Keegan exit leaves bleak future
BBC News – Oct 8, 2000
and he should be committed to the long-term too given that Mr Crozier said last week that his target is for England to win the World Cup in Germany in 2006. The Sunday papers rounded up the usual suspects in their cross-border trawl… Headhunters

So the FA’s headhunters will need key words and phrases (“challenge”, “historical distinction”, “squad potential”) to get that signature on the dotted line. I wish it could be Arsene Wenger – tactically and temperamentally he fits the bill better than any of the others – but why should he want the aggro and why should Arsenal let him go?

Aime Jacquet? Great credentials of course but why should a man who won the World Cup and still got hammered by his own newspapers want to take on an England campaign that already has a look of desperation about it?

The French, of course, have been long-term planning. that’s why the transition from Jacquet to Lemerre was seamless and successful.

Trinidad and Tobago Football Team – Oct 8, 2000
How did they qualify – The team just missed out on an instant entry to the world cup and had to gain entry by playing against Bahrain in the play-offs. This is the first time the team have qualified for the FIFA world cup, due to qualifying the country decided to make a public holiday to celebrate the teams victory. Although the team will not be expecting great results from their first world cup in Germany 2006 they are pleased they have made it into the finals. The team also play in the Gold cup which they have yet to passed the semifinals. The team however are said to be the best team in the Caribbean and have won the Caribbean cup 8 times. Many people may not know much about the team so above we have provided a photo of the Trinidad and Tobago national team along with their team badge.

Wilkinson appeals to players’ pride
BBC News – Oct 9, 2000
“Between us the coaching staff I think we have enough there to have some
effect in terms of how the side plays. “But at the end of the day this will mainly be about the players, their
pride, the leaders within the group, taking responsibility and leading from the
inside as well as expecting leadership from the outside. ”

Looking ahead, Wilkinson has stated that he believes it is unrealistic for the Football Association to
look to appoint a successor to Kevin Keegan who will take England through to the
2006 World Cup finals. ”


Wilkinson said: “The next manager will be appointed by the chief executive, but I am the
technical director of the FA and I will be disappointed if I’m not involved in
that process.

Howard’s Way – the wrong way
BBC News – Oct 12, 2000
They have the carrot of a big salary to offer but whoever takes on the post will have a dearth of world-class talent to work with. David Beckham is England’s best player by far but Paul Scholes was shocking against Germany and Finland by his normally high standards, a clear indictment that the Manchester United midfielder needs to know exactly what his England role is. Wes Brown, Gareth Barry and Joe Cole are surely the future and whoever does take on the mantle of England coach should build for the future with the 2004 European Championship and the 2006 World Cup in mind. He will also need to do a quick-fix and steer England to at least a play-off spot for qualification to the 2002 World Cup. If Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson do not want the job then surely Crozier must turn to Venables.

Crozier the kingmaker
BBC News – Oct 9, 2000
He was destined for the top after he became the youngest board director in their history at the age of 26 in 1990, rising to chief executive four years later. As a teenager he had trials with Hibernian and Stirling Albion before making his name in the world of advertising. His first contact with the FA came as part of a team of communications advisors to the England 2006 World Cup bid. And Crozier – a driving force behind football’s new disciplinary crackdown – has already made the revolutionary declaration that the runners and riders to succeed Keegan will not be restricted to Englishmen. It was a clear statement of intent from a man with a reputation for seeing the bigger picture, for refusing to be bound by the old fashioned restraints that have inhabited FA headquarters in years gone by. Crozier comes from the cut-throat world of advertising after heading up Saatchi and Saatchi, and has wasted no time making an impact since arriving at Lancaster Gate last January. One of the charges levelled against him was that he made his mark with a series of hirings and firings in the shallow end of the FA pool – but was slow to spot problems with the bigger fish, namely Keegan himself.

Politician’s View from – Fiona McLeod SNP
Scottish Fitba – Oct 10, 2000
If public money is required, the SNP expects the Treasury to cough up. They’ve done it for England on a number of occasions. There was pounds 2million in lottery money and a government envoy for their 2006 World Cup bid. For Euro 96, the Football Trust spent pounds 19m on stadiums. No one in the SNP is suggesting looting the budgets for health, education or housing but a real public-private partnership could easily create the necessary pot for a successful bid. The Executive came up with over pounds 2m to save Hampden for the nation but there’s not much point saving the stadium if we’ve no football to put in it. The great unknown factor is of course UEFA.
