Barry Comment:
3-0 3-0 3-0 REDS grazed throught the match, EXCELLENT goalkeeping 
performance by Raimond *incl a penalty and a decent free kick saved.
Good to see us back on winning ways after two stalemates.
Now for Southampron & Marseille next Wednesday!

Uniteds unbeaten runs currently stand at:
28 games League
43 games League and Cup
37 games domestic League and Cup

Message from Paul Hinson:
The 40-game record Nottingham Forest hold is 40 games in domestic League
and Cup. United need to remain unbeaten against Southampton/Chelsea/Watford
and whoever we play in the Worthington Cup 3rd Round to beat it.
The League only record is 42 games, against by Forest, and we would need to
avoid defeat up to around January 15 2000 to manage that!

Subject: KEANE GUIDES UNITED TO WIN - Sky Report SK Sturm Graz 0-3 Man Utd by Ben Lyttleton United eased to their first Champions League victory of the new campaign with a 3-0 cruise against Sturm Graz in Austria. The holders' first-half performance, in which Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole scored, sealed the points but one of United's best performances came from Raimond van der Gouw, who was controversially preferred to summer signing Mark Bosnich in goal. But no inclusion was more welcome and no performance more appropriate at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium than that of Keane. United's very own strongman, whose last United performance was in the SuperCup defeat against Lazio on August 27, showed brawn and brain befitting of the European champions' captain. Even Schwarzenegger would have been hard pressed to keep out Keane's 16th-minute opening goal. When Beckham's free-kick cannonned into the wall, the ball fell to the inspirational Irishman whose swerving howitzer from 30 yards screamed its way under Kazimierz Sidorczuk's crossbar. Like the player itself, the shot combined ferociousness with an exquisite quality. Also like Keane, it was spine-tinglingly watchable and devastatingly effective. And most like the skipper, you did not want to get in its way. The goal came after a good opening spell from Graz, who looked to have put behind them a run of form that has not seen them win in six games. They clearly hadn't, and at Keane's prompting United went on to score two more goals in a minute just after the half-hour mark. Dwight Yorke was the next to get in on the act, leaping unmarked to head David Beckham's corner under the body of Sidorczuk. It was a bad goal to concede - and as it squirmed under the keeper, Graz's run of six games without a win looked set to continue. That much was a certainty when Yorke and Cole found themselves two-on-three in the final third. The tricky Trinidadian curled a ball into Cole's path, who took it past the last defender and slipped it inside the near post. 3-0, and nearly an hour still to play. As well as Keane's presence, the English side were boosted by the return of Beckham. Sir Alex Ferguson also kept faith with Jordi Cruyff and recalled Raimond van der Gouw in favour of Mark Bosnich, which he explained by saying: "It was a difficult decision but Raimond's done nothing wrong." The Dutch 36-year-old did everything right when to gather the ball when a cross from the right evaded everyone to allow Tomislav Kocijan a free header at the far post. He was then called into action when captain Ivica Vastic's long-shot looped into his arms. After United's third goal, he made two impressive stops in a minute - firstly diving spectacularly to push away Vastic's curling free-kick and then punching Roman Maehlich's volley to safety. Graz pushed on gamely and Gerald Strafner headed wide just before half-time. But United looked the likelier scorers - and nearly got a fourth when Paul Scholes' impudent reverse pass almost released Cole. Graz conceded 11 goals in two meetings against Real Madrid last year, the same number United put past Brondby. The Austrians could have pulled one back - and forever banned the epithet 'whipping-boys' from their name - just after the break but Vastic sliced his right-footed shot wide. Maehlich had time to curl a long-shot past the post before Neukirchner's effort was stopped by van der Gouw, whose biggest test came after 56 minutes when Phil Neville brought down Kocijan in the area. Vastic stepped up for the spot-kick and struck it terribly. Paceless and down the middle, van der Gouw actually had to dive forward to stop it - and then he made good ground to smother Vastic's lunge for the rebound. One sour note for United was the booking of Beckham. There was only going to be one outcome to his constant bickering with Maehlich, and before both players' yellows became red, the Graz number six was substituted. Graz still contrived to create, and squander, more chances in a second period in which United introduced Wilson, Sheringham and Solskjaer. The goalscorers from last May's epic final could not increase United's tally, but it mattered little. The performance was professional rather than spectacular, but for Ferguson the returns of Keane and Beckham, and the form of van der Gouw, would have been encouraging. A job well done, as attention turns to the home fixture against Southampton at the weekend. Who said the Graz was always greener? Teams: SK Sturm Graz: Sidorczuk, Feldhofer, Foda, Neukirchner, Martens, Mahlich, Schupp, Prilasnig, Vastic, Kocijan, Strafner.

Subject: Teamtalk Report - Reds waltz through Graz challenge «« First half goals from Keane, Yorke and Cole saw United coast to an easy 3-0 win tonight in their Champions League clash in Austria. Sturm Graz had their chances, including a second half penalty saved by van der Gouw, but United's superior finishing was too much for the Austrian champions. The win for United sees them go second in Champions League group D with four points, two points behind Marseille whose 2-1 win away to Croatia Zagreb this evening sees them top with maximum points. United meet the French side at Old Trafford next Wednesday night. Raimond van der Gouw won the vote over Mark Bosnich to start tonight's game in the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium, with Bosnich taking his increasingly familiar place on the United bench. As expected, Roy Keane and David Beckham returned to the Reds midfield after their respective injuries, while Jordi Cruyff replaced Ryan Giggs on the left. Andy Cole returned to the starting line-up alongside Dwight Yorke, with Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back on the United bench. After a scrappy opening, the Reds had an early chance to take the lead when Beckham was given a free-kick just outside the box, but his effort curled a yard wide of Sidorczuk's right-hand post. A few minutes later, Graz should have taken the lead. Neukirchner's cross found the head of Kocijan, whose downward header was straight at van der Gouw. Despite the Austrians' greater possession, it was United who took the lead just after the quarter of an hour mark. Beckham's free-kick was headed clear as far as Roy Keane standing twenty-five yards out; the United skipper controlled the ball with his first touch, while his second sent a viciously swerving right-foot shot past Sidorczuk off the underside of the bar. The Reds doubled their advantage just past the half hour mark. Beckham's corner was met by the head of Yorke whose glanced effort squirmed under Sidorczuk and past a defender on the line. Two minutes later it was game over when Yorke's curled pass found Andy Cole, who chested the ball down, held off Feldhofer, and poked the ball beyond Sidorczuk to put United three up and coasting. To the Austrians' credit they refused to throw the towel in, and van der Gouw saved well from Vastic's free-kick and then from Mahlich's piledriver, before Strafner headed wide just before the break. In the opening minutes of the second half, David Beckham was extremely fortunate to escape at least a booking after lashing out at Kocijan with his boot. Graz continued to look the side most likely to score next, with Vastic wasting a great chance by blazing wide when well placed, Mahlich firing a 30 yard effort just wide, and then Neukirchner denied by van der Gouw. The Austrians were given a golden opportunity to pull a goal back on 55 minutes when Phil Neville fouled Kocijan in the area and a penalty was awarded, but Vastic's pitiful spot-kick was saved easily by van der Gouw who then blocked the rebound. Sir Alex Ferguson used all three subs in Graz, with Mark Wilson replacing Keane on the hour, Sheringham coming on for Cruyff, and Solskjaer taking Cole's place. United rarely threatened to add to their lead - Yorke had a shot tipped wide by Sidorczuk, Sheringham shot wide and Beckham's late free-kick was saved by the Polish 'keeper. Beckham's other achievement in the second half was to get himself booked, not for his earlier misdemeanour, but for being the innocent party in an attempt by Mahlich to rob him of his shirt before the end of the game. All in all, a very comfortable night for the Reds, and the chance to go top of the group in a week's time when Marseille come to Old Trafford.

Subject: KEANE INJURY WORRY FOR UNITED - Sporting Life Report By David Anderson, PA Sport, Graz Manchester United's 3-0 Champions League victory over Sturm Graz was achieved at cost after Roy Keane suffered a recurrence of his knee injury. The United skipper has only just returned following three weeks out, but he came off in the second half at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadion clash in the second half after he felt his injury again. Keane, who scored United's opening goal after 16 minutes, is doubtful for Saturday's Premiership home clash with Southampton. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "Roy Keane felt his knee and that's why we took him off. Hopefully he will be fit for Saturday but you don't know." Ferguson refused to run down the quality of the Austrian outfit after the game. He said: "I think they are a fair side. I think they have good quality in their side. I don't think they have a great deal of pace about them in the last attacking third. "They did produce a lot of good passing that penetrated us and I think we were a bit fortunate not to lose goals." If Keane does not recover in time for Saturday's home Premiership clash with Southampton, his next target will be the Champions League meeting with Marseille at Old Trafford next Wednesday. "We hope he (Keane) will be fit for next Wednesday and it's just a matter of hoping that it will get better as time goes on. He did well to play tonight." David Beckham was fortunate not to be sent off for kicking Tomislav Kocijan just after half-time right in front of the two dug-outs - but Ferguson claimed he did not see the incident. Sturm's diplomatic coach Ivica Osim also claimed he did not have a good view of it. Osim said "I didn't really see the incident at the beginning of the second half but I think it's just part of the game and it actually helped stimulate our team and the spectators as well." Ferguson pointed the finger at Graz's Roman Mahlich over a later incident which resulted in him and Beckham getting booked. "I think the lad tried to go for him (Beckham) and tried to get him booked and the referee knew he had to balance it after booking the Sturm Graz player by booking Beckham as well." United recorded their first Champions League Group D win with three goals in 17 first-half minutes. Following Keane's opener, Dwight Yorke netted on 31 minutes and Andy Cole on 33. Ferguson was delighted with the victory and he said: "We're pleased to get our first win and I thought the first half was very very good. "I thought our attacking play was great and I thought Yorke and Cole were excellent. They were always a threat to them." Sturm rallied in the second half and should have scored when Raimond van der Gouw saved Ivica Vastic's weak penalty. Ferguson said: "In the second half in the first 20 minutes we could have lost five goals when Sturm Graz started to penetrate our penalty box very well." Ferguson has now set his players a target of seven points from the remaining four games to qualify. "It gets us off the mark and we have now got four points," he said. "We need another seven from our four games to qualify." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: STURM GRAZ v MAN UTD MIN-BY-MIN Final score: Sturm Graz 0 Manchester United 3 90 mins: The final whistle goes and United's players celebrate their first victory of this season's European campaign. 89 mins: The fourth official raises his board to show three minutes of injury time. 87 mins: All is quiet again in Austria, the home supporters resigned to defeat. 85 mins: Beckham's resulting shot from the free-kick is on target but is dealt with easily by the keeper. 84 mins: Solskjaer runs at the home defence and is brought unceremoniously crashing down to earth by Franco Foda, who receives a booking for his troubles. 83 mins: Beckham's effort from range sails way over the bar – much to the delight of his barrackers in the crowd. 82 mins: Sheringham shoots, but drags it wide of Sidorczuk's right-hand post. 78 mins: Vastic goes on the offensive and the ball breaks loose to Reinmayr in a good position but his shot is wide of the mark. 76 mins: Cole comes off and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets a taste of the action. 74 mins: Hannes Reinmayr comes on in place of the agitated (and shortly to be dismissed had he not been replaced) Mahlich. 72 mins: Beckham and Mahlich fight for possession in the middle of the park – there's a spot of `afters' and both are booked as a result. 70 mins: Strafner finds some space and tries an ambitious shot from a narrow angle which goes straight into the side netting. 68 mins: Kocijan clips in a good free-kick into the United area but the ball glances wide of Van Der Gouw's right stick. 67 mins: Teddy Sheringham replaces the ineffective Jordi for the visitors. 65 mins: The Sturm defence back off as Yorke makes ground inside the Austrians' half. Yorke eventually pulls the trigger and Sidorczuk has to dive full length to his right to make a good save. Two corners follow but Sturm survive. 64 mins: Industrious work from Denis Irwin on the left flank wins the visitors a corner. Beckham - still being booed by the Austrian fans from that earlier incident - puts on the head of Stam but his header drops harmlessly into the hands of Sidorczuk. 61 mins: With the game virtually safe United replace Keane with Mark Wilson. 59 mins: Walking pace now for United as they play keep-ball outside Sturm's box. 55 mins: Vastic steps up to take the spot-kick but side-foots an awful shot straight along the ground to Van Der Gouw. 54 mins: PENALTY - STURM GRAZ - Phil Neville fells Kocijan from behind inside his own area for a certain penalty. 53 mins: Neukirchner troubles the United keeper with another good effort, which is palmed away. 50 mins: Roman Mahlich unleashes a terrific 30-yarder which is inches wide of the upright. 48 mins: Gilbert Prilasnig threads an inch-perfect pass through to Vastic, but his shot flies past the intersection of Van Dr Gouw's goal with only the big United keeper to beat. 47 mins: Tomislav Tomica Kocijan checks Beckham on the half-way line - the United midfielder reacts by kicking out at his opponent and is fortunate not to be booked. 46 mins: Manchester United start the second half - neither team shows any changes from the first period. 45 mins: The ref blows the whistle on a highly satisfactory first 45 minutes for Alex Ferguson's players. 44 mins: The fourth official shows one minute of first-half injury-time. 41 mins: It's United's turn to show some style and an audacious back-heel from Paul Scholes almost sets up Yorke inside the area. Fortunately for the home side Sidorczuk is alert and pounces at the feet of the United striker. 40 mins: Gerald Strafner hits a speculative effort after being teed up by Schupp and for a moment Van Der Gouw looks in trouble, but the ball rises a few yards over. 36 mins: The Austrians are suddenly buoyed into life and win a free-kick on the left edge of United's box. The resulting shot sees Vastic force a good diving save from Van Der Gouw. 35 mins: The Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadium is silent. It looks like Hasta La Vista for the home team. 33 mins: GOAL - COLE - Yorke finds his strike partner bearing down on goal. Cole controls it on his chest and pokes in United's third. 31 mins: GOAL - YORKE - United make it two-nil in the simplest of fashions, Yorke climbing above everyone to head home a Beckham corner. 29 mins: Another Beckham free-kick, this time from 40 yards out, wide right, causes problems in the home area. Andy Cole has a shot which is charged down and after the ball pings around like a pinball for a few moments in the box Sturm unconvincingly clear their lines. 26 mins: Jan-Pieter Martens makes postive inroads into the United back line, but his low shot is weak and wide. 25 mins: The game is in the middle of a quiet spell, the wind having been well and truly taken out of the Austrians' sails by that United goal. 23 mins: Berg and Yorke suffer a clash of heads from a Beckham corner, with Yorke coming off worst and requiring a couple of minutes' treatment. 19 mins: Jordi Cruyff checks inside and finds room to shoot - unfortunately his finish doesn't match a neat build-up and the shot goes high and wide. 17 mins: GOAL - ROY KEANE - Beckham's free-kick hits the wall, but the ball comes out to Keane almost 30 yards from goal and his swerving effort goes over the head of Sidorczuk, who really should have made a save. 15 mins: Dwight Yorke is scythed down to give Beckham another opportunity from long range. 13 mins: Sturm Graz are dominating the early possession without managing to carve out any clear-cut chances. 11 mins: Stam commits another foul, bringing down Vastic 35 yards from goal. Again the United defender escapes with nothing more than a few words from the Italian referee. 8 mins: The Austrians catch United on the break, with Vastic proving to be an early threat. The ball appears to bounce up onto the hand of Henning Berg but appeals for a penalty are waved away. To compound the home side's misery they don't even receive what looked like a certain corner. 6 mins: Gunther Neukirchner maurades down the left wing and flights a dangerous-looking cross into United's box which Vastic directs straight at Van Der Gouw. 4 mins: United break and win a free-kick just outside the box. David Beckham lines it up from a central location on the edge of the D but the England man's effort curves away from Kazimierz Sidorczuk's right-hand post. 2 mins: Jaap Stam body-checks Ivica Vastic half way inside his own half but escapes an early yellow card. 1 min: The hosts' Markus Schupp has the first shot in anger, but the ball sails harmlessly over Raimond Van Der Gouw's goal. 1 min: Sturm Graz get tonight's Group D encounter under way. © PA Sporting Life

Subject: A winger! :))) EX RED Willie Morgan rates this guy From: Barry Leeming Man Utd monitor Maresca «« Sir Alex Ferguson, who tried to sign Enzo Maresca before the young Italian moved to the Hawthorns, is once again tracking him. Sources in Manchester report that Ferguson has been monitoring the 19 year old's progress and furthermore that he likes what he has seen. Maresca has been linked with clubs all over the place recently (Arsenal, Parma, Lazio etc etc) but he has so far been more than happy to remain with the Baggies. However if he continues to do well it will surely be only a matter of time before his relationship with the club is tested to the full. Sir Alex Ferguson has a formidable reputation for always getting his man and the fear amongst Baggies' supporters must be that he is now seriously targeting Maresca. Certainly that is what they are saying in Manchester at the moment.

Subject: Euro Final posters From: RED KELLY You may remember a few weeks ago Barry posted a website address which was selling Euro Final posters. I contacted the photographer privately and have arranged a more favourable rate for listees. The prints will now sell at half price, so they will be £5 (five pounds sterling). I now have a supply of the prints here and will handle the distribution cheaper too. The print is a montage of two panoramic photos of the team celebrations taken after the European Cup presentation. The prints are excellent quality and I think they are well worth having. The url for the site is still the same (www.sonnet.co.uk/tfa/reds) as are the payment details, it's only the costs which have changed. You will still have to make out a cheque, postal order or money order to T.F.A. and post it to: 'Seeing Red', 73 New Concordia Wharf, Mill Street, London SE1 2BB, England. The new postage and packing costs which will need to be added to the £5 for one print are now: For UK: £1.20 For Europe: £1.80 For rest of the world: £2.80 Orders of multiple prints to be sent to one address can be negotiated with the hotmail account via the website, or you could contact me privately if you'd prefer. I believe the details on the website will be changed asap. Cheers RED KELLY

Subject: BUSY FORTNIGHT FOR PALMEIRAS Tuesday, September 14,1999 15:45 Palmeiras, who United will face in Tokyo in the Intercontinental Cup in November, have been busy on and off the field so far in September. They've played four matches, winning three and drawing one. But, more excitingly, their star striker, Paolo Nunes, was nearly kidnapped after being robbed of his car. Webmaster of the Official Brazilian FA Website, Flavio Yuck, takes us through their September so far. Revenge, finally! After being beaten by archrival St Trinians in last May's Paulista League final, Palmeiras had a convincing 4-1 win against St Trinians on Sunday 12 September. It was a surprising performance, since St Trinians are leading the Brazilian championship, while Palmeiras are lower down the table. Anyway, a 4-1 win against the freckled gymslip-girly outfit was super! Rogerio scored in the very first minute of the match to make it 1-0. In the fifth, a Cesar Salad header made it 2-0. After 10 minutes, Paulo Nowheels scored the third. The crowd couldn't believe their eyes as the rivals coach was gunned down in the dugout by his irate chairman.. In the 34th minute, Paulo Nowheels scored again: 4-0 to Palmeiras. In the second half, with the fans shouting "Stand up if you hate Manu", Palmeiras stopped attacking. St Trinians scored through Jail Bait, but it was too little, too late. It was a day for the Porco fan ("Porco" means pig, the nickname Palmeiras fans call the fat bastard with the drum who eats all the pies). The match saw a good recovery in the Brazilian League table: the club is now in 14th position out of 13 – still badly placed, but now more optimistic for the near future. The last two weeks have not been easy ones for Palmeiras. Brazil played Argentina twice, and international players Dalex and goalkeeper Fartos missed the two club matches. Worse than that, Paulo Nowheels had a "near-kidnapping" on Tuesday 31 August. The striker was going around Sao Partington in his car when two scousers stopped him and told the player to let them in the car. They then recognised Paulo Nowheels, and told him he'd not be kidnapped. They took his car and some money. Paulo Nowheels went to a police station the same night. Two days later, Palmeiras played again. On September 2, they beat Dinner Plate 3-0, with two goals scored by Opeas. At the beginning of 1999, Palmeiras beat Dinner Plate 3-0 in Sao Pendlebury, in the semi-finals of Libertacar Cup. Rivals Cruzeiro were Palmeiras' opponents on Sunday 5. Still without Dalex and Fartos, playing with the national team, the team drew (2-2). Two weeks ago, the two clubs also had a 2-2 draw at the Lookat Hercor Cup. In the 5 September match, Palmeiras had many opportunities to win, but Cruzeiro showed why their team is still unbeatable in the difficult Brazilian championship. After 45 minutes of pure tedium and a goalless draw, Alex Alves scored. Palmeiras recovered when Magazinho - World Cup winner in 1994 - scored with his right fist (he's left handed) in the 66th minute. Palmeiras were looking for a winning goal when Cruzeiro scored again. Marcel Marsou counter-attacked and was stopped by right-back Ze Black Maria, who fouled him in the area. Alex Alves, with an overhead penalty kick, scored his 11th goal of the competition, his second of the match. Tireless and with their spirits high, Palmeiras equalised two minutes later, after Paulo Nowheels received from Evair and juggled the ball into the net: 2-2 the final score. Also this week, Palmeiras travelled to Argentina, where they beat Argentinian side Hacking 4-2 for the Suitusir Cup. After this victory, Palmeiras lead Group A of the Mercosur Cup, with 11 points. Cruzeiro has 7, Dinner Plate 4 points, Hacking remain pointless. The last Palmeiras match in the first stage of the competition will be against Cruzeiro, October 6, in Belis Horizonte. With thanks to Flavio Yuck.

Subject: Solskjaer wanted again «« United have reportedly turned down a seven and a half million pound bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The offer arrived just over 12 months after Spurs agreed a £5.5 million fee with United for the Norwegian, only for Alex Ferguson to persuade the striker to stay at the last minute. Neither club will comment on the report which, although likely to enrage fans who have become sick with transfer speculation about the European Cup final hero, addresses a looming situation at the club. Spurs may not be put off by United's swift reaction and are believed to be mounting a concerted effort to lure the 26-year-old away. Solskjaer's form has suffered from not playing regular club football and the only voices telling him to stay appear to be coming from within Old Trafford. His agent, Rune Hauge, brokered the deal which took Oyvind Leonhardsen to Spurs in the summer and could be lining up more business with Spurs Director of football David Pleat. White Hart Lane boss George Graham is on the lookout for a striker to partner Steffen Iversen - one of Solskjaer's rivals at international level. Norway boss Nils Johan Semb recently denied having told Solskjaer to find a new club where he could be guaranteed a regular place. United fans would be livid if Solskjaer was allowed to leave and the player would, we believe, only do so as a last resort to recover flagging form if he thought he was going stale at the club.
