Paul Scholes: Adapta-Dull

August 19, 2010

“For the past week Paul Scholes has deservedly had his name in lights, and you imagine he’s spent most of the time squinting. Compliments sit as cosy as crabs in the pants of the Manchester United midfielder, or so we are led to imply from his meek, modest, once in a fuchsia moon post-match interviews. Every so often a marvellous performance, like that in the 3-0 win over Newcastle last night, demands his interrogation by the media, and he proves to be consistently coy.” (Spotters Badge)
