McCarthy talks reach stalemate
Irish Independent – Jan 24, 2002
It’s also shy of the stg£375,000 which the Scottish FA are prepared to pay Bertie Vogts to become Craig Brown’s successor. Gaskin declined to make any comment last night but it is believed his asking price for McCarthy’s new contract is closer to stg£500,000 a year, which is too high for the FAI. McCarthy’s current contract expires next month and he has expressed his desire to continue until the 2006 World Cup campaign is over. But unless the FAI agree terms next week, McCarthy could be forced reluctantly to sign a six-month contract which would take him up to the World Cup finals. DUBLIN businessman John Courtney is within three weeks of acquiring a 93 per cent shareholding in English Third Division side Carlisle United, writes Gerry McDermott. The head of the Umbro franchise in Ireland announced yesterday that he has agreed a deal in principle for the sale of the club with owner Michael Knighton. All that remains is for the lawyers to complete the necessary legal work and Courtney reckons that will take around three weeks… Speaking to the Irish Independent last night, Courtney said he was delighted with the prospect of becoming the first Irishman to own an English League club. “It really excites me. It’s good fun and I am a football man. Anybody who knows me knows that I have always been involved in football. “There is great potential there and the team have been playing some wonderful football in the last few weeks. Most of the squad is under 22 but Roddy Collins and John Cunningham are doing a great job with them. ” Courtney has already promised Collins a five-year contract if he takes over the club and ten points from their last four games have moved the club up to 19th place in Division Three.

One goal for Marvin after shock defeat
Edinburgh Evening News – Jan 30, 2002
Andrews has emerged as one of the stars of the Scottish season, earning the player of the month award for his performances in August and signing a new deal which ties him to the club until 2005. He appreciates the fact the club prize him so highly and he is also grateful for their co-operation in letting him make those transatlantic trips to his homeland. Now, with T & T facing no competitive games until qualifying starts for the 2006 World Cup he has vowed to repay his paymasters by devoting his undivided attention to the West Lothian side’s cause. He said: “I won’t be going back home to play for Trinidad & Tobago for a very long time. Now that we’re out of the Gold Cup we don’t have any more competitive games for at least two years. “I think qualifying for the next World Cup starts in 2004 so that will be the next time I go back to play – I might go for the odd holiday in the meantime, but that’s all. “That means I can concentrate 100 per cent on Livingston and I can begin to repay them for the understanding they have shown me since I signed.

England’s South Africa date
BBC News – Feb 1, 2002
England have only met South Africa once before, in a friendly at Old Trafford
in May 1997. Jamie Redknapp and Paul Gascoigne suffered bad injuries in the
2-1 win, with Ian Wrigth and Rob Lee scoring the goals. The two countries, who competed to host the 2006 World Cup in a race
that was eventually won by Germany, have been looking to make the most of their
improved relations.

Boateng dreams of Liverpool
BBC News – Jan 26, 2002
Boateng, aged just 18 years eight months and therefore the youngest member of
the Ghanaian team, has already
established himself at one of Greece’s top clubs. But he wants to swap the Mediterranean for Merseyside to fulfil his football ambitions. They play as a team and like
we have seen with players like (Michael) Owen, they encourage young
players,” he revealed… We can go very far in this tournament but
everything depends on us. ”

” We have to continue to learn and be
committed. ”

“Ghana is behind this team to raise our football again and that
would also include qualifying for the 2006 World Cup.

Money could hold key to Lewis-Tyson bout
Turkish Daily News – Turkish Daily News (subscription) – Jan 27, 2002

Korean beer makers cheer World Cup

Korea expects the event to draw over 300,000 foreign tourists, including fans from Poland and Denmark — top nations in football — and per capita beer drinking

South Korea’s beer makers expect a thirsty 2002 as one of Asia’s strongest economies last year gears up to host soccer’s World Cup finals and the Asian Games. Hosting the World Cup, the biggest finals in sport, boosted beer sales for 1998 hosts France and in the United States in 1994, a Morgan Stanley Dean Witter study showed. Korea expects the event to draw over 300,000 foreign tourists, including fans from Poland and Denmark — top nations in football — and per capita beer drinking. Korea’s beer market is dominated by two makers, with foreign brands such as Budweiser and Miller starting to make inroads. Savvy marketing by makers of traditional liquors such as soju, the stiffest of the local tonics, and variants flavoured with plum or ginseng, have nibbled at beer’s dominance, but it remains the drink of choice with about 60 percent of Korea’s $4. 51 billion-a-year liquor market taken up by beer… While the number of patrons ordering Heineken or Molson over Seoul’s popular barbecue grills or live octopus stands remains small, it’s a market where equity stakes have offered foreign players a slice of the action. Danish beer giant Carlsberg Breweries boosted a stake it took in Hite in 1999 to 25 percent earlier this week. Belgium’s Interbrew has 50 percent of OB and rights to boost that to 95 percent by early 2006. "As the European beer market growth is limited, they want to grow in Asia," said an analyst with a U. "It was a perfect opportunity to buy dominant beer players under financial pinch.

Ballack in spotlight as Bayer faces Bayern
SI.com – Feb 1, 2002
I am trying everything to bring my three years here to the best possible end — by winning the championship,” Ballack was quoted as saying on German news agency SID. Ballack has played for Leverkusen for the last three years and helped the team to two second place finishes but he has opted to exercise an exit clause in his contract and is going to Bayern for around 50 million euros (US$43 million). He had numerous offers from foreign clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, but signed for Bayern after Rudi Voeller and Bayern Munich manager Karl-Heinz Rummenigge advised him to stay in Germany until after the 2006 World Cup. He began his career at BSG Motor in Karl-Marx-Stadt (now Chemnitz) in the former East Germany and later for Chemnitz FC in the second division. “I’m concentrating on the main thing now and that’s football,” said Ballack, who is expected to earn a salary of around 4. 45 million euros a year at Bayern. Ballack said he will concentrate on the game in hand and not think about what’s going to happen next season… He had numerous offers from foreign clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona, but signed for Bayern after Rudi Voeller and Bayern Munich manager Karl-Heinz Rummenigge advised him to stay in Germany until after the 2006 World Cup.
