Ironically, Gary Neville is also no stranger to strumming on his own in a dark room
There aren’t enough ‘beefs’ in football. Once we thought we heard Fabio Capello tell Harry Redknapp that he was going to ‘pop a cap on your ass’ but it turns out he was just talking about giving Michael Dawson his international debut.
Thankfully, United legend/moronic scourge on society [delete as appropriate], Gary Neville has riled celebrity Man City fan, Noel Gallagher by quoting Oasis lyrics to talk about how great it is to be a Man Utd fan. Last week, Neville decided that the quality of his musing was well worth the price of getting called a c*nt by millions of people across the globe and he opened a twitter account. Following the Robbie Savage template of coming out with all-kinds of ill-considered shite in the hope of gaining any sort of publicity and in turn landing some media work that’s not the Malta Times, Neville quoted the lyrics of the Gallagher penned ‘Fade Away’ – a charming song about the dangers of not using Persil Colour.
“While we’re living, the dreams we have as children fade away.’ Not if you support United!” Neville tweeted in a more coherent 140 characters or less than we had been expecting, but Gallagher didn’t take kindly to the improper use of his work and – doubtless full of bravado from success of the Citizens’ undignified scramble for 4th place in the league – Gallagher responded with the spicy vitriol normally reserved for Damon Albarn.
“I feel violated. If Mr. Neville continues to use the holy scriptures of Oasis to communicate with the Cockney massive, I shall be forced to come up to Cheshire in the middle of the night, break into his house, tie him to a chair, make him listen to the Best of Simply d(Red)ful while I pull his tash out one grey hair at a time (with my teeth), liberate those Oasis CDs and shit in his manbag. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED…”
We know who we’re siding with and unless he’s got a Champagne Supernova up his sleeve, it’s not Red Nev.
