Subject: Team News: BIG GUNS JOIN SECOND STRING FOR REDS CUP CAMPAIGN Manchester United bring in two of their big guns for tomorrow's Worthington Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane, but Alex Ferguson is sticking to his policy of using mostly a second-string side. Former Tottenham star Teddy Sheringham starts his first game since September 30, and Ryan Giggs continues his build-up for next week's showdown with Bayern Munich in the Champions' League. But they are both coming back after injury, and the United boss draws a line there with only a sprinkling of other first-team regulars in the side. Ronny Johnsen is another likely to figure if he comes through a fitness test, although David May and Jordi Cruyff are ruled out because of injury. ''There was no temptation at all to put the first team out,'' says Ferguson. ''Not in the context of the season we have. It is vital for players like Henning Berg, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Teddy Sheringham. ''It is an important game for them. I think all those who play tomorrow will have something to play for. They could get us to the final and they could win the Worthington Cup.'' Ferguson saw his largely second-string side knocked out of the then Coca-Cola Cup by Ipswich last year and knows Tottenham boss George Graham views things differently from him and that Spurs will be close to full strength. ''This is George's big chance of winning a trophy in his first season at Tottenham and they will play their strongest team,'' he said ''But I think it is terrific for our players going there for a big game like this, and for a change, we are the underdogs.''

Subject: Keeper Bid Soon (TeamTalk) Reds Eye Urgent Keeper Solution Speculation is mounting that United will make a move for Ajax keeper Edwin van der Sar sooner rather than later. The giant Dutchman - who stands taller than Peter Schmeichel - is said to top Alex Ferguson's wanted list, and United would be prepared to meet his club's £4m asking price to get their man. The timing of the move will depend on what happens next week as the final group games of the Champions' League sort out which eight teams go through to the quarter-finals. Ajax are second in their section with seven points and, although still harbouring hopes of progression as runners-up, are unlikely to go through. While they are still in with a shout, though, there seems little chance of the Dutch champions letting the 28-year-old international go. If United qualify and Ajax don't, Fergie is expected to make his move during the mid-winter transfer break after which he could play Van der Sar in the Premiership and rotate Schmeichel back in for the Champions' League matches. This would ease the burden on the Great Dane who claimed the hectic fixture schedule was a big reason for his decision to quit the English game at the end of the season. Alex Ferguson is anxious to bridge the gap as quickly, effectively and painlessly as possible. The Reds do not want to get into a situation where other clubs can hold them to ransom in the summer over the available targets who have been assessed. While United want an experienced replacement for Schmeichel, they are also thought to be monitoring several young keepers in Europe with a view to bringing one through as a back-up over the next couple of seasons. Matthias Asper of Swedish club AIK Stockholm is attracting interest at the moment. Speculation has moved away from Mark Bosnich recently but the focus could return to the Australian if he recovers from a shoulder injury in time to make his comeback for Aston Villa against United this Saturday.

Jon Leigh Personal Barcelona Report I'm sure not too many people will want to know what I got up to be here goes.....4:55 a.m. Tuesday morning, and I am listening to the sound I hate more than anything else in the whole wide world: the sound of my alarm clock. For reasons I (and she) will never understand, my girlfriend the lovely Denise had volunteered to drive me from Ilkley to Manchester Airport and pick me up when I got back, so 45 minutes later we were hurtling along the A59 towards the M6 with her at the wheel. 5:45 a.m. And I am at Manchester Airport and see a few familiar faces - like Andy Shaw and Peter Eyres from Mere Golf Club (sounds posh, but Peter is the pro there and a top lad and top red) and finally meet up with the other 5 lads in the group. There were meant to be 12 of us, but SIX lads had jellied out at the last minute AND not paid the 400 quid for the trip. Beyond me, but there you go. By the time we have checked in it is time to board the Luftwaffe (sorry, Lufthansa) flight to MUNICH, from where we are flying on to Barca. The nice thing about scheduled flights is that the air hostesses are quite happy to give you as many drinks as you ask for - it's no skin off their nose. And those little whisky bottles have at least a double measure in them. Consequently by 7:30a.m. I was tucking in to the first of an estimated 8 double Jack Daniels of the 2 flights. After a quick beer in Munich (I knew those left-over D-Marks from October would come in useful) we are on the plane to Barcelona. At this point I lose track of time a bit, along with my 5 colleagues, and to be honest I've no f*cking idea what time we got there. A short taxi ride to the hotel, bags dumped, and we are walking along La Rambla. At the bottom we see Kevin Moran at a bar. He comments, about my 9th JD & Coke of the day "I bet that's not diet coke, is it?". I don't remember if we had lunch, but we end up in a bar on La Rambla full of reds in full voice. A worse for wear Messrs Eyres and Shaw are also there, along with a certain P. Boyle who very generously buys me a (pint of) JD & Coke. Somehow we end up in a restaurant where we meet Wilf McGuinness and (separately) Paddy Crerand's mate: Mr. Alan Green. To his credit, he spends a good half hour talking to us, and he certainly sympathises with our "you can stick yer f*ckin Ingerland up...", thinks Hoddle is a tosser etc., but he loses all his brownie points by continuing to insist that Keano is a lout. Oh and it seems Fergie doesn't exactly think the sun shines out of his arse either. Due to a bout of hiccups (wonder why) I have to retire to bed early at about midnight. On my way back (alone) along La Rambla I am propositioned by a prostitute of indeterminate gender. I politely decline. So on to day 2, the day of the match. We are soon back on the alcohol. One of our party, a certain Les Watson, is a good mate of Roger Edwards (Fartin's brother) so we go along to his (and as it turns out the team's) hotel to pick him up. There we see Fergie and most of the team. I resist the temptation to advise Schikes to try not to chuck it in his own goal tonight, because he's a pretty awsome-looking bugger close up. Roger is in a dreadful state. It seems he and Fartin were out till about 3 the night before - he told us the full story. For legal reasons I cannot pass on his account of proceedings, but let's just say a few local women must have been several hundred quid of fans' money better off and BSkyB probably have enough on Fartin to blackmail him into selling his 14% to them. (I wonder....). Poor Roger has to endure about 2 hours of me lecturing him on how his brother is selling us up the river. It seems they have a strange relationship: Roger is hardly a down and out, but he is not exactly a millionaire and by all accounts he won't get a penny of Fartin's 90 mil. Now if you had that much money how much would YOU give your brother/sister?? A few drinks in the hotel bar serve only to top up the previous day, so lunch in a Tapas bar near the team hotel is a bit of a blur. I've no idea where we went next, but at about 7pm we are getting in a taxi outside our hotel. There I see Paddy Crerand, who I ask about the bid. I think I've already said he is dead against it, and it was lovely to hear the "We're paying the interest on Murdoch's bank loan" line. We get the taxi driver (whom Roger used the previous night and who confirmed where they had been) to drop us off at the Pricess Sophia (I think) hotel near the ground and head for the bar. En route we see El Tel, who is amused by our comments that he "was a better England manager than the current tosser" but we don't trouble him as we are thirsty. I have to say that this bar was full of complete tossers, most of whom I had never seen before, most on some sort of 'freebie' to watch United. Very upsetting. Inside the stadium, I meet up with a couple of old reds who I see at nearly every away game. I ask them about the bid, and to my surprise they are FOR it. After 30 minutes of ear-bending they change their tune to "it's inevitable anyway". Very disheartening, but I think I moved them slightly towards understanding a little better what is going on. We are on the very left-hand edge of the United section and horrifically with 5 minutes to kick-off the rest of the ground is EMPTY. Now I know what it's like at Maine Road for an FA Cup tie. There are plenty of proper reds about, but there IS one tosser with a non-Manc accent who seems to think the war with the Spanish Armada has not ended and hurls racist abuse continually at the startled Barca fans to the point of not spending much time watching the game (which may have been his first ever). I think we all know where people like that should NOT be. We all know what happened during the game - the "oh here we go" after 40 seconds, the "we can win this" when Dwight scores, the "we're 4 passes from winning this" at half time, the "YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS" when Andy scores, the "can't see them getting back into it" until Schmikes decides to go disco-dancing instead of stopping Rivaldo's chipped free kick, the 3-2, the inevitable 3-3, the near 4-3 (to them). The ground suddenly filling up (lower sections mostly) at half time. The thought leaving the stadium that we should be already in the quarter finals. A veil will be drawn over the rest of that night's proceedings. Thursday, and although glad that we don't have to get up early to catch a plane home, Barcelona is depressingly eerie without 10,000 drunken reds about the place. We have a very very long lunch somewhere in Barcelona. Once more, a veil will be drawn over the evening's proceedings. 5:00 the next morning (Friday), and it's up nice and early again to fly (via FRANKFURT this time) back to Manchester. Strangely Lufthansa's alcohol supplies are not given anything near the hammering they got on the way out. After a lovely delay in Frankfurt due to snow (!) we finally get back to the Peoples' Republic of Manchester at 1pm where my lovely lady is wating to take me back home (knackered) to Ilkley. European Super League? No way any human being could do this more than 4 or 5 times a year.

"Baker, Andrew" Subject: Barcelona Trip My mate and I arranged a trip for 12 of us from Lancaster that gave us three nights in Barcelona .... the whole lot including transfers to London by train, the various Taxi fares to and from the airport, tickets, accommodation, flights etc came to less than ?250. We arrived in Barcelona about 10:30 on Monday evening after a fairly traumatic change of planes at Brussels airport. Someone at Heathrow had forgotten to give us boarding cards for the Brussels/Barcelona flight and we had 15 minutes to catch the flight. After running back and forth around the airport (must have looked like the Nike advert) we managed to get Virgin to come up with some boarding cards and they held the plane for 10 minutes - I was totally knackered. To cap it all, it was the same plane that we had just got off !!!! Anyway we checked in at the hotel (excellent value at ?20 p.p.p.n) and arranged to go out 20 mins later. Set off for the top of the Ramblas and worked our way down to the nearest bar ... well ripped off in there. The United fans at the bar must have thought likewise as they helped themselves to the bottles of wine before leaving !! A quick hour in the Robin Hood bar before they closed (they stay open until 3:00 but it was too busy so they closed early - some strange logic there !) Tuesday A bit of culture on Tuesday ... went off and had a look round the Nou Camp and the museum. It was my first time in the ground and the place is awesome. I wasn't that impressed with the museum though - full of all sorts of crap and a very "arty" section upstairs. Then it was off to the Sagrada Familia - a strange building if ever I saw one ... that Gaudi bloke who had years of input to the design must have been on some real good stuff to come up with that place. Basically its still a building site and I'm not sure if it will be finished in my life time - worth a look though. The culture trip got a bit much when it was suggested we visit the Picasso museum ... I along with most of the others opted for the nearest bar !!! Tuesday night was decent food then an extended session in the bars ... or so we thought. First stop, the Olympic Village ... fairly mediocre Tex Mex restaurant and then a walk past countless empty bars ... all still blasting music out ... caught the last 10 minutes of the Liverpool game and the hilarious last goal for Celta Vigo in one of the bars - this one actually had people in which was surprising at ?3:20 for a bottle of Bud !! Decided to go back to the Ramblas as there were bound to be many more Reds about that night ... timing was perfect -not. We get there and the riot police had moved in to clear the Robin Hood and the surrounding bars. So much for the extended bar crawl ... after walking for what seemed like hours (I should have been sponsored it was that far !!) we grabbed taxis back to the hotel and fortunately found a bar that kept open for us. Wednesday was a gentle build up to the game ... at ?45 a ticket I didn't want to be in such a state that I remembered little of the game. Window shopping was in order on the Avda Diagonal - Gucci is a touch out of my range ... a few bars then back to the hotel to get on the arctic clothing for the game. Found a great bar near the ground and turned it into a small part of Lancaster with the flags tied to the nearest trees. No hassle from the locals or the police. Had a visit from Wilf McGuiness who was out there working for the media. Eventually and reluctantly we left for the ground ... not content with having tickets in the top tier, ours were 3 rows from the back !!! No wonder they have barriers in front of every row of seats - not a place for people with vertigo. Stupid idea of the night was to climb even further up on the posts at the back to tie the flags up .... I gave up after a while but one of the lads braved it to get them up - pity the T.V. cameras decided not to show the United fans during the game. I wont go into the game as no doubt that's already been covered ... strangely disappointed though even after such a great game. A few beers afterwards near the ground and then back nearer the hotel .... then the memory chip seems to fail until Thursday morning ... a 14 hour journey home and back to reality. Roll on May and the return trip .... Report by Andy.

Subject: Kiddo Offered Rovers Job Blackburn Bid For Kidd Rejected United have refused Blackburn Rovers permission to offer Brian Kidd a king's ransom to quit Old Trafford and take over as manager of the Premiership's bottom club. Rovers supremo Jack Walker officially made his move yesterday morning - calling United chief executive Martin Edwards and asking to speak to Alex Ferguson's right-hand man. But the bold bid was halted before it even began when Edwards steadfastly denied Blackburn the chance to quadruple Kidd's earnings with an offer of a £500,000-a-year job and a massive transfer war chest. Walker made Kidd his number one choice after crisis talks at the weekend but Blackburn's only chance of getting their man now would be if the highly-respected Reds coach was to walk out on the club he has served for 30 years. Edwards effectively told his counterpart that Kidd, who signed a new four-year deal with the club last summer, leaves "over my dead body". United's refusal to let Rovers speak to Kidd is just the latest episode in a boardroom feud which has existed ever since the East Lancashire upstarts challenged for the title. Walker denied the club the chance to sign Alan Shearer when he left for £15 million then replied with a cheeky bid for Eric Cantona which met with an equally frosty response.

From: Jonathan Tedds Subject: Harry McShane/too early/too many questions! Shame people didn't realise who Harry McShane is but then again it's always the same old ritual at half-time isn't it?! Most of us are off to the loo/for a pint/to try and find mates/all of these things at half-time since we can rarely sit together these days so it's hardly surprising there's not much response to the Keith mundane and his cash dash mish-mash. The only surprising thing is that MC Mundane continues to be surprised at the lack of reaction! I don't know about everyone else but putting the kick-off time back to 2 o'clock is a nightmare after two night's drinking on Fri/Sat - and i was only driving in from Lancs on Sunday! No wonder the atmosphere was a bit below par for a sheep encounter - I could hardly speak my throat was so dry. [Good job we weren't playing the Lards in the end Doug!] The sheep fans were far too boring to raise most from their Sunday slumber too often. It was a weird game all-told, until Leeds scored we created lots of chances but Dwight and Coley were rusty after Barce and couldn't convert. Still, it was great to see Nicky score a class winner and hopefully he can keep his shots down a bit more often now he's managed to get one in (!). Best shot of the day (not) award as usual won by G. Neville esquire in the 2nd half with a half-overhead slicer special - nice one to add to the collection Gazza! Wes Brown is f@~%ing class and seems completely unfazed when he makes a mistake - he's amazingly athletic in his running - what potential! Stam made some very important interceptions before going off - he's a class act individually too but the defence has a lot of work to do to become a cohesive unit of the kind we've become used to. I suppose we've just got to be patient but we were hanging on at the end on Sunday and I'm ageing fast. A question - can we come up with a song for Yorkey? There's always the Sinatra New York version sung by Villa but not sure how many people can stomach that one! Cheers, Jonny

          If ever they are playing in your town
          You must get to that football ground
          Take a lesson come to see
          Football taught by Matt Busby
          Manchester, Manchester United
          A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
          They deserve to be knighted
