I stumbled across the this link to a live chat that Phil Neville, hosted with Ozzie supporters yesterday via the Herald Sun.
Phil comes across as a true gent and a great ambassador for our club. I must admit that I doubted the wisdom of taking the squad to Australia but now that I see the interest in the local media and in some cases the passion that our presence is generating, I see the benefits.
The questions in the chat are quite varied and the key nugget of information that I took out of it is that Phil sees Rodwell as a future attacking midfielder rather than defensive or a centre back. I wish we have access to the players' thoughts like this on a more regular basis. COYB!

Looks like Phil was making himself visible. With the EPL being as tough as it is, the way DM is stacking talent, and Phil advancing in age, I'd take his, "at least another four years" comments as playing somewhere on the planet earth, not necessarily EFC.
That said, why not Southern California for Arena?

As for those that criticise his playing abilities, I doubt he would have made some of the mistakes that Glen Johnson was guilty of at the World Cup.

Our Phil may not be the greatest defender in the world, he may not be the fastest, but he IS a good all-round player who gives 100% to the cause, is honest as the day is long, and will never intentionally let you down. And I agree with someone else's comment that he could be future management material.
Oh and by the way, who cares if he supports Man Utd? My brother-in-law is a die hard Villa fan, but I still love him.
