Subject: Neville Lifts Stam (D.Mail) Stam class highlights Liverpool's frailties Saturday, September 26, 1998 Jaap Stam's revitalised performance against Liverpool only confirmed what Roy Evans and Gerard Houllier already knew. Unless Liverpool's joint managers find a defender who can consistently win the ball in the air their ambition of reaching next season's Champions League may never get off the ground. The Dutchman, who was also wanted by Liverpool before making his world record £10.75million move to Manchester United, has hardly been flying since arriving in the Premiership. But thanks to a crash course in the basics of defending in this country by the brilliant Gary Neville, Stam finally began to look like he knew what he was doing, even against Michael Owen and Karlheinz Reidle, then Robbie Fowler. Liverpool also learned their lesson and are now planning their own Dutch raid. A high-powered Anfield contingent are due to fly out today to watch £4m-rated AZ Alkmaar central defender Peter Wijker in action against Bobby Robson's PSV Eindhoven. Ironically, Wijker was earmarked as Stam's replacement at Eindhoven after his United move but Robson stopped the deal when he returned in the summer. Liverpool have already watched videos of the player who is on the verge of a call-up to his national side and was the cornerstone of the Alkmaar team that gained promotion to the Dutch First Division. Liverpool are also in discussion with Borussia Monchengladbach over Swedish defender Patrick Andersson, who has improved since an unsuccessful spell at Blackburn. Their defensive frailties were certainly highlighted in the 2-0 defeat at United. Goalkeeper Brad Friedel flapping at crosses and Jamie Carragher and Phil Babb attempting to be combative in aerial challenges when one is not a natural centre back and the other is more of a left back. Both can play when the ball is on the deck but neither could ever win their wings. Such is the continuing indecision within the Liverpool rearguard, so obvious is the lack of leadership, that Friedel, like David James before him, is beginning to look like a nervous wreck. His disposition was in marked contrast to Stam at Old Trafford on Thursday night. His confidence appeared to return as he played alongside Neville. Former Old Trafford and Arsenal striker Frank Stapleton, who knows a thing or two about beating defenders in the air, believes Neville's influence could finally make Stam justifylook worth his huge transfer fee. 'For the first time he was playing alongside an Englishman, used to the English way of defending,' said Stapleton. 'Henning Berg and Ronny Johnsen are both accomplished players but they are both quiet, Norwegian and used to defending in a different way. 'Gary Neville was talking to Stam constantly, forcing him to think, forcing him to concentrate and be ready for the next ball. The longer the game went on, the more convincing Stam looked.' While Neville's influence will surely bring the best out of Stam the hunt goes on at Anfield. It cannot be allowed to continue for much longer. ------------------------ Gaz Salutes Stam (PA) NEVILLE JUST HAPPY TO BE PLAYING By David Anderson, PA Sport Gary Neville is happy to revert to his normal right-back position after his starring role at centre-half against Liverpool. Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson moved Neville across to the heart of his defence to counter the pace of Michael Owen for last night's game at Old Trafford and the ploy worked perfectly. Owen, who scorched through the United defence to score for Liverpool at Old Trafford last season, hardly got a kick as Neville was outstanding. Neville could well find himself returning to full-back in United's next match against Bayern Munich in the Champions' League on Wednesday, especially if central defender Ronny Johnsen recovers from his ankle injury. But England international Neville insists he does not mind and that he is just happy to play anywhere. "I must say I enjoyed playing at centre-back, but at the end of the day it does not bother me at all," he said. "If the manager asks me to play right-back or centre-back I don't mind. The most important thing for me is that I'm playing and where I play doesn't really matter." Neville is well used to playing as a central defender from his days with the youth and reserve teams and Ferguson says he would be the best centre-back in Britain if he were just an inch or two taller. At 5ft 10 1/2ins he knows he is not the biggest defender around, but he has learnt to compensate for his lack of height. "It's a position I have played since I was 16 for the reserves and youth teams," said Neville. "When you are not so tall you have to have something else and you can't simply say 'he's bigger than me so I'll let him beat me'. "If we lose a goal through a header and it's my fault because I'm supposed to be marking the player, I can't use the fact that I'm only 5ft 10 1/2ins as an excuse. I've got to use other ways to combat that." Although Neville looked calm and assured during United's 2-0 victory, he revealed he did not feel like that on the inside. He knew no matter how well he was doing he could not afford to take his eye off Owen for one second. "People say I kept him quiet, but I never felt he was quiet during the game," he said. "I always felt on edge because he is capable of producing something special. He's unbelievable for what he is doing at his age, but he did not get any goals this time and I'm happy with that." Neville was reluctant to take much credit for the win and instead he paid tribute to his centre-half partner Jaap Stam. He feels the Dutchman's performance was further evidence that he has successfully settled in at Old Trafford. "I didn't do anything special and as a centre-back you head a ball because you should head the ball," he said. "Jaap Stam was there alongside me and he helped me a lot with the aerial challenge. He was absolutely outstanding and he probably did a lot more than me. "People are saying I did well because it was my first game in there, but I think Jaap was brilliant." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: Lineker Chooses Keane (ET) Keane can carry the defensive burden By Gary Lineker IT MAY not have been a vintage performance by Manchester United against Liverpool last Thursday, but they certainly stopped the rot after leaking six goals in their previous two games. It raised the question of whether the experimental centre-back pairing of Jaap Stam and Gary Neville - outstanding against the Merseysiders - is the one Alex Ferguson intends using to conquer Europe, starting on Wednesday against Bayern in Munich. Ferguson has made no secret of his admiration for Neville senior at centre-back, but he has always qualified it with a rider which usually goes something like "he would be the best centre-half in the country - if he was three inches taller". The United manager knows that while the football played in the English league nowadays is no longer the biff, bang, wallop of yesteryear, it remains a game where essentially big strikers who are good in the air still prosper. Strangely, or perhaps not so strangely, Neville's lack of height is less of a drawback in the rarefied atmosphere of European football - or against teams like Liverpool who tend to play it on the deck - than it is against your average Premiership opposition. Given that it would make sense to go with a regular pairing, home and abroad, I believe Ferguson could do worse than play Roy Keane at centre-back alongside the Dutchman. Keane, for me, is just about the best central defender in the country, as comfortable in that position as he is in most positions on a football field. Naturally, he would be a loss to United in midfield, but they coped well enough there without him last season and it is an area where they are particularly blessed with players. If nothing else it would ensure that the excellent Nicky Butt got regularly into the starting line-up. Stam had a fine game against Liverpool but it may take time for him to adjust to the pace of the English game. I thought against Arsenal and Barcelona he got his positioning wrong. Even so, I have been amazed how quick people have been to write off United's £10.7 million acquisition. They have such short memories. Gary Pallister took a while to settle, too, at Old Trafford, as I recall, and not a few critics at the time considered him over-priced at £2.3 million! Apart from which, partnerships, like that between Pallister and Steve Bruce, take time to develop. Not only is Stam big, quick and strong, but he has shown he can play a bit, too, which, in a central defender, is a boon. Ronny Johnsen was designated as his original partner but, in his absence, Ferguson has tried Henning Berg and now Neville. Pairing Keane with Stam would, I think, not only provide the new man with an experienced partner and some breathing space but it would also enable Keane to continue his recovery from a debilitating injury in a less physically demanding area of the team. The Irishman is clearly not back to his best yet but he could perform the centre-back role while nursing himself back to full match fitness. It is of paramount importance to United, as they go into Wednesday's Champions' League tie against Bayern Munich, that they continue to remain solid at the back, whatever the central defensive pairing. I believe they can come away from Munich with at least a draw. It has been unlike United to concede so many goals this season, and even more unlike a team managed by Alex Ferguson. He will have made it his chief priority to get that part of the team working properly because he knows that, apart from the obvious benefits of not conceding silly goals, there are other advantages to be had. In any of the more successful teams in which I played the key ingredient was always the ability to defend well. It spreads so much confidence through a side. The best team I ever played for - Everton - were very strong as a defensive unit. Whenever we went a goal up I knew we would win because I was confident in the players behind me. By the same token a porous defence can lead to disharmony. I played for a few teams with bad defences and there is nothing more galling than to knock the ball around encouragingly for 15 minutes only to suddenly find oneself a goal down. It can lead to cliques developing within the side, with forwards moaning at defenders and vice-versa. Defence apart, there has not been much wrong with United to worry Ferguson. Dwight Yorke has settled in as well as anyone could have asked for at a big club like United. He has shown that he is mentally, as well as physically, up to the job. It has been said that he does not perform away from home but it could be that Aston Villa, as a team, did not perform on their travels either. We will know soon enough whether the criticism of Yorke is valid since United tend to play the same at home as away. Here again United have yet to establish the right partner for their record buy but, with so many high-pressure matches these days, it is often necessary to try different combinations up front and rest players. Yorke may not be a prolific goalscorer but in a team like United, who can get goals from almost anywhere in the side, it matters rather less. What does matter and what United have patently lacked in Europe for a couple of seasons has been someone who can score goals in the big games when it counts. That is when the £12 million player must earn his corn.

Subject: ANDY COLE - TOP OF THE POLLS ANDY COLE - TOP OF THE POLLS Andy Cole has emerged as the popular choice among Manchester United fans to partner Dwight Yorke up front. In a poll for Teletext, viewers overwhelmingly thought Cole would be the ideal man to play alongside £12.6million striker Yorke. Cole polled 48% of the votes. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was second with 31% Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs both received 8% Teddy Sheringham 5%. FOOTNOTE from 365 today! MAIL GET GOOD PICTURE SHOCK The Mail were also the only paper to come up with the picture of Paul Ince showing two fingers to the Old Trafford crowd. A popular pastime this - he'll probably bump into Mark Bosnich when he gets hauled up by the beak. Indeed, if ever the FA's short of a bit of cash, it could get photographers to look for reactions rather than goals, and they'd still turn a tidy profit.

Subject: D-Day for letters to OFT re: BSkyB bid for MUFC Comments: To: imusa@listbot.com Today is D-Day for sending letters to the OFT to guarantee there arrival by the deadline on Monday. If you're outside the UK you'll need to fax your message. (Tell them to stock up on fax paper too!) I'm not sure whether they're accepting messages at their email address but I suppose it won't hurt to cc: it to enquiries@oft.gov.uk You can send a free internet email fax -see end of this message for details. Office of Fair Trading 15-25 Bream's Buildings London EC4A 1PR Telephone +44 (0)171 211 8000 (switchboard) 0345 22 44 99 (public enquiries) Fax +44 (0)171 211 8590 E-mail: enquiries@oft.gov.uk Please make your submission as personal as possible but feel free to use the following as a guideline if you're groping for inspiration. It's not definitive - just some of the things I thought of that might appeal to the OFT - not all my arguments against the bid in general. Submissions to the OFT should concentrate on competition in the football and broadcasting industries [1] BSkyB already have monopoly coverage of live premiership football due to their exclusive contract. Therefore viewers have no choice over which broadcaster to watch. The inflation in BSkyB subscription fees is indicative of a monopoly position. In a free market no company could increase prices like this without losing market share to competitors. [2] If BSkyB take over Manchester United they will be sitting on both sides of the table when it comes to negotiating the live Premiership broadcasting rights. This cannot encourage competition in an already anti-competitive market – more likely it will result in the reverse. [3] If the bid proceeds there will not be a level playing field for all broadcasters to bid for live coverage of Manchester United games if they play in the UEFA or European Cup Winner’s Cup. Currently MUFC is free to negotiate with any broadcaster for the rights if involved in these competitions. Further loss of competition will result in an even poorer deal for consumers. [4] In the event of a successful bid MUFC would no longer be free to negotiate with all other broadcasters for rights to the most lucrative ( and exploitative) market of all. The forthcoming “Pay Per View” broadcasting of matches. Further loss of competition will result in an even poorer deal for consumers [5] The current broadcasting contract allocation method of highest bid wins exclusive rights to broadcast is anti-competitive in practice. Other broadcasters (than BSkyB) such as BBC and ITV are unable to compete as their franchise agreements prevent them recouping the bid outlay through viewer subscriptions. The monopoly thus created has produced a poor deal for consumers. The solution is to disallow exclusive deals so that consumers can make their choice on the basis of quality and price of the product. Real competition would result in a better deal for consumers. [6] The connection between BSkyB and other News International businesses has long been a cause for concern. The other media outlets in the News International group have promoted BSkyB in “News Stories” at the expense of competitors. The initial coverage of this takeover bid is a prime example with newspapers such as The Sun predicting a golden future for Manchester United and it’s fans. This is in stark contrast to coverage in non- News International owned media. [7] Football clubs are a special case. A defining historical feature of a football supporter is loyalty to his chosen club. Therefore he is different from an ordinary consumer who can shop at a different supermarket if he so wishes. Consumers (fans) must therefore be protected from exploitation in this effective monopoly environment. A powerful indication of the existence of this monopoly is the astronomical inflation in ticket prices. I challenge anyone to name an established free market where such levels of price inflation (relative to overall inflation in the economy) could occur without loss of market share and customers complaining about pricing. [8] BSkyB already effectively controls too much sport – football, rugby league, rugby union, cricket . … This is anti-competitive and results in less choice and a bad deal for the consumer. [9] Sky sports Managing Director, Vic Wakeling, has been reported as saying "What we don't want to happen in English Football is perhaps what's happened in Scottish Football. To take one example where Rangers won 9 titles in a row." This statement illustrates the kind of conflicts of interest thrown up by this bid. In other words BSkyB could be relied upon to be 100% committed to MUFC football success - as long as they don't get TOO successful as this would be damaging for BSkyB's ratings. So can the company (BSkyB) be relied upon not to interfere in the football business for the sake of their broadcasting business. I think not. Please send your submission NOW - a lot of people have been working hard to get information out to as many as possible and it'll take you a matter of minutes (alright maybe half an hour if you do it properly!). Internet Fax/Email Gateway We do want as many submissions as possible but the OFT are not the enemy (we hope they're the saviours!)so don't abuse this. I haven't got the details to hand but I think the web page is www.tpc.int ? and the format of the email address will be remote-printer.OFT@44171 211 8590.iddd.tpc.int if I've got this wrong please correct me asap.
