noticias.info – May 13, 2005
“Three things are most important in my life – family, religion and football,” said Cha. “Football is my life’s work but when I’ve suffered setbacks in my career, my family and religion have always helped me recover. ”

Not surprisingly, Cha has passed on a love of football to his family. That man Hiddink will be back in Seoul in July for a friendly match between his PSV Eindhoven side and a Korea University XI that Cha has been invited to coach. Old boys Lee Chun-soo (Ulsan), Choi Sung-yong (Suwon) and Park Chu-young (Seoul) will feature in the alumni team as well as former national captain Hong Myung-bo. It is Hiddink versus Cha ? a repeat of France 98, albeit in more relaxed circumstances.

Klinsmann against league expansion
CNN International – May 12, 2005
More important is the question of the quality of the Bundesliga. That’s where we’re losing out," said Klinsmann. Beckenbauer, who heads the 2006 World Cup organising committee, wants Germany to fall in line with other major European leagues. "Of the five big European nations, four have leagues with 20 teams. "We have the most people and allow ourselves the luxury of the smallest league. The country could cope with more football. "The issue has resurfaced with the imminent relegation of Hansa Rostock, the only team from the former communist East Germany left in the Bundesliga… "Of the five big European nations, four have leagues with 20 teams. "We have the most people and allow ourselves the luxury of the smallest league. The country could cope with more football. "The issue has resurfaced with the imminent relegation of Hansa Rostock, the only team from the former communist East Germany left in the Bundesliga. Some leading figures in German football like Stuttgart coach Matthias Sammer, who grew up in the east, say an expanded league may be a way to help some of the eastern clubs. However, FIFA President Sepp Blatter, who wants Europe’s top leagues to scale back to 16 teams, said that Beckenbauer’s comments were unhelpful. "This is counter-productive to the attempt to protect the players by having less football," he said.

Troussier, who appears unlikely to receive a new contract by Marseille after a stormy six-month period in which he has fallen out with a host of players as well as club President Pape Diouf, is being linked with a return to international football in the Japanese press. “I want to coach Japan if they qualify for the 2006 World Cup,” Troussier is quoted as saying to Nikkan Sports daily. The former Nigeria Coach, who was in charge of Japan between 1998 and 2002, went on to criticise the current Coach, Brazil legend Zico. “Zico’s not using enough young players.

Independent Online – May 12, 2005

Real have won their last seven league matches but remain six points adrift of Barcelona with just three games left to play. If the Catalans win their match against Levante on Saturday or match Real’s result at third-placed Sevilla they will claim the league title, while their arch-rivals will complete a second successive season without a major trophy. Zidane, who won the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 European championship with France, retired from international football after Euro 2004 and said he would not reconsider his decision to help his country qualify for the 2006 World Cup. “My decision is irreversible,” he said. “France will qualify. The situation is difficult but I’m sure they will do it. ”

France top their qualification group, but are level on points with Israel and have played a game more than both Ireland and Switzerland who are a point behind them in the standings.

International Herald Tribune – May 12, 2005
The Sea Devils drew 35,000 to their first two home games; the Thunder, with three championships in the past four seasons, now attract more than 15,000 a game to Olympic Stadium. The league's two premier franchises, Frankfurt and Rhein, are the two at the bottom of the standings.

He led the league in catches last year and leads again with 37 for 474 yards despite playing hurt.

Hamburg's big-name quarterback is the Nebraska Heisman winner Eric Crouch, but he is playing safety in an effort to make the Kansas City Chiefs. Frankfurt seems to be a conversion school, with Cliff Washburn (Chicago Bears) moving from defensive end to offensive tackle; J.

Pakr Ji-Sung Emerges as Asia’s Best Player
Seoul Times – The Seoul Times – May 13, 2005
May 13, 2005 &#8212 There is no Asian player making the impact in international football that Park Ji-sung is right now, for there are few games in international football that enjoy a higher profile in the world than the semi-finals of UEFA’s Champions League. However, Park’s performances in the two games with AC Milan merely confirmed what is already known in East Asia and becoming increasingly apparent throughout Europe; that PSV Eindhoven’s energetic midfielder has what it takes to succeed at the highest level. Despite the disappointment the player felt at the Dutch Champions’ cruel exit due to a last minute goal conceded in the Philips Stadion, the more famous half of PSV’s “Taeguk duo,” can, like his reliable team-mate and compatriot Lee Young-pyo, be proud of an excellent season… That country is delighted that Park didn’t have to fall-back on his plan to become a Physical Education teacher if his playing career failed. As they say, ‘those that can, do’ and the Seoul-born player certainly showed that he could with his first professional team, Japan’s Kyoto Purple Sanga.

Dr. Senn was cheap nfl jerseys an army surgeon in the Spanish American War. He probably thought pain was a myth conceived of by wives who can’t take a punch. To him, pain was just your body’s way of telling you there’s room for more air in your ass balloon. Which, medically speaking, was a ludicrous way to treat the war time injuries he was hoping to help. Senn’s colleagues told him inflating his patients full of pressurized, flammable gas to check if they had a hole in their intestines or if their stitches would hold was both impractical, and explosively insane.Hi, I’m Jessica and I’m an artist. And today we’re going to draw a baseball cap. So, we’re going to start with the round part of the cap that comes up, makes a kind of a oval shape, and then goes back down and around. And if you’re looking at the cap from about a three quarter view, it comes up and it has a little bit of a bend here for where the going to go.
