We went to Barcelona in a fine day in May
And all our supporters sang loudly & gay
And when it was over and all said and done
We beat Bayern Munich  by 2 goals to 1

The first one was Teddy's he out foxed the rest
The second was Solskjear's he's simply the best
We could have had 4 or we could have had 9
But we didn't start playing till injury time

Subject: Selby turns out to watch Mr Posh By Ken Lawrence Monday, July 26, 1999 The 'Just Married' signs have only recently been wiped off his Ferrari, but it was back to work for David Beckham on Saturday. Hundreds of youngsters gawked at his flashy arrival as he parked his silver sports car amidst the humble confines of Selby Town's packed ground, but none will have been more interested in the performance that was to come than Sir Alex Ferguson. The Manchester United manager need have no worries. By the time Beckham roared off again following the 6-1 defeat of the Northern Counties side, the newly-wed had provided his manager with the evidence that the summer nuptials and world-wide coverage of his wedding to Victoria have not turned the golden boy's head. It is quite possible that Ferguson, like many who saw the pictures of the new Mr and Mrs Beckham, perched like the king and queen of soccerpop on red thrones, will have cringed at such a vision. The excesses of the Beckhams' Irish bash, paid for by a 1 million contract with OK! magazine, were condemned by some members of the fashion police as tacky. Yet as Ferguson knows only too well, Beckham has proved in his growing maturity as a footballer that there is seldom anything tasteless about the way he plays the game. A year ago, following his dismissal against Argentina in the World Cup finals, Beckham was England's number one public enemy, condemned and vilified for his knee-jerk reaction in response to Diego Simeone's wild tackle. It was feared, in the welter of recrimination against him and the insults from opposition terraces, Beckham might be driven to play abroad. And of course his engagement to Posh Spice, with all the attendant media interest, heaped further pressure on the Leytonstone Lad. But, as he showed in the Champions Cup final against Bayern Munich and, indeed, throughout what was to become a triumphant season in a moral sense as well as that of United's unprecedented Treble success, the golden boy turned into a golden man. Ferguson now needs him more than ever. Initially he will be a vital component in Sunday's Charity Shield match against Arsenal, with players such as Gary Neville and Roy Keane already ruled out through injury. Ryan Giggs, too, will miss the game. And with those infamous thigh and hamstring injuries of his, a seemingly perpetual cloud on the Welshman's horizon, with doubts remaining over Keane's long-term future, Beckham is emerging as the true fulcrum of the United team. While most of his team-mates have been flying the red flag of Old Trafford commercialism in Australia and China, Beckham has been working quietly away back at base after receiving an extra few days off to enjoy with his wife. The training and the chance to concentrate away from the glare of the public on recovering his fitness and focus has clearly stimulated him. Beckham, albeit against a team of willing part-timers from many leagues below United's exalted status, was still all style and invention. He was involved in five of the goals in a game which also featured Paul Scholes, another who was kept at Old Trafford to recharge batteries rather than help further United's global marketing policy. Ferguson professed that 'David did fine' for the side mainly constructed of reserves. Now Beckham appears ready for the latest chapter of his charmed existence. He has come through the most momentous year of his life, not only intact, but now with an extra shimmer to him. Ferguson would not swap his golden one for all the gold bars in the world.

Subject: HOME STARS TURN IT ON IN SUNNY SELBY Sunday 25th July 1999 Updated 1:05pm BST HOME STARS TURN IT ON IN SUNNY SELBY Selby 1-6 Manchester United XI Those who thought David Beckham was having a stroll at home, while the rest of the squad travelled halfway around the world on their tour of Australia and China, were wrong. Under the watchful eye of Sir Alex Ferguson, Beckham went on his first public workout since his glamour marriage to Victoria Adams. At the same time the boys were making it four wins on the spin on tour, United, led by the likes of Becks and Paul Scholes, travelled to Selby for a pre-season warm-up. And if it was boiling amid the 80F temperatures, it made little impact on the legs of the Reds who tore the non-League opposition apart with a six-goal spree. The only worry for Fergie was the loss through injury of Norwegian striker Erik Nevland. He hobbled off midway through the first half.

Subject: IRWIN BACKS BOSNICH TO FILL GAP Manchester United veteran Denis Irwin is tipping new Aussie goalkeeper Mark Bosnich to fill the void left by Peter Schmeichel. Irwin, United's acting skipper during the tour of Australia and the Far East, said Bosnich's form had been the major plus. "Mark's come in and done the job and we haven't had a goal scored against us. When he's played he's looked the part," Irwin said after the 2-0 victory over Hong Kong side South China yesterday. Great Dane Schmeichel, who retired from the Premiership after United clinched the Treble in May and then join Sporting Lisbon for next season, had a reputation of barking out orders and yelling instructions to team-mates. Asked what was different about playing in front of Bosnich, Irwin said: "He's quieter, that's for sure. "But I'm sure he'll get a bit louder. "I spoke to Dwight Yorke before Mark came and he said Mark was the best goalkeeper he's ever seen. It's a lot to ask coming in after Peter but I'm sure he's up to the job. "It will be different without Peter but that's football. In my time at the club I've seen magnificent players come and go. The club moves on." United, who fielded a strong side against South China despite the absence of Gary Neville, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, snatched control early on with a two-goal blast within four minutes. Teddy Sheringham opened the scoring with 22 minutes gone when he pulled away from his marker to thump Andy Cole's pull-back home from six yards. Sheringham returned the favour four minutes later when he unselfishly squared to Cole after collecting Jordi Cruyff's pass and the unmarked England hitman gave South China keeper Mick Leonard no chance from close range. South China's only chance in the first half came from Leung Chi-wing, whose long-range shot was tipped away by Bosnich. Former Notts County and Chesterfield keeper Leonard prevented United increasing their lead before the break with a fine save from Cruyff, and the Far East side competed well after the break. Dwight Yorke, playing in midfield behind Cole and Sheringham, sent a 20-yard effort just wide on 65 minutes and Cole fired over after being put away by Sheringham. Leonard again saved well late on from Cruyff to keep the margin of defeat respectable. United assistant manager Steve McLaren believes the tour had been important for forging team spirit. "It's been useful for us, no doubt about it. We've had four hard games and it's good for the players to have a little bit of adversity here and there," he said, in an apparent reference to the stormy second match against Australia last week. In that game Simon Colosimo suffered a serious knee injury because of a high tackle from United striker Cole, a tackle the Australian has called "malicious". Cole may have to make a court appearance in Australia to defend himself against a claim for damages from the 20-year-old player, who had expected to sign a contract in Europe this summer. "Andy Cole would be expected to appear," solicitor Janet van der Kolk told the News of the World. She represents Colosimo and his Down Under club, Carlton. "He will be the best person to plead his case that it was not an unfair tackle."

Subject: Giggs headache back for Fergie By Ken Lawrence Saturday, July 24, 1999 There will be one important name missing from the banquet table next week when the kings of football, Manchester United, set the places for what they hope will be yet another triumphal feast of a season. Even before a competitive kick of the ball, Ryan Giggs has been ruled out of the Charity Shield curtain-raiser against arch-rivals Arsenal. The most worrying aspect of his enforced absence is that every United fan, from Manchester to Melbourne, would roar in unison if asked to identify the injury - 'Hamstring!' That is how familiar they have become with seeing their star player struck down and why their hearts will have sunk when Giggs was sent back from the southern hemisphere tour for urgent treatment. For the injury to be bad enough for him to be flown home early, the word 'chronic' has been replaced in the minds of supporters by the world 'crisis'. Despite all the joy that last season's superb Treble brought and the pride they feel at Sir Alex Ferguson's knighthood, the huge optimism with which United fans justifiably anticipate the coming season will have been dented by the latest Giggs fitness bulletin. They know that United, for all their depth of talent, are never quite as effective without the Wales winger. Last season shimmered with success for United largely because Giggs was present for the most decisive matches, scoring and making breathtaking goals in a campaign which brought the Champions League and Premiership titles, as well as the FA Cup. The season before, however, when hamstring problems kept Giggs out of so many vital games, United won nothing. He was ruled out with hamstring trouble when United faltered in the Champions League after a 0-0 draw in Monaco. He was also absent when Arsenal went to Old Trafford and gained a 1-0 triumph that helped Arsene Wenger snatch the Premiership crown. Ominously, despite all that United have spent on specialist medical care, Giggs is on the treatment table once again as his team-mates embark on the quest for another unique Treble, this time to include the World Club Championship rather than the FA Cup. So far, they have declined to be any more specific about Giggs' latest setback, other than to describe it as a thigh injury. But fans would be forgiven for speculating that, if it is not the hamstring itself, it is likely to be an injury related to that weakness. What does Ferguson do? He has one of the most coveted players in the world but can never start a season confident that his match-winner will be there for the big European occasions or to fight off the evergrowing group of Premiership contenders. Selling Giggs is beyond contemplation, so Ferguson must somehow accommodate his physically flawed genius. Gary Neville will also miss the Wembley pre-season showpiece with a long-term groin injury but he claims he will be fit for England's crucial Euro 2000 ties this autumn. The United defender said: 'I may be struggling for the Charity Shield because I'll probably need a couple of games before a big game like that. But I'd hope to be available for United in the next two or three weeks and for the England games.' Contract rebel Roy Keane thinks he will be a United player this season, despite rejecting a new deal. The Republic of Ireland midfielder said: 'I'm confident we can sort it out now but it is up to the club really.' Martin Edwards has refuelled the row over United's withdrawal from the FA Cup by saying the Government did not have the knowledge to judge football issues. The United chief executive said: 'It's all right standing up in the House of Lords and saying this and that. They are not aware of the demands on professional players.' Edwards insisted United would definitely not compete in the FA Cup. He said: 'Nothing is liable to change, there's absolutely no room in the calendar. There's no chance of us being in it.'

Subject: United spark new world order By Michael Calvin Sunday, July 25, 1999 Exclusive:Manchester United have been invited to lead a football revolution that will change the face of the global game in the new millennium. European football's governing body, UEFA, have issued an unprecedented invitation for United officials to join a consultative committee aimed at rewriting the football calendar. The offer to include the world's richest club in the reform process is insurance against the threat of United leading a breakaway with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Inter Milan. 'The clubs are going to have a big say in the future,' said chairman and chief executive Martin Edwards, who has overseen the commercial expansion that promises to make United a billion-pound empire by 2002. 'Everything is in the melting pot.' United's withdrawal from the FA Cup is merely the start of an irreversible upheaval. Edwards and Peter Kenyon, his deputy, have had discussions with Asian football officials in Hong Kong, which strengthened suggestions that the season should be rationalised on a global basis. Their vision is that football will become a summer game played between February and November, with a two-month winter break. International friendlies are threatened, but FIFA president Joseph Blatter will be appeased by the intention to make the world club championship, his brainchild, a pivotal event. UEFA's recently voiced concern that the new competition could not be accommodated in the long term because of an already congested fixture list would be appeased by dramatically rewriting the football calendar. Edwards believes the Football Association are ready to allow Premiership clubs to enter the FA Cup in the fourth round. They are also set to combat fixture congestion by insisting that no replays are permitted. Edwards is looking to Chelsea to join his campaign to reduce the number of Premiership clubs to 18, but he is not optimistic about forcing through this fundamental change.
