Great pie - terrible ref! Reserves by THE OLD FART This report will reflect the game and will be about twenty words long! It really was that bad! The referee was quite unbelievable even by the normal standard and on this occasion it wasn't just me saying it. He was a disgrace. It was quite obvious from the record to-date that this was always going to be a struggle as Newcastle United are really flying and we, frankly, are struggling just a bit to maintain any consistency. This was always going to be an uphill battle; the referee simply pulled the wheels off our wagon. We conceded the first goal after eight minutes when they carved our defence apart. Good goal, no complaint. Then we showed a bit of the fighting spirit I admire so much about these lads and Cruyff should have done much better after seventeen when he had a very good chance. Healy had nicked a lovely through ball for Wellens to run on to. Wellens was brought down when through (sending-off offence, no question) but the referee played on, only for Cruyff to miss past the left-hand post. Plainly Wellens felt hard done by as seconds later he scythed a lad down on the halfway line and was sent off for a second bookable offence. The galling thing was that his first caution was for nothing more than winning a really good, strong and totally fair tackle - Oh, and for wearing a red shirt! Ten men and hopes, to be honest, out of the window. At half time I had the best meat and potato pie that I've had for any away match this season - it was a belter. Also the Bovril was brewed just as I like it - very strong. I mean BLACK and strong enough to stand a spoon up in. Second half was a mirror of the first. They showed, we fought back a bit, Cruyff did well around the edge of the penalty area only for Healy (who worked tirelessly until he was subbed) to blast the bloody ball over the bar. After fifteen minutes Healy was put through, left flank, broke into the penalty area and was brought down for a penalty (a penalty even MORE obvious than the one when Scholes was brought down at Highbury!) - er, nowt given, play on. Greening lost the plot (I have to say I was sympathetic as I had me moments with referees myself as a player!), said something to the referee and went off! Game over. After thirty-five minutes they scored again, a good goal, well worked across our area. We were never at the races to be honest but the referee was an absolute disgrace. The pie? I bought it in Bolton on me way home. A business commitment in Manchester that day had meant that I had to miss my first Reserve match of the season and thus I ate the pie in our front room watching the match on MUTV! It could have been worse I guess, I could have driven the hundred-plus miles to stand in the freezing cold in Geee-ats-hid, amongst the sad barcodes. For the record the team was...... Taibi, Clegg, Higginbottom, O'Shea, Roche, Cruyff, Wellens, Wilson, Greening, Healy, Twiss (with Notman for Healy after the hour). Keep the Faith, but get us a win for goodness sake! THE OLD FART

United eye Liverpool ace «« Reports suggest that Liverpool reserve team winger Richie Partridge is on the verge of a move to Manchester United. The 19 year old is considered by many to be the best player to have come through Liverpool's youth system since Michael Owen. It would certainly be a huge blow for Gerard Houllier should the Dublin born youngster decide to switch to Old Trafford, especially as The Reds' medical team have recently nursed him back after knee ligament damage.

Paul Scholes Paul Scholes - he scores goals - SCOTLAND 0-2 ENGLAND Ben Lyttleton reporting When England last played Scotland in a competitive fixture, the match at Wembley turned on one decisive minute in which David Seaman saved a penalty and Paul Gascoigne scored that cracker goal. That game, like this one, finished 2-0 to England. For Wembley read Hampden Park, for Gazza read Paul Scholes and for David Seaman read, er, David Seaman. It was the Arsenal goalkeeper who spread himself to somehow deny Kevin Gallacher in a one-on-one from 12 yards out after a defensive mix-up between Paul Ince and Martin Keown. All the Newcastle forward had to do was loft his shot - but instead he chose to toe it, and it rolled relatively tamely towards a grateful Seaman whose leg did the rest. The chance was gone and, maybe - just maybe - so too was Scotland's qualification dream. Seaman's moment came only seconds after Paul Scholes silenced the Hampden Park roar with a finely-taken 21st-minute opener. Running from deep to collect Campbell's intelligent through pass from the right, Scholes chested the ball ideally beyond static Colin Hendry and calmly slipped his under Neil Sullivan. Scholes' hat-trick at Wembley against Poland in Keegan's first game had been vital in helping England reach the play-off stages (barring Luxembourg, the only side they managed to beat) but that contribution looks negligible in comparison to this vital double. The Manchester United midfielder, booked for his exuberant celebration, was boosted by the news post-match that he will not miss the second leg after all. By then, though, he had long ensured his input into the play off would never be forgetten - excepting a Scottish miracle on Wednesday - when he doubled the lead in the 42nd minute, nodding in another Beckham free-kick. The Scots won't look forward to seeing him again. Sullivan had every right to be furious at his defence - not only were they conceding dead-ball situations in dangerous areas, but their marking was by no means as tight as the Scottish stereotype suggests. In fact, they were being positively generous. That Scholes was the shortest man on the pitch tells its own story. Fortune deserted the Scots when Billy Dodds' left-footed curler hit the crossbar a minute later - once again, their best chances were coming straight after they conceded. Then Michael Owen had a chance to kill off the tie when he found himself and Scholes in a two-on-one against Hendry. But the Liverpool forward, who justified his selection with a pacy display that constantly had the Scots back-tracking, miscontrolled for once. England claimed a penalty just after the break, when Scholes wriggled away from Paul Ritchie and looked to have his ankle clipped. Pre-match, all the talk was of the danger that Beckham provides. But it was his United team-mate that was the thorn in the side of the Thistles. By comparison, Hendry was meant to be Scotland's inspiration, their Braveheart; but he turned out to be England's inspiration, a hamstrung defender turned by Owen and twisted by Shearer; it was woefully apparent that his last full game was as far back as September 25. His presence galvanised England more than Scotland - it was a Brown gamble that failed. Hendry's troubles started in the fifth minute, when he was cautioned for clattering into Shearer. He was followed into the referee's notebook by Barry Ferguson, Christian Dailly and Gallacher, who was having an afternoon to forget. He had two sights of goal in frenetic start. He took right-back Burley's long-ball on his chest but before shooting, Keown whipped the ball off his feet. From the corner, David Seaman dropped the ball but Gallacher's unsighted half-volley flew over. With only one goal in eleven games this season (and that was for Blackburn against Portsmouth in the Worthington Cup), Gallacher's luck was out, even though the half-chances kept coming. When the impressive Barry Ferguson, a natural replacement for Paul Lambert, fed him at the near post, he flashed the chance wide. There was equal early pressure in the Scotland half. As early as the second minute, Dailly climbed on Shearer and conceded a free-kick on the right touchline, a dangerous area which was to prove decisive. Another opening in the first deafening twenty minutes fell to Billy Dodds, who shot from a Hutchison through-ball that bisected Adams and Keown. Seaman gathered at the near post, but could only watch as the colossal Campbell cleared a dangerous ball from Burley down the right. England were not without their moments, and had two close efforts of their own. First Owen ran onto Campbell's ball, lobbed it over Hendry with his first touch in a moment of magic reminiscent of Euro 96 (who said Keegan's mob aren't capable of inspirational brilliance?) but his shot was blocked well by Sullivan. The resulting corner saw Beckham find Adams clear at the far post, but his header was wayward. It was his only mistake of the afternoon (and obvious to see why he hasn't scored for 14 months) - beside that, his performance was faultless, as exemplary as you'd expect from the most capped player in the squad. The danger for Keegan in the last half-hour was that England would sit back and be content with their lead. Scotland had the bulk of possession but the chances were not coming. Hutchison and Collins pushed forward, but a Dodds back-header that looped into Seaman's hands, a Hutchison near-post header that flew over, and Dailly's cross-goal header were no real threat. When Redknapp hacked down his Merseyside rival Hutchison 25 yards out - and received a booking - the opportunity was there for Collins to repeat his blockbuster against Arsenal of four weeks ago. But Burley took the free-kick, shooting tamely into the wall. It summed up a frustrating afternoon if you were in tartan. The England rearguard held firm as Scotland's perennial failing, an inability to turn dominance into goals, haunted them again. How Brown must have sighed to see Andy Cole come off the bench to replace Owen - and then sigh in relief as Cole's cutback to Shearer was intercepted by Weir. Brown brought on his Owen equivalent, Mark Burchill, for the last eight minutes. But he could only watch as Hutchison returned Redknapp's foul on the edge of the box. Up stepped Beckham, against his old adversary Sullivan, and the shot was blocked. Beckham, who kept his discipline impressively, would argue that from 50 yards he'd fancy his chances. Quite simply, Scholes' quality finishing was the difference between the sides. But Keegan's faith in Seaman deserves credit, as do the performances of Paul Ince, Campbell and Alan Shearer. But Scholes' display was all the more remarkable in light of the fact that he has been labouring with a hernia problem all season. Keegan must be grateful to his club for postponing the impending operation - his next big job will be making sure Scholes does not go under the knife next summer...

4 Reds shine for Ingerlund - Personal Report Terry Well, it's not often I get excited when Ingerlund play but it's always a pleasure to beat our thistle-arsed, chip-on-the-shoulder, whingeing anglophobic cousins from north o' the border, and if the deed is done with two United goals, then even better. It was men against Jocks with Scholesie playing the starring role with two very well taken goals. For the first, he chested down a long ball from Campbell, drifted past the flourescent-haired Hendry, and slotted the ball past whatshisname. For the second, it was a perfectly weighted free kick from Becks which the carrot-headed one met perfectly to head home past whatshisname. You've just got to luv it when a Red scores for the abuistically challenged Cockneys. Actually, Scholsie almost earned Ingerlund a third at the start of the second half when, after a neat piece of trickery, he was brought down in the area. It looked a pen to me. Phil Neville did enough to earn his place with some adventurous attacking down the left. He got booked for a pretty harmless foul (probably, I think, because he tends to look threateningly homicidal with those staring eyes, protruding chin and permanently open gob. The refs fall for it every time when he's really just a harmless young rascal from Bury.) I thought Becks was quiet today, though that one free kick for Scholesie's second should be enough to satisfy Kelvin Koogan, the man the fans love (to beat with a baseball bat). Becks had a couple of freekicks but produced nothing threatening and most of his corners were pretty harmless too. I suppose the Not-so-Brave-hearts had decided to neutralise the Beckham threat with extra cover for him ... leaving Scholsie with a bit more room to ply his trade. Andy Cole came on after 68 minutes to replace God's Representative on Earth, Saint Michael of Owen, who had faded miserably in the second half. Andy had a couple of chances in his 20 minutes and certainly looked livelier than Owen had done in the second half. With four Reds on, it was a delight to see a series of Becks-Neville-Scholes-Cole passing combinations. Of the non-United players, I liked the look of Sol Campbell, but with an entire team of centre-backs and wannabe centre-backs at OT, I can't see Fergie dipping into his sporran (or, more accurately, I can't see Martin allowing him to). One hilarious moment during the game involved the Guvnor (he of the snarl and flashing eyes) who neatly robbed Keown (yes, you read that right) and laid on a fine ball for a Jock to run on to and nearly score. By some miracle, Seaman saw the danger through his buffon hairdo and managed to block the shot. So, not a bad day at all. The Jocks came in like lions and crept out like lambs. The Cockneys in the crowd got a lesson in Red finishing. The b@st@rds won't be booing any Reds on Wednesday at Wembley, I'm sure. Now let's hope Keano and Dinnis do the job for the Republic against the Turks. And let's all hope, most of all, that no red on international duty picks up an injury. _______________ Terry

There's not many teams can cope with Paul in this form - said Hendry. King Paul By Bob Cass Paul Scholes yesterday set England on their way towards next summer's Euro 2000 finals then vowed: We'll go for more goals at Wembley on Wednesday. Two first-half strikes made England's very own Ginger Spice the Man of the Match at Hampden Park as Kevin Keegan's team beat Scotland 2-0 in the first leg of their European Championship play-off. But the Manchester United man, whose goals silenced the Scottish fans and took his international tally to nine in just 19 appearances, promised: 'We won't go out to defend in the second leg. We'll attack and look to score again.' England did not have to play at their best to over-come the tartan challenge but England coach Keegan was still in euphoric mood. 'We were fantastic,' he said, singling out Scholes for praise. 'Paul has got everything. He's a very impressive player,' he said. 'Because he doesn't talk a lot some people may not notice him. But he believes actions speak louder than words.' Scotland skipper Colin Hendry accepted his team had paid a hefty price for failing to snuff out the Scholes menace. 'I don't think there's many teams can cope with Paul in the form he showed today,' said Hendry. 'It's an uphill task for us now and I feel sorry for our supporters. We'll be trying to give the fans something back at Wembley.' Keegan believed yesterday's display was the best collective performance during his nine-match international reign. 'I look through the team and feel everybody contributed and that hasn't happened in my time,' he said. 'Some of these players don't need a manager - players like Tony Adams, Martin Keown, who was magnificent, and Sol Campbell, who is much more than a defender. 'I've never been happier than I am tonight. It was a superb team performance but it's only half-time. Now we have to finish the job in front of our own crowd but I think we're well capable of doing that. There will be no complacency.' England skipper Alan Shearer refused to be carried away by the victory, insisting: 'We're at the halfway stage and we have to make sure that we finish the job on Wednesday.' Scotland coach Craig Brown believed the scoreline did not reflect his team's efforts. 'The result flattered England,' he said. 'Sloppy defending cost us two goals. We know we're still in the match. If we get an early goal at Wembley, it will open it all up. 'We have showed we are capable of scoring away from home so we'll go there on Wednesday believing we can come out on top. But it will be very difficult.'
