Gary To Miss Wembley Date

Gary To Miss Wembley Date

It's sure now: Gary Neville's season ended in March.

The United captain sustained an injury in the third month of the year and it just wouldn't budge since that. Gary will miss the FA Cup final though he would have deserved to lead the team out onto the pitch of the new Wembley.


The 32-year-old missed some memorable games since his last one, the 4-1 thrashing of Bolton in which he had played little part, having come off after 10 minutes. He was absent from our memorable victories over Roma and Milan but there are positives, too - he wasn't involved in that shambles of a game at San Siro.

Neville, with his quiet consistency, played a great role in our successes this season but he can't be there to reap the rewards. Of course, he's won seven Premier League titles and three FA Cups so he might survive, I think!

Let's hope that this 'exploratory operation' will work and his return won't be delayed any further so nothing will bother his pre-season preparations.

As a right-back, we won't miss him sorely in this game but his leadership and experience would serve us well. O'Shea's played well at right-back recently so I place my trust in him.

He shouldn't matter much to your game. I think he brings experience and is a good leader but the team is more than capable without him.

His leadership will be a big loss as its difficult to see where the team gets its direction and drive from on the pitch without him. O'Shea has been fairly useful lately and if Chelsea play narrow he may even get the chance to go forward down the flank with Ronaldo

God this hurts.... I am a Spurs fan and for many years, I have hated Man Utd. Admittedly it was out of admiration but I thought Man Utd arrogant. I have come on your site to admit I was wrong.... Man Utd fully deserve their title this year and although I would love to just see a glimpse of Champs League at the lane to crave a bit of top quality opposition, The style that Man Utd play has astounded me. I have never been impressed by Chelsea as a team and I wanna congratulate the team on winning alot of people over by playing superb football. I would like to have seen Larsson at the title presentation but well done anyway. From Steve
