Daily RED Trivia  Mon 29th March 1999:

29/3/1943: Ronnie Briggs born in Belfast. Briggs suffered a nightmare debut in goal when
 conceding 6 at Leicester City in January 1961, and made just 11 appearances between
 1961-62 before joining Bristol Rovers. He was capped twice by Northern Ireland.

1975: United close in on the Division 2 title win with a 2-1 win against York City
 at Old Trafford watched by 46,802. Lou Macari and Willie Morgan scored for
 the Reds. Team was: Stepney, Forsyth, Houston, Morgan, Greenhoff, Buchan,
 Coppell, McIlroy, Pearson, Macari, Daly.

Barry Daily Comment:

Dwight wins again!
Dwight Yorke has again scooped the ManUtd.com Player of the Month award.
His displays in February ensured that he garnered over 50% of the 17,549
votes cast, to pick up his third award so far. He also won in November and
January. Another hat-trick for Yorkie! Is there no stopping him?

Subject: Farewell to Dennis by RED KELLY Friday 26th March 1999 will live in my memory forever as one of those special days that come along every now and again because I happen to support Manchester United. I know there wasn't a game on, but we were on our way to Old Trafford nevertheless. And the reason - to pay tribute to the life of Dennis Viollet. As the invitation said: "The family would like to invite you to a Memorial Tribute to be held in the Trafford Suite at Manchester United Football Club. At Dennis' request, this is to be a happy occasion and not one for mourning." Helen had given me a handful of these tickets to distribute and so a few of us lucky supporters had the opportunity to not only pay tribute to United's record goalscorer, but also to mingle with some of the other United legends who played alongside the great man or who followed shortly afterwards. We thought we had left in plenty of time and had arranged to meet the others at 4.30 in the Trafford at the top of Warwick Road (sorry, Sir Matt Busby Way). I also carried a ticket for Frank Clarke who would be there along with our passenger, Olaf, from the League Managers' Association, as a representative from the managers. Unfortunately we were running late due to the sheer volume of traffic and after several phone calls we arranged for Pete and Hal to link up with Frank who had been sitting in his car outside the pub waiting for us. What anyone thought as they passed the pub seeing him sat there I wouldn't know and maybe the rumour machine is rife today with speculation. But I can assure you that he won't be taking over from the wizard and nor will he be going back to City! Talking of the wizard, he was away in Italy so we didn't have the pleasure of his company which was one of the few disappointments. The other was that neither Linda, Sean or DA could join us at this feast of nostalgia. You'd have loved it and I really am sorry you weren't there. We just made it into the Trafford Suite in time to hear the address and then the immediate family went down to the pitch to scatter some of Dennis' ashes into the turf at the Stretford End. We sat outside in the exec seats in the main stand (South) and watched from afar. It was a poignant moment to witness as a legend came home to one of his favourite haunts and I only hope we can dedicate any success we enjoy this season to his memory. Perhaps he could arrange give the ball a nudge now and again and divert it past the opposition keeper. Maybe he could even score us the winner against Juve. A small patch of turf had been removed from the goalmouth where Dennis will remain in spirit forever. A fitting tribute to the man who's wish was that his ashes be scattered "on some soccer field somewhere". He was too modest to suggest that the soccer field could have been Old Trafford, but I'm sure he must be happy with the choice. The ceremony over, we went back inside to the warmth of the Trafford Suite where United had opened a free bar. Yes - I did say free - I was astonished too! So there I was standing at the bar along with the likes of Noel Cantwell, Shay Brennan, David Herd, Wilf Mc Guinness, Maurice Setters and David Sadler. Then along came Nobby. And then came the King. To any of you who are too young to know who the King is - it's Denis Law. He was the first and still remains the true King of Old Trafford and to shake him by the hand was a dream come true for me as he has always been one of my heroes. To have been there and witnessed the Lawman at his greatest was a thrill you cannot imagine, he was a superb player who was lightening quick and as he approached the bar, with a deft bodyswerve he slid past David Sadler, dummied Wilf and was only stopped dead in his tracks by Nobby's outstretched foot. Nothing changes then! Were we like kids in a sweetshop or what? Too bloody right we were! United had done us proud with a plentiful buffet selection of free spicy food washed down with free beer! Then it was up to Noel Cantwell and Alex Johnson (a longstanding journalist friend who broke the news about Dennis) to give the official speeches. Followed by a couple of poems, the second of which was written about that day in St Augustine by the very man who had been there with Dennis and Helen in the car as they drove around the old Spanish town. We were then free to mingle, collect autographs and take photos. No doubt Pete will recount some stories, as he will doubtless remember them better than me, but try as he might he couldn't persuade the Lawman to sign "The King". In fact Denis had been "out with Besty" the night before and was still recovering! Some of the players had gone early as they had other engagements to attend, so we didn't get the opportunity to have photos taken with Nobby for instance which was a great pity, but we did all get snapped with the Lawman who was as accommodating as always. We then sat down with Albert Scanlon and the Black Prince (Alex Dawson) and chatted for some time until they also had to go. I'm not going to go into the reason why Dennis Viollet nicknamed him the Black Prince here though - oooer! Got you intrigued though eh!? These two, just like the others were only too happy to talk about the old times, but it was a very strange moment for me when Albert asked me to sign his prints of Dennis that I'd just given him! I'd been asking for his signature earlier and now he was asking for mine!! I'd taken along a few of the Fund prints to distribute freely amongst anyone who wanted them (mostly the family), but had wanted to give the Black Prince a copy of the one depicting the '58 Final as he is on it to the left of Bobby, who wasn't there because he was out of the country. There was one last treat left for me. I was collared by Jack Carmichael, who was the one had originally phoned me with the news of Dennis a couple of weeks or so ago. He's been a friend of the family for some time and is Noel's mate. He asked me to follow him as he had found one of the doors to the stadium had been left open. We went outside into the empty ground. By this time it was dark, but the lights of the new North Stand were still blazing. The place looked superb - completely empty save for the lights opposite, the lights of the Trafford Suite and the security booth above L Stand. Jack said we should sneak down to the pitch and take photos of each other! So like a couple of naughty boys we wandered down past the directors box, the dugout and down to the pitch where we opened the gate and strode on to the hallowed turf. The first thing that struck me was that it felt harder under foot than I had expected. Not that I've ever set foot on a pro pitch before, but I'd expected it to have been more springy somehow. It was drizzling with rain, but neither of us cared as we acted like daft bastards standing in the centre of the pitch taking photos. It was yet another special moment to be logged in the Windridge memory banks. And if anyone from OT is reading this - sorry - couldn't help it!! So that was it. It was difficult to leave, but we had a long drive home to look forward to. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Dennis Viollet Fund, you helped to make the last few months of a great United player a little more comfortable. We managed to give a little bit back to a player who gave us so much. Copyright RED KELLY 1999

Subject: The Toffees come unstuck at all levels! Personal report from: OUR SALFORD LASS Hi folks, United reserves played their first game back at OT yesterday (playing Everton), so your intrepid reporter took herself along. With the daughter in tow (as she's always reminding me, my real heir - her being 3 years older than the son-and-heir!), we set off on a beautiful Spring day. The sun was shining, the sky was blue and everyone was walking around in t-shirts and wearing smiles which reflected the arrival of Spring. On our way into Stockport we saw the first lambs in the lower fields - it was the sort of day that makes you glad to be alive and a perfect day to watch a game of footie. For once, the public transport system was at its most efficient and we arrived at the top of Sir Matt Busby Way an hour-and-a-half before kick-off. Looking around me, I began to wonder whether I had had a brainstorm and it was actually a first team game! Loads of people around, all the burger bars and souvenir stalls doing a thriving business and mounted police - I'd never seen so much fuss over a reserve game before! Arriving on the forecourt, we realised that East Stand was open, so scooted across to see if we could get in there instead of going into South Stand which is usually the only stand open for reserve games. The notice said "Tickets only". "Does that include season tickets?" I asked. "No", said the steward "You have to go in South Stand as usual". Sulking, we wandered round the corner, wondering what was going on. Arriving at our usual seats (just to the right of the United dugout), we were surprised to find that not only had they opened East Stand, but all four stands were open and were gradually filling up with fans. Someone behind us answered our question - United had been giving free tickets away in McDonalds! The light finally dawned when we realised that the game was live on MUTV - obviously United wanted to make sure they had an audience to make the game look good on TV! This is good news for those of us worried about pay-per-view, who knows, they could start paying us to attend first team games, just to make sure there's an atmosphere! A development I am looking forward to. Whatever the reason, their ploy worked because the final attendance figure was over 15,000! Only Eric has attracted more to a reserve game, as far as I know. So there we were, with an hour to kill before kick-off. And what fun we had in that hour! I thought Fred the Red fun days were bad enough, but the razz-ma-tazz that accompanies live MUTV games makes the fun days look like serious occasions! At times we did wonder whether we'd wandered into the wrong venue - was this a pop concert or a football match? First of all, we had good old Fred warming up the crowd - pretending to do moonies in front of thousands of kids who thought this was the funniest thing they'd ever seen. Then we had a group of fifty teenage girls from Ireland just behind us. They were having a great time, singing Keane and Irwin songs and screaming their heads off most of the time (as I said, more like a Boyzone concert than a football match!). Then Keith Fane made his big mistake - he invited "half-a-dozen" of them to come down onto the pitch and dance to the latest Steps record (for all you old farts out there, Steps are a band!). Of course, all 50 of them descended onto the pitch. Fane and our dearly loved Head of Security spent the next 10 minutes trying to control them and it was hysterical to watch - the best laugh I've had since the Everton physio ran across the pitch at the recent first team game. Finally, with a sigh of relief from Fane, the girls were back in the stand and the players came out onto the pitch. We all lost the use of our ears for the rest of the game when the girls spotted John O'Shea and gave him a very loud, Irish welcome. So it was within relief that those of us over the age of 16 greeted the start of the game. I was delighted to be back at a reserve game again, I love watching the youngsters but haven't been able to get to Bury this season, so it was spot-the-player for the first 10 minutes. It's amazing how much some of these lads change in a few months. Looking down towards our penalty area, I had to do a double-take - what was Peter doing here? No, it wasn't Peter Schmeichel, it was Nick Culkin - looking more like Peter than Peter does! I'm beginning to wonder whether United are involved in some sort of cloning experiment! He stands like Peter, moves like Peter and after seeing a couple of the saves he made yesterday, he appears to be developing into a keeper who could eventually be as good as Peter. The old guy behind us even called him Peter on one occasion! Also playing were Michael Clegg, John Curtis, Jonathan Greening and of course, Superstar himself. The first half was excellent. It was almost all United and the movement was excellent. Everton reserves, like their first team counterparts, had their heads down before the game started. Apart from Michael Branch, they didn't really have any ideas. For the second game running, John O'Kane looked pretty miserable at the back - he must be wondering whether things could have worked out differently for him. We came close a number of times in the first half, and then to the delight of the Irish girls (and the misery of our ear drums) John O'Shea scored after a scramble in the Everton goal mouth. Ian Fitzpatrick soon put us two-up and it was all over for Everton. Just before the end of the first half, Fitzpatrick scored his second and the game was over. Half-time brought more "entertainment" on the pitch with the arrival of the local girl band Cleopatra. For the next fifteen minutes, it was loud music and screaming teenagers! Keith Fane nearly had another heart attack as the timing went adrift and the players and officials came back on the pitch whilst the girls were still singing. Much to our amusement, he was standing in front of the dug-out going red in the face and gesticulating to absolutely no effect! The girls carried on to the bitter end of their tape, even trying to get David May to join in towards the end! Eventually, the game restarted and we sat through a very boring second half! Everton just weren't going to do anything and the United lads seemed to have settled for a 3-0 win. We entertained ourselves listening to the England game on the radio - particularly as the Ginger Prince was having such a good time in the sun at the Ashtray. So to the players - as I said above, I was impressed with Nick Culkin. I was also impressed with John O'Shea - he's a central defender, still looking like he could do with some more weight, but a tall lad who is light on his feet and fast. Superstar didn't impress, unfortunately, you can tell he hasn't had a first team game for a long time. After spending the last few months watching Jaap Stam, May just didn't look the business. I hope I'm wrong, because I really like the lad, but I can't see him getting back in the first team ahead of either Berg, Johnsen or Brown. Michael Clegg had some good moments and played better than recent reports would have forecast. My overall man of the match though, would probably be Ian Fitzpatrick, if only for the period during which he scored his two goals. Towards the end of the game, it was nice to see John O'Kane get a round of applause from the United faithful as he left the pitch, the lad looked miserable. So it was back into the hills, listening to the rest of the England game, and a round-up of the rest of the football, on the radio. This is the first time I have listened to 5 Live - usually I listen to local radio football coverage. What a bunch of arrogant d***heads!! At one point, they wanted to know why there was a Nationwide League programme on whilst something as important as the England game was on! They seem to think that all other sport should be called off (including rugby) so that everyone can sit at home and listen to the England game with them!! We discovered to our amusement that City had had a famous victory - thanks to two goals from Terry Cooke (one a Beckham-like free kick) and had moved to the heady heights of 5th in the second division (no relegation this season then - blast!). We were also delighted to hear that Ole had scored two for Norway - so much for his coach's assertions that not starting regularly would spoil his international career! But the best part of the post-match day was watching the highlights of the England game later in the evening. It was sooooo good to see the England fans having to give a Manchester United player a standing ovation - I did enjoy that!!

Subject: Blomqvist Bust-Up Rumour Jesper Blomqvist wants showdown talks with Alex Ferguson over his lack of recent first team opportunities. The £4.5 million Swede has started just two Premiership matches during the past two months amid rumours of a dressing room bust-up with assistant boss Steve McClaren. Fergie tempted Blomqvist to Old Trafford by promising the 24-year-old he would switch Ryan Giggs to the middle to accommodate him on the left-hand side. But in reality the manager has used Blomqvist as cover for the Welshman who has suffered from recurring hamstring injuries in the past two seasons. However, reports that the Swede could be sold in the summer if United sign another left footer are premature. Ferguson's patience with Karel Poborsky and Jordi Cruyff in recent seasons suggests Blomqvist will be given a fair crack of the whip before he gets shipped out. Blomqvist's adviser Anders Carlsson said: "All he wants is a fair chance." The winger has been in Sweden this week playing down rumours of a rift after being left out of the line-up to face Everton last Sunday.

Subject: Juve Watch Juve are getting all in a tizzy because the French national team is planning to play Zidane against Armenia in Wednesday's Euro qualifier. Apparently, the French doctors looked at Zizou's knee and decided it's just fine. However, the Juve doctors insist he's still a very sick man, one foot in the grave, very doubtful for Old Trafford, etc., etc. Quite. They've been found out. Fergie will no doubt have been following the exchanges and will now be convinced that Zidane will be playing in the first leg, no matter one bilge gets spewed forth from Turin. Not that the Italians are lying, though, oh no ... After yesterday's game between Denmark and Italy, I'm sure Fergie would like to start talking about pasta and diving Italians again. Certainly, Italy's second goal by Conte was set up by a free kick which Inzaghi won by blatantly diving. He appeared to do one of those neat litle trip-yourself-up tricks which look so convincing till the TV cameras do the slow-motion replay. We need a Robo Cop for a referee these days. __________ Terry Saudi

Subject: Cooke has right recipe By Trevor Haylett TERRY COOKE, the diminutive winger on loan from Manchester United to their City rivals, showed here how much he has learned from watching David Beckham hone his dead-ball skills. Cooke's two free-kicks gave City another hearty push on the road back to the First Division. Their unbeaten run now stretches to 16 games and they made light of what had been billed a serious test of their credentials. Reading, their new stadium throbbing with a record 20,000 crowd, and their team improved by several of Tommy Burns' deadline-day signings, were starting to assemble genuine reasons themselves for reclaiming the higher division place they forfeited last May along with City. For half an hour Reading held on to parity but, having gone behind, the issue was never in doubt. They lost Alan Maybury, a loan signing from Leeds, to a red card midway through the second half but by then they were two goals adrift and could have no complaints. It was a foul on Dickov, leading to City's third goal, that saw Maybury ordered off and it was an earlier offence on Cooke that set the visitors on their victory path. From 25 yards, Cooke curled the ball home with Scott Howie slow to respond. If the moment brought Beckham instantly to mind then so did Cooke's attempt on goal 10 minutes later when Howie cleared the ball to him and from 40 yards Cooke lobbed it back towards the unguarded net and was unfortunate to see it land too high. City remained rampant in the second half and a precise through pass from Paul Dickov was dispatched by Shaun Goater. Cooke's second successful set-piece conversion sent the ball low into the corner of Howie's goal and after Ian Bishop had struck the bar there was just time for substitute Keith Scott to reply for Reading.

Subject: ENGLAND WIN IS MADE IN MANCHESTER Jubilant England boss Kevin Keegan praised every member of his first squad but shining above all the rest was Manchester United's little flame-haired midfielder Paul Scholes, who weighed in with all three goals in the win over Poland. ''Don't you get knighted if you score a hat-trick at Wembley?'' said Keegan, perhaps remembering that Sir Geoff Hurst, the man who scored the most famous hat-trick of all in England's 1966 World Cup victory, was a guest of honour. ''The most disappointing thing for Scholes though is if he scores a hat-trick and gets man-of-the-match he's got to go on the telly and he doesn't like that too much. ''You couldn't give it to anybody else though. A midfield player scoring a hat-trick at Wembley - you'd have to go back a long time to find one of those." Keegan also praised the hard work up front of Andy Cole, while David Beckham and Gary Neville were involved in Scholes' second and third goals respectively. ''There were some heroic performances, some players had to work very, very hard just to stay with the pace of the game and there were some who will play better in an England shirt. But everyone was committed and everyone was fighting for the cause,'' said Keegan.
