The Final Hurrah

Having been tempted out of retirement once before, it appears that Paul Scholes is set to call time on his career next summer.

Reports, in the red-top press, infer that 38 year-old Scholes has decided that this season will be his last and that there will be no going back on the decision.

Naturally, with one of the elder statesman in our squad deciding to call time on his career, the red-tops are also speculating that another may also be contemplating such a move.

Ryan Giggs, now 39 years-old, has only made 7 starts this season and may believe that his time is also up.

We can but wait and see although Sir Alex Ferguson, at his pre-match press conference, ahead of the trip to Swansea, later denied Scholes was contemplating retirement for a second time.

Scholes still has plenty to offer to the team, he's still challenging for a first team place and offers the experience we need in that position at times. Giggs though to me looks like he's no longer needed, he's no longer challenging for a first team place, only ever appearing in games where Fergie places very little importance and in high intensity games he disappears and is more of a hinderance than help. I hate to say it but I think age has well and truly caught up with him and with younger central midfielders coming through he's nothing more than a passenger, unless of course it's actually all down to poor form.
