Outlandish Tales: Paul Scholes
Tale of the day? A toss up between the News of the World`s 'Toon in Meltdown` and the Sunday Sun`s frankly hilarious 'NUFC chase Paul Scholes` story. For sheer brass neck it has to be the latter. Steve Brown of the Sunday Sun has us, Stoke and Bolton in for the Man Utd man who had a nasty habit of annihilating us earlier in his career.
The paper looked to have written it`s copy last night prior to the Ashley story breaking as they still have talk of £20m war chests, Alan Shearer as boss, £5m for Jermaine Beckford and £70,000 a week wages for Scholes. Quite simply a shoddy display of story making by the regional rag.
