Rivaldo?s agent Carlos Arini said Sao Paulo had failed to make a concrete offer for the 31-year-old striker, who was released by Italian club AC Milan earlier this month. ?They talked about a project but didn?t put forward any numbers,? he said. Rivaldo joined Milan from Barcelona after winning the World Cup with Brazil in 2002, but never managed to reproduce the form that made him such a success in Spain. After a low-key first season, he was left on the bench for the Champions League final against Juventus. This year, he has also been left on the fringes. Rivaldo recently described the past year as the worst of his career, while Brazilian media have criticised Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti. However, Rivaldo has kept his place in the Brazil team and scored his team?s goal in last month?s 1-1 draw away to Peru in a qualifier for the 2006 World Cup… This year, he has also been left on the fringes.

Pleat gets the nod from Brown
Telegraph.co.uk – Dec 26, 2003
I look forward to watching him in the Premiership. “Brown is suspended until Tottenham’s League match against Liverpool on Jan 17. The Football Association have brought. Steve McClaren, the Middlesbrough manager, has dismissed rumours linking captain Gareth Southgate with a January move to Manchester United to provide cover for the suspended Rio Ferdinand… Manager Alan Pardew has claimed Defoe intended to kick the floor in frustration and not Walsall’s Ian Roper. Jay-Jay Okocha, the Bolton captain, faces the prospect of two close seasons with little rest because Nigeria will play 2006 World Cup preliminary ties during the summer. Manager Sam Allardyce is pleased his playmaker will be available for an extra club game in January before linking up with Nigeria’s African Nations Cup squad for the 2004 finals in Tunisia between Jan 24 and Feb 14. But Okocha, Arsenal’s Kanu, Everton’s Joseph Yobo and Celestine Babayaro , of Chelsea, are among the Premiership-based Nigerians who will be required for World Cup qualifiers while other players are enjoying a rest. Mark Fish, the Charlton defender, has withdrawn from South Africa’s squad for the African Nations Cup after being told he could not report late to the pre-tournament training camp. Chelsea have made a third bid of £10.

Waterford News & Star (printer friendly version)
Waterford News – Dec 26, 2003
However, this December has seen the Croke Park debate elevate to a new level. The reasons are such. First of all, the draws were made for the World Cup 2006 Qualifying campaign in Germany. An unlikely event to trigger the start of the annual Croke Park debate but such is life. Out of the hat in Ireland?s group came the reigning European Champions and 1998 World Cup Winners, France, with that the debate began. The ?Best team in European football? coming to Ireland, obviously they should open Croke Park for that. A full house, 80,000 people… An unlikely event to trigger the start of the annual Croke Park debate but such is life.

The ?Best team in European football? coming to Ireland, obviously they should open Croke Park for that. A full house, 80,000 people. The debate was then cranked up a gear just a few days later when a eagle eyed Wicklow delegate came up with the observation that in the GAA?s constitution there was a loop hole that said that the GAA could lease Croke Park to the Government on four or five occasions a year. It was implied that the Government would then lease the ground on to the FAI or the IRFU.

UEFA diary: July

Interviewed by uefa. com, Mr Aigner says: “I think the main challenge will be to keep the integrity of the game; to keep the top part of the game and the grassroots together and avoid a split between the two. We have to avoid a situation whereby football at the top is seen by the public as a pure business circus. Governing bodies have a responsibility to keep the credibility of football intact. From then, the UEFA Cup format will be based on a first round knockout phase of 80 teams, followed by a group phase involving 40 teams in eight groups of five. The 24 teams who negotiate this stage (the top three from each group) will then be joined by eight teams from the UEFA Champions League for the final knockout phase, which will consist of 32 teams… From then, the UEFA Cup format will be based on a first round knockout phase of 80 teams, followed by a group phase involving 40 teams in eight groups of five.

Sport stars back learning project
BBC News – Dec 26, 2003
The project has been backed by many premiership football clubs, but now more rugby teams are becoming involved. The success of the project has prompted German football clubs to begin a similar scheme next year. Getting involved

And the Department for Education and Skills is hoping that the glamour of the world cup rugby winners will help to inspire youngsters to want to take part in lessons at sports clubs. “It’s getting lots of schoolkids more involved with their local sports teams while teaching them the basics in a way that interests them,” said England star Wilkinson. The Playing for Success scheme uses the connection with sports clubs as a way of motivating nine to 14 year-old-pupils, particularly boys, who might be less enthusiastic about the idea of extra lesson in a school setting. The learning centres make their lessons sports-related. The Department for Education and Skills says that this might mean pupils learning about maths through measuring the pitch or calculating the capacity of the stadium… Learning goals

The scheme has been claimed as an academic success, with the Department for Education and Skills saying research shows reading and maths results are improved among pupils attending. The scheme was launched as an experiment five years ago – but has continued to grow. By 2006, the government wants to have 100 such learning centres attached to sports clubs – where youngsters can go after school for extra help with homework or to catch up with lessons. Pupils on average attend about 20 hours a term at the learning centres in sports clubs – which will be funded by ?7. 5m of government money next year. Among the other sports celebrity backers for the scheme are the managers of Manchester United and Arsenal, Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. The project developed in England is being adopted overseas.

said. “It’ll be interesting to see how he goes.

“Very few people were identified http://www.cheapjerseysselling.com in this study . it isn’t really clear how common this really is and how it is linked to ALS.For now, the BU study represents a beginning a path carved for future investigation. It may also be a cautionary tale about potential long term consequences of concussion.”We definitely need to take it much more seriously than we take it,” said McKee. In addition, the lawsuit accuses several former coaches and assistants of pressuring players to compete while injured. Former Miami Dolphins coaching great Don Shula, ex Detroit Lions coach Wayne Fontes and former Green Bay Packers/Seattle Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren were among those accused of warning players they could be cut if they didn’t use painkillers to play.And moving on NFL Jerseys China to the next page, as you can see, content becomes an engine here that drives both broadcast and digital distribution.

And then there’s also an opportunity in digital distribution to take this content and distribute it, as we talked about earlier, in a wider way, which is across the digital platform.
