The Republic of Ireland face the former World and European champions in the first-leg of their World Cup play-off at Croke Park on Saturday night. And the Aston Villa centre half has stoked up the fires by branding Domenechs unorthodox methods as the reason France have flopped under his guidance. He said: Every time a tournament comes round, they [France] have all these world-class players and then a man who seems intent on mess- ing them up, Dunne said in the Guardian. Over the last World Cups and European Champion- ships, things have not run smoothly for France; theyve always got through but maybe its time that we put a stop to that. And we know that if we cangetinfront,theyprobably have not got the man at the top to pull them back around.

Domenechs often odd behaviour -- not least when he famously proposed to his girlfriend on national television after a France defeat -- and his poor record mean he is far from popu- lar at home. Robert Pires, once snubbed by Domenech because he claimed Scorpios were untrust- worthy, last month claimed he learned nothing under the former France Under-21 coach. And back in September, the French Football Fed- eration were forced to play down reports of a major bust up between Thierry Henry and Domenech, after it had been reported that the Arsenal legend claimed the players were left uninspired and bored by the managers training sessions. Further evidence of the 57-year-olds unpopularity was borne out this week when he took his players to the Paris Masters tennis tournament, and was booed by the crowd once recognised.

With Gael Clichy being ruled out for a month by a back injury, Gibbs has now got the chance to cement his place in the Arsenal defence -- and impress England boss Fabio Capello. The England Under-21 defender said: Its in my mind somewhere, but we have a long season yet. Hopefully if I can get some more good games under my belt this season then there might be a chance -- but at the moment Im just concentrating on the club and what we can do to win trophies. Im still looking to take my chance when I get it, and Im happy enough with the way things are going. At the moment I dont really deserve to get a World Cup call because I have havent got the experience. I dont want to be called up because of someone elses disappointment, I want to be selected because I deserve it. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html48.html49.html50.html51.html52.html53.html54.html55.html
