Subject: Sir Alex Ferguson has said he wants to stay on at Old Trafford FERGIE WANTS TO STAY - IF ASKED Sir Alex Ferguson has said he wants to stay on at Old Trafford in some capacity when he hangs up his tracksuit and stopwatch - but don't think he's taking a job offer for granted. He has already said that he will retire form the dug-out in three years time, when he reaches his 60th birthday, but many will find it hard to imagine Old Trafford without the most successful manager of the past decade. The man himself is no exception. "I have been a manager for 25 years, 13 of them here at Old Trafford. I think in three years time it will definitely be time to hand the cudgels over to someone else. It will be time for me to take a new direction," he said. "Hopefully, that will be here at Manchester United in some capacity, but there are no guarantees. No one has spoken to me about it. If it's not here, then it will be somewhere else. That's the way life goes." Sir Alex was speaking ahead of his testimonial match on Monday night, when United take on a World XI in front of the Sky Cameras. The star-studded evening will see the Old Trafford return of icons like Peter Schmeichel and Eric Cantona, along with Serie A stars such as Gabriel Batistuta, Zinedine Zidane, and George Weah. Some may find it odd that a manager should have a testimonial, but Fergie has got no worries on that score. "Yes, I admit it's unusual for a manger to have one," he said. "But I think this will be an appropriate occasion. That's not to say I deserve one, but I don't think it's undeserved." There will be precious few who would not concur with those sentiments in Monday's sell-out crowd.

Subject: MEN : Giggs back for Fergie party Giggs back for Fergie party RYAN Giggs will make his Manchester United comeback in Sir Alex Ferguson's testimonial match on Monday night. http://www.manchesteronline.co.uk/editorials/sport/000001.html The Reds' boss will use his tribute game against a Rest of the World XI to ease the Welsh winger back towards full fitness, with a view to a Premiership return against Watford at Old Trafford next Saturday - just four weeks after he was sidelined. Giggs has been out with another hamstring injury suffered against Wimbledon three weeks ago. Stories that the 25-year-old would make a shock comeback today for Wales against Switzerland in their final Euro 2000 at Wrexham were rubbished by Fergie and his winger was only at the Welsh camp for a photo-shoot. However, Giggs, who has missed four matches with his problem, will appear on Monday. ``I am going to give Ryan half a match on Monday night and then hope he'll be fit for Watford,'' says Fergie. ``He's been training full out and doing really well. He had a 40-minute run out in a practise match on Thursday and came through it without any problems. ``It is important with a hamstring injury that you do all your remedial work properly and you aren't rushed back, otherwise you could be out longer. ``Ryan has done all the right work and now he's at the stage where a half on Monday night is the right thing for him.'' Meanwhile, another show-stopping Frenchman has signed up to play for Sir Alex in the United manager's tribute game. Returning legend Eric Cantona will be joined by French 'keeper Pascal Olmeta, who almost stole the show at the Munich benefit in August, 1998. Cantona's on-field farewell in the memorial match was nearly up-staged by the jester from Ajaccio. The extrovert Olmeta danced and sang with the Old Trafford crowd and United fans urged Fergie to sign him up! It was a plea met with great encouragement by the 'keeper. Now Pascal is back for Fergie and this time he threatens to grab the limelight from three Red legends - Fergie, Cantona and Peter Schmeichel. The Great Dane returns to Old Trafford for his personal farewell to honour his treble-winning boss and will play in goal for the Rest of the World XI . . but you can bet Olmeta will want his share of the limelight between the sticks at some stage! The disappointment that Fiorentina striker Gabriel Batistuta will miss the jamboree as he's been called up by Argentina has been offset by the capture of Roma's Brazilian skipper Kafu for the glittering showpiece. Inter Milan's Taribo West and West Ham's Rio Ferdinand and Paulo Di Canio have been added to the visiting squad who'll take on United. Paul Scholes is expected to play for England at Sunderland tomorrow in the friendly against Belgium and won't play against the Rest of the World 24 hours later, but Fergie's fit senior players will turn out for the testimonial in a strong Reds XI.

Subject: Luke Chadwick v Jimmy Nielsen - Luke won! *Chadwick had a goal ruled out for offside Not good advertising for a prospective goalkeeper? 4-1!!!!! I must say that the match was so one sided that Jimmy did not have a chance in goal. He did ok most of the golas were unreachable and close in. One was a nutmeg but it was 50/50 and deflected in off his legs, still here is the 365 report: ENGLAND UNDER-21s 4 DENMARK UNDER-21s 1 Leeds' young guns blazed their way to England glory as Under-21 manager Howard Wilkinson provided a glimpse of the future at full international level. During his eight-year reign at Elland Road, Wilkinson set the wheels in motion to a potential dynasty which is just beginning to bear fruit under David O'Leary. Wilkinson created a youth policy which has helped fire O'Leary's side to the top of the Premier League this season for the first time since 'Wilko' took the club to the old First Division title in 1992. Now, having recently taken charge of the Under-21s from Peter Taylor, Wilkinson is able to tap into that rich seam of talent at the Yorkshire club. Debuts were handed to goalkeeper Paul Robinson and striker Alan Smith, who lined up alongside team-mates Danny Mills, Lee Bowyer and Michael Bridges - and none disappointed against Denmark. Wilkinson, along with both O'Leary and assistant Eddie Gray who were present at Bradford's Valley Parade ground, watched as first-half goals were perfectly crafted and finished in Leeds. O'Leary, who admitted just before kick-off of his pride at the five United players in the line-up, probably afforded himself a wry smile as Bridges teed-up Smith and Bowyer in the opening half. But the game also threw up another star-in-the-making, and yet another to roll off the Manchester United production line, in Luke Chadwick. The winger tormented the Danes down the right-hand side for most of the evening and is certain to play a major role in Wilkinson's assault on the European Under-21 title. With Frank Lampard with the full squad - although certain to return for next month's two-legged last 16 championship clash - it proved to be a special night for Liverpool's Jamie Carragher. Carragher, handed the skipper's armband in Lampard's absence, equalled the 22-cap record for the Under-21s set by former Manchester City and West Brom star Gary Owen between 1977 and 1983. The 21-year-old marshalled his side with calm and composure as the Leeds youngsters set about maintaining England's unbeaten record against the visitors. England made it nine wins and two draws from their 11 meetings, with the game virtually all over as a contest by the half-time break. The opening 45 minutes at least made amends for last month's 3-1 defeat in Poland, the only blemish on England's almost-perfect qualifying record in the championships. The second lacked the panache of the first, although the Danes did try to make the last 17 minutes intriguing when they pulled back a goal out of nothing from Christian Magleby. Fortunately, England had their two first-half strikes to fall back on as Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and Bridges set up Smith for the 20th-minute opener. Smith, with only one Premiership goal to his credit this season, rounded goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen before sliding home a simple finish. After Magleby had seen Robinson brilliantly tip a rasping drive onto the post, Leeds' £5m club record signing in Bridges then teed up Bowyer in the 31st minute. The tenacious midfielder, who was booked and limped off with a groin strain early in the second-half, coolly beat Nielsen with a close-range nutmeg. After Smith, sub David Thompson and Chadwick had all had goals ruled out for offside, England finally added a game-clinching third seven minutes from time. Smith's measured cross from the left was knocked home by Wimbledon striker Carl Cort. And floundering Denmark were polished off by a fourth goal in the fourth minute of injury-time, Thompson heading home after Cort had knocked back Smith's cross - again from the left.
