Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville’s tactical analysis and observations on Monday Night Football are becoming so popular that soccer fans clamor for footage of his work on television even though the vast majority of the world don’t have access to Sky Sports (unless you live in the United Kingdom).
I recently came across the following interview with Gary Neville that I hadn’t seen before, and I thought it’s worth sharing with you, the reader. It was recorded in August at the Edinburgh TV Festival, and it shines more light on Gary Neville, the pundit, the work that goes into the Monday Night Football broadcasts, his insight into Sir Alex Ferguson and much more.
Here’s how the Edinburgh TV Festival sums up the interview:
As a player he divided opinion, but now football fans are united in their praise for former Manchester United and England legend Gary Neville, who has become one of sport’s most insightful broadcasters. His thoughts and analysis on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football have helped make the show compulsory viewing and this is your chance to hear Gary’s views on all things football and his take on the TV industry.
Interviewed by MNF presenter Ed Chamberlin, Gary will discuss his incredible career for club and country, providing a fascinating insight into the changing room of the world’s biggest football club, the highs and lows of several campaigns for England and of course life under Sir Alex Ferguson.
What leadership skills can you learn from Ferguson? What was the secret to United’s winning mentality and does it apply to making programmes and running Channels? What makes MNF the show it is? And of course who is going to win the Barclays Premier League? Ed and Gary will discuss these subjects and more, including taking delegate questions, in this rare appearance.
