Advantages: goals, energy, creativity
Disadvantages: red head temper?
Paul Scholes is the best Manchester United player at the moment, and even as a Liverpool fan, with players such as Beckham and Keane that is high praise indeed.
Scholes gets far less publicity than certain of his team-mates but he definitely does his talking with his feet. His obvious reluctance to talk to the media is in stark contrast to the headlline grabbing antics of David Beckham that do him no credit. His recent displays for United have outshone Beckham and Keane and with such a level (if ginger!) head on his shoulders there is no reason why Scholes cannot carry on with this form or even improve.
Hopefully Sven Goran Eriksson will have Scholes as the first name on any of his teamsheets - his goal scoring, inventive passing, tackling and work rate make him a very valuable part of England's future.
