Phil Neville Worldwide sensation!

Comments (33)

I've just been on twitter and looked in the bottom right hand corner. What's that? Phil Neville is trending? Trending WORLDWIDE! Ha ha!

It appears the rave reviews of Gareth Bale last night have been tempered with the fact our Phil had him in his pocket a few weeks ago!

Landon Donovan has even been on twitter to exclaim ?Phil Neville is trending?!? What has this world come to?!?!?!??

That's put a smile on my face today!

Phil Neville is currently trending worldwide on Twitter due to a Chuck Norris-esque trend. There are some beauties like "Santa Clause is only giving Phil Neville the day off", "Phil Neville's right foot was the inspiration for James Blunt's You're Beautiful", "Phil Neville is on Gillette Soccer Special tonight. On his own, watching all four games and reading out the scores" and "Phil Neville gave Alex Ferguson his first chewing gum and dared him not to spit it out".

Even Landon Donovan is getting involved.

Gerry, nice blog posted there. Have no idea how this new media stuff works (apparently shameful for a 32 year old) and even though I've decided to find out, I still don't know.

However, when BBC used to have forum sites for each club there was a simular thread for Big Dunc saying the smae kinda thing that Neville is getting. It was so good, it could have been made into a book, but the BBC dropped those pages as their servers couldn't take any more cap'ain.

It seems to have gone crazy! Supposedly based on the fact that Gareth Bale is awesome, but Pip kept him in his back pocket for 90 minutes.

Here's just a few examples of what people all over the world are "Tweeting".

Phil Neville doesn?t flush the toilet. He scares the shit out of it.

Twitter? tweets? how many tweets make a TWAT.

It's a sign of the times, everything has been devalued. It used to be your 15 mins of fame and that was fleeting enough. It's now your 15 kilobytes of fame.

Twitter, Tweets TWATS, 'nuff said.

Looks like Phil's very similar to Chuck Norris.

Although I reckon Chuck just has the edge as he can probably look up, see an unmarked team-mate ten feet away, play a simple pass and find his man.

Jon Ferguson: I'm willing to show my ignorance. I'm under 30 and so should probably know, but what is 'trending'?

"Trending" simply means a topic is being mentioned by a lot of people; in this case Phil Neville was for a time among the top 10 most tweeted topics in the world, which is quite an achievement given the huge variety of stuff people spend their lives tweeting about.

If you have a Twitter account, there is a section on your page devoted to the ten "trending" topics for that moment which you can filter more locally or globally.

I have just seen Phill Neville wandering aroung in the rain. But he's not getting wet - the rain is getting Phill Nevilled.

Phill Neville has the worlds best poker face. He once won the World Poker Championships with a two of hearts, a juno card, two top trumps and an Everton shiney sticker from the 95 Prem League sticker book collection.
