    BBC reporter John Sweeney on Manchester United saving him
    extract from his exclusive interview in RN170, which you can order at http://www.rednews.co.uk/subscription.php or http://www.rednews.co.uk/current-issue.php

    "Iím an old war reporter and I owe a debt of honour to football. I canít remember how many times Iíve been up to my neck in shit in some awful place with a lunatic threatening to put TNT up my nose and an AK up my bum and Iíve said: ĎManchester Unitedí and everybody starts talking about Eric Cantona versus Wayne Rooney and then the beers are opened. Iíve been all round the world and seen people do terrible things to each other, but football is a beautiful thing and it converts the passions of war and tribalism into a game and at the end somebody loses but, fingers crossed, nobody dies. So this book is, in part, a thank you to football for its part in helping along world peace. Oh, bugger, Iím sounding like Miss World now."

    One Red loves Eric but doesn't want him in those SKY ads

    extracts from a passionate piece in the latest RN 170 - you can read the full article (in context) by ordering at http://www.rednews.co.uk/subscription.php or http://www.rednews.co.uk/current-issue.php

    Not so long ago Eric was so aloof you didn't even know if he was fat or thin at the time such was his anonymous understatedness. Ok, a little bit of Eric can go a long way, he reappears, plugs something and we purr and remember, and even buy it because Eric says too. But like many I was a bit taken aback about him not only aligning himself with the biggest pimps of all football commercialism, in SKY, the very leeches who led to his many moans about modern football, but also bloody doing a walk through scene of that lot winning in Istanbul as if it were one of the most remarkable feats in modern sport, when in fact it wasn't even a win, just a flukey draw, then the lottery of penalties, which would never be mentioned to this day if Shevchenko hadnít fucked up his header in extra time or taken a crap penalty against Jerzy fucking Dudek of all people.

    David May's favourite off field story whilst at United

    this from his hilarious exclusive interview with RN170, which you can order at http://www.rednews.co.uk/subscription.php or
    http://www.rednews.co.uk/current-issue.php

    RN: What were your favourite off pitch moments while at Utd?

    DM: Fucking hell! I remember, Iíd just joined Utd, this is a true story, funny as fuck, I went to my local pub to show off, Utd had just bought me a brand new Merc, an E220, Rolls gold, beautiful, so Iím outside the pub where I always drank, having the craic, and then the landlord said to me, ĎDave, will you just move your car so I can get my car onto the drive, so I can un- loadí. ĎNot a Problem, Pete, no problemí. I left the door open, and looked over my left hand shoulder, and reversed, and ripped the fucking door off me Merc. I hit a fucking lamppost. It only had 34 miles on the clock, and I ripped the door off a fucking £35,000 Merc!

    A view on the World Cup...

    As for the World Cup itself. From Ian Wright voiceovers for Coke ads and those annoying Roger Milla goal celebrations from 1990, as if nobody fucking celebrated a goal before then, the whole month just wasn't enjoyable. You may as well have put Sooty and Sweep on the England bench alongside Becks, what was the relevance of that? Would Fergie put Norman Whiteside on ours, now? Loved, but their time has been and gone and they will only be a distraction to the players' playing, rather than Becks urging the team on as he side eyes his hair style in the dugout reflection.

    The awful nature of commercialism, as official partners fought with each other for news-paper and tv ad space, all desperate to proclaim their official allegiance to the tournament as if that actually affected their sales. ĎOh, Bud sponsor that, I'll buy thatí is not what you hear in the pub or supermarket aisles, and it's peculiar that FIFA have whored out so many affiliations now, it's hard to wonder if anyone bar Red News isn't an official partner of something or other. Presumably there is an official FIFA World Cup 2010 condom and dildo out there somewhere, we've just never heard about it. FIFA would go through them in bundles if there were.
