Scholes on Sneijder

Scholes on Sneijder

It`s strange how Paul Scholes, as a player, used to have very little to say but now he`s on the coaching staff he seems to have discovered his voice.

Not that we`re complaining though as his thoughts are quite productive when it comes to us adding our own comments,

With all the talk about Wesley Sneijder possibly coming to Old Trafford, with one tabloid inferring that all that needs sorting out is the salary side of things, Scholes has provided a few thoughts on the Dutch maestro, commenting,

"Yes, Sneijder is brilliant. He`s been brilliant for the last year or so, with Inter Milan and Holland."

"I don`t think it probably worked out as well as he would have liked at Real Madrid but he`s a top player."

"I`m sure there are a lot of clubs who will be after him if he is available."

True, a lot of clubs might go after him, including our noisy neighbours I suspect, but do many have the allure that United have?

"do many have the allure that United have?" - Depends what the motivation is really. Sneijder said he wants to play at the top level in each country and if he's true to his word then surely we'll be his preferred destination. If it's money then City or Chelsea. He's not on his way to us though, Fergie's ensuring that's as clear as daylight.

I fully expect to see Sneijder in a Utd shirt soon. Fergie loves his mind games, who's to say his comments on Sneijder are not more of the same, remember he said that Carrick is a good player.

TF7 - do City and Chelsea not offer the opportunity to compete at the top for trophies? Do U*d pay less to their star players than City do?
04/08/2011 08:06:00
United pay what they can afford, a shrap contrast to yourselves. Lets put it this way, Sneijder has repeatedly stated how he would like to play at the top level in England, namely ourselves. He talks of how he's played for Inter and Madrid and if he moves to England we're his preferred choice. Then Sneijder has the choice between playing for Man U and Man City and he chooses City, you're telling me that wouldn't be money orientated? This is all hypothetical, I genuinely don't believe we're in for Sneijder and, if we are, he is certainly not my personal preference.

Blah blah, players only move to City for the money, blah blah. Heard it all before, but even the most pig ignorant rival fans can now see that City have the potential to win things nowadays, so give it a rest. P.S. Aguero was offered the same wage (gross) by Atletico, yet he chose to come to us (UK's higher tax rate means he's earning less now than if he'd stayed in Spain). Still think it's all about the money, or are you going to wallow in your "history" nonsense again?
04/08/2011 14:14:00
Can you direct me towards quotes from Sneijder where he says U*d are his preferred choice?
04/08/2011 14:30:00
I'm not talking in the case of every player fcb and I've even said to you in the past that not every player is joining for the money but to be part of something new, in the case of Sneijder however, even a blind man can see that if had the choice of his preferred club, ourselves and City, if he were to choose City he will be choosing money.

Thanks. Your original comment is still a nonsense, the simple fact is City and Chelsea are at the top level in England whether you like to admit it or not, so if hypothetically speaking Sneijder were to sign for City it wouldn't necessarily be about the money.
04/08/2011 15:25:00
I don't like it, it doesn't agree with my point of view, it's nonsense. Don't expect you to like it but the simple fact is an outright choice between City and United from a player who has expressed a desire to join United would mean a move to anywhere in England other than United is money orientated.
04/08/2011 15:46:00
I'm sure Sneijder made those quotes before you decided to haggle him down on the wages front Famous. All players go for the money, like it or not, and if you won't pay him the going rate, he won't sign for united.
