Giggs reaches 40 and still going strong
Yahoo News - about 3 years
By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Ryan Giggs was the first graduate of the so-called 'Class of '92' to make his mark at Manchester United and on the day he turned 40 he was preparing for the weekend the same way he has for most of his life. The mercurial Welshman has out-lasted David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Gary and Phil Neville, who came off the same United academy conveyor belt, and it is not beyond credibility that he could rack up 1,000 games for the club. United's record appearance maker was one of the side's best players in the 5-0 Champions League hammering of Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday, his 953rd match for the club, and he will be in the squad for Sunday's trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

Playing at United prolonged my career says Giggs
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Ryan Giggs believes the stability of playing for Manchester United throughout his career has allowed him to extend his playing days until his 40th birthday. Giggs turns 40 on Friday but his performances remain of such a high standard that United manager David Moyes is already hinting the Welsh midfielder could continue to play on next season. If Giggs does sign an extension to his current contract his first-team career with United will have reached 24 years and, injury permitting, allow him to hit the 1,000 game milestone. But Giggs admits it could have been so different had he ever opted to sever ties with the club where he made his name, as fellow United youth-team graduates David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville all discovered on leaving Old Trafford.

Danny Mills: England result was all that mattered
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 3 years
England’s draw in Ukraine sadly reminded me of the baffling expectation levels we have in this country. Over the past week or so it’s been conclusively established that England aren’t the best team in the world. They’re not Brazil and they’re not Germany. They’re certainly not Spain. Nor are they going to win the World Cup next year. What England might do is qualify for the tournament and as it stands they’re two wins away from realising that aim. Beat Montenegro and Poland and we’re there. That’s the bottom line, no? I travelled to Ukraine with BBC Five Live and I have to be honest and say I found the attitude of some people – I’m talking mainly about the press – astonishing. There was so much negativity and complaining about what I saw as a good result. Consider the scenario in the cold light of day. The one thing Roy Hodgson couldn’t afford to do was lose on Tuesday. Lose in Kiev and the World Cup is as good as gone. He was without three key attacking players – Rooney, Sturrid ...

Pearce pays price for England U21 flop
Fox News - over 3 years
Stuart Pearce's reign as England Under-21 coach came to an end on Tuesday as it was announced he would not be offered a new contract following the side's humiliating first round exit at the European championships this month. The 51-year-old former England defender has been in charge for six years guiding them to the 2007 semi-finals and the 2009 final where they lost heavily to a German side that contained the likes of Mesut Oezil and Sami Khedira. However, two successive group stage exits since then have prompted the change despite Pearce receiving some sympathy for having several key players unavailable. Pearce was also heavily critical of the players he did take to Israel where they lost all three group games to Norway, Israel and Italy, who lost 4-2 to Spain in the final on Tuesday. It was something of a comedown after they had entered the finals unbeaten since November 2011 and having not concede a goal in their last nine matches. "I'd like to thank Stuart Pearce for his hard ...

Everton vs Newcastle United team line-ups are in. For David Moyes’ Everton, England international defender Leighton Baines is a welcomed returnee at left-back having missed the last couple of games with a groin injury.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has named the same starting line-up that has played the last few games, keeping in tact the three pronged attack of Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse and Hatem Ben Arfa.

    Age 38

    More Details Hide Details On 30 November, after the resignation of Nuno, Neville was named as assistant to interim coach Voro, before his brother took the managerial position two days later. He regularly appears as a pundit on football radio commentaries, and has appeared as pundit on the BBC's Match of the Day programme. In November 2010, he became a top-trending Twitter term after a strong performance against Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale led to a tongue-in-cheek "Chuck Norris"-style internet phenomenon.
    The BBC received further complaints for Neville's comments in January 2015, after Arsenal's Tomáš Rosický played a pass while looking in another direction; Neville said that if he were playing against a player doing that in training, he would deliberately injure that player.
    More Details Hide Details He admitted making an unacceptable comment, while the BBC stated that the tone of discussion was light-hearted enough to suggest Neville was not endorsing violence.

Neville was also a talented cricketer in his youth, and a contemporary of England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff in Lancashire's Under-19 side, captaining England Under-15s. Neville holds the record for being the youngest player to play for Lancashire's second XI at age 15. His mother Jill used to play netball in the local leagues, and is General Manager and Club Secretary for English Football League club Bury. Neville is married to Julie (née Killilea); the couple have a son, Harvey, and a daughter, Isabella.

    Age 29
    Neville scored his first goal for Everton in a 3–0 Premier League victory against Newcastle United on 30 December 2006.
    More Details Hide Details
    In the Manchester United–Everton match on 29 November 2006, Phil and his brother Gary became the first siblings to captain their respective clubs against each other in the Premier League.
    More Details Hide Details Neville commented in the press about the first ever red cards of his long career (he never received any playing for Manchester United), claiming that he would perhaps not have been booked in a game against Fulham if he had been playing for United. However, he finished with more cards than any other Premier League player in 2005–06 (including another red soon after his first). Whilst at Manchester United, he was booked many times, such as in the 2002–03 season when he got far more cards than any other United player in history, despite only starting 5 competitive games. Additionally, in September 2003, Neville also received a warning from the FA regarding his future conduct for his behaviour after Manchester United's game against Arsenal.
    Neville's attitude, work-rate and willingness to play anywhere saw him become one of manager David Moyes' favourites. On 8 August 2006, Neville was announced as vice captain to David Weir, and – on Weir's departure to Rangers in January 2007 – he became the club captain.

  • 2005
    Age 28
    On 4 August 2005, Neville joined Everton on a five-year contract for a fee in excess of £3.5 million.
    More Details Hide Details He made his debut in a UEFA Champions League qualifier against Villarreal, coming face-to-face with his former Manchester United colleague Diego Forlán. The following weekend, Neville made his Premier League debut for the Toffees, against Manchester United. The match marked the first time Phil and brother Gary had played for opposing teams.
  • 1996
    Age 19
    Despite having been in the England squad at the 1996, 2000 and 2004 European Championships, and having 59 England caps (23 as a substitute), Neville was never in an England World Cup squad.
    More Details Hide Details Neville's England career included the honour of being the youngest member of Terry Venables' squad for Euro 96, though he never kicked a ball (his brother played in every match until the semi-finals); he was one of the players omitted at the last minute by Glenn Hoddle when he was selecting his final 22 for the 1998 World Cup. Hoddle's decision left Neville in tears, though media attention was almost entirely devoted to the exclusion of another player, Paul Gascoigne. Neville revealed in an interview that Gascoigne, not usually noted for his maturity, took the younger Neville brother under his wing and consoled him. Keegan played Neville at left-back in Euro 2000; Neville received criticism and a large proportion of blame for England's exit, when he committed a late foul on Viorel Moldovan, leading to a penalty for Romania, which Ionel Ganea scored to win the match.
    Neville was regularly picked for England squads, making his debut on his 19th birthday against China in 1996.
    More Details Hide Details He played alongside his brother Gary in this match; they had appeared together in the 1996 FA Cup Final two weeks earlier and thus were the first pair of brothers to play together in an FA Cup-final winning side and for England in the same season since Hubert and Francis Heron in 1876, 120 years earlier. He was only briefly a regular first-choice player for the side, as a left-back in 2000 under Kevin Keegan's management. He later struggled to make the squad with players such as Wayne Bridge being preferred as back-up to Ashley Cole. He, nonetheless, once briefly captained the side in a friendly match (a game in which England fielded four different captains).
    Neville also played for England 59 times between 1996 and 2007, representing the nation at three European Championships.
    More Details Hide Details He could play in defence or midfield; due to this versatility, he operated in a number of different positions throughout his career, but was most often used as a full-back. After earning his UEFA B Coaching Licence, Neville began his coaching career in 2012, filling in for Stuart Pearce with the England under-21s. When David Moyes, Neville's manager at Everton, left to join Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement in May 2013, Neville was considered for the Everton job, but he ultimately followed Moyes to Manchester United as the club's first-team coach.
  • 1994
    Age 17
    Born in Bury, Greater Manchester, Neville, along with brother Gary, was one of "Fergie's Fledglings". Phil attended Elton High School where he was Deputy Head Boy. He started training with the Manchester United Academy along with his brother, then later joined as a trainee, making his first-team debut in the 1994–95 season but did not get many first-team opportunities until the following season.
    More Details Hide Details While at Old Trafford, Neville helped United win six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the UEFA Champions League. He was not established as the club's first-choice left-back until the early 2000s due to the consistency of the much older Denis Irwin.
