Reg your Keane comment yes we learned to win without him but as clearly everyone else has said Keane would be first all day long in their team.

His drive and will to win were of no other! Could scholes do what Keane done not a hope and do you ever hear a bad word.

Reg the retirement issue Keane did not get a chance to we all know why as we enjoy our prawns.

I remember an aging Keane battle a prime viera in a cup game when Keane chased Viera up the wing with his hands flapping showing the keeper his hands where not on the player before making a brilliant tackle on Viera to gain possession

Scholes tried it and almost took the players legs off.

Lets just settle on Scholes for CAM and Keane on CDM because this is like saying vidic was beeter than van persie.

Or alternatively you could just accept that Scholes was a better football player. Lol.

Keane was a great player in that era. However, he would be sent off every other week in today's game. He himself has admitted that during commentary. Scholes could grace the game in any era. He was the most talented British player of his generation.

Keane may well be your favourite, as he is for many people. But that doesn't make him a better player than Scholes.

Also Scholes never held the club to ransom, in fact he told them he had no interest in leaving unless the club wanted him gone. Scholes also didn't leave the club under a cloud.

I would go as far and say Scholes was the best player the club had during Sir Alex's time at the club.

Oh my god, a world class player entering the final year of his contract wanted to get the highest possible wage. I’ll get the pitch forks and torches ready.

When people need to throw this type of stuff into debates, it has nothing to do with football.

I love them both but I think Keane’s reputation was enhanced by a few spectacular events. Juve away, the Viera battles. He was a leader, he took no prisoners, and he set insanely high standards. However, the injuries took their toll and I don’t they no he stayed at his peak long enough. Great warrior and leader, but if I was looking at the players who made the most impact st Ynited in SAF! s reign, I can think of a few others ahead of him.

Ajh your on the sauce again if you can think of a few better players than Keane under the alex era.
He was the driving force behind the team even fergie said he left him in charge of the dressing room,
I read there recently pique said his phone went off in the dressing room and he nearly shot himself cause Keane went off his head.
Ronaldo sees him at a game doing commentary and he goes straight over to Keane.
Ronaldo said he learnt from Keane work rate.
Give 100% or jog on.

Leahy, as I said, he set incredibly high standards and was the leader, if we’re judging him against that criteria then there are none better. I was talking about him as a player, great as he was we have been blessed with many great players in the last 20 years.

Comparing keane and scholes as players is impossible as they were so different.
As characters and their personalities were just as different.
However they did share certain personality traits. Will to winn work ethic high standards.
Both were great in their own way.
A fantastic partnership which was complimented by having lots of great players around them a fact bourne out by the team wining the cl final in 99 without either of them.
Both made a huge impact and a significant contribution to the teams success.
Technically scholes was fantastic keane had an aura about him that was just fearsome. Both consistently delivered for a sustained period both would be in my 11 out of fergies entire generation.

None better than Keane. But I suppose it's whether you like Blondes vs Brunettes, or Boobies vs Butty, or parking the bus vs sacking the bus driver.

Put it this way, if I walked into a changing room with Keane in it I would up my game on the pitch and would push myself to the limit. That reason alone is why he is the best, he enabled others to thrive and thrived himself. Leader and seriously underestimated by most, would be worth £250m in this day and age (if allowed to play) .

That was some midfield we had. Beckham in husband pomp, Keane, Scoles and Giggs.

09 Jun 2018 16:30:37
Keane a great captain. Never afraid to call his team mates out in public or in the press. Never afraid to call out the supporters in the press either or the club management. A great desire to win vindictive and immature at times a really bad loser. A win at all costs type of player some called him a bully. Its amazing he shares so many traits with our current manager.

09 Jun 2018 16:31:53
A great midfield butt was a fantastic cover man too AJH.

09 Jun 2018 16:40:23
Ajh we didn't know how lucky we were to watch them every week.

09 Jun 2018 17:03:33
Both unbelievable football players but Scholes nicks it for me. Superb close control and skill under pressure. Not much he couldn't do with the ball at his feet and just great to watch.

09 Jun 2018 17:36:32
Scholes for me, just.

09 Jun 2018 19:13:06
Ajh Leahy is was a great team but there was a good vibe around the place at the time . Happy days.

09 Jun 2018 19:24:44
I remember watching sky sports with Keane saying how much he loved Scholes a player., he talked about his passing his control his shooting but more than anything because he was nasty. Jeff shreeves went all politically correct and said no you mean he's aggressive. Keane went no he's nasty. Never forget that. Anyway both amazing but very different. Scholes for me though.

09 Jun 2018 23:04:05
The greatest lie ever told was by Scholes, people believed he couldn't tackle and he got away with murder. Half the time he knew exactly what he was doing 😂.

10 Jun 2018 02:28:50
That proves Keane wins hands down. :

Technically gifted don't win you games guys the desire and hunger do. as i have said

Scholes great at CAM and Keane CDM so the only real comparison is saying

Matic or Keane.

10 Jun 2018 03:11:16
Scholes for me. He's the player I've enjoyed watching the most out of any football ever (I'm 43). Just a joy to see on the pitch. He was like a chess player because he always knew where he was going to pass about 2 passes before he received the ball. He didn't even need to look where he was passing it; first time - ping. Amazing! I've never seen any other player play like this. It was off the hook.

In fact, here's a challenge. Can anyone name another player who could do this like Scholes?

Xavi and pirlo as well. Privilege to have watched all 4 of them over the years. Not much around these days to compare.

10 Jun 2018 16:58:06
One of my favourite moments as a supporter, was taking my young lad to OT, and telling him, just watch Scholes, son. You'll never see another player as good in your life. And he was nearly 50 by then.
