Subject: Stam (Mirror) HAPPY STAM IS REBORN By STEVE MILLAR JAAP Stam reaches for his wallet in times of trouble. Not to check on the bundles of cash he earns at Manchester United as the most expensive defender in the world, but to set his eyes on a pristine picture of his daughter Lisa, born two weeks ago in his Holland homeland. That picture of innocence keeps him sane when madmen outside his world protest that he's not worth the 10.75million United paid PSV Eindhoven for him. Stam was given time off by United before the Charity Shield to be with wife Ellis for the birth, and he says: "It was a beautiful experience of my life. It puts everything into perspective." Stam reveals he has also another reminder that being the butt of so much criticism isn't that important. His Dutch pal Dennis Bergkamp survived similar hostilities in his early days at Highbury. Stam says: "When Dennis came to England he received a lot of criticism. I talked to him and he told me to work my way through it. "I don't let it get to me. I simply concentrate on my game because all I want to do is succeed at Manchester United.

Subject: ME and the Champions League UNITED: WE WILL DO IT THE HARD WAY By David Anderson, PA Sport Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards took one look at their nightmare Champions' League draw and said: "If we're going to win, we're going to have to do it the hard way." United have been drawn in by far the toughest group with Spanish champions Barcelona, Bundesliga runners-up Bayern Munich and Peter Schmeichel's former club Brondby, who won a Danish league and cup double last season. With only the six group winners and the two best runners-up going through to the quarter-finals, United face a stiff test to make the knock-out stages. Edwards said: "It's going to be very tough and really to be certain of going through we have got to win the group." United open their Group D account against Barcelona, who are one of the favourites for the competition, at Old Trafford on September 16. Alex Ferguson's side will be anxious to atone for their 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Barcelona in 1994 in what was one of the lowest points of their Champions' League history. United defender Phil Neville admits it is a daunting prospect trying to qualify from such a formidable group, but he remains upbeat about their chances. United topped their Champions' League group last season and he believes they can do it again. "I've been involved in the Champions' League for the past two years and certainly I think it's going to be the most difficult campaign I've faced," he said. "But we're all determined to do well in the Champions' League like we have done in the last two years and bring them on, I say." One consolation for Ferguson is that United have not drawn either holders Real Madrid or last season's beaten finalists Juventus, whom he feels are the favourites to win the Champions' League. "Real Madrid winning it last year must be favourites along with Juventus," he said. "There are very many good teams and I think that with the quality of teams like Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and teams like that it is going to be a very good competition."

Subject: Barca Sign Kluivert (Mirror) BARCELONA GET 12M KLUIVERT Barcelona last night succeeded where Manchester United and Arsenal failed - by signing 12million Patrick Kluivert from AC Milan. The 22-year-old Dutch striker signed an hour before the deadline to start the Spanish League season, but too late to play in the Champions' League. So Kluivert will have to be a spectator when Barcelona face United in the group stage. The Kluivert deal followed the 20m transfer of Italian striker Christian Vieri from Atletico Madrid to Lazio. Vieri scored five goals during the recent World Cup finals.
