See this is how you know it’s bollocks because I’ve heard the same story but it’s the tree Gary Neville was having a piss against from 200 yards away. 
 

 

I really hope I start something here...

lol

 

O.K, lets put this to bed once and for all. Here's a compilation of genuine quotes from the best players in the world past and present.

 

And the 200 yard pass thing came from this PaddyPower ad I think. Not quite 200 yards but still pretty impressive.

 

 

Edit: just seen Finners post something similar as I was busy copying and pasting :D

I absolutely 100% don't doubt there's a lot of made up quotes, urban myths, misquotes, fuzzy memories and bullshit claims churning up all sorts of nostalgia and revisionism in football. Agree with that definitely. 

 

But the claim that Scholes was universally regarded as one of the best of his generation by his peers is indisputable.

Scholes was fantastic but he couldn't tackle for toffee. 9/10 challenges ended up in a yellow card.

Iniesta even named his son after him. 

 

Like, feel free to dislike the guy, you're allowed your opinion fair play but Scholes was very highly regarded by fellow professionals across Europe. 

I’m not sure if you’re serious

paul scholes was slightly above average. that’s about it. wouldn’t even get in our squad. can’t believe people think he is one of the best midfielders of all time.

Wrong thread?

 

I liked True Blood. The ginger vampire is miles fitter than Anna Paquin though. No not Paul Scholes...

It peeded me off, so thought it would fit into this thread. 

 

I think the ginger one is Jessica. My favourites (for obvious reasons) were dawn, amy and daphne. All waitresses at merlottes.

Fair play, if its a bit of a text written on a picture on the internet then it must be genuine.

 

Like how Mahatma Gandhi once advised that one should never back the early kick off.

He was top class and I don’t doubt that the top players rated him highly but come on. As for Iniesta naming his son after him lol

I appreciate the Iniesta's son bit could absolutely full well be rubbish and I may well have just bitten there but I've sat and watched interviews with my own two eyes of Xavi and others from Barcelona's academy talk about how they looked up to him and how he was discussed at La Masia. 

 

There's articles from credible newspapers and UEFA themselves I've just posted above quoting interviews from Xavi and others claiming he was someone they aspired to emulate for his range of passing, reading of space and retention of the ball. 

 

For what it's worth, Xavi goes on to revere Gascoigne, Barnes and other English midfielders as well and was extremely vocal about being a big fan of English football growing up.

If you had to name a Premier League XI since it began in 1992, Scholes would not make the squad, let alone the starting X1. In terms of ability Xabi Alonso was far superior in every aspect of his game.

Being told off for something you 'did' in someone else's dream.

 

Firstly it didn't happen and secondly that shit is a product of your imagination, not mine.  Tell yourself off.

Scholes and Xabi Alonso were two different types of midfielder though.

 

Anyway, everyone's midfield would probably involve trying to put Gerrard and Lampard together.

I'm not that old and I'm certainly not miserable and I understand you wanting to spend time with your kids. However, particularly during the busy hectic festive shopping period, parents should take a look around at the lengthy queues at the checkouts and say "not today" when their offspring are already whinging. 

Or you can go shopping on quieter times 🧐
