Speaking in his usual role as a pundit on Sky Sports yesterday, Neville was giving his thoughts on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, following the Gunners’ 3-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.
Referencing the fan channel, Neville said via The Mirror: “I walked out the Chelsea ground yesterday and there was a couple of these Arsenal fan TV camera things everywhere and to be honest it was embarrassing listening to it and watching it.
“I was watching Chelsea fans take the mickey out of them which was a bit funny and I was watching Arsenal fans slating and slanging into him and I thought to myself, he doesn’t deserve that, that’s one thing he doesn’t deserve – he’s done an unbelievable job.”
Of course, with over 300,000 subscribers, Arsenal Fan TV has a significant online presence, particularly on social media, and it wasn’t long until Neville was forced to defend his comments on Twitter.
Arsenal Fan TV presenter Robbie defended his show whilst insisting fans had a right to be heard, and not too long after, Neville claimed he’d be happy to appear himself:

We have absolutely no idea if Robbie has been in touch with the Manchester United legend about a potential appearance, but would we love to see Neville outside the Emirates as fans are screaming for Wenger to be sacked? Absolutely!
What do you think of the idea? And surely YouTube fan channels have as much right as anybody else to broadcast their fans’ views?
