Wenger figures out that money is key to retaining good players.

The Guardian: Arsène Wenger admits 'half the Arsenal dressing room wanted to leave'

Quote :
"No, it's not that [players have to leave to win titles]," said Wenger
on the French radio station RTL. "The problem isn't that. Frankly, if
you compare what Manchester City have won in the past and what Arsenal
have won, then you don't go to Manchester City to win titles. Players go
to Manchester City because they pay much better than Arsenal.

Cosmos rebirth runs into trouble

Quote :
It hardly comes as a surprise that the so-called New Cosmos group is in
turmoil. The high-flying Paul Kemsley, the hyper-Brit who has been
telling everyone that the rebirth of the New York Cosmos which he was
supposed to be engineering “is going to be huge.”

Now
Kemsley has suffered a huge come-down, the fate of the classical
high-flier Icarus, who flew too close to the sun, melted his wings and
ended up plummeting into the sea.

The people who have been
financing this strange venture -- they are, I believe, from Saudi Arabia
-- have had enough of Kemsley’s extravaganzas and extravagances. To
take the most obvious examples -- a huge billboard in Times Square,
visible for a few days, and immediately forgotten; the signing of Eric
Cantona as the club’s Director of Soccer -- someone with no connection
whatever with the Cosmos and, anyway, not exactly a big deal in New
York; to which was added the decidedly bizarre appointment of Cobi Jones
as Cantona’s associate director; and the farcical appearance of a
“Cosmos” team to play in Paul Scholes’s testimonial game in Manchester
-- a team made up mostly of one-time guest players.

English FA to replace medal Peter Reid sold to keep team afloat

Quote :
The English Football Association will replace the FA Cup medal
former England midfielder Peter Reid auctioned off to help pay the wages at a
cash-strapped club he managed.

Despite Reid selling the treasured medal and helping to pay a heating bill
at Plymouth out of his own pocket, Reid was fired last month as manager of the
bottom club in the fourth tier of English football.

I agree with him that we need to have more lenant rules on Red card for pk's. Half the time refs already just give a yellow and you more or less get your head chopped off when you follow the Laws of the game. Offsides really isnt that hard it just leaves room for the AR to make a decision which at the lower levels of refing is not a good idea, but i think at the World Cup/EPL level its fine

Alex Ferguson's Old Trafford tickets found with scalpers

Quote :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]A total of 16 tickets printed with Sir Alex’s name were
uncovered after a covert police operation into illegal activities on
match days close to the Theatre of Dreams. It is understood Manchester
United launched a top secret internal investigation after police told
them of their findings. Sir Alex was interviewed by club bosses as part
of the probe. He said he had given the tickets to acquaintances and had
no knowledge of the illegal operation. The club confirmed the tickets
were legitimate and had originally been allocated to Sir Alex.

Ferguson reflects on 'fairytale' Manchester United reign

Quote :
On Thursday the 69-year-old did allow himself the briefest of
reflections on a career that has brought him glory way beyond what
anyone could have imagined when he succeeded Ron Atkinson on 6 November
1986.

Since then, Ferguson has lifted 27 trophies and overseen the rise of numerous world-class players.

Soccer career of Gadhafi’s son Al-Saadi over

Quote :
As Gadhafi’s long and brutal regime came crashing down and his life was
brought to a violent end, a former professional soccer player in one of
the world’s top leagues suddenly became one of the most wanted men on
the planet.

The man in question is Gadhafi’s third son, Al-Saadi, who used his
father’s political influence to gain contracts at three teams in Italy’s
Serie A – Perugia, Udinese and Sampdoria – while also training with
Lazio and Juventus.

North Carolina's womens soccer "woes"

Quote :
For North Carolina faithful, the positive side to the Tar Heels' 1-0
loss to Florida State in the ACC quarterfinals -- its first loss ever in
the ACC championship and third straight defeat, another first -- is
that they got an extra week to prepare for the NCAA Tournament, which
begins Saturday against William & Mary.

“We’ve never had this opportunity to train for an extended period before the NCAA tournament,” UNC coach Anson Dorrance told the Daily Tar Heel. “So it’s allowed us to get a bit healthier and a bit fitter.”

Injuries have hurt Carolina, especially in the back, where Dorrance has been starting two walk-ons, Megan Brickman and Caitlin Ball.

Japan national team get Kim Jong Il'ed at North Korean airport

Quote :
Dour local officials warned
players when they laughed, and confiscated items including bananas,
chewing gum, and instant noodles, the Nikkan Sports and Sports Nippon
newspapers reported.

The airport experienced three power outages during the lengthy process.

The team began their official practice around 8:00 pm—three hours
later than intended—wearing hats and gloves in a bitterly cold Kim Il
Sung Stadium, reports said.

The communist regime is widely despised in Japan, where feelings run
high over the unresolved abductions in the 1970s and 80s of young
Japanese citizens who were used to train Pyongyang's spies in Japanese
language and customs.

Capello pours cold water on Beckham return to England squad

When asked here on Monday if Beckham had any chance of making

For American Samoa, a Win Ignites a World Cup Dream

Quote :
American Samoa had played 30 men’s soccer matches since starting
international play in 1994. It had lost all 30, by a combined score of
229-12, and was tied for last in the FIFA world rankings.

On Tuesday, the tiny, unincorporated island territory in the South Pacific finally broke through, defeating Tonga, 2-1, in a prequalifying match for the 2014 World Cup.

The American Samoa defense was bolstered by Johnny Saelua, who is
believed to be the first transgender athlete to compete in a World Cup
qualifying match. Saelua is part of the fa’afafine, biological males who identify as a third sex that is widely accepted in Polynesian culture.
