June 1952, pro.October 1953 To his death One of the truly outstanding members of manager Busby`s youth policy, Duncan Edwards was probably the finest prospect in English football when he joined UNITED from school in June 1952. Such was his progress that he made his First Division debut some eight months later whilst still only 16 years of age. Signed as a full-time professional on his 17th birthday, he became a regular first-team player during season 1953-4, when he took over at left half-back from Henry Cockburn. Capped on nine occasions by England Schoolboys, Duncan Edwards also represented his country at Youth level, appeared for England B, made 6 appearances for England u-23 and won 15 full England Caps. He made his first full International debut against Scotland at the age of 18 years and 183 days and celebrated the occasion by helping his country to an extraordinary 7-2 victory. By the time he reached his majority (21 in those days) he had, in addition to his International honours, represented the Football League on 6 occasions, won 2 League Championships, an FA Cup finalists` medal and 3 FA Youth Cup winners` medals. Duncan Edwards had just about every attribute necessary to become the complete footballer. He was naturally blessed with size, speed, control, power and courage. He was wonderful in the air and a stunning exponent of the cross-field pass - with distance no object. His bold buccaneering upfield sorties and fierce accurate shooting with either foot caused havoc in the best of defences. He also dearly loved the game and had the ideal temperament to cope with the special gifts of genius. Shortly after Duncan Edwards died in February 1958, Englands manager Walther Winterbottom (qv) said " It was in the character and spirit of Duncan Edwards that I saw the true revival of British football." He lost his battle for life at 01.16 gmt on 21st February 1958, as a result of the multiple injuries he had sustained in the Munich air crash. He had put up a wonderful fight to survive, doctors at the Munich hospital marvelling at his stamina. He nevertheless became the eighth UNITED player to fall victim to the crash, when his circulation failed as his kidney condition worsened. A permanent memorial to him is contained in a stained-glass window in St.Francis` Church in Dudley, Worcestershire. The greatest tragedy is, surely, that such an awesome potential remained largely unrealised. Appearances: FL 151 - 20 g FAC 12 - 1 g EUR 12 - 0 g Total: 175 apps 21 goals Article: Sunday Times: by Terry Venables BY THE time I was 15, it looked like I was going to be a good footballer. I was a big lad for my age, and the newspapers were calling me the new Duncan Edwards, the young hero at Manchester United. I was so flattered that I have kept those cuttings to this day. In the restaurant at my club, Scribes West, there is an oil painting of Edwards. He was my hero and an inspiration. When I was growing up, there was no televised football to speak of, and if you wanted to see a particular player or team, it meant going to one of their matches. It was February 1958 and United had just caused a stir by beating Bolton 7-2, and everyone was talking about Duncan Edwards. So I persuaded my dad, Fred, to come with me to Highbury to see United play Arsenal. It was an unusual trip for two committed Spurs fans, and a day I will never forget. United won a smashing match 5-4, but what happened afterwards gave the occasion a dreadful poignancy that still lingers. Just four days later, the Busby Babes were decimated by the Munich air crash. Along with everyone else, I was devastated. So many died so young - my hero among them. It was a terrible tragedy, too awful to dwell on. I prefer to remember that lovely day out with my dad, standing behind the goal at the old Clock end at Highbury. It took Duncan Edwards less than 10 minutes to show us what all the fuss was about. I remember I was a bit disappointed that United weren't at full strength. With the European Cup tie against Red Star Belgrade only four days away, Matt Busby rested his centre-half, Jackie Blanchflower, the two wingers, David Pegg and Johnny Berry, and the clever, creative inside-forward, Liam Whelan. Mind you, it was still a hell of a team, with a forward line that included Bobby Charlton, Tommy Taylor and Dennis Viollet, supported from half-back by Eddie Colman and the man I couldn't take my eyes off, Duncan Edwards. Jack Kelsey, a legend at Highbury, was in goal for Arsenal but, good as he was, he was beaten all the way when Duncan opened the scoring with a cracking shot. That was my moment. We had travelled in to see him and, with the latecomers still arriving, he had me turning to my dad with a "Did you see that" look. Edwards had taken a pass from Viollet and strode forward like an unstoppable giant before shooting past Kelsey from 25 yards. There were eight more goals in a fantastic match, but Duncan's, and his overall performance, are all I really remember. Afterwards, I just couldn't get it out of my head how good United were. Duncan was marvellous. Everything he did comes back to me as if it was yesterday. Such strength, such poise. We are talking about a long time ago - nearly 40 years - but I can still see him, and that tremendous power of his, even now. He was only 21, but already he had played for England 18 times, and there were far fewer internationals played in those days. I was always Tottenham through and through, and it was not so much the Busby Babes as the Spurs Double side that gave me a feeling for how I wanted to play the game, but I stood there that day thinking Edwards was a wonderful player, and that I wanted to play like him. United were the best around at the time, and he was their star man. I had heard tales of this real-life Roy of the Rovers a few years before. People at Chelsea spoke of a Youth Cup tie against United. Chelsea had an outstanding team that day, Jimmy Greaves and Peter Brabrook included, but the story goes that a storm broke during the game. Edwards scored two goals playing at centre-forward, then when United turned round at half-time, and had the storm against them, they played him at centre-half, and he won everything. He was blessed with an all-round ability no one had ever seen before. This was a guy who played for England at 18, unheard of in those days. Physically, he was an impressive specimen, with legs like tree trunks, which gave him unmistakable power. He usually played at left-half, but centre-half or centre-forward was no problem for him because he had everything. He was a great tackler, he was a good passer, he scored goals and he was a rock in defence. He was left-footed, but he could use the right, too. It was exciting to look at him and think how good he was going to be, and for him to be cut down like that was too tragic for words. No one can know what he might have achieved had he lived and gone on. It is a great disappointment to me, not knowing what he might have become. He was potentially the greatest player I've seen. Duncan played in the same position as Bobby Moore, and we'll never know what might have happened in 1966 if he had still been around. He would have been only 29. Perhaps Bobby would have got in the team in another position, because he was a great player, too, but you would never have picked Moore in front of Edwards. Duncan had the edge everywhere, with his remarkable power, pace and strength in the air. Quite simply, Duncan Edwards had the lot. http://www.red11.org/mufc/edwards.htm

Subject: Schmeichel seals Sporting switch «« Peter Schmeichel has completed his move to Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon, according to the club's director Paulo Abreu. The Danish stopper moves to Portugal after eight trophy-laden seasons at Old Trafford that culminated in the historic Treble. The former United skipper is believed to have agreed a two year deal. Sporting Lisbon have been starved of success for too long and see the free transfer of the Dane as a instrumental move as they aim for the Portuguese title. Although they have not won that for 17 years, they will compete in next season's UEFA Cup and the offer of European football helped persuade Schmeichel to make the Lisbon switch. The former Brondby 'keeper was also linked with clubs in Italy, France and Spain, but it was SportingÕsÕ ability to offer him a £3.5m two-year package including a signing on fee which sealed the deal.

Subject: THEY ALL WANT FERGIE ALEX FERGUSON has become the most wanted man in the country. Manchester United's 57-year-old manager is in demand after leading the club to an historic treble and becoming soccer's latest knight. He has even been offered a cameo part in the next series of Rowan Atkinson's Blackadder as a Scottish king. The Old Trafford boss is also wanted as a guest on all television's chat shows, with Frank Skinner prepared to pay a record fee. Ferguson has been offered the Freedom of Glasgow, his native city. And that has stung Manchester into action, with town hall chiefs revealing that they also intend to honour Sir Alex's achievements. They plans talks with the United boss this week, following his holiday in the south of France. Ferguson, already a freeman of Aberdeen, is also being inundated with pleas for personal appearances. But, though he is amused at the attempt to involve him in cult programme Blackadder, Fergie is set to politely decline that invitation - and most of the others. He'll be selective in taking up any offers because United are facing the most demanding season in their history. In addition to defending the European Cup, the Premier League title and the FA Cup, they are also chasing the Worthington Cup, the European Super Cup, the World Club Championship - and they are also considering taking part in the eight-club World Team Championship in Brazil in January. And Fergie, hungry for even more honours, is adamant that he won't be distracted by outside pressures and invitations - no matter how well intended.

Subject: Brazil next for United (Independent on Sunday) Tim Vickery in Rio de Janeiro finds a new threat to the champions After seeing off Internazionale and Juventus on the way to their European crown, Manchester United will face another "Italian" challenge when they take on the South American champions in the World Club Championship in Tokyo on 30 November. On Wednesday Palmeiras of Brazil won the Copa Libertadores, the continent's equivalent of the Champions' League, with a penalty shoot-out victory over Deportivo Cali of Colombia. Formed in 1914 by some of the Italian immigrants who flooded into Sao Paulo at the start of the century, Palmeiras were originally called Palestra Italia. The name was changed during the Second World War, but ties with the old country are still strong - they are sponsored by the Italian dairy products giant Parmalat. The new Brazil coach Wanderley Luxemburgo established his credentials by twice winning the national championship with Palmeiras, when he employed the type of flowing football traditionally associated with the club, known as "The Academy" of Brazilian football. The current coach Luis Felipe Scolari has different ideas, stressing the importance of traditional British virtues such as team spirit, will to win, tight marking and a potent aerial threat. Just a few days before Manchester United's day of glory in Barcelona, Palmeiras won a Brazilian cup tie in similar circumstances. With three minutes to go they needed two goals - and got them both from corners. Such resilience has served them well in their passage through Brazil's insane calendar. In just four and a half months they have clocked up 50 games. Last Friday they missed out on making the final of the Brazilian Cup, losing a penalty shoot-out. Two days later they finally wilted in the first leg of the final of the Sao Paulo championship. They lost 3-0, and have a huge task facing them in today's second leg. It was all worth it, though, for Wednesday's victory which brought them the Copa Libertadores for the first time in their history. The game provided an eloquent summary of the two sides of South American football. The first half was a delight; holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg, Deportivo Cali defended deep, but occasionally struck out with richly inventive counter-attacks. Meanwhile, Palmeiras showed the variety of their game, threatening both with crosses and well-constructed passing moves. But a potentially great second half descended into farce. Weak refereeing left unchecked an abundance of time-wasting, a sequence of fouls and an excess of ill-will. Palmeiras took advantage of what little football there was to win 2-1, and with no away-goals rule, the tie went straight to penalties. Palmeiras were worthy winners and, providing they can keep their team together, will provide a stiff test for Alex Ferguson's side. They have an outstanding young keeper in Marcos, a Roy Keane lookalike who defends his goal with all the zeal of the Irishman. World Cup centre- back Junior Baiano commands the defence with his combination of elegance and mad lapses. The midfield features the solidity of Cesar Sampaio and Zinho, a World Cup winner five years ago, no longer as fast as he was but with a shrewd brain and a lovely left foot. Up front is the little-and-large pairing of the quicksilver Paulo Nunes and the rumbustious Oseas. And the star of the show operates just behind them - the 21-year-old attacking midfielder Alex, who is one of the brightest young hopes of the Brazilian game. Stopping his namesake from running riot could be a headache for Ferguson on 30 November.
