Not that Lampard is a bad player, but Scholes made the engine room of the England side tick. Scholey should have played CM all the way up to 2010, what a joke he was played on the wings. Not Gerrard, Gerrard backup, Maybe start Lamps over Gerrard as well. Is this a 7 minute video of Paul Scholes giving the ball away? The most overrated player in the modern game. Still can’t believe we lost this game. Ridiculous. So many legends in there I think scholes evolved his game. People talk about man utd demise but the reality is we haven’t replaced scholes as well as SAF. Fellaini has been a bad buy so far. Look at the way the french players double team on scholes all the time. They always ensure to close him down quick when he is receiving the ball. Also, they stand off when he has the ball. That shows alot of respect, because if u are committed, then scholes can make u look like an idiot with a simple pass. Look at how zizou and viera and makalele respected scholesy when he is in possession. Cant get close to him.. Gerrard probably respected scholesy too much in games as well, he needed to step up and want the ball, but everyone was happy just to give him the ball.. Gerrard and Lampard at their club peak both had the midfield built around them and effectively giving them license to roam. This played to their attacking strengths and made up for their weakness in being unable to control games like Scholesy could. Take Scholes out of this midfield, and you have 2 headless chickens and a team starved of creativity aka World Cup 2006. makes me laugh how these guys earn millions and everyone wants to be them. People watch them on TV every week saying how good they are. and they fail to notice that eveything the top players are built on are pass and move. however when you play on sunday no one wants to pass they wanted to do 50 yard through balls, shoot from everywhere and dribble it everytime. makes me laugh how these people then say how good are players like scholes. how about they get played millions so maybe just try an play a little like them. The problem at the time was the media were making a big deal about Scholes not scoring for 3 years for England. This, along with Lampards rise into a regular goal scorer put unnecessary pressure on Scholes. In a way he was a victim of his own success at regular goal scoring early in his career, when the media and apparently Sven failed to recognise his ability at keeping the team playing well as they just saw him as a goal scoring midfielder. To be fair to Gerrard under Rodgers he is beginning to learn how to dictate the play and control games. He’s lost his attacking instinct but actually improved intelligence. It’s a shame Scholes didn’t play next to him at a World Cup finals. 2002 may have been very different against Brazil if he had been there and Becks was fit. Beckham Scholes Gerrard Lampard Rooney Owen What a front 6! Scholes was the most important player out of all of them as he made them all tick. Lampard and Gerrard great players in their own right but unfortunately need the right midfield around them. its funny all lamphard and jizzard wanna do is bolt into box like a horse brainless And as retarded as I am, you claim. There was absolutely NO NEED to bring Gazza’s name into this. I know you will mean no harm but BAH, its bad enough Scholes’s tribute, theres bunch of idiots with lame ass comments and now, in this. Did they win ? up to where did they go in that competition We have a team now kinda like this where we have a right winger and three centre midfielders. The guy on the left literally just plays his way into the middle and without the ball we just press as normal with him as a left midfielder. Yeah I know what your saying. Scholes looked class in this game and then got taken off, crazy. Ha zidane had no chance! Zidane is one of a kind just like Scholes is. Clowns who are still having the mindset that Jack Wilshere is a better and superior upgrade of Scholes should get sodomized real hard. No English player even as of now has the vision, ability to hold on to the ball without panicking under pressure or can produce the type of passes like Scholes. Gerrard+Lampard is not even half of Scholes’s overall ability. Only ABUs wank and get wet on Lampard, Gerrard, Wilshere, and yes even Cleverley too. No Scholes played Central Midfield with Gerrard & Lampard was playing Left Wing! I watched this game live. Lampard was superb in this game like Scholes and Beckham.stop with your usual crap Zinade was pissed that whole game because scholes was dominating the midfield… i was disgusted when he took him off.. cause said zizou hell yeah.. ginga man is off.. ima about to dominate their ass… soon england lost possession and ultimately lost that game… stupid Erickson… this is the main reason scholes retired from english football.. WOW. i cant believe they didnt win this tournament… england 1-0 up. controlling the game. decide to take off scholes. england lose 2-1 because a so called midfielder does what scholes would never do…he gave the ball away. When was the last time England kept the ball with confidence like this? When ever I watch them against a top team like Italy/Germany they panic and throw the ball away. Comments are closed.
