I agree that we shouldn't have to rely on Giggs and Scholes in the middle but, in the absence of any alternative, I think we should just be glad that they can step in when needed. The fact that Scholes is already proving to be so important just goes to show that we are/were short in that position.
I wanted Scholes to retire at the end of last season but only becasue SAF said he would sign experienced players when the likes of Nev, Giggs and Scholes retired. Since that statement turned out to be untrue, I'd rather keep Scholes than lose him and not replace him.
I think RedDevils has a point though. Transfers and tactics are inextricably linked as it doesn't matter how good your tactics are if you sign the wrong players to begin with.
You've been blaming Phelan for us not signing a decent CM, so i'd assume Quieroz had the same role in transfers... It's double standards, Phelan = bad because we haven't signed a CM, Quieroz = Good despite referring us to Bebe...
