Subject: United considering F.A. Cup U-turn LONDON, July 10 - Manchester United might after all play in next season's F.A. Cup, it was reported in English newspapers on Sunday. The Observer claimed that the European champions had already held secret talks with the Football Association (F.A.) to find a way for the club to play in both the world club championship in Brazil as well as defend the F.A. Cup. The paper said the F.A. and United had agreed for the club to withdraw from the League Cup, play both the third and fourth round of the F.A. Cup in December and bring forward some premier league games. United have already relegated the League Cup to a minor priority, fielding largely reserve teams during the last two seasons. The Sunday Mirror said that United manager Alex Ferguson had welcomed moves to get the club back into the world's oldest cup competition. "We are still in July so there is time for adjustments to be made to the fixture list. It's right that we should be represented in the world team championship but not at the expense of the F.A. Cup," the paper quoted Ferguson as saying. F.A. Cup sponsors AXA, who have offered to fly United and some of their fans to Brazil to play their fourth round game there, have welcomed the possible change. "It is great news that United are still open-minded about being involved in both competitions," spokesman Phil Hickley said. United were given the option to withdraw by the F.A. who feared that a failure to take part in the world club championship would hit England's chances of being awarded the 2006 World Cup. But the decision was attacked on all fronts, with fans, United players, other managers and politicians speaking against it. Many said it would for ever undermine the status of the F.A. Cup.
Subject: UNITED WILL PLAY in the FA Cup Denis Campbell Sunday July 11, 1999 Manchester United will play in next season's FA Cup. The decision follows a dramatic change of heart by the club and the Football Association, The Observer can reveal. They are set to unveil a new plan to let the Treble-winners compete in the Cup and still play in the World Club Championship in Brazil next January. Old Trafford and the FA have been forced into an embarrassing climbdown after their unprecedented agreement allowing the Cup-winners not to defend their title, sparking a huge controversy. 'They are backpedalling because of all the criticism and are looking at new proposals to sort this out,' said a well-placed source. They are working on fresh ideas that would enable United to re-enter the Cup but also relieve the chronic fixture congestion awaiting them after Christmas, which prompted their pull-out two weeks ago.' United and the FA held secret talks on Friday to seek a way out of the impasse. Several alternatives are being discussed. The one likeliest to be chosen would involve United opting out of the Worthington (League) Cup instead of the FA Cup. They would bring forward some of their Premiership games planned for early 2000 to the dates freed up by that move, and also play the fourth round of the FA Cup in December rather than in January. The third round has already been moved forward by a month from its traditional date on the first Saturday of the new year. This plan would make United's post-Christmas fixture workload manageable. They could play in Brazil, the latter stages of the European Champions League and the Premiership. It would also give players breathing spaces in a still packed schedule. The FA sees United's participation in the World Club Championship as crucial to its chances of hosting the 2006 World Cup. It would need the approval of the Football League, which runs the Worthington Cup, the broadcasters who show it and the Premier League clubs affected. Sky and ITV, who between them screen both the Cup competitions and the Premier League, appear ready to accept the compromise. It would devalue the Worthington Cup but preserve the appeal of the FA Cup - the world's oldest and most famous cup competition. The Premier League is prepared to show 'flexibility and imagination' in rejigging fixtures to help United. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claimed United were 'killing' the Cup. Tony Blair asked United to find a way of playing in both Brazil and the FA Cup. Senior figures in the FA have voiced concern that the FA leadership has inadvertently ruined its biggest asset. They fear United's opt-out, intended as a one-off exemption, could set a dangerous precedent for other clubs.
Subject: Fergie slams Beckham talk Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has hit back at claims he demanded David Beckham makes an early return to Old Trafford from his honeymoon. Reports claimed that Beckham was being told to return to the club in order to join his team-mates on the pre-season tour of China and Australia. But according to Ferguson, who is far from pleased about the reports, Beckham had always been due back from his break on Monday and there is no truth in claims he has been recalled because of a threat of legal action from the company organising United's pre-season trip to Australia. Beckham, who married Posh Spice at the weekend, was given permission to delay his return to the club due to a ten-day honeymoon in the Indian Ocean. The squad flies out on Monday and Beckham will spend the next fortnight building up his fitness ready for the start of the new season. Unless he reaches peak fitness quickly, he will stay at home as planned while United play games in Australia, Hong Kong and mainland China. There is an outside chance he could fly out for the Far East section of the tour but this is unlikely. According to the United boss nothing has changed - Beckham's return date was fixed weeks ago and he will now go through the rigours of pre-season training, catching up on most of his colleagues who have been training all this week.
Subject: BECKHAM WILL JOIN TOUR IN CHINA By Ian Rodgers, PA Sport David Beckham will join up with his Manchester United team-mates in Shanghai on their forthcoming tour of Australia and the Far East. The England international will miss the Australian leg of the tour as he undergoes a week of intensive pre-season training after the summer break. "David is not going to Australia. He is coming back for training next week at The Cliff," Old Trafford spokesman Ken Ramsden said. "And subject to him coming through a full week of pre-season training successfully, then he will join up with the team in the second part of the tour in Shanghai. "We don't expect any problems but if he is injured, he won't come." The organisers of the pre-season tour to Australia, Rivkin Entertainment, had threatened to withdraw half of United's appearance money if Beckham was not in the squad but neither he nor manager Sir Alex Ferguson will fly out with the squad on Monday. The United boss is staying at home before his investiture at Buckingham Palace as Beckham endures the week-long intensity of pre-season training. Ferguson confirmed that Beckham will not be joining Manchester United's trip Down Under - even if it costs the club £1million. But Ferguson dismissed claims that there had been a bust-up with England international Beckham. "David was told at the end of the season that he had to be back on July 12," Ferguson said. "I think some attempt had been made by one of his or his wife's agents to get an extension to his time off but we couldn't do that because he needs to get fit for the new season. "I spoke to David last week and he understood. There is not a bust-up on my part. We considered all the players and when they should come back. "David played his last game on June 5 and July 12 was the latest we could possibly have him back. He has had 37 days off now, that is almost six weeks, and he needs to get fit. "He was never going to Australia at the start and there are no plans for him to go. Whether he goes on the second leg of the tour to China and Hong Kong depends on his fitness." Beckham is not the only absentee from the United squad for the tour. Paul Scholes' wife is due to give birth to their first child very soon and he has been excused to be by her side. And Ronny Johnsen is still under a rehab program after a minor operation earlier in the summer and Gary Neville will continue to train in readiness for the new season. The news will come as a disappointment to Rivkin who were "80-90% sure" that both men would be on the tour. But the club do not expect any problems over the non-appearances. "We don't foresee any issues arising there," Ramsden added. Meanwhile the striker who became an unexpected hero for United is ready for the new season even though it could mean a return to the shadows at Old Trafford. Teddy Sheringham's crucial goals carried United to the Treble but with a year left on his contract, Sheringham knows he could step back to the bench and has no plans of moving on. He said: "I'm happy at the moment but I suppose if something came up then you would look at it, but that is the way it always is in football. I'm very happy here and I'm enjoying myself, especially after what has happened in the last couple of months." "I don't think the memory of those games will ever wear off. Whenever you walk around the streets, all anybody wants to talk about is the finals and the European Cup in particular." © PA Sporting Life
