Paul Scholes is the New 'Sheed

Move over Rasheed Wallace there is a new bad boy in town, Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes. So far this year he has been shown three red cards. The first came during a preseason Tournament in Amsterdam, then he was shown another when he tried to take off Liverpool Midfielder Xabi Alonso's head earlier in the season, and last and not least he was sent off for his second yellow card in the Champions League game against Italian side Roma.

Throughout his long United career, Scholes has been no stranger to being sent off for bad tackles. So far this season Scholes has received nine yellow cards and two red cards. To make the comparison complete Scholes is the only English player to be sent off during an international at Wembley.
