It might not be stuff of champions, but Strasbourg continue their mid-season run of good of form. The Alsatians have lost only two of their last seven games (against half of the top-four at present), a run that has seen them win three straight at La Meinau, which is where they play next, against third-placed Sochaux on December 4.

Despite Sunday's excellent draw at high-flying Lille, Strasbourg slipped to third-bottom of the First Division with 15 points. At this point last term, they were having a marginally better season under the recently-departed Antoine Kombouare. They sat in 11th place, with five wins under their belt and a +2 goal difference.

They've had decent crowds at La Meinau. Nothing close to the 29,000 capacity, mind you, but admirable enough given their league position. Though it isn't possible to itemise the affiliations, 90,000 people have passed through the turnstiles over the seven home games - an average of 13,000 per game. The November 6 victory over Bordeaux drew a season-high 16,000.

I think that's enough stats for six o'clock in the morning.

Dugueperoux Prepared For Battle

Strasbourg coach Jacky Dugueperoux is counting on his side's defence and combative spirit to see off third-placed Auxerre this weekend.

The Alsatian side lost 2-0 to Marseille last weekend and lie third from bottom of Ligue 1 with just 11 points from 14 games.

"We must win at home and take points in our away games, otherwise we will keep yo-yoing between relegation and safety as we've done in the past few weeks," said Dugueperoux.

"Despite the recent defeats we were quite solid in Lyon (1-0 defeat on October 30) and really competed against Marseille, which is reassuring.

"But we are yet to be good in all areas of the game at the same time. We have always missed out on something and we must correct that."

Auxerre will be a tough test for Strasbourg as Guy Roux's outfit are flying high and head to Strasbourg on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run.

But Dugueperoux is hoping his side can continue to show the positives that were on display in their defeat at Marseille.

"In the match against Marseille we showed that we could play and created a lot of opportunities at the Velodrome, we must do it against Auxerre," he added.

Dugueperoux will welcome back all of his internationals after the midweek friendlies, including Senegal's Mamadou Niang, Morrocco's Yacine Abdessadki, Algeria's Salim Arrache, and Sweden's Alexander Farnerud.

Auxerre will be without Ivory Coast international Bonaventure Kalou, who has suffered from a thigh compliant since last weekend and will be out of action for two weeks.

Finland international Teemu Tainio has shaken off his groin problems, and is back in action as well as defender Jean-Sebastien Jaures who returns from a fractured foot.

The Scottish FA has begun interviewing candidates for a new national manager. At present, it seems to be a duel between Gordon Strachan and ex-Rangers manager Walter Smith to fill the gap left by Berti Vogts' departure.

My vote would go to Walter Smith, though I'm sure he'd much prefer to be in club management than be in charge of a national team.

Whoever takes over will know they have a job on their hands. In the latest FIFA world rankings, the Scots fell nine places to 77th, putting them below the likes of Estonia, Ghana, Angola and Thailand, and level with Congo.

The Top 20Collapse )


And Dennis Bergkamp may play one more season. This pleases me.

WC 2006 - UEFA, Group 2 [17 Nov 2004|02:52pm]
So, which result would you consider to be more impressive:

Turkey 0-3 Ukraine
Georgia 2-2 Denmark

In either case, the new standings have Turkey first with 5 points [+4], Ukraine second with 5 points [+1], Denmark third with 4 points [+2], and Georgia fourth with 4 points [also +2]. Sure, it's not as tight as Group 4 -- where Switzerland, Israel, Ireland, and France all have five points -- but it's great to see how competitive this group is turning out to be.

Now, if only Ukraine can avoid suffering yet another play-off defeat ....

hey everyone i have some news, the owner of BskyB just bought up directv. so you what that could mean? skysports might hit the u.s. Since sky has all the rights to the english premier league we could finally have more than just one or two games a week but i doubt they would bring skysports to the u.s. because we dont have a market here for football (soccer), so lets take action. i sent emails to directv.com and sky.com begging for them to think about bringing skysports to the u.s. please everyone please me out by emailing them here are the links

(hit the "feedback" link)

please help me out everyone

this was my email in case you dnot know what to say this is what i said but dont use it word for word they might think all the emails are from only me

Hi I recently read that Rupert Murdoch has taken control of directv. I was wondering since Rupert Murdoch has also owns BskyB, does that mean skysports is coming to the U.S. because I am a big soccer fan and alway dreamed of having skysports but can not since I live in the U.S. and if skysports is not coming to the states can you make a suggestion please. I know I am just one person and having the skysports channel sent to the U.S. is very costly but I can assure you their is a lot of die hard soccer fans here in the U.S. and I think having skysports would take thousands of customers away from comcast cable. I know there is a big market for skysports in the U.S. and alot of profits to be made here. Thanks for your time please I beg of you please take this into serious consideration please bring skysports and its english premier league football to the Television screens of Americans.

Latest News... [28 Jun 2001|02:27pm]
MANCHESTER UNITED have been warned by Lazio that there will be no cut-price deal for Juan Veron. United have resumed transfer talks for Veron after he was cleared by the Italian FA of illegally obtaining a European Union passport.

There is a slight chance that Veron could yet face criminal charges and the police are investigating the entire passport scandal which has rocked Italian football. However Lazio president Sergio Cragnotti insists the price for Veron remains set at 75 billion lira, which is �23.5m. This would smash the British record transfer fee of �19m which United have agreed to pay PSV Eindhoven for Ruud van Nistelrooy.

THE Copa America has been suspended until kidnapped tournament co-ordinator Hernan Campuzano is released from captivity.

Nicholas Delfino, president of the Peruvian Football Association, revealed the tournament will only go ahead if Campuzano, who was abducted on Monday near the town of Pereira in Colombia where the Copa is due to kick off on July 11, is freed. He said: "The opinion of the South America Football Confederation (CSF) is to suspend the championship in Colombia until they free the director who at this moment is kidnapped. We cannot go to a place where the vice-president of the Federation has been kidnapped."

LAZIO president Sergio Cragnotti has confirmed that the club are to make a move for Rivaldo. The Barcelona playmaker has previously stated he will see out his current contract in Spain, which still has one year to run.

It is also likely, though, that former World Footballer of the Year would be tempted to end his spell at the Nou Camp early.

Cragnotti said: "We have wanted Rivaldo for a long time and we hope that this time we will be successful."

RUSSELL LATAPY claims he will become a Rangers player before the start of the new season. The 32-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international was thought to be joining Celtic on a free transfer but now says he expects to complete a move to their Old Firm rivals.

He said: ''I'm looking forward to the new season and getting the chance to play in the Champions League. That was an important factor in my decision but my personal goal will be to help Rangers win the domestic title.''
