When Paul Scholes leaves United...(which will hopefully be never, or a long time anyhow!) I expect he will go down as one of their all time greats, alongside other players of his era, such as Beckham, Giggs and the rest of Fergie's Fledglings.
The twenty - six year old midfielder from Salford (Greater Manchester) is allready one of England's best players, especially at the current time. He made his debut for them on the 24th of May, 1997, only six days after Eric Cantona retired from football.
The match was a great one, Scholesy set up Ian Wright's match winning goal with a magnificent croos. Not surprisingly, everyone was suprised that he was so brilliant as he was finding it hard to get into the Manchester United first team even though he had made his debut in 1994 against Ipswich Town when he was just 20.
When Eric Cantona left, It would've been likely that Paul Scholes was relieved, as the main competetion was gone, and there was more room for him (another great thing Eric Le Roi has done for us). There should've been before though, as he is a wonderful player and every other tem in the league would have him as his star striker.
In my veiw, Paul Scholes is one of the best strikers at United and he is the kind of player players should base themselves on. He has a brilliant cross and can hit a ball from any position. Most of all, he has no aggression whatsoever. Yeah, Ok, He's got a few yellow cards to his name but compared to players like Theiry Henry and Hasselbaink he's innocent.
