Football clubs still represent something more to their fans, even at the highest level. This weekend, the Man United supporters dedicated a long chant to the late father of Phil and Gary Neville, Neville Neville, who passed away last week. These are the kind of moments that are bigger than football itself, and show the close connection that legendary and loyal players like Phil and Gary Neville can have with a club’s fans. Ahead of the match against Tottenham and throughout the game, Manchester United supporters chanted, “Here’s to you Neville Neville, your boys have won the Treble and you knoooowwwwwww”. People may remember the tent that fans are singing under from when the George Best chant first went viral: Though many criticise Manchester United for the Glazer’s take-over and their increasingly international fan base, they are far from void of great fan moments. The tent full of United fans shows that the Manchester club still boast some of the best fans in the world.
