!” A suddenly transformed Muentefering warmly embraces Merkel with the words: “But, Angie, why didn’t you say so straight away?!?”

A commentary in the same paper, entitled “A thousand, thousand, thousand thanks”, also pays tribute to Klinsmann, in the context of Merkel’s high-profile presence at Germany’s World Cup games. “It is one of Klinsmann’s most remarkable achievements that now, at the moment of success, he has not sought revenge for the many humiliations he has had to suffer,” it says. “Not once has he spoken of satisfaction, as if this emotion really was alien to him,” it adds. “But Klinsmann has not forgotten who stood by him before. At the victory celebration in Stuttgart he bent down to Angela Merkel and kissed her on both cheeks, saying ‘thank you’. ”

‘Majestic summer’

The paper concludes that the national team can now go off on holiday with the feeling of having experienced a majestic summer, “thanks to Klinsmann”. “It is hard now to imagine that Klinsmann’s team can continue without Klinsmann,” it adds… ”

“And they sat on the trainers’ bench,” it adds, referring in particular to Mr Klinsmann. Even so, the paper still expects a good Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010. “And one will be satisfied if the tournaments are half as good as the World Cup of 2006 – as a peaceful festival which the football has not spoilt,” it concludes. Spain’s El Pais says this year’s World Cup was not spectacular as far as the game was concerned. “It reflected the triumph of conservatism,” the paper says. “Few young players stood out among the veterans.

Round-up: Dowie considers legal options

The charge was levelled at Barton, 24, on Thursday and he originally had until 6pm on Friday to respond. An FA disciplinary commission will hear the case after Merseyside Police decided against taking action over complaints from supporters. But Barton’s club feel he should not be facing any charges at all. Club spokesman Paul Tyrrell said: “It is deeply disappointing that the Football Association have decided to charge Joey Barton with improper conduct. “The player accepts that some elements of his behaviour following the game with Everton were ill advised and he apologises to anybody who may have felt offended. “He has been reminded of his responsibilities as a custodian of this football club but we do not believe his actions warrant any further investigation. “It is our firm opinion that the matter should end there… “Lucas has to think of himself and his family, but we are hoping a good run in Europe and the Premier League will do something to make him think about his future. “Andrew Johnson expects to be fit for Everton’s next match having been forced out of the England squad this week with hamstring trouble. Johnson will miss tomorrow’s Euro 2008 qualifier with Macedonia and the midweek trip to Croatia but hopes to be ready to play at Middlesbrough on Oct 14. He said: “I am gutted about missing out for England; these are important matches. “But the main thing is that I get it right for the next game which is a week on Saturday, and I expect to be available for that one. ” Milan Mandaric has said there is a 50-50 chance of him buying Leicester City. Mandaric, who cut his remaining ties with Portsmouth 10 days ago after selling the club to millionaire Alexandre Gaydamak, is eager to repeat the success he enjoyed at Fratton Park with another club.

Ferdinand relishes his new right to roam

He records how Upton Park’s then manager, Harry Redknapp, talked him up, rather ambitiously, as the “new Bobby Moore” as he settled into defence. Far removed from the chopper-stopper breed of central defenders, Ferdinand is good in possession, and is relishing the freedom movement led by McClaren. “What the manager is trying to get into this squad is to be fluid as a unit attacking and defending,” added Ferdinand, who will be urged to support midfield in the Euro 2008 qualifier against Macedonia at Old Trafford tomorrow. “If we’re going to be successful we need that [fluidity]. See all the best teams – when we played against Portugal you wouldn’t see them in a rigid formation… Far removed from the chopper-stopper breed of central defenders, Ferdinand is good in possession, and is relishing the freedom movement led by McClaren. “What the manager is trying to get into this squad is to be fluid as a unit attacking and defending,” added Ferdinand, who will be urged to support midfield in the Euro 2008 qualifier against Macedonia at Old Trafford tomorrow. “If we’re going to be successful we need that [fluidity].

Klinsmann’s contract with the DFB expired on Sunday and he has yet to commit to extending his stay in charge, despite surpassing expectations by leading Germany to a third place finish at the World Cup. After Germany’s semi-final defeat against eventual World Cup winners Italy in Dortmund, Klinsmann, who lives in California, insisted he wanted to talk to his wife before deciding whether to lead his country’s attempt to qualify for Euro 2008. But Zwanziger told German news agency SID: “We will try very hard to keep Jurgen Klinsmann in his position as coach. “All I can do is to promise the German supporters that the Federation will do everything to keep Klinsmann. ”

Zwanziger insisted he had not given Klinsmann a deadline to settle his future and added: “I do not intend to set up a plan B, it is not necessary yet. “It would be particularly bad to quote other names… But Zwanziger told German news agency SID: “We will try very hard to keep Jurgen Klinsmann in his position as coach. “All I can do is to promise the German supporters that the Federation will do everything to keep Klinsmann. ”

The only name which is important is Jurgen Klinsmann and we have not fixed any deadline for him to decide. com special coverage.

Balls to all that
New Statesman – Jul 10, 2006
He had five and a half years, a very good squad, wasn’t messed around, yet he was a lousy, indecisive, feckless, weak manager. Yet, how we marvelled in September 2001 at the amazing 5-1 win over Germany. We could not believe our eyes as our lads played like angels and goal after goal went in. Now, I think it must have been luck. I can’t remember one other game that made my heart soar. There were moments during this World Cup: Joe Cole’s goal-scoring volley from miles out against Sweden. What else? Becks’s free kick? Jammy and long overdue… So, if we are disappointed and deflated, as I certainly am, we have only ourselves to blame. We led ourselves astray. But we’ll do exactly the same again, in Euro 2008. Wayne will be two years older, and wiser. Lampard and Gerrard will have learned to play together. Theo Walcott will be out of nappies.

Misfiring Ireland feel the heat

Then we’ve got every chance. Yesterday he discovered how time catches up with everyone. “We had young versus old this morning,” he said, “and I was on the old team. ” At least they won. Last October, Ireland came to Nicosia and scraped a 1-0 win to keep alive hopes of qualifying for the World Cup which ultimately were frustrated… That was largely due to the excellence of Shay Given, who included a penalty save in a busy night’s work. He misses tonight’s match, still recovering from surgery for a torn bowel. Ireland’s woes do not end there. The number of players originally selected but now unavailable is almost in double figures. To cap it, manager Steve Staunton will be exiled to the stands, serving a one-match ban imposed by Uefa after he received a red card for kicking a water bottle into orbit in Stuttgart. A Uefa delegate will be charged with ensuring Staunton makes no contact with the team from the moment they arrive at the stadium to the end of the game. Instead, coach Kevin MacDonald will try to gee up the team.

Staunton’s world crumbles
Ireland Online – Jul 10, 2006
Cyprus 5 Republic of Ireland 2Any hope Staunton and Ireland had of qualifying for the Euro 2008 finals has now been shot to pieces after just two games, and in particular on the back of this shambolic showing. Not only did they concede five goals to a Cypriot team ranked 60 places below them in the FIFA world rankings, but to add to their night of unbridled misery, Richard Dunne was dismissed late on. Heaven knows where Staunton goes from here taking into account he was without the likes of Shay Given, Steven Reid, Graham Kavanagh, Stephen Carr and Kevin Doyle, this was a game Ireland should still not have lost by such an embarrassing margin. Serving a one-match touchline ban following his dismissal from the dugout in the 1-0 defeat against Germany in Stuttgart at the start of last month, Staunton must have watched in agony throughout. Mistake followed mistake, with the first in the fifth minute from Liverpool right-back Steve Finnan, who lost the ball midway inside his own half to Michalis Konstantinou… Cyprus 5 Republic of Ireland 2Any hope Staunton and Ireland had of qualifying for the Euro 2008 finals has now been shot to pieces after just two games, and in particular on the back of this shambolic showing.

That allowed the Olympiacos striker a free run on goal, but his flicked effort as Paddy Kenny came out to narrow the angle, was narrowly wide of the left-hand post.

The party’s over as Wags face red card from FA
Guardian Unlimited – Jul 10, 2006
We’ve got a new manager and we are starting our qualifying games in two months’ time. Steve officially starts work on August 1 and is beginning to work on preparing the team for qualification. That’s his priority, not what to do with wives and girlfriends at a tournament in two years time. ” England’s qualification campaign for Euro 2008, which takes place in Austria and Switzerland, starts with a match against Andorra at Old Trafford on September 2.

With such “ambition”, he already blew it because Portugal lost in Poland. Even if Portugal hadn’t lost in Poland, I don’t think that “28 points goal” is correct- I really can’t see Portugal qualifying if we can’t beat the likes of Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan away, for instance. I really don’t care if Portugal qualifies or not… perhaps I would even enjoy it if Portugal misses Euro 2008- that way, maybe Scolari would be fired! Maybe you don’t know, but ever since Scolari arrived to Portugal the first think he started doing was taking positions against FC Porto to please 70% of the country. That way, no matter what he would have the support of the “majority” for the simple fact he often takes positions against FC Porto. He acts as a “big hero”, “Portugal’s best ever coach”, “Portugal can’t live without him”… as if there wasn’t anyone good enough to coach this “team of nobodies”. He forgets he may have been 2nd in Euro 2004 and 4th in the World Cup, but that doesn’t mean another coach wouldn’t have done the same… or even better. So, now, let’s see what the “big hero” really is made of- for the first time he has a though qualifying group, let’s see if he can survive to it.
