Subject: Jesper vows to win over fans By STUART MATHIESON Jesper Blomqvist: Time has come JESPER Blomqvist has vowed to wing his way into Manchester United fans' affections - starting tomorrow in the FA Cup against Fulham at Old Trafford. The Swedish flanker believes his time has come to turn on the style consistently as the Reds' treble-chasing season hots up. But Blomqvist insists the next stage of his United development has nothing to do with the hamstring injury that is keeping Ryan Giggs out. Blomqvist was at pains to discover from manager Alex Ferguson before he signed for the Reds for £4.4m in the summer from Parma that he wasn't being brought in purely as a deputy for the Welshman. ``I don't see Ryan's injury as giving me an extended chance,'' says Jesper. ``I don't want to be playing just because somebody is injured. I know people might think that's the case but I don't think it is. This season I have played around seven matches with Ryan. He's been in the side when I haven't and I have been playing at times even when he's been fit so it is definitely not a case of him or me.'' ``I don't get angry that people might view my situation like that, just a little frustrated. I can't help it if they think that way. I certainly don't and I don't think the manager does. ``Now I feel it is the time for me to go for it. I have been doing okay but I know I can do better.'' Blomqvist, however, believes he still has some unfinished business to sort out. ``I don't know whether the fans have really taken to me yet because I had a few problems when I first arrived here. ``I was misquoted when I joined United. I had said that I liked it at Parma. That was a fact. I had only just been there 10 months and probably wouldn't have moved if they hadn't changed their trainer. ``But it seemed to come across that I didn't really want to be at Manchester United and I didn't think they were a big club. ``I want to do my best for the club and and give the fans something.'' With skipper Roy Keane and Paul Scholes suspended, United's midfield against the second division cup giant killers will include Blomqvist, David Beckham, Nicky Butt with possibly Jonathan Greening. Fergie may even switch to 4-3-3 so Kevin Keegan's men can feel the full force of the 53-goal three-man strikeforce of Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Subject: Fergie Banking On Fledglings Alex Ferguson must find a new heart for his Manchester United team because he is without three key midfielders for their FA Cup clash with Fulham. Skipper Roy Keane, the very heartbeat of United, is missing through suspension as is Paul Scholes, while Ryan Giggs is sidelined with hamstring trouble. Nicky Butt, Jesper Blomqvist and David Beckham will line up in the middle of the park against Kevin Keegan's Second Division giantkillers and Ferguson is still considering who else to play. One option he is looking at would be to deploy the highly-rated Jonathan Greening on the right and play Beckham in the middle. Ferguson could also let Fulham feel the full force of his 53-goal strikeforce of Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He is weighing up the option of playing all three from the start in an attacking 4-3-3 formation. "With the three midfield players out, that creates a bit of a problem in selecting the side," said the United manager. "Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Jesper Blomqvist will play while Jonathan Greening comes into the picture. I could also go with the three front players so I've got a bit of a decision to make. "It's definitely an option, no question about it, and it is something I'm thinking about."

Subject: DENIS DELIGHTS IN FA CUP GLORY Anyone who thinks Manchester United do not care about the FA Cup should talk to Denis Irwin. The club's commitment to the competition has been questioned because manager Alex Ferguson has fielded weakened sides. The Cup is clearly no longer high on United's list of priorities as they concentrate on winning the Champions' League and the Premiership title. But despite this shift in emphasis the Cup remains special for Irwin. It was Oldham's Cup run in 1990, which ended in semi-final defeat against United, that helped secure his move to Old Trafford. He has not forgotten that nor has he forgotten the unique occasion of Cup Final day at Wembley. The Republic of Ireland defender has twice lifted the Cup with United in the 1990s and he would dearly like to repeat the experience. ''The FA Cup is very special for me,'' he said. ''Obviously the 1989-90 Cup run with Oldham was a good time. We got through to the semi-final where we played United and, even though it seems such a long time ago, I remember we should have won it. We had two very tough games against United and we were very disappointed we didn't make it through to the final - but that's history now. I've since won it twice here, although we've not done so well in recent years.'' Before Irwin and his United team-mates can start dreaming of the Twin Towers, they must beat Fulham in today's fifth-round clash at Old Trafford. Kevin Keegan's side have made a mockery of their Second Division status in the Cup this season and they have accounted for Southampton and Aston Villa on their way to this meeting with United. Their side boasts many players who have played in the Premiership as well as a few internationals such as Kit Symons and Chris Coleman of Wales. Irwin is well aware of their pedigree and he feels they have the potential to make life really difficult for United. ''They are very experienced and a few of them have played in the Premier League,'' he said. ''At the back they've got Kit Symons and Chris Coleman, while they've got Paul Bracewell in midfield. So it's obvious that they've got experience all round. We know it won't be an easy game for us and we're not expecting an easy ride but we realise we've got a chance of getting into the last eight with this home tie and we want to win.'' United go into the game brimming with confidence on the back of their 100 per cent record in 1999. Much of the reason why they have won all seven games they have played this year is down to the goal-scoring form of Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The trio have managed 53 goals already this term and Irwin said: ''The strikers are playing really well at the moment and after the 8-1 win at Nottingham Forest last week the confidence is flowing. Yorkie and Coley have been flying. Yorkie has scored eight or nine in the last five or six games, while Coley's not far behind.'' Ferguson is contemplating playing all three against Fulham because he is without the suspended Roy Keane and Paul Scholes and the injured Ryan Giggs. So much for United not taking the FA Cup seriously.

Subject: Top-quality Cole delivers Kevin Keegan, who introduced Andy Cole to the Premiership to stunning effect at Newcastle United, believes he is facing a much improved striker today than the one he controversially sold to Manchester United. After the pair were reunited for Peter Beardsley's Newcastle testimonial last month, Keegan told Cole he was impressed. 'I said to him, "You're a much better player than you were three years ago". He was a great player when I had him and he's even better now. I admire him as a player and as a character. We signed him when he was 19, he was a boy, and we took him half way across the country and he coped. He's a man now. He has a family and is more mature. 'He's found a perfect partner in Dwight Yorke. I said the Beardsley-Cole goal record together, which was in the 60s, would never be beaten. Maybe Yorke and Cole can do it this year, but hopefully not score against us.' But Keegan prefers to focus on Fulham than worry about Cole, Yorke or free-scoring Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. 'We are not going to go through their players one by one and focus on what they can do. It's really about what we can do when we've got the ball. Maybe they can beat us individually, but we can only beat them if we play as a team.'

Subject: Becks and Victoria in Vogue The March issue of Vogue has a really great article/interview with David Beckham and Victoria. The photographs are beautiful and the piece is interesting though the writer isn't overly sympathetic she isn't too snide either (at least until the very last senence). You get a real sense of how happy the couple are together. And they enjoy their money and celebrity and good luck to them. They have a lovely self-deprecating sense of humour, she describes their new South Manchester home as 'A cross between a poof's house and a whore's house' Apparently Mark Hughes wife helped with the interior design. The baby will be born in London, so yet another cockney red! You don't learn much about the football side of things but you do get an insight into their life together and there are some interesting glimpses (Madonna recognised Becks when they met and Becks was so chuffed he rang his friend Gary...now who would that be?..to tell him) It says that Becks gets 20 grand a week including his sponsorships...could that be right? I thought he would earn at least that from United alone. and as I say there are about 5 or 6 photos which are excellent. Glory Glory Man United :)
