“There is no risk to public health.”

British police are in Moscow investigating Litvinenko’s death in a case that has strained ties between both countries since the exiled former spy on his death bed accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of ordering his assassination.

Litvinenko died in a London hospital on November 23 from a lethal dose of polonium 210 after falling ill on Nov 1.

One of the men British police want to question in Russia is Andrei Lugovoy who travelled to London on October 31 with his wife and three children to watch CSKA Moscow play Arsenal in a Champions League game on November 1.

He met Litvinenko at a London hotel earlier the same day.

.

LONDON Investigators have found minute traces of polonium 210, the radioactive isotope that killed former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, at Arsenal’s Emirates stadium, a public health spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

“Minute quantities (of polonium) were found at barely detectable levels at localised areas,” said Health Protection Agency spokeswoman Katherine Lewis

Paul, who plays Birmingham’s Symphony Hall tonight, has lived in Canada for nine years.

Then in 2005 he was asked to join Brian May and Roger Taylor to tour as Queen + Paul Rodgers.

“Well, I’m working on a solo album but if Brian and Roger want to do something, I’m open to anything.”

“I’ve just become a grandfather – my daughter Natalie had a son, Sonny, which I think is a great blues name. For a second it made me feel old.”

“It was a case of paying homage to Freddie Mercury, I was never trying to be him.”

Not that Paul looks his age. . I’ve written a new song and I’ll be trying things out as I go along.”

“The Queen fans were absolutely wonderful,” Paul admits. ”We had some heart-wrenching e-mails of appreciation.

Solo success followed, as well as Bad Company tours featuring two different line-ups.

Paul first shot to fame in 1970 with Free and their massive hit All Right Now.

“I met a wonderful Canadian lady, Cynthia, and just stayed over here,” he reveals. I’ll be taking them on a musical journey. “It was fan persuasion that led to this tour. “I’m in the process of buying a ranch where I plan to grow organic produce but I love going home to England because I still have strong family links there.

AFTER touring with Bad Company and Queen in recent years legendary rock frontman Paul Rodgers is performing a solo set – by public demand.

“Thanks to the internet fans can now contact me directly and I had a lot of feedback asking ‘What about some solo songs?’,” explains the 56-year-old Middlesbrough-born singer from his home in British Columbia.

Liverpool, Norwich City, Aston Villa and the worst teams to reach and win major finals

Defeat to Russia was compensated by qualification for the last eight, in which Greece managed to defeat the defending champions and tournament favourites in a shock 1-0 win. In the semis Leeds faced regular season champions Warrington, who had finished 13 points clear of them, but were powerless to stop the Rhinos edging a tight clash 26-24. They only qualified for the tournament after finishing fourth in the Premier League the previous season, 30 points behind champions Arsenal and 15 behind third-placed Man United (by contrast, Liverpool were 15 points above 14th place). Villa had edged past Icelandic minnows Valur in the first round, then Eastern European opposition Dynamo Berlin on away goals, before knocking out Dynamo Kiev and squeaking past Anderlecht in the semi final with a single strike from Tony Morley early in the first leg. In the final Rafa Benitez’s team were taken apart by AC Milan, trailing 3-0 at half-time, before pulling off one of the all-time great comebacks, scoring three in just six second half minutes. The only thing they were favourites for was to finish bottom of a tough group containing hosts Portugal, Spain (ranked third in the world) and Russia (two places above Greece at 31). In doing so, Villa became the worst team to win a European Cup when taking into account where they finished domestically, having ended that year’s First Division season in 11th place, having lost as many games (15) as they won. Like the previous three meetings, Leeds emerged triumphant, while the two best teams from the regular season, Warrington and Wigan, could only look on in envy.

LEEDS RHINOS, 2011 SUPER LEAGUE WINNERS

Despite winning one of the most dramatic finals in football history, Liverpool were arguably the worst team to be crowned European champions. Having surprised everyone by winning the First Division title in 1981, Aston Villa won the European Cup at the first attempt, sneaking past favourites Bayern Munich in the final. Under the management of German Otto Rehhagel, the Greek’s dour defensive tactics were enough to see off Czech Republic en route to a final rematch with hosts Portugal. In 1969, Arsenal had gone 16 years without winning a trophy and were even bigger favourites to lift the cup, facing Third Division Swindon Town in the final. Mind you, at least they had some silverware to console them, unlike the team they beat to lift the cup losing finalists Sunderland were also relegated from the top flight that season.

Norwich CITY, 1985 LEAGUE CUP WINNERS. Again, the Greeks kept a clean sheet to stun the Portuguese with a 1-0 win, confounding once again their status as 13th seeds in a 16-team tournament.

Swindon Town, 1969 LEAGUE CUP WINNERS

Not all champion teams look like odds on winners, however, as talkSPORT recalls

After being thrashed by New Zealand and losing to Tonga in the pool stages, nearly blowing a 16-point lead against a poor England team, then only just crawling over the line against a 14-man Wales side in the semi final, France have been labelled as the worst team to reach a Rugby World Cup final.

The last team to achieve the unwanted distinction of winning a major trophy and being relegated from the top flight before Birmingham City (2011 Carling Cup/Premier League relegation) was Norwich City, who followed up their 1985 League Cup success at Wembley by being relegated from the old First Division. A Peter Withe goal gave them a narrow, yet glorious win in the Rotterdam showpiece, belying their mediocre mid-table placing at home.

ASTON Villa, 1982 EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS

When Arsenal faced Birmingham City in the 2011 League Cup final, many people felt it was a forgone conclusion that they would end their six-year trophy drought and were shocked when Blues emerged with the silverware. St Helens lay in wait for the Rhinos, as the two went head-to-head in a Grand Final for the fourth time in five seasons. The Greeks proceeded to stun the rest of Europe by beating hosts Portugal in the opening game and then drawing against Spain. After losing 11 of their 27 regular season games, the Rhinos were forced to enter the play offs at the qualifying and elimination round,beating Hull FC to earn a place in the preliminary play off, where they overcame a Huddersfield team, that had finished a place above them. Having scraped past Austrian side Grazer AK, losing the second leg 1-0 at Anfield for a narrow 2-1 aggregate win, the Reds squeezed through on goal difference in the group stages after losing twice, away to Monaco and Olympiacos. While the Robins finished second in Division Three that season, Arsenal were going great guns near the top of Division One and were stunned to lose 3-1 in extra time to the lowest-placed team to win the League Cup.

LIVERPOOL, 2005 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNERS

GREECE, EURO 2004 WINNERS

In 2011 Leeds Rhinos became the first rugby league team to finish fifth in Super League’s regular season, then go on to be crowned Grand Final winners. The Reds found their form in the knockout stages, just edging Chelsea 1-0 over two legs of the semi final, despite finishing 37 points behind the Blues in the Premier League. After drawing level, they somehow held on for a penalty shoot-out victory against all the odds, but were only able to defend their trophy after UEFA agreed to let them join the next season’s preliminary stages, having failed to finish in the Premier League’s top four.

Greece started the European Championships in 2004 as 150/1 rank outsiders to win their first ever major competition

Spain Win FIFA World Cup 2010

In the 116th minute, just 4 minutes away from a penalty shootout, Andres Iniesta found the net for Spain. By winning the FIFA World Cup 2010, Spain have become first-time champions, and are also the first European team to win a world cup that has been held outside the continent of Europe.. It was just the last 10 minutes of play that changed the game, with the sending off of John Heitinga, and the Spaniards scoring 5 minutes later.

Germany 3 Uruguay 2 (THIRD PLACE)

The game was tied at one a piece at half time. But the 2010 FIFA World Cup ended differently. In another game on Saturday, Germany managed to get the better of Uruguay 3-2, to take third place.

Spain 1 Netherlands 0 (FINAL)

The regular 90 minutes saw no goals, and one thought that this was another tournament that would decide the winner on penalties. Espaa bien hecha!

Spain continued their run of 1-0 victories to outclass the Netherlands and add the FIFA World Cup of 2010 title to their kitty. Uruguay took the lead early in the 2nd half, but Germany got the equalizer almost immediately. The win gave Germany 3rd place for the second world cup running, and the 4th place was Uruguay’s best performance in 40 years.

FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 CHAMPIONS (red = knocked out, green = progressed)

Yes, Octopus Paul Allen got it right again. The Dutch were down to 10 men in the 111th minute, which set up Spain’s goal. This is their first world cup title ever, and the Netherlands will rue their miss, as it is their 3rd time as a losing finalist, and they have never managed to win the tournament ever. Sami Khedira headed one in the net for Germany in the 82nd minute to give them back the lead, and the game was nearly forced into extra time when a last-minute stunner from Forlan of Uruguay hit the German goal’s crossbar. The game saw some tight defense by the Dutch, whose strategy to nullify the flamboyant Spanish attack seemed to be working well

Victor Valdes situation made Man United dressing room flat

Then I might have to change and afterwards we have an evaluation and another meeting.

“Then we have to discuss with the players on the pitch how they feel and maybe we have to change. “You have to make an analysis of the opponent and you need a meeting to show that. Uncertainty over the future of David De Gea, who Van Gaal had omitted from the squad because of concerns about his state of mind amid interest from Real Madrid, was another issue for the team. Do you want to change something in that process? Then you have to have fantastic arguments and they are agreed on that.”

The 64-year-old said in a news conference that United’s lack of spirit was because: “Friends are going away, we have problems with Valdes, and we have problems with De Gea, which has a great influence on the dressing room. If they have good arguments then we have to change and we play the match.

“They are coming to my office, believe me, it is like it is. I am not a dictator, I am a communicator, and I have said that in advance.”

The ESPN FC panel discuss the importance of a stable dressing room as a trend in successful clubs. We are working at the most commercial club of the world, so we have also a lot of commercial activities, but it is still better than every other job.

“I have changed that I say the gameplan to them, for example,” Van Gaal said. That is why it is flat.”

“Then we have to see how they play and I have to say something at half-time. Then you have to make a game plan and hold a meeting about the game plan, then you have to practice.

Van Gaal accepted United have a lot of meetings but believes they are vital if they are to get the results they require.

Van Gaal dismissed suggestions he is an autocrat and said his players are consulted about his tactics.

The Dutchman accepted that sales of some of United’s popular players was one reason for unrest. “Now I ask in advance and they can say what they want, but most of the strategy is always the same, because they like the way we have done it.

Van Gaal rejected reports of unrest among his players but said that Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick, United’s captain and vice-captain respectively, came to him with their concerns about the mood in the camp.

“We have a lot of meetings, yes, that is the philosophy,” he said.

Louis van Gaal admitted the breakdown of his relationship with Victor Valdes helped cause the flat atmosphere in the Manchester United dressing room, but added he’s a communicator, not a dictator with his players.. The Dutch boss also insisted that his players like his gameplan as he launched a defence of his meetings culture by saying they are vital in a multimillion-pound modern businesses like football.

While United have been criticised for ponderous football and a lack of goals, he insisted they like his strategy

Van Gaal also put goalkeeper Valdes up for sale after alleging he refused to play for United’s reserves and he did not take the former Barcelona player on the pre-season tour and opted not to give him a squad number.

“When you have professional behaviour, that is a lot of meetings. De Gea signed a new contract on Friday.

“It is still better, because as a player you can work as your hobby, only you have to change your attitude, your professional attitude

You’ve blended right in. Others just do something stereotypical in order to fit in. They looked a bit bemused by the whole thing, but it’s doubtlessly won them some affectionate kudos from fans and squad alike.

We’re especially glad to see Vidal fitting in so well, considering that he was caught engaging in some frowned-upon antics soon after signing.

We don’t know whether Arty and Big Doug will be wearing their new outfits at home, but we live in hope.

Either way, good effort lads.

It’s not always easy for footballers to settle down in a new country. A different language, a different culture and a different way of life – all these things can be stumbling blocks for a recent signing trying to find his place in a team.

Some players decide to tackle the issue head on, quickly committing themselves to learning about their new surroundings. It’s much easier.

That seems to be the approach that Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa have taken at Bayern Munich.

. The pair, signed this summer from Juventus and Shakhtar Donetsk respectively, have immediately done the most German thing imaginable – readied themselves for Oktoberfest by wearing some vintage lederhosen.

Joining German signings Sven Ulreich and Joshua Kimmich, Vidal and Costa got publicly fitted out with the fetching leather breeches

“My greatest challenge is not what’s happening at the moment, my greatest challenge was knocking Liverpool right off their f****** perch. A famous quote by Sir Alex Ferguson about the rivalry will forever be immortalized by Manchester United fans.

But the victors will be duly forgiven, until the next encounter.

As Manchester United vs Liverpool rarely fails to disappoint, it has earned the honor of being the most intense rivalry in English football.

The cannon is the team’s symbol from when the team originally arose from the armament factory, as is their nickname, The Gunners. Fans of “The Gunners” are affectionately known as “Gooners” hence the site name – Gooner News. Arsenal is a professional football club in Great Britain and is considered among the elite of European teams. Today, Arsenal fans can access the best Arsenal news all in one place by visiting Gooner News to see the many featured blogs and websites that are dedicated to bringing you all of the latest and greatest in Arsenal news when it happens. Following that they would move to the stadium currently referred to as their home stadium, The Emirates, which can hold over sixty thousand fans. The club changed its name from the Royal Arsenal Football Club to Woolwich Arsenal Football And Athletic Company Limited when it became a limited liability company in May 1893 and then dropped the “Woolwich” a year later. Now that Arsenal have balanced the books and operated to a budget over the past few years in order to pay for their new stadium, Arsene Wenger looks set to make a lot of transfer news this summer as he loosens the purse strings and adopts a much more aggressive transfer policy in Arsenal’s business as evidenced by his recent purchase of Koln’s Lukas Podolski who looks like he will form a formidable partnership with Robin Van Persie in Arsenal’s attack. GoonerNews.com is the original website for Arsenal news ever since its launch at Highbury in 2004 where a team of 12 beautiful models handed out flyers promoting the internet’s new Arsenal News service Gooner News. GoonerNews.com is proud to announce that it has been providing the latest Arsenal Newssourced from the very best British and international news sites and fan blogs to Gooners everywhere around the world for eight long years now. Arsenal FC are one of the most successful clubs in English football having won 13 First Division and Premier League titles plus 10 FA Cups. Initially the team was based out of Woolwich where they were founded, but as the team grew, they moved in 1913 to the new Arsenal Stadium in Highbury. Also, the Gunners are only the second side ever to finish an English top division season unbeaten (they did it in the 2003-04 season) becoming known as “the invincibles” in the process.

Any fans of The Gunners know that their long standing rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur is always making plenty of news. It has been easy to see how so many people have become avid fans of Britain’s famous Arsenal football club, because of the beautiful way they play under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger and with players like club legends Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Tony Adams, Patrick Viera, Emmanuel Petit, Lee Dixon, and David Seaman and more recently and now Robin Van Persie, Cesc Fabregas Thomas Vermalen, Alex Song and Theo Walcott. The same applies to their rivalry with other London teams like Chelsea, Fulham and QPR plus the big North Western teams like Manchester United and Liverpool. Hopefully Podolski’s signing will encourage the Dutchman to resign for the Gunners as his signature is vital if Arsene Wenger hopes to attract more top talent to The Emirates and stop the exodus of stars like Thierry Henry, Emmanuel Adebayor, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri as in past off- seasons. Arsenal is a team with a long history and a deep connection to their roots.

The suspicion is that this was done to flatter last year’s accounts because prudent accounting practices require that revenues are booked in the years when they are earned.

Man Utd needs every pound and penny it can get — it won’t surprise you to learn that the Turkish Airlines deal isn’t a new one; the Turks replace Air Asia as the club’s official airline.

These tiny deals give the lie to the madness of football economics. Its most recent accounts show income of £37m from TV rights and £5m through the gate âEUR” but a staggering wage bill of £41m, some 80% of all football-related income.

The result is that no matter how successful they become, clubs’ margins are continuously razor thin. Real Madrid recently paid £80 million for striker Cristiano Ronaldo, for instance; Manchester City are reportedly preparing a £100 million bid for Liverpool F.C.’s Fernando Torres.

The answer is that despite its reach and riches, Man Utd teeters permanently on the brink of bankruptcy, swaying under £716.5 million in debts, about £504 million of which it recently refinanced on the bond market
