Paul Scholes appears to be having a renaissance as far as his career goes.

Hanging on in there for a last hurrah the lad from Oldham has already turned in two man-of-the-match performances.

Last night his passing saw United control the game for long periods and Scholes was the man behind most of our best moves.

The introduction of another golden oldie, Ryan Giggs, and his subsequent contribution, had Sir Alex Ferguson drooling afterwards, when in his post match interview he remarked,

“Scholes and Giggs are two players blessed with something special.”

“I hope there is another player like them in the future.”

“They are two players who can lift a game. Scholes proved again that he is just a master of his trade. His vision, passing range and his willingness to play is marvelous.”

“He`s still got the appetite. When you get to that age and retain that, then it is good for us.”


Scholes and Giggs belong to the old school, where effort, passion and discipline are paramount.

Last night Giggs also made history becoming the first player to have started in 21 consecutive seasons and scoring in each prompting Sir Alex to add when told about the achievement,

“That`s amazing I may give him a rest now.”

Next up are Fulham, can Scholes make it three golden performances? Can Giggs continue to turn back the years?

Off course they can!
