Like Xavi and Zidane, I too love Paul Scholes. I love his complete inability to tackle, and I love his screaming volleys, and I love his comedy red cards (my favourite being the one in the Super Cup v Zenit, when he punched the ball into the net from a corner to 'equalise').
He's definitely right to retire now. He's not quite had it, but he's past his best. He'll be missed. What an impetus for United to spend on midfield though.
