United need new blood, says Pally «« 

Gary Pallister reported for training with his new club Middlesbrough today
tipping his old boss Alex Ferguson to delve into the transfer market before
the new season gets under way.
The former United favourite, who rejoined Boro for £2.5 million late last
week, is confident Fergie will get the cheque book out soon.
"I'm sure Alex Ferguson feels he has to make two or three more signings.
Summer signings always give a club a boost and we saw last season that
United looked short in a couple of key positions," said Pallister.
"The manager knows United need a bigger squad and greater strength in depth
to stay ahead of the pack.
"My greatest memory at United is the 1991 European Cup Winners' Cup Final -
the greatest night of my career in fact. To beat a giant club like
Barcelona in a European final was just fantastic, the whole occasion was
just fantastic, including the parties and celebrations after the match. I'm
leaving United with so many good memories."

Sir Bobby Charlton believes England have a great chance of hosting the 2006
World Cup. 
Charlton, who has been in Paris to promote England's bid believes his
campaign group have made a huge impact in the race to stage football's
biggest showpiece.
Sir Bobby said, "Everyone seems to be impressed by our efforts to bring the
event to England in 2006."
"I hope we can get it. It is a major event and it's beyond the capabilities
of some countries to stage it."

The Reds have until August 1 to have their squad in place for the European campaign and registered with UEFA. United have lost almost three weeks of potential time to search for new faces because, after finishing runner-up in the Premiership last season, they face a second qualifying round which brings the transfer deadline for them forward to the beginning of next month instead of August 20. Manager Alex Ferguson would prefer to be able to have his new squad for the new term tied up before the Reds begin their pre-season matches with a trip to Birmingham City on July 25. However, United have endured a frustrating hunt to bolster their pool for the domestic and European push. ``Ideally I would have liked players installed a month ago but there are a lot of clubs finding it difficult signing players at the moment,'' says Fergie. ``We've hit brick walls but we are still plugging away. It's a matter of availability and money. The two have to go hand in hand. I hope we can do something before the European deadline.'' Understandably Ferguson won't want any of his new players cup-tied when the Reds kick-off their Champions' League second qualifying round against Lodz or Kepez on August 12. While the Reds won't name their targets reports linking Ferguson with Aston Villa's Dwight Yorke persist but United haven't contacted the Midlands club. Villa insist that it would take a British-record equalling price of £15m for them to even begin to consider selling the Trinidad and Tobagan international striker who was scored over 60 goals in the last three seasons for Villa. Yorke is due back for pre-season training on Wednesday when Villa boss John Gregory is hoping the sought after 26-year-old will sign a lucrative new five-year contract which awaits him on his return. He's already got two years left on his current Villa Park deal. United could, however, be set to resurrect interest in Parma's Jesper Blomqvist. The Swedish left winger helped destroy the Reds four years ago when he played against them for Gothenburg in the Champions League. Fergie has lamented the fact he didn't push through a deal with AC Milan last year when the initially refused to sell the play but loaned him to Serie A rivals Parma. Milan eventually let him go permanently but the Reds could have better luck if they tried with another attempt to lure him from Italy.

Roy Keane will make his long-awaited return for Manchester United later this month in a pre-season friendly against Birmingham. Keane is back in full training after recovering from his cruciate ligament injury and United manager Alex Ferguson confirmed he will play in the match at St Andrews on July 25. Ferguson also revealed that he could have brought the Republic of Ireland international back towards the end of last season but was determined not to risk him. "He's been doing ever so well and everything we have done with him has been right," he told ClubCall. "The plan has been absolutely perfect. We could have played him at the end of last season but it was not worthwhile in terms of looking at the future. He's back now and we're delighted to have him back." Keane was given the green light by his specialist to resume full training in April and he has been working hard to ensure he will be in peak condition come the start of the new season. The 26-year-old midfielder has been sidelined since he injured himself at Leeds on September 27. His loss was a huge blow to United and is widely considered as being one of the reasons why they finished the season empty-handed. United face Birmingham in the curtain-raiser to the forthcoming campaign before they set off on a tour of Scandinavia. Ferguson revealed that record £10.75million signing Jaap Stam will be allowed to rest after his World Cup efforts with Holland before making his first appearance in a United shirt during that trip. "He won't play against Birmingham but maybe against Brondby in the second game of the tour," he said. c PA Sporting Life

Subject: Keano is back & Muhren on Stam(Teamtalk) To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU Keane plays at St.Andrews Roy Keane will formally complete his rehabilitation from injury in United's first pre-season friendly against Birmingham City later this month. The skipper will return for the July 25 clash at St.Andrews after nearly 10 months out of the game with a serious knee ligament injury. Muhren likes Stam Ex-United star Arnold Muhren believes new signing Jaap Stam is destined to become a winner at Old Trafford. The midfielder who was a major success during his three seasons at the club says Stam is tailor made for the Reds. Muhren said: "He is ideal for English football. Jaap is strong in the air, good at set pieces and is a good marker in one versus one situations. "Jaap had a quiet World Cup. He had some good games and some not so good, although he played quite well against Brazil in the semi-final. "It is a lot of money for a defender but it's a good buy for United." Muhren also thinks that another compatriot, Patrick Kluivert, would be a hit if he were to come to Old Trafford. He said: "He ius one of the best strikers in Europe and would score a lot of goals for them. He didn't have a good year with Milan but United want to buy him."

I really would'nt mind if we got this guy. He had a pretty good world Cup, considering the red card and the suspension. He seems like a very good allround striker. Good on the ball, good in the air and a very cool goalscorer.... Somehow I feel that the wage thing (there it goes again) will be in the way. Hopefully it won't, and he'll agree to play for us and 'only' get paid an enormous amount of money and not an obscene enormous amount.... Bo Siemsen of Copenhagen

From: Helgi Adalsteinsson Subject: BECKHAM'S ON CALL BY HIS BOSSES (Sporting Life) David Beckham will have talks with Glenn Hoddle and Alex Ferguson tomorrow when he returns to pre-season training after his holiday with Posh Spice. Both England coach Hoddle and Manchester United boss Ferguson are sure to deliver an identical message. It will be a combination of a lecture, a warning, and then friendly advice about how to put the red card against Argentina behind him and cope with the new season of club and international football. Hoddle can only communicate by telephone until the England squad regroup for their opening European Championship match in Sweden in September. Ferguson, however, will see Beckham on a day-to-day basis. Said Hoddle: "I spoke to David after the game against Argentina and again the following day, and I will speak with him as soon as he gets back from his break." PS: For those who don't know, Ian Wright signed a 2 year deal with West Ham today.
