Scholes: I Didn’t Enjoy Playing For England So Why Would I Go Back?

Sven-Goran Eriksson made the fatal decision of playing Paul Scholes out of position to accomodate Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, a midfield pairing that has failed to work ever since.

Out With The Old, In With The New – Giggs And Scholes Replacements Sorted

The problem of replacing Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes became apparent a few years ago when the players crept in to their 30′s. The pair had been such a vital part of our team for so many years, the prospect of replacing their skill, as well as their presence and experience, was not one we [...]

For the final third of the 2005-2006 season, Ryan Giggs and John O’Shea proved to be the best central midfield pairing we had.

He Scores Goals Galore – Paul Scholes

With Giggs’ having two shirts dedicated to him at the MancuniaMerchandise.com shop, we thought it was only fair that red legend Paul Scholes was honoured with a design.

After a goalless home draw against Reading on the opening day of the Premiership season, it was Paul Scholes who scored our first goal of the campaign, finding the back of the net with just 15 minutes played against Portsmouth.

Scholes: Ronnie Better Than Cantona, Keane, Beckham, Giggs…

Paul Scholes is a modest man, a quiet man, who is not at all concerned with the celebrity that comes with being a Manchester United player.

Sentimental Fergie On Scholesy European Selection

As the lineup was announced ahead of United’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich, groans will have echoed out around Manchester.

Anderson Is No Paul Scholes

Last season, whenever Paul Scholes wasn’t on the field, we looked like a different team. He made all the difference in linking our midfield to our attack, spraying balls far and wide all over the park, landing perfectly at the intended player’s feet. There’s not a player in our squad who comes close to passing [...]

Scholes A Consideration For Cup

Paul Scholes is one of the most important players in the United team, whose work rate is rarely backed up with the goalscoring and assist statistics, but who gets on with his job in a manner typical of his personality.
