We went to Barcelona in a fine day in May
And all our supporters sang loudly & gay
And when it was over and all said and done
We beat Bayern Munich  by 2 goals to 1

The first one was Teddy's he out foxed the rest
The second was Solskjear's he's simply the best
We could have had 4 or we could have had 9
But we didn't start playing till injury time

Subject: Only one pound! by Peter Hargreaves We went to Alfreton Town last night and as it was a first for me (and Manchester United, I believe) I sampled one of their meat and potato pies on your behalf. The pies were served in a large plastic tray and came with a fork and I can tell you that they were of excellent quality. All that and they were only one pound. Very good. The game was auspicious in that young William Jennings (Jayne and Pat's lad) was making his Manchester United debut - at the age of only twenty-two months - incredible. Considering he is such a little fellow he did very well and my only criticism of him is that he thought that the BDS lookalike, Nick Culkin, would play like his counterpart - he didn't. Jayne, Pat, Tim, dad and myself had made the trip on a beautiful, sunny evening and found ourselves a position in the AT Stretford End, sat on a grassy bank. I recognised some of the players but not all and the AT pa system left so much to be desired that I'm afraid that a full team listing is quite beyond me. However, among those that I did recognise were Culkin, Ford, Healy, O'Shea, Wellens, Chadwick and Notman. The pitch was too long of grass and extremely bumpy and it just did not suit our passing game. That said AT were the better team for most of the game and carved out by far the most chances, getting the winning (and only) goal in the 62nd minute. We never really threatened, though Chadwick did have a good run in the first half and then ballooned the ball over the bar when he should have done better. I think we all agreed that O'Shea, the big lad at the back, was our m-o-t-m. As the sun went down it became increasingly difficult to see and we were all wishing that it would sink behind the big tree at the far end. When it did disappear it suddenly turned from being lovely and warm to absolutely bloody freezing. Obviously I had not bothered with me vest and by the end of the game me teeth were close to chattering. Young Nick Oz would have needed an intravenous Bovril drip in order for his vital signs to be restored. It got so cold that, just into the second half, Jayne decided that young William ought to be taken home and thus the lad's debut came to an end. I wonder what the Manchester United future has in store for this lad? Let's all hope for great things for him - our newest supporter. Overall it was a disappointing performance from our boys and they are capable (I KNOW) of far better. O.K. the pitch did not suit them but that is no excuse against such lowly opposition. I hate to say it but Alex Notman showed absolutely nothing last night. They kept him on to the end, substituting the lad we thought was our best forward (Number 8 - don't know his name -sorry) and Healy (who had run well and showed far more than Notman). If Notman is to make the grade (as a lot of 'informed' opinion said he would) then he should be 'showing' against teams like AT - he didn't. Anyway, it was a game and our season is now off and running - and the pies were only a pound! Keep the Faith, Pete Peter Hargreaves (United Kingdom) http://www.cheswem.u-net.com/

Subject: Melbourne game by Sally A short sory of the Melbourne game: I feel a bit guilty for not sending in a report from the Melbourne match, but I guess it's because I was disappointed so much by it. The organisers made sure the atmosphere was crap by splitting all the true supporters up. We were supposed to be sat together but were in fact dispersed in the 'cheap seats' around the ground. The great pre-match atmosphere in the (dreaded) Casino was fab, reds from all over the world and lots of singing. We all went out to see the boys off in the coach. About 300 reds surrounded the bus and sang songs at the bemused team, the security men were very perturbed. We then marched en masse to the MCG, still singing. It was great taking over Melbourne in that way, some cars honked their horns in support others got very upset about us blocking roads. Once we got to the MCG the atmosphere dispersed much more quickly than the smoke from the OTT forework display. You can't smoke ciggies in the ground but it's fine to fill it with firework smoke! The whole event demonstrated that people in this country still need educating in the ways of real football. The over the top build up complete with a lot of Rivkin PR, was followed by a very average match. Largely due to the fact that the pitch was abysmal, lumpy in some places and a cricket pitch in the middle. I think the players first priority was to avoid injury. There were 2 lovely goals, but the rest of it was pretty average. For me the atmosphere or lack of it, was really dissappointing. There may be complaints at the atmosphere at OT these days, but this was way down from there. After the match it was back to the Casino to regroup and sing with all the reds into the wee hours. I was delighted to see the boys in the town I now live and was lucky enough to get a close up at the closed training that I managed to briefly sneak into that morning, but I really look forward to seeing a competitive match again next season at OT. This show pony just didn't cut the mustard I''m afraid. I hope and pray (to Eric) that next time the boys come over the event is organised by someone who understands football. sally

Subject: SIGN ME FOR A FORTUNE South African star Quinton Fortune is ready to sign for Manchester United in a transfer that will almost pay for itself. The powerful midfielder plays a closed-doors trial for United tomorrow in a bid to convince boss Sir Alex Ferguson that he is worth the 1.5million fee and a contract. However, Fortune would not just be a useful squad man but also a large cash cow. Fortune, who played for Atletico Madrid last season, is one of black Africa's emerging young sportsmen. He has a big following in Johannesburg and Cape Town. With United forging links with a feeder club in Cape Town, Fortune would be a useful cog in the United cash machine. PA Sporting Life

Subject: PREMIER LEAGUE WIN TV BATTLE By Mark Bradley, PA Sport The Premier League today won a resounding victory in their battle to retain the right to negotiate TV rights for top-flight games on behalf of their 20 member clubs. Lord Justice Ferris ruled in the Restrictive Practices Court that the status quo should be maintained and that football should not become a free-for-all in terms of the coverage of games. The Premier League's existing contracts with BSkyB and the BBC have therefore been left unchanged and the worries of smaller clubs and supporters groups have been lifted. PA Sporting Life

Subject: SOLSKJAER READY FOR CHARITY SHIELD Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to make a surprise comeback for Manchester United as they face rivals Arsenal in Sunday's Charity Shield. The Norwegian striker, whose 'super sub' goal clinched the European Cup and tied up the Treble for United last season, seems certain to miss the Wembley friendly after being sent home early from the tour to Australia and China for treatment on a knee injury. Sir Alex Ferguson dismissed speculation Solskjaer would need surgery to cure the problem and the United boss has been proved correct as the player returned to training this week. "He has a good chance of playing on Sunday," says Sir Alex. Solskjaer, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and David May have all been included in a United side to play Bristol Rovers in a testimonial for ex-Old Trafford full-back Lee Martin at Bristol on Friday night. Martin has been forced to quit the game because of a back injury.
