Extractions: HOME SOCCER RUGBY CRICKET ... EPL Fantasy Manchester City v Wolves Story Tools: Print Email RivalsDM Posted: 524 days ago host with manager Kevin Keegan still away with a bad back. City are unbeaten since assistant manager Arthur Cox took over and it will be interesting to see whether Cox and Keegan, who communicate telephonically over team selections, will start with Nicolas Anelka and Robbie Fowler up front. With the exception of defender Daniel van Buyten, who remains a long-term injury victim with a knee injury, the Blues have a full-strength squad ahead of the match. Meanwhile, are staring relegation in the face with just eight games left and will be looking to win all their remaining fixtures. Manager Dave Jones could be boosted by the return of defenders Mark Clyde and Paul Butler from injury ahead of the trip to the City of Manchester Stadium. Clyde has been sidelined with a calf injury and was sent for another scan yesterday, with veteran Denis Irwin set to start if the youngster is ruled out. Manager Dave Jones said: "If he can get through the pain barrier then he should be all right to be involved because he knows it's not an injury that can pull again or is at risk of causing any new damage if he plays with it."

Extractions: Written by Dave Litterer email@example.com , and Steve Holroyd firstname.lastname@example.org North American Soccer League (Div. 1) The Cosmos' success led to an unprecedented spending spree in 1978 by other NASL teams to acquire international players. This marked a major shift in developmental strategy, borrowing from the philosophy of the NFL's George Allen, "The future is now". Teams mortgaged their future to buy the best talent they could afford. The Cosmos, led by the deep pockets of Warner Brothers started the trend, and other teams were forced to follow suit or fall by the wayside. Some criticized this move as shortsighted, saying that it was more important to develop American talent. But during these heady times, those voices were lonely cries in the wilderness. Teams such as the St. Louis Stars, who advocated this philosophy struggled against the obviously superior foreign talent. The NASL continued its extensive package of exhibitions against international clubs, with over two dozen games this season. The NASL followed its success by undergoing a major expansion, adding six teams, and dividing into a NFL-style divisional lineup, with American and National conferences of three divisions each, and expanding the season to 30 games. The old Boston and Philadelphia franchises were revived under new ownership, with Lipton Tea Company operating the New England tea Men, and an ownership group headed by a dazzling array of current rock musicians owning the new Philadelphia Fury. New England landed Costa Rican star Ringo Cantillo from the ASL. The Tea Men also signed Irish forward Mike Flanagan who went on to lead the league in scoring. Unfortunately, a contract dispute led him to return to England where he was never able to repeat his performance with the Tea Men. The Fury introduced the NASL to designer uniforms, and a team logo which still holds up well to this day. They signed Alan Ball, who had played on England's 1966 World Cup champion team.

Extractions: Written by Dave Litterer email@example.com , with supplemental materials by Steve Holroyd firstname.lastname@example.org North American Soccer League (Div. 1) The NASL continued its extraordinary run in 1979. Although attendance dipped slightly, part of this was due to the large number of new franchises, some of which endured growing pains. The league still drew sizeable crowds, and enjoyed respectable media coverage. The NASL continued to sign major international stars in 1979. The Los Angeles Aztecs lured Dutch superstar Johan Cruyff out of retirement with a reported $700,000 per year deal, and he went on to win the league MVP award. Signings included World Cup veteran Gerd Muller of West Germany, signed by Ft. Lauderdale, Swedish defender Bjorn Nordqvist, signed by the Minnesota Kicks, English midfielder Alan Hudson, who went to the Seattle Sounders, and Manchester United goalkeeper Alex Stepney, who was signed by the Dallas Tornado. A brief player strike threatened to create havoc early in the season, but was quickly resolved, only affecting the games of April 14. Teams playing that day signed replacement players recruited from local leagues, to replace those players who refused to dress for their scheduled games. The NASL signed a two-year deal with ABC for national telecasts of regular season and playoff games. This resulted in a big boost in publicity for the league, and although ratings were disappointingly low, the package was a vast improvement over the TVS package of previous years. For 1979, the package included nine broadcasts, including the Soccer Bowl. Perhaps in recognition of soccer's relative newness for the mainstream fan, the broadcasts included extensive descriptions of soccer rules during the telecasts. Constant interruptions for commercials were a major annoyance, and highlighted the challenges in meshing soccer games with American broadcast traditions.

Excerpts and photo from the Daily Star, Tues., April 9, 1996 An horrific injury to Coventry defender David Busst overshadowed Manchester United's march towards a third Championship in four years. The Sky Blues injury jinx struck again in the most gruesome of circumstances after just 70 seconds. Busst lay in agony, his blood staining the turf, after colliding with United's Denis Irwin as he-charged in to try to notch a shock goal. The massive 50,332 crowd - the biggest domestic attendance in nine years - was shocked into awful silence as Busst had his legs strapped together before being carried off. He later endured three hours of surgery for a compound fracture to right leg. Players from both teams were visibly horrified as they turned away from Busst's prone figure, inside the six-yard box. Play was held up for nine minutes, partly to allow groundstaff and United keeper Peter Schmeichel to clean up a dark patch of blood in the goalmouth.
