Irish Times – Oct 18, 2005
Some 33 months after his glitzy unveiling in Dublin’s Shelbourne hotel, Brian Kerr’s fate as Republic of Ireland senior manager was sealed behind closed doors at the Airport’s Great Southern Hotel. Paul O’Hehir reportsPublic opinion was divided on whether or not the likeable Dubliner should continue in the role, especially as his predecessor, Mick McCarthy, had three qualifying campaigns from which to work. In fairness to Kerr, the 52-year-old only took over the reigns midway through the Euro 2004 qualifying campaign, and it is somewhat unfair to start judging his performances on that campaign. But, nevertheless, the lack-lustre manner in which Ireland scooped just one point from a possible six against Russia and Switzerland in the closing stages of that group, when qualification was still attainable, painted a picture of what was to come. On paper, Kerr boasts a fine record as senior boss – his underage success is untouchable – but although pleasing on the surface, what lies deeper in the folds is not half as boastful as you might expect. In his time in charge, Kerr lost just four of 34 matches, winning 19 and keeping 20 clean sheets… What benefit does McGeady receive from three minutes here and two minutes there in meaningless friendless against ordinary opposition? None, of course. A wave of players should have been blooded over the last two-and-a-half years but they haven’t. These players should boast 9 or 10 caps apiece ahead of the next campaign, but with just a handful of friendlies leading up to the Euro 2008 campaign next September they’re lagging way behind. Where does the blame lie? The FAI this evening decided it was with the manager. random()*10000000000000000;

The USA have qualified for a fifth straight World Cup finals. “They are very good opposition and, although they are from another continent, they are more European in their style of playing,” said Smith. “Their recent record is fantastic and they were unlucky in the last World Cup not to reach the semi-finals. ”

The date had been set aside for a possible World Cup play-off before a Group Five defeat by Belarus saw the Scots eliminated… “Having qualified again for Germany, it shows the pedigree in the team, who are seventh in the Fifa world rankings. ”

The USA have only played on Scottish soil once before, in April 1952, when they were defeated 6-0 at Hampden. Scotland will continue their preparations for the Euro 2008 campaign – the draw for the competition is being held on 27 January – with a home friendly against Switzerland on 1 March. The Swiss, who are joint hosts of the 2008 tournament, last played Scotland at Euro 1996, when an Ally McCoist goal was the difference between the sides. For the USA, playing at Hampden will give them a taste of the conditions and style of play they will face in Germany. USA coach Bruce Arena said: “This is an excellent opportunity to get our group together. “Scotland is traditionally a very solid team and we’re looking forward to it.

“My name has been dragged through the mud unfairly. She came and gave evidence for one day and I was in court for two weeks. It’s not a nice place to be, especially when you’re celebrating your 24th birthday in the dock. I’ve had better birthdays. It’s far too easy for the alleged victim and very difficult for the other party. Once your name’s out that’s it. ” Stack’s only lingering disappointment from the whole affair is the feeling that Arsenal forgot his name far too quickly.

‘Competitiveness’Along with Anna Signeul, the Swedish coach of Scotland, Pauw spent two weeks in England analysing tactics and trends as part of the UEFA technical study group. In her opening address, the Dutchwoman said: “Overall the level of play has improved significantly. Technically and tactically it does not compare to a few years ago and you can hardly believe it is the same sport. The competitiveness of matches highlighted the development; the gap between those teams which reached the semi-finals and those which didn’t has decreased. ”
Excellent reputationPauw is well placed to comment on the giant strides women’s football has taken, having played club football in her homeland and Italy in addition to winning 87 caps for the Netherlands. A move into coaching and administration was an obvious step for this deep-thinking player, and Pauw has since forged an excellent reputation as a coach of both Scotland and the Netherlands and as a member of FIFA’s technical committee. ‘Clear strategy’Pauw identified core areas where the game has moved on since the 2001 UEFA European Women’s Championship in Germany, a tournament won by the host nation and successfully defended this summer.

Media speculationSome have blamed the speculation over Hickersberger’s future for the team’s displays, but captain Steffen Hofmann disagreed, saying: “All the discussions about Hickersberger and his move to the Austria job are no excuse for our bad performances at the moment. We are professionals and we must accept this.

Used on article pages to rotate the images of a story. Chelsea’s dominance of the Premiership is such they did not even have to play yesterday for their grip on power to increase.

Udinese Calcio also suffered defeat, while FC Shalke 04 were held. FC Barcelona 3-0 CA Osasuna
Samuel Eto’o scored twice as Barça swept aside CA Osasuna at the Camp Nou with three second-half goals, to return to winning ways after consecutive draws. The Catalans dominated for much of the first half, but did not break the deadlock until the opening seconds of the second period when Eto’o headed in a Ronaldinho corner. The Cameroonian soon added another before Ludovic Giuly sealed the win from close range nine minutes from time. Giuly started the game alongside Mark van Bommel on the bench as coach Frank Rijkaard sought to rotate his squad. They were soon brought into the action, however, after Juliano Belletti (knee) and Deco (pulled muscle) were forced from the field. The rotation policy also saw Lionel Messi make his first Primera División start and the precocious striker almost marked it with a goal on 25 minutes but his header cannoned off the crossbar.

However, with the Manchester United FC forward’s 20th birthday today, the question is now left open – just who is the best teenaged player on the planet?
Messi attentionThe man that has attracted most attention is not a European, but one very much at home in Spain. Argentinian striker Lionel Messi, born in July 1987, has been at FC Barcelona since he was 13, and last season made his UEFA Champions League debut and struck his first Primera División goal. ‘Already crucial’But that was just warming up. This summer in the Netherlands he led Argentina to the FIFA World Youth Championship title, ending the tournament as top scorer and being named best player.

She believes it can have lasting effects and we all need to watch out for it. Food for thought.Various AFL club bosses and officials watching New England overcome Seattle in last week’s thrilling NFL Super Bowl included chief executives Greg Swann (Brisbane) and David Matthews (Greater Western Sydney) along with a number of key recruiters including the Gold Coast’s Scott Clayton and Collingwood’s Matt Rendell.

Ten feet farther on shore and suddenly they’re 800 pounds of slow moving, useless leather with sharp teeth at one end.

I had ordered some vanilla beans from Madagascar and paid quite a lot for them and they were dry and hard when they arrived. He reminded me how much I had paid for them. They were cheap at this place. He said the cumin cheap jerseys smelled so good and they had plump vanilla beans that you could smell from the sealed bottles.
