The lockdown has obviously affected him.
Comes across as needy & quite bitter.

Always looked an outstanding player to me and Giggs was never sent off in his 24-season playing career for Manchester United, shame his off the field antics tarnished his reputation.

Well Im sure Curtis would like to have the same amount of medals to show his grandkids.

Not immune to periods of mediocrity, poor form, but on the whole outstanding footballer, and it should be noted that he wasnt out of place when he moved into the middle of the park in later years.

Giggs has to be one of the most decorated players in English club football history...

13x Premier League
4x FA Cup
3x League Cup
9x Charity / Community Shield
2x Champions League
1x European Super Cup
1x Intercontinental Cup
1x World Club Cup

34 titles, plus a raft of individual honours to boot. It's hard to respect Ryan Giggs the person for what he did to his brother, and of course his own wife (not that I claim to know all of the details of his private life behind the scenes), however as a footballer it's difficult to argue that you can achieve all that over such a lengthy career without being a little bit special.

Quoted from Madeleymariner
Couldn't cross a ball while running for toffee.


All but forgotten now. In his early years I think that was a criticism that was made of him. Great runner with the ball but final pass dodgy.

You just wonder, if he had been a right footed player, would he have had the same career successes?

Disagree.  Has he confused Giggs with Wes Brown or John O'Shea?!?!

This is like that when Keane, in that Vieira;Keane ITV programme slagged off Gary Neville, just came across as bitter.

Strange how the article doesn't mention that Woodhouse played for us. Meh.
