A Selection Of Quotes From Gary Neville During The Carabao Cup Final
Quote after quote after quote. Manchester City's Carabao Cup Final win was certainly an entertaining affair, but Gary Neville's brutally honest assessment of a 'spineless', 'pathetic' and 'rubbish' Arsenal performance will go down in history.
In fact, it could be Neville's greatest 90 minutes in a commentary box.
Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva secured one of the most comfortable cup final wins in recent memory as City deservedly lifted the trophy for the third time.
Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal side will be the first to admit that their performance wasn't up to scratch.
I don't recommend any of the above to listen back to Neville's honest commentary on the game, though.

Here are some of the quotes from the final, via Sky Sports.
"I don't even want to talk about them because they've been an absolute disgrace. Ramsey and Xhaka walking at Wembley. Xhaka, walking. Ozil, walking. Why are you walking at Wembley when you're 0-2 down at Wembley?"
"I don't even like the football anymore. The last bastion has gone. Liverpool play better football, Tottenham play better football, there's 3 or 4 teams now that play better football....This is a dark, dark day."
"Man City were a C first half and Arsenal were an F. Second half Man City have been a B+, not even the best we've seen them this season. Arsenal have failed, full stop."
63: "Xhaka, walking. Ozil, walking. Why are you walking at Wembley when you're 0-2 down at Wembley?"

"They proved to everyone and us they're not good enough. Wenger's faith in them has been far too great. They're a disgrace."
"They're an absolute disgrace. Walking in a final at Wembley, giving up - spineless."
"Their team have shown them nothing. I have to say, the football has been bad, the passing has been bad. I bet that's what the Arsenal fans want to do (poznan), turn around."
Finally, and perhaps the most brutal of all, Gary Neville on Arsenal fans leaving early: "They'll be home in time for the trophy presentation."
Somebody needs to drop the last ten minutes of Gary Neville's commentary over a beat because we could have the world's hardest diss track on our hands.
