United - One Last Hurrah For Scholes?

Paul Scholes continues to defy the sands of time and churns out impressive performances for Man United.

His latest, against Fulham on Sunday, was witnessed first hand by Fabio Capello and its 'said' that the England manager might make one last attempt to try and lure the midfielder out of international retirement to help during the Euro 2012 qualifying?

Scholes has mentioned his disappointment at not reversing his decision and missing out on he world cup, although he also said he wanted Capello himself to be calling him and asking him - not his assistant, and with a very limited time scale to decide this.

At 35 Scholes 'should' be too old, with former Man United midfielder David Beckham already told he is too old as this age, yet Scholes' ability to influence a game as he does give him that chance to defy age easier, but will he though.

Do you think, and would you want, Paul Scholes to come out of international retirement or would you rather he just concentrated on club football with Man United?

Though i would like him to just concentrate on club football as an England fan (not a delirious one) i'd love him to have one last game.

Don't see the poinbt in him coming out of retirement at this stage of his career. He is highly unlikely to feature in the European Championships, so why block another player during the qualifiers? Makes no sense from a club point of view either, as at his age Scholes needs to get as much rest as he can between matches, not go off on his jollies with the national squad.

But from a personal point it may be one last hurrah in the national side for him.
