Scholes - Seeing Red?

Scholes - Seeing Red?

Seeing a red-card brandished in front of Paul Scholes was, in some people`s opinions, the moment United lost the match yesterday.

After the game, Sir Alex Ferguson had his own views on the tackle that saw Scholes take an early bath, commenting to the media,

"We`ve seen it over Paul`s career."

"He`s given us some fantastic moments and is one of the greatest players this club has ever had, but he has these red mist moments."

"It was maybe unfortunate in a sense that he went for a ball but it bounced up and he went through and caught the boy on the thigh."

Must have been bad if Sir Alex didn`t dispute the decision in the slightest!

Stupid tackle from Scholes, we can have no complaints about the red card. We were being over run in midfield and Scholes just lost it as would I if I had to play alongside Carrick.

There was nothing unfortunate about it, it was a filthy malicious challenge with no intent whatsoever to win the ball, such a shame that a player of his talent feels the need to do this. I will always remember Scholes for being a dirty ******** as much as I remember him for his talent.

You know what they say about red heads and fiery tempers. When losing it's important to remain composed and level headed, Scholes let us down there.

if DeJong had done that the press would be all over it like a rash, but Scholes has done all through his career, and just had well it's Paul Scholes we know he cant tackle but........ well now he should hang his boots up and think what might have been as regards the epitaph of a good career not for some DIRTY Late tackles that have blighted his career.....

Paul Scholes 10 - Nigel DeJong (dirtiest player ever, or so I've been told) 0.

It's 10-1 fcb:, plus, a red card only shows you got caught. There's no denying some of De Jongs dangerous challenges. Without a doubt a great DM but a bit OTT and rash with his challenges at times.

Perhaps TF7, but never malicious and most defnitely not a thug, which the wonderful British press would have us all believe.
