Paul Scholes, the best English midfielder ever?

The English maestro like wine has got better with age, the vision and passing have gone somewhat unappreciated over the years, which was reinforced by his Spanish counterpart Xavi  “He can play the final pass, he can score, he is strong, he never gets knocked off the ball and he doesn’t give possession away. If he had been Spanish then maybe he would have been valued more

The little devil is no angle though, despite his impressive collection off silver wear the little rascal is very lucky not to have broken someone’s leg over the years. Challenges Roy Keane would have proud off should have brought him a reputation similar to martial arts expert Nigel De Jong, but it hasn’t. Over the years I recall the disgraced Andy Grey “laughing off” horrid tackles made from Scholes, “he will never learn ha-ha” it does beg the question, any danger Andy?

But lets not dwell on Paul’s tackling proficiency, but how good he actually still is. England should have built their team around him and not abandoned him to the unwanted position off left wing. But England’s loss was United’s gain, as he prematurely retired whilst still in his prime.

Hopefully we are all graced with his footballing ability for one final year…

Paul Scholes, your are legend.
