James' article focuses a Manchester Derby in 2001, where the City player Alf-Inge Haaland sustained serious knee injuries as a result of a crunching tackle by Man U player, Roy Keane. Not especially unusual, but a year later Keane admitted in his autobiography that the act had been deliberate, an act of revenge for an incident some years previous. In this article James looks at the potential actions resulting from this; criminal assault, trespass to the person, negligence and vicarious liability, and debates the likelihood of success resulting from each action.
