Subject: Coventry (0) 1 Man United (0) 2 FT Aloisi 80 Scholes 62 Yorke 75 Paul Scholes gave watching England manager Kevin Keegan plenty to smile about as he came off the substitutes' bench to inspire Manchester United to the victory at Highfield Road and keep them top of the FA Carling Premiership. Scholes entered the action in the 61st minute and within 90 seconds finally turned United's increasing superiority into something tangible with the opening goal. Then the ginger-haired midfielder played a part in the build-up to the decisive second goal from Dwight Yorke which means United are still unbeaten in the Premiership since December. Scholes is suspended for England's next European Championship clash with Luxembourg on September 4 but he highlighted just how vital he will be in the make or break clash in Poland four days later. In truth United had created enough clearcut openings to have won this match more comfortably although they were never able totally dominate an ultra competitive Coventry side. The facts show that the Red Devils squandered at least three golden chances as well as hitting the woodwork. Teddy Sheringham orchestrated many of the best things on show from United while some of David Beckham's passes and crosses were a delight to behold, particularly in the opening 45 minutes. Scholes also made a massive impact in his half hour on the pitch but Coventry deserve credit for sticking to their guns and playing with their own brand of flair although they lacked a killer finish. Their cause was not helped by the loss of Noel Whelan with an ankle injury in the first half but a late goal from substitute John Aloisi ensured there was interest in the game up until the final whistle. Interest in the match had been heightened by the verbal sparrings of Sir Alex Ferguson and Coventry manager Gordon Strachan towards each other. Ferguson had written in his autobiography that he ``wouldn't want to turn his back on Strachan in a hurry.'' Strachan was clearly still hurt by the comments for at the final whistle he turned his back on Ferguson and marched straight to the tunnel. Ferguson rested Andy Cole and Paul Scholes ahead of Friday's Super Cup clash with Lazio in Monaco and brought Teddy Sheringham and Nicky Butt into his starting line-up. Coventry operated with a 4-5-1 system with Robbie Keane the only out and out striker and the opening quarter of an hour saw neither 'keeper tested. But the woodwork came to Coventry's rescue in the 16th minute when Dwight Yorke seized onto Denis Irwin's precise pass and saw his low shot beat 'keeper Magnus Hedman all ends up but cannon back off a post to safety. Coventry played with plenty of passion and skill but the clearcut chances were falling United's way and Ryan Giggs should have put them ahead in the 24th minute. Roy Keane picked out the Welsh wizard in space in the area but, with only Hedman to beat, he screwed his shot across the face of the goal and wide of the post. Gordon Strachan's side made several menacing sorties into the United penalty area with Robbie Keane again looking sharp after his two-goal debut against Derby on Saturday. But in the opening half hour the only time that United 'keeper Raimond Van Der Gouw was called into action was when he saved a curling free-kick from Coventry skipper Gary McAllister. Coventry suffered a major setback in the 34th minute when Whelan was stretchered off with a serious looking ankle injury after a touch-line collision with Phil Neville. His replacement Paul Telfer came close to making an instant impact and Irwin was forced to turn a low centre from Froggatt over his own bar as the Sky Blues substitute moved in at the far post for the kill. Another chance for United went begging in the 38th minute when Sheringham turned the back inside to Yorke 12 yards out but he sent his low effort past the post. Coventry forced three early corners after the break but they were soon forced on the defensive as United continued to pose the major threat. Yorke saw another chance go begging when he screwed his shot wide from 12 yards out after a left-wing cross from Giggs had been deflected into his path. But just as looked as if Coventry might ride their luck up popped Scholes to break the deadlock. Yorke supplied the ammunition with a cross from the right flank and Scholes did the rest as his shot from around 12 yards out flew past Hedman although there was a suggestion that he had been aided by some sort of deflection from Gary Breen. United were now camped in the Coventry half for long periods and an unsighted Hedman did well to turn a low curling effort from Irwin around the post. It came as no surprise when Yorke was in space to head home an inviting centre from David Beckham after Scholes had found him in space on the right flank. But any side managed by Strachan has a never-say-die spirit and Aloisi gave them hope when he converted a pass from Robbie Keane.

Subject: CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW TODAY THURSDAY 26/8 by Paul Hinson........ The UEFA Champions League draw will be made at 3pm UK time on Thursday. Chairman Martin Edwards has cast his expert eye on the opposition and says "Obviously we will get one strong team in our group, but it would be nice to get a new face, such as Galatasaray or Bayern Munich. Then you get paired with a middling side, the likes of FC Toblerone of Switzerland or Real Sangria of Spain. Finally you get the dross side, the one that nobody rates but who can upset the applecart in the group, such as Dynamo Burnout of Russia, Sporting Hoohaa of Portugal or Chelsea." Other clubs to watch out for: CSKA Cement (Armenia) Wacker Buttocks (Austria) FC Khazi (Azerbaijan) Torpedo Launcher (Belarus) Lokomotiv Late (Bulgaria) Anaestheticos (Cyprus) Slovan Pispor (Czech Republic) Jazz Singer (Finland) Nancy Boys (France) Quick Go Ahead Rapid (Holland) Pesky Monkeys (Hungary) IBV Cold (Iceland) Hapoel Wailing Wall (Israel) InternazioMilanoPizza (Italy) Amineer Beggin (Luxembourg) Asti Spumante (Moldova) Lodz o Lech (Poland) Spartak Lada (Slovakia) IFK Volvo (Sweden)

Subject: UNITED TOP DOGS FOR EURO DRAW Champions League holders Manchester United will be the top seeds in Thursday's draw for this season's enlarged 32-team competition. The Treble winners will be in pot one for the draw in Monte Carlo, which will be the most complicated in UEFA's history. UEFA are using a specially-designed computer programme to sort out the teams and compile the fixture list. Arsenal were due to discover which pot they would be in following Wednesday's final qualifying games. However they will definitely not face United and UEFA are keeping teams from the same country apart. The clubs will be drawn into eight groups - lettered A to H - of four for the first phase and matches will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning on September 14. Each team will play three matches on a Tuesday and three on a Wednesday. Where a country has more than two teams, the pairings for each day will be based on television audience. The first phase will be completed on November 3 and in all United will have to play 17 games to retain their crown. Last season they played 13 matches and that included their two qualifying games against LKS Lodz.

Subject: Fergie Testimonial (Telegraph) Talking Sport: Cash-strapped fans back Ferguson's nice little earner By Robert Hardman GIVEN all his successes in recent years, you might have thought that the last thing Sir Alex Ferguson really needed was a testimonial season. Originally conceived as a pension plan for any poorly paid club stalwart in the bad old days, the testimonial is now akin to a City bonus - and tax-free to boot. I do not begrudge Ferguson a penny of a testimonial season which could easily top 1 million. There are few managers who reach the 10-year threshold for a testimonial, let alone match Ferguson's record of 13 years at United and 25 in management. No one is being forced to part with their cash and the entire project has been put together by his friends. Ferguson has done more for his Old Trafford club than any of his players, some of whom have had testimonials of their own. And when all the money is totted up from the golf days, dinners and the all-star match, Ferguson will donate a tidy but unspecified sum to charities. Were there no testimonial season, those charities would not get a penny. But it says something about the bizarre way in which football is run that the new breed of football millionaire should still feel entitled to this perk. If Ferguson was managing a multi-national which had pulled off the corporate equivalent of United's Treble, he would be on bonuses and option schemes galore. But the shareholders would not be asked to cough up cash for dinners and concerts in his honour. If they did, there is no way that the proceeds would escape the Inland Revenue. The testimonial season, then, is a tax-free quirk which spares the directors from having to provide extra remuneration for top employees. United fans will be asked to do the same for Denis Irwin next season and Ryan Giggs the season after that. I have no doubt that they will be there in their tens of thousands. But that is football fans for you. They moan about the cost of their tickets while demanding new players who cost a fortune. They moan every time a new strip is launched but still buy the latest shirt rather than make do with the old one. And at the same time as moaning about the telephone-number salaries in the game, they cheerfully queue up at testimonial events to make their millionaire heroes even richer. One thing puzzles me about Ferguson's testimonial match, though. If United can squeeze in a game against a "World XI" on Oct 11 for the benefit of their manager, why can't they also squeeze in the FA Cup for the benefit of football?

Subject: Fergie to be censured over book - Soccernet By John Greechan The League Managers' Association is considering censuring its most powerful member, Sir Alex Ferguson, over comments in his autobiography. But fear of publicly criticising the most respected manager in Britain, as well as worries about Ferguson's reaction, could force the normally outspoken body to back away from open confrontation. The Manchester United boss is being investigated by his peers over attacks on fellow managers Brian Kidd and Gordon Strachan in his recent book Managing My Life. Many feel Sir Alex should be called to account, but one senior figure said yesterday: 'There are a few who are worried about tackling Fergie because he is such a big name and powerful figure.' Former United assistant Kidd, now in charge at Blackburn, was described by Ferguson as an insecure moaner who wanted to sign John Hartson ahead of Dwight Yorke and who went to the board behind his back. Coventry manager Strachan was portrayed in an even more unflattering light, described as 'someone I wouldn't want to turn my back on - a man who could not be trusted an inch'. The LMA normally takes a dim view of managers or players speaking out of line, with chief executive John Barnwell recently jumping into rows with Newcastle manager Ruud Gullit and England fielder Paul Ince. Following Gullit's criticism of referee Uriah Rennie's sending-off of Alan Shearer, Barn-well said: 'We don't condone the extreme nature of Ruud's comments. It's something we don't want repeated. We don't want to prejudge the issue of Shearer's dismissal until we see the ref's report.' Barnwell was just as harsh when Ince attacked Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier and called for the Frenchman to be dismissed. 'If a manager was quoted as saying the same things about a player, no doubt he would end up on a disrepute charge,' said Barnwell.

Subject: FORTUNE JOINS UNITED/CHAMPS DRAW THURSDAY FORTUNE JOINS UNITED By David Anderson, PA Sport South African international Quinton Fortune has completed his move to Manchester United after being issued with a work permit at Stretford Job Centre. Fortune has signed a four-year contract at Old Trafford following his transfer from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth a reported 1.5million. The midfielder, a member of South Africa's 1998 World Cup squad, has not joined in time to be considered for Wednesday night's Premiership match at Coventry. Fortune has also been ruled out of Friday's European Super Cup clash with Lazio in Monaco, and the first game he is eligible for is the Bank Holiday Monday encounter with Newcastle at Old Trafford. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson moved for Fortune after he impressed in a recent trial at the club and he believes he will prove to be a useful recruit to his already vast squad. "He's young, and I think he will be a good addition. His versatility will come in useful - he can play centre-midfield, right-side midfield, left-side midfield, in the 'hole' in a holding role in the middle of the park, or as a marker in midfield. "Quinton is a useful buy, although he costs a fortune." Fortune is eligible for the Champions League and turned down a move to Spanish side Valladolid to come to United. Ferguson is also continuing his efforts to sign a defender before next week's Champions League transfer deadline following the news that Ronny Johnsen requires surgery on his housemaids' knees.
