SIR Alex Ferguson! Congrats from Manchester United Support All Over the World!"

Subject: My Barcelona Diary Part 2 (Very long) "P.J. Thum" Hi all, After a bit of travelling around and visiting relatives I'm back in hot and humid Singapore. I already wish I were back in Boston! Anyway, as promised from the last instalment of my tell-all diary :) ..... - sightseeing (including a movie of a hilarious recital of "Ten Bayern Fans" to the tune of "Ten bottles of beer on the wall" while we were a couple hundred feet in the air in a tower at La Segrada Familia cathedral) - my visit to the Erotica Museum (as recommended by Linda and the Sausage Man) - Taking over the entire La Rambla: a sea of Red! (beer! women! song!) Waking up on day 2, Tuesday, I announced my resolution to do some sight seeing while I could. Mark and Peter both agreed with me, and we decided to go visit the La Segrada Familia which was near the hotel and while we were at it check out the Michael Collins Pub which was next to the Cathedral. The La Segrada Familia is a huge cathedral that the Spaniards have been building since the mid nineteenth century, and it is nowhere near completion. It has a very interesting history, and has some incredible architecture. These pictures off the facade illustrate what I mean: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201155%20La%20Segrad a%20Familia.jpg http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201155%20Steeples.jp g and here's a picture of Mark and Peter in front of one side of the building which depicts a nativity scene: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201229%20Mark%20and% 20Peter.jpg After mucking about the grounds we decided to start climbing the towers (see "steeples.jpg", above). The insides were narrow and dark and had circular staircases going round and round. http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201254%20going%20rou nd%20and%20round%20up%20the%20stairs.jpg After climbing a while we came to a balcony that looked out over the city. As we found out, this view is relatively low compared to what we would experience later: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201259%20view%20to%2 0the%20horizon%20from%20balcony.jpg As Mark and I were both afraid of heights I have to congratulate him unflinchingly on going all the way to top: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201302%20Mark%20brav ely%20looks%20down.jpg We kept climbing up and up inside the towers: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201304%20Mark%20wave s%20from%20inside.jpg The view kept getting better (and scarier): http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201312%20view%20of%2 0Barcelona.jpg Eventually we were almost level with the other set of spires: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201315%20the%20tower s%20again.jpg and here we are finally (note the time on the photo- twenty five minutes later) at the top: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201320%20at%20the%20 very%20top.jpg Mark keeps a firm grip- I think it was his fear of heights. Wouldn't let go. And this is the view from the top: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201321%20view%20from %20the%20top.jpg Going down, Mark and Peter started a song about "Ten Bayern Fans, standing on the wall" to the tune of "Ten Green Bottles" which echoed around the tower. A Bayern fan later commented to us that he heard the song loud and clear from further down the tower- not the best thing to hear I think :) Movies: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201325%20Bayern%20fa ns%20standing%20on%20the%20wall%20part%201.mpg http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201326%20Bayern%20fa ns%20standing%20on%20the%20wall%20part%202.mpg Some interesting photographs of the spiral staircase: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201339%20spiral%20st aircase%202.jpg http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201340%20PJ%20sticks %20his%20head%20out%202%20without%20flash.jpg From La Segrade Familia we dropped by Michael Collins, which was closed, so we decided to stroll off to Placa Catalunya and the Hard Rock Cafe. Along the way, we encountered this nice lady with a nice ass who was walking her dog. Watch Mark's left hand as he "makes his move": http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201410%20Mark%20make s%20his%20move%20-%20look%20at%20his%20left%20hand.jpg Near Placa Catalunya we spotted an interesting store which had clearly decided to name itself after the home of the greatest football team in the world: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201422%20Manchester% 20is%20everywhere!.jpg After a rendezvous with Barry and Co at the Hard Rock, I decided to go off and do some further sight seeing. Strolling down the pleasant tree lined boulevard of La Rambla, the view was somewhat marred by the vast expanse of flesh on display: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201511%20Bayern%20fa ns%20drink.jpg Further down, on my left, this small, slightly concealed entrance caught my eye: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201514%20the%20Museu m%20of%20Erotica.jpg Yes, it was the infamous Museum of Erotica. After a quick glance around to ensure that no one was looking, I slipped in. They even had a student discount! How about that! WARNING: The next few paragraphs may be unfit for reading by anyone below the age of 18. You have been warned. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I didn't take many pictures in there. I was too busy laughing and reading the exhibits. they even had two specialised TV rooms: the first, a continuous loop of the Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee video (I wanted to take a picture of that, but there was this Japanese couple in three who were transfixed by the screen and I decided they probably wouldn't like their faces shown all over the world); and the second, a loop of early silent movie porn, complete with cheesy music. By far my favourite exhibit, however, was this fairground ride: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201518%20a%20fun%20f illed%20ride.jpg Unfortunately, there was a prominent sign saying "No touching or riding". However, it was operational and for a mere 100 pesetas too! This movie you HAVE to see: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201521%20movie%20of% 20a%20fun%20filled%20ride.mpg Among the other exhibits were this interesting chair: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201524%20stimulus%20 chair%20complete%20with%20spair%20rubber%20dildo.jpg It came with not only the metal dildo affixed the chair, but also a larger flesh coloured rubber one on a chain! How convenient! There was also a bank of telephones that were connected to erotic phone lines in various languages. This is me listening to the English-language one. The camera angle's a bit strained because I couldn't find anyone to hold the camera for me, and I couldn't very well interrupt the Japanese couple now could I? http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201531%20PJ%20tries% 20talking%20on%20the%20%20erotic%20telephone.jpg Last but not least, my favourite photo, this is me casually leaning against a large wooden sculpture: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201536%20PJ%20casual ly%20poses.jpg (Those of you under 18 can feel free to join us again now.) After this enlightening tour I went off and went around the Gothic Quarter, heart of old Barcelona. There's very little Red content here, so I'll skip these pictures, but you can always go look at them at http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/ if you want to. United flags were hung everywhere: http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201540%20Red%20flags %20everywhere.jpg http://natatorium.simplenet.com/photos/Barcelona/250599%201727%20Banner%20in %20the%20streets%20of%20Barcelona.jpg After my tour, I headed off to the Barri Chinos (Chinese Quarter), home to drugs and prostitutes, to look for Mark and Peter. It's not what you're thinking- The Quiet Man, an excellent Irish Pub, is also located here. As if such upstanding citizens as them would be involved in such filth *cough*. List Member: "but PJ, you went to the Erotica Museum, didn't you? Isn't that the same thing?" PJ: "No, that's different. when you hang it on a wall in sterile surroundings, provide commentary on neat little plaques and charge admission, that's culture and art." After a few drinks at The Quiet Man, where I recharged my camera battery (hence no pictures of the activities there), we went back to La Rambla and joined in with the massing horde of Reds there in song. As the afternoon then evening then night wore on, the street got filled with more and more Reds, singing like crazy.

Subject: SUITS YOU SIR (Ferguson Tribute) SUITS YOU SIR Saturday, June 12, 1999 00:01 Born during a broken bottle fight outside a Glasgow pub during the Second World War, it took Alex Ferguson 58 years to battle his way to the top of European football. As a young boy, Alex grew to love the beautiful game in the streets of his native Govan, a working-class district of Glasgow in Scotland, street-brawling. He was inspired by the heroes up the road who wore the blue shirt of Rangers, and would sometimes climb over the pub wall to see them in action. Those days, up to 40 or 50 boys would join in a kickabout on the cobbled streets where he grew up, often without a ball. Later, after turning out for Dunfermline and St Johnstone, he would play for the Gers himself. "I will fight to score goals for Rangers," he said, upon signing in blood for the Ibrox club on 1 August 1967. Perhaps he kept his promise too literally. Although he netted 35 times in 67 League matches for Rangers, he was all too frequently in trouble with the referee, and had more than his fair share of early baths, 33 in one season. This was Fiery Fergie, the player, dirty but clean too.. The goalscoring continued with spells at Falkirk, where he first began coaching, Ayr United, and finally East Stirling, who appointed him their player-manager in 1974. By the time he joined St Mirren, Ferguson was one hundred-and-ten per cent a football manager, and every bit as fiery off the field as he was on it! On one infamous day, he sacked eight players, but this ruthless streak soon paid dividends. The 3 remaining went on a unbeaten run of 21 games, narrowly missing out on promotion. In 1976, St Mirren won Scotland's First Division Championship, and were promoted to the top flight. It was Fergie's first managerial triumph, and his skills did not go unnoticed. In 1980, he was asked to take charge of Aberdeen. After finding the remote Scottish outpost on a map, he decided to try and find it. 6 months later he arrived at Pittodrie, with Rab C Nesbitt as his assistant. You could say the rest is history, but to gloss over the Pittodrie period would be a gross injustice. What Alex Ferguson achieved with Aberdeen was nothing short of unbelievable, from winning the Scottish League and Cup Double to beating one of the world's biggest clubs to lift the European Jock Winners' Cup. Real Madrid must have thought they would stroll the final of that competition in 1983, but they reckoned without the indomitable spirit of the Dons. Dressed in Kilts, and swigging cans of Irn Bru, Aberdeen won 2-1 on an incredible night for Scottish football and spirit consumption. Now, with hindsight, we can consider that match a model for this year's Nou Camp classic, when Fergie's current team swept to the European Cup on a similar tide of passion and belief. Even UEFA have adopted his personal mehod of timekeeping, and it was clear when the crazed Italian referee acknowledged Fergies hand signals at the Nou Camp to show that at least 2 minutes should be added on. In the summer of 1986, Alex Ferguson took Scotland to the World Cup Finals as a temporary manager. His predecessor, the great Jock Stein, had died suddenly in the build-up, leaving the nation in mourning. His first decision was to leave Liverpool favourite Alan Hansen out of the squad. Coolly and calmly, he explained that, he had chosen the best 22 for the job in hand, and that there was to be no favouritism. Only 15 of the squad actually were playing for Aberdeen, and of the classy Hansen, he said "And I don't like Scousers anyway" With international experience and a winning pedigree, Fergie was seen as the ideal man for the Manchester United hot-seat when Ron Atkinson was sacked from his post as United Drinking and Social Club manager. Skipper Bryan Robson recalls the impact he had on the club. "The gaffer cut out a lot of the boozing, especially on the way to the ground on a match-day. He sold Whiteside and McGrath, and that left me without a lift home from the pub. Then he confiscated my car keys! But, in the long run, it gave me 8 more years in the game and saved me from a Liver Transplant" On 7 November 1986, Alex was installed at Old Trafford and after four years of building work, not least in United's youth and scouting systems, Fergie began to bring home the bounty. He brought Mark Hughes back from kicking bemused Spaniards, purchased Diarist and goalscorer Brian McClair, and relieved Manchester City of Ryan Giggs, and thus saved the lad from a traumatic career in the lower divisions. He started with the FA Cup in 1990 and has rarely looked back since. A brilliant and dazzling solo run and shot from the gifted full-back and Tameside pin-up Lee Martin secured Fergie's first trophy at Old Trafford. The treble in 1998-99 was the icing on the cake, completing this breathtaking roll of honour for United during the managerial reign of Sir Alex Ferguson: European Cup: 1999 League Championship: 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999 European Cup Winners' Cup: 1991 FA Cup: 1990, 1994, 1996, 1999 League Cup: 1992 European Super Cup: 1991 Barred from Dog & Partridge Pub: 1987,1988, 1989,1995 FA Charity Shield: 1990, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997. Questioned about 'disappearance' of Ralph Milne: 1991 Got rid of Jim Leighton: 1992 Sold Lee Sharpe for a fortune: 1996 "Paul Hinson"

Subject: MU Book - Always in the running After seeing a few posts about MU books I thought I'd tell you about an excellent book I read recently. It was written by Jim White (used to be on BBC2's Late Review) and call "Always in the running". Jim is a thirty something like myself and started going to United matches in the early 70's and this is his United Dream team based on the players that have meant the most to him since he started watching United. The team is Schmeichel, Buchan, Bruce, McGrath, Morgan, Hill, Robson, Giggs, Whiteside, Cantona and Hughes. As you can see it's not your conventional team of 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 (he has 3 central defenders!) as I say, it just the 11 players + manager (Fergie) which he has enjoyed since 1971 or so. There is a chapter about each player and the manager and is very witty and recalls some great moments. The reason I enjoyed it so much is that I started following United around the same time and can relate/remember most of the incidents referred to in the book and it brings back some great memories. Anyone who has watched United over the last 3 decades will enjoy this. Cheers, Philip Mulligan, Dublin, Ireland. email:philip.mulligan@mail.esb.ie

Subject: Toyko Match - Nov 99 - Links If anyone is thinking about the match in Tokyo in November I came across a useful link. The British Embassy Football club in Tokyo has a website http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Slope/2400/ and one of the guys Sid Lloyd sid@twics.com was most helpful. It seems that we do not need a visa to get in but the cops can lock you up for two weeks, no lawyer, no judge , no charge so better behave. Does anyone know how to get a ticket for this match ?

Subject: Web site re Oz tour The Rivkin Group, who are sponsoring the Reds' tour Down Under, have an embryonic web site at - http://www.manutd-oztour.com/index.htm Not much there yet, but it should build in the next week or two. Anyone else going to Sydney? BTW, Bozzo (a,/ie/oo/nich) had little to do in the FIFA v Oz game here the other night, apart from pull the ball out of the net in the ninth minute following some slack marking at a corner. He was subbed of at half time. Next appearance in the tour games. Are United still playing in Asia before Oz? Cheers, David Marshall Brisbane, Australia.
