BREAKING NEWS - Wednesday 18 November 1998 Subject: COWARDLY HODDLE HAS PUT ME IN SEMI-RETIREMENT, CLAIMS COLE Angry Andy Cole has branded Glenn Hoddle "cowardly" for not criticising him to his face when overlooking him for the friendly against the Czech Republic. Cole, who also accused the England coach of putting him into "semi-reirement", is so incensed at being left out by Hoddle that he claims he "will have to think seriously" about whether he would play for the England coach if he were picked in the future. The Manchester United striker is in a rich vein of form, and failing to make the squad to face the Czechs has left him "angry, disappointed and hurt". Cole, who has scored 65 goals in 132 games for United, is furious that Hoddle does not consider him a deadly enough finisher to warrant an England recall. "His (Hoddle) behaviour towards me has been cowardly," raged Cole. "His comments about me are diabolical and disrespectful. "I'm convinced that his reasons for leaving me out of the international squad are not professional ... they're personal. "He has incensed me so much that in the unlikely event of him picking me in the future I'm afraid I would have to think seriously about it."

Wednesday 18 November 1998 Subject: Why Dwight Yorke Is Perfect For United & Why United Are Perfect For Dwight DWIGHT YORKE has surprised a lot of people with his excellent start at Manchester United, but he hasn't surprised me. I worked with him at Aston Villa and, living in the Midlands, I've seen him play many times down the years. I actually spoke to him before he left Villa and told him that United was the place for him to go. I knew he would love it there, I knew the fans would love him and I knew that he would grow and mature. It is the perfect stage for him. The reason why he's succeeded where so many big money strikers have failed at Old Trafford is that they couldn't handle it mentally. But Dwight is so laid-back and, instead of fearing the challenge, he's relished the chance to go and play there. In the past, players have been scared of failure but he couldn't wait to pull on a red shirt and start playing for the club. He's made a great start and scored plenty of goals, but what has really impressed me is not so much the number of goals he's scored, but the number of games in which he's scored. A lot of players score a lot of goals but they get a couple of hat-tricks, and a couple of twos here and there, but Yorke has scored his goals against a variety of teams. He can score against any side, as he's proved in the Premiership and in the Champions League. He has linked up very well with Andy Cole, but he's such a good team player that he could play with anyone. If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in the side, they would be playing equally well together. That was the only thing Dwight lacked at Villa - a real partner. He never really formed a great duo with either Savo Milosevic or Stan Collymore, but both he and Cole are very much team players. I've always thought that two players who play as a pair will do better than two players who play as individuals, and they are proving that. In the season Ron Atkinson and I were in charge at Villa, Yorke was our top scorer and, on the day I left, I called him into my office for a chat. He was the only one of the young lads I spoke to personally and the reason for that was that his attitude was always spot-on. I told him that, if he worked at his game and kept himself right mentally, there was nothing he couldn't achieve because he has got bundles of talent. Another part of his make-up is that he's a smashing guy who is very easy to get along with. Add to that the fact that he recognises that the great players are the hardest working ones and I knew he couldn't go wrong.

Subject: Sheringham rebuke for 'jealous' fans «« Teddy Sheringham has branded the London-based fans who abuse Manchester United players at England matches as "jealous". The former Spurs and Millwall ace has criticised supporters of Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham and says they "can't stand United winning all the time". Sheri, who has been capped 36 times by his country, has blamed those London-based fans for inciting choruses of "stand-up if you hate Man U" during recent internationals. And, as England prepare for tonight's friendly with the Czech Republic, Sheringham - who is not in the squad because of a knee injury - has warned his Manchester United colleagues to expect more of the same. David Beckham, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt are all likely to be involved at some stage in tonight's proceedings and Sheringham has said: "The fans get very jealous and start having a go at the Man United players that play down there." And Sheringham has admitted that United target David Beckham is the main target of their abuse and said: "I think it's absolutely scandalous that they can do that. Even in Luxembourg they were absolutely caning Becks when he was taking corners. That's England supporters when you are 3-0 up. How is that, your own supporters having a go at you?" Sheringham is the second United player to court controversy leading up to tonight's game after colleague Andy Cole launched a stinging retribution for his omission from the latest England squad.

BREAKING NEWS - Wednesday 18 November 1998 Subject: COLE RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT, INSISTS STRETFORD Andy Cole's business manager does not believe the Manchester United striker has blown his chances of an England call-up by criticising Glenn Hoddle in The Sun. Cole was fed up with the England coach's attitude towards him and decided to go public on the matter after Liverpool's out-of-form Robbie Fowler was picked ahead of him for the squad to face the Czech Republic. But his manager Paul Stretford fiercely refuted suggestions that the decision will cost Cole any future international chances to follow the two full caps he has already earned. "That's for other people to decide. We've made our decision, and you've seen the outcome of that," Stretford told Sky Sports News. "We were approached by The Sun. Andy felt enough is enough. "It is not the first occasion Glenn has made disparaging remarks about Andy's ability. He felt it's time to stand up for himself. "I think what you'll find is that Glenn Hoddle has already made it clear in his statement that he doesn't think Andy would be suitable international material for a minimum of 12 months, more likely 18 months. "Glenn's already made his decision on Andy." Stretford believes Cole has proved himself this season with United - enjoying a rich vein of form alongside Dwight Yorke. He added that, perhaps, only a change at managerial level will change Cole's fortunes. "I can't tell you whether Glenn's going to remain England manager forever," Stretford said. "Other managers might have a different set of opinions. "Kevin Keegan has already been put forward as a potential England manager and has come out in the same paper The Sun saying that he feels Glenn is wrong in his decision and that Andy is in the best form of his career." But Stretford is incensed that Hoddle has publicly stated why he has not selected Cole instead of telling the player himself. "I think he is already sending out a challenge for Glenn to get in touch with him face to face and for Glenn to say what his problem is," Stretford told Sky's new digital service. "Glenn's entitled to make any decision he wishes in terms of selection and bring any player he wishes either to play or into the squad without question. "But I think this oversteps the mark when he makes personal observations about a player's ability, who, if you look at his record, those observations are completely unfounded."

Subject: COLE FIRED (365) You'd almost think they had it in for Glenn Hoddle. On the day of a reasonably important friendly against the Czech Republic, one newspaper devotes its front page to Andy Cole, sometime goalscorer for Manchester United, pouring out his exclusive England heartache. As you may remember, Cole has not been selected by Glenn Hoddle for a while. But according to Andy, "His [Hod's] behaviour towards me was cowardly... Why does he discuss with the newspapers," discusses Andy with the newspapers, "what he won't discuss to my face? I repeat the question, is he a man or a mouse?" Hoddle's rejection of Andy has caused a real stir. As a result of this morning's antics, England number two John Gorman has had to spend all day deflecting questions about Andy. Experts believe extensive repetition of the phrase, "There are a lot of players in the country who don't make the squad," has left him at risk from lockjaw. However, Gorman did not deny rumours that Cole and Chris Sutton will be having a game of keepy-uppy as a protest during tonight's match, because no-one asked him about it. In an attempt to help out the England camp, The Fiver phoned Andy's personal manager Paul Stretford and tried to say something cheeky. Did Andy receive a fee for his interview? "Yes, but he gave it all to charity." Great, and what about his proposed letter of complaint to the FA: was that thought up before the interview, or by scheming Fleet Street hacks? "We're not doing private things [just] to discuss it and this is one of those." Er OK. And finally, if Andy was driving late at night and found a bleeding Glenn Hoddle in the hedgerow, would he give him a lift home? "I've no intention of answering such a banal question." Hod, we hope you're reading.
