Tampa Bay Bucaneers football team playing at stadium STORYLINE After a two-year quest, American tycoon Malcolm Glazer has gained control of Manchester United - the world's richest soccer team. Despite bitter resistance from fans opposed to the American's takeover, the owner of NFL's (US National Football League) Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the club's majority shareholder on Thursday. His ownership reached 56.9 percent after buying a 28.7 percent share held by Irish racehorse owners JP McManus and John Magnier. Glazer offered 300 pence (US$5.58) per share as part of his 790.3-million-pound (US$1.47 billion) bid for the English club. Financial analysts said the deal seemed certain to succeed, and suggested Glazer's ownership could quickly reach the critical 75-percent threshold. At that level, he could take the club private. Manchester United fans protested Glazer's move in Manchester on Thursday.

Bus driving off STORYLINE: Manchester United fans were expected to protest Sunday against the takeover of their football club by an American tycoon during the club's final Premiership match of the season against Southampton. Malcolm Glazer finished the week with 74 point 81 percent of United shares under his ownership and is expected to pass the crucial 75 percent threshold on Monday, allowing him to take the world's richest football club off the stock market and back into private ownership. Supporters opposed to the takeover have also threatened to boycott the club's merchandise. Many supporters have protested outside the "Old Trafford" stadium in Manchester against the American's bid to take control of the team known as the "Red Devils". But they now plan to cut down the profits Glazer might get from the club's official merchandise, fearing that the tycoon would use the money from the company to repay debts. Rival merchandise opposing the takeover will go on sale this week, it emerged on Saturday. Red and white wristbands produced by supporters' group "Shareholders United" and bearing the slogan "Not For Sale" will hit the streets in the next few days. The spokesman for "Shareholders United" Sean Bones said they've produced 100 thousand wristband and that the demand is "incredible." Some disappointed fans said they were not planning to see any Manchester United football matches if Glazer succeeded to take control of the club. Some fans are also threatening to disrupt next week's Football Association Cup final against Arsenal at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

They're attacking the anti-racists, the dogs were turned on the anti-racists, never on the fascists, all I've seen them do is try to assist their passage into Manchester.

Various, line of police holding back anti-fascist protesters 9. Police and bystanders on street ++MUTE AS INCOMING++ STORYLINE Police stood between hundreds of protesters rallying against "radical Islam" and a group of counter-demonstrators in the English city of Manchester on Saturday, arresting 30 people in a bid to keep the peace. Police locked down a section of the city centre as about two-thousand people gathered. Most of those arrested were accused of public order offences. A group called the English Defence League organised Saturday's protest. A League member admitted that most of the group were "ex-football hooligans and what have you" but insisted that all they wanted to do was to "get a point over that most people want to say, but they can't say because they've got no freedom of speech to say". Their call for supporters to take to the streets sparked a counter-protest by members of an opposing group, called Unite Against Fascism. A member of anti-fascist group "Searchlight" later criticised the police handling of the situation which ensued. Julie Keller claimed police had attacked anti-racist protesters and set dogs on them, while assisting League demonstrators on their passage into Manchester. Manchester, 200 miles (320 kilometres) northwest of London, is the latest English city to be hit with tensions. Troubles also occurred in Luton, Birmingham and London in the last few months involving a loose collection of far-right groups, including the little known English Defence League. The League rejects the fascist label, arguing that it only opposes militant Islam.

Despite a controversy about allowing the American boxer into Britain because he served three years in prison on a rape conviction, Tyson has gotten superstar treatment from the general public and the media since his arrival. On Wednesday night, hundreds of fans lined the streets as the boxer visited the English city of Manchester. After all the hype came the dramatic entrance. Mike Tyson's road show rolled into Manchester amid chaotic scenes. An excited crowd of at least 500 waited outside the front entrance of the city's Midland Hotel, hoping to catch a glimpse of their hero. Tyson was hustled through a back door by his bodyguards, but later waved to the crowd from a hotel window. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I just managed to shake his hand and that was it, it happened, within seconds the bouncers were around us so we couldn't get anywhere else near him." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop, Tyson fan SOUNDBITE: (English) "I'd like to touch him actually but I can't even see him." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop, Tyson fan It doesn't seem likely that Tyson's opponent, British champion Julius Francis, can draw the attention away from the American - even when pulling a media stunt of his own. Tyson has gotten superstar treatment from the general public and the media since his arrival on January 15. That's despite a controversy about allowing him into Britain because he served three years in prison on a rape conviction and protests by women's organisations. The American stands to make up to 11 (M) million U-S dollars for Saturday's scheduled 10-round bout in the soldout 20-thousand seat MEN Stadium in Manchester. Francis' purse is 560-thousand dollar.

Thousands of protesters rallied outside a US military base in Italy, chanting "No to the war" and waving rainbow-coloured peace flags to urge America not to attack Iraq. Demonstrators tied anti-war messages to the fence of Camp Darby, an American military base near Pisa, in Tuscany, while Italian police kept close watch on the crowd. The protesters started out from the nearby small town of San Piero a Grado, and walked the four kilometres to the base. Protest organisers said about 50,000 people had turned out, although police put the figure closer to 20,000. The government of conservative Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been a strong supporter of the Bush administration's position on Iraq. Meanwhile in the UK there were more anti-war demonstrations around the country. In the Midlands there were marches in the cities of Manchester and Malvern, while in southern England marchers took to the streets of London and Colchester to the east. About 10,000 people demonstrated in the northern English city of Manchester. Police estimated that 7,000 people marched to the central Albert Square from three separate starting points and joined 3,000 others to hear anti-war speeches. Outside Colchester army barracks a group of about thirty protesters staged a vigil, while hundreds of others demonstrated. Twenty four protesters were arrested after they refused police requests to move from the barracks. An estimated 250 people took part in the march, and police said the demonstration was peaceful In Malvern, Labour party delegates faced jeers from protesters as they entered the party's Midlands conference. In the heart of London more marches took place as a small group of Muslim mothers handed in a petition to British Prime Minister Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street. And in Asia, tens of thousands of citizens took to the streets in Tokyo in Japan on Saturday to attend a peace rally organised by more than hundred different groups including NGOs such as Greenpeace. According to the organisers, more than 40,000 people took part, an enormous figure by Japanese standards. The mood of the march was peaceful.

Close of kids BECKHAM MEETS YOUNG FANS AT SINGAPORE SCHOOL Manchester United's footballing superstar David Beckham was given a rousing reception when he met young fans at a school in Singapore on Thursday (July 26th.) Beckham laced up his boots to show the youngsters his magical footballing touch as the English premiership Champions continued their Asian tour. Their games continue amid accusations and denials between Singapore media and promoters that access to the team had been too strictly controlled during the preseason "friendly" tour. David Beckham, the football idol with the pin-up good looks and million dollar right boot was greeted warmly by enthusiastic fans at the Singapore school. The England captain and midfielder enjoys world-wide fame extending well beyond the football pitch thanks to the combination of his soccer talents and his marriage to Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, AKA Posh Spice. She has recently hit the headlines after the fan website she launched was branded exploitative. Set in "Beckingham Palace" - the couples mansion - the website includes a web-cam chat from her mothers kitchen about her lack of privacy when out with the family. The site also has sections divulging secrets about Beckham and their son Brooklyn. But it was no secret why Beckham's fame has reached Singapore - his skills were obvious when he put on his boots and joined in a game of football, much to the delight of the boys keen to show their hero their own soccer talents. Manchester United Inc. hit Singapore in a big way this week and has left behind it a trail of bad publicity. In a bitter protest at being denied access to the players, a Singapore daily newspaper, Today, left a blank page where it had planned to put pictures and a story about Manchester United. Beckham's trip to the school, aptly titled "An Afternoon with Beckham" was the first time many of the media had been given access to a Man Utd player. In what seemed a controlled press event Beckham answered a few scripted questions. Although his popularity, and the resultant media hounding, is now legendary the player doesn't believe the fame and fortune interfere with his football. Beckham may have amassed his fame and fortune with Man Utd, but the star footballer is still indecisive about his future with the club. His current contract expires after two more seasons and many European clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona are hoping to poach him from Manchester. But Beckham's affection for his favourite club is apparent. "I've said before, I've got two seasons left with my contract and contract talks are now. If they go well, then great. But I've got two seasons with Man United and as far as I'm concerned I'm a Man United player. I've always wanted to play for Man United. And that says it all". The Manchester United star was still emotional when asked about manager Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement after the end of the upcoming season. "You know, I've got used to him, " Beckham says. "He's been a father figure to me since I have been at the club. To see him leave at the end of the season is upsetting not just for me but for the fans and other players". With wages hitting the roof and massive endorsements chasing the popular footballers, Beckham is only happy to be part of the good times. While Beckham ended his Singapore visit by acknowledging the young fans, the Manchester United entourage moves to Thailand on Friday for another exhibition match on Sunday.
