The debate on player safety continues. In the news this morning it’s Phil Neville’s turn to share his fears:

Presumably you are referring to your brother the shy and retiring Gary Neville (incidentally the owner of the most magnificent facial hair in football) Philip? Or perhaps your Dad, the ingeniously named Neville Neville.
Come on – there is a serious debate to be had here, but sometimes jokes just write themselves.
To be fair though it is actually a pretty interesting interview. You can listen to it here.
