Subject: Ferguson prepares to absorb capital punishment Ian Whittell Saturday August 21, 1999 Sir Alex Ferguson looked forward to tomorrow's Highbury showdown and predicted another classic title race between Manchester United and Arsenal. The campaign may only be three games old but United's manager is already glancing towards the capital for the main challengers in the Premiership. Although Ferguson is not ruling out the wealthy foreign aristocrats at Chelsea, it is Arsène Wenger's Arsenal that will again provide the major test for United. Ferguson goes into tomorrow's match having won only once in the last nine league, cup and Charity Shield meetings with the Gunners - and that courtesy of Ryan Giggs' astonishing extra-time decider in last season's FA Cup semi-final. But Ferguson denies that Arsenal hold a psychological edge over his treble winners. "Any time a London team gets four good results against us in a row, that's regarded as a triumph," he said. "But I don't think there is any question of them having anything over us. If there was, it would have manifested itself in the semi-finals last year. "But there is no doubt Arsenal have been the most consistent challenger to us in the decade and that rivalry is what has made it such a great league the last two years. They are certainly going to be up there again this season, Chelsea also. "The last one or two seasons, the title races have been tense, and two of our five titles have come in the last game. It's such a hard league, you wouldn't bet against it going to the last game again this year. "Arsenal have been our most consistent challengers. They have won five trophies in the 90s, including the Double two years ago. They have developed their game in different ways over the last couple of years and a lot of that is down to the type of players they have. Kanu coming in is going to mean they play differently to how they did with Anelka." Ferguson will resume efforts to complete a new signing before the European deadline on August 31 - with a centre-half a priority given long-term injuries to Ronny Johnsen, David May and Gary Neville. Ferguson said: "These injuries are a residue of last season. Gary needs a good rest having played through his injuries last season. Ronny had a 'cleaning-up' job done on his knee at the end of last season but that just hasn't worked. We're reviewing what we should do, whether we should operate or just put him through rehab. We will probably make a decision in the next two or three days but he could be out for three or four months." United report no fresh injury problems although Mark Bosnich's groin complaint rules him out of the Highbury game. His place will go to Raimond van der Gouw as the only change to the line-up that started last week's 2-0 win over Leeds United.

Subject: Arsenal v Man United - Team News & Stats Highbury, Sunday 22nd August 1999. kick-off 4pm FA Carling Premiership review * * * UK TV: match will be live on Sky Sports Non-UK TV: US - live on Fox Sports pay-per-view, 11am EST/8am PST Africa - live on SuperSport One/SuperSport International at 17:00 Central African Time. Australia - live on Fox Sports, midnight Sunday For other countries, and details on the above, check out the non-UK TV FAQ * * * Arsenal team news: Both Emmanuel Petit and Dennis Bergkamp picked up injuries against Sunderland, and were withdrawn from their midweek international squads to give them a chance. It is certain that Manu will miss the game (although the long-to-middle-term prognosis is much better than previously fearde - he may only miss another week or so) but that there's a reasonable chance Dennis will be fit. There is some hope that Tony Adams may return for the next game (Bradford), but no more than a very slim chance of his making this one. Nigel Winterburn was injured for Sunderland and replaced by Silvinho at left back (and by Lee Dixon as captain), but is expected to return this time. Silvinho may well move up into midfield to take Marc Overmars place as the winger is still not ready to return. TeamTalk reckon David Seaman will return for this game. New boy Davor Suker has his work permit now, and is fit. But sadly his Croatian national team commitments will keep him busy and there's no chance of him playing for us till Bradford. Man Utd team news: Keeper Mark Bosnich looks certain to miss the game. He sustained a recurrence of a groin injury against Leeds last Saturday and could be out for a month. Ronny Johnson is out injured and facing a risky operation. The best he can hope for is a return in the new year. Wes Brown is also going to be out for a long time, and David May has strained ligaments which'll keep him out for a month. Gary Neville, who hasn't played since the Jampions League final, will according to the official ManUtd site be training all week and playing in a training match at the weekend. So presumably he won't be fit for Sunday. They also say that Jesper Blomqvist is "well on the road to recovery" and that Beckham, Giggs, and Yorke will all be fit. United's defensive problems have led to speculation in the press that they'll be making a move for Villa's Ugo Ehiogu. * * * Head-to-Head Arsenal vs Manchester_United stats & comments by Derek Brownjohn.

That was only one of 3 domestic defeats suffered by Arsenal that championship winning season, and came soon after Arsenal were branded the greater villains during the brawl which my perhaps clouded memory seems to recall was started when McLair and Irwin laid into Winterburn with their boots as he lay on the ground.

Subject: United in for Barcelona's Bogarde? United have reportedly been in talks with Barcelona today over the possible pre-European deadline signing of Dutch defender Winston Bogarde. United scout Martin Ferguson together with football agent and former Barca striker Steve Archibald have been in Spain to define the Catalan club's asking price. However, any potential deal appears to depend on whether they can find a replacement for the ex-Ajax defender in the next week or so. Bogarde may be drafted into coach Louis van Gaal's starting eleven for the opening match of the Spanish league season this weekend because of a crippling injury and suspension list. United need defensive cover quickly before the Champions' League transfer deadline at the end of August but thankfully Jaap Stam and Henning Berg both returned from midweek internationals unscathed.

Subject: Villa's Gregory says NO GO UGO ASTON Villa boss John Gregory insisted last night that he will fight to stop in-demand defender Ugo Ehiogu moving to Manchester United. United manager Alex Ferguson has been watching Villa's former England Under-21 skipper. But Gregory has no intention of letting Ehiogu join former team-mates Dwight Yorke and Mark Bosnich at Old Trafford. Gregory said: "I just have to convince my Board that it is right to leave millions of pounds worth of talent on the bench."

Subject: TEDDY DARLING OF THE STRETFORD END Manchester United fans have finally taken Teddy Sheringham to their hearts by voting him into top spot in a club popularity poll. The England striker pulled in more votes than David Beckham, Andy Cole and Jaap Stam to take the crown of United's most improved player in a poll run by the club's official magazine. It is a boost for Sheringham who bore the brunt of supporters' criticism two seasons ago when United won nothing following the departure of Eric Cantona, the player he was bought to replace. There was some consolation for Beckham, voted Umbro player of the year, while Ryan Giggs took the award for goal of the season following his match-winning strike in the FA Cup semi-final replay against Arsenal. The magazine gave an unwanted accolade to referee David Elleray, voting him worst official to handle a United game. © PA Sporting Life

Subject: JOHNSEN KNEE OP FEAR FOR UNITED Sir Alex Ferguson will wait for a full assessment of Ronny Johnsen's knee injury before deciding to plunge into the transfer market. The Manchester United manager is down to the bare bones at the heart of his defence following the injuries to Johnsen, Wes Brown and David May. United's medical team are assessing Johnsen's injury and they fear he may require surgery, which would rule him out for the best part of the season. If that is the case, Sir Alex is prepared to buy another defender to provide cover for his backline. Sir Alex will soldier on if Johnsen does not need an operation because Gary Neville is due to play his comeback game this weekend following his groin injury. Sir Alex said: "We'll assess the situation because of Ronny Johnsen. The latest on Ronny is that we are considering whether an operation will be beneficial or whether we should carry on with the remedial treatment. "We've just got to wait and see what happens with Ronny before I decide what to do." United have already been linked with moves for Barcelona's Winston Bogarde and Aston Villa's Ugo Ehiogu and Sir Alex said: "There's always going to be speculation and we can't do anything about that. "If someone has a nose bleed there is speculation that we are going to replace him. "However we've got to look at it realistically and decide what do we need in terms of our player pool because the Champions League starts in just over a month's time."
