Scholesy leaves Oldham

Recommended Posts

Well that was a bit of a waste of time. I'm not really sure why these millionaire ex pros think they might want to muck in the lower leagues but it's not as easy as criticising in a studio.

Living in Manchester I know that club has been a shambles for a fair while. You can't fault him for giving it a go but like Sol Campbell when he signed for Notts County I feel he was expecting more than he got and the reality must have kicked in. 

We don't know what went on behind the scenes but I suspect it was a culture shock and he realised it was going to be impossible to get what he wanted out of the players he had.

I think it's funny when ex players turn to management and fail. They think just because they played at the top level, they will be great as a manager. Surely being a manager you need to have good management skills and good people skills. Most footballers don't have these skills.

Yes I agree with this, Scholes has always had issues with dealing with the media in the past and that's why I was surprised when he became a football pundit. He doesn't really have the personality needed to be a manager of a football club some people need to be guided and he's one of those characters.
