Wales’ Euro 2004 appeal fails
rte.ie – Feb 3, 2004
But they ruled that the complaint by the Football Association of Wales was unfounded. The Welsh FA have until midnight on Friday to appeal against the decision and will discuss the subject over the next two days with legal representatives. Titov failed the test following Wales’ 0-0 draw in Moscow in the Euro 2004 play-off first leg, but the findings were not revealed until after he had figured in Russia’s 1-0 second-leg victory at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Wales manager Mark Hughes called on UEFA to impose the sanction of awarding a 3-0 win to them for the second leg, effectively excluding Russia from the finalsin Portugal and letting Wales take their place. But because there was no precedent for UEFA to base their finding on and because Titov has been punished – the player has been banned for 12 months, and his Spartak Moscow club have been fined – Wales always appeared unlikely to succeed. Hughes has already revealed Wales’ intention to go to the Court of Arbitration in Sport and if they go that far they are not likely to provoke any adverse reaction from UEFA. UEFA spokesman Rob Faulkner revealed the control and disciplinary committee were not convinced by the case put forward by the FAW.

Football Diary: ‘Free’ Euro 2004 ticket scam
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 3, 2004
That’s one of the ruses ticket touts are using to sidestep the law and create a flourishing black market on the internet. Others are offering tickets for auction on the Ebay website, where a pair of tickets for the match against Croatia have already attracted a bid of £317, and even then not reached their reserve. The free ticket scam is a device to cover touts against possible prosecution should the Home Office or police decide to run a test case. Officials fear a black market could lead to a complete breakdown in segregation in Portugal, as well as domestically where the problem also exists… While the people who buy the tickets may not have ill-intent, there is a risk of trouble if segregation is broken down. The 1994 Criminal Justice Act was created before the internet was as prevalent as it is today. We will have to have lawyers examine the situation to see if the law has indeed been broken. “Back Walton for goalsHoward Webb’s Premiership record of five Premiership matches refereed, no goals signalled has been well documented in the Football Diary. However, the man with the whistle to follow appears to be another newcomer, Northampton’s Peter Walton, whose four games in charge have contained 21 goals.

Players could take rule tests
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 1, 2004
“We should insist that a player – if he wants to be a professional player – must pass a referee’s test,” Aigner will tell BBC World Service’s World Football programme today. “How can a professional play football if not fully understanding of the rules and accepting the role of the referee? Players should pass a test and be a referee now and then. “Respect for authority is a major concern for Aigner, whose first experience of English hooligans came when Liverpool fans rioted in 1985 at Heysel when “we didn’t know whether we would get out alive”. Aigner added that he was “happy” that England had qualified for Euro 2004. “They are always a great team, great competitors and [their players are] well-behaved. The fans are one of these things we have to cope with.

France face Euro 2004 injury worries
rte.ie – Feb 1, 2004
Cisse, 22, was potentially the perfect deputy for Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet in a squad which now lacks strength up front. Santini should reveal his intentions when he announces on February 12 the squad to take on Belgium in a friendly. He does not have many solutions since Arsenal’s Sylvain Wiltord, for example, is not a centre forward. Manchester City’s Nicolas Anelka would be the most reliable option as the former Real Madrid player has already scored 19 goals this season, the same tally as Henry… Cisse, 22, was potentially the perfect deputy for Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet in a squad which now lacks strength up front.

Manchester City’s Nicolas Anelka would be the most reliable option as the former Real Madrid player has already scored 19 goals this season, the same tally as Henry. But even if Anelka recently hinted he could accept a call-up, he is unlikely to wear the blue jersey as long as Santini is in charge. Anelka has been tipped as France’s “most ineligible” player by the French coach since he turned down a late call to replace Sidney Govou in November 2002 for a friendly against former Yougoslavia. A few players then can claim a front seat in the plane for Portugal.

Twin peaks
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Feb 1, 2004
“You can count the bad games he has had for Holland over the years on one hand,” says Marcel van der Kraan, a Dutch sportswriter. His contract was settled in full by Galatasaray and his motivation at Rangers is beyond any riches that the club could have bestowed on him, even before falling into financial difficulties. He is playing for a place at Euro 2004, determined to bow out of international football after a glittering career by leading his country to victory in it. “You are only as good as your last game,” he says. “I think you have to show every game what your talents are, what your qualities are. ” Everybody already knows what the new De Boer can and can’t do. It was his searing diagonal pass that led to Dennis Bergkamp’s picture-book goal against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup… It was his searing diagonal pass that led to Dennis Bergkamp’s picture-book goal against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup. He is the antithesis of Bobo Balde at Celtic, or Jean-Alain Boumsong who will arrive at Rangers in the summer. He’s not particularly fast or big or strong, but is a throwback to a seemingly bygone era when defenders could play their way out of trouble and read it long before it developed. McLeish is well aware of De Boer’s weaknesses but has always had a hankering for his team to play stylishly from the back. For Frank de Boer read Franck Sauzee, whom McLeish used as a sweeper at Easter Road. If the Dutchman displays the elan that the Frenchman did, he will prove a snip. He will also bring Sauzee’s leadership qualities and concern for helping younger players develop, a rare quality in senior professionals which managers rightly cherish.

Deutsche Welle – Feb 2, 2004
“Rather, each one can bring along their own individual input. ”
The result is that it’s not unusual to find Rummel’s students going rock climbing, dancing to hip-hop or canoeing. But Cologne-based Rummel says this innovative form of sports lessons is still an exception in most schools in Germany. “The problem is that sports classes aimed at educating students, means a lot of work for the teachers and requires an intense rethinking of fixed ideas,” says Rummel. “The problem is compounded by the fact that most sport teachers have been around in schools for years, which means that they still employ the same methods that they’ve been using for the past 30 years,” says Rummel. Hand in hand: sports and education
This staid sports lesson routine at many schools throughout Europe might well be about to change… Redding explained that the EYES campaign coincided with several major sporting events, in particular Euro 2004 European soccer championship in Portugal in June and the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Athens. “I hope that 2004 will give a fresh boost to European sport in all its dimensions, not just in terms of high-level competition but also as an educational and social activity,” Redding said at a press conference in Brussels end of last year. Redding also wants to promote committed voluntary work in the field of sports in each of the 15 EU countries, as well as the ten new ones scheduled to join the bloc in May. Developing values through sports
Harald Zulauf, who is coordinating the EYES campaign in Germany said personality development and improving core values lay at the heart of the initiative. “It’s about team-work, it’s about fair play, it’s about anti-discrimination and social competence,” he told Deutsche Welle.

Anelka’s football does the talking
Irish Independent – Feb 1, 2004
“But he doesn’t talk too much and I never know how he feels, even though I am really close to him. ” Some of Anelka’s team-mates admire the way he refuses to play the image game. Had he not aggravated many of the clubs he has represented (refusing to train for Real Madrid and in the process inspiring the president to dub him ‘sick in the head’ takes some beating), he might have been looking at a more prestigious challenge right now than carrying a Manchester City team trapped in a demoralising slump. How much satisfaction does that bring to a player so highly coveted that he had been sold for a combined ST£58. 5 million by the time he was 23? He works, he trains, he scores, he sees his team-mates blow another lead, he emits the famous thousand-yard stare. (His agent brothers, meanwhile, are comfortable enough that Claude hangs out at the bar he owns in Miami while Didier tries to keep his fingers in football’s financial pie from his base in Madrid. Notice that they have joined their sibling in the north of England… Both insist that a grovelling apology might not be enough for reconciliation. But a window of opportunity has presented itself. Djibril Cisse, the favourite to be understudy for Henry and Trezeguet for Euro 2004, has been hit with a five-match international suspension after being sent off for kicking an opponent while playing for the under-21s and that effectively rules him out of the squad for Portugal. To whom will Santini turn? The usual suspects include Steve Marlet (who has a better record for his country than an English audience would imagine), Sidney Govou, of Lyon, Olivier Kapo, of Auxerre, or – if he has a sensational second half of the season with Manchester United – maybe Louis Saha. But none of them possesses the calibre and experience of Anelka. A group of his international team-mates have led the call for ‘Nico’ to be reinstated to the squad. Last week, L’Equipe reported that Anelka was interested, too.

Middle class Blues
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Feb 1, 2004
Claudio Ranieri, his new boss, collects midfield players the way other men collect racehorses or pieces of art. Chelsea have 15 men contesting the four positions across the middle line and even if some are loaned out, it’s difficult to take four from 15 and maintain harmony. Even Ranieri does not disguise that there is duplication. “I like young English players,” he said on Friday. “I like young champions and Scott Parker is one. Like Frank Lampard, he is up and down (the pitch), he is strong, he works hard and has fantastic quality. He shoots for goal very well and defends very well… Lampard is the most improved player of this season; a workaholic who has, by playing and training among the Chelsea set, added extra passing edge and vision to his industry. Parker, developed and honed by Alan Curbishley, the Charlton manager, has similar attributes and a ball-winning tackle bordering on spite. They are both on the brink of England’s team for Euro 2004. They are players who can forage into attacking situations and give the dynamism England, on occasion, lack. But now, even before they compete for the England shirt they are rivals for the same club role. It might, Parker suggests, even be good for his game that he is not rushing around the pitch every game, in whatever state of repair. He might be right, but if one of the two men is idle too long, if their quality is wasted on the bench, if they cannot show Sven Göran Eriksson week-in, week-out that they are consistent and bristling with desire, how can they usurp Steven Gerrard, Nicky Butt or Paul Scholes in the England engine room? Indeed, with David Beckham proclaiming from Madrid that he wants skipper’s rights to move infield from the wing to the centre of midfield, the congestion of Chelsea is a mirror to England.

Safin makes headlines in Russia
Independent Online – Feb 2, 2004

Having played 27 sets to get to the final, Safin simply ran out of gas against the stylish Federer. “What Marat has done after all his problems last year is nothing short of a heroic feat, it’s a miracle,” said Russian tennis chief and his Davis Cup coach Shamil Tarpishchev. The fact that Safin knocked out five Americans on his way to the final did not escape the Russian press. “Safin-USA 5-0,” gloated Sovietsky Sport’s front-page last Friday after Safin’s epic five-set victory over Agassi, displaying Russia’s glee at beating their bitter rivals. Safin’s fairytale comeback in Melbourne also helped ease the pain of Russian fans still in shock following Spartak Moscow captain Yegor Titov’s failed drugs test, which jeopardised the country’s chances of playing in the European soccer championship. The whole country has been on edge since Wales asked European governing body Uefa to overturn Russia’s 1-0 win in their Euro 2004 playoff and award them a retroactive 3-0 victory that could give them a place in the finals in Portugal… “Safin-USA 5-0,” gloated Sovietsky Sport’s front-page last Friday after Safin’s epic five-set victory over Agassi, displaying Russia’s glee at beating their bitter rivals.

Lovenkrands strikes
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Feb 2, 2004
Just as the champions seemed certain to become even more bogged down in their pursuit of Celtic, the Denmark forward secured a narrow win over the bottom side in the Bank of Scotland Premierleague seven minutes from the end before being carried off on a stretcher after a crude tackle. If Frank de Boer thought that he was coming to Rangers for a gentle build-up towards Euro 2004, the celebrated Holland defender and former Ajax, Barcelona and Galatasaray player was stripped of that notion on his debut, six days after signing on a short-term contract. “It was not the most beautiful game to watch,” De Boer, who resumed his partnership with his twin, Ronald, once the latter stepped into the fray in the second half, said. It was not the kind of stuff that they teach at the Ajax academy and was a million miles away from the Nou Camp or the passion of Istanbul. This was football in the raw — welcome to Firhill. “He can feel quite satisfied with his debut, especially on this pitch,” Ronald de Boer said of the muddy conditions… Just as the champions seemed certain to become even more bogged down in their pursuit of Celtic, the Denmark forward secured a narrow win over the bottom side in the Bank of Scotland Premierleague seven minutes from the end before being carried off on a stretcher after a crude tackle.

Walker likely to escape FA censure
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 2, 2004
Walker, capped three times by England and a contender for Sven-Goran Eriksson’s squad for Euro 2004 this summer, was fortunate to avoid a red card from referee Jeff Winter after wrestling the supporter to the ground 16 minutes into the second half of Saturday’s game. Despite Walker’s clear over-reaction to the verbal provocation from the male supporter, who was arrested and held overnight in custody, it is understood that FA officials are reluctant to answer calls for a lengthy suspension for the 32-year-old due to the fact that Walker was placed in the unsavoury situation by the slow response of the Leicester stewards rather than by his own volition. However, although Walker foolishly reacted to the supporter by shoving him to the ground and appearing to aim his knee into the man’s ribs, the fact that the incident happened on the pitch is likely to spare the goalkeeper from serious punishment… Dion Dublin’s close-range tap-in added to the tally to give Villa their most emphatic victory of the campaign, but O’Leary warned against any suggestions that his team are now primed for a late surge for a European place. O’Leary said: “Europe? We have no chance, so don’t kid yourself that we can go from 16th place in the league to sixth place. That’s not possible. But it was the kind of performance that I and the fans have been waiting for and we need more of that. “Leicester’s second-half collapse was a warning sign of the problems that lie ahead of Adams’s team. He said: “Too many of my players gave up after the first goal went in and they let themselves down.

Tug of Wits
Newswatch – Newswatch (subscription) – Feb 2, 2004
That shopping has become a very costly one for him. He has been banned for playing for both his club and England for the next eight months and fined £20,000. When United’s league matches and Euro 2004 starts, Ferdinand would be watching from the sidelines as a result. Ferdinand said in his defence that he had forgotten about the test. He took the test after 36 hours, but the English Football Association refused to accept it. Did Ferdinand use a banned drug to play September 23 match against Arsenal? The debate over the matter has again pitted Manchester United against the English FA. Alex Ferguson, manager of United in the past 17 years, has backed Ferdinand since the issue broke out… You might be confronted. ”
Lekan Kudaisi, sports commentator, however, believes it might be untrue. “It’s not likely to be true. It might be whipped-up sentiments against the club after all, most United players are English, that zeal of patriotism would still be there to play for England. ” Kudaisi said though there might be a “tense” relationship between the two parties, it would not be enough to deny them their sense of patriotism. Osaro Momoh, an ardent United fan, believes that United players were arrogant. “Though, I’ve loved United ever since I was a kid, there’re elements of truth in that assumption.

Football Diary: Offside call on Collina ageism
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 3, 2004
“Northern Ireland are the Wimbledon or Wycombe of international football,” he told the Bucks Free Press after his appointment last week. “We are 124th in the world, and there are teams above us who you wouldn’t even know play football. “Same old songThe Scottish rock group Mogwai have nailed their colours to the mast as far as Euro 2004 is concerned: they don’t want England to win. In fact, they made it clear after a concert in Zagreb last weekend that they hope Croatia beat England when the two sides meet in a group match. Barry Burns, multi-instrumentalist with the band, said: “I’d love Croatia to beat England. Please destroy those b******s. ” When asked why he didn’t want England to win, Burns said he was a “proud Celt” and couldn’t bear the thought of England becoming European champions… Chelsea’s Romanian striker showcased clothes for designer Jasper Conran at a charity event, and says: “I had some lessons on how to walk down a catwalk – with my head up – and I wasn’t bad. “Perhaps he was further distracted because “male models got to share the dressing room with the female ones”. Not that he is in need of additional female company as his girlfriend is Israeli-born model Moran Atia, now an Italian television presenter. And to complete the cloning of David Beckham, Mutu also has the name of his son Mario tattooed, in Gothic script, in the small of his back.

Roma therapy
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Feb 1, 2004
Others left Leeds at the same time, more have taken flight since, but few have seen their fortunes reversed as sharply as the Frenchman. Dacourt’s new club, Roma, have been prospering in Serie A — although last night’s 1-0 defeat at Brescia was a setback — as Leeds struggle at the foot of the Premiership. Dacourt has been excellent in the centre of their midfield, his prospects of going to Euro 2004 with France very high indeed. That this crafty, tough footballer should be thriving would surprise nobody who recalls the first 18 months of his career at Leeds, nor those who remember his season with Everton in the late 1990s… He’s doing nothing. “I didn’t say much about it when I left Leeds because the best thing is always to speak on the pitch. I think some people will ask now, ‘How is it possible he was not getting a game for Leeds and now he’s playing for Roma?’ ” So, how is it possible? “Terry Venables had too much power. Everybody is scared of him. I didn’t care. It’s too easy to sit in front of a TV camera as a pundit and say a manager should do this, or do that. When you are in that same position, it’s different.

The Premiership’s dream team
BBC News – Feb 2, 2004
Gary Neville remains Manchester United’s “Mr Dependable”, while Chelsea have youth on their side with new England cap Glen Johnson. But Johnson remains inconsistent and is often left out at Chelsea in favour of Mario Melchiot. Arsenal’s Lauren may not make the final cut, but Highbury fans might feel different… Arsenal’s Sol Campbell would make a formidable partner for Chelsea’s John Terry in the face of fierce competition elsewhere. Ashley Cole would be a favoured pick ahead of his England colleague Wayne Bridge, still setting in at Chelsea. MIDFIELDERS

Fierce competition all over, but the more intriguing selection might be on the flanks.

Butt says no to B’ham
Daily Star – The Daily Star – Feb 1, 2004
Birmingham had looked poised to snap up the England midfielder ahead of Saturday’s deadline after agreeing a fee with United. However Birmingham co-owner David Sullivan, citing Butt’s reticence over the move, admits their chances of signing Butt in the short term are “a non-runner”. “I would say we are not close at all to a deal for Nicky Butt,” he admitted. “We agreed a fee with Manchester United and we thought we were very close to the wages the player wanted, but it is a big decision for him and he wants to stick it out at United until the summer before deciding what he wants to do. “From his point of view, to have been at a club for his whole career and then rush a move through in a few days is very dramatic, and he wants more time to think about it. “I hope he will become a Birmingham City player eventually but it is a non-runner at the moment. It has broken down — we did agree a fee but it was the player’s decision, which we respect him for… “I hope he will become a Birmingham City player eventually but it is a non-runner at the moment. It has broken down — we did agree a fee but it was the player’s decision, which we respect him for. ” Butt’s request — prompted by concerns about making England’s Euro 2004 squad — was accepted by Sir Alex Ferguson but it now appears unlikely that it will go through before the summer. Sullivan does not believe the terms being offered by City had a part to play in the breakdown of the move, adding: “We were very close to matching the wages he is on at Manchester United and we were offering him a longer contract. I don’t think that was the stumbling block.

BBC SPORTS PERSONALITY AWARD BETTING ODDS UPDATE
Readabet.com – Feb 1, 2004
This of course won?t bother the Manchester United striker one bit. However, for those with a financial interest in Bluesq?s BBC Sports Personality market not involving Matthew Pinsent and Kelly Holmes ? it might be more of an issue. Backed into even money and still at that quote following scintillating performances at Euro 2004 and then for Manchester United, Rooney?s prospects of winning might not be as good as they were before England?s match in Spain. A number of ugly fouls that could easily have resulted in more than a caution was followed by throwing his armband off in disgust at being substituted, and then swearing at England Number 2 Steve McLaren. The result of this is the British public may now be more inclined to vote for someone like Andrew Flintoff who during 2004 has been in the headlines for only good reasons. Picked earlier this year by readaBet.

Tom Grumble Column
ic Birmingham.co.uk – Feb 2, 2004
Villa’s very own Matt Le Tissier (minus the waistline) needs to find consistency – if not he will be watching Euro 2004 down the Dog and Fox like the rest of us. And if Leicester want to maintain their Premiership status they have to improve on their quality of streaker!Now old Tom’s eyesight is a touch on the ropey side, but even I could see that this bird was ginger fat and hairy, even Ian Walker pushed her over when she went for a cheeky kiss. Anyway, briefly here is what else happened. A very average Blues side drew with a very average Newcastle side. The two main contenders for Nicky Butt’s signature managed to persuade the midfielder that playing for Man Utd’s reserves is clearly better than this dross.

During the quarter, we added number of key customer wins I’d like to share with you. As I mentioned earlier, we continued our success in NFL stadiums in Q4, with three wins including the Jaguars. To handle seating capacity of over 67,000 people at the Jaguar Stadium, the Extreme Wi Fi system is designed to allow fans the bandwidth to concurrently access and use multimedia applications without interruption. The NFL wins have attracted attention in the division 1 university market and the stadium markets around the globe.It by Jacquemus, and it fair to say the conceptual French label and Rihanna are a nfl jerseys shop match made in heaven. It hardly surprise that she has worn their designs on several occasions, but she not the only http://www.elitecheapnfljerseysauthentic.com famous fan! Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and Karlie Kloss are on the list too.”I think in retrospect, I can work on my timing, but I’m totally fine with my approach this year,” he said. “My only motive is to win ballgames. I’m tired of going home right after the season. I’m tired of watching the playoffs on my couch. I’m tired of it. It’s just a frustrating year. It’s been a frustrating career from that aspect.The companies said that the change will go into effect after the men’s NCAA tournament Final Four games on Saturday, NPR’s Tom Goldman reports. There will be no contests for the championship game on Monday. The companies will also not offer contests for the women’s NCAA basketball games, as neither company offers contests for women’s basketball.Heineken is currently undervalued as http://www.cheapjerseys11.com the stock is trading at only 2.2 times book value per share. It has a profit margin of 7.9%, earnings per share of $1.43, and an operating cash flow of $3.56 billion. Heineken currently pays a dividend of 2.2% with its levered free cash flow of $2.5 billion.7. Archie Moore: Moore has refereed several wrestling bouts. In wrestling lore he is most famous cheap oakleys for having a boxing match with wrestler Iron Mike DiBiase. Moore stopped DiBiase in three rounds due to cheap nfl jerseys wholesale cuts. This was not staged it was an actual professional boxing bout. The Ole Mongoose was a Light Heavyweight Champion. in the sport of boxing and he holds the record for the most knockouts in a career with 131 crushing knockouts to his credit.So perhaps these NHL players we so desperately love to take cheap shots at cheap oakleys deserve just a little bit of credit. They have hustled and grinded their way through some pretty tough competition to get where they are. If you only http://www.cheapnfljerseyssu.com take one stat away with you, let it be this one; first round draft picks, who are considered the best of the best, the most desired, the cream of the crop, have historically only been career NHL players 63 percent of the time. It’s a pretty tough gig.
