Ferguson expects another physical battle but United look like being without Gary Pallister once more. The poor run of form has coincided with Pally's reoccurrence of a back injury. United will be looking for their first win since the 1-0 win over Chelsea. As well as Pallister, Peter Schmeicel looks like losing his fitness battle but up front there is better news. Ole Solksjaer returns and Andy Cole is fit following a calf problem to compensate for the loss of the suspended Teddy Sheringham. Ryan Giggs is doubtful once again after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring injury in training today. Alex Ferguson said: "It's not looking as hopeful as a couple of days ago." A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

Coming just days after the demoralising Premiership defeat at home to Arsenal, United’s European exit at the hands of Monaco hit Alex Ferguson’s men hard and Beckham is not about to pretend otherwise. But that was over a week ago – a set-back they no longer wish to consider – and Beckham insists that, if anything, the end of the Euro dream means United are even more heavily focussed on the quest to finish the season as English Champions once more. “It would be easy for us to sit back and go on about what a disaster the Monaco defeat was, but we have more important issues to think about,” says the United pin-up. “Like bracing ourselves for the title run-in. “The Monaco result is in the past now; we have to concentrate on winning the League. If we keep thinking about going out of Europe, and don’t focus on the job in hand, we could end up with nothing. “We were unfortunate not to make the semis, but it wasn’t to be and we have to accept that. Everyone is firmly focussed on qualifying for the Champions League next season and nothing is going to distract us from that.” Such a positive reaction is only to be expected. Alex Ferguson would not settle for anything less. But the truth is that the next few weeks pose one of the biggest ever tests for the United boss. With all the doubts and injury problems which surround the club, the sceptics are already predicting a premature end of a glorious era; the crumbling of the empire Fergie has built. Such suggestions are laughed at within Old Trafford where players and management alike refuse to entertain such a notion, preferring to maintain a positive outlook and the desire to, in Beckham’s own words, ‘soldier on regardless’. With customary United defiance, Beckham adds: “We just need to keep faith; have belief in our ability. We have not had the best of luck in recent weeks, but we have to put that down to experience. “We have some very important games coming up and winning the Premiership has taken on a whole new importance. But having said that – and despite certain people maintaining our main priority was the Champions League – inside the dressing room we have always maintained that the Premiership is the most important thing. “I still think we have a slight advantage, even though Arsenal could take the lead if they win their games in hand, but nothing can be taken for granted by either side.” DO YOU THINK THE PRESSURE HAS GOT TO THE PLAYERS? I don’t think that should ever come into it. You expect pressure playing for Manchester United – it goes with the territory. The players have learned to handle it; even the younger ones. In any case, we can’t use it as an excuse, just as we can’t totally blame recent results on injuries. The expectations of the fans is very high and, of course, there is a certain amount of responsibility that comes with playing for a club like United. We’re in the spotlight, but that’s why we’re here. ARSENAL SEEM TO BE ON A ROLL – ARE YOU WORRIED? We’re not thinking about anyone else, just our own performances. The league is our bread and butter and our only aim is to focus on finishing the season as the English champions. To finish second would be a disaster. It would mean playing in a qualifying round in July and, with so many of our players involved in the World Cup, it could cause all sorts of problems. MONACO WAS OBVIOUSLY DISAPPOINTING, BUT WERE YOU PLEASED WITH YOUR PERFORMANCE I enjoyed playing in a central midfield role – I have always said that’s my favourite position. Having said that, I accept I am one of 11 players and if Alex Ferguson, or Glenn Hoddle come to that, feel I am better employed in a wide role then so be it. I prefer the middle for a number of reasons; in the main because you tend to drift in and out of games when you play out wide and that can be very frustrating. In the centre you are constantly in the action. WITH THE WORLD CUP LOOMING, DO YOU FEEL FULL OF ENERGY? The season is very long when you’re involved in so many competitions but I’ve been fortunate to be able to rest at certain times. I certainly don’t feel tired, but that’s another good thing about having such an experienced manager who can sense if you need a rest. I’ll still have plenty of energy left for the World Cup, that’s for sure. A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

The Czech Republic star is at the centre of a bitter cash dispute. United have yet to receive a penny of the £3.5m fee agreed with Graeme Souness when Poborsky went to Portugal last December. They have started action to get their money, or the player, back. But Poborsky insists he will do anything but return to Old Trafford after a nightmare 18 months at the club. "I don't know what the details are about the money that is supposed to be owed but one thing is for sure, I don't want to go back to Old Trafford," said Poborsky after starring for the Czechs in Wednesday's win over the Republic of Ireland. "I would hate to think I would have to go back there because it was such a bad experience for me. A lot of people must have wondered why Alex Ferguson bought me. I thought I was a good player. I thought that was confirmed when I went to Old Trafford after Euro '96. "But I could never get enough games there and, as a result, I could never get into the rhythm of the team. That meant I was unable to get established. My game suffered, I could never get my confidence going, and it showed. "The move for me just didn't work. I thought it was a dream come true but it became a nightmare. I never had the chance to show what I could do. The best thing for me was leaving Old Trafford and going to Benfica to start again. "It just makes me shudder to think that there might be some sort of technicality that would bring me back. That's the last thing I would want." Poborsky was a revelation for the Czechs against Ireland, starring in the free midfield role that Ferguson denied him at Old Trafford. He believes he is now playing the best football of his career. And it is all down to his confidence being restored by moving to Portugal. Poborsky said: "I am happy again and that makes the difference. As things went from bad to worse in England, I felt lonely. My English wasn't good, I couldn't settle and I didn't even like the food there. "I prefer the food in Portugal and the lifestyle is better as well. Because I'm happier, I'm starting to get my confidence back. And my game is back." Poborsky still watches United on satellite television. He wonders if their current dip in form could have been averted if he had stayed last Christmas. "After watching the game against Monaco last week I think that maybe Ferguson is regretting selling me now," said the Benfica man. "The club have a few injuries at the minute and that could have been my chance. But it was too late for me. I had to go." Meanwhile, Darren Huckerby has explained why he rejected United and stayed at Coventry City. United were ready to lead a £5m chase for the 21-year-old striker. He said: "It is a mark of my confidence in Coventry's future that I'm staying. I believe I can achieve everything I want over the next few seasons right here. "I am already a much better player after only 16 months with City, and I hope there is still plenty more improvement to come." Coventry swooped for another bargain yesterday, agreeing to buy Belgian international Phillipe Clement from Sporting Genk for just £125,000.

The Wimbledon manager is wondering how many of Manchester United's international players will make a 'miraculous' recovery in time for the Premiership clash at Old Trafford. 'We've had several players away on international duty this week whereas all the Manchester United players withdrew from their internationals,' said Kinnear, adding: 'I can only assume that all their players will be fit again miraculously for Saturday.' 'Perhaps that is something which we would all like to do with our international players. It will be interesting to see how many of their players recover in time.' The normally bullish Dons manager is uncharacteristically concerned that his side may face a backlash at Old Trafford. Kinnear said: 'Considering United were cruising in the league and were 10 or 11 points clear at one time it worries me that they are focusing on the league after going out of Europe. 'It is unfortunate that we are going up there this week.' Marcus Lionel van Geyzel.

Giggs and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel have both recovered from hamstring injuries and the Welshman is expected to start. Manager Alex Ferguson said: "Hopefully Ryan will have come through the hard training session we gave him on Thursday and will be able to play." He added: "Schmeichel is doing little bits of training as are David Beckham and the Nevilles but at this moment we are not sure about them." Teddy Sheringham is banned for one match and Nicky Butt is still suffering from a calf injury.

As manager Alex Ferguson gave up the chase to add the security of extra numbers to his squad before the transfer deadline tonight he ruled Peter Schmeichel and Gary Pallister out of the Reds' match at Old Trafford against Wimbledon. But Solskjaer is one silver lining. United have failed to hit more than a single goal in a match for a month. In that time strikers Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham have endured a six-game barren spell. Cole has recovered from a calf problem. Sheringham won't play against Wimbledon at Old Trafford because of a one-match ban. Solskjaer, however, is hitting scoring form at the right time for United. The Norwegian struck the Champions League equaliser last week against Monaco and he hit Norway's leveller last night in a 2-2 friendly draw against Belgium in Brussels. ``It was an excellent goal last night,'' says Fergie. ``Ole Gunnar will be ready for the challenge on Saturday A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

Cheers Rich TOMLINSON JOINS LIONS ON LOAN Manchester United defender Graeme Tomlinson has joined First Division Millwall. Tomlinson will go to the Den on loan until the end of the season, when his Old Trafford future will be reviewed by Reds boss Alex Ferguson, who signed the 23-year-old in the summer of 1994. Full-back Tomlinson impressed Ferguson when playing his football at Bradford City, but has struggled to make his mark on the Old Trafford first team.

Speaking of Le Dieu, did anyone see the new Nike ad that features the Brazilian team? The Brazilians are kicking a ball round an airport, with their usual sublime skills, before Ronaldo eventually shoots towards a "goal" made up of two of those metal bar standing things - you know, they hold ropes that can be easily detached to let people through or whatever. The ball hits the outside of one of these and bounces away, Ronaldo looks pained, everyone groans, ha ha ha, cue the swoosh. Anyway, as the ball is whizzing around the airport it narrowly misses a shaven-headed member of the public having a coffee in the cafeteria. He looks round with surprise, and lo! It's Eric! Gone but not forgotten. Not forgotten by Johan Cruyff either! Apparently he said that he ranked Eric "ahead of Bergkamp when discussing his all-time top five players. Bergkamp, said the Dutch genius, lacked the heart for a serious fight." Hmmm.
