Paul Scholes Great Five Strikes [Video]

The Ginger Wizard

The Ginger Wizard

He scores goals galore,
He scores goals,
He score goals galore,
He scores goals,
He scores goals galore,
He scores goals,
Paul Scholes,
He scores goals.

As the song states, Paul Scholes scores goals. In his 615 apperances for Manchester United, the ginger haired wizard has hit the back of the net 144 times, mainly from midfield.

Yesterday the legend turned 35 so in a belated celebration of his career we will countdown Paul Scholes’ top goals:

5. vs Middlesbrough (April 2000). A thunderbolt that probably would still be going if not for the net

4. vs Bradford (March 2000). Just over a month later Scholes again light up the pitch with a thunderous volley directly from a David Beckham corner.

3. vs Panathinaikos (November 2000). United played keep ball, stringing together 32 passes before Scholes delicately chipped the ball over the straded Panathinaikos keeper.

2. vs Aston Villa (Dec 2006). Scholes again showed why he is considered as one of the finest strikers of a ball with a stunning vintage goal, a thunderous volley from a cleared corner.

and finally although this goal may not have been as spectacular as some on the list, its importance ranks far beyond all. In 1999 Paul Scholes was booked in the CL semi final second leg against Juventus and as a result missed the Champions League final, so it was only fitting the next time United to the final, it would be Scholes who got them there with this wonderful strike against Barcelona

vs Barcelona (April 2008)

His goal output may have decreased as he has got older but one thing that remains the same is the absolute quality of the legend that is Paul Scholes.
