As you may or may not be aware, Gary Neville recently incurred the wrath of Arsenal Fan TV after criticising the ‘Wenger Out’ brigade while co-commentating on the Gunners’ 3-1 defeat against Chelsea a week or so back.
Neville branded one fan “an idiot” for holding up an anti-Wenger placard during the match before going on to criticise Arsenal Fan TV directly after the match, calling the infamously rant-orientated Youtube channel an “embarrassment” to the club.
It didn’t take long for Arsenal Fan TV host Robbie Lyle to exercise his right to reply…

Several interested observers then approached Neville on Twitter and asked if he’d be willing to appear on Arsenal Fan TV in person to fight his corner.
The Sky Sports pundit duly announced that he’d “be very happy to“, vowing to keep up his end of the bargain if the offer ever materialised…
I will stick to my word. The offer will be made to go on… 🥊 https://t.co/IptB4YmYF6

Sure enough, a week down the line, Arsenal Fan TV have released a teaser snippet showing Neville in the belly of the beast…

Personally, we couldn’t care less about Arsenal Fan TV – a braying horde of faux-volatile, painfully self-conscious man-children – have to say on any given matter, but fair play to Neville for sticking to his guns.
Here’s hoping he makes mincemeat out of them (in conversational terms).
