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.

SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Paul Scholes has urged Louis Van Gaal to buy two defenders – for Manchester United to launch a challenge for the title. Their best years may have been behind them, but when United let Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra depart this summer, they lost three players who had won 16 Premier League titles between them. According to Scholes , who thinks Van Gaal should recruit two new centre-backs, Losing that experience is a big blow for the club. Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen is poised for critical talks with Arsene Wenger as doubt lingers over his future.

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 ...

Ryan Giggs will meet with Louis Van Gaal in the Netherlands on Wednesday as Manchester United move towards finalising their new management team. Dutch national coach Van Gaal, 62, is set to be appointed as United boss and will speak to Giggs about a potential coaching position at Old Trafford. Welshman Giggs, 40, ended the campaign as United's interim manager following the dismissal of David Moyes in April. A number of the staff who worked under both Moyes and Giggs during his four-match spell in charge, including Phil Neville, Chris Woods, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, are likely to leave the club. United, who are due to release their third-quarter financial results on Thursday, finished seventh in the Premier League and will not be playing in European competition next season.

Two goals apiece from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata sent the Canaries back home with nothing and worrying about their Premier League safety. It was Ryan Giggs’ big day as he took charge of the first-team for the first time, backed up by Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville in the dugout. The Class of ’92 have almost all returned but it was Mata and Rooney who stole the show today. The past week has been quite a roller coaster for Man Utd, after losing to Everton and seeing David Moyes out of the door after just 10 months in charge, Giggs took temporary the reins. His old teammates then returned to give him a hand. Norwich were his first opponents in what will be a short period of management, as he takes control of the final four games of United’s season before a replacement is found. Louis Van Gaal is set to be named as the new manager but Giggs will relish the opportunity over the next few weeks. His time in charge started well with a Rooney penalty giving United the lead near the end of the firs ...
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 ...
Interim Manchester United manager Ryan Giggs called on old team-mate Paul Scholes for assistance as he took his first training session at the club on Wednesday. Giggs was appointed in a caretaker role on Tuesday after David Moyes was sacked less than 12 months into his six-year deal and with, Saturday's home clash against Norwich City fast approaching, the veteran summoned his long-time team-mate to help. Former United team-mates Nicky Butt and Phil Neville – who are on the club's coaching staff – were also present at the club's Carrington training complex. Butt coaches the club's Under-19s team and Scholes has assisted in their European campaign. Neville remains part of the club's first-team staff despite the departure of Moyes, with whom he also worked at Everton. Along with Gary Neville, the four members of the 'Class of '92' agreed a deal in March to buy non-league club Salford City FC together. United are languishing in seventh in the Premier League table, 23 points behind table- toppers Liverpoo ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger defended his side following comments by Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes that the Gunners are a "million miles away" from competing for the Premier League title. Last week Wenger's 1 000th game in charge of Arsenal saw the Gunners thrashed 6-0 away to Premier League leaders Chelsea in a lopsided London derby. And in midweek, when on the verge of a win at home to struggling Swansea, a late own-goal led instead to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium. Scholes, now working as a television pundit, was severely critical of Arsenal's performance against Swansea, saying they had "midfield players with no discipline" and adding "there are no leaders" at the north London club. But despite those recent setbacks Arsenal are still just six points behind Chelsea with seven league games of the season remaining heading into Saturday's match at home to title contenders Manchester City, three points off top spot with two games in hand. And that is despite the side having been hi ...
Manchester United's 'Class of '92' have agreed a deal to buy Salford City FC subject to FA and league approval. The group, which comprises Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, had been in negotiations with the non-league outfit for the past month before reaching an agreement on Thursday evening, with the purchase set to be complete in the summer. Recent reports had linked the ex-United players with an astonishing move to buy the Premier League champions, though they have instead settled for a side playing in the eighth tier of English football. Former midfielder Scholes, meanwhile, has reportedly been lined up to take over the managerial reins at the club, having turned his back on a coaching role at Old Trafford under David Moyes. A statement read: "Salford is close to all their hearts. Manchester United nurtured and developed them but Salford is where it all began so, when the opportunity arose to acquire Salford City FC, it was one they all wished to pursue. "They want t ...
Former England midfielder Paul Scholes has launched a scathing attacking on Arsenal, suggesting their midfielder Jack Wilshere has not progressed as a player under the guidance of Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. Many observers have suggested that Arsenal's 22-year-old playmaker was the most gifted midfielder England have produced since Scholes was in his pomp for Manchester United and on the international stage, but the 11-time Premier League title winner begs to differ. "When Jack Wilshere came on the scene, what a top young player he looked,"suggested Scholes."Injuries haven't helped him, but his development from 17 years of age, he doesn't look any better player now than he did when he was 17. "He needs people like [Patrick] Vieira, characters like that, to take him on to the next level. Characters and leaders are important. You play Arsenal now, get stuck in about them and you've won the game." The outspoken Scholes was equally forthright in condemning Arsenal manager Wenger and his team, in a week whe ...
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 ...
Former Man United player, Paul Scholes thinks Arsenal lack leadership, discipline and characters and that they are a million miles away from winning the Premier League. Your take?
I was pleased to see Paul Scholes and Gary Neville both agree that Moyes' selection of Fellani over Giggs and cleverly over Valencia was shocking, and further pleased to see them agree that Jones + Fellani = 2 goals for City. I'm less pleased to hear Scholes stand in favour of the manager. It's taken the manager less than a whole season to record Utd's worst premier league campaign ever. Shockingly poor were Utd yesterday, again at home.
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 ...

UNKNOWN FACTS 1 SAF Covered Over the Cracks of a Weakened Side Despite winning the 2012/13 Premier League title, SAF has covered over the weakness of the team for the past 2-3 years. Instead of pressurizing the Glazer folks to bring in better talent from the market, SAF has used all of his skills and man-management to get the most out of his squad without spending large in the transfer market. SAF brought players back from retirement or were on their last legs to fill holes in his side. Paul Scholes and Henrik Larsson are just two examples. The reality is that SAF handed Moyes a side that was in much need of rebuilding 2 SAF Hired a Mirror Image of Himself SAF’s decision to personally recommend David Moyes as the new manager to replace him was a mistake. Instead of hiring someone who had a better or different skill set, SAF selected a fellow Scot with a fiery temper. Both men were brought up in the same area of Scotland (Glasgow), and had a mutual respect and understanding of each other. By recommending ...
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 ...
Manchester United should and need to spend big in the January transfer window. With United currently sitting a miserable 8th in the Premier League, and having had a very disappointing summer transfer window, the pressure is on David Moyes to go out and spend. United clearly lack creativity in midfield, and have struggled to find a replacement for arguably the best midfielder of all time - Paul Scholes. And that's no exaggeration when I say he's one of the gratest mifielders of all time. 1. Koke Age: 21 Position: Attacking Midfield/Winger Club: Atletico Madrid Its clear to see that United are in a bit of a midfield crisis. Creativity and flare is what united miss and I feel Koke would tick all the boxes. At such a young age Koke still has a lot to to add to the quality he already possesses, and David Moyes also went to watch him in action against Porto. Word is that a fee has just been agreed and this would be excellent news for United. 2. Ilkay Gundogan Age: 23 Position: Central Midfield Club: Borussia Do ...

Ryan Giggs in numbers 17 - Giggs was offered his first professional contract with Manchester United on his 17th birthday on 29 November, 1990. 626 - Giggs has made 626 appearances in the Premier League and started in 518 of those matches. He made his debut against Everton on 2 March 1991, climbing off the bench to replace full-back Denis Irwin in a 2-0 defeat. 37 - When Giggs smashed the ball into the top corner of the Benfica goal on 14 September 2011, he became the oldest scorer in the Champions League at 37 years, 289 days. 109 - Since scoring his first Premier League goal against Tottenham in a 1-1 draw on 19 September 1992, Giggs has gone on to hit the back of the net a further 108 times in the league.

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 ...
Article on SkySports. makes me quite giddy at the thought of this midfield purring away and stopping everything in it's tracks! COYS SD "Rate the central core of any Premier League team and it's not long before you're remembering the benchmark standard set by Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit in the late 1990s. In the first of Petit's three seasons at Arsenal, the creative-destructive duo claimed a double before heading back to their homeland to put the World Cup to rights as well. Even though the Gunners failed to retain their crown in 1998-99, the pair were arguably even better in that campaign and both were picked for the PFA Team of the Year. Manchester United's Roy Keane and Paul Scholes are the main rivals to the Frenchmen when considering the greatest midfield partnership of the last 20-odd years, but it's arguably the Petit-Vieira axis that's referenced the most. However, consistent two-man combos are much rarer these days. Squad rotation is the norm, and with three attackers favoured in the forwa ...
There is bad news for Chelsea as Premier League rivals Manchester United are set to beat the Blues to the signing of Sevilla midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, reports the Metro. The 20-year-old has been earning a reputation in Spain as one of the finest young players in Europe and a host of top sides have been keeping a close eye on the Frenchman. Kondogbia only arrived at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium in the summer of 2012 following a £3.5m move from Ligue 1 side Lens. Yet in just 12 months the France under-20 international has been making a big name for himself and is likely to cost United a lot more than that in the current market. During his first season in Spain Kondogbia played an impressive 37 times for the first team which included 23 starts in La Liga. Mostly deployed as a defensive midfielder the former Lens man can also operate further up the pitch and would strengthen the Red Devils in an area they are probably most weak. The retirement of Paul Scholes and the long-term absence of Darren ...
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 ...
Andrey Arshavin, William Gallas and Yossi Benayoun are among the biggest names to leave their clubs after the Premier League confirmed the players to depart each team at the end of their contracts this summer. TRANSFER TALK 5/2 Wayne Rooney is 5/2 with Bet365 to join Arsenal this summer The Russian attacking midfielder, who joined the Gunners for £15 million in 2009, joins Denilson and Sebastien Squillaci in leaving the Emirates Stadium after failing to make the matchday squad for a league game since January. Gallas exits White Hart Lane, his third London club, alongside winger David Bentley (also a one-time £15m signing) after falling behind the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Michael Dawson in the centre-back pecking order. Benayoun heads a list of decorated but second-choice names on their way out of Chelsea, with Paulo Ferreira, Hilario, Ross Turnbull and Florent Malouda all released. Manchester United have not let go any first-team players, with the exception of the retiring Paul Scholes, though Liver ...

Such a goal threat, too.” Ryan Giggs “One of the best players to grace the Premier League – and he keeps getting better.” Eric Cantona “Legend. Everyone looked up to him, and he won us those early Premier League titles.” Andy Cole “A proper out and ...
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 ...
Neville, who has earned 59 England caps during his career, made his Premier League debut in 1995 for United in a 3-0 win over Manchester City and went on to feature in 19 seasons in the top flight. The Former United full-back and midfielder won six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one Champions League crown at Old Trafford before joining Everton in 2005 for a fee of £3.5m. Neville went on to captain the Blues under David Moyes. He ended his eight-year spell on Merseyside at the end of this season and said he was not planning to retire. But Neville admitted he knew his time was up before the end of the campaign but did not want to announce his retirement with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson and ex-United midfielders David Beckham and Paul Scholes revealing their intentions to quit football in May. "Three weeks ago, everyone in the world seemed to be retiring. I thought 'I'm not jumping on this bandwagon'," he said. "I just wanted it to be a smooth, quiet turnover. I didn't want that. "When I made ...
Man United released and retained list: Retired Paul Scholes one of nine 'let go' at Old Trafford Manchester United released nine players at the end of last season, according to a document published by the Premier League today. Paul Scholes features on the list after retiring for a second time and is the only household name among the nine. Fifty players are named on the retained list, but the squad is likely to change extensively as new manager David Moyes makes his mark at Old Trafford. Doubts remain over the future of Wayne Rooney, who has been linked to Arsenal. But Guillermo Varela has already been brought in ahead of what is set to be a busy summer of transfers in Manchester.

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.

Stats Zone Premier League Central Midfielder of the Year: Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton) First, some housekeeping. By "central midfielder" we don't mean a trequartista floating between the lines (and watching aloof from afar while his team-mates defend). We mean one of the 2 in the 4-2-3-1, what might be demeaningly referred to as a "defensive midfielder" if the position wasn't frequently occupied by players with the panache of Steven Gerrard, Mikel Arteta and Paul Scholes. That said, the winner of the inaugural Stats Zone Central Midfielder of the Year Award isn't exactly a household name, except in places where stats lovers live. Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin spent most of the season topping the Premier League's rankings for both interceptions (he ended up with 139) and tackles (146). These figures underline the fact he's the perfect midfielder for Southampton's hard-pressing game, but the Obernai sensation also impressed in possession. He chipped in with five goals, not a bad rate for a ...
Incoming manager David Moyes hopes to persuade the Spaniard to reunite with his old Arsenal teammate Robin Van Persie at Manchester United in a sensational summer transfer thought to be worth around £30million. It is thought that Fabregas is unsettled at Barcelona just less than two years after rejoining his boyhood club from Arsenal. The 26-year-old has had to settle for limited playing time at the Camp Nou this season after Barcelona’s star midfield duo Andres Iniesta and Xavi being the preferred choices. This has left the player frustrated and tempted by a possible return to the Premier League. However, is the Spaniard the ideal candidate to revitalise Manchester United’s ageing midfield? This was most evident this season at Barcelona where he’s played as a second striker combining with Lionel Messi playing short passes, making off-the-ball movements and becoming another goal scoring option. In the wake of Paul Scholes' retirement, manager Moyes is looking for stability in the centre of the park ...
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 ...
Legends step aside on a fantastic final day All in all it was a great final day to the Premier League season with plenty of fantastic matches - it was just a shame there wasn't more riding on the results, apart from the games at White Hart Lane and St James' Park. Sunday also saw some real stars play for the final time: Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher and Paul Scholes. The trio all got a run out before retiring from the game and, in my book, they're all legends. Ian Wright said on the show yesterday Owen may regret not playing more towards the end of his career, but apart from that you have to say they've all been fantastic for English football. Well done to them. I'd also like to say well done to Big Sam Allardyce. He told his board West Ham would finish in the top 10 and has delivered on that promise, with help from Kevin Nolan who scored a hat-trick against Reading on Sunday. They were tipped by many people to be relegated at the start of the year but now they can look forward to another season in the Pr ...

Manchester United and Arsenal set for battle over £15m Premier League playmaker,Yohan Cabaye Cabye has impressed since making the move to St James' Park in 2011 from Lille for £4.8 million, and has been linked with a move to one of the Premier League's top four for some time. Manchester United, whose perennial search for a creative midfielder has seen them linked with a host of players, were reportedly interested in landing the Frenchman at the start of the season, while Cabaye himself claimed Tottenham tried to make a move for him last summer. Toon boss Alan Pardew has previously admitted he would be powerless to stop a bigger club poaching Newcastle's best players in the past - and said that if Manchester United want Cabaye to be the "next Paul Scholes" it would cost them "a shedload of money". However according to the Express, Arsenal are firmly in the hunt for his signature as they look to overhaul their squad in the summer with a £70 million transfer budget. Reports emerged in the aftermath of Ars ...

"I missed my penalty and it felt like the worst day of my life. Now it's the happiest day of my life." Cristiano Ronaldo Forty years after their first European Cup triumph, half a century on from the Munich air crash and on the night of Ryan Giggs's club-record 759th appearance, Manchester United FC's evening, as they contested the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League final, was so nearly spoiled.After an epic domestic campaign which saw United sneak out on top of perennial Premier League rivals Chelsea FC, this first all-English showpiece delivered its own brand of engaging encounter at a rain-soaked Luzhniki Stadium.United were first to show their hand 26 minutes in, Cristiano Ronaldo dropping off Michael Essien and leaping majestically to head Wes Brown's cross low into the corner for his 42nd club goal of the season.Buoyed by the effervescent Owen Hargreaves and calmed by the composed Paul Scholes, United's goal was first threatened when Rio Ferdinand inadvertently headed that way.

SUNDAYS GOSSIP Former England captain David Beckham, 37, will try to convince at least four big-name England stars, including Steven Gerrard, to join the MLS - once he has sorted out his own future. Ashley Cole and Peter Crouch are also believed to be on the wishlist. Premier League teams including Tottenham, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool are all believed to be interested in signing striker Christian Benteke from struggling Aston Villa. The 22-year-old striker has scored 11 goals already this season. Reading are plotting to hijack Blackpool winger Tom Ince's move to Liverpool with an £8m bid. Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has set his heart on a summer move to Manchester United, although Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have also shown an interest in the 25-year-old, who is rated at £14m.

Premier League managers see Michael Carrick as Manchester United's prime playmaker. The Geordie has taken on the mantle this season from Paul Scholes. "What Carrick does looks easy and simple and it isn't," one Premier League coach told the Daily Mail. "To take the ball where he does, you need courage and technique and two good feet. You need to be available in all areas and to have the awareness of what is about you. "He always looks like he is in space but that's because his touch is so good and also because opposition players are scared to press him. "If you press him and don't get there bang on time, he will be past you with one touch or one pass and you are out of the game. So players tend to stand off him. "He has taken over the Scholes mantle and that's the highest compliment you can pay him."
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. Liverpool, meanwhile, were involved in the title race in 2009 but more often in recent times United have battled Chelsea and, latterly, City for Premier League supremacy. Speaking to Inside United magazine, on sale Wednesday 9 January, Scholes was asked where Liverpool currently feature among the Reds’ biggest rivalries. “I think it was the top one for quite some while,” he said. “Liverpool probably haven’t done as well as they’d have liked over the last few years – and they’d probably ...
What's your comments on this fans; Iam a Man Utd Fan but one thing I don't Like about Ferguson is his Insistance on Playing with a Flat Midfield. In Fact, United has the Best Defence in the Premier League had it not been the Fact that these guys in Defence are always too exposed because of a Very very Poor Midfield. Carrick,Fletcher,Clevery, Anderson are just Average Players who have failed to dictate everything in our Midfield. Kagawa has soon joined that Circles and though he is a good footballer,he still remains average. Mr. Paul Scholes the Master, age is not favoring him well. Giggys should emulate Edwin Vandar sar before spoiling his good record with below average performances and retire. He looks so tired and so is Scholes. When we talk of midefielders, look at people like Yaya Toure, Xaxi,Iniesta and others who dictate the outcome of their Clubs games. Thats why i agree with FIFA that in the English premiership,there are no world class Midfielders save for Yaya Toure. SAF side is even lacking atle ...

Premier League: 10 talking points from the Boxing Day action Sir Alex Ferguson tinkers too much, Chelsea still need Frank Lampard's nous and Dimitar Berbatov's T-shirt was not offensive "We always make it hard for ourselves, it's in the nature of this club." So goes the popular Sir Alex Ferguson refrain and, with his team coming from behind yet again, he will probably consider himself proved right yet again. But there is not a whole lot that Steve Bruce's late headers have in common with the epidemic of rescue missions required almost 20 years later. More likely they reflect compulsive tinkering and inexplicable team selections which are creating unnecessary messes that need clearing up. Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs are exceptional substitutes because both still produce exceptional moments but the moments before and after are of variable quality. Thus, with both starting against Newcastle and Tom Cleverley on the bench, it was no surprise to see United's midfield ignored by the visitors – Tottenham did t ...
Man Utd V NEWCASTLE (3pm) Manchester United - Newcastle Preview: Leaders looks for response after Swansea draw The Red Devils lead the Premier League by four points after drawing at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, but will have to overcome a Magpies side intent on climbing the table The only real injury problems Sir Alex Ferguson has are in midfield, with Anderson (hamstring) set to miss out until the trip to West Brom on December 29. Nani (hamstring) and Shinji Kagawa (knee) will most likely return against Steve Clarke's side at the Hawthorns asl well, so Ferguson may well call on the likes of Paul Scholes and Danny Welbeck to fill in the gaps in midfield. Wayne Rooney could be dropped after a disappointing display at Swansea in which he was substituted, with Chicharito or Welbeck ready to take his place up front. Alan Pardew has a number of fitness issues to contend with in his squad - Hatem Ben Arfa (hamstring) and Dan Gosling (knee) have no set return dates, and are likely to miss the trip to Old Traff ...
Manchester United are ready to end speculation over Rio Ferdinand’s future and offer him a new deal to stay on at Old Trafford for another year. According to the Daily Star, Sir Alex Ferguson wants the Former England captain to remain with the Red Devils but Ferdinand is still mulling over his options for the future. Recent media reports had suggested Ferdinand was ready to end his time with United, as were teammates Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. The Star also claims teams from China, the Middle East and America are ready to come in with lucrative offers in a bid to lure Ferdinand away from the Premier League, but the Manchester United boss still feels the 34-year-old has a lot to offer. Ferdinand has finally shrugged off serious fitness issued that had threatened his future 18 months ago or so, with him unable to play too many games too close together. That is no longer a problem and he has featured in the majority of United’s league games this season. Ferdinand moved to Old Trafford from Leeds United ...

And with his team looking to maintain their Premier League title challenge, Ferguson has opted to rest a number of senior names - including Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia and David De Gea - in favour of some of the club's younger players.
Man Utd's opener is their earliest premier league goal at Stamford Bridge since Paul Scholes scored after 3 mins in October 1995. Sharp.
Great record for Kevin Nolan to have only scored 6 fewer Premier League goals than Paul Scholes.
Giggs achieved his 600 th Premier League appearance against Wigan Athletic last Saturday, and proved to the footballing worldthat he is far from finished. When subbed in the 71 st minute alongside Paul Scholes, who was making his 700 th Manchester United appearance, the stadium rose to their feet to applause the Premier League’s longest-standing footballer as if it was his last game. Regardless of a fleet of talent gracing the Manchester United bench, including the likes of hot prospect Tom Cleverley and new signing Shinji Kagawa, Ryan Giggs proved on Saturday that he should still be regarded as one of the games’ best midfielders. Undoubtedly set to take a grand place in Manchester United’s coveted hall of fame when the time comes for the veteran to retire, Ryan Giggs still has success on his mind, and will hope to clinch his 13 th Premier League winners’ medal this season after signing for the club as a trainee in 1990.

Chelsea and England star Frank Lampard is the best midfielder in the Premier League, according to an EXCLUSIVE poll conducted by GMF for football fans. Over a quarter of nearly 130,000 voters said Lampard was the best of the bunch, but Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was very close behind and Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes a touch further back in third. The top three were ahead of the other options by quite a margin, with the closest of the rest being Arsenal new boy Santi Cazorla – the Spaniard won a good few more votes than Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, Tottenham Hotspur’s Scott Parker and Everton’s Belgium international Marouane Fellaini.

Former Manchester United player Nicky Butt believes the Red Devils will be able to replace legendary midfielder Paul Scholes when the 37-year-old finally retires.
Paul Scholes has been part of a host of trophy-winning squads during his 18 years in the first team and the midfielder says he has high hopes for the current group when it comes to challenging for silverware. The arrival of Robin Van Persie, Shinji Kagawa, Nick Powell and Alexander Büttner this summer with Chilean striker Angelo Henriquez also soon to be confirmed as a Red has further boosted an already talented squad. “You always like to see new players come in even if they’re in your position because it’s healthy for the team and exciting to play with the new players,” he said. “We’ve got strength everywhere in the squad. We’ve struggled with injuries to defenders, but when we have everyone fit I think there are two teams that the manager has available to him and that could compete in the Premier League and cup competitions. It all looks very healthy and, as players, we know when we get given our chance we have to take it. If you don’t, you’ll be out of the team, simple as that. “Al ...

Ivanovic ban boost for Chelsea Chelsea have received a boost ahead of Sunday's Premier League opener against Wigan after learning defender Branislav Ivanovic will not serve a suspension. The Serbian was sent off for a studs-first challenge on compatriot Aleksandar Kolarov in the Blues' 3-2 defeat to Manchester City in the Community Shield. It was initially thought Ivanovic would be banned for three matches, beginning with the match at the DW Stadium. But it has been confirmed the FA changed their rules after an incident during an Amsterdam Tournament in 2006, when Manchester United duo Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney were sent off against Porto and had to serve three-match bans. The rule change relates to all non-competitive pre-season fixtures, including the Community Shield, leaving Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo free to select Ivanovic at the weekend. (Sky Sports)
Nemanja Vidic was sorely missed. Jonny Evans proved an able deputy, but the Northern Ireland international has some way to go before he can command the same status and influence as his Serbian team-mate. Rio Ferdinand, of course, is a vastly experienced centre-back, as good as any in the world in his prime, who has successfully adapted his game having initially struggled following the flurry of injuries that seemed to affect the athleticism and pace he once boasted. He is, however, three years older than Vidic, the undisputed leader of the United back four, and will be as happy as anyone to see his old partner return. VIVA LA VIDA It must have been difficult for the 30-year-old to watch the man who can conceivably be labelled his direct counterpart, Vincent Kompany, produce a series of inspirational performances to lead Manchester City to the Premier League title. Paul Scholes returned from retirement to drag United back to the summit of the table; Vidic's comeback might have helped to keep them there. Th ...

Julian Joachim is to train with Boston Town with a view to joining the Poachers. The former Premier League star is said to be "very keen" on returning to Tattershall Road, where he started his career as a raw teenager. Joint manager Ian Dunn said: "We need to discuss terms with him but we're hopeful he will agree to sign. "He still has a lot to offer and we will really benefit from his quality. "This is a statement of intent on our behalf that we mean business this season." Joachim, now 37, has agreed to come to pre-season training, which starts tomorrow (June 26). After making a big impression as a youngster for the Poachers' youth team, he went on to play for a string of big clubs including Leicester City, Aston Villa, Coventry City and Leeds United. Joachim played alongside Nicky Butt, Sol Campbell, Robbie Fowler, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes for the England side that won the European Under 18 Championships in 1993 and also won nine England Under 21 caps.
Michael Owen reckons that if Paul Scholes was there England would have done better at Euro 2012. Total *** Dont remember England winning anything last time he was playing. Would he have got into the team before Parker or Gerrard NO. Play him where in the side?? Next im waiting for if RIO had played he would have scored the winning header. Scholes was a very good player but that was years ago and Ferdinand has been one of the most overrated players ever.Without Vidic (best defender in premier league) he gets found out.
Paul Scholes scores his 106th Premier League goal for just 1 short of Ryan Giggs's 107.

Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes have won the Premier League in three different decades... does that count?! lol
If football is the perfect blend of entertainment and sporting drama, this season has had just about everything you could ask for. And heading into the final straight, the title race, relegation battle and Champions League places are going right to the line. It is a cliche to describe the Premier League as unpredictable, but it is true. Who could have predicted the returns of Thierry Henry and Paul Scholes? Who foresaw the results achieved by Swansea, Norwich and, more latterly, Wigan? Sincewhen do United beat Arsenal 8-2, or City win 6-1 at Old Trafford? There have been some outrageous, magical days this season. And, without doubt, there is ONE more left.Greg Stubart
Sir Alex Ferguson faces a battle to keep Paul Scholes on the books at Manchester United for another season, according to the Daily Telegraph
I want that Sir Alex can read this message to know how 99% of Manchester United fans feel now. In 2009, we sold Cristiano Ronaldo by 94 Milion Euro but we had not bought any Worldclass player to replace him. The result was that From that season we got just a "carling Cup" and 2 Community Shield and 1 English Premier League. 2OO9/2O1O was a very bad season for us!! 2O1O/2O11 was special in the EPL , but we were bad in the Final of the UCL. This year was the deception for all United Fans !! we made a very bad season from 2OO5.Another Time we didn't bounght a worldClass players , and especially in the miedfield. So that we can't replace Paul Scholes. Now it's Time to raise Again.. and buy new players to fight in the EPL and in the UEFA CL because many teams in England & Europe are more strong than the last years. All Manchester United Fans want to see brillant names at Old Trafford, Like Shingi Kagawa, Eden Hazard, Gerrard Piqué, Modiric...and the List is long. Please, please and PLease Sir Alex respect Uni ...

Man Utd hero Butt: Man City will NOT win title Manchester United hero Nicky Butt insists the title race is still not over. Butt is not as downbeat as many United followers, knowing enough of life on Tyneside to be aware what a threat Newcastle could be to City's Premier League dream. "I am still baffled," he said. "It is far from over. I still don't think City will win the league. "I remember playing West Ham in 1995. People said we would tear them apart and win the league. "But football is not like that. People have pride. City have got two tough games, as have United." Meanwhile, Butt has defended Sir Alex Ferguson after their derby defeat. Butt insists Ferguson would've found the players capable of making the difference at United - if they were available. "If they were there and available, the manager would have bought these players by now," said Butt. "He has money to buy players but he won't spend it on someone who can't improve the team. "You do need to look at replacing people like Paul Scholes and ...
I can understand the way Manchester United played in their 1-0 defeat by Manchester City, which sees Roberto Mancini's team move to the Premier League summit. They played with five in midfield to go and protect what they had, and got men behind the ball. The problem I had in the middle of the park was that they had a 37-year-old Paul Scholes, a 38-year-old Ryan Giggs and Park Ji-sung, who hasn't played for a while.  Getting behind the ball was easy but when they got it back, they could not support Wayne Rooney with ease and that left him isolated. That's alright for the first half an hour, because they were absolutely cruising, but when you lose a goal you have to get more men forward to get back in the game. In the last 15 minutes you're thinking, 'they have got to be a threat at some stage' but it never happened. So it wasn't really the tactics that I was surprised about, it was more the line-up. I thought David De Gea was at fault for Vincent Kompany's goal. He's been under pressure all season with ...
The Manchester Derby: On one side we have Manchester United. The most successful team in English football, the name known around the world. Their attack is led by one of the most tenacious players in the world : Wayne Rooney. Along with Mexican sensation Chicharito Hernandez and one of the best midfielders of his time Paul Scholes, Manchester United look to seal up their 20th Premier League title in their cross-town rivals’ home. On the other side we have Manchester City, the 600 million euro experiment. Saying one player leads this attack may be hard to choose. City have the best striking duo right now with Tevez and Kun Aguero, but the real star of the show (for me at least) is David Silva. He is the reason this machine runs so well. If Silva plays to his full potential city should have no problem winning this. City takes this game 4-2
I'd say Roy Keane, Patrick Viera, Paul Scholes, and their Premier League medals would argue that..
Former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer feels the Premier League 20 Seasons best player gong should be awarded to either Ryan Giggs or Paul scholes . On The Best player ever to play in the PL : 'It's a tough question to answer - but to my mind it would have to be a choice of two men: Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes"
Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie has been voted 2012 Footballer ofthe Year by the Football Writers' Association. The Holland striker, 28, topped the poll of journalists with a landslide victory ahead of Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney in second place and his Old Trafford team-mate Paul Scholes third, with Fulham's Clint Dempsey fourth. Van Persie's 34 goals in all competitions has helped propel the Gunners into the top four of the Barclays Premier League leaving them on the brink of Champions League qualification for next season

Its between Paul Scholes and Thierry Henry for the best Premier League player.
Sir Alex Ferguson paid tribute to Paul Scholes for pushing United to within touching distance of a record 20th title. The 37-year-old midfielder began the season with pipe and slippers having announced his retirement – and could end it with an 11th Premier League crown. And if United do go on to hold off the challenge from City for domestic supremacy, they will owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the Former England international. It was on a cold January afternoon at the Etihad Stadium that Scholes stunned the football world by announcing his return from retirement. It was an FA Cup third round tie between United and City – but may well turn out to be the day the title race turned on its head. His most notable contribution on the pitch that day was to give the ball away in the build-up to City scoring as they came close to a remarkable comeback from 3-0 down. Off the pitch he divided opinion – some hailing the return of a legend, others fearing for the future of a side that had to send out an SOS t ...
Carlos Tevez has to be the happiest man at Manchester City. The club has gone into freefall since his return - and he's escaped scrutiny scot free. Instead, Mario Balotelli, with all his antics, has been made the scapegoat for all that is wrong at the Etihad. And it's easy to blame the Italian, the red cards, the car accidents, the gatecrashing of media conferences. Dead easy. But how can a young lad, at 21, who is so self-entitled and self-absorbed, be convinced to change his ways when he sees a so-called leader of the dressing room go AWOL, slate the club, the city, the fans and then be welcomed back by the same locker room he let down - and a couple of belt sizes larger?! Sir Alex Ferguson has been lauded as the difference between the two teams this season. But it goes deeper than that. Its the culture inside the respective locker rooms. Tevez has been back at City for OVER A MONTH. Yet, his roly-poly body still can't cope with more than 20 minutes at Premier League level. Contrast that to Paul Scholes ...
