SOCCER: McCarthy to discuss future with FAI

I`ll have a chat with all of them. Let`s see how they feel. “The Irish lost their opening Euro 2004 fixtures against Russia and Switzerland and McCarthy claims he will do what is best for the team. “I`ve been involved with Ireland since 1984 as a player, coach and manager and I`ve given absolutely everything. “But there also comes a time when you recognise that enough is enough. At the end of it, I`ll do what is good for the team and Irish football. “If it was for the best for me not to be there, I would have to consider it… “But there also comes a time when you recognise that enough is enough.

“It’s not a decision I’ve taken lightly, I’ve given it a lot of thought.

FAW secretary David Collins said: “Having spoken to Fifa with regard to this situation, they have assured us that under their regulations the four-day rule means that Sunday is inclusive.

No fall in autumn
Sofia Echo – Oct 24, 2002
The 2-0 victory over the Belgians was the appetiser, which instigated Bulgaria?s hunger for victory. It was worth it to see how fervently Bulgarian nationals attacked Croatia on October 12 at the revamped national stadium Vassil Levski in Sofia. Then it was clear that the Bulgarian win in Brussels was not accidental and that a new Bulgarian generation capable of returning the glory of the times of Hristo Stoichkov, Emil Kostadinov and Dancho Lechkov has been growing. By the way, this new team has been headed and inspired by an old fighter, whose name dates back from that same glorious few. The miracle that the 36-year Krassimir Balukov provided was no less important than the rise of Dimitar Berbatov, Stilian Petrov, Martin Petrov, Georgi Peev. The five were the main characters of the autumn Euro-campaign. A wonderful help offered the naturalised Serbians Zoran Jankovic and Predrag Pajin who joined the team after a long trip from China.

ANTIRACISM activists and legislators have renewed calls for racism in Slovakia to be dealt with as a priority on a national level. The comments came after an international scandal erupted over the behaviour of some Slovak football fans at a match in Bratislava. During the Euro 2004 qualifier on October 12, some Slovak fans chanted racist abuse at black players in the visiting England national team. In response, the English press branded Slovakia a nation of racists. Slovakia has repeatedly been told by such institutions as the European Commission (EC) that it should deal more strongly with racist elements in society. Local antiracism activists have stressed that if top authorities do not take the problem very seriously, racism may cause big problems for the nation. “Racism is an everyday issue in Slovakia, and the kind of racism that was seen at the [recent] football match has been here for years,” said Ladislav ?urkovi?, head of the People against Racism (LPR) non-governmental organisation… In response, the English press branded Slovakia a nation of racists.

He said he expected a war against racism to be waged by the new cabinet. Following the England-Slovakia football match, the Slovak Football Association (SFZ) defended its fans, stating that racism was only a problem among a small group of local hooligans, rather than among all Slovak football fans. The SFZ said it had already taken steps to eliminate racism from football grounds, but added that everyone in society should get involved in an antiracism campaign.

What these guys allege is much more sinister: that the federal government is in charge of media outlets across the board.

One conspiracy site speculates that the government exercises its control not just through content but through the information released through government spokesmen, through subsidies, press passes and embedded reporters in wartime. In other words, everything that discount football jerseys government officials touch with regards to the media is just another way for them to control it.
