Baggio set for Italian renaissance
CNN International – Apr 27, 2004
In March he celebrated his 200th Serie A goal, taking him to fifth on the all-time list, and he has found the net 11 times for Brescia this season. With Inter’s Christian Vieri out of sorts, Juventus’ Alessandro Del Piero short of form and AC Milan’s Filippo Inzaghi struggling to shake off an ankle injury, the Corriere dello Sport newspaper on Monday called for Baggio’s Italian renaissance to be continued into the summer. "Baggio merits to go to Euro 2004 not for his extraordinary career, but because he’s playing well and many of our strikers are having problems," the paper said in an editorial. Baggio, known as the "Divine Ponytail" broke into the Italian side during their run to the semifinals of the 1990 World Cup and was named FIFA’s World Player of the Year in 1993. He will always be associated with the 1994 World Cup, when Italy reached the final on the back of a string of brilliant Baggio performances. But Italy’s hero famously missed the decisive penalty in the shootout at the end of a 0-0 draw, handing the trophy to Brazil. Inzaghi operationInzaghi, meanwhile, is to undergo exploratory surgery on his troublesome left ankle in a bid to save his season from being cut short, his Serie A club said.

Brilliant Gerrard calls winning shot
Telegraph.co.uk – Apr 26, 2004
In attack, Ryan Giggs and Louis Saha started together for the first time and were at the heart of three good chances to equalise. With 11 minutes left, Giggs hit both posts with a shot from Saha’s pass. Apart from that it might be worth someone reminding the Welshman that his nation’s failure to qualify for Euro 2004 means he does not have to worry about conserving energy for the summer. Liverpool’s central defensive partnership of Sami Hyypia and Stephane Henchoz seem to be slowing down by the day and yet they were caused remarkably few problems by a United attack that has pace as its signature. But this was Houllier’s day – a day for him to dedicate, in his uniquely earnest way, “to the fans”. “We had a meeting on Friday which was important for the course of the season,” he said. But as he was reminded again by the home support on Saturday, it has been 14 years since the last League championship at Anfield.

Woodgate in fight for Euro fitness
CNN International – Apr 27, 2004
Club manager Bobby Robson said the 24-year-old would be out for six weeks, ruling him out of the rest of the season, and possibly the Portugal finals. "I am not saying he is out for that. That’s in June and we are still in April," Robson told BBC Radio. England unveil their squad for Portugal on May 17 although they do not have to name their final selection until June 3. They play their first game against France 10 days later. England coach Sven Goran Eriksson, who also faces losing Middlesbrough’s Gareth Southgate, said Woodgate’s absence would be a setback.

Scotland must stand by their man, says loyal Burns
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Apr 27, 2004
Then we would have to start all over again and find someone else. ” Burns believes Scotland are close to turning the corner, something that was hinted at in reaching the Euro 2004 play-offs, but optimism has evaporated with those heavy defeats in Amsterdam and Cardiff and then last month’s defeat by Romania at Hampden Park, “There is a metamorphosis coming,” he insisted. “We have players like Darren Fletcher, James McFadden and Stephen Pearson who are all there now, who were not part of the team when we started in the Euro 2004 qualifiers. ” When asked if another friendly defeat in the Parken Stadion from a team that is going to this summer’s European Championship finals in Portugal would be damaging, Burns simply said: “We benefit from playing these games, especially for untried players such as Peter Canero or Quashie. “We would get the chance to see new players, even if they are not surrounded by our best team. We could have arranged to play a small country and maybe turn them over, but we are a small country ourselves, in football terms, right now. ” Certainly, Vogts’s plans have not been helped by the absence of five of his key players tomorrow night, as well as the untried Quashie… “We have players like Darren Fletcher, James McFadden and Stephen Pearson who are all there now, who were not part of the team when we started in the Euro 2004 qualifiers. ” When asked if another friendly defeat in the Parken Stadion from a team that is going to this summer’s European Championship finals in Portugal would be damaging, Burns simply said: “We benefit from playing these games, especially for untried players such as Peter Canero or Quashie. “We would get the chance to see new players, even if they are not surrounded by our best team.

The Celtic trio of Jackie McNamara, Stephen Pearson and Robert Douglas all withdrew because of injuries, as expected, after missing their side’s match with Heart of Midlothian on Sunday, leaving Vogts to fill key roles in defence, midfield and goalkeeper. That absence was compounded by further withdrawals yesterday of the strikers, Steve Crawford, of Dunfermline Athletic, and Paul Dickov, of Leicester City.

Yanal signs four-year Turkish deal
CNN International – Apr 26, 2004
"For us, 2006 is very important," said Yanal. "What we’ll see is there’s no place the Turkish national squad can’t go. "Gunes was sacked after Turkey missed out on Euro 2004 after losing to Latvia in a playoff. "Not going to the European Championships has been a good lesson for us and I think that Turkish players have learned this lesson well," said Yanal. "Our biggest duty is to create new players, and players who can create a new vision for Turkish soccer. "Yanal’s first game in charge is Wednesday’s friendly against Belgium. Besiktas chairman to step downBesiktas chairman Serdar Bilgili says he will quit after suffering abuse from fans during their 3-1 defeat by Istanbul rivals Fenerbahce at the weekend.

UEFA Cup – News & Features – News Specific
uefa.comUEFA.com – Apr 27, 2004
“Marseille tripNewcastle travel to Olympique de Marseille for the second leg of their UEFA Cup semi-final on 6 May with the score currently at 0-0, and already have doubts over Kieron Dyer, Craig Bellamy and Jermaine Jenas. Should Newcastle progress, the UEFA Cup final is on 19 May in Gothenberg, by which point the club hope also to have secured fourth place in the Premiership and a UEFA Champions League qualifying berth. England squadEngland are set to announce their 23-man squad for EURO 2004™ on 17 May, although the deadline for confirmation is not until 3 June. Woodgate’s importance to the squad has been heightened by the suspension of Rio Ferdinand and injury doubts around Gareth Southgate. All rights reserved.

Euro 2004 lift for Anelka
BBC News – Apr 25, 2004
The Manchester City striker has scored 24 goals this season, despite playing for a relegation-haunted side. Anelka fell out with Santini last year but it seems injuries to other French strikers Steve Marlet and Sidney Govou have opened the door. “He is scoring goal after goal. A big team needs goalscorers,” said Santini… Anelka launched a scathing attack on Santini last August, saying the coach would have to “beg on his knees” for him to consider returning. The player has since publicly
apologised. The tension appeared to thaw when Santini pencilled in Anelka on his pre-selection list for the friendly with the Netherlands last month, although not to the final squad. Auxerre striker Djibril Cisse may also have a chance of making the plane to Portugal after fearing suspension would rule him out. Cisse, tipped to become a Liverpool player this summer and the top scorer in the French First Division, has had a Uefa suspension reduced from five games to four, meaning the earliest he could play would be the semi-finals of Euro 2004. Santini believes the 22-year-old deserves to be granted as much leeway as possible. “There are those that have a 95 per cent chance of going, others have two percent.

Your Verdict: Spanish eyes
go.com – Apr 26, 2004
comI don’t think that Owen would be the best purchase for Barcelona. Patrick Kluivert has underperformed, despite scoring at the weekend, this season and Rijkaard would be best advised to seek a similar replacement for him, such as Kezman. Barcelona already have a pint-sized speedy striker in Saviola and do not need another one. The ?50million could be spent elsewhere. Derek TrotterOwen would do well to snap up any offer that comes from Barcelona as he is growing stagnant and long-ball Liverpool. Barcelona proved what an attacking threat they pose against Real Madrid at the weekend and Owen could feast rather than feeding on scraps. I think Owen could prove his doubters wrong with a move to a more attack minded team and his improved for would be a boost for England and the perception of English players around the world… Should he return to England, he will be a great asset to any club. Chelsea could certainly benefit by having him and it would probably benefit his home life. Beckham will have an opportunity at Euro 2004 to show all of Europe his abilities and personality, which make him a desirable club acquisition, no matter where he goes. As for Madrid, they could now be on the verge of slipping into the clubs dark days again. Susan HandyExcellent story. I enjoyed the comments by Sobrino, and I totally agree with him. AlinkalBeckham is a role player.

BBC News – Apr 27, 2004
They talked about everything from America to Euro 2004, to what kind of burgers they like best. Is cracking America a priority for you?
James: I’d say it’s up there. Charlie: It’s always good to get to different territories and I hope we do well. Matt: America’s kinda the Daddy, isn’t it?
Charlie: The thing is with America – it’s one of the coolest places on the planet. The US is a hard market to crack – how will you feel if you don’t succeed?
Matt: Do you know what? It would be amazing to crack it but seriously if we didn’t, I’d still think everything else was cool… The US is a hard market to crack – how will you feel if you don’t succeed?
Matt: Do you know what? It would be amazing to crack it but seriously if we didn’t, I’d still think everything else was cool. James: Yeah – we haven’t even been to America yet and we’re having a great time. We’re not just going to go to America then never come back to England because that would be wrong. It would be mean to the fans that started us off in England. We want to make sure that we don’t desert our loyal fans from the beginning. So have you got concrete plans to go there?
Matt: South of Maine, we’re going there to Maine. So we’re doing Japan first then going straight from Japan over to the USA.

Portugal Remembers “Revolution of the Carnations” | Europe…
Deutsche Welle – Apr 25, 2004
Turbulent times

Since the 1950s, a protest movement in Portugal was gathering speed under the guise of cultural activities at universities. By the 1970s, even most of the army was backing the growing movement against the dictatorship. “The military forces were the first to see that the situation was not sustainable,” Cervarllo remembers. In 1974, Portugal was still sending young men to their deaths in Africa, to defend its colonies. Eduardo Meshkeranyez, a senior reporter with Diario de Noticias, one of Portugal’s daily newspapers was conscripted intot the army as an officer straight out of the left wing hotbed of his university. “I joined the army in 1973, in summer, exactly when officers were planning the coup d’etat,” Meshkeranyez says. “I was amazed that even during the training phase of my conscription, officials spoke freely about the things and others could listen and even participate.

Southgate targets Euro 2004
BBC News – Apr 26, 2004
Southgate injured his knee in training and is unlikely to return before the end of the Premiership season. But the defender told the Northern Echo: “I am confident I will be fit in time, it will just be a matter of whether England are ready to take me. “Sven-Goran Eriksson has left the door open by saying he will not announce his squad until the end of the season.

AP, LONDON, MADRID, LISBON,PARIS, AMSTERDAM AND BERLIN
Taipei Times – Apr 26, 2004
Dortmund’s six-match unbeaten streak was ended. Berlin escaped the demotion zone for the first time in months, much to the relief of the German soccer establishment, which doesn’t want to see the country’s biggest city and market without a first division club. Bottom Cologne fell 4-2 to Hamburg, but not before 18-year-old Lukas Podolski made his case for a callup to Euro 2004 with another classy goal. The stocky forward leveled the match at 1-1 in the 44th minute, outracing his defender on the dribble and sending a powerful shot inside the opposite post. That was his sixth goal in 15 Bundesliga matches. This story has been viewed 2622 times.

Tottenham job ‘interests’ Santini
CNN International – Apr 27, 2004
Santini, who had a perfect record steering holders France to the Euro 2004 finals in Portugal starting on June 12, said he would be open to discussion. "If Tottenham contact me and they want to talk then I will listen," Santini was quoted as saying in the London Evening Standard. "I have always thought that one day I might manage abroad and the Tottenham job would interest me if they wanted me to go there. "Spurs have been without a manager since they sacked former midfield favourite Glenn Hoddle in September. Director of football David Pleat has been acting manager since then but the club have said they will unveil a new manager before the start of next season… Director of football David Pleat has been acting manager since then but the club have said they will unveil a new manager before the start of next season. Santini, who steered Olympique Lyon to their first French league title in the 2001-02 season, took charge of France later in 2002 after their World Cup failure under Roger Lemerre. Santini’s contract with the French federation (FFF) ends after the tournament in Portugal and the two parties are not expected to discuss a new deal until after the July 4 final. If Santini did take over at Spurs it would mean that they would join their north London rivals in having a French manager. Arsene Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal since 1996 and has just steered the club to their third premier league title since he moved to Highbury. In contrast, Spurs are only just above the relegation zone after taking just two points from their last seven matches.

Parker gets to the heart of the matter
Telegraph.co.uk – Apr 27, 2004
This DNA debate is not about nationality; it is about a team being forged from one powerful ingredient, whether French or English. These are not cliques but catalysts. Arsenal achieved formidable unity through those who whistle La Marseillaise while they work. Arsene Wenger has mixed in other nationalities, including English defenders in Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole, but Arsenal’s DNA is unmistakeably French… Those who define a team’s image, like Henry and Vieira at Arsenal, rush to take responsibility. Terry, Lampard and Parker are invariably to the fore at Chelsea. Parker has even sacrificed his personal preference for central midfield (and probably his chances of reaching Euro 2004) by helping out “willingly” on the right. With Claude Makelele having upset certain influential individuals within Stamford Bridge, Parker may find himself alongside Lampard in the middle next season, putting the English heart into Chelsea.

Presenter Christian O’Connell said he was very surprised to receive a call on air from Libertines’ Carl Barat – but not as surprised as the singer appeared to be. “Last Thursday (April 22) we were just chatting to a father and son who had sent in a demo when Carl from Libertines called in saying, ‘I’d like to take part, I’d love to do it’,” Christian told NME. “Now you see, rock stars in the morning they’re fragile, it’s like treading on eggshells trying to interview them. Even though he’d called us to say ‘I want to do this’, suddenly halfway though the phone call he said ‘So, what are we doing?’ And I went, ‘Er, the ‘Song For Europe’ – you want to sing on the song, the one we pick to get released!’ And he was like, ‘Oh! Brilliant idea! Yeah, call me after the show that sounds like a brilliant idea!’.

Europe warms to stadia deals
sportbusiness.com – Apr 27, 2004
Sport+Markt was central to the price evaluation of naming rights to the Allianz Arena in Munich, the largest naming rights deal in Europe, and is the only organisation to have developed a price evaluation model for naming rights that has been implemented outside of the US. Said a company spokesman: “The rise in significance of naming rights in Europe is a result of a number of factors. Euro 2004 in Portugal and the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany have seen a number of new stadia built, while in the UK a number of football clubs, such as Arsenal, Liverpool and Cardiff City, are planning new stadia as a means of generating greater revenues. “The circumstances of new stadia are much more favourable for a naming rights sponsor as the competition for attention from a traditionally entrenched previous name is not an obstacle to a successful engagement. Furthermore, the income generated can be directly put to use in the financing of the stadium – a concrete association that can add to a positive image build amongst the fans, who may otherwise resist the commercial elements of the game. “Furthermore, site holders and sponsors are beginning to realise the opportunities that naming rights offer in providing an exclusive platform to guarantee exclusivity in an increasingly saturated market. ” In the UK, one of the most established naming rights sponsor, Reebok, which has sponsored the stadium of Premier League club Bolton Wanderers since 1997, achieved the best recall score among the 600 British football fans aged 15-69 surveyed by Sport+Markt… Said a company spokesman: “The rise in significance of naming rights in Europe is a result of a number of factors.
