Folks enjoying some exciting Super Bowl action on the BBC were treated with a visit from none other that Ireland manager Martin O’Neill.
Martin revealed to Mark Chapman that himself and Roy Keane agreed that if Ireland qualified for Euro 2016 they would treat themselves with a trip to Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco. Martin noted that Keano was too shy to go on screen, and branded Robbie Keane as “lazy” when he was asked by former NFL player Osi Umenyiora if the player was present.
Sure enough, Twitter lost its sh*t.

can’t envisage being part of a culture that values ad breaks over watching Martin O’Neill talk about innocuous Roy Keane anecdotes

UK TV using Martin O’Neill as a pundit. Brits can never take the piss out of American soccer coverage ever again.

Martin O’Neill in the studio to discuss the Super Bowl is surreal.
