‘Rudd
should
resign’
HOME Secretary
Amber Rudd should
quit over the
Windrush scandal, a
top Labour MP said
yesterday.
Emily Thornberry
claimed there was
something “rotten
at the heart of
government” as she
slammed the Home
Office’s approach to
immigration.
It comes after
members of the
Windrush generation
faced problems with
access to healthcare
and other state
services.
The shadow foreign
secretary said: “The
Home Secretary
thinks, ‘I can apologise
and it will be all right’.
“Well, it won’t be.
I really think she
should quit.”
Fox: I’ll
end red
tape
INTERNATIONAL
Trade Secretary Dr
Liam Fox is pledging
to cut “bureaucracy
and red tape” in a bid
to promote free trade
post-Brexit.
The staunch
Brexiteer argues that
outside the European
Union the UK will
enjoy “a new degree of
economic agility”.
In a speech to
leading policy makers
in London, he will say:
“We will work with old
allies and new partners
utilising the UK’s
economic strength and
diplomatic prowess to
forge new trading
relationships.
“Ultimately, our task
is to remove the
unnecessary regulation,
bureaucracy and red
tape that inhibit the
free trade in services.”

holidays pledge

JEREMY Corbyn will
make a St George’s
Day vow today to
create four new public
holidays if he wins the
next general election.
As well as St George’s Day
in England, he will urge the
Scottish Parliament and
Northern Ireland and Wales
assemblies to mark their national days with a holiday.
That would mean new UKwide holidays on St David’s
Day (March 1), St Patrick’s Day
(March 17) and St Andrew’s
Day (November 30) as well as
on April 23.
With eight public holidays,
the UK has the fewest of any
G20 or EU country.
The Labour leader is to make
the pledge when he addresses the annual conference of
the Communication Workers
Union in Bournemouth.
He will say: “If we win the

The song catapulted
The Boss to stardom

It will be sold at

DAWN A TURN-OFF

DAWN French has hinted
that her TV comedy days
are coming to en end.
The star of hit sitcoms The Vicar

prefers to stay out of the limelight
these days and write books.
Dawn, 60, said: “I do very little in
front of the camera these days. I’ve got
no desire to do jazz hands any more.
“I wouldn’t be sad at all if I never
acted again.
“In fact, when I get a script, my first
thought is ‘Oh, I hope this is no good,
because it’ll make it easier to say no’.”

She said: “We are not promising that
these kids are going to be big stars. It’s

I’VE raced in all sorts

This was unrelenting

Frost is expected in the north and
snow flurries are predicted in parts
of Scotland.
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst
said: “After this hot spell, there’s a big
change ahead, with much cooler temperatures and rain or showers.
“From 29C before the weekend, we’ll
go down to 14-15C highs in midweek,
with hints of cooler air following from
the north-west.
“But at least most people are used to
the cool weather after the cold March
and start to April.”
It comes after thousands headed to
the seaside over the weekend to soak
up the sun.
An estimated 125,000 revellers headed to Brighton, 50,000 to Bournemouth
and 25,000 to Blackpool.

Weather Outlook forecaster Brian
Gaze warned: “Highs will be 15C or so
lower leading into the weekend.
“Scotland could see snow on mountains, with -5C in glens, with 0C in
northern England and frost.
“Daytime temperatures will struggle,
with single figures in the north and all
parts of the country are likely to have
wet weather at times.”
Meanwhile, scientists fear the hay
fever epidemic will stay despite the
plunging temperatures.
A “pollen bomb” is set to cause misery for millions of people this week.
Guy Barter, from the Royal Horticultural Society, said: “The tree pollen
count will decline soon but then we
face an even worse situation in May
when grass starts to flower.
“Grass produces far more pollen simply because there is so much of it.”

I CAN’T BEAR IT!
Says
Every one
a winner!
FORTY one thousand hardy souls
braved the scorching temperatures to run the London Marathon
yesterday.
Hours after the elite runners had
showered and gone home, the bulk of
the field was still plodding, walking
and in some cases crawling towards
their 26.2mile target on the Mall.
Organisers had advised them to
ditch the fancy dress because of the
heat, but there were still plenty of
animal outfits, royal costumes, trees,
fire engines and dinosaurs on show.
One chap ran dressed as Big Ben.
It’s because of these full-of-fun
runners that the London Marathon
has become the world’s biggest
single-day fund raiser.
This year, the amount raked in will
top £60million, taking the cash raised
since the first London Marathon in
1981 close to £900m.
Some charities up and down the
land rely on this hard-won cash to
keep going.
So on behalf of them, we salute
all of you.
Your efforts will run and run!
Hol of a
message
TALKING of brave Brits, more and
more of us are booking holidays in
places that have been blighted by
terror fears.
Bookings are up an amazing 80%
in countries such as Turkey, Egypt
and Tunisia.
For some countries this return of
the tourists could not have come
quickly enough.
Their economies rely heavily on
cash generated by holiday cash.
But just as important is the message
that a return to the beaches of
far-flung places is a clear reply to
the terrorists.
Brits will never cower in the face
of evil.
And we WILL have our two
weeks of fun in the sunshine...
wherever we choose to go.

ST George
has been the patron
saint of England since the 14th Century, though probably never actually
visited our shores. He was born in
around 270AD in Turkey and raised in
Palestine, becoming a Roman soldier.
Edward III chose St George to be
a symbol of the English for his
chivalry and courage when he formed the
Order of the Garter in his name in 1348.
Each year we mark April 23 as St
George’s Day because it was on this
date in 303AD that he was tortured and
executed for opposing the persecution of
the Christians by the Emperor Diocletian.
He was recognised as an early
Christian martyr and the legend
of St George slaying a dragon and
rescuing a maiden – brought back to
England by the Crusaders – became
popular in medieval times.
Our national flag, the St George’s
Cross, was first adopted by Richard
the Lionheart in the 12th Century. Soldiers would wear the badge in battle. It
was combined with St Andrew’s cross of
Scotland to form the Union Flag in 1606.
St George’s Feast in London’s Trafalgar Square was held on Saturday
and the singing of the hymn Jerusalem
is traditional in churches to mark St
George’s Day.
Historically people wore a rose
to mark St George’s Day, as
the bloom was said to have grown
on his grave.
For centuries beautiful women from
our shores have been known as
English roses. At the funeral of Diana,

Princess of Wales, she was described

April 23 was also the date on which
William Shakespeare was born and
died. In the bard’s work, Henry V, the king
inspires his troops before the Battle of
Agincourt with the words: “Cry: ‘God for
Harry, England, and Saint George.’”
Sir Winston Churchill was voted
the greatest Englishman ever in a
2008 survey.
A recent poll showed 40% of those
living in England felt more English
than British, while 61% wanted to see the
flag of St George flown more often.
As well as England, St George is also
the patron saint of Malta, Portugal,
Georgia, Ethiopia, Lithuania and Serbia
as well as of butchers, soldiers, horseriders, Scouting and people suffering from
skin diseases. He is also revered in Islam.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s
Chapel at Windsor Castle next month.
Henry VIII is buried there.
The George Cross is the civilian
equivalent of the Victoria Cross
awarded for bravery not in active combat.
The medal features St George slaying
the dragon.
Unlike St Patrick’s Day in Ireland, St
George’s Day is not a bank holiday.
Yet two thirds of people in England think
that it should be.
Thousands of cars and houses
across England will be draped in
the St George’s Cross for the World
Cup this summer.
More than 300 pubs across the country are now named after St George.

MEL B has slammed
ex-husband Stephen
Belafonte over claims
she brainwashed their
daughter.
He has filed legal
documents saying the
former Spice Girl had a
“long-running plan” to
alienate her children from
their fathers.
Film producer Belafonte,
42, is trying to win
visitation rights to his
step-daughter Angel,
whose dad is Hollywood
star Eddie Murphy.
He requested the judge
order his own daughter
with Mel, Madison, into
therapy “to shield her from
the acrimony surrounding
the divorce”.
Last month, he accused
Mel of trying to poison
Madison against him by
claiming he was abusive
towards Angel.
Now, Mel, also 42, has hit
back, claiming it was
always her idea to get
counselling for the
six-year-old.
She accused her ex of
ignoring her and instead
waiting to file court
documents accusing her of
brainwashing Madison.
Mel said the allegations
were “nonsense”, and that
he has no evidence.

BRITAIN’S
GOT NO
TALENT
Fury at show’s foreign acts
® by PETER DYKE
BRITAIN’S Got Talent is running out of UK acts, say
show insiders.
On Saturday, boss Simon Cowell,
above, said it was “amazing” that
acts from all over the world were
auditioning for the ITV show.
But producers have been accused of
filling the line-up with foreign novelty
acts who have made a name for themselves abroad already.
This weekend’s show was stuffed full
of not-so-secret acts from overseas.
The head-balancing Giang Brothers
from Vietnam appeared on a Filipino
show called It’s Showtime performing
the same stunt last year.
Same-sex dancers David de Menes
and Javier Padilla auditioned for
Spain’s Got Talent in 2017. And wacky
dancer Radu-Alexandru Patrunsu was
on Romania’s Got Talent in 2014.
And they are not the only ones on
Saturday’s show who are seasoned
performers. The Lost Voice Man,
comedian Lee Ridley, had a pilot BBC
Three show last year.
Father Ray Kelly, who performed
NO SECRET: Vietnam’s Giang Bros
REM’s Everybody Hurts, signed to
Universal in 2014 and has released a
covers album and a Christmas CD.
And rock singer Jenny Darren, who
belted out AC/DC’s Highway To Hell,
has released 10 albums.
A show spokeswoman said: “Britain’s Got Talent offers the opportunity
for people to showcase their talent and
we explore every avenue to ensure we
are showing the best talent around.”

THERE’S good news and
bad news for fans of ITV’s
hit drama.
The good news is that Swedish
writer Hans Rosenfeldt has
mapped out a third story for Anna
Friel as DS Marcella Backland.
When series two ended last week,
viewers were left with a cliffhanger.
The disturbed cop had tried to kill
herself after working out through
MARCELLA
hypnotherapy that she had accidentally killed her baby years ago.
She then ended up living rough
until a police pal found her and said
she had been “declared dead”.
Macella was then offered a job as
an undercover cop.
Now Hans says: “Marcella is one of
my favourite creations and I have a
story where she can go. I think Anna
would be up for it.
“The last series ended that way to
set up the next chapter in her life.”
Now for the bad news.
ITV bosses have so far not made
a decision on a recommission after
ratings for season two were down.
Hans admitted: “It’s up to ITV.
This drama is different to what their
audience usually watches. I’d say it’s
50-50 right now.”

IT seems Swedish actress
Sofia Helin has something
to get off her chest.
She’s the star of the
Nordic Noir drama The
Bridge – coming to BBC
Two soon – and plays a cop
who investigates crimes
linked between Sweden
and Denmark.
That means driving
across the famous MalmoCopenhagen bridge every
THE BRIDGE
series. But she admits
she got fed up with the
constant 18-mile trips: “I
remember one time when
I was driving back and
forth and back and forth
and back and forth.
“I said to the assistant ‘I
don’t wanna drive over this
bridge any more’.”
HERE’s UK hopeful SuRie meeting ex-Eurovision
winner Mans Zelmerlow from Sweden as she tries to
rally support from other countries in the contest.
She is Ladbrokes’ 100-1 rank outsider to win in
Lisbon next month and, according
to Eurovision rules, fans are not
allowed to vote for their own
country’s act.
But she has come up with
a novel idea.
She joked: “Can we sort it?
Can we get Sim Cards and put
ourselves as abroad?”

RIDDLE: Poisoned Yulia
Yulia’s
lover
‘is spy
in plot’
THE mysterious fiancé of
poisoning victim Yulia
Skripal has reportedly
gone into hiding as it
is claimed he is a
Kremlin spy.
Stepan Vikeev is said to
be part of the feared FSB
intelligence service, the
successor to the KGB.
There are concerns he
was part of a “honeytrap”
plot to target Yulia and her
double agent father Sergei.
The Skripals were
poisoned with a nerve
agent last month in
Salisbury, Wilts.
The attack is believed to
have been organised by
Russian president
Vladimir Putin.
FSB chiefs have
blocked attempts to
interview Vikeev, while
he deleted his social media
profiles after the poisoning
took place.
He also did not answer
the phone when Ms
Skripal rang him after she
woke up in hospital.
According to Moscow
security sources, Vikeev,
30, works for the Institute
of Modern Security
Problems, an “integral
part” of the FSB.

“I’ve had enough. It’s

If he wins, he plans to
give the damages to charity.
He added: “I’ve no idea
how successful this will be
but I can’t sit back and let
it happen. I’m trying to
give Facebook a bloody

their snoring.

A whopping 78% of people go to bed
with someone who snores.
And the noise has driven some so far
to distraction they have come close to
ditching their partners.
A third of people say they are driven
mad by the sound of snoring.
Another 14% moan they can’t get any
sleep, while 28% say they are turned off
the idea of sex by the snoring.
But 60% of snorers claim they do not
have a problem or that their bedmates
are exaggerating.
Desperate to prove they are telling
the truth, almost a third have taken to
recording the snores.
Half of those polled for this week’s

that being too fat is causing their other

ANTONIO CONTE watched
Chelsea march into the FA
Cup Final – and then insisted
Manchester United will be
favourites to win it.
Olivier Giroud and late sub Alvaro
Morata scored to book a date with former
Blues boss Jose Mourinho and his
United side at Wembley on May 19.
But with 11 points separating the two teams in the
Premier League,
Conte (left) insists that

encountered last year when
they lost to Arsenal in the final.
He said: “I can tell you that we played
last season in the final and arrived as
favourites against Arsenal. This season, we are arriving not as favourites.
“But, as you know very well, we lost the
final despite being favourites.”
Mourinho and Conte have spent much
of the season trading insults. But while

BARRY DOUGLAS helped
Wolves deliver the
Championship title – now
he hopes the midwife can
perform just as smoothly.
Scotland international
Douglas and model wife
Debbie are expecting their
first child this summer.
It will put the icing on the
cake for the left-back, 28,
who got Wolves’ title
celebrations started with
the opening goal in a
stylish win over Bolton.
He said: “It’s been an
incredible couple of
months. Achieving
promotion to the Premier
League as champions is
the stuff kids dream of.
“And the baby will top
everything off. That will be
the biggest achievement of
this season I think!”
Douglas won the Polish
league at Lech Poznan but
he admits being crowned
champs in his first season
at Wolves means more.
“At Lech we went to the
town square and there
were close to 100,000 fans
there,” he added.
“They’re very passionate
over there and I’m sure
Wolverhampton will be full
as well when we get to

celebrate with the fans.
I think this just pips it a
wee bit because of what’s
at stake. To be able to ply
our trade in the Premier
League is special.”
Benik Afobe, Diogo Jota
and Conor Coady’s
penalty sealed an
emphatic win which left
Bolton two points above
the drop zone.
They face an anxious
trip to 23rd-placed Burton
next with midfielder Karl
Henry urging his teammates to hold their nerve.
He said: “You need calm
heads and people that
have been there before,
which we’ve certainly got.
“When you’re fighting
relegation and you
manage to come out of
the other side it’s like
surviving a car crash.
“It’s so different as
opposed to winning
something. I think it’s
arguably more rewarding
and important.
“For me keeping Bolton
up this season would be
right up there with the
greatest achievements
of my career.”

Roberts cancelled out

Maghoma’s 50th career
goal, which saw Blues win
from behind for the first
time since August 12.
Birmingham will be safe
if Barnsley lose at Forest
tomorrow and they beat
QPR on Saturday.
Duffy was booed every
time he touched the ball
but admitted the Blades –
now three points off the
play-offs – were woeful.
“We didn’t turn up. They
seemed to have more fight
and that’s massively
disappointing,” he said.
Boss Chris Wilder said:
“Unless something drastic

Barnsley last summer.
But he scored his first

being recalled as Blues

“I am disappointed in my

OLIVIER GIROUD loves the FA
Cup – and now Chelsea fans love
him.
The former Arsenal striker is fast becoming
a cult hero with the Blues after crossing
London and was given a standing ovation when
he came off after scoring the opener.
It was a stunner too as he showed all the
composure and fancy footwork of a lanky
Lionel Messi – with better hair – to wriggle free
of FOUR Southampton defenders just after
half-time.
Giroud has won this trophy three times with
Arsenal and came on in the final last season
when they beat Chelsea – but Blues fans have
forgiven him now.
He has had a hand in 22 goals in his 26
appearances in the competition since he
first came to England in 2013, scoring 15
times. No-one has scored more in that time.
Giroud hasn’t set pulses racing much since
Chelsea paid £18m for him at the end of a
desperate, exhaustive search for a centre
forward in January.
He has scored only four goals since then and
three of them have now come against Saints,
after he came off the bench to spark that 3-2
comeback win at St Mary’s last Saturday.
How Southampton must hate him. Beaten in

the League Cup Final here last season it was
another tale of Wembley woe for Saints, who
also conceded a late Alvaro Morata clincher.
Mark Hughes and his men must now try and
pick themselves up for the fight of their lives
for Premier League survival.
But for Antonio Conte, it’s a second straight
trip to the final, with his old foe Jose Mourinho
and Manchester United lying in wait. He may
still bow out with some silverware.
Hughes, an FA Cup winner with Chelsea as a
player in 1997, made two changes to his struggling side, while Conte made four, going with
Giroud up front and Morata on the bench.
And it was the Blues who made the better
start, with Willian rattling the bar from 16
yards early on before Maya Yoshida robbed
Eden Hazard with a goal-saving tackle.
For a while it was all Chelsea but they didn’t
have a single shot on target until 30 seconds
into the second half, when Giroud struck.
It was Cesar Azpilicueta’s long ball forward
and Hazard who got it down and nudged it into
the Frenchman’s path. But despite still having

it all to do, Giroud wriggled his way clear
and somehow stabbed it in with four Saints
defenders failing to stop him.
Giroud was in the wars when Oriol Romeu,
once a Chelsea player, crunched into a tackle
and caught him on the follow-through but he
was okay to continue.
Shane Long twice had penalty claims turned
down but in both cases it would have been soft.
Still, Saints weren’t done. Charlie Austin had
a header from a corner deflected wide by
Giroud and Willy Caballero saved well from
substitute Nathan Redmond.
Deadly
Caballero also dropped one into his own net
under pressure from Austin but referee Martin
Atkinson decided he’d been fouled.
Growing in influence, Hazard swung in a
deadly low cross which Cedric tried to clear
but deflected up off Yoshida and inches over.
It was game over when Morata, fresh off the
bench, chipped in with the second, a far-post
header from an Azpilicueta cross.
At the final whistle Southampton players
slumped to the ground as Chelsea celebrated.
But they can thank Giroud for this one. The
Frenchman blew kisses to his new army of
fans as the teams left the pitch. It looks like the
start of an unlikely love affair.
CONTE: NO MOUR PROBLEM
From Back Page
there can be only one winner
in the final, he insists they
have buried the hatchet.
Conte said: “With Jose, we
have clarified the situation.
“This is the most important
thing. There is not a problem
between him and I.
“We are talking about two
managers with strong
characters, and two winners.
“When in your mind and
your heart and your blood
there is the will to win, for
sure, we want to try to win
this trophy.
“The same way Manchester
United want to do this. I
repeat. I have great respect
for United’s story, for
Mourinho’s story.
“They have the same
respect, I think, for Chelsea’s
story and my story.” Giroud
is on course for his fourth
FA Cup winner’s medal but
Conte praised both the
Frenchman and his strike
rival Morata, who threw a
strop at Burnley last week.
He said: “It has been a good
signing for us. I needed a
player with this characteristic: strong physically, to hold
the ball up and allow our
No.10 to make combinations
with him.
“Morata is an important
striker. I think he’s younger
than Olivier. He has less
experience. He is less strong
physically but, at the same
time, is very fast to act on the
space. I’m pleased for both.”
Beaten Southampton boss
Mark Hughes slammed
referee Martin Atkinson for
disallowing what would have
been an equaliser for a
nudge by Charlie Austin on
goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
He said: “There’s disappointment because the
goalkeeper’s made a wrong
decision, basically thrown the
ball into the back of his net.
“If ever there was a
situation for VAR to play a
hand and step in to review
that, I would have thought
that was an opportunity.
“It was a match-defining
moment. Why it wasn’t
referred, I have no idea.
“Giroud handled from the
following corner, another
they could have reviewed.
“We’re disappointed with
the officials on the day, and
whoever it is who sits in a
darkened room.”
SEAN MORRISON reckons
Neil Warnock is the daddy
when it comes to creating
a band of brothers willing
to fight for promotion.
Cardiff skipper Morrison
headed home the first as
the Bluebirds went back
above Fulham in the battle
for second behind Wolves.
Two more wins from their
last three games will clinch
it for Cardiff.
Warnock’s warriors don’t
play Fulham’s fancy
football, or have Wolves’
wonderful match-winners,
but Morrison insists their
manager has created
something just as
powerful.
“Junior Hoilett said last
week that we are like a
family and he’s absolutely
right,” said Morrison.
“We’re all in this together
and that comes from the
gaffer and his staff. Our
biggest strength is the
togetherness in this team.
“We’ve dug in when it’s
mattered this season and
the three points were the
most important thing
against Forest.
“Now we look forward to
Derby. I don’t mind the
three-game weeks. It’s
®Êby GRAHAM THOMAS
tough on the body and
mind but I like to get the
games done.”
If Cardiff can win their
rearranged game in hand
at Derby tomorrow they
will move four points clear
of Fulham.
“God only knows what
Fulham must be thinking,”
said Warnock.
“They’ve gone 22 games
unbeaten but we’re still all
over them like a rash.”
Forest could have been
3-0 up before Morrison’s
opener but Aitor Karanka’s
team have a bad habit of
missing chances and then
conceding soft goals.
Morrison’s bullet header
was cancelled out by Liam
Bridcutt’s first goal in
seven years before Aron
Gunnarsson smashed
home the winner.
Karanka said: “It’s
frustrating for me. They
are very strong in setpieces and we conceded
goals at set-pieces again.
“But I think this is a
good lesson. If we want
to do something in the
future, then we can’t make
these kind of mistakes.”

MARLON PACK is refusing
to give up on the play-offs
after this 10-goal thriller.
Bristol City surrendered a
two-goal lead in the second
half and were facing a
shock defeat before Joe
Bryan’s dramatic
stoppage-time equaliser.
“To concede two goals
then be behind is just not
good enough,” said
midfielder Pack.
“We should have
managed things better
and seen the game out.
“We did well to claw
something back but
conceding five goals at
home is disappointing.
“In the position we’re in,
it’s killed us. It would have
been a massive win but
you try to remain positive.
“We’ve still got a
mathematical chance.
We’ve two winnable games
so we need to keep going.”
After falling behind to
Harry Wilson’s early strike,
®Êby ROB STEWART
Pack got his team back on
track with a 25-yard effort.
It then rained goals as
Famara Diedhiou’s double
either side of half-time put
Lee Johnson’s side 3-1 up.
Goalie Frank Fielding’s
own goal gave Hull hope
but Bobby Reid’s 21st of
the season put the hosts
back in command before
a flurry of goals from
Wilson, substitute Abel
Hernandez and Fraizer
Campbell.
The draw was enough to
guarantee survival for
Nigel Adkins’ side, but
Campbell said: “There’s
no cause to celebrate.
“When I signed last
summer I didn’t think if
we survived that would be
a good season for us.
“I thought we’d be
pushing up the table. But
we should be excited
about next season.”

POCH READY
TO GIVE KIDS
CUP CHANCE
Rookies on radar as Spurs
end with sweet FA again
MAURICIO POCHETTINO
admits he may downgrade
the FA Cup next season after
yet more heartbreak.
The idea of sending out the kids to play
in the third round is starting to sound
appealing to the Tottenham boss.
This defeat to Manchester United at
Wembley came a year after the 4-2 loss to
Chelsea, also at the semi-final stage.
Argentine Pochettino has played strong
teams throughout this season in his
attempt to land a first trophy in four
seasons at the club and a first FA Cup
for 27 years.
But with the club also competing in the
Champions League, where they went out
to Juventus in the last-16, and fighting
for a top-four spot, he appears to be
coming round to the view that a good
cup run can have a detrimental effect.
If was Spurs’ eighth FA Cup semi-final
defeat in a row and asked if it might be
a good idea to send out a team of rookies
next season, Pochettino said: “Yes, I am
thinking to play kids next time.
“I agree with you because it’s so unfair
when you lose. But that is my job to be
criticised when we don’t win.
Experience
®Ê
CHILE PEPPER:
Sanchez celebrates
his brilliant equaliser
“The problem is that the perception
sometimes is not realistic. But maybe
yes, next year we will look at the
possibility of playing with kids.
“I’m sure it will be fantastic for their
experience. Then we’ll stop arriving in
this situation.”
Pressed to clarify whether he really
might do that, he added: “Maybe. Not
because of this result.”
Pochettino may well have been
speaking out of frustration in
the aftermath of a desperately
disappointing defeat, which came
after Alexis Sanchez and Ander
Herrera scored for United following
Dele Alli’s opener.
Too many of his stars looked jaded,
particularly in the second-half as they
failed to force David De Gea into a save.
Heung-Min Son with 49 appearances
this season, Alli (46), Harry Kane (45)
and Christian Eriksen (42) all failed
to sizzle on a hot day.
The performance of Kane will be a
worry to England boss Gareth Southgate.
He was not awful but he was way off the
Yp;8M@;NFF;J
MAN UNITED... 2
TOTTENHAM.... 1
goal machine of earlier in the season
and there have to be concerns he came
back too early from his ankle injury.
“It’s not easy after injury,” said
Pochettino. “Harry needs time to
recover his best.
“Of course the performance sometimes
cannot be what we expect. Harry cannot
score every single game.”
Kane himself denied he had made his
return too soon.
“People are always going to look for
something to say when maybe you’re not
firing at your best,” he said.
“I’ve still scored two in my last four,
it’s not the worst in the world.
“But when you set standards,
people are going to look for
things when you’re not at
them.”
United defender Chris
Smalling, who handled Kane
well, hailed the contributions
of superstars Sanchez and
Paul Pogba.
They have both had their fair
share of flak and Smalling said:
“At United there’s a lot of
expectation, there’s a lot of
demands there that don’t
happen at other clubs.
“It takes big players to step
up in big games and I felt they
both did that.”
Smalling also said finishing
second in the league and
winning the FA Cup would be
an acceptable end to the
season.
“A few months ago it was
looking like that’s as much
as we could have hoped for,”
he said. “At the moment we’re
achieving that.
“We knew in these months
there were big games ahead
and we have won near enough
all the big ones.
“So I think we’re going to
build up a lot of confidence
going inwto the next year.”

MAME MISS
WAS KILLER
Howler sets clock
ticking for Potters

MAME DIOUF’S crucial first half
miss cranked up the pressure
on relegation-threatened Stoke.
How different things could have been had
the Senegalese striker smashed in a sitter
three minutes before half-time with his side
already 1-0 up.
Stoke boss Paul Lambert put a comforting
arm around Diouf but admitted afterwards
it was a ‘huge’ miss.
Lambert believes his second from bottom
side now have to win at Liverpool on
Saturday to keep alive their hopes of a
last-gasp escape.
“We got off to the perfect start by taking
the lead but Mame’s miss was huge,” he said.
“I think he was caught in two minds and
that’s what happens when you hesitate.
We will never give up but we have to win
at Anfield now – we just have to win.”
The result may well have put a massive
dent in Stoke’s survival hopes and they need
look no further than Diouf’s miss as the
major turning point.
Dreadful
Already in front thanks to Badou Ndiaye’s
11th-minute goal, they had a golden
opportunity to put themselves in command.
Stoke carved Burnley open down the right
flank and Moritz Bauer clipped over a
perfect cross to find Diouf unmarked at the
far post with keeper Nick Pope struggling to
have any impact on what happened next.
What did happen next was that Diouf
really couldn’t have done much worse.
His touch was dreadful and the ball
bobbled away to safety and from that point
something just told you that it might be
crucial.
Lambert did his best to console his man as
he walked off at half-time.
That act of compassion alone probably told
former Blackburn star Diouf everything he
didn’t want to know – he’d been guilty of a
real howler.
Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “Obviously
that was a turning point in terms of the
scoreline, but would it have been over at 2-0?
“I thought we were well worth at least a
point and arguably their man of the match
was their goalkeeper.”
Ashley Barnes, a pain in Stoke’s side all
afternoon, bundled the ball home in the
62nd minute to put a whole different
complexion on Stoke’s situation.
They must have been sick after seeing West
Ham’s Andy Carroll whip two points from
their grasp last week.
And so with four points snatched from them
®ÊÊ
WISE WORDS:
Lambert consoles
Diouf at half-time after
his nightmare miss
in successive games, it looks increasingly
likely that they will pay the ultimate penalty.
It had all started so brightly when Ndiaye
chanced his arm with a shot from just inside
the box and peeled away in delight as it took
a deflection off Kevin Long and flew into the
bottom corner of the Burnley net.
Stoke had to go for it, as Lambert had
promised beforehand, so it was inevitable
they would have to survive some scary
moments.
Jack Butland was there when required
with a string of fine saves.
He pulled out a cracking stop to deny
Johann Gudmundsson from a free-kick and
then kept the lead intact with a great diving
save to keep out a James Tarkowski header.
But with just over an hour gone, Burnley’s
effort paid off when Ashley Westwood
dropped a great ball into the box which was
nodded on by Tarkowski.
Butland parried but the loose ball was
pounced on and the alert Barnes steered
it into the net.
Stephen Ireland nearly came up with a
winner but his curling shot struck the
outside of the post.

PAUL HECKINGBOTTOM’S
players remain right
behind their manager
despite his difficult start
to life at Leeds.
Victory over his former
side was just
Heckingbottom’s third win
in 14 matches since taking
charge at Elland Road in
February.
The run has seen
Leeds slip into
mid-table putting
Heckingbottom’s
position under
the microscope.
“He has
worked so hard
on the training
pitch, as we all
do, and it was a
good result,” said
full-back Tom Pearce.
“The manager and his
backroom staff have been
great, they encourage you
just to go and play.”
That confidence was
there for all to see as
Pearce – making just his
third start – opened the
scoring from 25 yards with
his first senior goal.
Pearce (inset) was one of
five academy graduates
®Êby TOM MASTON
named in Heckingbottom’s
line-up, and the 20-yearold is hopeful that an
injection of youth can
push Leeds back towards
the top six next season.
“It feels unbelievable to
score my first goal for
Leeds,” he said. “We have
some good players here,
with the Under-18s
having just won
the league.
“I think we
have a chance
next season if
we can have a
good
pre-season
and keep
everybody fit.”
Barnsley, who
equalised Pearce’s
opener via an own goal
from Paudie O’Connor
before Ezgjan Alioski’s
winner five minutes into
the second half, remain
two points from safety.
Tykes captain Andy
Yiadom said: “We have
got to win our games and
cannot keep looking at
other teams. Every game
is now a must-win.”

LEW BEAUTY: Lewis Grabban fires home his first goal
Sam keeping
up the fight
@GJN@:?%%%%%%%%'8JKFEM@CC8%%%%%+
SAM JOHNSTONE says
there is no way Aston Villa
will settle for a place in the
play-offs.
Steve Bruce’s side took
ruthless advantage of
Grant Ward’s red card to
keep the pressure on
Cardiff and Fulham, who
are four and three points
ahead respectively.
And on-loan Manchester
United goalkeeper
Johnstone reckons
fourth-placed Villa are
ready to pounce should
their rivals choke.
He said: “Hopefully we do
catch them. There aren’t
many games left but it can
be done. It might be too
late but we are on a
winning run again.
“If it’s play-offs there are
another two games and the
final. Hopefully our run
takes us to the end, to the
final and we get promoted.”
Villa finish with a home
game with Derby and a trip
to Millwall – and could
potentially face one of
them again in the play-offs.
Former Tractor Boy
Conor Hourihane opened
the scoring before Ward
®Êby JON WEST
saw red just before
half-time for going over
the top on Neil Taylor.
Lewis Grabban bagged a
brace after the break
before substitute Henri
Lansbury headed home
the fourth.
Ipswich are looking for a
new boss after Mick
McCarthy walked out
earlier in the month, after
learning his contract
would not be renewed.
Caretaker boss Bryan
Klug has made it clear he
does not want to be
considered.
Midfielder Luke Hyam
said: “We haven’t got a
clue about the new boss.
The fans probably know
more than we do.”
The Portman Road
faithful would have gone
ballistic had McCarthy
presided over this defeat
but are much happier now.
Hyam added: “It
definitely felt different.
There were a lot more
fans. When we were 4-0
down, they were still
singing.”
Fernando’s real
rough diamond
J?<==@<C;N<;%%%%*I<8;@E>%%%%%%'
BARRY BANNAN reckons
everyone is lining up to
kick Fernando Forestieri.
Forestieri’s time at
Sheffield Wednesday has
been marked by training
ground bust-ups, transfer
talk and brilliant football.
But opponents often try
to rough up the Argentine,
to knock him off his stride.
His two outstanding
strikes either side of
George Boyd’s tap-in saw
off Reading.
“He’s brilliant even when
teams kick him,” said
Bannan.
“You want to kick him
yourself sometimes when
he’s not running back but
you’ve got appreciate how
good a talent he is, let
him do his own thing
sometimes and work
around him.
“There’s me and a few of
other boys who let him
away with it but others
want to kill him sometimes.
“He does things special
things for the club and we
®Êby TIM EVERSHED
need to keep him, keep
him fit and playing.
“He can get kicked from
pillar to post but he’s just
able to get on with it. I
think it’s the upbringing in
Argentina.
“It seems to be the same
with Lionel Messi and all
the Argentinians. They get
kicked but it doesn’t stop
them. Fernando may be
small but he’s got great
ability.”
A bad afternoon for the
visitors got worse when
Tyler Blackett saw red
and Reading boss Paul
Clement admits his side
are still in danger of the
drop.
He said: “We have to
stop relying on results
elsewhere, we have to get
our own game in order.
“Ipswich is a massive
game next weekend and
the players have to turn it
around in front of our
home fans.”
PEP’S MA
Unstoppable City play numbers
game in search of new records
MANCHESTER CITY put
on a five star show
with a masterclass to
crush Swansea.
Pep Guardiola’s champions
showed why they are the best
side in the land with a commanding win.
David Silva fired the hosts ahead
and it turned into a rout as
Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne,
Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling
all joined in the fun.
The title winners are now six
points short of breaking the
all-time record and six goals short
of the most scored in a single
Premier League season.
Guardiola said: “It was the
perfect performance again. We
were so good with the ball and
without it.
“It was good to see the fans
enjoying our football. There is
always a way to improve in football
and the records help the players to
be focused.
“We have won the title and now
it is about the performances and
the numbers.
“After winning, you can drop your
focus, but we saw that the players
are there. We spoke about that and
about how important it is to finish
the season with a good feeling.”
Tribute
There was a party atmosphere
inside the Etihad for City’s first
game since being confirmed as
champions.
Guardiola rested Kyle Walker,
Leroy Sane and Nicolas Otamendi
and there was a return to the squad
for Benjamin Mendy for the first
time since suffering damaged knee
ligaments in September.
The visitors gave Guardiola’s
men a guard of honour before
kick-off.
All that remains for City is to see
how many more records they can
break between now and the end of
the season.
At the last count there were seven
still to break, with the most
Premier League points and goals
the main ones in their sights.
But this was a much bigger game
for the Swans, who arrived in
Manchester desperate for points in
the battle to beat the drop.
Carlos Carvalhal’s men were four
points above the relegation zone
with five games remaining but it
was always going to take a minor
miracle for them to get anything
from this one.
City had dropped just five
points at home all season and
four more wins would see them
break Tottenham’s 1961 record
of 31 in a top-flight season.
It took 12 minutes of constant
pressure before City found the
breakthrough thanks to David
Silva. De Bruyne and Sterling
combined to tee him up and the
Spanish ace did the rest with a
YpA<I<DP:IFJJ
MAN CITY

clinical finish to notch his 10th goal
of the season.
The home side doubled their lead
six minutes later when Silva found
Fabian Delph, who picked out the
unmarked Sterling and it was
impossible for him to miss.
Silva’s namesake Bernardo was
feeling left out and almost beat
Lukasz Fabianski with a curling
effort after 31 minutes.
The keeper had to be sharp again
moments later to get down to his
right to keep out a low drive from
De Bruyne.
Jesus was the next to try his luck
with a powerful effort as the shots
rained down on Fabianski’s goal.
The dying Swans struggled to get
out of their own half, let alone
trouble the City defence and when
they did manage it just before the
break, Martin Olsson was booked
for a blatant dive.
De Bruyne then produced the
moment of the match with his
blistering strike 10 minutes into
the second half that had Guardiola up on his feet applauding.
Jesus saw his spot-kick after 62
minutes come back off the post but
Bernardo Silva reacted first to
knock in the rebound before Jesus
completed the demolition job two
minutes from time.
Swans boss Carvalhal said: “They
are from another planet. The level
that they play is very high.”
Swansea’s goal difference is now
worse than third-from-bottom
Southampton but Carvalhal added:
“This game will disturb nothing in
our plans.”

Virgil’s cool as Klopp rants
VIRGIL VAN DIJK served up some
soothing Roma therapy to
stressed-out boss Jurgen Klopp.
The laid-back Dutchman revealed Klopp was
furious after seeing his side toss away a
two-goal lead to the Premier League’s bottom
side.
Liverpool’s angry boss had steam coming out
of his ears – the last thing he needed with
tomorrow’s Champions League semi-final clash
with Roma to think about.
Klopp had a moan about everything – the
referee, the dry pitch and the fact that, the way
he saw it, West Brom only score from set pieces.
He also raged about his side being denied a
penalty when Danny Ings went down under a
Craig Dawson challenge and the fact there was
no red card for Ahmed Hegazi for giving Ings a
sharp dig in the ribs.
Honest
Defender Van Dijk revealed it wasn’t just
Klopp who got one or two things off his chest in
the dressing room post-mortem.
“There is no need to stress at all,” he said.
“We are disappointed to draw here. I don’t
worry at all.
“He was upset. Everyone gets upset. The way
we conceded those goals is something to be
angry about.
“We need to be honest with ourselves and
everyone was. We need to do better. You have
to tell each other the truth. You cannot be
nice and happy when we want to achieve so
much as a team and as a club.
“A draw here is not good enough but there is
no reason to panic. It is a massive opportunity
to get a good result against Roma that could
help us reach the final. We should be fine.”
It looked plain-sailing for Liverpool when
Ings rammed them in front after just four
minutes – his first goal in 930 days after two
Yp;8M<8ID@K8><

horrific knee injuries put his career on hold.
Ings must have almost forgotten what it’s like
to hit the net, unlike Mo Salah, who put them
further in front in the 72nd minute.
That’s his 41st in all competitions and the
watching Roma scouts must be having sleepless
nights about facing their former star.
No one could see an Albion fightback at
that point and when Jake Livermore pulled
one back with 10 minutes left a draw still
seemed fanciful.
But when The Baggies were awarded a
dubious free kick, they pounced.
Chris Brunt’s delivery was superb and
Salomon Rondon steamed in to head it home.
Klopp said: “It should have been a penalty and
Hegazi on Ings? That is a red card.
“You see it, I see it, but that’s not important. It
is only important what three or four gentlemen
with a whistle say about it. So we cannot
change a thing.
“Now we prepare for Roma. They have set
pieces as well but they don’t play only set
pieces. Their boys play sometimes on the
ground and then you can play football.”
Credit should go to West Brom but the trouble
is they’ve rediscovered their mojo way too late.
Stand-in boss Darren Moore has done a
marvellous job rejuvenating the shattered
spirit but it’s come too late.
Moore said: “Everybody around here is giving
everything. Being 2-0 up, they probably
thought the game was done, but make no bones
about it, we wanted to win.”

George Maris and a Jevani

FALL GUY: Wilfried
Zaha goes down in
the Watford penalty box
<LIFJGFK
We know Mo!
ROMA boss Eusebio Di
Francesco reckons he knows
the secret to stopping Liverpool
ace Mo Salah tomorrow night.
Di Francesco’s Romans march
on Anfield for the first leg of
their Champions League
semi-final fresh from battering
relegation fodder SPAL 3-0 in
Serie A on Saturday.
And he believes the
Egyptian hotshot’s two years
at the Stadio Olimpico could
help Roma’s cause.
Salah, 25, will come up
against his old club for the first
time since his £36.9 move to
Anfield last summer.
Di Francesco said: “His
qualities are very clear, don’t
forget that I prepared games
against him in Italy, too. But the

Townsend leaps to defence of fall guy
Zaha in new diving row
ANDROS TOWNSEND insists
Wilfried Zaha is no cheat.
Palace ace Zaha was involved in yet more
diving controversy after two incidents at
Vicarage Road.
First he went down under a first-half
Christian Kabasele challenge and was then
booked in this fixture for the second year
running for simulation after Adrian
Mariappa’s second-half tackle.
But team-mate Townsend rushed to his
defence.
He said: “Since I’ve been here, I don’t
remember a Wilf Zaha dive. When you’re
running quick and changing direction,
you may be caught off balance.
“That’s just the way he is. I’ve never seen
him dive but maybe because of that the
referees don’t give him penalties when
maybe they should do.
“He had one in the first-half where it

wasn’t a penalty and it wasn’t a dive – that’s
the case sometimes when you’re running at
speed and changing direction at speed, you
can lose your footing.
“Your opponent can just knock you off
your balance and it’s neither – it’s not a
dive or a penalty. In the second half, it

CRYSTAL MALICE:
Zaha clashes with
Watford’s Abdoulaye
Doucoure
looked like a clear penalty but it’s the
referee’s decision.
“If you’re talking natural talent, Wilf is
probably the most naturally talented player
I’ve ever played with.
“He’s absolutely fantastic in one v one
situations, he’s incredible at manipulating
the ball and tricking his opponents with
skill.
“If he can keep doing that from now until
the end of the season, he’ll help us stay up,
there’s no doubt about that.”
Zaha has been booked for diving more
than any other player in the Premier
League – four times – but amazingly
Watford defender Kabasele supported
him too.
The Belgian said: “He told me straight
that he didn’t look for the penalty.
“I know he has a bad reputation for it but
I think it was top class for him to say it was
not a penalty.
Mistake
“He can play for a better team than Crystal Palace because he’s a top player. He tries
to dribble the most in the Premier League
and has the most success.”
Palace are now six points clear of trouble
surviving a first half in which Watford
dominated with Stefano Okaka heading
against the bar. But boss Roy Hodgson
knows they are not safe yet on 35 points.
He said: “It would be a massive
mistake if we started to relax now –
until we’ve reached at least 38 points we
shouldn’t even consider it.
“I’m hoping this game could prove useful
because it reminds us that the minute you
take your foot off the gas, you can lose
matches in this league.
“Now we’ve got to make sure nothing
happens over these last three games that
can leave us thinking, ‘How on earth did we
get so close and allow it to slip from our
grasp?’
“If this team survives it would be an
achievement. I would be delighted for
them.”

Askey hailed as
Macc storm back
SAMMY MCILROY saluted
‘silent assassin’ John Askey
for shooting Macclesfield back
into League Two.
Askey’s men reclaimed their
Football League place after six
years absence thanks to Ty
Marsh and Mitch Hancock’s
goals at Eastleigh.
And former Manchester
United star McIlroy, who
achieved the same feat in 1997,
was quick to hail his former
player’s impact at the club.
McIlroy said: “He really is,
and should be known as, Mr
Macclesfield and no-one
deserves to be given the
honourable club legend status
quite like him.
“John was a fantastic player
and I used to call him the silent
assassin because he went
about his business in such a
quiet manner.”
Askey said: “We’re not the
® by GRAHAM NICKLESS
biggest team, probably the
smallest in the league, but
we’ve got the biggest hearts.”
Runners-up Tranmere beat
Halifax 2-0 and manager Micky
Mellon said: “Credit to
Macclesfield, they have been
the best team this season.”
Third-placed Sutton and
Aldershot in fourth face a final
day showdown for the second
home semi-final play-off spot
when they meet at Gander
Green Lane on Saturday.
Torquay were relegated to
Conference South by their 1-1
draw at Hartlepool and boss
Gary Owers said: “It’s not the
chapter anyone wanted to write
in the club’s history but it’s not
the last.”
Conference North champions
Salford City will play in the
National League next season.

FORREST’S FIRED UP
® by STEVE ACTESON
JAMES FORREST is relishing the chance
to clinch the SPL title by beating Rangers
at Celtic Park on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers’ boys will have to wait
for their seventh successive league title
after slipping to a 2-1 defeat at Hibernian.
But, after beating Rangers 4-0 in the
Scottish Cup semi-final eight days ago,
Celtic now have the chance to humiliate
them again and win the crown at the
same time.
Winger Forrest said: “It would be tremendous to go and do it in front of our own
fans and give them something to cheer
about.” Rangers went back second with a

2-1 win over Hearts at an eerily quiet Ibrox
yesterday.
Boss Graeme Murty sympathised with
fans who unveiled a banner before the
game attacking everyone from Dave
King’s board to Murty and his squad,
reading: “No fight, no pride. Nowhere to
hide. Incompetent on & off the pitch. We
deserve better.”
Murty said: “The fans are fully within
their rights to do what they see fit. The
players can only answer by putting in
performances like they did today.”

ALEX NEIL will never grumble
about Preston’s lack of spending
power because he says it is
harder to get by in Scotland.
Neil is used to working on a
shoestring, recalling when he
was manager at Hamilton.
He said: “I’ll be honest. In
Scotland, we don’t talk about
budgets much, because most
teams have got no money.
“So you’ve got Celtic and
Rangers who have got budgets.
The rest of us are signing free
transfers or kids. I think money
just pollutes football at times
down here.
“What I’ve got is a real honest
hard-working bunch of players,
and I love working with them.
“Whether they earn £200 or
£200,000 doesn’t really make a
difference.
“What they do is they come in
committed every day and they
train really hard.”
Preston are two points off the
play-offs but could have been
closer had they beaten Neil’s
former club.
Norwich’s play-off chase has
long since ended. Centre-back
Grant Hanley said: “There’s no
magic wand but we’re working
on improving. It’s up to us to fine
tune and keep getting better in
the areas where we’re strong.”

END IS NEAR:
Sunderland fans
react as Bent turns
away to celebrate
®Êby ROBERT DUNFORD
Bent in agony as he helps sink Cats
DARREN BENT can remember the good times.
The days when the Stadium of Light
was bouncing and he was banging in
the goals.
The former Sunderland striker’s fall
from grace has been almost as
dramatic as that of his former club.
In the last five years, he has scored
fewer goals than he notched in 18
months on Wearside.
Yet everyone knew the twist in this
red-and-white tale of misery, pain and
botch-up when after 86 minutes
substitute Bent cancelled out Paddy
McNair’s first-half opener.
It sparked a riotous, frantic and
catastrophic finale for Chris
Coleman’s side.
Moments later John O’Shea’s header
hit the bar and two minutes into
injury time Liam Boyce bagged the
winner. McNair’s last-gasp equaliser
was then ruled out amid rancour –
and relegation.
Burton’s winner had thrown them a
lifeline and sealed Sunderland’s fate.
Bent is a hate figure in these parts
Yp@8EDLIK8>?

after quitting the club in acrimonious
circumstances seven years ago.
But despite the boos and insults
hurled at him, he said Sunderland’s
demise saddens him. “If it was going
to be us or them relegated, of course,
I’d prefer it to be them,” he said.
Sympathy
“But Sunderland is a fantastic club
and I still have incredible memories
of playing the best football of my
career here.
“Of course I have sympathy. I may
get a bad reception but this is a
special place and I appreciated every
moment I was here.
“To think this football club with this
stadium is now in League One. That
is scary.” Bent’s words will offer little
comfort to long-suffering Mackems
nor will those of Burton’s manager,
Sunderland-born Nigel Clough, who
revealed what might have been at his
famous father Brian’s former club.
“Dad spoke unbelievably affectionately about Sunderland,” said Clough.
“I think there were a couple of
opportunities over the years of him
coming back here and he talked about
what a great thing it would be to
manage them.
“He didn’t talk about many other
clubs like that.
“He never said, ‘I want to manage
Manchester United, Liverpool or
Arsenal’ but he talked about this one.”
Coleman wants to stay but with
the debt-ridden club up for sale and
owner Ellis Short having washed
his hands of it, Sunderland and
their manager are in limbo.
“The problem is we don’t know who
the owner is going to be and that puts
doubt into everyone’s mind,” said
Coleman, who has yet to speak with
Short let alone meet him.
“At the minute he does not want a
lot to do with us. He wants out.”
®ÊÊ
AGONY: Chris
Coleman feels the
strain as his team
head for the trap door
RYAN WOODS thinks Brentford
could be the team to fear in the
play-offs if they make it.
Victory over QPR leaves them
a point off sixth spot, with two
games left. The Bees last
reached the play-offs in 2015,
when they fell to Middlesbrough.
Woods said: “I think a lot of
teams will be worried about us
getting in there, because they
are ones we’ve performed very
well against.
“I think you always find that
there is one team that sneaks in
towards the end, and I’m hoping
that we can be that side this year.
“We’ve got momentum and
confidence behind us.
“If we get there then there is a
massive belief in the changing
room that we can do it.”
Sergi Canos opened the
scoring for Brentford before Matt
Ingram saved an Ollie Watkins
penalty. Idrissa Sylla equalised
for the Hoops before Florian
Jozefzoon curled in the winner.
QPR boss Ian Holloway
believes his club will lose out in
the loan market this summer.
“If you want to borrow some of
these young people on loan you
are not going to get a chance,”
he said.
“All the bigger clubs will keep
them until the World Cup is over
to use them in pre-season, and
give their lads a rest.”

Y George! It’s time to sex up
e celebrations of England’s
tional day.
oday is St George’s Day and sees
triotic people around the nation
mmemorate everything good about
ng English.
s well as famous exports – we’re also
tty desirable to the rest of the world.
o grab your best red and white clothes,
gs and memorabilia and come together
eel proud of your red-hot country.
ere our saintly Stargirl Sarah models
me of the sexiest swimwear options out
re to help bask in the balmy weather.
he says: “I’m proud to be English
ause we have the best football, the best
bs and know how to make a good cup of
! But also our blokes are the best
und – I can see why other countries
n’t keep their hands off.”
he’s not wrong, on any account. The
glish Premier League is hailed as the
t in the world by both football experts
d fans alike.
ur games are broadcast into 500million
mes and to nearly 200 countries.
ut, more importantly, our blokes are
sexiest around, apparently. Not only
pop babe Kesha say she thought
glish men are the cutest in the world,
megastar Taylor Swift is one of many
llywood elite who regularly dates men
m across the Pond – her boyfriends
YpA<EE@=<I;LEB<IC<P
Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston and recent
beau Joe Alwyn are all English (although
Calvin Harris is a Scot).
We’re also better than the Germans in
bed, which is a result worth celebrating –
a recent survey by OnePoll.com said
we were superior lovers to our European
neighbours.
Perhaps it’s our tantalising accents that
have the rest of the world going weak at
the knees, being recently named the
sexiest in the world.
According to a survey by MissTravel.
com American women vote an English
accent the best around the globe, followed
by Scottish. The founder of the study said
that English accents were associated with
“intelligence, class and desirability”.
Beautiful
Our women are blooming lovely too.
Model Kate Moss was voted the sexiest
lingerie model of all time, beating American star Dita Von Teese and even perky
pop star Kylie Minogue. English roses
Princess Kate, Emma Watson, Michelle
Keegan, Kate Beckinsale and Emily Blunt
are often topping the list of the most
beautiful in the world.
If you’re looking for a mate, Manchester
came up trumps as one of the best places
in the world for dating. That’s according
to Time Out’s City Life Index, a global survey which
looks at “how city-dwellers
around the world are living and loving in 2018”.
It revealed that if you
are searching for love then
Manchester is the best city,
as 84% said they found it
a breeze here.
Maybe it’s our rib-tickling humour which sees
us do so well with the
opposite sex? The English
were also voted to have
the best sense of humour.
A study found we gave
the best laughs – thanks
to our comedians such
as Ricky Gervais, Steve
Coogan, Jack Whitehall
and Peter Kay.
Finally, our music is the
best to make love to. According to research on the
top baby-making songs of
all time by ShareMyPlaylists, Adele’s Someone Like
You scooped No1, ahead of
James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful and Eric Clapton’s
Wonderful Tonight.
So raise a glass to St
George and feel proud
to be from a nation
that’s truly hot
stuff.
KNIGHTS OF PASSION: England at its very best

Christopher England, MD, Ampli-Ear
NEW SMALLER MICRO MODEL
Experience the benefits of TWO Ampli-Ears:
Clinical research reveals how hearing with two ears (binaural amplification) is best:
Nature intended us to hear with both ears.
We hear sounds more accurately, hear
speech more clearly and our sense of
balance and direction is better. Most people
suffer hearing loss in both ears but usually
one ear is worse and as a result, people
wear only one device. This can put you at
a distinct disadvantage, making it more
difficult for your brain to understand and
process the sounds you are hearing.
With two hearing devices fitted, not only
will you hear more clearly and precisely,
but you can also set lower volumes,
minimizing the risk of sound distortion in
the ear, which can cause audible strain
and fatigue. You will find it easier to tell
the direction a sound is coming from –
this is particularly useful in crowded places,
listening to public address systems and
in negotiating busy roads. At Ampli-Ear
we understand the importance of
binaural amplification and are therefore
offering a discount of £13.95 when you
buy two Ampli-Ears – see coupon below.
Our Guaranteed Best Price Promise
Buying direct from Ampli Ear you can be 100% confident that you are paying the
lowest price. You won’t find this product cheaper anywhere else, if you do we
will refund the difference. In addition we include a 1 year manufacturers repair
/replacement warranty. Ampli-Ear, with over 750,000 units sold, is the world’s
No1 hearing amplifier... and it will improve YOUR quality of life. ORDER NOW.

JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
@Ëm\cfjk

MY partner and
I split in 2011.
Six months later
she won a huge sum
on the lottery. She
bought a big house
and, though I begged
and begged, she will
not give me a penny.
Now she’s taking in
paying guests for
something to do. She
says she likes to meet
new people and
enjoys the company.
I’m down on my
luck and she could
easily give me one of
her many spare
rooms, but she won’t
do it. I don’t want
her money, her body
or her attention. I
just need somewhere
to lay my head, only
she’d rather see me
on my brother’s floor.
I’ve made mistakes
over the years – I was
a bit of a drinker for
a while. But I’m not
a bad person and
I could help her out
with maintenance.
JANE SAYS: What part
of “no” don’t you get?
Your housing needs
aren’t anything to do
with your ex-partner.
You and she are now
ancient history. She
has moved on and now
you must.
She is under no
obligation to help you
out and you shouldn’t
expect her charity.
How would moving
into her personal space
ever work? What about
using the bathroom and
other spaces? You’d
clash at every turn and
why would she want
that? If you don’t like
where you’re living, talk
to social services or
your local council
regarding your options.
You may not think it’s
fair that she has so
much while you’re
struggling, but life is
rarely fair. Count your
blessings and make the
best of what you’ve got.

MY new girlfriend used
to be a stripper in our
old pub.
When it was knocked
down she went to Spain
and worked in a bar.
These days she’s
running her own cleaning
business and is very
successful, only my
mates refuse to forget her
past or accept that I’m
serious about her.
I’ve tried to explain that
she’s a businesswoman
now, but they continue to
laugh and call her names.
My oldest mate, in
particular, keeps saying
horrible things about her
offering sexual services
and having an affair with
the old goat who used to
run the pub.
I know that my girl isn’t
perfect, but who is?
I know that she’s kind
and delicate and a bit
ashamed of the person
she used to be.
Surely we’re both
entitled to a fresh start
and some happiness?
®
RINGING THE
CHANGES:
Loving and
considerate bride
has turned into
a nasty and
controlling cow
MY new wife turned into
a monster on our wedding day.
I could tell something was
wrong as she stomped up the
aisle to join me at the altar.
She had a furious look on her
face that chilled me to the bone.
Even as we signed the book she
was complaining about her dad
driving her mad and her sister
being a nightmare.
She told me I looked scruffy
and then bickered with the priest
because she could not use his
fountain pen.
Outside the church she scowled
all through the photographs and
then screamed at me because I
didn’t light her a fag fast enough.
I’m afraid to say that our marriage has been going rapidly
downhill all the way since.
Horrible
She’s gone from being loving
and considerate to nasty and controlling. Before we married she
was funny and kind.
Now our sex life is horrible.
Suddenly she’s cold and brisk and
acts as if it’s my “duty” to pleasure her – and do anything she
says in bed. She goes crazy if I try
to satisfy her and makes a fuss if
I want to see family or friends.
We’ve known each other for
more than 10 years. At one point
we were the golden couple.
I don’t understand how the
wedding ceremony has changed
her so much.
Now I don’t know what to expect
when I wake each morning. I’ve
never cheated or done anything
to hurt her or make her doubt me,
yet she keeps accusing me of
Picture posed by models

either fancying other women or
being gay. I don’t know if I’m
coming or going.
Our rows have become vicious
and nasty. No-one who knows us
would believe what’s going on
behind closed doors. Why is she
being such a nightmare?
JANE SAYS: Could it be that the
expectations and responsibilities
are now weighing heavily on your
new wife’s shoulders?
You’ve gone from being a young
couple to a married pair and, maybe, she feels overwhelmed?
Weddings are stressful and if
she’s started married life on the
wrong foot, then she might be
finding it hard to right herself.
I’m just making suggestions
here. What’s absolutely vital is
that you sit her down today
and tell her that you’re unhappy
and confused.
Why is she being so demanding
and so mean?
Can’t she see how much she’s
hurting and disrespecting you?
A marriage is an ongoing work
in progress. She doesn’t suddenly
“own” you; she can’t simply boss
you around like her own, personal
domestic slave. From speaking

rudely to being cold and unreasonable in bed, she needs to hear
that you’re struggling to understand her right now.
Ultimately, you have to be tough.
You need to stand up for yourself
before she overwhelms or crushes you.
Sadly, if she can’t calm down
and change, then maybe you’ll
have to conclude that this is a
mismatch and prepare to go your
own way.
Speak to your family and be honest about the situation you find
yourself in. Don’t let pride stop
you from speaking out.

JANE SAYS: Are your
friends worried about
you? Jealous? Or simply
out to cause mischief?
If your new partner once
had something of a
reputation, then it’s not
unreasonable of them to
be concerned.
No-one likes to see a
mate bite off more than
they can chew or get in
too deep with a new lover.
Ask your oldest mate for
another chat and tell him
that his silly comments
aren’t helping.
You’re all adults now
and some of us find love
in the strangest of places.
Would he rather see you
lonely and on your own?
What you need to start
realising is that this is
your life and you must do
whatever makes you
happy. You don’t need the
approval of your mates.
But I would ask you to
tread carefully and not be
too proud to admit it if
your new lover isn’t
completely right.

I’M terrified that my mate at work is attempting to throw
me under the bus.
We have to get on together and I thought I could trust
him. But I have been warned that he keeps slagging me
off to our boss behind my back.
Our firm’s downsizing and someone will probably be let
go. I can’t believe he would betray me but a client I trust
says that it’s true.
Do I confront him when he is so nice to my face?
JANE SAYS: I suggest you talk to your boss. He or she
needs to hear that you’re hard-working, trustworthy and
committed.
Don’t trade insults with your so-called mate, but watch
what you tell him. The business world is tough and you
have to hold your own.

YOU’LL get good news from a friend. One of
your best qualities is your ability to rejoice
over other people’s good fortune. You understand the
universe is abundant. Just because one person is
doing well does not mean your prospects aren’t.
YOUR ideas get an enthusiastic reception.
It’s a great time to make a sales pitch, give a
professional presentation or go on a job interview. People
love your ability to think outside the box. Instead of repeating other people’s concepts, come up with your own.

inspired to go on a journey because of this work.

YOUR powers of communication are strong.
Use them to air a difficult topic with your romantic or business partner. Contrary to what you may
think, you can change their mind about an important
issue. Explain how their actions have affected you.
DEVELOPING a moneymaking idea will be
lots of fun. You have wonderful instincts about
what the public wants. Creating a luxury product or service
could create financial stability for you. Although you’re not
materialistic, you appreciate the freedom wealth can bring.

Aerotek Series X2 40V Cordless Lawnmower
Only £249.99
No need to spend ages filling up with petrol or spending time and effort maintaining an engine, and no messing around with potentially dangerous cords. Simply pop in the
powerful series X2 40V lithium ion battery, and at the press of a button you can get mowing - no starter cord to pull and no cords to battle with. The quick charging battery
will power the cordless Aerotek Lawnmower for 35 minutes and mow lawns of up to 300-400m²*.
With a supersized, 50 litre collection grass box you can get more of the lawn cut, in less time, with an extra-large, 40cm cutting area that gets closer to the edges. You can
even use the mower with the mulching attachment to really nourish your lawn, with super fine nutrient rich cuttings. With a single height adjustment lever rather than four, you
can adjust the cutting height, making it perfect for cutting grass that’s short or long. To top it all off, the brushless motor cuts down on maintenance completely, meaning
once you’ve finished making your lawn look great, you really have finished. Easily fold it down for compact storage in your shed or garage when finished. Dimensions: L122 x
W51 x H113cm. Weight: 14.9kg.
Why not add a spare battery that allows you to mow for even longer and tackle larger lawns with ease? A spare blade is also available.
*Time and square metre operation figures are dependent on the health of the battery, ambient temperature, grass length, grass moisture levels, the health and sharpness of
the blade and the speed of walking when mowing.

SPLIT – THE DIFFERENCE
Have you played ‘Split Hold’em’ on
PokerStars yet? It’s rake heavy so it’s
not for grinders, but it’s great fun for
recreational players who enjoy a new
challenge. It plays like regular Hold’em
except two community boards are dealt.
The winner of each board wins half the pot,
though you can win both by holding the
best hand or getting everyone else to fold!
(www.tinyurl.com/DoTheSplit)
AWESOME FOURSOME…
Two pair can be one of the most challenging
holdings to play in Pot-Limit Omaha. If you
get caught in a fire storm of big pot action,
you are very vulnerable and likely to be
behind, even with top two pair. The way you
play two pair depends on:
1) What two pair you have (top two pair,
top-and-bottom pair, or bottom two pair).
2) The number and type of opponents you
face. Plus….
OR DOUBLE TROUBLE?
4) Your position and the action ahead of you.
5) The board texture and what else you can put
together (or represent) with your hole cards.
If you have top two pair in position against
minimum opponents who put up no action
ahead of you and you have back-up cards
that can improve your hand, then bet! In all
other situations, err on the side of caution
until your opponent reading skills and
understanding of the
game’s ‘evil’ intricacies
have improved.

HENDERSON SET
FOR CELEBRATION
UNLIKE the cliffhanger for the Irish
trainers’ championship, Nicky
Henderson, below, has the English
title bagged and banked.
The Lambourn trainer, who has
now taken the championship for
the fifth time, hopes to end his
memorable season in a blaze of
glory when Altior attempts to
repeat last season’s success in the
Celebration Chase on the final day
of the season at Sandown on
Saturday.
“He’s done one good piece of
work and schooled once since
Cheltenham and everything has
been absolutely brilliant,” said
Henderson.
Altior, last seen when
taking the Queen Mother
Champion Chase at last
month’s Cheltenham
Festival, should have an
easy task with Footpad,
the only horse currently
in training capable of
giving him race, running
at Punchestown on
Thursday.
Willie Mullins,
the trainer of
■ by CHRIS GOULDING
Footpad, will be hoping the gelding
can help him get the better of
Gordon Elliott for the Irish trainers’
title.
Daryl Jacob will partner the
gelding following the
announcement that Ruby Walsh
will miss the meeting due to a leg
injury which has not healed in time.
At Navan, Order Of St George
made up for last year’s defeat in
the Vintage Crop Stakes when
taking yesterday’s prize.
Winning trainer Aidan O’Brien
and Ryan Moore were also on the
mark when So Perfect impressed
after taking Tara Sires Stakes.
“We’re delighted with that
for a first run,” said O’Brien.
“I’d say she is an Ascot
filly and could run over five
or six furlongs.” Moore will
ride Mendelssohn for
O’Brien in next month’s
Kentucky Derby rather than
Saxon Warrior in the
2,000 Guineas
on the
same day.

AMIR TIME: Khan
knocks out Phil
Lo Greco and (inset)
celebrates his win
AMIR KHAN is targeting a
summer clash with American
motormouth Adrien Broner.
Khan returned to the ring after two years
out with a 39-second destruction of hapless
Canadian Phil Lo Greco on Saturday night in
their super-welterweight clash.
British rival Kell Brook stormed into the
ring at Liverpool’s Echo Arena afterwards
with the pair exchanging words to stoke up
the interest in a long-awaited clash.
Brash
But it is more likely they will have one more
fight each before seriously discussing a clash,
with Brook set to box in July and Khan a
month later.
The former light-welterweight world
champion wants to step up against brash
Broner, who fought a majority draw with
Jessie Vargas in the early hours of
yesterday in New York.
“I’d like Broner,” said Khan after his 32nd
career win.
“Broner is a big name, that would be a great
fight, to bring him to the UK.

CARL FRAMPTON will live
his Windsor Park dream
this summer before he
heads back to America in
a bid to land a third fight
with Leo Santa Cruz.
The two-weight world
champion (left) is
eyeing up a shot at
WBO title holder
Oscar Valdez
after winning the
interim belt with
a masterful
display against
Nonito Donaire
on Saturday.
Now promoter
Frank Warren has
promised Frampton
a fight at the home of
Northern Ireland football
in August. The Belfast hero
wants a fight with Valdez, if
the Mexican recovers from
the broken jaw he suffered
against Scott Quigg.
If not Frampton could
face IBF champion Lee
Selby, who must first beat
Josh Warrington.
Frampton will head
Stateside as he looks for
revenge on Santa Cruz, who
took his WBA title last year.
He said: “I’d love to fight
in America again – but I
love Windsor, that’s where
I want to be. When I
teamed up with Frank one
of the things I said was,
‘You need to make Windsor
Park for me’. That was the
deal and we shook on it.”
Frampton put in a
near-perfect display to
beat Donaire 117-111 on all
three judges’ cards.
He added: “I’ve got a
whole lot of sides to my
game. It was a masterclass
at times.”
Now KO king Amir is

fighters from America want to come here.
I think he would take the fight.”
Khan’s team are keen for their man to get
another fight under his belt before he takes
on Brook or any of the welterweight world
champions.
While the finish was impressive, after so
long out Khan didn’t get a chance to really
shake off the ring rust as Lo Greco folded
with the first big punches.
Former IBF welterweight champion Brook
has moved up to light-middleweight and is
likely to want the fight at a catchweight
between the two divisions. But Khan said: “It
has to be at welterweight if it’s going to
happen. I want to win a world title at this
weight.
“There are big names in this division. So
definitely, if Kell wants it, let’s do it at
welterweight.
“We’re close to making the fight happen
because we have the same promoter now. It
would be good for us both.
“If not people will always say they should
have fought each other.
“It will be like when Ricky Hatton didn’t
fight Junior Witter.
“I don’t want people to say that about me,
that I didn’t want a fight. I want to give my
fans all the fights they want to see.”
HARD TO SWALLOW FOR MO
SIR MO FARAH kept his cool
but almost lost his bottle as he
broke Steve Jones’ 33-year-old
British record in the London
Marathon yesterday.
Farah (left) finished third
in two hours six minutes
21 seconds as Kenya’s
Olympic champion Eliud
Kipchoge won in 2:04:17 from
Ethiopian Tola Shura Kitata.
But Farah,
who was

■ by RICHARD LEWIS
at the centre of two crazy
drinks stations incidents.
First, he picked up the wrong
drink, threw it away and went
back to collect the right one.
At the second, he collected
the wrong bottle before the
right one fell off the table.
In between, he complained
to motorcycle outriders,
asking them to pass on
messages to the drinks staff.
Marathon officials confirmed
the drinks were in the right
order but Farah, 35, said: “The
volunteers were helpful
towards the end but at the
beginning they were trying
to take a picture rather than
saying, ‘take a drink’.
“I was asking the people
on motorbikes to tell the staff
to be a bit helpful instead of
taking pictures.
“I wasn’t wasting energy,
I just needed a drink.”
Kenya’s Vivian Cheruiyot
won the women’s race as
favourite Mary Keitany and
Tirunesh Dibaba both faded
in their bid to beat Paula
Radcliffe’s 2003 world record.

Rocket’s on

■ by HECTOR NUNNS
The Rocket produced a stunning comeback
to win 10-7 after trailing 6-3 in his Betfred
World Championship first-round clash at
Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre.
Snatching seven of the last eight frames,
O’Sullivan, 42, kept his hopes of a sixth world
title alive.
And he looked fresh as a daisy in the
tense final stages after making diet as big a
priority as his running.

it for Brits

BRETT PERLINI scored
on his debut as Great
Britain began their

campaign with a 3-1
victory over top-seeds
Slovenia in Budapest.
Ben O’Connor opened
the scoring with a
power-play goal in the
sixth minute and Perlini
and Rob Dowd finished
it off after Blaz Gregorc
had equalised.
Nutrition
O’Sullivan said: “I am passionate about
nutrition and diet now and think I might live
to 200. Maybe I should change my walk-on
music to Live Forever.
“It is the biggest thing for me at the moment,
how I have tackled the way I eat.
“I have lost about two stone, not through
exercise but through changing what I eat
and how I eat.
“I have got a book coming out with my
nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert and I am
amazed how good I feel and how healthy I
am. I have got really super-excited by it all.
“There are so many people who have
problems with their weight and want to feel
better about themselves. I have been in that
situation and there is an answer. A lot of
FOR FUN
people in Britain are massively obese, a bit
like America.”
Speaking of the match, he said: “I was
embarrassed by the way I played in that first
session and I felt like I wanted to give the
crowd their money back.
“At least Stephen gave them something to
watch, I was all over the gaff.
“I was lucky to get through, that is good for
me and disappointing for Stephen. It can be a
toss of a coin, these matches.”
World No.18 Maguire, 37, was left to rue a
series of missed chances.
The Scot said: “He will feel he got out of jail
and I felt the match was there for the taking.
“I could have won the match in the first
session. I had the lead because he was so bad
on Saturday, I was under no illusions and I
knew he would improve. He did and I stayed
the same.
“But I have accepted that I will be floating around the edge of the top 16 and in
the top 32 for the next few years.
“I’m not sure I have declined just stayed the
same. When the (top) boys play well, they are
awesome. I haven’t got that and it shows.”
O”Sullivan now plays Ali Carter, who will
be seeking to avenge his 2008 and 2012 final
defeats at the hands of the Rocket.

champion Graeme Dott 10-8.

MOTOGP
■ by ZOE BURN
MARC MARQUEZ made it
six in a row in Texas last
night as he stormed to his
first win of the year at the
MotoGP of the Americas.
The reigning champion,
who took the lead in the
first lap, beat Movistar
Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales
by 3.560secs.
“I didn’t have the
confidence to battle, so I
was pushing from the
beginning,” said Marquez.
“I pushed hard to just try
and get away, open the
gap and yes, it was a good
race.
“I’ve got 25 points and we
go to Spain now for the
next race. I’m very happy.”
Marquez’s weekend had
taken a dramatic turn on
Saturday after he scorched
to pole eight minutes after
a crash but was later
penalised for holding up
Vinales on track.

It meant the Spaniard
started from fourth on the
grid, but after a faultless
start he was second into
the first turn behind Andrea
Iannone.
He was to get past the
Suzuki Ecstar rider as
Vinales settled into third
ahead of team-mate
Valentino Rossi.
Iannone stayed with
Marquez for a few laps,
making a dive for the lead
on lap three, but ran a little
wide, just enough for
Marquez to steal the spot
back and enough to edge
out a little gap at the front.
Iannone slowly dropped
back, eventually falling into
the clutches of Vinales on
lap seven.
But it was a miserable
afternoon for Britain’s Cal
Crutchlow whose title lead
disappeared after crashing
out on the eighth lap.
Ducati’s Andrea
Dovizioso finished fifth
behind Rossi, moving back
into the championship lead
on 46 points, just one
ahead of Marquez, as
Crutchlow dropped to
fourth behind Vinales.

BENITEZ IN
CASH PLEA
■ by IAN MURTAGH
RAFA BENITEZ has told Newcastle owner Mike Ashley not to
expect miracles from him again
next season.
In the past two years, Benitez has led the
Magpies to promotion and Premier League
safety.
Victory at Goodison Park tonight would see
them leapfrog Everton into ninth place.
Benitez fears he will not be able to deliver
another season like this one unless there is
major investment in the squad.
“I cannot do miracles every year,” said
Benitez who takes charge of his 100th
Toon game tonight.
“If we finish in the top 10, it will be massive
when you consider the resources we had.
■
TON UP:
Benitez
takes charge
of Newcastle
for the 100th
time tonight
Anxious
“If we had finished above 17th this season,
it would have been a success.”
Benitez has 12 months left on his contract
and the club are anxious to tie him down to a
long-term deal.
But the former Liverpool and Real Madrid
coach will not sign unless he is satisfied that
Ashley shares his ambitions.
He has received no indication from the
boardroom that he will have the funds he
wants this summer.
He added: “I am a manager who wants
to win and we have to change things if we
want to improve.
“You have to have the tools to be sure that
you can do your job. My objective is not to
finish ninth, it is to win titles and cups. That
is what I want to do.
“It’s not just survival or mid-table. I want to
be sure we can fight for trophies.”
KENEDY TO
SCORE FIRST
8/1
Sam all right with Rafa
SAM ALLARDYCE says he
has buried the hatchet
with Rafa Benitez.
The Everton boss faces
the Newcastle chief tonight
at Goodison Park.
The pair never shied
away from their rivalry
when Benitez was in
charge at Liverpool and
Allardyce at Bolton.
Allardyce wrote in his
autobiography that
Liverpool’s 2005 Champions League win had “nowt
to do with” the then Reds
boss.
But the Toffees manager
said: “That’s water under
the bridge and 15 goddam
years ago when he just got
■ by CHRIS McKENNA
here and I was winding up
anyone I could. And it
worked well at times. That
doesn’t happen now. I
wouldn’t go back to that.
I’m too long in the tooth
and mature for it.”
Allardyce (right)
has four games
to convince the
club he can take
them forward
beyond this
summer.
He faces a tough
task after fans were
asked to mark him out of
10 in a survey run by the
club’s marketing depart-
ment. Allardyce insists he
deserves more credit for
steadying the ship after he
replaced Ronald Koeman in
November.
“You can only do what
you do and work as hard
as you possibly can with
the squad and the
players you have
got, to deliver
what you can,” he
said. That has
been a difficult
challenge.
“We have
managed to
overcome the chaos. My
contribution is 30 points
from 21 games, rather than
13 games, 12 points.”
Tim’s Vai hope Joe adds touch
JUNIOR VAIVAI could not
mark his Ladbrokes
Challenge Cup debut with
a try but looks a ready
replacement for troubled
team-mate Thomas Minns.
Vaivai impressed during
a 40-minute opening half
cameo, carving out tries
for hat-trick hero Adam
Quinlan and teenage wing,
Will Oakes.
His powerful display was
a tonic for Rovers after
confirming Minns failed a
drugs test in midweek.
Coach Tim Sheens said:
“Junior is still not 100 per
cent fit standard-wise and
there was no point risking
a dead leg or any other
issue. He has only been in
the country three or four
weeks and we have bigger
things for him.”

dumped Rovers out of the

no danger of a repeat.
Rovers led 20-0 at
half-time with Chris Atkin,
Oakes and Quinlan (twice)
touching down. Quinlan
completed his treble after
47 minutes before being
replaced by Will Dagger
who also touched down.
Oldham boss Scott
Naylor said: We just
needed a bit of help and
the official in the middle
didn’t give us any. He
refereed it at Super League
level and he refereed it

STUART LANCASTER is on the cusp of completing his rehabilitation after helping lead Leinster to the Champions Cup final.
Lancaster looked a broken man when he resigned as England coach
following their disastrous home World Cup campaign in 2015. But he
was too good a coach to be lost to rugby union and the Irish club
deserves credit for recognising that. It has proved the perfect fit.
He has been allowed to go about his business without constantly
being reminded of his famous failure. The end result is that Leinster
are now one win away from becoming European champions again and
Lancaster’s reputation is well on the way to being repaired.

THE CHAMPAGNE will be
flowing faster than the Mersey
should Liverpool go on to win
the Champions League.
But at least one member of Jurgen Klopp’s
squad won’t touch a single drop if he finds
himself celebrating what would be the finest
achievement of his long and distinguished
career.
Under no circumstances does James
Milner drink alcohol.
He wouldn’t even crack open a beer if
England won the World Cup. He said so
ahead of the last finals in Brazil in 2014.
Milner would rather go home and wash
the car or mow the lawn at his Cheshire
mansion than go clubbing with his
team-mates.
That’s the thing about Milner. Unlike most
of his peers who would prefer to pay
someone to come round and perform
menial tasks deemed beneath them,
Milner prefers to get his hands dirty.
With him, it’s all about taking
responsibility and doing the job
yourself.
All of the above has contributed
to Milner becoming a figure of
ridicule at times, branded dull,
boring, predictable and average.
The fake Twitter account set up
to mock him called ‘Boring James
Milner’ has more than 600,000
followers – and no wonder with
priceless gems like this…
“I just said to Trent AlexanderArnold, ‘What’s that in your pocket?’
He said ‘Huh? What are you talking
about James?’ I said, ‘It’s Leroy Sane’.
It was so funny.”
Milner’s legitimate Twitter account has
224,000 followers and compared to the likes
of Paul Pogba and Mario Balotelli, perhaps
Milner is boring – especially as his first
tweet included a picture of him doing the
ironing.
But we shouldn’t laugh at someone
more concerned with improving his

profile on the pitch instead of self-obsessing
off it.
Now, ahead of tomorrow’s Champions
League semi-final clash with Roma, there is
a new question doing the rounds: Is Milner
the most under-appreciated footballer of his
generation?
Manuel Pellegrini, who managed
Milner at Manchester City, once
described him as the most complete
English player in the modern game.
He praised his all-round ability, commitment, performance levels and
versatility, but the problem was
both of them left the Etihad in
2016.
Milner was allowed to go to
Anfield on a free transfer
because he didn’t fit the mould
wanted by incoming boss Pep
Guardiola.
Milner helped his current
side dump his old team out
of Europe recently in a
remarkable 5-1 quarter-final tie.
Klopp’s much-vaunted front three
of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto
Firmino steal all the headlines – and
deservedly so.
At the same time, Milner, who spent
most of last season at left-back
because no one else wanted to play
there, continues to perform with a
remarkable level of consistency
under the radar.
He must be one of the first names
on Klopp’s team sheet, which makes it all
the more peculiar that Milner won’t ever be
named on England’s team sheet again.
Milner, 32, retired from international
football in 2016 following a conversation
with then-boss Sam Allardyce.
Given the time Allardyce spent in the job,
I can only imagine it was brief.
Milner won 61 caps in seven years of
international football and went to four
major tournaments, but wasn’t used in the
last of these – England’s shambolic failure
at Euro 2016.
Faster
In fact, England’s constant failings during
this period had little to do with someone
who never let his country down.
But while Milner focuses on getting the
maximum out of what remains of his club
career, current Three Lions boss Gareth
Southgate is mulling over his options for
this summer’s World Cup and wondering
who will fulfil the defensive midfield role.
The obvious choice would be Milner,
who remains fitter, faster and more
industrious than the likes of Eric Dier
and club captain Jordan Henderson.
Southgate will be at Anfield tomorrow for
the first leg against Roma to run the rule over
Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
But Southgate should seek out Milner
just to see if he is willing to come out of
retirement. He wouldn’t be able to wash
his car for a few weeks but the wait
could be worth it.
Sean can fill in for genius Joey
JOEY BARTON must be feeling as
sick as Jamie Tandy was after
having a burning cigar rammed
in his eye.
Barton (right) has just
been gifted his first
managerial job at
Fleetwood by
chairman Andy Pilley.
But in a sliding
doors moment, had
Barton remained out
of work for only a few
more days he would
have realised Arsene
Wenger was about to
leave Arsenal and could have put
himself in the frame to replace him.
Read Barton’s autobiography
‘No Nonsense’ where he
gives the impression he
has a more acute
managerial brain than
Wenger, Pep Guardiola
and Jose Mourinho
put together.
No doubt once
Barton has led
Fleetwood to the
Premier League he will
be in line for one of the
glamour jobs he feels
capable of fulfilling. In the meantime,
the Gunners will trawl the globe
looking for a foreign import to fill
the sizeable shoes of Wenger.
The predictable European
candidates are doing the rounds, but
how about Emirates bosses looking
a little closer to home in the shape of
Burnley manager Sean Dyche (right)?
Dyche has earned the chance to
manage one of England’s elite clubs.
The last time a British coach was
given such a chance – in the shape
of Brendan Rodgers – he came within
a whisker of winning the Premier
League with Liverpool.

NOT even Eden Hazard’s words of encouragement could save Chelsea from a 3-1 defeat in
the first leg of their Women’s Champions
League semi-final against Wolfsburg at AFC
Wimbledon’s Kingsmeadow Stadium.
Hazard sent the team a good luck message
after helping the men’s team clinch an FA
Cup Final showdown with Manchester United
next month.
And Chelsea responded with a secondminute opener from Ji So-yun (right).
But the German side responded brilliantly
and levelled in the 17th minute when Sara
Bjork Gunnarsdottir powered a header past
Chelsea keeper Hedvig Lindahl.
Chelsea defender Maren Mjelde bundled in
an own goal from a goalmouth melee and
Lara Dickenmann hooked in a third after 66

But City did well not to concede against a

conceding five.

DIFFICULT: Mourinho
No Mour
massive
signings
■ by PAUL BROWN
JOSE MOURINHO has
ruled out a big summer
spending spree after
leading Manchester United
to the FA Cup final.
United will face Chelsea
in a record-equalling 20th
final appearance after
coming from behind to beat
Tottenham on Saturday.
But while boss Mourinho
already has dethroning
Premier League champions
Manchester City in his
sights next season, he says
he will not be trying to
compete with them in the
transfer market.
“If they’re going to invest
on top of the team they
have, it will be difficult for
all of us,” he said.
“We are going to invest
the basic to improve our
squad. We need to find a
replacement for Michael
Carrick. If Marouane
Fellaini leaves, we need to
find a replacement for him.
“We have some young
players that need to get
opportunities for their
evolution. But let’s see.”
That could be good news
for Marcus Rashford but it
signals a sea change in
policy for a club which
shelled out £75m on
Romelu Lukaku and £89m
on Paul Pogba in the past
two years and offered
Alexis Sanchez £500,000-aweek to join from Arsenal.

Harry’s
4-sight
Wenger party fails to get going
■ by PAUL BROWN
HARRY KANE says
Tottenham cannot afford
to blow a top-four finish
the way they blew their FA
Cup dreams.
Spurs lost their eighth
consecutive FA Cup
semi-final after allowing
Manchester United to come
from behind to win 2-1 at
Wembley.
Now Kane insists they
must not let that crushing
disappointment knock
them off course in the race
for a Champions League
spot with Chelsea just five
points behind them.
He said: “We have four
games left. This defeat is
going to hurt, probably
until the end of the season.
“But we still have to
secure that Champions
League spot.
“That’s massive for the
club, going into the new
stadium next season.”
Kane believes Spurs do
not have a mental block in
the big games despite 10
years without a trophy.
He said: “We’ve been
close but not good enough
in the final minutes.
“So we have to do better.
We just have to find our
way round it.”
IT ONLY took three goals in
seven minutes to spark it – but
Arsenal fans did eventually
sing ‘one Arsene Wenger’ with
real gusto.
■
LIVING LEGEND:
Wenger gives
the thumbs-up
The chant around the stadium lasted a
good 20 seconds.
With their team 4-1 up at the time,
supporters suddenly found some affection
for the boss who many have been
demanding leave for the last few years.
There was a smattering of placards and
banners too, one saying ‘One Arsene
Wenger’, a smaller one proclaiming ‘Thank
you for the memories Arsene’.
Another carried by some youngsters
cheekily said they did not remember how
good he was – but their dad did.
But if this was supposed to be an
Arsene Wenger love-in after last week’s
shock announcement he is stepping down
at the end of the season, then someone
must have put a sedative in the fans’ teas
and beers.
The Emirates Stadium was fuller than it
has been for a league game for months.
But quite a few didn’t exactly rush to get
to their place for the 1.30pm kick-off, with
empty seats in abundance and the ground
gradually filling as the game unfolded. In

the end, the home support went home
happy with goals from Nacho Monreal and
Aaron Ramsey and a double from
Alexandre Lacazette all but ensuring the
Gunners finish sixth.
Marko Arnautovic equalised for the
Hammers, who looked set to spoil the party
until a late onslaught, which began when a
Declan Rice howler put Arsenal 2-1 up.
Lucky
But it was a slightly surreal atmosphere
at the Emirates following Wenger’s
announcement on Friday he was standing
down this summer after 22 years.
To be fair, fans who had abused him, and
others who had stayed away in their droves,
must have felt hypocritical to hail the man
they have been so desperate to get rid of.
The 68-year-old was once more frustrated
by what he was seeing, standing in the
technical area with his arms firmly folded
in that familiar pose we have seen so often.
Monreal, the Spain defender who has been
so consistent for his boss, provoked the
equally familiar double fist pump in the
51st minute, volleying in a Granit Xhaka
corner.
But the Frenchman’s mood darkened
again in the 64th minute as Arnautovic
lashed home.
Joe Hart pulled off two excellent stops to
deny Xhaka and Danny Welbeck.
But Hart was helpless as Arsenal grabbed
a lucky second in the 82nd minute.
Aaron Ramsey crossed from the left and
Rice ducked under the ball, fooling Hart,
and the ball bent in at the far post.
Three minutes later he was beaten again
with the Gunners fortunate once more.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set up
Lacazette to shoot from a tight angle out
wide and the ball struck Aaron Cresswell,
smashed into the ground and flew past
Hart.
The Hammers collapse was completed in
the 89th minute when Hart could only push
in Lacazette’s shot from 10 yards after he
was played in by Ramsey.
Cue that ‘One Arsene Wenger’ chant.
Sadly for the manager it was as
convincing as Arsenal’s bid this season to
end their 14-year wait for the title.

just winning or losing and for me
that was always a worry – how the
club was perceived worldwide.
“For kids playing in Africa, China
and America and the dreams it can
create for young children who want
to play football. All our clubs have a
responsibility for that.
“If you travel with us – and I travel
a lot – this club is respected all over
the world, and that is down to work
and the way we play football, the
way we behave and the way we
treat people.
“I want that to go on and be
respected and give the image I
think is right, even if there is a lot
of money in the game.
“Above that, it is more than the
money, more than the result. It is
the way the club is received and the
impression it leaves all over the
world.”
Starsport revealed on Saturday
that Juventus boss Max Allegri and
Hoffenheim’s Julian Nagelsmann
are in the frame to replace Wenger,
with former Barcelona boss Luis
Enrique also under consideration.
Everton have contacted Wenger
about the possibility of a shock
move to Goodison and Starsport
can reveal they hope to pair him
with former Arsenal full-back and
current Dynamo Kiev assistant
coach Oleg Luzhny.
But Wenger hinted last night, after
two goals from Alexandre Lacazette
and strikes from Nacho Monreal
and Aaron Ramsey saw off West
Ham, that he could not see himself
managing another Premier League
club.
“If you speak about emotions, that
would certainly be emotionally
difficult,” said Wenger.
Wenger, who also confirmed he
will not have any input into picking
his successor, also joked about the
huge reaction to his shock
announcement.

The Frenchman, 68, claims supporters fighting
over his future had damaged the reputation of the
club around the world.
Gunners fans have been split over Wenger in
recent years with growing numbers demanding he
goes, sparking regular fights last season.
“I am not resentful with the fans,” said Wenger,
who announced on Friday that he will step down in
the summer after 22 years in charge.
“I just feel that if my personality is in the way
of what I think our club is, for me that is more
important than me staying.
“I was not tired, but I believe this club is respected
all over the world, much more than in England.
“Our fans did not give the image of unity at the
club I want all over the world. That was hurtful.
“We can speak and speak and speak but sport is
about winning and losing and you have to accept
you will lose games, even when I am not here any
more. But it is also about something bigger than
