Daily RED Trivia  Mon 2nd November:

2/11/1946: Cliff Collinson made his debut at Aston Villa. Collinson kept a clean sheet at    
 Villa Park but made just 7 appearances between 1946-47 due to the consistency of
 regular custodian Jack Crompton. 

2/11/1977: United beat FC Porto 5-2 at Old Trafford in the European Cup Winners
 Cup 2nd Round 2nd leg watched by 51,831. In a heroic effort, Steve Coppell 2,
 Jimmy Nicholl and Murca 2 (ogs) failed to rescue the tie which was lost on 
 a 5-6 aggregate. Team was: Stepney, Nicholl, Albiston, McIlroy, Houston, 
 Buchan, McGrath, Coppell, Pearson, McCreery, Hill.

BREAKING NEWS - Sunday 01 November 1998 Subject: BLOMQVIST IS JESP THE JOB FOR FERGUSON Jesper Blomqvist stepped into Ryan Giggs' jinking boots and declared: "I will get better and better." The Swede scored his first goal in English football in the 4-1 demolition of Everton at Goodison Park. And it is just what Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson wants to hear from his £4.4million import from Palma as the Old Trafford club face at least a month without broken-foot victim Giggs with critical Champions' League clashes with Brondby on Wednesday and then in the Nou Camp against Barcelona on November 25. Fergie bought Blomqvist in the summer for just this eventuality. Last season injury to Giggs was blamed for United losing their league title and crashing out of the European Cup at the quarter-final stage. Fergie vowed to bolster his squad with a player who could stand-in for the injury-prone Welsh star, and Blomqvist is ideal - a winger he had been chasing since the 24-year-old destroyed United in a Euro tie in Gothenburg in November 1994. Now Blomqvist has stepped in for Giggs and is doing everything his boss wants from him. Blomqvist said: "I'm pleased with the goal, and I feel I am getting better and better now with every game. "I certainly hope there is still more to come from me. But playing with Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole is good. They are good to have in attack for a winger like me. "They also help you with one-twos. They are not just goalscorers, they can keep the ball and lay it off, they are a good pair. We are scoring a lot of goals at the moment, but that's a team thing. "When we produce the quick passing there are not many teams who can compete with us because of the pace that we play at." Blomqvist could be the key to United keeping their quest for Europe and the Premiership on course while Giggs is out. The Swede added: "We have to keep our mental concentration because teams are trying so hard to beat us, we just have to keep that up. "We have put some pressure on Aston Villa now, but we know we have to keep winning. Now we have a big and important game on Wednesday against Brondby, and we know we must win that too." Saturday at G oodison Park was Blomqvist's seventh start of the campaign, and his first goal. Ferguson said: "Jesper is a very talented player, and you get plenty of grit from him too, and I'm pleased he scored hi s first goal. He's perfect for us, that is what a pool is all about, last season we didn't have that, this season it will make all the difference."

Subject: United close the gap Everton 1-4 Manchester United Manchester United ended Everton's 10-game unbeaten run in dramatic fashion. United, who have scored 21 goals in six matches, are now only a point behind Premiership leaders Aston Villa. Everton, who had not scored at home all season managed to break that jinx thanks to skipper Duncan Ferguson. But although they played well for long spells, but they had no answer to the high speed, flowing counter-attacks that exposed a back line made up of four centre-halves. The Toffees flew at the visitors from the start, and Ferguson could have scored three times inside the first minute. He first collected a David Unsworth long ball that eluded Jaap Stam and fired in a vicious drive that Peter Schmeichel could only palm away. It came straight back to Ferguson, whose shot was deflected inches over the bar. From the corner, by John Collins, Ferguson rose to power in a header that Schmeichel saved. United onslaught United took the lead after 14 minutes when Andy Cole centred from the left and Paul Scholes - coming in unmarked on the right - laid the ball into Dwight Yorke's stride in the six-yard box. Thomas Myhre made a superb reflex save from the point-blank shot, but the ball went straight back to York who volleyed it into the roof of the net. United went two ahead after 23 minutes. Roy Keane released Jesper Blomqvist on the left, and his long cross found David Beckham free on the far right. When the cross came over, Craig Short somehow managed to head the ball into his own net. Everton were defending deep and giving acres of space for United's free running stars to surge into. Keane and Scholes were clearly too much for Collins and Dacourt to handle, and Michael Ball was forced inside to help his colleagues, leaving space for Beckham to exploit and run at the exposed Unsworth at left-back. Everton end goal drought Everton pulled a goal back when Danny Cadamarteri was brought down out on the touchline. Ferguson rose above everyone in a packed area to head home Ball's freekick. Two more United goals followed. After 59 minutes Scholes fed the ball into the box for Cole, who turned to drive a shot in off the far post. Five minutes later United struck again when Collins lost the ball deep in the visitors' half. Beckham took possession and fed Blomqvist, who raced into the box - saw his first shot blocked by Myhre - but headed the rebound home.

Subject: Giggs out for a month Ryan Giggs: Broken a bone in his left foot Manchester United's Ryan Giggs will be out of action for a month with a broken foot, according to manager Alex Ferguson. Giggs had been struggling with the injury since the victory over Liverpool a month ago - but received another blow to his left foot against Derby last weekend. United sent the winger for X-rays this week when he was barely able to walk. It was then discovered that Giggs had broken a small bone in his left foot. Ferguson said: "It is a bad blow for us, particularly with the crucial Champions League game in Barcelona only three weeks away. "We discovered the injury after he was hurt again playing against Derby." It means that Swedish winger Jesper Blomqvist will retain his left-wing role in the United side.
