It wasn`t too long ago that Sir Alex Ferguson stoked the fires of those who spend big by calling some of the recent big-money signings made by Manchester City (and such-like) as kamikaze signings.

Naturally, those that support City felt otherwise and a mini-war of words broke out.

This morning, someone else associated with Manchester United has come out with a few remarks that could also be seen to be aimed in the direction of Manchester City.

Gary Neville has spoken about admiring those with tradition over those with big spending power, remarking,

“When I was younger, I was a United fan but Liverpool were wining everything and it was a horrible time.”

“It`s jealousy, hatred and passion for your own club. In recent years everybody`s been saying ‘We all hate Man United` because we have been winning.”

“But I have more respect for Liverpool in a sense of their tradition and their history than I would do some of the other clubs that have been coming on the scene in the last few years, throwing a load of money at it.”


Careful Gary, anybody would have thought we`ve never spent big ourselves!
