D-DAY BOOB
IRISH PM Leo Varadkar has infuriated
Leavers after suggesting he feels sorry for
British World War 2 veterans over Brexit.
He told the European Parliament in
Strasbourg Tommies storming the beaches
on D-Day did so ?for European values?.
But critics pointed out nobody had even
conceived of the EU project in 1944.
Brexit reverse
JUSTINE Greening warned Theresa May
yesterday that Brexit will be reversed by
bitter young people in the future.
The former Education Secretary said:
?They will seek to improve or undo what
we?ve done, and make it work for them.?
It suggests the MP for Putney may join
Tory EU rebels to defy the PM in future.
BEEF ON VEG OSBO
SNUB
CHEF Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall wants a
vegetable advertising fund to compete with
the ?relentless? marketing of junk food.
Around �6million a year is spent promoting foods in the UK ? but just five per
cent goes on veg. Hugh said it was ?vital?
for families to eat more. He added: ?Vegetables don?t get the marketing they deserve.?
MAY ?CAVES IN? TO FRENCH
IT?S MACRONG
lShe?ll give l3 copters l�M aid

THERESA May was last
night accused of caving into
demands from French president Emmanuel Macron in
a bid to land a bumper
Brexit trade deal.
The PM confirmed plans to
spend �.5million on beefing
up security at Calais ahead of
Mr Macron?s first official visit
to the UK today.
No10 also revealed Britain will:
l TAKE in a further 260 child
migrants from the Continent to help
the French;
l SEND three RAF Chinooks into a
French-led terror fight in Mali;

l SPEND �million of overseas aid
in Africa as part of a new humanitarian alliance with the French.
Downing Street last night insisted
today?s summit will centre around
developing the nations? deep ties.
But it conceded Brexit will form
part of talks at the Royal Military
Academy in Sandhurst, Berks.
Critics said huge amounts of taxpayers? money was being spent to
win over President Macron, whose
support is seen as vital for a good
post-Brexit trade deal.
Ex-Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith
warned: ?We have to be very careful
we don?t set a precedent. It can?t be
Corb rocked by revolt
JEREMY Corbyn suffered another Brexit revolt last night as a
fifth of his MPs defied him.
Forty-eight Labour members
voted to stay in the Single Market and Customs Union, ignoring
NHS NURSE

orders to abstain. But the move
was defeated by 322 votes to 99.
The EU (Withdrawal) Bill to put
Brexit into effect finally cleared
the Commons and now faces a
Lords battle.
Tap-y days
THE NHS is ?haemorrhaging?
nurses, experts have warned.
The Royal College of Nursing pleaded to end the ?dangerous downward spiral? of
one in ten nurses leaving each
year for the past three years.
NHS Digital data found
more than 33,000 left last year
? 3,000 more than joined.
BYE-EU TAPESTRY: PAGES 30 & 31
THE PM says plans for France to lend the Bayeux Tapestry to the UK are ?very significant?.
Theresa May said it was important for ?the
maximum number of people? to see the work,
left, depicting the Norman Conquest in 1066.
But the Mayor of Bayeux Patrick Gomont
said he could still oppose the move ? and
hinted the UK should pay to restore it first.

Hope on
pay rises
BREXIT SHOCK 2
STAGNANT wages could
finally grow because Brexit
will mean fewer foreign
workers coming to Britain.
Bank of England policymaker Michael Saunders
said as the number of
available foreign workers
falls, firms will have to put
up wages to attract people.
He said that could see
wage growth accelerate this
year and next year from its
current 2.25 per cent to
three per cent.
And he said that would
most likely lead to another
rise in interest rates.

SAS SIEGE HERO BROKE & HOMELESS
Drama . . Sun?s 1980 story
EXCLUSIVE by ANDREW
PARKER, DAVID WILLETTS
and DANNY COLLINS
SAS veteran Bob Curry
last night told of his
despair at facing life on
the streets ? broke and
homeless after decades of
service to his country.
Bob, 64, a hero of the 1980
Iranian Embassy siege, said:
?It was as if the society I
had fought for all my life
had turned its back on me.?
He is temporarily in a B&B,
paid for by handouts from a
charity
run
by
SAS
pals,
because his local council says it
cannot house him.
The former SAS sergeant fell
on hard times when a business
collapsed last July and he lost
his home when splitting up with
his partner of 25 years.
Proud Bob ? who served in
the Falklands War and did
undercover tours in Northern
Ireland ? said: ?If this can happen to me, it can happen to any
veteran. And it?s happening to
veterans all over the country.?
Last night The Sun backed a
petition by SAS legend Andy
McNab to urge Herefordshire
County Council to recognise Bob?s
service to his country and find
him a permanent, suitable home.
Andy said: ?He not only needs
help, this guy deserves our help.
?We don?t want any veteran
left behind, but Bob has paid
his dues and should be looked
after. Hopefully we can put
pressure on the council to act.?
?He should go to the
front of the queue?
Col Richard Kemp, a former
commander of British forces in
Afghanistan, said: ?He should go
to the front of the queue for
council housing right now.
?He?s risked his life for this
country ? given a huge amount
to defending her citizens.?
Bob and other hooded Who
Dares Wins troopers stormed
the Iranian Embassy in London
in 1980 to free hostages being
held by terrorists.
Earning the nickname ?Backdoor Bob?, he bravely entered
the rear of the building while
comrades abseiled from the balcony in iconic TV images seen
by millions around the world.
He was in a team who faced
dissidents armed with pistols,
sub-machine guns and grenades.
Five gunmen were killed and
one was arrested. Although one
hostage died, 19 were freed.
Bob, who also worked as a
close protection officer for Princess Diana, has since had two
heart attacks, is registered disabled and a diabetic.
In 2015 he sold his medals for
more than �,000 to raise
funds as his business failed.
He said: ?I've been in tough
spots through my career but
with my health now I wouldn?t
have survived long on the
streets ? SAS training or not.
?I was sat in the council
offices explaining my
life to someone
who

no choice.? The county council told
him in November to fill in forms
for a council house to see if he
fitted criteria. He is still waiting.
The only place they could offer
was a hostel containing ex-crooks,
drug addicts and people with
mental problems. But Bob could
cope there for only two nights.
He said: ?I was sleeping
on a sofa in my
daughter?s

house for all of
December.?

joining the SAS in 1979. He left in
1985 and later worked for then
Harrods owner Mohammed Fayed
and guarded his son Dodi.
Bob stressed: ?A lot of veterans
struggle and need help and they
are not getting it.?
Herefordshire County Council
said: ?We are continuing to work
with the individual to help them
secure appropriate housing.?

AROUND 13,000 ex-servicemen and women are

Research by King?s College London revealed
66,000 of the 757,000 regulars who served in the
Armed Forces from 1991 to 2014 will require support for their mental or physical health.
It is estimated that 17,000 wounded or sick
veterans are looking for employment at any one
time in the UK.
Some 3,000 ex-military personnel are currently
in jail in England and Wales ? making up 3�

Changes . . . Clubcard
Tesco to
postpone
its loyalty
card cut
By ANDY JEHRING
TESCO
is
delaying
changes to its Clubcard
rewards
scheme
after
customers objected to a
cut in the value of vouchers without warning.
Bosses said they had
listened to customer feedback and would postpone
the move until June 10.
Tesco wrote to its millions of Clubcard customers this week announcing
it had ?simplified? the
scheme from January 15.
But angry users said
they would gain less
from points and had
received no warning.
Anika Newjoto, editor
of website shopperpoints.
co.uk, said Tesco?s original move devalued the
scheme and gave customers too little time to
spend their saved vouchers at the old rates.
She
said:
?Loyalty
schemes are meant to
work two ways, not one.?
Monkeys
films row
HOLLYWOOD has been
accused of encouraging
cruelty in its use of monkeys and apes in films.
A British conservation
expert said the animals
were often shown ?smiling? ? which is in fact a
sign of fear or submission in primates.
Brooke Aldrich, of the
Neotropical Primate Conservation charity, analysed trailers from 1993 to
2013 with ape ?actors?.
She said ?images of
?smiling? chimps apparently happy to be wearing a pirate suit or
brushing their teeth? led
to a failure to ?recognise
the suffering of wild
primates in captivity?.
Duty cuts
snubbed
THE stamp duty cut for
first-time buyers has had
little effect on the housing market, experts say.
A survey found 86 per
cent of surveyors had no
rise in first-time buyer
inquiries after the move,
which
saw
the
duty
scrapped for homes costing �0,000 or under.
The Royal Institution of
Chartered Surveyors said
its poll?s results could be
in part due to the time
of year.
But
asked
if
they
thought it would have an
impact in the coming
months, two-thirds said it
would do little, while
only 12 per cent thought
it would provide a lift.

with their newborn son.
Stormy Daniels, 38, last week
issued a strong denial that she
bedded the US President and
was paid �,000 to keep quiet.
But a magazine yesterday published a full interview with her
about the alleged affair in 2006.
Speaking to In Touch in 2011, she
said: ?(The sex) was textbook
generic. He was like, ?Come here?.
And I was like, ?Ugh, here we go?.
?I actually don?t even know why I
did it, but I do remember while we
were having sex I was like, ?Please,
don?t try to pay me?.
?And then I remember thinking, ?I
bet if he did, it would be a lot?.?
Stormy ? real name Stephanie
Clifford ? met Trump at American
Century amateur golf tournament in
Nevada in July 2006 ? three months
after his son Barron was born.
She said he invited her to dinner
after they rode in the same golf
buggy. She added: ?Who would pass
up an opportunity to talk to someone so interesting? I wasn?t trying to
date him or anything like that.?
The actress, who has appeared in
150 porn films, arrived at Trump?s
hotel room to find him sprawled in
his pyjamas watching TV.
Stormy said: ?I was like, ?Does Mr
Hefner know that you stole his outfit?? I was actually really mean to
him. He got all huffy and tried to
play it off and was like, ?Oh I just
thought we would relax here?.?
The pair then had dinner in his
room but he waved off her questions
about wife Melania. Stormy added:
?He goes, ?Oh don?t worry about
her?. He was very full of himself.?
They then had sex, which she says
was ?nothing crazy?, and Trump
asked her to sign a DVD of one of
her films before they parted.
He also promised to get her on to
his TV show The Apprentice, saying:
?People would think you?re just this
idiot with blonde hair and big boobs.
You would be perfect for it
because
you?re
such
a
smart businesswoman.?
Their relationship continued after that night
with Trump allegedly calling her every ten days
and greeting her with the
nickname ?honeybunch?.
Stormy, who appeared in
2007 comedy Knocked Up,
CAN KIDS PASS DON?S INTELLIGENCE TEST? - P20
said: ?We had really good banter. He
told me once that I was someone to
be reckoned with, beautiful and
smart ? just like his daughter.?
She said she met the tycoon again
at Trump Tower in New York and a
vodka brand launch in Hollywood.
She claims he then invited her to
a ?meeting? at the Beverly Hills
Hotel in July 2007 when he once
again tried to get her into bed.
But the relationship soured when
he admitted there would be no place
for her on The Apprentice.
Stormy said: ?He kept kissing my
neck and was like, ?Can you stay?? I
was like, ?No, I gotta go?. He kept
calling me less and less.?
Stormy had previously
denied the affair, despite
fellow porn star Alana
Evans releasing details.
Trump?s lawyer Michael
Cohen said the President
?once again vehemently
denies any such occurrence, as has Ms Daniels?.

THE
AFTER THE DISASTER OF CARILLION
SAYS
Left behind
LABOUR?S failure to land a glove on the
Government over the Carillion collapse
exposes its utter cluelessness.
Its more sensible MPs support private
firms running public services because
they generally do so efficiently, which is
why Labour once encouraged it.
The rest, epitomised by Jeremy Corbyn,
do not grasp what happened at Carillion, what the Tories should have done
differently or what should happen now.
It was obvious during yesterday?s
Commons shouting match that Corbyn?s
understanding did not extend beyond
the ?questions? he was given to read out.
And for one reason: he?s not interested.
He sees the private sector, which feeds
the families and pays the rents and
mortgages of 84 per cent of all UK
workers, as the tool of a wicked capitalist conspiracy. To him, the only
worthwhile employer is a massively
expanded State run by mighty unions.
He?s not bothered how anything else
works. Which would be amusing were it
not for a young generation, brainwashed
by 14 years in left-wing schools and universities, lapping up his lazy soundbites.
They fail to see that the everyday
benefits of the Western liberal lifestyle
they enjoy are products not of the
corrosive socialism they long for but the
capitalism they fashionably despise.
It does not help that their wages are
too low and house prices too high.
Or that they have reached adulthood
in a time of austerity after a financial
crisis for which barely a soul was held
responsible. It shames the Cameron
government that it never held a judgeled inquiry into the crash, with bankers
testifying under oath then prosecuted.
Capitalism DOES need a reboot.
Scrapping payoffs to Carillion bosses is
a small start. Likewise investment giant
BlackRock ordering corporations to
contribute to society or lose its support.
But Britain faces disaster if young voters
continue to believe the answer to their woes
lies in a blinkered, ignorant old fool whose
hard-left views have not evolved in 50 years.

NO ONE can explain why serial rapist John
Worboys is judged safe for release.
The Parole Board is barred from justifying its decision, which may be illegal.
Even its boss admits Worboys could
yet be a risk. So we support the crowdfunded legal action two victims have
launched to rescind the cabbie?s parole.
The public MUST be kept safe. And the
secrecy around parole rulings must end.

?CARILLION?S Gazillions!?
scream the headlines.
The collapse of the UK?s
second-largest building firm,
threatening tens of thousands of
jobs, has reignited the debate
about the future of capitalism.
The implosion of the construction
and outsourcing giant, its executives
having made fortunes out of public
sector contracts, leaves a trail of
bad debts ? and is shaking faith in
?the system?.
A new survey shows youngsters
now fear capitalism more than
communism. Pollsters ComRes found
seven per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds
think Marxism dangerous but almost
double that are afraid of capitalism.
No matter that the Soviet Union

economic contradictions or that,
in the century since the Russian
Revolution,
centrally
planned
economies have failed to prosper.
And
so
what
if
deluded
communist ideologies, by bolstering
various dictators, were an accessory
to millions of deaths?
Let?s not pretend that the demise
of Carillion, worth �illion back in
July but now a pile of IOUs, is not
disastrous. It is not, however, a
?watershed moment? for capitalism,
as Karl Marx fan Jeremy Corbyn
declared this week.
Yes, the conglomerate was among
a small group of firms that control
a dizzying range of public-sector
contracts ? from building schools,
roads and hospitals to running
prisons and providing NHS meals.
And yes, its end came straight
after another capitalist calamity
which cost us all ? Richard
Branson?s Virgin Trains handing
back the East Coast service to the
Government, landing taxpayers with
a multi-billion-pound bill.
This double private-sector failure
leaves Theresa May?s Government
looking incompetent ? even though
it was New Labour in the early
2000s which really embraced the
Private Finance Initiative (PFI) that
allowed Carillion and others to
grow so large. And it emboldens
Corbyn and others, who think
capitalism is evil and the only
answer is mass re-nationalisation.
But Corbyn and his band of
followers are wrong. Calls to end
capitalism are juvenile nonsense.

YAY ? Baldrick?s back.
Blackadder?s loyal halfwit of
a manservant, played rather
wonderfully
by
Tony
Robinson. Now SIR Tony
Robinson.
And the great news is, he?s
behaving just like, well, um,
Baldrick.
Sir Tony is a longstanding
member of the Labour Party. I
think that?s why he got his
knighthood.
Anyway, he tweeted out a
message this week. He said he
feared that Labour had been
completely taken over by a
?leftist clique?.
Good Lord, do you really think
so, Baldrick? Bloody hell, who?d
have thought.
And are there any other
observations you would like to
make about contemporary events?
For example, are you
worried North Korea
might be led by a fat,
dog-munching lunatic?
Or that Paul Gascoigne
may occasionally have
too much to drink?
You could write a
book
full
of
these
observations ? Baldrick:
Things I Have Discovered
Which
Nobody
Else Has Noticed. It
would be a big seller, that.
Baldrick made his comments
after a decent, moderate member
of the committee which runs the
Labour Party was kicked out.
And in her place came the
usual swivel-eyed Stalinist.
You?ll be seeing a lot of that in
the next few months.
The
left-wing
Momentum
group, which supports the idiot
Jeremy Corbyn and his grim,
sinister sidekick John McDonnell,
are pledged to purge the party
of sane people.
This has been on the cards for
two years and it?s happening
right now.
I don?t have much sympathy
for the moderate Labour MPs
who will soon be getting their
eviction notices.
They sat back and let this
happen.
And
now
they
are
outnumbered in their constituencies
and in the party by a coalition
of thick-as-mince Trots and even
denser
middle-class,
liberal
snowflakes.
To be fair to Baldrick, he?s not
the only one who has only just
woken up to this. Labour is still
doing well in the polls.
Partly this is because Theresa
May is perhaps not the most
convincing Prime Minister we?ve
ever had.
She?s a few cigars short of the
full Churchill, sure.
And on some domestic issues
Corbyn and the rest have a
point or two.
It?s when it comes to foreign
affairs that you see just how
truly deranged and dangerous
they are.
They loathe the West. They
loathe the US.
Worse still, they loathe our
own country. The party is led by
people
who
wanted
IRA
murderers
to
be
honoured.
People who call the genocidal,
racist terrorists of Hamas and
Hezbollah their ?friends?.
They
worship
vile,
basket-case
countries
such
as
totalitarian
Cuba. They have a soft
spot for the mullahs of
Iran. They want more
and more immigrants to
pour into our country.
In short, they support
everything
which
is
against the UK?s interests. For these reasons
alone they should be
utterly unelectable.
Listen, Baldrick. You
are right. Labour has indeed
been taken over by a left-wing
clique which has nothing in
common with the mass of
ordinary Brits.
It happened two and a half
years ago.
But I have a cunning plan,
mate. Do as I did and leave the
party. Get the hell out.
It?s not remotely the party
you?ve fought for all those years.
It will be a wrench, sure ?
treat yourself to a consolatory
turnip ? but you?ll feel better in
the end.
THE BBC Women are still
carping about their lowly pay.
It IS shocking ? some of
them are on as little as �0,000
per year. How on earth can
they cope?
I think they should resign en
masse, in a very principled
manner.
And then see how much they
can earn AWAY from the BBC.
In many cases it will be about
ten quid and a packet of
Monster Munch.

THE bankrupt construction company Carillion
seems to have been about

Heavily in debt, it kept
taking big contracts in
order to pay off creditors.
And so got itself into
even more debt. It was like
a giant pyramid selling
scheme.
What were the board of
directors on? Ketamine
and crack?
Actually, we know what
the likes of chief executive
Richard Howson, above,
were on. Enormous,
humungous salaries which
kept increasing even as
their company was
disappearing round the
U-bend.
That?s a scandal. But the
Government has questions
to answer, too.
It kept bunging work the
way of Carillion even when
ministers knew the ship
was sinking fast.
First thing for the
Government to do is
honour the wages of
people who carried out
work for Carillion before
its liquidation. And then
maybe rethink this
partnership with private
enterprise.

ENVIRONMENT ALERT
By SHAUN WOOLLER
MICROWAVES are as damaging to the environment
as cars and users must be
taught how to cook more
efficiently, scientists say.
The ovens are responsible
for 7.7million tons of the
carbon dioxide pumped out
from the EU each year ? the
equivalent of 6.8million cars.
Researchers say they are fuelling
global warming with consumers
overcooking food to blame.
Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types
of oven in the EU, with numbers
set to reach 135million by 2020.
But scientists at the University of
Manchester ? the first to assess the
environmental impact ? say efforts
to cut energy consumption should
focus on manufacturers offering
better education on microwave use.

Ferne ex
extra jail
By MIKE SULLIVAN
THE ex-partner of Towie
star Ferne McCann got
another eight months in
jail yesterday after his
nightclub acid attack.
Arthur Collins, 25, was
already serving 20 years
for maiming clubbers in
the horror last April.
He was given a consecutive sentence for hiding
a mobile, SIM cards and
memory sticks in a crutch
while on remand in jail.
It was said Collins used
the Nokia stick phone to
ring pregnant Ferne, 27,
because he feared his
recorded prison calls to
her would be leaked.
Jail officers found the
mobile in September, two
months before Ferne gave
birth to his daughter.
Collins, who appeared
at Woolwich crown court
via videolink from jail,
admitted
possessing
a
prohibited item.
Judge Nicholas Heathcote Williams told him:
?The minimum term you
must serve is now 13
years and eight months.?

MAGIC!
By NICOLA FAHEY, Bizarre Reporter
PAMELA Anderson gets carried away as she takes
the role of magician?s assistant in a black leotard.
The former Baywatch actress, 50, appeared
alongside illusionist Hans Klok in his House of
Mystery showcase in Hamburg on Tuesday night.
She will visit ten German cities with the Dutch
magician after first joining him on stage in Las
Vegas in 2007. That?s what you call a helping Hans.
The comedian, 90, has
spent nearly a week
being cared for by
medics after falling
ill last Friday.
Liverpool-born
Ken was taken by
ambulance to a hospital in the
city after struggling to breathe.
His

A pal said: ?Doddy?s a fighter
but flu is very serious for a

?He was struggling
last week and had
trouble
breathing
so an ambulance
was called and
they?ve decided to
keep him in until
he?s well enough.?

2017 for his 64-year
comedy career and
charity work, thinks
he picked up the

?He went in for a check on
Friday because with everything
that has been going around and
Ken?s age, it?s better to be safe
than sorry. They are just keeping a close watch on him and

Workaholic Ken, famous for

him down new paths.
The ONE DIRECTION favourite, right,
will join talkSPORT?s ALAN BRAZIL
tomorrow to co-host the station?s hugely
popular breakfast show, where he?ll be
able to demonstrate his sporting
knowledge. The singer, who set up a
golf management agency in 2016 to find
the country?s best young talent, will no
doubt find time to squeeze in the latest
news about his solo career, too. So it?s
worth tuning in from 6am.
Niall is set for a busy start to 2018 with
his UK tour due to start in March.
But I don?t imagine he?ll
struggle to find time to
practise his swing.

FROM getting engaged after a
whirlwind romance to coping
with a horrible break-up, it has
been a rollercoaster few years
for KYLIE MINOGUE.
I revealed the singer had split
from her actor fianc� JOSHUA SASSE
last
February
after
she
grew
suspicious that he was getting close
to someone else ? and now she has
channelled her heartbreak into her
new album Golden.
In an exclusive chat, which for the
first time addresses the end of her
engagement and the record it has
inspired, she said: ?Making this
album was a kind of saviour.
?The end of 2016 was not a good
time for me.
?So when I started working on the
album in 2017 it was, in many ways,
a great escape.
?I was quite fragile when I started
work on it but being able to express
myself in the studio made quick
work of regaining my sense of self ?
writing about various aspects of my
life, the highs and lows, with a real
sense of knowing and of truth.
?And irony. And joy. If there?s one
love that will always be there for
you, it?s music. Well, it is for me,
anyway.?
Sombre song titles on the album
include Stop Me From Falling, A
Lifetime To Repair and One Last
Kiss, but there?s no wallowing on her
first single in four years, which
comes out tomorrow.
?I won?t slow down?
Dancing, which I already love, is a
joyous, foot-stomping pop tune about
making the most of every day.
Kylie, right, sings: ?Can?t stand
still, I won?t slow down, when I go
out, I wanna go out dancing.?
This week marks 30 years since
her debut single I Should Be So
Lucky charted in the UK, and
during those years she has scored a
whopping 34 Top Ten tunes here.
Kylie is one of my favourite pop
stars and I am so glad she is back.
LORDE?S OWN MELODRAMA bi
LORDE?s friends are putting an

They are close but not even on

Lorde, real name Ella YelichO?Connor, has made no secret
of the connection she shared
with Jack, posting photos
and a happy birthday

?You make a killer soft

The 2002 AJ129 asteroid

miss us by 2.6million
miles on February 4.
That is close enough in
space terms to be classed
as ?potentially hazardous?
by Nasa.
If it struck, the 0.7milelong rock would plunge
the planet into darkness
for decades and spark an
ice age apocalypse.
Recent
data
showed
there are 17,495 so-called
Near-Earth Objects close

17,389 asteroids.

A DOCTOR is facing a
?significant? jail term for
sexually assaulting four
female patients at his

manipulation therapy.
Jaswant Rathore, 60 ?
who was primary care
lead for the Dudley clinical commissioning group,
? was convicted yesterday
of ten charges of sexual
assault from 2008 to 2015.
Wolverhampton crown
court heard he touched
patients and put his fingers inside them, later
telling cops his actions
were a form of therapy.
Prosecutor Heidi Kubik
said:
?Each
victim
allowed him to touch
them because they trusted
him as their doctor.
?They trusted he was
suitably qualified when
he manipulated and massaged their buttocks.?
Rathore, of Kingswinford, West Mids, will be
sentenced today. Judge
Michael Challinor said:
?You must expect a significant prison sentence.?

MADDY TO SHINE AS CASUALTY?S RUBY
WILL HE
BE COLE
FIRED?
SHE had a whirlwind two years
in Walford as EastEnders? Nancy
Carter, and now actress MADDY
HILL is going somewhere that?s just
as dramatic ? Casualty.
She will join the BBC hospital
drama as paramedic Ruby next
month, and her first scenes will be
on screen in the summer.
Maddy?s Albert Square
debut was in 2014 as the
fiery tomboy daughter
of Mick and Linda Carter, played by
DANNY DYER and KELLIE BRIGHT.
Nancy had some gripping storylines, including her mum?s rape, her
battle with epilepsy and the coming-out struggle of brother Johnny
? played by SAM STRIKE, then
since 2016 by TED REILLY.
The role earned Maddy, right,

Elsewhere, Marlon is

plans don?t work out. But
despite the setback he decides
to take the plunge.
In EASTENDERS, Max
channels all his efforts into
building a flat-pack cot for the
baby, despite the fact his life is
in turmoil and he needs to
return to hospital.
Plus, Mel is in an awkward
position, and Masood?s job
goes from bad to worse and he
ends up unblocking the toilets

unexpected U-turn.

The Kiwi dance pro, who has

paired up
with in his 13
years on the

He even
said that if he

have swerved specific series.
Brendan said: ?I don?t have a

SEAN WILSON, who played womanising
Martin Platt, will be back on the street
for an extended period for the first time
since leaving in 2005, after he spent a
topsy-turvy 20 years in Weatherfield.
He will return to his role as part
of his on-screen son David?s drug and
rape storyline later
this year.
A

source
said:
?Martin
has
been mentioned a
lot
on
the
show
since he left but it
has involved other
characters,
mostly
David, going to see
him off-screen.
?But with David?s
rape storyline, the
writers thought it would be a good time
to have him back properly.
?It?s not a permanent arrangement but
fans will get to see Sean back as Martin
for a good few weeks.?
Since leaving, Sean has largely turned
his back on acting and instead become
a chef, having cooked in several
Michelin-starred restaurants, and set up
his own company making cheese.
Sean left Corrie after clashing with
writers over a storyline that would have
seen his character have a relationship
with an under-age girl ? and at the time
said he would never return.
He said: ?They were very rude to me
when I left. I would rather walk down
any other street even if I had a nail in
my shoe.?

a restraining order to send

Every time I read a story like
Emily?s, it makes me even more
determined to fight for stalking
victims
and
push
for
better
protection and laws.
Perpetrators are either not being
prosecuted or get short sentences ?
like in this latest case.
Alice had reported her exboyfriend to police more than once
but no effective action was taken.
They didn?t understand the impact
it was having on her life.
She was the life and soul of the
party. But most importantly, she
was empathetic, thoughtful and
saw the best in people.
When she first reported Dhillon
to Northumbria Police, she said: ?I
don?t want you to arrest him, just
stop him.?
Maybe if she had gone in alll
guns blazing, she might still be
alive. But she didn?t want Dhillon
to get in too much trouble.
Alice had only been dating him
for six months. They split up
because he was seeing other
women ? but when he thought she
might be seeing someone else, he
couldn?t handle it. He bombarded
her with around 240 phone calls in
two weeks.
When she went to the police,
Alice was given two options ? go
to a solicitor to get a restraining
order which she would have to pay
for, or for police to warn Dhillon.
The warning, or Police Information Notice, had no real legal
standing if he broke it, but Alice
didn?t know that so plumped for it.
Why a scared young woman was
asked to make that decision, I
cannot understand.
Of course, when Dhillon was
contacted by police he was furious.
Twelve days later, he climbed into
her flat through an open window
and stabbed her to death, slashing
her throat at least six times.
During those 12 days, Alice had
contacted the police twice ? once
when Dhillon left chocolates on
her windowsill and once when he
left a parcel telling her police had
confiscated
his
phone
and
computer, which was untrue.
But as in many stalking cases,
the authorities did not take it
seriously enough.
In March last year, Shana
Grice, 19, was killed by ex
Michael Lane, 27, who she
had reported several times.
She had even received a
penalty notice for wasting
police time ? for not
telling them she used to
date her stalker. What

should be available is a protection
order that can be issued when a
stalking victim reports someone,
even before an arrest.
This
Friday,
the
Stalking
Protection
Bill,
which
would
legislate such orders, gets a second
reading in the House of Commons.
I urge anyone reading this to
email their MP today and ask
them to vote for it.
There have been improvements by some police forces
in how they deal with
stalking since Alice?s case,
but there needs to be
more education.
I am plagued by guilt
because I told Alice to
ignore Dhillon and he would
go away. What I should
have said was to move
37
cities, drop her friends, change
phones and give up her life. It is
tragic for a victim to do that but I
was thinking of Dhillon as a
rational human being. He was not.
We later discovered he had a
history of harassment. I am not
sure if the police were aware that
he had spat in his ex?s face and
was ordered by a court to stay
away from her.
What we need is a Stalking
Register for those with a history of
harassment, similar to the Sex
Offenders Register.
If police had known Dhillon?s
history, maybe Alice could have
been saved.
At Newcastle Crown Court last
April, he was given a minimum of
22 years? jail, but that will never
bring back Alice. Stalkers need
tougher sentences from the get-go,
not after victims have been killed.
People tend to think of stalking
as a bit of a joke. We flippantly
say we are ?Facebook-stalking?
someone. But the word stalker
comes from deer-stalking, where
poachers aim to kill. And stalking
advocacy charity Paladin calls it
?murder in slow motion?.
Rather than assuming a
stalker will get bored and
go away, I want all victims
to think this person will
not ? and may harm you.
Go to the police, make
sure they listen and call

ONE of the biggest tests of patience
for any parent has to be teaching your
kids to help out around the house.
At what point does asking your
offspring to share the chores with you
stop being helpful?
Is it still helpful when you have bitten
your lip a hundred times as your
teenager swaggers past the dishwasher
he should have emptied last night, but
you refuse to remind him about
it . . . AGAIN?
You really need a cereal bowl that is
being held hostage inside but do you
break your nerve or stand strong and eat
cornflakes out of the giant mug at the
back of the cupboard?
On average, I have to remind my 12year-old, Finnbar, 20 times to do a chore
and wind myself up as I wait for the task,
which would take me four minutes, to be
completed.
Is teaching him the lesson of
responsibility important
enough to warrant me
imagining myself flying
across the room to act out a
deleted scene from Kung
Fu Panda on him?
Despite the headache
and drama chores can
cause, I have decided it is
worth it.
I am determined to
raise children who
understand the
importance of pulling
their weight, of doing
things not because they
have to but because it
might be helpful to
another person.
Also, I make it very
clear there are no jobs

THE mum

wonders whether
nagging the kids to do

house is really worth
the effort
another. My attitude is ?all hands on
deck? and I want my kids to share that
view.
Sometimes the sea is choppy on our
family ship and I realise the only one
whose hands are on the deck are mine
? and everyone else?s are fiddling with
their phones or tablets.
I do feel sorry for Finnbar as he feels
hard done by, as most eldest siblings do,
including myself.
His younger sister Delilah, five, and
brother Frey, two, obviously have less
asked of them.
Meanwhile, Delilah ? AKA my shadow
? offers to do extra chores and chimes
that she actually enjoys it.
I?m not sure if she does or if she just
says so to cast a shadow over her big
brother?s credibility.
I hate how petty I feel when I wait for
the kids to forget to do tasks, then
gather evidence to use against them
when they ask for a sleepover or time
on the computer.
But I know the only way for adults
to take responsibility is to be given

Here, LYNSEY CLARKE
highlights the author?s top
tips for decluttering your
home and your life.
lThis page features edited extracts
from Declutter Your Life: How Outer
Order Leads To Inner Calm, by Gill
Hasson (published by Capstone,
December 2017).
At home
6Sell unwanted items
online, give to charity,
upcycle and recycle7
WHETHER you want to clear your home of old
junk or tidy up so that you can find things more
easily, decluttering your home can be a great
source of relief.
First you need a defined reason for clearing
out as this will help you stay motivated. Break the
task down into smaller steps, like organising one
drawer at a time.
Just get started ? even if just for ten minutes.
Accept you may feel reluctant at times.
Momentum will soon take over and you may well
find yourself carrying on.
Make the decision simple by asking: ?Do I love
it? Do I need it??
You could have three categories ? keep,
maybe keep and don?t keep. Go through the
maybe pile again later.
Start with the easiest decisions first and adopt
a beginner?s mind rather than let the past
influence what you keep. Think if today was the
first time you?d seen it, would you buy it?
Set deadlines and work consistently towards
what it is you want to achieve, one step at a time.
When it comes to other people, ask if you can
go through their stuff then check with them
before you chuck them out. For toys, involve
children in the process.
Get the stuff out of the door ? sell on websites
like eBay, give away to charity shops or
museums, upcycle, recycle or swap on sites
such as streetbank.com.
6Think about
who you like,
love and need7
TOO often, we hang on to friendships
that are no longer fulfilling.
Maybe you can?t let go because
you have put so much into the
relationship that you feel it would be a
waste of those years.
But maintaining friendships that no
longer work is like having items in
your home that need constant
attention and repair.
If you do not have much in
common or do not spend much time
together any more, it is OK to let go of
that friendship.
Like with objects, think about who
you like, love and need in your life.
Which are the friendships of pleasure
and the ones of utility? Let go of
anything toxic or draining.
Aim to do it gracefully with little
distress and few hurt feelings. Slowly
ADVICE . . .
Gill Hasson
and, left,
her book
Friends
let contact diminish by not returning
every phone call or not initiating
plans to meet up. Have excuses not
to accept invitations.
If you decide you want to break up
with your friend and let them know
why, be prepared for them to react
negatively. Acknowledge what they
say and then move on. For example,
?I can?t listen to you talk endlessly in
detail each time you get sacked or
walk out of a job.?
Once you have cut ties you might
miss them now and again or look
back with fond memories, but you will
find the main feeling is one of relief.

6Disconnect and get
used to being without
a phone and laptop7
TOO much information has the same effect on
your brain as physical clutter ? it?s overwhelming,
stressful and frustrating.
But you can cut down by identifying how many
types of media you use ? texts, emails, magazines,
books, blogs, social media, radio, television,
YouTube, films and documentaries.
Next, try making a note of how much time you
spend doing each of those things and see if you
can reduce your usage for a day. If it?s not work
related don?t read it.
Disconnect and get used to being without your
phone, tablet or laptop.
Find other ways to spend your time instead.
Get out more, whether it?s walking, going to the
gym, rock climbing or playing board games or
doing puzzles.
Make music, cook recipes or work in the
garden. Volunteer and get out and meet people.
Instead of consuming what is readily available,
which clutters your mind and drains you, make
more conscious choices about what you read,
watch and listen to.
How to be a
clutter cutter
Commitments
TOO many commitments can cause stress
and they often get in the
way of what you most
want to do.
You may over commit out of goodwill
or perhaps you just can?t say no to
invites or other people?s requests for
your help.
But there are benefits to decluttering
your commitments. You?ll feel less
stressed and won?t waste time worrying
about what you ?ought? to do.
You?ll have more time, energy and
money.
Identify your commitments and ask:
?How much does it matter to me??
Feelings of stress, anxiety, irritation
and resentment for any one commitment are telling you to let go.
So ditch the guilt. Realise that at the
time of commitment, you made the
right choice.
But what matters is how you live your
life now.
Think about what you have to gain
rather than what you might lose.
Unless you signed a contract, there?s
nothing to stop you walking away. You

may feel uncomfortable and
you?ve got to explain your
decision to family and
friends.
Let people down gently
and suggest an alternative.
Other people might need
someone to fill your role, but they?ll
adjust and sort it out. Be careful about
saying yes to new commitments. Take
the one in, one out approach.
Learn to say no. This is a key skill to
help you declutter your time and
simplify your life.

6Do the boring tasks
when focus is high7
ARE your days full of endless to-do lists? You?ll
find that your mind is cluttered and it?s difficult
to think clearly.
Manage your day using the 80:20 principle.
Focus on the important 20 per cent of your
workload and clear out the other 80.
Write down everything that needs doing on
any day or week. Don?t keep it on different
Post-it notes or in your head.
Don?t multitask. You want full concentration
on each of the tasks.
Optimise your time. Think about when in the
day your physical and mental energy and
concentration levels are at their best.
Are you easily bored by some tasks? Do
them when your focus is at its highest.
Delegate. Review your workload regularly. If
there?s one task that always ends up at the
bottom of the pile, can somebody else do it?
Be assertive. Learn to say no to requests.
Saying no to unimportant things means you
can say yes to important things.

BRUSSELS was constantly saying
?the clock is ticking? when the

Now they hear about speculation over a second Brexit vote,

IT is worrying that Boris Johnson
and Nigel Farage have both said
a second vote on Brexit may be
inevitable. We now have Brussels
fanning the flames, putting more
pressure on our politicians.
The country has voted to leave.

Brexit deal and stop all the
in-fighting.

appalled
at
French
president
Emmanuel
Macron
asking for cash because of his
country?s refugee crisis, as well as
suggesting that we take in more
migrants.
Instead of making demands on
the UK he should send the
migrants back to the countries
they came through, and provide
better security to stop them travelling through France to Calais.

Havant, Hants
CAN the Government, in all conscience, turn its back on a supply
chain of SMEs ? small and
medium-sized
enterprises
?
affected by Carillion?s collapse,
who will end up carrying the can
for bad business management
and the Government?s failure to
address some of the archaic
procurement practices?
Many of the creditors are SMEs
and it would be a gross injustice
if their money, unfairly held, is
lost in the liquidation process.
The Government is complicit in
this sorry saga and we need
action on this and fast.

ONCE again a huge company
fails and leaves the little people
to suffer. Now we hear the
question ?Who?s to blame?? Well,
when this company was doing
well, the ?heads? were getting all

The blame must lie with them
? or was it the tea lady putting
too much sugar in the tea,
running up �5billion in debts?

Your passion profile hots up as Venus moves to your life-loving
zone. If you?re single, getting out in a group introduces you to
someone so special who lights up any room. Long-time lovers
are poised to make a public declaration. Start planning your
next career move and make it an exciting one.
If you?ve left love on the back burner make today your turning
point. As partners reconnect, minor quibbles melt away. If you
are on a passion hunt, put on your dancing ? or running ? shoes.
The One is a great mover. Your co-operation chart has Jupiter
pizzazz. You have a pivotal role in a work team triumph.
Opening your home and heart to new experiences is today?s
theme. Partners have exciting travel ideas to share and you can
look into sexy new eyes at a ticket machine or across a counter.
Aiming high and believing in yourself is far easier and gets top
results, when you let yourself be a little less than perfect.
Changes start at the centre of your chart and radiate outwards
until every inch of your life is improving. So choose your goals
and stick to them. Sharing a prize or project is generous, but
set limits. Single? Venus focuses on uniting you with a
soulmate and it could be someone with a famous family name.
Wedding bells and unusual happy-ever-after promises ring
through your chart thanks to Venus. Two names are ready to
share a date, an address ? and a future. If you seek love, instant
attraction with ?G? can spark super-fast pledges. Job-wise,
what you thought could be just a side-line becomes a success.
Choose an exercise programme with a strong and very popular
social side ? it can bring new love into your life. A skill that has
been bubbling under gets the chance to shine, maybe in front of
an audience or a panel of experts. Venus adds luck to working
partnerships and brings prizes for couples who enter a contest.
Laughter and love go hand in hand as romantic Venus takes up
position in your pleasure zone. Single? The more a newcomer
makes you laugh, the closer you get to new love. Attached? A
lighter approach to shared issues can unlock solutions. The
person most likely to drive luck your way is Aquarius ?W?.
Harmony at home is possible and as Venus spreads goodwill,
you can propose a peace-making event or idea. Everyone who
shares an address starts to share much more. A title or job you
always wished could be yours is now, inexplicably, within your
reach. Talks about moving in together get serious.
Instead of being swept away by feelings, you can think things
through, then make clever love moves. Talking in-depth to a
partner reveals how well your plans match. It?s tricky when
friends compete for the same new love but you?ll handle it in
style. A new family member will make life busier, but happier.
Discovering love can be daring and caring will help you believe
a partnership has a rewarding future. Single? Venus in your
chart?s cash-rich zone matches you with someone who has all
the glamour money can buy ? and is sincere. With strict Saturn
on your side, the bigger the work challenges the more you excel.
Venus moves into your sign and this is your moment to turn
relationships into what you want them to be. Your natural charm
is at maximum and you can reach out to people you would like
to know better. At work, friendly co-operation gets great
results. Single? You meet where international teams celebrate.
Your zone of secrets and self-discovery glows in the warmth of
Venus and so much you?ve been hiding away can be brought
out into the open. From love crushes to cash gains, sharing is
your key to moving forward. You?re also able to read a partner?s
mind in ways that deepen a love-bond.

LET?S

Bingo?.
FIRST
LOOK
SO it turns out the old
Defender isn?t dead
yet. Two years after ending
production, Land Rover is
doing a little encore:
150 Works V8 Defenders,
at �0,000 a pop.
Quick maths:
�.5million. Kerching.
That 5-litre naturallyaspirated V8 bangs out
405hp, 0-60mph in
5.6 seconds, top speed
106mph ? making it the
fastest ever Defender.
It will be badged 70th
Edition to mark Land
Rover?s 70th anniversary.
The next-gen Defender
will be revealed in
November with designer
Gerry McGovern
promising: ?It?s the
absolute dog?s b******s.?
Tough, trendy and
hi-tech.
COLOUR ME BAD
EARLIER this week it was revealed that black is back as
Britain?s favourite car colour ? but what they didn?t tell
you was the bottom five. Maroon? You crazy cats.
l
I?VE got my sensible head
on today. Under-inflated tyres
are 1) unsafe, and 2) lower mpg.
Check yours regularly. Michelin
inspected 500 cars at Tesco
stores and found 40 per cent had
dangerously low tyre pressures.

?I was born in Graz, the
G-Class was born in Graz. As
I got stronger and more

stronger and more muscular.
Basically we?re twins.?
Bingo. Drink. His movie
twin was little dumpy Danny
DeVito. And we?re only a

also
mentioned.
Bingo.

To be fair, Arnie was a
good choice to front Merc?s
new
tank.
He
drives
a
specially-converted
electric
one in LA.
Arnie said: ?This SUV can
do anything and everything
and that?s why I love it.
?Just like I?ve gone from
bodybuilding to showbusiness
to politics, the G-Class can go
from snow and mud to the
freeway
to
a
movie
premiere and look like an
elegant limousine. I?ve been
driving them for 25 years.?
Now
you?re
probably
looking at these photos and
thinking new G-Class?
And I agree. A blind man
on a fast horse is more likely
to
spot
the
differences
PLUSH . . G-Class?s
interior oozes luxury
...AND LOVED BY
ROYALTY TOO
between old and new. The
recipe at the G-Class factory
in
Graz,
Austria,
hasn?t
changed for 39 years. But
take a peek inside and, hello,
it looks incredible with that
20in widescreen dash first
seen in posh Merc cars and
the whole cabin oozes luxury.
It?s also lighter, stiffer and
even more capable off-road
which,
of
course,
doesn?t
matter one bit rolling around
Chelsea.
But
still.
Arnie
added: ?I?m glad they didn?t
touch the look of it. The
G-Class is loved everywhere
around the world because of
its boxy looks. They have
improved it. The inside is
spectacular, the engine, everything is improved, but it
doesn?t look a day older.?
Nor do you, Arnie. I?ve seen
newborn babies with more
wrinkles.

new G350d straight-six diesel.

DIESEL WAR ?STUPID?
MERC boss Dr Dieter
Zetsche (the bloke with
the big ?tache next to
Arnie) branded the war
on diesel as ?stupid?.
He said: ?We have
made so much progress
in minimising emissions
of diesel engines that it
would be stupid not to
leverage their ongoing
benefit on the CO2 side.
?With all the discussion
about NOx, I think CO2
continues to be our No1
priority.? Dr Z also
compared Merc?s F1
dominance to Bayern
Munich in the
Bundesliga.
He said: ?The
predictability of Bayern
being ahead at the end of
the year is higher than
our position and still it
attracts tons of people.
?It is not our task to
change that ? that?s for
our competitors.?

ANOTHER Detroit

Mustang Bullitt. As cool
as . . . er, Steve McQueen.
It celebrates the 50th
anniversary of the classic
film. White cue ball

available in America?
That?s utter B S. One
Ford? Ship some here.
FORD also unveiled
the Edge ST, powered
by the same engine as the
Focus RS.
We?re not getting that
either. But we WILL get the
lookalike ST-Line in 2019
with a high-powered
diesel. And the name of
Ford?s first electric SUV
coming in 2020 is . . .
Mach 1. After another old
Mustang.
LEXUS compared the
LF-1 crossover to a
?fine Japanese sword.?
Yep, a sword. Something
about fusing liquid metal
with sharp edges.
Inside, it?s all about
?omotenashi? (hospitality)
and ?welcoming all who
enter with equal enthusiasm?.
Nice car but cut the kuso
(crap).
ALREADY on sale here
in Trumpland ? and
arriving in Britain this
September.
The new Honda CR-V will
have a seven-seat option for
the first time and there?s a
mild hybrid coming early
next year. That?s right. Lower
emissions, more mpg, no
messy leads. You have been
listening in class.
Nissan X-Trail

Arnie at the launch
YES, Nissan. Yes.
Squint a little ? and a
little bit harder ? and this
is the next X-Trail, to be
built in Sunderland from
2020. It will be less Hot
Wheels, of course, but I?m
liking those sharp edges.
The Xmotion concept,

BURBERRY
FALLS AT
CHECKOUT
UK sales at BURBERRY
fell in the last three
months of 2017.
The weaker Pound had
seen the luxury retailer,
plugged by supermodel
Cara Delevingne, boosted
by big-spending tourists.
But yesterday it said
sales in the final quarter
slipped by a ?high singledigit percentage?.
The dip was 2 per cent
worldwide, with �9million
overall retail revenues.
In November chief executive Marco Gobbetti said
he would plough an extra
�million a year into
glitzier stores and better
technology, and move
further upmarket.
Investors baulked at the
costs. But Gobbetti said
yesterday: ?We are making
good progress embedding
our strategic vision into
the organisation and
remain on track to meet
our full-year profit target.?

The decision is part of a

into three business units
? civil aerospace, defence

Chief executive Warren
East said: ?It will create a
defence operation with
greater scale in the market,
enabling us to offer our

?It will also strengthen
our ability to innovate in

Thursday, January 18, 2018 ...............
A RIVAL of CARILLION was yesterday
sucked
into
the
crisis engulfing the
failed contractor.
It emerged that ministers were closely monitoring INTERSERVE.
The news initially caused
its share price to fall 15 per
cent in morning trading.
It recovered later after
the Government issued a
statement saying it did not
believe that any of its other
major suppliers are in a
similar position to Carillion.
Carillion went into liquidation on Monday.
Building
maintenance
specialist
Interserve
has
around 25,000 staff in
the UK.
But, in echoes of
the problems that
felled Carillion, it
saw its chief executive
quit
last
year ahead of a
profit
warning
and a share price
crash.
It also has a
Carillion
contagion
debt
pile
and
has
warned that it could
breach the terms of
its bank loans.
The company is
restructuring under
new chief executive
Debbie White, left.
Meanwhile,
the
extent of the struggles
faced
by
the
support
M&S DITCH DEPOT
MARKS & SPENCER is to
cease
operations
at
its London distribution
centre in a move which
has put 380 jobs at risk.
The decision is part of
chief
executive
Steve
Rowe?s
five-year
turnaround plan.
It will see the high
street giant exit its Neasden site in the north-west
of the capital and transfer the work to other
locations.
The Neasden centre is
operated by a third party,
XPO
LOGISTICS,
on
behalf of M&S, while
transport duties are carried out by DHL.
Both firms are entering
into a consultation period
with the 380 staff.
services and construction
sectors were made clear
yesterday by new figures
from Begbies Traynor, the
insolvency specialists.
They show that the support services sector ? which
includes
Carillion
and
Interserve ? has more companies in financial distress
than any other.
There
were
121,095
businesses in this sector
showing signs of financial
difficulty at the end of 2017.
It represented a 43 per
cent rise on the previous
year. It came about because
the firms? customers have
been scaling back their
spending on such services.
Over the same period,
financial distress in the UK
construction industry grew

H I?VE
He has been aimed at this since winning a similar
race at Market Rasen and has been raised just 3lb.
HAPPY DIVA (1.30 Ludlow, nb) can put a smile on
our face. She chased home smart Ms Parfois last
time and looks to be improving. This is a drop in class.

KYLE PROVING THE PERFECT SUN
ROSE . . . mission
He?s Just
going to
power on
From DAVID FACEY
JUSTIN ROSE is aiming
for
another
year
to
remember.
The English Ryder Cup
ace opened his 2018 campaign at the Abu Dhabi
HSBC Championship this
morning after a sensational climax to 2017.
His third victory in
quick succession at the
Indonesian Masters last
month saw him become
the first player in almost
a decade to reel off ten
top-ten finishes in a row.
The last to manage that
feat was ex-world No 1
Tiger Woods back in 2008.
Woods? 14th Major triumph at the US Open that
year was his 12th successive top-ten finish ? a run
that included NINE wins.
World No 6 Rose, who
played alongside Henrik
Stenson and Matt Kuchar
in today?s first round, may
not have reached the same
heights but is proud of hiss
amazing consistency.
The Olympic champion
and 2013 US Open winner
said: ?This has to be the
best sustained spell of
golf of my career.
?To finish the season
with ten straight top tens
is something not many
people have achieved.
?And then to throw
three wins in there ? and
have a couple of other
chances where you feel
like you could, or should,
have won ? yeah, it adds
up to a really strong run.
?Now I?m just looking to
keep that momentum going
and to add a few more
wins as soon as possible.?
Rose, 37, will not find it
easy to pick up where he
left off in 2017.
He faces a top-class
field this week, with five
more players from the
world?s top 15, including
No 1 Dustin Johnson.

My horror in
Vegas
From DAN KING
in Melbourne
LAURA ROBSON relived
her Las Vegas horror
and admitted: I got
really lucky.
Tennis star Robson and
friends were among the
22,000 crowd at a music
festival in October when
gunman Stephen Paddock
opened fire from a nearby
hotel, killing 58 and injuring hundreds more.
It was America?s worst

attacker and former British
No 1 Robson said: ?It was a
crazy, crazy thing and I
got really, really lucky.
?My friends got really
really lucky. That?s all I
can say. I don?t like to
think about it.
?I didn?t know what was
happening. I thought it was
something on the stage.
?One of the girls I was
with is from North Carolina so she was the first to
be like, ?Hang on here, that
is definitely bullets? at
which point a guy who
used to work for IMG ? he
was running the event ?
was the hero that day . . .
?We were really lucky in
that we were off to the
side so you could hear
everything but we were on
the way out anyway. So
many people weren?t lucky.?
Robson, 23, had always
been due to return home
to England the following
day and shut herself away
to recover from her ordeal.
She added: ?I just got a
big hug from my mum
when she picked me up
from the airport.
?From there I was meant
to go home for a while
anyway which was probably a good thing because I
just spent five days in the
house without leaving.
?It
was
sweet
really
because when I got home
my dogs could sense that I
was a bit off so they just
sat on me for five days.
?After that you have to

Robson spoke after losing
her
first-round

where she controversially
missed the cut for qualifying in the singles event.
But she is approaching
2018 in a happier frame of
mind than at any time
since a wrist injury threw
her career into jeopardy
four years ago.
Robson is working again
with

Bok ? her coach when she
won junior Wimbledon in
2008 ? and is aiming to
return to the world?s top
100 by the end of the year.
She said: ?I felt I was
stuck in this spot where I
wasn?t getting any better.
?I?m happy to be back
with Martijn. I feel very
happy and super-motivated.?
Robson also backed calls
for the Margaret Court

Tsonga produced miracle comebacks to see
off junior opponents at the Australian Open.
But there was no stopping Ukrainian sensation Marta Kostyuk, 15, who became the youngest player in a Slam third round for 21 years.
Kostyuk, last year?s junior champion, beat
Olivia Rogowska 6-3 7-5. Mirjana Lucic was
two months younger than Kostyuk when she
reached the US Open third round in 1997.
Denis Shapovalov, 18, served for the match
against Tsonga. But the Frenchman won five
games in a row to triumph 3-6 6-3 1-6 7-6 7-5.
World No 2 Wozniacki (right) was two
match points down to Croat Jana Fett, 21, at

In the build-up to this
year?s event, a gay man

So Robson was inclined
to back those calling for

JOSHUA . . . baby weight
Joshua?s
a baby
boomer
By JORDAN DAVIES
ANTHONY JOSHUA says he
has lost the weight of two
new-born babies as he
trims down.
The WBA and IBF heavyweight king was a careerheaviest 18st 2lb for his
last fight in October.
But AJ has already shed
the best part of a stone in
preparation for his unification scrap with New
Zealand?s WBO champ
Joseph Parker in March.
The Watford hero said:
?It baffles me to think
how I even got through
half of the training camps
I did, because of the
weight I was then, to the
weight I am now.
?What?s a baby when
they?re born? About six to
eight pounds? About three
kilograms.
?I?m
six
kilograms
lighter. So strap two newborn babies to my back
and let me fight 12
rounds, that?s how much
weight I have taken off.?
Joshua and Parker put
their undefeated records
on the line in Cardiff on
March 31.
AJ, 28, added: ?I think
this fight should be the
start of becoming a more
complete
boxer,
more
relaxed. Speed rather than
clubbing shots.?
Parker, 26, has KO?d 18
of his 24 victims.
And promoter Eddie
Hearn told talkSPORT:
?Joseph
Parker
is
a
young, fast, dangerous,
undefeated world heavyweight champion.
?This is a real fight, a
real test and I think AJ is
more focused on the
camp and the fight ahead.
?I think what you?re
going to get is two fast,
big heavyweights trading
leather because Anthony
loves to go in there and
fight, and so does Parker.
?They are both going to
get hit in this fight and it
will be very explosive and
very exciting.?
Hearn also revealed that
should
Joshua
beat
Parker, he will target WBC
king Deontay Wilder next.
He added: ?There is a
chance that after 22
fights AJ could be the
undisputed
heavyweight
champion of the world,
and that would be an
incredible achievement.
?If we get Wilder, we
would like it in the UK.?

BIG SCANDAL

STREET SCENE . . . Stok

to do. Walking out on to
the field with the England
shirt on is a privilege and
an honour.?
Stokes, 26, is likely to
make his comeback in a
Twenty20 match in Wellington on February 13.
The Durham star will be
welcomed back by Test
skipper Joe Root ? even
though his absence helped
ruin The Ashes campaign.
A team source said:
?Even though missing Ben
was a massive setback to
England?s chances in The
Ashes, Joe will be fine with
him when he returns. They
have been friends since
they were teenagers.?
Root, 27, is also likely
to push for Stokes to be
re-instated as Test vicecaptain for the two-match
series which follows the
white-ball campaign in
New Zealand.
The decision yesterday
by the 13-member ECB
Board to make Stokes
available again came just
48 hours after he was
charged with affray following a street brawl in
Bristol last September.
It sent a wave of shock
through cricket because,
while he was banned from
The Ashes at a time when
he had not been charged,
the all-rounder is now free
to play despite facing a
criminal charge.
The ECB believe they
had little choice. Their
lawyers insisted Stokes
might be able to sue for
restraint of trade if his
ban remained in place.
With the player determined to clear his name,
the criminal process could
last for many months.
An ECB statement said:
?Given his intention to
contest the charge and
potential length of time to
trial, the Board agreed it
would not be fair, reasonable or proportionate for
Ben Stokes to remain
unavailable for a further
indeterminate period.?
England coach Trevor
Bayliss said: ?We?re happy
he has been made available. It is a complex
situation.?
OUT ON HIS OWN . . .
Stokes in practice with
Canterbury last month
Right call but
way too late
SO let?s recap then.
When Ben Stokes had been
charged
with
nothing,
and
England were heading into
their most important series, The
Ashes, the ECB suspended their
best player.
Now the all-rounder has
been charged with affray and
England are heading into a lowprofile tour of New Zealand,
the ECB will allow him to play.
What an utter mess this has
been
from
the
shambling
incompetents
who
run
the
English game.
The full ECB board have
now made the correct decision.
Stokes is innocent until proven
guilty, so to bar him could be
seen to prejudice his trial.
He has already missed out on
�5,000 in match fees, so to
ban him for much longer could
risk him suing them for lost
earnings, or simply ripping up
his ECB central contract and
touring the world as a T20 gun
for hire.
The problem is the full ECB
board did not make the initial
decision following Stokes? arrest.
When The Sun released a
video of the Bristol incident
which earned Stokes and two
other men their charges, a
knee-jerk call was made by
chief
executive
Tom
Harrison and director of cricket
Andrew Strauss.
Then the ECB stuck to their
mantra that Stokes, who denies
the
charge,
would
remain
suspended until a decision was
Dave
Kidd
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
taken over whether or not he
would be charged.
There was never any real
logic in that.
And while the Aussies were
bullying England on and, most
definitely, off the pitch during
a 4-0 Ashes drubbing, it was
clear only a bold decision to
bring back Stokes could provide
the English with any backbone.
Sadly, his fellow all-rounders,
Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes,
shrunk in stature rather than
growing to fill his boots.
And England?s tail-enders, in
particular, were intimidated by
fast, short-pitched bowling.
As the great Jim Laker once
famously said: ?The aim of
English cricket is, in fact,
mainly to beat Australia.?
And while English cricket
could certainly do with a spin
bowler of Laker?s calibre, it
could also have used a man
with his keen sense of priorities as a decision-maker.
This current lot seemed more
concerned with the idea they
might
offend
the
jingoistic
cheerleaders
in
the
Aussie
media than they were with
clinging on to the urn. Australian cricketers and their media
work effectively in tandem to
kowtow touring English sides.
First, Nathan Lyon tore into
England?s players and basically
branded
them
as
cowards
before a ball was bowled.
Then rookie opener Cameron
Bancroft turned Jonny Bairstow
into a laughing stock over an
apparently playful ?head-butt? ?
while skipper Steve Smith sat
giggling alongside him.
Had England brought back
Stokes, the Australian nation
would have suffered a hilarious
epidemic
of
frothy-mouthed
rage. And their players would
have had to deal with the No 1
all-rounder on the planet hitting sixes, bowling fast and
catching pigeons.
But the ECB didn?t have the
balls to do it and England
simpered their way to a crushing defeat instead.
Interestingly, Stokes still won?t
be setting foot on Australian
soil ? he?ll play only once
when the T20 triangular series
reaches New Zealand.
When the story of the 2017-18
Ashes is told in the history
books, it will be noted England
bottled it, on and off the field.

SUNSPORT CRICKET REPORTER
BEN STOKES? brawl in the
street continues to create
shockwaves
and
divisions
across English cricket.
The fallout ? some of which is
increasingly bitter ? from that
fateful night in Bristol has touched
every strand of the national team
and the people who run it.
For starters, try to get your head
round this . . .
Stokes was banned from playing
in The Ashes even though he had
not been charged with anything.
Now the Durham all-rounder is
clear to play for England even
though he has been charged with
affray, which potentially carries a
prison sentence.
The decision of the 13-strong ECB
Board during two conference calls
on Tuesday and yesterday looks
muddled at best, spineless at worst.
Legal advice ? and the threat of
being sued for restraint of trade ?
persuaded chairman Colin Graves,
chief executive Tom Harrison and
team managing director Andrew
Strauss there was little alternative
to lifting the ban on Stokes.
But most people will find it baffling Stokes is now available when,
if anything, there is more reason to
stop him representing his country.
Those conference calls generated
plenty of heated debate and some
board members are said to be
extremely uncomfortable with the
decision to reinstate Stokes.
They pointed out he was involved
in a 2.35am incident while on
England duty and broke a hand.
Another man suffered a fractured
eye socket in the fracas.
In the end, the open-ended timeline
of
the
criminal
process
persuaded the board to reprieve
Stokes. It could take months or
even years before a verdict is
reached, especially as the 26-yearold has vowed to try to clear his
name and therefore seems certain
to plead not guilty.
If the ban remained, that could
be deemed a restraint of trade.
The whole thing is a bloody mess.
It has already undermined The
Ashes campaign.
England probably would not have
lost 4-0 if he had played ? while
the Jonny Bairstow headbutt and
Ben Duckett drink-throwing incidents became bigger stories because
of the shadow of Stokes.
England?s players, though, will be
happy to have Stokes back and
head coach Trevor Bayliss remains
a big fan.
Bayliss and captain Joe Root
must decide whether to reinstate
Stokes as Test vice-captain. James
Anderson did the job in The Ashes.
The ECB statement said: ?Given
the CPS decision to charge him
(Stokes) and two others with affray,
confirmation of his intention to
contest the charge and the potential
length of time to trial, the board
agreed it would not be fair, reasonable or proportionate for him to
remain unavailable for a further
indeterminate period.
?ECB fully respects the legal
process and the player?s intention to
defend himself against the charge.?
Stokes ? suspended by England
on full pay of around �0,000 ? is
scheduled to return in a T20 match
against New Zealand in Wellington
on February 13.
Even now, his plans could change.
His initial appearance before
Bristol magistrates has not been
scheduled and nobody knows the
date of his trial.
The
ECB
decision
prompted
different reactions.
Former England captain Michael
Vaughan, who works for the company
that
represents
Stokes,
tweeted: ?Think it?s a right decision
to allow @benstokes38 to start playing for England again.
?What I don?t understand is why
wait till NZ!!?? Why not allow him
join the squad in Aussie and play 2
T20 games!!???
Another former skipper, Nasser
Hussain, told Sky Sports News:
?The ECB were damned if they did
and damned if they didn?t . . . but it
does seem odd he is now available
for England after being charged.?
The decision increases Stokes?
chances of an Indian Premier
League bonanza.
Franchise owners were initially
wary of bidding for him in the
auction on January 27 and 28 without knowing his availability.
Stokes was arrested on suspicion
of causing actual bodily harm on
September 25. On Monday, the CPS
charged Stokes and two other men
with affray.
Once court proceedings have
finished, Stokes and batsman Alex
Hales, who was with him in Bristol
that night, will face an ECB
disciplinary commission which could
mean further punishment if they
are found guilty.

THERAPY GIVES WIFE A BREAK
TROY DEENEY has been
having weekly sessions
with a psychologist to
curb his arrogance and
stop his wife getting an
ear-bashing.
The Watford skipper?s two
red cards this season have
seen him miss seven matches.
And the striker admits he
needs to see a sports specialist
to offload problems.
Deeney said: ?When I?m up

There?s a bit of arrogance in
there at times.
?Football is a tough test of
your mental resolve.
?I have a chat each week

The Scot boasts Bundesliga contacts from
his time with Borussia Dortmund, where he
won the Champions League in 1997.
Augsburg?s general manager Stefan Reuter,
Lambert?s former team-mate at Dortmund,
said: ?The deal is in the last leg.?
Stafylidis, 24, made 44 appearances for Fulham?s 2014-15 season in the Championship.

RAFA BENITEZ wants to
see out the season as
Newcastle boss ? but will
reconsider his position in
the summer.
His immediate future has
not changed despite takeover talks with Amanda
Staveley collapsing.
Benitez always expected
to be relying on current
owner Mike Ashley to provide a transfer kitty this
month, as the chance of
Staveley completing a deal
in time for the January
window was unlikely.
The Spaniard, who has 18
months left on his contract, would lose �illion

But speaking to talkSPORT, ex-Magpies star
David Ginola said: ?Do I
think Rafa will stick for the
next two or three years? I
have a very big doubt.
?I think he wants to see
a club who will secure the
future in terms of investment on players.?

The England international passed a medical and

Though the Toffees have not won any silverware

THIS TIME HE?S EYEING LONG HAUL
IT HAS all been put to bed.
Jose Mourinho, living out of a
suitcase in the Riverside Suite at
the Lowry Hotel, is sticking around
until 2021.
Manchester United is his home, his
football club, his passion.
The Portuguese is putting down a
marker, making it clear his work at
Old Trafford will not be done until they
are top of the pile again.
That is now the challenge over the next
four years.
There is a willingness on both sides,
however uneasy and prickly this relationship appears at times, to make United
great again.
Sure, there is financial security, the
�million-plus salary and mind-boggling
bonuses that have been negotiated in his
latest package.
Mourinho will never be short of a
pound note but that is not the primary
motivation behind this contract extension.
He has signed them before and not
seen them out ? notably at Real Madrid
after seeing off Barcelona?s title challenge
in 2012 and Chelsea when they won the
title in 2015.
There are never any guarantees with
By NEIL
ASHTON
CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER
Jose. After penning a new deal with
Chelsea in 2005, Mourinho was gone by
September 2007 ? sacked after drawing
with
Rosenborg
in
the
Champions
League.
A similar pattern has emerged throughout his career.
He signed a new deal at Real in 2012
and was gone the following summer.
Four months after signing an improved
contract with Chelsea in 2015, he was
gone for a second time.
This time, United believe it is different.
He is here to stay.
The money men think he is worth it,
with United?s executive vice-chairman
Ed Woodward convinced he will deliver
sustained success.
United know the Premier League title
is beyond them this season, trailing
12 points behind Pep Guardiola?s lot.
This contract is clearly about committing to the long haul.
Mourinho?s endless quest for honours,
the thirst that turned him into the greatest trophy-hunting coach in the history of
the sport, is undiminished. Crucially, the
Glazer family feel the same way.
There is nobody out there, nobody
better placed, or better-suited to meet the
challenge of knocking Pep off his perch.
Mourinho is the only coach out there
with the experience, the mastery of
English football and tactical wizardry
to outperform Manchester City?s feted
manager over time.
United have overlooked the frequent
brushes with the FA, along with his latest
unseemly spat with Antonio Conte at
Chelsea, to make it known that he is
very much their man.
It would have helped if he did not
batter Paul Scholes a couple of weeks
back, even if the ex-United midfielder
does seem to have a downer on his old
side.
Giving Scholes a ping is not really the
United way.
Mourinho will never change, with his
reflex actions and spontaneous, cutting
remarks something English football has
become accustomed to.

POOR Jose Mourinho gets tricked into signing a

Cheeky Italian TV reporters pranked the Portuguese
outside the Lowry Hotel where he is still living.
But the Manchester United boss seemed to take it
all in good spirits . . . which is just as well considering
the bad blood between him and Chelsea chief Conte.
Surprisingly, Jose was a little tactically naive when
the TV crew ambushed him for an interview outside
his posh Manchester hotel.
He happily signed their United top,
only to be shown what was on the back!
Fair play to the famously prickly
Portuguese, he didn?t get shirty at all.

cheerleaders try to dress it up
but Mourinho always makes good on his
promise to deliver results.
With the exception of Real ? where

has never left a job half done.
He delivered the European Cup for
Porto in 2004, won Chelsea?s first title in
2005, before returning to do it all over
again in 2015.
In between all that he made good on a
promise to win the Champions League
for ex-Inter Milan president Massimo
Moratti in 2010.
Six years at United would be an
impressive stint if he says until 2021.
Cynics would say Mourinho?s options
are running out, that the list of clubs who
covet him is finally starting to dry up.
Paris Saint-Germain has always been
delicate, with the Qatari ownership
uneasy with the added exposure, attention
and controversy he would bring. Perhaps,
after managing a club
with the expectations of
Manchester
United,
there
will be nowhere left for him
to go.
When
his
new
contract
expires he will be 59, looking
back on a career managing
some of football?s biggest, most
demanding and successful clubs.
Mourinho
has
always
harboured
ambitions to manage Portugal.
That can come later.
For now it is about re-establishing
United, finding a way to win the club?s
first title since 2013.
The club are backing him with the
imminent arrival of Alexis Sanchez from
Arsenal.
They still have a shot at the Champions
League this season, with Sevilla to come
in the second round.
But these are short-term goals as part
of a long-term vision.
United have it all mapped out, leaving
it to Mourinho to work out a way to get
the beating of Pep in his luxurious Lowry
suite.
If he does, they will even pick up
the tab.

Furious Conte in a
NOW Antonio Conte really has
something to moan about.
Despite seeing his nine men see
off Norwich in an epic FA Cup tie
thanks to Eden Hazard?s winning
shootout penalty, there is anger
behind the delirium which eventually
engulfed Stamford Bridge.
Whether it be referees, VAR, his own
hapless players, or even the Tube delays
which caused kick-off to be delayed by 15
minutes on a night of mayhem, there is
an underlying sense that things are
starting to unravel for Chelsea.
Oh, and there was also the fact he
had THREE players booked for diving.
Boss Conte did not want this game in
the first place. It was a nuisance in the
middle of a busy fixture schedule. He
wanted his stars to rest while the
reserves saw off Championship Norwich.
In the end he had to put four of his
main men out in trying to overcome
stubborn opposition, awful refereeing
and the very VAR system that is meant
to iron out controversy at the top level.
All for a fourth-round tie against
By ANDREW
DILLON
Newcastle on Sunday week. Two of those
first-teamers who Conte hoped to rest ?
Alvaro Morata and Pedro ? will now
be banned for Saturday?s Prem game
at Brighton after being sent off.
They both walked in added time.
First Pedro, who picked up a second
yellow for a foul on Wes Hoolahan after
a caution for diving in normal time.
And then Morata picked up two
red rage
bookings in seconds, one for diving and
then a second for dissent for protesting
the decision straight after.
And Conte had to call on N?Golo Kante
and Eden Hazard ? the man he has
subbed in each of his last four games ? to
come off the bench and sink decisive
shootout penalties to win a gripping game.
Conte was already concerned that he
had little time to recover his troops in
time for Saturday lunchtime?s game down
on the South Coast.
But Conte?s main gripe should be with
referee Graham Scott, who shockingly
booked Willian for diving in extra-time
when he was clearly fouled in the box by
Timm Klose.
The correct decision would have given
Chelsea a penalty and avoided penalties.
The Video Assistant Referee system is
meant to eradicate all the arguing and
the grey areas.
But last night it was exposed as a
shambles ? just another camera and
pair of human eyes looking at the
same thing as everyone else.
Ref Scott did not even wait for VAR
Mike Jones to give his verdict ? instead
reaching for his pocket to produce a

THE VAR Mike Jones was
wrong not to intervene after
ref Graham Scott cautioned
Willian for diving.
It didn?t look like simulation. Replays showed contact
so I can?t understand, if
Jones had seen all the angles
afforded to him on TV, why
he wasn?t telling Scott he
had made a clear and
obvious error.
Scott showed his inexperience when showing a yellow
card to Willian.
A more senior referee
would have just played on
and done nothing.
With the Alvaro Morata incident, the defender did have
his arm on him but there was
not enough for a penalty.
I don?t think he should
have been cautioned but
Scott was then right to give
him a second yellow for dissent ? berating an official
like that is unacceptable.
Scott should be congratulated for booking Pedro for
simulation ? he deserved to
be sent off and should be
fined by Chelsea. Those
antics are exactly what we
want out of the game.
More than anything, what
last night showed was that
there is clearly still a lot of
training and education to be
done with VAR.

yellow card for dumbstruck Brazilian
Willian. He booked Pedro on 62 minutes
for diving when Angus Gunn rushed out
to his feet but made no contact.
Scott then ignored Chelsea?s pleas for a
handball against Klose in extra-time but
sent off Pedro for a foul on Hoolahan.
In the 120th minute, Scott turned to
Morata for taking a tumble when Norwich
defender Chris Zimmermann put his hand
on the striker?s shoulder in the box ?
sending off the irate striker seconds later
for a dissent.
It will take a long time for anyone to
pick through the mess of this game to find
the truth. Perhaps it really is better to
leave it to the man in the middle to stand
or fall by his own decisions.
Then we can let everybody argue about
it down the pub and get on with life
instead of tinkering with what is a good
game made better by its natural simplicity.
And what was easy to see was that
Chelsea were rubbish. You do not need
any kind of replays to clock that.
They were stale for much of the match,
missing easy chances and playing at halftempo until realising they had a fight on
their hands. Scratch beneath the surface
and Conte?s squad is below par. Michy
Batshuayi scored his first goal for the first
team since October ? but it was never
convincing until the very end.
And that was proved with barely 20
seconds to go as Chelsea allowed Jamal
Lewis to net his first goal for Norwich
against a defence which included Brazilian
star David Luiz.
Sending the tie into extra-time only
added to the confusion but at least those
Blues players left on the pitch fought for
their manager.
All in all, Chelsea eventually saw off a
gutsy team from the Championship on a
night of FA Cup drama. It has been that
way for years in this fine old tournament
? why start messing with it now?

Ref Mike Jones was on duty to

VAR system is now the subject
of intense debate itself.
TV pundit Alan Shearer said:
?It?s a shambles. You have four
ex footballers in here plus one
in commentary and we all think

him for diving.
?Who on Earth is looking at
that and thinking it?s not??
Even Klose said: ?I think it
was a penalty. I think I caught
him if I?m being honest.? Pedro
and Alvaro Morata were also
booked for diving and later sent
off. Morata picked up a second
yellow just seconds after his
dive for protesting the decision.
Conte said: ?For sure, I?m not
happy for the second yellow card
for Morata.?
Norwich?s Jamal Lewis equalised in the fourth minute of
injury time after Michy Batshuayi fired Chelsea ahead.

JORDAN AYEW took his
inspiration from Ricky
Villa to create his own
moment of Cup magic.
What a pity that there
was hardly anyone there
to see it.
Ayew slalomed through
the entire Wolves defence
for a goal he will cherish.
It was reminiscent of
Villa?s famous Wembley
winner for Spurs in the
1981 FA Cup final replay
against Manchester City.
The bearded Argie has
dined out on that goal
ever since ? Ayew?s only
reward is a trip to Notts
County in round four.
Portuguese boss Carlos
Carvalhal said: ?I don?t
know the Villa goal but I
will look it up.
?Jordan is a fighter who
works so hard for the team.
?He deserved that goal
and when he scores like
that I?m so happy for him.?
Unfortunately for Ayew,
only 8,294 fans braved
the torrential Welsh rain.
But in the 11th minute
they saw at least five
defenders left trailing in
Ayew?s
wake
as
he
dribbled through a congested Wolves box before
shooting past Will Norris.
Wolves toiled but in
the 66th minute they
were back on level terms.
Substitute Diogo Jota
had only been on for two
minutes when his shot
trickled in off the base of
Kristoffer Nordfeldt?s post.
But the threat of extratime
was
immediately
eradicated
by
Wilfried
Bony?s 69th-minute winner from close range.
Wolves
boss
Nuno
Espirito Santo said: ?We
were the better team in
the first game and showed
again we are ready to
compete against anyone.?

Deeney will
Troy harder
THERAPY GIVES WIFE A BREAK
TROY DEENEY has been
having weekly sessions
with a psychologist to
curb his arrogance and
stop his wife getting an
ear-bashing.
The Watford skipper?s two
red cards this season have
seen him miss seven matches.
And the striker admits he
needs to see a sports specialist
to offload problems.
Deeney said: ?When I?m up
and running and I?m at full
pace, I?m difficult to handle.
There?s a bit of arrogance in
there at times.
?Football is a tough test of
your mental resolve.
?I have a chat each week
with a sports psychologist and
he gets to see that vulnerability that?s within all professional sports people.
?It also saves my family, the
wife in particular, from
getting a full download
every single day.
?Everyone
has
their
own way of separating
work and home life.
?It?s important to
me because I like to
enjoy my football.
?I?ve
got
the
best job in the
world
but
people
By VIKKI ORVICE
have seen the serious side of
me lately that likes to be
winning and scoring.?
Deeney,
29,
spent
three months in jail in
2012
following
a
street brawl.
But he was given
another chance by
Watford and fired
them
to
the
Premier
League
in 2015.
His goals have
kept the Hornets
in the top flight
for the past two
seasons and he
has quickly become
their fourth
highest scorer of all time with
109 strikes.
But Deeney has only netted
three times this term ?
and his goal in the
FA Cup win over
Bristol City 11
days ago was
his
first
in
open
play since April.
He added: ?It
wasn?t a great
2017 for me on
a
personal
level so it was
great to get back
out there and put
one away against
Bristol City.
?It was a test
of mental resilience.?
PAUL LAMBERT shored up Stoke?s defence by
swooping for Augsburg?s Kostas Stafylidis.
The new Potters boss has been impressed by
the Greek?s attacking left-side wing-back play
and will sign him today on loan for the season.
The Scot boasts Bundesliga contacts from
his time with Borussia Dortmund, where he
won the Champions League in 1997.
Augsburg?s general manager Stefan Reuter,
Lambert?s former team-mate at Dortmund,
said: ?The deal is in the last leg.?
Stafylidis, 24, made 44 appearances for Fulham?s 2014-15 season in the Championship.
By DAVID COVERDALE
RAFA BENITEZ wants to
see out the season as
Newcastle boss ? but will
reconsider his position in
the summer.
His immediate future has
not changed despite takeover talks with Amanda
Staveley collapsing.
Benitez always expected
to be relying on current
owner Mike Ashley to provide a transfer kitty this
month, as the chance of
Staveley completing a deal
in time for the January
window was unlikely.
The Spaniard, who has 18
months left on his contract, would lose �illion
in compensation if he quits.
But speaking to talkSPORT, ex-Magpies star
David Ginola said: ?Do I
think Rafa will stick for the
next two or three years? I
have a very big doubt.
?I think he wants to see
a club who will secure the
future in terms of investment on players.?

DELIGHTED Theo Walcott is determined to help

The England international passed a medical and

Though the Toffees have not won any silverware

THIS TIME HE?S EYEING LONG HAUL
IT HAS all been put to bed.
Jose Mourinho, living out of a
suitcase in the Riverside Suite at
the Lowry Hotel, is sticking around
until 2021.
Manchester United is his home, his
football club, his passion.
The Portuguese is putting down a
marker, making it clear his work at
Old Trafford will not be done until they
are top of the pile again.
That is now the challenge over the next
four years.
There is a willingness on both sides,
however uneasy and prickly this relationship appears at times, to make United
great again.
Sure, there is financial security, the
�million-plus salary and mind-boggling
bonuses that have been negotiated in his
latest package.
Mourinho will never be short of a
pound note but that is not the primary
motivation behind this contract extension.
He has signed them before and not
seen them out ? notably at Real Madrid
after seeing off Barcelona?s title challenge
in 2012 and Chelsea when they won the
title in 2015.
There are never any guarantees with
By NEIL
ASHTON
CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER
Jose. After penning a new deal with
Chelsea in 2005, Mourinho was gone by
September 2007 ? sacked after drawing
with
Rosenborg
in
the
Champions
League.
A similar pattern has emerged throughout his career.
He signed a new deal at Real in 2012
and was gone the following summer.
Four months after signing an improved
contract with Chelsea in 2015, he was
gone for a second time.
This time, United believe it is different.
He is here to stay.
The money men think he is worth it,
with United?s executive vice-chairman
Ed Woodward convinced he will deliver
sustained success.
United know the Premier League title
is beyond them this season, trailing
12 points behind Pep Guardiola?s lot.
This contract is clearly about committing to the long haul.
Mourinho?s endless quest for honours,
the thirst that turned him into the greatest trophy-hunting coach in the history of
the sport, is undiminished. Crucially, the
Glazer family feel the same way.
There is nobody out there, nobody
better placed, or better-suited to meet the
challenge of knocking Pep off his perch.
Mourinho is the only coach out there
with the experience, the mastery of
English football and tactical wizardry
to outperform Manchester City?s feted
manager over time.
United have overlooked the frequent
brushes with the FA, along with his latest
unseemly spat with Antonio Conte at
Chelsea, to make it known that he is
very much their man.
It would have helped if he did not
batter Paul Scholes a couple of weeks
back, even if the ex-United midfielder
does seem to have a downer on his old
side.
Giving Scholes a ping is not really the
United way.
Mourinho will never change, with his
reflex actions and spontaneous, cutting
remarks something English football has
become accustomed to.
It be can be wearying ? but the
Premier League would not be as much
fun without him in it. He lives for

POOR Jose Mourinho gets tricked into signing a
football shirt with ?Antonio Conte No 1? on the back.
Cheeky Italian TV reporters pranked the Portuguese
outside the Lowry Hotel where he is still living.
But the Manchester United boss seemed to take it
all in good spirits . . . which is just as well considering
the bad blood between him and Chelsea chief Conte.
Surprisingly, Jose was a little tactically naive when
the TV crew ambushed him for an interview outside
his posh Manchester hotel.
He happily signed their United top,
only to be shown what was on the back!
Fair play to the famously prickly
Portuguese, he didn?t get shirty at all.

his
cheerleaders try to dress it up
but Mourinho always makes good on his
promise to deliver results.
With the exception of Real ? where
he won La Liga in 2012 but could not

has never left a job half done.
He delivered the European Cup for
Porto in 2004, won Chelsea?s first title in
2005, before returning to do it all over
again in 2015.
In between all that he made good on a
promise to win the Champions League
for ex-Inter Milan president Massimo
Moratti in 2010.
Six years at United would be an
impressive stint if he says until 2021.
Cynics would say Mourinho?s options
are running out, that the list of clubs who
covet him is finally starting to dry up.
Paris Saint-Germain has always been
delicate, with the Qatari ownership
uneasy with the added exposure, attention
and controversy he would bring. Perhaps,
after managing a club
with the expectations of
Manchester
United,
there
will be nowhere left for him
to go.
When
his
new
contract
expires he will be 59, looking
back on a career managing
some of football?s biggest, most
demanding and successful clubs.
Mourinho
has
always
harboured
ambitions to manage Portugal.
That can come later.
For now it is about re-establishing
United, finding a way to win the club?s
first title since 2013.
The club are backing him with the
imminent arrival of Alexis Sanchez from
Arsenal.
They still have a shot at the Champions
League this season, with Sevilla to come
in the second round.
But these are short-term goals as part
of a long-term vision.
United have it all mapped out, leaving
it to Mourinho to work out a way to get
the beating of Pep in his luxurious Lowry
suite.
If he does, they will even pick up
the tab.

NOW Antonio Conte really has
something to moan about.
Despite seeing his nine men see
off Norwich in an epic FA Cup tie
thanks to Eden Hazard?s winning
shootout penalty, there is anger
behind the delirium which eventually
engulfed Stamford Bridge.
Whether it be referees, VAR, his own
hapless players, or even the Tube delays
which caused kick-off to be delayed by 15
minutes on a night of mayhem, there is
an underlying sense that things are
starting to unravel for Chelsea.
Oh, and there was also the fact he
had THREE players booked for diving.
Boss Conte did not want this game in
the first place. It was a nuisance in the
middle of a busy fixture schedule. He
wanted his stars to rest while the
reserves saw off Championship Norwich.
In the end he had to put four of his
main men out in trying to overcome
stubborn opposition, awful refereeing
and the very VAR system that is meant
to iron out controversy at the top level.
All for a fourth-round tie against
By ANDREW
DILLON
Newcastle on Sunday week. Two of those
first-teamers who Conte hoped to rest ?
Alvaro Morata and Pedro ? will now
be banned for Saturday?s Prem game
at Brighton after being sent off.
They both walked in added time.
First Pedro, who picked up a second
yellow for a foul on Wes Hoolahan after
a caution for diving in normal time.
And then Morata picked up two
red rage
bookings in seconds, one for diving and
then a second for dissent for protesting
the decision straight after.
And Conte had to call on N?Golo Kante
and Eden Hazard ? the man he has
subbed in each of his last four games ? to
come off the bench and sink decisive
shootout penalties to win a gripping game.
Conte was already concerned that he
had little time to recover his troops in
time for Saturday lunchtime?s game down
on the South Coast.
But Conte?s main gripe should be with
referee Graham Scott, who shockingly
booked Willian for diving in extra-time
when he was clearly fouled in the box by
Timm Klose.
The correct decision would have given
Chelsea a penalty and avoided penalties.
The Video Assistant Referee system is
meant to eradicate all the arguing and
the grey areas.
But last night it was exposed as a
shambles ? just another camera and
pair of human eyes looking at the
same thing as everyone else.
Ref Scott did not even wait for VAR
Mike Jones to give his verdict ? instead
reaching for his pocket to produce a

THE VAR Mike Jones was
wrong not to intervene after
ref Graham Scott cautioned
Willian for diving.
It didn?t look like simulation. Replays showed contact
so I can?t understand, if
Jones had seen all the angles
afforded to him on TV, why
he wasn?t telling Scott he
had made a clear and
obvious error.
Scott showed his inexperience when showing a yellow
card to Willian.
A more senior referee
would have just played on
and done nothing.
With the Alvaro Morata incident, the defender did have
his arm on him but there was
not enough for a penalty.
I don?t think he should
have been cautioned but
Scott was then right to give
him a second yellow for dissent ? berating an official
like that is unacceptable.
Scott should be congratulated for booking Pedro for
simulation ? he deserved to
be sent off and should be
fined by Chelsea. Those
antics are exactly what we
want out of the game.
More than anything, what
last night showed was that
there is clearly still a lot of
training and education to be
done with VAR.

Willian. He booked Pedro on 62 minutes
for diving when Angus Gunn rushed out
to his feet but made no contact.
Scott then ignored Chelsea?s pleas for a
handball against Klose in extra-time but
sent off Pedro for a foul on Hoolahan.
In the 120th minute, Scott turned to
Morata for taking a tumble when Norwich
defender Chris Zimmermann put his hand
on the striker?s shoulder in the box ?
sending off the irate striker seconds later
for a dissent.
It will take a long time for anyone to
pick through the mess of this game to find
the truth. Perhaps it really is better to
leave it to the man in the middle to stand
or fall by his own decisions.
Then we can let everybody argue about
it down the pub and get on with life
instead of tinkering with what is a good
game made better by its natural simplicity.
And what was easy to see was that
Chelsea were rubbish. You do not need
any kind of replays to clock that.
They were stale for much of the match,
missing easy chances and playing at halftempo until realising they had a fight on
their hands. Scratch beneath the surface
and Conte?s squad is below par. Michy
Batshuayi scored his first goal for the first
team since October ? but it was never
convincing until the very end.
And that was proved with barely 20
seconds to go as Chelsea allowed Jamal
Lewis to net his first goal for Norwich
against a defence which included Brazilian
star David Luiz.
Sending the tie into extra-time only
added to the confusion but at least those
Blues players left on the pitch fought for
their manager.
All in all, Chelsea eventually saw off a
gutsy team from the Championship on a
night of FA Cup drama. It has been that
way for years in this fine old tournament
? why start messing with it now?

IT?S VAR-CICAL
From Back Page
and
don?t
think
that?s
a
penalty . . . he has to improve
and must improve.?
Ref Mike Jones was on duty to
try to iron out errors but the
VAR system is now the subject
of intense debate itself.
TV pundit Alan Shearer said:
?It?s a shambles. You have four
ex footballers in here plus one
in commentary and we all think
it?s a penalty ? and he books
him for diving.
?Who on Earth is looking at
that and thinking it?s not??
Even Klose said: ?I think it
was a penalty. I think I caught
him if I?m being honest.? Pedro
and Alvaro Morata were also
booked for diving and later sent
off. Morata picked up a second
yellow just seconds after his
dive for protesting the decision.
Conte said: ?For sure, I?m not
happy for the second yellow card
for Morata.?
Norwich?s Jamal Lewis equalised in the fourth minute of
injury time after Michy Batshuayi fired Chelsea ahead.
City?s German boss Daniel
Farke admitted his players were
in tears after the game.
He added: ?We have to be
open if technology can improve
the quality of decisions.?

JORDAN AYEW took his
inspiration from Ricky
Villa to create his own
moment of Cup magic.
What a pity that there
was hardly anyone there
to see it.
Ayew slalomed through
the entire Wolves defence
for a goal he will cherish.
It was reminiscent of
Villa?s famous Wembley
winner for Spurs in the
1981 FA Cup final replay
against Manchester City.
The bearded Argie has
dined out on that goal
ever since ? Ayew?s only
reward is a trip to Notts
County in round four.
Portuguese boss Carlos
Carvalhal said: ?I don?t
know the Villa goal but I
will look it up.
?Jordan is a fighter who
works so hard for the team.
?He deserved that goal
and when he scores like
that I?m so happy for him.?
Unfortunately for Ayew,
only 8,294 fans braved
the torrential Welsh rain.
But in the 11th minute
they saw at least five
defenders left trailing in
Ayew?s
wake
as
he
dribbled through a congested Wolves box before
shooting past Will Norris.
Wolves toiled but in
the 66th minute they
were back on level terms.
Substitute Diogo Jota
had only been on for two
minutes when his shot
trickled in off the base of
Kristoffer Nordfeldt?s post.
But the threat of extratime
was
immediately
eradicated
by
Wilfried
Bony?s 69th-minute winner from close range.
Wolves
boss
Nuno
Espirito Santo said: ?We
were the better team in
the first game and showed
again we are ready to
compete against anyone.?
