SCHOLES NAMED BARCLAYS PLAYER OF THE MONTH FOR AUGUST

- Manchester United midfielder wins award for the fourth time -

Paul Scholes has been named Barclays Player of the Month for August after a string of superb performances helped Manchester United remain unbeaten in their bid to regain the Barclays Premier League title.

The former England playmaker gave a midfield master class in Manchester United`s opening match of the season, setting up goals for Dimitar Berbatov and Ryan Giggs in the 3-0 win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

Scholes continued his great form with a trademark drive from the edge of the area to give Manchester United an early lead in the 2-2 draw at Fulham - his 150th goal for the club. He ended the month by playing a key role in the 3-0 home win over West Ham United to help United finish the month in third place in the Barclays Premier League table.

The evergreen midfielder has now received the award four times in his glittering career and is only one behind Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard in the all-time list. He is tied on four awards with Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo, Frank Lampard, Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel that includes representatives from football`s governing bodies, the media and fans.

Ohh how surprising ha? Can you really claim he deserved it more than Drogba? This happens too often, ridiculous.

Scholes has single-handedly dominated the midfield in all 3 of our games against, well, harder opposition than Chelsea.
