UNITED FANS CLING ONTO CUP HOPE By Ian Parkes, PA Sport Manchester United fans are still hopeful a compromise can be reached with the Football Association over the club's participation in the FA Cup. The FA have drawn up a deadline of this Saturday to find a solution to the problem. United's presence in the World Club Championship in January is of paramount importance to the FA and the Government if England are to stage the 2006 World Cup finals, despite FIFA's remarks to the contrary. FA executive director David Davies admitted at the weekend the chances of any settlement are now extremely slim. The Independent Manchester United Supporters' Association have vigorously campaigned for their club to defend the trophy they won in May, although chairman Andy Walsh feels more could have been done by the powers that be. "People think coming out of the FA Cup was a mistake," said Walsh. "It's a high price to pay for the 2006 World Cup - destroying the integrity of the cup competition. "We have said from the start that United are still in the FA Cup until the draw for the third round and we are hopeful a solution can be found even by that stage. "But money and other influences have seemingly brought about this situation and it's shameful. The FA are responsible for looking after the integrity of the English game and they have failed in their duty. "The people who are going to suffer more than anybody are the supporters - and we were the last people to be consulted." Walsh confirms his organisation did hold talks with the FA and were invited back for a further meeting, although that did not materialise. He added: "We did speak with them, proposing alternatives like other dates available in the calendar or the possibility of extending the season. "Obviously these did not find favour. "The closer we now get to the draw (for the third round) the more difficult it is to find a solution. "It will be a great shame if Manchester United do not compete in the FA Cup." © PA Sporting Life

GEORGE IS SIMPLY THE BEST George Best again proved the legend lives on by topping a fans' poll conducted to find the greatest player ever in the British game. The former Manchester United star came top with 26% of the vote, with Sir Bobby Charlton and Kenny Dalglish well adrift in second place with 10% each. The survey was undertaken by Duckhams FansView, a national football opinion panel with a membership of over 800 supporters throughout England, Wales and Scotland. Bobby Moore, Sir Stanley Matthews, Jimmy Greaves, Denis Law, Tom Finney, John Charles and Eric Cantona filled the remaining top 10 places, with Paul Gascoigne in 11th and Gary Lineker 12th, both with 2%. England strikers Alan Shearer and Michael Owen both polled 1%. http://www.red11.org/mufc/best.htm Georgie Best Gallery [over 60 pics!] http://www.red11.org/mufc/best_gall.htm George Best / Fergie Interview 1997 http://www.red11.org/mufc/bestferg.htm Forward 63-74 5ft 9" 10st 3lbs b.Belfast, 22 May 1946 Debut v West Brom (h) 14/9/63 Career: Lisnasharragh School Belfast Schoolboys Creghagh Youth Club UNITED ground staff Aug 61, pro May 63 Dunstable Town July 74 Stockport County Nov 75 Cork Celtic Jan 76 Los Angeles Aztecs Apr-Aug 76 + May-Aug 77 + March 78 Fulham Sept 76 Fort Lauderdale Strikers June-Aug 78 + Mar-july 79 Hibernian Nov 79 San Jose Earthquakes Apr-aug 80 + Mar-aug 81 Bournemouth Mar 83 Brisbane Lions (Australia) July 83 MUFC Appearances: FL 361 - 137 g FAC 46 - 21 g FLC 25 - 9 g EUR 34 - 11 g Total: 466 apps 178 goals Greetings to Manchester United Supporters "All Over The World".

JESPER AND SHERI ON RECOVERY TRAIL Jesper Blomqvist and Teddy Sheringham have given Sir Alex Ferguson's injury-depleted squad a massive boost by declaring themselves weeks away from first-team returns. A week after three players had operations - Nicky Butt (hernia), Wes Brown (cruciate knee) and Ronnie Wallwork (appendix) - and it was revealed that Paul Scholes will have to have a six-week lay-off after a hernia injury, the news will be joyously received by Fergie. Sheringham injured a calf muscle in fergie's testimonial game two weeks ago, and his manager said: "Teddy will begin training again next week and he'll be back in contention soon." The news on Blomqvist, who has not played all season, was even more encouraging. The Swede impressed on the pre-seaosn tour of Australia and the Far East but aggravated a knee injury while out there. He had an operation six weeks ago and said: "The injury is feeling okay. I have been back a week after going back home to Sweden for a fortnight for a change of scenery. "I am at last going in the right direction now. I have come to terms with it. It is difficult to say if it will be two weeks or three before I am back, but as long as it is getting better and better and there is improvement then I am happy. "It was a clean-out of the right knee. The surgeons smoothed some rough cartilage down. It was nothing more than that. It was still very inflamed inside the knee when they went in, and that hasn't completely gone down. "It is still not 100 per cent of course. I ran for the first time in two months last week and I'll be taking it steady and be as smart as possible.I have to build it up now. I have been doing a lot of bike-riding and also walk an hour every day around the Wilmslow area where I live. "I am pleased with things but I won't be setting myself any comeback dates."

Scholes under pressure Sir Alex Ferguson will ask Paul Scholes to play two more European games before having the hernia op which will rule him out of England v Scotland. The United manager is trying to time things so he can turn to Scholes for the next three or four fixtures, after losing the services of Nicky Butt who had identical surgery last week. The decision will be Scholes' but there could be considerable pressure on him to put himself out of his country's high profile Euro 2000 play-off games against the Scots the following week. Scholes needs to ease the pain which has troubled him since the start of the season, Ferguson would probably not have made the condition public unless he intended to pull the player out of England duty. Butt will be out of action for around six weeks, and Sir Alex has circled the end of November in his diary for his comeback. He should be playing again by November 30 when United compete for the Toyota Cup - the former World Club Championship - in Tokyo, and may even make the opening game of the second phase of the Champions' League six days earlier. Scholes is in the squad for Wednesday's game in Zagreb and should also be available for the Premiership game against Aston Villa this weekend, then next Tuesday's Champions' League game with Sturm Graz. He will miss England's Euro 2000 play offs against Scotland.

Reds need a point Manchester United fly out to Croatia tomorrow with mounting doubts about their chances of qualifying for the second phase of the Champion's League. United are currently just three points ahead of Wednesday's opponents Croatia Zagreb, and feel they must get at least a point if they are to make it to the new super-group stage of the competition. Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed fears that should Zagreb win, to pull level on points with United, Marseille will put up little resistance in the final game on November 2. That would see the French and the Croatians going through and the holders knocked out. United's final first-phase game is against Sturm Graz, who are at home to leaders Marseille on Wednesday but even if they were to win that game a lot could depend on the outcome of the game in France. The Austrians' only win in the competition came last week when they beat Zagreb, and it would be a major shock if Marseille do not take maximum points from their game in Graz on Wednesday, so it will be a crucial night in Group D . Marseille have nine points to United's seven, with Zagreb on four, and with the top two going through things could not be tighter.
