Blackburn v Man United 06/04/98 8.00 Blackburn (1) 1 Man United (0) 3 FT Sutton 32 (pen) Cole 56 Scholes 73 Beckham 89 Manchester United were boosted by the return of their four injured players for tonight's crunch FA Carling Premiership match against Blackburn at Ewood Park. Peter Schmeichel, Gary Pallister and Ryan Giggs were all named to start, while Nicky Butt was on the bench. Teddy Sheringham returned from suspension but had to make do with a place among the substitutes, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer partnered Andy Cole in attack. Blackburn were to start with the side which finished against Barnsley last Tuesday, Alan Fettis continuing in goal in the absence of the injured Tim Flowers. Chris Sutton drew first blood for Blackburn against United when he fired home from the penalty spot. Sutton, who collected the Carling Player of the Month award before the kick-off, scored in the 32nd minute after Gary Neville had fouled Damien Duff. Rovers, who went into the game with just one win over the champions in their previous 11 encounters, deserved their lead after a bright first half. United boss Alex Ferguson watched the opening 45 minutes from the stand and what he saw left him with plenty to think about. There has been little love lost between the rivals sets of fans over recent years and they made their feelings heard from the start. Blackburn brought their supporters in the capacity crowd to their feet after just three minutes. Garry Flitcroft played an inviting ball to the back post where Gary Neville beat Chris Sutton to the cross at the expense of a corner, from which Colin Hendry fired over. Both sides desperately wanted to win for different reasons - United to open up a six-point lead over Arsenal at the top of the Premiership and Blackburn to maintain their UEFA Cup challenge - but neither could work an opening. On 20 minutes Billy McKinlay tried to release Kevin Gallacher with a great ball, but Pallister read the move and cleared the danger. Two minutes later, Sutton fed Jeff Kenna down the right channel and he cut in before unleashing a left-foot shot from the edge of the area, which Schmeichel gathered at the second attempt. The Dane made another mistake, which could have proved costlier, when he dropped Stephane Henchoz's free-kick, but United managed to scramble the ball away. In between time Pallister became the first player to be booked by referee Gerald Ashby for a foul on Sutton. Ashby has still not been forgiven by Rovers after he controversially sent Henning Berg off in their 4-2 defeat against United in October 1994. Tempers flared after 29 minutes when Tim Sherwood squared up to Gary Neville after the Rovers captain had hooked Damien Duff's corner wide. Ashby went some way to redeeming himself in the eyes of the Rovers fans when he awarded them a penalty after Gary Neville brought down Duff from Sutton's pass. Sutton duly drilled the spot-kick home under Schmeichel for his 20th goal of the season to give Blackburn the lead. United tried to respond and Solskjaer, who scored twice in their 4-0 victory at Old Trafford in November, blazed over from Henchoz's partial clearance.

Subject: Manchester United fight back to win at Blackburn To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU Soccer-Manchester United fight back to win at Blackburn LONDON, April 6 (Reuters) - Manchester United kept the premier league title race at boiling point on Monday by coming from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers, one of the challenging pack, 3-1 away. A stunning 56th minute goal by Andy Cole on his 100th league appearance for United lifted his side after a sterile first half performance in which they had fallen behind to Chris Sutton's 17th premier league strike of the season. Further goals followed from Paul Scholes and David Beckham. Cole, with only one goal in his previous 12 premier league games, broke down the right, cut inside full back Stephan Henchoz and beat goalkeeper Alan Fettis with an acutely angled shot for his 23rd strike of the season. Scholes's goal in the 73rd minute was more mundane but no less important. Beckham crossed from the right, the ball bounced off Scholes's knee, wrong-footing goalkeeper Alan Fettis, and trickled into the goal. Beckham broke clear in injury time and steered his shot wide of Fettis. Blackburn's penalty was awarded in the 32nd minute when England full back Gary Neville hauled down Damien Duff just inside the area after being beaten for pace by the Ireland international. United's win stretched their lead to six points over Arsenal who have played three games fewer. ________________________ Mike Keeley National Futures Association personal: email@example.com business: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Blackburn Report Comments: To: Red Devil List , Darul Kisai , Darul To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU Soccer-Cole goal sparks Manchester United fightback (adds detail, quotes) By Jeremy Butler LONDON, April 6 (Reuters) - Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson admitted his side had almost handed the premier league title to Arsenal before coming back from a goal down to beat Blackburn Rovers 3-1 on Monday. Strikes from Andy Cole and David Beckham sandwiched around a fluke Paul Scholes goal were enough to see United home after Blackburn's Chris Sutton had opened the scoring with a first half penalty. It was during a sterile opening 45 minutes by United that Ferguson thought his team were about to be torn apart by rampant Blackburn. Sutton and Kevin Gallacher gave United's back line a torrid evening with a high class showing of forward play. A relieved Ferguson said later: "I can't remember getting as big a going over as we did in the first half. "We were absolutely outfought, outrun and outplayed and had to improve in the second half. With a bit of bad luck we could have been well out of the title race by halftime because they were that good. "But I believe we will play far better in future. I expect Ryan Giggs and Gary Pallister to be better for the game after coming back from injury and I expect one or two others to improve." Ferguson felt Cole's 56th minute strike was the turning point. "To see an equaliser go in when you have been playing so well and were on top certainly would have knocked them," he said. "The United boss played down his clever tactical switch of sending on the terrier-like Nicky Butt for the second half in place of ineffective Norwegian striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "I think Butt was instrumental in getting us going by getting a foot in the middle of the park and turning it around," he said. Disappointed Blackburn manager Roy Hodgson claimed his side should have been given a second penalty in the 76th minute that would have levelled the scores. Gallacher was tripped in the box by Pallister but referee Gerald Ashby ignored the Blackburn's protests. Said Hodgson: "You have to give United credit, though. To come back from 1-0 down away from home and turn it around against a team playing so well is an achievement." Cole's goal, only his second in his last 13 league appearances, was a beauty. He broke down the right, cut inside full back Stephan Henchoz and beat goalkeeper Alan Fettis with an acutely angled shot for his 23rd strike of the season. Scholes's goal in the 73rd minute was more mundane but no less important. Beckham crossed from the right, the ball bounced off Scholes's knee, wrong-footing Fettis, and trickled into the goal. Beckham put the icing on the cake in injury time when he broke clear and steered his shot wide of Fettis. Blackburn's penalty was awarded in the 32nd minute when England full back Gary Neville hauled down Damien Duff just inside the area after being beaten for pace by the Ireland international. United's win stretched their lead to six points over Arsenal who have played three games fewer. Date: Tue, 07 Apr 1998 10:16:18 -0700 To: email@example.com Subject: The Great Escape (PA) COLE SPARKS GREAT ESCAPE By Martin Lipton, PA Sport Chief Soccer Writer Alex Ferguson sighed with relief after a stunning Ewood Park turnaround and admitted he feared his men were blowing the title. Run ragged by a Chris Sutton wondershow that only earned Blackburn a spot-kick reward, United seemed to be kissing goodbye to their Premiership crown. But sparked by the interval introduction of Nicky Butt, Andy Cole hauled United level with their first real shot of the game. Then a fluke from Paul Scholes - he converted David Beckham's cross with the outside of his right knee past a wrong-footed Alan Fettis - nudged them ahead, before Beckham sealed a 3-1 victory in the final minute from Ryan Giggs' perfect pass. It was a win that put United back six points ahead of Arsenal, although the Gunners have three games in hand. But Ferguson revealed he feared the title was slipping from his side's grasp at the break. "We could've been out of the match, and out of the championship race, by half-time," said Ferguson. "If we'd got beaten it would've given Arsenal a massive boost, three points behind with three in hand, and that was the way it was looking. "I honestly can't remember the last time we got a 'doing' like we did in the first half. "We were absolutely out-thought, out-fought, out-run and out-played. Sutton and Kevin Gallacher were brilliant for them, the interchange and movement was outstanding. "We started to impose ourselves when Butt came on, stopping Billy McKinlay from running the game, but the turning point was Cole's goal. "I knew we were going to come back at some stage - although I couldn't see when - and 1-0 is always dangerous. "But Cole got a goal out of nothing and suddenly, from a position of absolutely slaughtering us, it was 1-1. "They still played some excellent football and they've got the right to feel sorry for themselves because they played the better football. "At this stage of the season your fighting qualities are important. We didn't give up. It wasn't a good performance but it got us a very important result." Ferguson's own fiery determination was shown in his response to a clash between Beckham and Jason Wilcox after the United man felt he had been caught by a flailing hand. The Old Trafford boss rushed from his dug-out to stand toe-to-toe with referee Gerald Ashby and his linesman, but laughed it off afterwards. "I just gave a little reminder to everyone if they think I'm going to retire and have a nice easy life!" said Fergie. "Wilcox definitely hit him with the hand and the linesman should've seen it. If a season goes by without me losing my temper, will you tell me and let me do something about it?" While Ferguson said his side had been handed "a warning" by their display, Rovers boss Roy Hodgson seemed almost inconsolable. "It wasn't a bad performance but it was a very bad result - and I find myself saying that too often for my comfort or the team's comfort," he said. "It's a crumb of comfort that Alex said we'd played the better football but I'd much rather have played the worst and won the game. "We had more chances and didn't defend badly, had the lion's share of possession, but they got the three points and that's why they're going for the championship. "Either I'm talking rubbish, or there's something wrong. And that's something we have to put right." Maybe so, but Ferguson would certainly be happy with more of the same from Hodgson's side when they entertain the Gunners next Monday. "I just hope they can play like that again," said Ferguson, whose side can extend their lead to nine points when they host Liverpool on Good Friday. "They should bottle that. As a manager you just hope you can produce that kind of performance." © PA Sporting Life Marcus Lionel van Geyzel.

(by way of RED-DEVILS Mailing List ) Subject: Dreadful news Spotted this in the Telegraph, Midfielder Ray Parlour has become the latest Arsenal player to be suspended after being booked in the 1-0 FA Cup semi-final victory over Wolves on Sunday. Suspensions look to be one of the main obstacles blocking Arsenal's path to the Double. Dennis Bergkamp must serve the final game of his three-match suspension against Newcastle on Saturday while defenders Martin Keown and Steve Bould are already out of the home match against Wimbledon on April 18. Parlour will miss the trip to Barnsley a week later after being shown a yellow card for the fifth time this season. My heart bleeds for them.

The United manager, inflamed by the drama as his side came from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers 3-1, leaped from the dug-out to harangue a linesman. Some might see it as leading by example and his players caught the mood to collect the three points they so desperately needed. They did so after being given the worst run-around their manager could recall in two years. Fergie's florid outburst came in the 65th minute after a meaty clash between United's David Beckham and Jason Wilcox, in which the Rovers man appeared to be hit in the face. As substitute David May joined in, the Ewood Park game's fourth official Uriah Rennie dashed to intervene. Ferguson had to be dragged away from the face-to-face confrontation by his assistant Brian Kidd and was given a lecture by Worcester referee Gerald Ashby. But later he had no regrets when he said: 'Maybe that was just my wee way of saying to people that I have not given up yet. It was a reminder to people that I am not going to retire and take the easy life. If a season goes by without me losing my temper then I'd like to know about it.' The touchline flare-up, with United level after Andy Cole had equalised Chris Sutton's penalty strike, acted as the perfect reminder to the Old Trafford players who, Ferguson said, had been 'outfought, outrun and outplayed' in the first half. It seemed to do the trick. Six minutes later Paul Scholes prodded United ahead from a brilliant cross by Beckham, then in the final minute the England winger himself completed the comeback which Ferguson Marcus Lionel van Geyzel.
