Alonso the pass master
BBC News – Aug 21, 2004
Since taking over from Gerrard Houllier, Benitez has preached the gospel that future success is dependent on possession and passing. Alonso is a player that can not only pick out a pass, he is also a player who will invariably find his man. So much so that against Norway in a Euro 2004 play-off he made 98 passes. Not that passing and his knack of bringing other players into the game are the only features of the Alonso repertoire – the Basque midfielder is also noted for his ball-winning ability.

New boy finds a niche
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 21, 2004
“In coming weeks, Wright-Phillips may wish he had limited himself to a couple of five-yard passes and shot 30 feet over the crossbar, since he is already being touted as the greatest thing since Wayne Rooney first sliced through an international defence 18 months ago. And he was almost too adventurous to convince the normally over-cautious Eriksson to risk him in Austria and Poland in the opening World Cup 2006 qualifiers early next month. There is also the slightly irritating fact that he plays in the same position as captain David Beckham, who showed improved form against Ukraine, but whose No 7, in any case, as we discovered in Portugal during Euro 2004, has not been programmed into the electronic board denoting substitutes. That may even become a necessity if Gary Neville continues to show signs that he is coming to the end of a distinguished international career. The latter could even be challenged by Glen Johnson, another midweek substitute, if he ever finds his way back into a Chelsea shirt.

WPP’s Sorrell argues the case for Grey Global deal
Guardian Unlimited – Aug 21, 2004
getElementById( ‘frameId630402’ ). 3bn (£710m): “The prices being talked about are about one times revenues, which is historically at the cheap end for these sorts of deals. ” He said concerns over Grey’s margins, which at around 9% are four percent age points below WPP’s, were also overblown. “It depends whether you believe the profit margins can be improved or not. It is a question of whether you believe you can move them to 13% or 14%, where we are… 8% this year, with the goal of 14. 5% in 2005 and 15% in 2006. Sir Martin said the “quadrennial effect” of the US presidential elections, the Olympics and Euro 2004 would stimulate global advertising growth of 3% to 4% this year, slipping back to 2%-3% in 2005.

Petkovic said he decided to end his second spell in charge’for the national team’s sake’.

The club did not disclose the fee but, according to sports newspapers As and Marca, it is between 20 and 22 million euros. ?Real Madrid and Newcastle United have agreed on the transfer of Jonathan Woodgate who passed his medical and will be a Real player for the next four seasons with an option for another year,? the club said. The 24-year-old Woodgate did not play in Euro 2004 in Portugal during the summer because of a serious tear to a thigh muscle at the end of April but clearly Real?s medical staff considered him fit enough to join. Newcastle manager Bobby Robson told Sky Sports TV on Thursday: ?At his best, Woodgate?s the best centre-half in the country. It?s a huge offer, the club had to consider it. ?It?s a huge opportunity for him, to play with the likes of David Beckham, Michael Owen and Luis Figo. Do we deny him that opportunity? There?s a moral issue here.

Chelsea’s perfect start continues
CNN International – Aug 21, 2004

Czech forward Milan Baros, top scorer at Euro 2004, notched his first of the season for Liverpool just after the break and Gerrard drove home the second with 15 minutes left, shortly before City defender Richard Dunne was sent off.

Chelsea discards ideal buys for Bruce
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 21, 2004
Shrewdly, he wants to preserve the team spirit generated last season by easing new signings in gently. That takes the pressure off Melchiot and Gronkjaer, the £2. 2 million winger who was a key figure in Denmark’s run to the quarter-finals in Euro 2004 despite the death of his mother. Against Portsmouth, he played fitfully and was substituted. “What we mustn’t forget is that Jesper is two and a half weeks behind everyone else,” said Bruce. “He had extra time off in the summer and I’m hoping that will be of benefit in the long run. I try and plan not just for today, but for the next 10 weeks… “What we mustn’t forget is that Jesper is two and a half weeks behind everyone else,” said Bruce. “He had extra time off in the summer and I’m hoping that will be of benefit in the long run. I try and plan not just for today, but for the next 10 weeks. “By his own admission Bruce was looking for the crumbs as they started dropping from Roman Abramovich’s table. “Chelsea have catapulted themselves into the league of Arsenal and Manchester United and we have benefited greatly,” he said. “With the signings of Jesper and Mario, we have been helped by Mr Abramovich’s spending, in a daft way. If he had not spent that money, we would not have them.

‘I was shouting at the telly and shaking’
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 21, 2004
You just get short opportunities to prove yourself so it’s nice to get 90 minutes. That, actually, was only my third 90 minutes for England. ‘You would never know, just like you would never know that King was an inexperienced replacement in Portugal who wouldn’t even have made England’s Euro 2004 squad if Jonathan Woodgate had avoided tearing a thigh muscle. Still, football is all about taking your chances and they didn’t come much bigger than the game with Les Bleus. “I found out I was playing a couple of days before,’ he said. “I can’t remember too much about the build-up to be honest but I was obviously nervous, I always am before games, but probably a bit more nervous than usual. It was a great occasion… I spoke to the manager and he said it was my decision. Sometimes there are more important things than football. ‘Too right there are, but it certainly did not feel that way when Darius Vassell’s missed penalty signalled England’s heartbreaking exit. King felt the pain just like everyone else. “I got back from hospital towards the end of the second half. I was at home on my own watching and I was more nervous than I would have been if I was there. I was shouting at the telly, shaking, I couldn’t believe it.

Liverpool exorcise ghosts of the past
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 22, 2004
Second-half goals by Baros and Gerrard ensured a winning start at Anfield for the Spaniard after Nicolas Anelka, one of several Liverpool old boys in Manchester City shirts, had put his side ahead late in the first half. Both clubs began with the same sides who had opened the new season with 1-1 draws, Liverpool at Tottenham and City at home to Fulham. That meant not only home debuts for two of Liverpool’s new signings, Djibril Cisse and Josemi, but a return to Anfield of three former players, Robbie Fowler, David James and Anelka. A fourth, Steve McManaman, was prevented from playing by an ankle injury. However, their arrival cast a shadow over the futures of Didi Hamann and Steve Finnan… Only three minutes into it, Gerrard threaded a short pass through the City defence for Baros to take the ball on and clip it past James with the deadly efficiency that became his hallmark for the Czech Republic during Euro 2004. From then on, Liverpool pounded the visitors’ goal incessantly. James saved desperately with his knees from Gerrard, then more commandingly from Cisse and Baros, before the home side struck again 15 minutes from the end. This time, as James came out to challenge Baros, the ball broke kindly for Gerrard, who swept it into an unguarded net as he followed up from midfield. It was Gerrard, too, who supplied the low through pass that invited Cisse to run clear six minutes from time.

Soccer sensation Rooney admits paying for sex
Independent Online – Aug 22, 2004
Rooney, 18, one of the hottest stars of Euro 2004, admitted paying for sex after the Sunday Mirror’s expose. “Foolish as it now seems I did on occasions visit massage parlours and prostitutes,” the Everton player said in a statement to the paper, whose headline read: “Roo in a vice den”. Rooney said his relationship with prostitutes came when he was “very young and immature” and before he settled down with his fiancee Coleen McLoughlin, also 18… The Everton striker, who is currently not playing due to injury, visited the back-street brothel in Liverpool, north-west England, around 10 times, the Sunday Mirror said. He paid £45 (about R500) for each session of sex, including with a 48-year-old grandmother, dressed in a rubber cat suit. Rooney, said to be worth £30-million on the transfer market after his four-goal haul in Euro 2004, even spent one visit signing autographs in the brothel’s waiting room, the paper said.

Olympics Special
The Local – Aug 20, 2004
And if she was the favourite going into the games, now she might as well just show up for the medal ceremony: her biggest rival, Eunice Barber, will not be competing in the heptathlon due to a recurring hamstring injury. The 21 year old Kl?ft, though, isn’t worried about medals. She says that, although winning is great and she’d be disappointed not to win a medal, this is, after all, just an athletic competition, adding that there are a lot more important things going on in the world and whether or not someone wins at the Olympics isn’t a very big deal. “I am going to go there and have fun. I treat the Olympics like just another competition and if I’m not enjoying myself, I don’t want to be there. ”

This has been Kl?ft’s attitude from the start and although it has endeared her to many around the world, some in Sweden aren’t quite so taken. During competitions, she grimaces, slaps her thighs, paces around with an odd gait before each jump, throw or leap, and this has some Swedes enamoured of jantelagen wondering just who she thinks she is… Another fairly safe medal bet is the women’s football team. They suffered a humiliating 1-0 loss to Japan in their opening match, but Tuesday saw them win against Nigeria, securing a spot in the quarter-finals. In the past year they’ve won Euro 2004 and come in second behind Germany in the World Cup. Pundits have them taking bronze behind the United States and Germany, although after the US fiasco at the World Cup, anything can happen. Pia Hansen in shooting was a big gold medal hope, but she crashed out of her first event on Monday, finishing ninth. Then on Wednesday she blew her second, erm, shot at a medal, confirming gossip that her heart just isn’t in it anymore. Wrestling, while not the most aesthetically pleasing sport ever conceived, is one to keep your eye on.

The week that was….
sportbusiness.com – Aug 20, 2004
Beckham’s leadership of the England team to its customary quarter final penalty shoot-out defeat had set tongues a-wagging about the impact of his commercial commitments on his on-field performance, while much was made of suggestions that the Beckham brand had been damaged by the press coverage of his personal life. Earlier this month the Beckham camp said that it was dealing with the former by scaling down the number of brands Beckham would work for, notably deciding not to renew a number of Asian endorsement deals. There was no suggestion that his overall endorsement income would suffer, simply that less could definitely be more. On Tuesday, Vodafone announced that it was extending its deal with Beckham for a year and that he would continue to star in its advertisements and be the centre of a ‘content suite’ on its Vodafone Live service… Formula One could have a battle on its hands for the hearts and minds of open wheel racing fans. The week saw Sky announce that it will be the UK broadcaster of the new A1 Grand Prix series. This series, which runs throughout the European winter so as not to compete directly with Formula One, is the brainchild of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum al Maktoum and funded from the Middle East. Its appeal lies primarily in the fact that the cars will be mechanically identical Lola models, meaning victory or failure will be determined by the skill and courage of the drivers and not the expertise of designers, engineers and mechanics. Designing, building, maintaining and improving the cars has always been an integral part of F1 and, for petrol heads it is part of the fascination. The Constructors Championship, mopped up by Ferrari last weekend, is a rich prize and fiercely contested. However, the dominance of a single team of late has, in the eyes of some punters, devalued the performance of a man whose record suggests that he is not only the greatest racing driver of all time but the greatest sportsman of all time.

Olympics boosts WPP growth
BBC News – Aug 20, 2004
Pre-tax profits rose 15% to ?176. 3m in the six months to June as turnover rose 13% to ?2bn at constant exchange rates. WPP said growth had been spurred by major events such as The Olympics, Euro 2004 and the US Presidential election. The company said the outlook for 2005 was positive although it said that it
had concerns about medium term prospects for the US economy… US concerns

“2004 has seen a significant improvement in activity particularly when compared to 2001 and 2002,” the company said in a statement. However, it warned about prospects for the US economy after November’s Presidential election. “Whoever is elected will have to deal with a substantial fiscal deficit, a weak dollar and risks of inflation, not aided by high oil and commodity prices. “Higher interest rates may slow the US economy, which continues to be the primary driver of the global economy. ”

But chief executive Sir Martin Sorrell’s comments that the firm is still conducting due diligence regarding a potential offer for Grey Global – the US’s third largest advertising agency left traders unimpressed. Brokers were unimpressed with the firm’s guarded outlook, and predicted WPP shares will underperform in coming months. The comments saw shares in the group slide 11p to 483.

Icelanders too cool for Italy
The Age – Aug 20, 2004
England crushed Ukraine 3-0 in Newcastle with newly united Real Madrid teammates David Beckham and Michael Owen scoring England’s opening two goals. Debutant Shaun Wright-Phillips added the third. The Netherlands, starting life under Marco van Basten, performed creditably against Sweden in Stockholm, leaving with a 2-2 draw, but former European champion France, also beginning a new era with coach Raymond Domenech, did not fare so well, drawing 1-1 with Bosnia in Rennes. There was also a shock for Turkey, World Cup semi-finalist two years ago. The Turks started the season with a shock 2-1 home defeat to lowly ranked Belarus. Greece, which inherited the European title from the French in Portugal last month, drew 0-0 with the Czech Republic in Prague… Ian Goodison’s second-half goal appeared set to lead Jamaica to its first win over the US in 15 attempts, but substitute Brian Ching scored in the 89th minute in the group A semi-final. Luis Figo announced his retirement from international soccer on Wednesday after a 15-year career in which he has won everything there is to win in soccer – except success on the international stage with Portugal at senior level. The 31-year-old came closest last month when Portugal reached the final of Euro 2004, but the host lost to a second-half header from Greece’s Angelos Charisteas, the only goal of the match. Liverpool’s new signing Antonio Nunez has made a terrible start to his English Premier League career after receiving suspected knee ligament damage in his first training session.

Preview: Liverpool v Man City
manchesteronline.co.uk – Aug 21, 2004
The Blues boss will have to do a quick head count this morning in the hope that long-distance travellers Claudio Reyna and Paulo Wanchope returned safely from World Cup qualifying duty. Should American skipper Reyna show any wear and tear following his trip to Jamaica then Joey Barton, once a summer target for Liverpool, will stand by to replace him. “I don’t know whether this is a good time or not to go to Anfield given they have a new manager but what I do know is that two years ago we won there and last season only just lost what was a close match,” he said. “We have always had good games with them since I have been here, be that home or away, and I expect another tomorrow. “I was relatively pleased with the way we played in our first game against Fulham. There wasn’t a poor player on the park for me. Satisfied “Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I’d like to think that I am pretty honest with my own players and I thought everyone played to a decent standard… There were plenty of plusses from the Fulham game. Gone Liverpool will be without their departed striking icon Michael Owen who has joined Real Madrid and Keegan, who knows all about leaving Anfield for foreign pastures while at the height of one’s striking powers, believes it was a transfer from which everyone benefited. “They will miss Michael but for him they can put in Cisse and then there is Baros who was arguably as good a forward at Euro 2004 as there was on show,” added the Blues boss. “I think had Baros not performed like that then Michael Owen might not have gone. “Michael’s departure was a good business decision from Liverpool’s point of view and for Michael it is a great move. He is 24 years old but you feel like he has been around forever. “You have to look at it as a sound move for everybody.

FUTURE SUPERSTARS: The ten best teenagers in the world are
Squarefootball – Aug 22, 2004
8 – Cesc FabergasWhile Arsene Wenger was obviously delighted at Patrick Vieira?s ?decision? to stay on at Highbury his projected move would have been a lot easier for the manager to cope with now that Fabergas has made the breakthrough into the first team squad. Impressed for the club in pre-season and earned a starting berth for the Community Shield against Manchester United which he kept hold of as the Premiership kicked-off. Strong runner with the ball and not afraid to get tackling, the 17-year old Spaniard is well on his way to the big time. 7 – Jefferson FarfanThe Peruvian sensation has just completed a much-heralded move to European football with PSV Eindhoven. The 19-year old did well as his country staged the Copa America and that came after a brilliant season where his 13 goals clinched Alianza Lima the domestic league title. Plays just off the front man for Peru but is equally capable of drifting to the wing. A lot more will be heard about Farfan in the near future… 2 – Wayne RooneyAnyone who hasn?t heard of the Everton youngster must have either been living on the moon or in the States for the last couple of years. A blockbusting goal to halt Arsenal?s unbeaten record (no, the last one) has been followed up by the kind of all-action displays fitting of a football hero. Second in the scoring charts at Euro 2004 and may well have topped it had England progressed and he avoided injury. It?s only a matter of time before he is forced to leave his boyhood club and has the football world at his feet. 1 – Cristiano RonaldoEnglish football was slow to pick up on the genius of the Portuguese wing sensation but a brilliant European Championships coming on the back of a terrific end-of-season for Manchester United has left little doubt as to his superb potential. Can play on either wing, with either foot and terrorises defences and raises fans from their seats. One of the Premiership?s prized possessions.

Think Donald Trump been very, very clear about his view of the Syrian situation, Pence said. there absolute agreement is we have to establish safe zones for people to be able to get out of harm way in Aleppo and if you don back that up with cheap jordans military resources and our allies in the region, then you can really guarantee that people and those 100,000 children are going to be able to get out of harm way.If you want to know the true secret to the success of most elite Madden players, NFL coaches, and college football teams, it’s having a high time of possession. I know this sounds simple, but having a high time of possession requires some skill. For instance, in order to have a high time of possession, you have to milk the clock. And in order to milk the clock, you have to move the ball slowly down the field. For some people, this is easier siad than others. Point is, if you Cheap Oakleys Sale want to win more games, your goal should be to keep the ball out of your opponent’s possession as much as you possibly can. The more you do this, the Replica Oakleys more likely you will be to win.Create a bottom back support by cutting a notch in each end of a board 3/4 inches thick, 3 1/2 wide and 44 inches long. The notches should be 3/4 inches by 2 inches high. Glue and screw the back slats to the back fake oakleys support so that 1 1/2 inches of the slats overlap the back support. Measure 13 1/2 inches to 17 inches from the bottom of the slats and attach the top back support in the same manner. Once the glue is dry, you can cut the top of the slats with a jig saw so that they are curved, or you can leave them as is. If you choose to curve the slats, have the middle of the curve measure 26 inches from the bottom of the slat, and the sides measure 18 inches.CoachesEagles head coach Doug Pederson and Dallas head coach Jason Garrett are both winning with a rookie QB, which is impressive. But neither one is exactly considered a great coach. Pederson literally has no track record and Garrett’s record is spotty at wholesale nfl jerseys best. A lot of that has to do with being considered a puppet for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, but Garrett always seems to be on the hot seat. Eagles defensive coordinator seemed to right the ship last week against the Vikings, but this Cowboys offense is a completely different beast. This will be his biggest test of the season.But the illegal bat went ignored by the referees, and the Seahawks went on to win the game 13 10. People, especially Lions fans, were understandably upset that Wholesale Jerseys the referee had not made the correct call, but the larger issue is once again Wholesale Jerseys the league’s overly complex rules and the impossibility of all refs adequately understanding them.
