 D-Day and all that  from: andy walsh 

This is just a short note, but none the less heartfelt for its brevity, to
congratulate everyone of you who may have written a letter, sent an email
or simply had a discussion with other fans, about the Sky bid.

Stephen Byers gave an interview to the Sunday Telegraph in which it is
stated that he was overwhelmed by the number of letters and faxes he
received. It is still unclear how things will pan out over the next few
months but one thing is for sure United fans the world over united to stop
the most powerful business man on the planet and that should make you all
feel very, very proud, I just wish I could personally shake you all by the

Proud and priviliged to be Red

Subject: UNITED BOSS ISN'T SCARED OF A FIXTURE PILE-UP By Ian Cruise MANCHESTER UNITED manager Alex Ferguson last night sent a defiant message to the harbingers of doom who are predicting that his side will run out of steam in their quest for a sensational treble. After yesterday's 0-0 FA Cup semi-final draw with Arsenal, much of the talk surrounded the fixture pile-up that is threatening to derail the Red Express, but Ferguson was having none of it. The Old Trafford chief has moaned long and loud in the past about his side being asked to play too many matches in too short a space of time but, even though his players will now have to face their third semi-final clash in seven days when they meet the Gunners once more on Wednesday night, he is convinced his troops have got what it takes not only to win through to face Newcastle in the FA Cup Final, but also to go to Italy in ten days' time and end the European Cup hopes of arch nemesis Juventus. ''By the time we go to Turin, we'll be champing at the bit - we'll be eating people!" he insisted. ''Never underestimate the British endurance. Juve will have to run a million miles to beat us.'' That is just the sort of positive attitude Ferguson will instil in his side as they continue to chase glory on three fronts. Even before Sunday's draw with Arsenal (pictured), the players felt they could achieve success in the FA Cup, as well as the Premiership and Champions League, and nothing that happened yesterday will have changed their minds. Indeed, were it not for an overeager linesman's flag, United would have already booked their place at Wembley in May. Roy Keane thought he had broken the deadlock only for his effort to be ruled out for an earlier offside against Dwight Yorke. However, not even that controversial decision upset Ferguson, a man not normally slow to criticise officials if he feels his team has been wronged. After being shown a TV replay of the incident, he said: "Oh well, that's it, if it's offside then that's it, it's not a goal and we've just got to get on with it and come back here again.'' The Premiership's big two will fight for the right to meet Newcastle in the final next month after a double strike from Alan Shearer saw off Tottenham at Old Trafford. The England captain struck twice in extra time, first from the penalty spot and then with a blistering angled drive from the edge of the area. It means the Geordies will be in the FA Cup Final for the second year running - and end any disputes about their participation in next season's UEFA Cup. Manager Ruud Gullit, back at Wembley two years after lifting the cup as Chelsea boss, admitted: "It's a strange game, a difficult game, but I think they played very well. Shearer is Shearer, he can score goals whenever he wants.''

Subject: Ferguson furious as dubious offside decision subjects his team to Villa Park replay Extended semi riles United - Times BY OLIVER HOLT MANCHESTER UNITED 0 ARSENAL 0 after extra time THERE was finesse and there was finery at Villa Park yesterday afternoon, but both were relegated to subservience. Baser virtues triumphed in this FA Cup semi-final between the nation's two best sides and acquired a nobility of their own in the process. There was an occasional shimmy from Dennis Bergkamp, the odd piece of vision from the Dutchman that took the breath away and one run in the dying seconds of extra time that eliminated Roy Keane and Ronny Johnsen in a couple of mesmeric shuffles and seemed as if it might be about to settle the tie. There were some clever passes from Keane, too, and a brace of dipping, curling free kicks from David Beckham and Ryan Giggs that commanded awe because of their precision and power. They were like flowers planted on barren ground. This was a game of destructive beauty, a game where all creativity was lost. That extra-time run by Bergkamp was stifled by a lunging tackle from Gary Neville, Giggs's free kick was clutched by David Seaman and a late break by Fredrik Ljungberg foundered on the excellence of Peter Schmeichel. The one time that the ball did bulge the net, dispatched there by a fierce half-volley from Keane in the 39th minute, it was ruled out by a dubious offside decision that penalised Dwight Yorke, even though he was clearly not seeking to interfere with play. Alex Ferguson, the United manager, described the decision - which provoked fury among the United players - as "absolutely ridiculous". Keane explained why it angered his side so much. "We knew how tight it was going to be," he said. "We knew there was only ever going to be one goal in it. That's why we were so disappointed." More than anything, this was a game that relied on the apparently ageless excellence of the Arsenal defence for its inspiration. They were utterly unbreachable yesterday, neutralising Yorke and Andy Cole and reducing Beckham and Giggs to peripheral figures. At the heart of that defence, a back four that has conceded only 13 goals in the FA Carling Premiership this season, Tony Adams and Martin Keown played as well as they have done all year. Keown, in particular, was unyielding in the challenge, impossible to beat. On the rare occasion that United had half an opening, when they might have won one challenge in the opposing penalty area, Arsenal invariably won the second. If Adams was beaten, Keown was there to mop up, and vice versa. More often, they broke up play with a thudding tackle or a neat intervention. To make United's attacking task even harder, Patrick Vieira and Nelson Vivas worked away like demons in front of the defence, stopping their opponents from running directly at Adams and Keown. They were a formidable barrier. Even when Vivas was sent off five minutes into the first period of extra time, earning his second yellow card for elbowing Nicky Butt in the face, Arsenal breathed hard, regrouped and returned to the task. Only two minutes from the end, when Adams collided with Nigel Winterburn, did United have a clear opportunity, and Yorke dragged his shot wide from ten yards. That, in fact, was the game in microcosm. With Arsenal playing conservatively, looking to hit United on the break, the onus was on Ferguson's side to break them down. To do that, their forwards needed to be on top form, their finishing at its most clinical, but Cole and Yorke fell short of the performances that have made them such a feared partnership. Indeed, it was Arsenal who forced the few half-chances there were before the interval. Schmeichel had to arch his back to tip over a fierce header from Adams in the 25th minute and, ten minutes later, the Danish goalkeeper flung himself to his right to push out Bergkamp's shot after it had flown at him through a crowd of players. On the stroke of half-time, Yorke shot weakly and straight at Seaman after an exchange of passes with Cole. Then, after the break, Cole failed to convert an enticing cross from Gary Neville and, soon afterwards, struck a tame shot into the arms of Seaman after Giggs had released him in the centre. Nicolas Anelka, who had a subdued game, wasted a chance to break the stalemate three minutes from the end of normal time when he wriggled past Jaap Stam for the first time, but he sliced his shot high and wide. Both sides tired in the second period of extra time and the chances came in a flash flood as the game ebbed away. None of them were taken, leaving Ferguson, in particular, to rue his side's profligacy. "There was not much between the two sides," he said. "I think it was a predictable result, to be honest with you. We had enough chances to kill them off. We created more than them but we did not take them and that is why we have to go to a replay." It will take a mistake or a moment of brilliance to separate these sides on Wednesday. Yesterday, neither was forthcoming. MANCHESTER UNITED (4-4-2): P Schmeichel - G Neville, R Johnsen, J Stam, D Irwin (sub: P Neville, 85min) - D Beckham, R Keane, N Butt, R Giggs (sub: O G Solskjaer, 99) - D Yorke, A Cole (sub: P Scholes, 113). ARSENAL (4-3-3): D Seaman - L Dixon, M Keown, A Adams, N Winterburn - R Parlour, P Vieira, N Vivas - N Anelka (sub: Kanu, 100), D Bergkamp, M Overmars (sub: F Ljungberg, 90). Referee: D Elleray. ------------------------------------ Matt Dickinson says the boys of the old brigade who constitute Arsenal's defence continue to amaze by their resilience Adams presents indestructable barricade If Tony Adams is the Doctor of Defence, as his manager claims, then yesterday he allowed the rest of us a glance at his thesis. The Arsenal captain has produced some immense performances for club and country over more than a decade, but few can have equalled this colossal display. Some of his tackles would have stopped the traffic. He must have been that good to have narrowly pipped Martin Keown to this observer's man-of-the-match award. With some justification, Keown has complained recently that he has not been recognised as a defender of international calibre. So here goes. Martin, you are a great defender but Tony, I am afraid, is still that little bit better. In tandem, and with Nigel Winterburn, Lee Dixon and David Seaman in their own resolute mood, the safest bet yesterday was that not even the country's most prolific attack would be capable of breaching England's most steadfast defence. The reduction to ten men, when Nelson Vivas was rightly dismissed four minutes into extra time, only made Arsenal's stubbornness more certain. The resilience is in the blood. Adams threw himself into tackles with an enthusiasm that belied his 32 years and dodgy ankles, as well as embarking on the odd rampage upfield. At one point in the first half, he charged forward with such unlikely speed that he appeared to have got on the end of his own clearances and he, more than anyone, did not deserve to lose this game. There have been times this season when the pain in his legs has prompted talk of retirement and he will prove irreplaceable when the day eventually comes. They will clear the marble halls of Highbury for another bronze bust. With Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane matching each other in magnificence in midfield and both attacks sporadic in their effectiveness, this was the sixth meeting in succession in which United have found themselves unable to overcome their sternest rivals. It is a run of four defeats and two draws that stretches back to February 1997 and, in the minds of the United players, the little doubts must have started to become self-fulfilling. Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole must feel as though they are banging their heads, as well as their shots, against a brick wall. Arsenal will certainly have left Villa Park in the jauntier mood. Without the burden of a European campaign to distract them, they will feel that the return of Emmanuel Petit from his three-match suspension for the replay on Wednesday will give them a slight edge. They appeared less willing than United to gamble on throwing bodies forward yesterday, but the Frenchman's versatility will allow them to do so in greater numbers. Perhaps by Wednesday, Nicolas Anelka will have been taught the rules of offside. And, of course, there will still be that back four to protect David Seaman, provided that they have all recovered from the aches and pains that prove more reluctant to depart by the year. Winterburn, 35, was bleeding from his chest early on after a strong challenge from Beckham and finished extra time clutching his toes as cramp set in. Meanwhile, Dixon, 35, could barely muster the energy to clear the ball past the halfway line. It was left to Keown and Adams to carry them through, a task they performed with remarkable calm as well as courage. "They are tough, they are intelligent and they will recover for Wednesday," Arsène Wenger, the Arsenal manager, said. "They will make it. They have made if before. We had our usual resilience and organisation and we needed the brilliance at the back. We are still in the FA Cup because of our defence." He could not have put it better.

Subject: Guardian: Luckless united robbed by rogue flag By David Lacey at Villa Park Sunday April 11, 1999 The long, scoreless Sunday lunchtime which failed to separate Arsenal and Manchester United yesterday has left Highbury licking its lips while Old Trafford must be starting to wonder if it has not got too much on its plate. A replayed FA Cupx semi-final, especially against Arsenal, was the last thing Alex Ferguson wanted at this stage. A combination of poor finishing aberrant offside flag conspired to deny United the place at Wembley that their sharper and more imaginative attacking play demanded. Even after the dismissal of Nelson Vivas five minutes into extra-time, Ferguson's team still could not find the accuracy and composure near goal to outwit the Premiership's tightest defence. It was a familiar situation for Arsenal, for whom it was the 10th red card of the season and the 22nd of Arsene Wenger's two-and-a-half years as manager. Practice always did make perfect once the Argentinian, who had occupied the suspended Emmanuel Petit's in midfield, had gone, a scoreless two hours was more or less guaranteed. Arsenal merely defended with even greater determination, content in the knowledge that Petit will back for Wednesday's replay and happy to see their principal championship rivals forced into another big match. Manchester United will doubtless be concerned about the effects of a replay on the away leg of their Champions League semi-final against Juventus on Wednesday week. Yesterday, to compound the situation, they lost Denis Irwin with a knee injury. All might have been so much simpler for Manchester United had they not had what appeared to be a perfectly legal goal disallowed seven minutes before half-time. This was the way of it: Beckham, having strayed across to the left wing, released Giggs, whereupon the linesman raised his flag. Giggs was not offside but Dwight Yorke in the middle clearly was. Giggs took the ball on, the flag went down, and from the Welshman's centre Yorke, now onside, headed down to Keane, who drove a shot into the roof of the net. Elleray at first gave the goal but the flag had been raised again and after consulting with his linesman the referee awarded Arsenal a free-kick. United were as much puzzled as angry. If Giggs had not played the ball when Yorke was offside, how could offside then be given in what wassurely a separate situation? Presumably the linesman felt that in getting his head to Giggs's cross Yorke then had to be pulled up for falling offside in the first place. If so it was a piece of retrospective legislation which stretched the game's statutes of limitation. That said, Manchester United should still have reached Wembley. While Arsenal defended with their usual discipline and efficiency, the absence of Petit burdened Patrick Vieira with the task of creating an attacking momentum against the combined strength of Roy Keane and the excellent Nicky Butt. With Dennis Bergkamp's search for space restricted by Jaap Stam and Marc Overmars unable to exploit the booking Gary Neville received for fouling him twice in the second minute, Arsenal took a long time to create a clear chance. Not soUnited. As early as the eighth minute Cole deftly turned a cross into the path of Giggs, whose shot cleared the bar. In stoppage time at the end of the first half Yorke exchanged passes with Cole to leave himself with just David Seaman to beat, but his finishing was timid. In the opening minute of the second half Cole failed to make proper contact as he met Gary Neville's low cross and on the hour Cole wasted a further opportunity after Beckham and Giggs had exposed arare gap in the middle of Arsenal's defence. The opening period of extra-time saw United attacking but the second might have produced an unlikely winning goal after Berkgamp sent Fredrik Ljungberg, who had replaced Overmars in the 89th minute, clear. The Swede should have scored but delayed his shot, allowing Peter Schmeichel to narrow the angle and make the save. Victory at that point would have flattered Arsenal, but they are still not going to yield either half of the Double that easily. Replay: Villa Park, Wednesday 8pm.

Subject: Football 365 Report ARSENAL 0 MANCHESTER UNITED 0 (After Extra Time) It was the result neither side would have really wanted but even United were unable to loosen Arsenal's vice-like grip on the domestic Double in yesterday's first FA Cup semi-final. The Gunners endured their tenth sending-off of the season when Nelson Vivas was dismissed four minutes into extra-time, were outplayed for long periods but still tenaciously emerged unscathed to set up a replay on Wednesday. While United will rue a host of missed chances, their fans' anger at a controversial first-half decision which ruled out a Roy Keane 'goal' was undiminished even at the final whistle. Referee David Elleray, who had an inconsistent game throughout, deemed that Dwight Yorke had been offside in the build-up to the strike even though the linesman first raised then dropped then again raised his flag. Although Arsenal had two late opportunities to claim an unlikely victory, their seventh consecutive clean sheet was built around the heroic efforts of centre-backs Tony Adams and Martin Keown and the tireless running of their midfield. United's treble dream may still be alive but Emmanuel Petit will be back for the replay and their players looked to be tiring in extra-time against a side who they have failed to beat in their past six meetings. Chelsea boss Gianluca Vialli and perhaps Juventus coach Carlo Ancelotti will have been the only men celebrating at the final whistle as United have another fixture in a packed season. However, with neither of the Premiership's top two having lost a single game this year, a replay had always seemed the most likely outcome. After an exemplary minute's silence by fans to mark the tenth anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, the tie immediately burst into life amid a series of bruising challenges. Gary Neville and Vivas were booked in the first six minutes and David Beckham only just escaped after apparently elbowing Nigel Winterburn in the ribs. The game nevertheless flowed from end to end with Jaap Stam and Adams both making important interceptions, while Keane and Vieira, both full of running, provided a bulwark in front of them. Chances came sporadically as Ryan Giggs blasted a shot well over from just 12 yards out and Peter Schmeichel tipped a header from Tony Adams over the bar before then denying Bergkamp. Just as it seemed as if the frenetic early pace had taken its toll though, United looked to have taken the lead on 38 minutes through Keane. Giggs played the ball outside Lee Dixon on the left flank and, with Yorke in an offside position inside him as he tried to hold his run, the linesman immediately raised his flag only to put it almost straight down again. He raised the flag once more when the former Aston Villa striker - by now clearly onside - then flicked on Giggs' ensuing cross towards Keane, who blasted his shot into the roof of the net. But after consulting his assistant, Elleray seemed to agree that Yorke had earlier been interfering with play - despite the linesman having apparently changed his mind. The decision incensed the United players, who berated both officials at length, and Denis Irwin was booked soon afterwards before escaping another yellow card moments later for a tackle from behind. United had nevertheless seized the initiative and Cole then put Yorke clear just inside the penalty area but he could not get the ball out from his under his feet and fluffed it straight along the ground into David Seaman's hands. The furious protests continued as the half-time whistle blew but United were straight back on the offensive after the interval as they strung together a series of vibrant moves and Vivas escaped a second yellow card for a trip on Keane. Keown and Adams continued to stand resolute though and even when Cole was sent through by Giggs, he wastefully miscued his shot straight at Seaman. Once again the match started to drift as the tempo dropped, fouls went unpunished and both sides lacked width, with Arsenal increasingly bereft of attacking ideas. Keane headed straight at Seaman from Yorke's cross, Beckham struck a free-kick inches wide, Giggs directed another dead-ball effort straight at the keeper and Anelka blazed wildly at a chance after bouncing off Stam's challenge. However, for all United's late pressure, the match was heading inexorably towards extra-time. With Marc Overmars already off injured, Arsenal were further weakened four minutes into added-time by Vivas' sending-off for his second yellow card - an off-the-ball elbow into Beckham's face. United, with Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now both on, still failed to make the most of their extra man or the increasingly open spaces and their frustration showed as Neville flung the ball away and himself only just escaped a second booking. Both sides had half-chances with Stam blocking Bergkamp's effort and Yorke firing wide but with three minutes left, it was substitute Fredrik Ljungberg who raced through on goal after being put through by Bergkamp. Schmeichel saved brilliantly with his legs and it took a last-ditch block from Neville to deny the Dutchman himself as he threatened to dribble his way through the entire United defence. So it is back to Villa Park in three days for another titanic tussle. At least there has to be a winner then. OFFSIDE DECISION BAFFLES KEANE Frustrated Roy Keane left Villa Park feeling robbed of a goal he is convinced should have taken Manchester United to Wembley and broke champions Arsenal's iron grip on the FA Cup. Keane struck after 38 minutes of the semi-final clash of the Premiership's top two only to see his shot controversially ruled out by an offside flag to allow Arsenal to secure a goalless draw and a replay on Wednesday. As United celebrated, referee David Elleray ran to consult his linesman, who had flagged Dwight Yorke offside in the build-up to the strike only to put the flag down again before finally raising it a second time. Arsenal went on to survive, despite playing almost the whole of extra-time with just ten men after Nelson Vivas was sent off. Keane said: ''We're very disappointed. Ryan Giggs played the ball past the defender and there was somebody else in there Yorke but maybe not even standing in an offside position and he had nothing to do with the general play. We tried to explain this to the referee but obviously he went with the linesman, which we are really disappointed about because we always knew there would only be one goal in it.'' Vivas' dismissal for his second yellow card - elbowing Nicky Butt in the face - was Arsenal's tenth red card of the season and the 22nd since Arsene Wenger took over at Highbury. The Frenchman said: ''Personally I think the first yellow card was harsh. Then I was surprised about the game at the time. Somebody said it was an elbow and if that's the case, he deserved to go off as it's stupid. I'm not especially proud of ten red cards but I think it was a fair game, it was hard, because every ball was a fight. But there could easily have been a red card for one of the other team as well.'' Both teams had their chances, with Yorke and Andy Cole wasting openings for United, and Arsenal going close through Fredrik Ljungberg and Dennis Bergkamp in the closing stages. However, despite being outplayed for long periods and losing Vivas with 26 minutes left, Arsenal still secured their seventh consecutive clean sheet, with Tony Adams and Martin Keown outstanding. ''We had to be brilliant in defence and Keown had possibly his best game for us. I must say he has had a great season but today he was outstanding,'' said Wenger. ''He was solid, sharp and very committed. We needed that and as well as quality, we needed experience and tactical knowledge."

Subject: Savour the taste of snap, tackle and block By Jim White Monday April 12, 1999 ---------------- When Martin Keown is run close by Nicky Butt for the man of the match award, it is clear what kind of game this was: a masterclass x for those who take pleasure in the destructive arts. It was one of those afternoons when the crowd is obliged to take their enjoyment from the perfectly-timed sliding tackle rather than the mazy run, from the last-second lunging intervention rather than crafty back heel. 'A predictable result,' Alex Ferguson called it afterwards. This is what happens when two sides who know too much about each other meet. Before the kick-off, fans outside the Holte End were handing out copies of the Arsenal song sheet. Not that anyone needed prompting for the most important tune of the afternoon: the lyrics of the number 'How to Stop Manchester United' are well practised down Highbury way. As Juventus showed last Wednesday, they go roughly like this: leave their defence with only one forward to mark, play tight on Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, and overwhelm Roy Keane in midfield. With three wins and a draw in the previous four meetings between the two clubs, the Gunners have them off pat. xAnd United, too, appear to be learning their lines for how to stop Arsenal. Marc Overmars has proved their nemesis of late, but this time, from the moment in the third minute when Gary Neville gave him an early opportunity to scrutinise the advertising hoardings, it was clear United were anxious to apply some roughage to stop the Dutchman's runs which had so unseated them recently. Neville's challenge set the tone. All over the pitch, the first prority was to snap and bite and close down, to prevent opponents gaining an inch. But such destruction leaves little energy or opportunity for enterprise or skill. Arsenal created little, United not much more and when opportunities came, Cole, Bergkamp and particularly Yorke were all profligate. So when, late in the first half, Giggs deceived Lee Dixon and crossed for Keane to smash home, it seemed that would settle it. The linesman though, his flag up and down like a whore's drawers, was less convinced. Arsene Wenger thought it a perfectly justified decision, the kind of strong officiating you need at this sort of occasion. It will surprise no-one that Alex Ferguson didn't agree. 'I've seen it on television and I thought it was quite amazing,' said the United manager. 'And that's all I'm saying.' The last thing some teams might have needed in such tight times was to see their sending-off tally hit double figures for the season, as Arsenal did when Nelson Vivas navigated his elbow into Butt's cheekbone. But the Gunners are masters of this ten-man stuff. Besides no-one can man the barricades like Keown, Adams and Winterburn, and those magnificent ambassadors for arthritics anonymous saw off whatever United could dispatch in their direction. So another game on Wednesday; neither team is giving up their Double possibilities easily. 'I think we'll be practising penalties at training,' said Ferguson. And he would be wise to. The only way you can see these two stealing an inch on each other is from 12 yards out.

Subject: Deputy Chief Executive Peter Kenyon MANCHESTER UNITED deputy chief executive Peter Kenyon has insisted no-one will be resigning from the Old Trafford board of directors following the failure of BSkyB's £623m proposed takeover. The bid was rejected by the Department of Trade and Industry on Friday after the Government completed their study of a report by the Monopolies and Mergers Commission. Trade secretary Stephen Byers concluded that the takeover by Sky, which would have seen media tycoon Rupert Murdoch own a major stake in what is already the world's richest club, was not in the public interest. But Kenyon said there was no chance of United chairman Martin Edwards bowing to calls for his resignation from some fans over the failed takeover. ''We didn't see that there were real competition issues and we certainly didn't see that there were public interest issues,'' he said. ''We certainly don't think there will be any resignations on the board.'' Instead, United will look to Edwards and plc chairman Sir Roland Smith to continue to strengthen the club's position on and off the field. ''We have to look at the tremendous success that has been built," Kenyon continued. "Martin Edwards has been chairman for over 17 years; Sir Roland and Martin took this club public in 1991 and there is a tremendous record of success both on and off the field. I think it speaks for itself. We have a very solid board and will continue to strengthen the business. Let's not forget the 550 people who work for Manchester United and we're all committed to continuing the tremendous success we've had over the last ten years. Football is a very emotional sport...but we think in the long term people will, indeed do, support the board in general.'' Kenyon claimed that had the bid succeeded, it would not have led to any bias with regards to the Sky's current television deal with the Premier League. ''We are members of the Premier League and are entitled to one vote. Whether we are Manchester United plc, are independent, or are owned by Sky - we really don't have any more influence than that single vote when it comes down to it.'' But he added: ''Inevitably there is disappointment because we have been working on this for the last nine months. We took a long time to review and recommend it, and it's unfortunate that the Government have blocked it. The resulting benefits of the Sky proposal and bid - with the complimentary skills that they brought to the business - would see Manchester United becoming part of a much bigger resourced company obviously with a global reach. ''But this being blocked in no way prevents us from doing what we want to do, from building on the tremendous solid base we have got and the tremendous support we have got worldwide. I think there are enough case studies, both domestically and internationally, to show that you can't just throw money at it and buy success. The success at Manchester United over the last decade - in fact the last 100 years - has been about a lot more than cash. We don't see it like that.'' As for the many fans who protested against the takeover bid, Kenyon said: ''I think you have to counter the more vocal element of our supporters with perhaps the silent majority.''

Subject: Football - Battle of giants ends in deadlock Arsenal 0 Manchester United 0 By Glenn Moore at Villa Park Villa Park has been a moribund place in recent weeks as the home club have slid down the Premiership table but, yesterday, it shook to the collision of giants. Manchester United and Arsenal, the modern game's behemoths, battled each other to a standstill during two hours of sound and fury. Though long on drama it was short on goals and the pair must meet again, at the same venue on Wednesday night, for the right to play Newcastle at Wembley in the FA Cup final on 22 May. The draw made it a good afternoon for Chelsea, who could go top while their rivals are duelling on Wednesday night if they repeat yesterday's victory at Wimbledon at Middlesbrough. It was a less enjoyable afternoon for Nelson Vivas, Arsenal's Argentinian defender, and the officials. David Elleray, the referee, had a generally impressive afternoon with his dismissal of Vivas, for elbowing Nicky Butt early in extra-time, thoroughly justified. But, shortly before the interval, he allowed his assistant to persuade him to chalk off a valid United goal which might well have settled the match. With Ryan Giggs on the left wing, and apparently about to cross, Dwight Yorke strayed into an offside position in the box. The assistant put his flag up only to take it down when Giggs, instead, slipped the ball past Lee Dixon and headed for the byline. By the time he crossed Yorke was onside but the flag went back up as the Tobagan flicked on the cross for Roy Keane to drill into the roof of the net. Elleray disallowed the goal and stuck by his decision after consulting the linesman. This was an error, though Yorke had briefly strayed into an offside position he was in no way interfering with play as Giggs was still in possession. "It was ridiculous, quite amazing," said Alex Ferguson, the United manager. This, unsurprisingly, was not the view of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal's manager, who said: "It was offside, it was indicated by the linesman early on. I don't know how anyone could complain." Wenger, as usual, did not see the dismissal of Vivas, the 22nd Arsenal player to be sent off under his command and the 10th this season. He did concede, however: "If he has elbowed the guy he deserved to be sent off and it is stupid." Wenger thought, with some justification, that Vivas's first booking, for fouling Beckham after five minutes, was harsh but added: "An elbow is normally a red card in itself. "I'm not proud of our record but one or two United players could have got a red card. It was a physical battle but not an unfair game." Ferguson indicated that, with next week's trip to Turin to play Juventus in mind, he would make changes for the replay. He also thought United had created enough chances to win the match regardless of the disallowed goal. Indeed, United, unbeaten in seven previous Villa Park semi-finals, ought to have repeated their 1983 triumph over Arsenal at the Birmingham ground. Ferguson added, in a reference to Denis Irwin, who was injured late in normal time: "The result was predictable, it'll be the same on Wednesday. It could go to penalties and our best penalty-taker will be missing." Had either side made more of some decent approach play a replay would not have been required. It was, however, a day when the best performances came from defenders with Tony Adams, Martin Keown, Jaap Stam and Gary Neville outstanding. Two players, Vivas and Neville, were booked in the first five minutes but then the game settled. Arsenal, in their 20th FA Cup semi-final, began brightly with Peter Schmeichel tipping an Adams header over and saving well from Dennis Bergkamp. United, playing their 22nd semi, had gone close when Ryan Giggs shot over after nine minutes. After Keane's disallowed goal they went close again with Butt passing up one chance and Yorke fluffing another. It was another poor game from Yorke, back on his old ground, but Cole was no better failing to reach a Giggs cross soon after the break then shooting weakly when the Welshman put him through on the hour. With a full house creating a vibrant atmosphere the game remained end-to-end and Keane, David Beckham and Nicolas Anelka all wasted opportunites to settle the tie before extra-time. United had been marginally the better team, especially in midfield. Wenger had played Parlour on the right in an attempt to utilise his attacking prowess but, in the absence of the suspended Emmanuel Petit, who will be back on Wednesday, Butt and Keane over-powered the holders in the centre. United increased their dominance after Vivas was dismissed but Arsenal, paradoxically, created the better chances with Bergkamp denied first by Schmeichel then by Gary Neville's tackle. The best opportunity fell to Frederick Ljungberg but, released by Bergkamp with three minutes left, he could not beat Schmeichel. "We showed our usual resilience and organisation," added Wenger. "Even in extra-time I thought we could win it. We defended brilliantly, showed quality, experience and tactical knowledge."

Subject: Telegraph report Arsenal (0 0 Manchester Utd (0) 0 (after extra-time) ON AN afternoon of raised temperatures, flags and elbows, this tense FA Cup semi-final between the nation's heavyweights finished honours even, although Arsenal's honour was tarnished by their 10th dismissal of the season. When Nelson Vivas deservedly departed in extra-time for elbowing Nicky Butt, United were handed a perfect opportunity to prevent a draining replay on Wednesday, a week before their date with destiny in Turin. Yet if Arsenal have no defence against the charge of indiscipline laid against them, the Double-winners do possess a defence where it matters most, suffocating opposing players with carefully-prepared traps and expertly-timed tackles. United kept slamming into the yellow brick wall. In stretching Arsenal's run of de fensive parsimony to almost 10 hours, Martin Keown gave one of the displays of his career, dominating the airwaves and constantly thwarting United on the ground with outstretched foot and speed of anticipation. "Keown was outstanding," said Arsne Wenger, Arsenal's manager. "He was sharp and physically determined." This marathon of a match was dominated by both sets of backs and their defensively-minded midfielders. If Keown caught the eye for Arsenal, the industrious Butt excelled for United, coming in for Paul Scholes and stiffening midfield against Vivas and Patrick Vieira. Keown grew in stature when United increased their tempo after controversially being denied a legitimate 38th-minute goal. The debate arose when David Beckham spun Ray Parlour and slid the ball to Ryan Giggs, whose determination had been increased by a bad miss after only nineminutes. Giggs's trickery caught out both Arsenal's defence and the linesman on the far side. As the Welshman pretended to cross, the linesman raised his flag at Dwight Yorke who was jogging away from goal. The dummy played, Giggs effectively passed to himself, tipping and running past Lee Dixon. David Elleray had not seen the flag so play continued, the flag dropping as Giggs's cross caused chaos in Seaman's box. Yorke was involved in the ball reaching Roy Keane, whose finish was emphatic, giving David Seaman nox chance. Realising that Yorke had played a part in the move, the linesman then waved again. This time Elleray took notice and after a brief consultation, inevitably surrounded by a swarm of seething United players, Keane's goal was disallowed. It was a poor decision, patently against FIFA's spirit of encouraging attacking play and the angle and intent of Yorke's movement. United's striker had not been actively interfering when Giggs made his break, particularly as Giggs kept possession. "It's quite amazing," was AlexFerguson's tart observation. Wenger, predictably, observed: "I don't know what you can complain about. It was offside indicated by the linesman but the referee didn't see the flag." Stirred by a sense of injustice, Ferguson's players charged even morex hungrily at Arsenal. But Keown and his colleagues, called "graduates of the defensive arts" by Wenger, stood firm. United, too, were living with Arsenal's offensive forays. Ferguson's players have suffered too often against Arsenal in recent meetings and had their game-plan well prepared here. United's defenders moved quickly to pressurise the opponent in possession, even to the extent of hunting Nicolas Anelka, Marc Overmars and Dennis Bergkamp into midfield. Their dogging tactics allowed midfielders like Butt and Keane to swoop and nick the ball. United enjoyed the better of the first half, if not the luck. Arsenal's bestchance had come from a set-piece. Vivas's right-wing corner was aimed towards Tony Adams, who deceived Jaap Stam by feigning a near-post run but then stepped back to meet the ball. Peter Schmeichel needed all his agility to tip Adams's header over. Andy Cole threatened early in the second half but his radar was having an off day. On the hour, Arsenal began to awake. Bergkamp chipped over, Anelka slashed a shot wide but extra-time soon arrived. Five minutes into the additional period, Vivas caught Butt in the face. Already cautioned, the Argentinian had to walk. "I'm not especially proud of 10 red cards," said Wenger. "It was a fight for every ball today but there could have been red cards for them." Indeed. Denis Irwin, already booked, went unpunished for going through the back of Vieira. Gary Neville, booked after only a minute for daftly catching Overmars, could have gone for dissent, slamming the ball into the ground in frustration. Neville, though, played well and saw off Overmars. Irwin, unfortunately, was caught by Parlour and hobbled off. Vivas's expulsion forced Arsenal to reform as 4-4-1. Kanu displaced Anelka and brought some important ball-retaining skills to midfield. Both sides had chances to settle it: Bergkamp demanded a good save from Schmeichel and then Yorke headed wide. Fredrik Ljungberg naively took an extra touch, so allowing Schmeichel to get in position to smother the ensuing shot. In the final minute, the dribbling Bergkamp was superbly dispossessed by Neville, a fitting end to an afternoon of defensive resilience at both ends. Wenger took heart from the forthcoming return of Emmanuel Petit from suspension at Villa Park on Wednesday. Ferguson did not sound perturbed at the addition of another tie within seven days of the Champions' League trip to Juventus. "By the time we get to Turin, we will be champing at the bit," he said to an Italian journalist.
