Well; Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern can only suggest a trip to Specsavers for former Red Devils youth team coach Eric Harrison, who back in 2011, claimed Tom Cleverley to be the best homegrown United midfielder since Paul Scholes, and we cannot blame them!
As one of our regulars notes Paul Scholes was not only one of the best players in United’s history but he is one of the best players of all-time, period.
To compare a player like Cleverley to Scholes is not only wrong; it should be a criminal offence according to our regulars!
Whilst our landlord simply has to agree, we also think the YouTube clip is quite funny – and cannot blame Aston Villa fans for holding their heads in their hands when facing the prospect of having the midfielder on their books for the foreseeable future!
Have a look at the ludicrous claim for yourselves below.
