Four-nil - to the referee! Personal Report by OUR SALFORD LASS Since it was Christmas, the whole of Greater Manchester had shuddered to a halt - only one bus, no trains, a minimal tram service. Not fancying a 20 mile walk from home, I decided to stay the night with the son-and-heir and travel in to the game from Fallowfield on Boxing Day morning. Fortunately, the one bus running in the whole of the region was running down Wilmslow Rd, so bright and early I was walking through the quiet streets heading for the bus stop and praying it would turn up. After a 15 minute wait in the wind and rain it did finally arrive and I was soon walking through Piccadilly. It was quiet - the only people around seemed to be United fans heading for a pre-match drink. After a quick bite to eat in McDonalds, it was onto the new Metrolink route to Salford Quays and a short (and nostalgic) walk over Trafford Bridge to Sam Platts and the "Imusa room". A small (but select) group greeted me as I walked through the door. Gradually more people arrived (some looking very much the worse for wear) and a very pleasant couple of hours was spent in their company until it was time to brave the awful weather and head for (as one well-known list member calls our new-look East Stand) Disney Old Trafford. After battling the elements and the crowds (who all seemed to be heading in the opposite direction), wading through mud-filled craters and laughing at the Bradford fans (who were queued up right across the forecourt waiting to get in and looking anxious as kick-off was only 10 minutes away) I stuck my season ticket under the nose of one of the yellow-clad goons strung across my path and arrived in a very crowded and noisy East Lower concourse. I pissed off the fella selling programmes (on his own and muttering about what he'd do to his mates who hadn't turned up) by giving him a tenner for which he had to delve into his own pocket for change, and then discovered the son-and-heir and Tim E chatting away in a corner. Tim was looking distinctly damp, having fled from the Nest which he had been very put out to find had been taken over by the Bitters, and walking in the pouring rain down to the ground. The son-and-heir was all excited after having received his annual Chrissy present of official Manchester United after-shave from his step-mother. He was also busy putting on his Pacamac as the rain and hail continued to sheet down outside. Arriving in our seats, one of the guys behind us looked around in disgust at the rows and rows of pacamacs and said "I don't care how wet it gets, you'll never get me in once of those!" The son-and-heir was more philosophical - "Sod the image, I'm sick of getting pissed on!" I simply struggled to get the bloody thing on (no matter what I do, I can never get the hang of which bits of me go through which holes) and then spent the game peering out through the plastic of the hood which kept falling down over my eyes. Since the only way to keep properly dry is to keep you arms inside the thing, every time this happened, I had to struggle to get my arm out, pull the hood back, struggle to get my arm in again - by which time the wind had blown my hood off completely and I had to struggle to get my arm out again to pull it forward and struggle to get my arm back in again - by which time .......agh!! All this was done in the worst weather seen at a home game since Arsenal last season. Rain, wind, hail stones, buckets of water coming down off the edge of the roof - we were getting it all. The pitch, which had started the game in the worst state I have seen it for many years very quickly turned into a mudbath and the players were soon looking as miserable as us. Despite it all though (and probably at the thought of a warm bath afterwards and a nice bonus at the end of the season) the lads somehow managed to play some nice passing football in the first half. Unfortunately, every time they got into the box in front of us, they decided to play pass-the-ball to each other unselfishly, rather than stick the ball in the net - so it was an increasingly frustrating first half. It would have all been different of course if we'd got the blatent penalty that both the referee and his assistant chose to ignore, or if we'd been given the goal that Teddy scored quite legitimately (off-side? get off!!!) or if Fortune had scored with a scorching free-kick which hit the bar so hard the noise actually woke up some of the United fans in the front two rows. But we didn't, so the players ploughed on through the mud as we peered out from our plastic wrapping (feeling like yesterday's left-over turkey), the whole Bradford team camped out in the penalty area and the ball pinged around from player to player like something out of Fred Carno's (sp?) circus. Off the pitch it was pretty grim too. Atmosphere? What's that? Half-time brought some respite as we escaped back to the concourse behind the seats. Meeting up with a number of other list members, you could tell where they were seated by how wet/dry they were. Pat J was sneaking around stock-piling pacamacs for the months ahead when the building work is finished and we poor sods at the front are left to our own devices. 15 minutes is unfortunately a very short time, and we were soon being forced out back to our seats and the awful weather. If anything, it had got worse and I buried myself even further into my mac, with only my eyes peeping out through a very small hole at the front. If the atmosphere had been dire in the first half, it was even worse in the second with all the action taking place at the other end (I can't remember Bozzy doing anything other than keep warm throughout the second half!). The Doncaster fans were reasonably lively, but even they began to succumb to the infamous Theatre of Dreams atmosphere. It began to look like this game had "instantly forgettable nil-nil draw" written all over it when things began to liven up a bit. Off the pitch, the Bradford fans started to chant about hating Leeds which woke many United fans up out of their stupor to join in, and then there was relief all round as the crowd noticed the Soul Brothers stripping off near the touch-line. This substitution was what everyone had been screaming for and it immediately woke up both players and fans. Ole went over to the right wing and we began to take Bradford apart. Soon, Ole crossed into the box, there was a scramble close to the near post and the ball was in the net. At first we didn't know who had scored (all this was, of course, happening down the other end) but word soon went round that it was Fortune and from that moment on, there was no doubting we would win the game as wave after wave of attacks bore down on the Bradford keeper. Only a minute later, Fortune let the ball run on for Yorke and we were two-up. Bringing on the Bradford Over-Sixties Club as subs didn't help their cause (Peter Beagrie? I thought he'd retired years ago!) and it wasn't long before Cole scored what was the goal of the game for me. Picking the ball up at the half-way line after a long ball from Ole, he sprinted through the Bradford defence and slotted the ball home, with the Bradford keeper getting a touch on it but being unable to stop it going into the net. Finally, our Captain had to get in on the act with a fine goal a couple of minutes from the end leaving the Bradford players and fans stunned and probably asking themselves "how did it all go so wrong in such a short time?" Now where have we heard that one before? :)) Off the pitch, that last 20 minutes was brilliant. The Bradford fans had been singing "One-nil to the referee" after the first goal, of course they got the chant thrown back at them with each goal - "2-nil ........", "3-nil ........, " "4-nil, to the referee" and "We want 5". After a couple of surging runs forward from Jaap (during which there were 50,000 fans willing him to score), there were some stadium-wide chants of "Yip Jaap Stam" and of course, "Who put the ball in the German's net?" But the best time was a full (and very enthusiastic) rendition of the "Twelve Days of Cantona" about 5 minutes from the end - it was, however, rather spoiled by the players almost scoring as we belted out the final verse - your timing could be better lads! When the final whistle blew there were smiling faces all around as we stripped off our pacamacs and headed to the Nest for an after-match drink, only pausing on the way to find a lifeguard for the lad who had refused to put on his mac - he was last seen having gallons of water pumped out of his lungs. My man of the match? Fortune had an excellent full debut, Silvestre is looking the part more every day and Ole was brilliant on the right for the last 20 minutes, but for a typical towering performance and head and shoulders above everyone else on the pitch as far as I'm concerned (both literally and in terms of skill and commitment) - who else but Stam. I can't say any more about him than I've said over and over again in the past so I will simply re-iterate what many more knowledgeable people than I have already said - this man is simply the best central defender Manchester United have ever had.

FORTUNE TO BE DROPPED DESPITE GOAL Sir Alex Ferguson is set to drop Quinton Fortune for Tuesday's trip to Sunderland - despite the South African marking his first start in United colours with a goal in the 4-0 win over Bradford City. Fortune only got his chance after Ryan Giggs was out with flu. And if the Welshman recovers, he will start at the Stadium of Light. Said Fergie: "It depends on Ryan Giggs. If he's fit I'll start him at Sunderland, to be honest. "But I don't think there's any need for Quinton to feel he's been passed by in any way. I think he realises he worked very, very hard yesterday and that will have an effect on him. It's two games in only three days and Ryan hopefully will bring us that freshness which hopefully will make a difference. "He's young and a left-sided player, and you don't get many of those for 1.5m. I thought at that price it wasn't a bad deal. We knew about the quality he had - we'd seen it before in the World Cup - and we were semi-interested when he was at Tottenham." Fortune is delighted to have got his first start after three substitute appearances: "I'm very grateful and very happy to be given the opportunity to play. "I have to thank the gaffer and Steve McClaren for showing confidence in me and giving me the opportunity. The goal was a bonus but the most important thing was the result and I have to thank all the lads who helped me. I'm just a fortunate man. "My aim is to try to build on my performance and try to grow from here. It's not just to look at this little moment that has been given to me but hopefully to get some more games under my belt. "I'm patient. It will be hard from now on but I'm willing to work hard and try to get the opportunities." David Beckham looks likely to miss the Sunderland game with a hamstring injury.

Sunderland v REDS Preview REID WON'T RISK PHILLIPS Peter Reid promises not to take any risks with injury victim Kevin Phillips - despite the desperate need for the striker to play against Manchester United. Reid is no doubt mindful that Phillips has a similar injury to the one that hampered Michael Owen's comeback to fitness this season, and the fact that the Liverpool striker twice broke down when making premature returns and eventually struggled for eight months to overcome the problem. Sunderland chief Reid will protect his young star despite the fitness of the FA Carling Premiership top scorer holding the key to the Wearsiders ability to bounce back from their five-goal Boxing Day mauling. The England striker missed his first game of the season at Everton, and Sunderland crashed 5-0. Phillips was sidelined after suffering a hamstring injury in training the previous day and boss Reid refused to risk playing the 19-goal front man at Goodison Park. Now Sunderland will be working desperately to get Phillips fit for the clash with Manchester United at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland looked hopelessly out of sorts up front and Phillips' return is crucial to the Premiership new boys' title credibility. Meanwhile David Beckham is set to miss Manchester United's trip to the north east at Sunderland with a hamstring injury. Beckham was absent from the Boxing Day win over Bradford City after a week of treatment and while Sir Alex Ferguson hopes his England star might make it, he admits: "We will have to wait and see. "His hamstring is a bit tight and we have to be a bit careful. There was no chance of his playing on our pitch on Boxing Day." With Beckham the main doubt, Ferguson is more optimistic that Ryan Giggs will return after missing the Bradford game with flu and could be contemplating more changes after the gruelling game in the Old Trafford mud. Quinton Fortune, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are the candidates to stand down with Giggs, Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke taking over. Yorke and Cole were used as substitutes against Bradford and both scored as United took their tally to 16 goals in their last four games.

PUT THE PITCH RIGHT DEMANDS FERGUSON Sir Alex Ferguson has told the Manchester United ground staff to sort out Old Trafford's atrocious pitch before their next home game in four weeks time. The Manchester United boss blasted the quagmire of a surface as "terrible" after yesterday's 4-0 win over Bradford. Ferguson is clearly losing patience with the pitch and its condition is worse than ever. He cannot understand that despite being relaid four times in the past 19 months the surface remains the worst in the Premiership. "The pitch was very heavy," he said on ClubCall. "It was terrible and the players would need to be Trojans to get through that. "We can give a bit of thought to our next game because it's a month away and we have to make sure the pitch is in good condition for that game." Ferguson is anxious that head groundsman Keith Kent and his staff improve the surface ahead of United's next home game against Arsenal on January 24. Fortunately Kent and his team have four weeks to work on the pitch because United will be in Brazil competing in the World Club Championship. It looks likely, though, that United will have to relay the pitch again in the summer to try and solve the problem. The grass was originally dug up in May 1998 because the crown had become too high and spectators in the front seats could not see the opposite side. The pitch did not bed properly and it was dug up again that October. United thought they had cracked the problem when they laid a new surface in May, but that did not work and it was dug up two months ago. This fourth surface has failed because of the heavy rain in November and December.

Ferguson's sitting on a Fortune Ian Stewart Sir Alex Ferguson is set to give Quinton Fortune a harsh reminder of what life at Manchester United is like by dropping him for Tuesday's trip to Sunderland. Old Trafford boss Ferguson has admitted he will axe midfielder Fortune, who marked his full debut with a goal in the 4-0 defeat of Bradford on Sunday, if Ryan Giggs is fit for the Stadium of Light clash. The South African got his Boxing Day chance because of the absence of Giggs, but the Welsh winger will replace the former Atletico Madrid star if he recovers from flu in time. Ferguson admitted on Monday: "It depends on Ryan Giggs. If he's fit, I'll start him at Sunderland, but I don't think there's any need for Quinton to feel he's been passed by in any way." Fortune is just delighted to have got his first start at United four months after moving to Old Trafford. He made three substitute appearances before getting his chance on Sunday and he said: "I'm very grateful and very happy to be given the opportunity to play. The goal was a bonus but the most important thing was the result and I have to thank all the lads who helped me. I'm just a fortunate man." David Beckham, who missed the Bradford game with a hamstring injury, is United's biggest doubt for today's clash. Meanwhile, Sunderland boss Peter Reid promises not to take any risks with injury victim Kevin Phillips - despite the desperate need for the striker to play against United. Reid - who saw his side, minus Phillips, humbled 5-0 by Everton on Sunday - is no doubt mindful that Phillips has a similar injury to the one that hampered Michael Owen's comeback to fitness this season, and the fact that the Liverpool striker twice broke down when making premature returns and eventually struggled for eight months to overcome the problem. Phillips was sidelined after suffering a hamstring injury in training the previous day and Sunderland will be working desperately to get him fit for today's clash. Reid said: "I'm hoping Kevin makes it. I decided it was not a risk worth taking for the Everton game, he wasn't 100 per cent. But if there's any danger, any danger at all and he's not quite right I won't play him against United, it's just not worth it."
