He doesn't really deserve his own thread, but anyway: ha ha ha. Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has left his role as Oldham Athletic manager after just 31 days. The 44-year-old took over on 11 February and was in charge for just seven games, winning only one. Scholes said in a statement that he had taken the decision with "great regret". "It unfortunately became clear that I would not be able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role," he continued. Scholes took over with the Latics 14th in the table, nine points off the play-offs, and leaves with them in the same position. He began his reign with a 4-1 win over Yeovil Town, but three draws and two defeats followed prior to his final match, a 2-0 defeat by league leaders Lincoln City on Tuesday. "I hoped to at the very least, see out my initial term of 18 months as the manager of a club I've supported all my life," he said. "The fans, players, my friends and family all knew how proud and excited I was to take this role. "I wish the fans, the players and the staff - who have been tremendous - all the best for the rest of the season and will continue to watch and support the club as a fan."
