Subject: UNITED ENJOY FAIRYTALE NIGHT IN DENMARK Group D: Brondby 2 Manchester United 6 MANCHESTER UNITED hit Brondby for six in Copenhagen to ignite their European campaign inexplosive fashion. Alex Ferguson's side were simply awesome in the Parken Stadium as they overran the Danes to record their best ever victory in the Champions League. In their two previous Group D games, United had played well only to be pegged back for draws but last night there was no stopping them. Ryan Giggs began the rout when he scored after just 100 seconds and United dominated the entire game. The victory, which was United's first in the competition in 11 months, puts them in a commanding position at the top of the group. Peter Schmeichel returned from his stomach muscle injury to face his former club, althoug Jaap Stam took the goal-kicks. United were without six first team players, but that made little difference to Ferguson's formidable squad. He had a potential problem at right midfield with the suspension of Nicky Butt and David Beckham, but he moved Giggs across to that flank while Paul Scholes partnered Roy Keane in the centre of the park. Giggs was superb and scored the first two goals before he came off just after the hour. And in the land of Hans Christian Andersen, Wesley Brown's fairytale United career continued as he made his European debut at right back. And it was the newest of Fergie's fledglings who helped create United's first goal. Keane found him as he made a great run down the right but there seemed little danger when he crossed into the middle. However, Brondby goalkeeper Mogens Krogh fumbled the ball after a mix-up with Kenneth Rasmussen and Giggs knocked the ball into the unguarded net. Andy Cole came close to a second when his angled shot was touched away for a corner by Krogh, while Brondby tried to claw their way back in wet conditions more suited to a rainy night in Manchester and Soren Colding stung Schmeichel's fingers with a fierce 25-yard drive which he held at the second attempt. But there was no stopping United, who were playing Danish opposition in Europe for the first time, and after 21 minutes they made it 2-0. Jesper Blomqvist sent over a high cross from the left and Giggs rose unchallenged to head home from six yards out. Six minutes later it was 3-0 when Giggs found Yorke, who in turn supplied Cole. He applied a great finish from the edge of the area. Thomas Lindrup was booked after 34 minutes for taking a free-kick without the referee's permission and his second yellow card means he misses the return match at Old Trafford in two weeks' time. Kim Daugaard stepped up to take the free-kick at the second attempt and his 20 -yard shot skimmed off the greasy surface and underneath Schmeichel. That goal gave the Danes a glimmer of a hope but it did not last for long. After the interval, Giggs and Cole combined and almost set up Yorke but the ball was played just too far in front of him. But United did not have much longer to wait for their next goal. It came in the 55th minute through Keane who fired home with a shot from outside the area which went in off a post. But United were far from finished and Cole was denied a fifth by Krogh. On the hour though, the Reds stretched their lead to 5-1 when Phil Neville sent over a pinpoint cross which Yorke headed home for his seventh goal in ten United appearances. That was the signal for Ferguson to bring off Cole and Giggs and he replaced them with Jordi Cruyff and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. And within two minutes Solskjaer made it 6-1 when he shot home. United's travelling support of 1,600 fans were in party mood and they chanted the name of their manager as he handed teenage midfielder Mark Wilson his first team debut when he came on for Yorke in the 65th minute. Brondby pulled back a consolation goal in the final minute through striker Ebbe Sand, but there was no denying it was United's night. And that result leaves United at the top of Group D after Bayern Munich beat Barcelona 1-0. Stefan Effenberg scored the vital goal on the stroke of half-time, and it means United now have five points, while both Bayern and Barcelona have four.

Subject: Brondby match report(Telegraph) Brondby (1) 2 Man Utd (3) 6 Copyright, from Telegraph MANCHESTER United trampled, or rather splashed, their way all over Brondby in their most impressive performance yet in the Champions' League to head their group. Three goals in the first half-hour and another three immediately after the interval left the Danes gasping.  Heavy rain throughout the day made the pitch heavy in the centre but fast down the flanks, and with Ryan Giggs in elusive form on the right side of midfield, there was no holding a team intent on emulating the European Cup achievement of their famous forebears. The result was United's best away win in Europe since they beat Borussia Dortmund 6-1 in the Inter-City Fairs Cup in 1964-65. The Danes eventually hit back when Kim Daugaard made it 3-1 from a free-kick in the 34th minute, thanks in part to a blunder by Peter Schmeichel on his return in the United goal. That was nothing, however, compared with the error that had allowed United to go in front inside two minutes. Wes Brown, making his European debut at right-back, advanced into empty space and sent an early cross speculatively into the Brondby penalty area. Kenneth Rasmussen, one of the central defenders, managed to confuse keeper Mogens Krogh, the ball bobbling off the two of them straight to a grateful Giggs. With an almost casual touch, Giggs placed the ball in an empty net, unable to believe his good fortune. Brondby finally began to brighten the humour of their supporters. Soren Colding, their captain and right-back, smashed a 20-yard drive that was too powerful for Schmeichel to hold at the first attempt, obliging him to dive hurriedly on the rebound. Yet in the next minute United went further in front. A perfectly pitched cross from Jesper Blomqvist cleared the goalmouth across to the right, where Giggs, several inches shorter than Brian Jensen, the left-back, rose high above him to head the most elegant of goals. Still pressing, Paul Scholes saw a cross-shot from the right fly just wide of the far post and now United snatched their third. Giggs, whose delicate footwork was proving a nightmare for the Danes, stroked a pass from the halfway line and Andy Cole, accelerating clear, steered his shot wide of the advancing Krogh. Further misfortune then came Brondby's way. Per Nielsen, their other central defender who has played in 26 European ties, suffered a blow in the face, which eventually forced him to leave the field. By now Brondby had also lost Brian Jensen, carried off with a leg injury, but some coherence was emerging. Thomas Lindrup, having been booked for an exaggerated gesture for taking a free -kick too early, had his satisfaction in sweeping the ball low past the right side of the defensive wall. Diving to meet the shot at the foot of his left-hand post, Schmeichel misjudged the slippery ball and it cannoned off his shoulder into the side netting. Now Brondby at last began to play as they really can, but half-time arrived with the probability that they had left it far too late. They had indeed. United swept another three goals past them in the opening quarter of an hour of the second-half, enabling them thereafter to enter a tactical stroll. Few United teams, in recent years or in the illustrious early days of Europe, have played with more assurance. The fourth goal came from Roy Keane as he forged through from the halfway line, took a return pass from Dwight Yorke and shot in off the left-hand post. Then came perhaps the best goal of the match as Phil Neville raced down the left flank and curled a high cross that dropped just beyond the far post for Yorke to send his header through the goalkeeper's grasp at close range. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having come on in place of Cole, scored with his second touch, a first -time drive as Yorke laid back a pass from Keane. Bronby then managed to grab a late consolation through Ebbe Sand.

Subject: United's win against Brondby To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU United's win against Brondby puts them back in title hunt Copyright © 1998 Agence France-Presse PARIS (Oct 21, 1998 - 17:38 EDT) - Manchester United reignited their Champions League campaign in style with a sterling 6-2 win over Denmark's Brondby in Copenhagen to stroll to the top of Group D. Group of Death rivals Bayern Munich edged out Barcelona 1-0 in Germany, leaving United sitting pretty at the top of the group, despite draws in their opening two matches. United, desperate to win the trophy for the first time since 1968, enjoyed a dream start, taking the lead inside two minutes at the Parken Stadium, where they had won 6-0 in a pre-season friendly. Young full back Wes Brown, standing in for the injured Denis Irwin, escaped down the flank and whipped over a tantalizing cross which Brondby keeper Mogens Krogh failed to gather and Ryan Giggs promptly slammed the ball home. Galvanized by their early breakthrough, United promptly went two up, Swedish winger Jesper Blomqvist finding the head of Giggs for a second goal on 21 minutes. Six minutes later, it was virtually all over as United moved emphatically into a 3-0 lead, Dwight Yorke running powerfully through the Brondby defense before finding strike partner Andy Cole, making his first start in the tournament this season. Cole gleefully drove home. United, despite missing suspended England men David Beckham and Nicky Butt, were outclassing the Danes in all departments. But Brondby did pull one back in the 34th minute when Kim Daugaard crashed in a freekick which Peter Schmeichel, playing against his former club after overcoming a stomach injury, couldn't hold. Any thoughts the Danes might have had of staging a second-half comeback were dashed when Roy Keane notched United's fourth 10 minutes after the restart. Yorke then headed in Phil Neville's cross on the hour and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer completed the six-pack after 62 minutes. Ebbe Sand made it 6-2 in the dying seconds. Bayern, meanwhile, tore into Barcelona in the knowledge that only a win would keep them alive after defeat in Copenhagen and a home draw with United. The Bavarians, three times European champions and urged on by a 55,000 crowd at the Olympic Stadium, missed a hatful of chances with Mario Basler firing wide almost straight from the kickoff. Brazilian dangerman Giovane Elber and Hasan Salihamidic wasted further efforts but Elber, a hat-trick hero for Brazil against Ecuador last week, turned provider seconds before the break, heading into the path of Stefan Effenberg, who bundled the ball in from close range. And that proved the only goal of the match. Bayern's previously suspect defense was well-marshalled by German international Jens Jeremies and a defensively-minded Barcelona rarely managed to threaten.
