Subject: GRAZ COACH: PRESSURE IS ON UNITED Sturm Graz coach Ivica Osim believes his players will revel in the role of underdogs against Manchester United. Sturm are rank outsiders going into the game against United in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadion, which is named after the city's most famous son, and this suits Osim just fine. He claims all the pressure is on the Treble winners going into the Champions League Group D game. Osim says one of the reasons why his side lost 2-0 in their opening game in Marseille last week was because they felt under pressure. "Of course it's an advantage that no-one expects you to win," he said. "There's no doubt that Manchester United are the favourites. "Even our own fans do not expect us to win and they are just happy to see Manchester United and hope that it's a good game. That means all the pressure is on Manchester United to win. "In our first game in Marseille last week the players felt under pressure to play well and I think that meant they were not able to show their true game. "The pressure will not be on my players in this game and I hope that will enable them to show everyone what they really can do. I will not need to motivate my players and the mere fact that we are playing Manchester United will be enough."

Subject: Cantona lined up for Old Trafford comeback By David Bond Former Manchester United hero Eric Cantona is set for an Old Trafford omeback in a testimonial game for United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The French star has confirmed he will take his place in an all-star World XI on 11 October alongside ex-United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel who quit the European Cup winners at the end of last season. It will be Cantona's first appearance at Old Trafford since his farewell night in August 1998 when he captained a European XI in a benefit match for victims of the 1958 Munich air disaster. Lining up alongside Cantona against United will be fellow Frenchman and World Cup winner Zinedine Zidane, Fiorentina striker Gabriella Batistuta and AC Milan's George Weah. Part of the proceeds from Ferguson's testimonial year are to be donated to charity Street to Stadium which helps provide sports facilities for deprived youngsters in Manchester. Meanwhile, Roy Keane today declared himself fit to step back into the Champions League arena for United against Sturm Graz in Austria tomorrow. The United skipper, who missed the Champions Cup final and the clash with Croatia Zagreb at Old Trafford last week, has had intensive treatment on a troublesome knee. Keane said: 'I have trained for the last three or four days now, so there's no problem - touch wood.' Midfielder Nicky Butt is also expected to recover from his groin injury for the Group D game in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium while David Beckham and Andy Cole should also shrug off minor niggles.

Subject: DANNY'S THE BOY/JOHN'S BIG BREAK?/RYAN'S GIGS DANNY'S THE BOY Monday, September 20, 1999 11:54 Danny Webber has made the step up to the Under-19s almost seamlessly. Last season he scored 17 goals for the Under-17s, and his brace in the 2-0 win over Barnsley on Saturday helped the elder team to their second win in a row, following the two defeats that opened their season. The Under-17s also won at Oakwell training centre, running out 4-1 victors to stretch their winning start to four matches out of four. JOHN'S BIG BREAK? Tuesday, September 21,1999 11:49 Young United defender John O'Shea has been included in United's squad to take on Sturm Graz in Austria on Wednesday. The 18-year-old, from Waterford in Ireland, signed professional terms in August 1998, and made 11 appearances in the Reserves last season, scoring one goal. At six feet three, he is as tall as Jaap Stam, and is tipped for great things in the future. He will provide cover for Stam and Henning Berg at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium in Graz. RYAN'S GIGS Sunday, September 19, 1999 06:00 Jim Ryan has been spotted in the manager's dug-out at matches a lot recently. Fergie's aim with the chewing gum is as lethal as ever! Since Steve McClaren joined as assistant manager, Jim has been on hand with years of experience of United making life hard for themselves, and has been helping coach the ever-growing first-team squad. But what do we call him now? Assistant assistant manager?! You there? We caught up with him to clarify the situation for us. "With the advent of the squad system, first teams have so many more players now, too many for one coach to bollock really," explained Jim, who took charge of the team back in December which was like Alex Ferguson attending a family funeral. He won't appreciate us reminding you that the match against Middlesbrough was the last time that the Reds lost in competitive action! "Steve and I will split them into more manageable groups, attacking players and defending players. If you want to work on defensive play, you don't want Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke in that group, unless you are having a laugh. 1 player is better managed by two coaches rather than one. "We mix it up a bit. It's good that they hear a fresh voice doubting their parentage. The kids sometimes break down and cry, but it's good for them to hear it anyway," he continued. For someone who's been in charge of the Reserves for the past seven years, it's quite a change. But it's one he's relishing. "I really enjoy it. The tension of the matches is getting to me though! Jordi once told me that football would be a great sport were it not for all the games! The last 15 minutes of the Liverpool match were loaded with tension, and you're absolutely drenched in scouse spittle at the end, but it's a fantastic feeling. "The tension is there with the Reserves too. Everybody in football likes to earn, but it is different in the first team. The atmosphere at the first team games is obviously different, and it does take more out of you. I hear that Hargreaves bloke in the main stand most games, and I can tell you he can throw a pie very accurately from long distance. "When it's over, I enjoy it, but it's too tense while it's happening to enjoy it. You're always worried that something's going to go wrong, someone's going to get nutmegged. You have too many things to think about, so that takes the edge off watching it purely for enjoyment," he said. Jim is starting to take a back seat with the second team, following his demotion and the arrival of a familiar face at The Cliff. "We've got Mike Phelan who's started taking the Reserves now for goose-stepping practice, so I'm sort of part-time now. I'll butt in sometimes on training sessions, and I've been to all their games so far, so I'm keeping a close eye, as it's proven a very useful aid to the first team, bringing players through," claimed the Scot. Jim's step up has coincided with the best start to a season under Fergie. He's not the type of man to take all the glory, he's just happy to do as he is told by the boss. "This is the best start we've had since I've been here. When I came back from America and was following the team around, they won the first 13 matches of the season, before drawing at mighty Luton. "The team are confident, so that helps, but they are just a good team. That's what's taken them to the top of the League." That, and a lot of top quality coaching!

Subject: Fergie charged - MEN SIR Alex Ferguson is to appear in court after allegedly driving on the hard shoulder of a motorway. The Manchester United boss is due to appear at Bury on October 5. The incident, which he denies, is alleged to have happened on the M602 in Eccles on February 26. If he is found guilty he could face a fine and three penalty points. There are occasions when driving or stopping on the hard shoulder is allowed. These are: If a vehicle breaks down, lack of petrol or water or because of an accident, illness or other emergency. A driver can also stop to recover an object which has fallen on the motorway or to help another person.

Subject: New Bid on the Horizon? Personal Note..... Following reports some months ago of the JP McManus consortium's interest in taking over the club, the Manchester Evening News of 20 September resurrects the story, stating that there is likely to be a move after United announce their year's results on 4 October. A week ago, the shares were just above 200p, while today they closed at 224.75p to buy. The MEN says that to gain control, McManus would have to come up with 150m more than the 623m accepted by the board from BSkyB a year ago. At that time, the shares went to over 240p on expectation that the bid would go through, so simple arithmetic tells me they should approach the 300p level if this bid becomes a reality. So far so good for the shareholders. The good news from this on the football front is that McManus is apparently good mates with Fergie, and (to quote the MEN) "...one of the major moves the Irishman is planning is reportedly the installation of manager Sir Alex Ferguson as Old Trafford supremo." If all this is true, then I would vote with hands and feet for McManus to take over - after loading up with as many shares as my stretched finances could afford! Come on you Reds - get buying those shares!! Cheers, John Whitney

          If ever they are playing in your town
          You must get to that football ground
          Take a lesson come to see
          Football taught by Matt Busby
          Manchester, Manchester United
          A bunch of bouncing Busby Babes
          They deserve to be knighted
