Sportinglife.com – Feb 18, 2007
That would have enabled Kirkland senior to claim his winnings after betting ?100 at odds of 100-1 that his son would play for his country – when he only 11 years old. But Kirkland, now aged 24, has been dogged by a series of injury setbacks – most notably a back problem – and has slipped to fourth in the pecking order at Liverpool. Now he has the chance to resurrect his career on loan at The Hawthorns during the 2005-2006 season which will culminate in the World Cup finals in Germany. Kirkland said: “I hope fate smiles on me a bit kinder from now. I don’t know what I have done in a previous life but it couldn’t have been good. “I think I am due a bit of luck now. I’d get in the Liverpool team and then I’d get struck down with something else… “I’ve got to play games and prove myself all over again. I think I’ve got the right attitude to do that and I’m looking forward to it. “The World Cup is next year but I’ve missed a lot of football. I’ve got to play games and first and foremost I’ve got to get in the team at West Brom first. “Paul Robinson has done well for England and David James was in before that. I’m sure Sven (Goran Eriksson) knows whom he wants and it’s whoever is playing the best at the time. “I’ve spoken to Sven a couple of times.

England head to France next September to defend the Webb Ellis Trophy, rugby union’s golden prize that Martin Johnson held aloft in Sydney three years ago. No country has ever retained the world title, and on current form, England hold little chance of breaking the mould. Their list of defeats since winning the World Cup easily runs into double figures, a demise that can be accurately chronicled through their 2004, 2005 and 2006 RBS 6 Nations Championship results when they failed to challenge for European domination. So while England continue in freefall, who are the likely successors as world champions, assuming they cannot turn around their fortunes?For the overwhelming majority of rugby followers, there is only one realistic winner in France – Graham Henry’s All Blacks. New Zealand have not lifted the World Cup since the inaugural tournament in 1987, but a final repeat of 19 years ago – All Blacks versus France – looks likely. The host country appear most capable of preventing an All Blacks triumph, with Australia possibly best of the rest, while Ireland – rather than England – could spearhead the home nations’ challenge. The 2007 Six Nations will provide a useful form guide, and England should at least be in contention for the title given that three of their games – against Scotland, Italy and France – are at Twickenham… England head to France next September to defend the Webb Ellis Trophy, rugby union’s golden prize that Martin Johnson held aloft in Sydney three years ago.

There are not too many cartwheels at the moment. But a lot of people still believe in us. It sounded a bit like Sven-Goran Eriksson trying to convince the nation that England’s football team were still world-beaters after they had exited the World Cup on penalties against Portugal in the summer. Standing in the Gelsenkirchen arena that evening it was difficult to conceive of a sporting occasion which could match the disappointment of that tournament exit. A team which had departed England accompanied by such hype and expectation had been stripped bare, shown to be sterile, unimaginative and poorly led; a team which talked a good game but never looked like playing one against decent opposition. The more this Ashes twitches towards what appears an inevitable whitewash the more English cricket mirrors English football. And the hardest thing to stomach is the delusion… In less than three days. And that after promising the thousands of travelling supporters, prepared to roar them on despite the Ashes already being lost, pride and passion. Sure, they were up against the best team in the world and let us acknowledge a brilliant bowling performance from Australia’s four front line bowlers, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Stuart Clarke and Brett Lee. But where was the stubborness of a Michael Atherton or a Geoff Boycott or a Graham Gooch, miserly batsmen who in days of yore would no more give away their wicket than buy a round for the 90,000 packed into the MCG?The current England side are bereft of such characters. Australian captain Ricky Ponting put it best: “Every match you play for your country you’ve got to play as if it is your last. Not one English player could say he has done that throughout this series. Not one on form would currently get in to the Australian side.

He said the content would be different from the current football content Celcom offered its 3G users, which provided regular score updates and match highlights.

ITALIAN GIANTS FACE UEFA LOCK-OUT
Sportinglife.com – Feb 18, 2007
As part of the match-fixing scandal, former Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi faces a five-year suspension from any role under the jurisdiction of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), with the same penalty sanctioned for his Juve colleague Antonio Giraudo, Fiorentina owner Diego Della Valle and Lazio president Claudio Lotito. Similar sentences have been recommended by Palazzi for Milan official Leonardo Meani, former FIGC president Franco Carraro and FIGC official Pierluigi Pairetto, who are all alleged to have abused their roles to give the clubs involved advantages in Serie A matches. Palazzi has asked for referee Massimo de Santis, who was initially destined to be Italy’s representative at this summer’s World Cup, to be be banned for five years, with his colleague Gianluca Paparesta suspended for one year for withholding information. The recommendations are all provisional, and the defence have yet to have their say, although a final judgment is expected by July 10. If any of the clubs are found guilty it is almost certain appeals will follow. If Italy are to have a full compliment of four clubs in the Champions League, there is the possibility that beside Inter, Roma, Chievo and Palermo – who finished fifth, seventh and eighth last season – are promoted into the competition… The recommendations are all provisional, and the defence have yet to have their say, although a final judgment is expected by July 10.

First up, if a woman has an especially short menstrual cycle, ovulation can occur before menstruation stops [source: Hirsch]. This is the least likely scenario for cheap oakleys sunglasses a period pregnancy to take place, but a longer period lasting up to seven or eight days combined with a compressed menstrual cycle can add up to an embryo.
