    Papers: Scholes would get Redknapp recall - Official Manchester United Website

    If he plans on hanging up his boots (again) at the end of the season, this would be the perfect way to sign off imo. If Harry handles the conversation with Scholes better than Capello's assistant did, then does anyone think he might have a rethink?

    If Scholes wants to stay on for another year at United, I'd want him to have the summer off. What's everyone's thoughts on this?

    I think he'd do it.

    Not sure another dismal England failure is the "perfect way to sign off" though.

    If called, he'd go i feel. already said he regretted not going to the WC. If its his last season with us, i wouldnt really mind. That said, a failure with England would be a bad way to sign off. Much rather he won the league with us and called it a day.

    No. No no no no no.

    Either

    A) he decides this is his last ever season. If this is the case I want his last ever appearance to be for us, preferably lifting the league title. Certainly not for a diva filled England bowing out in the group stage of the Euros.

    B) he decides to go on another season - in which case I'd be giving him a break from May til September ish. Don't worry about going on tour, don't worry about preseason friendlies, just keep fit at Carrington like he did for six months before coming out or retirement.

    I'd like him to go, be a nice send off, to sign out at a major tournament, plus it would highlight the insufficiency of Lampard and Gerrard. And let's be honest, he'd only help England's cause. It's not like he could get injured and we'd be missing him for next season.

    As an Englishman I'd love to see him at the Euros.

    Him being played in a central role, not to mention AFTER his renaissance as a centre midfielder post his box-to-box era, he might lift the whole bloody team. He's always been a handy player whenever he did play for England, but now he'd be the one they'd look to get the ball to, to dictate the games. I'd be genuinely excited to see a Scholes return in a major summer tournament... Though I'd say him playing for the team in the season is obviously untenable in every respect.

    If he wants to do it, I say great for him and good for me... I'll be seeing Scholesy play competitive football in the summer, why the Hell would I not take some joy in that :)

    The counter argument is, imagine if he goes and plays a role in winning the thing.

    I'd be so happy.

    I don't know why, but I just don't see him going. He's done well in my opinion to steer clear of England and the media circus that's surrounded them over the past few major tournaments. I don't see any reason for him to change now.

    If he did, I highly doubt he'd continue with us next season. If he didn't, there's a good chance he will.

    He's still more than good enough, and he'd certainly be appreciated far more than he ever was beforehand.

    If it was for Capello I'd be against it, as I would if it's for Pearce, but for Redknapp I'd probably be in favour. It's a godsend to be watching him playing football these days, I'll take anything I can get as long as it's for a manager that can use him properly.

    Can't see it, hates being away from his family, and if he wants another season at OT, he'll be wanting a nice long summer break.

    England at Euro 2012 are a busted flush, does he really wanna be part of that ?

    He already talked about Capello asking him. The only reason he didn't go was that he wasn't given enough time to make a decision. If Harry makes it a priority to get Scholes back into his team, Scholes would probably go...

    If players like Terry, Barry, Lampard, Bent and Downing are kept away from the starting 11, England have no worse a team than they've had in donkey's years. They won't win, no, but it's more than conceivable that they'd put on a good show and actually have some decent results.
