Daily RED Trivia  Wed 28th April 1999:

 Newton Heath reformed as Manchester United. John Davies was the
 saviour, injecting £3000 to pay off debts and buy new players. Davies 
 became Chairman and the clubs colours were changed to Red and White from
 the previous White and Blue. Within 6 years the struggling Division 2 side
 were crowned as League Champions.

 United celebrate promotion to the First Division with a 6-0 win against
 Burton United at Bank Street in their final game. Sagar 2, Picken 2, Peddie and
 Wall scored in front of 16,000. Team was: Moger, Holden, Blackstock, Downie,
 Roberts, Duckworth, Wombwell, Peddie, Sagar, Picken, Wall.  

 Brian Greenhoff born in Barnsley. A versatile performer, he made his debut
 at Ipswich Town in September 1973. Greenhoff came through the trauma of
 relegation and collected a Division 2 Championship medal in 1975, and played
 in the FA Cup Finals of 1976 and 1977. Made a total of 270 appearances and
 scored 17 goals between 1973-79. Also won 18 caps for England. Transferred
 to Leeds United for £350,000 in August 1979.


Barry Daily Comment: 
this message came thro' on the mailing list today......
Spoke to the Spanish FA who are dealing with applications for the tickets
yesterday.  They informed me that all tickets have been sold, even though

Subject: Van der Sar: United are out to get me By Ken Lawrence Tuesday, April 27, 1999 Edwin Van der Sar claims he is Manchester United's top target to replace goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel. The 28-year-old Holland and Ajax keeper was approached last week. He said: 'Manchester United were in contact with me to ask about my feelings and availability about joining them if a transfer could be agreed between the clubs. Obviously, I have to be interested.' Van der Sar, who also interests Barcelona, will cost around £5million, a British record for a goalkeeper. But United, having paid £10.75m to capture fellow Dutchman Jaap Stam - a world record for a defender - will not baulk at the fee. However, it may be the only piece of major business that manager Alex Ferguson does in the coming months after chairman Martin Edwards' declaration that no other funds would be available. Aston Villa keeper Mark Bosnich was Ferguson's original target but the Australian, who left United to return home before re-establishing himself in the Midlands, wants too much money. Roma were ready to sign a pre-contract agreement with Bosnich whose contract expires in June but his suggested demands of £60,000 per week have put them off. Even if Bosnich were to drop his salary demands by a third, United would still find him too expensive for their strict pay scale which rises to a maximum of £25,000 per week. Van der Sar, like Stam - who has been pushing for United to bring in his fellow countryman - is prepared to stick to the budget because he knows that involvement with the world's most glamorous club would pay him in other ways such as sponsorships and endorsements. United have been linked with other goalkeepers, including Oscar Moens (AZ Alkmar), Carlos Roa (Real Mallorca) and Gianluigi Buffon (Parma) but Van der Sar, having indicated his desire to move to Old Trafford, has left them behind in the ratings. Schmeichel, meanwhile, is certain to captain United in the last match of his English career - the Champions League Final against Bayern Munich in Barcelona on May 26. The uncertainty over Bosnich's plans led to Villa manager John Gregory last night appealing for him to come clean and declare where his future lies. Gregory, anxious to start planning for next season, said: 'We are resigned to the fact that Mark will be leaving and if that is the case we would have to make a signing as quickly as possible. It would be a big help if Mark would tell us his plans now.' Bosnich insists he will not make a decision until the season is over and said: 'I have been having continuing dialogue with chairman Doug Ellis.' Villa visit Old Trafford on Saturday and Bosnich is battling to recover from the ankle injury which ruled him out at the weekend.

Subject: Phillips And Brown Get England Call England coach Kevin Keegan has handed first caps to Kevin Phillips, of Sunderland, and Manchester United's Wes Brown for the friendly with Hungary. Phillips has been a prolific goalscorer again this season despite several injury problems and he has been a major factor in Peter Reid's side regaining their Premiership status. Brown gets the nod after impressing for the England Under-21 side this season and for some assured displays for United. Phillips, chosen ahead of Leicester's Emile Heskey, will have England skipper Alan Shearer as his strike partner in a side mixing youth with experience. Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman will win his 50th cap against the Hungarians at the age of 35. The midfield has an experienced look about it with the exception of Tottenham's Tim Sherwood, who picked up his first cap in last month's impressive victory over Poland. Liverpool's Steve McManaman is picked again and seems certain to be given his preferred role out wide on the right flank despite failing to impress in the Euro 2000 qualifying victory against Poland last month.

Subject: NO BID FOR VAN DER SAR, CLAIM UNITED Edwin Van der Sar claims Manchester United have approached him to move to Old Trafford - but the club insist they have not begun transfer talks. The Holland and Ajax goalkeeper says United contacted him last week to sound him out about a move to Old Trafford. However United solicitor and director Maurice Watkins insisted no approach has been made. "I'm not aware of anything of that nature," he said. United have been consistently linked with Van der Sar since Peter Schmeichel announced he would be leaving Old Trafford in the summer. He has made no secret of his desire to leave Ajax and join United and his cause has been championed by Reds defender and Dutch team-mate Jaap Stam. Van der Sar is under contract at Ajax and the Dutch club would want at least £5million to part with one of their few remaining stars. He said: "Manchester United were in contact with me to ask about my feelings and availability about joining them if a transfer could be agreed between the clubs. Obviously I have to be interested." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: United play down Van der Sar claims «« Manchester United have refuted Dutch goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar claims they approached him last week concerning a possible summer move. The £5m-rated keeper has been widely tipped as the likely successor to Peter Schmeichel, when the big Dane moves on at the end of the season. And the Ajax star said: "Manchester United were in contact with me to ask about my feelings and availability about joining them if a transfer could be agreed." But United solicitor and director Maurice Watkins said: "I'm not aware of anything of that nature." Aston Villa's Mark Bosnich and highly-rated youngster Richard Wright of Ipswich have also been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer, but it appears Van der Sar is top of manager Alex Ferguson's wanted list.

          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
