Paul scholes has been an outstanding player throughout his career, but how he''s not been sent off more is beyond me. His tackling ability is shambolic and most of the time referees treat his tackles as "a strikers challenge" which is farcical considering he''s a midfielder. Andy gray winds me up when commentating a man utd game, he always has a giggle to himself about schools'' "typical" challenging. But let''s say it was Huddleston, felliani, or even mascherano that committed the amount of fouls scholes has then I''m sure Andy gray would be screaming for a card to be branded. Anyway, rant over.

Pepe Reina? :) Seriously, I agree with Greg Cole. Berba had a magnificent performance.

Agree with Greg Cole, Berbatov was fantastic against Newcastle.

@Greg cole typical Man U fan, only watched one game on the weekend obviously. a good article all the players mentioned played well and berbatov was good but not great. considering the players mentioned in the article how can you say berbatov was as good? stockdale made very good saves even though no one has heard of him, Jones scored a great free kick, marlon harewood hasnt played in the prem for about 2 seasons and scored twice, even though most people never gave blackpool a chance, Bale played great in midfield again, mascherano put in a solid display even though he wants to leave, drogba got a hatrick, charlie adam was good even though blackpool were clear underdogs, i was at the villa game and albrighton was amazing, joe hart made 5 world class saves and scholes played well. what did berbatov do??? he scored and that was all he did against a defence that was shocking

give it a rest you two... scholes could play those "immaculate" passes because he wasn''t pressed at all. as soon as you come up against a side that can shut down the midfield he''ll be as useful as an ice machine in iceland. muppets.

As much as i would love it to be true, the statement that Paul Scholes made more passes last night than the entire England team in South Africa is rubbish. Scholes made 104 passes last night. England made 1578 over the 4 games in SA. Though 98% of England passes were probably the wrong ones. Or in Steven Gerrards case, passes aimed down a team mates throat.

Joe Hart''s whole performance was exceptional!! Not just one or two of his saves! He was the main reason City got a point out of the game. He was teriffic throughout the whole match, not just bits of it!

Scholes and Giggs, its an honour to watch them in action.

Graham Deakin says...

Oh how the City bashing can you say that Hart was merely solid whilst Scholes performed a masterclass?? Both did what was expected of them...their job. The hyperbole is anything in red that can pass a ball!! Sky sports really need to remove their rose tinted spectacles and give us all a break from Man U... To say Drogbas hat trick was against a team that wasn''t taxing is idiotic as Scholes also played against a team that were equally non taxing and that doesn''t get taken into account....Sky, you are hypocrites.

Long Live King Scholes... Zidane once quoted "he is the most intelligent player he has ever seen..." Genius & slightly bonkers...but breath-taking to watch

Dwayne Edwards (Manchester United fan) says...

Scholsey the Magican! ! ! what more can you say, I really do believe he is the best English playmaker ever, bar none! Amazing what he can do with that ball at his feet, just hope we are able to see him do this for a lttle longer than I expect! COME ON UNITED! 19 league titles here we come!
