Tribute to the quiet man..

United took on Aston Villa on at Villa Park on Saturday, it finished up 3-0 to the visitors, with Ronaldo bagging a well earned brace that earned him the man of the match award in my book. But it was Paul Scholes who scored the goal of the game and possibly of the season too.

Midway through the second half and with the Reds leading by a goal to nil, Scholes got onto the end of a high clearance. The 'ginger prince' was stationed roughly 25 yards from the Villa goal, he never took his eye off the ball as it rose high above the ground, as the ball came back down to earth the former England midfield star lashed it first time without allowing it to bounce, it crashed in off the crossbar - though the Villa keeper did manage to get a hand onto it but to no avail. It was goal worthy of winning any game and how fitting it came from the boot of the quiet man of football - in this day and age all too often we hear big-mouth managers and players spouting-off via the media, not our Scholesy who allows his boots to do his talking. Long may it continue.
