Alan Hansen once famously (infamously) remarked “You can't win anything with
kidsâ€. But how those ‘kids' proved him wrong. But now that these ‘kids' have all
grown up - the question now is “Can you win anything with old players ?â€.

But now only 3 of ‘Fergies Fledglings' are left, Giggs, Neville and Scholes. But still
Fergie shows enduring faith in them by selecting them for yesterdays rather
important game ! Neville of course missed out because of injury but I feel
confident he too would have been chosen.

Both Scholes and Giggs had ‘Indian Summers' to their careers last season with
some inspired performances which had them short listed for the player of the
year award !

Scholes has just returned from injury - played a great game ‘v' Portsmouth
(powered more by adrenalin than fitness I think) but since then he has been off
the pace.

Giggs is still a class player and no doubt he will go on to beat Sir Bobbies record.
But for me he is only half the player he was last year. The years have caught up
to him and to use him as a support striker is madness - he is past it for this.
Yesterday confirms this.

Neville's injury has gone on and on and on and…….well he is still injured after 12
months. Will he ever get back ? I wont be holding my breath.

Just how much do the ‘old timers' have left in them ?

Time to hang up the boots maybe - and let the memories begin !
