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.
