'Stop being so salty': Some Arsenal fans hit back at Gary Neville's 'biased' comments

Gary Neville has been very vocal about Arsenal and the other big English clubs’ involvement in the European Super League.

The former Manchester United man, to be fair to him, has had a real go at all the clubs involved, and we agree with most of the things he has said. However, you can’t help but feel that he’s terribly biased against Arsenal – after he, himself, called for unity.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

On Sky Sports last night, Neville had another pop at Arsenal and Tottenham. He had the audacity to say that he would ‘rather watch the champions of San Marino’ than the two North London sides and labelled both clubs as ‘a joke’.

Predictably, that hasn’t at all gone down well among Arsenal supporters.

Neville is biased against Arsenal

If we’re talking about recent sporting merit, no English club apart from Manchester City and Liverpool deserve to be on that list.

What have Neville’s Manchester United done since Alex Ferguson left? Spent over a billion to win a couple of trophies? Arsenal have done the same or better by spending far less than what the people at Old Trafford have done.

The European Super League has brought in the 12 most popular clubs in world football. Whether Neville likes it or not, Arsenal come second among English clubs in terms of global popularity and we’re the third most successful team in the country. That is why we are in the competition.

Don’t get us wrong, everyone at Arsenal Insider is firmly against the European Super League.

However, some of the things pundits have come out and said over the last two days hold very little merit – just like what’s needed to be a part of the new rogue league.
