Daily RED Trivia  Thurs 21st January 1999:

Yesterday 20/1/1994: Sir Matt Busby died aged 84. Manager between 1945-70, his legacy is the
 club we worship today. Busby won 5 League Championships, in 1952, 1956, 1957,
 1965 and 1967, 2 FA Cups in 1948 and 1963, and the European Cup in 1968.

21/1/1977: Phil Neville born in Bury. Neville won an FA Youth Cup medal in 1995, and
 made his senior debut at Manchester City in February 1995. He won Premiership
 medals in 1996 and  1997, plus an FA Cup Winners medal in 1996. Between
 1995-98 he has made 101 appearances, mainly at Full-back, and scored 1 goal. He 
 won his first England cap against China in 1996..

1978: United trounce former manager Tommy Docherty's Derby County 4-0 in a
 Division 1 game at Old Trafford watched by 57,115. Martin Buchan, Stuart Pearson
 and two goals from Gordon Hill made it an unhappy return for the Doc. Team was:
 Roche, Nicholl, Albiston, McIlroy, Houston, Buchan, Coppell, J.Greenhoff, Pearson,
 Macari, Hill. 


Barry Daily Comment:
Further to last week's reports, Erik Nevland's proposed loan deal to
Gothenburg has fallen through. The young Norwegian striker scored the
second goal for the Reserves against Derby on Tuesday, and will not be
joining the Swedish side as was widely expected.

In Memory Of Sir Matt Busby

Subject: In Loving Memory 20/1/1994: Sir Matt Busby died aged 84. Manager between 1945-70, his legacy is the club we worship today. Busby won 5 League Championships, in 1952, 1956, 1957, 1965 and 1967, 2 FA Cups in 1948 and 1963, and the European Cup in 1968. Sir Matt Poem by Ethan Fry Back in the days, when we were just another side, and victory was just a daunting task Sir Matt came to us, beaming with pride, and gave us more than we could ask. But on a snowy strip in Munich, many hearts were broken, and we were reluctantly shot back in to the past. Sir Matt, Sir Matt, you're a hero to us all, You always knew what winning really meant; Sir Matt, Sir Matt, you're a hero to us all, Sorrow was the mood here when you went. And on the Wembley ground, in 1968, you raised the cup with great delight; Just ten years prior, your hopes were dashed, forced to realise the horrid, ultimate plight. Sir Matt, Sir Matt, you're a hero to us all, You'll always be a red to us and them; Sir Matt, Sir Matt, you're a hero to us all, We'll play in your defence, just tell us when. __________________

Subject: Derby County Reserves 2 United Reserves 2 Mark Wilson and Erik Nevland saved a point for United Reserves in the second half of this thoroughly entertaining and rain-sodden contest. United and the Rams deserve a good deal of credit for putting on a splendid display, despite being drenched in varying degrees on a dismal night. The proceedings began at a healthy tempo, which was maintained throughout even though a 'sponge-pudding' pitch slowly became heavier as the night wore on. Derby charged out of the blocks to hit United with a blast of instant pressure, which very nearly brought them a goal in the fifth minute when Raimond van der Gouw was forced to make a terrific one-handed, flying save to keep out a shot from Kevin Harper. As it was, Derby were soon in the driving seat anyway. In the 12th minute they went ahead with a fine headed goal from Malcolm Christie. United made several attempts - mainly with long-distance shots - to draw level, but it wasn't until six minutes before the break that they finally succeeded in the mission. Philip Mulryne started the move with a short ball to Alex Notman. The young Scotsman wasted no time in despatching the ball into the path of Mark Wilson, who advanced before firing a low left-foot shot past Rams' keeper Russell Hoult. United opened the second half with a flurry of quick attacks, but it was Derby who scored the next goal, when Christie cut in from the left to put his side back in front. The Reds' bold start to the second period wasn't in vain, however, for less than two minutes after Christie's strike, they were level. Philip Mulryne made it possible with a brilliant through ball to Erik Nevland, who quickly skirted around Hoult before shooting into an empty net. Both sides found themselves in a position to win the game in the time that remained, but nobody inside the Baseball Ground could have contested that a draw was, by far, the fairest result on an awful night. United introduced 18-year-old Stephen Rose to Pontin's League football in the 70th minute when he replaced Michael Ryan at right-back. UNITED: van der Gouw, Ryan (sub: Rose), Curtis, May, O'Shea, Ford, Mulryne, Wilson, Nevland, Notman (sub: Healy), Greening.

BREAKING NEWS - Thursday 21 January 1999 Subject: KIDD RULES OUT UNITED RETURN Brian Kidd has ruled out a return to Manchester United to succeed Alex Ferguson as manager. Kidd, who has been an instant success since becoming Blackburn boss in December, does not believe United would want him back. Kidd, along with Middlesbrough manager Bryan Robson, has been tipped to take over at Old Trafford when Ferguson finally decides to call it a day. But now United's former assistant boss reckons he is low on the list of potential successors. "I'm sure that the club wouldn't want me back and I would think that I'm well down the pecking order when it comes to replacing the gaffer," he said in the Manchester United magazine. Ferguson has hinted that he may step down in four years time in 2003 when he will be 61. Ferguson is due to negotiate a new contract with the club in the summer and Kidd feels his old boss has a few more seasons left in him yet. "Long may he stay at the club because he's been superb and there's plenty left in him," he said. Meanwhile Andy Cole has taken a fresh pop at England coach Glenn Hoddle for questioning his sharpness in front of goal. The United striker insists he is "not fussed" about being ignored by Hoddle, but will not tolerate his criticisms of him. He said: "If someone doesn't think I'm good enough to be in the England team then fair enough - I'm not fussed about that. But what I won't have is being talked about as if I'm not good enough to play for Manchester United and that I miss all those chances. I'm not taking that from anyone, the England manager, or whoever."

Subject: Fergies Testimonial Full story By David McDonnell The ?3million testimonial aimed at saluting Alex Ferguson's glittering career is being offered first to a host of blue-chip companies and Manchester United's wealthiest supporters. Sportsmail can today reveal details of what will be the most lavish and astonishing benefit in the history of the game. Corporate hospitality packages including tickets to a Manchester United v Rest of the World XI at Old Trafford, a concert by Simply Red, a pro-am golf day, a race day at Haydock Park and a host of other social events are on offer at up to ?100,000 a time. An estimated 500 companies have been sent details of the extravagant packages, which have been divided into silver, gold and platinum deals, offering VIP treatment at all the events. The ?12,000 silver package includes 20 tickets to the all-star match, featuring former United star Eric Cantona, 20 concert tickets, the chance to meet Ferguson, a parking pass and two tickets to the race day. The more lucrative gold package, which costs ?20,000, offers 40 tickets to the match on August 6, 40 concert tickets, four tickets to the race day on July 11 and a champagne lunch. Top of the range, at a staggering ?100,000, is the platinum offer, which includes two advertising boards at the match, the right to use the Alex Ferguson Tribute logo for advertising and 200 tickets to the match. The optimum package also includes two places in the July 5 pro-am golf day, introductions to the likes of Tiger Woods and Mark O'Meara, 10 parking passes and 200 tickets to the August 20 pop concert at Haydock Park. Jonathan Bodansky, whose sponsorship company devised the corporate deals, said there had already been a positive response. 'There is huge interest in Alex Ferguson and a lot of people feel he deserves such a testimonial after all that he has given to football over the years,' he said. 'The reason for these different packages is the recognition that they will create a bigger pot of money for all those involved. 'If people think that Alex Ferguson already has enough money, then they don't have to participate. It's as simple as that. 'But charities are also going to benefit and, with the different packages on offer, we feel there is a great opportunity to significantly raise income from the event. 'We are simply helping to maximise the revenue potential with our involvement. That is our role. If we were to sell a handful of the platinum packages and possibly 20 or 30 of the others, then we would be very excited indeed.' Proceeds will be split between Ferguson and two designated charities, one of which is the Elizabeth Hardie Ferguson Fund - the charity trust set up in memory of his mother. The other has yet to be confirmed. United's long-time sponsor, Sharp, has been given the first opportunity to purchase the packages, which will then be offered to Old Trafford box-holders and high-profile companies within the north-west. It is understood that 57-year-old Ferguson, whose annual salary is in the region of ?800,000, is set to reap about ?1.5m from the events. The golf day, race day and pop concert are all set to receive national television coverage, which will further enhance the potential revenue for Ferguson and the good causes involved. Striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted he will not leave United this season - no matter what offers come in for him. The 25-year-old, who almost joined Tottenham earlier this season and has attracted interest from West Ham, said: 'I will not leave this year and that is definite.' David Beckham, who limped off with a groin injury during Teddy Scott's testimonial against Aberdeen on Monday, has been given the all-clear to play in Sunday's FA Cup clash against Liverpool.
