Im Sorry....... Neville

Recommended Posts

But how can you say the challenge from diouf wasnt malicious. you can clearly tell he wasnt going for the ball and he very nearly ended your career.

 

got nothing against neville but in my opinion he was being too nice. he should have gone all guns blazing and condemned the twat for what he is.

 

btw im refering to the interview he gave for those who dont know what im on about

You are missing the whole point of your comment and attempting to deflect what you have said is pathetic, wishing an injury on an Everton player is unacceptable.

 

Phil Neville has led by example, he has been a leading light for us this season, and you are a KNOBHEAD.

dnt mind mancs no problem with them, just think hes average at best and doesnt do anything particularly well, cudda got a much better player for the value ... he gives the ball away constantly with his chipped long balls, his tackling is garbage ... just a bad player

you name a better midfield player for £3m then, who can also cover both full back positions and can bring alot of club, european and international experience

No point discussing it Steve, Craccer's opinion is obviously clouded by the fact that he knows Fook all about Football. <_<

 

Neville is not and never has been a quality passer, what he is is a defensive midfielder, who can play in both fullback positions and is a good organiser. On top of that he will give you 100% effort in all positions, and in every game.

 

3 million was a steal for a player with 50 odd caps for his country, and only last month was still in the England squad.

how he is in the england squad is beyond me

hes nt good defensive mid, nt good at rb and nt good at lb, hes a semi -useful squad player which imo doesnt merit 3 mil ....

you say i know 'fook' all about football, since when has phil neville been a good organiser ... surely good organisers get their team out of the box and push out wen theres a chance, tells peoplel ike howard to just cool it and keep hold of the ball..does he EVER do that? NO

What do you want Craccer?, a team full of flair players who ping balls around with deadly accuracy. Look beyond the footballing ability son and you will see what a bargain Pip was to us, and what he offers in the way of experience and leadership.

 

He is not the most gifted player in the Prem, but he is one of the most versatile, and to us that means an awful lot with our shoestring budget and limited squad.

 

I can be a knob head, but my judgement on footballers is always based on what they offer to us as a club, not what they can do as an individual.

IMO £3.5million was too much to pay for a fringe player, and I thought that at the time and I still do. He's not the best player in the world but I think he makes a cracking captain, and after his first game for us I was thinking "he's going to be our future captain".

I've been to far to few games this season to really coment on Neville!

But something that sticks in my mind was the league game at home to

Blackburn.Fairly early on Neville went for a 50/50 with Dunn,there was

no way he was pulling out of that one....the friggin ground shook,he

(Neville)did get slightly injured.......Dunn one of their best players limped

off,never to return.Not too many of our squad would have went for that

ball with the rather weighty Dunn!!He gives 100%,didn't he cross the ball

for that AJ goal at Spurs?

Not the best in the world!.....but then nor are we!.....£3million...Bargin!

to my knowledge. he has made 3 assists and 1 goal this season. plus playing in right back left back and centre of midfield.

 

now im not saying he pele far from it. but his contribution to the club as a skipper and a player have been great. 110% effort and not a bad word to say about it either. good value

Theres no point at all Neville being a utility player when hes shite at fullback and central midfield carnt tackle cross pass but he is an ok defensive midfielder ..3.5 million can't buy much so it wasn't to bad. he's a decent captain and will put 110% every time, but imo Neville shouldnt be getting in our starting 11 next season after a few buys. does anyone agree?

not sentiment liam, he does add organisation to our team. i know his distrubution is rubbish, when he tries to make long passes. if he made more short passes it would be better, but i do believe we are a better team for having him around.

 

his main job is to keep us together on the pitch, to keep us doing what the manager tells us too. so if pip isnt telling us to push out, then moyes isnt telling the team to push out. he has to be the managers voice on the pitch.

 

and i bet if he wouldnt have left united he would have been in their midfield ahead of john o'shae most of last season

Dont know if most of the members can remember the last great team we had back in the 80s, but we had two midfielders in that side who couldnt make that killer pas to the forwards, and in fact couldnt pass a ball to save their lives.

 

What Peter Reid and Paul Bracewell brought to that team was to stop the opponents midfield from playing, win the ball and give it to somebody who could do something with it, usually a ten yard pass to the wingers Kevin Sheedy one side, Trevor Steven on the other side.

 

Unfortunately, today we dont have a single winger in the team or even in the squad, and until that problem is sorted we will inevitably have to persist in punting the long balls up to the corner flag, which for 50% of the time will Go wrong.

 

You wont finish a Jigsaw puzzle by trying to put pieces in that dont fit, midfielders playing as wingers, centre halves playing as fullbacks, and most of our players playing in positions they are not comfortable with, is not the best way to produce a Winning team. Hopefully that problem will be addressed by the manager come summertime.

Game of opinons. I felt Bracewell had great Vison as well as being the master man marker.

 

Cup final Reid thru to lineker, Moran chomp, 1st ever cup final send off ( we all no the rest )...Cracking Ball though.

Yeah, i agree on the odd ball Pat, but both players where more renowned for their tigerish Tackling on the opponents, and driving the team forward, a la Keane, Viera, Gerrard, and such, altho Reidy and Brace could pass a ball it was usually to give it to someone else who had the Ability to do the damage.

 

PS............. Thought it was Reidy who got pulled down by Moran. ??? I May be wrong.
