; Last change: D 4 Nov 99 8:21 pm NEVILLE RULED OUT OF SCOTS CLASH By David Anderson, PA Sport Gary Neville will miss England's Battle of Britain with Scotland after suffering a recurrence of his groin injury. The injury flared up again after Neville had played the full 90 minutes of Manchester United's 2-1 Champions' League victory over Sturm Graz on his comeback. United are refusing to say for how long the defender will be sidelined, but they are certain he will miss both legs of England's Euro 2000 play-off with Scotland later this month. A United spokeswoman said on Wednesday: ``Last night Gary Neville had a recurrence of his injury which means he will not be available for England selection. ``He will also miss the Leicester game on Saturday.'' Neville and England coach Kevin Keegan will be equally disappointed by his latest setback. Keegan, who names his squad on Thursday, wants all his best players available for the two games against the Scots and had pencilled Neville in at right-back. Neville was playing his first senior game in two months after he tore an abductor muscle playing for England against Poland at the start of September.

PREM MANAGERS WOULD RATHER HAVE JAAP THAN SHEARER, OWEN, YORKE, BECKHAM, KEANE... PREMIERSHIP managers would rather have Jaap Stam in their side than David Beckham or Michael Owen. In a survey of every top-flight boss, the Dutch centre-back came top of the list of the players they would most desire in their side if money was no object. Roy Keane was voted second, Beckham third and Dwight Yorke fourth as Manchester United dominated. Only Arsenal's Emmanuel Petit made it from outside Old Trafford into the top five. The survey, conducted on behalf of new PlayStation game LMA Manager, revealed that, not only did they rate United's players as the best but they also doffed their managerial hats to Sir Alex Ferguson for his massive trophy-haul over the decade, culminating in the amazing Treble last season. Also highly-rated for their success at different levels were Peter Reid "for having done a truly outstanding job over several years at Sunderland", Graham Taylor "for taking Watford to two successive promotions and into the Premier League - another fine achievement in a remarkable managerial career", and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger for being "the first continental coach to prove that it is possible to be successful in English football". His fellow bosses were particularly impressed by the studious Frenchman's "authoritative calmness and his grasp of the demands of the job in England". Comments are not attributed to individual managers - the contributors were promised confidentiality - but the results still reveal that Stam's massive presence in defence is considered more important to a team than the creative skills of Beckham, Yorke's strike rate or Keane's drive in the middle of the pitch. Goals win games, but the majority of managers still put a solid defence at the top of their list of priorities. While this rings true for teams in the upper echelons of the Premiership, it is in stark contrast to what seems to be happening in the relegation dogfight. Watford could have Stam, Tony Adams, Denis Irwin and Albert Ferrer in their back line but they would still struggle to stay up, such is their paucity in attack. Likewise Bradford City and Sheffield Wednesday. Sunderland have tightened up at the back with the arrival of Steve Bould in defence and holding midfielder Stefan Schwarz in front of him, but it is Kevin Phillips' 13 goals which have catapulted them into the top three. Any team with a 20-goal striker has a great chance of staying up. Only once since the Premiership began in 1992 has any striker scored more than a dozen league goals and still got relegated: Fabrizio Ravanelli scored 16 for Middlesbrough in 1996-97. Last season's relegated clubs had top scorers on nine (Dougie Freedman of Nottingham Forest), eight (Charlton's Clive Mendonca, including three penalties), and five (Kevin Gallacher of Blackburn). However bad your defence is, if you score a lot of goals you should be OK. Barnsley were considered highly-entertaining and an attacking side two seasons ago but actually they went down having scored only 37 goals, the fourth worst total in the Premiership. It's one thing going forward at every opportunity, but you need to score if you are shipping goals at the other end!

Players shocked at Kidd's departure + Nov Sound files A number of Blackburn Rovers stars have spoken about their shock at the sacking of Brian Kidd as their Manager. Goalkeeper Alan Kelly and Simon Grayson were both shocked to here of his departure and felt that they were close to turning the corner. Grayson said: "Everybody was gob-smacked, obviously there was speculation. If anything, we thought something would have happened, it would have been last weekend. We feel that it was only a matter of time before we turned things around. It's only fourteen games into the season, it does take time to gel in this division. But obviously Jack Walker felt it was time to make a change." "As players we have to be accountable for managers being sacked. From a player's point of view, we are more than capable for getting promotion, we've been looking at ourselves rather than anyone else, Once you step over that white line it is up to us as players. You won't find a more honest and passionate person in football. It's a sad day, he (Kidd) threw everything into his work." Both players have pledged to give their full support to whoever replaces Kidd and try to battle their way out of the bottom half.
