Barry Daily Comment:
   UNITED ORIENTATED Ingerland stuff
Now I am just wondering?
Please, admit it if you did, did ANYONE else who watched ingerland yesterday
start singing Erics Song when they played the French National Anthem before
the game??? I certainly did and it made me feel good!

Gave me a weird feeling of [Eric] proudness and somehow I enjoyed their
performance in the 2nd half ripping our boys apart. Zidane, Djorkaeff,
others played like a dream team.

Eric did not play for France much but somehow he is still related.
On a RED note 1st half Becks was just marvellous, just needs nore support
 like he has at OT.

"What A Friend We Have In Jesus"
What a friend we have in Jesus............he`s a saviour from afar
What a friend we have in Jesus.........and his name is Cantona....
Ooh Aah Cantona,Ooh Aah Cantona
Ooh Aah, Ooh Aah, Ooh Aah Cantona....Ooh Aah Cantona.......

"Eric The King"
We`ll drink and drink and drink
To Eric the King the King the King
He`s the leader of our football team
He`s the greatest French Footballer that the world has ever seen....

Subject: United takeover verdict on schedule «« The Monopolies and Mergers Commission is on schedule with its report into the proposed take over of Manchester United by BSkyB Television and we should all know the outcome in the next two months. The MMC is shortly due to make its recommendations to the Department of Trade and Industry after accumulating information for both companies - United and Sky - and listening to objections from United fans and shareholders opposed to the move. Those supporting the £623 million buy-out feel things have gone well and are confident the deal will get the Department of Trade and Industry's blessing. They claim most of the opposition has come from a section of militant supporters, many of whom hold only a single share or who have no shares at all. The feeling is the majority of shareholders with an average investment are in favour of ownership of the club changing hands.

Subject: FULHAM WARY OF UNITED ONSLAUGHT By Paul Walker, PA Sport Kit Symons admits there was "nervous laughter" in the Fulham camp when news of Manchester United's eight-goal romp at Nottingham Forest came through. Symons and his team-mates were sitting in the dressing room at Wycombe after last weekend's 1-1 draw - in which the Welsh defender scored the equaliser - when the full magnitude of what they had to face in their next match began to sink in. "You could say that there were a few nervous laughs around the place when we heard Manchester United had just hit eight," he recalled. Symons, and his Wales team-mate Chris Coleman, have arguably the most unenviable task anybody can wish for in the FA Cup fifth round. Symons, who knows all about being on the wrong end of stuffings by United from his time with Manchester City, will be right in the firing line on Sunday when Kevin Keegan's Fulham become the next target for the United shooting gallery. Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and probably Ole Gunner Solskjaer, fresh from the record breaking scoring antics that stunned the nation and cut Forest to shreds, no doubt can't wait to get stuck into a Second Division defence. Symons admits to just a touch of apprehension. He said: "When we saw the result from Forest we had a bit of a chuckle. Let's just hope they don't put eight past us too. "But there's no point in worrying about it. They've got nothing that we don't know about because we all see them week in week out on TV." Symons knows United's front men are on fire and admitted: "It's fair to say we expect more than a few problems with Yorke and Cole. They are both such good players individually but they seem to have such a special understanding as a pair now as well. "It's great watching them but it might not be great to have them coming at you." He accepts United and their front men are a class apart but reckons that Fulham's own form against higher division clubs this season shows they are capable of an upset. He said: "There's no question they are a great side with some fantastic players. But we have to go out and do our best and hope they have an off day. "We did it at Villa and won there in the last round so it's not impossible - even if Old Trafford might be a touch more difficult. "There's always a chance, and the old cliche is that the Cup is a great leveller ... I just hope we can manage a bit of levelling on Sunday. "But we do tend to play better against the top sides. We didn't do badly at Liverpool for a long spell in the Worthington Cup, and we were ahead at one stage. "We just hope to go there and put on a good performance and do ourselves justice." For Symons, it's a return to Manchester after leaving City for Craven Cottage last summer. He said: "The game is a bit more special for me because it is against United at Old Trafford and I'm a Manchester City old boy. "I played in three derbies in the 95-96 season when I was at Maine Road, and we lost all three by the odd goal. We even went out of the FA Cup in the fifth round there to a very dodgy penalty when Uwe Rosler had put City ahead. "The two league games were very much the same, just one goal in it on both occasions. "A Paul Scholes goal beat us 1-0 at Old Trafford, and we lost 3-2 at Maine Road after getting back from two down at one stage, so I feel I'm owed a good result against United. "I've been there a couple of times with Portsmouth as well in the League Cup and not got a result. But it's a great place to play and we will really be up for it."

Subject: Giggs blows Fergie game-plan «« Ryan Giggs has blown the gaffe on Alex Ferguson's plans to keep him under wraps until United face Inter Milan in the first-leg of the Champions' League quarter-final. Ferguson had maintained throughout that the Welshman's hamstring injury, sustained during last week's 1-0 defeat of Derby, would prevent him from playing against the Italian giants on March 3. The United boss had stressed that the Reds were preparing to play what could well prove to be 'the game of the season' without their key winger, knowing that the Italians would hand on to his every word. It now seems apparent that Ferguson was bluffing but Giggs had not been let in on the secret. Giggs let the cat out of the bag while visiting the Welsh squad in training this week and further revealed that the injury was not as serious as first thought and he could even be in contention for next week's potentially explosive home clash with Arsenal. He said: "It's not as bad as it was last year when I was out for seven weeks. "Hopefully, this time we're only talking around three weeks and I will be back for the Inter Milan game." It's rumoured that Ferguson is none too pleased that his winning hand has been revealed.

Subject: Ingerlund This is what happens when you play for Ingerlund. I'd prefer it if none of our players had to commit to these matches. And, just when you think Adams couldn't look any worse... :)) no sympathy here! Arsenal pay high price after England-France LONDON, Feb 11 (Reuters) - English champions Arsenal, who had seven players in Wednesday's international between England and France, have paid a heavy price for their involvement in the match. Skipper Tony Adams suffered a broken nose, recalled veteran defender Lee Dixon was taken to hospital with concussion and Martin Keown has been sidelined for at least three weeks with a hamstring injury. The injuries come at a hard time for Arsenal who continue the defence of the F.A. Cup with a fifth round against Sheffield United at Highbury on Saturday and play Manchester United at Old Trafford in a crucial premier league match next Wednesday. Arsenal have Frenchman Emmanuel Petit, who came through Wednesday's match unscathed, suspended for both games. Dennis Bergkamp is banned against Manchester United. Bill McArthur "There's only ONE United, Manchester United."

Subject: Ryan Giggs PIN Birthplace: Cardiff, 29/11/1973 Height: 180cm - 5ft 11in Weight: 61kg - 9st 8lb Full International: Wales (19 caps, 4 goals) Position: Forward Squad Number: 11 Debut: 26.02.1991 Appearances (1991-1999): 341 - 30 as sub Goals: 72 Ryan Giggs moved to England, from Wales, at the age of seven. He joined Dean's Youth FC where he learned how to play football. His coach at Dean's Youth was Denis Schofield, who referred him to Manchester City, where he played for their school of excellence until he was fourteen years old. On his fourteenth birthday Alex Ferguson went to Ryan Giggs' home in Swinton, Manchester, to ask him to sign schoolboy forms. Ken Barnes, City's chief scout, had already confirmed they would not be signing him. Their loss was Manchester United's gain, and the rest as they say is history! At 16, Ryan signed amateur forms (YTS) and turned professional in November 1990, just after his 17th birthday. His League debut for Manchester United came on 2 March 1991, against Everton at Old Trafford, as a substitute for Denis Irwin. His first League start was in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford at the end of the same season, when he scored the only goal of the match. Following an injury to Lee Sharpe at the start of the 1991-2 season, Giggs was able to gain a regular first team place making the left-wing position his own. Whilst at Manchester United, Giggs has won every domestic trophy, as follows: League Cup 1992, League Championships, 1993, 1994, 1996 and 1997, two F.A. Cup winners' medals in 1994 and 1996 and a runners-up medal in 1995. In addition to this Giggs has represented Wales at full international level, being the youngest ever player to play for Wales at the age of 17 years and 321 days, when he came on as a substitute against West Germany. He has also recently captained Wales. As a schoolboy Ryan captained the England Schoolboys team, but this was only because he attended school in England and not because he is English! Ryan is one of the most talented players currently in the game, a fast winger with an immense amount of skill and a free kick expert. He has scored many memorable as well as important goals for Manchester United. Did You Know? His childhood heroes were Mark Hughes and Ian Rush. His father, Danny Wilson was a Rugby League player for Cardiff and Swinton. Giggs still takes an interest in Rugby League and goes to watch Wigan RL, as often as possible.

Subject: SHERINGHAM FIGHTS FOR HIS PLACE Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has vowed to fight for his place in a side which can't stop scoring goals. Sheringham, who was Alan Shearer's England partner not so long ago, now finds himself fourth choice striker at Old Trafford. He said: ''I don't think I have reached the stage of losing my edge yet. I certainly haven't given up - I have belief in myself. ''I have been a professional for 15 years and I don't think I would have got this far if I hadn't been able to handle the setbacks,'' Sheringham told The Mirror. ''The manager has four strikers which makes it difficult for me. And to be honest I am not coping well with not playing regularly in the first team. ''When a footballer doesn't get his game he is unhappy and I am no different.'' Sheringham has made only three appearances in the FA Carling Premiership this season, mainly due to the fact he has been struggling to overcome knee problems. Manager Alex Ferguson said: ''Teddy is now doing a lot of physical work. He's putting in a lot of effort and once he's completed that, he will be back with the rest of the first team in full training.''

Subject: ENGLAND INURIES BOOST UNITED Arsenal are facing an injury crisis ahead of next week's massive Premiership clash with Manchester United after suffering a double blow in England's friendly International with France at Wembley. The Gunners are already without the suspended Emmanuel Petit and Dennis Bergkamp for a match which will go a long way to determining the destination of the League Championship. And now injuries to central defender Martin Keown and full-back Lee Dixon have added to their woe for the match with Alex Ferguson's side. Keown is a definite non-starter and will be out for three weeks with a hamstring problem while Dixon will be out for a week after suffering concussion in a clash of heads with French substitute Christophe Dugarry. The full-back, who had earned a surprise recall to the international scene, returned to Wembley after going to hospital for a precautionary check-up, but it is touch and go whether he will be ready for Wednesday's trip to Old Trafford. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who was at Wembley to see his rising star Nicolas Anelka destroy England with a two goal blast, groaned: ''We could certainly have done without these problems, especially with players already out through suspension. ''It is always tough when you play Manchester United. We will definitely be without Keown, who is out for three weeks, while Dixon will be touch-and-go as he will be out for a week.''

Subject: Peter Schmeichel showed why he is one of the best in the world. Sand hits winner as Denmark beat Croatia 1-0 SPLIT, Croatia, Feb 10 - A lone 45th-minute goal by Ebbe Sand sealed victory for Denmark in a friendly soccer international against Croatia on Wednesday that was interrupted for 12 minutes due to a power outage. Cold and heavy rain made the pitch difficult for the players to control the ball, and in the 83th minute the bad weather caused the lights at the Poljud stadion to go out -- giving the players an unexpected break. Sand scored at the end of the first half when he stole the ball from Croatian defenders, then ran 30 metres while shaking off two defenders before calmly lobbing the ball over keeper Marijan Mrmic from close range. Croatia had earlier gone close to scoring three times within the space of a minute, but Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel showed why he is one of the best in the world. Croatia striker and World Cup hero Davor Suker went closest in the 13th minute when he intercepted a pass from Schmeichel, but was too slow in firing the shot, allowing his old rival to run back and tip the ball out from the empty net. Schmeichel then saved a header by Zvonimir Soldo and another Suker attempt, this one from a free kick. He was beaten in the 41st minute, but Mario Stanic's left-footed effort went centimeters wide. Croatian coach Miroslav Blazevic made five changes to his side in the second half, testing several players ahead of next month's Euro 2000 qualifier against Yugoslavia.

          If ever they are playing in your town
          You must get to that football ground
          Take a lesson come to see
          Football taught by Matt Busby
          Manchester, Manchester United
          A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
          They deserve to be knighted
