Blatter’s promise boosts South Africa
BBC News – Jan 11, 2002
South Africa missed out on the 2006 World Cup by just a single vote. But Danny Jordaan says they aren’t taking it for granted this will make them favourites for 2010. “I think it will be difficult” he said. “There are many new issues to be addressed, particularly after the terrorist attacks in America.

CNNSI.com – Soccer – Kirch: Huge TV deals unlikely to be repeated -…
SI.com – Jan 10, 2002
Dorfman said that since 1991 there had been a 35-fold increase in the cost of television deals fuelled by competition from around 2,000 TV channels in Europe eager to have the rights to show live soccer. “All those competing channels were instrumental in the growth of the deals which just doubled and tripled each time they were renegotiated leading to a dramatic change in the landscape for both football and television. “But the viewing figures now suggest that fans are tiring of club football, although the World Cup and European Championship still attract huge audiences. Rights deals Kirch Media bought the rights from FIFA for the 2002 and 2006 World Cup finals for 2. 8 billion Swiss francs ($1. 70 billion) five years ago. That was a massive increase on the previous $340 million deal which was negotiated in 1987 for the World Cups of 1990, 1994 and 1998… “All those competing channels were instrumental in the growth of the deals which just doubled and tripled each time they were renegotiated leading to a dramatic change in the landscape for both football and television. “But the viewing figures now suggest that fans are tiring of club football, although the World Cup and European Championship still attract huge audiences.

Scoglio linked with Libya post
BBC News – Jan 10, 2002
The news was announced by Libyan FA chief al-Saadi Gaddafi, who is keen for the country to make the 2006 World Cup in Germany. “We really want to qualify for the World Cup in 2006 and on
Friday we will be in Milan to sign a four-year contract with
Francesco Scoglio to coach our national team,” Gaddafi said. Scoglio left Tunisia in contoverisal circumstances when he was tempted back to Italian club Genoa in the middle of the Carthage Eagles’ 2002 World Cup qualifying campaign. But he subsequently quit Genoa and has been out of work since. Gaddafi has been developing links with Italian football for some time and recently acquired a 5. 3% stake in Juventus… Scoglio left Tunisia in contoverisal circumstances when he was tempted back to Italian club Genoa in the middle of the Carthage Eagles’ 2002 World Cup qualifying campaign.

moment to return as brothers. ”

“I still love your football and I will go to Japan and Korea hoping to see Italy win.

Hey sports fans: Paperless tickets via wireless
CNN – Jan 11, 2002
The partners made their first public demonstration of the ticketing system Wednesday at the Football Expo 2002 in Cannes, says Reiter. An Austrian nightclub event organizer has also inquired about implementing the system at an upcoming event for some 6,000 young people, he adds. “At the initial stage, we’re trying to get all the big football stadiums that might want to implement this mobile ticketing solution,” he says, adding that the developers are hoping to target the World Cup 2006 soccer tournament in Germany. “The first response that I’ve heard from Cannes is very, very positive. ”

A ticketing system consisting of hardware and software will be priced at around 7,000 euros (US$6,250) per entry unit, Reiter says. Initially the companies are focusing on European markets, but potentially could expand to other areas with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) wireless service, such as North America and Asia… The partners made their first public demonstration of the ticketing system Wednesday at the Football Expo 2002 in Cannes, says Reiter.

On the Spot: Peter Taylor
Telegraph.co.uk – Jan 11, 2002
I understand that up to a point but his timing was not the best. He should have left it a year because it was going so well. People think I am telling porkies but I had a week with Howard in Malaysia at the Under-20 World Cup, we had a few glasses and a few cigars and I found him very interesting on football. He is a very intelligent man. “Sunderland are opening the stadium on Dec 18 and I have told the chairman I am going to get Howard a nice bottle of red wine because I know he is fussy on his red wine and a nice cigar because he is fussy on those as well. Why should I be bitter? I left the Under-21s, had a fantastic season with Gillingham, whom I loved, and finished up managing a team at Wembley – a dream. Then I go to Leicester and suddenly I am managing England… We needed more attacking set-patterns at training. There was tiredness and humidity but we just didn’t have enough flair or ideas to get around 10 men. But I fancy us for Portugal [Euro 2004] or Germany [the 2006 World Cup]. I have spoken to Sven and Tord [Grip] since. “Sven has taken some stick. People say he is quiet on the bench. He is but he says enough.

BBC News – Jan 10, 2002
Gaddafi, who is the son of the country’s leader, is a Juve fan and recently acquired his share through his company Libyan Arab Foreign
Investment Company (Lafico). “The current stake that we own is just a starting point as
over the next few years we are seeking to hold 20 percent of the
shares,” he said. And he confirmed that he had made the link with Juve as part of a plan to develop Libya’s football talent. “This cannot be considered a financial deal.

WW II bomb in Berlin stadium
BBC News – Jan 9, 2002
The rusting bomb, which had a defective trigger, was detected under seats on Monday by construction workers restoring the stadium for the 2006 World Cup. A 300-metre radius around the stadium was evacuated for the defusing, and the device taken away and destroyed. Police said the bomb would have had a devastating effect if it had gone off while the 76,000-seat stadium, Germany’s largest arena, was crowded. “If you can imagine that peak crowds of nearly 100,000
people have been in the stadium at times, it would have been a
disaster with many people killed and many with serious injuries
if the bomb had gone off,” said police spokesman Friedrich
Christian Wehmann. Nazi past
The stadium was built by Nazi architect Albert Speer for the 1936 Olympics and is now home to the football team Hertha Berlin.

The Giants seem to be entering their typical end of season slide. The Cowboys are always a risk to implode. And being at home doesn’t seem to help them. I think Cowboys, but I could see this going either way. And if the Cowboys do win this, I think the Giants will win in week 17, by the way.
