A League Of Their Own Outs Uber-Manc Gary Neville As A Scouser (Video)

Blood brothers Carra and G-Nev

Famous Scouse-hater and Mancunian legend Gary Neville once said “I can’t stand Liverpool, I can’t stand the people, I can’t stand anything to do with them,” the kind of unbridled malevolence which has made the former United and England star something of a hate figure on Merseyside (not surprisingly).

However, on a recent recording of the rather mediocre Sky panel show They Think It’s All Over, tubby host James Corden actually did something genuinely funny and revealed to Neville that he, of all people, had Scouse blood coursing through his veins courtesy of his great, great, great grandparents ,who themselves came from Liverpool.

Corden even brought out a Liverpool jersey for G-Nev to hold, although the Sky Sports pundit did refuse to do so. Maybe next week they’ll shock us all and out Jamie Redknapp as an eloquent, sophisticated human being.

The episode in question was screened on Friday evening. Take a look for yourself.

    I think it’s benevolently wrong that they have imposed this on Gary. Even though as I am a long standing Man U fan who doesn’t like Gary Neville (dont think he was any good) it would be terrible to have a LFC top thrown at you, I am a massive Man u fan but there were loads of right backs much better than him Carragher and Steven Carr even. I’m glad hes retired, yet another chink in our armour ferguson has wrongly inposed on a great team respectively.

    Gary Neville is a mouse-haired, sewer-scrounging, self-absorbed, rabies-carrying, arrogant, pompous, obnoxious prick/wanker/tosser/douche-bag with no sense of human behavior and should crawl back into that rat-infested shithole he calls home.

    P.S. He was a shit footballer, too (worse than Darren Gibson, and that’s a real insult)

    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA that’s brilliant!!! but also sadly depressing for scousers =P. yuck, to think that we produced a lifeform such as that. ahhhhhhh Gary neville.

  4. Decks says:

    @Thomas Connolly oh cm’mon. its just a good bit of fun. and Gary is an absolute legend. u must be daft to think he was “chink in the armour”. if u are even a united fan u’ll know that he was a great player, absolutely reliable at the back, dangerous at the front… or of course, u have nvr seen him play in his younger days… RED NEV (altho maybe not so red anymore) FTW!!

    IDIOT gary neville! i’m proud to be a japanese/chinese. my great great great great great great grandfather is from mainland china and my great great great grandmother is from japan. thats why i had to face the truth! you really a twat and scum!

  6. Jim says:

    Thomas Connolly lol. You are a joke I can’t believe the shite some people come out with.

  7. Mark says:

    shut up kenji

  8. Mark says:

    Corden ‘I’v never seen these before’

    30 secs later

    ‘here’s your personalised Liverpool kit’.

  9. MJ says:

    considering that your great, great, great grandparents of german descent could’ve theoratically emigrated to england with your great grandfather later fighting against germany in wwII i really dont’t think it’s a massive point.

  10. kkt says:

    ‘man u’ huh?
    think gary neville(your club’s former capt, one of the best english right back for a decade, treble winner) is not very good huh?
    im sure you’re a MASSIVE fan there conolley.
    top top fan i presume?
    if my team had a gary neville i’ll get right behind him. i know a few proper fans of your club. you are the ‘shameful bunch’ that they always talk about.

    carr and carragher better than neville ffs. even our tony hibbert was better than carr. please stop watching football, or at the very least commenting on it.

  11. Matt says:

    Sort your life out Thomas Connelly, did you even watch United in the ’90s?

  12. kenji says:

    Mark is a twat!

  13. Jonjo says:

    There’s the real reason to hate on Neville.
    The man shuns a cotton-nylon blend top like it’s a small pox blanket. All rivalries aside, should anyone really hate another part of one’s country so vehemently?

  14. Andy says:

    Gary hates scousers

  15. Redskywalker7 says:

    Did Thomas Connolly expect some camaraderie from United Hating/GNev hating fans with that comment??

    G NEV is a farking legend!!! Every ounce of him is United, I’ll always be a huge fan. How can ANY United fan dislike him? Top player.

    BTW John Bishop hates him apparently (no surprise) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odsKB2Piz_Q

  16. The Observer says:

    no shit andy x_x

  17. AN says:

    Thomas Connelly, typical glory supporting united fan who knows nothing about the game and their Clube.

    Absolute optimize everything that is wrong with united fans….

  18. Terry Sheddingham says:

    Thomas Connolly – what does “benevolently wrong” mean, incidentally?

    Also: shut up kenji.

  19. Thomas connolly says:

    Can’t believe there are so many people out there indulged in their own false beliefs how many goals has Gary “great player” Neville scored in his career 6 that’s a joke look how many kompany had in way less time. And to you that asks did i even watch utd in the 90s do you mean did i watch them win the treble in 94??? of course everyone did. And tony hibbirt better than carragher?? In your dreams carragher is a brilliant player, ok he’s scored a few ogs but is still far better. I am man u all the way unlike Neville on motd now praising silva and co across the city. so i hope all doubt is eradicated by the above respectively.

  20. mls? lol says:

    Neville’s a 1st class struggle and grunt. Put him on another team and tell me how legendary he’d be then? Right.
