Turkey invite still open

UEFA came close to kicking England out of Euro 2000 because of repeated fan violence and, while there is no threat to English participation in Portugal at present, Europe’s governing body will not hesitate to clamp down on any similar outbreaks. “As UEFA showed during Euro 2000, the behavior of fans is subject to very careful monitoring,” said a UEFA spokesman. “But we are running a football tournament, not a meeting of the United Nations, and we want Euro 2004 to be a celebration not an excuse for a fight.

Pires not fit for Arsenal, could miss FA Cup semi-final. Pires missed both France’s Euro 2004 qualifiers in the past week and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday the injury was worse than originally thought. “Robert is out (of the Villa game),” Wenger told reporters at Arsenal’s training ground. “His healing is a little bit slower than expected and he has still not been out on the pitch so his ankle is not ready. The injury is bigger than we expected it to be. “Arsenal, two points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table, will also be without goalkeeper David Seaman (hamstring), centre back Martin Keown (hamstring) and wing back Giovanni van Bronckhorst (ankle), against Villa, although Wenger hopes all three could be fit to face Sheffield United… Pires missed both France’s Euro 2004 qualifiers in the past week and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Friday the injury was worse than originally thought. “Robert is out (of the Villa game),” Wenger told reporters at Arsenal’s training ground. “His healing is a little bit slower than expected and he has still not been out on the pitch so his ankle is not ready.

Diamond can make England sparkle
Telegraph.co.uk – May 4, 2003
As Eriksson said of Rooney on Wednesday night: “I can’t see any reason why I should leave him out if he plays like that!”He’s strong and he’s extremely good at linking the front men and and midfield. If he can drop down, take the ball and turn with it, he scares defenders because he just goes into them. As well, he’s good at playing people in; and it’s not very often you see a 17-year-old boy with that gift. He’s an exceptional talent, there’s no doubt about that. He’s showed it many times with Everton. Today, he showed it for many millions. “All credit to Eriksson, then, for having had the courage to gamble on Rooney at a time when his own credibility as a coach was at stake.

Slovakia international Szilard Nemeth inspired Middlesbrough to a 5-1 annihilation of ten-man Tottenham Hotspur on a rare start for the north east club. His determination to prove a point to his manager could have repercussions for England, who face the frustrated striker and his countrymen in a Euro 2004 qualifier next month. The 25-year-old forward had publicly urged Boro boss Steve McClaren to play him more often, after finding himself on the substitutes’ bench since February, and Saturday’s show of form has boosted his chances of grabbing a starting place for the final game of the season against relegation-threatened Bolton Wanderers. ‘Nemeth gave a tremendous performance,’ McClaren said after the match… Slovakia international Szilard Nemeth inspired Middlesbrough to a 5-1 annihilation of ten-man Tottenham Hotspur on a rare start for the north east club.

Turkish midfielder Tugay Kerimoglu has slated England’s David Beckham for violent behaviour and bad language during Wednesday’s Euro 2004 qualifier in Sunderland, Turkish daily Fotomac said on Friday. England won the match 2-0 to replace the World Cup semi-finalists at the top of Group Seven but the game was marred by pitch invasions and confrontations between opposing players. “Beckham was kicking and swearing. I went up to him and said ‘all of Turkey is watching you. If you keep on kicking like that don’t come to Istanbul, protect yourself’,” the paper quoted Tugay, who plays for Blackburn Rovers in England, as saying… England now lead Group Seven with 10 points from four games. Turkey lie second on nine points with Slovakia, England’s June opponents, on six points. While UEFA investigates the crowd trouble at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, Wednesday’s events have sparked calls by some British media for England fans not to travel for the return leg, which many expect will be played in Istanbul, the scene of past soccer violence. It was in Istanbul where two Leeds United fans were stabbed to death ahead of an April 2000 UEFA Cup game against the city’s Galatasaray club. Ali Umit Demir was subsequently sentenced to 15 years in prison for the killings of Kevin Speight and Christopher Loftus. Tugay also criticised England central defender Rio Ferdinand, warning him that he may want to stay away from the return match or risk the consequences. “Ferdinand was swearing all the time.

Campbell is England doubt
BBC News – May 6, 2003
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted Campbell may have needed to play through the pain barrier with an Achilles injury had he not been hit with a four-game suspension. But he has revealed Campbell may now need to rest the injury throughout the summer in a bid to be fit for next season – leaving Eriksson without his key defender for the Slovakia clash on 11 June. Campbell would also miss build-up friendlies against South Africa and Serbia-Montenegro. Wenger revealed: “Sol sees a specialist on Wednesday about his Achilles injury to get advice as to what he has to do over the next six weeks.

Mulryne misses out on target
edp24.co.uk – May 6, 2003
The Northern Ireland international took his final tally to a highly respectable eight on Sunday when his emphatic finish at the far post completed a 2-0 victory over Preston. Mulryne had only managed nine goals in 94 appearances for the Canaries before this season and has almost doubled that tally in the previous 37 – but he still feels he should be contributing more to the cause. “I set out to get 10 at the start of the season and I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t reach that mark,” said the 25-year-old midfielder who ended a three-and-a-half month goal drought at the weekend when he got on the end of a Mark Rivers cross. “I got to eight in January and I thought I had a chance but then they dried up a bit… We’ve got a small squad and when we got a few niggles, a few injuries over Christmas we couldn’t really fill the gaps. If we could get a few quality players in it would provide more competition for places – and make us better able to cope when people are out. “Mulryne is now looking forward to a well earned break and will sit out Northern Ireland’s Euro 2004 qualifiers next month – but he won’t be putting his feet up just yet. “I going to stay here all May carrying on training and then I’ll be having four weeks off in June,” he said. “My back injury has been niggling all season. Sammy McIlroy (the Northern Ireland manager) spoke to me the other day and said there was no problem because he’d had a letter from the surgeon. He told me I was still in his plans which is great.

In my early misspent youth, I worked for the New York Jets hustling press releases to a largely indifferent press corps at the time. As a result of that brief association, I developed contacts on NFL teams who I can still call on for an educated, inside, no BS opinion on the owners’ sentiment on the issue. The consensus was that, yes, lots of owners lean toward approval, but one never knows. “Some of these guys exercise greater influence than others,” said one source. “There are owners who will oppose the move on all kinds of grounds, others who will support it as making sense because the economics work. The NFL is about two cheap football jerseys china things only: protecting the shield and growing the bankroll.
