Daily RED Trivia  Thurs 17th June 1999:

 Graeme Hogg born in Aberdeen. After playing in the 1982 Youth Cup Final,
 Hogg made his senior debut in the FA Cup at Bournemouth in January 1984, and 
 played in the 1985 Charity Shield against Everton, missing out on the 1985 FA Cup
 through injury. Between 1984-88 the rugged Centre-half  made 109  appearances 
 and scored 1 goal. He later played for Postmouth and Heart of Midlothian.

Barry Daily Comment:

Latest from OT: the treble Video is available in the megastore.
Speculation that players are coming and going DO NOT BELIEVE the stories.
Only David May may be true to Scotland but i doubt it as Ronny and
Henning are a little injury prone so we need back up with Wes and David!

Subject: Montenegro bid D-Day United should find out in the next 24 hours whether their reported £3.5 million bid for Argentinian playmaker Daniel Montenegro has been successful. The 20-year-old star's club Huracan held a board meeting last night to discuss their financial plight and three bids for players which could solve their problems. United are refusing to confirm any official interest in Montenegro - the player fast turning out to be the star of this summer's Toulon tournament. Huracan confirmed yesterday they had received a 5.5 million dollar bid from a foreign party, thought to be United. However, they may not have to sell with two other bids for different players on the table from Marseille and a Portuguese club. Huracan are virtual certainties for relegation and may feel there is little point in keeping Montenegro who has played most of this last season with the Argentina Under-20 and Under-21 squads. Dubbed "The new Maradona", he is blatantly not in the same class but has shown a marked improvement in his game during the past couple of months.

Subject: PLAYER OF THE SEASON 1998/99 After winning three magnificent trophies more than the mighty Arsenal, who were the London medias 'Team to take over the next 10 years' Manchester United's players can rest at ease this summer. Well, almost at ease. Even though they all played their part in winning the Premiership, FA Cup and European Cup, there will be one nagging doubt at the backs of their minds as they recline by swimming pools across the Continent. Did they cancel the Papers and the Milk? Each player will wonder, looking back, if they did enough to impress the club's global mass of envious haters. When it comes to the crunch, were they really at the peak of their powers? And did they stand out from the crowd in Alex Ferguson's multi-talented squad? This goes right down from that piddling cup won in the Nou Camp, right up to the much-coveted and highly-ranked Manchester Senior Cup, regarded as the jewel in the United Museum's crown. Only you can decide whether those players deserve another night of debauchery on their holiday, in recognition of their efforts during 1998/99. It's up to you to attempt the possible and single out just one individual star, the man in a red shirt (or Goblin-green in the case of Peter Schmeichel) who deserves our Player of the Season award. Those of you familiar with the website's polls will know that a shortlist is drawn up for our Man of the Match and Player of the Month prizes, and then we give it to the bloke we reckon should get it anyway. Even though your vote will be totally disregarded, we asked keen United fan Arsene Wenger to give us pointers to help make your choice:..................... David Beckham: Shamed by Sending off in the 1998 World Cup. Came home to abuse from all opposing fans. Failed to score a goal for about 3 months. Fathered a child out of wedlock. Shocking hair-style. Had a not-bad season I suppose. Andy Cole: Was left in the cold whilst Solskjaer was paired with Yorke in September. Made the scandal sheets with a young lady and his mate in the number 19 shirt. Did not score for England, or in the two big Finals. Miscued a lucky winner to seal the title for United. I can see why George Graham let him go in 1991. Ryan Giggs: Spent a lot of the season in the physios room. Had a rare outing for Wales. Oh, and netted a so-so goal in the FA Cup Semi at Villa Park. But our lads were shattered. And it did provoke a nasty and outrageous pitch invasion at the end, that should have had them disqualified. Roy Keane: Red-carded (rightly) against us. Yellow carded and missed the biggest game of their campaign. Oh, and hobbled off in the FA Cup Final. Clearly a disastrous season for the United skipper. Not a patch on Vieira. Peter Schmeichel: Scandalously left the club, unlike my keeper who will be a Gunner until he is 50. Bergkamps penalty flukily hit him and denied us another trip to Wembley. I am not a bad loser, honestly! When he held up that European Cup, I said to Petit, that could have been you if you hadn't been sent off so often, you French fool! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Clearly not wanted by his manager, and should come to Highbury and play for a big club. With his good fortune (eg at the Nou Camp) he could be our Ian Wright of the new Millenium. Don't know about 4 in 10 minutes, 1 in 90 will do, my Jurassic Back-Four will do the rest. Jaap Stam: We made a mug of him at Wembley in the Charity Shield. I said to Alex, I wouldn't swap him for Steve Bould! Then he collects all those medals. Football baffles me sometimes. Dwight Yorke: Could have signed him myself, but his smile is not the kind of thing we like at Highbury. Hardly scored at all in April or May, proving my judgement to be sound. Must ask him about making smutty videos though, I may have a few ideas for the coming months....... You'll only get one chance to pick your Player of the Season so please, vote carefully! The polls can be found throughout someone else's site from today.

Subject: Keane battle By Peter Ferguson Roy Keane is ready to drive a bargain as hard as one of his tackles in his contract talks at Manchester United. While United would like the football world to think the fiery Republic of Ireland midfielder is on the verge of agreeing a new deal, Soccernet understands there has been just one meeting between the sides. His agent, Michael Kennedy, said last night: 'There is a long way to go.' That will be a sobering thought for those fresh - or otherwise - from celebrating the mother of all seasons. Old Trafford might still be basking in the warm glow of an historic Treble, crowned by the European Cup triumph in Barcelona. But Keane's absence from the heart of the team in the 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich, in a display pedestrian until the last two magical minutes, coldly highlighted his immense value to the club. Whether or not that value stretches to the £2million-a- year which United's inspirational captain is seeking in order to sign a contract that would tie him to Old Trafford for his peak years is another matter. It is unthinkable that United, having become the most successful club in the world as well as the richest, could allow their skipper to jump ship, as he will be eligible to do in a year under the Bosman ruling. Yet, the money men who pull the purse strings at the grand old club will have blinked and pondered at the notion that Lazio are willing to shell out £20m for one player, colossus or not. United once turned down bids of £15m for the still-emerging Ryan Giggs but, since then, the corporate grip has tightened as a result of the club's Stock Market flotation back in 1991. Now the Italians are looking hard at the player who, above all others, makes United tick and cash has become almost as important - some would claim more important - as success on Old Trafford's field of dreams. United manager Alex Ferguson, who correctly earmarked Keane as Bryan Robson's natural successor, would choke on his holiday soft drinks in the south of France at the thought of losing Keane. But his 26-year-old captain, United's then-record signing at £3.75m from Nottingham Forest in 1993, knows his own worth. He rejected far better terms from Blackburn to join United but by the same token became the club's first £1m-a-year earner and believes he can now command £40,000 a week at the peak of his powers. United's newly-knighted manager, with a lucrative deal of his own to take him to retirement, well knows that Keane's demands will raise eyebrows and purse lips among the plc directors, who fear a queue would form should they disturb the balance of pay scales. But Keane's loss would be such a body-blow that Ferguson will back him to the hilt for a compromise £10,000-a-week rise on his £25,000-a-week wages in return for his leadership and drive on the pitch. Ferguson, who could hardly contemplate trying to replace Keane adequately, has insisted: 'Roy will be staying at United. Negotiations have almost reached a settlement and I'm confident a new contract will be sorted out in the next couple of weeks.' But Kennedy and United's chief negotiator, lawyer and Old Trafford plc director Maurice Watkins, have only just begun the delicate process of deciding Keane's future. Talks continue this week and Kennedy said: 'It's Roy's wish to stay at United if at all possible. We all look forward to a fruitful conclusion.' As for Ferguson, Labour councillors in Glasgow yesterday agreed to offer him the freedom of his native city. Charles Gordon, leader of the council, said: 'The move recognises one of the great football managers in Europe. We are proud to honour him in Glasgow. 'He is someone of considerable stature, who has made a contribution to the world.' The last to be awarded the freedom of the city was Nelson Mandela. Ferguson, 57, was born in the district of Govan. In March, he was awarded the freedom of Aberdeen, who he led to a European Cup-winners' Cup triumph.

Construction has already begun! I don't know of a picture of the finished stadium though. I enclose the official announcment from last year........ OFFICIAL EXPANSION PRESS RELEASE Monday, September 07, 1998 09:51 Manchester United have announced plans that would see Old Trafford expanded, and become a 67,400 seater stadium. This would see Old Trafford become the biggest club stadium in Britain by some way. Below is the official press statement. "Manchester United announces that it has today submitted an application for planning permission to Trafford Metropolitan Council to extend the stadium at Old Trafford. Manchester United has sold out every home game in recent years and the proposal will result in an increase in capacity of 12,400 seats from the present figure of 55,000 to 67,400. It is planned to extend the East and West Stands of the stadium to provide this additional seating. The board of Manchester United currently anticipates that should the requisite approval of shareholders be obtained at the Annual General Meeting in November and planning consent be obtained before the end of the year, work would commence to the East Stand in May 1999, following the end of the 1998/99 season. The West Stand programme of works would begin at the end of the 1999/2000 season, and be finished for the start of the 2001/02 season. The construction work is being planned to ensure that disruption is minimised and that the existing stadium capacity will not be reduced during the timespan of the project. In addition to the increase in seating capacity, the East Stand extension will include offices, allowing the Company to bring its administration functions together in one location, and a new Megastore with a sales area of 1,280 sq.m.(13,800 sq.ft.). This will replace the existing Megastore, Superstore and Match day store which have a combined sales area of 758 sq.m.(8,160 sq.ft.). The directors of Manchester United estimate that the cost of the expansion outlined above will amount to approximately £30 million. It is the board's intention to finance the project from its own resources and from existing bank facilities."

          If ever they are playing in your town
          You must get to that football ground
          Take a lesson come to see
          Football taught by Matt Busby
          Manchester, Manchester United
          A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
          They deserve to be knighted
