    Neville named as the new Andy Gray

    Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has been named as Andy Gray's replacement at Sky Sports.

    The 36-year-old hung up his boots at the beginning of the year after a glittering career that saw him win 14 major trophies with United - including eight Premier League titles and the Champions League - as well as 83 England caps.

    Neville proclaimed himself to be "thrilled" at being offered the job, and he is expected to work alongside former on-pitch rival Jamie Redknapp as one of the satellite channel's top pundits.

    I cant think of anything WORSE!!

    Not surprising, but a carp appointment.

    What is wrong with promoting a football journalist who knows how to analyse the game, and will probably have a brain cell or two.

    That will be another biased United fan commentating then.

    The commentary on Man Utd-Liverpool games will be awful.

    Is this the same Gary Neville that tried to lead a revolt and get England players to not speak with the media and strike?

    Confirmation there of my first thoughts. X)

    Ray Wilkins has been doing Andy Gray's job for a few games recently and he is soooooooooooo boring and such a bad commentator. Doesnt have 1 interesting thing to say. Sky Sports are stupid for letting Andy Gray go, should of fined him, suspended him etc...

    Better than Southgate, He's still unforgiven from that penalty miss, His word's have no value.

    Surely even Man Utd fans must think he is an annoying little weasel.

    Despite hating the guy I admit he was a fantastic right back back in the day, but I have no idea how or why he would be a commentator/presenter...

    Link?

    Little Link

    Can't see it confirmed by Sky though.

    good choice the ladies will love him :P

    I wonder if Neville will smash it.

    Are they going to have a picture of David Beckham in the studio at all times to make him feel comfortable?

    Gordon Brown was in the same boat

    So the other 1% can learn to hate him like the rest of us.

    Leaving all your stupid rivalries aside,Gary Neville is a poor choice, he has lack of personality and has none of the charisma Gray has. Sky are going backwards.

    Don't think he is stepping straight into Gray's shoes. I imagine he is more likely to be another Redknapp for a while first. Can't see them throwing him straight in the deep end.

    Lloyd Weber must have penned that classic. No way the rags could have composed it.


    Oh, and Jacko's dead.
