Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia are their rivals. ?Which other African country has hosted the Rugby World Cup, the World Summit on Sustainable Development, the World Conference against Racism, the Non-Aligned Movement Conference and soon the Cricket World Cup? ?The international community has taken note of how this country hosts international events and we now have to put this ability into action again,? the former member of parliament for the ruling African National Congress said. Jordaan and bid chairman Irvin Khoza, from the famous Orlando Pirates club, were the central figures in a brave attempt to bring the 2006 World Cup to South Africa. They were pipped 12-11 by Franz Beckenbauer-led Germany in the final round of voting after octogenarian Charles Dempsey, who was representing Oceania, abstained. His walk out triggered worldwide condemnation and calls for the quadrennial showcase of international football to be rotated around the continents instead of every alternate tournament going to Europe. The rotation system begins in 2010 with Africa offered an opportunity to prove it can organise football events as well as it produces stars like Roger Milla of Cameroon, Abedi ?Pele? Ayew of Ghana and George Weah of Liberia. Jordaan, a regular figure on the international football circuit, said he appreciated some South Africans might be sceptical after coming so close in the 2006 bid.

8, 2003Parreira to coach Brazil again Brian Homewood RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan 8 (Reuters) – Carlos Alberto Parreira, who led Brazil to their fourth World Cup triumph in 1994, was named coach of the world champions for the third time on Wednesday. The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) also namedParreira’s former assistant Mario Zagallo – national team coachin his own right for three World Cups – as technical director. The 59-year-old Parreira, who also coached Kuwait at the1982 World Cup and Saudi Arabia at France 98, will leave clubside Corinthians to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari, who steeredBrazil to their fifth world title at the 2002 World Cup in Japanand South Korea. Brazil had been without a long-term coach since thedeparture of ‘Big Phil’, who resigned in August and is now thecoach of the Portuguese national side. Parreira, who coached the national team in 1984 and from1991 to 1994, had repeatedly complained about the pressuresinvolved in the job and made it clear he was unlikely to sit inone of sports’ hottest seats for a third time. But he thought again after having lunch with Teixeira at aRio de Janeiro golf club on Tuesday. ‘I changed my mind and accepted the offer,’ Parreira told amedia conference at the CBF headquarters… ”Now, God has guided the head of the president again. ‘Zagallo led Brazil to their third World Cup trumph in 1970and helped them to fourth place in 1974 and to the final in 1998when they lost to France. ‘Everybody says that Germany are favourites in 2006 but, ifyou look at the technical capacity of German football and ofBrazilian football, I think we are on the way to the Hexa. Weare good enough to win the title,’ he said. Your views on this story?.

CSF president Nicolas Leoz described the FIFA decision as ‘apunishment and an enormous injustice for our association.

The volatile goalkeeper, a free-kick and penalty specialist who has scored more than 50 goals in club and international football, returns to play in his own country after an absence of 17 years. ?In principle, he will join us for one year,? said club president Cesar Luis Puente, who added that Chilavert would boost his club?s attempt to win the South American Libertadores Cup for the first time. Latinos still crying foul

Montevideo: South America, still seething after losing half a place in the 2006 World Cup finals, said on Saturday they would formally ask Fifa to reconsider its decision and questioned whether Africa deserved to have five places. A meeting of the South American Football Confederation (CSF) voted to propose staging a four-way playoff between teams from Europe, South America, Asia and the Concacaf (North and Central America and the Caribbean) for the final place at the tournament in Germany.

Nigeria bid for 2010
BBC News – Jan 6, 2003
The deadline for national associations to express their intention to stage the world’s premier football competition was 31 December, with Nigeria leaving it to the eleventh hour before announcing their wish to host the event. Tunisia also left it late before officially declaring an interest. Africa’s bids

Egypt

Libya

Nigeria

Morocco

South Africa

Tunisia

South Africa, who failed by the slimmest of margins to host the 2006 World Cup, were the first to register their desire to host the event back in November. Nigeria’s Sport’s Minister Steven Akiga said at the World Cup in Japan that his country wanted to hold the 2010 event. His comments were considered to be more to do with wishful thinking than reality. But the country, the most populous in Africa, has now taken the first step towards hosting the tournament. The decision to invite bids only from Africa, and in doing so to begin the process of rotating the World Cup between the continents, was confirmed by Fifa in September.

England’s future stars?
BBC News – Jan 9, 2003
Liverpool are in such crisis when it could be fixed simply by recalling Richie Partridge on either wing, why sign a wide man when he is already at the club. Wedge, England

This is ridiculous!! Neil Mellor has played less than 10 games for Liverpool and some correspondents are touting him for the England squad! He’s hardly set the world alight has he?

And before picking your squads for the 2006 World Cup, make sure you qualify for the tournament. Martin, Wales

How about this for the next World Cup. Kirkland, Carragher, Ferdinand, Woodgate, Cole, Beckham, Gerrard, Dunn, Murphy… Midfielders: Wright-Phillips, Dyer, Cole. Forwards: Jeffers, Rooney, Smith, Beattie. I’ve seen them all, I love football!

Amy Hobson age 11,

We are all getting very excited about Rooney and Milner. But do you remember Danny Cadamateri, Richie Humphreys and Mark Burchill? They are all mediocre players now. Ste,
UK

I believe both Carlton Cole and John Terry should be in your list. They both look very impressive. Kelvin Lyons, England.

Arie Haan: Confident in Bringing Chinese Football Forward

I believe I can be as good as he and achieve the same success. Arie said his first goal is to set good records at the 2004 Asian Cup. Then he and his team will work hard on getting the entry ticket for the 2006 World Cup. cn by Li Xiao January 8, 2003).

Ask Albert – Number 88
BBC News – Jan 8, 2003
Sir Alex Ferguson, for one, thinks there should be a similar midseason break in the English Premiership. Ted, UK

When was the system of three points for a win introduced in English football?

Jimmy Hill campaigned for “three points for a win” for many years, and at last it was introduced by the Football League in season 1981-82. Now the system is used virtually world-wide in club competitions and in World Cup and European Championship qualifying rounds. Loz, UK

Are there any player-managers in the League nowadays?

There’s Gary McAllister at Coventry City, Carlton Palmer at Stockport County, Paul Simpson at Rochdale and Keith Curle at Mansfield. Doing both jobs is harder than ever. Then years ago, there were 17 player-managers, including three in the Premier League: Glenn Hoddle at Chelsea, Peter Reid at Manchester City and Trevor Francis at Sheffield Wednesday. Glen Baily, UK

What is the lowest recorded attendance for an Arsenal first-team match at Highbury?

The post-war lowest gate at Highbury was 4.

Shankly Gates – Jan 4, 2003
‘How many fans on the Kop get that a year?’ and ‘how many years would the average fan have to work to get what Rivaldo would get in a week?’ would just be two of the lines trotted out by the anti Houllier brigade. So predictable are they in their quest to have a sly dig at Houllier, you could name virtually each and every one of them who’d be so outraged. Now, they turn on the crocodile tears saying Houllier will buy more cr?p players instead instead of signing an aging world cup star. And what would taking on Rivaldo mean for players like Mellor and Baros? All the anti Houllier brigade ever seem to go on about is that Baros in particular never gets a game. What chance for both Mellor and Baros if Rivaldo was to sign? Do they seriously expect a player who’s on the thick edge of 100 grand a week to make way for one of their hero’s because he missed one or two sitters? (Er, well yes they probably would and never mind the consequences of having to pay Rivaldo his ?100k whether he plays or not!)

Where would the claims of the anti Houllier brigade go about not keeping an eye on the wage bill if Rivaldo turned out to be just another player looking for that last big pay cheque (and some pay cheque it would be. He’d need a wheel barrow to carry all his money home with him!)? Aren’t they always one of the first to mention living within our means?

What about the current senior players who’d say ‘if Rivaldo is on ?100k, I want an increase?’ Would the anti Houllier brigade want him to get rid of those players because they were being greedy?

Nah, Rivaldo wearing the Liverbird is a great thought but that’s all it should ever be, a great thought and not, FACT. Talking of players, its sad to see the petty minded boo boys singling out another Liverpool player at Anfield for this childish treatment when being subbed… Smicer has, I think, run his course at Liverpool but, he joins a long list of similar players over the years who didn’t quite measure up often enough. There’s no need for me to tell you who’ll be the next Liverpool player to be on the end of the boo boys treatment when \ if Smicer does leave in the summer. One piece of good news is that Neil Mellor has signed up until 2006. Mellor has a fantastic strike rate for the reserves so much so that he has to take his chance when it does come along in the first team. Banging goals in in the Reserves is no good if you can’t do it in the Prem. If he is to make that break through, he has to start scoring for the first team whether he comes on as sub or plays from the start. So, until next time I’d just say, ‘Come on you Redddds’.

Elvis Costello opened his career by releasing two of the biggest albums in music history, despite looking like a hungover hobo. He was becoming huge in Britain, and Columbia Records saw the potential star power that a young Costello could achieve in America. There was pretty much no way he could fuck it up. But he could sure try his hardest.And we have made major progress, which is fueled by consumer feedback, and also continued top line growth in the last 14 quarters.
