Bill's Daily Comment:
It was Andy Cole's day today!
4 GOALS!  Now who said Andy can't finish?
Not that Andy had anything to prove to anyone,
but he sure did silence his critics today.
Well done Andy!

Subject: MANCHESTER UNITED 5-1 NEWCASTLE RED HOT ANDY COLE! Andy Cole struck four times against his old club Newcastle as Manchester United crushed the managerless Magpies 5-1 at Old Trafford. Cole piled on the misery for Alan Shearer and the Toon Army with a superb display of finishing. Newcastle, who lost manager Ruud Gullit on Saturday, lost central defender Nicos Dabizas on Monday. He was red-carded early in the second half for disputing Cole's second goal. United knew that victory would again take them three points clear at the top of the Premiership. And they went ahead on 14 minutes as Cole moved onto a Paul Scholes pass to shoot past Tommy Wright. Newcastle recovered from that blow to fashion a bizarre equaliser on 31 minutes. Henning Berg turned the ball into his own goal as he tried to clear a Kieron Dyer cross. United were back in front a minute into the second half as Cole beat Dabizas to a long ball and took the ball round Wright to score. The Greek defender felt he'd been nudged off the ball by Cole and complained, but all he received after arguing his case was the red card. The result was no longer in doubt on 65 minutes when Cole profited from another long pass to hammer a shot past Wright. And six minutes later it was 4-1 as the same player turned on a Gary Neville pass and crashed another low drive into the corner of the net. Ryan Giggs completed the misery for Newcastle 10 minutes from time with a volley past the despairing Wright. The result leaves Newcastle still second from bottom in the table, with only one point from six games. After the game Cole refused to criticise Kevin Keegan for not including him in the England squad to face Luxembourg and Poland. "Kevin has picked the England squad. He's picked the centre-forwards that he's picked and it's not for me to get uptight about it. "It's not for me to get upset about it. The most important thing for me is to stay in the Manchester United team." Newcastle caretaker boss Steve Clarke was unhappy about the Dabizas sending-off, but kept his comments on the safe side just 48 hours after being handed temporary charge. "It's difficult for me to comment," he said. "I've only been caretaker manager for one game and I don't want to get done by the FA. "I think the sending-off came as a result of a dubious decision. "It looked like a push in the back to me that led to the second goal and from that, the sending-off occurred, and from there, it was always going to be a difficult afternoon for us. "In the first-half, the lads were very, very focused," he said. "I'd like to publicly thank them for their support and efforts over the last few days. "They showed for 45 minutes that, if you give them a level playing field, they can compete with the best."

Subject: FOUR-GOAL COLE STAKES ENGLAND CLAIMS Andy Cole shook off the disappointment of missing out on England selection to shatter managerless Newcastle United with a four-goal blast. The Manchester United striker scored after 14, 46, 65 and 71 minutes to take his tally against his former club to eight in nine games and condemn them to a 5-1 defeat. His task was made easier when Greek defender Nikos Dabizas was dismissed for protesting furiously after appearing to be fouled by Cole as he collected his second, but the quality of his finishing was as breathtaking as ever. Cole refused to criticise England coach Kevin Keegan for leaving him out of his England squad for the Euro 2000 qualifiers against Luxembourg and Poland. "Kevin has picked the England squad. He's picked the centre-forwards that he's picked and it's not for me to get uptight about it. "It's not for me to get upset about it. The most important thing for me is to stay in the Manchester United team." Asked if he thought he might get a belated call-up from England due to injuries, Cole replied: "You're always going to relish the chance to play for England but I think there are other people in front of me. I'll just wait and see." United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also refused to criticise Keegan and then praised Cole for his response. He said: "I think it's a very difficult job for Kevin Keegan with the strikers he's got. He's got four fantastic strikers and it's no discredit to Andy. "Andy understands that and the great thing about him is that he's shown it's not affected him by scoring four goals. His third and fourth goals were outstanding and his finishing was tremendous."

Subject: United target double swoop Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to make a double transfer swoop with Venezia goalkeeper Massimo Taibi, and a top central defender set to join the club. The interest in Taibi has been confirmed, whilst United are said to have expressed a strong interest in a top central defender also playing with a foreign club. The deals have to go through in the next 24 hours to ensure Champions' League eligibility and it is obvious the United boss is concerned about the early season injury crisis which has hit his squad, exposing weaknesses with a lack of cover in goal and central defence. New 'keeper Mark Bosnich is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury, picked up during the 2-0 win over Leeds a fortnight ago, and unlikely to play again for another two weeks. Raimond van der Gouw took over from Bosnich part way through the Leeds game and replaced him for the trip to Arsenal a week later, but it was during this win that the chink showed in United's armour. After Van der Gouw was hurt in the last minute of the game at Highbury, Sir Alex realised his only cover was the untried 21 year old Nick Culkin, and there was a race against the clock to get the Dutchman fit for the game at Coventry. Taibi is valued at around 4 million by Venezia, United have bid 500,000 less than the asking price and are confident everything will be sorted out tomorrow, which is deadline day for the first phase of the Champions' League. United have denied German veteran Jurgen Kohler is the centre-half they are chasing and say as yet the player they are ready to sign has not been mentioned in any speculative stories. Sir Alex plans to unveil his man once the deal has been completed.

Subject: Beckham set for top accolade David Beckham is ready to follow in the famous footsteps of Sir Bobby Charlton, by winning the European Footballer of the Year award. The Manchester United and England midfielder is set to be crowned European Footballer of the Year, bridging a gap of over 30 years since the coveted award was last presented to a player from Old Trafford. Beckham was given official European recognition last week when UEFA presented him with two Champions' League honours, as the continent's Most Valuable Player and Best Midfielder in the competition last season. The Footballer of the Year prize comes from French magazine L'Equipe and is due to be announced soon. According to informed sources Beckham is well ahead of the field and firm favourite to take the award. It will make him the fourth United player to win the prize. Denis Law started things in 1964, Sir Bobby followed two years later, and George Best took the prize in 1968.
