Subject: ENGLAND HELD AGAIN From: "Paul Hinson" The 1-1 draw was a great result for Poland and Sweden, and commendable for Bulgaria, and about what you would expect from a Kevin Keegan team. But for jingoistic England fans (SId and Doris Bonkers from Essex), watching the clueless combination featuring United pair Teddy Sheringham and Phil Neville, it was very disappointing, especially after they had taken the lead. Sheringham will know he could have defended better than he did for the Bulgaria equaliser in the 18th minute. First, he conceded a free-kick by trying to dazzle a Bulgarian by shining his Premiership medal in his eyes, and then, when Hristo Stoichkov swung the deadball into the area, the United striker, busy discussing Sports Cars with Jamie Redknapp, failed to mark the goalscorer, Markov, who netted at the far post. It may be the final decisive act of a great career in world football for Sheringham. A national hero in parts of London, he tormented United once or twice during the last season. There were some good half-chances in the second half, two of them falling to Sheringham, but England could not improve on Alan Shearer's fluky and scuffed opener in the 15th minute. Not even when Bulgaria were reduced to six men for the last half-hour. Kevin Keegan's men remain third in the qualifying group with just two games left to play. They must now beat Luxembourg at home on 4 September and the Peoples Republic of Rutland four days later if Sheringham, Neville and the rest of the United Lions are to participate in Euro 2000.

Subject: ONLY IRWIN'S EYES ARE SMILING From: "Paul Hinson" Denis Irwin helped Eire to edge closer to Euro 2000 on Wednesday night. With a solid performance and a few pints of Guinness in the bar afterwards, he played a full part in his nation's 1-0 win over crack outfit Macedonia at Lansdowne Road, which was sealed by Niall Quinn's 18th international goal. The big Sunderland striker, well past his sell-by date, is now just two short of the record set by former Manchester United striker Frank Stapleton. Injured United ace Roy Keane was reduced to enjoying the craic in the Directors Box. Keane is expected to continue contract discussions with demonic and tight-fisted Chief Executive Martin Edwards at the Supremo's multi-million pound palace shortly. While the Irish are now at the top of Group Eight, the Welsh and English have plenty of work to do to qualify from Groups One and Five. Ryan Giggs threatened the Denmark goal with the occasional free-kick for Wales, but ultimately failed to find an excuse to rip his shirt off, or score past his his former team-mate Peter Schmeichel, who has now been airbrushed from United's great history as 'Bosnich is Best' T-Shirts go on sale in the United Megastore. (Priced 9.99, they are terrific value, with all his misdemeanours and Court appearances listed on the back.) Instead, the Danes netted twice in the last six minutes to boost their qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win. On a personal note for Peter, it was his first-ever clean sheet at Anfield, having been foiled by the ruthless opportunism of David Elleray a month ago. Better late than never. Meanwhile, the England woes of Teddy Sheringham and Phil Neville stretched beyond their 1-1 draw with Bulgaria in Sofia. Becks and Scholesie were straight on the mobile from their exotic holiday locations giving it plenty and generally taking the mickey out of their unluckily and tainted team-mates. Only one United man is so far guaranteed some part in Euro 2000 next summer. Jaap Stam will surely be in the Holland squad, who qualify automatically as hosts. "I hope England qualify" the massive Dutch Cap said. "There are some great naughty places in Amsterdam I want to show Gazza, Phizza, Becks, Coley, Teddy and that other one, the Ginger something, minge?"

Subject: Prophesies I can't believe the Board won't agree terms with Keano. He is so crucial. And a great leader. Is there some sort of campaign we can mount? After all, we helped beat Murdoch. The team won the Treble. Anything is possible! I just uncovered a couple of prophesies from the beginning of the season: In the highlights video of last season (1997-98) Fergie said something along the lines of: "It's a crazy game. We get into the Champions League by finishing second, and we might just win it" In the United Magazine, July 1998, this from Zinedine Zidane: "All of us agree that Manchester United were the best team we faced in the Champions League this season. We are sure that their time will come in the European Cup - sooner rather than later. Their team is packed with terrific young players who will simply get better and better. I'm sure that if United had been at full strength against Monaco we would have met them again in the semi-finals. And what a tussle that would have been. In the first game at Old Trafford we had no answer to Ryan Giggs. He showed he is a true world-class player. Then in Turin, we found out how incredibly hard it is to break United down. Peter Schmeichel was magnificent that night and we realise how lucky we were to get to the quarter finals". His feelings were endorsed by Alessandro del Piero: "I admire English football. The players I admire most are Nicky Butt, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville Brothers at United. They're the same age as me and I've never seen so much fire in their eyes as when we played them at Old Trafford" (United magazine, June 1998) Back on the subject of highlights videos, Soccer Learning Systems in California tell me they'll have "The Treble" available "shortly after June 14th" in NTSC format. I'll let the list know as soon as I hear the full details from them. Their website is Steve Edge Vancouver Red

Subject: EC Afterthoughts/Lee Sharpe Now that I'm finally coming down from Cloud 9 I thought I'd share my EC experience. I had a reinsurance law seminar to attend at five o'clock the day of the match, meaning I would be having to leave home immediately after the match. Around the 89th minute I began to gather up my briefcase, just waiting for the final whistle to blow. No sooner had I slung the briefcase on my shoulder when Teddy put in the tying goal. I threw the briefcase on the floor and said to no one in particular, "All right, this is going into overtime!", thinking we had regained the momentum. As soon as I sat back down you-are-my-Solskjaer put in the winner which led to my one and only out-of-body experience. I don't know where I was, but I sure wasn't on this planet. When I did re-enter this world I got down on the floor and started spinning like Curly from The Three Stooges, something I wouldn't recommend while wearing a suit. Watching the boys celebrate on the pitch brought tears to my eyes. I've been a supporter since the day my father took me to the '63 F.A. Cup, but this was, without a doubt, the greatest moment I have ever experienced. I sure hope my better half doesn't read this. Yes, I was late for my seminar and yes, I can't remember anything from this seminar...A good friend and business associate of mine in London (sadly, a West Ham supporter) was telling me how he was watching the match with his wife and when Teddy scored he started screaming, scaring the hell out of his wife in the process. His wife, no fan of football, remarked, "So, does this mean it's going into overtime?" "No," he replied, "United's going to score the winner in the next minute" Well, we all know what happened next. No, my friend is not Uri Geller, though I was quite impressed with his psychic abilities...The President and Executive Vice President of my company were in London at the time of the EC Final and were out having dinner at a very nice restaurant. My President related to me yesterday (upon his return from London) that he slipped the waiter 20 Pounds to give him running updates on the match, so every five minutes this waiter came over and discreetly filled him in on the action. He told me that at the end of the match the restaurant was filled with noise from the kitchen because all the chefs, sous chefs et alia were going wild with excitement. Even the waiters were jumping up and down. I only related these last two stories to drive home the fact that there are a lot of closet United supporters out there, even if they do call themselves West Ham or Spurs or whatever supporters. I even got a message from another business associate and friend (yet another non-United supporter) that told me she saw the match in Japan and was ecstatic with the result. Let's face it: the result thrilled everybody, even those that claim they hate us. OK, so maybe it didn't thrill Franz Beckenbauer...I remember immediately after the CWC Final Sir Matt rushing over to hug Lee Sharpe, after all it was Lee's runs down the wing that helped us win. And, who could forget his goal against Barcelona at OT? I also understand that it was Lee's play that helped Bradford get promoted. I don't think he could command a place at OT anymore, but he could provide good cover on the left and the price is right. I don't think Alex would take him back, but I'll never forget his night at the CWC. I wish him all the best. Best regards, Schuyler Meeks smeeks@ioare.com

Subject: Moments of The Season by CP Cheah Reds, Stuck in the office and in need of a break. So...I'm trying to focus on my favourite thing - United. In my now-not-so-short life, last season really was unbelievable. The feat of doing the Treble is itself an incredible achievement, but really - think about those games that we had to go through. All right to the last minute, when we thought all was lost. It almost seems that the whole season can be summed up in these special moments that, put together, would probably total less than 10 minutes: FA Cup, 4th Round The two injury-time goals by Yorkie and Ole didn't just mean that we went through to the next round, but it also effectively killed the scouse's season. We slayed a demon with that match - Liverpool were truly buried as a footballing force. FA Cup, 5th Round Keano's "winner" disallowed by that twat Elleray.....perfect tonic as it reminded us that it's everyone against Fergie's Red Army. FA Cup 5th Round, Replay First Schmikes saves a penalty in the 90th minute, then Giggsy scores THAT goal. All this after Keano gets sent off. Another watershed moment (at least for us fans) coz we could tell those poncy, smug Arse fans in SF where to stick it. European Cup Semi-Final, 2nd Leg Two goals down in Turin in the first 20 minutes? But we buried those poncy Italians, didn't we? My most vivid memory of that match was Andy's perfect cross for Yorkie to head home. Championship Decider Andy wins the Championship for us at OT. After taking so much stick, some of it deserved, some of it not, he answers his critics the best way. Really, if you think about it, it has to rank second only to THAT goal skill-wise. European Cup Final What a way to win it. The forgotten man of OT, Teddy caps off what must be the best week of professional career. Hell, it was the best week of my life! Ole got his reward too. Think about it - earlier in the season, he could have gone to Spurs and won the League Cup. Instead, he decides to stick it out and ends up with the biggest prize of them all. There is justice on earth after all, eh? Oh well, back to work..... CP Cheah Manchester United Then, now, forever
