United - Scholes Mind Change!

United - Scholes Mind Change!

Just how close did Paul Scholes come to agreeing to come out of international retirement?

The reason I ask is that when Fabio Capello was quizzed about his provisional list of 30 players for his squad the England boss spoke about the possible inclusion of Scholes.

It transpires that Scholes was on the verge of agreeing to a comeback but when broached on the subject on the morning of the announcement admitted that he`d had a change of heart.

The tabloid press go on to mention that Capello wanted Scholes to play the role of the holding midfielder, a role we`re sure that Paul could do more than adequately.

But it seems the quiet lad from Oldham simply preferred to spend the summer with his family, with Capello remarking,

"We tried to convince him to come back for England, but he said no."

"He preferred to stay with his family. He`s one of the best midfielders."


Paul`s prerogative we`d suggest!

England's football ahsn't been the same since he was ousted by Sven for Lampard. England stopped being a "footballing" (if we ever were) to a "Let's-get-a-set piece-and-use-Beckham" playing team. Under Hoddle we played ball on the ground and a free flowing game. He's got the "best" record since Sir Alf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England_national_football_team#Managers), whereas I'm sure despite Sven's similar ratio we weren't impressed with the static, pass-pass-pass at the back, then a long punt forward. All the top team play football through the middle and look to control possession working between the halfway and opposition box. Scholes is, imo, one of the best team players England had for years. Couldn't tackle to save his life, but that never stopped him trying! He could keep the team ticking over, utilising possession rather than lumping it to Heskey. I think Scholes should've done it as ManUSA ;) didn't win the title and I wanted you guys to win so Sir Alex could have the 4peat. Looks like you got him for another 4 years at least then :) Unlucky on a good season. Some work to do still, but, see you in the Champions League!!

mello in name too! Nice change from the other spurs fans coming here. Unfortunate that some one like Scholes can be shunted out to accomodate Gerrard and Lampard. Scholes has the unique talent of controlling the pace of the game, wish we could have one more of him for the next 15 years!
