Roy Keane shaved his beard, killed all our Unabomber jokes

What? Nooooooooooooooooooooo … Please don’t tell us you listened to Alf-Inge Håland, because we never even got to say goodbye. From the homicidal glares cast from Paul Lambert’s left, to the homicidal glares cast from Paul Lambert’s right, Keane’s beard was the perfect accent to a log cabin chic that’d been one of the highlights of the Premier League season:

Aston Villa v Manchester City - Premier League

And now, the beard’s gone, and we can’t help but be a little pissed off. Who didn’t love Dirty Papa Smurf? Why would you kill Anarchy Santa Claus?

Eh, maybe it’s for the best. Like it or not, Håland nailed it with his Saddam Hussein reference. For us, just like the beard, it’s time to move on.
