Subject: UNITED MAY REST SCHMEICHEL AGAIN Peter Schmeichel may be rested for Manchester United's trip to Leicester on Saturday. Schmeichel returned to Old Trafford this week after his holiday in Barbados and United boss Alex Ferguson has hinted he may continue with second-choice goalkeeper Raimond van der Gouw at Filbert Street. Ferguson intends to check if Schmeichel, who is quitting United at the end of the season because he can no longer cope with the demands of the English game, is physically and mentally right to return. Ferguson claimed after Sunday's victory over West Ham that the rest periods for his World Cup stars were over, but he may allow Schmeichel another match off. ''We will wait and see,'' said Ferguson. ''We will see how much Peter has enjoyed himself while he was away.'' more.......teamtalk: Late decision on Schmeichel «« Alex Ferguson will make a late decision on whether to play Peter Schmeichel against Leicester on Saturday - or stick with Raimond van der Gouw. The Danish stalwart returned from holiday in Barbados this week but Ferguson will want to see how fit Schmeichel has kept himself before dropping his Dutch understudy back to the bench. Fergie said: "We will wait and see. We will see how much Peter has enjoyed himself while he was away." The United manager prescribed Schmeichel's break to keep his attitude fresh for the run-in but the 36-year-old could return jet-lagged and rusty. Meanwhile, van der Gouw appears to be a lucky talisman for the United side - who have won the last six league fixtures in which he has started.

From: "Jon Leigh" To: barrylee@post3.tele.dk Subject: How To Buy MUFC Shares in the UK In England it's fairly simple. You can walk into almost any High Street branch of a major bak and buy shares there and then - and the minimum deal/price is fairly reasonable. Or you could phone your own bank and ask them to deal for you. Or if you bank with First Direct you could phone them and, again, they will deal for you. In terms of cost, the general minimum commission is of the order of £20 per transaction or around 1% whichever is higher. Then on top of that is stamp duty which is pretty small - of the order of the price of a pint or perhaps even lower. Or you could try the stockbroker I use - Redmayne Bentley based in Leeds. They have offices all over the country so they could let you know the nearest. It's so long since I opened an account with them but I seem to remember it wasn't particularly time-consuming and they are reasonable when it comes to charges. The number is : - 0113-243-6941.

Subject: Man Utd power cut It took me well over an hour to get out! This was because they only took people out at the extreme ends of the stands, and my seat is right on the half way line. Personally, I cannot understand how a stand with such a large capacity (I think it's about 12,000 in tiers 2/3) can be built with no emergency lighting in the stairways, as there is no other way to get out (all other areas of the stadium allow people to get onto the pitch, and out of the stadium in many other ways. At least it has happened in a none real emergency, even if it was a large inconvenience (4 hours in my seat just to watch a match!). Hopefully they will learn something from it. Some people had major problems - one couple near me who live in London missed their last train at 8pm, and were told by the train people that it was tough luck and their tickets also would not be valid on the next day. They had had a meal in the Red Cafe beforehand and left their bags in there with their train tickets too, so I don't know what time they got out - I got out about 7:50. > -----Original Message----- > From: Richard Martin [SMTP:Richard.Martin@JSTAND.DEMON.CO.UK] > Well I hope that they do get it sorted out because I can tell you that > it's not very easy getting a 70 year old father who can hardly walk down > stairs in complete darkness when you couldn't see 2 inches in front of you. > > What really pissed me was that the club seemed to have no contingency > plan for this.I don't know what it was like elsewhere in NOrth > Stand,but > the stewards in J didn't have so much as a torch or battery-powered > lantern just to help light the way to and down the stairs. > > I'm just glad that we left early as I've read stories that some people > took up to an hour (?) to get out of the ground.Is this really true ? > Richard

Subject: SIR BOBBY HITS OUT AT ''DISASTROUS'' WORLD CUP PLAN Manchester United director Sir Bobby Charlton placed himself in direct opposition to the club's prospective owner Rupert Murdoch as he warned that holding the World Cup every two years could be a ''disastrous'' mistake. Media tycoon Murdoch, who is looking to buy United through his BSkyB subsidiary, has backed a controversial proposal by FIFA president Sepp Blatter to hold biennial World Cup tournaments. ''I think the World Cup is a great international event and there's no reason why it shouldn't be every second year,'' said Australian billionaire Murdoch, who would clearly love to win the TV rights for the competition. FIFA have already taken a step towards clearing the way to a biennial World Cup by announcing a plan to harmonise the international football calendar. A meeting will be held in Zurich on Friday with a view to reschedule continental tournaments such as the European Championships, the Copa America and the African Nations Cup, which at present are held in different cycles. Blatter's plan for a biennial World Cup will also be debated ahead of further discussions in March by the body's Strategic Studies and Executive Committees. But Sir Bobby was distinctly unimpressed by the suggestion of a biennial World Cup and warned: ''It would be a major mistake, it could be disastrous.'' Ever the diplomat, the World Cup legend, who was speaking in Cannes as he publicised England's bid to host the 2006 tournament at a football trade fair, did not want to be seen to be directly criticising FIFA president Blatter. ''I respect Sepp Blatter and I know he's doing it for the right reasons. He's still doing it for football,'' said Sir Bobby. ''I'm a bit of a football romantic and football has to be the beneficiary all the time, Sepp Blatter is always saying that. ''But I don't know if football would be the winner if we had a World Cup every two years because I think it would put too much pressure on players and clubs. ''You would have to improve the size of squads and doing that doesn't necessarily mean you improve the quality. ''The mystique and romance of winning the World Cup would maybe be diminished and that wouldn't benefit football either. ''It's a fact that certain countries would love the idea as it's a bonanza for them but it wouldn't be a bonanza for them in the long-term.''

Subject: Atmospheric conditions at OT. Hi All, A couple have posted about the improved crowd response at OT for the Hammers game. I watched it on TV and must agree that it was certainly the loudest the Reds have sounded for along time, including Eurogames. I thought there were a few factors involved. 1. The power failure which would have engendered a sort of communal togetherness against a common adversary. Blitz spirit as older farts may recall. The uncertainty of whether the game would actually start or not would draw people together emotionally. Further, although the ground announcer asked people to remain in their seats, most seemed to actually start the game standing which does help the vocal cords in some unaccountable way. 2. The efforts of our Cockney chums who would also have been affected by the power loss as above, but who were provocative with their pathetic Munich stuff. 3. Fergie, according to the post match interview, actually had appealed in the match programme,to the spectators to get more involved. I don't know what effect that would have on the suits, but it may have had some influence too. 4. The quality of United's play, especially the first 15 minutes should have moved the most silent of suits. An early goal gets you going, doesn't it? 5. Perhaps the effects microphones were better placed that usual. Let's hope we can have more of the same, but next time perhaps only turning of the light for 15 minutes might be enough. Please will one of you LS's who was there give us a run down on the chants and songs from both sides? It is frustrating to not quite pick up the words of some of the spontaneous creations which seemed to have been emerging. Cheers, David Marshall Brisbane, Australia. Red 'til I'm dead.

Subject: OLE COULD FACE NORWAY CHOP By Mirror Sport staff Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told to get out of Old Trafford to save his international career. The Manchester United striker, nicknamed the "baby-faced assassin", was advised by his new Norway coach Nils Johan Semb to seek a move in the summer. Semb is deeply concerned that Solskjaer's bit-part role as a United substitute will harm his international prospects in Norway's Euro 2000 campaign. Semb said: "Obviously, there isn't much Ole Gunnar can do except try and improve his status, i.e. play more regularly. "He does well when he has his chance, scoring goals which he is always good at. Ten goals in 10 matches sums up his ability. If he wants to improve himself internationally, he must take a good look at himself in the summer and see whether it is necessary to change clubs." The £6million-rated Solskjaer was given the ultimatum during a Norwegian get-together at Blackburn Rovers' training ground over the weekend. Solskjaer, who came off the bench to score the fourth goal against West Ham on Sunday, adores United and does not want to leave. But he now knows that his international future depends on regular first-team football. He admitted: "At the moment, I'm quite happy to stay at United, but I have to listen to my international coach. It is always an honour to play for your country, and I have to be playing regularly or I will jeopardise my place." Like Teddy Sheringham, Solskjaer has been hit by Alex Ferguson's decision to go with the £20m strike force of Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole as his first choice. Semb's message has also gone out to other Norwegian stars in the Premiership - as he wants his players to be match fit. Solskjaer, who turned down a move to Spurs earlier in the season, is sure to be in the squad for the March Euro 2000 qualifier in Greece, however, as Chelsea's Tore Andre Flo is currently injured.

Subject: Cruyff could go on loan «« Cruyff: Hasta la vista ? Jordi Cruyff could go on loan to Celta Vigo before the end of the week - if both sides agree to a deal which includes a recall clause The Spanish side made an enquiry about the 24-year-old striker last week but were told United had no plans to sell. However, Alex Ferguson has hinted he would consider a loan to be in the best interests of the player if it gives him a chance of regular first team football. Cruyff, who is on record as saying he would only quit United for a move back to Spain, is apparently keen on the move. He said: "I am happy at United but a loan deal would get me first-team football which may suit everybody. I would return to United next season."

Subject: United close in on Moyes «« Alex Ferguson is remaining tight lipped while speculation mounts that United are closing in on Preston's David Moyes for the number two job at Old Trafford. Moyes is believed to be anxious to receive formal permission to talk to Reds officials after reports this week claimed the 35-year-old Scot had jumped to the top of Ferguson's wanted list. Chairman Martin Edwards, however, dismissed the story which said the United boss had singled out Moyes as the successor to Brian Kidd. He said: "Alex Ferguson has not made up his mind about his new assistant so to say we'll make an official move to Preston is just not true." United appear to be testing the water over Moyes, waiting to hear that he wants the job before making the formal approach to Preston - in a bid to save face should their target shun the interest. It is a tried and trusted method which brought Dwight Yorke to the club in the summer after the first reports of Ferguson's interest emerged shortly after Christmas the year before. Controlled leaks to the media, which can always be denied, unsettle the target in question who gives an indication of how much he would fancy the switch before United make an official move. It is designed to avoid the embarrassing public mess which occurred when Everton recently sought a new manager but had to settle for their fifth or sixth choice when a number of top names, including United's then assistant Brian Kidd, snubbed their offer. Moyes' reaction so far, suggests United are closing in.

Subject: Nevland joins Gothenburg «« Erik Nevland has joined top Swedish side IFK Gothenburg on loan for a season. The Norwegian Under-21 striker is under contract at Old Trafford until 2001 but his first team opportunities have been limited since United's exit from the Worthington Cup. The move is the first sign that, as exclusively revealed here in October, United are preparing to set-up a similar arrangement with Gothenburg to the one already in operation with Royal Antwerp. Alex Ferguson opened IFK's new youth academy last year and was impressed by the Swedish side's record for bringing players, like Jesper Blomqvist, through the ranks. Nevland said: "Alex Ferguson says that I have a future at Old Trafford but I would prefer to play at a club where I am playing regularly. "The manager has been positive about me going out on loan."
