Gary Neville is well mad with Man United

TV legend Gary Neville is very annoyed with Manchester United for their despicable handling of that whole David Moyes thing.  You know the one.  It happened last week or something

The former Manchester United defender was so incensed with United's handling of the Chosen One's dismissal that he just HAD to phone someone to tell them:
"The last 15, 16 hours or however long it's been, I don't like it, it's not the way in which the club should portray itself," the former right-back, who won eight Premier League titles with United, told Sky Sports News.
"But it's the modern world, it's how things seem to be dealt with now, but I'm a traditionalist and I think it could have been dealt with a whole lot better. I believe in managers being given time, I think they should be allowed to complete their work. The idea of giving people three- and four- and six-year contracts and then getting rid of them after 10 months is something that's foreign to me.
I kind of agree with him.  United fans used to pride themselves on being more honourable than other clubs but now they're just the same as everyone else, sneaking in two pints before last orders instead of waiting for the lock-in they used to be inevitably invited to later on by the owner.
"That's just not going to happen any more. It's something that I don't like about the modern game, the fact that managers get sacked every 12 months. It doesn't matter whether it's my club, it's United, or any other club. 
"I genuinely believe there is a lack of decency now in the way in which football managers get dealt with at all the different clubs. They're just so much in the firing line and they accept it's a pressurised job, they get well paid for it, but I think there is a way of decency with dealing with people.
There is a decent way of telling people they've been fired and that's by not getting someone who looks like they work in a swimming pool to do it.  Ed Woodward looks like his wife owns a candle business and went to India when she was 18, telling you over dinner that  "oh the people are just so amazing, you just haaaaaave to go"
