McCann hits out at Vogts
BBC News – May 2, 2003
McCann has been in and out of the Rangers first team this season and has been troubled by injury problems. He missed the Euro 2004 qualifier away to Iceland through injury and has not featured in a competitive Scotland squad since then. But having agreed to travel to Iceland with the squad despite his lack of fitness, he feels let down by Vogts’ failure to inform him why he has been omitted from recent squads. “I don’t understand why I have not been involved with the national team for the last three games,” McCann told Rangers’ official website. “He (Vogts) phoned me when I was out for dinner with my wife and said how much he needed me for the Iceland game over there, even though I had a wee knock.

Vogts needs to find answers
Edinburgh Evening News – May 1, 2003
Eight of those matches have ended in defeat, and while Vogts may be right to point out that results in friendlies don’t count, there should, surely, by this time be an indication that he’s settled in his own mind the personnel to play the system he wants to employ. However, once more the Scots looked lacking in purpose, direction and in leadership from the dug-out, apparently able to put Vogts’ directions, whatever they might have been, into operation. Let’s not forget that Austria, like ourselves are hardly great shakes in world football, sitting in 61st place in FIFA’s rankings, two below Vogts’ side with those giants of the game, Zimbabwe separating the two countries. Listening to a Vogts’ after-match press conference is like pressing the repeat button on an old gramophone record, a depressing litany which condemns the coach as much as his players. “I am very disappointed, first with the result but second with the first half when there was no fight, not speed and we didn’t get close enough to our opponents,” he muttered. Substitute Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Portugal, or the Republic of Ireland for Austria and the frightening comparison and Vogts’ apparent inability to bring about change is all too clear. The appearance of Hearts star Andy Webster, one of the few to draw praise from Vogts, and the return of Craig Burley from an 18-month international exile caused by injury, brought the number of players capped in his short reign to 46, half of them for the first time… If so, why play this game in the first place? Why not give the players a rest and do the hard work ahead of the visit of Germany in the seven days he’ll have his players together before that match on June 7? Now only players who are playing regularly for their club will be picked. Why has it taken so long to make that decision having continually plucked players from the reserves, doing so once again last night with the likes of Dailly, Don Hutchison and Steven Thompson? As it is, Vogts has just one more chance to get it right before Germany come calling, New Zealand’s visit to Tynecastle at the end of the month. Can he conjure up a result to send his players into the crunch Euro 2004 clash full of confidence – or will their morale suffer another serious dent before such an important match? Vogts refused to accept the suggestion that perhaps the players were unable to understand his instructions or to follow them, his appearance for much of the second-half at the edge of his technical area prompting the question. Asked if he was becoming fearful of his own position given that managers are universally judged on results, Vogts snapped: “No, I have a job and I have to give all of my experience to the players, to the SFA, to Scottish football. “You know the problems in Scottish football and that is important. ” In that he found one ally, at least, in Austrian coach Hans Krankl, who insisted Vogts can guide Scotland into a play-off for Euro 2004, allowing them to take their chances from there. Krankl refused to comment on yet another witless display from the Scots “out of respect for Berti Vogts,” but added: “I’ve had a look at the groups and I honestly believe Scotland will be second in theirs.

England escape ground closure
BBC News – May 2, 2003
Uefa gave the Football Association a ?70,000 fine on Thursday as punishment for fans invading the pitch and racially abusing Turkey supporters during the game at Sunderland in April. But the FA has been warned by European football’s governing body that any more repeat performances could see them banned from Euro 2004. Uefa spokesman Mike Lee said it was the largest fine ever handed out by the governing body over a racist abuse charge. “This sends a very clear signal and warning to the English FA about the issues of safety and security and the racist behaviour of English fans,” said Lee.

United’s Gary Neville out for rest of season
SI.com – May 1, 2003
“He will be back with Manchester United for pre-season training. ” Neville will miss United’s final two games of the season against Charlton and Everton as the Reds seek to wrap up the Premier League title. He also will miss England’s Euro 2004 qualifier against Slovakia on June 11 in Middlesbrough. Neville, 28, has not started a league game for United since the 4-0 win over Liverpool in early April. Wes Brown has played in his place. Neville has been an automatic choice at right-back for almost eight seasons and is approaching his 400th game for Manchester United. The club statement said the surgery was to remove a screw inserted in Neville’s foot during an operation last summer.

Rooney tunes over Durbs clash
Independent Online – May 2, 2003
And just by coincidence the tug-of-war will feature South Africa, a country that has had more than its share of such tussles for its international players. David Moyes, who is Rooney’s boss at the English Premier League club Everton, has pleaded with England manager Sven Goran Eriksson to spare the player a trip to South Africa later this month. ‘Why should he not go to South Africa?’Moyes believes his wish will be granted as part of Eriksson’s pact with English club managers to cut down on meaningless friendly internationals. The Everton manager accepts that the teenager will be back in the England reckoning for the Euro 2004 qualifier on June 11 against Slovakia at Middlesbrough. After his sensational performance for England in the win over Turkey last month Rooney has become central to Eriksson’s plans… David Moyes, who is Rooney’s boss at the English Premier League club Everton, has pleaded with England manager Sven Goran Eriksson to spare the player a trip to South Africa later this month. ‘Why should he not go to South Africa?’Moyes believes his wish will be granted as part of Eriksson’s pact with English club managers to cut down on meaningless friendly internationals.

Ferguson fined for ‘fix’ outburst
rte.ie – May 1, 2003
Ferguson was fined roughly €7,500 by UEFA, after he hinted that the draw was rigged in order to ensure that United did not reach the May final which will be played at Old Trafford. The United boss was quoted as saying “It was a nice draw for the Spanish and Italians – I think they picked it themselves. The three Italian teams have avoided each other and so have the three Spanish. How do you think that worked out?””I can tell you – UEFA don’t want us in the final, that’s for sure. I don’t know why they have given the final to Old Trafford because they don’t want us to get there… ” Although Ferguson later apologised for his remarks, the United boss was still fined he, according to UEFA, “cast doubt upon the integrity of the draw”. Elsewhere, the English FA were fined 150,000 Swiss Francs after the crowd disturbances and racist abuse by supporters during their recent Euro 2004 qualification game against Turkey in Sunderland. However, UEFA stopped short of forcing them to play their next Euro 2004 qualifier, against Slovakia, behind closed doors. Filed by Rob Wright.

Scots must rise to German test
BBC News – May 1, 2003
The West Ham defender, who won his 43rd cap in the dismal 2-0 friendly loss to the Austrians, knows Scotland will have to produce a massively improved performance to have a chance against the Germans, who visit Glasgow on 7 June. “We have to prepare for the Germany game because we’re still right in there with a good chance of qualifying,” said Dailly, who was played in an unfamiliar left wing-back role on Wednesday night before being withdrawn at half time. “The Germany game is going to be really difficult. “Austria were quite a big, strong team but the Germans are bigger and stronger and they will play better football… ”

Scotland are currently locked on seven points with Germany and Lithuania Group Five of the Euro 2004 qualifying competition. The Scots have played four games, with the Germans one less and the Lithuanians one more. “We’ve held our own in every qualifying game so far and we were really unlucky not to get anything from the last game in Lithuania, which would have put us in a tremendous position,” opined Dailly, who admitted the nature of the Austrian loss was hard to take. “It’s always disappointing to lose but it hurts more when it’s for your country,” he told BBC Scotland. “We never really got going and when you lose goals like we did it’s always going to be an uphill struggle. ”

Coach Berti Vogts came in for a lot of criticism for tactics that saw a 3-5-2 formation with several players deployed in unaccustomed positions but Dailly believes the players must accept much of the blame.

Split decision eases pressure on Celtic
Telegraph.co.uk – May 3, 2003
The game could have been played this week but has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 16 instead. The game will be rescheduled again if it looks likely that the result might have a bearing on the split itself… The game will be rescheduled again if it looks likely that the result might have a bearing on the split itself. But with Celtic jousting for the title with Rangers, and with Motherwell 11 points behind sixth-placed Dundee, this looks unlikely. It is not the first time a game has been played after the league split, which may be scrapped in the future anyway. Two seasons ago Rangers won at Kilmarnock in a fixture that did not affect the pre-split placings. The fixture snarl-up remains, however, as Celtic’s involvement in the CIS Insurance Cup final on March 16 has forced the postponement of their game at Hearts, which was to have been played the day before. No date for this has yet been decided but that could also end up being played after the split. Hibernian manager Bobby Williamson urged the Easter Road fans to lift them to victory in the Scottish Cup fourth-round replay against Dunfermline.

Kerr and Keane ready for peace talks
Telegraph.co.uk – May 2, 2003
Kerr had his first meeting yesterday with his new coaching team of assistant manager Chris Hughton, Noel Reilly and Packie Bonner before the quartet sat down with the rest of the backroom staff to plan for next Wednesday’s friendly against Scotland at Hampden Park plus the forthcoming Euro 2004 qualifying ties in Georgia and Albania. Despite the reservations of United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who is opposed to Keane resuming his Ireland career, the former Republic captain will make his decision after discussing the matter with Kerr whom he does not know well. A few weeks later he was sent home from Saipan after a row with former manager Mick McCarthy having announced his retirement from the international stage… In the absence of Roy Keane, this pair would be expected to provide the main rallying point for victory before the significantly bigger challenge of collecting six points from the assignments in Eastern Europe. One player determined to make the short journey to Hampden Park is Stephen Carr, the Tottenham fullback, whom Kerr rates as one of the more important members of his squad. Carr, an automatic choice for so long, has not played an international since the 2-0 win in Estonia in June, 2001. That is directly attributable to the worst injury crisis of his career but, now rehabilitated at Tottenham, he is anxious to re-establish himself in Ireland’s plans. To succeed, he must displace Steve Finnan, Mick McCarthy’s first-choice right-back in the Far East in the summer, and Gary Kelly, who claimed the No 2 shirt before either Carr or Finnan emerged. Preston defender Colin Murdock has been forced to pull out of Northern Ireland’s friendly against Finland next Wednesday because of a knee injury. Manager Sammy McIlroy has drafted in Cheltenham’s Michael Duff, who was named in the pool that faced Cyprus and Poland in friendly matches last year.

Russia slumps again as the rest of Europe get friendly

Most of Europe’s soccer powers chalked up solid wins on a night of 18 friendlies on Wednesday but Russia again came unstuck in a more important Euro 2004 qualifier, going down 1-0 in Georgia. Spain, France, Germany and Italy all collected friendly victories of varying quality while in one of the night’s standout fixtures the Netherlands drew 1-1 at home with Euro 2004 hosts Portugal. However, in Tbilisi, Malkhaz Asatiani, who plays for Lokomotiv Moscow, scored early in the first half to give Georgia a well-deserved 1-0 Group 10 win over Russia in new Georgia coach Ivo Susak’s first match in charge. The result, coming after the 3-1 loss in Albania last month, leaves Russia in second place with six points from four matches, two points behind group leaders Switzerland. Albania are third on five with Ireland and Georgia on four… Ireland manager Brian Kerr took his unbeaten run to four games since he took over with a 1-0 home win over Norway but Berti Vogts’s Scotland produced another limp display to go down 2-0 at home to Austria. In other friendlies Croatia won 2-1 in Sweden, Denmark beat Ukraine 1-0, Romania won 1-0 in Lithuania, Bulgaria beat Albania 2-0, Belgium beat Poland 3-1 and Liechtenstein edged Saudi Arabia 1-0 for only the third win in their history. England were the only one of Europe’s top 25 nations not to play on Wednesday. Ironically, instead of preparing his team, national manager Sven-Goran Eriksson spent the day in meetings listening to leading Premier League managers complaining about losing their players for international friendlies.

Flogel’s heart still in Gorgie
Edinburgh Evening News – May 3, 2003
“Things have certainly gone well since I moved back home to Austria and while I was optimistic about the future when I left Hearts I didn’t expect everything to happen so soon. “We won the league championship on Sunday which was great. In ten years we have not won anything at Austria Vienna and this is the best trophy you can win in my country. “But hopefully we are not finished. We have a cup semi-final at Salzburg in just under a fortnight and having won the league we obviously want to do the Double. “They play on an artificial surface, though, which is a big advantage for them but we’ll be giving it our best shot. ” Delighted as he is with the league medal and the prospect of Champions’ League football next season, Flogel reckons that achievement doesn’t come close to that momentous afternoon at Parkhead when Stephane Adam grabbed the winner against Rangers to bring the Scottish Cup back to Gorgie for the first time in 42 years… “Both sides had similar problems going into the game as we were also trying out new players. It was a good test for us and one which I think we passed. ” Having spent so long in Edinburgh, Flogel still likes to see Scotland do well and he believes Vogts’ outfit can bounce back from this latest crushing disappointment to give Germany a run for its money when the teams meet in the crunch Euro 2004 qualifier at Hampden on June 7. “I think it was a different Scotland to what people are used to on Wednesday. I hope so,” he said. “They can play much better than that and perhaps when they face the Germans a counter-attacking game will suit them rather than having to take the game to their opponents. “The biggest problem for the Scots was that they didn’t play as a unit.

The European governing body’s disciplinary committee also will discuss a case involving Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, accused by UEFA of bringing soccer into disrepute by suggesting the Champions League quarterfinal draw was rigged. Tempers flared on and off the pitch April 2 during England’s 2-0 home victory over Turkey in Sunderland. Police arrested more than 90 rowdy English supporters during the match in Sunderland. In a separate incident, mounted police charged a group of England fans who were attacking buses carrying Turkish supporters… UEFA said Ferguson was suspected of bringing the sport into disrepute. UEFA regulations say officials should “conduct themselves according to the principle of loyalty, integrity and sportsmanship. ” The governing body did not say what sanction Ferguson could face. The UEFA hearing also will consider punishment for crowd disturbances during Inter Milan’s second group stage match against Newcastle United in Milan in March. Related informationStories.

Neville hit by injury
BBC News – May 1, 2003
The defender will play no further part in Manchester United’s quest for the Premiership title. He will also miss England’s friendlies against South Africa and Serbia and Montenegro and the Euro 2004 qualifier against Slovakia on 11 June. Neville broke a bone in the same foot a year ago, forcing him to miss England’s 2002 World Cup campaign. The 28-year-old, who has not started a league game for United since the 4-0 win over Liverpool at the beginning of April, will undergo surgery to remove a screw originally inserted into his foot during an operation last summer. “Gary will undergo surgery on Thursday after experiencing discomfort in his left foot,” said a United statement. “He will be back with Manchester United for pre-season training… He will also miss England’s friendlies against South Africa and Serbia and Montenegro and the Euro 2004 qualifier against Slovakia on 11 June.

which grabbed a 2-0 win over Spurs at White Hart Lane last weekend, which leaves
United needing victories over Charlton and Everton of the final day to secure
their eighth Premiership title.

SI.com – Soccer – Kluivert equals scoring record Dutch draw Portugal…
SI.com – May 1, 2003
The Barcelona striker, winning his 68th cap, struck in the 27th minute with a left foot shot from 15 metres to give his side the lead. But Euro 2004 hosts Portugal, led by Luis Figo and Rui Costa, were a constant threat and they levelled 12 minutes from time when Simao’s shot was deflected by Frank de Boer to leavegoalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar helpless. Portugal had the first clear chance to open the scoring on 15 minutes when Luis Figo and Pauleta combined to feed Simao shoe shot from 12 metres was saved by the feet of van der Sar. But 12 minutes later a Roy Makaay backheel put Kluivert clear on goal with only goalkeeper Ricardo to beat. The Barcelona forward placed the ball into the left corner of the net to give the Dutch the lead. Kluivert’s 37th goal in 68 internationals pulled him level with Bergkamp as the all-time top Dutch scorer… “With Rafael van der Vaart instead of Kluivert we lost control of the midfield but we created three big chances in thefirst 10 minutes. That’s the quality of Van der Vaart in attack but playing him forces me to change my tactics” said Advocaat. The Dutch coach was pleased with the performance of Overmars but would not guarantee that the Barcelona winger would be in the side for the qualifier against Belarus. “Marc has six more matches to go with his team so we have to wait to see where he stands at the end of the season,” he said.

“It is a big chance for him,” Vogts said. “He is very quick and I am looking for a very quick player. I do not know what his best position is. At the moment he is playing on the left side but I think maybe he would play better in front. “He is very confident on the ball and that is good. “Cameron’s return was arguably the biggest surprise as he has not featured in Vogts’ plans since Scotland were humbled 5-0 by France in March 2002. Celtic goalkeeper Rab Douglas is also in the squad despite having yet to fully recover from recent hernia surgery… He will play for the under-21s on the Tuesday before joining up with the A squad the day after. Vogts will be hoping to use the friendly to continue the recent upturn in Scotland’s fortunes. After a humiliating 2-2 draw in the Faroe Islands in September, the Scots got their Euro 2004 qualifying campaign back on track with an impressive 2-0 win in Iceland in October. They followed that up with a friendly win over Canada to help ease the painful memory of the trip to the Faroes and the run of five straight defeats that marked the start of Vogts’ reign.
