X-Sender: giggs@tiac.net X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Pro Version 3.0 (32) Date: Sun, 03 May 1998 09:38:08 -0400 To: suggs@tiac.net From: J Callaghan (by way of Red Devils List ) Subject: Fergie on Foe SUNDAY, MAY 3, 1998 Pallister's new link to Sunderland The imminent arrival of Jaap Stam has lead to the inevitable speculation surrounding the future of United's established rearguard - none more so than centre-half Gary Pallister. Pallister, recently linked with a move to promotion-hopefuls Middlesbrough, is now a reported target of Peter Reid's Sunderland. Peter Reid is keen to add some senior players with top-flight experience to add to his rather young squad. The futures of David May, Gary Pallister and Henning Berg have all come under the microscope during the weeks of Stam speculation. Stam looks certain to start the new campaign, with Johnsen favourite to partner him. However despite all the speculation, the word from Old Trafford is that Alex Ferguson doesn't want to sell any of the players. Foe update As we revealed earlier this week on TEAMtalk, Alex Ferguson was in Paris last night to watch another of his reported targets Marc Vivien-Foe. United are believed to be lining up a 3m deal for the 22-year old Cameroon international, who can operate in defence or midfield. Ferguson commented: "I see Foe as a midfielder with us. He is a very powerful player and has had an outstanding season for his club. "He's an interesting prospect." Super League shocker A Sunday tabloid newpaper has run a story claiming that Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are all mulling over a decision whether or not to join a European Super League, planned for the new Millennium. It is reported that as early as 2002, a new two-division league may be devised spanning the 32 best teams in European club football. If the story is found to be true, the repercussions on the domestic league system will be horrendous. The report comes in the light of power struggles on the continent, and Premier League spokesman Mike Lee admitted there are problems which have recently talked about. He said: "We've been talking with other leagues in Europe. We've been discussing things like, Bosman, agents, club competitions and international fixtures; although it's well documented certain clubs in Italy have looked at that possibility." We await further developments. United link with Blades defender The latest player to be linked with a move to Old Trafford is Sheffield United left-back-cum-left-midfielder Wayne Quinn. Quinn has proved himself a big hit with the Bramall Lane faithful after turning in some impressive performances for the promotion-hopefuls. If the article is true to form, Quinn could well prove to be a valuable addition to the United squad because of his versatility and with United having no other natural left-footer in their regular first team other than Ryan Giggs, Ferguson's may find his hand forced. It is further claimed that United's new chief scout Mick Brown has watched the England Under-21 and B international on a number of occasions. Quinn is an obvious starter for the Blades' must-win clash at Edgeley Park on Sunday, with United needing all three points to secure themselves a play-off spot. United are likely to demand a fee of 1.5m.

United play their final home game of the season against Leeds tomorrow evening and - regardless of what happens at Arsenal today - manager Alex Ferguson wants to win it. The Old Trafford outfit have already secured second place and a coveted berth in next season's Champions' League, but Ferguson wants to finish on a winning note. Leeds beat United in September at Elland Road when Roy Keane injured his knee and Ferguson is anxious to sign off on a high against their fierce rivals. He was pleased by their victory at Crystal Palace on Monday and he wants to build on that and win their last three League games. ``Our performance against Palace was excellent and we will be doing everything we can to win our remaining matches,'' he said. ``We've got to make sure that we win our last home game against Leeds. ``We all want to end on a high note and we want a good performance for that reason as much as anything else. ``The last home game is always important and particularly so in this case because it is against one of main rivals.'' Ferguson knows, though, from past experience that that is easier said than done against George Graham's side, who have set their sights on claiming a UEFA Cup spot. ``It's going to be a hard game against Leeds because they have been doing well recently. George has done a terrific job there and he's got them really well organised. ``We recognise what he's done and we know that it's going to be tough. The fact that it is a local derby type situation gives it even more edge. ``But I think our players are on song at the minute and can handle that.'' Old Gunnar Solskjaer misses the Roses match as he begins his three-match suspension for his sending off against Newcastle and he will also be banned for the first game of next season. Gary Neville returns after he missed the victory at Selhurst Park with a virus, but Ronny Johnsen is out as he recovers from his cartilage operation.
