Subject: WIGAN DATE FOR UNITED [MEN] Alex Ferguson is on his way to Wigan! The Manchester United manager and his star-studded squad will add extra spice to a milestone event writes Neil Barker. United are topping the bill in the historic first public game at Wigan Athletic's new ground. United will provide the opposition for John Benson's Wigan team on Wednesday, August 4 in a special challenge match at the state of the art JJB Stadium. Wigan's millionaire owner Dave Whelan was always keen to see Fergie's treble winners face Wigan for what should be a fantastic night. Fergie has promised to field a side including several first teamers. Ticket details will be announced in the next fortnight. The game is set to be a 25,000 sell-out

Subject: UNITED FACING MARATHON CAMPAIGN Manchester United could end up playing a staggering 77 games next season. That is the incredible number of matches they face if they go all the way in the knock-out competitions and play the maximum four replays in the FA Cup. Even if United fall at the first hurdle in the cups, they would still play a minimum of 51 matches. Last season United played 13 European games, but they face 17 if they are to reach next season's final and defend their crown. Then there is the World Team Championship between 5 and 14 January and if United participate that could add four more games to their hectic schedule. In addition, there is the one-off European Super Cup against Lazio in Monaco on 27 August and the Toyota Cup against Palmeiras in Tokyo on 30 November. The Premiership fixtures for next season were released on Thursday and already United must rearrange their home game against Newcastle on 28 August because it clashes with the European Super Cup and Old Trafford chairman and chief executive Martin Edwards admitted the huge number of games was a worry. "Anyone can see the problems for themselves by just looking at the fixtures," he said. "You can see that it does require quite a bit of thought to plan it all out. There is an early start on 7 August because the season has been brought forward to ease fixture congestion caused by the increased number of European matches that have to be played. There's six matches which together with the Champions League makes 23 games before even considering the domestic programme. So something has got to give." Even UEFA general secretary Gerhard Aigner is concerned about the extra demands the enlarged Champions League will place on players. When he visited Old Trafford last season he said: "There is a lot of pressure on the players and we're asking them to play even more matches. Those who are successful will take the burden and play more matches and this is a concern for us, especially when we talk about England with 20 teams in the Premier League. That makes 38 matches, whereas in normal leagues in Europe they have 18 teams which makes 34 games." MUFC Hon.

Subject: Man United may sidestep Cup By Derek Hunter Sunday, June 27, 1999 Manchester United are almost certain to be allowed to pull out of the Worthington Cup to ensure their participation in the inaugural World Clubs Championship in Brazil in January. Their exemption from the Football League showpiece would be a big blow to the sponsors and it is only one of a series of measures being considered by the FA to ease a crippling fixture burden. United's entry in the prestigious FIFA tournament is regarded as essential, although manager Alex Ferguson has already expressed concern about the physical toll on his players. England's representation could be vital to the FA's hopes of staging the World Cup in the country in 2006. --------------------- Electronic Telegraph THE Football Association are trying to devise a way for Manchester United to play in the FIFA Club World Champiopnships in Brazil next January without jeopardising their chances of retaining the Premiership, FA Cup and Champions' League titles. And United manager Alex Ferguson claims he has come up with the perfect solution - give his club a bye in the early rounds of the FA Cup. However, his suggestion is sure to meet with fierce opposition from Premiership rivals. The FA executive director, Davies Davies, revealed yesterday he was taking charge of trying to engineer a window in United's season to allow them to take 10 days out to compete in the new FIFA competition. The FA are anxious for United to take part in the competition because it would further promote their World Cup 2006 bid. But the tournament clashes with a United Premiership match against Middlesbrough and the fourth-round date for the FA Cup.

Subject: No charge to answer over Keane bar fracas Manchester United captain Roy Keane is to escape prosecution over claims that he kicked two women in a bar. Sources close to the affair revealed last night that police investigating the allegations against the 27-year-old Irish midfielder believe there is no case to answer. Because Keane is such a high-profile personality, police are likely to seek advice from the Crown Prosecution Service. But legal sources say the CPS is expected to agree the matter should be dropped.

Subject: BOSNICH ADMITS HE'S TAKEN A BIG GAMBLE BY JOINING UNITED By Ian Cruise (365) MARK BOSNICH believes he has taken the biggest gamble of his life by joining Manchester United. The former Aston Villa goalkeeper finally ended speculation about his future earlier this month when he agreed the deal to return to his first club, but he knows it's a decision that could backfire on him with spectacular consequences. The Australian international will be handed the massive task of replacing Peter Schmeichel, but he knows that if it goes wrong the only way is down. He told Football365: "I accept this move could make or break my career. But in the end I followed my heart. It was the right thing to do." However, although he recognises the size of the task he faces, the 27-year-old insists that the pressure won't be too much for him. "It's part of the territory," he said. "I'm big and ugly enough to look after myself. I don't need the critics to tell me whether I've played well or not, I know myself. I'm my biggest critic. I've also had a great deal of experience at this level and I feel I can handle just about anything. "Of course people will draw comparisons with me and Peter Schmeichel, that is inevitable, isn't it? But I'm not Peter Schmeichel, nor will I ever be. For nearly a decade he has been arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the world, I don't think anyone would argue with that. What I'm striving to do is not emulate him, but follow successfully in his footsteps." Bosnich also denies that he settled on Old Trafford because that was where the most cash was on offer. He insisted: "Contrary to what some people say, money was not a motivating factor. It wasn't when Dwight Yorke joined United because he could have earned more by staying at Villa. It's a case of taking up the challenge and they don't come bigger than this. "Some people would call me stupid, others brave. All I know is there is a very thin line between both. I could have lived like a king at other clubs. I turned down ludicrous money from other European sides. Leading up to the move to United people were saying I was turning down this and that and asking for this and that. If any of this was true and I was only in it for the money, I would have gone to another club.
