Subject: United turn to Ehiogu to solve defensive nightmare ALEX FERGUSON has been handed 12million to buy his way out of Manchester United's defensive crisis - and Aston Villa powerhouse Ugo Ehiogu is his top target. Ferguson has emerged triumphant from a summit with his money-conscious chief executive Martin Edwards. The Old Trafford manager's plans have been thrown into turmoil with Ronny Johnsen ruled out for the rest of the season - as revealed in Mirror Sport yesterday - along with England international Wes Brown. David May is also sidelined for the next month with strained medial ligaments, Gary Neville has yet to play since the Champions Final in Barcelona, and promising young centre-half Ronnie Wallwork has been banned for life following an attack on a referee in Belgium. That has left United desperately short of defenders, and former England Under-21 skipper Ehiogu has emerged as Ferguson's best option, with Sol Campbell unavailable from Tottenham. The Villa star would welcome a move to United to join his two closest friends in the game, Dwight Yorke and Mark Bosnich. Ferguson has to launch a frantic search as the Champions League deadline for new signings is August 31. Ehiogu, 26, publicly criticised Villa manager John Gregory before the season kicked off for not bringing in sufficient quality to make a serious challenge for the Premiership title. Surprisingly, Gregory forgave Ehiogu and has included him in the team at the start of the campaign ahead of promising teenager Gareth Barry. The major stumbling block would be the fee. Ehiogu is worth around 6million, but Villa would have to hand over half of that to neighbours West Bromwich Albion. That was the agreement struck between Villa and Albion when Ehiogu was snatched by the Premiership side nearly eight years ago for a bargain 40,000. Only recently, Villa chairman Doug Ellis and his Albion counterpart Tony Hale tried to thrash out a compromise. It is thought Hale would have settled for a straight fee of 1m but, surprisingly, that was not acceptable to Ellis. However, former Villa boss Brian Little is now in charge at Albion, and it is likely a player exchange deal will be thrashed out that would cover the Ehiogu cash, allowing Villa to sell the defender and keep virtually all the profit. Ehiogu, 26, has two years left on his contract and has one full cap to add to his string of England under-21 appearances. His chances of being a regular at Old Trafford are good, especially with Johnsen out for the season. The Norwegian's surgery involves the removal of 30 per cent of tendon from both knees and carries a recovery rate of 70 per cent.

Subject: GREENING BRACE GIVES REDS WIN Thursday, August 19, 1999 09:05 UNITED Reserves 3-1 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY Reserves United's Reserves began life in the FA Premier Reserve League last night with a comfortable, but not unhindered, win over Sheffield Wednesday at Gigg Lane. They were rarely in danger of not winning the match that was a glowing advertisement for the new competition, which has replaced United's involvement in the Pontin's (Central) League stretching back to 1911. Both teams were intent on attack from the off and gave the modest crowd, of something in region of 450, plenty to admire. Jonathan Greening, who netted nine times in United's last ever Pontin's League season, put his side ahead in the ninth minute from a penalty he was forced to take twice. The award followed an innocent looking affray in the Wednesday area. Greening slotted home his first shot to the left of Owls' keeper Stuart Jones, but changed his ploy for the re-take. The Owls weren't long in hitting back, for less than eight minutes later they were on terms after a deflected shot from Phil Scott had sped past Nick Culkin, in the United goal. A firm header from Wednesday central defender Leigh Bromby very nearly gave his side the lead, in the 22nd minute, but Culkin was alert to the danger. Michael Twiss, now back in the fold at Old Trafford following a long furlough with Sheffield United, restored United's advantage three minutes after the restart. United upped the tempo during the middle section of the second half and they went close twice in the space of three minutes. Luke Chadwick completed one of his darting runs with a great ball which failed narrowly to find Greening, and Twiss went close with a free-kick after Greening had been fouled by Scott. Scott was shown the yellow card for the offence, just one of the six players - four from United - to find their way into the referee's notebook. That statistic suggests that the game was a little more vigorous than is desirable, which is misleading. United wrapped up the points in the 75th minute when Greening slotted home efficiently after taking a great diagonal pass from Chadwick. The result was a little harsh on the visitors, but in the end the team that takes their chances is the one which collects the points, and on this occasion that team was the one wearing the red shirts. UNITED: Culkin, Clegg M., Curtis, Roche, O'Shea (sub: Hilton), Stewart, Wellens, Twiss (sub: Davis), Greening, Notman, Chadwick. Subs not used: Howard, Rose S.

Subject: United man is Hughes' Wales No2 Friday August 20, 1999 Mark Hughes has made a dramatic clean sweep by announcing a completely new Wales coaching staff. The new Welsh manager has named the man who first coached him at Manchester United, Eric Harrison, as his assistant. Hughes yesterday named his first squad, to play Belarus in the Euro 2000 qualifier on September 4 in Minsk, but did not spring any real surprises, although the Southampton veteran named himself only on the standby list of players for the Group One game. Instead his announcement of changes to the back-room staff will be the talking points of his first squad. Harrison is credited with the development of many promising Old Trafford youngsters, while Chelsea's goalkeeping coach Eddie Niedzwiecki is also on Hughes's staff. Harrison was responsible for bringing on Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil and Gary Neville. Hughes has also brought in a new under-21 coaching team, ending the control of the brothers Tom and Ernie Whalley. They are replaced by Jimmy Shoulder, who recently left as the FA of Wales youth development officer to take over Swindon's youth set-up, with the former Wales international Mark Bowen alongside him. - Scotland's Under-21 captain Grant Brebner is poised to join Hibernian from Reading for an undisclosed fee and he is likely to play against St Johnstone tomorrow. Brebner had a spell on loan at Hibs from Manchester United at the end of the 1997-98 season but then opted for Reading. Wales squad: Jones (Southampton), Crossley (Nottm Forest); Barnard (Barnsley), Delaney (A Villa), Coleman , Symons , Melville (all Fulham), Page (Watford), J Robinson (Charlton), Savage (Leicester), Speed ( Newcastle), Pembridge (Everton), C Robinson (Wolves), Oster (Sunderland), Hartson (Wimbledon), Blake (Blackburn), Saunders (Bradford C), Giggs (Manchester Utd).

Subject: Kidd considering legal action against Sir Alex? Brian Kidd and Alex Ferguson are on a collision course following revelations in Fergie's autobiography, which have upset the Blackburn boss. Kiddo is apparently considering suing his old boss, who has accused the ex-United star of going behind his back during last summer's transfer negotiations for Dwight Yorke. Fergie says Kidd wanted to buy John Hartson rather than Yorke and made these suggestions to the United board, without telling the manager. In the book Fergie also says he did not feel Kidd had the right potential to succeed him as manager Old Trafford, and this has really sparked things off. Kidd is ready to take legal action now that he has received approval from the Ewood board. The Rovers board would obviously prefer Kidd to concentrate his attentions on securing promotion to the Premier League bearing in mind the time consuming process legal action will take. They are also aware of the possible negative publicity the Club could attract over an issue which is not of their making particularly considering the ill feeling between the Clubs over the Shearer transfer saga. However the Board also realise this is private matter between Kidd and Ferguson and as such he could take legal action without consent of the Rovers board.
