Neville: Man Utd fans face season from hell

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes this season for fans will be the one "from hell".

Neville admits there is considerable discomfort at the nightmare scenario that could yet unfold this season.

"Oh no, make no mistake about it, this could be the season from hell," he says. "I mean, Manchester City have won the title [by 19 points], they've won two trophies. If Liverpool now win the European Cup and Chelsea beat United in the FA Cup final, to be honest I might go travelling for a year to somewhere where there's no Wi-Fi or phone signal.

"Actually, there might be a few million United fans joining me. What date's the Champions League final? May 26? We've all got a charter booked for the 27th of May. There will be a million of flights booked out of Manchester to the forests of the Amazon.

"Let's just live in hope that Manchester United win the FA Cup and Ronaldo - our friend and boy Cristiano - turns up, scores a lovely little hat-trick, puts us out of our misery in the second half and lets us relax... Nah, I mean Liverpool have done brilliantly to get to a Champions League final. I just don't want them to win it!"
