Ferdinand to fight ban
BBC News – Dec 20, 2003
It was initially thought Ferdinand would have until 5 January to formally launch an appeal. But that could be put back a week by United requesting written clarification for the reasons behind the ban and a delay due to the Christmas holidays. Former Football Association compliance officer Graham Bean thinks any appeal procedure would be dealt with sooner rather than later… So England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson will have to do without a player who was one of his star performers at the 2002 World Cup. “I have already made clear my thoughts that the process must be improved and I am pleased that the various reviews are moving forward rapidly to ensure this
happens,” Eriksson told the FA’s official website. “With regard to Rio, I’m sorry for him. I’m sure he will be disappointed to miss football for eight months and I’m sure he will see it as a blow to miss Euro 2004.

It is bad for football and bad for Rio to drag on. ‘It is awful to have your name on the back and front pages for three months. I am happy talking and working [with the Football Association] to speed theprocess up. ‘The England boss added: ‘I feel sorry for the England squad, for the team andfor Rio, of course, but that is a thing we can’t do anything about. I hope there will be a conclusion very quickly. We are already too late with solutions. ‘Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren, alongside Eriksson in the televisionstudio, said: ‘I don’t think there is a winner here… ‘Eriksson tonight insisted he is in ‘no rush’ tosign the new contract offered to him by the Football Association.

Eriksson’s current deal runs up to the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany andthe FA have offered to extend it to 2008, taking in the European Championshipsin Austria and Switzerland. ‘We have talked about it once and we are going to sit down and talk againafter the new year,’ Eriksson told Sky Sports 1. ‘We will discuss it then. ‘Of course I am thinking about it but it is a long commitment until 2008.

What attracts us is the option part of his contract. Hiddink inserted the option in which ?he can be set free for the 2006 Germany World Cup? as a condition for renewing his contract. This opens the possibility of Hiddink managing the Korea team again for the 2006 World Cup. He will be able to participate in the World Cup while still under contract with Eindhoven and return to them once the World Cup concludes. This is a very possible scenario because pro-leagues worldwide will pause regulation play during the World Cup. In addition, Hiddink still has contact with Korea. He made two contracts with the Korea Football Association before he left Korea last year.

Robert still feels the cold
Telegraph.co.uk – Dec 20, 2003
Robert is happy enough when he is at work on Tyneside but, having grown up on an idyllic island in the Indian Ocean, he is distinctly unimpressed with the chilly weather in the North-East. That physical hardship, however, pales into insignificance for the Frenchman when compared to his growing fear that he has been frozen out of his country’s plans for Euro 2004. He has been capped nine times but has not had a look-in since Jacques Santini took over as coach after the last World Cup and is now relying on his compatriots at Highbury to put in a good word for him. In France, people do not really talk about my performances that much. In all my time with Newcastle, the manager of France has not come to St James’ Park… “I often speak to Thierry Henry, Sylvain Wiltord and Robert Pires and it seems that most people in the France camp think that I should be given a chance. Hopefully they will recommend me. I have had no contact with the French Football Federation but I do not know the reason why. “When it is suggested he would have a better chance of international football should he play in London, Robert laughs “yes” before adding: “Newcastle is very cold. “Robert, 28, was born on Reunion, an island that neighbours Mauritius, and began his professional career with Montpellier before moving to Paris St Germain and then on to Newcastle for £9. He has had plenty of.

The Leeds star is merely the latest of a number of injury concerns for coach Clive Woodward. On Tuesday, first-choice hooker Steve Thompson (ankle) also pulled out and fly-half Charlie Hodgson (knee) was replaced by Newcastle’s Ben Gollings. As a result, England will have just four of their World Cup final starting line-up in the side for the non-cap invitation game. Full-back Jason Robinson, wing Ben Cohen, prop Trevor Woodman and flanker Richard Hill, who will captain the team, all start in a side containing three players who did not travel down under. England’s World Cup XV will be in action after the game, however, parading the Webb Ellis Trophy in front of a capacity 72,000 crowd.

Guardian Unlimited – Dec 19, 2003
But in recent months there has been a rise in the number of attacks on middle-aged, homeless men, many of whom are the victims of company restructuring but are often regarded nevertheless as feckless and worthy of contempt. In August three youths were arrested in Osaka for allegedly beating several homeless men with iron pipes. The authorities evict people sleeping rough in parks, often in an attempt to improve the area’s image before a conference or sporting event, including last summer’s World Cup finals. Yesterday, workers in central Osaka showed little sign of being embarrassed, let alone ashamed, about the the neglected body. “I guess the place where the body was found is kind of a blind spot for passersby,” a spokesman for Hankyu department store, Masaaki Takahashi, told Kyodo news agency. “We didn’t receive any inquiries or comments from our customers. There was no big stir among our employees either.

Saturday’s match has been widely criticised by Leicester Tigers coach, Dean Richards, who is frustrated at again losing a number of key players. “Yet again, we go into a game disrupted by an England side playing a New Zealand side,” he said. “In some respects, it’s a small price to pay for winning the World Cup, but we, as clubs, cannot go on this way.

A statement read: “The NZRU regrets that John has been subjected to unsubstantiated and hurtful gossip. ”

NZRU chief executive Chris Moller said a thorough review had been conducted of New Zealand’s failed World Cup campaign which found no evidence of “inappropriate behaviour” by players or management. Mitchell’s assistant Bridget Hickman was sent home from the World Cup, leading to rumours that she had had an affair with Mitchell, who is married with two children. “[The rumours] are just rubbish and why should I put up with that legend when it’s not true,” said Mitchell.
