Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher are still football punditry’s best double-act.
Micah Richards and Roy Keane are brilliantly entertaining but when it comes to top-class debate mixed with humour, Neville and Carragher continue to lead the way.
The former Manchester United and Liverpool stars have now been working together for eight years and have informed and entertained millions of football fans during that time.
Monday Night Football [MNF] is still must-watch television whenever they’re on together.
It’s never the same when Neville, who is still widely regarded as the football’s best pundit by many, isn’t on screen alongside his mate.
Neville and Carragher both appeared on MNF to work on the Premier League clash between Everton and Burnley on Monday evening.
Neville expressed his belief that Ronaldo, who scored two goals on his second Manchester United debut against Newcastle, is the greatest footballer of all time.
Carragher thought this was nonsense and argued that Messi is far more deserving of that title.
Neville and Carragher’s bizarre taxi journey after MNF
Following the show, which finished at 11pm, Neville streamed his taxi journey to the hotel with Carragher on Instagram Live and it’s a brilliant watch.
They discuss various topics – including Messi vs Ronaldo – while Neville explained why he’s decided to get rid of WhatsApp and email from his life.
Things then took a real turn when they pulled up outside their London hotel, where a replica car from Back To The Future was parked up alongside a host of interesting characters.
Neville eventually got inside the car. Looking slightly concerned, he told his followers: “I’ve no idea what’s going on here. If I blow up, it’s live on Instagram.”
It was then Carragher’s turn to get in the driving seat. Neville joked: “Seriously, watch this one, he’ll drive off in this – don’t worry about that!”
Neville was asked by one bystander if Carragher played for Liverpool, to which he replied: “Very badly”.
The guy then said that his uncle, the former goalkeeper Bob Bolder, used to play for Liverpool.

After taking a few more photos, Neville and Carragher eventually got into the hotel as one of their most bizarre post-MNF taxi journeys came to an end.
