born in 1974, paul scholes is a mancunian thru and thru joining manchester united as a youngster in 1991.
His debut followed in 1994 with a 3-2 defeat to Ipswich. along with the magic midfield that united had in the latter part of the 90's - giggs, keane, scholes and beckham scholes became part of a team that dominated the early half of the premierships history.
a comparision to scholes at his height can be made to Stevie G, powerfull runs into the edge of the box followed by a powerdriver into the net, however Gerard looks set to eclipse scholes in international recognition.
more recently the form of Scholes has been linked with a downturn in manchester uniteds form, the humiliating failure in this years champions league along with the domestic domination by chelsea
Summary: Good at his peak
