Later today, Manchester United will take on the New York Cosmos in a testimonial for Paul Scholes.
It is set to be an emotional evening for both the player and the fans as the man known to be the Ginger Prince, not unlike his manager for the past 20 years or so, is a one-off in football especially in the current era.
The press is ripe with reports of how United are trying to replace their creative genius but in truth, its impossible to replace him.
Replacing Paul on the pitch is one thing but doing so off it might be too much to expect from whoever gets the nod to attempt to fill his boots. The 'family man' kept such a low profile off the pitch that at times, you'd forget that he was part of the Manchester United first team.
That the likes of Del Pierro and Eric Cantona will grace the event only serves the function justice.
Thankfully for us fans, we get to keep him in our coaching set up so maybe all is not yet about PS18.
