Big Phil to quit after Euro 2008
Independent Online – Dec 27, 2006
The 58-year-old – known as “Big Phil” – told the sporting daily Record that it was logical he should finish his term at the helm after Euro 2008 as he felt six years in charge of any team were enough for a coach. His comments may spark interest from Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho as he has said he would like to coach the national side before he retires. “It is logical and only natural that I leave at the end of Euro 2008 when my present contract comes to an end,” said Scolari, who, after winning the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, guided Portugal to the Euro 2004 final and to this year’s World Cup semi-finals – their first in 40 years. “We are already in this time frame, but after that things become more difficult, because they create habits and links with the players which can result in things deteriorating,” explained Scolari, who was awarded the paper’s Portuguese sports personality of the year. Scolari said he was not clear about what he would do after his departure from the Portugal post, but he would probably coach a club… “We are already in this time frame, but after that things become more difficult, because they create habits and links with the players which can result in things deteriorating,” explained Scolari, who was awarded the paper’s Portuguese sports personality of the year.

“They have to make a quick decision,” continued he worried looking coach. “We do not have any more central defenders in the squad. Having lost [William] Gallas and [Robert] Huth in the summer, we do not have enough cover. ”
However, he did a ‘volte face’ following suggestions that he might have to reinforce his defence in January. “We have to survive with the small group of players we have and if we are four points behind Manchester United then that is OK,” he said. “After the hard matches against Fulham and Aston Villa in the Premiership we have 15 days of cup competitions, which are not our priority. “I am not concerned about buying new players in January, only with getting John Terry back as quickly as possible.

Premiership Half-Term Report: ASTON VILLA – Dec 27, 2006
The strain has begun to show in recent weeks, with Villa’s results taking a turn for the worse and the team slipping from top six to 10th. Villa have now lost five games, and are without a win in their last eight; but they’ve drawn half of their League matches – a remarkable ten games. Converting draws into victories will probably require more of a killer instinct in the final third, so it was not surprising to see O’Neill linked with a move for Tottenham’s proven goalscorer Jermain Defoe this week. He is also reported to be considering moves for highly rated West Bromwich Albion skipper and centre-back Curtis Davies, as well as Manchester United defender Phil Bardsley, who is currently on loan at Rangers. The players O’Neill is able to attract to Villa Park in January will probably have a major bearing on whether or not Villa can earn a place in Europe for next season by finishing high enough in this campaign. ASTON VILLA:
Status After 20 Games: 10th, 25 points (13th, 22 points at corresponding stage last season) High Point: Coming from behind to earn a draw at Chelsea at the end of September. Low Point: Losing 1-3 at home to Manchester City.

The 24-year-old R40 million buy from AS Roma is not wanted by coach Fabio Capello ? under whose aegis he played at Roma ? after failing to settle down in the club and after a series of incidents which irritated the team management. ?They have had enough of his mood swings,? said sports paper AS. ?Capello and sports director Pedja Mijatovic want him to leave. ?
Several Italian clubs including Roma, who bought him for R200m shortly after they won the 2001 Scudetto, and AC Milan could be interested in Cassano according to the paper, though, Real Madrid will not let him go for just any price. Also his estimated annual wages of R32m could complicate any eventual transfer… Cassano?s international career has suffered accordingly since he scored on his Italy debut against Poland in November 2003 and played for the Azzurri at the 2004 European championships in Portugal where they went out in the first round group stage. Subsequent to that he was left out by Marcello Lippi because of his expanding waistline and loss of form and not even the move to Real Madrid last January could re-ignite his faint hopes of making the World Cup squad. He has, though, caught the eye of Lippi?s replacement, Roberto Donadoni, having been included in one of his squad?s for two Euro 2008 qualifiers, though he was subsequently dropped from the next two. ?

O’Neill Confirms Defoe Admiration – Dec 27, 2006
“Very evidently and very obviously, he is a good player,” said O’Neill, while refusing to indulge reporters further on Aston Villa’s supposed interest. Meanwhile, Tottenham boss Martin Jol has already made short shrift of the rumours: “I don’t know where the stories are from but I’m sure it’s not [Aston] Villa. “Three weeks ago, Aston Villa were going for Keane. Now it’s Defoe and next week it will be Berbatov as well. ”
Jol also insisted that Defoe – who has already chalked up 12 goals for the season despite spending a lot of time on the bench – was a player too valuable to sell.

It would be good for the fans and everyone. “At the end of the day, everyone wants to play football. If you’re not playing it’s difficult. You want to play and show everybody what you can do. “You want to be a part of it, particularly when the club are going places. You want to contribute and I feel I’m doing that now. “When it’s stop-start and you’re in and out the team it’s difficult to get a rhythm.

Ruggeri Waiting For Vieri – Dec 27, 2006
Our objective should still remain survival in Serie A, if we get more in the end that’s even better. The league is long, sometimes unexpected things can happen if you do well. Football is not math, so it’s better to reach our objective as soon as possible. ”
Then he complimented coach Colantuono who is working very well in Bergamo: “Sure, he is making the team his, creating it to his image. ” And on the return of Bobo Vieri: “In 2007 we wait for the return of Vieri. I am hopeful: if Vieri went to do this operation it means he wants to go back to playing and someone with his past could also have chosen to stay on vacation. No one forced him to come back.

Charlton-Fulham: Pardew Urges Fans To Back Team – Dec 27, 2006

Pardew, 45, added: “I will suggest to the fans that, regardless of performances in the next nine or 10 games, they should just come in and give us everything they have to make it intimidating for the opposition. “They need to do that against Fulham. Even for 30 minutes if we look horrible and are not getting it together, I want them to give us the benefit of the doubt. ”
Alrhough the Charlton players have been criticised for showing too little passion for the club in its predicament, Pardew will reserve judgement. “I can only be critical of them once they are under me,” he said. “They have to appreciate that I am the third manager this season and we don’t want it to be any more. “They need to enthuse themselves and get on track. – Football Europe – News & Features – News Specific – Dec 27, 2006
He broke into the first team last season and is now a regular, playing a leading role in Feyenoord’s UEFA Cup campaign.

Depending on the nature of the enzymes bound, lncRNA mediated chromatin modifications can activate or repress gene expression22, 23, 26, 27, 120. Chromatin modifying complexes bound to the RNA polymerase II (Pol II) carboxy terminal domain (CTD) can modify chromatin during transcription of lncRNAs33, 34, 35 (part b). Transcription of lncRNAs can also result in chromatin remodelling that can either favour or inhibit the binding of regulatory factors (part c). Depending on the nature of the factors that bind during remodelling, gene expression is activated or repressed37, 38, 39, 40. d lncRNAs can modulate both the general transcription machinery (parts d and e) as well as specific regulatory factors (parts f and g). lncRNAs can bind Pol II directly to inhibit transcription47 (part d). Formation of lncRNA triplex structures can also inhibit the assembly of the pre initiation complex48 (part e). lncRNAs can fold into structures that mimic DNA binding sites (left) or that generally inhibit or enhance the activity of specific transcription factors (right)50, 51, 52, 53 (part f). lncRNAs can also regulate gene expression by binding specific transport factors to inhibit the nuclear localization of specific transcription factors54 (part g).
