Lee leaves England coaching team
BBC News – Aug 8, 2006

Meanwhile, Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has rejected talk of an international return with England. Scholes, 31, retired from international football after Euro 2004, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family. Scholes spoke to Untied’s official website about reports that he may be asked to make an international return. I don’t know where the story came from. To be honest, I have not even contemplated it,” he said… I don’t know where the story came from. To be honest, I have not even contemplated it,” he said.

It’s been a long time. Yes, a long, weary time. A lot’s happened since last we spoke – or not a lot if you’re a British sports fan. Monty’s the latest one to let the side down and Nick Faldo’s grabbing all the headlines. Yes it’s back to the good old bad days of British sport. I’d quite like to have been out with Faldo, Tiger Woods and Katayama, who doesn’t speak a word of English. I think Katayama will have learnt a few English words by the end of the two days… The same goes for Ibrahimovic. I agree with you there. The only thing of note I remember him doing is scoring that backheeled flick for Sweden against Italy at Euro 2004. He’s like the Swedish John Barnes. One good goal at the Maracana Stadium in Brazil does not a football career make. Anyway, if Liverpool do sign Trezeguet, their fans will be hoping you turn off the TV every time he plays for them. I promise I’ll do that.

Cantona still backs flair to beat the system

Turning serious, he also voiced deep concerns for the sport he once graced, beginning with Otto Rehhagel’s well-drilled Greek team who won Euro 2004. “Greece had a kind of heart and a kind of soul but not the heart and soul I like,” said Cantona. “Their manager is passionate about his [4-5-1] system. I don’t like this kind of system. Brazil have the heart and soul.

Portugal left behind in holiday rush
Telegraph.co.uk – Aug 7, 2006
“But we hope English holidaymakers won’t boycott the Algarve for long. “A spokeswoman for Thomas Cook said its bookings to Portugal had also fallen in the past week, as they did when the same team knocked England out of Euro 2004. In the last World Cup England lost to Brazil, but that did not have a noticeable impact on booking. Brazil is not a major destination for Britons and the Brazilian team was generally respected. “Like most travel companies, we have seen bookings shoot up this week,” said a spokeswoman for Thomas Cook. “But bookings to Portugal are down, as they were when their team beat us last time.

Scholes rubbishes England ‘return’
CNN International – Aug 8, 2006
The 31-year-old quit England following Euro 2004, claiming he wanted to spend more time with his family. "It is nonsense," Scholes told Manchester United’s Web site. "I don’t know where the story came from. To be honest, I have not even contemplated it," added the player who has recovered from a mystery eye complaint which ruled him out for over four months last season. "Media speculation had linked Scholes with a return under new England manager Steve McClaren as they begin their qualifying campaign for the 2008 European Championships… "It is nonsense," Scholes told Manchester United’s Web site.

The news will be greeted with a sigh of relief by Sir Alex Ferguson, who has already suffered one blow on the international front this week. Despite insisting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should remain exclusively focused on his club career, the veteran forward has been called into the Norway squad for this month’s friendly with Brazil. Solskjaeir has recovered from a long-term injury to feature for United in their pre-season campaign.

Despite shedding 1/5 of its market cap overnight, NFLX’s valuation still implies unrealistic profit growth. In order to justify its current valuation of $360/share, NFLX must grow NOPAT by 32% compounded annually for 11 years. Decelerating subscriber growth and rising content costs makes it hard to argue that such an optimistic scenario is possible. Slower growth and increasing pressure on margins look to be the new normal for Netflix.On his knees, his head aching, his body shaking, his stomach churning, Golden Richards, in a cold sweat, would hover in his bathroom over the toilet in desperate search. He had to do something. There were no more painkillers no more Percodan pills in the medicine cabinet or under the bed or in whatever hole he had chosen as the latest hiding place for his drugs.
