Why?

AdvantagesHas a good brother.

DisadvantagesRight footed on left side and can't tackle!!

"...biased when I say that Phil Neville is possibly the worst player ever to wear an England shirt (and I haven't forgotten about Geoff Thomas). He was in the squad becaue he "can play on the left hand side". No, he can't! I am sure he is a nice enough person but he is not good enough to play in the Premier league and he certainly isn't good enough to play for England. I hope people don't blame him for England going out of the Euro championships because ..." Read review

Dumb and Dumber

AdvantagesA trier

DisadvantagesOut of position, out of form, out of luck

"...cut it at international level. Phil Neville in particular is not international class and he's not helped by having to play on the left as was shown last year against Rumania. It's not his fault and he came to the forefront mainly because of a dearth of naturally left footed defenders, but it looks now like he's well and truly Mr Unpopular. I don't want to be too cutting, because he's obviously a trier with a big heart but that's not enough on the ..." Read review

Not good enough

AdvantagesPunch bag, Scapegoat

DisadvantagesUseless wanker

"...or scapegoat and this year Phil was it, and deservedly so. He was poor in every respect (as to be fair so was everyone except Beckham), not only his in-the-box tackling which all Man Utd fans know is not his strong point anyway (just ask Peter Schmichiel!!) but also in the passing and holding the defensive line. I know he was'nt playing in his preferred position but he's supposed to be a world class player and if not he shouldn't have been in the ..." Read review

awful - is he really a footballer?

Advantageshe doesn't play for my team

Disadvantagescan't pass, tackle, cross, control the ball or think like a footballer

"Philip Neville is unfortunate/fortunate in that he is the only recognised natural left-sided defender available to the England squad. He is fortunate because this is the only reason he got the chance to play for England, but unfortunate because the poor lad is out of his depth at international level. He doesn't have the skill or the brain and he would be better suited to the lower leagues in England. His last-ditch tackle against Romania was the icing ..." Read review

Surely we coul do better than our Phil!

AdvantagesYou're having a laugh!

DisadvantagesAs if you need telling

"...excuse for the fact that Phil Neville will never be an international class player. For god's sake Kevin, he can't even get into his club team and when he does he's hardly spectacular. His mistake versus Romania was unfortunate but not exactly a surprise. A naturally left-footed player would have dealt with that situation comfortably - which reminds me, was Gareth Barry injured or too inexperienced despite impressing hugely in his limited chances in ..."

He's ok that tackle apart!!

Advantagesdistribution, class

DisadvantagesStupid foul at euro 2000

"...his head at Euro 2000, Phil Neville is actually quite a decent player. Him and his brother can form the basis of England's defence for many years to come. he is equally at home in left or centre defence, which is an asset. he plays the ball out of defence very well, and he can also play in midfield if needed. He is again a Man Utd wonder, and so he has top class experience, I don't knwo what he was doing on that tackle but i am sure he will get over ..." Read review

Stop slagging him off

Advantagesace player, well fit

Disadvantagesnone

"...and most supported football club, Phil Neville happens to be my favourite player. He's well talented and probably the most versatile player in england. Not to mention the fact how fit he is!How can any one call him dum? Have you ever spoke to him coz if you had he really isnt dum, just like david beckham. How many of you have ever spoke to him? He's really nice. So go get a life, if you have nothing better to do than slag him off! Come on united and ..." Read review

PANTS PLAYER

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesNONE

"Phil Neville is the most overrated England player ever to have pulled on a England shirt he can’t tackle , he can’t go past players sometimes I wonder why oh why does Kevin Keegan pick for every match. He has nothing to offer us and will never be any use to us at all. The only reason I can see that he is picked for England is because he plays for Man Utd and that is no reason for any player ever to get picked just because they play for Man Utd. He ..." Read review

RUBBISH!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesWay out of his depth at international level

"This is the worst player to pull on an England shirt since Grham Taylor was in charge. It beats me how anyone who doesn't even play regular first team football can even get in the side - but then I suppose you only have to look who he plays for. Neville can't pass, can't run, can't cross the ball and most definately can't play football. He lacks any semblance of vision which is probably why Kegan likes him. His clumsy, uninteligent foul in the dying ..." Read review
