Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, October 19, 1973 Ability knocked after England's loss ANDY CAPP Sir Alf Ramsey under attack LONDON (CP) Sir Alf Karnsey, the for- mer grocer rocketed to fame in 1966 by directing the Eng- land side to a world soccer championship, now is caught in a blazing controversy sweeping through British sporting circles. The immediate cause of his troubles is his team's start- ling elimination by Poland this week from the 1974 World finals, the first time this has happened since England entered the competition in 1950 For 54-year-old Ramsey, it marks the lowest point in an illustrious career that began when he took over the Eng- land side as manager in 1962. At that time he made one of his rare bold predictions: "England will win the Cup in 1966." He kept his promise with England walloping West Germany 4-2 in extra time as an ecstatic nation turned out to celebrate. After that came a knighthood for Ramsey. But the West Germans learned their lessons well and in the 1970 quarter-finals in Mexico City they eliminated England in a 3-2 contest that also went into overtime. There were rumors then that Ramsey might resign or be fired, but he weathered the storm and began quietly pre- paring for the next World Cup in 1974. But now the rumors, in- nuendo and outright demands for resignation have multi- plied Commentators critical of Ramsey call him old-fash- ioned, sterile, predictable and obsolete. Those who still support him. such as The Times and The Daily Telegraph, say Eng- land's misfortunes were due to bad breaks and exceptional defensive play by Poland rather than to anv fault of the Putter was hot players or management. Ramsey, a salesman, gro- cer and wartime gunner be- fore he became a professional player with Southampton in 1946. had been extremely opti- mistic before the game with Poland. In fact, he hinted. England might be due for an easy victory. But his team, because of its current standing, had to have Grier Jones leads NAPA. Calif. (APi Grier Jones admitted that a couple of his from 50-60 feet and the other from about 10 lucky, but he had a bit of philosophy to cover it. "You take what you can get and said the 27-year-old former national collegiate champion after his seven- under-par 65 was good for the first round lead Thursday in the Kaiser Inter- national open golf tour- nament. "It was a good, solid round." said Jones, winner of two titles last season but shut out from victories this vear.

Phone 327-8889 When Ken Drvden walked out on the Montreal Canadiens i got the impression that Chicken Little had made her world premiere in Aesop's Fables, or wherever Ms. Little made her debut. Dryden's announcement sent hockey people madly runn- ing around Shouting "The sky is falling the ice is Translated it meant that a national tragedy had occurred; that the Montreal Canadiens would inevitably lose the Prince of Wales Trophy and The Stanley Cup in 1974 and other calamities would follow. Actually the Drvden disclosure was no surprise at all. Ken ventilated much of his hot air against the Canadiens to in- timates last spring. Looking further back, insiders recall his in- tense displeasure over the Henri Richard-Serge Savard episode. "Drvden loathes Savard." was the wav one respected Montreal hockey journalist put it." and the whole UD tight feeling in the dressing room that comes down from the front of- fice." What everyone seems to be overlooking is the fact that the Canadiens high command really don't care a fig about losing Drvden. Put yourself in manager Sammy Pollock's cranium and look at it this way: "Why do I need Drvden? The French separatists are hypersensitive these days. Ken is an English-Canadian I've got enough English-Canadians on rny team. Besides. I have two. good-looking young French-Canadipn goalies i Bunny Larocque and Michel Plasse) in my stable. Dryden is undependable anyhow. With his law degree, he'd be apt to walk out on us at anytime, so I might as well solve the problem now." "So what if we lose the Stanley Cup in 1974? Canadiens have won it so many times people are saying it would be good for hockey if some other club the Rangers for example became champions for a change. And if Montreal blows it, so what: there's always that ready-made alibi to fall back on: we didn't have Dryden. It's a terrific parlay." No. I wouldn't shed a tear for the Canadiens nor for Dryden. The Forum bosses would just as soon not pay Ken that big fat salary if they can help it. And as for Mister Goalie-Lawyer, he's in the delightfull position of being able to sign next fall with the World Hockey Association's Toronto Toros for a million bucks. Bidding adieu to the NHL will be no problem. Dryden has done in three years what Hall of Famers such as Bill Gadsby have never done; play on a Stanley Cup-winner. He's also been on a first-place club and won the Caler Trophy as Rookie-Of- The-Year and was voted president of the NHL Players Association. He's gotten everything possible out of the NHL in three years and now is ready to exploit the riches of the WHA. That's his pleasure and perogative. Dryden believed he was underpaid in Montreal. Perhaps he was. He asserted that he was about the best goaltender in the world. He isn't. Ken is a good goaltender who luckily happened to be carried by a very good hockey club in 1972-73. Tested to the ex- treme in the 1972 Stanley Cup playoffs against the Rangers he wilted, and failed. That was a very significant fold-up which many have ignored. If Dryden makes his walkout from Montreal stick, the deci- sion will be the best thing that happened to everybody the Canadiens, the WHA and Dryden. Everybody, that is, except the NHL.

BOSTON (AP) The Globe reports that Joe Cronin will be removed as American League president by club owners next week. The newspaper says it has learned that the owners will name Lee McPhail. New York Yankees' executive vice- president, to replace Cronin at a meeting in Chicago next Tuesday. Cronin has been league president since 1959. He had planned to retire when his contract expires in 1975. Cronin. an all-star shortstop with Washington Senators and Boston Red Sox, was voted to baseball's Hall of Fame in 1956. He served as player- manager of the Red Sox for many years. After hanging up his spikes, he was bench manager before moving up to general manager. "But the putting was the whole thing." said Jones, who used only 29 strokes on the greens. "I made everything I should have a cou- ple I shouldn't have "On those two long ones, I was just trying to get close. You can't expect to make those. When one of the big, long ones, with lots of break goes in. it's just got to be luck." The 50-60 footer was for an eagle three on the 18th. the highlight of his round, and the other was for birdie. "They turned a 67 into a 65." said twice a runner-up and winner of more than this season. Jones held a one-stroke lead over John Schlee, Rod Curl and Forrest Fezler, tied at 66. George Archer. Bert Greene and Jim Jewell followed at 67.

Ohio (AP) The death-marred Indianapolis 500-mile race is nearly five months into history but the controverey lingers on. Driver Salt Walther, who was severely burned during a first-lap crash and spent weeks in hospital, got into a verbal tangle Wednesday with Harlan Fengler, chief steward at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "I felt I got Walther said during a showing of a film of the 500 at a meeting here of the Society of Automotive Engineers, car owners and drivers. The Dayton driver said he re- mained conscious after his racer slammed into the wall. His comments were cut off at that point by Fengler, who asked the projectionist to turn up the sound. Afterwards, Walther asked Fengler why the drivers were not ordered to follow the pace car around the track for an ex- tra lap, to get everyone back into position. He noted there were five cars in his row. Fengler responded that the leaders already were past the starting line and there was room for another car in his row. He also noted no one had protested ui6 ificiuerii in which Walther was injured. After Walther left. Fengler had the last word by noting that a driver does not have to protest in person and that Walther's cre-v chief could have made the protest. In addition to Walther's crash, accidents took the lives of driver Swede Savage and crewmember Armando Teran during the race and driver Art Pollard during practice.

After the game, Ramsey told a television interviewer his players had been "first- class, as good as you'll find anywhere." With character- istic modesty, he argued that any blame for the peformance should be directed at him. Many sports commentators believe England's soccer au- thorities will back Ramsey against any attempt to deth- rone him. But they acknowl- edge also that public pressure for a replacement may be- come so great he would freely choose to resign. When asked whether he in- tended to quit, Ramsey sug- gested to a reporter that he should "mind his own busi- ness The soccer authorities themselves are deeply con- cerned by England's elimis- tion since it will likely mean a worsening of already dwindl- ing crowds, but their faith in Ramsey seems firm. The outcome will likely turn on how analysts of the game finally diagnose England's failure to win, and in this there are some hopeful signs for Ramsey. Most commentators agree that England could have won by five or six goals if a num- ber of near-misses had been on target. They also say that the players retained extraor- dinary control even in the fi- nal minutes and with the ex- ception of one team member, Martin Chivers, the side ap- peared to be in superb physi- cal condition. But Ramsey has been strongly criticized for not replacing Chivers early in the game with a proven goal-get- ter, rather than waiting until the last two minutes. It is an- other sign, some argue, of an increasingly-unhealthy con- servatism on the part of "the quiet man of soccer." NOWTHATS A SIT OF ALLKIGHT...' BEFORE; ocr LOST, GRANDAD THEKIDSOFTWAV ARE 50 ALIKE IN MANY DISRESPECTS: Williams can go NEW YORK (AP) Oakland Athletics owner Charles 0. Finley says manager Dick Williams, reported to be planning to resign after the World Series, "has an iron-clad two-year contract." Butin baseball, unlike professional football, manager's contracts are no longer "iron-clad" if a man wants to move to another team. "All Williams would have to do is Kansas City Royals manager, Jack McKeon, said Thursday. McKeon. happy with the Royals, said after hearing the report of Williams' pending move to New York Yankees: "I don't doubt it." Williams was still denying Thursday that he told his play- ers before Tuesday night's World Series game here that he would or the World Series. "Charlie hasn't asked me about the stories, because I've already denied Williams said. "This gossip has been going around for two weeks." Several players have con- firmed, however, that Williams told them he plans to resign. Second baseman Dick Green was the first to say it, explaining: "The news is all around now, anyway." Williams is in his third year as Oakland manager. The first 10 years Finley owned the Athletics, no manager lasted more than one full season. "I won't stand in his way if the Yankees approach me and ask for permission to talk to the owner said.
