LITESPORT London Lite Monday, 10 August 2009 35 BY FRED DECISIONBREAKING NEWS... Barca wont break bank to bring back Gunner Cesc BARCELONA sporting director Txiki Begiristain has admitted the club want to take Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas back to the Nou Camp, but will not pay over the odds. Barca have long been linked with their former youth player (above), and Begiristain identified him as one of the few players capable of improving a team that won a domestic and European treble last season. It depends on how much we want to spend, he said. If we spend a lot of money, it is possible to bid for Fabregas. We do not know how much it will be yet. We have not asked Arsenal. If the amount is too high, we will not try. We find it difficult to improve what we have and that is the reality. Improving a team that has won a treble is difficult, and trying to improve dramatically can get you into trouble. Any new player must be compatible with our plans. CHELSEAS COMMUNITY SPIRIT: PAGE 32 Heineken Cup threat as Quins face fresh fake blood inquiry HARLEQUINS could be kicked out of this seasons Heineken Cup after the European Rugby Cup launched an appeal against the decision not to charge club officials for the fake blood scandal. Quins winger Tom Williams was suspended for 12 months for simulating a blood injury during last seasons quarter- final defeat to Leinster. But an independent disciplinary panel dismissed all accusations against director of rugby Dean Richards, who resigned on Saturday in the wake of the incident, club doctor Wendy Chapman and physiotherapist Steph Brennan. The ERC are believed to be unhappy with that ruling, as well as the 215,000 fine imposed on Harlequins -- half of which is suspended for two years -- and could now push for stiffer sanctions, including suspension from the tournament. Williams, meanwhile, will separately appeal his year- long ban, although Quins admit they will undertake an internal inquiry into their behaviour. A statement read: The club is urgently undertaking a thorough review of its internal policies with a view to establishing an appropriate ethics code.Tigers pride: Champ with WGC trophy BY HARRY LANE holes took me out of the championship, and I only missed the cut by a shot, he explained in reference to that performance at Turnberry. I kept hearing it was just devastating for me to miss the cut -- by a shot. I said, Guys, I just had one bad stretch. And you have those bad stretches, and unfortunately it cost me. Youve just got to not have those bad stretches, just clean it up a little bit. I was able to do it the last couple weeks, and instead of having a bad stretch, I had positive ones. horror hole in Ohio Blood smear: Tom Williams ing bowler Jimmy Anderson will also find out in the next 24 hours whether or not his hamstring strain will keep him out of the Oval decider.

Ramps can step up to the Mark against the Aussies MARK RAMPRAKASH should be sensationally recalled into the England team for the crucial fifth Ashes Test against Australia, according to his Surrey manager. Following the dismal performances of middle order batsmen Ravi Bopara, Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood in the humiliating innings defeat at Headingley, the England selectors are facing calls to make big and brave changes for the must-win game at The Oval. And Surrey manager Chris Adams reckons Ramps is the man to step up against a resurgent Aussie side -- even though he made his last Test appearance seven years ago. If I was an England selector picking my best side, hed be in it, Adams told BBC Radio 5Live when asked about the 39-year-old. He is playing the best cricket of his life. He has done so for three years. I believe strongly he has been the best batsman available for England for those three years. I know Kevin Pietersen would have something to say about that but from what Ive seen from Mark this year he is an exceptional batsman, a batsman who is right at the top of his game. But another old name also in the frame for a recall, Marcus Trescothick, today definitely ruled himself out. The Somerset star has crashed more than 1,000 runs this season, but does not want to be considered for The Oval, saying: Im retired. Its done and dusted. Meanwhile, struggling Bopara, who has scored just 105 runs against Australia in the Ashes series, has been released to play for Essex against Middlesex in the LV County Championship this week to try to rediscover his form.
