Hill: Hard work name of the game

Are you going to be on the Olympic team to Sydney this year? Which opposing team do you expect to meet in the final?

Hall of shame has new member

RESPITE at last! Seven days passed without a major violent soccer incident forcing the sport to cross over into the news headlines.

After Cantona, the Genoa stabbing and the Dublin ruckus it was starting to become a weekly fix.
