who is better paul scholes or steven gerrard?

i am sure man united fans will say scholes and liverpool fans will say gerrard

so if you say steven gerrard you better have a pretty good reason because i think scholes is by the far the better player. you cant judge him on tackles because it wasnt his job to tackle like it wasnt gerrards job to get drunk and punch a guy in the face and become cell mates with joey barton

    So being able to pass 60 yards is better than being able to keep the ball and see any pass he wants to? Really?

    Scholes is in a different league, the reason England dont do well in tournements is because they settle for players like Gerrard, they need proper midfielders who can pass the ball, it is a shame someone like Scholes retired from international football so early.

    Scholes has been a legend for United, he has been there all his life and is one of their best ever players.

    Scholes and Gerrard play the same game. Although Scholes was past his best, Gerrard is still slightly in his prime. Scholes prime vs Gerrard prime I would go with Scholes because of what he has won at United

    Zidane said that stevie Gerrard was one of the best midfielders of all time.. Although Scholes has won more titles than him, gerrard will always be slightly better.. Passing to perfection, shooting to perfection.. He can defend amazingly, tackle( Scholes's tackles always end up with a red card), have more assists and score much more goals.. He can play everywhere, he played as right back, central mid, winger and even striker.. He is quicker than scholes, have a better heading accuracy and can dribble!! Leadership skills goes to stevie too!!

    In what way can scholes be better than Gerrard??

    You Liverpool fans need an education. Scholes in his prime sh@t on Gerrard from a great height. And I am not being biased - ask Zidane, ask Davids, ask Ronaldo (Brazilian one), and Ronaldinho, ask Henry, ask GERRARD HIMSELF.

    Scholes was a player who NEVER lost the ball. Hit 60 yard passes and landed them on a penny piece, controlled the tempo of the game and scored goals galore.

    Seriously, Gerrard is great. But nowhere, no where, NOWHERE near Paul Scholes.

    Gerrard as he CAN TACKLE, pass from 60 yards to prefection and has a better shot than Scholes. And Gerrard isn't so much red hotted like Scholes, he (Scholes) just goes out to break peoples legs when he is doing sh*t but Gerrard he just never gives up and tries his best..basically he has more determination to win. And also he more versatile than that ginger sod.

    Paul Scholes has performed better for club and country. In his prime he was definitely better than Steven Gerrard. All Gerrard could do was shoot better.

    its Steven Gerrard of Liverpool`because of his technical free kick and long range shot.
