take place every week all over the world, 99% of the time there is no contact and nobody bats an eyelid. Yes it was wreckless but he's really not done anything out of the ordinary, the only reason this incident is getting so much attention and vitriol is because it resulted in an injury.
