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."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

Do We Need So Much Football Media?

T

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
