Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Paul Scholes has retired today and no doubt he was one of the best players EVER to play the beautiful game. People talk about how good Xavi is today and has been over the last 5 years but for me Scholes is king...

At his 10 year best between 1995-2005, Paul Scholes could do everything Xavi can do now but add goals, goals & goals, which for me ranks the ginger ninja higher. If you were to compare his abiities to other players then Paul Scholes at his best had the vision of Beckham, the passing of Xavi + the touch and shot of Zidane. A true great of the game who scored over 150 goals in 675 games for United. Between his golden years in between 1995 & 2005 he scored...

120 goals in 439 games - bloody brilliant for a midfielder and god knows how many assists he had.
