'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Upton Park Witnessed Scholes At His Best Again

Only yesterday did Scholes pend that he might retire at the end of the season, considering that he's finding it more and more difficult to get into the team and he's exactly happy with his contribution. And today he was back to his magnificent best once again.

'His future is safe at Manchester United' Mike Phelan confirmed after the game, adding that it was nice to see him scoring with his left foot which is something of a rarity for Scholes. But it wasn't just the goal: he was flawless. Excellent passing combined with good defensive work, his positioning was perfect throughout the afternoon - it was his best display of the season.

Retirement? When he's still capable of playing like that?

As an Aston Villa supporter I hope we are talking in similar supperlatives in 10 years time about Jimmy Milner. What an immense servant he has been and, by the the sounds of things, continues to be.

Excellent performance there by scholes and adam a lot of credit has to be given to your manager as well,he has played an important role in lifting villa to another level.

Yes, he was good, but that's your problem isn't it? Too reliant on the golden boys
BlueWolfie
Oh Wolfie,last year it was ronaldo that we were too reliant on,this year it is giggsy and scholesy,are we just a team that relies on 1 or 2 players to get the team moving in your eyes?
Antriksh (abmtd)
We were also too reliant on Van Nistelrooy, Beckham, Keane, Cantona...etc, etc.

dont mind relying on a player to get the job done so long as it is done, and at least we have players that we can actually rely on.
