Maybe it’s better that Paul Scholes kept his words to himself because he made himself look rather silly tonight with his analysis on Sky Sports after his Manchester United team were ripped to shreds by Manchester City.
Unbelievably, instead of criticizing Manchester United for the weaknesses this season, Scholes criticized Arsenal’s players for going missing and playing with no discipline (this coming from the Ginger Prince who was infamous for his poor tackling that often resulted in yellow or red cards).
Scholes also remarked that “It’s Arsenal fans that I feel sorry for. They seem to get them same thing every year.” Scholes added that Arsenal are a million miles away from winning the league.
The Ginger Ninja also criticized Jack Wilshere and said that his development has been poor.
Scholes also offered some analysis regarding David Moyes, and defended the United manager:
Maybe it’s time for Scholesy to learn a thing or two from Gary Neville and be more unbiased and analytical with his viewpoints instead of just singing from the United hymn sheet. Maybe that’s not surprising when Scholes himself is still employed as an ambassador for Manchester United Football Club.
When you listen to the above video, notice the number of times Scholesy says “We.” It’s poor form by Sky Sports to put someone like Scholes on the air when he’s obviously not going to say anything critical against United. They would have been better off getting someone more opinionated on the show who would speak his mind.
