Ferguson will offload £3.5 million misfit 
Manchester United will offload striker Teddy Sheringham at the end of the
season – even if they land the Premiership title. Sources close to the club
have revealed to Football365 exclusively that the Old Trafford giants have
been disappointed with the contribution of their £3.5 million summer
capture from Spurs. They believe Sheringham hasn’t proved to be the star
replacement they had hoped for fans’ hero Eric Cantona, who quit the club
and football in general in the summer. And even if United believe
Sheringham has been a flop, his availability is sure to alert a host of
clubs desperate to capture the 32 year-old’s signature. 

Sheringham remains a fans’ favourite at Spurs and despite the hostile
reception he received when he returned to White Hart Lane with United,
would doubtless be welcomed with open arms in North London if he decided to
return south. 

United’s season has fallen apart in recent weeks with a shocking run in the
Premiership, an FA Cup defeat at Barnsley and – worst of all - an exit from
the Champions League after a home draw with French Champions Monaco. 

Manager Alex Ferguson has been very disappointed with his forward line’s
lack of firepower and is said to be keen to reactivate his interest in the
Argentinean striker Gabriel Batistuta, who this week went on the record to
claim that he was extremely unhappy at Italian Serie A side Fiorentina. 

Meanwhile, former United star Karel Poborsky has spoken out about his fear
of returning to Manchester after it was revealed that his new club Benfica
had not yet paid Manchester United a penny of the Czech international’s £4
million transfer fee: 

“The weather in England’s really terrible, far different from what you get
in Portugal,” said Poborsky. “I had no problems adapting to Portuguese
weather. But in England my family suffered a lot. I have never regretted my
decision to come here, which I consider a step in the right direction. I
want to see out the rest of my three and a half year contract here.” 

A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas.

If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

Soccer-United win, but violence flares at English grounds
(adds violence, match details, quotes,)
By Simon Haydon

LONDON, March 28 (Reuters) - Manchester United belatedly rediscovered some
scoring form to beat Wimbledon 2-0 in the English premier league on Saturday
and maintain a six-point lead over Arsenal who defeated Sheffield Wednesday

But soccer action was overshadowed by violence around English grounds.

A fan died and several others were taken to hospital after a match between
second division Gillingham and Fulham. There was also trouble at Barnsley
and Everton.

At Old Trafford, the reigning champions battered away at the stubborn
Wimbledon defence for 83 minutes before Norwegian defender Ronny Johnsen
rifled home a loose ball to break the deadlock.

Paul Scholes added a second in the dying seconds to give United their first
win in six matches.

"We showed today that we have the stomach for a battle," said Manchester
United manager Alex Ferguson. "With that kind of stomach we've got a real
shout for the championship."

His opposite number Joe Kinnear accused referee David Gallagher of being
afraid to give decisions against Manchester United and said three home
players were offside when they scored their first goal.

"We have to suffer because the referee does not have any bottle. It (the
goal) was a turning point for us. Up to then we were coasting...he had a
pathetic game, I am bitterly disappointed," said the outspoken Kinnear.

Manchester United now have 63 points from 32 games, Arsenal are on 57 from
29 and Liverpool have 54 from 31. Fourth-placed Chelsea play Middlesbrough
in the final of the League Cup on Sunday.

Arsenal, unbeaten for nine matches, kept up the pressure on the champions
with a 35th minute goal fired home by Dutch striker Dennis Bergkamp, his
19th of the season, after a cool through ball from compatriot Marc Overmars.

Bergkamp will miss Arsenal's next three games through suspension.

Third-placed Liverpool featured in the most dramatic game of the day against
struggling Barnsley, where the Yorkshire club ended the game with no points
and just eight players on the field after three were sent off.

Play was interrupted in the 65th minute when Chris Morgan became the second
Barnsley man sent off after elbowing a Liverpool player.

The visitors were winning 2-1 and a spectator, who ran onto the pitch in an
apparent effort to get at referee Gary Willard, had to be restrained by

Scuffles broke out on and off the pitch. Players clashed and match officials
had to be escorted from the pitch before play could resume.

Barnsley, with nine men, managed an equaliser to make the score 2-2 before
Steve McManaman grabbed a 90th minute winner. Seconds later Barnsley's
Darren Sheridan was sent off.

At the other end of the premier league Tottenham Hotspur drove bottom-placed
Crystal Palace deeper into trouble with a 3-1 away victory.

Second to bottom Bolton beat Leicester 2-0, Alan Thompson scoring two second
half goals. Bolton's Icelandic defender Gudni Bergsson and Leicester's
Robert Ullathorne were both sent off.

Palace remain bottom, with 26 points, Bolton have 30 and Barnsley 31.
Everton drop to fourth from bottom after a 4-1 thumping at home to Aston

Newcastle, after a turbulent two weeks in which Sir John Hall returned after
a boardroom scandal involving the chairman and deputy chairman of the club,
flopped 2-1 away to Southampton, Matt Le Tissier scoring an 85th minute
penalty to deepen the northeastern club's problems.

In the lower echelons, Notts County became the first league side since World
War Two to be promoted in March when they beat Leyton Orient 1-0 to take an
unassailable 19-point lead in Division Three.

SUNDAY, MARCH 29, 1998

Transfer talk continues! «« 
Despite the fact that transfer deadline day came and passed in uneventful
fashion at Old Trafford this week, it is of little surprise to discover the
weekend reports packed with the usual speculation overdrive.
Several names have been linked to the club in apparent summer swoops, and
some of the names linked are the biggest in the business.
There has been suggestions that the Reds may make a return for former
favourite Andrei Kanchelskis. Kanchelskis has gone on record as saying that
he regretted ever leaving Old Trafford, and yes, United have been 'crying
out' for a right sided player in the mould of Kanchelskis this season.
However, one or two factors would seemingly rule out a return for Andrei.
Firstly his departure from Old Trafford was acrimonious to say the least.
Secondly, is Kanchelskis the player he was when he left ? I think not.
Had Fergie decided to make a pre-deadline swoop for a right sided player,
the maybe Andrei would have got his wish. But the feeling is that Fergie
will have bigger fish to fry in the summer.
John Hartson has also been linked as a possible summer target of Alex
Ferguson, although West Ham United may have other ideas about that. Keeping
with the striker theme, Alan Shearer continues to be linked to a £20
million move to United at the end of the season, but surely Shearer has had
his chance to come to Old Trafford in the past, and too much has been said
since for there to be any chance of a belated Shearer arrival.

Sheri Spurs return ? «« 
It has been suggested that Spurs made a cheeky £1 million pre-deadline
swoop for Teddy Sheringham. Such is United's injury situation at the moment
there was no chance of any success. However were they told to come back
with an improved offer in the summer ?

A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas.

If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.

By David Anderson, PA Sport

Alex Ferguson admitted he was a relieved man after his Manchester United
side won with two late goals to put their title challenge back on track.

United dominated from the start at Old Trafford, but Wimbledon looked as if
they were going to hold out for a point until Ronny Johnsen scored his first
Premiership goal seven minutes from time.

Paul Scholes added a second with his eighth goal of the season in stoppage
time to seal the champions' first win this month at the sixth attempt.

The victory maintains their six-point lead over second-placed Arsenal, who
have three games in hand.

United manager Ferguson said: "I can't disguise how delighted we are at the
results. It looked as if we were not going to get it, but we kept
persevering and we deserved to win the game.

"We maybe got a break for the first goal, but we deserved that bit of luck."

Ferguson felt it was a vital result because Arsenal had also won.

"Wins are always important at this stage and the situation now is that we
can't make a mistake," he said.

"At one point it looked as if we were going to give Arsenal a big boost and
this is a very, very good result for us."

Ferguson then tried some more of his psychological warfare against Arsenal
manager Arsene Wenger when he claimed the Gunners were still in pole
position in the championship race.

"They're really in the driving seat because they have got to lose points for
us to win it, so it's interesting," he said.

Andy Cole limped off with an ankle injury towards the end but Ferguson
insisted he should be fit to face Blackburn on Monday week.

He added that the injured quartet of Ryan Giggs, Peter Schmeichel, Gary
Pallister and Nicky Butt, who missed today's game, should also be fit for
the Ewood Park clash.

Don's boss Joe Kinnear did not attend the post-match press conference and
instead he left it to his captain Robbie Earle to reveal their

Earle, who claimed United's first crucial goal was offside, said: "We had a
game plan for 80 minutes and although we were under some pressure it was
still working and we were hanging in there.

"It was a slightly sloppy goal and we thought one or two players were

"We worked to push out from corners and we felt we had left one or two of
the United boys in there.

"I suppose it had to be proven if they were interfering with playing, but we
felt that at least one of them was on the six-yard box and surely that must
be an active zone.

"Obviously we are disappointed as we had some good possession in the first
half and we had given United a real test."

Earle dismissed any notions that Wimbledon would be relegated.

"If you know us then you will know that we don't feel that we will go down,"
he said.
