He tried to get me into all sorts of schools like Haberdashers and City of London but I failed the entrance exams for all of them. But Clarke’s suited his slightly more louche priorities down to the ground. “It was the most wonderful place to be educated but not learn anything. The young Michels, however, was not completely without redeeming qualities and while at Hendon he won a student-of-the-year award from Grand Metropolitan. “They didn’t bother to ask me if I had passed my exams and they gave me a job. This Lucky Jim start to life meant he spent the first 15 years of his professional career working his way up in the old leisure conglomerate, a business that had interests ranging from Berni Inns to Watney’s Red Barrel, and reached sales director. At Grand Met he came under the tutelage of the late, great Sir Max Joseph who pioneered a management style his successors described as a “light grip on the throat”… Longer opening hours at the bookies shops have increased costs but not profits. More people have been betting but the nags in the first six months of this year went against Ladbrokes. Last year, the first six months were phenomenally good for bookmakers, in particular the Greek’s triumph at Euro 2004. “If you want to have a good year, have a bad one the year before. That doesn’t always work with the board. The fundamentals are that betting is more popular than it has ever been. With more people spending more money on it, we’ll do better out of it in the long term.

Football scores with advertisers
Czech Business Weekly – Aug 29, 2005
Q: Will you continue in your position after the October elections of Czech football?s executive board? A: It will be an election for all positions, not only president. But if you are interested in Czech football and its financial situation, it?s not about the elections ? the election is only something to talk about for the people in the pubs. The real case is something different. It?s not a problem to get a better picture of football from the business point of view. Q: So right now, is Czech football in a good state?A: Football is the most popular sport in the country, and the current situation is not so bad ? but it?s not about the elections… These are quite nice numbers. And they?re even higher after the national team games in Portugal. But I have to admit that these corruption cases, like it or not, eliminated the growth potential [in advertising revenues] that was expected after the Euro 2004 championship. Q: Which sponsors have changed? The biggest sponsor who left that I am aware of was Volkswagen, which pulled out of the final cup after sponsoring it for nine years. VW said it wouldn?t resume its sponsorship of football till the whole corruption case was closed. A: Volkswagen was the sponsor of the league cup. They just didn?t start [negotiations to renew sponsorship].

So far Klinsmann has capped nine new players since taking charge after the Euro 2004 finals and continues to put the emphasis on youth. But Klinsmann is quick to contest that leaving older players like Hamann off the side should not be counted as strikes against them. “We know what Didi can do, the criticism after the Dutch draw had no influence ” Klinsmann contested. “Last season he was a late starter and went on to win the Champions League… So far Klinsmann has capped nine new players since taking charge after the Euro 2004 finals and continues to put the emphasis on youth.

A spur for England
Sunday Times – The Sunday Times – Aug 28, 2005
Who needs a girlfriend when you’ve got a ball?” Young Jermain Defoe has been seduced to a head-over-heels degree by the beautiful game, and no England player is more determined to make amends for less-than- wonderful Copenhagen when the World Cup qualifying series resumes against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday. The precociously talented Defoe is still only 22, but he was agonisingly close to making Sven-Göran Eriksson’s squads for the past two major tournaments. He was told by David Platt, then one of Eriksson’s aides, that he was on the verge of selection for the 2002 World Cup, and was the unlucky 24th man, jettisoned at the 11th hour, for Euro 2004. “I’m not missing out a third time, no way,” he says with feeling. “It’s something I think about a lot. ” The pain of rejection overrides his take-each-game-as-it-comes indoctrination, and he adds: “This is a massive season. It’s the World Cup next summer and it doesn’t get any bigger… I really feel the need to be there. ” Barring injury or a catastrophic loss of form, he will be. Bookmakers have been taking bets on Defoe, not Michael Owen, partnering Wayne Rooney in England’s first match in Germany next June (despite the Danish debacle, qualification is still regarded as a cinch). The man himself knows to take nothing for granted, and has been working on aspects of his play to make him a suitable foil for Owen as well as Rooney. Conventional wisdom has it that Defoe and Owen are too similar to be effective in harness, but the junior partner begs to differ: “We are similar in that we both like to stay high up the pitch and make runs in behind defenders, but I am trying to develop my game and I worked a lot in pre-season on dropping off and getting more involved in the build-up. It seems to be working and I’ve been involved in nearly all Tottenham’s goals this season.

Whether I like writing, well not really but it has to be done. I figure anything that can answer you and others convincingly is worth it. Sa3so3a – I and Dragonite neither (I think) are branding the ignorant as only those under 18. When I refer to ignorance I am referring to the full age range. See when children say things, it is silly but it is understandable because they are immature and clearly have not been taught what is important in life… If you asked somebody who was the best goalkeeper of the World, they would say “Ricardo!”. If you asked why, they would say “He defender a penalty without his gloves and then scored the winning penalty vs England” (That was the fairytale that the press created after Portugal vs England in Euro 2004). Probably, if you asked somebody who was England’s best player, they would say “Beckham!”. And more than half of those people never heard of Lampard, Ashley Cole.

Reyna, McBride lead English triumphs

The Portuguese international traveled to London on Saturday to have a medical and is expected to discuss personal terms with Everton’s directors at the weekend. Valente, 30, played a leading role in Porto’s Champions League success last year. He also represented his country at Euro 2004. Despite being on Porto’s bench this season and not featuring in Portugal’s last three internationals, he was recalled this week by Portuguese coach Luiz Felipe Scolari for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Luxembourg and Russia.

Spanish sun beginning to shine at last for Woodgate
Irish Independent – Aug 27, 2005
It was only four minutes but that’s a start,” he grins. “The last year has been a complete nightmare,” he adds with a slight grimace. “But now I feel like a footballer again and not someone who just lies on the massage table all day. When I play my first full match I’ll be the happiest man in the world. ” Woodgate’s “nightmare” began back on April 25, 2004, 12 minutes from the end of Newcastle’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea at St James’ Park when he hobbled off the pitch with a thigh injury. The injury meant the England international missed out on Euro 2004 and instead spent the summer receiving specialist treatment in Germany. But his career took a completely unexpected turn in August, when his agents at SFX told him that Real Madrid wanted to sign him… When I play my first full match I’ll be the happiest man in the world. ” Woodgate’s “nightmare” began back on April 25, 2004, 12 minutes from the end of Newcastle’s 2-1 victory over Chelsea at St James’ Park when he hobbled off the pitch with a thigh injury.

Then coach Jose Antonio Camacho was pushing for a defensive recruit after the club failed in its bid to sign Patrick Vieira. Woodgate may have been injured, but the medical reports seemed to suggest he was just weeks away from recovery. But in October, just six days before a specially arranged friendly against a local side, Woodgate broke down again in training as he laid chase to a forward from Real’s youth team.

FOOTBALL EUROPE: Burley declares title ambition
noticias.info – Aug 29, 2005
‘People laughed at us’”At some point we want to feel we can compete against the Old Firm,” he said. “When I said that six weeks ago, people laughed at us, but if we can add one or two more players then, who knows? [Owner Vladimir] Romanov is aware that we want to strengthen our squad and hopefully we can do that over the next few days. However, the lesser-known Czech midfielder Rudolf Sk?cel has caught the imagination of Hearts fans, scoring in all five outings. Sk?cel, 26, is on a year-long loan from Olympique de Marseille and has already indicated he wants to make the move permanent. ‘I’m like a little kid’”I love Hearts and love Edinburgh,” said Sk?cel, who has been included in the latest Czech Republic squad… “When you look at the Old Firm squads now, there’s no comparison,” he said. “We’ve had five games and five wins and you can’t ask for more than that. There’s a long way to go but we’re not kidding ourselves. ”

Tudor Fails To Show Up || Walking Down The Manny Road – Unofficial…
CaleyThistleOnline.com – Aug 29, 2005
“It might be that he thinks we are not quite big enough for him. We would have liked him and have tracked him for a long time” said Bolton manager Sam Allardyce to BBC Sport. Juve had been keen for the Euro 2004 star to go out on loan in a bid to gain regular first team football ahead of next year’s World Cup finals in Germany and had no hesitation in accepting Wanderers request of a year long stint. It seems however as if Tudor has other ideas leaving Bolton once again frustrated in the final days of the transfer window which closes at midnight on Wednesday evening.

The Sydney club has former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke on its books and Hollywood star Anthony LaPaglia on its board, and won two trophies during the preseason. But captain Mark Rudan says his side is not worried about being rated as the team to beat. “There’s pressure there but the pressure is coming from the outside,” he said. “The media and a lot of the players from other respective teams have been saying that, but we don’t put too much pressure on ourselves. We know what we are about, we know that if our preparation is right that we’ll be OK. ”

And Rudan said Sydney was expecting a fiery game against the Victory.
