Pretty Football? What's The Point?

Pretty Football? What's The Point?

Manchester United`s Ex-Ginger Ninja, Paul Scholes has aimed a stinging jab at Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal saying "pretty football, what`s the point?"

Scholes took a big 'ol swing with his size 9s and aimed it directly into the head of a prone Arsenal Football Club by claiming there`s no point in pretty football if it does not garner results.

"On the domestic front, I expect United`s main challengers to be Chelsea and City. Arsenal, they just flatter to deceive. Said Scholes

"They may play the prettiest football, but it doesn`t always produce the results they need. It doesn`t irritate me when people say they`re the best footballing team, because while they are doing that, we are winning games."

"They do play the best football to watch at times, but what is the point of that, if you are not winning anything? Not only that, they are potentially going to lose their best players in Fabregas, Nasri and Clichy."

Whilst the first instinct might be to lash out at Scholes and tell him to put a sock in it, I`m willing to wager it`s a thought that`s popped into the head of many Arsenal fans in the last four months or so.

That said, he`s still a ****.

Man's a genius.

Ah so this is why he doesn't do interviews, he's thick and slow. Well it's cleared that mystery up if nothing else.

It may have been a while but pretty football did enable us to win a title at your ground didn't it ginger nut! Not to mention winning titles didn't stop your best player from packing his bags to join Real did it!

Scholes just proves my longstanding point that his nice guy gentlemanly image is a fake & he's actually just another typical classless Man United scumbag big mouth who loves to trash other clubs. But he can't help it, that's a requirement for Ferguson. Unfortunately, what he says is close to the truth given our consistent collapse in the last 4-5 yrs. But I always find it interesting how Man United players/fans/Ferguson are so bitter & resentful that Arsenal get any praise for playing attractive football. It's like no other club is allowed to get praise for their football. You'd think a club that wins so many trophies wouldn't be bothered by it. Of course they SAY they're not bothered by it but they're always mentioning it, always complaining about it, always being so defensive about it.

Spot on Jaelle, it clearly bothers them a little as all their praise seems to be begrudging.

Biggest *****er in football, but he's spot on.

Tenner says he sat next to Evra on the team bus, pair of moaning joyless flaps.

Scholes mentioned that Ferguson would never let United go 5 seasons without a major trophy but Fergie already has let that happen. The first 5 seasons of Ferguson at United were barren and many United fans were asking for his head. Wenger on the other hand had a terrific start as Arsenal manager but is now going through a lean patch though the extenuating circumstances of the stadium move need to be considered. Just saying that class is permanent. It was in Ferguson's case and is true in AW's case too if he goes back to his pragmatic ways in the initial five years..
