    I’m being told it is because the owner was trying to interfere in team matters (he has history for this).

    You can't tell me scholes wouldn't have known what the owner was like before he went there.

    Never happy with Scholes since he decided to give up playing for England.
    He seems a grumpy sod.

    He’s actually a decent humble chap.
    Kept his feet firmly on the ground when Giggs and Beckham were trying to be poster boys.

    If he couldn't do a bit of googling to find articles like that linked above (and that's ignoring the industry **** chat that is much more open), then he deserves to have to have gone into a terrible job.

    Maybe Scholes knew what the owner was like and told him that he wouldn't tolerate any interference, hence quit at the first sign of any.

    Unhateable
    I don’t blame him.
    Being chucked on the left wing to fit two far inferior players in who couldn’t perform in a 2?

    Can I have a list of footballers from the last 30 years who people on Molineux Mix don’t hate/dislike?

    Shouldn’t be very long.

    I’m heard he’s anything but, from people I work with who’ve done charity work with him.

    Seems a good bloke to me as well, not to mention being the best English footballer for 30 years.

    Interfering chairman or not he ducked out early without trying to resolve

    Hardly new at Oldham with chairman so he knew to degree what to expect

    Debatable but a good point. Should have said last 22 years.

    Indeed mate
    I’ll give an example.
    Was a regular in a branch of the banking group I work for, the manager took him aside and tried to make things a little easier for him in terms of standing and queuing. This would be in his earlier days.

    Long story short he provided a load of signed material from the club which they were able to auction off for charity. He wasn’t asked to but did it as he was grateful for the help.


    In terms of talent, only Gazza could hold a candle to him.

    I’d say he was more consistent for sure.

    Always seemed to me to be a tell it as it kinda guy when doing punditry and I can't fault them kind. Cracking footballer absolute Rolls Royce of a midfielder made everything look effortless. Wasted by England played in wide areas when we were crying out for creativity in the middle of the park.

    I was a bit late for Gazza, but the way people talked about about him i assumed he was much better than Scholes?

    Gazza could be brilliant, coming up with the unusual or unexpected, but was also erratic as hell... Scholes was less flashy but was rock-solid consistent (and never learnt to tackle properly lol)...

    In terms of individual tricks and flicks Gazza takes it. In terms of team impact and consistency it's Scholes by a country mile.

    Gascoigne at his peak was an incredible footballer. He did what hardly any midfielders do any more and run at people, commit them and go past them. He did it without being particularly quick either, had a way of gettting his arms up to protect himself. He could finish, pass long and short, brilliant player.
    He had huge issues and picked up bad, self inflicted injuries (91 cup final he went onto the pitch in a wild state) and burnt out quickly.
    He played against us for Burnley at turf moor in 2002 and it was sad to see how far he’d dropped in ability.

    He gets talked about more than Scholes due to his personality and what’s gone on in his life. He was box office where Scholes was a quiet ginger bloke.

    The opinions of Zidane, Pirlo and Iniesta tell you everything you need to know about Scholes. Amazing player.

    Exactly. Measure them both as you would boxers during a fight and do that for their careers.

    Theres a few 10/8 rounds for Gazza as when he fancied it he was / could be unplayable. He was a genius on the pitch.
    Scholes is the guy who easily keeps his level at a higher level, great going forward, great pinging a long ball and great defensively. His tackling though was usually where he'd fall down.

    All in all I think if a top club had enough money to spend on either player, and could only sign one of the two, Scholes would now (using hindsight) get the contract.

    He could glide past players, the absolute complete midfielder.
