Not For Sale by RED KELLY The other day I received my copy of "Not For Sale - Manchester United. Murdoch and the Defeat of BSkyB" by Adam Brown and Andy Walsh. Trouble was we are dead busy at the moment and so I've been trying my best not to pick it up as I had an idea I wouldn't be able to put it down. I left it on the kitchen table and during our lunch break the day it arrived, our co-worker Koo, had been reading it. He said he'd be back in the studio as soon as he'd finished the paragraph. Half an hour later he arrived back admitting he hadn't been able to drag himself away. Mid afternoon he went down to make a cup of tea and the very same thing happened. I had to hide the damned thing from him! But try as I might to keep away from the book, the other night I succumbed, picked it up and started to read. OK - so I was involved all the way through the campaign and was party to a great deal of what was going on, but if anyone wants a superbly written and obviously well researched insight into how the campaign was conducted, or the reasons behind it etc., then get hold of a copy of this book from IMUSA - you surely won't be disappointed. It's compelling stuff about how the club was saved from under the cold nose of the dirty digger. And after you've read it and assimilated what it has to say, imagine what life as a Manchester United supporter would have been like if the club had been sold to BSkyB and thus lost it's independence. It doesn't bear thinking about. As the book says: "This book is dedicated to everyone who contributed anything, however large or small, to the defeat of BSkyB's takeover of Manchester United" - I second that. Cheers RED KELLY

Neville back on the mend «« Gary Neville is back in training and says he is close to a return after revealing that a club statement about his fitness had been misleading. Neville is hoping it will be third time lucky as he sets his sights on another comeback to revive his shattered season. Neville: On fitness trail The England and Manchester United right full back has had a nightmare campaign so far, playing just two full senior games since last May. He has not managed to complete a single Premiership game this season, his only league outing being the 80 minutes he played against Newcastle on August 30. Last week, of course, United said he had been struck down by a recurrence of the groin problem which forced him out of England's plans during the summer, and delayed his start to the season. It seems this is not the case and Neville says it does not mean another long lay off. He says he felt the injury had not fully healed and was told to do more build up work rather than rush back into serious action. Because of this he told Kevin Keegan he would not be available for the England - Scotland Euro 2000 play-offs, and pulled out of United's squad for last weekend's game against Leicester City. He is eager to get back into the game after his longest ever lay off and is close to making it. The only senior football the elder of the Neville brothers has played since the Champions' League final in Barcelona was the European Super Cup final against Lazio in August, and the Champions' League game against Sturm Graz on November 2.

Fergie's transfer foray on hold «« Sir Alex Ferguson faces a grilling at next week's annual meeting as to why the promised 'World star' has not arrived at Old Trafford. There may still plenty of transfer talk circulating Old Trafford, but it seems the rumour mongers had been working overtime when they predicted a move in the market before next week's annual meeting. Last week speculation was rife that Sir Alex Ferguson could be ready to add to his squad before the club's shareholders ask what happened to the big name he promised them in the summer. The United boss had said, after completing the treble, that he hoped to reward the fans by bringing in a World star. Any potential deals failed to materialised and the only close-season signings were Mark Bosnich who cost nothing, and Quinton Fortune the young South African signed from Atletico Madrid. Biggest signing this season has been Italian goalkeeper Massimo Taibi who cost £4 million in August, but his future looks uncertain. The Sicilian is currently in the Reserve side and due to play against Everton Reserves at Gigg Lane tomorrow as the majority of his first team colleagues are away on international duty. His much publicised errors in the games against Liverpool, Southampton and Chelsea have seen him slip out of the limelight and he is now third in line behind Bosnich and Raimond van der Gouw. As for the big name signing, United could be waiting until the UEFA curfew lifts in December before making a move for a player who would be eligible for the quarter-finals of the Champions' League.

"Close Encounter of the Fulham kind" sent to The Theatre of Dreams >>>> From: "brian palmer" To: some fans who don`t hate Man.u I don`t know if its of any interest to you but when i was travelling home to birmingham on the train last week after the Leicester game , some Fulham supporters sat by me , they had been to Stockport where they were beaten 2-1 , so I didn`t think they would be very happy! but, we started chatting , and these guys must be some of the keenest supporters I have come across, I have travelled some miles over the years following the reds , but , these lads left me for dead, the one in particular has visited 83 english league grounds and 9 scottish grounds, one of the ones he has missed is villa park, but the way john gregory`s going he may get there next year! Usually when I talk to supporters of other teams the inevitable question who do you support ? arises, when I reply Man.u. this is usually met with streams of abuse and the conversation comes to a halt ! but not so with these lads, they were genuinely interested in what was happening in all aspects of life at O.T.and had many pleasant memories of watching us as neutrals as well as in games against us, particularly Barcelona last season.I felt very encouraged that perhaps everyone isn`t agains`t us as is usually the case, mind you its one of the few occasions in 24 years !!

Bosnich defies wisdom «« Mark Bosnich missed training today, resting his hamstring injury before he captains Australia against Brazil this weekend. The United keeper seems set to defy club wisdom and play against the Brazilian under-23 side, also featuring Ronaldo and Denilson, in two matches at the Sydney Olympic Stadium and the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Sir Alex Ferguson revealed how Bosnich was suffering from knee and hamstring injuries after United's 2-0 win over Leicester last weekend. But any thoughts about pulling the keeper out of the squad were stopped in their tracks after the controversy over Leeds' refusal to let Harry Kewell go. Bosnich said: "Players are always going to get grumbles from clubs about the time of the matches and the travel involved. The problem won't go away. "The players are the meat in the sandwich in these situations." If Bosnich plays in the second game in Melbourne on Wednesday he would not return for training until the day before United's trip to Derby - which may give Rai van der Gouw or Massimo Taibi a chance to start.
