'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Scholes: 'Never Do It The Easy Way'

Paul Scholes was his usual efficient self today as we overcame Everton but he believes the biggest influence on the game was Iain Turner's mistake.

The young keeper let Carrick's corner slip through his hands with nobody around him and thus he allowed O'Shea to score our first goal. United built up their momentum after his gaffe and won deservedly.

'We just needed that first goal and fortunately we got it after the keeper's mistake,' Scholes told MUTV. 'From then on we always looked like we'd win the game.

'It's a big victory for us. We'd have taken any kind of win before kick-off but to do it in the manner we did was great. We never seem to do things the easy way.

'I still felt we had a chance even when they got their second. Last weekend against Middlesbrough we probably lost our patience a little bit too quickly, but I always felt we'd create chances and score goals against Everton. Thankfully we persevered and it's paid off.'

This 'we never do things the easy way' is a popular line among everyone concerned with Manchester United but if you look at the evidence you must say it's true. We have a romantic team in this sense and I bet most fans love it. I and all those whom I know do.

Fergie is not so thrilled by this sometimes but he's looking forward now another epic game, and possibly another rollercoaster as his team prepares to face Milan. Surely, getting through but losing Scholes for the final with a booking would be 'doing it the hard way'. Now we should try those despisable easy methods - and Fergie thinks he knows some of them.

'You cannot send a player out in the semi-final of the European Cup and tell him not to tackle,' he said.

'But Paul has to make sure he doesn't get booked. If he stays on his feet and tackles properly, he won't have a problem.

'In Europe, they just don't accept sliding in. That is where he gets all his bookings.

'We accept it in our country when he slides in but they don't look at it the same way in Europe. It is not filthy or violent conduct, it is all about interpretation.'
