Euro 2008 bid suffers blow
BBC News – Oct 1, 2002
The news will be interpreted as a blow to the joint Scottish-Irish bid for the 2008 European Football Championships. Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern has been pleading with the GAA to allow Croke Park to be made available for Euro 2008. He had hoped the GAA would reverse its policy ahead of 11 December, the deadline for submitting final bid presentations to Uefa. It’s possible that the Croke Park issue will be debated at the GAA’s next Annual Congress in April but that could be several months too late for the Scottish-Irish bid.

Both the Irish and Scottish governments are fully committed to providing all the stadia necessary for this world-class tournament. “During your visit you have heard our plans in detail and you can be assured that these new stadia will be modern with all the facilities you have specified and that they will match or exceed your required capacities. “The letter concluded: “We are determined to do all that we can to support the bid by the SFA and FAI for Euro 2008. This is an unrivalled opportunity for our two countries to host the world’s third largest sports event. “The UEFA inspection team customarily make positive noises at the end of each visit to a proposed location – they have also looked at facilities for the solo bid from Russia, the joint Austrian-Swiss bid and the Nordic presentation involving Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden – but Olsson was notably emphatic when asked about the merits of the Celtic bid… The nature of the bidding process is that you put forward plans to try and convince UEFA that you can deliver on these. “Olsson also revealed that a powerful plea by Sir Alex Ferguson had greatly impressed the inspectors. “We had dinner with him last night and he spoke strongly of how much passion there is here for football – and not just for football. He was passionate himself. “On the domestic front, meanwhile, it will be intriguing to see what impact a week of mixed fortunes in the UEFA Cup will have on the Bank of Scotland Premier League. Rangers travelled to Prague buoyed by their rediscovered status of league leaders, only.

Lennon forced out by death threats
Telegraph.co.uk – Sep 28, 2002
Whether it was a hoax or not I really don’t know, but I couldn’t really take that chance. “It turns out that the LVF [Loyalist Volunteer Force, a paramilitary group] have come out and said it was a hoax, but by then I had already made my mind up. “Chelsea chairman Ken Bates has insisted that the new Wembley Stadium will “knock the socks off” the best grounds in the world. Bates resigned from his position as vice-chairman of Wembley National Stadium Ltd in February last year in protest at the Government’s handling of the project. But, speaking on BBC1’s Football Focus, Bates gave his full backing to the £757 million project… I am delighted, it is a fantastic design and when we have it built it will be the best stadium in the world. “When we open in 2006 it will knock the socks off the rest of the world. “Bad news for the organisers of Scotland and the Republic of Ireland’s joint bid to host Euro 2008. Russian prime minister Mikhail Kasyanov has revealed his plans to allocate the necessary £700,000 in order for his country to make a serious bid to hold the competition. It is the first time a Russian government have openly backed plans to stage a major footballing event. The project could cost Russian taxpayers about £640 million, with UEFA’s final decision expected on Dec 12. A Uruguayan referee has died from injuries sustained after being attacked during last weekend’s derby clash between two sides from Las Piedras, some 10 miles from Montevideo.

McCague reiterates Croke Park stance
rte.ie – Sep 30, 2002
Sports other than gaelic games are currently banned from the GAA’s headquarters, but the Euro 2008 bid organisers had been hoping that this rule might be changed to boost their chances of staging the UEFA event. However, changes to GAA rules can only be made by Congress, and, if McCague’s latest comments prove accurate, the next time the issue could be addressed would be at the next Congress in the Spring of 2003. It therefore seems highly unlikely that the GAA will grant the 2008 bid permission to incorporate the Drumcondra ground in their next crucial submission to UEFA in December.

Hibs eye £10M cash boost
Edinburgh Evening News – Oct 1, 2002
The news sparked intensive interest in the Capital’s property market with John Brown director of DTZ Residential in Scotland predicting the sale of such a prime site so close to the city centre could be expected to attract between 12 and 15 bids. A closing date has already passed and Brown revealed that DTZ, who have provided “market intelligence” to some of those interested, believed the land could justify an offer “into double figures in millions. ” However, it is understood that the sale of the land may not be concluded for around nine months and the final price – if it is sold – will depend on various conditions set by the buyer being met. And while the sale won’t suddenly result in team manager Bobby Williamson being handed a windfall to spend in the transfer market, any profit made will be used to make a “significant” reduction in the debt of both Hibs and their parent company. Hibs, as is widely known, have been faced with a mounting debt crisis with the £1. 6 million loss run up in the last financial year expected to have almost doubled when the latest set of accounts are published shortly. Those losses add to those of previous years and, it is believed, it costs Hibs a large amount of money each year simply to meet the interest charged on their debts… ” The news that Williamson who, so far, has been restricted to Bosman signings, won’t be handed a windfall from the eventual sale will come as something of a disappointment to most fans. But those within Easter Road, where three new stands have been built at a cost of some £14m, would argue that having the club on a much stronger financial footing will benefit everyone in the long-term, the manager included, as crippling service payments are radically reduced. And it was made clear the sale of the land will have no impact on the completion of redevelopment work at Easter Road where a new East Stand is planned with the Leith ground still very much part of the joint Scotland-Ireland bid for Euro 2008. A sufficient “footprint” of land to allow that project to go ahead in the future has already been made over to the football club with the remainder of the car park site now on sale. HIBS’ Premier League clash with Aberdeen has been put back 24 hours to Sunday, October 27. Their CIS Cup third-round tie with Rangers will be played on Thursday, October 24 and will be shown live on Channel Five.

Pressley joins chorus of praise for McFadden
Edinburgh Evening News – Sep 18, 2002
” But Pressley played down any thoughts of an international call-up for himself, insisting his displays for the Jambos are more important.
