After crushing Portsmouth 6-0 in the Barclays Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson have warned all the Rivals "It takes more than money to build a successful team."

He further explained "It's all very well having all the money but you can't buy everyone. It was proved in the summer. We didn't want to sell Ronaldo, other clubs don't want to sell their best players, and there are only so many players you can buy."

He further stated "You can buy 11 individuals - you can buy 11 Robinhos but it wouldn't be a team would it?

"The art of management is building a team with balance, with certain characteristics that blend with each other - that's the most important thing."

Barclays Premier League - West Hamm will Appeal over Tevez affair

West Ham survived at the expense of the Blades, chiefly through the performances of star player Tevez, whose registration breached league rules on third-party ownership.

The panel are yet to determine the size of the payout, although a figure of up to £30 million has been suggested.

A statement on the Hammers' official website confirmed the club's intention to take the case all the way to the CAS in Geneva.

"However, the club can confirm that while we respect the judgement of the FA arbitration panel, we do not accept that one player's contribution can be placed over that of the team as a whole nor used as the basis for judging the results of a 38-game season.

"This ruling undermines the significant efforts of our entire playing squad and coaching staff over the duration of the 2006/07 Premier League season and does not take sufficient account of the performances of the other 19 clubs in the competition.

"We acknowledge again that the club broke Premier League rules in the original signing of Carlos Tevez but we were dealt with accordingly by an independent Premier League commission and accepted the significant punishment handed down at that time.

"In light of this and the wider implications of this latest ruling for English football we have decided to ask that the case be considered by the Court of Arbitration for Sport."

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed anger at the decision to overturn Chelsea captain John Terry's sending off last weekend. Chelsea captain John Terry will play against Manchester United on Sunday after winning his appeal against a red card.

Terry hauled down City striker Jo as he raced towards goal, using his arm to perform a pseudo-rugby tackle.

"At an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, a claim for wrongful dismissal from Chelsea's John Terry was upheld," said an FA statement.

"As a result of today's hearing, Terry's three match suspension has been withdrawn."

Ferguson, quoted in The Times, said: "From what I have heard, Keith Hackett has told the referee to rescind the red card and he wouldn't do it.

"If it had been a Manchester United player, Keith Hackett wouldn't have done this.

"If the referee has made a mistake, this is going to happen all the time."

Premier League - Aston Villa earned a deserved 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane.

Victory Aston Villa move up to fourth in table but it wasn't all good news for Martin O'Neill as key striker John Carew was forced off in the second half with what looked like a hamstring injury.

There was also some injury woe for Spurs with Luka Modric and Didier Zokora both exiting the game with knocks.

Tottenham now have just one point from their opening four matches making it their worst start to a season in 34 years.

Villa scored with their opening attack of the game after just five minutes as Gabriel Agbonlahor was found in acres of space down the left wing by Young.

He then put in a low cross that the Spurs defenders just watched and Carew was able to flick the ball into the path of Reo-Coker who side-footed home for his first goal in a Villa shirt.

Villa continued to dominate as Spurs struggled to get a grip of proceedings in midfield, and acrobatic saves from Gomes were needed to deny Gareth Barry and Agbonlahor.

Spurs huffed and puffed for a way back into the game but despite the best efforts of Bentley and the lively Aaron Lennon they continued to struggle.

Martin O'Neill will be hoping for better from Harewood in forthcoming weeks as he is likely to need the big striker after Carew went down unchallenged just after the hour mark.

Spurs on the other hand, have much bigger problems to worry about, as they remain the only Premier League club without a win this season.

Premier League - Everton Beat Stoke 2 - 3

Everton survived a stirring comeback to win a nail-bitting Premier League encounter 3-2 at the Britannia Stadium.

Toffees boss David Moyes was sent to the stands after his side were denied a penalty, but Tim Cahill secured an away win with a close-range header.

In the first half, Stoke set out to defend, getting men behind the ball and allowing the visitors to dominate possession.

Even with record signing Marouane Fellaini and Ecuadorian Segundo Castillo making their debuts, and Cahill back in the starting 11, chances were at a premium.

Stoke's Ricardo Fuller registered the only shot on target of a stultifying game before Yakubu broke the deadlock five minutes before the break.

It was a peach of a goal. Fellaini played a clever reverse ball to Cahill who teed up Yakubu.

The Nigerian - the most prolific striker of any currently playing in the English top flight - cut back onto his left side and placed a superb left-foot shot into the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box.

Just over five minutes into the second half, it looked to be all over when Anichebe made it two with a deft header. Mikel Arteta delivered a free-kick into the box and Anichebe let the ball brush to the top of his head, redirecting it just enough to guide it inside the far post.

Stoke had played nearly all the first half inside their own territory, but now they were forced to respond, and did so in thrilling fashion. Knowing their limitations, Stoke have made a useful habit of playing to their strengths.

Among these are the extraordinary long throws of Rory Delap, who time and again flung the ball into the Everton area, causing panic.

Delap's missiles led to both Stoke goals. First, on 54 minutes, Tim Howard palmed one long throw weakly to Seyi Olofinjana, who smashed a volley in from eight yards.

Nine minutes later Delap loaded up again and hurled towards the Everton goal. Jagielka jumped to head clear, but could only glance it over Howard and in for an equaliser.

On 73 minutes, Leon Cort handballed inside the Stoke box and referee Alan Wiley pointed to the penalty spot.

Such insensitivity and disrespect were again most recently displayed by you having summoned Dwight Yorke to England, rendering him unavailable to face the USA.

51-year-old Lotina admits there has been contact from someone claiming to be involved with Newcastle.

"I don't give it too much importance. I had a call, I don't know if it was from someone very close to the club (Newcastle) or not because there are so many businessmen that you never know, to see if I would be interested and I told them no because I have a contract and I'm not thinking of any other team. I nipped it in the bud," Lotina said.

he further adds "I'm happy at Depor and my intention is to continue here until June 30," added Lotina, who joined the Galician outfit last summer and led them to a ninth-place finish in La Liga.

Zola as impressed West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury during the interview

club director Mike Lee confirmed Zola and Donadoni were leading candidates.

West Ham's selection process has already ruled out Gerard Houllier and the former Scotland midfielder John Collins, plus former Ajax boss Martin Olsen. Earlier Lee told BBC Radio Five Live: "We have a very strong shortlist and it's going to be a tough decision with some exciting candidates.

"From the meetings that have taken place so far the two that have really shone have been Donadoni and Zola.

"We have been surprised and pleased by the number of applications we have had and we are moving towards a short shortlist and ideally have a manager in place in time for the West Brom match next week.

"Slaven Bilic could potentially be on that shortlist but it depends very much upon his availability. If for whatever reason he was not available until January in terms of working with us I'm afraid that will rule him out."
