Subject: - Old Trafford by Pat Jennings I had to take my lad to a kids party on Saturday in Sale and couldn't resist popping down the road to see what was going off. The building work has now got into full swing and the forecourt is now completely encircled with a big RED wooden fence. Two huge meccano type steel structures are being assembled on the car park on the other side of the new road that goes round the forecourt. Despite all the work the place was heaving with fans, it 'almost' looked like a matchday. I went in the Megastore to buy the Treble video (cheaper than in the shops) and when we finally got to the checkout to pay, there was a power cut and everything went off. We stood around for 10 minutes (contemplating doing a runner with our wares) and they eventually told everyone to go to one till back in the main store bit. Each queue was now about 10 deep and I realised, as they all legged it towards this one till, that I would be at the back!! However, the nice girl on the till, must've fancied me or something ;-))) and took all my stuff with her and did me first (thank you). The power was still off when we left, I wonder if it was the same builder who cut the wires before the 'ammers game? Maybe it's some sad scouser (well some of them must have jobs) whose trying to sabotage the rebuilding work.....

Subject: Palmeiras players attack opponent - hilarious Football - Edilson's antics are too much for Brazil - The Corinthians striker Edilson was dropped from Brazil's Copa America squad yesterday for juggling with the ball while play was in progress during Sunday's Paulista Championship final against Palmeiras. His antics incensed the Palmeiras players so much that three of them attacked him, a pitched battle ensued and the match was abandoned. Edilson performed his party piece after scoring the goal which levelled the match 2-2 in the second leg, giving Corinthians an unassailable 5-2 aggregate lead with 15 minutes left. Edilson received a pass in midfield, juggled with the ball and rolled it down his back. The Palmeiras left-back Junior steamed into Edilson, who was then attacked by striker Paulo Nunes and the team captain Zinho. After briefly retaliating he fled to the dressing-room. The Brazil coach, Wanderley Luxemburgo, who had ended 28-year-old Edilson's four-year exile from the national team, held him responsible for the scenes and dropped him for the Copa America, which begins in Paraguay later this month. The Palmeiras coach, Luis Felipe Scolari, known as Big Phil, later became involved in a row with Edilson during a television discussion. Manchester United - The Legend: http://manunited.net

Subject: United in fixtures farce By Ivan Ewtale Tuesday, June 22, 1999 The desperation behind England's bid for the 2006 World Cup reached almost farcical levels last night with the revelation that Manchester United will be able to dictate their own fixture list next season. United's participation in the inaugural World Club Championship is seen by the Government as crucial to their hopes of receiving FIFA's vote for the World Cup. Sports Minister Tony Wanks has been heavily involved in overturning United's initial reluctance to take part in the eight-team tournament in Brazil because of next season's heavily-congested fixture list. As a keen Chelsea fan, Wanks recognises the great opportunity it gives to play havoc with Uniteds season. While the FA and Premier League are unlikely to agree to Wanks's request to let United extend their Premiership season beyond the scheduled May 14 finish, every effort will be made to ease the burden of a fixture list which could comprise more than 70 games. Possible measures include allowing United manager Alex Ferguson to field weakened sides in the Worthington and FA Cups or even let the club withdraw from the Worthington Cup altogether. The Government's fear is that if United don't play in the tournament, which takes place from January 5-14 next year, their place will be taken by Champions League runners-up Bayern Munich, which would place Germany's 2006 bid ahead of England's in the eyes of FIFA President Silva Platter. Bayern cruelly lost the Final in May and their lederhosen-clad followers are still crying in the streets of Bavaria. The World Club Championship is Platter's love-child and the entire FIFA committee, which will announce the destination of the World Cup two months later, will be present in Brazil. A spokesman from the Department of Culture-Vultures, Media and SpoilSports, Wanks' office, said: 'The World Cup bid is an important campaign for the Government, if not that silly Jock and his overpaid players. 'It is an important bid because the World Cup is a very prestigious event to host. It's important to do as much as we can not to antagonise those people making the decision. We have even offered to lick their boots.' United spokesman Ken Ramsden said: 'There are indications that we will be given help with our fixtures next season. We are willing to take part providing we don't end up playing every day of the week towards the end of the season. 'We will hold further talks with the FA next week and we hope a formula can be found which won't have a detrimental effect on our other targets. Giving us a bye into the FA Cup Final, as holders were granted in 1873, would be one option. As for Premier League games, we could fit 4 into June and another couple into July. The alternative is for say, Bradford City to move their home fixture against us to January 6th in Sao Paulo. It would be neutral territory and the vast army of Reds out there would guarantee a sellout. We could meet Coventry in Belo Horizonte on Jan 9th, and maybe Sunderland in Rio De Janeiro on Jan 13th. I'm sure the clubs concerned would love to fly over there for a one-off Premier League game and top up their tans!' A spokesman for Bradford City was unavailable, but an old man standing outside the Ticket Office said 'Eee bah gum! It's reet grand being int' Premier League. A'd walk to Brazil t'see t'Bantams. We won t'cup in 1911 ye knows, me Dad took our whippet t'Final.'
