From: L Harvey    Bouquet for Viollet (MEN)

BOUQUET FOR VIOLLET
By John Prince

City leaders in America have honoured former Manchester United player
Dennis Viollet in a remarkable tribute.  The ex-England striker, who is
fighting serious illness was given the ceremonial keys to the city of
Jacksonville, Florida, where he now lives.  He listened proudly as VIP's
and soccer colleagues told of their respect for him and his achievements.
They praised his work coaching youngsters and professionals in Florida and
elsewhere in  the US.  One speaker said he was "a vital force for the
popularisation of soccer in the States" and a former young player said the
survivor of the Munich air disaster was "one of the best coaches in the
world and one of the best human beings."

His career in Britain was also detailed at the ceremony, where he was
described as "a leading force for the game in Jacksonville."  Dennis, who
played for England, United and Stoke City, later coached in Britain before
settling in America.  He was struck by a brain tumour last year and is
battling to recover after surgery.  His wife, Helen, told the MEN how the
setback wiped out their savings and an appeal was made to help them.  Helen
said today, "It''s a long haul, but Dennis is doing remarkably well.  He
gets so many messages and visits from pals."

Anyone wishing to send a message or donation can write to Dennis at 11250
Old Saint Augustine Rd, 15-157 Jacksonville, Florida 32257, USA.

(Mirror) GLENN LOSES TASTE FOR BECKS DAVID BECKHAM is facing the axe from the England team which will kick off its World Cup campaign against Tunisia on Monday. Darren Anderton is set be handed Beckham's familiar role as right wing-back. And last night it looked unlikely that Manchester United star Beckham will be handed a new role in central midfield. Coach Glenn Hoddle is preparing to play Paul Ince and David Batty together in the centre after fears of a referee's crackdown on tough tackling proved ungrounded. And Beckham's Old Trafford team-mate Paul Scholes has also moved into the front-line of Hoddle's plans as the ideal replacement for dumped Paul Gascoigne in the attacking midfield role. With Graeme Le Saux playing at left wing-back, that leaves no place for Beckham to start the match in Marseille. Hoddle has admitted that he has already decided upon his starting team. The long wait has prompted an intense guessing game in the La Baule hide-away where England are based. But Hoddle's assistant John Gorman yesterday let the cloak of secrecy around the squad slip when he said the players would know the team today. And it seems increasingly likely to be the eleven Hoddle played in a practice match during Thursday's behind-closed-doors training session. That line-up, in Hoddle's favourite 3-5-2 formation, was: Seaman, Southgate, Adams, Campbell, Anderton, Scholes, Ince, Batty, Le Saux, Sheringham, Shearer. That means teenage striker Michael Owen will start as substitute behind Sheringham. Beckham was shifted to an inside role when Anderton returned to the side for the first time in two years against Saudi Arabia at Wembley on May 23. But he was not a huge hit. Anderton, meanwhile, is one of the players who most impresses the England coach. Marcus Lionel van Geyzel. "I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day.

A spokesman for Lens admitted they had received no contact from United since the 23-year-old broke his leg in a freak training ground incident while he prepared for the World Cup last month. Sporting director Jean-Luc Lamarche said: "It's certainly true that there have been contacts between Foe and Manchester United but the financial transaction has not been settled and we think Manchester United will wait until he's had his plaster off before resuming negotiations." One French news agency reported Foe had signed for United on Friday, quoting a fee of 4 million. Foe, who comes out of plaster on June 23 and reckons he will be fully recovered within three days, revealed that he has a verbal agreement with the Reds for a four year deal if he proves his fitness.
