Dragons Den invest in England 2010 World Cup anthem

May 24, 2009

world-cup-song-dragons-den Warren delivers an unusual pitch as it includes an acoustic version of his 2010 World Cup song, Believe. Julie Meyer immediately likes the song but wants to establish Warren’s track record. He admits he has been successful in competitions but has never troubled the record charts. The Dragon wants to know if he would be keen to tour as it is in live performance that the money now lies and Warren, a long time busker, reassures her it is his lifeblood. Shaf Rasul wants to know if is investing in a business or a song and when Warren beguiling replies “in me” the Dragon shifts tack invites the singer to weigh up the likely competition for a World Cup song in 2010. Warren concedes there may be up to 10 other songs around and Shaf Rasul remains unconvinced that given the big name performers who may be involved that Warren’s song will punch through – as he points out this is real David v Goliath stuff. Given such a high risk proposition, Shaf Rasul challenges Warren as to how much he would contribute to the venture and both Dragons are amazed when the singer-songwriter promises he would match funding – if one of the Dragons put up £25,000, he would too. Julie Meyer immediately wants to do a deal – but with conditions. She wants Warren to match funding, to have access to all his potential revenue streams, including live performance, and above all to have a controlling 51% stake in his company.

Shaf Rasul admits Warren is a very high risk investment and because he would want more than 51% if he were to invest, he declares himself out.

Warren attempts to negotiate Julie Meyer down but because of his lack of a track record she holds her ground and Warren, with little hesitation, agrees to the deal.

The deal done in the Den: Warren secures the £25,000 investment, promises to match the Dragon’s funding and surrenders 51% equity

Carlo to stay at Milan Drogba will stay too

May 23, 2009

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti insists he is “100% certain” to stay at the San Siro next season – though he admits he would “love” to manage Chelsea.

Speculation has been rife that the 49-year-old will leave for Stamford Bridge this summer to replace Guus Hiddink.

But he said: “I’d say it’s 100% certain I’ll still be at Milan next year. I (talked to Chelsea) last year, but this year no. (But) I’d love to coach them.”

Hiddink: No change of heart

Guus Hiddink has firmly ruled out continuing to combine the Chelsea and Russia jobs next season.

Hiddink is set to quit his interim position with the Blues after the FA Cup final on May 30, having taken over from Luiz Felipe Scolari in February.

He said: “In September, October and November there is a busy international schedule. When you are in a big club it is irresponsible to do both jobs.”

Drogba: I want to stay

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge as long as the club want him.

The forward has endured a mixed season and has consistently been linked with a move to Inter Milan to join up again with former coach Jose Mourinho.

But he told Sky Italia: “This club was already historical but it will become even more so. I’m proud to be part of it – I want to stay.”

Gerrard Credit To Super Sami

May 23, 2009

Steven Gerrard has led the tributes to defender Sami Hyypia, who will leave the club after Sunday’s home game with Tottenham.

Hyypia, 35, will join Bayer Leverkusen on a two-year contract in the summer, ending a decade of service at Anfield.

“It’s difficult to put into words how we feel about Sami. He’s been fantastic for us, a colossus,” said Gerrard.

“He certainly deserves legendary status and he is definitely one of the best players I have ever played alongside.”

Hyypia, who joined Liverpool from Dutch side Willem II in 1999 for £2.5m, is expected to make his 464th appearance for Liverpool in their final game of the season, at home to Tottenham on Sunday.

The former club captain has won the Champions League and Uefa Cup during his time on Merseyside, as well winning the European Super Cup in 2001 and 2005, the FA Cup in 2001 and 2006 and League Cup in 2001 and 2003
Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee hailed Finland international Hyypia’s professional attitude and tipped him to move into coaching once his playing days are over.

“Sami is a terrific professional, a fine player,” said Lee. “Under that cool exterior there is a really emotional guy and he will certainly feel that on Sunday.

“These days you do not get players staying very long at one club, but it is a testimony to him that he has been able to evolve as a player and last 10 years at this club
