Subject: United fans give Glazers a rough reception

The Glazer family were forced to leave Old Trafford on Wednesday
night hidden in the back of a van with Manchester United fans
shouting abusing language and threatening violence.

Over 100 Greater Manchester Police officers and their dogs were
required to ensure the safe exit of the Glazers as around 500 United
fans surrounded the stadium.

Chants of "die Glazer die" could be heard on their first visit to Old
Trafford.

The Glazers have met with the Football Association and the Premier
League and given "an unequivocal commitment" to continue the league's
agreement on the collective selling of TV rights.

"There was an open exchange. They detailed their motives and
aspirations for the club and we shared our strategic objectives for
the Premier League," Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore
said. "There is a great deal of common ground between us."

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

Die indeed :)

Subject: Boskamp the new Stoke boss

English Championship side Stoke City have appointed Dutchman Johan
Boskamp as their new manager in succession to Tony Pulis, who was
sacked yesterday for not signing enough foreign players.

Boskamp, 56, was a member of the 1978 Dutch World Cup squad that
reached the final against Argentina. He has extensive coaching
experience.

As well as coaching Belgian sides Anderlecht and Genk, Boskamp has
coached the Georgian national team and worked in the Middle East.

To the surprise of many Stoke fans, Pulis lost his job on Tuesday,
just two months after signing a new two-year deal, ostensibly for
failing to implement the board's transfer strategy of signing more
overseas players.

However, an apparent sub-plot might be the real reason for his
dismissal: Peter Coates was set to launch a takeover bid for the
club, with the condition that Pulis remained in charge.

The Potters' Icelandic owners launched pre-emptive strike by getting
rid of Welshman Pulis, who had performed fairly creditably at the
Britannia Stadium thus far.

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

Boskamp is a very nice man who gives the youth players a good chance.

The former coach was sacked because he didn't signed enough foreign
players?? :D

Subject: No beer? No lunch, says Belgian parliamentarian

A lunch meeting between a leading parliamentarian in Belgium and
counterparts from Iran has been cancelled because the beer-loving
Belgian could not stomach a ban on alcohol.

"Even for the tolerant Herman De Croo, that was a bridge too far," De
Croo, a Dutch-speaking Liberal, told De Standaard daily on Thursday.

De Croo, president of parliament's lower house, had been due to
entertain the speaker and members of the Iranian parliament on Friday
during their visit to Belgium - famous for its diversity of beer brands.

But he said lunch had been cancelled because the Iranians, who as
Muslims do not drink alcohol, wanted their hosts to do the same.

"I did not receive such demands in writing. But ... I was indirectly
asked not to serve alcohol," said De Croo.

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

Hell no :p

A terrorist that was democratically elected by popular vote? We can't
have that, can we? Let us pick one president for them instead. ;)

we needed to send pulis out so we could retain the club in icelandic
owners. it is not just chelsea and manchester that have foreign
owners. and stoke is more important to us than any other team or the
national iceland team
