Extractions: Dennis Bergkamp may have been the best steal ever in the history of the Premier League in England. When Arsenal acquired him from Inter Milan in the summer of 1995, they became instant contenders for the league crown. The accomplished Dutch striker is famed for his scoring touch from the most impossible of angles and has netted some of the most stunning goals for his native Holland squad. Bergkamp led Arsenal to a fantastic championship season in 1997/98 and then went on to help manage Holland to a final four appearance in France during the World Cup. The physical toll of the grueling season resulted in numerous ailments for the striker and Bergkamp was forced to sit out much of the next year.
Extractions: LONDON (Reuters) Dennis Bergkamp hopes he can put a shine on a disappointing season by playing in Saturday's FA Cup final, the showpiece event that captivated him as a boy in the Netherlands. Bergkamp has not played for the Arsenal first team since March 18 an achilles injury has forced him to miss nine games. But the striker turned out for the reserves on Tuesday, scoring in a 4-0 win over Tottenham, and hopes manager Arsene Wenger saw enough to include the Dutchman in his cup final plans. Selection for the Cardiff showdown with Liverpool would eradicate the memory of 1998 when, after playing probably the best season of his career for double winners Arsenal, he missed the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United because of injury. "When it comes to football I have a certain amount of belief in fate and I'm hoping it's my fate to play in the final," Bergkamp said on his icons.com Web site.
Extractions: World Cup Record: 1994, 1998 (4th) Bergkamp scored the decisive goal in the Netherlands' quarterfinal win over Argentina in 1998. Ben Radford/Allsport The Netherlands may have failed to qualify for the 2002 finals, but Bergkamp's unwillingness to step onto a plane, ever since a bomb scare aboard a Dutch squad flight during USA 1994, meant the Arsenal striker was never likely to have put in an appearance in the Far East. Bergkamp single-handedly sculpted one of the great moments in World Cup history to help the Dutch reach the semifinals at France '98. Tied at 1-1 against Argentina and with injury time looming, Bergkamp ran onto a 60-yard pass from Frank de Boer, brought the ball under control, wrong footed the Argentine defense and slotted it home without breaking stride. It was a World Cup wonder goal, but in the semifinals the Dutch lost out to Brazil on penalties, although Bergkamp's three goals for the tournament were enough to make him the Netherlands' leading all-time goalscorer. Four years earlier the Brazilians had ended another promising Dutch World Cup campaign at the quarterfinals stage. In that competition, Bergkamp chipped in with important goals against Morocco to help the Dutch win their first-round group and in their second round win over Ireland. His goal also sparked a brave Dutch fightback to 2-2 in the quarterfinal before Branco's freekick won it for the Brazilians.

Extractions: This site would look much better if you upgraded to a newer browser capable of supporting web standards Tuesday, March 05, 2002 Wide Open It really is going to go down to the wire A few things from this weekend; of equal significance are Arsenal's grit, determination and brilliance against Newcastle at St James' and Derby's magnificent home draw (not a victory through pure bad luck) against Manchester United. Arsenal were simply stunning against the magpies, with outstanding performances from Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires and Dennis Bergkamp but a special word is due for Lee Dixon. Running around like a 20 year old (he's 38) he was superb and handled Laurent Robert (of whom I'm a big fan) with aplomb. Malcolm Christie If Liverpool finish this season poorly then a candidate for blame is their underuse of Jari Litmanen Liverpool should also look at their transfer policy for some schoolboy errors; what do Vladamir Smicer Patrik Berger Jerzy Dudek Stephane Henchoz Milan Baros and Igor Biscan It's team of the week time, but I must mention the great difficulty in choosing a goal of the week. We were treated to some absolute beauties from Chris Marsden, Jason Euell, Matt Jansen and Malcolm Christie to name a few. One stood out for guile, speed of thought, audaciousness, difficulty and sheer brilliance.
Extractions: This site would look much better if you upgraded to a newer browser capable of supporting web standards Thursday, March 28, 2002 After a hectic week I've finally replaced my computer, if anyone's visited in the last 5 days I hope the passing tumbleweed didn't get in your way. Summing up last weekend's results all seems a bit pointless (a bit like United) so suffice to say the whiskey's in the post to Steve McLaren Good on Dennis Bergkamp for showing that despite his doubters and a couple of lukewarm seasons there's no substitute for class. Another almost flawless performance from the Dutch master and a stunning display from Arsenal was only soured by the cruciate ligament injury to Robert Pires. The (surely) soon to be player of season will miss the rest of the domestic season and also the World Cup (barring a dodgy French team doctor telling him he's alright.) Performace of the week : Arsenal vs Newcastle
Extractions: First Published: Nov 20, 2002 Arsenal's Dennis Bergkamp has admitted the rib injury that forced him out of last week's bitter clash with Tottenham was caused by an elbow - his own. The Dutch star left just 26 minutes into the north London derby following a hard challenge from Tottenham's Dean Richards. "Dennis had to come off with inflammation of his ribcage and we don't really know where it came from," Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday. "But he thinks that maybe when he fell he hit himself with his elbow." Scans have revealed no serious damage, but Bergkamp has yet to confirm his availability for Saturday's trip to Southampton. "They (the ribs) are still pretty sore and I have to miss a couple of training sessions, but hopefully everything will be fine for the weekend and I'll be in contention against Southampton," the 33-year-old said. Bergkamp's departure came just minutes before Spurs midfielder Simon Davies was controversially sent off for a second yellow card.
Extractions: First Published: Jun 25, 2000 Patrick Kluivert demolished Yugoslavia with four goals to put Euro 2000 co hosts Holland in to the semi finals. The FC Barcelona star scored four times to become the top scorer in the tournament with six goals and was only on the field for 59 minutes. He was substituted on the hour mark after a head injury following an elbow from Sinisa Mihajlovic in an aerial challenge but by then he had wrecked Yugoslavia's defence. A quiet opening hardly hinted at the exhibition of top class finishing to come. Predrag Mijatovic was put clear in the middle of goal in the 14th after good work on the left by Savo Milosevic but Mijatovic hit his shot too close to Edwin van der Sar. Dennis Bergkamp fired a shot from the left a minute later when hee cut inside and curled a shot with his right foot which Kralj palmed away and then Kluivert took over the game with four goals in thirty six minutes either side of the interval.
