Bill's Comment:
There's not much going on in the news today due
to the Euro 2000 qualifiers.  Thankfully, all of United's
players appear to have come through uninjured (except
for Bozzo, but Raimond played well for the Reserves on Tues,
so no worries there!)  Read the Reserve Team Match
Report by THE OLD FART for more details....

Important info on Rio from Mike Dobbin:

Re the tournament in Brazil, United have not yet announced ticket
information, but have asked branches for estimates of numbers required.
Contact United immediately and ask to be given ticket information
when this is available, qouting your United membership number.
If you are not a member then this may be a problem if they are supplying
tickets to members only.

Ken Merrett has just visited Rio to check out the arrangements, and adivised
members at the branch conference on Saturday that they should think
carefully before going to the tournament, since Rio is an extremely
dangerous place, with a very high murder rate.

Manchester United Reserves 1-1 Blackburn Rovers Reserves The 'No Marks' Really Lost the Plot - by THE OLD FART Tuesday Nov 16, 1999 It wasn't a massive crowd at Gigg Lane last night (it was very cold!) and as a consequence we could hear most of what was being said both on and off the pitch. I said to dad that their coach (Terry Darracott?) was 'showing off' as he was shouting so loud and with 'affectation' - "pompous arsehole", I might be tempted to say. Well, as we saw at the end their coach got the just rewards for all his 'posturing' as his No-mark Rovers players completely lost it. When we saw our squad run out I have to say that I fancied us for a win. It was a delight to see both Butt and Sherringham returning after their enforced lay-offs. With their inclusion and also Cruyff (although I thought Healy desperately unlucky to lose his place) we looked very strong indeed. It didn't turn out that way. Although it was end-to-end stuff from the kick-off their passing was crisper than ours and they came much closer to scoring. Indeed how they failed to score on one occasion is an absolute mystery; their centre forward knocking one over the bar which even my mam would have been embarrassed to miss! We rallied a bit after twenty and began to take the game to them, tightening up our passing and managing to get in behind their defense. Both Fortune and Higginbotham did well down the left flank and both put in several telling crosses from which both Cruyff and Sherringham missed. Half time nin-nil. Decided not to risk a pie! The second half began much as the first had done. They looked the sharper and their passing was much more accurate and effective. After five minutes they went one up with a nicely worked goal which cut our defense to pieces. I have to say that it was a reflection on the game as they had troubled our defense on several occasions whilst we had really only carved out a few half chances. Again Higginbotham was providing good width and crosses from the left which Sherringham managed to miss. One cross in particular was a belter, hit low and hard, it skimmed across the Rovers goal area and, had Teddy been a little sharper, would have led to a goal. In fairness to the lad it was his first game back after a lay-off so his slowness could be excused. In the twenty-fifth minute Healy replaced Fortune and that was a disappointment. Both dad and myself would have taken Cruyff off as he was having one of his 'Look at me I'm a star, I don't run for the ball, or tackle back' games. He really should be away. We were looking a little bit stronger and perhaps all the effort Rovers had put in (they denied us any space for the whole of the first half and worked tremendously hard) was beginning to take it's toll, but we did look a bit likely. Towards the end of the game Healy had a great run only to be tackled at the last moment - corner. We took it short to Wilson and he hit a quite brilliant curling shot which their goalie saved, palming away, equally brilliantly. Both dad and I thought that that, perhaps, was our last chance to salvage a point, UNTIL Greening went down the left flank and cut inside to hit a beautiful chip to the top right corner. Their goalie took the ball but fell backwards, then motioned forwards. The referee would have played on but the linesman was insistent with his flag. A goal was given and their players went absolutely daft. Both the goalie and a defender raced at the linesman and we could see that they were swearing at him, even from thirty yards away. It was daft behaviour as it was only a bloody reserve team match when all is said and done, but they were very worked up and Darracott finally got his just deserts when both of their players were sent packing. Both dad and I agreed that we thought we had seen the goalie take the ball behind the line, but in fairness we were not in any sort of position to judge. The linesman was perfectly placed and gave the decision. Had nothing been given I don't think any Reds would have argued. Overall I think they just about shaded it, but for our battling qualities perhaps we did deserve the draw. One thing I know for sure and that is their coach deserved bugger all as he was such an arrogant tosser throughout the game. Don't you like it when that sort of thing happens? I do! Man of the match was, without doubt, Curtis. He was partnered by Wallwork who didn't have such a brilliant game so it was on Curtis's shoulders that most of the defensive responsibility fell; he was quite excellent yet again (that's two m-o-t-m awards from me on the bounce). Clegg was crap. Higginbotham provided great facility down the left flank, along with Fortune. Cruyff didn't want to have a shower after the game so he didn't bother running about. Wilson worked hard along with Butt in midfield. Nicky used the game as very much a practice match. He didn't do too much, but what he did, he did well; I do wish his passing was better though. Sherringham ran the line well without ever really killing himself. I thought he looked a little disdainful on occasion but then when you've scored in the EC Final at the Nou Camp I guess a reserve match at Gigg Lane is a bit beneath you! Greening, once again, did a lot of running. Oh, and Raimond did o.k. too. Keep the faith, 'THE OLD FART' THE OLD FART, www.red11.org

FANS PLANNING TO BLOCK EDWARDS MANCHESTER United fans aim to deal under-fire chairman Martin Edwards another blow at today's AGM. Edwards hopes to become chairman of the club's plc. But lobby group Shareholders United want to undermine his bid as they have not forgiven him for trying to sell the club to BSkyB or for his rift with Sir Alex Ferguson.
