Gary Neville might split opinion as a pundit but as a co-commentator he knocks it out of the park.
This is thanks, in no small part, to his trademark 'ooooh's, which tend to be more palpable than any of the overly-eloquent post-goal sonnets Neville's broadcast partner Peter Drury spurts out. As the clip below proves, the 'oooohs' come in all shapes and sizes, and someone on TikTok has gone to the trouble of giving some of the best ones a rating out of 10.
Whether reacting to sumptuous goal, a potential penalty incident or a particularly nasty tackle, the Manchester United legend rarely gets an 'ooooh' wrong. He'll increases volume, shift cadence and even add Jon Moss' name into the mix – whatever it takes to match the m-ooooh-d.

"The Gary Neville 'ooooh' is footy’s version of Mike Breen’s 'baaaaaang'," another said. A third added: "There's nothing like a Gary Neville 'ooooh' to liven up a match."
Debate raged in the comments over which 'ooooh' was Neville's best, though most fans were in agreement that his iconic 'goalgasm' – which, legend has it, was his very first 'ooooh' – as Fernando Torres stroked the ball home against Barcelona to send Chelsea to the 2012 Champions League final was the undisputed king.
