Subject: "Getting Better All The Time" - REDS in Barce Epic Pt: 5/7 "Barce Beat - THE MATCH" OK FOLKS - SIT DOWN - PRINT THIS OUT AND RE-LIVE THE FINAL! :)))) Pt 5/7 Wednesday 26th May THE MATCH "REDS Are Going To Barcelona" Pt 5/7 by Barry Leeming Dateline Wed 26th May European Cup Final Day [19.00-2300 hrs] Clambering up to the great heights of NOU CAMP, no problem with the physical side, as I came out onto the terracing, I have to say the site took my breath away. A feeling of greatness took over, the fact that I was there could not have been exchanged with any other location on earth at this precise moment in time!!!! I found my excellent seat in Row 1 Seat 2 right plum in the middle of the scoreboard, 3rd tier UNITED end. I looked down beneth where I was sitting onto the 2nd tier to see all the UNITED reserves in smart MUFC suits sitting just below and lapping up the atmosphere. My phone rang, it was Stephen and my son Michael who could now see me from their position higher up the terrace! I sat down with complete strangers and chatted about the coming RED experience whilst soaking up the HOT Nou Camp atmosphere. The line up seemed unnatural to me with Giggs on right and Becks placed in the middle? Many agreed! Still, Alex is the master right?? On the bench Teddy, Ole, David May and Wes Brown looked like names who could make their mark? Jonathen Greening a new RED and now involved in a ECFINAL, an absolute fairy tale. The show on the pitch, the colourful girls, the music, all these happenings added to a fine CLF atmosphere and now we were ready for the football! ............... KICK OFF In the 6th minute Jancker was brought down just outside the area by Ronnie and even with five REDS in wall + a Bayern screener, Basler managed his 4th goal in 9 ECL matches. From my view point looking down Peter did not have the left corner covered and sure enough the ball sneaked in [we needed a man covering this corner]. Still, early days and only 0-1. Match continued and my memories of the first half are 1 Alex already off the bench urging the team on! 2 Becks marvellous all round play 3 Cole fighting in the box with 3 to 4 Germans, from a Phil Neville long throw, ball JUST WIDE! 4 German unlawfull heavy tackles on Beckham, nothing given by Italien ref. 5 Butt "NOT" too commanding in the middle [we needed Roy as we all know]. 6 Short corners a waste?? [Becks long corners SIMPLY THE BEST] 7 Stam's GREAT covering :)) 8 Cole/Yorke often marked out of game by 2 close Bayern defenders at a time! 9 Schmeichel's excellent, safe, play, marred only by the uncovered goal [scored in Schmikes corner]. 10 Generally our play lacked the usual extreme power but on the other hand we had tried our best. I believe stats say there was 57% RED Possession in first half? Half time, I went up for pint of water and a "was it a sausage?" hehe Atmosphere a little dampened by the scoreline, mobile phones out of commission, no lines, so was unable to call home. Sat and waited for the expected RED avalanche? 2nd HALF No changes Giggs still on right?? I had expected Teddy at this point. Still again we have to believe in Alex. UNITED were now to attack towards OUR end :)))) Watching closely I now hoped for some fire up front!! Before those final few heavenly minutes here are my memories 1 More pressure, more RED corners :)) 2 Andy and Dwight not happy with the Bayern negative play they became more and more irritated. 3 Cole taken out, still no free kick ???? 4 Two German's take out Giggs on the run, Effenberg deservedly BOOKED .... at last!! 5 Waiting for the expected changes I was relieved to see Teddy on for Blomqvist 65mins. Teddy even held his hand up to wait for the imminent corner to be taken as he ran on! 6 Giggs went left now Becks out right, very good news I thought, with 20 mins left! 7 Andy overhead kick, danger?? 8 Schmikes great save from running lob. 9 Bayern seemed to pick up & then looked certain to score, ... lob beat Peter & hit the post! 10 Butt across face of goal nobody there to knock it in! 11 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on for Andy as expected 15mins to go, Barry comment "He will score" 12 1st corner Solskjaer heads ON TARGET! Great stuff Ole we needed that! 13 Peter saves again, good keeping & kept us in the match, only 10 mins left 14 Bayern looked certain to score hit the bar with overead kick, still 0-1 we were lucky :) phew!!!! 15 5mins to go Bayern fans celebrating "their win??" 16 UNITED pressure Sols back heeled to Sheringham - shoots - saved by goalkeeper. 17 MORE RED PRESSURE the warning signs were there :)))) 18 Sols heads on target AGAIN - saved! *** OLE & TEDDY combined had made the difference & it showed *** 19 Bayern start changing players to waste time 20 Beckham goes through the pack in the penalty area TREMENDOUS STRONG PLAY, how does he do it??? - it is now the 89/90th minute............ I remember distinctly looking up at that dreadfull scoreboard which read in those irritating THICK LETTERS Manchester United 0 - 1 Bayern Munchen 0.44 MINS **I commented to the guy on my left that there was now 1 min left and we were losing to that daft early goal! I never saw the time on that scoreboard again but I reckon it was say 30-40 secs after "that comment" that all hell broke loose ....... ::: THAT CORNER ::: PETER COMING UP ::: PETER SEEMINGLY GETTING A TOUCH ::: GIGGS TO TEDDY :::: :::: GGGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL :::: We all danced with complete strangers hugging, jumping and screaming!! I remember feeling in my heart that we would now go on to win the ECL but little was I to know HOW we would do it! All I know is we were still celebrating 70 secs later WHEN BEDLEM SHOOK 3RD TIER AND NOU CAMP 60,000 REDS just exploded. I saw the attack and the corner, BUT I HAD NO IDEA WHO HAD SCORED AND NEITHER DID ANYONE ELSE THAT I ASKED DURING THE CELEBRATION!!!!!!! 2-1!!!!! We were ahead, we soon heard that it was OLE through the singing, we didn't care who it was, the fact of life was that the scoreline was now Manchester United 2-1 Bayern Munich. This was not only unbelievable it just seemed quite impossible!!! We screamed and sang more and more and more. Never EVER will I forget it, I know this one in a lifetime experience will neverever be repeated! ** CELEBRATION ** I think we finished celebrating 40-60 mins later, there were some fantastic moments all the players dancing with the cup, Teddy Sheringham's jig, the crowd calling Keano and Scholsie, they appeared of course! We cheered and sang as each United player lifted the cup...... whhhhhoooooooooooo!!!!! increasing crescendo's The "new baked" song started " Who put the ball in the German's net Who put the ball in the German's net Who put the ball in the German's net Ole Gunnar Solskjaer! " - ANYONE WHO WAS THERE WILL NEVER EVER FORGET THIS NIGHT - This was a new chapter in the fantastic History Of Manchester United Football club More...... Outside the ground, I have no idea of the time, I was to meet up with my group at a pre-arranged point. Crossing outside the ground diagonally, I spotted Dr Mark, shirtless Paul Busby and Dr Dave Hitt crosssing in the opposite direction! They saw me as I called out, we made a quick huddle jumping up and down and shouting. This was just another fleeting moment to remember as we then went off in our intended directions! I then met up with Stephen and Michael and we proceeded to the *Takin Over Of Barcelona!* .....

Subject: 'Barcelona' by Bert
Click on pic for more celebration in Manchester!" My trip to Barcelonaı started as the final whistle sounded in Turin. The lounge of the Douglas Hotel in Victoria, B.C. exploded into activity. Cel phones were popping and travel arrangements were being made. Me? I immediately phoned up my trusty teacher on call, Colleen, to make an early booking for May 26th. Next, the hairdresser down the stret for a 10.00 appointment. You see you folk donıt understand that on the morning of a vital game, it is my haircut that makes all the difference. Liverpool FA Cup, Inter Milan and Juventus second legs. Proof is the losses by my not haircutting eg. Dortmund or Monaco second legs. The days drag by, sleep becoming increasingly disturbed. Work becomes a dream, interefering with my daily scouring of Barry Leemingıs wonderful magazine. Finally I am walking down my Warwick Roadı, colours flying, singing away to the bemusement of our good, though conservative, citizens. Into the dark, though no longer smoky, lounge; nerves a jangle. Scarf up on the picture frame; eye the 3 Bayern fans at the front with suspicion and settle in the dark, although the lights are on, and sure enough donıt get switched off until 10 minutes into the game. The fifth bar manager this year could care less, but sod him! About 40 folk show up. Where is Bill that lovely man from Eccles? Missed I would say. As is Fish, and Jo from long ago now. A quick hello to Tony who is no longer with us, but a true Red who must be kicking himself if he can. Absent friends. Suddenly there is a TV camera; we are such an oddity weıre going to make the evening news. Bright lights, and grab for some shades and duck, as does my neighbour; I donıt really want my employer, responsible for the morals of to-days youth, seeing where my dentist is now do I? Cameraman grins, shoots footage assuring us he will edit as necessary. Itıs quite interesting wearing shades so I keep them on, but the screen does get a bit dim. As the kick off occurs cameraman is still interviewing. Mates briefly become talking heads! Shut up Peter, and switch that damn light off! What a match. When Yorke misses the sitter in the 86th. minute or something I think we are doomed, and begin to bolster myself for yet another round in the legendary and eternal quest. Pandemonium! Goal!! Weıll get them now for sure. Bring on overtime, no problem! Suddenly, complete and marvellous mad mayhem!!!!!! OLE! OLE! The pub just explodes in a flailing of arms and bodies leaping and yelling and screaming, an incohate mass of wild abandon! Brilliant. Beaming faces, milling of friends and strangers, hugs, grins, handshakes, CHAMPIONS. Sing On! Cameraman returns and for the next half hour itıs chanting and singing and watching the EUROPEAN CUP in the hands of the CHAMPIONS!!! Wembley 1968! Well not quite, but oh it was grand. Munich, Busbyıs birthday, Ferguson, Schmeichel, Beckham, Sheringham, Solksjaer, it just had to be. Finally, out into the sunny Victorian street where life continues as if we werenıt at war, as if hockey were the true sport. Get home and thereıs a message from Margaret, laughing and wishing I could go to the pub downtown Manchester with her. The curse of the emigrant. Over the next few days at work I download the pics and articles and re-fill my hallway bulletin board, and steal space on others. Joy. I e - mail Neil Campbell, editor of the sports page of the Globe and Mailı Canadaıs leading national paper with whom I have been bickering all year. He would publish a Monday ranking of the top 20 teams in Europe as determined by some rubbish group of journalists and computers or something. Even when United were in the semi finals they had them placed eigth or something equally as stupid. Earlier in the year they didnıt even make the top 20! Ridiculous. I am going to frame the ranking that shows them #1. I am not surprised, despite all assurances, to be waiting still. Another ABU. Onwards! United Forever. CHAMPIONS!!!!!!! By Bert in Victoria.
Subject: PALMEIRAS BOOK WORLD TITLE SHOWDOWN WITH MANCHESTER UNITED Treble winners Manchester United will face Brazilian outfit Palmeiras in Tokyo in the Intercontinental Cup final in November which will decide who is crowned world club champion. The Sao Paulo-based team beat Colombian side Deportivo Cali in the Copa Libertadores when they won a penalty shoot-out 4-3 after the second-leg finished 2-1 in their favour. Whoever wins the Intercontinental cup final will however only hold the accolade of world club champion for two months as FIFA is staging its inaugural eight-team World Club Championship in Brazil in January. With United saying they are unlikely to attend that tournament it would appear to leave Palmeiras, on home soil, as favourites for that event. Palmeiras Chairman Ronaldo Biggsia is naturally excited about his club facing the English and European Champions. "Mucho medioso attendis dos fixturo, ella Inglisi United de Manchester massivo iene Rio. Mucho fanaticos puero rouge et blanco bandanas speedo dos boulevardos celebraccio dos cups treblio par May.

Subject: Guardian Rumours Unlimited Paul MacInnes guides you through today's back-page transfer talk Wednesday June 16, 1999 Tennis, cricket and even horse racing. All of these sports sought to shove football off the back pages this morning but, no matter how hard they tried, they couldn't succeed in quashing the transfer rumour. Abandoning its usual in-depth coverage of Royal Ascot, the Daily Star offers two spurious stories on its back page, titled 'Italian Job 1' and 'Italian Job 2'. Job 1 concerns an approach by Inter Milan for Manchester United's Nicky Butt. The Star suggests that Inter would be willing to pay £7m for a player who struggled to earn a place in United's first team last season. Job 2 concerns that old rumour chestnut, the transfer of Michael Owen to Lazio. As reported yesterday, the Italian giants are looking to buy Arsenal's Nicolas Anelka as a replacement for the recently departed Christian Vieri. But if their efforts fail, the Star believes they'll be in for Owen like a £24m-shot. In the Daily Mail's big football story this morning, the word 'job' fails to appear, but 'Italian' makes more than one appearance. The Mail reports that, in a continued bid to prise Nicola Ventola away from Inter, Chelsea are prepared to include Roberto Di Matteo in a swap package. Ventola has already turned down a move to West London but Gianluca Vialli is "willing to spend whatever it takes" to secure the services of the 21-year-old. If Di Matteo does leave, the Mail suggests that Didier Deschamps could be his replacement. The Mail also reports that Sunderland's Michael Gray has caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson. Apparently the Manchester United manager wants the England full-back as a long-term replacement for Denis Irwin. Like recent signing Mark Bosnich, Gray had an abortive spell at United as a youngster and would be keen to return. Whether Sunderland would sell is another matter. Elsewhere in the North East, Newcastle and Middlesbrough have been alerted to the imminent auction of Wolves' Robbie Keane. Wolves boss Colin Lee signed a new contract with the club yesterday but, reports The Mirror, he immediately went on record to declare Keane's availability and suggested that "it would be better if Robbie went quickly." Wolves will be looking for £7m for the 18-year-old Eire international. The rumour digest: today's other tall tales Andy Booth Sheffield Wed to Huddersfield £3m Lee Morris Sheffield Utd to Derby £3m Curtis Woodhouse Sheffield Utd to Rangers £3m Slaven Bilic Everton to West Ham £2.5m Per Frandsen Bolton to Sunderland £2m Tim Flowers Blackburn to Celtic for £2m Stan Lazaridis West Ham to Man City £2m
