In a strange and somewhat disturbing twist, Alex Ferguson decided that all his disappointingly playing team really needs is nothing more but a re-signing of a 37 year old ex player, who wasn`t even good enough by the end of his career last season, never mind some 6 months later with no match practice.... Scholes first appearance was this afternnon against rivals Manchester City, when Scholes not so surprisingly gifted the truly talanted and sharp Agero with a ball, which he quickly converted into City`s second goal....so is it madness or a stroke of genius?
I think its genius, Paul Scholes was one of Utd's greatest players, and although he retired he still kept in great shape coaching at old trafford. I am sure i read somewhere that he has only come back for one season, but with so many players out on injury it can only be a good thing.
I think he looked better and not as rusty as I thought he might. I feel it's a decent move for United as they've clearly missed Scholes and he can do a job for half a season. However they need to spend big in the summer and replace him for the long term.
He looked very good the other day, Man U haven't replaced him and i personally think Man Utd thought Wesley Sneijder would have joined them in the summer, which would of eased the pressure in that central role. But for now this is a good stop gap til they bring in someone with a bit of experience.
