Subject: Jeppe Set For Start (Carling) Man United 1 Sep 1998 JESPER SET FOR START IN RESERVES Jesper Blomqvist is set to make his Manchester United debut in a reserve match against Aston Villa on Wednesday. The Swedish international winger's United career has been on hold since he arrived in a 4.4million move from Parma in the summer because of a niggling foot injury. Blomqvist is back in full training after resting the injury and now he is ready to make his United bow for Jimmy Ryan's second string in the Pontin's League game at Old Trafford. If Blomqvist comes through the match unscathed, he will probably play for the reserves again at Everton on Saturday in an attempt to build up his match fitness. The former AC Milan winger might then be in contention to play in United's next Premiership match against League leaders Charlton at Old Trafford on September 9. Manager Alex Ferguson, though, claims he will not rush the 24-year-old back, and the former IFK Gothenburg star may have to settle for a place on the bench.

Subject: United's Star Reserves (TeamTalk) Star-Studded Reserves ? United fans get their first chance to see new signing Jesper Blomqvist in a Red shirt tonight when he plays for the reserves against Aston Villa at Old Trafford, kick-off 7pm. The Swede has been sidelined after damaging a tendon in his foot and this will be his first competitive action since arriving from Parma. Raimond van der Gouw also makes his comeback after missing the start of the season with pneumonia. The Dutchman has been regular cover for Peter Schmeichel since joining United in 1996 and had six first team starts last season - he also double up as goalkeeping coach at the club. Dwight Yorke could start if he feels his match fitness is lacking after 10 days without a game. Jordi Cruyff and David May are also expected to play some part.

Subject: Toffees Won't Get Ole (MEN) Everton won't capture Ole SOLSKJAER STAYING PUT AT OLD TRAFFORD BY PAUL HINCE WALTER SMITH would be wasting his time with any attempt to prise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer away from Manchester United. For both Reds boss Alex Ferguson and Solskjaer himself are in total agreement on one point . . . the talented young Norwegian is staying put at Old Trafford. Everton manager Smith is reported to be considering a 6m offer for the baby-faced hit-man in the wake of United's surprising decision to accept a similar bid for Solksjaer from Spurs. That deal fell through when Solksjaer refused to even consider a move to White Hart Lane, insisting that his future lies at Old Trafford. And Ferguson welcomed that decision by saying: ``Ole is going nowhere. He is happy to stay and I am happy to keep him.'' Ferguson, meanwhile, was able to send his players away for an unexpected early-season holiday when Saturday's scheduled Premiership match against Chelsea had to be postponed. The FA's computer threw up the fixture between United and Chelsea for last Saturday before the Stamford Bridge club were told that they would be playing their Super Cup match against Real Madrid 24 hours earlier. ``Of course Chelsea could have elected to play us the following day,'' laughed Ferguson. ``But for some reason they declined. Actually I am not too disappointed that we have got this little break so early into the season.''

From: Neil Sharp Subject: Dennis Viollet Prints Today I received the two prints of the superb drawings that Paul so generously donated. The post only arrived as I was leaving the house, so I have only had a quick look at them, but let me tell anyone who is not sure - these are very, very good and well worth buying. The cause is obviously the most important consideration. Dennis and his family need our help, and I like many others would have bought them for that reason even if they looked like a 6 year old had drawn them. The fact is however, that these are truly excellent, which is really a massive bonus. I urge everyone on the two lists who have not already done so, to contact Paul or Sean and purchase these masterpieces. Remember, the proceeds are going to a true red in need.

Subject: ESL (ET) Super League players face exile from England teams Super League players face exile from England teams PLAYERS of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool will be banned from representing England at any level if their clubs join the proposed European Super League, the Football Association said yesterday, writes Henry Winter. This would mean England taking the field without footballers of the quality of David Beckham and Gary Neville, Tony Adams and David Seaman and Michael Owen and Paul Ince. It would rip the heart out of the England team. Of the 25 players in Glenn Hoddle's original squad for Saturday's international in Sweden, 12 will not be available to him in the future if the Super League goes ahead (while a further 11, like Robbie Fowler and Andy Cole, would also be denied him). If other English clubs sign on to the unsanctioned league, and Chelsea and Newcastle United have already been linked to it, then Hoddle would be hit by further losses, such as Graeme Le Saux and Alan Shearer. And it is not just England affected. Other national associations, either of their own volition (like the FA) or through FIFA decree, will refuse to select players from Super League clubs. Arsenal's presence in the unofficial league would lead to France losing Emmanuel Petit and Patrick Vieira, Holland being without Dennis Bergkamp and Marc Overmars while Argentina would have to ignore Nelson Vivas. There would be similar problems with other foreign internationals on the books of Anfield and Old Trafford. European Championships and World Cups would inevitably lose much of their gloss. The warning comes from the FA chairman, Keith Wiseman, whose executive committee met to discuss the issue yesterday. The Premier League chairmen convene tomorrow to debate the intentions of three of their members in what is sure to be a lively session. Lancaster Gate hope the threat of punishment, which would also include the clubs' expulsion from the Premiership, the FA Cup and the League Cup, may be enough to encourage the plotters to remain within the Premier League, the FA and UEFA. Keen to preserve the game's structure, Wiseman was particularly scathing about the European Super League concept. "The Media Partners' proposal has been given a credibility that I don't think should be attributed to it," he said. "They seem to have an assumption that they can play both official and unofficial football. I don't suppose there is anything remotely illegal in going off with 15 of your mates if you want to play outside the system. But you can't do that and play within the system. "The national associations, FIFA and UEFA still control very, very important areas of the game. We control all international football. It would be automatic that any league playing outside the remit of the national associations and UEFA would inevitably attract sanctions on its players and clubs. "The clubs and players wouldn't be allowed to play in any competitions within the official system. I don't see how players in unofficial football could play international football. The clubs have clearly not warned players what the implications are for their international careers." Wiseman hopes a compromise can be reached through a dialogue between the breakaway clubs and UEFA. "I have no reason to believe Manchester United and Arsenal have ever even asked UEFA for more money. A meeting could very easily have been called." He was sure UEFA would come up with some good ideas in terms of competition changes, such as merging the UEFA and Cup-winners' cups, but their financial proposals would never be as attractive as those from an outside body, like Media Partners. "But they are going to be able to offer a more stable system and the money stays within the game. Media Partners cream off their percentage," he added. "I don't understand some of the figures Media Partners have put about. It's beyond belief to suggest that an organisation created only for profit is going to pour millions and millions of pounds into grass-roots football? That's pretty desperate stuff." Wiseman added that Arsenal were divided over the Super League issue, with David Dein, Arsenal's vice-chairman, telling them that his personal feeling was that the existing system should prevail and that was causing some embarrassment for him. "It's a bizarre concept that anybody can come along and run their own competition. That leads to complete anarchy. I just don't believe it's what the clubs' fans want. If you go to see Juventus at Old Trafford, it's special because of its rarity. People can't spend all winter going to matches all over Europe."

Subject: Shearer (TeamTalk) Shearer Shutout Could Alex Ferguson be ready to eat humble pie if new Newcastle United boss Ruud Gullit decides to sell Alan Shearer ? The United boss slammed Shearer in his last book after the England striker turned down a move to Old Trafford two summers ago. Fergie was angered after being led to believe the star was ready to quit Blackburn and join the Reds. Blackburn refused to talk terms with United back then, but Ferguson felt Shearer could have done more to push the deal through himself, if he had wanted to - rather like Dwight Yorke did recently in his 12.6 million switch from Aston Villa. But after the last record breaking outlay, which took United's summer spending over 27 million, the chances of United shelling out 18 million for another striker look incredibly slim. Should Shearer be sold in the next couple of weeks, it is a far more realistic prospect that he will go abroad. The reported 'availability' of the England captain appears to have come at an inconvenient time for both parties.
