Subject:      The Bosses words...


With all the hysteria and worry running through the hearts and minds of many

REDS at the moment you may find some solice in something the Boss said on

Sky Sports on Saturday morning, this was before the game but it still holds,

he was asked if he thought United had done enough to win the league and his

reply was cooley,

       "Naw, we'll'a win it when we normally do" !!! 

                - has to be a classic quote for the Fergie archives.

There's plenty of time REDS...........

Subject: New training complex?

Deja vu here. Remember how Ince and kan Kan were sold to finance the

previous complex?

Manchester United want new training complex

     MANCHESTER, England, March 17 (Reuters) - Manchester United are

seeking planning permission to build a new 14.3 million pounds ($23.8

     million) training complex.

     The cost of the facilities, to be built on a site at Carrington, near

Manchester, would come from United's own cash resources, the club said on


     Work is to begin as soon as planning approval is obtained, the club

said. The first phase is expected to be completed by July 1999 with the final

     handover in July 2000.

     The planned facilities include nine full size pitches plus one

extended pitch with undersoil heating and an adjoining rehabilitation area.

A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas.

Subject: Pete back for April 1


  PETER Schmeichel is set to defy all the medical odds

  and make a sensational return. The giant Manchester

  United keeper was ruled out for five weeks after

  crumpling in a challenge on Arsenal's Dennis


  First reports indicated serious hamstring trouble that

  could have wrecked the rest of his season. But the

  damage might not now be as shocking as was feared

  when he was driven away from Old Trafford in severe


  And now Schmeichel is confident of getting the

  go-ahead for a quick comeback after tests at United's

  training ground this morning.

  Schmeichel has even phoned Danish boss Bo Johanson

  to ask to be included in his squad for next Wednesday's

  friendly against Scotland.

  He is ruled out of tomorrow night's Champions League

  quarter-final with Monaco at Old Trafford. But the clear

  signs now are that Schmeichel will be back for the

  semi-final on April 1 if United force out the French.

  And, of course, the critical Premiership matches against

  Blackburn, Liverpool and Newcastle in a hectic two

  week programme.

  It's a massive boost for United as they attempt to patch

  up fallen stars like Ronny Johnsen, Phil Neville and

  Gary Pallister.

  And they got even better news yesterday with Ryan

  Giggs also going flat out for a return tomorrow night.

  Giggs is close to full fitness and boss Alex Ferguson

  says: "Ryan is running full out and was involved in the

  football side of training yesterday. We will wait and see

  if there are any reactions before deciding on

  Wednesday. We have to be sure."

A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas.

                By David Anderson, PA Sport

                Raimond van der Gouw is ready to step out of Peter

                Schmeichel's shadow and into the firing line for

                Manchester United.

                Van der Gouw will deputise for the injured Denmark

                international goalkeeper in tomorrow's European

                Champions' League quarter-final return match against

                Monaco at Old Trafford.

                The Dutchman will make only his third start of the season

                after Schmeichel tore his hamstring in Saturday's defeat

                against Arsenal.

                Van der Gouw, also United's goalkeeping coach,

                admitted it was not easy being Schmeichel's understudy.

                "One of the problems being in the shadow of someone

                like Peter is you don't get much opportunity to play," he


                "You're never sure how to train. You train knowing

                you're not playing, but then find yourself in the side."

                Van der Gouw, who will be 35 next week, played in last

                season's semi-final first leg in Germany against Borussia

                Dortmund and will hope that is not an omen.

                United lost 1-0 and have also been beaten in the two

                matches he has played this season.

                Manager Alex Ferguson has revealed Schmeichel's injury

                is not as bad as first feared and that he will be out for

                three weeks instead of five.

                Schmeichel injured his hamstring when he went up for a

                United corner in the final minutes of Saturday's match,

                but Ferguson will not curb his attacking instincts.

                Schmeichel scored from a corner against Rotor

                Volgograd in the UEFA Cup in 1995 and Ferguson said:

                "Peter's done it in the past and on one occasion it paid


                "When you're chasing games you must take risks and

                Manchester United do that."

                Ferguson claimed Ryan Giggs, who has missed United's

                last six matches with a hamstring problem, is nearing full

                recovery and may risk him against Monaco. "I'll make

                the decision tomorrow morning," he said.

                Ferguson hopes Nicky Butt will return from his calf

                strain, while Ronny Johnsen (calf) and Phil Neville

                (hamstring) are doubtful, but Gary Pallister (back) is out.

                Paul Scholes took a knock on his knee against the

                Gunners but is expected to shrug it off and play.

Subject: No Euro Glory For United -- Best (Carling)

Man United 17 Mar 1998


George Best believes Alex Ferguson will again fail in his bid to make

Manchester United the kings of Europe this season.

The Northern Ireland legend insists United are short of a ball-winner -

though he says Ferguson will lead his side to Champions' League glory one


Best scored in United's 4-1 European Cup final defeat of Benfica in 1968,

the only time Europe's premier club crown has gone to Old Trafford.

United have qualified for the Champions' League in four of the past five

seasons and their best performance was as losing semi-finalists last year.

Best, 51, said: ``It's not a question of if United win the European Cup but

of when - but I don't think it will be this season.

``Peter Schmeichel is not at the peak he enjoyed the last couple of years

and I think United might be short in the ball-winning department.

``We had Nobby Stiles and Paddy Crerand but Roy Keane, who does that job for

United now, is out and Nicky Butt's also been injured.

``Up front, the team may just be a little short of the kind of fire-power

needed to win the big one. And overall, though United have some great

players, they don't have a genius.''

United's lead at the top of the FA Carling Premiership was cut to six points

by Arsenal after the Gunners' 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Saturday. Arsene

Wenger's team also have three games in hand but Best is confident his former

club will retain the League title.

``They've made it hard for themselves but truthfully I'd still prefer to be

in United's position than Arsenal's,'' Best told Channel 4's Under The Moon,

to be screened tomorrow night.

``If I was a betting man - which of course these days I'm not - I'd have my

money on United for the title.''

   Marcus Lionel van Geyzel.

Subject:    Phil on one leg

                        Man United 17 Mar 1998


Manchester United defender Phil Neville is so

determined to be fit for Monaco that he claims he would play on one leg!

Neville is one of five United stars hoping to

recover in time to face Jean Tigana's side in tomorrow

night's Champions' League quarter-final second leg at Old Trafford.

The England international came off during

Saturday's defeat against Arsenal when he felt a

recurrence of his hamstring problem.

Neville claims Nicky Butt (calf), Paul Scholes

(knee), Ryan Giggs (hamstring) and Ronny Johnsen

(calf) are all as desperate as he is to play.

Manager Alex Ferguson will delay selecting his side

until the last moment to give them every chance of recovering.

``I picked up a hamstring strain at Sheffield

Wednesday and it tightened up a little bit in the second

half against Arsenal on Saturday so I came off,'' he said.

``I would play on one leg against Monaco if I have

to because Wednesday is that big a game I have got to be fit.

``It's the European Cup quarter-final and I think

everybody will try to be fit.''

Gary Pallister (back) and Peter Schmeichel

(hamstring) are ruled out of the tie and Neville feels

United's crippling injury list is down to their hectic schedule.

``Over the last few months we've been travelling

round the world and it catches up with you,'' he said.

``I think most of these injuries we're suffering at

the moment are purely through fatigue and it's one

of the prices we are paying for being at the top and playing so many games.''

United are favourites to progress to the

semi-finals, but Neville is well aware that an away goal for

Monaco would change all that.

``It's crucial that Monaco don't score,'' he said.

``If we keep a clean sheet I think we will go

through to the next round, but they have got some great

attacking players and we will have to be on our toes.''

In his case, just the five.

Subject:    Keane Update


>One question - Anyone have a reliable Keano update please ?

Yes, he was interviewed in an Irish sunday newspaper this weekend. He said

that he would hope to play in the European Cup Final (if we get there), but

he said he would need 2/3 games before that to be able to. So I'd say he'll

be availible for the last 3 games of the season.
