Rooney in Owen’s shadow
BBC News – Dec 20, 2002
The Merseyside derby at Anfield on Sunday is inevitably being billed as a shoot-out between Everton’s Rooney and Owen, the two young super strikers tipped to spearhead England’s challenge into Euro 2004. He told BBC Sport Online: “I think they are completely different players. And Wayne Rooney hasn’t achieved anything in the game, whereas Michael Owen has achieved everything.

Cunningham wants Roy back for Ireland
rte.ie – Dec 22, 2002
Keane has not played for Ireland since walking out of the World Cup campaign following an infamous fall-out with then manager Mick McCarthy. However, with McCarthy now having departed, Cunningham is hoping Keane will be back in action for the Republic`s two Euro 2004 qualifiers against Georgia and Albania next year. The Birmingham star told a British Sunday newspaper: “It would be great to have Roy back in the side. The guy is a fantastic player, he is an inspirational figure. As the captain of the team I would want him back and it would be great if we could begin with a new manager and have Roy back as well… The guy is a fantastic player, he is an inspirational figure. As the captain of the team I would want him back and it would be great if we could begin with a new manager and have Roy back as well. If we are going to qualify for the Euro 2004 finals we have to win and having Roy back in the side would be a huge boost for everyone. “Filed by James Boylan.

“I don’t think there will be much activity, and not much money spent,” predicted Tottenham manager Glenn Hoddle of the opening of the transfer window on Jan 1. “It will be a few loan deals and swaps, which can be a bit messy. There might be a few frustrated managers out there. “Tottenham travel to Manchester City tomorrow looking to continue their good form following their 1-1 draw with Arsenal. “It’s all about reproducing it or getting as close to that display as we can and we can go there with optimism,” added Hoddle… “We’e been talking to CSKA Sofia, but it’s not as straightforward as has been suggested,” said Albion manager Gary Megson, who may initially want to take the 29-year-old on loan. HOW TO choose your words carefully. Albania’s new German coach, Hans-Peter Briegel, when asked by local journalists if he can guide his new team to the Euro 2004 finals: “Albania have never before taken part in a European Championship finals and I can’t now promise that they’ll reach that stage.

?The solution is to change the coach,? the Brazilian told Spanish sports daily Marca on Thursday. ?If that happens the players and fans will recover their enthusiasm again. ?

?I am not saying this just to be spiteful, it is simply the case that I do not like the way he works. ?

Rivaldo joined AC Milan after rescinding his contract with Barcelona in July, making it clear the return of Van Gaal was the reason behind his decision to leave. Slovakia appeal

Bratislava: The Slovak football association (SFZ) are to appeal against the fine imposed on them by Uefa earlier this week for racist abuse levelled by their fans at England players during a Euro 2004 qualifier in October. The $42,050 fine, punishment for abuse directed at England?s Emile Heskey and Ashley Cole during the match in Bratislava, was the second highest penalty ever handed out by Uefa for racist behaviour. Spokeswoman Karolina Ducka said the SFZ had decided to appeal the decision… ?

SOCCER: Robson well equipped for job – McCarthy
U.TV – Dec 20, 2002
The Yorkshireman resigned his post last month after the Republic began their Euro 2004 qualifying campaign with defeats away to Russia and at home to Switzerland. He also came under pressure because of the unresolved dispute between him and star player Roy Keane since the latter was sent home from the World Cup training camp after complaining about the facilities… “He always had his team motivated to have a go at it he`s a legend as a player and I think in terms of management he`s got a good record so you never know. “He added: “Robbo`s had European experience. “McCarthy feels the legacy he has left behind is a team capable of turning around their poor start to the qualifying competition and winning a place in Portugal in Euro 2004, even if they have to do it the hard way. “Somebody`s got a difficult task. I still think it can be done if the players are motivated and altogether. If they can win their next two games they can qualify, probably via the play-offs.

Beckham’s sweet revenge at glittering Far East finals
Telegraph.co.uk – Dec 21, 2002
Most of them were supplied by South Korea, whose horde of red-clad fans responded with a infectious enthusiasm that helped the party go with a real swing. By the time South Korea, conquerors already of Poland and Portugal, beat Italy 2-1 in the second round, four of the tournament’s fancied teams – France, Argentina, Italy and Portugal – were out. The Argentines did not even get beyond the first round largely because they lost 1-0 to England in the so-called Group of Death… “We’d been waiting for that result for a long time. “That also reflected England’s long-held sense of grievance over Diego Maradona’s first, Hand-of-God goal when they lost 2-1 in 1986. The Welsh, no doubt, would prefer to dwell on their Euro 2004 qualifying win over Italy; but for the English, it’s got to be Beckham’s penalty against Argentina.

Their mission was to climb “Tiger Hill” (actually a big ass mountain), and neutralize the three enemy bunkers at the top. Unfortunately, this meant climbing up a sheer hundred foot cliff face of solid ice. Since they didn’t want to all climb up one at a time with ice axes, they decided they’d send one guy up, and he’d fasten the ropes to the cliff as he went, so everyone else could climb up the sissy way. Yadav, being awesome, volunteered.”The change is vital if the Spanish league is to compete with the English,” he says. “The revenue figures for our clubs this year will be around the 1.55bn [1.34bn] mark, in England the figure is closer to 2.4bn [2.09bn]. It is not just wholesale nfl jerseys the TV deals themselves but the potential repercussions that being shown prime time in Japan can have on marketing revenues.”RB: Joseph Randle (Dallas) Though owner Jerry Jones is an idiot, there is no way that he lets DeMarco Murray go and is satisfied with bringing in RB Darren McFadden to replace him unless he was confident on his backup RBs from 2014. I believe the McFadden move was a sympathy move from a fellow Razorback alumnus as McFadden has been a true bust cheap jerseys wholesale since he was drafted by Oakland in 2008, though injuries are the main reason why. He was very talented in college but one has to wonder how much of a toll his slew of injuries has taken on his speed. With McFadden already battling hamstring injuries, Randle is strengthening his position as NFL Jerseys Cheap the opening game starter as Dallas realizes that McFadden is as far from a reliable workhorse back as I am. Randle is only 23 years old and has a great combination of size and speed. Even if Randle starts the season off with a mere 15 carries a game, I expect good things as I could probably get 100 yards per game behind that massive Cowboys offensive line.
