Scholes - Another Year?

Scholes - Another Year?

The big question now, is having come out of retirement, could Paul Scholes possibly be tempted to continue for another season?

It`s obvious that Scholes kept himself remarkably fit during his brief retirement and the player openly admitted he missed the involvement being a professional footballer brings to your life, but would, a this age, another season be stretching it too far?

One person who knows a lot about Scholes having nurtured him through his younger days as well as the majority of the others who formed that `Class of 1992` thinks that Scholes would have no problems doing another year.

Eric Harrison, discussing the Scholes situation with the media, is attributed as having commented,

"Scholes coming back is a big confidence boost for the team and the club."

"When he retired you thought they had to sign a world-class player because that`s what he is."

"I think he will play this season and another and it will solve a lot of problems."

"I thought he retired too soon. It`s a fantastic move and I`m so pleased the manager accepted that he wanted to comeback because he is world-class."

"When he, Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley all play together United will have an unbelievable midfield."

"That`s the engine room of the team and it`s where they`ve been struggling. But with players of that caliber they can do anything."

Some interesting thoughts there but does Sir Alex Ferguson concur with those views, it remains to be seen.

I think its great he stays another year while not the midfielder he once was, if you read the players comments, he still is one the best passers in the game. His experience and knowhow is vital for the youngsters. I still wouldnlike to see the likes og Pogba and Morrison make the grade, but I guess the are not ready yet as SAF decides not to play. Great news Sholesy, too good to retire.

can still do a job when called for a short term fix in the rebuilding plan . But we need a settled midfield oh yes and an injury free defence .

As we are not in CL - why isn't Fergie looking at signing one of those he reckons are good enough to buy - like that lad from Basel??
