Sky Sports analyst Gary Neville appeared on television in the United Kingdom last night and criticized Matt Jarvis's decision not to dive in the penalty area after the West Ham United midfielder was fouled by Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna. Jarvis stumbled but stayed on his feet, but by that point, the ball had already left the penalty area and the opportunity to score was gone.
After last night's Monday Night Football game between Spurs and Sunderland, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville claimed that the whirlwind of speculation surrounding Tim Sherwood was down to "media terrorism". Given that the story that Sherwood is to be replaced at the end of the season was broken by the very broadcaster he was working [.
Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were back on television in the UK last night for the British version of 'Monday Night Football.' As always, Neville and Carragher had plenty of salient points to share.
This week's episode has been broken down into eight separate short videos.
On today's edition of Monday Night Football on Sky Sports, pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher discussed whether Liverpool can win the 2013/14 Premier League title.
When Carragher began to discuss the topic, former Manchester United footballer Neville made a face and joked that god was playing a trick on him with Liverpool being top of the league, sitting beside Carragher, who used to play for Manchester United's most hated rival (the Reds).
The Champions League Semi Final draw takes place this Friday and I am asking if you believe in fate? Just ask any Chelsea fan back on that night in Munich if they did. Forget the fact that there are two ties still to be played this evening to complete the four Champions League semi finalists, Jose Mourinho will be drawn to face Real Madrid as it's destiny.
I keep saying it but you can never ever underestimate the influence of Mourinho! Whether it's in the dressing room, on the training ground, during games in that technical area or in his press conferences, there is a reason why he is the best in the world!
I was watching SkySports Monday Night Football last night and the post match analysis and for me Gary Neville got it spot on.
Chelsea are 'toothless', according to former Manchester United defender Gary Neville. The England coach criticised the Blues' lack of threat up front, but says he can't understand why Jose Mourinho has refused to give Demba Ba a fair crack of the whip. Ex-Newcastle striker Ba has been third-choice forward all season and now finds [.
Delighted to be part of @salfordcityfc in the future! For clarity No name change/ no ground change and management and committee as before! Gary Neville (@GNev2) March 27, 2014 Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt are set to become the new owners of non-league side Salford City.
"@iamcallum: @GNev2 Would you ever want to manage Man U or England?" Yes Gary Neville (@GNev2) March 24, 2014 Watch out, David Moyes. Manchester United legend Gary Neville has confirmed that he wants to manage the club one day. As if having one manager elect working on his staff, in the shape of Ryan Giggs, [.
Since making his post-retirement move into the meeja, Gary Neville has, quite rightly, been festooned with plaudits for his sensible, passionate and intelligent punditry for Sky Sports, almost instantly accruing himself a phalanx of appreciative fans one of which is actress Keira Knightly, who's world has apparently been rocked by The Nev's insight and tactical astuteness.
Pirates of the Caribbean actress Keira Knightley has revealed herself as an unlikely fan of Gary Neville's punditry skills. Knightley, who also starred in football film Bend It Like Beckham, has revealed that she just can't get enough of the Manchester United legend's incisive commentaries for Sky Sports.
Gary Neville insisted that United players are more at risk of facing the chop than David Moyes after a dismal campaign reached its nadir against Olympiacos on Tuesday night, leaving United on the brink of being knocked out of the Champions League, the only competition which could rescue their shambolic season.
Manchester United head into tonight's Capital One Cup semi-final second leg with a 2-1 deficit to overhaul against Sunderland, with the Old Trafford faithful expectant of progression against a side that has struggled domestically this term.
David Moyes' men have had a bad run of form recently, with four defeats in the last five outings in all competitions playing their part in souring the season for the reigning champions.
Gary Neville is not convinced that Juan Mata would be the right fit for Manchester United.
Tuesday's newspapers are linking David Moyes with a Â£37million bid for the out-of-favour Chelsea player, who was left on the bench for the Blues' 3-1 victory over the champions at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Tomorrow morning's British tabloids are jumping on the transfer gossip that Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata may be heading to Manchester United in a Â£37million deal.The Daily Telegraph hasthe exclusive. Meanwhile, the competition is trying not to get outdone, so they've added their own twist.
Gary Neville believes that Manchester United need to sing three or four players if they're to return to the top of the Premier League as swiftly as possible, for the current crop isn't good enough to sustain a title challenge, which has been widely highlighted in the first six months of this season.
Man Utd's Rio Ferdinand 'Considering Retirement' Report - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Man Utd's Rio Ferdinand is considering retiring from the game at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old has found the amount of first team action under new manager David Moyes severely limited this season, and 'The Independent' claim that he is now mulling over whether to continue to fight for his place, or enter the world of football punditry.
Boasting the likes of Rooney, Lampard, Terry, and others, it is difficult to fathom the lack of success for the English national soccer team. Since defeating West Germany in 1966 4-2, England has failed to win the Fifa World Cup. England has not reached the semifinal of a major tournament since Euro 1996 and in Euro 2012 they were defeated by Italy in the quarterfinals.
"The first time I played with them," said Bryan Robson of Manchester United's Class of '92. "You're thinking â€˜right, I'm gonna have to look after a couple of them.' Well, I think it was in the first five minutes, Scholesy smashes one of their centre-halves, then you've got Gary Neville belting their winger all over the place [and] we get a free-kick from about 20 yards out and Becks goes â€˜er, Robbo, I take these.
The class of â€˜92 will always be Ferguson's greatest achievement with the youth academy at Manchester United. They're a generation that will never be forgotten, a generation that replicated the club's glorious success of the 60s, broke records and transformed Manchester United into a global giant.
From the studio that brought us the documentary 'Senna,' there's a new documentary coming soon entitled 'Class Of '92,' which covers the six players who came through the Manchester United academy and became superstars. Those six men are David Beckham, Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville.
With both Manchester City and Liverpool in the race to win the title this season, Gary Neville has been asked which side he would prefer. Like the rest of us, he hopes that neither do, and would prefer it if Arsenal did.
"I've been asked who would I rather win the title, Liverpool or Manchester City?
Yesterday, Gary Neville was critical of prospective new Leeds owner, Massimo Cellino, who has sacked the manager and was then the cause of protests by the fans outside Elland Road.
The word Neville used to describe Cellino was "imposter". Whilst it's admirable to see Neville speaking out on behalf of the fan, it is unsurprising that his comments caused quite a reaction amongst United fans.
If Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography proves anything about his time in charge then it's that we were truly blessed. During his 27 years at Old Trafford, United played, for the most part, expansive, attacking football utilising some of the finest players ever to have graced these shores.
Ferguson has repeatedly stated how fortunate he feels to have had so many great footballers in his charge, and picking a best team of his managerial reign is no simple task.
I reckon when Terry and Cahill sleep at night Matic stands at the door watching guard! Gary Neville (@GNev2) March 15, 2014 Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic probably guards the bedrooms of John Terry and Gary Cahill at night, according to former Manchester United defender Gary Neville. The Sky Sports pundit is so impressed by [.
Gary Neville has given a food related interview to The Guardian, after the recent opening of his restaurant, Cafe Football in Westfield Stratford City.
"I first persuaded my dad to take me to Old Trafford with him when I was four," he said. "We'd leave Bury around 11am, then have pie and chips at Marina's Grill â€“ a traditional northern cafe near the ground.
Everyone's favorite soccer TV pundit, Gary Neville, discusses the challenge he'd face if he were to pull on his boots again for real and what makes Messi and Ronaldo the best two players in world football.
He also shares some expert analysis on why the modern game is harder for defenders compared to just a few years ago.
Eric Harrison, the coach hailed for bringing through the brilliant Class of '92, has explained to Gary Neville exactly what it entails to cut it at United. He also claimed that his wife told him that he was too harsh on the youngsters, claiming that he was a 'disgrace' for the way he spoke to them.
Daniel Sturridge has walked off the training pitch before the end of England's session with a suspected injury. The Liverpool striker left the pitch accompanied by coach Gary Neville. He had been playing as part of a bib-wearing team that looked distinctly like England's starting line-up to face Germany tomorrow.
