ARTICLE 30/3/98

Denmark  "the land of goalkeepers"
Jimmy Nielsen: Aalborg, Dk.

A new Danish goalkeeper on the sidelines, 20 years old, set to take over
from Peter?
Jimmy has never hidden the fact that Peter Schmeichel is his big hero
and a dream move to Manchester United
is his big dream would be a carrer at Old Trafford!


Jimmy's dream may well come true as last Tuesday whilst Jimmy played for
Denmark U21's v Scotland Alex
Ferguson's brother was there to check him out. Reports were so good that
United have taken steps to possibly
secure his services soon to become apprentice to Peter Schmeichel.


Jimmy's agent Vincenzo Morabito has confirmed United's interest.
Jimmy's current contract with Aalborg FC runs to 2001
If United are interested then his contract does not have any limits.
The future for Jimmy may well be in the North of England

Aalborg are currently lying 5th in the Danish Super League: P 21 W9 D5
L7 39-31 32pts

Man United 31 Mar 1998

Manchester United winger Jordi Cruyff began his latest comeback from injury
when he played in a reserve match at Preston last night.

Cruyff, who has been out since he suffered a hairline fracture of his right
ankle on February 21, scored in the 6-1 victory.

The Dutch international has been dogged by injury all season and he has made
just seven appearances.

In August he suffered ankle ligament damage and, after two games back, he
needed surgery on the injury in November.

A thigh injury thwarted his return at Christmas before he finally fought his
way back to full fitness only to fracture his ankle against Derby in

United board agreed £10m fee
Ferguson put block on Salas signing

manager, turned down the chance to sign Marcelo Salas, the Chile striker,
despite the club being willing to finance the deal, it emerged yesterday.

Martin Edwards, chairman of the club and chief executive of Manchester
United plc, said that the board had agreed a fee of around £10 million for
Salas and had approved his personal terms, but Ferguson decided at the last
minute that he preferred to stick with Andy Cole.

"The board would have supported buying Salas," Edwards said yesterday, "but
as we were reviewing the situation, Cole was knocking in goals for fun. It
was an either-or situation. There was no way we could have played both and
it was a management decision to stick with Cole."

Edwards added that the decision not to sign Salas was made by Ferguson, who
had travelled to South America to watch the striker play, even before his
performance at Wembley against England. "The deal was more or less done,"
Edwards said.

Instead, Salas signed for Lazio, the Italian Serie A club, for a fee
reported to be £12 million. However, Edwards confirmed yesterday that the
fee that Manchester United had agreed was less - around £10 million.

Ferguson and Edwards have worked together for more than ten years and the
United chairman stood by the manager during the club's lean spell in the
early 1990s when Ferguson came close to resigning as United's poor form
took them to the bottom of what was then the first division.

Until Edwards's comments yesterday it was thought that the manager had been
desperate to sign Salas, but that the board of the public company had
refused to come up with the funds.

The club also revealed yesterday that it has earmarked upwards of £60
million to secure the long-term careers of six of their best young players.
Edwards confirmed that Gary and Phil Neville had both signed new,
seven-year contracts and that Ryan Giggs last week put pen to paper on a
five-year deal. In addition, he said, the United board was at present in
negotiations with Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Nicky Butt in an attempt
to extend their tenures at the club.

Giggs has signed a contract worth nearly £20,000 a week. The Neville
brothers will not earn as much, but their deals would still be worth in
excess of £5 million, including bonuses and clauses, over the seven-year
term of their con-tracts.

"We have a commitment to keeping the best young players at this club,"
Edwards said. "We have signed the Neville brothers and Ryan Giggs signed a
new extended deal last Tuesday. We are also in negotiations with Butt,
Scholes and Beckham. The three of them signed long-term deals only two
years ago, but they have come a long way since then and we would hate to
lose them."

Edwards also recognised the need at the club to extend a squad undermined
by injuries and suggested that the manager would be given funding for any
player he chooses. Indeed, United can now be expected to move swiftly into
the transfer market as the club has funds sitting in the bank and Edwards
is keen for them to be used on buying players, to offset against tax on the
balance sheet.

Ferguson has targeted several players, including Gabriel Batistuta, the
Argentina striker, who plays for Fiorentina in Italy, and Rivaldo, the
Brazil international who plays for Barcelona. He has also expressed an
interest in Japp Stam, the Holland defender, and Didier Deschamps, the
France captain.

Edwards has other ambitious plans. He confirmed yesterday that the club
would be looking to extend Old Trafford's capacity by a further 10,000,
taking it to a limit beyond 65,000, and creating a stadium to rival the one
planned in the city for the 2002 Commonwealth Games and even Wembley Stadium.

"We are well aware that we are turning people away from our games in
numbers and we are pursuing ways of increasing the capacity. At this stage,
we can't yet say how, but there are plans in process," Edwards said.

The chairman also revealed that a clause in the club's sponsorship deal
with Sharp had been exercised, giving the Japanese electronics firm a
two-year extension of their contract, which is due to expire in the summer.

In addition, Edwards disclosed that Manchester United plc would take a 25
per cent stake in a hotel to be built on land near to Old Trafford. "These
are exciting times for the club," Edwards said. "We have many plans to
increase revenue and a solid base to build on."

Amid all the razzmatazz of big business, United also welcomed back an old
face. Mick Brown, once assistant manager to Ron Atkinson, is leaving his
position as chief scout at Blackburn Rovers to take up a similar post at
Old Trafford. It is on the efforts of such as Brown that a vast empire has
been built.

Taken from the Man Utd Web site this evening.......


    Manchester United are desperate to
    keep their England midfield trio David
    Beckham, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt,
    chairman Martin Edwards (pictured)
    has revealed.

    All three are already under contract
    until 2001, but United are hoping to
    sign them up to five-year deals which
    would keep them at Old Trafford to

    Edwards said: "We are in negotiations
    with Scholes, Butt and Beckham. They
    signed long-term deals two years ago,
    but they've come a long way since then
    and we'd hate to lose them."

    Gary and Phil Neville have agreed new long-term contracts with
    Manchester United, signing seven-year deals which will keep the
    brothers at Old Trafford until 2005.

    Spokesman Ken Ramsden said: "Both Gary and Phil have agreed
    seven-year deals, while Ryan Giggs signed a five-year deal last
    week. It is all part of the club's policy of committing our best
    young players to the club."

    The Nevilles had been on five-year contracts which were not due to
    expire until 2002, but United director Maurice Watkins confirmed
    the club wanted to reward the pair for their progress.

Here is an article re: Leeds and their air incident

Plane carrying Leeds soccer club crash-lands safely
Copyright © 1998 Nando.net
Copyright © 1998 Associated Press
LONDON (Mar 31, 1998 - 9:19 EST) -- Members of the Leeds United soccer team
escaped serious injury early today when their chartered plane crash-landed
after the pilot aborted a flaming takeoff.

The pilot of the chartered two-engine British Aerospace 748 aircraft aborted
the takeoff after the right engine caught fire.

The plane, which only climbed 150 feet, overshot the Stansted Airport runway
as it touched down, and the nose wheel collapsed as the craft stopped about
300 feet from the perimeter fence.

The only member of the Leeds party to be injured was David O'Leary,
assistant manager and former Irish international, who hurt his shoulder.
Manager George Graham wasn't on the plane, deciding to stay in London
overnight after the team's 3-0 loss to West Ham on Monday.

Despite the crash, Leeds said it planned to go ahead with Saturday's Premier
League game against Barnsley at Elland Road.

"There are no plans for Saturday's game to be canceled at this stage," a
club spokesman said.

O'Leary was injured opening the emergency exit.

"He had to push a window out and he fell out awkwardly," Australian striker
Harry Kewell said. "It was a big scare, and I'm still in a bit of shock, so
I don't want to say too much about it."

Leeds chairman Peter Ridsdale described the dramatic take off.

"Everyone on board could see the flames and the explosion and everyone
seemed to be shouting: 'Fire! There's a fire!"' he said.

"Obviously, we had just taken off. You know the plane is full of fuel and
you just hope you land before it explodes."

The plane, operated by Belfast-based Emerald Air, carried a crew of four and
40 passengers, including 18 players. Apart from O'Leary's shoulder injury,
another had superficial cuts, authorities said.

"Just after we took off we heard a big bang and saw the flames from the
engine on the right-hand side. We were just off the ground," Norwegian
defender Gunner Halle said. "There was a little bit of shouting and I
couldn't believe it."

Melvyn Seymour, the duty manager at Stansted, praised the skill and poise of
the pilot, Capt. John Hacket.

"I would think that they had another 30 seconds before there would have been
a major fire in the whole thing," Seymour said.

The worst air crash involving a British soccer team was 40 years ago, when
eight Manchester United players were killed in a crash in Munich, Germany.
