Fans loved Gary Neville’s response to an Arsenal fan who claimed he and Jamie Carragher should be banned from the Emirates Stadium.
Anthony Gordon scored the only goal as the Magpies ended the Gunners’ unbeaten run at the start of the season, however, it was riddled with controversy as certain angles suggest that Joe Willock failed to keep the ball in play before crossing it in seconds before the goal.
Meanwhile, Joelinton is seen pushing Arsenal defender Gabriel, while there were cries for offside against Gordon. However, VAR was unable to obtain a clear enough picture of when the ball left Joelinton’s body before it fell to Gordon.
A large number of fans were left raging by Neville, with one in particular claiming he and Carragher should not be allowed at the Emirates again.
“Arsenal should just tell Sky Sports that both Carragher & Neville are both banned from the Emirates. It’s our property so we’ll invite who we want inside it thank you very much,” one fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter.
Neville has since cheekily hit back, writing: “To be fair with Spurs top now we will be coming less anyway,” alongside a winking emoji, with the post managing over 31,000 likes.
The former Man United right-back even suggested he would be willing to sign a petition of banning himself from the ground.
Fans certainly loved Neville’s cheeky response, with one saying: “Shots fired.”
Another added: “Neville cooking session.”
A third wrote: “Cook Gary.”
With a fourth commenting: “Savage, Arsenal fans will never forgive you Gary.”
After the clash Neville said: “I played for a club where a manager went mad after games if we felt a decision had gone against us.
“You feel like it’s us against the world. I get it. Everyone hates us, the refs are out to stitch us up and their bias versus us.
“However, I can never remember the club writing letters undermining the system and the whole refereeing community.”
