The legendary Paul Scholes has some tough words for Arsenal. Some choice quotes:

"Jack Wilshere, he came on the scene and what a really top young player he looked but he's never really gone on," Scholes remarked. "Now he needs people like [Patrick] Vieira next to him to take him to the next level. Injuries haven't helped him, no, but his development from being 17 years of age ... he doesn't look any better a player now than he did when he was 17." [ouch]

"The [Mikel] Artetas, the [Santi] Cazorlas, the [Tomas] Rosickys and the [Mesut] Ozils if you like – I know he's not played for a bit – but it seems like they go on the pitch with no discipline, it's almost as if they’re saying: 'You four or five midfielders, you go out there, do what you want, try to score us a goal, do a few nice little one-twos, a bit of tippy-tappy football ... don't bother running back'. That's just my thoughts on it, I don't know what the manager does, it just seems that way to me. It just seems the midfield players have no discipline, there's no leader there, no Patrick Vieira, no [Tony] Adams, no Martin Keown.

Scholes: Wilshere is no better than when he was 17 - Goal.com


I agree completely, without a true destroyer like Patrick Vieira, Arsenal's attacking ways are constantly leaving themselves vulnerable. I was surprised to see such saucy remarks from the mild-mannered Scholes. But more please...

Scholes may well be right, but at least those comments divert attention from the woeful Man United midfield side.

Yup, but it's bizarre that the same team made it to the last 8 in the Champions League, heck they may not make the last 8 in the Premier League!

Really hoping Everton can make top four at the expense of the gooners.

Whatever happens this season - Liverpool have been the best team to watch. Great performance today.

It was great but sad to say Spurs were bloody awful.

It is really hotting up at the top.

I do hope that Liverpool win the title but it's so close.

Those two games at Anfield against City and Chelsea will never be bigger!

An honourable mention should be given to Southampton who annihilated a really crap Newcastle side.
