Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher get personal in a social media spat with each other prior to their Monday Night Football coverage.
The ex-Man Utd player pulled no punches during a Twitter dispute with his fellow colleague, with it all starting off the back of G Nev’s complaints to train firm Avanti West Coast.
He was left miffed at the service he received while en-route to the Sky Sports studios where both he and Carragher will talk about the weekend’s Premier League action before then previewing Everton’s home game against Burnley.
Neville took to twitter to bemoan the poor quality of service on the train, writing: “Excelling themselves again @AvantiWestCoast. We haven’t loaded any cutlery packs this morning. Forget assessing Ronaldo on MNF tonight I’m covering this lot. Absolute shambles of a company. Morning everyone…”
Of course, Jamie Carragher couldn’t help but sway in, aggravating Neville further, mentioning him in a tweet that displayed a picture of the former Liverpool player holding his cutlery in the first class section of a train from the same company.

Clearly reeling, Neville took the argument up a notch by replying: “You lot sold out to beat tiered lockdowns, won all the pilot events post CV and you’re now celebrating a private contract partner of a Tory government.
“You write for the telegraph, drink red wine and stay in a 5 star hotel in Whitehall. Mr James Carragher Ladies and Gentlemen!”
The response produced a huge number of replies from footie fans, who were watching this argument play out on Monday morning.

Carra didn’t left users down, with another reply to Neville’s jibe, mentioning everything from Neville’s part ownership in League Two outfit Salford City to how he spent his testimonial money.
Carragher said back: “The Roman Abramovich of league 2, who wants an independent regulator to regulate the Glazers but not the class of 92, used his testimonial money to build a hotel for the fans (they still have to pay & Sat was his biggest taking, let’s analyse that bit of Ronaldo on MNF!)”
Trying desperate to get the last word, Neville couldn’t let that lie and sent one last parting shot to his Sky Sports punditry colleague, writing: “Well thank you! Sounds like a great set of achievements,” followed by a thumbs up emoji.

@KevL15727410: On a serious note at some stage you two need to discuss the elephants in the room re: footballs finances. Out of control escalating players salaries, agents fees and state owned clubs. The ESL shambles has conveniently distracted everyone from some of games fundamental problems.
@Bullensblue1: Pair of millionaires bitching over drinking red wine, how much money they make in a hotel and liverpool getting out of lockdown first while the rest of us battle Monday morning in mind numbing jobs…what a pair of over entitled tarts Carra and Neville really are

@JxstJxsh_: Watching two multi-millionaires arguing about who is the more “working class” has been a strange thing to witness this morning.
@brian1childs: A venture that has added jobs to the local economy and was a haven for key workers during Covid. What did Carragher do? Oh yea, broke lockdown to set off fireworks at the Liver Building 👍
