Gary Neville hits out at Manchester United over Welbeck sale Gary Neville admits he cannot understand why Manchester United sold Danny Welbeck to Arsenal. Welbeck joined Arsene Wenger’s side on deadline day in a €20 million [£16m] deal, to be replaced at Old Trafford by Colombia superstar Radamel Falcao on a lucrative one-year loan deal. Former United midfielders Paul Scholes and David Beckham have been quick to express their “sadness” at the departure of the Manchester-born 23-year-old. And Neville, who works with Welbeck in the England set-up, believes Arsenal underpaid for the striker and feels United’s decision to sell is questionable. "I can’t work it out [why Manchester United sold Welbeck],” Neville told talkSPORT. “After all the prices I’ve seen paid this summer and, obviously I've been working with him the last week, I'm thinking how is it just £16 million? "There’s been right-backs and left-backs galore who have been bought for £15m this summer. How have they got him for ...
Former player, Paul Scholes, has insisted there are no quick-fixes for Louis Van Gaal at Old Trafford.
Paul Scholes on Angel Di Maria: "£50m is alot but he has something Old Trafford has lacked of late. He'd bring excitement to home games."
Paul Scholes on Manchester United: "I am scared for United. Genuinely scared that they could go into the wilderness in the same way that Liverpool did in the 1990s. I realise that it is just 15 months since United won the league for the 20th time in the club’s history. I know that it is still the most commercially successful club in the country. It has the biggest stadium in the Premier League, and the biggest match-day revenue. But ultimately all a club’s success and standing are built on the foundations of what happens on the pitch. "Let us be clear about one thing. I am sick of having to criticise the club to which I gave my life as a footballer. But this is a United team that lost seven league games at Old Trafford last season and began on Saturday by losing at home to Swansea. United need to arrest their decline. In those years under Sir Alex Ferguson, when trophy followed trophy, this sort of mediocrity was unthinkable. But it is happening. "The sad, and worrying, aspect of it all, after watchin ...
Man United will struggle to return to summit: Scholes Manchester United will struggle to return to the Premier League’s summit this season because too many top players have left and not enough signings made, according to former midfielder Paul Scholes. The 20-time English champions slumped to seventh last season during the short reign of David Moyes, but even with seasoned title winner Louis Van Gaal in the Old Trafford hot seat, Scholes is not expecting a title challenge. “I think the title is between City and Chelsea, they’ve both made decent signings,” Scholes said in Friday’s Daily Mirror on the eve of the new Premier League season.

Neville threw the ice bucket over Scholes as part of a charity cause for the James McCarthy Foundation - not the Everton midfielder, but a young man who suffered a brain tumour in a car accident and wants to complete his 'bucket list' - and the Former United midfielder apparently requested that Darren Fletcher be next in line to be soaked.

'I wish Manchester United had signed Toni Kroos' - Paul Scholes wants to see German at Old Trafford
Toni Kroos would be perfect for Manchester United, says former Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes. Scholes a man who knows more than most about playing in midfield for United - wanted to see Kroos join and he doesn't think Herrera is up to Kroos' standard. “I love watching Toni Kroos. I think he’s brilliant. I love the way he controls the ball and controls games, he can really play a pass and has superb vision. Kroos is capable of scoring goals too, from outside the box on either foot. "I just wish Man United had signed him. Yes, it is good to see United bringing in new players, but they haven’t signed anything like the quality of Kroos." [Source: Mirror, Paddy Power]

The former Everton forward has played a huge number of matches since bursting onto the scene at a young age and his former team-mate feels that his best may be behind him Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is concerned Wayne Rooney may be past his peak after playing too many games since his meteoric rise to prominence as a teenager. The 28-year-old made his Premier League debut at the age of 16 before moving to Old Trafford as an 18-year-old, but has come increasingly under the microscope ahead of the World Cup. With a huge burden of expectation on his shoulders for both club and country, along with the sheer quantity of matches that he has played, Scholes is worried Rooney may have reached his best earlier than expected. "Wayne was in the Everton team at 16 years of age, in 2003," the Former United midfielder wrote in a blog for Paddy Power. "Since then he's played at Euro 2004, two World Cups, Premier League and Champions League every year at United. "There's a chance he's worn out. "Wayne's peak may ...
Denis Irwin has paid tribute to Ryan Giggs after his retirement. Irwin played behind the veteran midfielder on the left flank during the 1990s and early 2000s. "I suppose all good things come to an end, but what an unbelievable player he has been for Manchester United. The way he's done it as well is testament to himself. Someone called him a 'freak of nature' at one point – he's been an unbelievable player, and certainly a legend." Irwin was replaced by Giggs against Everton in March 1991 as the latter made his Reds debut, and believes the new Old Trafford no.2 is among the best he has ever played with. "I was fortunate enough to play with Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Bryan Robson – all fantastic players. Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Peter Schmeichel, Paul Scholes – unbelievable talents, but Ryan is right up there with them. "He was a fantastic player to have in front of you because you knew he would help you out with your defensive duties as well. He wasn't afraid to do the dirty side of football, to track ba ...
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says he does not know if he will continue as coach at Old Trafford and says executive vice-chairman has much to prove
Louis Van Gaal vs. United ! Louis Van Gaal has faced Manchester United four times and, on every occasion, football fans have been treated to high-octane matches filled with goals and attacking endeavour. In September 1998, the Dutchman brought Barcelona to Old Trafford for a memorable Champions League tie. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs scored early goals but Sonny Anderson and Giovanni restored parity on the hour. David Beckham’s stunning free-kick was then cancelled out by Luis Enrique’s penalty, capping a wonderful 3-3 draw. Remarkably, the sides did it all again two months later. The Catalans led first through Anderson, only for Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole to put United ahead. Two Rivaldo goals then sandwiched Yorke’s second to clinch another entertaining 3-3 draw at Camp Nou. Eleven years later, in March 2010, Van Gaal’s Bayern Munich welcomed United to the Allianz Arena. Wayne Rooney opened the scoring in the first leg after just 66 seconds, before Franck Ribery's deflected free-kick set up a dr ...

Ryan Giggs will hold talks with Louis Van Gaal on Wednesday to discuss his future at Manchester United with the Holland coach expected to be confirmed as the club’s new manager on Thursday. Giggs is due to accompany United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to meet Van Gaal, who has ordered Wednesday as a rest day for the Dutch squad at their pre-World Cup training camp in Hoenderloo. With Woodward due to face questions over the club’s disastrous season from investors on Thursday when United release their third-quarter financial results, there is a desire within Old Trafford to confirm Van Gaal’s appointment to end the uncertainty surrounding the team over the past month. But while Van Gaal has already discussed transfer targets and player departures with Woodward, Giggs’s future remains unresolved. It is understood that Van Gaal is open to the prospect of handing Giggs a senior role in his backroom team, but the Welshman has yet to make a decision over his intentions. Paul Scholes is due to atte ...
Who's In And Who's Out At Old Trafford This Summer With members of the Red Devils soon predicted to leave, there will be large gaps in the squad, leaving the future manager with a lot of pressure hanging over their head to do well in the summer transfer market. Here are players set to leave in the summer and to the fans hopes, some rumoured to join. 10. OUT: Patrice Evra Evra has been one of United's longest servants, after a staggering eight years for the Red Devils. Being the top left-back at the club, getting a starting place almost every week, the Frenchman has been an engine for Manchester United down the left flank. Yet his time is coming up at Old Trafford in an almost done deal on a free-transfer to French club, Monaco. 9. OUT: Ashley Young After buying the winger from Aston Villa, his first season was filled with goals, assists and first team appearances. Since then, the England international's career at United has gone downhill, having only 29 appearances this season in all competitions. Young . ...
Coaches Phil Neville and Chris Woods have reportedly been informed that they are surplus to requirements at Manchester United . The duo arrived last summer as part of David Moyes's coaching team, but following the Scot's sacking last month, their futures at Old Trafford had been called into question. They were both retained by interim manager Ryan Giggs - a former teammate of Neville's - but with Louis Van Gaal's appointment widely expected to be confirmed in the near future, both Neville and goalkeeping coach Woods are to leave the club, according to numerous reports. However, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes, who have also assisted Giggs in recent weeks, have been tipped to remain with the Red Devils, although they would return to their previous roles with the youth sides. Giggs, meanwhile, is expected to be named as Van Gaal's number two.

Manchester United: Do not lose 'Class of 92' spirit - Louis Saha Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has warned against damaging the spirit of the 'Class of 92'. Ryan Giggs has been put in charge at Old Trafford following the dismissal of David Moyes, assisted by Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville. Yet there is no guarantee any of them will be around next season if Dutchman Louis Van Gaal takes charge. "If you lose those kind of players and that kind of spirit and charisma, it would be a shame," said Saha. "After what happened with Sir Alex Ferguson's departure, you may lose out in the same way if they leave." Along with former England captain David Beckham and current England coach Gary Neville, the current United coaching staff form one of the most decorated youth teams in English football. So famous did they become, a film about them was released last year, with the same 'Class of 92' title by which they are collectively known. Yet Frenchman Saha, who scored 42 goals in 124 appearances f ...
Louis Van Gaal MUST keep Giggs and 'Class of 92' at United - Bryan Robson Red Devils legend Bryan Robson believes Van Gaal should be forced to keep Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt at Old Trafford. "I think it would be very disappointing for those lads not to be kept on, in whatever role, as they are part of Manchester United,the fans would be very disappointed if they don't have a future in the club."If you are talking about bringing all these people in you have to make sure that you are making the right decision and you are not allowing them too much rope.It is up to the board to step in and say 'you can have leeway with this, but there are definitely restrictions on this part of the club'.That has to come from the club rather than the new coach. Sometimes I think when you go into a new club, why not give the staff a chance?" Do you you think the class of 92 should remain at Old Trafford as part of our future?
Manchester United are preparing to name Louis Van Gaal as new manager next Wednesday. The Daily Mail says Van Gaal is set to be confirmed as Manchester United’s manager on Wednesday and will bring his extensive Dutch backroom staff with him to Old Trafford. The 62-year-old will be joined at United by former Holland striker Patrick Kluivert, goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek, fitness coach Jos van Dijk and analyst Max Reekers. However, their arrival means the club’s famous Class of 92 face uncertain futures. The roles for interim manager Ryan Giggs and coaches Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville are up in the air, and they may be forced to take on junior roles or - in the worst-case scenario - move on altogether. It is expected that Van Gaal’s appointment will be announced after United have played their final home game of the season against Hull on Tuesday night.
Anders Lindegaard has christened Ryan Giggs 'the new Pep Guardiola' after the Welshman's perfect start to life as interim manager. The 40-year-old will preside over first team matters for United's final three games of the season while the club consider a permanent replacement for David Moyes, who was shown the door after a disastrous first campaign last week. Having called upon fellow Class of '92 teammates Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt to assist him, Giggs helped to to restore an aura of positivity around Old Trafford as he led the club to a comfortable 4-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday. Although the Welshman is reluctant to consider his chances of keeping the role beyond the end of the season, Lindegaard believes the Welshman is destined to forge a career similar to that of Guardiola's at Barcelona having also drawn early comparisons with Sir Alex Ferguson. "Ryan Giggs has always kept a kind of professional distance to his teammates," Lindegaard wrote in his Betfair blog . "He opened his ...
Football - Premier League United hit four to give Giggs winning start Premier League, Old Trafford - Manchester United 4 (Rooney 40’ pen 48’ Mata 64’ 73’) Norwich City 0 Ryan Giggs enjoyed his first win as Manchester United manager with a 4-0 victory over Norwich City. Giggs watched in a suit from the sidelines, having left himself out of the match day squad. He was joined in the dugout by Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Phil Neville. United initially played much as they had for the whole season, struggling to find momentum or break the opposition down. Most of the play came down the right wing, with Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia sending in a number of poor crosses. Just before half time, Steven Whittaker brought down Danny Welbeck as he prepared to latch onto a loose ball Norwich failed to clear, and Wayne Rooney scored with a confident penalty. In the second half, Rooney took three minutes to extend the lead, curling in a fine shot from 25 yards. United regained some of their old confidence, and ...
That's a special sight, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes & Nicky Butt in the dugout at Old Trafford.
goodbye Sir David Moyes (I feel sorry for him) On the bright side, u'll get some break from the the pressure and that my boys Evra and Van Persie will get to stay a little longer( am told u had fallen out with them) However I don't think the interim managers Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt can do the job any better. I therefore appeal to Ed Woodward to do whatever it takes to bring Pep Guardiola to the Old Trafford.
Butt 'proud' to be part of Giggs's coaching team at Manchester United. The former midfielder, who spent 12 seasons at Old Trafford, admits it will be a "surreal" moment when four members of the 'Class of '92' will be in the dugout against Norwich. Following the sacking of David Moyes on Tuesday, Giggs has been placed in temporary charge of the first team while Butt and Paul Scholes are assisting the 40-year-old, with Phil Neville retained as part of the coaching staff. What a moment is going to be tomorrow. Can't wait for a match day.

news update : Giggs poised to drop Man United bombshell with club legend ready to quit Old Trafford. Ryan Giggs is considering bringing the curtain down on his glittering Old Trafford career by cutting his ties with Manchester United at the end of the season. Sir Alex Ferguson: "You can't replace players like Paul Scholes. You hope you can get something approaching it, but you’ll never replace Scholes. We're all searching for that. Everybody is searching for the special player who makes the difference to his team. He was an absolute one-off." Manchester United are believed to be in pole position to sign Borussia Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan now that Barcelona have been placed under a transfer embargo. Manchester United have won 7 & Drawn 1 of last 8 games in which Darren Fletcher appeared. Guardiola willing to sell Toni Kroos to Manchester United only if Adnan Januzaj arrives as part of swap deal.

Manchester United legends Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt have bought over Salford City FC, subject to FA and Football League approval. The quintet all have strong ties with the Evo-Stik League Division One North outfit and confirmed their intentions to purchase the club, with the deal expected to go through after the end of the current campaign. The group had initially been tipped with a potential multi-billion pound takeover of Old Trafford, although that turned out to be nothing more than conjecture. Gary Neville said: "I had my first trial for Manchester United in Salford at age 11 and I will never forget how important that was to me. "Salford City FC to me represents those early years, the commitment, hunger, enthusiasm, desire and spirit of football and I am very excited about this venture." Scholes said: "We know it will be tough but we will be committed to this from the start and have some very exciting plans going forward." Butt said: "Moor Lane's sporting heri ...
Man United deny rumours Beckham and Qatari royal family are poised to buy out club for £2bn after Glazer family 'lose interest' Manchester United have rubbished suggestions the Glazer Family have lost interest in the club and a £2billion Qatari bid fronted by David Beckham is poised to take over. According to reports, Beckham and his 'Class of '92' teammates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville Brothers are involved in a bid funded by the Qatari royal family. They have approached the Glazer family - who own 90 per cent of the Old Trafford club - on a number of occasions and the price remains the only stumbling block t had been suggested in The Sun that the Glazers have become disillusioned with running the club as they lurch from one disaster to another under David Moyes.

Interesting article in The Guardian: Football fans everywhere love a good conspiracy theory, so here are the beginnings of one over which to chew (warning: may be half-baked). The reclusive Paul Scholes, a good friend of Ryan Giggs who appears to have been marginalised as both a player and coach by David Moyes, makes a surprise appearance on Sky Sports to help analyse a Manchester derby. With the kind of ruthless no-frills precision that marked out his passing as a player, he takes a scalpel to his former team's many shortcomings under the post-Ferguson regime: lack of pace and penetration, questionable selections, underperforming big-name purchases, a manager that still doesn't know his best side. In mitigation, Scholes cites extenuating circumstances and says the club has "got to stand by" Moyes, but the tacit criticism is clear. Another grenade sent rolling into a dressing room rumoured to be approaching the brink of mutiny, perfectly weighted by one of United's respected players, not only of recent ye ...

Scholes takes a dig at Arsenal - 26 March 2014, 13:12 Once one of Arsenal's chief tormentors on the pitch, Paul Scholes dissected the Gunners with a withering verbal assault after a home draw with Swansea City on Tuesday ended any hope of a late Premier League title charge. The Former Manchester United midfielder was known for letting his boots do the talking during a glittering Old Trafford career but when asked to pick over the pieces of Arsenal's season, he held nothing back. "It was a typical week for Arsenal really," Scholes, who was working for Sky Sports as a pundit, said after the Gunners drew 2-2 with Swansea City, three days after a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelsea in Arsene Wenger's 1 000th game in charge. "They capitulated at Chelsea and it seems to be a similar theme again at the top teams. "It happened at Liverpool. They conceded six against Man City and for one reason or another players seem to go missing... "It seems like they go on the pitch with no discipline. "It's as though four, f ...
THE GINGER NINJA TURNED PUNDIT!! Manchester United’s performance may have been disastrous on the pitch during their derby humiliation at the hands of Manchester City – but at least one ex player put in a star turn on Tuesday night. Paul Scholes, who retired last summer along with Sir Alex Ferguson, was a surprise choice of Sky Sports pundit for the match at Old Trafford last night as the notoriously shy former midfielder made the rarest of appearances in front of the TV cameras. Scholes was famous for being camera shy during his playing career, rarely giving interviews and, when he did, looking extremely uncomfortable in the media glare as he kept his opinions to himself and made minimal noise. However, following in the footsteps of former team- mate Gary Neville – now regarded as the best football pundit going – Scholes made a big impression on Sky as he let loose on the failings of his former club, and old rivals Arsenal. Scholes limbered up with a precise dissection of the problems affecting Da ...
Paul Scholes advises Manchester United to stick with David Moyes Paul Scholes feels his old club Manchester United should stand by boss David Moyes and back him in the transfer market. Moyes has already shelled out £27.5million on Marouane Fellaini and £37.1million on Juan Mata since taking the reins at Old Trafford from Sir Alex Ferguson. However, Tuesday night's 3-0 defeat by rivals City marked the sixth time this season that the reigning champions have been turned over at home in the Premier League. They have also slipped 15 points behind Manuel Pellegrini's title chasers in the table but former Red Devils star Scholes, a guest pundit on Sky Sports' Football Special, is of the opinion that United must back their manager. "You have to," said Scholes. "He's only nine months into the job. You have to stand by him. "OK, he's made a couple of signings that haven't quite worked out yet, as he would have liked. "In the summer, he's going to need backing - there's no doubt about that. Was he backed as well a ...
Manchester United 0 Manchester City 3: Five things we learned at Old Trafford. David Moyes got it all wrong, David Silva is key and the balance of power has shifted in Manchester By Mark Ogden, Telegraph sports writer. 1. Confusion over Valencia's selection With Manchester City’s frailties on the left side of defence well documented this season, the decision of David Moyes, the Manchester United manager, to start without a right winger was baffling. Paul Scholes, sitting in the television studio, admitted to being “amazed” by the non-selection of Antonio Valencia, but within 10 minutes the Ecuador international was stripped and ready to go on at Old Trafford – before he was told to sit on the bench again moments later. 2. Cleverley is exposed by his manager Tom Cleverley has had a rough ride this season, with his performances on the pitch leading to a ridiculous online petition designed to have the United midfielder omitted from England’s squad for the World Cup finals in Brazil this summer.

Man Utd legend, Paul Scholes, is reportedly set for an emotional return to Old Trafford, this time as a member of the coaching facility
Paul Scholes is set for a return to Old Trafford this summer. David Gill and Alex Ferguson want him back to help David Moy…
Paul Scholes feels sorry for Manchester United boss David Moyes and says it is far too early to make snap judgements on the Old Trafford boss. "It's far too early to sack him. With all the injuries he's had, I feel quite sorry for him really. "He's never been able to put out the same back four. You see all the top teams, they have the same back four every week, especially with the centre-backs, they need to get an understanding and rhythm together. "Michael Carrick's been injured, Robin Van Persie's been injured, key players have been injured but he's not made any excuses and tried to get on with it and hopefully next year will be better." "Moyes' signings haven't quite settled in, Fellaini has had a lot of injuries as well, and probably hasn't produced quite what he's hoped. Juan Mata has been a little slow to get going as well but these players need time."
When Manchester United's 2013-14 season kicked off in August, there were no United fans who has as much confidence in David Moyes' ability to bring the glory days back to Old Trafford as the United board apparently did. And after chasing half a dozen midfielders around Europe, and not only being rejected by the clubs, but being rejected by the targeted players, publicly, the stewardhsip of Moyes had begun with a handful of embarrassments, even before a ball was kicked.   Inheriting a team that had needed to bring Paul Scholes back from retirement last term, it was natural that Moyes would want to install a Keane-like presence in the center of midfield, though those guys with the skills to match the attitude are few and far between. The almost 30GBP million that was thrown at securing Fellaini's services was, in anyone's eyes but Moyes', a collosal mistake.   Of course, that Moyes brought his own back-room staff, including Former United player, Phil Neville, and promoted Giggs and Scholes to coaching pos ...
Scholes hails Mata Juan Mata’s impressive start to his Manchester United career has not gone unnoticed by a man who made the ‘creator-in-chief’ tag his own during 20 years as a Red. That man is, of course, Paul Scholes who was as delighted as anybody to see the diminutive forward make the move from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford, even going as far as to say that, in Mata, United have signed English football's top performer in recent times. “For the last couple of years Mata has probably been the best player in the league,” Scholes told MUTV and manutd.com in an exclusive interview. “We had to pay a lot of money for him and we were very lucky that he wasn’t in Chelsea’s plans, and only we can benefit from him now. “Hopefully he can have a strong end to the season and he can help us climb the table.” Although vocal in his praise for the Reds' latest acquisition, the typically bashful Mancunian was keen to dismiss those who have compared Mata with Scholes himself. He also spoke of how, i ...
Mata could be a Man United great - Ryan Giggs Ryan Giggs reckons Juan Mata could become one of Manchester United's all-time greats. United smashed their transfer record to bring Mata to Old Trafford and the Spaniard has made a relatively decent start so far. Mata played a part in the build up to Robin Van Persie's opener on his winning debut against Cardiff and he also set up the Dutchman against Stoke - although United eventually fell to defeat against the Potters. As the most decorated player in the club's history, Giggs knows a thing or two about what it takes to be known as a United icon. And there was little hesitation in the Welshman's reply when he was asked if Mata, 25, could become a United great. "I think he could be," the midfielder told MUTV. "He's obviously got the talent. "I don't want to put too much pressure on him but I don't see why not." While Mata has a long way to go before he matches the achievements of Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and co, there is little doubt among the United ...
Last I will post on the Mata/United topic, thoughts? .Is Mata nothing more than a panic by for David Moyes, who has seen his side fall out of the title race, as well as the two domestic cups? The confusion over Mata’s arrival at Old Trafford is that he doesn’t fit into United’s current system. His best role, playing behind the main striker, is where Wayne Rooney plies his trade. Mata is not a wide player and is certainly not a central midfielder in any shape or form. He comes into the one area where United aren’t short of quality. The Red Devils are lacking a Roy Keane and Paul Scholes in the middle of the park, a leader with some never-say-die steel to them. Maybe Mata’s signature will keep the restless fans appeased for a while and at least give Moyes the potential to change formation in desperate times of need.
Today will the final game at Old Trafford for both Sir Alex Ferguson and Paul Scholes.
29/4/2008: Paul Scholes' 25 yarder against Barcelona at Old Trafford fires United to the Champions League Final.
Manchester United: Robbie Savage says 12 players should go By Robbie Savage BBC football pundit Manchester United must spend £200m if they are to rebuild their squad to the standard that once made sides visiting Old Trafford feel helpless. United lost for the third time in a row with defeat at Sunderland on Tuesday and I think as many as 12 of the 27 players who regularly feature for them are now on borrowed time. Blunt United Wayne Rooney tops the Premier League's assist-makers this season but he is the only United player in the top 40. Manchester City, meanwhile, have eight players on the same list The players are getting shot at by people like me, but they should look at themselves. Are they running hard enough? Are they tackling hard enough? Are they putting the same effort in as they did for Sir Alex Ferguson? These are the questions I'd like to ask them, because they do not seem to be. The fear factor I had to deal with at Old Trafford when the likes of Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and David Beckham wer ...
This Sunday we face Swansea City in the FA Cup in part one of a rare home double- header, where the Welsh side will also be our next opponents at Old Trafford. Cup draws have occasionally seen the same visitors head to M16 for consecutive league and cup meetings, and the Reds have a good record in such encounters. Wimbledon carved out a draw in the fourth round of the FA Cup on 25 January 1997, when Robbie Earle equalised in the 90th minute just seconds after Paul Scholes had put United ahead. Four days later, goals from Ryan Giggs and Andy Cole overturned a second-half opener from Chris Perry to hand the Reds a 2-1 win in the league. A decade later, Aston Villa pitched up at the Theatre of Dreams twice inside a week but headed back south down the M6 having lost on each occasion. On 7 January, Milan Baros cancelled out Henrik Larsson’s opener, but a last-gasp winner from supersub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw the Reds into the hat for the FA Cup fourth round. Less than a week later on, goals from Ji- sung Pa ...
Keane hits out at Fergie 10 December By Matt Barlow Roy Keane has reignited his war of words with Sir Alex Ferguson with a withering series of remarks about the Former Manchester United boss. Keane opens up on his bitter exit from Old Trafford and the breakdown of his relationship with Ferguson in an ITV documentary to be screened tonight. He talks of Fergie’s methods of ‘power and control’ and his ‘massive ego’, hails Brian Clough as ‘without a doubt’ the best manager he worked for and omits Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville when choosing the finest United team from his former team-mates. Keane brands Neville ‘the weakest link’ and, in reference to Giggs, says: ‘Having a great career doesn’t mean you’re a great player.’ Included in his team instead of Fergie’s favourites are rebels who fell out with the Former United manager, including Jaap Stam, Paul Ince, David Beckham and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. ‘You don’t win league titles by having choirboys in your dressing room ...
My Letter to Alex Ferguson Dear Sir, Paul Scholes retired from active soccer but when the going went tough you brought him back. Now that you have also retired but know clearly that Manchester United is being disintegrated, what are you doing about it? Please advise yourself. We are suffering and there seem to be no power to help in the struggle. It's not funny any more as Old Trafford has now become home for strangers and visitors. Distant relationship has always been difficult else I would have come directly to you to present my petition. I believe in Moyes and I keep on praying for him. I believe in Manchester United and cannot downplay our prowess but now things are very difficult. I kindly call you back to the pitch. With kind regards, Nana Boachie
David Beckham said he expects his mother to cry when she watches a film about his time at Manchester United. The former England captain contributed to a feature-length documentary which focuses on the Old Trafford side's youth players from 1992. The film examines the difficult period in Beckham's life after he was sent off at the 1998 World Cup. Speaking at the premiere of The Class of 92 at London's Leicester Square, he said: "There will be a few tears in there from my mum I'm sure." Beckham attended the event with his wife, Victoria, and their three sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. The documentary covers the period from 1992 to 1999 when Beckham and his team-mates Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Phil and Gary Neville rose up through the squad to achieve top level success. He explained how much he valued the support of his fellow players when he faced tough periods in his career. "I think that is part of history," the 38-year-old said. "It's the same for all of us six. There were good times, there ...
July 11th 2000: Inter president confirms £31m offer for Paul Scholes “Yes it is true. The story is correct. We are very much interested in signing Paul Scholes. Unfortunately for us, it appears Manchester United are not prepared to release Scholes at the moment. It is going to be very hard for us to get him.” July 12th 2000: Agent Pino Pagliara tells Moratti to give up on Scholes “I told Moratti Scholes is a “mission impossible” man. It’s more than money with him. He was born just a few blocks away from Old Trafford. It’ s about wearing United’ s colours. United say it will only happen if the board, player and manager all agree.” August 18th 2000: Scholes wants to stay Scholes “All the young lads love the club and want to stay here. When you come from the area it means so much more. We know what Manchester United means to so many people and we all want to be there as long as we can – and do the things Denis has done. I have been here for nine years, since I left school at 16. I am 2 ...
*** I can replace Paul Scholes ***United's new boy and Belgian international Moroune Fellaini has revealed that he believes he can fill the void left by legend PAUL SCHOLES and admited that he struggled to believe it was true when he transferred to Old Trafford
Reports by Jeremy Wilson of the Telegraph state that the Former Manchester United manager believes Gerrard not to be a "top top player" and is inferior to the likes of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. Ferguson's claims that when playing for Liverpool against a United side featuring both Keane and Scholes, Gerrard was largely ineffective. BUT. January 2002, the venue is Old Trafford and there is five minutes left of a tense encounter between United and Liverpool. Guess who steps up and delivers a quite magnificent pass that opens up the United defence before being put in the back of the net by Danny Murphy? Yes, you guessed it, Steven Gerrard. Were Keane and Scholes in the starting lineup that day? You bet they were. THEN. One year on at the Millennium Stadium and it's Liverpool versus United in the final of the League Cup. Gerrard opens the scoring with a truly wonderful long-range effort and Liverpool win 2-0. No prizes for guessing which two players were in the United starting lineup. AND. Despite being of t ...
Five Things To Look For David Moyes’ team go on the hunt for all three points against Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday. It’s a fixture that's gone only one way in recent years... Dominant Reds United have a fine record against Stoke and are unbeaten at home against the Potters since 1976. The Reds have won nine and drawn one of the 10 Premier League meetings between the two sides and the last 10 in all competitions at Old Trafford. This weekend’s visitors have only managed to score three times here since they last left with a point, way back in December 1980. Sparky’s Back Former Reds striker Mark Hughes will be back in familiar surroundings but Sparky has struggled as a manager against his old club. He has won just twice in 15 attempts when managing sides against United, and his only victory as a visitor at Old Trafford came back when he was in charge of Blackburn in 2005. Hughes’ last trip ended with his QPR side beaten 2-0 thanks to goals from Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes. Van th ...
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers enjoyed a dig at Sir Alex Ferguson by saying that Manchester United are 10 players short of making a challenge for the Premier League title. The Former United boss tore into the Manchester club's bitter rivals in his new autobiography, claiming Rodgers is 'eight players short of becoming genuine title contenders'. But as Rodgers hit back at Ferguson's criticism, he showed his sense of humour with a shot of his own at the Old Trafford club. Rodgers said: 'That's probably two short of what they need. We need eight, they need 10.' Ferguson's stinging attack on the Anfield club included his surprise that Rodgers was appointed as Dalglish’s replacement, given that he was ‘only’ 39 years old. He also said that Steven Gerrard is not a 'top, top player', claming that the Liverpool midfielder 'seldom had a kick' when coming against a midfield of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes.
In his explosive new book, Sir Alex Ferguson writes of Wayne Rooney's desire to leave, how David Beckham became too big for his boots, why Steven Gerrard isn't as good as Paul Scholes and how relief swept through the Old Trafford ranks when Roy Keane departed for Celtic in 2005.

'THE CHOSEN ONE': Wayne Rooney IS NOT FOR SALE! David Moyes has moved to end speculation linking Wayne Rooney away from Old Trafford by insisting the England striker is 'not for sale.' And Moyes has said in answer to whether Utd are swooping Ronaldo: "I don't talk about players at other clubs but we sign the best players." Moyes said he may sign a player before pre-season. He revealed Paul Scholes may join his bench.
Farewells came thick and fast in a manic May. It may not have pleased the overworked, chronicling the careers of the departing greats, but it certainly suited Paul Scholes. The undemonstrative maestro had always wanted to slip away quietly. By announcing his own exit after Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement became public knowledge, bowing out at Old Trafford on the same sun-kissed afternoon, he contrived to be obscured when many others, his manager included, wanted him to be celebrated. As the dictator and the distributor exited the stage, Manchester United were quick to fill one vacancy, Ferguson anointing David Moyes as his successor. Even before the younger Scot officially took charge, it was apparent he was intent on addressing the other. The Catalan branch of the Scholes fan club has two high-profile members in Xavi and Andres Iniesta ("In the last 15 or 20 years," the former said in 2011, "the best central midfielder I have seen – the most complete – is Paul Scholes.") Perhaps, therefore, it was fit ...
Manchester United join race for Serie A star Cavani. Manchester United are reported to have registered an interest in the ?50M rated striker Edison Cavani. Giants Real Madrid and Chelsea are at the forefront of the struggle to attract the 26 year old, with Madrid believed to be his preferred destination. However, United have made a late entry in the race to secure his signature, after they have looked to have missed out on Borrusia Dortmund's Polish wonder Robert Lewandoski. Many fans have questioned the need to sign yet another striker, with the club already having the services of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney (although he could be on his way out), Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck at their disposal. United heavily relied on the ageing Carrick in midfield last season and with Paul Scholes finally calling it a day, United have a void to fill in the centre of the pitch. Barcelona duo Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara have been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, although Fabregas has poured cold ...
Manchester United are reportedly close to agreeing to personal wage terms with Barcelona and Spain U21 midfielder. Thiago Alcantara. According to Sky SportsLa Liga expert, Graham Hunter, Manchester United and Thiago are “close enough for wages to be agreed upon.” Alcantara has an €18 million buy-out clause, that could have been €90 million had he played just one more match for Barcelona this season. In Spain’s U21 Euro final win against Italy, Thiago scored a hat-trick, prompting many to question him over his future, which had been continously linked to a move to Old Trafford to replace a retiring Paul Scholes. Thiago has also admitted that he would need to see more playing time in order to make Spain’s senior squad for the 2014 World Cup, while his Barcelona teammates have encouraged him to stay at the Camp Nou and continue to grow under Xavi Hernandez, advice that seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

DAVID De Gea appears to have written hat-trick star Thiago Alcantara a cheeky ‘welcome to Manchester’ message. The Manchester United goalkeeper looks to have scribbled ‘See you in Manchester!’ on his Euro Under-21 final match-ball. Spanish midfielder Thiago is wanted by new United boss David Moyes as a long-term replacement for Paul Scholes. Barcelona’s whizkid capped some dazzling form in the Euro Under-21 Championships with a first-half treble in Tuesday’s 4-2 final victory over Italy and kept the ball as a souvenir. It was signed by every member of the victorious Spain squad. And it appears De Gea took the opportunity to give his team-mate a nudge towards a move to Old Trafford. Thiago was photographed holding the ball with the message ‘Nos Vemos en Manchester’ — which means ‘see you in Manchester’. De Gea has spoken openly of his desire for Thiago, 22, to join him in the Premier League — and Moyes could get him for just £15million. The Spaniard’s Nou Camp contract includes a ...

Maybe a hint for Manchester United. 3. Strootman agent says: Kevin is a player like Paul Scholes. 4. Manchester United set for a big sign it maybe Bale or Ronaldo. 5. Sir Alex Ferguson said earlier everything is in a place for a BIG signing this summer. 6. Nampalys Mendy on MUFC interest: They're the club of my dreams.

Certain rumors claim that today morning Rooney has arrived at the Emirates in a black Mercedes to set up a meeting with Arsene Wenger. 11. Manchest ...
Some of Sir Alex Ferguson's Most Memorable Moments; 1] The Treble 1998/99 The success generated from just 1 season won't be repeated in English football for a long time. The season started innocuously with a heavy loss to Arsenal at Wembley in the Charity Shield along with 2 draws to Leicester and West Ham but by January, United really get going. The highlights in the opening half of the season would be a thrashing of Wimbledon at Old Trafford coupled with a vital win over Liverpool at home thanks to a stunning Paul Scholes strike. The Champions League group contained the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona was always going to be difficult and a night to remember would be a 3-3 draw at the Nou Camp when the combination of Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke announced themselves on the European stage. They would qualify after a 1-1 draw to Bayern Munich. The route to the FA Cup wouldn't be easy either. A nervous win at home to Middlesbrough followed by a dramatic comeback at Old Trafford against Liverpool was a de ...
Claudio Marchisio "would be very proud" if Manchester United tried to buy him from Juventus Juventus schemer Claudio Marchisio has opened the door to a potential move to Manchester United by admitted he'd be proud to be wanted by the Old Trafford giants. David Moyes, who takes over from the retiring Alex Ferguson as manager next month, is seeking midfield reinforcements this summer following the retirement of Paul Scholes and with severe doubts over the future of illness-hit Darren Fletcher. Italy international Marchisio, currently on Confederations Cup duty in Brazil, is prepared to leave the Serie A champions - his hometown club - after being told he might be allowed to go for around £24million. Marchisio, 27, said: "I've heard that I might not be so valuable to Juve any more. "I've not been told anything by the club or received any offers and I need to speak to Juve to see if I am still an important player for them. "If that's not the case, it will be normal to look at other teams. It is not only down ...
Manchester United plotting mega-money move for Spaniard New Manchester United manager David Moyes is keen to launch a £40m move for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, according to reports from The Metro. The Spanish star has been attracting the interest of Premier League rivals Arsenal of late, with Arsene Wenger believed to be confident that he can lure his former star back to the Emirates Stadium. But Moyes is hopeful that a big-money move for Fabregas – who is said to be unsettled at the Nou Camp – could get his United career off to a convincing start. As a result the Scot is willing to blow a large chunk of his transfer budget on the 26-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the finest playmakers on the planet. Moyes is understood to have made a new central midfielder one of his top targets, with Old Trafford icon Paul Scholes having retired at the end of last term. Despite coming from abroad, Fabregas has an extensive knowledge of the Premier League, having signed for Arsenal as a youth pla ...
Man United TO COMPLETE Kevin Strootman DEAL Dutch international midfielder Kevin Strootman looks set to become David Moyes' first signing since becoming Manchester United manager. The PSV Eindhoven midfielder will complete a 9 million Euro move to Old Trafford. Strootman is being brought to the club as a possible replacement for Paul Scholes who retired last season, whilst Darren Fletcher continues to suffer with a serious stomach condition and is unlikely to be a regular first team player until mid-season. The 23-year-old former Sparta Rotterdam and Utrecht player has featured regularly for the Dutch side last season, scoring 6 goals in 25 games. Strootman is able to play as a central midfield playmaker or as a defensive midfielder.
Which potential United target can fill the boots Paul Scholes left behind? This is still the big unanswered question for many fans - take a look at the potential candidates to add to Moyes' midfield Who gets your vote to fill the gap in Midfield for United that Paul Scholes has now left behind? Players such as Everton's Belgian master Marouane Fellaini and Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder have long been linked with a switch to Old Trafford. Recently Barcelona ace Cesc Fabregas and Feyenorrd's Kevin Strootman have joined the mix for a potential place in the United midfield. And of course there is Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite United players player of the season Carrick, the youth of Tom Cleverley, pace of Shinji Kagawa and plenty of choice on the wing, it is thought the midfield is still short of a creative midfielder. Marouane Fellaini Age: 25 Born: Etterbeek, Belgium Current club: Everton Previous club: Standard Liege Scores goals for Everton, is good in the air and tall. Would add another dimension t ...
Kevin Strootman To Become First Signing of David Moyes for Manchester United !! David Moyes will make £10m Dutch international Kevin Strootman his first signing as Manchester United boss, according to sources in Holland. Moyes chased PSV midfielder Strootman, 23, while he was at Everton. He requested detailed scouting reports on the Holland star and was keen to sign him on at Goodison Park. And now, months later, he's finally got his man - at Old Trafford. The new United boss wants Strootman to come in and replace Paul Scholes, who hung up his boots at the end of the season. Strootman helped PSV finish as runners-up in the Dutch Eredivisie, playing 35 times and netting six goals along the way. The 6ft 1ins man is built for the Premier League and has already notched up 18 caps for his national side.
me and Fidel have just got home after a lovely day at Old Trafford - real family fun with live music from Amelia Lily, Tinchy Stryder and JLS followed by United Legends v Real Madrid Legends. I must say some of the players still have some great touches, especially Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo (who has also kept his good looks), Paul Scholes, Andrew Cole and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. Sir Alex was in the crowd and enjoyed joining in the Mexican Waves and Steve Mcmanaman got the reception he deserved from the Old Trafford crowd!
Legends ready for battle Manchester United's Legends are preparing to face their Real Madrid counterparts on Sunday at Old Trafford. The Red Heart United event features a concert headlined by JLS and a number of other family-based activities with the ticket-office windows open for sales and collections all day. 55,600 tickets have already been sold. United trail 3-2 from the first game at the Bernabeu last year with goalscorers Lee Sharpe and Teddy Sheringham again both on show. Coach Bryan Robson has been deprived of the services of Dion Dublin after he picked up a collarbone injury and Jesper Blomqvist has also been forced to withdraw. Paul Scholes is likely to be a central figure and he will come up against Zinedine Zidane, Steve Mcmanaman and Luis Figo in midfield. However, the visitors will be without Guti. Ruud Van Nistelrooy is scheduled to appear for both teams after representing the two clubs with great distinction. United: Van der Sar, van der Gouw; Berg, Blackmore, Irwin, Johnsen, Martin, Stam; ...
Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba says that he stood up to Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to vent his anger at not being involved in the team. The 20-year-old only made seven appearances in all competitions in his three-year spell at Old Trafford and he went on to join Juventus last summer. Pogba has gone on to establish himself as a regular for the Serie A champions and the Frenchman insists that he did the right thing by confronting Ferguson. "I never disrespected Sir Alex Ferguson, if anything it is the opposite, because I said things to his face," he told France Football. "When I knew of Paul Scholes' return I understood that I would find it difficult to play and that I had to leave United. "Ferguson told me that in Italy there is a lot of racism and that the fans were not like the Premier League's. I told him that there was no problem for me so I ended up on the team's fringes. "My team-mates gave me the nickname of Nelson Mandela because I was opposed to Ferguson. But I would say no to ...
Manchester United season review Final League Standing: 1st Total points gained: 89 Goal difference: +43 The 2012/13 campaign will undoubtedly go down as a landmark season United’s history as they claimed an unprecedented 20th league title. It marked the end of an era as Sir Alex announced his retirement. Ferguson began the season with controversy signing former Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie a man who would greatly help their Premier League push. Van Persie came off the bench to make his United debut at Goodison Park, but the £24million man could not stop the Reds slumping to an opening-day defeat against Everton. The Dutchman opened his account for the club the following Saturday as Ferguson’s outfit beat Martin Jol’s Fulham. A Van Persie inspired United went from strength to strength in September, recording five straight victories before Tottenham Hotspur’s first win in 23 years at Old Trafford condemned Ferguson’s side to a second defeat of the season. Paul Scholes marked his 700th appeara ...

FA CUP CHELSEA/UNITED MAY FACE CITY IN SEMIFINALS: United were pegged back to 2-2 by holders Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday, having led 2-0 at the break, while City demolished Barnsley 5-0 on Saturday thanks to a Carlos Tevez hat-trick. The other semi will see Wigan, who hammered Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday and will feature in the last four of the competition for the first time in their 81-year history, face either Millwall or Blackburn, who shared a goalless draw at The Den on Sunday. City beat United 1-0 thanks to a Yaya Toure finish in the 2011 semis, with Paul Scholes sent off for a dangerous challenge. City went on to beat Stoke 1-0 and lift their first trophy for 35 years. They followed it up with the Premier League the following year, but United seem certain to regain their league title this term as City trail them by 12 points with 10 games remaining. Wigan chairman Dave Whelan might well be hoping Blackburn provide the opposition at Wembley which would be an emotional occasion for ...
Manchester United - Chelsea Preview: Both sides looking to bounce back from European defeats- The Red Devils will be out for blood after their controversial Champions League exit, while the Blues go to Old Trafford having not scored an FA Cup goal at the ground since 1963 Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to make a number of changes to the side that lost to Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Wayne Rooney – surprisingly dropped against Los Blancos – expected to come back into the starting XI. Don't Miss Chris Smalling has started all of Manchester United’s FA Cup matches this campaign, and could partner Jonny Evans in the centre of defence. Antonio Valencia, Anderson and, hat-trick hero against Norwich, Shinji Kagawa should also all return to the side. Phil Jones (ankle) remains sidelined, while Paul Scholes (knee) is a doubt for the match. Midfield enforcer Darren Fletcher (illness) is out for the remainder of the season.

Matches like this makes someone to punder about quiting the world of football entirely. Referee Cunenyt Curkir has disppointed everyone especially with his good reputations and experience in officiating europian games. The whole world could admit that the challenge by Nani looks very innocuous and not meant at harming Arbeloa. Match commentators even admited that ''Not any player would ever dream the referee was going to sent Nani off'' and i quite agree with them. Over the years, Manchester United have not been treated fairly by UEFA and their subbordinates. I could remember back in 2004 against FC Porto, Paul Scholes goal was ruled out dubiously in what they claim was an offside. And eventually, Mourinho, haven ran 100 metres at Old Trafford went ahead to win the cup. Additionally, the duo of John Barnes, Robert Marawa admited enthusisatically that it was a very contentious decision by the ref. A yellow card might be ok. They said, ''Not everyone in this world, in this country, in this planet expected t ...

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says he is expecting a tough test in Monday's FA Cup clash with Reading. Ferguson is expected to ring the changes for the fifth round tie at Old Trafford against a Reading side that has lost just one of their last seven games. Captain Nemanja Vidic, who was a surprise omission from Ferguson's starting line-up against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, should return at the back as United look to secure a quarter-final place. Veteran midfielder Paul Scholes is out for two weeks with a knee injury but Tom Cleverley and Anderson could both face Brian McDermott's men. Other changes may include the return of Javier Hernandez up front with Nani and Ashley Young on the wings. "Reading are a team who are showing plenty of fighting qualities, as you would expect given they are down near the bottom," said Ferguson. "We'll take nothing for granted. In the FA Cup you always expect the unexpected. You just hope you're not a casualty or a shock. "I will make some change ...

United stars backed RVP move Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson consulted his senior players before moving for Robin Van Persie. Van Persie made the move from Arsenal to Old Trafford last summer in a £24million deal and he has made an instant impact at United. Meulensteen admits the coaching staff spoke to Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes to find out if Van Persie's arrival would lead to any problems in the dressing room and that they gave their backing for the signing of the Dutchman. "The players at United never saw Robin as an intruder," said Meulensteen. "The boss and I tested that before we made a move for him. We dropped Robin's name with Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs. "We said to them, 'What would you think if Robin Van Persie comes here?' They both said the same thing. They both thought it would be outrageous if Robin came to United - and later so did all the other players. "The reason we discussed it with Ryan and Paul is because they stand for the culture of Manche ...

Manchester United v Liverpool will always be one of best rivalries, says Paul Scholes ahead of Old Trafford meeting
Paul Scholes believes there is a history to United’s rivalry with Liverpool ensuring that the match hasn’t lost its lustre, despite the fact that the Anfield club are far from being considered title contenders this season. Liverpool come to Old Trafford on Sunday and, even with an ever-evolving hierarchy in the Barclays Premier League, this remains a highlight of the fixture calendar. The challenge from Manchester City across town is undeniable as the two clubs fight for English football’s top honours.
