Eriksson says he considered walking out
Telegraph.co.uk – Nov 11, 2002
Davies will handle external affairs, including football, and he will be Eriksson’s ‘boss’ until Crozier’s successor is named. When asked if he would have left, Eriksson said: “I have never had any real wishes to leave but if they wanted to change too many things in my job, of course. “I want to be a free man, I want to report to one man not two, three, four or five if I have a problem. If I want to play a friendly against this team or that team I need one person to say yes or no. “That person is Davies, who was delighted the doubts surrounding Eriksson have been cleared up, though given the politics of English football certain issues are always likely to rear their head. “We moved as quickly as we could,” said Davies. “I knew the concerns he had… “I understand their problem because of a conflict of interests. But when I asked them what they wanted to do with friendlies they said they would do what I wanted to do. “Apart from next week’s training get-together, England have a friendly lined up for February, probably against Australia, while Eriksson will decide what to do with his squad for the period between the end of the Premiership on May 11 and the Euro 2004 qualifier against Slovakia at Middlesbrough a month later. A training camp in Portugal, hosts of the European Championship finals, is the likely destination with a friendly or two. More immediately, Boro’s Jonathan Greening has been included in the squad for the first time for next week’s get-together, though Eriksson does not expect David Seaman and Nicky Butt, who are carrying injuries, to attend if they are not fit. Everton’s Wayne Rooney was not considered and Eriksson said: “He is a brilliant talent but it might be too early. “Who knows for February, though he will probably need an Under-21 game first.

Bellamy ‘expected’ at Wales camp
BBC News – Nov 15, 2002
Newcastle director of football Gordon Milne said on Friday that Bellamy will not be available for Wednesday’s Euro 2004 qualifier against Azerbaijan. Milne claimed the club is following medical advice that Bellamy’s problematic knee can only cope with one game a week. “As much as he (Bellamy) wants to play, we have to treat it gently at this stage,” said Milne.

Ireland begin life without McCarthy
Telegraph.co.uk – Nov 16, 2002
He has complained bitterly about the lack of professionalism within the association, not to mention the state of the pitches. Sounds familiar?What a shame then that the Republic of Ireland’s erstwhile captain will not be in Athens on Wednesday, when the two countries meet in a friendly, to share grievances with his soulmate. Unlike Keane, though, Tsartas has not cost his manager his job. This will be the first match Ireland have played since Mick McCarthy’s resignation two weeks ago following the team’s 2-1 home defeat to Switzerland in a Euro 2004 qualifier. The Irish public let him know in no uncertain terms that when it came to a popularity vote he could never compete with the man from Cork… Sounds familiar?What a shame then that the Republic of Ireland’s erstwhile captain will not be in Athens on Wednesday, when the two countries meet in a friendly, to share grievances with his soulmate.

The Irish public let him know in no uncertain terms that when it came to a popularity vote he could never compete with the man from Cork. Brendan Menton, who was FAI general secretary until his own resignation last week and had supported McCarthy in his decision to send Keane home from the World Cup, believed McCarthy would still be manager, although he conceded in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph last week that “it still wouldn’t have solved all the problems – the thing had gone sour”.

Rokke sells interest in Wimbledon
Telegraph.co.uk – Nov 15, 2002
In a surprise development Wimbledon’s majority Norwegian shareholder, Kjell Inge Rokke, has sold his interest to Koppell and another Norwegian, Bjorn Rune Gjelsten. The details of the deal have not been revealed but Telegraph Sport understands that Rokke’s attempt to be a major financial player in English football has left him £30 million out of pocket. Over the years he invested several more millions to keep the struggling club afloat. Koppell and Gjelsten paid £1… Bellamy returned against Feyenoord on Wednesday after serving a three-match European ban. But Newcastle insist that, on medical advice, the striker is restricted to one game a week as he recovers from a long-term knee injury. Newcastle manager Sir Bobby Robson said: “Craig was selected for his country but we have informed the Football Association of Wales of the specialist’s guidance and recommendations. He told us not to even think about playing Craig next week.

Keane in the clear
Telegraph.co.uk – Nov 14, 2002
There were three streets of people queuing around Leadenhall Market last night to have their books signed. In true character he refused to be drawn further on his comments except to say that a reporter would be next to be punched. Football Association officials, however, do not believe the video comment to be as serious because Keane was suspended following his dismissal at Newcastle. The Metropolitan Police have dropped their compensation claim against Millwall following last season’s play-off riots. Sixteen police horses and six officers were injured as hooligans wreaked havoc in the streets around the New Den after the play-off semi-final against Birmingham on May 2. This season Millwall have introduced an identity card scheme and banned some fans from six high-risk matches. A joint statement from the club and the police said: “The Metropolitan Police Service has been impressed with the steps taken so far by the club and its investment in technology, which has dramatically reduced ‘problems’ and anti-social behaviour… “Neil Ruddock, the former England and Liverpool defender, has started legal action against Second Division Swindon Town to reclaim more than £400,000 in unpaid wages. Colin West is likely to turn down the managerial post at Hartlepool in order to re-join Chris Turner as his No 2 at Sheffield Wednesday. Bob Taylor, the West Bromwich Albion striker, was ruled out for two months with an Achilles tendon injury yesterday while Wolves striker Nathan Blake will miss Wales’ Euro 2004 qualifier against Azerbaijan next Wednesday with a foot injury. More severe misfortune is plaguing Coventry winger Keith O’Neill who broke his hand on a fairground punchbag when he was invited to test his strength at a charity event. O’Neill, who has mustered just seven starts for Coventry since signing from Middlesbrough over a year ago, has missed all of this season after sustaining a double leg-break in a freak training accident in March.

Gabbidon boosts Cardiff and Wales
BBC News – Nov 11, 2002
The centre-back will definitely miss his Cardiff’s LDV Vans Trophy match at Exeter on Tuesday, and is doubtful for Saturday’s FA Cup match with Tranmere. Gabbidon was taken off at half-time against Barnsley with back spasm he failed to shake off… But if Gabbidon does not recover in time to be considered for selection against Tranmere, Lawrence will stop him from joining the Wales squad. Said Lawrence: “If he was definitely unfit for Saturday and it didn’t look like he would get better, then there would be a problem with him going. “But I expect him to be declared fit and to play. That’s the most likely scenario. ”

The Wales squad meets next Sunday before taking a six hour flight to Azerbaijan the following day.

Unexpected returnVogts has largely kept faith with the players who performed so well in victories last month in Reykjavik and then against Canada, although the return of Dickov was unexpected. Another chanceThe 30-year-old was substituted after just 45 minutes against the Faroe Islands in September, with Scotland losing 2-0. A subsequent fightback earned Vogts’s team a 2-2 draw, but the German coach has conceded that Dickov deserves another chance. “Maybe it was not fair to play Paul on the right side of midfield against the Faroes,” said Vogts… Another chanceThe 30-year-old was substituted after just 45 minutes against the Faroe Islands in September, with Scotland losing 2-0.

Vogts said: “I look upon this game as a challenge for me and my players after we took so much confidence from the last two wins.

In many instances, these teams do not expose star players to potential injuries, keeping them out of games or playing discount football jerseys them very little. This can allow an inferior team to make the result much closer and even win a game that is meaningless in the standings to its superior opponent.Typical Pockets most likely consists of nylon woven round four strips of leather based in an interlocking trend.
