Eriksson: don’t blame Wayne | World Cup 2006 | Guardian Unlimited…
Guardian Unlimited – Jul 3, 2006
Take it easy with Rooney, for your own sake. You need him, so take care of him. You will need him in qualifying for Euro 2008 and you will need him to win it. He is the golden boy of English football. So, please, make it easier for him to come back than it was for Beckham. I have no hard feelings with him. None at all and nor should you… According to Eriksson, Rooney has been unrepentant. There was no admission of guilt and no apology to his team-mates. “He is not that type of person. I spoke to Wayne and his opinion was that it was not intentional. I then went to the referee’s room for a private chat and, when I asked him whether it was a red card, he was 100% sure. I asked him where the player [Carvalho] had been hit and the referee pointed exactly where.

If you know anyone who’s a dab hand with a sewing machine why not consider turning the flags into clothing and shipping them out to developing countries. Bleach flag, convert into cross of St Andrew, get behind Andrew Murray. There isn’t a single French, German, Portuguese or Italian player left in the men’s singles at Wimbledon. So frankly, who cares about the World Cup… Save them for next time. Euro 2008 is in Switzerland and Austria. With David Beckham likely to head off to spend more time with his hair, England might really have a chance of winning. There’s only 705 days to go.

Why not see if you have any Templar fanatics around, or just host a Templar theme party knowing you have perfect tabard costumes. – Greek FA receives FIFA suspension – Jul 3, 2006
CNN International – Jul 3, 2006
"The only way to lift this ban is to change the law. It is as easy and as difficult as that. This is just disastrous," Greece were due to open the new season with a friendly international against England on August 12 — and start their qualifying campaign for the Euro 2008 championship on September 2 away to Moldova. Greece are the European champions but failed to qualify for the World Cup finals.

“I wish to stress that I want to continue to play for England,” he said, “and to help in any way I can. “But Steve McClaren, Eriksson’s assistant and designated successor, may feel that a 31-year-old winger whose effectiveness has been reduced to taking free kicks is now surplus to requirements. McClaren’s first competitive match in charge, a Euro 2008 qualifying match against Andorra, takes place on September 2, the day after Beckham celebrates the 10th anniversary of his first international cap. Beckham had been helpless to intervene on Saturday as the match went all the way through extra time with neither side able to score. As has become their tradition, England lost the shoot-out when Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher saw their attempts saved. Thus did the class of 2006 succeed in emulating England’s ill-fated penalty takers of 1990, 1996, 1998 and 2004. So disappointing was this result that the players who failed from the penalty spot are unlikely to be found accepting invitations to spoof their nightmare moments in jokey TV ads for a pizza chain, as their predecessors did… “Eriksson mounted a brief defence of his salary, which rose from £2m to around £4m a year during his tenure. Had he given England value for money? “I have never understood why you talk about this. I am not the best paid manager in the world. “He had been disappointed to be asked to quit by the Football Association following indiscretions allegedly secured during a sting operation involving the News of the World’s “fake sheikh”. “Nobody knows, even today, what was true in that,” he said. “I know it’s not true. That’s why I sue the newspaper.

Bruckner took over the reins after the Czech Republic failed to qualify for the 2002 World Cup and guided them to the semi-finals of Euro 2006. Ranked second in the world by Fifa, the Czechs were expected to advance from their group but Bruckner blamed a lack of discipline on their early exit. The Czechs’ cause was not helped by injuries to key players, with Jan Koller sidelined after their opening win against the United States and Milan Baros only fit for their last game.

Jol rates Defoe as important as Keane – Jul 3, 2006
Jermain is different – he will always go for goals. I had Mido up front and he was very dangerous at the set pieces, so I needed him. “We talk about the situation but not all the time because if you have to explain these things all the time it can be a bit annoying. I feel for Jermain and that’s what I tell him. There’s no animosity between him and Robbie. They may be angry at times but they never show it. “England are to play a friendly international against Holland on Nov 15… “England are to play a friendly international against Holland on Nov 15. The match will be in Ajax’s Amsterdam Arena and will bring an end to England’s international year.

Estado de Sao Paulo daily reported that “Autuori (will be) coach and Parreira executive coach” in a reshuffle after the five-time world champions’ World Cup quarterfinal exit at the hands of France. The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is set to reserve judgment on who should occupy the hotseat until after the World Cup ends with Parreira, who led the team to the 1994 trophy, having thus far not indicated he intends to stand down.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said by telephone Tuesday: “It’s very disturbing what happened today.

The move reeks of disorganisation at the most important position, with the addition of Mallett appearing to be a last ditched attempt to salvage the season. Back when I wrote that, I felt like I was going out on a limb, maybe being a little provocative. As the survivor of one brain tumor (and, unbeknownst to me at that time, soon to survive No. 2), an advocate for an organization that helps veterans who have brain injuries, and a guardian of a 15 year old who didn’t understand why he should wear a helmet when longboarding (even on main thoroughfares), I was perhaps ahead of the curve in caring about head trauma and also a bit of a worrywart. But the statistics and the studies were there back then, and they were horrifying: 60,000 concussions suffered by high school players each year and Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online numerous pro athletes whose deaths (some of them suicides) were linked to chronic traumatic encephalopathy Cheap Jerseys (CTE).As fue como se decidi enlistarse al grupo de fuerzas especiales de los Rangers en el ejrcito.”Vea su vida como algo mucho Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online ms grande que solo ser un jugador de futbol americano. El deporte era algo de lo que l era, pero no lo era todo.
