I have to say that I've liked what he's had to say on an independent body reforming football.
Is he a modern day Jimmy Hill who's done every single job in football ( barring being a linesman) who is a respected voice or is he to be treated with caution?

Bit of both!

I like both neville brothers. The amount of dignity Phil has shown is beyond me.

I'm just awaiting the first mention and put down of 'vanity project' though.

When I interviewed John Robb, he talked about coming across footballers on Manchester scene and said Neville was by far the most switched on of them who understood what the various bands were actually on about.

I was listening to Alan Nixon the football journalist on Radio Lancs last night and he absolutely savaged Neville. It was mainly for the way he co runs Salford but other things as well. Basically implied he can talk the talk but not walk the walk.
Not an opinion I have as I've always liked him.
As an aside Nixon was also very critical on Blackpool both on the amount of players we've signed and the type. He watched the Ipswich game and implied we aren't physical enough for L1.
