Kia Joorabchian yesterday insisted that the Brazilian striker Jo, who is wanted by Manchester City, is fully-owned by the Russian club, CSKA Moscow. Joorabchian refuted claims that the proposed transfer flouted the Premier League rules which state third-party ownership is not allowed. In the case of £18m-rated Jo it is understood that CSKA have ownership but would have to pay 20 per cent of any sell-on fee to his former club Corinthians and to a South American investor. Joorabchian argues that such agreements are similar to those in other players with so-called "sell-on" contract clauses.
Sir Derek Higgs: Banker and chairman of Alliance & Leicester who brought sweeping reforms to Britain's boardrooms
Wednesday 30 April 2008
Derek Higgs enjoyed a glittering business career, first in investment banking and latterly as a company director of blue-chip businesses such as Prudential and Alliance & Leicester.

Daniel Fox has said he could barely have wished for a better mentor than the England Under-21 coach, Stuart Pearce.
Wednesday 26 March 2008
Fabio Capello would no doubt settle for a similar result from England's seniors in Paris tonight, but the country's next generation of players will probably view yesterday evening's friendly international as only a limited success. While Stuart Pearce's Under-21 team rarely looked in danger of losing an unbeaten record – if you discount a penalty shoot-out – that goes back three years, as an attacking force they posed only an occasional threat.

On Saturday, the forecast for San Sebastian was 19C and sunny. In Coventry it was 12 degrees at best, windy and overcast. The Ricoh Stadium is nowhere near the beach, while Chris Coleman's previous club, Real Sociedad, is close to one of the most scenic coastal areas of the Basque country. We know that Coleman did not swap northern Spain for the Midlands in the hope of better weather, and in footballing terms he has traded down as well.

Chris Coleman probably could not have asked for a trickier game to begin his tenure as Coventry's latest manager, yet having won this local derby he wouldn't have had it any other way.
