Revealed: the nickname Everton players have given captain Phil Neville

Say hello to “T-Bag”

Theodore Bagwell and Phil Neville

To most of us, Everton’s captain is known as the second greatest player ever to come from the Neville family. To his team mates, however, Phil is known as T-Bag, thanks to his passing resemblance to the character from Prison Break who no one likes but always seems to be involved in all the plans somehow.

With his darker hair and penchant for whispy face art, we think Gary Neville is a better look-alike of the murderous one-handed child molester, but thumbs up to the Everton squad for coming up with an original nickname, resisting the temptation to lazily adding ‘y’, ‘o’ or ‘meister’ to his surname.
