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 2000/2010’s.

Or the manager who had to manage all 3?

He was the only one who had to make a choice between them. Regardless as I said, there’s little between the 3 of them. And a case could be made for either. As said personally I’d have Gerrard out in front. But I support Liverpool so prob saw more of him than Scholes. So accept I may have a bias. But this claim

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
Stevie and Frank put together couldnt lace his boots or Keanes ffs.

Is pure nonsense.

Gerard was a serial choker. Never did it on the big stage. When the pressure came on he slipped. Not a big game player. A fraud.

The argument is always nonsense because people either hate Scholes or Gerrard. I wouldn't put a lot between them, the problem for England that they only could play one in a 442. Lampard then had a habit of playing in the same spaces as Rooney so that didn't work either. Gerrard was used to being the big player in the Liverpool team but played best with Alonso, so he didn't always adapt well to the English set up when he was asked to play deeper. Lampard's Chelsea was perfectly set up for him with Drogba in front and 2 defensive midfielders behind him. Scholes was a great player in a great team at United but played best when complimented with Keane and then later Carrick and Hargreaves (that 08 team was probably the peak for him and United). The fact he didn't play as many away games in Europe was more Ferguson going conservative with Keane and Butt.
