Date: Tue, 04 Aug 1998 11:24:19 -0700 Subject: Football League name their 100 footballing legends (Sporting Life) LEAGUE LEGENDS UNVEILED By Mark Bradley, PA Sport Chief Soccer Writer Top 5 Represented Clubs 17 Arsenal 14 Manchester United 14 Tottenham 11 Liverpool 10 Newcastle The Football League have unveiled the names of their chosen`100 League Legends' on a commerorative list designed as part of the celebrations for their forthcoming centenary season. Six current Premiership stars are on the list, picked by football journalists - Tony Adams, Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer, Ryan Giggs, Peter Schmeichel and Dennis Bergkamp - while Eric Cantona also features. But the idea was to spread the names chronologically across all eras of the game's development to emphasise the League's history. And while David Beckham and Michael Owen may be considered too young to warrant a place, many a debate will no doubt be sparked by the omission of internationals such as Jack Charlton, Trevor Brooking, David Seaman, Ian Wright and Peter Beardsley. The list features 34 players whose careers began before the Second World War, starting with West Bromwich Albion's Billy Bassett, who played in the 1880s, through Dixie Dean, Tommy Lawton and Sir Stanley Matthews. There are a further 37 players who started after the war but had all retired by 1980, from Nat Lofthouse, through Billy Wright and on to Sir Bobby Charlton, Geoff Hurst and Denis Law. The remaining 29 players have all played during the 1980s or 1990s, from Martin Peters and George Best, through Malcolm McDonald, Peter Shilton and Kevin Keegan to Glenn Hoddle, Kenny Dalglish and Gary Lineker. Those of the `100 Legends' who can attend will be honoured with a specially commissioned award at a Football League Centenary Dinner later this coming season - the 100th in the history of the Football League. Football League chief executive Richard Scudamore said: ``The committee had an immensely difficult task to choose just 100 `League Legends' but I think that the list they have confirmed is almost impossible to better.'' Sir Stanley, who played from 1932 to 1965, said: ``I think this is a wonderful initiative and it's great to see so many of my footballing friends and colleagues on the League Legends list.'' Sir Tom Finney added: ``It's a great honour to be nominated as a Football League legend among so many outstanding players.'' Other centenary season initiatives include the establishment of a list of `local heroes' at each of the 72 Football League clubs, as well as the production of commemorative publications. The list in full (in chronological order) is: Billy Bassett - West Bromwich Albion (1888-1900) Archie Hunter - Aston Villa (1888-1891) John Goodall - Preston, Derby, New Brighton, Glossop (1888-1904) Steve Bloomer -

X-MSMail-Priority: Normal X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 4.72.2106.4 X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V4.72.2106.4 Date: Tue, 4 Aug 1998 23:52:14 +0800 Subject: Empty Handed (MEN) BLANK CHEQUE REDS' ACE CHASE LOOKING DOOMED BY STUART MATHIESON MANCHESTER United's bid to land a top-line striker for the start of the season could end in tears. The 9m move to bring Dutch hot-shot Patrick Kluivert to Old Trafford broke down last night when the AC Milan ace decided to stay in Italy, and now Aston Villa look ready to dig their heels in over the Dwight Yorke deal. It is believed that United were ready to pay Kluivert a king's ransom in wages to lure him from Milan, but the 22-year-old goal ace stunned United by not even entering into discussions. Now United's hunt to land Yorke will have heightened, with the start of the Premiership just 12 days away. Villa, though, look set to resist any increased Old Trafford approach for the 26-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international. Villa have already rejected out of hand an 8m bid from Old Trafford for Yorke, and manager John Gregory said today: ``As far as I'm concerned I'm planning for an opening day team that will include Dwight Yorke. ``The fact that United have not got Kluivert will have made them want to keep Andy Cole even more, in which case the deal is dead in the water. ``I don't think my chairman is going to weaken and accept a cash offer.'' Alex Ferguson has already stated that United striker Andy Cole will not form a part of a swap deal. And now that his dream double strike ticket has fallen through with Kluivert's decision, off-loading players on a one-for-one basis will do nothing to inject numbers into his first team squad. In the wake of United's Champions League and Premiership title collapse last season, the United manager insisted his first team squad had to be filled out to cope this season. However, effectively only one extra ace, 4m winger Jesper Blomqvist, has been added with Gary Pallister's departure evening out the import of Jaap Stam. United will have to rethink their 8m valuation of Yorke and test Villa's resolve to reject straight cash if Fergie is to go into the new term with added goal menace.

A new list of 100 soccer legends has been unveiled to commemorate the League's centenary season and some of Greater Manchester's greatest names figure prominently. George Best, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton head the list of United legends, while Colin Bell is there for City. But, surprisingly, there is no place for Bell's illustrious team-mates, Francis Lee and Mike Summerbee. Two of Maine Road's greatest goalkeepers, Bert Trautmann and Frank Swift, are included along with Northern Irish star Peter Doherty. Duncan Edwards and Tommy Taylor are picked out from United's famous Busby Babes team of the 1950s. Wing wizard Billy Meredith, who played for both City and United in the early 1900s, is one of the earliest names on the list which includes players from all eras of the game's development. Of the more up-to-date names, there are former United heroes Bryan Robson, Paul McGrath and Eric Cantona, while Maine Road favourite Trevor Francis is also featured. Six current Premiership stars are on the list, picked by football journalists - Giggs, Schmeichel, Tony Adams, Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer and Dennis Bergkamp. And while David Beckham and Michael Owen may be considered too young to warrant a place, many a debate will be sparked by the omission of internationals such as Jack Charlton, Trevor Brooking, Ian Wright and Peter Beardsley. The list features 34 players whose careers began before the Second World War, starting with West Bromwich Albion's Billy Bassett, who played in the 1880s, through Dixie Dean, Tommy Lawton and Sir Stanley Matthews.

Sir Stanley Matthews, who played from 1932 to 1965, said: ``I think this is a wonderful initiative and it's great to see so many of my footballing friends and colleagues on the list.'' Sir Tom Finney added: ``It's a great honour to be nominated as a Football League legend among so many outstanding players.''
