Phil Neville: Attended Everton's final game of the season

The 36-year-old former Blues skipper has not ruled out continuing his playing career, although he has also been linked with a role as part of the coaching setup at Manchester United under former Toffees boss David Moyes.

The former United player, who has not played since early March because of a knee problem, could also be tempted to follow his brother Gary into media work.

"I have not made a decision yet - I have not officially retired yet," Neville told the official Everton website.

"Over the next couple of weeks that is the main decision I have to make; whether my body is up to the physical demands of Premier League football. I will sit down with my wife and family and come to that decision.

"I have thought about it but I will take a couple of weeks and have a holiday, then make the decision.

"I am looking forward to the next challenge in my career. It has been a tough season but one of the most enjoyable.

"I am in a position many people would love to be in. I am coming to the end of my football career and I have got many options.

"I have been preparing for this moment for a number of years. I will take the next couple of weeks to wind down and mentally rest after a hectic couple of weeks. Then I will make my decision and I back myself to make the right decision."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
