You don't stay in the engine room of a top team for 12/13 years by being good. Fantastic player was Scholes, a decent shout for best English player in the Premier League era.

Would agree with that. Scholes was unreal in his prime. HIs tackling on the other hand.....

He was a nasty little bugger. The tackling was a big laugh in the game but some were downright nasty. Illiterate so and so also, talks like hes got a moutful of marbles

Edit - walked out on his country too just because he couldnt get his favourite position. Wasnt good enough to dislodge stevie or frank. Took lessons from Keane on that one id say

He was a class act. Him, Gerrard, Beckham and Lampard were some midfield to try and squeeze together. I would have Gerrard and Scholes slightly ahead of Lampard and Beckham.

But yes Scholes tackling will be remembered every bit as much as his skill. Horrific tackler.

Yeah worked out well didnít itÖ. Other two were world class and Iíd have taken either at United but Scholes was on another planet.

Stevie and Frank were great when the right players played beside them. The right players were never English though. (They were good otherwise but not great).

Are you really going to pursue that line you were going down yesterday that all the English players you named were only good cause they had a good foreign lad beside them  ;D

If you want an honest opinion on who the best English midfielder was of that generation ask Zidane, Xavi or Inesta, players who dominated European club midfield through the 2000/2010ís.
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

Couldnít lace Lampards boots let alone Gerrards. And thatís only two players off the top of my head. Not even close  ;D

This is why itís a pointless argument. Iíd have Gerrard slightly ahead of Scholes. Then Lampard.
The honest truth is that there was little between them and you could make an arguement for either of the 3.
