Red Nev calls it a day so he can keep annoying Liverpool fans
G.Neville – loveable
It’s been a mental couple of months to be a Liverpool supporter.
First there’s those damn yanks, then some nice yanks, then Hodgson, then Dalglish, then Torres, then Suarez, then Carroll – head spinning times.
Now there’s another reason for Liverpool supporters to feel confused and agitated – Gary Neville has retired – HOORAY! But he might be a new Sky Sports pundit – BOO!
Yes, literally days after Sir Fergie said this…
“There has not been a decision about Gary Neville.
“We why make a decision about his future when we don’t need to? You don’t make decisions like that in the middle of the season.
“It’s a load of nonsense.”
…The handsome Neville Brother announces his retirement.
It’s been an emotional morning at Spoiler HQ as everyone took it in turns to reminisce about their favourite G.Neville moments – remember that goal he scored? Brilliant, wasn’t it?
Anyway, the one thing that really came through about G.Neville during our teary, rose-tinted morning was his hatred of absolutely ANYTHING that wasn’t Manchester United – Liverpool, Manchester City, puppies, soft furnishings – ANYTHING. He hated it all.
In all fairness though, he was a good player. When he wasn’t playing ten yards deeper than the rest of his defence, he was solid, dependable and not a game went by without a perceptive commentator saying: “Actually, I don’t think anyone else has noticed, but Gary Neville is a really good crosser of the ball.”
