Everton: Fans reflect on Phil Neville’s playing days in blue

Everton: Fans reflect on Phil Neville’s playing days in blue - Everton

Phil Neville is receiving a lot of praise on a tweet by @thetoffees_com, as the fanbase describes the former Everton man in one word. 

The Mancunian didn’t get off to a dream start at Goodison Park after completing a £3m move from Manchester United in 2005 (via BBC Sport). His former allegiance with the rivals saw the Blues take longer than usual to warm to their newest addition. Neville had spent just under a decade playing for United after rising through the academy, totalling 378 appearances (via Transfermarkt).

How many goals did Everton score in their title winning season of 1987?

However, he repaid the fans’ faith and spent eight years with the Merseyside outfit before retiring in 2013. The ex-England international made a total of 303 appearances for Everton, scoring five goals and assisting ten (via Transfermarkt).

Supporters are reflecting on Neville’s time with the club and are responding to the tweet with the description they feel fits him best. One Toffee has said he was ‘committed 100%’ whilst many others have labelled him ‘professional’ and ‘honest’. Meanwhile, one fan has told those with more negative comments to ‘give him some credit’.
