BBC SPORT | Football | African | Kallon fails second test
BBC News – Nov 14, 2003
Although the length of his ban, which will be decided by the Italian
Football Federation (FIGC), could be up to two years, previous bans have ranged between two and six months. Lawyers representing Inter Milan and Kallon have declared that they will demand supplementary tests. Kallon had been expected to captain Sierra Leone in their second leg 2006 Nations Cup and World Cup qualifying game against Congo in Freetown on Saturday, but he will no longer play in the tie. The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA)received a fax from world football governing Fifa which has ruled that he is ineligible for the encounter. Kallon is one of two African players in Italian football that have tested positive for a banned substance this season. Perugia’s Libyan striker Al-Saadi Gaddafi, who tested positive for the same substance, blamed medicines prescribed for backache when he tested positive for norandrosterone – a metabolite of nandrolone. Gaddafi is yet to receive any result from a ‘B’ test… Lawyers representing Inter Milan and Kallon have declared that they will demand supplementary tests.

SOCCER : Trumpet sounds, but whose?
International Herald Tribune – Nov 12, 2003
And $349 million — the amount Nike started to pay United over a 13-year partnership starting last August — gives the sponsor rights to get its message across. Why Tuesday, why that particular day at that particular hour, and especially on this particular year when the fallout of war is all around us? Because, say the marketing men, this was the most convenient time to get Alex Ferguson. He has a free week while his players are scattered across various fields on duty with their national teams, some of them in Euro 2004 playoff games this weekend, some further afield in South America where World Cup 2006 qualifying matches are already taking place. Not that this is an idle week for Sir Alex. He is tying up another new contract, reported to be around £4 million a year, or $6. 66 million, for three years, which will take his tenure at Manchester to 21 years. He is also a wanted man… 66 million, for three years, which will take his tenure at Manchester to 21 years. He is also a wanted man. The Football Association in London had set Tuesday for his reply to the FA's demand for an explanation as to why he appeared to impugn the ruling body's integrity last month. Sir Alex had been fined and banished from the touchline for two games for abusive language to a referee. He had later accused the FA of "doing a deal" with Arsenal, his own club's great rival, suggesting that punishments for Arsenal players brawling against United were too lenient. Presumably, in the air or on the ground in New York, Sir Alex found a moment or two to compose an answer to meet his deadline. Meanwhile, he was on a mission.

Terry takes his place at the top table
Telegraph.co.uk – Nov 13, 2003
No one can forget that Eriksson entered Roman Abramovich’s house in July. Ever since, the Swede has been linked with the far from vacant post at Chelsea and here the former England manager Graham Taylor, providing analysis for Radio Five Live, urged the Swede to stay. “When you look at teams who win the World Cup,” he said, “the average age is 28-29. By 2006 our team should be at their peak. ” Patience was necessary. “In 1988, Bobby Robson went to the European Championship and lost all three games. How he survived I don’t know.

Gerry McDermott: Rooney’s new-look revenue plan to revive ailing…
Irish Independent – Nov 12, 2003
The failure to qualify for Euro 2004, where a minimum sum of €4. 8m is on offer for just reaching Portugal, the prospects of balancing the books in following financial year are also gloomy. Throw in the scenario of playing the 2006 World Cup qualifiers in front of 22,000 at Lansdowne Road and it’s looking bleak on the income side. Next month’s World Cup draw could yield some rich pickings for the association in terms of television rights but Rooney admits it’s impossible to do any projections on potential income from those qualifying games because of the uncertainty over the stadium issue. “We are very concerned that we have not heard from the Government. We need a decision because we also want to progress with plans for our new headquarters and a national coaching academy,” he said. With the World Cup fixtures meeting likely to take place in January, the Government now have just two months to come up with a solution to the stadium problem or face the prospect of seeing Ireland move their home games across the water.

“Sunday’s World Cup match is the big one. We want to see skills and compassion in the game. Ghanaians want to see you at the 2006 World Cup because it is the highest level of football and that is where you belong,” Hainsworth said. Stars skipper, Stephen Appiah, who received the cheque, promised Guinness and the entire nation that the team will defeat the Somalis in the two-leg qualifier.

He thus urged the players not to let Guinness and the nation down.

Even if they see a head jerk you may not have even been close to grabbing the face mask, but if that head jerks at all that is an automatic fifteen yard penalty, and a first down. A shame for what could have been an excellent season.The 49ers coaching staff are promising that talented quarterback Colin Kaepernick will have a real breakout year after a disappointing season last year.
