Subject: Sir Bobby Charlton - Q & A Well I didn't suppose for a minute that there would be any revelations, although wanting to play for a Bill Shankly team takes him off my Xmas card list. And can he honestly say he had as much fun as Georgie Boy!!! The 'Rupert' question has Edwards hands written all over it. Mark Sir Bobby Charlton, 61, played for Manchester United Football Club between 1954 and 1973. He was in the England squad that won the World Cup in 1966, along with his brother Jackie. He was knighted in 1994. He is now director of Manchester United, and leads England's bid to host the World Cup in 2006. What do you think about Rupert Murdoch owning Manchester United? Ben Simon, Norwich Rupert Murdoch doesn't own Manchester United till the Monopolies Commission gives the OK, and it doesn't really worry me much, as the club can and will continue to prosper with or without his involvement. However, if he doesn't succeed with the bid, Manchester United, being a public company, may be open to bids, hostile or not, from companies further removed from soccer than Sky, who do have commitment to the game through television. I think it will go through. Who has been the greatest influence on your career? Rob Milling, Crewkerne My father was a major influence in my early life. Later, Jimmy Murphy taught me the standards needed to reach the top as a pro and as coach at Manchester United. He spent hours giving me personal tuition, work that helped me succeed in the game, and I could never have progressed without his help. If you weren't on the board of directors for Manchester United, what would you think about Alex Ferguson being manager of England? Adele Williams, Warwick Alex Ferguson I could never see as English manager, knowing the devoted Scot he is. But he likes a challenge and may just have proved me wrong. Maybe he knew what a fight we would put up to keep him, and he declined. Who do you think should succeed Glenn Hoddle? Nicholas Bender, Rutland Kevin Keegan is now in place but if the job had been offered as part time it would be interesting to see who would have thrown their hat into the ring. Do you think Glenn Hoddle should have been allowed to keep his job? Stephen Gorman, Herts I think the accumulation of things made it hard to see him stay. Which football player reminds you of yourself? Chris Maugham, Glasgow Some of David Beckham's assets (on the field) - his long passing and his desire to be the best; also he likes the challenge football gives. Do you really think England has any chance of hosting the 2006 World Cup? John May, South London We have the best bid in terms of stadia, infrastructure and place, and everyone I am in contact with wants the chance to show off our game and country to the world. I am proud of our game and I feel 40 years is long enough in between World Cup finals here. New generations of football followers want to have the opportunity to have their own heroes instead of hearing about the good old days, and we as oldies have to try to give them that chance to succeed. I don't want to make this a commercial but as a prime mover for our bid, I have to say we have a real bid; we are ready for it. If the best bid is chosen I think we will be the one. A lot of work has to be done, but I am confident. Many people feel that premiership footballers are overpaid, spoilt brats with no experience of the real world. What are your views? Anon While there is a lot of money in the game the players will want a fair share. Overpaid, maybe spoilt - but not generally - and, you may say, no connection to the real world. But football is the world to most of them, and the time is not available to experience most of what life offers till retirement arrives. Do you think there should be a European Super League? Kevin Wragg, Liverpool It is a giant step which needs a lot of thought. The general public like myself don't find the prospect that attractive. Do you think the modern game is as entertaining a spectacle as it used to be? RB, Essex I still love going to games. It is a thrilling spectacle usually, although TV leaves little to the imagination. I remember having to wait 12 months before I could see my hero, Stanley Matthews, play at Newcastle when I was a lad. It built up many images of what great skills he might perform. These days there are few surprises. The pace of the game makes a different spectacle - but a spectacle nevertheless. You've had the reputation as the cleanest player ever. Was there ever a time you wanted to kick somebody? Roger Thompson, Alton, Hants I never thought of kicking anyone! It was not my game. I appreciate, though, that we are all different, and it would probably be a dull old game without the physical players. How can you justify Manchester United selling replica kits for far more than the cost price? Liz Scott-Robson, Manchester We don't sell anything without a great deal of thought and discussion. We are a business responsible to our shareholders and are guided by market forces. I may be old-fashioned, but if something I wanted was beyond my family finances I'd have to do without. What was your best-ever footballing moment? Graham Milne, Wiltshire Final whistle at the World Cup in 1966. Why did you hang on to the classic "Bobby Charlton" drag-a-strand-over hairstyle for so long? Thomas Coleman, London I don't know. Vanity, I suppose. Do you think George Best has had more fun than you? Emma Simon, Yorkshire Certainly not. Who is the greatest player you've ever played with - or against? Ian Dukes, Poplar, east London Duncan Edwards was maybe the greatest but we will never know how good he might have become, as he was tragically killed in Munich. Denis Law, George Best, Nobby Stiles were great. Alfredo Di Stefano of Real Madrid was the most intelligent footballer and charismatic player I played against. Pele I only played against once, yet he made his impression on me - but not like Di Stefano. What's your biggest regret in football? Pete Millar, Brussels I never got to play for a Bill Shankly team. Even once, it would have been a pleasure. Why do you think Old Trafford has such a lack of atmosphere? Bill Granleese, Manchester There is a lot of atmosphere at Old Trafford, but not as much as there used to be. I think we watch matches live like watching the box these days, but the really important FA Cup ties and European matches seem to wake people up.

United 247 in 754 (1956-73) England 49 in 106 (1958-70) Preston 8 in 38 (1974-75) Total 304 in 898 The match you recalled was in the FA Cup 3rd Round on Jan 22 1966. United won 5-2 at Derby (Best 2, Law 2, Herd). The team was: Gregg, Dunne, Cantwell, Crerand, Foulkes, Stiles, Best, Law, Charlton, Herd, Aston. After Derby we beat Rotherham away 1-0 (Connelly) in a replay, won 4-2 at Wolves (Law 2, Herd, Best), beat Preston 3-1 (Law 2, Connelly) after a replay, and then came unstuck in the SF 0-1 against Everton at Burnden Park. Bobby of course still holds many United records, most Career Apps (754) apps in League (606) League goals (199) FA Cup Apps (79) and finally International Caps (106).

Subject: Mailing from Hal Hargreaves I have been asked to select ten of the greatest players who have played for Manchester United Football Club, and who have given me so much pleasure over the years. So here goes:- 1. Johnny Carey Captain of United and also Captain of Ireland, played in the 1948 Cup final which was Matt Busby's first trophy. Johnny could play in any position and at times was asked to do so. A 'Gentlemanly Footballer', who to my knowledge was never booked. 2. Roger Byrne Another Captain of United, who no doubt would have become Captain of England, if, sadly, he had not been killed at Munich. I'll never forget the day when he received the League Championship Cup with blood streaming down the side of his face; a day to remember. 3. Duncan Edwards What more can I say about this man? A COLOSSUS, who dominated ever game I saw him play. He could kick a ball with tremendous power and accuracy with both feet, was as good a centre forward as he was a mid-field player, also a great defender. In my opinion had he not been killed, he would have lived to become Captain of United and Captain of England. He was undoubtedly the best player I have ever seen. 4. Sir Bobby Charlton After Duncan, Bobby was my all time favourite player. A gentleman on the field, who was treated with respect by other players and very seldom tackled. Consequently he was seldom on the injury list. When you consider that Bobby is England's top scorer and most of his goals were scored from mid-field it is a tremendous achievement. I don't know how many games he played for United but he must be top candidate to have played the most. A truly great ambassador for sport. 5. Bryan Robson Captain Marvel - a truly justified nickname. What a magnificent player. When you consider how many injuries he sustained it is incredible that he managed to be as good a player as he was. He was the driving force in every side he played with. A truly great player. 6. George Best Any supporter who didn't have the pleasure of watching Duncan, Roger or Johnny Carey, will choose George as their best player. As near a genius on the field as you can get. His ball control, his cool head and shooting ability, plus his tackling must make him an all-time great player. What a pity that he never played in the World Cup. 7. Denis Law A quicksilver artist who defenders ignored at their peril. Given a quarter of a chance he would score. When you saw a picture of him as a very young man you would immediately say "He'll never make a footballer"; how wrong you would have been. Denis was one of Matt's best ever signings. 8. Eric Cantona Now to more recent times. "Ooh, Ah, Cantona" - how that name used to echo all round the stadium and still does occasionally. We all know that Eric was one reason why we won so many Championships, especially after going 26 years without doing so. A wonderful artist on the field and an absolute bargain buy from Leeds. It was with great sadness that we saw him leave. 9. Peter Schmeichel United have had good goalkeepers in the past but never 'world class keepers'. 'Good keepers', yes, but none as good as Peter. Another player without whom we would never have won the Championships we did. How many times have I shouted "Big Daft S--", every time he kicked the ball to the opposition goalkeeper, but nevertheless when he throws the ball to a player it more than makes up for it. I cannot believe that he intends to leave at the end of the season. We wish him good fortune for the future. 10. Jaap Stam Last but by no means least I say that this man is another COLOSSUS. An undoubted world class player. In my opinion he is by and far the best central defender we have ever had, and only time will tell how much better he will become. At the time of writing we are in a good position for the TREBLE and with this player in the defence we have a very good chance of succeeding. Who Knows!!! So concludes my selection of my 'Ten Best Players'. Having selected them I have to say there are a lot more outstanding players I have had to leave out.
