 Good News from Sunday - Leeds go Top!

No, you didn't read it incorrectly. Leeds are top after a 2-0 at Chelsea
and I'm relieved. Nope, I have not lost my marbles - that happened long
ago. The team who are top at Chrsitmas rarely win the League - I think it's
only once in the past 10 seasons. With almost half the season gone, we're
well placed to win in. Like all Reds, I wish we could have defended the cup
but by the time we get back from Brazil we'll have about 4 games in hand on
Leeds & Arsenal but we'll be maybe 10 plus points behind and fixture
congestion is already a problem. But we're hitting form at a good time and
with only a couple of long term injuries, we look to be our way to another
scintillating 2nd half of a season.

West Ham 2-4 Manchester United By Mark Bradley, PA Sport Chief Soccer Writer Manchester United emerged from their self-imposed 10-day exile from domestic action to produce a devastating three-goal burst in the opening 21 minutes against a shambolic West Ham defence at Upton Park. Dwight Yorke's first goal in two months gave the visitors the lead after 10 minutes and then a double strike by Ryan Giggs - the second a majestic volley - looked to have wrapped up the game before Paolo di Canio pulled a goal back on 25 minutes. Manny Omoyimni, the West Ham striker whose substitute's appearance in the Worthington Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa while being ineligible has thrown the result into doubt, was not even included on the bench. West Ham boss Harry Redknapp instead brought Scott Minto and Marc-Vivien Foe into his starting line-up at the expense of Javier Margas and injured Joe Cole in a bid to freshen up his side for their third game in eight days. For United, striker Andy Cole was a surprise omission even from the United bench, with Teddy Sheringham taking his place in the side, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench. When the United squad arrived at Upton Park, David Beckham - who grew up in East London but has never been forgiven for moving to Old Trafford - was given police protection from the coach due to the anticipated abuse he faced from Hammers fans. Beckham was vilified by the West Ham fans last season in the immediate wake of his World Cup red card, and his first touch was duly met by a crescendo of booing, even if it did not immediately reach the levels of a year ago. West Ham boss Redknapp appeared to have made special plans for coping with United as captain Steve Lomas, normally to the fulcrum of the midfield, reverted to a defensive role to man-mark Giggs. However, after a largely even first few minutes, the home side soon found themselves overwhelmed in defence. And to the horror of the Upton Park faithful, it was Beckham who was the creator of United's opening goal on ten minutes. He curled in a trademark cross from the right flank straight to the unmarked Yorke, who had no trouble heading past keeper Shaka Hislop. The goal was scored in front of the massed ranks of West Ham fans and their indignation at Beckham and Yorke celebrating just a few yards away was apparent. However, there was even worse to come three minutes later when the entire West Ham defence stood and watched as Yorke crossed for Giggs to toe-poke the ball home from just a couple of yards out. The Hammers attempted to finally get their free-flowing football going, but apart from a couple of touches by Di Canio there was little to trouble the United defence. In truth, West Ham were a complete shambles at the back as they seemed patently unable to cope not only with United attacking forays but also with this rare attempt at fielding a back four. And so, after just 21 minutes the home side found themselves 3-0 down after a wonderful strike by the irrepressible Giggs. Yorke had twisted and turned inside the penalty area only for his shot to be blocked but the ball fell to the Welsh winger just after 25 yards out and he hit the first time volley which riffled past the bemused figure of Hislop into the net. The home fans started chanting "what a load of rubbish" but at least they were handed the faint hope of a life line on 25 minutes when Lomas' long-range free-kick was headed across goal by Neil Ruddock and there was Di Canio to volley home under keeper Raimond Van Ver Gouw. While the Hammers did start to offer more of an attacking threat, with di Canio firing over the bar soon afterwards, they were still vulnerable at the back especially to balls played along the surface in the direction of Ruddock. Giggs' dangerous cross was deflected just wide and then Beckham and Marc Keller jumped for a high ball together and the West Ham midfielder fell to the ground, clutching his face. Referee Uriah Rennie took no action on that occasion yet he booked Di Canio for disputing the official's failure to spot what the Italian believed was a handball. West Ham needed to keep calm rather than losing their cool but at least they managed to ensure that United did not score again before the break, which given the one-sided nature of the first half-hour was something of an achievement in itself. HT West Ham 1 Manchester United 3 The considerable depth of United's squad was yet again shown at half-time when England international Phil Neville came on to replace Denis Irwin at left back. And the visitors were immediately back on the offensive with Hislop having to produce a superb diving save to prevent Giggs from securing his hat-trick after running unchallenged for 20 yards before firing in an effort bound for the bottom corner of the net. The West Ham keeper also denied Paul Scholes from long range, while Lomas prevented Giggs from reaching the rebound and Roy Keane later cannoned a shot into the side netting. But for all of the United pressure, West Ham somehow managed to strike back on 52 minutes when Di Canio just managed to beat the offside trap and sold an outrageous dummy to go past Van der Gouw and shoot into the empty net. Suddenly West Ham were reinvigorated as they flooded forward in search of an equaliser, brimming with confidence. Keller had a shot well saved by van der Gouw and Paulo Wanchope's effort was deflected inches wide but then the whole complexion of the game changed within the space of a minute. For a couple of seconds, it looked as if Di Canio was bound to put the home side level at 3-3 when Wanchope's dummy left the Italian clear through on goal. But when he was set up he inexplicably tried to execute a turn and chip and was left to hold his head in his hands as he simply managed to lift the ball gently into the keeper's grasp. As the Italian and many of his team-mates shook their heads in disbelief, United responded by breaking at the other end and when Giggs crossed into the box, the entire Hammers defence was rooted to the spot as Yorke swept in for his second goal of the game to put United 4-2 ahead. © PA Sporting Life

Posh wants Keane deal for David Posh Spice has raised the prospect of David Beckham moving abroad one day and reckons her husband should be on the same wages as Roy Keane. Beckham's wife was interviewed on BBC Radio One on Friday where she made no secret of the pair's eventual plans to get out of the country and move "somewhere sunny". She said: "I think definitely, some time in the future he would want to go abroad." Her comments tally with various reports which have suggested Beckham has his sights set on moving to Barcelona at some point in his career. When asked if her man should be paid more, after Keane's recent wage hike to £52,000-a-week (before tax), she said: "Certainly, wouldn't you? I would love to say no, but I'd be lying. I don't know what kind of difference it's going to make, but I know that David's money should go up though."

French newspaper says Rivaldo to edge out Beckham David Beckham was beaten by Barcelona's sensational Brazilian Rivaldo has been named European player of the year, according to French newspaper L'Equipe. The Spanish media had already tipped the 27-year-old for the award ahead of rivals such as David Beckham and the player confirmed his honour in an interview on Friday. "This trophy is very important to me. It is a goal which every professional footballer strives for," Rivaldo is quoted as saying. According to L'Equipe, Manchester United star Beckham finished second for what has become known as the `Ballon D'Or.' None of the players who finished in the top three last year - Zinedine Zidane, Michael Owen or Ronaldo - made it to the top 10 this year. Meanwhile, it was a close run thing but Celtic star Henrik Larsson has pipped David Beckham in Sky Sports Online Best Footballer of the Year poll. Manchester United's Beckham had been leading the field for most of the way since we started the poll last Monday, but a sudden surge of Swedish international Larsson admirers saw him amass 31% of your votes, with Beckham, who has been nominated as European Footballer of the Year, just behind with 30%. The duo were well clear of the rest of the field headed by Leeds United's flying winger Harry Kewell with 17%, while Sunderland and rising England star Kevin Phillips totalled 14%.

The new man who may threaten Edwards' ambitions David Gow Saturday December 18, 1999 Roy Gardner is a super-fit, permanently tanned 54-year-old business executive who has turned British Gas from a by-word for corporate greed and inefficiency into one of the country's best-performing multi-utilities. Gardner, an apprentice and accountant in his early days on the Concorde project after trials with QPR, ran up Mount Kilimanjaro in October and raised £70,000 for the Carers National Association - of which he is president. A keen golfer in Hertfordshire who lists Annabel's as his club, Gardner has run the London marathon three times and the New York marathon once, again for charity. But there is nothing charitable about his drive for turnover and profit. Gardner became chief executive of Centrica, the gas supply business formed from the break-up of British Gas, in 1997 - just after the public outrage about excessive greed in the former state monopoly's boardroom. A highly-polished public performer and networker, Gardner has transformed the group from the most hated company in the UK to one that has its fingers in every niche and corner of people's lives. Centrica has retained more than 15 million gas customers despite competition from cheaper suppliers - and is on course to have four million electricity customers by the end of next year. Its success is such that the government has ordered an inquiry into why more people have not switched supplier. But Gardner and his board have steered Centrica into areas like financial services where its one million Goldfish credit-card holders are to be offered mortgages, home insurance and security, plumbing and, in future, telecoms. Earlier this year, Gardner pulled off a coup by outgunning Ford and others in snapping up the AA and its 9.5 million members for £1.1 billion. The City is entranced by this approach and profits more than doubled in the first half-year, marking Centrica shares up more than 50% higher than the Footsie 100 as a whole.
