Subject: BERG, MAY BOOST UNITED DEFENCE By David Anderson, PA Sport Henning Berg and David May are determined to increase the already intense competition for places in Manchester United's defence. Berg made only his eighth start of the season in United's 3-1 FA Cup win over Middlesbrough on Sunday and he hopes he can force his way up the defensive pecking order at Old Trafford. May, who has only started two Worthington Cup games this campaign, is also ready to restake his claim following his recovery from a calf injury. The former Blackburn pair are vying with the likes of Jaap Stam, Ronny Johnsen, Denis Irwin and the Neville brothers for starting places in the backline, while this season has also seen Wes Brown graduate to the senior squad. Berg, 29, who arrived in a £5million transfer from Ewood Park in August 1997, admitted it was frustrating watching so many games from the sidelines, but he remains undaunted. "I was delighted to be in the team against Middlesbrough," he told the Manchester Evening News. "It's definitely frustrating when you're not playing because all I want to do is play football. "When you aren't playing obviously you are not happy. "Squad rotation can be frustrating at times because everybody wants to play every week, but with the number of players here at United somebody has got to be disappointed all the time. "You just have to make sure you're playing as well as you can and then maybe you'll get in the team. "The more competitions we are in, the more chance I have of getting a game." May, 28, has been dogged by injuries for the past 18 months and he still feels he is good enough to do a job for United. "I've had horrendous misfortune injury-wise. Now I have just got to get match-fit and be patient," he said. "The squad we have now is much stronger than it was two years ago so it is going to be a difficult task ahead. "But I'll bide my time and hope I am good enough when an opportunity arises." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: WENGER: FERGUSON ATTACK 'CLUMSY' By Paul Walker, PA Sport Arsene Wenger has branded Alex Ferguson's attack on his Double-winning Arsenal side "clumsy". Ferguson was up to his mind games tricks again at the weekend when suggesting that some of Wenger's men relished turning games into battles. Fabian Caballero, Arsenal's Argentinian striker, unwittingly backed up Ferguson's claims in Monday night's 4-2 FA Cup win at Preston with a flailing arm that laid out Ryan Kidd during the build up to the Gunners' third goal. But Wenger tried to brush off Ferguson's comments after watching his side book a fourth round tie at home to Wolves. He said: "It doesn't bother me at all. It's just, I think, a clumsy statement to make. "We don't need to start fights to win matches. I think what he (Ferguson) said was wrong. "It's unfair because we try to respect every team and let referees do their job. "It's disappointing to hear another manager talk like that. "I personally think we have to keep a good image of our game and that starts by respecting every other team. "You don't win championships or win cups by just fighting. "It is wrong to say things like that. "If you look at the Fair Play table we have got 37 yellow cards and Manchester United have got 38. "Many other teams have got more." Preston boss David Moyes had no doubts about the Caballero incident. "There was an elbow used and Ryan was upset," he insisted, " Kidd added: "I got an arm across the face and I'm disappointed the linesman didn't see it." FA referees' supremo Colin Downey expressed sympathy for Gallagher, who missed the offence. He said: "These things happen. He was probably following the ball out to the left. "What it shows is how hard a job refereeing is. I watched that game on TV and didn't spot anything until the re-runs later. "And, as far as the linesman is concerned, there were lots of players bunched up in the box. It was so easy to miss. "As far as any further action, I doubt it."

Subject: HIDEN: WHY I WON'T SUE MAN U taken from LUFC website Austrian international Martin Hiden today maintained that he had no intention of suing the richest club in the world, over the injury that will see him out of first team action until next August. Hours after work was completed on a newly laid pitch at Old Trafford in November, Leeds kicked off against Man United, and within 30 minutes Martin had suffered the cruciate ligament injury that has wrecked his season, as the turf beneath him slipped. Speaking exclusively to United's official website, the cultured centre half explained why he will not pursue legal action, despite the fact that he steadfastly lays the blame for his nine months on the sidelines on a pitch that had not had time to take root. The 25 year old, who had been in magnificent form prior to his injury, admits he has been deeply depressed in the days since the calamitous blow at Old Trafford, but now three weeks after the operation to rebuild his knee, he has set his heart on returning to training before this season is out.

From: "Seamus Gallen" Subject: Brian Kidd I was so sorry to see Kidd go. I'll always remember him for three things. 1. The rebound headed goal against Benfica in 1968. 2. The wrangle with Ferguson when Schmeichel was sent off against Charlton in the FA cup match a few years ago. It seems that Alex wanted to take off a forward, but Kidd wanted to take Paul Parker off and put Keane at right-back. Kidd won, and so did we, 3-1. 3. The handstands on the pitch after Bruce headed the winner against Wednesday at Old Trafford, April 1993. Best wishes to all for 1999.
