Rumour: Fergie is interested in French midfielder Christian Karembeu
(the dreadlocked one during Euro '96), probably as cover for Beckham.

Subject: Barca tickets, more I've got a mate who lives in Barca who told me that tickets will be available at the Nou Camp after the Barcelona-Brazil match. I'm not sure if this means Wednesday night or Thursday morning, or if tickets are available to Barcelona season ticket holders or the general public. If the tickets are going on general sale, then the touts are going to have a field day. Any Spanish Reds out there to help buy tickets? Any Reds on business in Spain who could do the same? We might have to use every resource possible to ensure we get tickets. Cheers, Adrian Hodgson San Jose, California

Subject: Bosnich lowers demands to woo United By Ian Ross Thursday April 29, 1999 The Aston Villa goalkeeper Mark Bosnich is prepared to further reduce his financial demands in the hope of rekindling the interest of Manchester United. Although it had been assumed the Australian international would be joining one of Italy's leading clubs -possibly Roma - when his present contract expires this summer, he is now actively seeking a move to Old Trafford as the successor to Peter Schmeichel who has insisted he will definitely leave at the end of the season. Alex Ferguson has long regarded Bosnich as the natural replacement for Schmeichel, but the United manager all but abandoned hope of signing him last month when the player set out his wage demands. Possibly assuming he was bound for Italy, Bosnich was believed to be looking for a five-year deal worth pounds 12.5m - or pounds 55,000 a week. Bosnich recently turned down the chance to join Liverpool, who offered him a package worth around £30,000 a week. However, if United were to make a similar offer it is now conceivable he would accept and so return to the club where he was an apprentice for six months back in 1989. The new Merseyside golden boy, Everton's Francis Jeffers, will have to wait until next season to receive a wage packet in keeping with his new status. The 18-year-old striker, drafted into the England Under-21 squad for Tuesday night's friendly against Hungary in Budapest, currently collects £1,200 a week at Goodison Park. Although Jeffers is now a regular in Everton's first team he is the club's lowest-paid senior professional. However, under his contract his wages will increase seven-fold to more than £8,000 a week once he has figured in 20 senior fixtures. He has so far played 15. The newly promoted Cheltenham Town will become the only side in the Football League to field part-timers when the Conference champions join the Third Division next season. Bradford City's request to switch their home game with Oxford United from Saturday to Sunday has been rejected by the Football League. Bradford wanted the match played simultaneously with their promotion rivals Ipswich Town's game at Birmingham City. The fate of Saturday's Irish Cup final between Cliftonville and Portadown will be decided today. The showpiece game at Windsor Park is in jeopardy because Cliftonville have been accused of fielding an ineligible player in the semi-finals.

Subject: UNITED FANS PUT BOOT IN ON EDWARDS The Independent Manchester United Supporters' Association have blasted chief executive Martin Edwards for claiming manager Alex Ferguson's mega-spending days could be over. After the Monopolies and Mergers Commission blocked BSkyB's £623million takeover of United two weeks ago, Edwards announced that Ferguson's transfer kitty for the summer could be limited to Peter Schmeichel's goalkeeping replacement as the club are committed to £44million ground improvements. But IMUSA chairman Andy Walsh insist that Edwards' comments showed a lack of respect to the man who has built the team - Ferguson. "Martin Edwards' temper tantrum in the last few weeks over the failure of the BSkyB deal is contemptuous of Ferguson's achievements over the last 10 years," Walsh said. "Edwards should sit down with the manager and discuss these matters before he goes and shoots his mouth off in the press. "I would be very surprised if other members of the board do not challenge Edwards on his pronouncements because it is a board decision. "The club is not Martin Edwards' club. It is loved and its soul is owned by thousands of people around the world. "The board of directors are charged by the shareholders to decide what resources should be made available to the manager and such an announcement, when we are on the verge of such major games, does nothing for the stability of the club."

Subject: Schmeichel stars in Denmark 1-1 draw v S.Africa COPENHAGEN, April 28 - A string of impressive saves by goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel helped Denmark secure a 1-1 draw with South Africa in a friendly international on Wednesday. Earning his 110th cap, the Manchester United player held off the South Africans as they stepped up the pace in the second half and the hosts` game fell apart. Brondby striker Ebbe Sand had put Denmark ahead with a free header from a cross by Hamburg SV`s Thomas Gravesen in the 40th minute to crown a strong first half during which the Danes outplayed their opponents. South Africa`s only real chance before halftime, a close-range header by Bari`s Philemon Masinga, was parried by Schmeichel. Denmark hit problems when Udinese's attacking midfielder Martin Joergensen was replaced by Seville striker Miklos Molnar in the 60th minute. Led by Kaizer Chiefs duo Pollen Ndlanya and Doctor Khumalo, South Africa put together a series of neat passing moves which tore the Danish defence wide open. Having come in as a substitute in the 58th minute, Fenerbache`s John Moshoeu powered home the equaliser 14 minutes later with a low shot from 17 metres. McDonald Mukansi, an 81st minute substitute, slipped through the Danish defence in injury time but Schmeichel rushed out to preserve the draw with a brave save with his legs.

Subject: Beckham is second richest in world By Russell Thomas Wednesday April 28, 1999 David Beckham has emerged as the second highest paid footballer in the world, trailing only Ronaldo in the game's currently fabulous pay stakes. The Manchester United and England midfielder, having an outstanding season, will earn just over £3m over this campaign for his efforts - both on and off the field. According to France Football magazine, Beckham is paid a salary of about £1.5m by United before bonuses, and the pocket of the player who will be 24 on Sunday is swollen further by £1.2m commercial earnings with endorsements of Brylcreem and Adidas among other products. His salary is six times the average for a Premiership player last season. But even Beckham's riches pale against Ronaldo's. The Internazionale and Brazil striker will earn about £5.7m this season. This includes a basic weekly wage of £50,000-plus and more than £3m a year in advertising activities. Beckham edges the current world footballer of the year Zinedine Zidane into third place, the Juventus and France playmaker earning just under £3m. Fourth is Christian Vieri, the Italy striker, with £2.8m. David Ginola, just crowned the Professional Footballers' Association player of the year, is the sixth best paid French footballer. The Tottenham winger earns £1.34m. Ronaldo has hinted he may take his expensive talents elsewhere if fan discontent at Inter turns even worse. Inter lost 3-1 to Udinese on Sunday and the Brazilian's car was hit by a bottle thrown by a fan as he drove away from the San Siro. 'I can accept the whistles; they may have even been justified on that occasion since I and the whole team played horribly against Udinese," he said. 'But what really hurt was the attempted assault as I was leaving the stadium. In this climate of tension and fear, somebody could decide to leave Inter." Inter yesterday welcomed back Roy Hodgson as caretaker coach until the end of the season, when Marcello Lippi will take over. Hodgson, out of a club job since he was sacked by Blackburn in November, left the San Siro two years ago and now has the job of lifting ninth-placed Inter into a Uefa Cup berth. Middlesbrough's manager Bryan Robson yesterday played down a newspaper report that Paul Gascoigne had been seen drinking alcohol again. Gascoigne entered the Priory Clinic in south London earlier this season to combat his apparent addiction. But a report that the midfielder had been seen drinking - though not drunk -prompted Robson to say: 'With Gazza it is always the same, everything is blown out of proportion. I spoke to Gazza yesterday and he has not been drunk. He is still under counselling with the doctors and the people down at the Priory. They are all happy with the way he is going.'

Subject: Alex Ferguson has revealed he has a shortlist of two to replace Peter Alex Ferguson has revealed he has a shortlist of two to replace Peter Schmeichel - but claimed he has not approached Ajax's Edwin Van der Sar. The Manchester United manager, who is scouring Europe for a new goalkeeper, dismissed Van der Sar's claims that transfer talks had begun as "nonsense". Ferguson admitted he has whittled his list of contenders down to two, although he would not say who they are. Mark Bosnich, who is set to leave Aston Villa on a free transfer under the Bosman ruling this summer, could be one of them and he is once again being strongly linked with a return to Old Trafford. Ferguson said: "I've not made my mind up about a goalkeeper, although there are two we're thinking about. "When the time comes to announce a goalkeeping replacement, we will announce it." Earlier United director and solicitor Maurice Watkins had also poured cold water on Van der Sar's claims that they had approached him. He said: "I'm not aware of anything of that nature." Van der Sar has made no secret of his desire to leave Ajax and join United. He has made his feelings known to United defender and Dutch team-mate Jaap Stam, who has championed his cause with Ferguson.

          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
