World Cup hero Simpson on brink

BRILLIANT:
Paul Simpson
with the Under-20s
World Cup
NEVER in his wildest dreams did
Paul Simpson imagine that he
would become only the second
England manager to win a World
Cup – then lose his job a month
or so later.
But that is the harsh reality facing the
man who steered England’s Under-20s to
World Cup glory in South Korea.
As it stands, Simpson is employed by the
FA as a specialist coach.
Managing the Three Lions’ first world
conquerers since 1966 was just one part of
the job.
He admits himself that there is a “very
real possibility” that when the FA discuss
the future with him at the end of next
month he could be denied the opportunity
to defend the trophy which has so captured
the nation’s hearts.
Those who run English football are
hardly likely to kick out a coach they rate
so highly –
after all,
he has
Colin
Mafham
Exclusive
just won the country’s first World Cup in
51 years.
But it is just the way the system works
at St George’s Park where Simpson is
based.
England’s previously unheralded hero,
who is currently on a well-earned break in
Florida, simply said: “I am hoping I have
done enough to stay with the FA.”
That would appear to be as near to a
certainty as you can get in football.
But there is a chance that his ‘reward’ for
winning England’s first international
honour in decades will be for someone else
to take over the Under-20s job while he
moves on to another.
If that does happen, Simpson will accept
his fate with gratitude and hope that
he has opened the door for some of the
country’s brightest young talents to
prosper big time.
He said: “As a kid you dream of playing
for England but that boat had sailed for me
so I went into this with my eyes wide open
and it was a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
“The FA will have a chat with me at the
end of July and I am just hoping I have
done enough to stay with them.
“There is so much good stuff going on
that goes under the radar and I am really
enjoying what I am doing now.
“We have returned with World Cup
winners’ medals and our hope for these
fine young players is to get as much elite
football as they can from now on.
“If clubs decide otherwise there is
nothing we can do about it.”
Simpson, whose previous jobs in
management took him to Carlisle,
Rochdale, Preston, Shrewsbury, Stockport
and even Northwich Victoria, was
reluctant to single out particular players
as he looked back on his side’s triumph.
But in revealing how difficult it was to
get the best youngsters released for the
tournament, two clubs – Bournemouth
and Everton – got a special mention for
their part.
Ronald Koeman sanctioned the release
of five of his brightest young stars to
join Simpson’s squad from Goodison
Park.
The Cherries also allowed midfielder
Lewis Cook to go to South Korea despite
being a Premier League starter on nine
occasions and at a time when they were
still fighting for their top-flight future.
All of them – including talent like new
Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke, scorer
of 10 goals in 15 games for the Under-20s
and Newcastle’s Adam Armstrong – now
move on to a future in the Under-21s squad
at least.
“It is out of our hands now and we just
have to hope and keep our fingers crossed
that they get enough game time to show
what they can do,” Simpson added.

STRICT: David Unsworth
Unsy says
it’s time for
famous five
to kick on
By STEVE MILLAR
EVERTON’S Famous Five can
relax on their sunbeds and
lap up every precious
moment of being a World Cup
winner.
But their Goodison Park
Under-23s boss David
Unsworth is already warning
them to get back to business
once they unpack and work
their socks off to become
first-team regulars.
In his eyes, though, Jonjoe
Kenny, Callum Connolly,
Ademola Lookman, Dominic
Calvert-Lewin and Kieran
Dowell could not have a
better chance to prove their
worth than under the expert
guidance of Everton manager
Ronald Koeman.
The Dutchman is not afraid
to be down with the kids – his
glory years playing at sides
like Ajax and Barcelona have
encouraged hime to believe
in giving youth a break.
Unsworth admits he jumped
around his lounge cheering
the Everton boys he has
coached as they beat
Venezuela in South Korea to
become the undisputed world
champions of Under-20s
football.
Now the hard work begins.
Unsworth said: “It’s an
amazing achievement. What
they have done is very, very
special. We are so proud of
our Everton boys and I’m
delighted. I was biting my
nails and shouting at the TV.
“Then I was jumping around
at the full-time whistle. They
have to enjoy this moment
because it can be once in a
lifetime. They should enjoy it,
rest and then they need to
come back flying for
pre-season.
“All five of them are great
lads. They are all desperate to
be part of what is going on at
our club. But they have to
keep proving themselves.
“Just because they have
come through our ranks
doesn’t mean they have a
divine right to play in our first
team. They need to prove it
every day in training and they
need to earn their places.
“What I do know is that they
are all fighters and they will
give it their best to get there.
We have a manager who is
not afraid to play young
players if he feels they are
good enough.
“So they have an
opportunity here and
historically over the years
we have always given an
opportunity to young players.
“Our boys have already had
a taste of first-team football
and it’s up to them now to
grasp the nettle, really kick
on and improve. They have
been on a great stage.
“They have had great
exposure and they have done
something no team has ever
done before. They have got to
have the hunger and desire.”

Bracewell
gets Black
Cats boot
By PAUL HETHERINGTON
SUNDERLAND yesterday
parted company with assistant
manager Paul Bracewell.
The managerless club told
him last Tuesday that he
would be leaving and that has
now been officially confirmed.
Bracewell, 54, is already
looking for another job in the
game.
The ex-England midfielder
said: “It has been a great
honour to serve Sunderland
AFC as a player, coach and
assistant manager for a
combined total of 10 years.
“I would like to thank the
club and its staff but also the
supporters for the great
backing I have received
throughout my Sunderland
career. I now look forward to
the next challenge in my
football career.”
Bracewell, who had three
playing spells at Sunderland,
was informed he was leaving
to make way for a new
mangement team.
That was going to be
Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes
and his assistant Tony
Docherty but they pulled out
because of the uncertainty
surrounding the ownership of
the club and its finances.
Owner Ellis Short is in talks
to sell Sunderland and hopes
to agree a deal before the
start of next season.
But if his deadline is not
met, he will stay in charge
and the current regime will
appoint a managerial
successor to David Moyes,
who quit in May in the wake
of the Black Cats’ relegation.

Monk has
no room
for rebels
By CLIVE HETHERINGTON
GARRY MONK has promised
to root out any dressing-room
unrest at Middlesbrough.
Winger Stewart Downing
and defenders Ben Gibson
and George Friend have all
hinted at trouble behind the
scenes on Teesside.
Aitor Karanka agreed to go
as head coach in March as
Boro slumped – but caretaker
boss Steve Agnew failed to
save them from relegation.
Now Monk, who has taken
charge on a three-year
contract after quitting Leeds,
will insist on unity as he
chases immediate promotion.
He said: “The players aren’t
back yet but all of those
situations that are linked with
the first team are for me to
assess and make the sure the
environment is right for every
player to work in.
“There are a lot more facets
to the process than just that
but main one for me is the
environment the players work
in has to be the best possible.
“That’s something I’m very
big on and something I’ve
always done in the past.
“I will be identifying
anything that can help that
environment to grow and
making sure it’s the right
culture.
“It’s very early days, we’re
going through a process right
now of being around and
getting a feel for the club.
“Then we’ll be with the
players and understanding
the players, speaking to them
and making sure things grow
from there.’’
SKY’S THE
■
LIMIT: Rafa
Benitez wants
Newcastle to aim
high next season
MALCOLM MACDONALD
has applauded Newcastle
boss Rafa Benitez for his
amazing title talk on the
club’s return to the Premier
League.
The Toon manager raised a few
eyebrows outside St James’ Park
when asked about his ambitions for
next season.
Benitez said: “To build a strong
team that can compete in the
Premier League for everything.
When I say everything I don’t say the
title – but why not? You have to try.”
It was speculated that the Spanish
coach had enjoyed a little bit too
much sangria as he celebrated
promotion back to the top flight.
But Supermac happily raises a
glass of his own to the Magpies boss
giving the club more to think about
than relegation.
So why not, as Benitez
says, aim high, set the
target of finishing No.1 and
give the Geordie supporters
a dream ahead of their
new Premier League
campaign?
Macdonald (below)
can only remember one
other manager using
the word ‘title’ even
before a ball was
kicked – his old
Luton boss Alec
Stock back
in the day.
He said:
“Bosses
will never
broach
t h a t
subject
e v e n
c o m e
April but I
recall Alec,
when I very
first joined, telling us on the
eve of our first game that we
should get promoted for the
fans.
“He set me a target of
30 goals and when
we won promotion I offered
Alec a plastic cup of
champagne and said, ‘I
have got an apology, I
didn’t hit your target. I
only scored 29.’
“Alec replied, ‘Don’t
forget next season
my old son, you
owe me one’.
“I can see
nothing wrong
with setting
targets and
Rafa is right
to set those
sights high.
When I read
what he
said, I
hoped he
would
buy a
whole
load of
Steve
Millar
Exclusive
copies and give one each to his
players and say, ‘Read that’.
“He’s set the targets and goals for
Newcastle next season.
“If he says let’s go for the Premier
League title but Newcastle fail with
that aim then they are in Europe.
Some failure that.
“There should never be any talk
or thoughts of relegation
“In the last decade they have been
relegated twice. They had players
good enough not to go down but I had
the feeling that minds weren’t right
on both occasions.
“If you fear something you know
for sure you are going to face it.
“Walk outside and worry you are
going to face a snake and you will. If
clubs are frightened of relegation it
will happen sooner or later.
“And don’t say fourth bottom will
do. It won’t. I watched Chelsea from
the beginning of last season and
they made it totally clear they were
going to win the league.
“I thought if they continue with
this attitude it’s going to take them
all the way.
“That’s the mentality Rafa is
creating. I can understand people
outside Newcastle wondering what
he is on about.
“In some quarters he will be
ridiculed and his critics will file that
article away to wave in his face if he
gets it wrong.
“For me, it’s a bold manager who is
setting out his aims and he’s not
going to be satisfied with anything
else other than forcing his way into
the top six.
“Of course, it’s one hell of a jump
but that’s what you have got to do.
“That’s the standard he’s setting.
There’s nothing wrong with setting
the bar high and really giving it your
best shot.
“Rafa hasn’t lost control – he’s
keeping the thought of relegation
out of people’s heads.
“He’s looking at the top six in the
Premier League and saying ‘I’m
going to jump in the middle of that
and upset a few’.
“So good on you, Rafa.”

BEAUTY:
Chris Hughton
led Brighton
back to the
top flight after
a 34-year wait
Until May this year the former
Fulham and Spurs midfielder
(below) was the only man to lead
the Seagulls into the top flight of
English football, back in 1979.
Now a club ambassador, Mullery
was delighted to welcome the
current Brighton boss into his
exclusive club.
Former Ireland international
Hughton is one of football’s nice
guys and steered his side to a
second-place finish behind his
former club Newcastle.
And as he prepares the club for a
crack at the Premier League big
boys, Mullery said: “It was
getting a bit lonely being
the only manager to
have led the club into
the top flight!
“Now Chris has
joined me and
rightly takes his
place in the
history books of
this great club.
“Chris is a quiet
man – he’s not a
Gus Poyet or an Alan
Mullery – but he gets
things done in a calm
and collected manner.
“It’s no coincidence that
wherever he has been people only
say good things about him.
“After they lost out to Boro the
season before I said to Chris, ‘Come
on. Do it next year. Get this monkey
off my back’. They did it in style.
“He will forever be remembered
here as the man who took Albion to
the promised land.”
Mullery still vividly recalls the
day when his side won promotion
with a 3-1 win at Newcastle on the
final day 38 years ago, going on to
stay in Division One until 1983.
The ex-England international
said: “We caught the paralytic
express train home and fans joined
in the fun.”

Walters must make
every minute count
JON WALTERS is hoping
for more time on the
pitch with Stoke this
season – to keep his
World Cup dream alive.
The striker (below) only
made 13 starts for the
Potters last season but
has managed to keep his
place in Martin O’Neill’s
Republic of Ireland side.
And last weekend saw
him bag the 14th goal of
his international career
against Austria.
With Ireland second in
Group D and in a
prime position to
reach their first
World Cup
finals since
2002, Walters
is anxious to
stay in O’Neill’s
thoughts.
But he knows
he needs to be
playing regularly.
Last year was his worst
– in terms of appearances
– for Stoke since he joined
the club from Ipswich in a
£2.75million move in 2010.
And while he has
clocked up 279 games in
the seven years since, just
23 of them were last year,
and worse still, 10 of those
were from the bench.
Walters, 33, said: “I love
Stoke and have had the
time of my life here.
“Thankfully I’ve still got
By BRENDAN KEANE
a year left on the contract.
All I want is to play and be
in with the chance of
going to the World Cup.
“You want to be playing,
every footballer does.
“Our aim is to make
the finals.
“We got to the Euros
last year and had a great
time. We want another
taste of that.”
More than anyone,
Walters wants a
second chance to
appear at a major
tournament.
A year ago,
he was the
hero of the
qualification
campaign
– scoring vital
goals against
Bosnia, Poland,
Scotland and
Georgia.
But when he got to
France, injury limited his
involvement to one start
and one substitute
appearance.
Despite that, he said:
“There are far worse
things happening in the
world than me being
injured for a tournament.
“I tried to get through it
but couldn’t. You move on,
now I want to get to the
World Cup – we all do.”

Mullery added: “When City were

“What a way to start, against one
of the biggest clubs in the world. I
just want to be there.
“I owe Brighton. They gave me
my first job in management.

RUSSIA ........... 2
NEW ZEALAND.. 0
By DAVID HYDE
HOSTS Russia cruised past
minnows New Zealand in the
Confederations Cup
curtain-raiser.
An own-goal in the first half
put Stanislav Cherchesov’s
men ahead before Fedor
Smolov killed off the game
after the interval at the
Krestovsky Stadium in St
Petersburg.
Midfielder Denis Glushakov
flicked the ball over
goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic
in the 31st minute as New
Zealand’s backline rushed to
try and clear the ball.
All Whites defender Michael
Boxall was the unfortunate
man who got the last touch
on the ball and forced it over
the line for an own-goal.
After the break, the home
side sealed the win thanks to
sloppy defending by New
Zealand.
Forward Smolov was
allowed plenty of space to
tap in a low cross by
team-mate Aleksandr
Samedov in the 69th minute.
Russia, who have slumped
to a record low 63rd in FIFA’s
world rankings, will face
stiffer competition against
Portugal and Mexico in the
rest of their group fixtures.
The hosts will take on
Fernando Santos’ European
champions on Wednesday.

MEXICO will not be lacking in
motivation when they take on
Portugal in their Confederations
Cup opener in Russia.
But today’s clash will be particularly
meaningful for Raul Jimenez.
After all, his links with Portugal
extend far beyond the Group A
meeting.
The Mexico No.9 is an idol at
Portuguese giants Benfica.
He has scored a number of
crucial goals in helping the
Eagles win back-to-back
Primeira Liga titles.
So there can be few better at
analysing the European
champions ahead of the clash.
“It’s going to be special,” he
said.
“I’ll be up against three of
my club-mates and a lot of
other players I come up against
every year.
“I can see it being a very
competitive game and if we’re
going to win it, we need to keep
their great strikers in check.”
Jimenez, 26, is confident his side
can keep danger-man Cristiano
Ronaldo, who is rumoured to be

eyeing the exit door at Real Madrid, quiet at
the Kazan Arena.
He said: “It goes without saying that he’s a
great player. But we’re a great side too and I’m
sure we can stop him.
“We’re a tight-knit team and we really
understand all the different phases we have to
go through.
“When it’s time to train we train and when
it’s time to kick back and relax we do that.
“It doesn’t matter what your name is or the
league you play in – we’re all in this together
and we’re all fighting for the same objective.”
So does Jimenez feel he compares to
Ronaldo?
“I’ve never thought about it,” he said.
“But if I do, it is in the physical side of
things, like height and strength.
“Obviously, he’s done amazing things with
his clubs and the national team and I’d love to
be able to match that.
“My first big tournament was the
Confederations Cup in 2013 and I’ve got more
experience now.
“I have the belief that I have a lot to offer on
an individual and collective level.
“I’m coming here with my head held high
and with the idea of achieving big things.”

ies and top pops whose exploits have gone down in legend
■
THOMAS More, the
counsellor to Henry VIII,
refused to support the king
in his split from the Catholic
Church. Henry didn’t want to
execute his dear old mate
More, but sometimes a
psychopath’s gotta do what
a psychopath’s gotta do and
Thomas went to the block.
■
naughtiness with a nun and dreadful
debauchery. It was down to his daughter,
Maria, to try to rescue his reputation. Maria
escaped Russia a few years after her father’s
death and became a dancer, a cookbook
author and a lion tamer. (No, honestly.)
Tom More became Tom
No-More.
Thomas had been a good
father to his three daughters
and his oldest, Margaret
Roper, visited him in the
Tower.
After the execution, his
head was stuck on a pike at
London Bridge for a month.
Margaret bribed the man
who had been told to throw
her father’s head into the
Thames River. She pickled it,
and after she died her
husband had Tom’s head
buried with his body.
So, daughters, do your
duty and pickle your dad’s
head.
PHILIP II of Macedon was a ruthless
warrior. He once drowned 3,000
enemy prisoners of war rather than keep
them captive. No Geneva Convention
flim-flam for foul Phil. Then he made the
mistake of going to the theatre where he
was assassinated (a bit like Abraham
Lincoln but without the stovepipe hat).
It’s hard to feel sorry for him.
The assassin (his own bodyguard) was
killed and his corpse crucified. He was
in no fit state to say who was behind the
plot. Many historians think the man who
ordered this contract killing was Phil’s
own son – Alexander the Great.
Patricidal Alex made Phil a god, just to
show he cared.
Of course Alex went on to conquer the
world – with lessons in cruelty learned
from dear old dead dad. But Alex was a
fast-living, hard-drinking man. At the age
of 32 Alex drank too much wine and that
helped send him to join his dad-god in
Greek heaven. Sort of Alexander the
Grape.

Alexei, the son of Peter
the Great. Peter had
plenty of practice at
fatherhood as he had
14 children with his
two wives. But they
were a dysfunctional
family. Peter’s
half-sister (Sophia)
headed a rebellion
– Peter had the
rebels tortured,
executed and put
on public display.
Sophia was packed
off to a convent.
Then his son Alexei
seemed to be part of a
plot while he was
overseas. Peter said:
“Come home, son,
and I’ll not punish
you.” Alexei
returned and
confessed to a
plot against
his father
– he was
being
tortured at
the time, so
it’s not
surprising.
Peter wouldn’t want
to execute his own
son so Alexei did the
decent thing and died
in his prison cell.

Star Wars director’s weird family
THE LEGO BATMAN
MOVIE (U)
THE Dark Knight finally lightens up
in this riotous animated spoof from
the makers of The Lego Movie. The
brooding crimefighter (hilariously
voiced by Will Arnett) teams up with
an excitable Robin (Michael Cera) to
take down a very childish Joker
(Zach Galifianakis).There’s plenty of
action for kids, and some great
double-edged gags for grown-ups.
ANDY’S RATING: ★★★★
MOONLIGHT (15)
THIS year’s Oscar winner is one of
those rare films where every shot,
every line of dialogue and every
piece of music fits together perfectly.
But mostly, it’s the performances.
Three actors play Chiron in three
stages of his life – as a bullied
10-year-old, as a teen hiding his
sexuality and as a street dealer who
can’t afford to show weakness.
Gritty, touching and devoid of cliches.
ANDY’S RATING: ★★★★★
AFTERMATH (15)
ARNIE flexes his acting muscles in
this plodding, low-budget drama
about a Ukrainian immigrant

AFTER her pitch-black rape revenge
thriller Elle, Isabelle Huppert gets to
let her hair down in this charming
French comedy drama.
She plays lonely factory worker
Lilliane who makes pâté by day and
gets hammered in front of TV quiz
shows at night.
Her sense of adventure is re-awakened
when she meets a young co-worker and
amateur boxer called Jean (Kévin Azaïs).
The 22-year-old recognises her as the
French chanteuse who 30 years earlier
came second in Eurovision, narrowly
losing out to ABBA (no shame in that).
At first, Liliane tries to deny it but the
young buck won’t let it go. Eventually, he
persuades her to perform her old hit at a
party at his boxing club.
Soon the pair are enjoying a business
and personal relationship. But when Jean
quits boxing to mastermind her
comeback, her ex-husband and manager
Tony (Johan Leysen) creeps out of the
woodwork.
This gentle drama won’t feature in
Huppert’s greatest hits, but it’s charming,
amusing and nicely acted. The songs are
catchy too.

I DOUBT Star Wars fans will
be queueing round the block
to see this weepie about a
kooky single mum and her
precocious son.
Just in case any of them got past
that first paragraph, I’ll later
discuss Episode IX of the rebooted franchise, which will also be
directed by Colin Trevorrow.
It’s not all bad news. Clearly, he
isn’t afraid to mix things up.
To warm up for his journey
into deep space, he has made a
family drama that takes in
terminal illness, murder, video
game addiction, ukulele music,
cutesy comedy and child rape.
It seems Trevorrow really is
from a galaxy, far, far away. Just what
particular planet he’s on is something
you’ll be mulling over during this film’s
demented, distasteful and unbelievably
dreadful second half.
That’s not to say the opening 50 minutes are any good. They’re
horrible too, but in a much
more familiar way.
At first, we seem to be
watching one of those sickly
dramas about a child genius.
Little Henry (Jaeden Lieberher)
is a stock market whizz, an
inventor, medical expert, artist
and amateur lawyer.
In a subtle early scene, his
waitress mum Susan (Naomi “I need a

Hampstead 15
ANDY’S RATING:★★
In cinemas on Friday
PERHAPS The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel wasn’t
such a blessing after all. The 2011 Brit flick
raked in millions at the box office and seemed
to have ushered in a new age for quality
dramas aimed at older audiences.
Beautifully written ones like Quartet and
Song for Marion followed, but in recent years the
standard has dropped off markedly.
Joel Hopkins, the director of Hampstead (and who
also helmed the dire The Love Punch), doesn’t seem
to have much respect for his elders.
His second cynical grab for the “grey pound” is a
patronising affair which sees Diane Keaton’s kooky
widow finding love late in life with Brendan
Gleeson’s well-groomed tramp.
The film is very loosely based on the true story of
an Irish squatter who became the owner of a
£2million plot of land on Hampstead Heath in 2007.
It’s an interesting idea, but all the edges have been
sanded off by a witless, syrupy script and very bland
direction.
Here “Hermit Harry” has become witty, charming
Donald who lives a relatively sophisticated life in a
shabby chic shack in a picture postcard version of
north London.
Despite their best efforts Gleeson and Keaton can’t
bring their barely-written characters to life.

shooter video game – a skill that just
might come in handy later. Henry
tells her to put down the controller, which, in case we
haven’t got it already,
proves that this isn’t the
typical
mother/son
relationship.
The lad has a more
retro hobby. In his
unfeasibly
elaborate
treehouse, he has built
one of those mousetrapstyle machines that use a
system of levers, dominoes
and pool balls to dispense
sugary treats.
“You have to make sure you have a
failsafe,” he tells his adoring little
brother Peter (Jacob Tremblay). Again,
take note of this detail.
Perhaps, I had Star Wars on the
brain, but at this point I was
waiting for a fantastical
twist which would explain
the kid’s super-powers
and perhaps reveal the
identity of his absent
father (an alien or
perhaps even a Jedi).
I hadn’t expected to
see something horrible
playing out in a neighbouring bedroom.
After spying something
unholy through his binoculars (mercifully, Trevorrow cuts
away at the last moment), he is
convinced his classmate Christina
(Maddie Ziegler), inset left, is being
abused by her stepdad Glenn Sickleman (Dean Norris).
Amazingly, this isn’t the movie’s
most jarring scene.
A mid-point twist takes us on
a tear-jerking dash to hospital,
plonks Watts in a forest with a
sniper rifle and sees Sarah
Silverman’s
alcoholic
waitress, right, weirdly kiss
11-year-old Henry on the
lips.

it was time for the

to
start
taking some risks.

Taylor also demands to
know the truth.
KEEGAN’S
IN FOR A
GRILLING
During last Thursday night’s
episode,
viewers
finally
discovered that the troublesome
new Taylor clan were Keegan’s
family as they moved into
Albert Square.
And after Louise accused
Keegan of rape, viewers were left
shocked when Karen punched
Sharon in the face.
But as the fall-out continues and
Keegan admits to his mum that he lied,
Sharon decides to pay a visit to the
Taylors in a bid to find out what
really happened.
Terrified Louise is convinced that
Keegan had sex with her while she was
drunk and has been beside herself
with worry.
So Sharon asks Keegan to tell her
exactly what went on during the boozy
party, which is surprising considering
what happened the last time she
confronted the wayward teen.
An EastEnders insider said: “Karen

RHONA Goskirk dreads her
horrific rape ordeal becoming
public knowledge as the police start
to question her friends and
neighbours.
Distraught Rhona, who was
attacked by her twisted husband
Pierce Harris on their wedding night,
tells Vanessa Woodfield her fears.
She reveals she is worried people
might not believe her story.
Vanessa tries to reassure her pal,
as does her ex-husband Paddy Kirk
when he finally discovers what she
has been going through.
But with a police investigation
under way, Rhona starts to worry
whether she is doing the right thing.
An insider said: “The enormity of
pressing charges hits Rhona when
police start questioning villagers.
“She was so traumatised about
what happened that she only told
Vanessa.
“Rhona is beside herself with
worry and can’t stop thinking that
brood and that’s why she punched
Sharon after Keegan was accused of
rape.
“Louise was so drunk at her party that
she has no idea whether or not Keegan
had sex with her.
“He told his mum that he made the
whole thing up to get back at her, but
now that the police are involved it’s even
more complicated.
“Sharon decides to try to talk to Keegan
and his mum.
“The situation becomes heated but
Sharon does leave with some surprising
information about Keegan.”
BBC One viewers can watch the drama
during tomorrow night’s episode.

people might not believe what
happened. Paddy can’t believe it
when he finds out and immediately
offers her his support.
“She’s in a real bad place and is
struggling to cope. She tries her
best to forget about Pierce but when
her son Leo draws a family picture
that includes him she has to try to
explain to the youngster that he
won’t be coming back.
“The scenes are heartbreaking, but
she’s got a long way to go and sadly
she’ll start to question if she’s doing
the right thing pressing charges.
Vanessa urges her to stay strong but
she’s so fragile.”
Rhona confides in Vanessa this
Thursday on ITV.

discovering his lodger
Brian Packham is having
a fling with his ex-love
Cathy Matthews.

@SUSEHILL
The couple have been sneaking
around for weeks but, as our photo
shows, Roy is in for a shock when he
returns home early.
His flustered pal tells Roy he has “a
girlfriend” stuck in the bathroom and
Roy insists on helping out.
But then he spots Cathy’s coat hanging on the rack.
As viewers know Roy and Cathy’s
relationship ended on their wedding
day in December. Heartbroken Cathy
was devastated when she found out
that Roy didn’t love her and was only
marrying her to keep his word.
Following a conversation with
neighbour Yasmeen Nazir, hapless
Brian realises that it would probably
be best to come clean with Roy about
his feelings for Cathy.
But before he can get the chance Roy
catches them together.
Everyone will have to wait to see
how he reacts and what it means for
their friendship.
A Corrie insider said: “Roy broke
Cathy’s heart but he was still grieving
for his wife Hayley.
“Cathy has moved on with Brian
and things have been going really
well for them.
“They’ve enjoyed a string of dates
but have sworn everyone to secrecy as
they don’t know how Roy will react.
But after watching their antics for a
couple of weeks Yasmeen decides to
give Brian a piece of her mind.
“It really makes him think about the
situation and he decides it would be
best to come clean. Sadly, he doesn’t
get the chance.”
Tune in to the ITV soap on Friday to
find out how Roy reacts.

dad Shane, returns to the village to the
delight of Goldie.
But his twin brother Hunter starts to
worry when he reveals he has a plan
to get their mum her money back.
Scheming Prince starts having extra
lessons with teacher Louis Loveday in
a bid to get his school work back
on track.
During one of his tutoring sessions
he steals the spare keys to the flat
and viewers will start to realise what he
has planned.
He later returns to the pad in a dark
hoodie and uses a scarf to cover his
face.
Prince starts searching for jewellery
but Simone comes home early and
catches him in the act. Terrified of being
caught, he rushes out of the flat pushing
Simone
to
the
ground
as
he
runs past.
Viewers will have to wait to see whether
or not Simone has recognised the masked
intruder.
A Hollyoaks insider said: “Prince
wants to make it up to his mum. She’s
lost her savings and he wants to be able
to give her some money.
“Hunter quickly realises that he’s up to
something but doesn’t know what.
“Prince decides to use his tutoring
lessons as a way of getting his hands on
some cash.
“It’s a pretty low act but he doesn’t
count on Simone coming home early.
Luckily he’s got his hood up and has
covered his face with a scarf.
“Simone only saw him for a few seconds
but with Prince due to have more lessons
with Louis it’s going to take some doing
for him not to get caught.”
Channel 4 viewers can watch the
drama a week on Thursday.
ROB Mills feared a backlash after his
■
character drugged fans’ favourite Susan
Kennedy.
The former Australian Idol star was signed up
for a guest stint as twisted teacher Finn Kelly
who is suffering from a brain aneurism.
Rob said: “Finn is desperate to leave a legacy
and change the education
system.
“It’s just a shame it’s
happening at the
expense of Susan. Everyone loves her and I must
admit I was worried about
how the fans would react.”
Watch out for Finn’s exit
from the Channel 5 show
later this summer.

HAVANA
After many of the sanctions
against America’s near neighbour were lifted, there was
a fear there would soon be a
McDonald’s and a Starbucks on
every corner of this flamboyant
tropical paradise.
Fortunately, this hasn’t happened
and there is only one set of golden
arches on the 600-mile island – at the
Guantanamo Bay US naval base.
The Caribbean’s biggest island is
still under Communist rule and just
because departed leader Fidel
Castro’s brother Raul has relaxed
things a little since 2008, its uniqueness is still there.
Cuba’s grand capital city of
Havana is home to more than two
million people – and 60,000 pristine
classic American cars.
Shiny
Buicks,
Chevrolets,
Plymouths and Corvettes – all from
the 1950s and 60s – are everywhere,
and they’re worth an extraordinary
amount of money.
No parts for them are manufactured nowadays so the resourceful
islanders fashion spares themselves,
welding anything together, even
household objects, to keep these
prize possessions in top nick. The
cars are all part of the attraction of
Havana and there are many specialist tours which cruise the city streets
in these now iconic automobiles.
Alternatively, take a leisurely
stroll around the traffic-free plazas,
the crumbling old suburbs and gaze
up at the shells of former architectural riches – you’ll feel an instant
connection with the past.
For a real taste of the city,
restaurants such as Paladar
Los Mercaderes in Old
Havana serve succulent
meats and seafood in
exotically-spiced
sauces to the sounds
of live Cuban music.
La Guarida, which
means the refuge or
hideout, is set on the
third floor of a faded
mansion in Havana
Centro. Head up the
marble stairs, edge past
the white linens drying on
washing lines and you’ll find

east of Havana on a 15-mile sliver of
land is the classic Caribbean-style
resort of Varadero.
At the end of this stretch is the
five-star Iberostar Varadero hotel,
built in a mock colonial style on

something more unusual, we headed
to La Coincidencia, a vast organic
farm and sculpture park in the
Matanzas province west of Varadero,
owned by Hector Correa.
His sons busy themselves creating
decorative terracotta pottery and
plates, which keep the farm going
during tough economic times.
But, as Hector reminded us, the
pottery and artistic creations are
just business – the farming is the art.
He prised open one of his beehives,
handed me a straw and invited me to
drink honey straight from the pods
in the hive.
Thankfully, the thousands of bees
ready to kamikaze were a species
called Mayan bees which are stingless. They were just a bit angry I was
raiding their home!

HATS off (both of them)
to Michael Dunlop for
winning the prestigious
Senior TT last Friday.
Legendary DJ Carl Cox,
pictured with Dunlop, left, is a
massive bike racing fan and
invests a great deal of his
hard-earned into the sport.
■
He’s been backing the
Ulsterman this year.
It was Dunlop’s first TT on
Suzuki’s new GSX-R1000.
He stamped his mark on the
race after his main rival Ian
Hutchinson crashed out.
The accident caused the
race to be red-flagged but
Dunlop took victory in the
re-started four-lapper.
Hutchinson broke his left
femur in six places and
smashed his already pretty
wrecked left ankle to
smithereens.

SPRUCED UP
Revamp for
the Qashqai
TWEAKS:
■
Nissan
have brought
Qashqai right
up to date
WHEN you’ve got the UK’s
third best-selling car, it
doesn’t pay to monkey with
the format too much.
That’s where Nissan found itself
with its Sunderland-built Qashqai
– a car in need of a few tweaks and
a spot of fettling to bring everything up to date but not a total
redesign.
Speaking of Sunderland, the fact
that the Qashqai is screwed together
on the banks of the Wear makes it
the best-selling UK-built car on
these shores.
I’ve just got back from Austria
where we drove the new version
around that suspiciously neat and
tidy country for a whole day.
With Austrian roads as
smooth as milled glass, it’s
hard
to
strike
direct
comparisons. But if the
initial impressions are to be
believed, the team behind
the revamp have gone the
right way.
Let’s start on the outside.
Generally, the styling has
lost that odd humpy-lumpy
front wing configuration
and had a nose and arse
job.
It’s improved the looks of
Qashqai no end in my
opinion, making it look more
European. More modern.
The
new
conk
features
concealed cameras for the 360
degree parking system, daytime
running lights and – in Tekna and
Tekna + versions – all-new LED headlight systems.
The bonnet now features what
Nissan describe as the tightest creases
ever produced on their European
manufacturing equipment.
Corby trouser press people, eat your
hearts out.
The new rear bumper incorporates
flush-mounted parking sensors and
the underbody has a smoother profile
to reduce drag.
Inside, the tweaks are subtle but
instantly noticeable. The fat, flatbottomed steering wheel is the first
thing to strike you. The second is the
tactile softness of the leather in the
range-topping versions.
I managed to drive the 1.6 petrol and
1.6 diesel versions – the latter with a
CVT auto ’box. The petrol is without
doubt the most refined, with minimal
engine noise intruding into the cabin.
The diesel version has more lowdown pull but the slightly hunty automatic gearbox always seems to allow
the engine to work harder than it
needs to, resulting in more cabin
noise. Petrol and six-speed manual
gearbox is my choice here. Ride and

handling is impressive. Even on the
19in alloy wheels and with a
massively heavy, full-length glass
roof, spring and damping rates strike
a good compromise between body
control and comfort. Our battered
UK roads will be the ultimate test,
though.
But it’s in noise, vibration and
harshness where the most noticeable
of the dynamic improvements have
been made. Different glass, better
door seals, new sealants and sounddeadening materials have made a big
difference to the general feeling of
quality.
The steering system has also had
upgrades with what Nissan dub
“Active Return Control”, which is
supposed to generate a more natural
feel to the self-centering of the
steering. Call me a cack-handed
cloth-head but I didn’t notice any
change. Speaking of technology, later
this year Nissan will launch their
semi-autonomous driving system on
Qashqai. With lane assist, active
cruise,
autonomous
emergency
braking and a plethora of cameras,
all the tools for the job are practically
there already.
But that’s then. This is now.
The new Qashqai comes with a
choice of two diesel engines (1.5 and
1.6) and two petrol offerings (1.2 and
1.6). There are five trim levels: Visia,
Acenta, N-Connecta, Tekna and
Tekna +.Going to forget all those
names? Yes, me too. The range starts
at £19,295.
With over two million already built
and sold, this car is a big deal for
Nissan.
And it’s designed, developed and
built in Britain. That’s a compelling
argument in itself…

EING someone
who makes a
living by writing
about
saving
money, I come
across quite a lot of sites
and publications who do
very similar things.
To be fair there are some fantastic
sites out there with a host of useful
information about making the most
of your money.
Equally, there is some utter
rubbish too.
Let me share some of the most
cringeworthy money-saving tips I
have found over the years.
I don’t want to name and shame
the sites as I know some of them
personally but, really guys, some of
these are just ridiculous.
1. Make lipstick out of crayons.
I don’t use the stuff myself but this
just has to be the dumbest thing
I have seen in a while – and I just
watched Donald Trump make a
speech.
2. Leave Tupperware at work to
take any free company meals home
with you. Just no. If you have a job
where meals are provided as part of
the job, then you don’t need to stoop
OU can get a free child’s ticket (age
16 and under) to one of more than 35
London theatre shows when you buy
a full-priced adult ticket via the Kids Week
website. Shows include School of Rock,
Mamma Mia and Wicked in August (some
have excluded days). Google “Kids Week”.
SOME OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS WAYS TO LOOK AFTER THE PENNIES
Cash-saving tips that
will make you cringe
so low. If there is leftover food a
better thing to do would be to donate
it to a homeless charity instead.
3. Get a gym membership so you
never have to shower at home. This
tip stinks, both in practical and
money-saving terms – it simply isn’t
logical at all.
4. Separate your toilet roll into its
two separate parts to make it last
twice as long. The consequences of
this one for anyone who tries it are
well deserved and can only result in
more paper being used.
5. If you want to buy a fancy new
TV, get a payday loan. This is the
worst tip I have seen in my
professional life. The author needs a
swift kick up the arse.
6. If it’s yellow, let it mellow, if it’s
brown flush it down. Even the
narrative of this one makes me
green around the gills. Flush every
time and avoid having time off work
with dysentery.
7. Use vouchers and discounts on
dates…and never marry, as all of
your dates will run a mile when they
see how cheap you are. You’ll save a
fortune on rings and the wedding.
8. Return all gifts you are given and
find them cheaper online or in sales.
You would have to be a special kind
of person to do this.
9. Re-use paper towels. I know some
one who actually does this. He hangs
them out to dry once he has used
them.
10. Stop using taps and collect your
own drinking water. Why not shack
up in the woods with a pack of wild
dogs, too – get a grip.

backwards, up, down or
diagonally, but if you find
them and cross them out,

As usual, we’re not

do all have a strong

DAILY STAR SUNDAY, June 18, 2017
HEALTH REPORT - BY TOM LEATHER
L
ionel is 65 years old,
he’s from the East End
and drove buses for 27
years. Doing simple
everyday tasks such as sleeping,
eating and playing with his 21
grandchildren became a real
problem due to a tight chest from
shortness of breath. Doing these
tasks would take his breath away,
meaning he would have to sit
down to get his breath back and
this led to worry and a general
feeling of helplessness. “I’m
putting my ill health down to the
fumes from my job. My breathing
has got progressively worse and
means I’m not able to walk far.”
“…I felt very
breathless most of
the time.”
Lionel saw an advert within
his daily newspaper promoting
the drug-free, Aerosure Medic.
“It turned me in my tracks the
advert did, I will try that.” It is
a dual-action breathing device
which helps provide relief from
a shortness of breath by helping
to clear the chest and lungs of
trapped stale air which gives the
feeling of a shortness of breath
and replaces it with fresh air, plus
helps improve breathing fitness
by strengthening the lungs. Since
using the medical device he has
seen a dramatic improvement in his
breathing and general health. “The
missus helped me get it and it was
one of the best things I ever got.”
RELIEF FROM A SHORTNESS OF BREATH!
“It’s helped
my breathing
no end,”
no more huffing
& puffing for Lionel!
Lionel’s story is like thousands
of others in the UK who suffer
from a shortness of breath
due to medical conditions
(e.g. COPD), smoking, being
unfit or just the time of year!
BY TOM LEATHER
about his daily routine. “I’ve
got no worries of any sort of
shortness of breath. I’ve told my
NHS COPD nurse about it.”
“I don’t wheeze at night,
that was annoying for How does it work?
Aerosure Medic works by rapidly
the missus.”
“I followed the regime as was
advised and it’s helped my
breathing no end. I can walk
a lot quicker, short fast paces,
where I wouldn’t do that before,
or if I did, it would tire me out,
I don’t get so tired.” Its discreet
design means Lionel carries his
Aerosure with him when going
ADVERTISEMENT
increasing the flow of air in and
out of the airways. This vibrates
the chest wall to work the lungs,
leading to increased respiratory
fitness and helping you to
breathe easier. Its patented dualaction technology combines the
benefits of two clinically proven
technologies Inspiratory Muscle
Training (IMT) and Oscillating
Reader Offer
- Call to see if you can claim VAT RELIEF -
“…It helps charge me
up... thank-god for my
Aerosure”
Lionel can now get through his
day without tight chest due to
shortness of breath and without
the worry - “the thing I love
about my Aerosure is it helps
charge me up when I go and see
my grandchildren and they all
want to come and play, it’s now
all jump-on-grandad time, thankgod for my Aerosure.”

LADY
Ascot double bid
JET-HOOVED Lady Aurelia
is poised to explode at
Royal Ascot this week.
The American speedball was the
star of last year’s meeting with
her jaw-dropping victory in the
Queen Mary Stakes.
Trained in the US by Wesley Ward,
she took off like a bullet from a gun
when Frankie Dettori pulled the
trigger two furlongs out.
On Tuesday, Lady Aurelia will line
up against older and stronger
horses in the King’s Stand Stakes
as she bids to double up on her
staggering success of 2016.
She is the star of Ward’s squad of
10 US challengers who will try to
take some of Ascot’s big prizes back
across the Atlantic.
He has also been talking up the
chance of Arawak in the Coventry
Stakes on Tuesday and Happy Like
A Fool in the Queen Mary on
Wednesday. America has replaced
■ by JASON HEAVEY
Australia as the dominant foreign
force at the royal meeting.
And there might be even more in
2018 as Ascot is being aired on NBC
for the first time this year.

ROYAL ASCOT
Tuesday
RIBCHESTER landed the
Lockinge at Newbury
despite everything going
against him and he can
follow up last year’s
Jersey Stakes win in the
the Queen Anne (2.30).
A big hulk of a horse, we
will probably not see the
best of him until next year
but he looks far superior
to his rivals.
DECLARATIONOFPEACE impressed on
the clock when winning
his maiden and is the
Aidan O’Brien flyer to
note in the Coventry
Stakes (3.05),
while CHURCHILL looks hard
to oppose in
the St James’s
Palace Stakes
(4.20).
The Ascot
Stakes (5.00)
offers more
each-way value in
the form of OCEANE
at around the 16-1 mark.
Wednesday
In the hope that he runs in
the opening Jersey
Stakes, as opposed to the
Commonwealth Cup,
DREAM CASTLE is my
nap of the meeting.
He made Barney Roy
look slow between the 2f
and 1f markers in the
Greenham when he
whistled to the front only
to be outstayed.
Wesley Ward has a
brilliant record with his
juveniles and his HAPPY
LIKE A FOOL is
rumoured to be his best
yet and is expected to
land the Queen Mary
Stakes (3.05). The best
each-way play in the Royal
Hunt Cup (5.00) is the
progressive EL VIP after
he hosed up in a fair
contest at Newcastle last
time out.
Thursday
ORDER OF ST GEORGE
was given a horrendous
ride by Ryan Moore
(below) in last year’s Gold
Cup but still won.
He may be short in the
betting but should double
up. Stepping up to 1m 4f
looks the natural course
for WEEKENDER in the
King George V Handicap
(5.35).
Friday
The Commonwealth Cup
(3.40) could be
the race of the

am willing to
take on

clocked some seriously
good splits last time out.
FRONTIERSMAN
could not handle the

Saturday
OUTBACK TRAVELLER
(5.00) can win back-toback Wokinghams granted

IN ASSOCIATION WITH
LIMIT FLOP KEYS 1
The WSOP $10K FLH Championship kicks off
tomorrow. In Limit Hold’em, there are some key
things you need to pay attention to on the flop
that can help you decide how to play it.
Seamour up
for the Cup
ELLISON EYES OZ GLORY
MELBOURNE
MISSION:
Seamour is
being targeted
for the big
prize Down
Under by his
Malton trainer
Brian Ellison
(below)
The first thing to observe is how many players
are seeing the flop with you and how much
action took place before the flop. If you’re up
against a lot of competition, say four or more
opponents, you don’t want to be bluffing
the flop. Against three or less other players,
bet your top pairs and your big draws to
see where you are. Heads-up, either get
aggressive and go for the jugular or slow
your play down to get more chips into the pot,
depending on your read of the player and the
developing board texture.
PLO MISTAKES 2
As we introduced yesterday, there are common
mistakes PLO microstakes players make that you
can profitably exploit, like:
--- Calling Too Many Raises: Linked to playing
too many hands, players who see pot-sized raise
calling potential in 50% or more of their hands are
practically begging to donate funds to you.
--- Big Pair Worship: Maybe they weren’t breast
fed enough, but some players fall in love with
a premium pair and will raise, 3bet, 4bet or put
everything in with Jacks or better with no back-up
whatsoever.
--- Idiot Ending: Those players who chase non-nut
draws or take aim at the weak end
of straights (even on flushbearing boards) deserve
a free education… at the
University of Joey Essex.

■ EXCLUSIVE by JASON HEAVEY
YORKSHIRE’S Brian Ellison is
targeting the Melbourne Cup
with his stable star Seamour
who he has described as the
best horse he has ever
trained.
He wants to become the first UK
trainer to land the famous “race that
stops a nation”.
But Seamour has two massive dates
in Britain before he makes the long trip
Down Under in November.
The six-year-old will first try to
make it third time lucky in the
Northumberland Plate next month at
Newcastle.
The horse was mugged on the line in
last year’s Plate after looking certain to
win at the furlong pole. He will then be
targeted at the Ebor at York in August.
Ellison,
who
was
born
on
Northumberland Plate day in 1952,
said: “We took Seamour to Pontefract
the other day for a gallop and he is
absolutely flying.
“The plan is the Plate, the Ebor and
the Melbourne Cup.
“For the last two years he has been
drawn so wide in the Plate that he has
virtually been in the car park. He just
needs a good draw for a change.
“Last year, although people said he
was unlucky, he ran four horses wide
the whole way round and still got in a
winning position.
“I need him to go up 7lb to get in the
Melbourne Cup.
“He would cope with the travelling.
He is a sensible enough horse. He would
have a massive chance of winning.”
Last year Ben Curtis and Seamour
looked all over the winners after
bursting clear two furlongs out in the
Plate, also known as the “Pitmen’s
Derby”, but he was mugged on the line
by Godolphin’s Antiquarium.
The trainer said he had not decided
who would ride the horse this time.
Ellison, who has trained more than
1,000 winners from his dual purpose
yard in Malton, North Yorks, has had a
long-held ambition to triumph in the
Melbourne Cup.
The desire remains despite not having
the best of luck in his previous forays
Down Under.
In 2005 he was preparing Carte
Diamond for a crack at the race when
the horse collided with a rail during a
gallop and had to be scratched.
In 2011 he fulfilled an ambition when
Moyenne Corniche, who had won that
year’s Ebor, and Saptapadi ran in the
cup but never landed a blow.
“Seamour is the best I’ve trained. He
is the best chance I’ll have,” he said.
APOLLO LANDING FOR EASTERBY AT YORK
TIM EASTERBY has made the
★
Catherine Kinloch Handicap
his own in recent years and
Golden Apollo continued his run
at York yesterday.
The improving three-year-old
enjoyed the frenetic pace before
coming through and getting up in
the dying strides.
It was a fifth success in the
race for Easterby and Golden
Apollo was backing up a victory
at Pontefract just five days earlier.
Easterby said: “He was always
a nice horse last year. I was never
★
bothered about the draw in one.
I was very happy drawn there.
“He’s a horse that
comes off the
bridle and picks up,
so I told James not
to panic but he rode
a really good race.
“I’d like to run him
in the Ayr Gold Cup
one day but it would
have to be soft.”
Meanwhile, Fran
Berry is leaving his
position as stable jockey to
★
★
Ralph Beckett by mutual
agreement so he can ride as a
freelance.
Berry joined
Beckett ahead of
the 2016 Flat season,
one that saw him ride
a record number of
winners for the
Kimpton Down
Stables handler.
Berry said: “I have
enjoyed riding for
Ralph Beckett and his
owners as stable jockey. I wish
★
★
Ralph, his owners and the team at
Kimpton the very best for the
future.”
“Since moving to the UK, I’ve
built up some very good
relationships with many trainers
and owners and I’m really looking
forward to the future.”
Beckett said: “It has been
agreed by mutual consent to
discontinue the current
arrangement of Fran Berry (left)
as stable jockey. Both Fran and I
feel that this is the right decision.”

IT’S JUSTIN
TIME
Thomas in
Dominant Jo
flows into final
BRITISH No.1 Johanna
Konta booked a place in
today’s final of the Aegon
Open in Nottingham with
a 6-2 7-5 win over
Magdalena Rybarikova.
Top seed Konta, 26
(below) will play Donna
Vekic for the big prize
after the Croatian beat
fifth seed Lucie
Safarova from
Czech Republic
in the other
semi-final.
Konta said: “It
feels pretty
good and I’m
really happy to
have made it to
the end of the week.
“It was very humid and
the moisture from the
grass comes up, so it’s
surprisingly hot and I just
did my best to really deal
with the conditions.”
Konta maintained her
record of having yet to
drop a set in the
tournament as she closed
in on her first WTA title on
home soil.
She was quickly into her
the mix after
record round
JUSTIN THOMAS equalled
the lowest score in major
championship history in
stunning fashion to surge
into contention for the US
Open at Erin Hills.
Thomas, 24, fired nine birdies and
an eagle on the 18th to card a
nine-under-par 63 and take over the
clubhouse lead on 11-under par, two
shots clear of compatriots
Brian Harman and Brendan Steele
and England’s Tommy
Fleetwood.
His score is the lowest
in relation to par in the
history of the US
Open, surpassing the
eight-under 63 carded
by Johnny Miller to
win at Oakmont in
1973.
Amazingly it could
have been even better
if not for bogeys on
the fourth and 10th, as
well as a missed eagle
putt from six feet on the 15th
after he had driven the green on
the 288-yard par four.
“The majors have a different feel
and sound to the roars and to hear
the crowd go crazy when I holed that
putt on 18 was really cool,” said
Thomas, whose back-to-back wins in
Hawaii in January included an
opening 59 in the Sony Open.
“But more important than that was
just to get myself in contention to
win the tournament.
“It was awesome to go out and play
a solid round of golf. I had some loose
tee shots but the putter got hot and
it was a lot of fun.”
Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy (above)

rhythm, breaking
Rybarikova in the fifth
game of the match.
She did not look back,
breaking the Slovakian
again shortly afterwards
to confidently take the
opening set 6-2.
Konta looked to be
cruising as she
broke in the first
game of the
second set.
But to
Rybarikova’s
credit, she
immediately
hit back.
Temperatures
continued to soar and
there was a break in play
as medics helped a
female spectator who was
struggling with the heat,
with Konta handing over
her umbrella.
The set went with serve
until the 11th game when
a double fault from
Rybarikova gifted Konta
the advantage before she
served out the match.

another US Open cut. The Northern
Irishman finished five over par after
36 holes, meaning he failed to make
the weekend by four shots.
And his performance prompted
Steve Elkington, winner of the 1995
USPGA Championship, to tweet:
“Rory is so bored playiing golf...
without Tiger the threshold is
prolly 4 majors with 100mill in
bank.”
McIlroy could not resist hitting
back at the Australian and
posted a picture of his
career stats along with
the words: “More like
200mil...not bad for a
“bored” 28 year old...
plenty more where
that came from.”
That was not the
end of the dispute,
though, as ‘The Elk’
(above) added: “new

It was another US Open
to forget for McIlroy, who has
missed the cut for the second
successive year. Over the course of
his two rounds in Wisconsin he had
eight bogeys and two double bogeys.
The four-time Major winner plans
to play the Travellers Championship
this week before moving on to the
Irish and Scottish Opens as he
prepares for The Open at Royal
Birkdale next month.
Among yesterday’s early starters
were a number of Major champions,

Tom cashes in
on Chaz crash
TOM SYKES won a
dramatic, incident-packed
opening race in the Rimini
seventh round of World
Superbikes at Misano,
finishing ahead of Alex
Lowes, with series leader
and reigning double
champ Jonathan Rea third.
For Sykes (below) it was
a second victory of
the season and the
most unexpected,
as for much of
the race he had
run back in
fourth or fifth
place.
But as early
leader Michael van
der Mark tipped off
and then in the closing
stages Marco Melandri
crashed out of third, the
title winner of 2013 was in
contention.
Ahead of him Chaz
Davies was leading
halfway round the final lap
but then his bike swerved
and the Ducati rider was
down. Rea, right behind
him, had nowhere to go,
hitting Davies, going down
himself but then wrestling
his bike back on track.
Sykes rode through the
incident to take the victory
for Kawasaki but
then on the
slow-down lap,
he stopped to
check on
Davies – being
moved to the
medical centre
for treatment
on a back injury.
“We have to be
happy with the result –
I rode to my limits and
stayed there. I thought I
was settling for third but
then I saw Chaz and
Jonathan go down,” said
Sykes, now within 46
points of team-mate Rea
in the title stakes.
LUKE MOSSEY is well
placed to take the lead

the five-weight world champ is still a

“He’s a pugilist of the

McGregor, who is too inexperienced at
boxing. He can’t use his other styles.
“I wouldn’t buy it on pay-per-view – but I
would be interested in the result. To me, I
know who is going to win already, so there’s
no point in watching it.”
But Lewis, whose career ended in 2003, sees
the appeal in the fight despite McGregor’s
inexperience in the professional boxing ring.
He added: “I don’t believe it would damage
boxing because it is always going to be about a
man wanting to fight another man – and
people will always want to know the result.
“I love Bruce Lee and the other
disciplines and when he fought against
other fighters, you wanted to see the
differences. I can see the appeal.”
Mayweather is still the WBC’s
champion emeritus and the
world
governing
body’s
president Mauricio Sulaiman
is not ruling out sanctioning
the fight with some sort of
title – perhaps their Diamond
belt – on the line.
He said: “I’m not against
sanctioning it for something
like the Diamond title. Of
course, this is a WBC board
decision but we have to
celebrate that boxing is having
world attention regardless.
“Mayweather
retired
as
champion so he was awarded the
champion emeritus status.
“He was great, an icon for the
sport. Now he has decided to
return and fight a

superstar so it’s
difficult to
evaluate.”

“We are all very disappointed as

“You always feel deflated after
there has been such a big build-up

“The manner of the defeat was

“We have

England have made six changes to
the squad that faced India in May.
Lancashire

Liam
Livingstone
and
Hampshire
leg-spinner Mason Crane are among
five uncapped players in the party
who should be given a chance.
Livingstone is an exciting
prospect who can step up from his
impressive displays for the Lions,
while Crane impressed in the
North-South series in March.
Meanwhile, former England
all-rounder Paul Collingwood
believes opener Jason Roy will
bounce back from recent struggles
in the T20 battles with the Proteas.
Surrey star Roy was dropped for
the defeat by Pakistan and Colly
said: “Every player goes through
these trots – Sachin Tendulkar,
Brian Lara, everybody – and it’s
just unfortunate that his came
when it did.
“Jason has that X factor and it
is just a matter of everything
clicking again. He just needs to get
an innings going well and the
confidence will return.”
And the evidence was indeed
there yesterday when Roy struck

JASON ROY recaptured his form as
Surrey overwhelmed Worcestershire
Rapids by 153 runs to reach the
Royal London One-Day Cup Final for
a third consecutive year.
The opener top scored with 92
as Surrey amassed 363 for seven
in their 50 overs after electing to
bat at New Road.
It was in sharp contrast to his
struggles in recent weeks with

England which saw him being
axed from the Champions Trophy
semi-final defeat against Pakistan
at Cardiff last week.
Roy received excellent support from
Mark Stoneman, Kumar Sangakkara
and Ben Foakes as Surrey posted a
total which always looked beyond
Worcestershire, who will be
disappointed they failed to reproduce
the form that had seen them top the
North Group.
Surrey captain Gareth Batty capped
a successful return to his former
county with five for 40 – his best List
A figures for the Brown Caps.
Moeen Ali briefly threatened to
repeat the performance of England
team-mate Roy.
But once he had departed for 36
only Brett D’Oliveira and
Ross Whiteley offered any sort of
resistance with half-centuries as the
Rapids were dismissed for 210 in
the 34th over.
Now Batty will be hoping his side

Don’t be

– Kohli
■ by GARY FITZGERALD
VIRAT KOHLI has warned
his players not to be a
bunch of twitterers if they
want to hammer arch
rivals Pakistan today.
The India captain and
world’s No.1 ODI batsman
wants to avoid any
potential social media
distractions which might
stop his men focusing
fully on retaining the ICC
Champions Trophy.
India thrashed Pakistan
earlier in the competition
and start hot favourites at
The Oval today.
But Kohli is concerned
his Twitter-loving players
could take their eye off
the ball. He said: “Our
biggest challenge is to
stay off social media.
“Honestly, I know it
sounds funny but it is so
important to stay away
from those things.
“They have to connect
with things that really
matter – things that a
sportsman needs to take
care of in the build-up to a
huge occasion.
“I know it’s tough to do
so but keeping clear of
Twitter and the other stuff
means you can stay in a
good zone and mindset.
“We have an important
game of cricket coming up
and to do our best we
must 100 per cent ready.
“When you are calm and
composed mentally you
play your best.”
Kohli, 28, thrives in the
pressure cooker of being
the sporting idol of 1.3
billion cricket fans. That is
how many Indians will be
hoping he can power them
to victory in what will be a
heated atmosphere.
He has amassed more
than 8,000 runs in 183
ODIs since taking over
from Sachin Tendular as
India’s No.1 cricketing son.
He said: “I’ve had to deal
with all that comes with
being captain and opening
batsman for a number of
years now. I honestly don’t
think of those things when
I step on to the field.”
Kohli insists the Pakistan
side who broke England’s
hearts in a crushing
semi-final victory are more
dangerous than the team
India beat at Edgbaston in
the group stage.
He said: “That game has
no relevance now.”
Pakistan skipper Sarfraz
Ahmed is confident the win
over Eoin Morgan’s men
can be the springboard to
lifting the trophy.
He said: “Beating
England the way we did
showed just how much
talent there is in this side.
“We are playing our best
cricket at the best time of
the tournament.”

because the Wallabies had

Townsend (above).
“If you have to defend

a team as brilliant in
attack as that you need

“And that is what this

PRIZE-WINNING
MARO: Itoje staked a
Test claim with a try
while Halfpenny (right)
didn’t miss a kick
The Wales full-back has yet to miss a
kick on tour and landed six penalties and
a conversion in Rotorua.
And that should seal him a Test start
after Stuart Hogg was ruled out with a
fractured eye socket.
Maro Itoje’s try, a penalty try and
Halfpenny’s boot did the damage and
calmed the tourists’ nerves after the
midweek defeat by Highlanders.
And the outlook became even brighter
after the match when coach Warren
Gatland revealed Owen Farrell’s thigh
injury is not as serious as first feared.
“We are hopeful that Owen will be okay
for the first Test,” said Gatland of the
quadriceps injury Farrell picked up in
training.
“It was precautionary leaving
him out against the Maori. At a
pinch he could probably have
played but it was important
we didn’t take the risk and
put him out there.”
But flanker Ross
Moriarty has
been ruled
out of the
tour with a

claimed players from England and Ireland
would end up too jet-lagged to join the
tour from Argentina and Japan.
The Lions will put their new recruits on
the bench for Tuesday’s Chiefs clash in
Hamilton to protect their front-line 23
ahead of Saturday’s big game in Auckland.
Gatland added: “We found the first
10 days very
difficult
in
terms of jet-lag
and tiredness.
“The players that
came from Auckland
and Australia will be able
to fit quickly into this time
zone.”
The Maori stunned the Lions
19-13 in 2005 but this time they
were wrestled into submission.
The tourists’ attack is still yet to
fire convincingly and they can
expect New Zealand – who
hammered Samoa 78-0 on Friday
– to offer a far stiffer challenge.
Promising breaks were undone
by a lack of killer instinct in a
frustrating first half for the
Lions, who still led 12-10 at the
break.
The only Maori try came
when winger George North
continued his indifferent
form by failing to cleanly
sweep up a kick. Nehe
Milner-Skudder
hacked on and Liam
Messam finished.

DROP-OUTS
Patton last-gasp miss KOs Wire
DECLAN PATTON condemned Warrington
to Challenge Cup heartbreak after missing
a last second drop-goal.
The kick, 20 metres out and virtually right in front of
the sticks, would have taken this dramatic quarter-final
into extra time.
Instead, Wigan sneaked into the last four thanks to an
earlier drop-goal from returning star Sam Tomkins.
But Patton was not the only Wolves player holding his
head in despair at the end.
They had passed up another dream chance two
minutes earlier when Wigan’s Joe Burgess kicked out
on the full after a Kurt Gidley try.
But Stefan Ratchford – who took the kicking duty off
Patton who had kicked five from five – sent his 50-metre
attempt wide of the post.
If he had kicked it, Warrington would have gone ahead
for the first time in the match and it would have been
difficult to see how Wigan could respond in time.
Wigan coach Shaun Wane admits he saw red when
Burgess made his potentially costly error.
He said: “I nearly ran on the pitch and punched him,
Warrington ...................... 26
Wigan............................... 27

about 40 times. If it had cost us I would be in a different
mood.”
Burgess escaped his coach’s wrath and Patton’s miss
as the hooter sounded made sure Wigan stay alive in
the cup.
But Wolves coach Tony Smith insisted neither of his
kickers should cop the blame. He said: “It is not down to
one person by any means.”
Smith also questioned whether Wigan were offside
when Patton took his attempt, saying: “Fingers crossed
they got it right.
“The day has to come where, if they are not onside,
they give a penalty. They were very fast, put it that
way.”
The two let-offs were a huge relief to Wane, who said:
“I was frustrated because we did enough to win by more
than one point. But we did some dumb things.”
Defeat leaves Warrington with only a survival fight in
Super League to concentrate on. They are struggling in
10th and look like a team low on confidence and ideas.
Not that Wigan were much better. They are also
finding life tough in the league, with a raft of injuries
leaving them down in eighth.
But they just had the edge here – despite doing their
best to repeatedly invite the Wolves back into the game.
Wigan had six big-hitters returning from injury and
suspension and they came out firing with two tries from
Burgess.
But Wolves levelled when Ryan Atkins twice grounded
kicks from Gidley and Patton, before Liam Marshall’s
try gave Wigan a 18-12 half-time lead.
George Williams landed a Wigan penalty but Andre
Savelio burst over to pull Warrington back to within two
points. John Bateman cruised through some soft defence
for a converted try and Tomkins landed a drop-goal to
give Wigan a seven-point cushion.
But Gidley’s 77th-minute try set up a thrilling finale,
only for Warrington to agonisingly miss out.
No shortcut to banned Barba’s debut
BEN BARBA will join up with St Helens
tomorrow but he is still unlikely to be
allowed to play before August.
Barba (left) who is arguably the most
exciting signing in Super League for years,
is banned for 12 matches after testing
positive for cocaine.
The full-back, 28, got caught last
November after Cronulla Sharks’ NRL
title-winning season.
He was sacked by the Aussie champions
and has since played for French rugby
union side Toulon.
But his rugby league ban still holds and
started when Saints registered him last month.
St Helens have played four games since,
meaning it will be August by the time his
suspension runs out.
Because it is not a UK anti-doping violation
Barba will be allowed to train with the squad.
And although Saints are still looking into ways
of beating the ban, the RFL insist it must be
upheld in this country, even though it was
imposed by the NRL.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield expect new
Australian signing Jordan Rankin, 25, to arrive
in the next few days.
The former Hull player has signed from Wests
Tigers for the remainder of this season.
Giants coach Rick Stone said: “He can play
anywhere from one to seven – and there are not
many players who can do that.”
JULIE STOTT
ADAM MILNER is flying
under the radar of
England’s selectors but
Castleford believe he is
their secret weapon.
And Tigers skipper
Michael Shenton is
also convinced the
loose-forward, 25, will
soon force his way into
Wayne Bennett’s thoughts.
His form will be a
timely reminder to
today’s Challenge Cup
quarter-final opponents,
holders Hull.
Shenton said: “Adam
has been absolutely
fantastic for us and
one of our stand-out
players this year.
“Inside the club we
thought he might get
an England call-up
because he’s one of the
form loose-forwards.
“It didn’t happen but I’m
sure his time will come
because he’s made a big
difference to our defence.”
Six Tigers players were
named in the latest
England training squad,
ahead of the World Cup
later this year, when it was
announced last month.
Centre Shenton, 30, is
one of them but it is the
form of 30-try winger Greg
Eden and scrum-half Luke
Gale that has really caught
the eye.
The threats posed by
fellow England squad
members Zak Hardaker,
Mike McMeeken and Paul
McShane have also helped
Cas top Super League
this year.
They are all players who
could play a key part in
today’s quarter-final at the
KCOM Stadium.
But Shenton believes
Hull should also be very
wary of Milner spoiling
their dream of getting
back to Wembley.
He said: “He’s gone from
playing hooker to No.13
and that’s had a big effect
on the way we defend.
“Adam runs straight, he
offers something different
and the way he carries the
ball has transformed us.
“He is starting to get the
plaudits he deserves but
we think the job he is
doing for us is fantastic.
“Everyone talks about
Zak, Galey, Greg Eden and
Greg Minikin but a lot of
what they do comes off
the back of what the big
guys are doing. They do
the tough stuff so the
backs can get the tries.”
Cas go into today’s tie
on the back of eight
straight wins since their
26-24 defeat at Hull in the
league in April.

a proud Scot
MATCHES between old rivals Scotland
and England are as important as
they come to Gordon Strachan.
So Harry Kane’s late leveller
for England last weekend
was rather painful for the
Scotland manager (right)
despite his pride in his
team’s display.
Strachan said: “I have
been involved in a lot of
these matches over the
years and know what they
mean to fans.
“My wife and I

■ by HARRY PRATT
WILLIAM GALLAS fears that his old club
Spurs will continue to struggle in the
Champions League next season.
The ex-French international, who also played
for Chelsea and Arsenal during more than a
decade in the English top flight, believes
Spurs’ current crop are still too raw and
inexperienced to thrive among
Europe’s elite.
Mauricio Pochettino’s troops
finished runners-up in the
Premier League last season,
winning rave reviews for being
entertaining and consistent in
their pursuit of champions
Chelsea.
But when it came to their bid to
conquer the cream of the continent, it
proved the total reverse.
Harry Kane and Co crashed out in the
Champions League group stages after two paltry
victories in six games – both against Russian
no-hopers CSKA Moscow.
The North Londoners, who played their home ties
at Wembley, then fared no better in the Europa
League as they were eliminated in embarrassing
fashion by Belgium minnows Gent.
Gallas, a member of the Spurs side that reached
the Champions League quarter-finals in 2010-11,
is far from optimistic there will be a significant
improvement next time round.
The ex-White Hart Lane centre-half, 39, said:
“It was a big shame what happened to them last
season but this Tottenham squad is a little too
young for the Champions League.
“Against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen in the
group games it showed that they needed more
experience.
“The Champions League is different to the
Premier League. You need experience, you
need to be more clever and stay focused.”
Wise heads were not something Tottenham
lacked under Harry Redknapp when stunning
some of the biggest clubs in Europe en route
to the quarter-finals six years ago.
In addition to blossoming Welsh winger
Gareth Bale, they had Croat ace Luka Modric,
Dutch star Rafael van der Vaart, ex-Liverpool
strikers Peter Crouch and Robbie Keane as well as
Gallas (below) at the back.
In stark contrast to that era, current boss Pochettino
has gone for younger talent in the transfer market.
Throw in the issues of playing at Wembley, which
will be Spurs’ home in all competitions next season,
and it is easy to be pessimistic about their chances.
“If you compare our squad back then with now, we
had many older and more experienced players,”
explained Gallas.
As for ending the national stadium jinx –
Spurs won once in five attempts at
Wembley last season – he is more
positive, adding: “Hopefully, they will
have learned from last season’s
experience – and be better for it.”
Spurs won 13 of their final 14
games last season and for the first
time in 22 years finished above
Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.
Gallas, a two-time title winner with
Chelsea, added: “Maybe they learned
from their mistakes this time.”

Ronaldo
set for a
long stay
From Back Page
Ronaldo in 2008, when it
was agreed that he would
move there a year later
after one final season at
Old Trafford.
And Calderon, Perez’s
predecessor, said: “I am
sure he will stay.
“He can play again for
the best club and I think
that club is Real Madrid.
“I can’t tell you what he
is doing but I hope he will
stay.”
It has been claimed in
Portugal that Ronaldo, 32,
wants to quit Spain after a
tax investigation was
launched against him and
that he feels Real are not
giving him enough
support.
That has triggered
transfer frenzy with United
and Paris Saint-Germain
strongly linked with
Portugal’s captain.
But United were privately
briefing yesterday that
they have no knowledge
of Ronaldo wanting to
return to Old Trafford.
And his affection for the
club means he would be
unlikely to consider an
offer from neighbours
Manchester City.
But as Ronaldo has four
years remaining on his
£365k-a-week Madrid
contract, which has a
buyout clause of
£874.88m, it would seem
unlikely that he will leave.
One of football’s top
transfer operators told the
Daily Star Sunday
yesterday: “Nobody in the
game can see Ronaldo
leaving Real Madrid.
“The most likely
scenario is that Mendes
will use Ronaldo’s
current upset to negotiate
an even better contract
from Real.”
Portugal team-mate
Andre Silva, meanwhile,
insists allegations of tax
fraud and transfer
speculation are NOT
affecting Ronaldo at
the Confederations Cup
in Russia.

meet Mexico in Kazan

ANTONIO CONTE is

defence of their title.
But he will be happier

deal for

■ by PAUL
HETHERINGTON
HARRY MAGUIRE hit the
financial jackpot when he
moved to Leicester last
week – and so did Hull.
The central defender saw
his wage jump from a
basic £18k-a-week to
£80k-a-week at Leicester.
And the relegated Tigers
received a
fee of
£17million
for a
player
who only
had a
year
remaining
on his
contract.
Other interested clubs,
including Tottenham,
Everton and Newcastle,
were prepared to pay
at most around £10m.
And Maguire, 24, would
probably have been
offered half in wages
what Leicester are
paying.
But Foxes boss
Craig Shakespeare
(above) wanted the
highly regarded
Maguire through the
door as quickly as
possible and made
sure their offer killed
off the interest of
other clubs.
Shakespeare saw
him as a priority signing
as his experienced
first-choice central
defenders, Wes Morgan
and Robert Huth, are 33
and 32 respectively.
Davy
Klaassen
£23.6m
Lukaku
£70m£100m
The transfer window officially opens
on July 1 and by the time it closes it is
expected that spending by top-flight
clubs alone will top £1billion – again.
In the last summer window for
transfers Premier League clubs spent
£1,189,480,000 on players.
That massive spend included the
world-record signing of Paul Pogba,
who moved back to Manchester United
from Juventus.
The £89million fee topped the previous
mark of £86m for Gareth Bale’s move
from Tottenham to Real Madrid.
And this summer is expected to see
the spending of a year ago increased to
make it a record-breaking transfer
window.
There is already a spending war
under way between the two Manchester
clubs.
City and United are expected to shell
out in excess of £200m EACH as
managers Pep Guardiola and Jose
Mourinho demand the arrival of their
top targets in a bid to challenge for the
Premier League crown.
And that Pogba record will be a thing
of the past if Everton get their way and
Chelsea pay £100m for striker Romelu
Lukaku, 24, although £70m may be a
more realistic figure.
United’s biggest signing is expected to
be Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata,
24, at a fee somewhere between £65m
and £78m.
It might seem a lot of money for a
player who is not a regular starter for
the Champions League winners, who
prefer France international Karim
Benzema in the central striking role.
But Morata’s stats are impressive
and Mourinho knows all about his
ability and potential to become even
better, having first managed him at
The Bernabeu seven years ago,
promoting him to the first team at the
age of just 17.
The Spaniard was Real’s second-top
scorer in the season which has
just ended, with 20 goals in 43
appearances.
In La Liga matches he has scored 25
goals for Madrid in 63 appearances
since his debut in 2010, while on loan at
Juventus he scored 15 times in 63
games.
And for Spain, he has nine goals in 20
matches.
United have already secured one of
Mourinho’s targets – Benfica’s Sweden
centre-back Victor Lindelof, 22, for
£31m.
It’s City, though, who are leading the
way in the spending race.
They’ve already spent £78m on
midfielder Bernardo Silva, 22, from
Monaco for £43m – the biggest deal so
far – and goalkeeper Ederson from
Benfica.
Ederson, 23, has become the most
expensive No.1 in the world at £35m.
And the record-breaking nature of
the summer has been underlined by the
sale of Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford to
Everton for £30m.
That has made Pickford, 23, the most
expensive British goalkeeper.
Busy Everton boss Ronald Koeman
has also just spent £23.6m on Ajax
midfielder Davy Klaassen, 24.
So far, at this early stage of the
summer transfer market, Premier
League clubs have already spent more
than £200m.
And there is a lot more to come with
champions Chelsea, FA Cup winners
Arsenal and Premier League
runners-up Tottenham all still to flex
their spending muscles.

CRISIS
TALKS
Ronaldo’s agent
ready for Real
battle this week

DAILY STAR JUN 18 2017
LIONS coach Warren Gatland says
New Zealand know they will be in a
battle when the Test series begins
on Saturday.
After a 32-10 win over the Maori All
Blacks yesterday, Gatland (left)
believes the pressure is already
starting to tell on the hosts.
He said: “I’ve been surprised by Steve
Hansen, who is normally pretty calm. He
has been doing a lot of press conferences
and I can only take that as a sign of respect
in that he is a little bit worried.
“Maybe he is worried by potentially how
good this team can be. We know we have
got a big step up – but all I can say is that
this could be a great Test series.”
