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.
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 ‘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 ‘er, Robbo, I take these.
The class of ‘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.
Fourth round. Four-goal victory. It all sounds right all of a sudden. Three wins on the bounce and unbeaten in the last six in all competitions. Twitter has surprisingly gone quiet and the infamous #MoyesOut mania is fading away. Good signs. All of this means we have a great many things to worry about in the next few weeks.
Famed for the number of youngsters like David Beckham and Gary Neville who were developed in-house, Manchester United have lost some excellent talent over the last few years. The likes of Paul Pogba and Ravel Morrison have left United for various reasons. Morrison is showing promising signs that he is overcoming his temperament issues at West Ham, while Pogba has become an established regular at one of the top clubs in the world – Juventus.
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.
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 £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 £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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
For the past few weeks, Sunday's matchup between Manchester United and Arsenal has been the topic of conversation throughout the media and among Premier League fans. According to the press, this contest could "make or break" United's title run and/or it could define Arsenal as a legitimate front runner for the title.
Gary Neville and Jamie Redknapp were on Sky Sports last night where they praised Arsenal's victory against Borussia Dortmund.
Neville remarked how Arsenal have been able to accomplish this incredible clean sheet by using the same back four that had weaknesses last season. Plus Neville was impressed by how organized Arsenal's defense is.
Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher recently sat down on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football to analyze how defending has changed in the Premier League from when both of these English footballers were being coached compared to more modern defenders such as David Luiz and Jan Vertonghen.
Neville argues that the Premier League clubs should incorporate dynamic defenders such as Luiz and Vertonghen, as they (i.
Malcolm Best hosts the final ever episode of The Football Special, blowing an emotional final whistle on the series. We take a look back at some of the best sketches in the show's illustrious past as voted by the TFS production staff including Joe Kinnear's controversial press conference, some advice from Gary Neville, a respectful footballer, a Stevie G car alarm, an Alex Ferguson team talk and even an appearance from Liam Neeson.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville's tactical analysis and observations on Monday Night Football are becoming so popular that soccer fans clamor for footage of his work on television even though the vast majority of the world don't have access to Sky Sports (unless you live in the United Kingdom).
I recently came across the following interview with Gary Neville that I hadn't seen before, and I thought it's worth sharing with you, the reader.
Manchester United will be walking into a cauldron of noise when they enter Donbass Arena for their UEFA Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk today. Donetsk has never lost at home to an English team in the Champions League and their manager, Mircea Lucescu, has already started the mind games with Manchester United.
Most fans of English football in the United States have no clue what they are missing. Unless, that is, they are using alternative means to watch soccer matches broadcast on Sky Sports.
Sky Sports coverage is universally applauded for shows such as: Soccer Saturday, The Footballers Football Show, Sunday Supplement, and Goals on Sunday (I would like to add Soccer AM to this list, but I'm not sure how many people understand the comic genius of "The Hairy Strikers" and "Away Days").
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey received a glowing review from Monday Night Football pundits Jamie Carragher and Aaron Ramsey last night. Carragher praised Ramsey as being "the best player in the league" on his current form. Neville was also keen to praise Gunners boss Arsene Wenger for ignoring criticism in the media and from Arsenal supporters [.
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.
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.
England coach Gary Neville has suggested Liverpool should leave Daniel Sturridge out of their team to face Crystal Palace at the weekend to ensure he is fit for England's vital World Cup qualifiers. The in-form striker came under criticism during the last international break when he pulled out of the squad and was, somewhat harshly, [.
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.
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.
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.
After last night's result against Borussia Dortmund in Germany, it seems as if Arsenal can't be ignored anymore. With victories over Tottenham, Liverpool, Napoli, and Dortmund all secured, Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal side are making some serious statements this season.
Speaking about Arsenal's victory after the match, Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville were filled with nothing but compliments.
