The remaining 10 percent takes the club’s position in thetable into account. “A share based on the English set-up is fair.

‘Key role’”MasterCard has also been playing a key role in increasing the profile of the UEFA European Football Championship. MasterCard’s support will now cover four editions of the championship, as the partnership goes back to the 1992 edition held in my native Sweden, which I remember with great personal affection. This alliance with MasterCard has not only made a significant contribution to the standing of the UEFA EURO competition, but it has also helped bring benefits to the whole of the European football family. “‘Continuous support’MasterCard Europe chief marketing Officer Arjen Krüger said: “I’m delighted that MasterCard will strengthen its partnership with UEFA by sponsoring UEFA EURO 2004™. I am very pleased and proud that we are showing continuous support to this sports event – one of the most popular in the world.

‘I can do a job for England’
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 15, 2003
“I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss playing for England,” he said. “I still feel I could do a job for England, in fact I know I could. “His words may be music to Sven Goran Eriksson’s ears after a poor start to the England coach’s Euro 2004 qualification campaign… “Bobby Robson, Shearer’s manager at Newcastle, would be understandably reluctant to see his prize asset return to international football, but said: “I am English and I want England to do well, so from that point of view I would like to see Alan back with the national side. In the World Cup we didn’t have a player like him. Heskey and Sheringham were there but they are not of the same quality. “Eriksson probably thought Shearer adds something they haven’t got at the moment. It’s not a matter of building for the future. International football is about the “now”, about getting the results. Michael Owen would love playing alongside him.

McCarthy back to coalface
BBC News – Mar 12, 2003
Under McCarthy, the Republic nearly qualified for the 1998 World Cup in France but lost in a play-off to Belgium. They also nearly qualified for Euro 2000, again failing in a play-off against Turkey, this time on an away goal. It seemed the luck of the Irish had not rubbed off on Barnsley-born McCarthy. As Jack Charlton’s “Captain Fantastic”, McCarthy earned 57 caps for Ireland. He was appointed manager early in 1996, faced with the challenge of trying to follow the successful Charlton. McCarthy did not enjoy a good start, losing five and drawing the other in his first six matches in charge. But he was given time and they qualified for the 2002 World Cup finals ahead of the mighty Holland… But a lacklustre season in 1995 was followed by the ignominy of relegation a year later, with McCarthy departing in February to take over from Charlton in Ireland. After an up-and-down six years, McCarthy’s final record in charge of the Republic was played 68, won 29, drew 20, lost 19. His demise was hastened by stinging criticism from the influential Keane and defeats to Russia and Switzerland in Euro 2004 qualifiers. Despite being strongly fancied, he missed out on the Sunderland job when Peter Reid was sacked in October 2002. But with the failure of the Howard Wilkinson experiment, McCarthy leaves behind the comfort of the television pundit’s couch and reenters the everyday cut-and-thrust of club management for the first time in seven years.

Scholes: Strike threat real
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 12, 2003
“But Scholes has confirmed that the players seriously considered boycotting the match and that only the prospect of expulsion from the European Championship finals dissuaded them. He said in a magazine interview magazine: “The threat not to play in the game was real; we really thought about it. “Rio was treated badly, and we still think that now. Whether we would have gone through with the boycott, I don’t really know… The thought of being chucked out of Euro 2004 was the main factor in pulling back. “He added: “Of course, the whole thing was blown out of proportion. It was on Sky News every two minutes. It was just nice seeing the press get in such state about it.

Delaney will not rush injury comeback
go.com – Mar 13, 2003
The Wales international admits he could squeeze in a couple of matches before the end of the season if his recovery goes as planned. But Delaney, who has been restricted to just 12 appearances in a nightmare season, is more focused on ensuring he is ready for next term. A broken foot, sustained while on duty for his country in Azerbaijan in a Euro 2004 qualifier, meant he was sidelined for two months. Delaney was then only three matches into his comeback when he suffered a knee problem against Blackburn at Villa Park. He said: ‘This has been my worst season. I had a good start but then it all seemed to go wrong. It’s been one injury after the other and it gets you down.

Miller injury boost for Celtic
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 11, 2003
Scotland international Paul Lambert is already expected to miss the crucial Euro 2004 play-off games against Holland. The midfielder is suffering from a mix of ligament damage and bone bruising around an ankle. Dundee midfielder Gavin Rae looks likely to miss the Euro 2004 play-off against Holland with a hamstring injury. The international has been ruled out of the Bank of Scotland Premier League game against Motherwell on Saturday leaving a question mark over his fitness for Berti Vogts. Dundee manager Jim Duffy said: “We will have another look at Gavin but there is no way he will be ready for Saturday. “However, defender Lee Wilkie is expected to be fit despite breaking his nose against Hibernian at the weekend.

Wilkie speaks ill of Vogts
BBC News – Mar 16, 2003
The 22-year-old Dundee defender says he is still waiting to be told why he was dropped from the Scotland squad for the February friendly against the Republic of Ireland. Yet it was his club’s fine February form that helped Wilkie land the monthly Bank of Scotland award. Vogts will on Wednesday name his squad for the Euro 2004 double header against Iceland and Lithuania. And Wilkie said: “I was very disappointed not to be in the squad for the Irish match. “Now Dundee have had a great run, I would be even more disappointed not to be
in this time.

Football in brief
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 15, 2003
I could see it in their eyes, that they didn’t want to play for me,” Reid explained to the BBC. “However, Mick has proved with the Ireland job that he is a great motivator and the players should be mentally lifted by his arrival. ” Regarding Sunderland’s decision not to make a formal approach for McCarthy back in October, and instead employ Howard Wilkinson as his successor, Reid lamented: “All it needed was a phone call and perhaps they wouldn’t be in the mess they are now. “Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires thinks Sir Alex Ferguson would be better off concentrating on his own squad’s efforts rather than those of the champions. “We are one of the best sides in Europe,” said Pires. “It is not arrogance to say that. Ferguson may believe that but it is my opinion and I am entitled to it… But, first and foremost, let’s have no discrimination, bananas thrown or anything like that. I will be at the final this weekend and I will be listening and looking out for any signs of racist behaviour because this cannot be allowed to continue. “Wales are waiting to hear whether their Euro 2004 qualifier in Serbia & Montenegro will go ahead on April 2 in the wake of the assassination of president Zoran Djindic. Tottenham’s Serbian, Goran Bunjevcevic, said: “There is no way the game could be played at the moment. The country is in a state of emergency since the assassination and the airport is closed. “I have family over there and they don’t know what is happening from hour to hour. With no TV or radio, they are phoning me to find out the latest from CNN.

Davidson’s timely boost for Vogts
Telegraph.co.uk – Mar 13, 2003
7 million Leicester wing-back could face Craig Brown’s Preston this weekend after four weeks on the sidelines with pelvic and groin problems. It was thought the 26-year-old former St Johnstone and Blackburn player would definitely be out of the qualifying ties. However, should he come through Saturday with no ill effects, he could stake a claim for a place in next week’s squad for the Iceland match, at Hampden Park, on March 29… That has certainly helped my recovery,” said the Stirling-born defender. “In the last week or so I have seen a big improvement. Hopefully the treatment and excercises are doing the trick and I am not far away. “I am still not 100 per centt right but I’m hoping it will be good enough to be involved on Saturday. “Davidson missed the first five games of Leicester’s season after a much-publicised fracas with Dennis Wise left him with a fractured cheek-bone before an operation on a double-hernia. St Mirren boss John Coughlin held talks with Ricky Gillies yesterday regarding his future after reports that Partick have identified him as a summer signing. Partick’s assistant manager, Gerry Collins, had claimed the Jags had spoken to the former Aberdeen winger about a possible move to Firhill.

Healy snapped up for rest of season
edp24.co.uk – Mar 13, 2003
It seemed City fans had seen the last of the Preston frontman when he returned home last week after spending a month with the Canaries, during which he turned in a string of impressive performances. At the time Deepdale boss Craig Brown said a further loan spell was not an option, and insisted Norwich would have to come up with a hefty transfer fee to secure the services of the Northern Ireland international, who cost Preston a cool £1. 8m when he was plucked from Manchester United’s reserves a little over two years ago. But his opposite number wasn’t about to let the matter drop – and his persistence was rewarded when Brown had a change of heart and agreed to let the player return on loan to Carrow Road for the rest of the season. “Patience has paid off for us,” said a delighted Worthington yesterday. “We kept working to come to an agreement with Preston and we are delighted to bring him back to the club… ” Intriguingly, the two clubs meet in the final game of the season with Brown insisting that Preston still hold a veto on whether Healy plays or not – depending on what’s at stake for either side. Healy’s return also makes the home clash with Bradford City on March 29 a big doubt with Norwich now having three Northern Ireland players on their books. All three – Healy, Mulryne and Paul McVeigh – are sure to figure in Sammy McIlroy’s Euro 2004 plans, ensuring City are likely to avoid facing the Bantams with Mulryne and McVeigh missing. Equally, yesterday’s move gives both manager and player the chance to assess each other on a longer basis before the two clubs return to the negotiating table in the summer. “That’s something for the two clubs to look at at the end of the season,” said Healy. “I’m just delighted to be back and looking forward to being a part of Norwich s promotion push. We’ll just have to see what happens from there.

Iceland recall Bergsson

Bergsson may be at the heart of the Icelandic defence at Hampden Park when the country’s meet on 29 March. The 37-year-old last won the last of his 77 caps for Iceland in October 1997.

Ever since I discovered this March Madness trend, the shares have been underperforming. Buffalo Wild Wings has a beta of 1.14. This figure shows it is 14% more volatile compared to the market, which signifies a http://www.cheapoakleys2013.com higher risk or higher reward. Since I have only been tracking this stock since February 2016 and have only seen underperformance, Baratas Ray Ban I will continue to avoid a long term investment in Buffalo Wild Wings.
