Hey, Big Spenders!

Could his meetings with Abramovich have triggered these approaches? The Johnson signing could also bear the hallmarks of an England boss who wants one of his best young prospects playing in the Champions League. Just how must Ranieri feel about his new boss taking advice on who to sign from another manager? Despite his protestations and promises to stay with England, there remains a suspicion that Sven could be the next man at the helm if Ranieri were to be removed, which, despite the sterling work of last season, remains a distinct, if harsh, possibility. Suggestions that Eriksson will join Chelsea after Euro 2004 do not seem particularly outlandish, especially in the light of those oft-quoted revelations that he agreed to join Manchester United on Sir Alex Ferguson’s original retirement date in 2002. Eriksson has settled in England yet has spoken of his yearning to return to the day-to-day lifestyle of a club boss. Chelsea could yet fit the bill. And one gets the feeling he wouldn’t mind a go at being a cheque-book boss in the manner he was at Lazio, where Sergio Cragnotti ploughed millions from his Cirio food empire into servicing every Sven transfer whim, even going so far as to raise the price of tinned foods and milk to finance the purchase of Hernan Crespo and Claudio Lopez. But the likes of Cragnotti and Internazionale behemoth Massimo Moratti have, despite all their spending, not been able to buy all-out success, which should act as a warning to any Chelsea fan thinking their club’s renewed financial might will see them lift their first title since 1955.

Elsewhere, there are other football transfer stories, just to show that Chelsea have not completely monopolised the market. England full-back Danny Mills could be on his way out of Leeds – at least for a season. The Mail reports that the 26-year-old will be let go on a season-long loan to help cut down on the wage bill. At the rate Leeds are haemorrhaging players, you could be excused for thinking that the wage bill would not be a problem any more, but such are Leeds’ financial woes that yet another prize asset could walk away.

Tartan Army ticket boost
BBC News – Jul 16, 2003
Negotiations between the Scottish Fottball Association and their German counterparts have ensured that 7,400 Scots will be in attendance at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund. While 9,000 fans have applied for tickets, anyone who attended one of the previous three away qualifiers (in the Faroe Islands, Iceland or Lithuania) will be guaranteed a ticket for Germany. Other applicants will have to wait for the outcome of a ballot in a fortnight’s time before they know if they have been successful. Willie McDougall, the SFA’s security advisor who successfully negotiated the increase in allocation, said he sympathised with fans who did not get a ticket… Willie McDougall, the SFA’s security advisor who successfully negotiated the increase in allocation, said he sympathised with fans who did not get a ticket. “There is simply too much demand for a match of this nature, which is certain to be a 64,000 sell-out,” he said. “However, I would appeal to Scottish fans not to try and buy tickets from other sources, as the Germans have made it clear that security will be strict and fans will not be allowed into the opposition areas. “Also, I would ask fans not to call the SFA to find out if they have been successful in the ballot, as this will slow down the process of allocating the tickets. ”

The match on Wednesday 10 September will be shown live on BBC Scotland for those who cannot attend.

There are tragedies all over the world. This is the safest place to play,” he told reporters. Levi, who leaves office next month, said he would work to bring Israel’s final home Euro 2004 Group One qualifier, against Malta on September 10, back to Tel Aviv. “If UEFA agrees to let the clubs host matches, I will ask for Israel’s last home qualifier to be played in Israel,” he said. FIFA President Sepp Blatter said last month that Israel’s home World Cup qualifiers would be played in Tel Aviv regardless of UEFA’s position. The Israeli national team have not played at home since October 2001, except for two friendly internationals this year against Armenia and Moldova. Club sides have not played in European competitions in Israel since March 2002, when the ban was introduced amid rising tensions in the region… “If UEFA agrees to let the clubs host matches, I will ask for Israel’s last home qualifier to be played in Israel,” he said.

Miserly Boro fail to spark
Telegraph.co.uk – Jul 12, 2003
Coincidentally, a left back also proved Portsmouth’s best first period performer, Matthew Taylor’s accomplished left foot prompting many of the visitors’ better moments. McClaren does not boast a bad left back, either. Indeed, Franck Queudrue – who more than compensates for sometimes rash tackling with a wonderfully adhesive first touch – must surely stand a chance of making France’s Euro 2004 squad. With the football as dour as the December weather, Portugal in June seemed ages away from this chilly Teesside afternoon. Boro, though, came closest to a goal when a shot from Mills eluded Srnicek before rebounding to safety off bar and post. Moreover, McClaren’s men also gained a numerical initiative when Steve Stone was sent off for his second bookable offence after a clumsy challenge on Massimo Maccarone… Coincidentally, a left back also proved Portsmouth’s best first period performer, Matthew Taylor’s accomplished left foot prompting many of the visitors’ better moments.

‘The same can happen here. If we get the first one out of the way, I think itwill start a snowball effect. ‘Bellamy personally faces a big few months in his career with a courtappearance hanging over his head and the chance to help Wales qualify for theEuro 2004 finals in Portugal also ahead of him.
