BBC News – Oct 20, 2004
There have been reports that a specially-convened meeting will discuss the German’s future on Friday. But press officer Andy Mitchell says there are no plans to meet specifically to remove Vogts from his post. It is widely expected that Vogts will leave his post after three World Cup qualifiers without a win. Commitments in European competition for some SFA board members delayed a crisis meeting… “I don’t know if Berti has support among the board. That’s why we need an exchange of opinions. “We have undoubtedly fallen behind to qualify for the World Cup, but we’re not out of it yet. “I understand a few of the Tartan Army are concerned about the situation and believe we should change the manager. ”

BBC Sport also believes that Taylor will retain the support of his board if he acts quickly to dismiss Vogts.

ESPN.com – Oreovicz: Aussie rules racing!
ESPN – Oct 21, 2004
The Champ Cars share the Gold Coast bill with the domestic V8 Supercar series, which must be the most successful sedan racing series in the world other than NASCAR’s ubiquitous Nextel Cup. The V8 Supercar formula was devised in the early ’90s when Australia’s top form of racing was run to International Group A rules and dominated by foreign machinery like Nissan Skylines. The category was created to reduce costs and restore the traditional Australian rivalry of Ford versus Holden (General Motors’ successful Australian division). The cars are an intriguing mixture of low- and high-tech — just the right balance, in my opinion.

BBC SPORT | Football | African | Fifa delegation to visit Kenya
BBC News – Oct 21, 2004
The announcement of the visit comes amid a simmering row between the Normalisation Committee and the Harambee Stars Management Board over the appointment of a new coach. On Tuesday, the committee appointed Twahir Muhiddin as the temporary national team coach until 31 December. This period includes the 2006 World Cup qualifier against Guinea in Nairobi on 17 November. Yet the Management Board says that since it pays the coach’s wages, it should choose the Harambee Stars’ new boss. On Tuesday, Harambee Stars Management Board secretary-general Patrick Nagi said his body would not pay any coach appointed by the Normalisation Committee. Meanwhile, Fifa has told BBC Sport that the committee does have the power to chose the next Kenya coach. The row escalated on Thursday when the two parties traded accusations at a press conference called by Sports Minister Achilo Ayacko.

Koepke new goalkeeping coach
Calcutta Telegraph – Oct 22, 2004
1 still rumbling on. The 42-year-old, who was in goal when Germany won the 1996 European Championships, has signed a contract with the German football association (DFB) until the 2006 World Cup, which Germany is hosting. ?The 2006 project is a great challenge and I am as optimistic as my colleagues about it,? said Koepke, who played 59 times for Germany. Koepke?s first task will be to seek an end to tensions between rival goalkeepers Oliver Kahn and Jens Lehmann.

Zico aide sent off
Calcutta Telegraph – Oct 22, 2004
The excitable Kunihiro Suzuki has been given a one-match ban by world soccer?s governing body Fifa after he was ordered from the bench for verbally abusing the match officials during Japan?s 1-0 win. Zico was also lucky to escape a sending-off as tempers flared on the bench in the second half of a physical game in Muscat.

BBC News – Oct 22, 2004
But Carling told BBC Sport: “I don’t think his career will now be over. “I’d like to think that once back in an England shirt he’ll have another long period without any breaks. ”

After England’s World Cup win in 2003, Wilkinson underwent surgery for career-threatening neck and shoulder problems, but his comeback has been blighted by a series of arm injuries. But Carling believes the haematoma in Wilkinson’s upper right arm is completely unrelated to the 25-year-old’s previous problems. “I’d like to think that, if it was the same injury, they would be talking about it,” said Carling. “It’s a different injury and it’s always very difficult to come back after so long.

Australia’s new league stays under wraps
abc.net.au – Oct 21, 2004
Striker Viduka reportedly earned $115,000 a week at Leeds before his move to Middlesbrough in July. Financial dramas

Despite being a sports-mad country, Australia prefers the two rugby codes and Australian Rules to soccer, the most popular football code elsewhere in the world. The Socceroos have not qualified for the World Cup since 1974, though they are in the final phase of the Oceania qualifiers for the 2006 finals. Years of factional in-fighting and associated financial dramas in Australian soccer prompted the Federal Government to hold an inquiry last year which recommended that the national governing body’s entire board of directors should quit. The board was dissolved and the new Australian Soccer Association (ASA) was formed under the chairmanship of one of Australia’s richest men, Frank Lowy. He picked John O’Neill, the former boss of the Australian Rugby Union, to be the ASA chief executive and the association set about creating a new league with eight instead of 13 teams. The teams are expected to come from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Newcastle, the New South Wales central coast and Auckland.
