Diary August 16-19 1998:
Pt 3 Match Day, lunch with Linda, Simplenet meet with Paul Hinson
Morning arrived August 18th 1998 and a 9 am breakfast. The full works beans
fried bread sausage, would Eric be enjoying the same? I doubt it! Taxi to
the Cliff, where?? what is this cliff?? inquired Mr Sahid. He did know of
Manchester United but wanted to take me round the corner from Chester Rd to
OT! After a short discussion I showed him the way and 20 mins later we
arrived at The Cliff in brilliant sunshine. Simply amazing weather for
Manchester. The time was 10am and a small crowd was gathered to see the
arrival of Giggsy in a large dark windowed 4 wheel drive, it dropped him off
and then shot off again. Roy Keane in his self driven sports car drove
smartly in. David May and Dinnis all arrivedin seperate cars. All of them
disappeared into the far building and then re-appeared 10 mins later in
training strip. All 4 jumped into the same car and drove off to another
closed training session. We had hoped for a cliff or Eric training session
but it was not to be. The England boys including Becks & Andy were all down
South with Hoddle, they would first be back later for the match. Norweigens
and Schmeiks were all away on International duty. So Barry would not be able
to speak Danish to Peter!
Chatting to a few of the other onlookers I met Asif who was very friendly
and told me he was there in the hope of seeing Eric training, just like the
old days. No luck I'm afraid so Asif offered to drive me round for a while,
we could then pop back later for the players return. We had a fast
sightseeing trip round Manchester Centre past Joe Bloggs Clothing and the
town centre where it had been bombed. Interestingly Asif told me of his
younger brother who had been playing for Manchester United youth team and
had broken his leg. He was now recovered and trying to make it back to
UNITED but with difficulty. He had been top scorer for the junior league but
I do not have his name, sorry.
NOTE: Asif if you read this please get in touch by email....
We then drove to OT to grab a few souvenirs for the family and myself? :)
I asked for anything with David Beckham for Michelle 12 years old at home,
SOLD OUT nothing at all!! I finished up buying a Becks necklace at one of
the local stalls instead. I picked up a couple of cheap year books for a
fiver, 95/96 96/97, a badge and also a black polo with the new logo 20
Ok it's smart, all the staff and players seem to wear it around OT.
We drove on to The Throstles, time 10.40 am and of course it was "closed",
the good old licensing laws again! Banging on the door Kieron came out and
let Asif and I in for a chat and small light refreshment! Asif was on coke
and driving, he then whisked us back to the Cliff where we arrived at 12.15
to a large crowd gathered by this time. There was even an ice cream van
parked just outside to make a few extra bob on the popularity of Manchester
Great, Asif had judged this to perfection, out came Roy Keane and proceeded
to sign for everyone. Ryan was not to be seen, Dinnis jumped in his car and
drove off, obviously in a hurry. Took a photo of Roy signing which should
appear on the site. Atmosphere was relaxed and Roy signed for half an hour.
I had an appointment with Linda so Asif drove me back to the Throstles at
Lunch had been arranged for 1pm so Barry rushed in to find Linda relaxed and
sitting at a table accompanied by her coke! Sorry only 3/4 mins late? Quick
greeting and then settled down with Linda and we started our 2 hour+
Lying on the table in front me was my match ticket
East Stand Upper, Block E236, Row15 Seat90.
Thanks Linda again for being such a wonderful lady! :)))))))))))))
We chatted about the museum, Munich, Eddie Coleman (sorry Linda I had
forgotton to press that button on the Manchester-Net). We also spoke of the
team, the website match reports and other memories. We had a great couple of
hours and several drinks, we even just had time to eat our delicious
Throstle plaice and chips! Linda now had an appointment with Paul Windridge,
Mick Meade and Helen Viollet. We said our farewells and grabbed a taxi as
time was flashing by.
No one had arrived yet so I decided to shoot off to OT for an hour or so.
This was a wise move as I discovered Alex and Becks signing autographs for a
large crowd in front of South Stand. Alex was protected by two enormous
bouncers one on each side. There was also plenty of police presence. Many
fans were wearing Eric gear and there should be evidence of that when the
photos come back.
Now back to the Nest [I have since discovered that I missed Mike Dobbin
(sorry Mike) who had popped in at the nest around 1630!]. By the time I was
back it was around quarter to 5'ish and standing around was Niel Sharp soon
to be joined by Dobbo, girlfriend by his side. Alan had booked the Princess
Hotel that night, I officially declare here and now that Alan must be in
LOVE. I can also see why, so good luck to you Sausage Man!!. We all got
rounds in and I for one had to take it easy having been around bars most of
the day! Alan was on "Muel" is that a new type of Mick Meade drink????? I do
not remember Mick ordering this one in Copenhagen!
Soon the arrival of Paul Hinson a big hug and pics were taken to witness the
FIRST MEETING of any 2 persons on the Simplenet Web Team:
Fact of life: Bill, Barry, Paul, Sam and Diana have never met each other!!
The pub was filling up with LIST REDS here are the names and if I forgot
anyone I am very sorry: Pete & Hal Hargreaves, Paul Busby, Billy Read, Pat
Jennings, Richard Martin, Tony Smith, Paul Scully names all to be added to
the previous mentioned. It was like a Whos-Who of the mailing list and we
all remained until 6.30 when it was time for the 20 mins brisk walk to The
Theatre Of Dreams.
Match time 20.00 would be prieviewed by other happenings so an early
entrance was required .... more to come tomorrow...
Pt 4/5 Day 3/pt2 The Testimonial Match

SCHMEICHEL WARNS AGAINST POLISH BACKLASH
"We Must Be Mentally Prepared To Finish The Job"
Says Danish Keeper
LKS Lodz v Manchester United Preview
PETER SCHMEICHEL knows from bitter experience that Manchester United cannot
take anything for granted against LKS Lodz tonight. United all but booked
their place in the Champions' League following their 2-0 victory at Old
Trafford in the qualifying round first leg two weeks ago, but the Dane knows
all too well that ties which are apparently dead can spring back into life.
During his days at Brondby, he was on the receiving end of a second leg
thrashing when it seemed that the tie was done and dusted. The Danes won the
first leg against Sportul Bucharest 3-0 at home, but went out on penalties
after crashing by the same scoreline in the return game in Romania.
So even though Lodz were brushed aside in Manchester, the big goalkeeper
knows it could be a different story in Poland. He said: "We hammered Sportul
Bucharest 3-0 in Copenhagen and it could have been eight or ten,'' he said.
''But then, in the return leg, they hammered us 3-0 and there was such a big
difference in them, even though they were the same players. That was a bad
experience for me, but also a good one because it taught me that these
things can happen.
''We must say to ourselves mentally that we are not there yet. The way Lodz
reacted to our goals at Old Trafford suggested to me that they may have more
in the bag at home than we think they have and we must be prepared for
Schmeichel, though, is confident that his teammates will be professional
enough to finish the job tonight.
"We are more than capable of going out and getting the right result and I
believe we will,'' he said.
Manager Alex Ferguson feels his side is improving with each game, but he,
too, is wary of Lodz's possible schizophrenic character. ''What we saw of
Lodz in the first game may not bear any resemblance to what we see
tonight,'' he said. ''How we handle their attacking threat will be important
for us and as long as we don't do anything silly we should be alright. We've
been to places like this before and I think it would need a bad performance
from us to cause any real problems."
Jaap Stam will be back in the firing line tonight aiming to prove his
critics wrong. He has not made the most convincing start to his career in
England and to make matters worse he missed Saturday's game at West Ham with
a pulled thigh muscle.
He has returned ahead of schedule though and is keen to prove he is no £10m
flop. He said: ''Nobody wants to start like I have, but I'm back now and
that's the main thing. I'm just focused on this game as it's crucial that
Manchester United are in the Champions' League."
The Dutchman will be joined in United's back four by Phil Neville, who
replaces his injured brother, Gary, who tore a hamstring against the Hammers
at the weekend. Neville junior said: ''It is often the case in football
where you get the chance through somebody else's misfortune. This time, it
happened to my brother."
Ferguson has no other injury worries, but Dwight Yorke will not be available
as he didn't complete his move from Aston Villa in time to be eligible for
Manchester United (probable): Schmeichel, P Neville, Irwin, Johnsen, Stam,
Butt, Keane, Giggs, Beckham, Scholes, Cole.
LKS Lodz, (possible): Wyparlo, Pawlak, Bendkowski, Krysicek, Jakubowski,
Kos, Niznik, Wyciszkiewicz, Lennart/Darlington, Wieszczycki, Zuberek.

Subject: United Favourites (ET)
United shaping up well for a smooth passage
ON ARRIVING here in Lodz yesterday, Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester
United, was introduced to one of Poland's most famous sons. Jan Tomaszewski,
rashly dubbed a "clown" by Brian Clough just before denying England at
Wembley in 1973, now commentates on local television and will tonight follow
the fortunes of his old club, LKS Lodz, against Ferguson's visitors. "You
did a good job back in '73," smiled Ferguson, as proud a Scot as they come.
Henry Winter reports from Lodz.
Ferguson has reasons to be cheerful. Despite the slow start to United's
domestic season, which Ferguson puts down to players recovering from their
World Cup exertions, United know they should qualify comfortably for the
Champions' League proper. If they keep their shape, concentration and
composure against a modest LKS side, the two goals netted at Old Trafford
should see them safely through.
Although missing Dwight Yorke, ineligible until the round-robin stage, and
the injured Gary Neville, United should be too strong, particularly with Roy
Keane gaining in sharpness by the outing. Jaap Stam returns following his
thigh injury, while Paul Scholes is likely to support Andy Cole. LKS,
meanwhile, have their problems: Rodrigo Carbone has returned to Rio in a
huff while suspension claims Tomasz Cebula, arguably the Poles' only
penetrative player at Old Trafford.
Tomaszewski, his physique only slightly affected by the passing of a quarter
of a century, believes that United should progress without mishap. "The
difference between Manchester and LKS is the same as between Heathrow and
Lodz airports," he said.
"I'm not speaking as a Polish patriot. I'm speaking as a realist. I don't
want to be taken as a Polish idiot therefore I can't say LKS have any chance
of beating Manchester. LKS were so frightened in the first leg. Even if
there were orders for the players to go forward, they couldn't. Their legs
It is hard to believe that Marek Dziuba's side, reportedly on £50,000 to
win, will be as negative at home. "We know it is in the Polish nature to
fight very hard," Ferguson said.
Yet the atmosphere will hardly be intimidating with the municipal stadium
reduced, in keeping with UEFA's all-seat policy, from 33,000 to 7,000 (of
whom 1,000 will be noisy United fans). Inflated ticket prices, twice the
usual level, have also dulled demand, although the Poles are interested
enough in their English visitors judging by the crowd outside United's
English football has always featured prominently in Polish thoughts.
Tomaszewski remembered his trip to Wembley as a watershed for Polish
football in the Seventies. "The English players were stars," recalled
Tomaszewski, whose agile goalkeeping continually frustrated Alf Ramsey's
"We were just hungry. We soon realised we shouldn't be frightened. We had
nothing to lose. England had everything to lose. The draw at Wembley gave us
self-belief. I said to myself that if I have played at Wembley and kicked
England out of the World Cup, then we are a good team." (The ensuing two
World Cups proved that).
"Brian Clough called me a clown before the game but he came up afterwards
and shook my hand. The English showed then - and are still showing - that
they know how to behave if a match does not go their way. With Brazil or
other Latin American countries, if you win you are a king but if you lose
you are a pauper."
Someone who is definitely not a pauper, Martin Edwards, explained yesterday
why his club disappointed Tottenham Hotspur over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "None
of our players will be pushed through the door if they don't want to leave,"
said the United chairman.
"We agreed a deal with Spurs that was satisfactory for the club but when we
put it to Ole he wanted to stay and fight for his place. We are quite happy
with that and closed the transfer."
Manchester United (probable): Schmeichel; Irwin, Stam, Johnsen, P Neville;
Beckham, Keane, Butt, Giggs; Scholes; Cole.
LKS Lodz (probable): Wyparlo; Pawlak, Bendowski, Krysiak; Darlington,
Niznik, Kos, Wyciszkiewicz, Zuberek; Bugaj (or Matys), Wieszczycki.

Subject: Sheri Going? (D.Mail) Sheringham for sale
Sheringham for sale in hurry to balance books
Wednesday, August 26, 1998
Teddy Sheringham is on his way out of Old Trafford after being told that
Manchester United are prepared to sell him.
The England striker's fate was sealed from the moment Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
turned his back on a £5.5million move to Tottenham. Sheringham's name was
next on United manager Alex Ferguson's list of surplus stock and has already
been circulated to rival Premiership clubs.
'United want to claw back some money after spending so much in the past few
months,' said an Old Trafford insider. 'Alex accepts the position and is
prepared to let Sheringham go.'
Ferguson quickly identified Sheringham as his most expendable asset after
heeding the call to reverse the recent Old Trafford trend towards record
United's money men want to see funds coming into the club after allowing
£27m to go out on Jaap Stam, Jesper Blomqvist and Dwight Yorke.
Ferguson believed he had pacified them with a big cheque for Solskjaer until
the Norway striker decided he wanted to stay. That thrust Sheringham into
the spotlight as the answer to the manager's dilemma.
They will sell him to the first bidder willing to refund the £3.5m United
paid Spurs a year ago. Early indications are that there will be no shortage
Nottingham Forest boss Dave Bassett is keen to take Sheringham back to the
City Ground while West Ham and Middlesbrough are also among the front
Boro boss Bryan Robson is as well placed as anyone to meet United's asking
price, plus Sheringham's £15,000-a-week wages, and has made it clear he
wants an experienced figure to add height and presence to his lightweight
attack. But Robson may have to be at his most persuasive to convince the
32-year-old that his United days are at an end.
Sheringham strutted into Old Trafford with an air of self-assurance which
must have filled Ferguson with optimism after Eric Cantona's shock
He scored nine League goals in 28 starts compared with Solskjaer's six in
15. But the promise remains unfulfilled. United faltered badly towards the
end of their first post-Cantona campaign and ended up with nothing.
Sheringham felt the disappointment as keenly as anyone after admitting that
the main motivation for joining United was the prospect of winning something
But sentiment has never played a part in Ferguson's thinking. He was in no
hurry to dispense with Solskjaer but could see the sound commercial logic in
accepting £5.5m for a squad player who cost just over £1m a couple of years
However, Solskjaer scuppered the deal by declaring that he wanted to stay
despite the increasingly daunting fight for a first-team place.
Something still had to give after the fortune which went into making Yorke
the club's most expensive signing and Stam the world's costliest defender
and the manager quickly settled on Sheringham.
|New George Best Autobiography|
Subject: Edwards: Ole Deal CLOSED (Mirror)
WE WON'T SELL OUR STARS TO PAY FOR DWIGHT
Martin Edwards last night pledged that there would be no big sell-off to
replenish Manchester United's transfer kitty. The Old Trafford chairman has
sanctioned £37million of spending in the last 12 months.
Henning Berg and Teddy Sheringham were brought in for £9m last summer. Now
United have made £10.75m Jaap Stam the world's costliest defender, and
recruited Dwight Yorke for £12.6m and Jesper Blomqvist for £4.5m.
But on the eve of United's Champions' League clash with LKS Lodz in Poland,
Edwards said that he won't show stars the door in an attempt to claw back
some of the money. The case of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proves his point.
United agreed a £5.5m price with Tottenham. But when the Norwegian striker
told boss Alex Ferguson that he wanted to stay the deal was immediately
Edwards said: "We are not trying to cash in just because we have spent
something close to £37m in just over a year.
"We are not exactly desperate for finance despite the manager's new
investments in the squad this summer. Certainly there's no policy to sell
one or two players to get some of that cash back.
"The situation is that we have a number of top players who might not get
into this team on a regular basis because of the pressure on places.
"If that happens these individuals might not want to hang around. So if we
get a reasonable offer for anyone then it will be put to the player for him
to decide his future.
"That's what we did with Solskjaer. We agreed a deal with Spurs and that was
satisfactory to the club. But when we put it to Ole he decided that he
wanted to stay and fight for his place. We were happy with that situation
and at that point we closed down on the transfer.
"Maybe in six months time Ole or anyone else who is not getting into the
team might not want to stick around any longer. That would make the
situation different again."
Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar had hoped to get the Solskjaer deal back on by
tomorrow. He had planned talks with the United hitman and his
representatives in London. But now those moves have been finally killed off
Not all the new signings have been an instant hit - but United old hand
Peter Schmeichel has called on the critics to give the new-boys a break.
Schmeichel, who played for so long behind the rock solid defensive
partnership of Gary Pallister and Steve Bruce, is angry at the stick handed
out to new centre-back Stam.
"Look, this guy is at a different level," said Schmeichel, welcoming the
Dutchman back after a thigh injury.
"He's taken stick but that's something you have got to get used to if you
are a player in this country. Ask me again about Stam around Christmas time
when he's played a few games.
"I think it's unfair to pass any comment now on whether he's better than the
centre-backs who went before him.
"He's new to the club. And he's the most expensive defender in the world,
which is going to add some pressure. But from what I have seen so far he's
looking really good. I know some people who follow his old club PSV
Eindhoven and they say that last season he was unbelievable.
"Henning Berg and Ronny Johnsen played exceptionally well at West Ham. They
were fantastic. Now Jaap is back it shows just how intense the competition
is. And we can all benefit from that. The gaffer has added to the squad but
it's difficult to say whether we have a stronger one than we did four months
Jan Tomaszewski, the keeper who broke English hearts in 1973 when the Poles
denied them a World Cup place, claims that Lodz are scared stiff of United.
He said: "In Manchester they were so frightened, even if they were under
orders to go forward they simply couldn't. Their legs were trembling."

Subject: LIFE'S ALL DWIGHT FOR YORKE (365)
'After This Move, I Think My Smile Will Be A Permanent Fixture' Says
New United Star
DWIGHT YORKE will approach life at Old Trafford in exactly the same
way as he handled things at Aston Villa - with a smile on his face.
The £12.6m striker is determined not to let the pressure of the record
fee, or of being the man charged with the responsibility of scoring
the goals to take the title back to Manchester, spoil his enjoyment of
the game he loves.
He was wearing the biggest smile of his life when he finally put pen
to paper on a five-year contract last week and ended the long-running
saga of his on-off transfer to United. And now he is finally a Red
Devil, he intends to enjoy every minute of it.
"If I thought I couldn't handle the pressure, the last place I would
have come to is Manchester United, " he said. "In many ways it's
unfair for a player to be subjected to such pressure because he has
absolutely nothing to do with the transfer fee. That is between the
two clubs. But inevitably it's the player who has to deal with it. But
even though I know everyone will scrutinise every move I make, they
won't wipe this smile of my face."
But while he and Alex Ferguson were all grins, there was rising
resentment in the Midlands at the way the Trinidad & Tobago
international was able to walk away from Villa with two years of his
contract remaining. The fans feel he should have shown more loyalty to
the club which gave him his big chance, but he hopes they will
understand his reasons for leaving.
He said: "It disappoints me that some of them have been so hostile
towards me. I always gave 110 per cent for the club and nine years is
a long time in a player's career. I just hope they understand why I
moved. They have to ask themselves if they would have done the same in
my situation. I can understand the way some people feel about the
move. But if they are unhappy with me I will have to live with it. You
have to make choices in life and sometimes those choices may not meet
with the approval of everyone. People have opinions and I respect
Yorke joined United in time to be eligible for the early rounds in the
Champions League, although he is not available to play against LKS
Lodz tonight. He admits that the lure of top European football helped
him make up his mind to move to Old Trafford.
"I can't deny it helped," he added. "I know that playing for Trinidad
and Tobago will never allow me the opportunity to play at the highest
level in the game. The Champions League is the next best thing, it's
the only real chance I have of playing against the world's top
"But more than that it was about Manchester United. The club, the
reputation, the fans. Everything about this move is right. I have a
reputation for smiling, you should play with a smile on your face. But
after this move I think it will be a permanent fixture on my face."
