Legend! Plain and Simple!

...but simply hasn't got the quality to start for us anymore. Maybe it was an off season, and he'll regain form next season, but i can't see that happening to be honest.

Giggs is past it, main assets were running, dribbling and skinning the shizer outta players
hes lost all of that ability, leaving him with his understanding of the game and vision as his only other attributes

Thats true, he has lost it. Hope he is used more sparingly next season as he can still do a job comin on as an impact player.
