Subject: Dennis Viollet: one of the game's great natural goalscorers Monday, March 8, 1999 Soccernet Peter Johnson on the Busby Babe who will always have a special place in the hearts of United fans Sir Bobby Charlton last night paid tribute to Dennis Viollet who has died at his home in Jacksonville, Florida. Viollet, who was 65, had a special bond with Charlton. As Busby Babes they both survived the Manchester United plane disaster. In fact, Viollet was sitting next to his team-mate when the aircraft crashed on take-off at Munich in 1958. Both were thrown clear and though Viollet suffered head injuries he recovered quickly enough to play in the rebuilt team that season. Sir Bobby, now a director at Old Trafford, said: 'I've lost a good pal, a fantastic player, a really good lad and I'm sad it has happened. He has been ill for some time but you always think that people are going to come through. 'Everybody at the club will be incredibly sorry. There is a special bond among all the survivors of Munich. I like to think he would have been pleased by being remembered as a great player. He was a little injury-prone and because of that probably didn't play as often as he should have which is why I think he only played twice for England. 'But in the box he was deadly, a really great striker. What's more he still holds the record as top League scorer for United in one season when he got 32 goals. I'm glad he still has that.' It was on his way back from a reunion of survivors in Munich in 1997 that Viollet suffered the first symptoms of the brain tumour which eventually caused his death. He spent more than 20 years living and coaching soccer in the United States but he will be remembered as one of the great, natural goalscorers of the post-war era. Dark, lean and misleadingly casual, he was as prolific as Jimmy Greaves but played a more creative role in midfield. According to United manager Sir Matt Busby: 'Nobody made scoring goals look so easy.' Viollet played in an attack in which Charlton and England centre forward Tommy Taylor claimed some memorable goals while Viollet, an astute reader of a game, usually appeared unseen at the far post to tap the ball in. Manchester-born, he joined United at 16 and spent 13 years with the club. He played almost 300 games, scored 178 times and his 159 goals in 259 League appearances is still a club record. He hit 20 or more goals in six successive seasons and netted his record 32 goals in the 1959-60 campaign. He did it by stealth rather than sweat. He seemed rarely to move at more than strolling pace and that may be why he was underrated by England. Viollet played only two games at the start of the 1960s. By then his United career, which brought him two League championship medals and an FA Cup Final appearance, was nearing its end. In 1962 he moved to Stoke to join the team of veteran stars, including Sir Stanley Matthews, assembled by manager Tony Waddington. He helped them win the Second Division championship and scored 59 goals in 182 games before emigrating to the soccer boom in the States. When that waned, he returned home to coach Northern Ireland's Linfield as well as Preston and Crewe. Later he went back to the States to become a successful and respected coach in the universities. He is survived by his second wife Helen and their daughter Rachel, the tennis player.

Subject: They wore black armbands by RED KELLY I'm not going to write a match report today, but would like to offer a few thoughts on a day when Manchester United paid tribute to one of the finest players to have pulled on the Red shirt. I was back in the Stretford End, it's not the Stretford of old, but it's the best we've got at the moment and it would have been the place I'd wanted to be to say farewell to Dennis. When the team ran out wearing black armbands I felt a pride well up inside, especially in the young lads on the pitch. I can't think of the words to descibe how they looked, but they just looked right. It was a Manchester United moment, special to us as part of a great club. An announcement was made about why the armbands were being worn and when the short tribute was over the whole stadium rose to it's feet and clapped. A fitting tribute to Dennis from his United family. I felt disappointed that the soul brothers weren't playing which left Ole up front to shoulder the attacking burden alone. To me this doesn't do justice to his skills and dedication because he had no partner, although he played well under the circumstances. The back four played well, with Nev on a mission and going as close as you can go without scoring. The two B's in the centre struck up a good partnership with Wesley again looking class. Ole went off to a standing ovation and so did Scholesy. It was a great pity that we couldn't end the day with a win to celebrate Dennis' life, but I have a feeling he did that himself. Just think about it for a moment: he was born in 33, died in 99 at around 3pm on the 6th day of the third month. It seems that Dennis scored his last hat-trick on Saturday. A fine Red indeed.

Subject: FA Cup sixth round preview Chelsea v Manchester United Kick off 20.00pm Referee Paul Durkin (Portland, Dorset) Odds Chelsea 11-8, Manchester United 7-4, draw 2-1 Form Chelsea WDWLD, Manchester United WWDWD Leading scorers Manchester United: Yorke (16); Chelsea: Poyet (11) Story so far Third Round Manchester United 3 - 1 Middlesbrough (Cole, Irwin, Giggs) Chelsea 2 - 0 Oldham (Vialli 2) Fourth Round Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool (Yorke, Solskjaer) Oxford 1 - 1 Chelsea (Leboeuf pen) Replay: Chelsea 4 - 2 Oxford (Wise, Zola, Forsell 2) Fifth Round Manchester United 1 - 0 Fulham (Cole) Sheffield Wednesday 0 - 1 Chelsea (Di Matteo) Sixth round Manchester United 0 - 0 Chelsea Team news For United, Jaap Stam returns from suspension and Ryan Giggs has recovered from the broken nose he sustained against Inter Milan a week ago. Nicky Butt and Ronny Johnsen are still injured. Frank Leboeuf, Celestine Babayaro and Dennis Wise all return for Chelsea. Dan Petrescu has been on international duty, so the increasingly impressive Bjarne Goldbaek is likely to fill his role on the right of midfield. The implications With European ties looming next week this replay is a match both sides could have done without, a fact Alex Ferguson might have reflected on before leaving both Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke on the bench on Sunday. Asked to forage alone, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ineffective, and it's hard to imagine Ferguson being as negative again. With Leboeuf back in the side alongside Marcel Desailly, Chelsea should prove harder to break down than at the weekend when, reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo, only wayward finishing from Paul Scholes and a brace of smart saves from Ed de Goey ensured the sides played out their third draw of the season. United's reversion to 4-4-2 is likely to afford Gianfranco Zola more space as Phil Neville, deputed to man-mark the Sardinian on Sunday, makes way for Stam. Zola's ability to find space between the United centre-halves brought Chelsea their equaliser in the league game at Old Trafford earlier this year, and if he can create a chance or two Tore Andre Flo is good enough to take them. Scholes was also dismissed on Sunday, with referee Paul Durkin drawing criticism from Ferguson over both red cards. Gianluca Vialli remained tight-lipped on the issue, but is unlikely to make Durkin's life any easier as he recalls Dennis Wise to what will be a crowded midfield on an iffy surface. The game goes ahead just three days after the first tie despite the FA's 10-day rule, intended to give the police time to organise adequate measures for replays. It is a measure of the authorities regard for European competition that a category A match such as this can be arranged at such short notice.

Subject: Cantona to return in tribute to Cruyff tonight BARCELONA, Spain, March 9 - Former French international Eric Cantona makes a brief return on Wednesday in Johan Cruyff's testimonial at the Nou Camp. Cruyff, who as Barcelona coach guided the Catalans to their sole European Cup triumph in 1992, returns to his former club on Wednesday to coach his "Dream Team" against the current Barca side. Cantona is among seven players who have offered to join up as reinforcements to Cruyff's team in tribute to the great Dutchman, who earlier this year was voted the European Footballer of the Century. Paul Gascoigne (England), Jorge Campos (Mexico), Mario Jardel and Aloisio Pires Alves (both Brazil), Joao Pinto (Portugal) and Luc Nilis (Belgium) are other top names confirmed for the gala occasion. They will join the likes of Michael Laudrup, Hristo Stoichkov and Ronald Koeman in the reunited Dream Team. Cantona, voted greatest player in the history of Manchester United in a recent poll of the club's fans, retired from soccer at the end of the 1996-97 season after figuring high in the English game, first with Leeds United and then at Old Trafford. He left to pursue an acting career and last played a high-profile game in August in a match to raise money for the Munich Memorial Fund. Wednesday night's game, expected to be a 100,000 sell-out, could have been an even more star-studded event but for a number of high-profile withdrawals. Ronaldo, the Brazil and Inter Milan striker, had to decline an invitation as he was struggling with a knee injury. Cruyff's own son, Jordi, will also miss the game after his current club Celta Vigo, where he is on loan from Manchester United, ruled he was not match-fit. Albert Ferrer, a youngster at Barcelona during Cruyff's reign, will not be able to attend as his new club Chelsea take on Manchester United in an F.A. Cup quarter-final replay on the same night.

Subject: UNITED PREPARED TO DO IT THE HARD WAY Alex Ferguson is not bothered that Manchester United's route to Wembley is being littered with so many imposing obstacles. United suffered a double FA Cup whammy on Sunday when they were held to a draw by Chelsea, who played with 10 men for half of the game, before they found out that if they get past the Blues they will face Arsenal in the semi-finals on April 12. Such a draw sums up United's luck with the little numbered balls this season and they have been handed difficult ties in each round of the competition. In the third round United were paired with then high-flying Middlesbrough, before they came out of the hat with Liverpool in the following round. Then came a testing fifth-round tie against giantkillers Fulham before they were drawn against Chelsea in the last eight. Ferguson is unconcerned that fate has given United virtually the most difficult route possible to the Twin Towers. ''We've had Liverpool and Middlesbrough and if we get through against Chelsea then we've got Arsenal,'' he said. ''You can't ask for a harder game than that. ''All the top sides will be involved and it will be either Chelsea or ourselves playing Arsenal, which should be a fantastic semi-final. ''We've had hard games, that's true, but it's always difficult getting to Wembley.'' Before Ferguson can start planning the downfall of holders Arsenal, there is the little matter of Wednesday's quarter-final replay against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to deal with. Jaap Stam returns from suspension for United and Ferguson will also be able to call upon Ryan Giggs, who was sidelined yesterday as he recovered from his broken nose and black eye. ''Ryan trained this morning,'' said Ferguson. ''It was just that yesterday's game came too soon and his face is all swollen. ''It would have been unfair to ask him to play, but he will be okay for Wednesday.'' However, Ferguson believes any advantage gained from the availability of Stam and Giggs will be cancelled out by the return of Celestine Babayaro, Frank Leboeuf, Dennis Wise and Michael Duberry for Chelsea. Babayaro, Wise and Leboeuf are back from suspension, while Duberry should be fit following an injury. ''I think those things balance each other out and it will be a totally different game on Wednesday,'' he said. Ferguson can take heart from United's fine record at Stamford Bridge and they have lost just three of their last 18 visits in all competitions. ''We should have won the game at Old Trafford and we all know that, but we're going to a ground where we have a terrific record,'' he said. ''Somebody pointed out that we've only lost three times there in the last 25 years or something, which is a heck of a record.'' Meanwhile, United could have the heart ripped out of their midfield for the Premiership match against Everton on March 21. Paul Scholes is suspended following his sending-off against Chelsea, while skipper Roy Keane is also banned after he picked up his eighth caution against the Blues and a one-match suspension. Nicky Butt is struggling to be fit for the game after he injured his hip in training.

Subject: FERGIE CONTINUES PSYCHOLOGY SOCCER Alex Ferguson has aimed a well-placed dig at Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger in their continuing battle of minds. The two adversaries are once again trying to unnerve each other as the pursuit for honours comes to a climax. Manchester United manager Ferguson began the latest tit-for-tat exchange when he claimed his side's goalless draw with Chelsea in the FA Cup on Sunday made the Gunners favourites for the title. Wenger returned Ferguson's serve by claiming the advantage was with Ferguson's treble-chasing team. Wenger also offered to swap positions with the Scot if he is so confident that the champions have the advantage. Now Ferguson has volleyed Wenger's return back across the net with another jibe at the Frenchman. ''I can understand his offer because we're in the Champions' Cup and they're not,'' he said. Ferguson and Wenger's psychological war is bound to escalate if United beat Chelsea in tomorrow's quarter-final replay and set up a semi-final date with the Gunners at Villa Park on April 11. But before the pair can exchange more barbed comments United must overcome the Blues, who are their nearest Premiership rivals. Ferguson is expected to revert to a more familiar 4-4-2 formation for the Stamford Bridge tie after playing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a lone striker and Phil Neville as a man-marker at Old Trafford on Sunday. Ferguson's tactics did confuse Chelsea initially, but they were not enough to break down the Blues' 10 men in the second half. Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole should return to spearhead the attack, although Ferguson claimed he would decide on his team tomorrow when the team were due to fly down to London. Jaap Stam is available after suspension and Ryan Giggs returns from his nose operation, but Nicky Butt and Ronny Johnsen are still injured. Ferguson said: ''We've got to consider how we can get through to the next round. ''We created enough chances on Sunday to have won it and the only difference being, I would imagine, at home Chelsea will have more of the game than they did at Old Trafford.'' So far this season 270 minutes of football have not been enough to separate these two heavyweights. There must be a winner tomorrow night - even if it requires penalties - and Ferguson is anticipating another tight contest. ''The fact that it was zero-zero on Sunday belies the scoring ability of both teams,'' he said. ''We had a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge and a 1-1 earlier in the season which suggests a closeness between the two sides and thereby you would expect another close game. ''When good teams play each other there is always a certain professionalism and pride that comes into play and that's what we will see tomorrow. ''It should be a smashing game and with so many quality players on the pitch it should be entertaining.'' History is on United's side and they have only lost three of their last 18 visits to Stamford Bridge in all competitions, while the memory of their 5-3 victory there in last season's third round is still fresh.

Subject: I'll never be popular with the fans, says Beckham LONDON, March 9 - David Beckham believes he will never be popular with English soccer fans. Beckham, lambasted by both fans and the media after being sent off for kicking Argentine captain Diego Simeone during the World Cup in France, said he would like to be "really popular. "But I don't think that is going to happen any more. I think more people dislike me than like me for jealousy reasons." The Manchester United midfielder, arguably the English game's most gifted player, is engaged to Spice Girls pop singer Victoria Adams. He reveals in a television documentary "The Football Millionaires" to be screened next week that England team mate Tony Adams was the only person to comfort him after his World Cup sending-off. Beckham said then England coach Glenn Hoddle "didn't speak to me after the game". "But Tony Adams sat down with me outside the dressing room and he was absolutely brilliant. I actually needed that at the time. Adams apart, Beckham said the only support he received was from his family. He said he had "learned to grow up" since the World Cup.

Subject: Gary Neville's Column (Times) Simple procedure: give it to Beckham PEOPLE say to me sometimes that I should be more positive. They tell me I should have the confidence to take the ball on myself and not just pass it to David Beckham the first chance I get. Maybe they will think again after what they saw at Old Trafford against Internazionale on Wednesday night. At the end of the first half, I was in a position to put a cross in myself from the right flank. But I know that if it is a question of Gary Neville putting a cross in or David Beckham putting a cross in, it is no contest. So I rolled it out to him, he crossed and Dwight Yorke did the rest. We have played together for a long time now and I am at the stage where I know exactly what he is going to do. The way I look at it is that I just give him the ball as much as I possibly can. In fact, there are times when I kick myself when I have put in the cross instead of giving David the chance instead. Sometimes, it feels as if I'm passing the buck, not taking the responsibility myself, but it's worth it because I know the quality of pass he is going to produce. I know from experience how difficult it is to defend against the crosses of people like Alessandro Del Piero or the corners of Roberto Carlos. At the end of the day, when I have got one of the best crossers of the ball in the world outside me, it makes sense for me to give it to him. David' s crossing is just unbelievable. Even as a fellow professional, it is difficult for me to comprehend how he whips the ball in with such accuracy and pace. It is a defender's worst nightmare. His technique is incredible. Becks was superb against Inter, but there were a lot of excellent performances from our team. When we let it slip a little bit near the end, Peter Schmeichel rescued us again. I have said all along that I think he is the best goalkeeper there is and his technique of stopping shots is unique. His performance on Wednesday reminded me of the time he kept us in the game with one brilliant save after another in a match against Newcastle United a few years ago when we were both going for the Premiership title. We need him most in the big games and he never lets us down. If they had scored from any of those chances they had at the end, it might have tipped the balance a little bit in their favour. I would think that the bookies will probably make us favourites to win the tie, but we know we are going to have a hell of a game in the second leg in the San Siro. As soon as we came off the pitch on Wednesday, there was obviously happiness that we had got the result we wanted, but almost immediately you get back to the dressing-room, your mind starts to wander to the second leg a week on Wednesday and how difficult it is going to be. They are going to come at us like furies in front of their own fans and we saw little bits of what they could be like when they were crowding round the referee on Wednesday. That aspect of it will be worse in the San Siro, too. They are more than capable of getting those goals back and we will have to be on the top of our form. After the excitement of that game, I'm glad we have got Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup tomorrow because it is such a big match that we won't have to worry about making sure we are all highly motivated for it. When we played Southampton a few days before the first leg of the Inter game, it was almost as if we were waiting for the run of big games we have ahead of us now to start. We didn't take them lightly, but our performance was well below par and we only just scraped a win. We have got five games in a row now - the two against Inter, home to Chelsea, away to Liverpool and Newcastle - which we will not need any motivating for. The fact that they are all together means there will be no chance for the expectation levels to drop and the fans will know how difficult they are all going to be. We know that Ronaldo may be back for the second leg of the tie against Inter, but we would not have changed the way we played on Wednesday even if he had been fit. We can' t worry too much about him because they have got other great players, such as Roberto Baggio and Youri Djorkaeff, to keep you busy. I have played against Ronaldo twice before so I know what a great player he is, but he does not hold any fears for our players. Ronny Johnsen played against him in the World Cup in the Norway team that beat Brazil. It would be a big psychological boost for us if we can go through to the European Cup semi-finals, because it is about time we started beating some of these big clubs. We have learnt our lessons, we have found out about conceding early goals and we have gained experience. It would be nice if we began beating them now.
