The question is simple really, who involved in football past or present regardless of role should have been banned from football for life for any action?

My first choice would be Roy Keane.

Yes he was a great player in his day and basically was SAF incarnate on the pitch, but the incident I'm referring to is for when he purposely went out to injure (and admitted it) Alf-Inge Haaland's, in a tackle that would ultimately end his career.

Yes Haaland was no saint himself, but purposely going on the pitch not thinking of winning the match, and going out there solely to injure a fellow professional is the act of a thug and a coward, and is something that should be left in the past of football after the 80s.

And since, Keane has proved to be little more than a loudmouthed prick, when he threw a temper tantrum and was sent home from the 2002 World Cup that proved it more in my opinion (also IMO, the Republic of Ireland were all the better without him at that tournament), and as a manager seems to have learned nothing from his time playing under SAF other than screaming at his team, without picking up any of the reasons SAF had for his "hairdryer" team talks.
 
John Fashanu for his disgraceful elbow on Mabbutt, plus he's an arsehole of the highest order.
Ben Thatcher for his assault on Pedro Mendes ( Thatcher was a dirty cunt ).
Stephen Hunt for his sly knee that altered Petr Cech's life.

There's plenty of others.

Fash The Cunt.

...Always sickened me that his assault on Mabbs earned him the good natured nickname 'Fash The Bash'.
