Soccernet - FERGUSON BACKS BECKS FOR EURO PRIZE By David Anderson, PA Sport, Tokyo David Beckham is one of a handful of Manchester United players who should be in the running for the European Footballer of the Year award, according to Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson is delighted that the England midfielder is a leading contender for the coveted prize, which has been won in the past by United legends Denis Law, Bobby Charlton and George Best. And Ferguson believes nearly half of last season's Treble-winning side should be vying for the honour, which will be announced at the end of this week. "It would be fantastic for a Manchester United player to win it," said the United boss. "I don't know if any other of our players have been nominated, but in the context of last season I think four or five players could be nominated. "If it is David Beckham we will all be delighted." Beckham would certainly be a hugely popular winner with Japanese football fans and he has been mobbed since he arrived on Saturday. He has dominated the pre-match build-up in the media and the Japanese are thrilled by the prospect of seeing him play. Japanese television has been screening features on Beckham, including footage of wife Posh Spice singing with an arrow pointing her out for the less well-informed viewers.

Whiteside: Back to school aged 26! - Soccernet Norman Whiteside leaned against the bar in one of his old haunts, his hand wrapped comfortably around a pint of Guinness. He no longer had to fear that, by the time he was halfway down his first glass, some well-wisher would be on the phone to Sir Alex Ferguson warning him that his wayward star was letting down his hair and Manchester United. Twelve years ago those faceless, nameless informers seemed to be under every beer mat when Whiteside, Bryan Robson and Paul McGrath were creating as many legends in the Cheshire pubs as Law, Best and Charlton ever did on the Old Trafford pitch. When injury finished Whiteside at 26 - the same age Best went over the hill - you did not have to be a born pessimist to predict that another Belfast boy was about to stumble down the same road to ruin. Whiteside confounded everybody, maybe even himself. Faced suddenly by a swiftly retreating life of luxury and the prospect of feeding himself and his family for the next 40 years, he went back to school. After that, he moved to university from which he emerged three years later as a qualified podiatrist with a BSc honours degree. Today, he has a flourishing private practice specialising in the computerised diagnosis and correction of abnormalities 'anywhere between the hip and the big toe'. Funded by the Professional Footballers' Association, the players' union, he holds clinics for young players at 30 League clubs. Next year he expects that number to double as the game wakes up to the need for preventative medicine for youngsters who might some day be worth millions. It is, ironically, just the sort of treatment which might have prolonged Whiteside's own career. To the last generation of Old Trafford regulars, 16-year-old Whiteside was the answer to their dreams. He had power, vision, flair and a toughness that warned everybody that if there was any serious kicking to be done he would be the one to do it. Unfortunately, he lacked pace. By his own brutal admission he was 'slow as a carthorse'. He believes now that had somebody corrected his unathletic gait he could have speeded up and he might have been spared some of his 11 operations as well as the knee injury that finished him. 'I remember the day the knee finally went,' he said. 'September 20, 1990 - I can give you the hour and minute, if you like. I had moved to Everton two years earlier and I was playing a five-aside in the gym. 'I can't recall the name of the kid who tackled me but I went one way, my knee went the other, and I knew from the stabbing pain that that was it. Eventually, Everton decided I could never reach my old standard and I agreed. 'Of course, I got compensation, but from earning perhaps £200,000 a year I suddenly found there was nothing coming in. There was no point moping around, looking for sympathy. I spent a couple of weeks in tears then set out to find a new career. 'Trouble was, I had nothing to show for my education in Belfast. I hadn't had any. I was so single-minded, so blinkered about being a footballer that I hadn't done any studying. So my first target had to be GCSEs. That was very hard. 'It meant going back to sit in a classroom of 13 and 14-year-olds. There were a few double-takes when they recognised me and a few sniggers when I, Norman Whiteside of Manchester United, Everton and Northern Ireland, first put my hand up and asked: "Please sir, may I go to the toiletî. 'But there was no other, easier way to get what I needed.' After that came A-levels, then three years full-time at Salford University. To help pay the bills Whiteside spoke at as many sports dinners as he could, often arriving home late and snatching a few hours sleep before leaving for university. For the last few years, Whiteside has been at Old Trafford on match days welcoming guests to the corporate hospitality suites. He offers that as proof that he did not leave United under a cloud or in an alcoholic haze. 'Fergie arrived in England carrying a big whip and determined to be a disciplinarian,' he said. 'He had heard the rumours that Paul, Robbo and I were out drinking every night and right from the start he began to get phone calls telling him we had been spotted out on the town again.' Whiteside never denied that he 'liked a few'. He merely disputed the amount involved and the time it was consumed. But the newlyarrived Ferguson was certainly not convinced and there were days, he admitted, when one of the triumvirate turned up for training so heavily hung-over that all the United backroom staff could do was dump him in a hot bath and sweat the alcohol out of him. 'I always got on well with Fergie and I was completely honest with him,' said Whiteside. 'Whenever the three of us went out for a drink we knew that somebody would ring the club and report us. 'The following morning I would be there early, knock on the manager's door and admit: "I went out for a drink last nightî. It's called getting your retaliation in first. 'Years later, I met Fergie at a dinner and he told me that after getting the calls he used to lie awake at night rehearsing what he was going to say to me and Paul. When I went in and confessed he was lost for words. Poor old Paul wasn't so quick and used to catch it in the neck every time. 'In the end, though, I agreed with the boss it was time to move on. He thought I had gone stale and I had the chance to earn better money with Everton. Because I had grown up at Old Trafford I was probably one of the lowest-paid players in the side. 'People assumed we were all millionaires, but I was probably on about £300 a week when my goal - the one out of the 80 that everybody remembers me by - won the FA Cup for United. 'In two years at Goodison I earned more than I did in all my years at Old Trafford. When I quit playing a tabloid newspaper offered me a lot of money - in excess of £25,000 - to slag off Fergie. I turned it down. 'I'm not the sort of guy to do that and, anyway, I have nothing against him. We always got on well and when United won the title he invited me into his office to join his family celebration. He must have known that meant sending out for an extra case of champagne.' That is a sample of the sharp, self-deprecating wit that eased Whiteside out of some tight corners during a sometimes turbulent career. He was sent off only once, and that during his unsatisfying Indian summer at Everton, but he was regularly booked and accused of arriving late 'with intent to injure'. He blames that on his slowness rather than meanness. Although AC Milan offered £1.5million for him when he was an 18-year-old striker, he accepts that he blossomed only when he moved into midfield. 'I was slow off the mark, but quick upstairs,' he said. 'I had a good footballing brain and was able to see the big picture. Some players never learn to do that and others, especially Eric Cantona, have been brilliant at it. 'I didn't want to go to Italy so young. I planned to spend a certain number of years with United before sampling a foreign culture but ... well, it didn't work out that way. 'Still, I enjoyed it. I've no regrets. After all this time I still miss the dressing-room banter, the travel, the excitement of the World Cups with Northern Ireland. But I don't envy the present-day players their money or the constant attention they get. 'They're icons now, right up there with the pop music boys. We had our share of pressure and hero-worship, but nothing like this. Frankly, I've had all the adulation I want, thanks. Now I just want to get on with a real life.' Man.

UP FOR THE CUP - Off. Site Manchester United will be looking to end a poor sequence tonight - Thursday when they entertain Nottingham Forest in The Times FA Youth Cup. The Reds have not won a single match in the competition for almost three years, confounding their status as Youth Cup kings with a record eight wins. The Busby Babes famously won the competition in its first five years from 1953 to 1957, and more recently, Giggs, Beckham, Scholes, Butt and the Nevilles have all collected winners' medals in their teens. United's last Youth Cup victory in any round was at Anfield on 7 January 1997, when Wes Brown helped the side to overcome Liverpool and Michael Owen. In the following round, the Reds lost 3-2 to Watford in a replay, and in subsequent seasons, they've crashed out at the first hurdle, to Blackburn Rovers in 1997/98, and Everton in 1998/99. In the meantime, they've seen Leeds United, Everton and West Ham United lift the prestigious trophy with the aid of some exciting young players. Jonathan Woodgate, Francis Jeffers and Joe Cole have all made their mark in the Premiership since playing in the FA Youth Cup Final. Whether Manchester United have a starlet who could follow them remains to be seen. Certainly, the club has a great history in the Youth Cup, and we can look eagerly to the competition in the search for the next Duncan Edwards, Mark Hughes or Ryan Giggs. The latest crop of Youth Cup hopefuls, tutored by Dave Williams and Neil Bailey, take on Forest at Gigg Lane, Bury, tonight Thursday evening at 7pm.

Carling Report Manchester Utd v Palmeiras 30/11/99 10.00 Tokyo Manchester Utd (1) 1 Palmeiras (0) 0 FT Keane 35 The Japanese fans had come to see David Beckham, but instead it was United's other wing king Ryan Giggs who produced the moment of skill that won Manchester United the Toyota Cup as they beat Palmeiros 1-0 in Tokyo. Click image for full size On 35 minutes Giggs produced a piece of classic wing play down the left when he sent over a deep cross, which completely deceived Palmeiras goalkeeper Marcos, and Roy Keane netted from close range. Keane's strike made yet another piece of football history for Sir Alex Ferguson's trailblazers and they have become the first British side to win the inter-continental challenge between the champions of Europe and South America. With the huge trophy comes the title of the best team in the world and the cynics could argue that United need not now bother going to Brazil to compete in FIFA's World Club Championship. United's victory in the close contest in Tokyo's National Stadium will prove popular with the hordes of Japanese who had turned out to support them, decked in their Beckham shirts. The Japanese certainly know how to put on a show, and the fans were treated to a laser and fireworks display before the game. After such a build-up the first half was something of a disappointment. Ferguson did his bit and fielded a strong side to do the match justice. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was deployed as a lone striker, with Beckham and Giggs supporting him down the flanks and Paul Scholes from midfield. United fashioned the first chance inside the opening two minutes when Nicky Butt, who shrugged off his wrist injury to play, was fouled 25 yards out on the right and Beckham curled the free-kick just over. Click image for full size Palmeiras' main attacking thrusts were coming from former Newcastle striker Faustino Asprilla who has lost none of the skills which used to delight the Toon Army. From one chance he beat Mickael Silvestre in the area only for the dependable Jaap Stam to block his shot. The Palmeiras fans thought their side should have had a penalty when Alex went down under a challenge from Silvestre just inside the area, but referee Hellmut Krug waved play on. Mark Bosnich, who was arguably United's man of the match, came to his side's aid when first he made a fine stop from Alex, after the Palmeiras striker had been played in by Asprilla, before he saved a header from Junior. United brought some life to the dull proceedings when they opened the scoring on 35 minutes when Giggs and Keane combined to score. Butt went close to a second three minutes later with a 30-yard drive which was just wide of Marcos' left-hand post. Silvestre preserved United's lead when he cleared Alex's header from his own goalline with his boot. Solsjkaer had struggled up front, and it came as little surprise when he was replaced by Dwight Yorke at the interval. Click image for full size The second half was much more open, and Yorke and Asprilla went close in the opening couple of minutes. The game was finally living up to its billing as the world championship, and Sampaio made a great challenge on Scholes before the England midfielder flicked a backheeled effort over the bar and Butt went close with a curled effort. Arce then gifted United possession, and Yorke fed Giggs only for the Welshman to shoot wide from the great opportunity. The chances were coming thick and fast, and Bosnich smothered an effort from substitute Oseas before United screamed in vain for a penalty for a challenge on Yorke. Alex remained a threat and he fired wide following a strong run before he headed just inches wide. Palmeiras were getting closer, and Bosnich made a fantastic point-blank save from Oseas before he denied substitute Euller. Bosnich continued to thwart the Brazilians and made another finger-tip save from that man Alex again. Images © Shaun Botterill/ALLSPORT Image Transfer By : Man Utd: Bosnich, Irwin, Stam, G.

BOSNICH HAS THE ANSWERS By David Anderson, PA Sport, Tokyo Mark Bosnich believes he has answered the critics who have been sniping at him since he joined Manchester United. Bosnich came under fire after he endured a torrid start to his second spell at Old Trafford. The Australian international was criticised for his poor kicking and was demoted to third in the goalkeeping pecking order after he picked up a hamstring injury and Massimo Taibi arrived from Venezia. He has slowly regained his form and produced his best display yet as he shut out Palmeiras to help United lift the Toyota Cup in Tokyo's National Stadium. Bosnich was praised by rival managers Sir Alex Ferguson and Luiz Felipe Scolari after he made a string of vital saves in the 1-0 win. He feels that performance should be enough to silence those who were so quick to criticise him during the first few weeks of the season. "Maybe some of the people who don't know me and said some of those things they did beforehand, well obviously they won't eat their words - but maybe they will have a little think to themselves," he said. Bosnich reckons he can improve even more on his display against the South American champions. "I was pretty happy with my performance but I would hope that I've got a little bit more left," he said. "It was a fantastic game and a fantastic experience, and from a personal point of view I was just so proud to be involved and be part of it." Bosnich attributed his return to form to the coaching staff at Old Trafford and his team-mates. He was at pains to stress how much goalkeeping coach Tony Coton has helped him recover from his early disappointments. "Fortunately I've had a lot of help along the way," he said on MUTV. "TC, the goalkeeping coach, has been fantastic with me and he has helped me a great deal and so have people like Steve McClaren and Jimmy Ryan and my team-mates," he said. "The defence in front of me is fantastic, and when you've got guys as outstanding as they are it's a pleasure to play behind them. "I'm really, really proud to be playing with these players because they are such a great bunch." After the disappointment of losing the Charity Shield to Arsenal, Bosnich is delighted to help the Treble-winners lift their first trophy of this season. But he knows that the hard work is just beginning for him and United. "I've said all along that one swallow does not make a summer, and there are still a lot of games to be played yet this season," he said. "We're not kidding anyone and we've got just as big a game next Wednesday against Valencia and also against Everton on Saturday. "It's business as usual, and we will just roll on to the next game."
