The second was Solskjear's he's simply the best
We could have had 4 or we could have had 9
But we didn't start playing till injury time

Subject: www.red11.org Survey #51 Result Survey #51 Result: Do you agree with UNITED participating in the FIFA World Team Championships at the expense of the FA Cup? Yes: 48 35.3% No: 88 64.7% Total: 136 Bill's Comment: Well, not surprisingly it seems as though most people feel that this World Team Championships should not take precedent over the FA Cup. It seems as though this FIFA Cup is more a distraction than a focus for UNITED this season. It certainly will be historic to not defend the Treble which took so long to accomplish. * * * New Question: Who has been Sir Alex Ferguson's best signing? Vote Now: http://www.red11.org/miva/survey.mv
Subject: UNITED CHIEF: YOUNG GUNS WON'T DEFEND FA CUP Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards has declared there is no chance of the club fielding their youth team in next season's FA Cup. It had been suggested that United could ask their youngsters to defend the Cup while the senior side contested the World Club Championship in Brazil in January. "No offer of that nature has been made to us," confirmed Edwards. "We have consistently said that every option was reviewed and our decision has been made." The Treble-winners have been accused of devaluing the famous old competition by pulling out in order to play in the FIFA-backed competition in South America. But Edwards added: "I think that it would devalue the competition even more for us to play the youth team. What would the long-term ramifications of that be in terms of other clubs in the future? "It has always been clearly understood that this was a strictly one-off situation and our decision has been made." The Old Trafford chief was also keen to shift blame for the controversial decision away from the club. "We would have preferred to have played in the FA Cup but we changed our minds purely because of the Government pressure," he told The Sunday Telegraph. "The proof of that is that, when we were first approached to play in Brazil last January, we said an emphatic 'no'. It was only when it was put to us that if we didn't play we would be putting the 2006 World Cup bid at risk and it would cost vital votes in the bidding, that we had to reconsider. "The Government and the FA put it on reconsider. "The Government and the FA put it on our conscience."
Subject: BBC - United reject cup solution Edwards says there is no chance of entering the FA Cup The debate over Manchester United's withdrawal from the FA Cup drags on - with the club rejecting another potential solution. Chairman Martin Edwards has declared there is no chance of the club fielding their youth team in the competition. It had been suggested that United's youngsters could compete while the senior side contests the World Club Championship in Brazil in January. "The FA would certainly give this idea every consideration," said Football Association chairman Geoff Thompson. "The rules state that a club must field its best available team. "In this case, that would appear to be the players left behind who have not gone to Brazil." But Edwards says such a scheme is out of the question. "No offer of that nature has been made to us," he said. "We have consistently said that every option was reviewed and our decision has been made." The Treble-winners have been accused of devaluing the famous old competition by pulling out. But Edwards added: "I think that it would devalue the competition even more for us to play the youth team. "What would the long-term ramifications of that be in terms of other clubs in the future?" Edwards looks to blame others As the debate continues United are on a lucrative overseas tour. On Sunday the first team beat the Australian national team 1-0 in a friendly in Sydney watched by over 78,000 people. But Edwards insists the Brazil trip is wanted only by the FA to help England's 2006 World Cup bid. He remains keen to to shift blame for the decision away from the club. "We would have preferred to have played in the FA Cup but we changed our minds purely because of the government pressure," he told The Sunday Telegraph. "The government and the FA put it on our conscience." But Thompson told the Sunday Times that the World Cup bid was not the main factor. "I can assure you that the FA would still have adopted the same intensity about United going even if there was no vote on 2006," he said. "The chance of an English team, a European team, becoming world champion is too great an opportunity to pass up. "I can understand the reaction of some people but I believe it is a bold decision by the FA in a one-off situation. "We must become more international and less insular."
Subject: Manchester United beat Australia again SYDNEY, July 18 - Manchester United defeated Australia 1-0 at Sydney's Olympic Stadium on Sunday to complete a 2-0 series sweep over the Socceroos on the first leg of their pre-season tour of Australia and the far east. United, who won the first match 2-0 in Melbourne on Thursday, were untroubled against an Australian side missing most of their overseas-based stars. Dwight Yorke scored in the 25th minute for the visitors after being put clear by a delightful Ryan Giggs through ball, but neither goalkeeper was troubled after that. Australia, playing a mixture of Olympic squad members and locally-based players, tried hard but could not breach the United defence, with Dutchman Jaap Stam a standout at the back. Manchester United now move on to China.
Subject: UNITED TRIUMPH IN OZ Manchester United claim the Sharp Challenge Trophy after beating Australia 1-0 in Sydney. For the second time in four days the Treble-winners had too much class for the Socceroos in Sydney's Olympic Stadium. The pitch at the spanking new stadium was much better than the terrible surface the United players endured in Melbourne and one player who clearly benefited was Ryan Giggs. The Welshman was given licence to thrill after he was deployed in a free role and he was outstanding. He created an early chance for Dwight Yorke before he laid on the only goal after 25 minutes to the delight of the United contingent in the 78,000 crowd. Giggs slid the ball through to Yorke, who had made a diagonal run to the right, and last season's top scorer with 29 goals duly slotted home past Jason Petkovic. As in the first game, tempers boiled over and Manchester City's Danny Tiatto was understandably furious with Andy Cole after his reckless tackle put Simon Colosimo out of the game with torn knee ligaments. Cole could and should have added a second when he was presented with a good chance, but he shot weakly at Petkovic. The understrength Socceroos struggled to make any impact, but they opened up the United defence before half-time when Mark Bosnich rushed out to thwart West Ham's Stan Lazaridis. Once again the game was a useful workout for United and the highly-promising Mark Wilson caught the eye in midfield before he was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer midway through the half. United easily coped with Australia's toothless attack and substitute Clayton Zane blazed high and wide from a decent opening to sum up their finishing.
Subject: United still hungry for more silver Monday July 19, 1999 Manchester United won yet another piece of silverware by beating Australia 1-0 in front of 78,000 spectators in Sydney's Olympic Stadium yesterday to claim the Sharp Challenge Trophy. Their chairman Martin Edwards then denied that there were any plans to use the United youth team to defend the FA Cup next season. The treble-winners had beaten Australia 2-0 in the first match three days earlier and clinched the tournament yesterday despite a much-improved performance from the Socceroos. Ryan Giggs created an early chance for Dwight Yorke before laying on the only goal for the same player after 25 minutes. The Welshman slid the ball through to Yorke, who had made a diagonal run to the right, and last season's top scorer with 29 goals duly beat Jason Petkovic in the Australia goal. Denis Irwin, the United captain, said: "It was a fairly physical game; they made it hard for us to play. They were the better team on the day." Irwin, deputising for the injured Roy Keane, thought Australia's defensive trio of the captain Alex Tobin, Hayden Foxe and Stephen Laybutt were impressive. The promising Mark Wilson caught the eye in the United midfield before being replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Afterwards Edwards said there was no suggestion that United could ask their youngsters to defend the FA Cup while the senior side competed in the world club championship in Brazil in January. "No offer of that nature has been made to us," he said. "We have consistently said that every option was reviewed and our decision has been made." United have been accused of devaluing the competition by pulling out in order to play in the Fifa-backed tournament in South America. But Edwards said: "I think that it would devalue the competition even more for us to play the youth team. What would the long-term ramifications of that be in terms of other clubs in the future? "It has always been clearly understood that this was a strictly one-off situation, and our decision has been made." The Old Trafford chairman was also keen to shift blame for the controversial decision away from the club. "We would have preferred to have played in the FA Cup but we changed our minds purely because of the government pressure," he said. "The proof of that is that, when we were first approached to play in Brazil last January, we said an emphatic no. It was only when it was put to us that if we didn't play we would be putting the 2006 World Cup bid at risk, and it would cost vital votes in the bidding, that we had to reconsider. The government and the FA put it on our conscience." However, the idea of United's youth team standing in for their senior colleagues found support from the FA chairman Geoff Thompson. "The FA would certainly give this idea every consideration," he said. "The rules state that a club must field its best available team. In this case, that would appear to be the players left behind who have not gone to Brazil." And Thompson rebuffed Edwards' claim that the World Cup bid was the decisive factor. "I can assure you that the FA would still have adopted the same intensity about United going even if there was no vote on 2006," he said. "The chance of an English team becoming world champion is too great an opportunity to pass up."
