Daily RED Trivia  Mon 28th June 1999:

 John Silcock died in Ashton-Under-Lyne. A loyal and dependable Full-back,
 he made his debut against Derby County in August 1919 and set a new appearance
 record for United with 449 between 1919-34. During a bleak time in United's
 history, his only honour was as part of the side who gained promotion to Division
 1 in 1925. Silcock was selected three times for England.

Barry Daily Comment:
Now is the time to sign up Keano for a lengthy contract.
News soon I hope!

Subject: NEW FA CHIEF AIDS UNITED 'WORLD' BID By David Anderson, PA Sport New Football Association chairman Geoff Thompson is confident Manchester United will take part in the inaugural World Team Championships. One of Thompson's first tasks after beating Ipswich chairman David Sheepshanks 53-31 in the vote to become head of the FA, will be to persuade United to compete in the FIFA tournament in Brazil in January. United are worried about adding to next season's already hectic fixture list and they want concessions in return for competing in the eight-team tournament between January 5-14. Yesterday manager Sir Alex Ferguson suggested giving the club a bye into the fourth round of the FA Cup. The FA will not comment on specific proposals like this, but Thompson is optimistic that a compromise can be found. "We're looking at all the options at the minute and we're trying to find a solution to the problem," he said. "We've not come up with it yet, but I'm sure we will find a solution, although it's not easy." The FA and the Government are keen for United to take part to help England's chances of staging the 2006 World Cup. Despite this, Thompson insisted the final decision would be United's. "Of course we would like them to play," he said. "But it's down to Manchester United. They received the invitation, not the FA." Regardless of United's participation in the World Team Championship, Thompson claimed the 2006 World Cup bid was on track. "I think the campaign is going very well, although it's very difficult when you've got to convince 24 people from all over the world," he said. "It's hard enough convincing 91 FA councillors to vote for you so it is difficult. But we have the best campaign and I've no doubt about that." Thompson began his reign after winning the backing of the FA councillors at their meeting at Chester by promising laudable goals such as developing the game at grass roots level, encouraging women's football and doing more for charity. He has also set his sights on gaining England a seat on UEFA's executive committee. His main priority, though, is reform of the FA. He has proposed setting up a 12 or 14-man board of directors to replace the executive committee, which would take "business and commercial decisions". He said: "Our aim is to create an organisation that runs its business efficiently while never forgetting the wider aim of participation in football as a power for good." As acting chairman Thompson has already agreed a 120million deal with the Premier League for their help in revamping the association. Sheepshanks claimed during his failed campaign that this would give the Premier League too big a say in the running of the FA. Thompson rejects this charge and it was interesting that the Premier League suffered a setback when Ian Stott defeated Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dave Richards 49-35 in the vote for vice-chairman. Sheepshanks claims Thompson must make sure his deeds match his reforming words. "While restructuring is very, very welcome, it will not in itself produce results," he said. "The restructuring has to result in the preparation of a business plan. "Once he has got his business plan together, then he should be judged according to delivery of milestones. In any business plan you have success measures whether it is how many victories England have or how many new girls teams are set up. "It's nothing personal, but this is the type of business-like approach that ensures progress is made." Thompson's election has helped stabilise the FA after the trauma of the cash-for-votes scandal and there just remains the appointment of a new chief executive. The FA have advertised for the post and they hope to draw up a shortlist soon. PA Sporting Life

Subject: United told to cough up for Keane Former Manchester United star Norman Whiteside has told the club to move heaven and earth to keep captain Roy Keane at Old Trafford. Keane's prospective new contract has still not been agreed and his contract runs out in just 12 months' time. However Whiteside believes the situation should be resolved immediately, with Keane being handed whatever financial package he is after. Whiteside said: "United should pay Roy what he wants. He's the most important link in the team and, in my view, he should be the highest paid player in the side anyway. "There are very few players like Roy around these days and, when you get them, you make sure you keep them. He's United through and through and, if they want to maintain their place at the top of the game, he has to stay."

Subject: World Club Tournament in Rio by "John Walker" Sir Alex is quite right to suggest we get a bye through the first couple of rounds of the FA Cup...it's a good bargaining point. We can make as many demands as we like, the FA and Premiership will have to give in or risk letting the Germans go into the tournament in Rio. I am certain United are enthusiastic to enter it, the merchandising possibilities must be very tempting. I am very enthusiastic to enter it because this will become a great competition and United should always lead the way, just like we led English clubs into European competition. I reckon this World Club Tournament will develop into a much bigger competition, eventually becoming the most important sports tournament in the world, of any kind. But I would say that the FA need us at least as much as we need them. If we are helping little engerlands World Cup 2006 campaign then we should bargain hard for every concession we can get: We should secure a fair fixture list at the very least, we should not have any fixture congestion which other clubs will not encounter on account of going away in January. If Sir Alex decides he can do without the Worthington Cup we should come out of it. We should use this opportunity to get assurances about reducing the Premier League to 18 clubs. We should get assurances about our English players being left out of meaningless friendlies. We should definitely go in for this competition in Rio, but we should use our negotiating power to go in without hindering our chances in the other competitions. Glory Glory Man United :)

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.
