Gary Neville mocked after Jamie Carragher Arsenal transfer verdict and the reaction is brilliant
Arsenal have been busy in the summer window, and Jamie Carragher is impressed, but some fans still can’t resist poking fun at his Sky Sports teammate.
Arsenal will be desperate to go one better this term in their bid to land Champions League football, and there is plenty of excitement ahead of the new season, which starts this weekend.
The excitement only grew when the Gunners thrashed Chelsea 4-0 and Sevilla 6-0 in their final pre-season clahes.
After those performances, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher said: “I think the signings Arsenal have got are really good. I think Jesus is a great signing.
“Look what Arsenal have done in pre-season. I know it’s pre-season games, but to beat Chelsea by that score line was pretty impressive.”
Those comments sparked an impersonation from one Arsenal fan named ‘MaidenTaiwan’ on Reddit.
He wrote on Reddit, claiming Neville would say: “At the end of the day, what have Arsenal really done?
“They’ve added two castaways from City and a player to compete with their new captain. I have to say, I’m a bit perplexed by it. And I watch the preseason games, and the Arsenal players are celebrating like they’ve just won the league. Over a preseason game!
“Just look at the talent Man City have added, and Liverpool — and Arsenal are miles off those clubs!
“And Tottenham have now got Richarlison, and Bissouma. Chelsea have brought in Sterling and Koulibaly.
“Proper footballers. You can’t discount the experience, Jaime. And now United look like they’ve done a coup to steal Arsenal’s top target and keep Cristiano Ronaldo.
“He’s like a new signing, Ronaldo! But what have Arsenal really done? I think they’re going to struggle, I really do.”
Plenty of fans thought the impersonation was a funny one. Here’s how they reacted.
Ife2105 - “I swear you could’ve told me he actually said exactly this and it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.”
Manc_1011 - “I can hear his voice..”
Chibzydaze - “Listen mate, I don’t like Neville either but kidnapping and forcing him to write his opinions on your Reddit account is a bit too much, let him go.”
Bearded_booty - “This is so accurate to him that I want to upvote it. At the same time it’s so deeply wrong and blind that I don’t want to upvote it. Well done, you nailed it.”
Nimbus1997 - “You’re his script writer aren’t you?”
Qtdsswk - “Are you Gary Neville in disguise?”
I_am__a_Malayali - “Mate this is exactly how he would’ve said!”
