    • CAS temporarily lifts Queiroz ban, clears him to work before appeal verdict

      The Court of Arbitration for Sport has temporarily lifted a suspension imposed on Carlos Queiroz, clearing the former Portugal coach to work before the outcome of his appeal in an anti-doping case.

      The court says it granted Queiroz's request to freeze a six-month ban imposed by Portugal's anti-doping agency, which ruled this month that he disrupted tests being conducted on his World Cup squad in May before they travelled to South Africa.

      The suspension prevented him from working in Portugal but FIFA did not extend it worldwide.

      Portugal's football federation also gave Queiroz a one-month ban for misconduct, then fired him following poor results.

      CAS says Queiroz's appeal could be heard in mid-November.

    • Fergie: I never called Torres a cheat

      Sir Alex Ferguson insists he did not accuse Fernando Torres of being a cheat after Manchester United's 3-2 victory over Liverpool last weekend.

      Ferguson was aghast to wake up on Monday morning to find coverage of the game, in which Dimitar Berbatov scored his first hat-trick for the club, was dominated by his remarks about Fernando Torres.

      The United boss accused Torres of trying to get John O'Shea sent off as he won the foul for the free-kick from which Steven Gerrard equalised.

      This was interpreted as Ferguson calling the Spain striker 'a cheat' but is a comment the Scot says is not correct.

      "You'd think Berbatov would get the headlines, but it was all me saying Torres was a cheat, which was ridiculous," he said.

      "I thought he made the most of it. That's not to say the guy's a cheat."

      Ferguson's irritation resulted in him cancelling his usual pre-match press conference and instead deciding only to speak with United's in-house TV station and radio rights holders Key103.

But even then, it's also too unfair to him as just like week he was knock-down and the referee took no action and thought he was acting but later we saw he was bleeding from the mouth. If fact, bleeding is rather too weak a word to uesd as we could actually see blood was dripping down from his lips.

      Nani is a small built guy so it's very easy to get push over. There are times he goes down too easy but to be fair, most opponent knows he is the source of danger these days for United. So they won't hesitate to stop him early... Yesterday, during one tackle from Poulsen I honestly felt it was a clear foul but nothing given... Poulsen came in strong and elbow him in the rib area... I guess it was't clearly seen by the referee or the referee thought he was acting?

      I say again, going down easy isn't a good thing but intentionally trying to get or asking for someone to be sent off... is a lot worse.

       

       

       

       

      Well, doesn't rolling around as if he had been shot equate to intentionally trying to get the opposition booked as well?

      He's gonna end up being opposition fan's public enemy no. 1 like Ronaldo soon if he doesn't cut it out. I don't think he needs this play acting in his game la, he's got the skills enough to torment any defence liao.

      PS : Couldn't see the bleeding. Maybe stream too blur. icon_razz.gif

      I remember he got subbed out for cramp though.

      I know it could be due to desperation cos they have just equalised and he sense the opportunity to get back... Lots of other players might have done the same too in that situation... But it was totally different from Nani's...

       

      Nani did it all over the pitch man.

      Remember once against Agger.

      I can't recall if this happened before or after Berbatov's 3rd goal though.

      Vid of Nani's contribution.

      Mancini laughs off Ade 'row'

      Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has laughed off reports of a bust-up with striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

      "We fought in the dressing room for an hour!" joked Mancini after Sunday's 2-0 success at Wigan.

      "I won because I don't have any scars. It was nothing."

    • Cesc Fabregas will have a scan on his injured hamstring on Monday amid fears that he could be out for up to a month.

      Arsenal's run of bad luck on the injury front shows no sign of improving and it would be a massive blow if the Spanish ace were to be out for any length of time.

      Fabregas was substituted in the draw at Sunderland after putting the Gunners ahead with a fluke goal and manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping he does not join the likes of Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie on the sidelines.

    • Mancini paves way for Given to leave City

       

      Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has admitted he is prepared to let goalkeeper Shay Given leave the club in January, though Newcastle United are reportedly preparing to swoop for their former goalkeeper in an emergency loan deal.

      Given revealed on Sunday that he is finding life on the bench "very, very frustrating" and said he is keen to secure a loan move in January.

      And following City's 2-0 win at Wigan, where Given was again an unused substitute, Mancini said that his goalkeeper would be allowed to find a new club.

      Mancini said: ''I have a lot of respect for Shay and I told him the situation before the finish of the [transfer] market, 'Shay, you can choose. I hope that you stay here but I respect your decision and if you want to leave you can.'

      ''He decided to stay here and until January he must stay here. I understand his frustration but I need that Shay stays here and puts in 100%. In January if he decides to leave I respect his decision.''

    • I'm afraid commentators have polluted people's minds with the "last man" theory.

      It wasn't a red because...

      It wasn't an obvious goal scoring opportunity.

      Why the 'last man' does not always see red?

      Referees consider a number of criteria when faced with the question of the denial of an obvious goalscoring opportunity. The law requires the forward to be moving towards the opponents' goal - not just the penalty area - and that is obviously fundamental in our decision-making process. The other criteria are the possibility to control the ball, the position of the attacker, his direction of movement as well as that of the ball, the distance to the goal-line and the position of the defenders and or goalkeeper.

      Therefore, the referee asks himself: "Was the attack very likely to produce a goal had it not been stopped by an offence punishable by a free kick or a penalty kick?" It is vital that we look for the PROBABILITY of a goal and not the POSSIBILITY of a goal. But nowhere in law is the phrase "the last man" mentioned.

    • Mourinho blasts Real bosses

      Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has spoken about his anger at the position his employers Real Madrid have take over his proposed temporary role as Portuguese national manager

      Carlos Queiroz was sacked this month and it was believed that the Portuguese FA asked the successful Portuguese native to take the role on a temporary basis for the next two qualifiers against Denmark on October 8 and away to Iceland four days later while they looked for a full-time appointment.

      But it is believed that Real Madrid blocked the move, a decision Mourinho is unhappy about.

      I don't understand why Real will not let me coach Portugal when I will have almost nothing to do in Madrid," he said after Madrid beat Real Sociedad 2-1 on Saturday night.

      "I will have nine days holiday in Madrid while there are international matches."

      Real's director general Jorge Valdano moved quickly to clarify the club's position.

      "There has not been an official request from Portugal so we have not declared our position," he told reporters.

      "It has been a huge story in the media so the president of the Portuguese federation rang (Real president) Florentino Perez, but this was to say they had dropped the idea.

      "We gave this to mean the issue was over. Mourinho is put out because everyone would like to help their country and this reflects well on him, but there isn't anyone to blame at the club."
