Subject: LIST: Wage bill / New Kit Manchester United have defended their multi-million pound wage bill after figures revealed it rose by 70 per cent last season. The champions paid out over £22.5 million, which put them top of the Premiership salaries scale. The figures are contained in a study, carried out by accountants Deloitte & Touche, which showed Premiership players' wages rose 35 per cent and that the average salary for 1996-97 was just over £200,000. But United's chief executive Martin Edwards stressed the club's wage bill should not be viewed in isolation. He claimed it was important to look at the Old Trafford outfit's overall financial position and their turnover in the same period was a staggering £87.9million. United may have had the heftiest wage bill in the league, but it did not stop them from posting profits of £27.5million last year, which made them the richest club in the world. "As a company you've got to look at the overall picture and in particular your bottom line," he said. "You need to look at the overall position between wages and turnover. "Wages are only a percentage of our overall turnover and our bottom line is very healthy. "We have a policy here, which we think works well, of a ratio of wages to turnover and that's the way we run our business. "Really it's all a question of balance and we've taken this view from before we became a public company. "At the end of the day, I don't want to sound cold, but it's all about sporting success and making profits as well." Former United great Paddy Crerand earned a fraction of what the modern Old Trafford players are taking home now during his heyday in the 1960s, but he is not bothered. He feels they deserve their riches because they have helped make the club the success that it is. "I don't begrudge them one penny and good luck to them I say," he said. "At United the players are well paid, but they should be because they have been so successful. "Clubs are also making big profits and it's the players who are making that money and so I would like to think that they are getting well paid, along with the manager." Crerand added that players had brief careers and that they only earned big money for a few years. "You must remember that they only have a short career, which may only last for 12 to 13 years," he said. He did wish, though, that he could turn back the clock and play again - but not because of the money. "I do wish I was young enough to play, but not for the money," he said. "No, I found that the greatest thrill I ever got was to run out at Old Trafford." REFS TOLD: NEW SHIRT WON'T HURT Premiership referees have given their blessing to Manchester United's latest shirt. The new home top for next season, unveiled today by manufacturers Umbro, is the first to have a zip. Previously such fasteners were considered too dangerous, but Umbro claim their version is safe because it cannot lock and releases when pulled. The zip has been approved by the Premier League and referees spokesman David Elleray claimed they had no problems with the design. "Referees have to be satisfied that the players do not wear anything which constitutes a danger to others," he said. "This will have been submitted for approval and it will have been passed by the referees department of the Premier League." © PA Sporting Life

Berg is concerned that the Dutch international's arrival would force him further down the pecking order of central defenders at Old Trafford. The Norwegian international reckons he is already behind Gary Pallister, Ronny Johnsen and David May, as he has not started a game for United since their 1-0 defeat against Arsenal five weeks ago. United boss Alex Ferguson has dismissed reports that he will sell Pallister back to Middlesbrough, so Berg, who joined the champions for £5million from Blackburn last August, is worried he may become surplus to requirements. "If Jaap Stam comes, that will make another centre-half and I don't believe that Manchester United will keep five centre-halves next season," he said. "If he comes, that will mean somebody will be going and when you're ranked fourth, then anything can happen. "I wish to stay with Manchester United, but I realise that I can be sold and I'm afraid that may happen." Berg has become frustrated sitting on the United bench in recent weeks. The 29-year-old does not think his lack of first-team football will keep him out of the Norwegian World Cup squad, but claims that he may still leave United because he wants to play regularly. "I want to be with Manchester United, but I have to play more next season than I have this season," he said. "If the situation doesn't change, maybe I will have to leave, as I don't like sitting on the bench. "The stupid thing in all of this is that I feel in top form." © PA Sporting Life

X-Sender: jackit@indigo.ie X-Mailer: QUALCOMM Windows Eudora Light Version 3.0.5 (32) Date: Fri, 17 Apr 1998 17:50:45 +0100 Reply-To: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" Sender: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" From: J Callaghan Subject: David May superstar Title Will Make It May Day By Stuart Mathieson David May ... wants to see Reds win championship title again DAVID May has resigned himself to the fact he won't add another championship medal to his Manchester United collection next month. But that doesn't mean he's waving the Premiership title white flag. The central defender will fall short of the Premier League's ten game requirement for a title winners medal because of injuries - even if he plays a part in the final vital four games. It presents the 27-year-old with an ironic end of term quest. He may go down in terrace folklore as having ``more medals than Alan Shearer.'' But he won't be extending his personal silverware advantage over the Newcastle striker even if he helps United towards their third successive title by keeping the England goalscorer quiet at Old Trafford tomorrow. ``I am not bothered if I don't get a medal so long as Manchester United win the title,'' says May. ``If we start next season as the champions it won't worry me that I didn't pick up a souvenir of it. ``I'd have liked three medals for winning it three times on the bounce but I'd be happy just with the bonus of knowing I've played a small part in achieving that. ``To be honest, after the season I've had and not playing those ten matches I wouldn't deserve a medal anyway. However, that won't stop me playing to the best of my ability and fighting tooth and nail to win it. ``I'm a Manchester United player and as such I want us to win the Premiership. It's the same for all the players no matter whether you've played 30-odd matches or a handful. That's the spirit at Old Trafford. ``We all want to do our bit no matter how little it ends up being. There are a number of players in my position like Raimond Van der Gouw, Jordi Cruyff and Brian McClair, for example, who've all contributed somewhere along the way but won't qualify for a medal. ``However, anyone who is chosen to play in the remaining matches will do the same as I would and do their very best for United.'' The hunger inside the Old Trafford dressing room to win a history-making three successive titles epitomised by May is matched by the burning desire to disappoint the `We hate Man U' faction in the country. ``Arsenal haven't won it by a long way,'' says May. ``It's not over and the anti-United feeling is just winding us up in the dressing room. ``We know that feeling is out there and we've read the tabloid papers that are publishing faxes from people who want to see Arsenal win the title. ``All that is doing is getting us more wound up. It's all rubbish but we want to shut those critics up. It would be nice to ram it back down their throats. ``You can tell there is a definite feeling against United. You could feel the difference when we played Blackburn recently. ``Everyone at Ewood was wound up on and off the park. They were desperate to beat us. There wasn't that same atmosphere there when Arsenal played on Monday night. ``But they are doing it because we are the best. We've proved that consistently. ``Nothings over yet. If you came into our dressing room now the morale is just as high as it was in the early part of the season.''

X-Sender: jackit@indigo.ie X-Mailer: QUALCOMM Windows Eudora Light Version 3.0.5 (32) Date: Fri, 17 Apr 1998 17:43:01 +0100 Reply-To: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" Sender: "Manchester United Football Club (soccer)" From: J Callaghan Subject: Pally on Owen The Gary Pallister Column Features 5 I NEVER HAD A GO AT OWEN I would like to set the record straight this week on the events during the game with Liverpool at Old Trafford, particularly the ones involving Michael Owen. Chiefly, I would like to make it absolutely crystal-clear that there was no verbal aggravation towards Michael from myself during the game. And if anyone actually asked Michael about the subject then he’d tell you the same thing. The suggestion that I had been winding up young Michael was ridiculous and offensive. It was upsetting to me that a caller, or more appropriately a mischief-maker, called up David Mellor on 606 and said that things were being said between Michael and myself all afternoon, most of them unprintable. That is utter claptrap and it has been both upsetting and frustrating for me to hear that allegation live on air. There was nothing detrimental exchanged between us at all. People who’ve known me over the years know I'm not that type. I’ve been in the game a long time and I have had nothing but praise for the way that Michael has handled all the attention and pressure of being at a big club. It is beyond belief that people think I’m going to try and wind up a kid – especially at my age! It was quite an eventful afternoon for Michael, scoring a goal and then getting sent off, wasn’t it? Peter Schmeichel and myself had a bit of a communication breakdown for the goal. We both thought the other was going to go for the ball and so we both hesitated. We ended up in no-man's land and Michael, having a natural eye for goal, saw the opportunity immediately and used his pace to nip in and score. He got sent off later of course, but I think it was the occasion that was probably a contributory factor in those two out-of-character tackles. United-Liverpool games are high-profile clashes. Both teams were really up for it and Michael was no different to any other player. His enthusiasm just got the better of him, because he’s not a malicious player. Michael is one of eight strikers in the England squad to face Portugal on Wednesday, but if pushed I still think Glenn Hoddle will start with the favourite pairing of Alan Shearer and Teddy Sheringham. Now that we’re so close to the World Cup I think the manager is going to have to start looking to play his strongest team. We’re now only two months away from the first game and when June comes around England will want to pick players who are tried and trusted. That’s why Alan Shearer stands out as the one who’ll carry out the main threat. Glenn Hoddle’s been building a pattern of play over the last couple of years and Teddy and Alan have been at the forefront of his thinking. In a perfect world I expect Alan and Teddy to start England’s first World Cup game up front, because they understand each other's game so well and have proved in Euro 96 they can work together on the big stage. But Owen will surely have a part to play in France. He’s a tremendous talent and, with his speed and goalscorer’s instincts, will be a great asset to have on the bench. Gary Pallister was talking
