Daily RED Trivia  7th August:

1939: Charlie Roberts died in Manchester. Roberts was bought from Grimsby Town
      for 600 in April 1904, and was an inspirational captain and Half-back who led United
      to League Championships in 1908 and 1911, and the FA Cup triumph in 1909. 
      He played 299 times and scored 23 goals between 1904-13, and won 3 England caps.
      Roberts joined Oldham Athletic in August 1913.

      60,000. Mark Hughes scored for the Reds, who triumphed in the penalty shootout
      5-4. Team was: Schmeichel, Parker, Irwin, Bruce, Kanchelskis, Pallister, Cantona,
      Ince, Hughes, Keane, Giggs (Robson).                

UNITED EURO TIE HANGS IN BALANCE 
     
    MANCHESTER UNITED will not know until
    Friday whether their Champions' League clash
    next week with Polish side LKS Lodz will go
    ahead at Old Trafford. 
     
    It all hangs on a row between the Polish government and UEFA, over
    the suspension by the Warsaw government of Polish FA officials. 
     
    UEFA believe the decisions have been made on political grounds and
    want their reinstatement before Polish football is allowed to compete
    in UEFA competitions.

From: Robert Gaunt Subject: HANDS OFF SAYS FERGIE (SKY) To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU ALEX FERGUSON has issued a hands off warning to any vultures planning a swoop on his United squad by insisting: "None is for sale." On tour in Norway, United boss Fergie delivered his message after a days of trying in vain to add to his squad - rather than off load any of his stars. Declining to comment on Patrick Kluivert's decision to stay at AC Milan or United's interest in Dwight Yorke, he did say: "Nobody is for sale at the moment. "That's all the players I have - I am trying to build a squad to cope with challenging for three major domestic honours and the Champions League. "We suffered last year in that respect when we lost players to injury and fell away."

From: barrylee@post3.tele.dk (Barry Leeming) Subject: Van Hooijdonk Wants United (D.Mail) Date: Thu, 6 Aug 1998 16:04:00 +0200 I want United, says rebel Pierre Thursday, August 6, 1998 Pierre Van Hooijdonk has issued a 'come-and-get-me plea' to Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson. The Nottingham Forest striker, who has accused his club of lacking ambition, says: 'l'd love to play at Old Trafford.' He remains unrepentant about his decision not to return to the City Ground and insists he will stay in Holland 'for many months if necessary'. The 28-year-old Dutch World Cup striker says: 'I am determined to see it through to the end. If it takes many months I really do not care because I am adamant I will not go back to Forest.' Van Hooijdonk, who is training with his home-town club NAC Breda, also interests Turkish club Fenerbahce but says: 'United are just the sort of club who want to win things. Anybody would love to play at Old Trafford and I am no different.' He claims Forest manager Dave Bassett sympathises with his situation, saying: 'He is furious the club sold Kevin Campbell but says his hands are tied.'

X-Mailer: AOL 3.0 for Windows 95 sub 18 Date: Thu, 6 Aug 1998 11:37:32 EDT Reply-To: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" Sender: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" From: Cameron Corda Subject: Van Hooijidonk FENERBAHCE IN BIG-MONEY MOVE FOR PIERRE PIERRE VAN HOOIJDONK'S self-imposed exile will be over within a week according to the latest reports in Turkey where Istanbul giants Fenerbahce are offering 7million for the unhappy Forest striker. The Dutchman is currently training with his former club NEC Brada, refusing to return to the City Ground in protest at the 3million sale of Kevin Campbell to another Turkish outfit Trabzonspor. Well now it seems the disgraceful van Hooijdonk might get his way and end up in the same country as Campbell afterall - as laded Fenerbahce prepare tempting 2million-a-year salaray offer. A club spokesman confirmed to us this morning that multi-millionaire President Aziz Yizdirim, after missing out on his first target Stan Collymore last week, is now gunning for van Hooijdonk. He said: "We expect Pierre to be playing for Fenerbahce by the second Saturday of the new season. It is right we are making an offer for the player." And manager Manager Dave Bassett looks set to accept the bid after declaring: "Forest won't crumble if van Hooijdonk goes for a decent price." However, he will have to get moving to replace the lost strikeforce. The delay on Campbell's 3million move to Trabzonspor's was cleared up yesterday thanks to a personal cheque from their President Memet Ali Yizmal. The ex-Arsenal star is expected to touch down in Istanbul around lunchtime today after missing the last flight yesterday evening. On Tuesday, Campbell had refused to fly to Trabzon on Tuesday after the the transfer money reach the Forest account in time causing major confusion both here and there.
