“Oh, oh, oh, it’s Carrick, you know, it’s hard to believe it’s not Scholes” is the song that was first penned years ago for Michael Carrick. The fact that a lot of fans (rightly) didn’t see him on a level with Scholes probably contributed to it not really taking off.

However, this afternoon, in our 2-0 win over QPR, our travelling fans sung the song on repeat in the second half and after leaving the ground.

“I certainly noticed the fans singing,” said Carrick. “Our travelling fans are amazing. It was nice to hear.”
