Super Sub Ole Celebrates the winner!

Subject: Sunday 1400 Utd v Fulham United tie TV switch Sky Sports will screen Newcastle's FA Cup clash with Blackburn after taking their pick of the fifth round ties today. The Valentine's Day game kicks off at 4pm - ITV have yet to confirm their choice of match although Fulham's visit to Old Trafford is favourite. (1400 UK) Meanwhile United face a battle against mounting odds to sign £4 million Taribo West in time for Saturday's showdown with Aston Villa. It emerged today that West (pictured) is still in Nigeria for a second African Nations Cup tie tomorrow night and won't be back in Milan until Wednesday night or Thursday morning. That was confirmed today and it means talks with West can't open until late in the week. United, having agreed terms with Inter Milan, made an offer to the player's agent but West's response has not been received and any ensuing negotiations have still to get under way.

Subject: UNITED SAVIOUR SOLSKJAER ASKS FOR MORE Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not want to be Manchester United's supersub. The Norwegian international, consistently linked with moves away from Old Trafford, wants to be remembered as a regular at United and once again he's vowed to fight for his place. ''I don't want to be remembered as a supersub and I want more games,'' he said. ''I'm happy at United and I want to stay here. I would like to play more matches and I feel I will get more games here. I had a talk two or three weeks ago with the manager about the situation and I reckon we were both happy when we walked out of that meeting. I'm doing all that I can to show that I need more matches - I need as many minutes as I can get.'' United boss Alex Ferguson knows Solskjaer would be a regular at virtually any other Premiership side and he is determined to give him as many games as he can. But standing in Solskjaer's way is the hottest striking partnership in the Premiership of Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole. The pair have scored 32 goals between them this season, and Solskjaer knows it will be extremely difficult to dislodge one of them. The 25-year-old, who arrived in July 1996 in a £1.5m move from Molde, admits it is frustrating watching from the bench, but he has faith in his ability. ''I'm a much better player now than I was in my first year at Old Trafford and I'm sharper,'' he said. ''But Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole are on fire, and their partnership is really working. I just have to work hard and take my chance when I get it - and for now I'm just taking it a game at a time. As a footballer you want to play as many games as possible, and I've not played many this season. Coming on for ten minutes is not easy, and you never really catch up with the pace and tempo of the game. It's a difficult situation to be in, but it's a great team to be involved with. I just want to stay here and I will do everything I can to get in the side. The transfer speculation is just paper talk, and - as I keep saying - I want to stay here.'' Meanwhile, the Premier League has rejected calls from United fans' groups to oppose BSkyB's proposed £623.4m takeover of Manchester United.The Football Supporters' Association (FSA) and the Independent Manchester United Supporters' Association (IMUSA) want the league to back their fight against the satellite broadcaster. The supporters' organisations feel the League should support them because they are helping its court case against the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) over the television rights to the Premiership. IMUSA might even withdraw its support if the League does not reciprocate. The League is understood to be surprised by the fans' timing and believes the two issues are totally separate. League spokesman Mike Lee said: "The issues at stake in our current court case remain the same. "The supporters' organisations have recognised that the OFT pose a real threat to the fabric of the game. It would be wrong to trade support on other issues. These cases have to be looked at on their own merits and are being judged by different legal bodies. The issues at stake are too serious to be played around with in this way."

Subject: DA's armchair report I thought I would never get to see this match, I had been told two different starting times for the match, and I had to get family help to send out the list because I didn't want to see the final score before I actually watched. Before I wrote this I read Linda's and Paul accounts of the match, but I am afraid I must disagree with most of their reports. I thought we were by far the better side, having 90% of possession, just not getting any clear cut chances at goal, lets face it, we hit the post twice and had a couple more efforts narrowly missed, it could (and should) have been 3 or 4 -1. The atmosphere sounded great on TV, but maybe that was the travelling hordes, its hard for the Old Trafford crowd to get things stirred up, especially since they break up some of our more active sections to sell tickets to the trash from up the East Lancs. Ole carried on the tradition of 'supersub' and is really racking up some memoriable goals for us to remember. With 5 mins left in the match I grabbed my dog (who had the misfortune to be sat on my knee) and told him that the scousers couldn't win this one, God wouldn't allow that, he gave me a very odd look. As far as rating the players, Smikes 7 didn't have much to do Neville - 5 worst I have seen him, how could he have let that cross in to Owen? Irwin - 7 Steady Stam - 8.5 magnificent performance again, what a great player this guy is! Berg - 7 continued his good performances Giggs 6 his crosses just weren't there today Yorke 8 one of his better matches, worked so very hard Cole 8 - I don't understand the comments that he was not involved today, he worked very hard, and laid on the equaliser Beckham 9 - Worked himself into the ground Ole Gunnar - 8 took the goal well Scholes - 8 He made a difference when he came on Johnsen 7- didn't get to do much, but was steady as ever My favourite part of the match? crying scousers!

Subject: Report from Scouse point of view http://www.liverpool.com/kop/jan99/25thb.html Reds find solace in executioners song Manchester United 2... Liverpool 1... Paul Joyce reports from Old Trafford It was like sitting on Death Row waiting for the buzzer to ring. A rare victory at Old Trafford, an even rarer win in the FA Cup over Manchester United, was just two minutes out of reach. Liverpool have never been so close and yet ended up so far away. They did not deserve to lose, but then neither did United after mounting a tidal wave of second-half pressure which always threatened to yield a share of the spoils, but ultimately brought more. A new date at Anfield would have been the fairest option. For Gerard Houllier, there was solace in the performance of his braves for 88 minutes of a pulsating cup tie. For Alex Ferguson, an unprecedented treble remains a shining, if still improbable, ambition. But those late goals from Dwight Yorke, via the free-kick that never was, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer proved the margin between agony and ecstasy is paper thin at the highest level. While the United players danced for joy, a prostrate Vegard Heggem slumped to the turf. Robbie Fowler simply held his head. From being on the verge of feeling sky-high to being utterly demoralised; Houllier's part-time powers as a psychologist will be needed more than ever this week. Despite trying to hide it, Ferguson's ear-to-ear grin as he emerged for the aftermatch Press conference told the story. He was the cat who had snatched the cream. But he also cut a relieved figure. Two months ago, Liverpool would not have been able to come so close to claiming what would have been a famous victory. It may not seem so, and accepting this defeat may be like trying to swallow a bowling ball, but yesterday represented progress. To a man, they showed character, spirit and commitment. They played well. Really well. Now is not the time to criticise. "One day we will beat Manchester United," said Houllier, who is charged with recovering the ground lost in recent years. "It is coming. Today was close." And the way he said it, calmly but sternly, you have to believe him. There were chances for the High Noon showdown to be just that day. It is apt that the middle name of the FA Cup should be 'Challenge' because Michael Owen thrives on meeting such tasks. His third-minute goal sounded the gun in the Battle of the Strikers and was simplicity itself. Incisive and controlled, the move leading to his header started inside Liverpool's own half and lasted just four passes. Stig Inge Bjornebye's throw-in to the impressive Patrik Berger saw the Czech delude Roy Keane and Nicky Butt with the deftest of touches and link up with Jamie Redknapp. The overlapping Heggem was the next involved, rampaging down the right and checking to pick out 5ft 6ins Owen with a measured cross which he powered past Schmeichel above the sleeping Gary Neville. "Jesus. God. I wasn't too happy with that," moaned Ferguson. The breakthrough brought an advantage so often previously denied at Old Trafford, but with it problems as well. Should they sit back and defend the lead? Or go for the jugular? In the event, Liverpool really did neither. It became a struggle to maintain the kind of possession which had brought them the goal and play keep-ball in a frenzied, white-hot atmosphere, and yet the better of the opportunities still fell their way. Redknapp saw an ambitious 30-yard free-kick whistle wide of a post, Owen's audacious early shot sent Schmeichel scrambling to cover his ground and Fowler swung his right-foot at a loose ball which sent an Exocet curling drive narrowly over the bar. United struggled to find any rhythm and fluidity, looking strangely out of sorts. And so Liverpool's failure to build on their advantage was matched by United's insistence on making a catalogue of unforced errors which undermined their attempts to retrieve the deficit. Cross after cross was pumped into the crowded penalty area, by-passing the Dream Ticket, so we are told, of Yorke and Cole in the process. One chance did fall their way after 21 minutes when Yorke's elusiveness enabled him to peel to the by-line and whip over a cross aimed for his partner. James succeeded in diverting the ball away from Cole, but instead into the path of Keane who arrived unannounced at the far post. Sending a header back across goal the ball hit the woodwork, then Ince and then nestled in James' arms. When Berger's instinctive snap-shot was saved by Schmeichel and Ince's header from the resulting corner gathered at the second-time attempt on the stroke of half-time, you wondered whether Liverpool would rue what might have been. The answer was ultimately yes. The second half constituted a white knuckle ride for both benches and both sets of supporters. But it was pure theatre at the same time. Like the accomplished champion against the pretender, they stood toe-to-toe for the prize of a passage to the Fifth Round. Liverpool accepted slug after slug after slug; wobbled but were never really rocked and even offered the occasional jab back themselves. It would have been the perfect time to claim the goal which at that stage looked like being decisive, but when counter-attacks were mounted a lack of support often left Owen and Fowler isolated. Indeed, Fowler, who worked prodigiously, wasted an excellent chance on 55 minutes when he screwed a sharp chance past the post after more trickery from Owen had left Jaap Stam and Gary Neville looking like statues. Owen stood on the ball when he was invited to scamper clear on Schmeichel's goal, and even before United had equalised substitute Jason McAteer saw his cross hit Stam and roll towards the goalline before being rescued by the Dane. They were sporadic incidents, however, and as the clearances in front of James became a little more ragged, so United began to claim the upper hand in the undercard duels to the Yorke-Cole versus Fowler-Owen showdown. But Liverpool were never second best. Heggem had forced Ryan Giggs to do as much defending as he did attacking in the first half, but slowly the Welshman became a growing influence. Redknapp and Ince, before the skipper asked to be subbed because of a knock, were strangely muted in the engine room; standing their ground but reluctant to venture too far forward. It prompted wave upon wave of attack and, although James was not tested specifically, his goal lead a charmed life. Beckham's cross found Giggs unmarked, but their was no final touch on 51 minutes. Keane's snap-shot took a deflection which sent the keeper the wrong way, but went wide. Cole's anguished look shortly afterwards revealed he had suffered a similar fate and then Neville's low centre saw Dominic Matteo outstretched leg send the ball screaming into James' stomach. With Ince now off and Paul Scholes sent on to try and add greater imagination to the possession United held, the thrills continued. The sheer determination of Matteo, Harkness and Carragher raised hopes it would be Liverpool's day; but Ferguson's side showed similar qualities to continue pushing for the equaliser. You wondered whether bringing on Steve McManaman to try and stem the flow of United pressure would have been a telling tactic, but we will never know. Keane was denied for a third time after 79 minutes when he saw a shot strike the post from inside the box and then Giggs' rebound drive was blocked, before their persistence gleaned the greatest of rewards. If the timing wasn't cruel enough, the way it came was. When Redknapp challenged Ronnie Johnsen, referee Graham Poll harshly awarded a free-kick. Your heart told you it was now or never for both sides. Liverpool defended too deeply, Beckham's dinked cross found Cole and his header was tapped over the line by Yorke, who for the previous 88 minutes had done nothing. The danger was that having managed to claim one, United would land another blow. This time a knockout punch. Solskjaer hadn't even figured in the pre-match hype, but the 'Baby-faced assassin' isn't a bad option to throw on when you need a goal. When Scholes shaped to shoot, the ball broke to the Norwegian to the left of the penalty spot. Steadying himself, he looked for the far corner. . . but threaded his shot through Carragher's legs and in at the near post. It was heartbreaking, or heartwarming, depending on which bench your focus fixed upon. United may still have trophies to chase, but the future isn't as bleak as it may seem for Liverpool now. If the same effort and work-rate they showed against the probable title winners can be applied over the last 16 Premiership games, then the season may still spring an unexpected reward. Ferguson's side may still offer up the standard that was once Liverpool's, but honour in defeat showed the gap is not as great as people may have thought.

Subject: News 11/4 favourites...good odds FERGIE TO FACE OLD FOE KEEGAN Manchester United were installed as 11/4 favourites for the FA Cup after Alex Ferguson's side fought their way back from a goal down to snatch a 2-1 victory from the jaws of defeat, earning them a home tie against giant-killers Fulham and old enemy Kevin Keegan in the next round. Michael Owen's 18th goal of the season looked to have sealed victory for arch rivals Liverpool, but Dwight Yorke's 88th minute equaliser and an injury time winner from substitute Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave them a dramatic win. Ferguson took a chance by bringing on Solskjaer, Paul Scholes and Ronny Johnsen as United searched in vein for a goal and Fergie said: "Both Ole and Scholes are capable of scoring goals and we hoped they would make the difference when they came on. "By putting on extra attackers for defenders we hoped that would cause Liverpool to slacken somewhere. Even at the free-kick I was shouting at Peter Schmeichel to tell Jaap Stam to stay up in attack and that we would risk one against one at the back. That's the kind of thing you have to do if you want to win games." But Fergie had a few words of sympathy for the Liverpool players: "They must be feeling absolutely gutted. You can't explain football like that. They defended fantastically but our sheer determination got us through." Now the United boss will come face to face with another rival, this time in Fulham boss Keegan, who has already seen his side dump two Premiership sides out of the Cup already - Southampton and more shockingly Aston Villa on Saturday. Keegan and Fergie were last at loggerheads when the Fulham boss was manager of Newcastle United in 1996 and launched a TV attack on Fergie as both teams were duelling for the Premiership title. "I'd just love it if we beat them, I'd love it," Keegan raged. ************************************** More: KEEGAN HANDED OLD TRAFFORD TIE By David Anderson, PA Sport Kevin Keegan has been handed the chance to gain revenge over Alex Ferguson after Fulham were paired with Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round. The Fulham boss lost his battle of minds with United manager Ferguson and subsequently the 1996 Premiership race after he famously blew his top live on television. Keegan has never lived that down, but he has the chance to settle the score when his Second Division giant-killers - who have already beaten Aston Villa and Southampton - visit Old Trafford in three weeks' time. United, who are 11-4 favourites, set up the intriguing contest after they produced a magnificent late comeback to beat Liverpool. With two minutes of normal time remaining, Liverpool were on course to record their first FA Cup win over their fiercest rivals since 1921 as they led thanks to Michael Owen's third-minute leader. The Merseysiders' packed defence had defied the home side and Roy Keane had seen two efforts hit the post. But then Andy Cole nodded David Beckham's free-kick across goal for Dwight Yorke to equalise and in the first minute of stoppage time substitute Ole Gunnar Solskjaer netted a dramatic winner. Solskjaer, Paul Scholes and Ronny Johnsen all came on in the final frantic quarter of the match as United went for broke. For an elated Ferguson it was an example of who dared won. "You have to take risks to win," he said. "Liverpool defended fantastically but our sheer determination got us through. "Both Ole and Scholes are capable of scoring goals and we hoped they would make the difference when they came on. "By putting on extra attackers for defenders we hoped that would cause Liverpool to slacken somewhere. "Even at the free-kick I was shouting at Peter Schmeichel to tell Jaap Stam to stay up in attack and that we would risk one against one at the back. That's the kind of thing you have to do if you want to win games." What disappointment for Liverpool, whose manager Gerard Houllier was adamant referee Graham Poll should not have given the free-kick which led to United's equaliser. Poll ruled that Redknapp fouled Johnsen in a dangerous position outside the Liverpool area and Houllier said: "It was a crucial moment. "I didn't think it was a foul and Jamie has told me since it wasn't. I've seen it on TV and it looks like Johnsen fell over the ball. "That broke our concentration; we were not in the right positions for the free-kick because we were still arguing about it with the referee." Liverpool's trophy cabinet is destined to be bare for a fourth successive season following this latest setback. It is the club's longest barren run in over 25 years, but Houllier was defiant in defeat and said: "The players could have written a piece of history for the club in big letters. "But I'm still proud of what they did and they have nothing to be ashamed of. We haven't beaten United in the Cup for over 70 years, but I assure people that we will beat them at some stage." United will be without skipper Keane and Scholes for the Fulham game because they have each picked up a one-match ban following their fifth bookings of the season against Liverpool.

BREAKING NEWS - Monday 25 January 1999 LEAGUE REJECTS FANS' CALLS OVER UNITED TAKEOVER The Premier League has rejected calls from fans' groups to oppose BSkyB's proposed ?623.4million takeover of Manchester United. The Football Supporters' Association (FSA) and the Independent Manchester United Supporters' Association (IMUSA) want the league to back their fight against the satellite broadcaster. The supporters' organisations feel the League should support them because they are helping its court case against the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) over the television rights to the Premiership. IMUSA might even withdraw its support if the League does not reciprocate. The League is understood to be surprised by the fans' timing and believes the two issues are totally separate. League spokesman Mike Lee said: "The issues at stake in our current court case remain the same. "The supporters' organisations have recognised that the OFT pose a real threat to the fabric of the game. "It would be wrong to trade support on other issues. These cases have to be looked at on their own merits and are being judged by different legal bodies. "The issues at stake are too serious to be played around with in this way."

Subject: Fulham's Pesky is floored by United By Ian Chadband Monday, January 25, 1999 Paul Peschisolido, one of Fulham's Villa Park heroes, watched the Cup draw on TV pair them with Manchester United at Old Trafford and felt that while it couldn't possibly have been any worse, it couldn't have been more wonderful either. First, though, he had to pick himself up off the floor. 'Unbelievable,' reckoned Peschisolido. He had decided to put his feet up after Saturday's heroics and watch the Man Utd-Liverpool tie on TV. 'Which is not the sort of thing you want to do just before you learn that you've got to play the winners in the next round,' he smiled ruefully. 'Of course it's an intimidating prospect - you look at them with the world's most expensive defender, the best goalkeeper, the best strike force, no weak links and know it could not be any harder than that. 'But this is going to be a great occasion for everyone involved in the club. People are going to be fed up of watching us on telly at this rate. 'Anyway, we have nothing to lose the way we've been playing. 'We'll give it 100 per cent and though Old Trafford might be the most difficult place to win, hey, United players are only human; they've got two legs and two arms like the rest of us.' Peschisolido had a quiet night at home in Birmingham on Saturday. Being married to Birmingham City's managing director Karren Brady and being the man who helped KO the Villa would not have made for a cheery night out in Aston, he surmised. 'Are you nuts? They'd have strung me up if I'd gone out.' Pesky is not fussed; he'll just wait for the celebrations which follow Fulham's win at the Theatre of Dreams.
