He Hates Scousers

It was only when I watched Match of the Day that evening that I saw Gary Neville’s celebration following Rio Ferdinand’s injury time winner. Like Neville and every other Manchester United fan, I had gone absolutely mental, so missed his thigh slapping and badge holding. Of course, like every other time the two clubs meets, [...]

Chelsea Trying To Escape Racist Connections But Add Insult To United Injury

Embarrassed Nev Thanks Fans

With Gary Neville’s comeback date postponed time and again, whilst talk of his retirement was rife, I had a ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ attitude to whether he would play for the first team again.

Liverpool Fans Attack Neville

“Gary Neville is a red, he hates scousers” goes the popular chant at Old Trafford.

Neville ALMOST Made Villa Start

United fans would be forgiven for getting increasingly frustrated with the Neville injury business.

During what was otherwise a rather disappointing season, with just the League Cup serving as consolation for silverware, a big highlight was the last minute winner against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Goal King Neville – Scores Against Everton

Gary Neville’s last goal for Manchester United came in 2004, when he scored in our 2-1 win against Lyon. The rare opportunities Neville has had since then usually are of the ‘head down and wallop it’ variety, usually ending up in the stands or straight in the path of the keeper. But we don’t love [...]
