Paul Scholes' Testamonial.

Paul Scholes played his last game for Manchester United in front of 75,000 fans last night.  Every seat in Old Trafford was filled, and Paul Scholes couldn't deny how much he is loved by the United fans.  None other than Pele and United legend Eric Cantona put a team together to face the reds, representing New York Cosmos in their first match in many years.  Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Dwight Yorke were wearing the Cosmos for this friendly, as well as Patrick Viera who was soundly booed every time he went near the ball.  Actually I was glad he played because it only added to the atmosphere.

In these games I always hope the player being honoured plays well, although Scholes almost always does. Therefore I shouldn't have been surprised when The Genius struck a thunderous 25 yard shot right into the top corner after 20 minutes of play! It was just perfect and Scholesey went on to spray long passes all over the pitch. He really could have bagged a hat-trick to be honest and when he was subbed after 75 minutes he really didn't look ready to come off. The youngsters came on and took over from a full strength starting line up, finishing the game off at 6-0 to the reds. Danny Welbeck, Anderson, Wayne Rooney (pen) and  Mame Diouf (x2) were the goalscorers.

We will never really replace a player such as Paul Scholes but he can rest assured he has given us some amazing memories and will never be forgotten.
