'Gobsmacked' AVB slams Neville jibes

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has continued his war of words with television pundit Gary Neville, saying he has been "gobsmacked" by Neville's "assumptions" and "speculations".

Neville initially invoked Villas-Boas' ire after suggesting Blues defender David Luiz played as if he was controlled by a 10-year-old on a Playstation after the club's defeat to Arsenal last month.

I like what Harry had to say about this.

"How would you like to be Steve Kean? Look at what he has been through," Redknapp said.

"He hasn't complained about being victimised has he?

"He celebrates with Yakubu after they score a goal and the fans start booing him.

"When you're not winning that goes with the territory.

"You've just got to get on with it. It's no good complaining. It doesn't help. It only gets worse. The only way to stop it is to win."

Gary Neville age 36: 19 seasons with Manchester United one of the biggest clubs in europe. 5 of them as captain. England's most capped right back and first choice for a decade. Neville played faithfully behind two of the best modern right sided players, Beckham and Ronaldo. He has played alongside Jaap Stam, Laurent Blanc, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Steve Bruce, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell, Gary Pallister..... all some of the best defenders of their era and many probably of all time. He has played against legends such as Nedved, Zidane, Figo, fat Ronaldo, Del Piero, Batistuta, Georghe Hagi, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Romario etc etc.

His accolades include 8 premier league titles, 3 FA cups, 2 league cups, a European cup. PFA team of the year 5 times, PFA overall team of the decade.

In his experience he heavily criticised David Luiz's performance against Liverpool, in which they lost and defended very poorly.

Andre Villas Boas age 34: has never played professionally. Has one successful season as manager of a major european club.

Take your side.

I find it funny that people always make sure they mention whether it was just Ronaldo or fat Ronaldo, lmao. Like he can just 'morph' from one to the other, lol. He still kicked as either way.

Was Villas ever a football player ? I thought you had to had some type of carrer before you can be a manager

Never. No you don't but most played professionally at some level. Even Mourinho played professionally albeit at a limited level.

Neville has a bad habit of jibing teams other than united who he heaps tons of praise on. People have noticed it all season and there's petitions etc.. to get him off sky sports. He used to bother me it I don't let it bother me no more as hes just a commentator and you can always mute him lol.
