Paul Scholes – Quality personified

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Paul Scholes the shy hero
Zidane’s “toughest opponent”
“Undoubtedly the greatest of his generation”
That vital midfield component

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Unassumingly loyal one club man
Ten league titles on the run
Vision, touch, wild lunges, red cards
Scoring mind boggling goals for fun

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Said Rio, “a dictator of the game”
“Best in the Prem,” exclaimed Henry
“Quality in abundance” described Lippi
“He has it all,” waxed Xavi

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Like Hoddle and the gifted club
Fulcrum for the English?
Little faith to build round the dynamo
So different had Paul been Spanish

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Number 7
