Man City v West Brom: Preview
go.com – Jan 31, 2003
31, 2003, 1:01 PM UKMan City v West Brom: PreviewPARobbie Fowler is determined to show he can deliver on a week-to-week basis for Manchester City. The England international will make his debut when he partners Nicolas Anelka against West Brom. City have made a down payment of ?3million for Fowler, who did not play a full 90 minutes in his time with Leeds this season. Manager Kevin Keegan made a visit to the player’s house to seal the deal – and Fowler cannot wait to get started. “People were saying that I was fit, but not match fit,” he told the club’s official website, www… “Kevin Keegan has bought me but I am not guaranteed a place in the side. I believe you still have to go out and prove yourself and that is what I intend to do. “Meanwhile, West Brom midfielder Jason Koumas has warned Robbie Savage and Mark Pembridge that he is after their place in the Wales side for the Euro 2004 finals. Koumas has been in sparkling form for the Baggies and one of the few players to emerge with any credit from Saturday’s woeful performance in the FA Cup exit at Watford. Now he wants to transform that form onto the international stage after missing the win over Italy with a hamstring injury and the triumph in Azerbaijan for personal reasons. Koumas, who was in the same schoolboy side as Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard in Liverpool, said: “I’ve had to pull out of quite a few Welsh squads, which has been frustrating. I want to get a chance to play, and play well.

BBC News – Feb 2, 2003
You know, I’ve got a contract to the end of this season and then we’ll see how it goes in the summer and see what happens there. But, you know, I’m easy, I can take it either way and if I get offered a new contract then that’s fine, you know, that’s exactly, that’s what I want to do, I want to go into next season and hopefully play in Euro 2004. DAVID FROST:
And in fact in that situation hopefully carrying on, would you hope to carry on as England’s goalkeeper for the European championships in 2004?

DAVID SEAMAN:
That would – that would depend on if I’m still playing with Arsenal. You know, obviously there’s been a lot of talk of goalkeepers coming in and things like that, which is going to happen because, you know, I’m getting near the end of my career and they need to bring someone in –

DAVID FROST:
Wait a minute – Sir Stanley Matthews played his last league game at the age of 50 and he wasn’t even in goal, he didn’t have a nice cushy number in goal. DAVID SEAMAN:
Yeah but the balls are a little bit faster nowadays. DAVID FROST:
Yes, it is… So, but you would like to go on in those circumstances. One of the things both Sven has said and also Ray Clemence said, I think too, that in fact it’s bad luck, in terms of finding future goalkeepers for whenever you do retire, that there are so many excellent foreign goalkeepers here that British goalkeepers are not getting as much of a chance. DAVID SEAMAN:
Yeah, we’re not finding the young talent at the moment. You know, although having said that there’s people like Chris Kirkland and Paul Robinson that are coming along nicely, you know, there’s people like David James still there. But you do need to give the young goalkeepers a chance, and they’re just not getting it at the moment – you know, because of the influence of the foreign goalkeepers. DAVID FROST:
Yeah, and so that in fact that makes it more difficult to find a successor for you, so I mean it works out well. A lightning last question, what do you think of this transfer window? Has that worked do you think? There weren’t many, I thought there would be oodles of them.

Premier Focus: Case for the defence
go.com – Jan 31, 2003
Kevin Keegan dragged the club from the depths of despair in the old Second Division to become a force in the game once more. He grabbed the imagination of the Geordie public by playing irresistible attacking football, but narrowly failed to win the Premiership crown. Newcastle were there or thereabouts last season but could not last the pace again. Many wondered if it was just a flash in the pan – would they challenge once more this season?The answer appeared to be negative, as just one victory in the opening five weeks of the season left them just one place off the foot of the table. Sir Bobby, however, rallied his troops and the Magpies find themselves in the hunt for Premiership glory once more. He has struggled, like previous managers at St James’ Park, to improve the defence – perhaps the only area that stands between the Magpies and the championship. St James’ may be a fortress right now – Newcastle have won 11 games in a row on their own turf – but on the road they can be woeful at times… I think it will be salvation for the boy. His ability is not in doubt but I think he has to be given another chance. ‘ It was something of a surprise that Sven Goran Eriksson selected Woodgate ahead of more experienced campaigners in Gareth Southgate and Ugo Ehiogu for the Euro 2004 qualifiers in October. It is an indicator of how highly the England coach rates the young centre-back, and he surely would have taken the Middlesbrough-born star to the World Cup had the FA not barred his selection. Newcastle fans are sure to welcome the addition of Woodgate, as the club can finally boast to have a top quality defender for the first time the modern era. Sir Bobby is sure to build his defence around his new man, but this season may be too soon for the title. ‘I want to build a fine young team even if I may not see the benefits of this in a few years to come,’ added Robson.

SPARTA PRAGUE V LAZIO SPREAD BETTING PREVIEW

The Portuguese official

booked six players in the first leg of the Euro 2004 play-off match between Wales and Russia. Booking numerous players has indeed been a regular occurrence for Batista. In a Euro 2004

qualifier between Greece and Northern Ireland six players were booked plus one sent off. Six players were

again cautioned and one given an early bath in an earlier Champions League group game between Chelsea and

Besiktas. Batista was an even harsher mood for a match between Holland and Czech Republic when seven names

were taken and again one sent off. Further evidence of his strictness can be found last summer in

the confederations cup when he booked a total of 13 players in just two games. As you can see it is fairly

obvious this referee from Portugal is not afraid to brandish his cards… Batista was an even harsher mood for a match between Holland and Czech Republic when seven names

obvious this referee from Portugal is not afraid to brandish his cards. Sporting quote the bookings

at 40-44 for this market, which based on the referee?s previous history looks remarkably cheap, even more so

when the importance of this fixture is considered. Buying at this price looks to have very little downside. The only drawback to this bet is apart from the Chelsea v Lazio fixtures ? there haven?t been that

many cards shown in this group. However, we shouldn?t be too disheartened by this as I have already mentioned

? this match is just so important.

MANCHESTER UNITED V EVERTON BETTING PREVIEW
Readabet.com – Feb 1, 2003
Manchester United

are in the middle of a purple patch, even by their own very high standards, having won ten of their last

twelve matches in all competitions, thanks in no small part to Ruud Van Nistelrooy?s devastating personal

form. The Dutch striker has now hit nine goals in seven starts in total ? including that fabulous

hat-trick for Holland as they ran riot against the Scots in the Euro 2004 qualifying match. It?s

probably just as well the Van Nistelrooy has been in such great form, since none of his team mates have been

prolific lately. Paul Scholes will no doubt take time to find his feet following his return from injury, and

his goals could be a key factor in determining United?s success over the Christmas period. With Ryan Giggs

stuck on just one goal in his last nine starts, Ferguson will be very aware of the importance of Van

Nistelrooy at present. Everton come into this game with serious defensive headaches… Everton come into this game with serious defensive headaches. Alessandro

Pistone is definitely ruled out, while Joseph Yobo and David Weir are also likely to miss out on the trip to

the Theatre of Dreams. David Moyes? decisions do not end at the back though ? he must also decide

whether to recall Wayne Rooney to his starting line-up after England?s youngster scored from the bench

against Portsmouth and Leicester.

BIRMINGHAM V BLACKBURN CITY SPREAD BETTING PREVIEW
Readabet.com – Feb 1, 2003
It is doubtful this match will pass by without

some overzealous challenge either by or on Dunn. And once that first bad tackle is made the tone should set

for the remainder of the game. It is not just the ?Dunn? factor that makes the bookings an

enticing buy. Birmingham have lost three of their last four games and will be desperate to get back on that

winning trail. The extra effort could lead to players trying too hard and as a result a few extra bookings. Last season the two games between the teams produced eight cautions and one sending off. The

referee for the game will be Graham Barber who has at times been known to dish out the cards, although

recently the Tring official has only showed a couple of cards in Premiership matches… Last season the two games between the teams produced eight cautions and one sending off. The

referee for the game will be Graham Barber who has at times been known to dish out the cards, although

recently the Tring official has only showed a couple of cards in Premiership matches. However, in a Champions

League fixture and a Euro 2004 qualifier, he showed a total of 13 yellows and 1 red. Even though

officiating on the continent is different, it does at least show that Barber has lost none of his enthusiasm

when the need to caution players arises. Whilst the newfound leniency should be respected, it does

not mean high bookings make-ups aren?t possible anymore in the Premiership.

Bielsa snubFollowing Argentina coach Marcelo Bielsa’s failure to name the 26-year-old in his squad to face the Netherlands in a forthcoming friendly Camoranesi, who holds an Italian passport, was approached by Italy coach Giovanni Trapattoni on Sunday and asked to make his international intentions clear. ‘Glad’ to playCamoranesi told an Italian television station he would be “glad” to receive a call-up from Trapattoni and that, despite not considering himself to be Italian, he would not regard playing for the Azzurri as an act of betrayal towards his homeland. Italy chosenSpeaking to reporters after the Turin club drew 1-1 with Atalanta BC, Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi said: “This morning I was authorised by Camoranesi to say that he has chosen the Italian national team”. Genoa debutTrapattoni, who said: “If it was down to me I would call him up without any doubt,” now looks certain to pick Camoranesi for Italy’s friendly against Portugal in Genoa on 12 February. If selected, the right-sided former Hellas-Verona FC player, whose grandparents were Italian, will become the 36th player of dual-nationality to represent the Azzurri – and the 17th Argentinian. There have also been nine Uruguayans and five Brazilians who have played for Italy, a Scottish-born striker, Giovanni Moscardini, who played in the 1920s and a South African, Eddie Firmani, who made three appearances in the 1950s… If selected, the right-sided former Hellas-Verona FC player, whose grandparents were Italian, will become the 36th player of dual-nationality to represent the Azzurri – and the 17th Argentinian.
