Scholes Adds Spurs To His Pontificating Drivel

Scholes Adds Spurs To His Pontificating Drivel



Ageing rag midfielder Paul Scholes has been talking about City again but has thrown 'expert' comments on our close rivals Spurs into his bordering on the obsessive mix...

For the second time in a week united's rusting midfield anchor man has decided to re-diss The Blues via the hacks, revisiting his been there, seen it, done it angle.

In an interview with every rag's favourite sunday rag, The Sunday Mirror, this time around, he seems to be referring to a Premier League 'Big Three.'

'I honestly think it will be the same as any other season really...The same teams that are always there will be up there - ourselves, Chelsea and Arsenal.'

Whither now, Liverpool, then??

'Tottenham had a great year but whether they manage to do that again, I'm not sure. How good City are going to be we don't know yet. They have been spending big money again this summer but whether they can gel together in time this season remains to be seen, although there's no doubt they have a quality team now.'

Thanks for that nod of recognition Scholesy, but again, you've highlighted that when the rags were repeatedly breaking transfer fee records unchallenged across the years this 'gelling' factor was never in question.

How times have changed for the club with the new benefactor All Over Now!

The rags will be appearing at Eastlands on Wednesday 10th November at 8pm Manchester time.

Interesting that the rags are all talking about anyone but themselves. Suppose therre's not a lot to talk about over on the dark side. Do you feel a disturbance in the force Mr Scholes?

Its a matter of time (And a small amount at that) until the party is over at Old Trafford. Net Debt is set to reach GBP 1billion by the end of 2011. Yikes

united keep saying, they have money to spend. They are not spending it. Huddersfield Yiddo is right: Yikes. On the other hand City are definately trying to buy the title. I mean, Bellamy, Robineo Santa Cruise and Adby whatever. All bought for mega bucks and being disgarded after one season. That's trying to buy it. Spurs on the other hand are as pure as the driven snow.

Adebayour and Bellamy aren't going anywhere I hope. RSC can go for being injury prone, Robihno can go for being a spoilt child...

Why don't you want Adebayor to go, Heavy? Uses up a lot in wages(But that wouldn't really matter to you guys would it?), doesn't seen all that hard-working and is another body who expects to be in the 25. Get rid, and use Tevez and (hopefully) Balotelli as strikers, that's a world-beating front pair IF-and it's a big IF-they gel.

He isnt exactly having a dig is he? its what everyone is thinking, can spurs actually break the top 4 again? my money is on them too and can city gell to together in time? will the likes of silva, toure, boteng, kolarov fit into the premier league only time will tell, mr scholes hit the nail on the head really so fair play too him. Im not having a pop at you btw i think you will get 3rd with arsenal dropping 5th and pool 7th again.

I don't want him to go as he will score plenty. 14 last year, taking into account the Togo shooting, injuries and lengthy suspensions, all from 26 games. He may appear lazy on the pitch, Tevez is the livewire, but I want him to stay. Front four of Tevez, Balotelli, Adebayour and Bellamy if required. No team should rely on just two strikers...

Who said you'd have just two strikers? You just said Bellamy was one you hoped wouldn't go, so technically you'd have three, with Silva able to play the second striker role if required. It's all objecitve, anyway, but personally I feel you don't need Adebayor. Us on the other hand, well, that's a different story. :)
