Scholes Future Still Uncertain

Scholes Future Still Uncertain

As we head towards the end of what, we reckon, will be a history making season, there`s still no official word on whether Paul Scholes will prolong his career by another season.

Scholes who will not participate in the action at the Emirates Stadium today courtesy of serving the last of a three match ban imposed for the red card he received in the FA Cup semi-final, is reckoned to be still thinking about the matter.

Sir Alex, who is already losing two experienced stalwarts in Gary Neville and Edwin van der Sar, has admitted that talks have been held with Scholes but wasn`t giving much away when he commented,

"I`ve had a few chats with Paul, encouraging him to stay on. We`ll see."

Perhaps the decision may well hinge on how Paul feels he performs in the remaining few games; only time will tell.

No reason why not to, however I'm beginning to worry that his presence is going to begin to hinder the youngsters. Cleverley was bunged out on loan due to him needing more experience, I don't want to see him bunged out on loan again because we can't accomodate all of our players. If he's given a years extension, it would offer security for another year and personally I would like that, I would also like for him to fade out of the squad in a Neville-esque style and have a youngster slowly replace him as the season goes on thus lessening the impact on the side when Scholes does inevitably retired. Legend of a player and man.

I really do hope he stays on for another season so that the myth of Paul Scholes is destroyed once and for all. Yes, a very good player, but as his ageing legs let him down we'll see more of the nasty, petulant, vicious little thug that has been glossed over by the sycophantic media. Go on Scholes, hang around for one more year!

fcb, no-one cares whether Scholes can't tackle or whether he's being malicious. I genuinely mean that, no-one actually gives the slightest toss, so why do you? I mean seriously why do you care? Has he ever actually injured a player? Has he ever threatened a players career via a break? I reckon, there's an intent to shake up a player, make them aware of his presence and that he's on their heels in his but at the same time he's not stupid and knows the difference between a leg-breaking challenge and just a poor bad challenge. A small niggly challenge breaks up play but at the consequence of a possible advantage, a bad challenge ensures play is broken up. These backhand tactics have become a trend in tactical football and in fairness, with so many teams adopting this approach, you best get use to it. A slight aggrievance that De Jong is a scapegoat for bad challenges whilst Scholes walks away scot free I reckon.
