giggs and scholes have been playing at a very high levels.
viera was sold because he was declining slightly.henry was sold had one productive season for barca and then vanished.
its not as black and white as how you put it.
if hes declining as a footballer then it would make sense for us to cash in on him.
good thing you mentioned Scholes, who I can definitely relate Stevie to.
He had a season full of injuries in 05-06 season which resulted him playing only 27 games in all competitions and scoring only 3 goals. The difference was Ferguson didn't turn his head thinking, well that gingerboy has been one of my best players for more than a decade now, been injured and off form for a couple of seasons, fuck the bastard let's get rid and buy Djembaz for him. He instead managed him more properly, with a slight change in his playing role, and now at 37, he is still the best CM they have. and of course still #WINNING and challenging for top prizes.
If Gerrard is declining, you don't sell him. You buy players with whom you can rotate him, so he won't get as much injuries. Gerrard is still a force and I'd much rather than Gerrard on the bench (just in case) than ANY 7 bench players we have had for 80% of this season combined. This Gerrard hate is so boring here, can't get any more disgraceful than that so called LFC fan who went to Inter forums when Rafa was there and said "fuck Gerrard, he's always been average without Rafa, half of LFC fans hate him and wanted him gone, he is a shit captain". Ungrateful c***, who ever it was
