To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU Robson plans reunion with Pallister Wednesday, April 15, 1998 Bryan Robson is preparing a summer move for Middlesbrough old boy Gary Pallister in the knowledge that Manchester United are closing in on Dutch international target Jaap Stam. Pallister could find himself on the fringes at Old Trafford once manager Alex Ferguson wraps up a deal for Stam, who is valued at 15million by PSV Eindhoven. United are believed to have offered 10m which would be a world record for a defender. Pallister has proved one of Ferguson's best buys. He moved from Teesside for 2.3m nine years ago and, after a hesitant start, matured into an inspirational central defender for United and England. Robson, hopeful of guiding Middlesbrough back to the Premiership in the coming weeks, sees 32-year-old Pallister, his former Old Trafford team-mate, as a man to help cement their top-flight place next season. Ferguson will be in no rush to let Pallister go and the loyal defender wouldill be due a testimonial next year if he remained at the club. But with Stam's expected arrival Pallister could find his first-team opportunities limited. Just as Steve Bruce was allowed to accept a lucrative offer from Birmingham in 1996, Ferguson would not stand in Pallister's way although the United boss would be looking for fee of around 1m-1.5m.

A deal could be completed by the end of the week. The Dutch club held a board meeting yesterday to decide the future of their 25-year-old defender. After a lengthy debate, it was agreed to accept, in principle, United's offer of 9 million. The directors will hold further talks with the player this week, but it seems that the decision to sell has been taken. Last night, a spokesman suggested that the money offered by the English champions was too much to turn down. "Of course we want to keep Stam, but we don't want to force a player to stay against his will," he said. "There is little point in trying to keep him if he wants to go to Manchester United. We are a normal club and Stam is not a difficult person, so we will not stand in his way. It might be different if United had not made such a good." The transfer fee - a world record for a defender - will represent a profit of 8 million for PSV in two years. He was signed from Willem II for 1 million at the end of 1995. Stam has won 12 caps for Holland after making his debut as a substitute against Germany in 1996. He was voted Dutch player of the year last season and is tipped to become one of the stars of the World Cup finals in France this summer. The player reaffirmed his desire to join United yesterday after the board meeting and suggested that a deal will now be agreed quickly, although he will not complete the move until after the World Cup. "I have had talks and I think things will go through," he said. "There will be further talks in the week to discuss details." It is thought that PSV want the meeting with the player to discuss the suggestion that he might waive his right to 15 per cent of the transfer fee, which he is entitled to under the terms of his contract. That would cost the player 1.5 million, but would appease PSV, who originally wanted 15 million for him. There are still some details to iron out, notably United's suggestion that Jordi Cruyff could be included as a makeweight in the deal, but that is thought to be unlikely, as is the possibility of court action by Stam. Under Dutch law, if PSV prevent him from accepting better employment, he could sue, but that will not now happen, according to the spokesman, because of the decision to sell.

X-From: mforster Wed Apr 15 09:28:44 1998 Date: Wed, 15 Apr 1998 09:28:44 +0100 Reply-To: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" Sender: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" From: mforster Subject: Salient Points from Dr Mark J Forster Ph.D. Fellow Reds, Just a couple of points I want to make 1. Arsenal have NOT yet won the premiership title, even though things look pretty rosy for Wenger and co. right now. Championship form can be regarded as two points per game, United are currently one point behind that rate, Arsenal are two points ahead. If their two games in hand yield four points then it takes one slip, one unexpected Arsenal defeat, for us to get ahead on goal difference. Of course we do need to win the four remaining games and that could be tough if Giggs and Johnsen are out for the remaining games. Remember its never over 'til its over, we have seen enough United games in recent years to know its usually a red shirted roller coaster ride. 2. IF we dont retain our title, I feel uncanny similarities to 1995 when we lacked, through suspension, the guidance and inspiration of a certain enigmatic frenchman and ended up falling at a couple of final hurdles to finish without the league or cup. 3. To Martin Edwards and the PLC. Stop trying to achieve a European cup winning side on a shoestring budget. Alex Ferguson deserves better support than this. Stump up the money to buy Jaap Stam and up the salaries while you are at it, so we can keep our home grown talent as well as attract the world's best to complement them. This is not to condone a mad buy buy buy frenzy but lets ensure we have the real strength in depth we need for the next time an injury crisis comes our way. As for possible signings, we have all summer to speculate ! 4.

X-Sender: giggs@tiac.net X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Pro Version 3.0 (32) Date: Wed, 15 Apr 1998 10:20:19 -0700 From: paul@rarecompany.co.uk Subject: Calypso A Press Release dropped through my door this morning, it reads: "United Calypso" This summer's official Manchester United single, by the fans - for the fans! Now where have I heard that last phrase before - UbF perhaps. It goes on: "United Calypso '98" features real Manchester United fans (Reds United) singing an infectiously catchy pop song - a sizzling new 90s version of a classic song, the "Manchester United Calypso", originally recorded in 1954 but revived on the terraces this season following a TV documentary about United's legendary Busby Babes. "Reds United comprises a crowd of 40 devoted Manchester United fans from all over the UK who won their place at the recording by singing their hearts out down the phone lines in a series of press and broadcast competitions. "With Manchester United on course for an unprecedented Premiership hat-trick, fan excitement will be at boiling point." With United in line for an unprecedented second second place fan excitem,ent has now gone completely off the boil, the pan taken off the burner, washed up and put back in the cupboard until August. The above press release makes me long for the club to be marketed by people who actually know what Manchester United is all about. Paul

MINEFIELD! One wrong step will blow Reds' title hopes apart By Stuart Mathieson Warning...Alex Ferguson MANCHESTER United are walking into a Premiership minefield. And boss Alex Ferguson today warned that another wrong step will blow the Reds' title hopes apart. The United manager has set his players a 12-point maximum from their final four matches of the season to give them a fighting chance of an historic third successive League Championship. ``If we drop any more points then it has gone,'' Fergie declares. ``We have to win our remaining four matches there is no question about that. The players are well capable of doing. We are happy in the knowledge that we can do it. ``If we don't win all four then I don't think we deserve to win the title. I am not putting undue pressure on the players. It's just being realistic. They know the situation at this time of the year. ``Arsenal are not looking like they are going to drop points but we must keep up the pressure. Things could change.'' Fergie's 79-point target sets new title favourites Arsenal the task of taking 14 points from their final six matches. United have to play Newcastle at Old Trafford this Saturday, travel to Crystal Palace nine days later. They return home to play Leeds United before the final Sunday match at Barnsley. The Reds are set to have Ryan Giggs and Ronny Johnsen fit to play at Selhurst Park a week next Monday. Defender Johnsen had been written off for the season after an ankle ligament against Liverpool on Good Friday and Giggs had to be withdrawn before half time with a recurrence of his hamstring trouble. ``Thankfully neither are as bad as we first thought,'' confirms Ferguson. United are still awaiting news from PSV Eindhoven following their record bid for defender Jaap Stam. PSV will hold further talks before the weekend with the 25-year-old when the club's director of football Frank Arnesen returns from South America. A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.
