Subject: PREVIEW: MAN UNITED(1) v WIMBLEDON(16) FA Premier League Kick Off: 15:00 * * * Having won six and drawn one of their opening seven matches, champions and league leaders Manchester United should win again against 16th-placed Wimbledon on Saturday -- even if Alex Ferguson's team have been ravaged by injury and were below their best in their 0-0 draw against Croatia Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday. Wimbledon have not won any of their last six league matches since beating Watford 3-2 on the opening day of the season and will cause a major upset if they end United's unbeaten run of 41 competitive matches. * * * Manchester Utd. Wimbledon OLSEN OUT TO PUT THE BOOT IN Joe Kinnear may have gone, but there is still the air of unconventionality around Selhurst Park. Former Norwegian manager Egil Olsen has taken over from the likable Kinnear, and the wellington boot-wearing Marxist is beginning to instill his manifesto in his new charges. While manager of the Norwegian team, Olsen was always spoken of as a Wimbledon-style manager, happy to forego the niceties of the modern game, and hit long balls at target men upfront. It wasn't pretty, but it worked. He took the Norwegians to the World Cup finals in 1994 and 1998, making it through to the second round in France last year. Devotees of the Dons are well versed in their particular brand of football. They have been in the top flight since 1986, proving critics wrong at every turn. Every year they are tipped for relegation. Every year they avoid it. Three top ten finishes in the last five years just go to show how far they have progressed. And who can forget their FA Cup triumph in 1988? The ultimate underdogs. Their infectious self-belief means that they will be striving for a place in Europe for next season. That may prove beyond their grasp, as one win from seven matches so far this season is not the best of starts. But the Dons are often at their strongest when they have a point to prove. Beating the Treble champions on their own turf would do just that. They've cleared out a couple of their best-known names in recent weeks, with Mark Kennedy moving to Manchester City and Efan Ekoku joining Grasshoppers of Zurich. There are still enough talented players, however, to give United a good fight at Old Trafford. They have a few injury worries ahead of the game, following their 1-1 draw at Cardiff in the Worthington Cup on Tuesday evening. Tore Pedersen, Chris Wilmott, Gareth Ainsworth and Brian McAllister are all receiving treatment, and are doubtful for the trip north. Neil Sullivan, currently undecided over his new contract, will form the last line of defence, behind Alan Kimble, Dean Blackwell, Trond Andersen and Duncan Jupp. Carl Cort and John Hartson will form an impressive strike partnership. United will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of the 0-0 draw against Croatia Zagreb on Tuesday night. Several players were below par in that match, which may lead to some changes for the visit of the Dons. Massimo Taibi and Mickael Silvestre will certainly come back after being ineligible for the Champions League encounter, but injuries in midfield may limit Alex Ferguson's options. Roy Keane is definitely out, and Nicky Butt is rated as doubtful. Quinton Fortune, who has impressed on his two substitute appearances this season, has gone to South Africa for two weeks on international duty, so Jonathan Greening or Jordi Cruyff may come into midfield. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not figure on the substitutes' bench against Zagreb with a minor niggle, and will probably also miss out again, with Cole and Yorke looking to add to their five goals apiece so far this season. Probable teams: United: Taibi; Silvestre, Stam, Berg, P Neville; Giggs, Scholes, Greening, Beckham; Yorke, Cole. Wimbledon: Sullivan; Kimble, Andersen, Blackwell, Jupp; Euell, Roberts, M Hughes, Badir; Hartson, Cort.

Subject: Bosnich takes up residency on the bench Saturday September 18, 1999 Mark Bosnich will have to make do with a place on the bench for Manchester United's match with Wimbledon at Old Trafford today as Massimo Taibi establishes his No1 status after his impressive debut at Liverpool last weekend. Speculation is rife that, after Alex Ferguson's decision to play Raimond van der Gouw in United's Champions League game against Croatia Zagreb on Tuesday, Bosnich may be sold at the end of the year when Taibi becomes eligible to play in Europe. But the manager has been quick to quash such rumours. "We have three goalkeepers now, which means competition for places," he said. "That is why we bought Taibi. We wanted competition and I welcome that." Bosnich is not the only player facing an uncertain future at the club. Denis Irwin, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is looking over his shoulder with the arrival of the France Under-21 defender Mickael Silvestre from Internazionale. But Irwin, who will be 34 next month, does not see it as a threat. "The club have signed a new left-back, which means more competition, but it's up to me to battle for my place," he said. "There has always been competition here, it's what you expect at a club this size." Irwin hopes to be given the all-clear after his Achilles injury but Ferguson will study the conditions before deciding whether to play the Irishman and will not risk him if the pitch is too hard. He also hopes to have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fit again after the Norwegian striker injured his knee in training. But the outlook for Roy Keane is not good and the United captain is expected to be sidelined for a few more weeks. United go into the match with a six-point lead in the Premiership but it means little to Ferguson. "We are pleased, but it's early days," he said, "and Wimbledon are always a challenge. They have great team spirit and will make it difficult for us."

Subject: WALLWORK ESCAPES LIFE BAN Manchester United defender Ronnie Wallwork has escaped a life ban after a Belgian court reduced his sentence for manhandling a referee. Wallwork's punishment has been cut to a three-year suspended sentence, two of which will be probationary. United's Danny Higginbotham, who had been banned for one year for his part in the fracas, has had his sentence cut to four months. The defender will be free to play again from September 26. Wallwork and Higginbotham were on loan at Royal Antwerp when the bust-up happened at the end of a Belgian Second Division play-off match at the close of last season.

Subject: Sheringham Fulham talk resurfaces Fulham are being linked once again with a move for Manchester United and England star Teddy Sheringham. The rumour mill is working overtime after news leaked that Fulham are bidding to sign a big-name Premiership striker this weekend. Nothing has been confirmed, but Sheringham is the name everyone at Craven Cottage is talking about. He is fed up of sitting in the reserves at Old Trafford, even after his heroic performances in the FA Cup and European Cup finals last season. Now he is finally ready to move back to London, and Fulham are astonishingly at the head of the queue. If rumours are to be believed, then high-level talks have already got underway and the only real stumbling block is that Fulham face major competition from another club for his signature. Fulham have made no secret of the fact that they are looking for a striker after missing out in the race to sign Ade Akinbiyi. But news that Sheringham is the man they are looking at will stun even the most staunch of Fulham fans. However, the word going around Old Trafford is that the England ace will remain at United until his contract runs out in the summer, by which time he'll make a move under the Bosman ruling. Meanwhile, United have been linked with a 17m swoop for Corinthians midfielder Vampeta, according to reports in Brazil. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is said to have already made detailed enquiries as to the availability of the highly-rated 25 year old.

Subject: RESERVES DRAW A BLANK Thursday, September 16,1999 09:06 Liverpool Res. 0 Man United Res. 0 United were back at Anfield last night, but they couldn't make it a four day double over their fiercest rivals. It was the turn of the Reserves to venture into the lion's den to try and emulate the hard-fought victory claimed by the first team last Saturday. Mark Bosnich, returning from almost a month out with a hamstring problem, was troubled with a shot from Stig-Inge Bjornebye early on, but redeemed himself later in the game with a couple of important saves to keep United in the hunt. In much the same way as their first team had done on Saturday, Liverpool Reserves piled on the pressure in the closing stages and went close more than once to breaking the deadlock. A shot from Ian Armstrong tested Bosnich who dealt with it by employing a double-fisted punch. And a couple of minutes later Bosnich was again prominent as he dived bravely to prevent Richie Partridge from squeezing in a near-post shot. Bosnich was given the treatment by the Koppites, who rained derision down upon him everytime he was involved in the action. United did little to inspire optimism for their small group of supporters, but their efforts were still sufficient to pick up what can always be looked upon as a valuable point when visiting Anfield. Jordi Cruyff was given the best chance of tipping the scales United's way but he couldn't make the most of a David Healy cross in the 33rd minute. Jonathan Greening was also presented with a decent looking opportunity after 56 minutes but he couldn't keep his shot down and it ended up high and wide in a vast expanse of vacant seats in the Anfield Road stand. UNITED: Bosnich, Roche, Curtis (sub: Hilton), Wallwork, O'Shea, Healy, Wellens (sub: Ford), Cruyff, Greening, Notman (sub: Nevland), Chadwick. Subs not used: Culkin, Twiss.
