Default what about Scholsey?

Part of a ManYoo midfield consistently outplayed in big euro matches (madrid, leverkusen, munich etc ) he's a flat track bully whos great playing in a 4-4-2 against inferior opposition (he had a hissy fit & refused to play in a league cup game once when fergie asked him to play a different role)

No he had a hissy fit when Fergie put him in a squad to play a league cup game at Arsenal when he played the previous day against Liverpool in a league game. The game at Arsenal was played a day after the game ay Anfield due to fixture congestion.

I thought the SFI only deal in facts.

Fair play to anyone who can actually give the original cause of them playing on a sunday then the monday.

I've never been too crazy about Paul Scholes, I've always thought of him as a luxury player.

That's why I'm looking forward to Hargreaves being added to the squad, I've got a lot of time for Hargreaves and think it will give United a lot more control in the years to come.
I see the midfield next year being shared between Giggs, Scholes, Carrick, Hargreaves and Ronaldo with Giggs and Scholes each featuring in only about 30 league games.

With Kaka blossoming now at 25, the future is bright for United's Ronaldo and Rooney at 22 and 21 to develop further.... and if those players along with other recent acquisitions can nail a title medal in the coming weeks than the future is looking dazzling!!!

In fact there should be a hell of lot more threads thrown up today to celebrate last night result, ..as in the the coming couple of weeks and years things are going to get very tough for the abu-se

I genuinely just cannot believe my eyes.

Hargreaves is the most overrated, underskilled, one trick pony of a midfielder that I think I've laid eyes on. Not a creative player, not a destructive player - basically another Carrick except not even as talented as Carrick.

He's just what United need.

He's a good general all round player and will knit things together nicely for United, exerting control over the game, allowing Ronaldo, Rooney etc to do their thing. The best thing about Carrick is his passing game and of this we have much much better to see in the coming years.

...what is this one trick you speak of above?

Agree with that though i thought you were a bit harsh on Scholesy

In certain games though there is no doubt a Hargreaves or similar type player would help them
