    I seriously can't believe they'll be no conflict of interest if Salford come up and face Oldham in the league at some point. The FA says he can be an owner "for investment purposes only" but the only way you are making money out of Salford is to get them up the leagues and actually get a crowd through the door - especially when you're paying players £4k a week. To do this the team he owns will have to overcome the team he manages.
    Then there is money, will he have to set up a separate fund to prove any money he invests in Salford hasn't come from money paid to him by Oldham?

    Imagine Salford are in a play off spot but need a win to guarantee it on the final day. By coincidence they are playing Oldham who are midtable, with neither a chance of being promoted or relegated. You can’t tell me Scholes isn’t going to be tempted to stick out a weekend side, or even put a side that goes all out attack which he knows will be picked off on the counter.

    There’s a conflict of interest if Salford are promoted. He should either have to sell his Salford shares or stop being Oldham manager if they end up in the same league.

    Paul Scholes: Oldham Athletic name ex-Man Utd midfielder as manager

    Paul Scholes: Oldham Athletic name ex-Man Utd midfielder as manager

    He's never come across as the sort who could make it as a manager but that might be just because he's kept his personal life very private meaning we don't see much of him (unlike other ex players). Will be interesting to see how he does and how quickly we see one of those 'arrive 60 seconds too late' sliding tackles from his players that he was so good at

    Good start for Scholes. 1-0 up, and by the sounds of it, creating plenty of chances.

    Typical new manager bounce.

    Is Scholes the greatest manager of all time? Zidane said so in an uncorroborated interview, so I think he must be. He was cruelly ignored by Rangers and Derby at his managerial peak.

    Must be all those late goals kept giving that have got him already ..

    On a serious note does sound like he has fallen out with the chairman and wouldn't be the first recent Oldham manager to do that.

    Didn't realise he did the same thing with you.

    Must be something to do with cities.

    Sounds it haha.

    Back on topic, suppose this was never going to end well really, as Oldham are known to have very dodgy owners

    Boyhood fan going back to his favourite team never seems to end well.

    He rejected the job 3 times previously so much have had doubts anyway.
