Daily RED Trivia  Friday 26th March 1999:

26/3/1955: Liam Whelan made his debut against Preston North End. After being part of 
 the 1953 FA Youth Cup wiining side, he went on to win League Championship
 medals in 1956 and 1957 and played in the 1957 FA Cup Final, the leading scorer
 that season with 33 goals in all competitions. Scored 52 goals in 96 appearances
 before dying in the Munich Disaster aged 22. 4 caps for the Republic of Ireland.

1983: Despite an early Norman Whiteside goal, United lose 2-1 to Liverpool
 after extra time in the League Cup Final at Wembley watched by 100,000. Team
 was: Bailey, Duxbury, Albiston, Moses, Moran (Macari), McQueen, Wilkins,
 Muhren, Stapleton, Whiteside, Coppell. 

Barry Daily Comment:

Alex Ferguson has been fined by UEFA for
 "unnecessary provocation" following his
 comments before the two Inter Milan matches
 earlier this month.

 Ferguson claimed the  Italians would "dive,
 scheme and referee-bait" in order to win the quarter-final
 tie, and that when "Italians give me pasta, I check under
 the sauce to make sure it is." UEFA have fined the Boss
 5000 Swiss Francs (£2155).

Subject: Mulryne Moves On It's transfer deadline day and Phil Mulryne has joined Norwich City in a £500,000 deal. The 21-year-old has struggled to gain a first team place this season after impressing during pre-season, scoring a memorable hat-trick against Birmingham City. Reserve team keeper Paul Gibson has joined Notts County on a free while Michael Ryan is expected to join Wrexham in a similar deal. United fans should not expect to see any new faces arriving at Old Trafford. Since his appointment 12 years ago Alex Ferguson has proved he is not one to wheel and deal as the curtain comes down on the transfer market for the season. Fergie does his buying in the summer and feels this rule should apply throughout the game with clubs only allowed to sign new players in cases of emergency, for example, as a replacement for someone ruled out by a long term injury. The United boss has made no secret of his views, saying clubs should have to go through the season with the players who were on the books before a pre-determined cut-off point. The present late transfer deadline means it is possible for wealthy clubs to buy their way out of trouble, or invest in players who might help them win trophies, and as the opposing view comes from the manager of the world's richest football club, Fergie's argument carries plenty of weight. Today's cut off time is 5pm. by which time deals have to be done and players registered. Terry Cooke, currently on loan to Manchester City is the only other player close to a move and it seems Bradford City may have been scared off by Fergie's latest price tag on Cooke. He is reported to value him at £1.5 million although there were claims he was willing to sell him to City for £400,000. David May is the only other player likely to attract a late offer, but to date United have made no efforts to offload him. ]

Subject: YORKE PUTS SMILE ON COLE'S FACE Andy Cole is grateful to Manchester United strike partner Dwight Yorke for helping to put a smile back on his face. Cole has bagged 21 goals this season and looks like the hitman Alex Ferguson paid a then record £6.25million for in January 1995. Perhaps most satisfying of all, he is finally about to get a proper chance with England. Cole's former Newcastle mentor Kevin Keegan has taken over for four games and the striker is likely to partner Alan Shearer against Poland in Saturday's crunch Euro 2000 qualifier at Wembley. Cole could hardly be happier and he admits part of the transformation is down to his partnership at Old Trafford with Yorke. The pair are lethal together on the pitch and firm friends off it. ''My partnership with Dwight is brilliant and it is one of the best I have ever had,'' said Cole. ''We're opposites as players and I think that helps us. We don't get in each other's way and instead we complement each other with the way we play. ''We also get on well together off the pitch which I feel is another thing which helps us when we play together. ''I think the way Dwight has been brought up in the Caribbean is different. He's always smiling and that's different from the English mentality. ''All the boys are always having a go at him because he's always smiling and laughing. ''He's making me smile and a lot of people have picked up on that and that's a good thing.'' Cole has matured a great deal since he came to United and initially he struggled to live up to his record pricetag. He took much of the criticism personally, but now he claims he just ignores the snipers. ''I'm not bothered what other people say about me any more,'' he said. ''I'm 27 now and I haven't got time to worry about what other people think these days. ''My record speaks for itself and when I have finished it will all be down there in black and white for people to see.'' Yorke is thrilled to see his new pal thriving for club and country. ''It's nice to see him doing well and it's nice to know that I can be helpful in some way,'' he said. ''Andy has been through a lot since he's been here. ''Earlier on in the season he was left out a few times, but he has shown great character in coming back and proving what a quality player he is. ''He has really taken his chance with both hands.'' Cole became involved in a very public and bitter row with previous England coach Glenn Hoddle over his exclusion from the international scene. It seemed Cole would never play for his country while Hoddle was in charge. But all that changed when Hoddle was sacked over his controversial remarks about reincarnation and the disabled.

Subject: Emails today to 365 on Schmeichel's Replacement - no edits Boz Eyed I think Mark Bosnich is the answer. While his name has not been linked with the club recently, I suspect United are interested. The only stumbling block could be his wage demands. He is of course out of contract and could probably command around £40k-50k per week in Italy or Spain. To avoid mutiny in the camp, I'm sure Fergie wouldn't pay that. Hopefully, they can negotiate because I think he would settle in quite smoothly. Obviously he is no Schmeichel, but he is still young and has bags of Premier League experience. A huge factor in my book. More importantly, of course, he could renew his adult film career round at Yorkie's house. Ken Dye Edwin Star I really believe that Alex Ferguson should consider signing Edwin van der Sar. He was outstanding at France 98 and, although I don't follow Ajax's games, I always read Jaap Stam saying that Van der Sar would be the man. That won't change my opinion that Schmeichel is irreplaceable, but Van der Sar comes quite close. I have also heard that Fiorentina's Francesco Toldo is on Ferguson's list, but the reported £15m fee is, in my opinion, too much... Johannes Cun, Singapore ...Edwin van der Sar is probably even better than Schmeichel. He doesn't have to kick the ball into the crowd, like Schmeichel, when he's under pressure. Another good choice would be Sander Westerveld from Vitesse Arnhem. He's probably the second-best goalkeeper in the Dutch league, as proved when Westerveld helped Vitesse beat Ajax in Amsterdam last weekend. Caspar Maan, Arnhem, Netherlands 'We're Not Nutters!' Just to correct a couple of points re: the Carlos Roa/Man Utd story. As a Seventh Day Adventist, I would like to point out that we are a registered Christian charitable organisation not a cult as mentioned on your web page. One of our beliefs is that the end of the world is imminent, but I think you will find that many Muslims, Buddhists, Christian and non religious people would agree that, at some time, there will be an end to world. SDAs do believe that Saturday is the religious day of the week and that would cause problems for Carlos Roa were he to sign for Manchester United. It seems that the moment a footballer is seen to be different, he is labelled a crank or a crazy man, from the mild taunting of Graeme le Saux to the totally destroyed Justin Fashanu. I think football needs to be bigger and more broadminded than this. Look how long it has taken us to realise that there is a race problem at many grounds for black players... Glen Malcolm ...Something has to be wrong with your lead story about Carlos Roa. I am not myself a Seventh Day Adventist, but I know several people who are, and I can assure you that they are not a 'cult' and neither are they predicting the End of the World. On the contrary, the Seventh Day Adventists claim to be the fastest-growing Christian church, and they preach a positive message because they believe that Jesus is coming back to save the World (hence the name Adventist). There would certainly be a problem with a footballer becoming an Adventist because they believe that the seventh day - which in their case is Saturday - is sacrosanct and they will not do any work. That's why I think you may find you've mixed up your denominations. The Adventists I know are all normal, well-adjusted people who just happen to interpret certain things in the Bible in a different way to most Christians. They certainly don't hold the bizarre beliefs of Glenn Hoddle. I think it's important that you make a proper distinction between genuine denominations and cults. Or, better still, keep religion out of Football365 altogether! Andy Sennitt, Naarden, The Netherlands Other Candidates I still can't believe that, next season, Man Utd will be without Peter Schmeichel, but all good things must come to an end. One of the few goalies who can fill Schmeichel's boots is Yugoslavia's World Cup player Ivica Kralj. Similar in height and abilities to Van der Sar, he could be a better bet. Gurudutt, India ...Manchester United have got so much money they should recycle it back into the English game. £10m for Neil Sullivan, I reckon. Martin Cowen ...My choice for United goalkeeper would still be Andy Goram. As can be seen from the recent poll to select the best-ever Rangers team, Andy was first choice with the punters. Admittedly, if one considers previous goalkeepers, there probably wasn't a huge amount of competition! David Pratt ...Look no further than Coventry's Swedish keeper Magnus Hedman. He'd be excellent value for money. Swedie ...Roa: What a top mad geezer! I think that United will probably plump for Van der Sar and, due to Jaap Stam's influence, they'll probably get him, although I believe that the guy that they should be after is the England Under-21 keeper, Richard Wright of Ipswich. Scott Considine ...As a United fan, my ideal replacement would be Richard Wright of Ipswich. He has the talent and natural ability to be a world-class keeper, also if they get him to Old Trafford in plenty of time he can learn a few tricks from the man himself... Paul Murphy ...How about Wes Lamont, the Coleraine keeper from the Smirnoff Irish League? A O'Donnell More Man United Why is it always Manchester United you seem to cover in depth - is F365 connected to the club in some way? Do we really care about your headline stories every day about the club and what Alex Ferguson had for Sunday lunch? Paul Wheeler ...How the hell can Joel Gaskell say that Man U and Juve crept into the Champions League through the back door while Kiev and Bayern didn't? For his information, Bayern Munich finished SECOND to a team who had been promoted that same year!! Yes, Kaiserslautern. Surely it's no disgrace finishing second to Arsenal instead of a promoted team, which then gets trounced 6-0 in the quarter-finals!!! I wonder what on earth would happen if Arsenal, the English champions, would have been trounced 6-0 by Man U in the quarter-finals. As for Kiev, they are one of the most over-rated teams in Europe. There's no way they're going to get past either United or Juventus if they'd meet in the final. And probably not even past Bayern. Ukrainian football is too much of a one-dimensional game to succeed in Europe. You watch Shevchenko next year with AC. Sarah ...So, Man United aren't good enough? This year's champions will come from the Kiev vs Munich tie? What short memories people have. I seem to remember Munich finishing top in the tightest group of the competition. I also remember some mediocre results against the likes of Brondby that don't flatter them. If that isn't enough, United should have beaten them comfortably twice. Kiev are the only team who have set this competition alight and must beat Munich to ensure the final won't be a complete shambles. Stefan Kopczyk ...Inter's collapse at the weekend doesn't diminish United's achievement in beating them. Last week, the European Cup was all Inter had left. Now that has gone they are a spent force, just like many middle-of-the-league teams. They have nothing left because United took it away from them in brilliant fashion. Did you see Inter rushing to get Ronaldo fit for the Sampdoria game? - I think not. It's exactly this type of panic that causes English sides to lose in Europe as foreign sides are built up to superhuman statuses. Let's face it, United are going to beat Juventus and go on to win the treble - and ain't no-one going to stop 'em. Ian McDermott

Subject: SHERINGHAM KEEN ON UNITED RECALL Teddy Sheringham is anxious not to become the forgotten man as he tries to rescue his career with Manchester United and England. Sheringham has been out of action for most of the season following a troublesome knee injury - but after surgery is back in action and says: "I've been on the sidelines for too long watching what has been going on and it is nice to be back again. "But you really have to take it one game at a time so you don't get ideas above your station." The former England regular was in United's reserves at Stoke on Monday as five of his team mates prepared for Saturday's European qualifier against Poland. And Sheringham is ready for more Pontins League action before he gets back to a regular place in the first team squad. "I hope the injury is behind me now although you can never be sure of anything in football. Now the more games I can get the better. "There's still a lot of the season to go and the manager has emphasised that to me. So hopefully things will work out. You can't take anything for granted. You can only be fit and ready to take your chance if it comes along. "One thing that's certain is there is no chance of me feeling stale as the last two months come along, because I have had such a lot of time out this season. It has been my worst season of injuries but at least the team has been doing well. "I know it is going to be hard to get back but all I can do is keep myself fit and keep trying. I have always said this is the place to be and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else at this stage of the season." Sheringham moved a step closer to a full return to league action when he came on as substitute for Andy Cole in the last 18 minutes of United's 3-1 win against Everton on Sunday.

Subject: 13 Games From History! United players have embarked on a two week domestic break, with boss Alex Ferguson hoping that his side will return to Old Trafford with their batteries recharged - ready for the run-in to an historic treble. The potentially daunting March schedule has been swept through - with a 100% record in Premiership action, and Chelsea and Inter Milan kicked out of cup competitions. The unbeaten run now stands at 19 matches - the last blemish being that 3-2 debacle at the hands of Middlesbrough - and Ferguson now feels that the present signs are good, and his side are more than ready for the big push. Ferguson said: "We're looking very powerful. We have come through to the end of a period of six matches in 18 days, in which the players have excelled themselves. "Now they can go and get a break with their international teams. Some will play, some won't - and they'll come back two weeks from now ready for the challenge. "We're approaching it in the right way. We are trying to win every game. The evidence of how they are going about that is encouraging. The players are looking strong. United have eight Premiership matches remaining, three at home and five away, with an FA Cup semi final and a two-legged Champions League semi final to come - with Ferguson not minding in the slightest if a couple of finals also force themselves onto the fixture itinerary.

          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
