Subject: Eleven countries favour China over the US

The State Department acknowledged Thursday that it has a lot of work
to do to overcome negative perceptions about the United States
overseas.

The comment by spokesman Adam Ereli followed release of a poll by the
Pew Research Center that showed 11 of 16 countries surveyed had a
more favourable view of China than the US.

The 11 were Britain, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Russia,
Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Jordan and Indonesia.

"Clearly, with or without this poll we know we have a public
diplomacy challenge, and that challenge is not lessening by the day,"
Ereli said.

He added that the United States is trying to combat the U.S. image
problem, citing the frequent travels of Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice, who was ending a six-day swing through the Middle
East and Europe on Thursday.

"We are getting out there. We are being open and out front about what
we think, what we believe in, what we stand for, and present a case
for our actions and our beliefs," Ereli said.

"We are trying to listen and hear what people think and hear what
people think about us."

Lol, even their closest 'Iraq' allies choosed China :p

Subject: Survey shows Russians think rest of the world hates them

An international survey by the US-based Pew Research Center has shown
that a majority of Russians (57 per cent) feel their country is
generally disliked by the rest of the world, one of the most downbeat
assessments given by the 16 countries asked to rate their own
popularity, beaten only by USA and Turkey, Russian Centre TV said in
its late night news programme on 24 June. The programme focused on
reactions to the results of the survey.

"Why are Russian citizens so certain they are surrounded by
enemies?", presenter Anna Prokhorova asked. A short video montage
showed archive footage of anti-American protests in Russia in which
leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir
Zhirinovskiy was shown burning a dollar bill saying "We don't need
this dirty bit of paper, the dollar" and then proceeding to burn an
American flag. A crowd are shown shouting: "The Yankees are bastards -
get the Yankees out of Russia".

Other results of the survey showed Russians believe the USA is less
of a threat to them than Georgia, while they believe Belarus is
their "best friend", closely followed by Germany. In a vox pop
Russians said they felt Ukraine and the Baltic states hate them. A
video report said that a recent survey by the Russian Yuriy Levada
analytical centre gave a list of countries perceived by Russians as
enemies. In first place was Latvia, voted for by 49 per cent of those
questioned, followed by Lithuania (42 per cent), Georgia (38 per
cent), Estonia (32 per cent) and USA (23 per cent), although the
latter was the most popular choice in Moscow.

It also compared the results of surveys asking the question "Does
Russia have any enemies?" conducted by All-Russia Public Opinion
Research Centre (VTsIOM) in 1985 and 2005. In 1985, its main enemies
were perceived to be the bureaucratic mafia, nationalists, Russian
Nazis and finally the USA. In 2005, the list, in descending order,
reads: Chechen terrorists, NATO, Islamic fundamentalists and
China. "The opinions of experts published on a popular internet site
confirm that the higher the level of hatred, the more close-knit
society feels, so enemies are a useful thing - for political ratings
at least," the correspondent concluded.

Subject: Ceulemans answers Club Brugge call

Jan Ceulemans has been appointed coach of Club Brugge. The former
Belgian international has signed a three-year contract and succeeds
Norwegian Trond Sollied, who led the club to the 2005 title.

Undisclosed fee
Ceulemans arrives from KVC Westerlo, where he was under contract and
with whom Club Brugge have agreed an undisclosed fee for the 48-year-
old's services.

Glittering career
The new man is a familiar face at the Jan Breydelstadion, having
played for Brugge from 1978-92. In that time he won three league
championships and two Belgian Cups, as well as being voted Belgian
Player of the Year in 1981, 1985 and 1986.

National service
Ceulemans is his country's most-capped player with 96 appearances and
23 goals. He was in the Belgium team that finished second at the 1980
European Championship, and fourth at the 1986 World Cup.

Coaching success
He began coaching at KSC Eendracht Aalst in 1992, going on to take
charge of Ingelmunster and then, in 1999, Westerlo where he won the
Belgian Cup in 2001.

Excellent!!! :p

What a great decade for Bruges.
We doubled the stadium capacity, doubled the average attendance and
athmosphere.

Our former club doctor, ex-Belgian FA president and creator of Casa
Hogar in Mexico became our new President.
Now our Best player all times became our new coach.

Time to win the CL ;)

Subject: Mainz face MIKA challenge

The draw has been made for the first qualifying round of the 2005/06
UEFA Cup in Nyon, Switzerland.

Fifty in the hat
There were 50 clubs in the hat for this round, divided into three
geographical seeding groups - Northern, Southern-Mediterranean and
Central-East. Among the fixtures to catch the eye, German side FSV
Mainz 05's reward for qualifying via UEFA's Fair Play rankings is a
tie against FC MIKA of Armenia.

Homework to do
Mainz coach Jürgen Klopp said: "It is obviously hard for us to say
just how good MIKA are because we don't really know anything about
them at the moment. However, as the season in Armenia is currently
running we will get the chance to take a look at them in action."

Fair play route
Norway's Viking FK and Denmark's Esbjerg fB, the two other sides to
reach the competition through the Fair Play route, will face
Portadown FC of Northern Ireland and FC Flora of Estonia respectively.

Big names
The 25 winners of these matches, to be played over two legs on 14 and
28 July, will progress to the second qualifying round where they will
be joined by a further 37 sides including former European Champion
Clubs' Cup winners Crvena Zvezda. This draw will be made in Nyon on
29 July.

Further rounds
The 31 survivors of the second qualifying round will advance to the
first round proper, where 49 other clubs will lie in wait, including
holders CSKA Moskva and the 16 teams eliminated in the third
qualifying round of the Champions League. The first-round winners
will participate in the UEFA Cup group stage. The final of the
2005/06 edition will be held on 10 May next year in Eindhoven.

'Impressive results'
In presenting the draw, Giorgio Marchetti, UEFA's director of
professional football, spoke about the success of the 2004/05
tournament when, for the first time, the UEFA Cup featured a group
stage after the first round and continued with a knockout format from
the last 32 onwards. He said: "The results have been impressive, with
increased fan and media interest, and further recognition of the UEFA
Cup as UEFA's second-most important club competition, after the
Champions League."

Subject: Liverpool handed British derby

Holders Liverpool will face Total Network Solutions of Wales after
the Champions League first qualifying round draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

Special dispensation
The draw came less than a month after Liverpool were crowned European
champions by beating AC Milan on penalties after a 3-3 draw in
Istanbul. The English side were given special dispensation to enter
the competition at this stage, despite finishing fifth in the English
Premiership last season.

Second step
Should they progress against the Welsh champions in next month's two-
legged tie, Liverpool will play either HB Tórshavn of the Faroe
Islands or FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the second qualifying round,
the draw for which was also made today.

'Couldn't be better'
Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry said he was "pleased" to be
taking on TNS "because it's not too far to travel". He added: "It
couldn't be better in that respect - we didn't want to be travelling
to the far reaches of Europe or the borders of Asia, so we've ended
up quite lucky with this one.

'Doing our homework'
"Again, logistically, it could be worse for the second qualifying
round," Parry continued. "We're doing our homework at the moment, the
teams are unknown quantities to us at the minute."

'Absolutely fantastic'
Meanwhile, TNS general manager Ian Williams was understandably
delighted with the draw, saying: "We gave a huge cheer when our name
came out. It'll raise the profile of the club internationally and
nationally, and obviously financially it's going to reward us as
well. When our name came out it was absolutely fantastic.

'Chance of winning'
"Having Liverpool is the glamour of the Champions League - from a
profile point of view, it gives us massive publicity not just for our
club but for Welsh football in general. There's always a chance of
winning - it's two games, 180 minutes, and the nature of the game is
that either side can win."

Lithuanians dreaming
Romualdas Kontrimas, executive director of Lithuanian champions
Kaunas, had one eye on a Liverpool victory to complement a win for
his club against HB Tórshavn, when he said: "A club of such stature
has never travelled to Lithuania before. But in the first round we
face a familiar opponent in HB, who we played in 2003 at the same
stage and won 5-1 against."

Intrigue ahead
Another intriguing tie at the second-round stage is Dynamo Kyiv of
Ukraine against Switzerland's FC Thun. There is also the prospect of
Glentoran of Northern Ireland meeting their counterparts Shelbourne
from the Republic in the previous round.

Final hurdle
The first qualifying round takes place over two legs on 12/13 and
19/20 July, with the second qualifying round following on 26/27 July
and 2/3 August. The draw for the third qualifying round will be made
at 12.00CET in Nyon on 29 July. The final is set for 17 May 2006 at
the Stade de France, Paris.

UEFA Champions League first qualifying round draw
First-leg matches: 12/13 July 2005
Second-leg matches: 19/20 July 2005

******************************************

What a great draw!

A few weeks ago, TNS was offering their CL spot in exchange of a game
against Liverpool. Now they have 2 games plus a possible next round
ticket :p

I am also looking forward to the Irish battle between Glentoran and
Shelbourne :D

In the second round, Belgian vice-chanmpion Anderlecht will face
Neftchi from Azeirbaijan or Hafnarfjördur from Iceland. No problem at
all :p

Subject: Brugge make Dufer signing

Belgian champions Club Brugge have signed Grégory Dufer for an
undisclosed fee from relegated French club SM Caen.

'Not too expensive'
The 23-year-old Belgian international midfielder passed a medical
this afternoon, after which he put pen to paper on a four-year
contract until June 2009. "Dufer is a player with a lot of talent. He
had a difficult season in France, but we have kept on watching him.
In the past he has been too expensive for us, but not any more,"
Brugge technical manager Marc Degryse said.

Goalscoring threat
Injuries limited Dufer's impact at Caen, who were demoted from
France's Ligue 1 in the season just ended. However, he is a
goalscoring midfielder who found the target 21 times for Charleroi SC
between 1999 and 2004, and his new side will enter the Champions
League in the third qualifying round.

*****************************

He could become a very good signing if he manages to win his place in
the starting 11. Maybe he will be better next season when our 35 year
old right winger, Gert Verheyen will probably retire.

Subject: Panathinaikos sign Aloisi

Panathinaikos have signed the Australian footballer John Aloisi
following a short visit of Pana's scouting manager, Spiros
Livathinos, to Spain on Friday.

The 29-year-old striker, who scored four goals for his country in the
Confederations Cup, accepted a million euros per year offer and
signed a 2-year-long contract with the Greek runners-up.

Previously, Aloisi was targeted by his ex-club Portsmouth, whom he
left eight years ago.

Indeed, Portsmouth chairman Milan Mandaric said in an interview on
BBC radio that "John is one of our targets and we're hoping to enter
a serious dialogue with him soon," adding: "I'm very hopeful that he
will be one of our strikers for the coming season."

However, the Australian, who was a free agent having come to the end
of his contract with Spanish outfit Osasuna, decided to move to the
Greek side as he wanted to take part in next season's CL and to face
bigger challenges.

Panathinaikos will be Aloisi's sixth club in his career after
Antwerp, Cremonese, Portsmouth, Coventry and Osasuna.

****************************

That's a very nice move for Aloisi as Pana plays the CL and for the
Greek title every year!

Subject: Spurs accept undisclosed fee to settle Arnesen affair

Tottenham Hotspur have finally accepted a "significant" cash
settlement from Chelsea in return for allowing sporting director
Frank Arnesen to move from White Hart Lane to Stamford Bridge.

Spurs had threatened to report Chelsea to the Premier League for an
illegal approach for Arnesen unless they received a suitable offer by
1200 BST on Friday.

Although that deadline passed without an announcement, Tottenham
finally confirmed that they had reached an agreement "in principle"
with their West London neighbours at 2254 BST on Friday.

The terms of the settlement are confidential and will not be
disclosed, the clubs said. But in Saturday's newspapers the English
press are putting the fee at between £8-10 million.

Chelsea are thought to have been ready to offer defenders Robert Huth
and Glen Johnson as part of a financial package designed to persuade
Spurs not to lodge a formal complaint against them.

However, Spurs were not prepared to take on any players who they felt
did not serve their best interests.

Chairman Daniel Levy insisted that only a "fair settlement" would be
acceptable and it is understood that Chelsea's
eventually "significant" offer met Levy's high expectations.

Arnesen, who was previously with PSV Eindhoven, joined Tottenham in
May 2004, replacing David Pleat as director of football. His brief
was to oversee a new continental-style club management structure with
Jacques Santini coach and Martin Jol his assistant.

But Former French national boss Santini left suddenly less than three
months into the season, with a troubled relationship with Arnesen
cited as the main reason. Jol was then promoted to head coach.

********************************

And so ends the Santini-Arnesen duo, 12 months after starting in
London...

I wonder how much money Spurs got?!?

Inter midfielder Emre Belozoglu has announced that he will complete a
£4 million move to Newcastle.

The Turkish international will sign a £60,000-a-week contract subject
to him passing a medical and obtaining a work permit.

"I'm now a Newcastle player and I believe I'll be a success there," he
said.

"I'm very happy I'm going to a big club which has a great tradition."

A host of English clubs were said to be interested in Emre who
struggled for first-team football at Inter last season.

The talented defender has revealed his "pleasure to play for such a
great club".

The Czech international had been supervised at many occasions by
Alain Roche, the chief recruitor of the French team. He was followed
by several clubs including Shakhtar Donetsk, Fulham and Middlesbrough.

David Rozehnal has been capped 12 times with the Czech selection. He
will play alongside Mario Yepes next season.

PSG have paid 3 millions euros to Club Brugge in order to acquire the
former Sigma Olomouc libero.

He is the third player to join Paris Saint Germain this summer after
Kalou and Landrin.

And we are delighted to get 2-3 million euro for him :p
He is not a bad defender, but he lacks concentration. We have better

Spanish giants Real Madrid are to play a special friendly match in
Budapest on August 14 to raise money for their legendary former striker
Ferenc Puskas, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

The 78-year-old Hungarian star was a member of Madrid's most successful
ever team in the 1950s and 1960s, winning three European Cups, four
league titles and finishing as the leading scorer in the Spanish top
division on four occasions between 1958 and 1967.

Madrid will take on the Puskas All Stars, a team made up of Hungarian
internationals, and former Real Madrid team-mates Alfredo Di Stefano
and Paco Gento will also be present at the Ferenc Puskas stadium in
Budapest.

Subject: All-Brazilian final in prospect

Atletico Paranaense defeated Chivas of Guadalajara 3-0 in the first
leg of the Copa Libertadores semi final played in Curitiba. After Sao
Paulo's 2-0 victory over River Plate, the final is very likely to be
an all-Brazilian affair.

Paranaense coach Antonio Lopes fielded an attacking side in order to
take advantage of the six Chivas regulars missing after being called
up to represent Mexico in the Confederations Cup. This tactic proved
dividends, earning them a huge advantage that should be enough to
guarantee the club a spot in their first ever Copa Libertadores final.

Paranaense opened the scoring with an Aloisio header in the 22nd
minute. They pressed for another goal and just before half time
Fernandinho struck with a free-kick that deflected of a Mexican
player. The Brazilian side completely outplayed their opponents in
the second half and came close to scoring on several occasions.
Finally in the 78th minute Fabricio scored Paranaense's third of the
night with an extraordinary strike from outside the box.

Aloisio, the scorer of the first goal comments on the match:
"We played the way instructed by Lopes. We played with great
character and determination and were able to perform with the huge
support of our fans that were marvellous".

The result indicates that Paranaense are almost certain of a place in
the final, but Aloisio is first concentrating on the return match, he
explains:
"We won 3-0, but nothing is decided yet. We know that the second leg
will be very difficult, but we have an important advantage that
should help us reach the final".

The return match will be played on June 30 in Guadalajara.

Semifinals
Jun 22 & 29: São Paulo FC (Bra) - River Plate (Arg) 2-0 -
[Danilo 77, Rogerio Ceni 89pen]
Jun 23 & 30: Atlético Paranaense (Bra) - Guadalajara (Mex) 3-0 -
[Aloísio 22, Fernandinho 44, Fabricio 78]

Final (Jul 6 & 13)

I am afraid it's all over now as the 'no conceding' plan didn't work

Subject: Rush to play against Liverpool?

Total Network Solutions are aiming to try and pull off one of the biggest shocks of all time when they face Liverpool in the Champions League and to help them out they are trying to tempt an Anfield legend to put his scoring boots on once again. Liverpool legend Ian Rush might be at the age of 43 but as he showed in the Tsunami charity match at Anfield last season he has lost none of his eye for goal and looked really sharp.

TNS managing director Mike Harris is a close friend of Rush and he is hoping to lure him out of retirement for this match.

Harris said: "Ian's a big friend of mine. He opened our 500-seater stand four years ago and helped coach our strikers before we played Manchester City in the UEFA Cup two years ago.

"I'm sure we'll be talking soon and when we do I'll ask him to put his boots back on. The sight of Ian Rush on the bench against his former club would give the side a massive lift."

Meanwhile, speaking before the invitation from Harris to put on his boots once again, Rush welcomed the draw and said it will be a great occasion.

Rush said: "I've helped TNS out by training their strikers and I was a non-executive director at the club for a spell.

"It's a great draw for a club of their size and I wish them well. If you're going to play Liverpool then this is the time to do it. But I don't anticipate too many problems for Liverpool."

It would be very interesting if Ian does indeed play against us.

********************************

Group 1:
Togo managed to get a draw in Senegal meaning that they now have a
very big chance to qualification for the coming WC!! Their remaining
two games are not impossible ones neither. First they have to beat
Liberia at home before winning in Congo.
Senegal can also still loose points as they will probably beat Mali
at home, but can they win in Zambia??

Group 2:
Ghana had a great victory in South Africa meaning that they are the
favourites for qualification now!! No way that they will fail as
they 'only' have to beat Uganda at home and in Cape Verde.
South Africa who will have to hope on those tiny football countries
have a more difficult program left with Burkina faso away and Congo-
Kinshasa at home.

Group 3:
Ivory Coast has beaten Egypt in the group of death, leaving Cameroon
as only challenger left.
Ivory Coast can qualify already during their next home game
against... Cameroon.

Group 4:
Angola achieved the impossible with a draw in Nigeria. Meaning that
Angola remains top of the group and a big qualification chance. Their
remaining games are also not the most difficult ones with Gabon at
home and Rwanda away. Nigeria has a far more difficult program left
with games in Algeria and home against Zimbabwe.

Group 5:
Everything will be decided here during the last game, Tunisia-Morocco.

The WC in Germany welcomes Togo, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Angola and
Tunisia.

Bye bye Senegal, South Africa, Cameroon, Egypt, Nigeria and Morocco :D

Subject: Unofficial World Championship

Zimbabwe managed to keep it's World title several times during these
last few months. They even survived the difficult away game in
Algeria.

Next opponent will be Angola (again..), Zambia or South Africa.
- Angola was the previous world champion.
- Zambia never became world champion, this will be their second
chance after missing the opportunity against Angola less then a year
ago.
- South Africa never became world champion neither. They already
missed the chance on three previous opportunities. The last time was
in 2000 against France.

**********************************

The premis of this list is the same as (the intention of) the world
champion title in boxing. Whoever beats the current world champion
becomes the new world champion. The list begins at the world ever
international match with the assumption that England were the
original holders.
