Euro 2012 – Ukraine and Poland

Italia daily critical of Poland’s readiness for Euro 2012

Filed under: Poland — Ivan @ 8:03 am

Corriere della Sera claims that EUFA president Michale Platini is concerned at the lack of progress Poland is making in preparation to joint host with Ukraine the Euro 2012 football championships.

On Tuesday, the Italian daily “Corriere della Sera” quotes Ukrainian and Italian representatives saying that Poland is falling behind with preparations for Euro 2012 football championship.

“Corriere della Sera” also cites Antonio Mataresse, the head of Lega Calcio, the organization running the Italian professional football leagues, who said that both Poland and Ukraine might “not make it” with the organization of the championships.

But Mataresse also said that he does not think that Italy, which lost the bid for organizing the championships to Poland and Ukraine, would be able to manage alone.

He is also quoted saying that he recently talked to UEFA president Michale Platini, who he said is “also worried” by the current situation.

In response, head of the Polish Football Association (PZPN) Micha? Listkiewicz said that there is no danger of the organization of Euro 2012 being taken away from Poland, but he stressed that the preparations have to be commenced as soon as possible. “Not after the tournament in Austria and Switzerland, as we planned before, but right away,” he said.


If that’s strike one, then strike two is the financial model that AEG is proposing, in which the corporation not the NFL owner would handle the marketing of the team, relationships with suite and club seat customers, naming rights deals and the like. NFL owners call that “asset stripping,” and it diminishes much of the clout of owning a team. Those owners don’t like giving up that power.Plus, satellite radio isn’t just endless pre programmed songs with no personal touch. Expert (and often celebrity) DJs are at the board, providing interesting information and commentary worth listening to. Satellite radio stations don’t have to be slaves to “research” regarding which songs raise the most revenue. Satellite radio board operators can actually handpick their own selections, choosing from a deep album library across genres. Because of this independence from commercial interests, jocks can enjoy the kind of programming freedom they enjoyed back cheap jerseys china in the 60s and 70s, which focused on finding the coolest songs, for the greatest flow.The solution was simple: Without batting an eyelid, Bayer started selling cheap oakleys the shit out of their flawed medication anyway. They just did it in places where no one could have heard about their little screw up, like Latin America and Asia. The new, safer product was reserved for the United States and Europe. As a result of their antics, it’s estimated that at least 100 people in Taiwan and Hong Kong contracted HIV. We wouldn’t be exactly shocked to find out there were plenty more, considering that the drug was also sold in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, and Argentina for an entire year before someone came to their senses.For the Panthers, who were playing at home in Charlotte, that win was never in doubt. By the end of the first quarter, Carolina had piled on a 17 point lead, cheap nfl jerseys and the team’s turnover happy defense kept feeding quarterback Cam Newton the ball. Newton, for his part, converted those opportunities into four touchdowns two through the air and two rushing scores.The veteran is obviously winding down his NFL career and there are currently no indications the Chargers are willing to trade him, but the Giants have a near desperate need for a quality tight end going into the second half of the season. Gates would be an immediate upgrade through the air and on the ground.But Fulham also have other fans, akin to some of those who used to swell Wimbledon’s gates at Selhurst Park. These are people who now live far from their hometown team, or London based fans of nationally supported clubs such as Liverpool and Manchester United. They are unable, or unwilling, to make the commitment to watch their first love week in, week out, but want to watch top flight football matches like today’s derby match with Chelsea.
