Vogts sees bright future for Scots
BBC News – Oct 27, 2003
“I’m looking forward to new youth competitions. The young players need practice and experience and we have to change this now and that is my target. “My target was qualification for the play-offs and then I hope I can go with Scotland to my home country in 2006 for the World Cup.

BBC SPORT | Rugby Union | Rugby World Cup | New drug test for World…
BBC News – Oct 23, 2003
The competition’s anti-doping committee said new laboratory procedures developed to analyse the drug were being implemented in Sydney. The test will be applied to all new samples collected and could be retroactive to earlier samples. THG is a previously undetectable drug at the centre of a new doping scandal which has rocked the athletics world.

Commentary: Diplomacy cannot save Chinese football
chinadaily.com.cn – Oct 25, 2003
Thanks to its lobbying prowess, the Chinese Football Association (CFA) has
earned a stronger voice in the international arena. The latest episode involving the choice of seeds for the eight groups in the
first round of 2006 World Cup Asian qualifiers is a case in point. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) initially planned to decide the seeds
on the basis of rankings in the run-up to last year’s World Cup finals. As a
qualifier, the Chinese team would automatically become a seed. But later FIFA, the international football governing body, overruled the AFC
decision. It said the FIFA rankings of national teams by the end of November
would determine the choice of seeds.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) is preparing to hold Coelho responsible for the disastrous defeats to Vietnam and Oman during the preliminary match of the 2004 Asian Cup. Cho Jung-young, an executive director of KFA, who returned on October 23 after watching the Oman match, held a press conference in the conference room of the fifth floor of KFA Building, Sinmunno, Seoul, and revealed, ?A general is responsible for the defeat in war. We are planning to examine Coelho?s replacement. ?

Cho indicated that Coelho?s leadership is defective, saying, ?Successive defeats to Vietnam and Oman was not due to the players? lack of spirit or poor physical conditioning. Lack of time to practice or the schedule of the K League cannot be the reasons either… ?

Cho added, ?The players did their best. When the result is bad, the coach is responsible for it in both professional and academic teams. It is doubtful if the Korean team would play well in the final match of Asian Cup and in the preliminary match of 2006 World Cup in its present situation. ?

KFA will convene a technique committee and decide the subject of replacement of Coelho upon Korea team?s return on October 26. However, Cho made his opinion clear that ?KFA is not responsible for this situation. ? For the question ?Just like when the technique committee appointed Park Hang-seo as a coach of the Korean representative team and replaced him immediately for the poor performance in the Asian Games last year, will you just replace Coelho this time without placing any responsibility on KFA??, Cho stressed that there is no problem for supporting Coelho, answering, ?The members of technique committee work hard as volunteers. ?

Regarding the question addressing the team members? discord between World Cup players and non-World Cup players, he stated ?It was a rumor.

?It is going to mean a great deal because we have been wanting this (World) Cup to be played in South Africa (for a long time),? said Mandela. ?When you have an important international game being played in a country, you spread the message that South Africa is part of the global world. ? Having lost to Germany by 12 votes to 11 for the right to stage the 2006 World Cup finals, South Africa last month submitted a bid, along with Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, to host the event in 2010, which will be held in Africa for the first time as part of FIFA?s rotation policy. The country staged a friendly with England in May to show its capability to host major soccer internationals. South Africa also hosted the Rugby World Cup in 1995 and Mandela, now 85, said the tournament had united the country and helped in the quest to overcome apartheid. ?The Rugby World Cup was played in South Africa in 1995 and it united both the black and the white (people in the country),? he said. ?We achieved a great deal with that World Cup.

This is the type of game that could do it for them this season. The Giants played smart football and got everyone involved on offense. Question on the Vikings: What happened to the Vikes on Sunday?The Vikings ran into a team that wanted this game more than they did.

Aamodt has had two small operations in Innsbruck to mend the injury. “It was tough getting injured just five days before the season started, but perhaps now I’ll be more motivated for the remaining years of my career,” said Aamodt after the accident.
