Barry Daily Comment:
Manchester United's Champions League hopes could be boosted by an injury to
Juventus playmaker Zinedine Zidane.
The World Player of the Year has been out of action since March 17 with a
knee injury and is doubtful for Wednesday's semi-final first leg.
Juventus coach Carlo Ancelotti told The Sun:
 ''At the moment Zidane will not play but things could change.''

Subject: Manchester United - an American perspective - Chris The Yank - "Through The Eyes Of a Yank" www.red11.org presents a new page on the WWW: Manchester United - an American perspective - Chris The Yank - http://www.red11.org/mufc/cty/ Manchester United from the perspective of a teenage American Boy Hello fellow Manchester supporters, My name is Chris Vasseur. I am only 15 years old. I am from Orlando, Florida, US, home of Disney World. This is my new column. It is basically Manchester United through the eyes of an American Boy. I will give you all little tidbits about Manchester United. In my first column, I will tell you my history of how I became a United supporter. Also, I will give my analysis on the last match and comings and goings and I will even throw in some tidbits about the English National Team. In the winter of 1995, I visited the great city of London on my fatherís business trip. We were in a pub when a Manchester game was on the television in the corner. There was man who was almost bald running up and down making superb plays. His name was Eric Cantona, "The King". There was just something special about him. He was unlike any other player. He had this uncanny ability to score and pass. I was glued to the television set. The next day, I went and bought a 1993-94 Manchester United Double winning football. I still have it and cherish it. I went nuts trying to find a Cantona jersey. I went to four malls looking for it, but to my dismay I couldnít find anything. After coming home, I realized that the United States did not have any Manchester United apparel. I soon gave up on finding anything to do with Manchester because there were no televised games, no jerseys and no one knew who I was talking about. The only Manchester thing I could see was highlights on ESPN on a soccer program. When I got America Online in 1997, I went into an UK Football Chat and people were talking about Manchester United. I quickly found a site and went to it, sat there for a couple hours reading everything I could. I was hooked! Every week, I would look and see their score. And every time I could, I went into the UK chat and would watch the play-by-play. One night, someone was offering a Manchester United newsletter. I said I wanted it and that is how I met Barry Leeming the site director for www.red11.org. Since I live in the United States, I can only catch the highlights on Sunday nights, and Champions League matches on ESPN, or once in a while Fox Sports Net will have Pay-per-views on with Manchester. The last two matches I have seen were Manchester take on the Italian giants Inter Milan on March 3rd and March 17th. The match on the 3rd, two days before my birthday, was a thrilling match. It was the perfect gift that United could give. It was action packed. With Ronaldo out, Manchester took advantage. The striking was superb. Two crosses from my favorite player, David Beckham, and two beautiful headers from the Trinidad and Tobago International, Dwight Yorke put Manchester up 2-0. No matter what Inter Milan did the defense for Manchester stopped them. Jaap Stam and Ronny Johnsen especially stepped up and gave United a huge boost. The game on the 17th was much more of a nail biter. The game was being played in San Siro so that meant that all Manchester had to do was score one goal and it would have been pretty much in the bag. The only problem was Ronaldo was back and ready to slay United. The game started out a bit slow. Ryan Giggs was making some terrible plays but I still cheered him. My friend Peter and I were nervous the whole time. Ronaldo looked very rusty and a bit out of shape. He was not making the long runs that you are accustomed to seeing him make. Still, he was a great force and was still dangerous. The biggest clash in the game came in the 29th minute when Argentinean International Diego Simeone ran into United keeper Peter Schmeichel. Simeone left the game and big sigh of relief came from me. It was half time at the score of nil to nil. In the 58th minute, Inter Milan decided that Ronaldo was not effectively attacking, so Inter brought in Nicola Ventola to give them a spark. In the 62nd minute, Ventola found an opening and struck the ball right over Peter Schmeichelís shoulder. At this time I began to get very nervous. I was getting a little worried, but I still had faith in United. As time passed, I wasnít some much hoping for a goal, but for United to keep Inter from scoring again and forcing a golden goal situation or the dreaded penalty shootout. Then United substituted Paul Scholes for Ronny Johnsen. I was in shock when they did this because Johnsen was making very good plays. Then in the twilight of the game, in the 88th minute, Andy Cole set Paul Scholes for a goal. The 79, 528 fans were stunned. At this time, I precede to go nuts running outside jumping and screaming in the middle of the street. It was truly a great goal. I thought this was a fluke. I knew Scholes was a great player, but I didnít think he would be the one to put the dagger in the heart of Inter Milan. I was wrong; because ten days later, Paul Scholes scored three brilliant goals against Poland. Even though Manchester tied, they won on aggregate 3-1. It was the all-important away goal that lifted United. A couple days later, I saw the Champions League draw; we have to play Juventus, the team that beat us last year. But you know what they say - revenge is sweet. I will do a column after the Wimbledon match. I hope everyone has a Happy Easter. -Chris the Yank RED at night UNITED delight!

Subject: *IMPORTANT* Ticket Prices REDITORIAL from OUR SALFORD LASS Martin Edwards and ticket prices It must be wonderful to be rich like our Martin. To look at ticket prices from a purely objective standpoint. To be able to say that rises are fair because our prices are below most other clubs in the Premiership. Only someone who has never had to worry about money in his life can dismiss the difficulties of thousands of genuine, committed fans the way he does. To him, an extra two pounds on the price of a ticket is nothing - to many fans who have already been priced out of the game, it might as well be two hundred pounds. To people like me, who are just about clinging on to the United bandwagon, that two pounds per game could finally be the straw that broke the camels back. I (and hundreds like me) were already worrying ourselves silly about how we are going to pay for our season tickets in less than two months time. If the cost goes up by two pounds a game, it could be impossible. If I do keep my season ticket, how do I afford cup games (11 so far this season, with another two at least coming in the next week or so)? Or do I give up going to away games? I suppose that will be the answer - I've already missed a number this season because I simply can't afford it. It's not the actual cost, Martin, that will get rid of yet more of your troublesome "traditional" fans, but the increase - is it really too difficult for someone of your intellect to understand? Or is this just what you want? A stadium full of wealthy suited gents talking into their mobile phones, with their beautifully coiffured girlfriends on their arms? Well if it is, don't start asking for atmosphere for the Euro games that earn you all that money - because there won't be anyone left to generate it. I am so angry, I can barely speak.

Subject: FERGIE: WE HAVE TREBLE CHANCE Alex Ferguson has refused to agree with Manchester United chief executive Martin Edwards' assessment that the treble is ''absolutely impossible.'' The Premiership leaders began a hectic week at Wimbledon in the League, and now face semi-finals against Juventus on Wednesday in the Champions League and Arsenal in the FA Cup next Sunday. But Ferguson insists that his young side have the courage and conviction to pull through in the battle for all three honours. ''We have handled it so far and we are strong enough - there's no question about that. I have no fears at all,'' Ferguson said. ''All the seasons I have had here as a manager have been exciting. But we are just keeping our heads down at the moment. Nobody is talking about the treble. ''It is all very well getting excited about but, at the end of the day, we are taking it as one game at a time. ''You do hope you can steer clear of injuries but if you do pick up one or two, the squad we have now is capable of handling that. ''It is a good deep squad of players which should give me alternatives to make sure we handle things. ''Other than that, we try and keep the confidence up. Our self belief has been brilliant. We've been determined and focused on every game. ''All we are looking at is one game at a time and that's the best way to do it. ''If you look too far ahead, you can get sidetracked. The players have been fantastic. One game at a time and they've handled it.

Subject: United are better now - Inzaghi By Daniele Bresciani Sunday, April 4, 1999 Alex Ferguson's dream of European glory received a dramatic boost last night - from the man charged with destroying that ambition when Manchester United entertain Juventus on Wednesday. Juve's Filippo Inzaghi, currently Italy's deadliest striker, fears Ferguson's United could be the one to finally emulate Sir Matt Busby's European Cup-winning team of 1968. Last season, Juve lost 3-2 at Old Trafford before Inzaghi's goal in Turin snatched a 1-0 win and they went on to reach the final, losing to Real Madrid. But Inzaghi, who has scored five goals in his last five games for Italy, fears Juve could be in for a torrid time in the Champions League semi-final. 'United caused us problems last year and now they are even better,' he said. 'They are more experienced and have strengthened their team. Now they're good in every section: defence, midfield and, of course, in attack.' Under coach Carlo Ancelotti, who took over from Marcello Lippi in February, Juve are unbeaten and Ancelotti appears confident, telling Inzaghi he would never look at him again if he didn't score against United. Juve will be without the injured duo of Alessandro Del Piero and France's World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane.

Subject: KEMP PREDICTS TITLE GLORY FOR OLD TRAFFORD Wimbledon coach David Kemp insisted that Manchester United were still on course to win the title even after the Dons had dented their championship chances at Selhurst Park. United boss Alex Ferguson failed to show for the post-match press conference following his side's 1-1 draw, which allowed Chelsea to close the gap on the leaders with their victory at Charlton. At least second-placed Arsenal drew at Southampton to leave United still four points clear at the top of the table but they had to endure a frustrating afternoon as the Dons produced a stirling defensive performance. Midfielder Jason Euell gave the home side the lead after just five minutes and although David Beckham equalised on the stroke of half-time, United were unable to make their overwhelming second-half possession tell. Kemp, who is leading the side along with Mick Harford as boss Joe Kinnear continues to recuperate at home following a heart attack scare, declared: "A League and European Cup double is likely as they're a top quality team. "It's not to put down Arsenal and Chelsea down but United are four points clear, they're an excellent team and I think they will stay at the top." At least United, who desperately missed the commanding presence of injured centre-back Jaap Stam, did not pick up any obvious injuries ahead of next Wednesday's Champions' Cup quarter-final first leg against Juventus. But they never rose to the heights which they reached in beating the Dons 5-2 away last season and 5-1 earlier this campaign at Old Trafford as they came up against a side which had suffered three consecutive defeats. Kemp said: "Some of the talk beforehand about us having to eat sheep heads because of one of the more unlikely terms in their contracts if we got beaten by five goals was a bit of an insult. "A couple of poor performances and everyone's on our case but we've responded brilliantly and showed we can play - against the best."
