36 years young today. The model professional. Our ginger prince.
I share a little in common with Scholesy, we are both asthmatics (although mine is only slightly) and we both had Osgood Schlatter’s Disease (a knee condition that affects young athletes) when we were younger. When I used to play the game, before injury halted me; people remarked how I was like Scholes but I could tackle! 😉
So you see for me, even though I stopped playing years ago it’s been quite nice to play out my football missed years through Mr Scholes. Not a bad footballer to follow is he?
Happy Birthday Paul.
P.S. A 19th League title would be a great birthday gift for me next year (hint hint!)
