  • [21] Paul Scholes thinks England should play… the Liverpool way… which was the United way

    to Paddy Power

    “It would be refreshing for England to adopt Liverpool’s attacking mentality in Brazil. Really go for it. That means certainly four, and possibly five, Liverpool players in the England starting XI against Italy on June 14. South Africa in 2010 was so negative with boring draws. Nothing seemed to happen. England fans, and myself as an England fan, would rather 3-all games than dull, nil-nil draws. I’d love to see Roy be brave enough to play like Liverpool (or Man United teams of the past).

    Last season, I didn’t take notice of Liverpool as contenders until six or seven games to go of the Premier League. Only then I thought they genuinely had a chance of winning the title. Ultimately they fell short but the thing I admired most was the swagger of their play and how they terrorised opponents, which reminded me of United at their best. Defensively Liverpool were poor – conceding 50 goals – but they can be contenders again next year IF they can get two world-class centre halves and a left-back. I’m talking about players of the standard of Jaap Stam and Rio Ferdinand. That quality is difficult to find.”
