she would only say: ?I?ll

LEADING Labour moderate Heidi Alexander is
rumoured to be ready to
quit as an MP.
The
former
frontbencher, who resigned as
Shadow Health Secretary
under Jeremy Corbyn, is
mulling over whether to
take up a role at City
Hall with London Mayor
Sadiq Khan.
The move is likely to
trigger a vicious battle for
her safe Lewisham seat
between Labour factions.
The MP has been campaigning to keep Britain
in
the
single
market
alongside fellow Labour
MP Alison McGovern.
She was previously full
time deputy mayor for
Lewisham in charge of
regeneration schemes.
Ms Alexander did not

A poll shows Labour
on course for their biggest share of the vote for

A special

By
GORDON BANKS

THE
FA
should
have
thought more about what
they were doing and made
sure Wembley was kept in
their hands.
Wembley
is
special.
Players always realise it
is a big thing to play
there, whether it?s in a
cup final or representing
your country.
When we played there,
the crowd was usually
100,000
and
the
fans
made
a
tremendous
amount of noise.
It was a very special
place and I don?t think we
should be selling it.
Football?s gone wild with
the money right now. I
think
it?s
spoiling
the
game a bit.
If England have to play
away from Wembley ?
while an American Football team plays there in
the autumn ? well, that
is wrong.
I was brought up watching England teams play
at Wembley.
Wembley, as a stadium,
makes the country feel
proud about its football.
People
remember
the
1966 World Cup victory
over West Germany and
us players running around
the pitch with that trophy

FANS last night slammed
plans
to

Wembley
Stadium in American hands.
They kicked off after the FA
revealed plans to sell the iconic
venue to an American Football
tycoon in a �illion deal.
Old Wembley . . . with iconic twin towers
The move would see the England
team booted out of the hallowed
home of football to make way for
NFL American Football games
during the autumn.
Wembley ? rebuilt with contributions of �1million of British public
money ? may also end up with a
sponsor?s name attached to it.
Worst fears voiced over a new
US-owned venue included a goldenarched ?McDonald?s Wembley Sta-

dium?. Football pundit and exEngland star Rodney Marsh, 73, had
similar thoughts.
He tweeted: ?Mark this date. If
Wembley is sold it will no longer be
Wembley Stadium. It will become
The Google Sports Arena.?
MPs demanded that FA chiefs
hand back every penny of taxpayers? cash spent on the stadium
while angry fans predicted football
fatcats would grab the spoils.
Last night Theresa May also
urged FA chiefs to rethink selling
Wembley because of the fury it
could spark among England fans.
Shahid Khan ? the American
owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars
NFL team and Championship side
Fulham ? made the FA a huge
offer they look certain to accept.
The
flamboyant
Pakistan-born
billionaire will pay an estimated
�0million but leave the FA rights
to gross a further �0million from
matches and concerts.
Mr Khan, 67, said yesterday:
?Wembley would return to private
ownership and the Football Association would be able to focus on its
core mission of developing players.?
Wembley would still stage showpiece games, including England
internationals, the FA and League
Cup Finals and the Play-Offs.
But the national team would have
to play at other English grounds in
October and November when NFL
games will take priority. England

football bosses vowed to plough
about �0million into projects
around the country from the proceeds if the deal is agreed.
It could fund hundreds of new
3G and 4G pitches and revitalise
football in England.
The national team has been
starved of glory since winning the
World Cup at Wembley in 1966
under captain Bobby Moore.
Ex-England star Gary Lineker
tweeted: ?If the money goes towards
grass-roots football, most importantly on pitches, artificial and otherwise, for youngsters to play then
it could be a positive move.?
But the Match of the Day host
faced a backlash from fans.
Martin Baker ? joining hundreds
of Twitter users in mocking him ?
said: ?If the money goes towards
grass-roots football? ? I love your
sense of humour, Gary . . . ?
Sean Gray said: ?Fat Cats get

at grass roots. FA and the premiership are already rich as Fx#k,
nothing will change . . . ?
Aaron Butterworth added: ?FA

The PM?s official spokesman
said: ?Wembley is the historic home
for English football and holds a
very special place for fans.
?The FA will want to consider
strongly the views of fans before
considering what to do next.?
MPs also voiced concern over the
sell-off and demanded that the FA
repay public money spent on build-
ing the new �7million Wembley,
which opened in 2007.
Sport England pumped �0million of Lotto cash into the project,
the Department for Digital, Culture,
Media and Sport put in �million
and �million more came from the
London Development Agency.
Labour?s
John
Spellar
said:
?Wembley was built on taxpayer
contributions so the taxpayer should
be paid back if it is sold.?
Local Labour MP Barry Gardiner
added: ?Let?s not see the stadium
traded away in a backroom deal.?
Officials at the Department for
Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
were last night understood to be
already planning moves to attempt
to claw back cash from the FA. Mr
Khan?s offer was considered by the
FA board yesterday. It will take
months to ratify.
It is seen as a ?no brainer? for
football chiefs because they will net
a huge sum which will wipe out
the �2million they still owe to
stadium developers.
They will also get to keep control
of the lucrative Club Wembley
debenture and hospitality business.
Mr Khan?s bid could lead to the
first NFL franchise outside the US,
creating a British team or moving
his Jaguars from Jacksonville.
Football fans are seeking assurances that the 90,000-seater North
London stadium?s name would not
be threatened by the sale.
It is currently sponsored by a
mobile phone giant and known as
?Wembley Stadium connected by
LONE STAR SHEERAN
First to play stadium solo for
three sold-out nights in 2015
EE.? But Mr Khan is thought to be
keen to profit from another renaming when EE?s deal expires in 2020.
An FA spokesman told The Sun:
?Part of the negotiations will be to
ensure the name is protected as
Wembley Stadium.?
Mr Khan?s offer sparked questions
from Chelsea, who are considering
playing at Wembley for four years
while their ground is rebuilt.
Fulham fans ? whose team is
battling for promotion to the Premier League ? feared Mr Khan?s
focus would drift to Wembley.
Tottenham, who have committed
to money-spinning NFL games at
their new stadium, now know Wembley may seek the same business.

When Harry turned 21, he
described William as the one person on the planet with whom he
could talk about everything.

MATHER?S DAY
GAY and lesbian parents are calling themselves
?mather? ? a combination of ?mother? and ?father? ?
to explain their roles in relation to their kids.
According to a US study, ?maddie? ? a mix of
mummy and daddy ? was another popular title, and
out of the 40 couples surveyed, none used the terms
?mother? and ?father?.
Lead researcher Abbie Goldberg of Clark University
said it was a result of gay couples now having more
confidence to push boundaries. But she admitted
explaining the new names to kids could be a challenge.

Bake Off switched from the BBC to
Channel 4.
Paul and Alex had met in 1995 ?
the year Summer was born ? and
wed three years later. But they
announced the marriage was over
in November and Paul and Summer then grew close.
Rachel told how she and Summer
became friends in 2015 while working in a sunglasses shop in Canterbury. She said: ?We both had a
twinkle in our eye and enjoyed a
good time.
?We bonded immediately and
became thick as thieves, knowing
each other?s juicy secrets. We were
inseparable.? Nights out included
one in The Pound bar in Canterbury in September 2016.
Rachel said: ?We chatted into the
night over drinks and took some
selfies in the toilets to mark the
occasion. Summer told me she?d
had some classy professional photos
taken which showed how fit she is.?
Two months later they visited
The Abode luxury hotel in the
town.
Rachel
said:
?Summer
befriended a 65-year-old businessman we met in the bar.
?He bought us champagne and
we chatted intimately. He was smitten by Summer for sure. I?ll never
forget the look on the businessman?s face when she boasted about
her figure. He told her she looked
sensational and she replied, ?32E

?She was in a figure-hugging

chain
Zara
and
looked

enough to eat. He just didn?t know
where to look.
?I left them to it after a while
and he definitely wanted to see
her again.?
The pals swapped explicit messages about their dating experiences but their friendship gradually
petered out.
Summer, who dated 47-year-old
property millionaire Walter Collins
for two years, pulled the plug for
good a couple of months before her
relationship with Paul went public.
Rachel said: ?Summer?s a party
lover, pure and simple. Paul Hollywood is just the latest guy to fall
for her charms. She surely can?t
believe her luck.?
Last month, Summer posted a
gushing tribute about how Paul
?turned her from a girl into a
woman? after a romantic getaway.
She wrote on Instagram she had
the most ?amazing boyfriend? and
was ?the luckiest girl in the world?.
She began the post with the
words: ?You have been amazing.
You have been journey. You have

the account.
The couple stayed at a �000-anight villa in Mauritius, in the
Indian Ocean, after first joining up
in the US where Paul was working.
Five years ago Paul admitted an
affair with Marcela Valladolid, 39 ?
his co-star on the American version of Bake Off.
Paul, worth an estimated �million, is believed to be being paid

THE
AS STAR SUES BBC OVER RAID FILM
SAYS
Brexit in peril
DO the Tory rebels bent on destroying
Brexit have any idea of the danger they are
flirting with?
They are crowing that Theresa May
doesn?t have the Commons votes to take
us out of the Customs Union. That she?ll
have to keep us in the Single Market too.
They seem to see it all as a political
game with no real-world consequences.
The rest of Britain won?t. Membership
of a customs union negates Brexit at a
stroke. It wipes out arguably its biggest
plus-point, the new power to trade independently with giant global economies.
Half-out of the EU, but trapped inside
this union, we would take Brussels?
orders for ever but with no comeback.
Our great country, permanently subservient to the same club we voted to
leave with the biggest mandate in our
history. A position immeasurably worse
than before, foisted on us by foolish
Tory MPs under the false pretence,
orchestrated in Brussels, that the Irish
border problem is otherwise unsolvable.
Half-in, half-out is not a viable ?soft
Brexit? compromise. It is suicide ? a
catastrophe obvious to anyone not
blinded by devotion to Brussels. We
would be humiliated before the world.
Betrayed voters, including many
Remainers who believe the referendum
verdict must be properly fulfilled, will
not confine their protests to angry letters.
There are mutterings already of violence, even civil war. They are surely
overblown. But what if they?re not?
Tory Anna Soubry and her co-conspirators should not kid themselves
British stiff upper lip will prevail. We
fear the mayhem they could unleash.
Mrs May must talk them round or her
Government could be destroyed. Britain
would then be crippled by the worst
possible Brexit and potentially finished
off by a Marxist Corbyn Government.
The Tories cannot let this happen.
Ruddy hell
AMBER Rudd is a talented politician
having a nightmarish week.
Why scrap targets for deporting illegal

There SHOULD be targets.
Targets weren?t the problem in the
Windrush scandal. Nor, in fairness, was
Ms Rudd. It was shambolic civil
servants with no common sense deporting people entitled to be here.
Years ago the Home Office was judged
?not fit for purpose?. It clearly still isn?t.
Ms Rudd must get a grip on it fast.
Sweet revenge
THE insanity of the Government?s war on
supermarket treats gets worse.

SIR Cliff Richard is Britain?s bestloved bachelor boy ? a national
treasure, philanthropist and pop
immortal (three-times winner of Sun
readers? Top Male Pop Personality
Award, 1970-72).
His 21million UK singles sales over a
60-year career put him behind only
Elvis and The Beatles.
Yet
remarkably
today,
the
mildmannered pop star poses a serious
threat to press freedom.
If Sir Cliff, 77, wins his privacy case
against the BBC ? over TV coverage of
the 2014 police search of his Berkshire
apartment ? it will be a grave setback
to open justice and the public?s right to
know what the police are up to.
Anybody following the court case
would feel sympathy for Sir Cliff.
When South Yorkshire Police searched
his Sunningdale apartment, in response
to false allegations of a sexual assault on
a boy aged under 16 in Sheffield in 1985,
the BBC filmed and broadcast the raid
from a helicopter.
Sir Cliff broke down as he
told the court that the BBC
coverage had been ?shocking
and upsetting?.
At the end of the police
probe he was not charged
with any offence.
Despite being vindicated,
he said the live reports of
the unfounded allegations
had
left
him
feeling
?forever tainted?.
Press freedom
forever tainted
Sir Cliff?s personal
feelings and motives
are not in question.
But this is about
something
more
important than how
upset
he
is
or
the �4million his
lawyers
claim
the
legal action has cost
him in total.
The public fall-out
from his privacy case
could have a shocking
and upsetting impact on
the ability of the media
to report the facts.
It
could
leave
press
freedom forever tainted in
the eyes of the law. As the
BBC?s barrister, Gavin Millar
QC, said, no such privacy claim
over the reporting of a police
search has ever been heard in a
British court before.
He added: ?Parliament had
never
legislated
to
prevent
reporting of the execution of
search warrants.?
Sir Cliff?s lawyers are effectively
asking a judge, Mr Justice Mann, to
rewrite press law and redraw the line
between private and public.
The result could be to create a
new civil claim of honestly reporting serious criminal allegations.
Sir Cliff?s legal team made
much of the ?intrusive? TV
news filming.
To many, the way that a
BBC helicopter hovered
By MICK
HUME
above his apartment might have seemed
literally over the top.
Yet the uncomfortable fact is that news
reporting is often ?intrusive? for those
being reported on.
There
could
be
no
investigative
journalism if reporters had to stop their
investigations whenever somebody seems
upset by the questions or cameras.
As the old journalists? adage has it,
?News is something somebody does not
want printed ? all else is advertising?.
No doubt there are serious questions
to be asked about the police?s apparent
post-Savile
obsession
with
pursuing
unsupported
30-year-old
allegations
against celebrities. It is an outrage that
Sir Cliff was left dangling in legal limbo
for 22 months before finally being told
he was in the clear.
Yet once he was under investigation
for a serious crime, it would have
been both unrealistic and wrong to
imagine that the police search could
be kept secret.
As the BBC?s QC said, Sir Cliff could
not have a ?reasonable expectation of
privacy? over such a matter of public
interest.
Of course it was important the reporting was honest, respected the suspect?s
innocence until proven guilty and made
clear that he denied all allegations ?
which the BBC insists that it did.
But
the
right
to
report
such
investigations is vital in a fair and
transparent system.
Demands for more anonymity for
suspects are the enemy of open justice.
The bigger principle at stake concerns
the public?s right to know ? and
not just about what celebrities are
allegedly up to.
More importantly, it is about our right
to know what the police are doing.
A judge-made privacy law which
bans reporting of search warrants
would also protect the police from
public scrutiny.
Unaccountable judges
with Human Rights Act
Who would want to live in a
society where officers could
raid
homes
and
pursue
suspects in secret?
Is that not what we used
to call a police state?
Privacy
and
data
protection laws are the new
weapons deployed by the
rich and powerful in Britain
to silence their critics.
We might all know that
the pop veteran?s only crime
was
to
release
Millennium
Prayer.
But less admirable figures,
from shady businessmen to
former F1 boss Max Mosley, are
queuing up to stop the press
reporting the truth about them.
Press
freedom
in
Britain
is
already under threat from too many
laws, including those imposed by
unaccountable judges wielding the
Human Rights Act.
Look at the World Press Freedom
Index 2018.
In terms Cliff fans might appreciate, it
shows the UK just clinging on to the
Top 40. We are in 40th place ? down 18
since the first index in 2002 ? just
above Burkina Faso and Taiwan.
A

Suicidal
DJ Avicii
?couldn?t

By SIMON BOYLE
SUPERSTAR DJ Avicii
killed himself and left a
suicide note, his family
said yesterday ? adding
that he ?couldn?t go on
any longer?.
The
musician,
real
name Tim Bergling, was
found dead at a resort in
Oman last week aged 28.
The
Swedish
star?s
family called him ?a
fragile, artistic soul? and
said he ?was not made
for the business machine
he found himself in?.
They added: ?He really
struggled with thoughts
about
Meaning,
Life,
Happiness.?
Avicii, known for hits
like Wake Me Up and
Hey Brother, made more
than �million a year
but quit touring in 2016
due to the demands of
the DJ lifestyle.
He had suffered acute
pancreatitis, partly due to
excessive drinking.

RUSSELL Brand?s mum was

limo after a hit-and-run
smash yesterday.
Barbara Brand, 71, was in the
back of an Audi A8 which
crashed with a Vauxhall Astra.
Its driver fled after getting into
another car.
Nan Barbara had been on her
way to babysit at the star?s home.

said: ?The Astra came round the

straight into the Audi.
?The chauffeur got out and fell.
Russell?s mum was trapped. She had
a seatbelt across her chest. She was
in pain and people got her out.
?She was in a bad way, lying on a
stretcher. She had blood coming
from her nose and on the back of
her head. We were talking to her,
trying to keep her with it.?
The witness said the other driver
was about 25, adding: ?He got out of
the passenger door and staggered
around. About two cars behind were
people in a white VW Golf. They
got out, grabbed him, did a U-turn
and sped off.?
The passer-by said the group also
grabbed a package from the Astra.
Russell?s chauffeur was said to be
screaming in pain after the crash
near Brentwood, Essex, at 11.40am.
The onlooker said: ?A police
officer asked him, ?Are you a taxi
driver?? He said ?No, I?m Russell
Brand?s chauffeur, I?m taking his
doned Astra
mum in a private car?.? Two ambulances were called and spent up to
30 minutes at the scene.
A source close to Russell said he
had raced to his mum?s hospital
bedside after hearing the news and
cancelled his gig in Aberdeen.
Last night he was understood to
still be with Barbara, whose condition was unknown.
She had told first-aiders she?d
recently survived cancer for what is
thought to be the sixth time.
Police said: ?The Audi driver and
passenger, a man in his 40s and
woman in her 70s, were taken to
hospital with injuries not believed to
be life-threatening. The occupant of
the Astra had left the scene. Enquiries are ongoing to locate them.?

Depression gene map

JENNY McCARTNEY
THE wedding of Prince
Harry, sixth in line to the
British throne, and Suits
actress Meghan Markle is
almost upon us.
The cake has been commissioned from an East London
bakery ? ?a lemon elderflower
cake that will incorporate the
bright
flavours
of
spring?,
according to a Palace statement.
And alterations are still being
made to the wedding dress as the
bride reportedly keeps shrinking.
By May 19, the spotlight will be
firmly on the bride and groom, since
William and Kate are again in the
bleary-eyed enchanted zone of new
parents, this time of a baby boy.
Kate has thus been relieved of any
formal role, save the task of turning
up with the wriggling newborn at
the wedding.
All is primed, yet in the run-up to
the big day itself the country seems
to have divided into those happily in
the sparkly grip of Marklemania
and the contrarian voices of what
John Major once called ?the knockers
and sneerers?.
Chief among the latter group
recently
was
the
79-year-old
Germaine Greer, who has ? with her
undiminished talent for stirring an
argument ? assumed the national
role of an outspoken uncle on his
dangerous fourth glass of Rioja.

It should give researchers
what causes the condition, which affects one in
four people in a lifetime.
The new variations will
also
provide
potential
new targets for drugs.
Previous studies suggested genetics explains
40 per cent of depression.
A team of 200 academics analysed genetic data
from 135,000 people with
depression and 345,000
without it.
Those
with
a
high
genetic risk of depression
are about 2.5 times more
likely to have it than
those with a low risk.
The
findings
reveal
some differences linked
to depression also raise
the risk of other conditions, like schizophrenia.
Dr Gerome Breen, who
BEAMING WITH
BRIDE . . . Meg?s
turned her back
on acting for a
life of royal duty
?I think she?ll bolt,? predicted
Greer. ?She bolted before. She was
out the door.?
Voicing similar concerns, but from
a more traditionalist starting point,
was the 70-year-old former Tory MP
Ann Widdecombe.
From her incarceration in the
Celebrity Big Brother house in
January,
Widdecombe
professed
herself ?uneasy? about the HarryMeghan union. ?I think she?s
trouble,? she said. ?Background,
attitude, I worry . . .?
Increasingly, I find that such
doomy forecasts, often borne on
a few meaningfully freighted
words ? ?celebrity culture?,
?divorcee?, ?that bit older? ?
are pushing me firmly into
the Meghan camp.
When
people
openly
ponder just how easily
she will fit into the traditional,
understated,
quietly dutiful culture
of British royalty, I
realise
that
the
speaker
has
?
often
without
even realising it
? distilled their
entire conception of British
royalty
down
to just one person: The Queen.
The widespread
profound
affection
that
the
British
public has for Queen
Elizabeth is partly based
on the fact that although
she has always been there,
we?ve never had too much
of her at any given moment.
She is a combination of
cosiness and mystery, and she
doesn?t get on our nerves.
The Queen doesn?t overemote or tell us every thought
that
passes
momentarily
through her head.
She?s a one-woman antidote
to the excesses of social media.
Please let us not pretend, however, that in marrying Harry and
joining the wider Royal Family,
Meghan is entering some kind of
hallowed institution stuffed with
self-effacing do-gooders.
Even within living memory, the
behaviour of an erstwhile spare
to the heir has often been
riotously selfish.
The
late
Princess
Margaret, the society
stunner of her era,

quickly developed a powerful taste
for
chain-smoking,
booze,
fast
company and late nights.
?More and more parties,? tartly
observed
her
former
governess
Marion ?Crawfie? Crawford, ?more
and more friends, and less and
less work.?
One
generation
later,
Prince
Andrew was compelled to step away
from his role as a special trade envoy
following a scandal involving the
mysterious purchase of his house by
a Kazakh billionaire at �illion
over the asking price.
And his close friendship with the
wealthy US sex offender Jeffrey
Epstein, whom ? upon Epstein?s
release
from
prison
?
Andrew
reportedly tapped for �,000 to help
his spendthrift former wife Sarah
Ferguson pay off her debts.
It is to Britain?s advantage that
Meghan, with her social worker
mother and lighting director father,
has not been born with the sense of
entitlement so often endemic in our
lesser royals and minor aristocracy.
Indeed, she appears to have grafted
hard all her life, not least through
seven seasons of TV?s Suits, in which
she played a senior paralegal, Rachel
Zane.
While some may carp at Meghan?s
background in television drama, it
seems perfect preparation for royal
existence.

re
AFTER months of waiting, Meghan Markle finally
walked down the aisle to embrace the chap ?she
always wanted? as her husband.
But it wasn?t a ginger prince stood waiting at
the altar, but Suits co-star Patrick Adams.
Before her character Rachel Zane shared a
lingering kiss with Patrick?s Mike Ross, she told
him she couldn?t wait to begin their ?adventure?.
And it was a case of art imitating life in Meghan?s
last ever acting appearance in the US legal drama.
In the cheesy streaming hit, Rachel turns her
back on the glitz and glamour of New York life as
the newlyweds head off into the sunset.
It draws a close to seven series for Meghan,
who is also turning her back on one career for the
life of a working royal.
Suits has trundled along for years as the
on-screen couple battle legal cases together,
only becoming mainstream when Harry and
Meghan went public.
I can only imagine it will drift back into relative
obscurity again now that she is gone.
Keep the Hollywood
sparkle, Ms Markle
but Be More Queen
line or spill food down one?s front.
William and Harry ? the scions of
the House of Windsor ? wisely
decided
to
look
beyond
the
thoroughbred
array
of
doublebarrelled Florences and Sophies
that would once have been their
marital hunting ground.
In
William?s
case,
that
has
worked out well. The Duchess of
Cambridge, born to aspirational
middle-class parents, appears to
have the same stoic, uncomplaining
work ethic as the Queen.
Meghan, arriving from overseas,
is also likely to take the duties of
British royalty far more seriously
than the Sloane Rangers who might
once
have
thought
themselves
natural contenders to bag a prince.
They are now more likely to be
seen downing vodka shots with
junior oligarchs on Made In Chelsea.
A Royal Family that remains
behind glass is one that will eventually end up in a museum, gloated
over by victorious republicans, and
Meghan brings with her qualities
that speak to a changing Britain.
Her mixed-race heritage ? a
black,
African-American
mother
and a white, Dutch-Irish father ?
places her among the fastestgrowing ethnic minority group in
the UK and alters the
public profile of the
Royal Family. Some might say that
is purely symbolic, but ordinary
people understand symbolism and
respond to it.
Witness the joyful reception that
she and Harry received from black
Britons on their trip to a Brixton
community radio station in January.
Also, with her espousal of feminism, professed dislike of Donald
Trump and recommendation on
Instagram of a book by the radical
leftist Noam Chomsky, Meghan is
considerably more ?woke? than any
previous member of The Firm.
Look at the wicked
fun had with Pippa
A sprinkling of wokeness over
Harry is no doubt a good thing.
Certainly, no one wants to slip
back to those unhappy days when
the 20-year-old Prince Hal rocked
up to a friend?s ?colonial-themed?
birthday party dressed in the desert
uniform of Rommel?s Afrika Korps.
Still, that was a long time ago,
and of late he has forsworn the hard
partying in favour of campaigns
such as Heads Together to tackle
stigma around mental health issues.
Although staunch traditionalists
may
wax
nostalgic
for
stuffy
protocol around the Royal Family,
the institution needs occasional
blasts of air for continued health,
and
Meghan?s
combination
of
Hollywood glitz and campaigning
zeal will help to inoculate it against
criticism in a changing age.
Recent polls show its current
popularity to be in good shape.
Meghan
will,
no
doubt,
be
discreetly
advised
by
palace
advisers to rein in any overtly
political pronouncements.
Already she has erased her
inoffensive lifestyle blog, The Tig,
which provided a ?hub for the
discerning palate ? those with a
hunger for food, fashion, travel or
beauty?.
The blog was mostly an uncontroversial collection of tips on the
virtues
of
self-care,
kindness,
mindfulness and how to make your
bedroom feel like a boutique hotel
by putting a cucumber slice in the
water jug.
But its contents would no doubt
have been manna to cynical British
hacks at any point when they
decided to turn vicious.
Look at the wicked fun they had
with
Pippa
Middleton?s
partyplanning book.
Which brings us to the only real
Meghan-related challenge I can
think of ? her necessary adaptation
of tone, to fit in with the mindset
on this rainy, sarcastic island. In

The room has a narrow door and a dark fabric

Students at the University of Utah in Salt Lake

closet so they can ?decompress?.
The scheme brought a wave of criticism on social

The Cry Closet began as an art project by Nemo

With the ringing of the The

The ride, which took 18 months to

It shuddered to a halt half-way

THE Hatton Garden raid
suspect known as ?Basil?
refused to appear in
court yesterday.
Michael Seed, 57, was
held at a flat where jewellery, gems and gold
worth �6,000 were said
to have been found.
That is allegedly part
of the �million haul
from the Easter 2015 raid.
Seed was due at Woolwich crown court, South
East London, but chose to
stay in Wandsworth jail.
James Reilly, defending,
said Seed, of Islington, is
a jeweller with ?no knowledge of the burglary?.
He is charged with conspiracy to burgle and to
conceal criminal property.
Seed is due to enter
pleas by video on May 17

on a couch. Cosby said sex was
consensual but a jury convicted
him of three counts of aggravated
indecent assault at a retrial in Norristown, Pennsylvania, yesterday.
Each carries a maximum tenyear sentence, so they would run
to 30 years.
The married US star had been
mild-mannered during the trial
but spoke out when prosecutors
tried to remand him in custody.
They said he had a private plane
and was a flight risk.
Cosby, responded in a booming
voice: ?He doesn?t have a plane,
you a******.? He was then bailed.
He left court without commenting, as did a beaming Constand.
Cosby?s lawyer Tom Mesereau,
who defended Michael Jackson in
2005, said they would appeal the

MIKE?S A HIT ? AND YOU KNOW IT
AFTER seven years away, THE
STREETS aren?t concerned with
pushing things forward, writes
NICOLA FAHEY.
MIKE SKINNER and Co made time
stand still as they brought their
hedonistic Noughties garage back
to London for their first tour since
the frontman wrapped up the band
following a burnout in 2011.
At the first of three massive soldout shows, the boisterous Brummie
was on a mission to make the most
of his first proper time out from
being a husband and dad-of-two.
He tore through the band?s back
catalogue of ballads and bangers,
from classics Don?t Mug Yourself
and Fit But You Know It to No1 tearjerker Dry Your Eyes. He was far less
concerned with the new material
the band have just put out.
Mike, backed by a five-piece band
and two videographers, declared:
?I want my crown back. Do you
understand me, Brixton??
He sprayed champers over the
beery crowd, making Wednesday
night feel more like a big weekend on
the lash. And he introduced two-pint
cups in a bid to beat their record of
selling the most beer in a night at the
south London venue.
It was a signal to send those
lagers flying up into the crowd.
The soggy T-shirt was more than
worth it.

The new 007 movie, which has yet

Director Danny is teaming up with

this may have meant an

New fakery row over whale harpooning fiasco
THE BBC has pulled wildlife
show Human Planet after

It is the second sequence in the

The whale-hunting clip from the
?Oceans? episode ? narrated by the late
actor John Hurt ? apparently showed

ing one as part of an ancient ritual.
But he told US journalist Doug Clark a
fellow tribe member had killed it, off
the Indonesian island of Lembata.
Mr Clark contacted the BBC which
launched an investigation.
The corporation said yesterday: ?On
review, the BBC does not consider that
the portrayal of his role is accurate,
although the sequence does reflect how
they hunt whales.? The scene was said
to have breached editorial codes.
It was the second of the series after
a
Papua

sequence was revealed this month to
have been staged. Similar rows have
also hit Blue Planet.
Human Planet has been withdrawn

by a text from a pal that
may finally end decades
of torment: ?Could this

The message shared a link to a
news story announcing the arrest
of a man suspected of murdering
her dad and step-mum.
Lyman, 43, and Charlene Smith, 33,
had been bludgeoned to death in
their bedroom with a log from their
own fireplace in March 1980.
They were victims of the so-called
Golden State Killer ? responsible for
12 murders, 51 rapes and more than
120 burglaries across California.

manhunt,
detectives finally claim they have

72-year-old

some of the crimes by DNA.

Their bodies were discovered by

teacups balanced on his back. The
masked figure would warn that if he
heard them fall, everyone in the
house would be killed. Then he
would drag the woman to room and
rape her, sometimes for hours.
Between rapes, the house would be
ransacked, mostly of small items such
as rings, coins or cash.
The killer even wolfed down food
from the fridge and once polished off
a Christmas turkey.
And for many survivors, the torture
continued long afterwards.
David Witthuhn?s wife Manuela, 28,
was raped and bludgeoned to death
at their home in Irvina, California, in
1981 while David was in hospital.
He

tormented

anonymous ?heavy-breathing? phone
calls and died in 2008 without
knowing who murdered his wife. His
second wife Rhonda, 66, told The
Sun: ?It destroyed David?s life.? The
last victim was Janelle Cruz, 18,
raped and beaten to death in Irvine,
southern California, in 1986.
Then, just as suddenly as the terror
had started, it suddenly ceased.
Sacramento district attorney Anne
Marie Schubert called the case ?the
most profilic unsolved serial killing
case probably in modern history.?
?Police listened to news
of the arrest in disbelief?
Interest was reignited in February
this year when a new book about the
case, I?ll Be Gone In The Dark,
became a best-seller. Its author,
journalist Michelle McNamara, had
died suddenly aged 46 in March 2016
but her widower, US comedian

announced on Instagram after the

But asked if Michelle?s work played
any role in the arrest, Sheriff Scott
Jones said: ?The answer is no.?
Sacramento cops found suspect
DeAngelo in an unassuming home
in the quiet suburb of Citrus Heights,
where he was arrested in the early
hours of Wednesday.
Detectives allege that DNA from
the ex-cop and US Navy veteran
links him to the crimes, although
they have not explained how his
name first came to their attention.
Between 1973 and 1976 DeAngelo
had worked as a cop just ten miles
from the burglaries in Visalia.
He moved north to a Sacramento
police department in 1976, but quit in
1979 after he was caught shoplifting a
hammer and dog repellent.
For the next 27 years the divorced
father-of-three worked in a grocery
shop
distribution
centre
before
retiring. Retired officers including
Carol Daly, who interviewed many of
the rape victims, listened to the news
of the arrest in disbelief.
She said: ?There?s not been a night
I went to bed before I closed my
eyes that I didn?t think about what
those victims went through.
DeAngelo has been charged with
eight murders, including dog-walking
couple Brian and Kate Maggiore and
Jennifer?s
father
and
stepmother
Lyman and Charlene Smith.
He is expected to face further
charges and the death penalty if he
is found guilty ? but Jennifer says
this would not be true justice.
She said: ?If he is guilty, I do not
want him on death row. I want him
afraid every minute of every day, just
like he left everybody else.
?I want this guy to be terrorised
and know what fear is, by being
around regular criminals.?

Married lover?s
so good in bed
Dear Deidre
I AM madly in love with
a guy at work and we
have the best-ever sex ?
but he says he can?t
leave his wife.
He is 49, I am 27. He joined the
company two years ago and we
clicked from day one.
We started having lunch together
then one Friday he suggested
going to a pub for lunch. I was
thrilled just to be walking along
beside him. Things started getting
heated between us in the car and
we met after work and drove to a
quiet spot. We kissed passionately
and it led to us having sex on the
back seat.
That was the start of our affair
that has lasted to this day. The
sex is amazing but it?s so much
more than that. The connection is
just incredible.
I am completely in love with
him. Even knowing he will not
leave his wife, I still cannot stay
away.
I know he feels the same about
me. He doesn?t take his eyes off
me when we are together. He says
he wishes he was free but he has

three children and can?t leave his
wife.
I am not free either. I have been
married for eight years to a lovely
man who adores me. He is sweet,
kind and caring but the relationship is boring. We never had the
passion that I feel for my lover.
Until now, I thought that was only
written about in novels.
There have been times when we
have cooled it, especially when he
goes on holiday with his wife. I
miss him so much and tell myself
I cannot keep going through this
pain and heartache. But within
days of him coming back we are
together again.
We manage to spend a lot of
time together during the week
because he lives so far away from
work he spends some nights in a
hotel. I have become skilled at
lying to my husband so I can
sneak nights away.
I want to be with him so much
but what can I do if he refuses to
leave his wife?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: And my guess is he
always will. The passion you feel
surges through your words but for him
you are a delicious bolt-on to a settled
married life and family. He is not going
to rip up his and their world.
A passionate affair feels very
exciting but you and your lover are at
very different life stages. Would you
really want all the same things for the
future, even if you were both free? You
probably want a family of your own, he
probably doesn?t want to start again.
You have an adoring husband you?re
taking for granted. You should be able
to have exciting sex with him if you put
some of the energy you have put into
your affair into your marriage. Break
with your lover ? but how about a hotel
rendezvous with your husband?

She makes excuses saying
she is fat and wants to lose

she is perfect.

DESPITE earning five times
what I do, my wife splits the
household bills 50-50.
We are both 42 and have a
son aged nine. My wife loves
her job, works 70-hour weeks
and is well paid. I had a good
job until I was made
redundant a year ago,
though I always worked
normal hours so I could be
here for our son after school.
I have only been able to
find part-time work since and
now earn just �,000 a year.
I have been dipping into
savings and my pension-pot
but soon I?ll have nothing left.
My wife knows my financial
situation but has never
offered to help out, though I
discovered her hidden bank
statements and she has
more than �0,000 in four
accounts. I feel let down but
what can I do?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You seem
to be waiting for your wife to
offer but have you asked
her to contribute more?
Maybe she feels safer
with savings stashed away
but you are a family and it?s
only right she contributes
proportionately. Money
causes more rows between
couples than sex but my

explains how to work out
fair shares and could help
you talk it over with her.

BRITS have gone batty for online
dating but can you really find
love at the touch of a button?
This week Fabulous columnist
Tinderella goes on a second date
with Wes The Sneezer.
THE Sneezer has redeemed
himself. Yes, he snotted on my
hand by accident but that is
no reason we can?t go on a
second date.
I guess in light of my ex, Crazy
Will, I?m reassessing my
definition of deal breakers.
So when Wes asked if I
wanted to watch a mate of his run
the marathon I thought, ?Meh,
why not??
To be fair, once the hideous
intimacy of Sneezegate was
laughed nervously away, we had
a good time on that first date.
Wes is kind of hilarious. And
clear all that bacteria off his face,
he?d be pretty hunky. So I figured
he deserved a second chance ? I
know I?d want to be given one
(that?s what she said).
The only snag was his choice
of date. I know it makes me a bad
person but I hate the marathon.
The endless keenos, the wacky
costumes, the road closures . . .
this miserable cow normally
stays well clear.
But Wes doesn?t know that. So
we meet near Tower Bridge to
watch his mate Paul pace by in
the heat.
My first mistake was wearing
wedges.
Bump, bump, bump
For some reason I?d focused
more on the lunch afterwards
than the bit where we stood
along the route with a million
cheering, sweaty tourists.
My cramped toes telegraph
their distress. After ten minutes
someone stands on them.
Wes is oblivious to my misery.
Beaming, he turns to me and
says: ?Isn?t this amazing??
?Yeah,? I reply. Then I upgrade
it to: ?Yes, it really is.?
Except it?s not amazing, it?s the
absolute worst.
My T-shirt is sticking to my
back, my feet are killing me, I?m
premenstrual and a woman with a
pushchair behind me keeps
banging it into my ankles. Bump,
bump, bump.
Through gritted teeth, I try to
tell Wes how moving watching all
these determined people is.
He agrees, says he?s coming
every year and might even take
part himself next year.
?Me too,? I say, clearly delirious
from the heat.
My face is starting to burn
because I?m not wearing
suncream so my cheeks are
turning as red as my crippled toes.
Then those effing pushchair
wheels scuff my ankles again.
At that point, I break. Swivelling
round, I snap: ?Look, will you just
f*** off!?
But Pushchair Mum has moved.
And I?ve just sworn at a teenage
boy in a wheelchair instead.

HOW AND WHEN TO TEACH CHILDREN LIFE SKILLS
PARENTS are being urged to
help ensure kids master
essential life skills, after it
emerged many pupils
struggle to tell the time.
The Sun revealed this week
that traditional clocks were
being replaced for digital
ones, as youngsters rely more
on their phones than a watch
or clock to tell the time.
But parenting expert Liat
Hughes Joshi says: ?Ideally,
they should be able to tell the
time by age six or seven.
?Teaching such skills
requires time but kids would
rather be online, or they have
mountains of homework.?
Ms Hughes Joshi, author of
Five Minute Parenting Fixes,
gives advice on how, and at
what age, parents can better
prepare their children.
Kids should be
able to tell the
time by seven
CLEANING ? AGE 3
WHO wants to live in a pigsty?
Your teenager may seem
perfectly happy to, but it is not
hygienic or pleasant.
Start them young ? tidying
toys and making their bed from
age three or four. As they get
older, teach them how to clean
the bathroom and kitchen or to
vacuum and dust.
Persuading children that
cleaning is fun can be hard,
but you can liven it up with
music or podcasts.
BUDGETING ? AGE 6
IF children master money
issues before they leave
home, you are less likely to
have to bail them out.
Get them working on
balancing their pocket money
as soon as they can do the
maths. If they want a new toy,
get them to save pocket money
? and keep a log together.
By age six, they should be
able to work out how long they
need to save for a � Lego
set.
LETTER WRITING -? AGE 7
A PROPER letter can create
more impact than an email
when applying for a job or
penning a complaint.
Depending on your child?s
literacy skills, you should aim
to have them putting pen to
paper from age seven. Ensure
your kids know how
to craft both a printed letter
and a handwritten one ?
nowadays the latter might help
them to stand out from the
crowd.
TELLING THE TIME ? AGE 7
SOMETIMES your child might
have to turn off his or her
smartphone and rely instead
on a traditional clock.
Exam halls will not allow
tech ? so even a smartwatch
might have to be powered
down. Use some non-digital
clocks at home, with numbers
and clear markings and, by
seven, ask your child the time
as you go about your day, until
time-telling is firmly
established.
TIE SHOELACES ? AGE 8
IN this age of Velcro shoes,
kids learn to tie shoelaces
later than ever ? but they still
need to do so, no matter how
much it tries your patience
and theirs initially.
They should be able to loop
and swoop by the age of
seven or eight.
There are some brilliant
YouTube video tutorials on this
if you are struggling to teach it.
Search for the ?bunny ears?
method.
MAP READING ? AGE 9
YES, we have map apps on
phones but what if you are lost
and out of battery or reception?
Reading a map the oldfashioned way is quick to
learn. Kids should get the gist
by age eight or nine and a fam-
ily hike is a way to teach it.
Treat it like an adventure and
get children to lead the way
with an Ordnance Survey map.
It is great exercise and is a way
to bond out in the fresh air ?
away from gadgets.
COOKING ? AGE 11
SHOWING your child how to
cook five to ten basic meals is
a great way to teach healthy,
affordable living and will boost
popularity with future
flatmates and partners.
They should be able to make
beans on toast by age 11, and
by their mid-teens whip up
pasta with homemade sauce.
Start when they are still
?Mummy?s little helper? and, as
they grow up, work on recipes
together.
SEWING ? AGE 11
YOUR child can go to Primark
to replace that ripped tee or
torn trousers for a few quid ?
but what if they are
irreplaceable favourites?
And it is better for the
environment, and wallets, to
prolong clothing?s lifespan.
Careful, older primary school
kids aged 11 and up can
usually use a needle and
thread but will, initially, require
supervision. Start with a
larger, blunter needle.
LAUNDRY ? AGE 13
THEY more the kids do, the
less you will have to.
Start them young by getting
them to play fun games of
sorting the lights from the
darks and filling the machine.
They should be able to do a
load of laundry by their early
teens but do not trust them
with delicates or woollens.
Washing label symbols can
be baffling, so look them up
online and print and laminate
a guide to refer to.
CHANGE A BULB ? AGE 15
WE cannot all call on a
handyman as soon as we want
to use a new appliance and
sometimes a lightbulb needs
changing right now.
Given safety issues,
changing a lightbulb or wiring
a plug is best kept until midteens, even then supervised.
If your plug-wiring skills are
a bit rusty, check out a
YouTube tutorial together or
get an old hand, such as a
grandparent, on board.

YOU NEED:
2 cups puffed
buckwheat/rice
3 tbsp smooth peanut
butter
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 packs white-chocolate
Yumm snacks
METHOD: Gently heat the coconut oil,
honey and peanut butter until melted and
stir together until well combined.
Pour this mixture over the buckwheat
puffs and mix well to ensure everything is
evenly coated. Stir through the white
chocolate Yumm snacks and pour the
mixture into a lined dish. Firmly press down
with your hand or a spatula to smooth out
the mixture. You can use the greaseproof
paper to help with this and avoid
everything sticking to your hands. Pop into
the freezer for at least three hours to set
before slicing into portions.

COVER UP
YOUR SPOTS
WHITEHEADS: ?This needs a
concealer with a thicker
consistency to help adhere to the
mound,? says Francesca. ?Use a
precision brush for application.
Avoid covering the good skin
around it and keep the fullcoverage concealer to the spot
itself, creating the illusion of
healthy skin overall.?
Try a full-coverage, heavy-duty
concealer, like Collection?s
Lasting Perfection Concealer,
�19 (boots.com).
DRY AND FLAKY: ?This one is all about
prep. Start with a hydrating mist on the
affected area and follow
with a small amount of
moisturiser before using a
lightweight concealer.
Apply everything sparingly,
as layering too many
products on will dry out
the area more.?
Try the Benefit Boi-Ing
Hydrating Concealer,
�.50
(lookfantastic.com).
OILY SPOTS: ?Stay away
from oil-based foundations,
concealers and
moistursers. These types of
spots will need touch-ups
during the day, so try using
a setting spray to keep the
concealer in place for
longer.?
The NYX Professional
Make Up Setting Spray, �(cultbeauty.co.uk), is oilfree and will leave your skin
with a matte finish.
NEED a quick
fix to hide a big
blemish? Sometimes a
slick of concealer won?t
do. SOPHIE BRONSTEIN
gets the top tips from
make-up artist and
Collection Cosmetics
ambassador Francesca
Neill on how to beat
the blackheads.
BLACKHEADS: ?Don?t
opt for a radiant
foundation, as this will
only highlight them. Go
for a matte finish base to
make skin look
smoother. You can
always add a glow later.?
Grab the B. Flawless
Matte Foundation, �99
(superdrug.com).
ACNE SCARS: ?These can
be frustrating, as they stick
around. Try sticking with a
full-coverage concealer and
foundation to hide them and
incorporate products into
your skincare regime that
help to fade scars.?
For a full coverage
formula that won?t budge,
invest in Urban Decay?s
Waterproof Full-Coverage
All Nighter Concealer, �
(urbandecay.co.uk)..
BOILS: ?Cancel out the
redness with a green
colour corrector but
don?t go overboard.
Apply it directly to the
blemish so you?re not
left with a big green area
on your face.?

BECOMING a parent is never easy.
According to pre and postnatal charity
Pandas, one in seven new parents
experiences postnatal depression.
And 80 per cent of the mothers it
polled believe there is not enough
support for pre or postnatal mental
illness.
TV presenter Anna Williamson, 36,
understands these struggles all too
well. To the outside world, it seemed
she had a perfect life after finding fame
on children?s TV. But behind closed
doors all was not well.
At 25, she started suffering from
anxiety and panic attacks, before
being diagnosed with generalised
anxiety disorder.
Then Enzo, her son with husband
Alex, was born in September 2016 and
Anna was diagnosed with postnatal
anxiety and birth trauma.
She has since used her experiences
to raise awareness about anxiety,
joining mental health charity Mind as
an official ambassador. Now she is a
qualified counsellor, life coach and
practitioner of master neuro-linguistic
programming (NLP).
In an exclusive extract from her new
book, Breaking Mum & Dad, Anna
reveals her tips for looking after your
mental health post-baby.
EDUCATE yourself about the
symptoms of postnatal mental health.
Look out for feelings of persistent
sadness, feeling detached from life and a
lack of enjoyment and loss of interest in
the wider world.
Remember that asking for help from
your GP or health visitor doesn?t make
you a bad person.
It actually communicates something
quite useful to your baby: ?It?s OK to ask
for support. It?s OK for you to talk about
feelings.?
These messages will be useful as your
child grows older and learns to regulate
their own emotions.
Ask yourself whether there were
traumatic aspects of the birth process.
The lack of control many women
experience can stay with you.
You may or may not be healed
physically but are there any
psychological wounds of giving birth
that feel raw?
If you have difficult memories and
these pop up and upset you daily, it?s
helpful to face them and deal with them.
The idea is that if you process a
traumatic memory, it is less likely to stay
with you and negatively impact you. You
may want to do this with a professional
and think about what the difficult aspect
meant to you or about you.
Find one simple thing to do for
yourself each day.
For many parents, this is very difficult
in the early days, especially if you have
older children. But have a think: Is there a
ten-minute window in which you could
focus on yourself?
Make sure you include lots of realistic
activities that can be done while you are
with your baby, such as deep breathing,
talking to another parent or listening
to something specific on the radio.

It may not feel like it but you have control in cash terms as the
sun in your financial chart comes up with smarter ways to
spend and save. If you are looking for love, the third time you
meet or text someone is key. Already settled? True talking isn?t
always easy but it helps now the moon adds understanding.
As Neptune inspires sensitivity in your friendship zone, you can
offer or accept a second chance. Be sure everyone involved
knows how far this chance goes. Your sign beams with goodwill
and this can spark some high-stakes home questions. Luck
links you to a team or firm whose logo features stars in the sky.
If you were waiting for the perfect moment to start ? or resume ?
a fitness transformation, your chart tells you to begin at a
gentle pace this time. All the commitment you need is right
there inside you. In love, too, get ready to play a central role
where once you may have felt like an extra.
Emotionally, this is such a together day for you. Closeness and
pure, simple love set the standards and you can feel that core of
doubt or misunderstanding dissolve. The sun warms up your
social sector and last-minute events work out so well. Cash
luck is linked to favourite football colours.
You have the strength and inner resolve to be whatever you
want to be, especially when it comes to work and organising
relationships. Respond by listening and considering others?
opinions . . . but still trust your own judgment. You can find
your love destiny in a shop you have visited many times before.
There is such an element of surprise in your chart ? a sense that
anything is possible. This is a breakthrough emotionally. A
stalemate ends and two people can reach out to each other and
those around them. You will be at the centre of this. Travel plans
work best when made by the calmest member of a group.
Your home zone is powered by Pluto, so a family set-up is ready
to change in some very positive ways. You are the one with the
ideas and self-belief to make good things happen. Partners
really talk to each other again and a time of second-guessing
ends. Single? A potential passion partner smiles in the gym.
With the hard edge of steely Saturn softened by the moon,
someone who rarely shows emotions opens up. What you
thought would only be a secret crush turns into a genuine
romance. The moon makes you a great listener, while your need
to step in and solve everyone else?s problems can go.
New faces and projects will soon bring your working life to a
crossroads. With your mind calm, decide if an ambition matters
enough to work long hours and cut back on fun. The Venus
effect helps you and a partner feel at ease with each other. If
you are ready to start a new romance, check out an ?A? name.
If you feel unsure which direction to take next, in love and at
work, that is the Pluto effect. It is a healthy happening for your
future because you will calmly think all options through instead
of sprinting into something new. If you are single, passion waits
where a performer asks for volunteers to join him on stage.
Whether you want to prove how businesslike you can be at a
meeting or charm a partner into seeing things your way, you
can do it. You see the benefits and challenges of family life to
help a relative step past a pride barrier. With Venus in your heart
chart, a night in with your love has amazing consequences.
If you want key people to appreciate you, make your case with a
quiet confidence, not a show of bravado. Later, Neptune and
the moon are dedicated to proving there is a soulmate out there
for you. A search for a new home is making some progress,
though it takes you to an unusual place.

?A BIT of consideration for humanity
goes a long way,?
says Frank Turner
when explaining the
title of his new album
Be More Kind.
the BIG
INTERVIEW
A couple of years ago the
British singer and songwriter
had been reading a collection
of poetry by Australian writer
and poet Clive James when
one line made him stop and
sit up.
The poem was called Le鏾ns
Des T閚鑒res and the line was, ?I
should have been more kind. It is
my fate. To find this out, but find
it out too late.?
Turner says: ?It really made me
think and start with a new
direction for my record.
?Clive James is not the only
person
who
has
made
that
comment. (American writer) Kurt
Vonnegut also said something
similar. There are a lot of people
who have said it. It tends to be
people who are near the end of
their life. It therefore comes with
a lot of weight and wisdom
attached to it as far as I am
concerned.
?Today it?s so tempting for
everybody to get angry as your
first response. There are times
when we should get angry but I
feel like we?ve forgotten how to
argue properly or at least in a
civil way.
?Dehumanising people
is very dangerous?
?A lot is because of social
media and the problem with
social media is you are not
physically in the same room as a
person you are disagreeing with.?
Turner says he?s the first to
hold his hand up for sometimes
needing to step away from certain
sites and says any advice he gives
is aimed at himself as much as
anyone else.
?I?m pointing the finger at
myself too,? he says.
?I woke up this morning and
was reading some political Twitter
stuff and sort of wish I hadn?t
because it changed my mood.
?But the moment people start
dehumanising their opponents is
an
extremely
dangerous
one.
Nowadays I see people taking
pride in the fact that they can?t
understand their opponent.
?I think that is a disaster. You
can?t persuade somebody if you
can?t understand them, and if you
are not interested in persuading
them then what are you interested
in? That?s when you start heading
towards political violence. I hope
and like to think it?s something
that we are all opposed to.?
It?s a sunny afternoon in Venice,
California, when we meet just as
Turner is preparing to go out on
the road. We meet at his Airbnb
apartment just as he?s checking
out. The tour itinerary is being
pored over before Turner has a
phone interview to do.
Making Be More Kind, Turner?s
seventh studio album, was a
completely different process for
him in many ways.
As well as being a quick album
to make, Turner says the subject
matter of his songs entered new
territory for him. It?s a really

I wouldn?t call this
a political record.
To be political you

sure of yourself
different feeling for me as an
individual as well as a writer,? he
says.
?On other records I?ve made
I?m figuring out my personal life.
Now I have a partner (Turner is
dating actress Jessica Guise) who
I am very happy with.
?When the world starts falling
apart I am not going to start
reaching for an AK-47, I am
going to try and figure out where
my missus is. That?s what the
track 21st Century Survival Blues
is about.?
The song was inspired by a
plane journey when Turner got
talking to a businessman, who
told him how he had spent a lot
of his money on a warehouse full
of guns.
?He was telling me about how
he had this stockpile of weapons
and dried food ready for the end
of the world,? recalls Turner.
?He said, ?When the ship goes
down you can?t eat gold?. It was a
striking
conversation.
He?s
planning on robbing people for
food.
I
don?t
think
that
survivalists have a point and I
don?t think we are about to reach
a state of society collapsing
anytime soon but it got me
thinking
about
what
was
important
to
me
when
the
sureties that we depend on start
falling apart.?
Turner says he?d originally
planned to make a soul record
and had been toying with lots of
ideas but hit a brick wall. Then
touring the States with his band
the Sleeping Souls he found new
inspiration.
?Until then I?d had a little
writer?s blocks,? he says.
?Trump voters came
to my shows?
?I
was
trying
different
techniques. I was trying to write
a white soul record, which I will
release at some point and am
really happy about, but I?d been
touring in the States at the peak
of
the
Trump
vs
Clinton
electioneering. It was a mad
time to be in the country.
?There?s a song on the new
record Make America Great
Again (after Trump?s famous
campaign slogan), which I am
going to be spending a lot of
my life explaining.
?It?s clear from the song that
I am actually a gigantic fan of
the country. I love America, I
love American people and I
love American culture. What I
find really depressing is that this
Make
America
Great
Again
movement has completely got the
wrong end of the stick about
what?s great about America.
?I could write out an extremely
long list of what is great about
America; these people just picked
one or two bits that are actually
quite s**t.
?Friends asked whether I would
just play shows to liberal people
on the coasts, but I actually take
pride in the fact that we do play
the heartlands and that people
who voted for Trump have come
to my shows. I?ve heard from
them. I want to take pride in
that, partly because it means I
am not narrowing my appeal and
partly because there is also an
opening and an opportunity to
start a civil conversation.

lyrics in the song, it says ?Let?s

faltering. The song is me trying
to have a quiet word with
people who I love and say,
?Maybe don?t elect him again?.?
It?s not just the US that
Turner is talking about on Be
More Kind, though he?s been
hesitant
about
calling
this
album a political record.
He says: ?The record is about
England as well, very much so.
?I have a problem with it
being a political record, because
it?s not a Rage Against The
Machine album. The reason it?s
not
a
Rage
Against
The
Machine record is that to write
a
political
album
that
is
strident in that way, you have
to
be
incredibly
sure
of
yourself. I feel like that is quite
a youthful attribute.?
A few years ago Turner
revealed he was getting close to
?100 death threats and hate
mail a day? over a two-week
period. This was after he found
himself at the centre of a storm
over his politics when it was
claimed
he
was
right-wing
although
he
responded
by
stating: ?I?m a classical liberal.?
Today he says: ?There has
been this huge rise in tension
and division and not talking to
each other and I sit in the
middle of it in a way. I am
really unclear about what is
happening and what should
happen. I?ve got no f****** idea,
and indeed to quote myself,
?Stop f****** asking musicians
for their opinion on it?.
?I got out of my
comfort zone?
?But I?m now more careful
with how I phrase what I say.
I?ve got better as I?ve got older.
If you want to be understood
clearly you have to speak
clearly.?
The first single from the new
album is 1933 ? a song which
Turner calls his ?rant? and is
inspired by articles he saw, that
suggested the alt-right was
punk rock.
He says: ?One of the things
that it?s about is the idea that
any movement that promises
national renewal needs to get
asked
some
seriously
hard
questions very quickly.
?I like to think, as a society,
we have inoculated ourselves
against that kind of bulls***.
Apparently not.
?There is an adolescent thing
of wanting to be transgressive.
The problem is if you establish
a culture where things like
racism and homophobia are
genuinely off limits, which is
great and how it should be,
then if kids want to be
transgressive
they
start
exploring those ideas.
?I think that is where a lot of
the alt-right comes from, but
that makes me so angry.?
Be More Kind is a confident
record
by
Turner.
It
was
recorded as a live album and at
impressive speed. It also sees
Turner experimenting. Blackout

have done in this time and
place? And the answer is yes.?
There have also been a few
changes with Turner?s outlook
on life, which he attributes to
dealing with his mental health
issues,
and
he?s
recently
worked closely with the charity
CALM,
Campaign
Against
Living Miserably.
He says: ?I?ve spent so long
walking away from issues and
now I can talk about it more
openly. My girlfriend and I
had some bumpy moments in
our relationship and I had
some growing up to do to
make it work.
?I went and had some
cognitive behavioural therapy
for various addiction issues
and it was life-changing.
?That?s where my song Little
Changes on the album comes
from ? it?s about the small
decisions you make in life.
?Now I still drink but I?ve
quit smoking and all that sort
I?ve had therapy for various addiction
issues and it was life-changing
of business.? Turner says what
he?s most proud of in his
career is ?the simple fact of
me having survived this long?.
He laughs: ?It actually wins
quite a few arguments. It?s like,
cool, I remember the people
who were flavour of the month
when I was on my second
record and no one else does.
?I don?t mean to sound
bitchy in saying that, but I am
still doing this.
?This album has taken me
out of my comfort zone ? I?ve
ploughed a certain furrow,
somewhere between indie rock
and punk rock and country
and folk.
?I?ve never thought that I?m
reinventing
the
wheel
but
nevertheless after six records
in the same sort of vein, I
thought it was time to bring in
some other ideas.
?And I?m very pleased with
the outcome.?

Q
&
A
DMA?S
?Brits have taken us
under their wing?
LIAM GALLAGHER is one of many
new fans that Aussie band DMA?S
have picked up as they release
second album For Now. The former
Oasis singer tweeted that the trio?s
record was ?biblical?.
Here the band?s Tommy O?Dell
and Johnny Took tell MEGAN
THOMPSON about Liam?s support,
and why they?re always learning.
Why For Now?
Tommy: We thought it was a cool album name and
a great way to start the album. It was the first song
that Johnny and I wrote together too.
What does your UK fanbase mean to you?
Johnny: They?ve taken us under their wing. A
couple of years ago when we played T In The Park
when it was p***ing down and we we?re like, ?Great,
nobody?s gonna turn up,? when we got on stage
everyone had come out in their raincoats and it was
one of our biggest crowds ever.
That was really humbling and inspiring and made
us want to write more records.
Tell us about the track Dawning.
Johnny: It?s a feelgood track and not too far from
what we have done before but it had a little more
warmth and a step up in the production.
What?s the song Emily Whyte about?
Johnny: There?s a pub in Sydney where we live
and Emily Whyte is a mate of ours who works behind
the bar. We ended up building a studio above the
pub so that?s where a lot of the guitars, creative stuff
and bones of the songs were worked on.
You?ve said you are still trying to work out what
band you want to be. How come?
Tommy: We are continually working on our sound
and trying new things. On this record we tried not to
over-saturate the tunes with guitars and spent more
time on the rhythmic structures and vocals.
How did Kim Moyes as producer help with the
sound of the album?
Tommy: We had better equipment and I got to
work with a producer for the first time. It was nice to
have someone saying when things needed work.
What?s it like having Liam Gallagher support you?
Tommy: It?s cool. We grew up listening to Oasis and
we?re playing with him at Finsbury Park this summer.
Johnny: Liam came to one of our gigs in London
last summer and he?s a really good bloke. We met his
son Gene too, who?s a champion.
What else are DMA?s up to in 2018?
Johnny: We?re going to do the UK tour, then home
for our Australian tour, which is really exciting as we
actually don?t play in Australia that much. We really
want to nurture young songwriters and so we might
start a record label as well.

NEW RELEASES
VAN MORRISON & JOEY
DEFRANCESCO
You?re Driving Me Crazy
THIS is Van Morrison?s 39th studio album
and incredibly his third release in just the
12 months.
A follow-up to Versatile, the charttopping jazz album from 2017, it sees Van
team up with trumpet and Hammond
organ virtuoso Joey DeFrancesco and his
band ? including Dan Wilson on guitar,
and Troy Roberts on tenor sax.
It swings along and contains reworkings
of jazz standards such as Miss Otis
Regrets, Everyday I Have The Blues and reimaginings of Van favourites
such as The Way Young
Lovers Do and a very upbeat
Have I Told You Lately?

ELVIS PRESLEY
JOSHUA HEDLEY
JOHNNY CASH, Merle Haggard, George
Jones, Waylon Jennings were giants of
country music.
Great survivor Willie Nelson belongs in
that hallowed company and can rightly be
called the ?last man standing?.
At 84, he?s delivered a career highlight
filled with sprightly performances and
laugh-out-loud gallows humour.
Bad Breath, for instance, bemoans
halitosis but finds Nelson deciding he
would ?rather have bad breath than no
breath at all?.
The evergreen vocals, still with faultless
phrasing, are perfect for a
singer growing old with a
broad grin on that lived-in
face.

DARK, rugged, angry, sensitive, loving,
compassionate. All these words apply to
The Man In Black.
Nearly 15 years after his death, poems,
letters and previously unsung lyrics have
been brought to life in song.
Masterminded by son John Carter Cash,
the album is further given a family seal of
approval with an understated yet luminous
performance from Rosanne Cash on The
Walking Wounded.
Most poignant is the late Chris Cornell?s
delivery of You Never Knew My Mind, a
telling reflecting on the conflicts inside
Cash?s mind.
Powerful stuff but just
imagine the great man singing these songs himself.

SINCE Elvis left the building tragically
young, lurid tales of junk food, prescription drugs and wild behaviour have
dogged his legacy.
A new HBO documentary focuses on a
musician with a golden voice, who transformed popular culture.
This superbly curated collection dives
into deep cuts from his recording career
to reveal Elvis?s mastery of his craft as well
as his impeccable taste in music.
Hear his tender, understated rendition
of Bob Dylan?s little known Tomorrow Is A
Long Time or his smouldering version of
Mona Lisa and you?ll get the
picture.
The King is back on his
throne.

SC
HOT on the heels of impressive Margo
Price comes another country singer on
Jack White?s burgeoning Third Man
Records.
Hedley is an altogether smoother
operator, drawing on the ?countrypolitan?
sound of Glen Campbell for an accomplished debut.
Crucially, he?s delivers great weepies in
Don?t Waste Your Tears and the closer
When You Wish Upon A Star, continuing
Nashville?s grand tradition.
It?s also good to see him sporting an
embroidered ?Nudie suit? on the cover,
famously favoured by Hank
Williams and Gram Parsons.
So please welcome the
authentic Mr. Jukebox.

Flynn on the brink of stardom.
It is set on Jersey amid a series of
grisly murders.
Moll (Buckley) is far too old to be

childhood trauma, she is suffocated
and controlled by her overbearing
and calculating mother (a chilling
Geraldine James).
She rebels by hooking up with
Pascal (Flynn), a mysterious loner

soon in the frame for the murders.
Despite her doubts, Moll stands

whether she even cares. For a
debut, Michael Pearce gives us a
terrifyingly accomplished thriller,
reminding me of an early Ben

He allows his actors space to
breathe ? and they certainly do.
Both leads are absolutely brilliant,
in particular the expressive
performance from Buckley.
If the planet-destroying Josh

THE MAN I THINK I
KNOW
Mike Gayle, �.99
DANNY and James were
destined for great things when
they left school ? but then life
got in the way.
While one of them experienced a painful personal loss,
the other suffered a life-changing
brain injury.
When
Danny
becomes
James?s carer, they develop
an empowering and lifeaffirming
friendship
that
changes them for ever.
Although they both have
incredible obstacles to overcome, the pair do it together.
This is my favourite book of the year.
I read it in one
sitting and did not
want it to end.
Simply stunning.

LITTLE BIG MAN
Katy Regan, �.99
TEN-year-old Zac is wise
beyond his years and knows he
has got to look out for his mum.
His dad apparently did a
runner before he was born. But
when Zac?s mum reveals his
father is the only man she has
ever loved, the youngster turns
super sleuth with his friend.
If his mum and dad could
meet, surely they would fall in
love all over again and be a
proper family?
It?s one of the most emotive
tales I?ve ever read.
Zac is a perfect protagonist and you
will be by his side all
the way, hoping
against hope that it
all turns out OK.

JAYME BRYLA
I CAN?T remember a film as
big as this. I don?t mean in
stature or anticipation ? The
Force Awakens takes some
beating ? but I mean in
sheer, unadulterated scale.
The result of the Marvel Comics
Universe?s ten years? hard work is in
this two-parted behemoth.
Its cast list reads like a who?s who
of . . . well, Marvel movies over the
past ten years actually.
Prior to its release, the press conferences looked like the entire west
stand at Old Trafford and the poster
credits alone generated more think
pieces than the whole of Justice
League put together.
There are, at the last count, 28
Avengers ? all vying for a piece of
the action. Apart from Hawkeye and
Ant-Man, who are faffing around
somewhere else apparently.
We smell blood. What we don?t
know at this stage is how much
and who it belongs to.
We know this part of Infinity War
(Part 2 is due out in 2019) is based
two years after the Avengers pretty
much imploded at the end of Captain America: Civil War.
It is based around villain Thanos
(Josh Brolin), the massive fella we

encountered in the first Avengers,
and his hunt for the remaining
Infinity Stones. One of them is in
Vision?s forehead, another in Dr
Strange?s locket, Loki grabbed one
from Asgard and Starlord found
another.
If he finds all six (there are two
others knocking around), his desire
to save the universe from overpopulation by destroying half of its
inhabitants with the click of a
finger could come very true indeed.
Aside from all that, what I was
most intrigued about was the ability
of directors Joe and Anthony Russo
to fit nearly 30 A-list stars into an
extremely ambitious and complex
story that needs to somehow,
reshape the Marvel Universe for the
next ten years.
It?s already likely to break boxoffice records, but will it do it in
style or with sheer brute force?
The answer is style, deft, heart
and emotional wallop. Infinity War
is the accumulation of a decadelong build-up that satisfies on
almost every level. If you thought
Black Panther was as good as it
got . . . Bitch, please.
This is a spoiler-free review,
which means I?ll have to keep it
light on plot. We begin about an
hour after Thor: Ragnarok?s midcredit scene ends and it?s largely
the story we expected ? the joining
of the Avengers with the Guardians
(and a few more for good measure)
and their quest to thwart Thanos?s
genocidal plan.
This isn?t one for Marvel newbies
? if you don?t know your Groot
from your Loki, I?d go back about
18 films and do some homework.
The beauty of this film is the
delight we take in witnessing our
heroes interacting for the first time.
Seeing Dr Strange meet Iron Man
and Thor meet the Guardians is
extremely pleasing.
The posturing and willy-waving
runs throughout the film and never
tires ? Starlord?s continually crushed
ego is Chris Pratt at his best.
There is so much to get through,
so many people to gather together,
it?s no wonder this is just over two
and a half hours long.
But the Russo brothers? timing is
impeccable. Nothing hangs around
longer than it needs to.
Josh Brolin plays Thanos with
real pathos. There?s little gleeful
murder from him, and while you
never quite reach sympathy, as he
goes about his travels there?s definitely a sense of compassion.
There are two glaring plot points
which are necessary to drive the
story forward but blindingly out of
character for those involved.
But as I left, they melted away ?
such was the climax.
The last ten minutes will (and I
apologise
for
sounding
like
a
16-year-old
Instagram
influencer),
have you feeling ALL the feels.
We end up on Wakanda in a
battle reminiscent of Helm?s Deep or
the Battle Of The Bastards, but with
the stakes dialled up to 11.
Yes, we say goodbye to some old
friends, yes, it?s lip-wobbling, yes, it?s
awesome, yes, we?re left wanting
more and yes, the post-credit scene
finishes you off completely.
This is an incredible film. It
achieves what many thought impossible with dexterity and style.
There were at least four moments
and surprises when the entire 1,000seater cinema audibly gasped and
punched the air.
If
you
thought
Marvel
was
flagging after ten years of relentless
action, Infinity War Part 1 suggests
they haven?t even got started.
Annalee Newitz, �99
A FUTURE world of designer
drugs, intelligent robots and
slavery is the backdrop to the
most disturbing love story
imaginable.
Newitz takes her place alongside William Gibson and Charles
Stross in painting a grim situation for our descendants.
Big Pharma is the villain as a
designer drug turns out to have
terrible side-effects and the
rogue chemist who realises
what has happened goes on the
run from a killer robot.
The clever way Newitz looks
at self-determination will even have
you questioning
your own level of
autonomy.
Topnotch sci-fi.

OK, the chances of death are

Rogue Aces is a side-scrolling

Slick . . . Shell?s �8bn profit
OIL GOOD..
3YR HIGH
AT SHELL
ROYAL DUTCH SHELL has
posted its highest quarterly profit for at least
three years thanks to
resurgent oil prices.
The firm reported a 42
per cent rise to �8billion
for the first three months
of the year.
Oil briefly reached above
$75 a barrel this week and
there are predictions it
could climb to $100 amid
global tensions.
The group?s results are
also being buoyed by
higher production and
years of cost cutting.
Chief executive Ben van
Beurden said: ?Shell?s
strong earnings this quarter were underpinned by
higher oil and gas prices,
the continued growth of
our integrated gas business, and improved profitability in our upstream
business.?
Meanwhile, rival BP has
named energy industry
veteran Helge Lund as its
next chairman, succeeding Carl-Henric Svanberg.
Norwegian Mr Lund, 55,
previously headed BG
Group and helped negotiate its �billion sale to
Royal Dutch Shell in
2015. He also headed
STATOIL.
BP confirmed he will
have a base in London.
SSE DEAL
WARNING
THE proposed merger
between energy giants
NPOWER and SSE could
reduce competition and
lead to higher prices,
according to Britain?s
competition watchdog.
The COMPETITION and
MARKETS AUTHORITY said
it would refer the deal for
a full investigation unless
the two Big Six providers
can address its concerns
by May 3.
The CMA?s Rachel
Merelie said: ?Competition
between energy companies
gives them a reason to
keep prices down. We
found the proposed merger
could reduce this and so
lead to higher prices for
some customers.?
CHILL FOR
BUILDER
HOUSEBUILDER Taylor
Wimpey has blamed the
March cold snap for a
slight slowdown in sales.
The company released a
trading update that showed
its average number of sales
per outlet dropped to 0.85
per week, compared to
0.93 a year previously.
But it remains on track
to meet expectations for
the full year, with demand
holding up. It is likely to
complete more new homes
in the second half of the
year than in previous years.
The builder?s order book
stands at around
�16billion, compared to
�21billion in the same
period of 2017. This
represents 9,050 homes.

A CARING CULTURE
PRESENT
BUT NOT
CORRECT
MORE than one in three staff
feels pressured to work
overtime ? and worries they
will be judged negatively by
bosses and colleagues if
they leave work on time.
That is the grim finding in a
new poll by employment
agency TotalJobs, which
found staff in Birmingham
most likely to fall victim to
so-called ?presenteeism?.
Younger workers are most
vulnerable to the
phenomenon, with more
than half of 18 to 34-yearolds worrying their boss or
colleagues might think they
aren?t working hard enough
if they leave work promptly.
Martin Talbot, of TotalJobs,
says: ?Presenteeism is now
an ingrained part of
company culture but working
longer hours doesn?t
necessarily lead to greater
output.
?A third of employers
believe shorter working
hours actually improve
productivity.
?This, alongside the
impact that poor work-life
balance has upon morale
and employee retention
explains why employers are
looking to take steps to
ensure that their staff go
home on time.?

Chris Dyer gives three steps for
firms to ensure staff are happy.

NURSING IS REWARDING FOR EVERYONE
A care wage
WANT to really make
a difference?
Bupa has opened four new
care homes this year ? in
Scunthorpe, Leeds, Edgbaston,
West Mids, and Haywards
Heath, West Sussex ? creating job opportunities.
The firm has 160 nursing
roles
nationwide,

new
homes in counties including
Hertfordshire, Surrey, Kent,
Berkshire and Herefordshire.

AN ASK
MASTER
IF you have aced a job
interview and been offered the
role, it makes sense to ask your
new employer the right
questions to ensure it really is
the great fit you think.
Careers coach and author
John Lees suggests asking the
following questions before you
seal the deal . . .
How long was the last
person in the job? Finding
out how frequently people
leave an organisation can be a
good insight into its culture.
How will the job change?
This checks learning
opportunities and shows your
motivation to gain new skills.
What will I be doing most
of the time? Job
descriptions tend to highlight
the most appealing or
glamorous parts of the job, so
try to see the full picture. A lack
of variety can prompt itchy feet.
Can we talk about the
offer? Focus on the
ingredients that matter most to
you ? flexible working may be
more important than money,
for example, or vice versa.
I?m glad you?ve chosen
me. Can I ask why? This
isn?t fishing for compliments ?
knowing what they see in you
will help you understand what it
wants you to deliver.

TODAY?S RUNNERS, RIDERS, FORM AND TIP-TOP TIPS
TEMPLEGATE?S TV TIPS
By STEVE JONES
IT all Adds up in the
Bet365
Mile
at
Sandown.
ADDEYBB could not have
been more impressive in
the Lincoln at Doncaster.
They way he put the race
to bed suggested he?s up to
this higher class.
Go out on your Shield in
the Esher Cup.
KINGS SHIELD is unbeaten in
two starts and has looked better
than a handicapper.
He had several subsequent
winners behind when making a
successful debut at Newcastle
in November and was well on
top at the line when winning at
Kempton three weeks ago.
He sets a lofty standard.
Dream Warrior disappointed
on the all-weather at Lingfield.
He only scrambled home in an
uncompetitive French maiden
last year and has a bit to prove.
1.50
IT?S DEYTIME
2.25
There?s a Fab bet for the
Bet365 Gordon Richards
Stakes. FABRICATE got better
and better as last season went
on. If his Kempton win on his
return to action is anything to
go by he?s still improving.
That race-fitness tips the balance in his favour.
Crystal Ocean will end up
being the best of these but I
can?t get excited about backing
him first time out with most of
Sir Michael Stoute?s team
seemingly needing a run.
He was runner-up in last season?s St Leger so the trip is
likely to be on the short side.
Morando is interesting on his
first run for Andrew Balding
given his excellent record when
fresh.
Almodovar is tempting at the
prices. He missed last season
but is a player on his best 2016
form and has won first time.
A few stars have been
born in the Classic Trial
and another will rise this year.
SEVENNA STAR might be
flattered by his 14-length romp
at Windsor a couple of weeks
ago but it was still the performance of a smart prospect.
His form last year was decent
and he was always likely to
improve this season.
Chilean was sixth to Saxon
Warrior in the Racing Post
Trophy before landing a French
3.00
Group 3. He might need deep
ground. I can?t imagine Hunting
Horn is too far up Aidan
O?Brien?s Derby pecking order.
Lincoln hero ADDEYBB
should take the jump up
to Group 2 level in his stride.
William Haggas? ace was
awesome at Doncaster and his
fitness edge over Here Comes
When gives him a great chance.
Here Comes When caused a
shock when beating Ribchester
in the Sussex Stakes. That came
on dreadful ground so it would
suit if rain arrived.
He won first time out last
season. Stormy Antarctic won
in France last time and must be
in with a shout.

RONNIE O?SULLIVAN is the
star of snooker?s ?class of

legend Stephen Hendry.
The Rocket takes on Ali
Carter in Sheffield at the
Betfred World Championship today as he bids for
a sixth world title.
Three former winners
are left in the draw and,
amazingly, they all turned
pro the same summer 26
years ago.
Record seven-time world
champ Hendry, 49, feels
O?Sullivan has a box-office
edge over John Higgins
and Mark Williams.
Hendry said: ?Ronnie
stands out. He brings flair
and plays the game different to anyone else.
?Ronnie has that extra
sparkle. He will always be
one of, if not THE biggest
name in the game.?
JUDD TRUMP survived a
big scare against former
Asda delivery driver Chris

The Formula One world champion, 33,
is an avid Gunners fan.
Wenger will leave the club at the end
of the season, while Hamilton?s future is
also in the balance after failing to sign
a new deal with Mercedes.
He said: ?I have always had great
admiration for Arsene.
?For anyone to have commitment to a

shown through all the ups and downs,

?Whilst the team has not always been
the most successful, I really hope he
feels great about his time.
?I?ve had the privilege of meeting him
a couple of times. He asked me to go
and train with the team, which I have
not managed to do yet.
?But he was always really welcoming
and it was cool to meet my team?s boss.
?I?ve supported Arsenal since I was
five. I want to wish him all the best. I
think his future is as bright as he
wants it to be so I hope he takes the

Hamilton?s Mercedes boss Toto Wolff
was keen to get a new contract with
him signed before the first race of the
season in Australia.
But they have not yet reached an
agreement on the finer points of the
deal, worth up to �million a year.
Yet the Brit has again stated it is
only a matter of time before he
commits to the Silver Arrows.
He added: ?I have every plan to be
with the team for the future.
?I?ve made it very clear and they
have made it very clear that they want
to continue, so it?s quite an easy thing.?

BOXING WILDER TAUNT SAVED MY LIFE
Ant mulls
Wild offer
By DECLAN TAYLOR
ANTHONY JOSHUA has
told Deontay Wilder: Show
me the money!
The
American
WBC
heavyweight
champion
sent the Brit a take-it-orleave-it $50million offer
(around �m) to fight him
before the end of the year.
Wilder gave WBA and
IBF king Joshua 24 hours
to accept the deal.
But
promoter
Eddie
Hearn said: ?It?s very kind
of him but we haven?t had
a proper offer yet, only a
piece of paper from a guy
from Alabama.
?I get these emails all
the time but usually from
people in Nigeria asking
me to send money first.
?Let?s see the contract
and proof of funds before
we get carried away.
?If it?s real, we have to
take it seriously but if
they expect us to make a
quick decision then they
are widely mistaken.
?This initial offer is fun
and games but it is a
great PR move.?

?Mike Tyson is a legendary

But he revealed that being written

to get back in shape and return to
the ring.
Fury, 29, makes his long-awaited
comeback after more than 2 years
out
when
he
fights
at
the
Manchester Arena on June 9.
The former world heavyweight
champion ballooned to above 25st
during his time away from the
sport ? and says at one point he
considered killing himself.
Fury said: ?I was walking along
the canal with my dog at the time
and I thought, ?I?m a fat pig?.
?I felt like jumping in the water
and drowning.
?I didn?t want to fight. A man

fighting with his peers.
?There is one point when a man
just doesn?t want to fight any more
and thinks, ?I?ve had enough, you
win?. That?s how I felt.?
But Fury insists those thoughts
were wiped from his mind when he
saw the comments made by WBC
heavyweight champ Wilder, which
inspired him to turn his life around.
He said: ?It was Deontay Wilder
who spurred me on and gave me
the ambition to return because he
said I couldn?t do it. He said, ?Tyson
Fury is done?.
?I was looking at my phone and
saw the comments from Wilder and

?There is me, Wilder, Anthony
Joshua and some other guys.
?To speak about someone that
you can never fight from a

manner is distasteful.?
Fury
is
no
stranger
to
controversy, having had his
boxing licence suspended amid
anti-doping and medical issues.
But he is now focusing on
doing his family proud during
the next stage of his boxing
career.
He
said:
?I?ve
proved my worth
and I?m coming
back. I proved
out with me to the ring.
?Before, they were too
young, now my son is
at that age and he can
see his dad fighting.
?I want to carry on
until I?m 40. My son
is going to walk me
out to the ring.
?It?s a family thing.
We all go together and
it means everything. If
I?m happy, my family
is. If I?m sad, we cry
together. It?s all
about unity.?

first-choice centre-forward.
He will know by now that
he misjudged the mood of the
country when he appealed to
the Premier League to take
Christian Eriksen?s second
goal at Stoke from his
team-mate.
It backfired a bit, with the
weight of public opinion
turning
against
the
Tottenham forward when the
dubious goals committee were
forced to review it.
Kane relies on big goal
bonuses to make up the money
on his contract and Spurs
should have privately honoured
the agreement if he came close
to meeting his targets.
That would have suited
everyone and spared Kane
from
the
social-media
of entitlement is not a good
look for one of English
football?s leading players.
Last
weekend,
after
a
dopey
Wembley
intern
mocked Kane?s performance
in the FA Cup semi-final
against Manchester United,
the FA were forced to make
a grovelling apology.
The following night, at the
PFA awards, chairman Ben
Purkiss put his foot in it
with a gag about Kane?s
ghost goal against Stoke
which led to another apology.
Purkiss made reference to
Kane?s appeal in his speech
? a sort of tap-in that the
striker would be happy to
gobble up if it was a chance
in the six-yard box.
The crime ? to say ?Harry
is so prolific that he can
score without touching the
ball? ? earned a few guffaws
of Kane and his family,
could be that offended.
Yet, in the modern world,
a League Two defender is
not allowed to be playful or
mischievous or to have a
personality.
Sure, it was not the greatest joke of all time and it
was not especially funny. But
the poor lad probably wanted
to steer away from a stuffy
or bland or serious speech.
It has landed him a load
of bother, far more aggravation than he could have
expected for making such an
inoffensive remark.
Purkiss has already been
in touch with Kane, forced
to
smooth
things
over
because his speech did not
meet universal approval.
In a position of stature ?
and being PFA chairman
certainly
falls
into
that
back end of his career.
Kane has done so well to
cultivate his image over the
past few years, with a surge
in popularity because he has
always
been
so
humble
about his achievements.
The ?three-season wonder?
tweet last summer was a
genuine send-up after he
finished the season with the
Golden Boot for the second
successive year.
He will miss out this time,
with Liverpool striker and
newly crowned PFA Player of
the Year Mo Salah?s 31
Premier League goals this
season
putting
him
five
ahead of the Tottenham man.
Despite a couple of interruptions through injury, Kane
has had another exceptional
season in a Spurs shirt.
There is no reason to
spoil it.
GUNNERS SHAME Cole is hot
THE great shame about Arsenal?s
recruitment process for the new
manager is that Eddie Howe and
Sean Dyche will both be overlooked.
In a world where image is everything, neither of them are guilty of
puffing themselves up or putting
themselves forward publicly for the
biggest jobs in the game.
They are two aspirational English
coaches, maximising resources at
small, provincial clubs. And yet they
do not stand a chance of getting a
shot at the Gunners job.
Howe has been mentored by
Arsene Wenger on the quiet over
the past couple of years and would
have been the outgoing Arsenal
manager?s choice to succeed him.
Instead, the clamour for a big
name or a coach with European
experience and pedigree means
both Howe (right) and Dyche are
out of the picture.
PEP GUARDIOLA is the obvious choice to
win LMA manager of the year ? but he has
unexpected competition from League Two.
Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman, who
has guided the club to promotion on the
joint-lowest budget in the division along with
Morecambe, has been steadily picking up
votes from members.
Although Manchester City chief Guardiola
is the go-to man for aspiring managers,
Coleman?s remarkable work has not gone
unnoticed by the LMA?s traditionalists.
Rover ?n
clout for
Mogga
BLACKBURN ROVERS?
revival owes much to
the hard work and
dedication of manager
Tony Mowbray.
He has been through
some tough times in his
coaching
career
but
winning promotion to the
Championship with Rovers
at the first time of asking
? after Tuesday?s victory
over Doncaster ? is a
step in the right direction.
Mogga, 54, a man of
honour and integrity, has
always
stuck
to
his
principles.
When his playing career
was coming to an end, he
used to take the train
from his home in Ipswich
to watch Arsenal under
the lights at Highbury.
He picked up some good
habits from those early
Arsene Wenger sides,
with the combination of their
pace,
movement and tenacity making a big
impression
on
Mowbray.
The former Ipswich
and
Middlesbrough
defender, who took over at
Ewood Park in February
2017, is very much his own
man now.
Gareth?s
Cheeky
selection
THE unfortunate injury to
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
has moved Ruben LoftusCheek into pole position
to grab one of the last
spots in England?s World
Cup squad.
Gareth
Southgate
is
tempted to give the young
midfielder, who has only
just returned to Crystal
Palace?s side, a World Cup
wildcard when he names
his 23 players next month.
The
Ox?s
long-term
injury, sustained during
Liverpool?s thumping 5-2
win over Roma in the
Champions League semifinal, means England are
crying out for creativity.
And that means LoftusCheek, who did so well in
the
November
friendly
with Germany at Wembley,
should get the nod.
Joe Hart, in the middle
of another dreadful run of
form in goal for West
Ham, has been told to
prepare to be third-choice
keeper at the tournament
in Russia.
Despite
his
patchy
performances, Southgate
likes
his
experience
around the camp.
And he still wants him
there to help bring on the
younger rookies, Everton?s
Jordan
Pickford
and
Stoke?s Jack Butland.

BILLIONAIRE SHAHID USED TO
WASH DISHES FOR 85p AN HOUR
By JORDAN DAVIES
SHAHID KHAN was
earning 85p an hour
washing plates as a
teenager.
Now the Fulham owner is
ready to dish out �ILLION to
buy the home of English football.
Khan?s is a life story beyond belief
? but one that could drastically
change the domestic game.
The FA will hopefully use some of
the
cash
to
kickstart
major
developments in grassroots football ?
to help produce Harry Kanes on a
more regular basis.
If that bears fruit, it could just be
the catalyst England?s national side
needs in its bid to climb back up the
Fifa rankings and back into the
hearts of the fans.
And all from a self-made billionaire
from Pakistan ? a country whose own
football side sits 105 places below
Gareth Southgate?s hopefuls in 118th.
Khan, 67, is no stranger to English
football ? he splashed out a rumoured
�0-200m four years ago to buy
Fulham from Mohamed Al-Fayed.
And the West London club is now
knocking on the door of a Premier
League return.
He also owns American football
giants the Jacksonville Jaguars, who
have played one match a year at
Wembley since 2013.
And that seed appears to have
grown into an obsession.
Khan, who once made ends meet
scrubbing plates and cutlery, said:
?The first stadium I went to in Britain
was Wembley.
?Obviously I?ve admired it, love it
and I think to assure, from my view,
future scheduled games for Jaguars
and other NFL teams, it makes sense.?
But the tycoon moved to reassure
Three Lions fans that football will
remain the stadium?s prime use.
He added: ?Obviously, English football is sacred and that?s the priority.
?We would have NFL after that and
then look at other avenues to use the
stadium.
?I think it can be utilised more.
There?s definitely opportunity for more
utilisation.
?I mean, if you go back, Wembley
was a private stadium and they had a
lot of different events at that point to
serve
the
communities,
economic
growth, etc.?
Born in Lahore in 1950, Khan would
spend his childhood days doing what
he
would
soon
turn
into
an
art form ? making money.
From building and selling radios to
charging his pals to rent out his
comic books. That instinct to turn a
profit came from his salesman father
Rafiq ? who grew up in a family of
FIFTY and would indulge his son?s
love of cricket by entering the old
Lahore Stadium after tea to avoid a fee.
Khan moved to the States aged 16
with just �0 in his pocket and
studied mechanical engineering at the
University of Illinois.
Crashing at a YMCA for �40 a
night, he scrubbed plates and cutlery
in his first paid job.
That would all change.
The busboy-to-billionaire fairytale
began with a job at car-parts
company Flex-N-Gate in 1971.
Seven years on, he left to start his
own company Bumper Works, returning to buy Flex-N-Gate for �0,000.
He transformed the company into a
worldwide hit, cornering the lucrative
Toyota
market
and
expanding
throughout the 1990s and 2000s.
Khan got US citizenship in 1991
and, by 2010, Flex-N-Gate had 12,450
employees and had 48 manufacturing
plants, bringing in around �5bn in
revenue.
He has been valued by Forbes at
�2bn ? No 158 on the global rich list.
Khan treated himself accordingly,
splashing out on a � Chicago
penthouse with a Pompeii-inspired
bathroom, a superyacht worth a
whopping �0m, and a wacky brass
piano.
As a sports fan, Khan?s dream of
owning an NFL franchise was formed
all those years ago when he used to
watch games on a clapped-out TV
between dishwashing shifts.
His first attempt at buying into the
NFL was in 2010 but a 60-per-cent
bid for St Louis Rams was snubbed.
A year later, Khan turned to
Jacksonville ? where his company had
a shipping port ? and got his hands
on the Jaguars for a cool �3m.
Khan, who shares his sporting
passion with his wife Ann and two
children Tony and Shanna, is no
ordinary NFL boss ? breaking the
mould for all the right reasons.
From speaking out against recent
race issues to often joining his players
on the field in a show of solidarity, as
well as promoting NFL in the UK.
So
the
man
with
the
iconic
moustache is within touching distance
of owning football?s most iconic
stadium.
And he could be the man to change
English football for ever.

BOOSTS GRASSROOTS

that, for once at the FA, heartbeat of football.

Premier
League
did not leak.

Khan playing the piano inside his

The proposed sale of the
national stadium in a stunning
deal worth up to �ILLION.
Freeing
up
�0million
to
spend on grassroots facilities,
keeping the Wembley name and
also allowing England fans up
and down the country to see the
Three Lions ?on the road? again.
But, in truth, given everything
we know about the Wembley
regime of Martin Glenn (below),
maybe we should have seen it
coming. The FA chief executive
has never hidden his view that
the FA has three main tasks.
First, of course, is a
successful England team.
That may not have
arrived
yet
but
the
World Cup wins by the
Under-17 and U20s last
year were signposts to
a
brighter,
better
future.
Second

and No 3 is to improve
grassroots facilities.

may

boardrooms.
Yet
it
offended
him to hear the FA
accused of only
offering
the
crumbs from the
Blazer Brigade?s
table in a game
awash
with
money.
Glenn has
made clear
his priority

those
parts
of
FANS? FURY:

FA are

?mare
millionaires. But the kids, up and
down the land, who are crying
out for better facilities like 4G
pitches that could give them a
chance of becoming the NEXT
Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling or
Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Fulham owner Shahid Khan is
ready to pay �0m up front.
That money would wipe out all
debts ? the FA owe �0m in
bank payments plus �3m to
public bodies, including Sport
England and the Government.
In exchange, the FA will not be
giving up anything really important. Yes, with Khan?s
Jacksonville Jaguars taking
priority and a Londonbased
NFL
franchise
seeming certain, England
will
no
longer
have
Wembley as their home
for autumn games.
The NFL regular season
lasts from September to
the end of December and
the pitch will take a pounding.
Yet Sven-Goran Eriksson?s side
loved playing at 14 different
venues, including Southampton,
Leicester and Ipswich, between
2001 and 2007. ?Three Lions on
Tour? will engage fans again.
Khan will let Wembley remain
the main home for the majority
of England internationals and the
FA Cup final.
He also has no plans to move
Fulham to Wembley and is
currently engaged in a rebuilding
project at Craven Cottage.
The FA expects that concerns
will be raised.
But there is expectation the
positives will be seen to outweigh
the negatives. Khan could be the
new Wembley owner before the
end of the year.
By PAUL JIGGINS
HEARING the FA could sell Wembley is enough
to turn you white with shock ? just like its
famous horse from the 1923 Cup final.
Many will view it as a horse?s a**e of a decision
and that the foals at the FA have had a ?mare.
That they are selling English football down
the river by flogging the only thing it has of
any prestige ? for a measly �0million.
The FA, full of manure as always, claim the
sale will provide much-needed funds to build
pitches and improve the grassroots of the game.
But if they do act on the hoof and sell the
spiritual home of football, Billie the white horse
will not be the only one with a long face . . .
WEMBLEY
SELL-OFF
WHEN COULD THE
SALE BE DONE?
THE
FA
Board
only
received details of Shahid
Khan?s
offer
yesterday
and the process will take
weeks or maybe months.
In
the
short
term,
nothing will alter.
WILL THINGS
CHANGE SWIFTLY?
THE FA Cup final next
month will still be played
at
Wembley,
as
will
England?s
World
Cup
warm-up
game
with
Nigeria on June 2.
The FA have already
scheduled the November
15 friendly with the USA
there but have yet to
confirm the venue for the
September friendly with
Switzerland or the home
games against Spain and
Croatia
in
the
new
Nations League, which
starts in September.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
WEMBLEY chief Martin
Glenn
believes
the
deal is a game-changer,
releasing funds for grassroots football.
It could bring �0million into the development
of the game at all levels,
allowing better facilities,
more coaches and better
opportunities
for
girls
and women to play.
ARE WE GOING TO GET
MCDONALD?S WEMBLEY?
THE FA have demanded
Khan agrees it remains
known
as
Wembley
Stadium for now.
That suggests naming
rights are not high on
the agenda, although it
keeps alive the possibility
of
?Wembley

sponsored by Panasonic?.
WILL THE FA CUP
FINAL BE MOVED AWAY
FROM WEMBLEY?
ABSOLUTELY not. Khan
is keen to ensure the
marquee events continue
to be staged there.
But it could see the
semi-finals reverting to
neutral grounds, keeping
Wembley for the final.
DOES THIS MEAN AN
NFL TEAM IN LONDON?
IT certainly looks that
59
Q&A
way, especially as the FA
is preparing to send the
England team around the
country for their autumn
games if fixtures clash
with Jacksonville Jaguars
home games.
Khan will presumably
have already consulted
NFL commissioner Roger
Goodell about his plans.
But any relocation of
the franchise would still
need to be approved by
the 32 NFL team owners
and
is
a
big
and
controversial call.
WHAT ABOUT THE NFL
MOVING TO TOTTENHAM?
THE NFL has funded
part of the cost of the
new Spurs stadium at
White Hart Lane.
Tottenham
chairman
Daniel Levy last year
signed a ten-year deal to
play two NFL matches
per season there and
separate NFL-sized dressing rooms are being built
in the East Stand, with
the grass pitch capable of
being rolled out to allow
NFL games on artificial
turf below.
Whether
this
means
more
games
here
in
addition to Jacksonville?s
home matches is less
clear but Levy will have
cast-iron guarantees.
AREN?T CHELSEA
MOVING TO WEMBLEY?
WEMBLEY was the most
likely
option
for
the
Blues as they revamp
Stamford Bridge but that
is not now expected to
start until at least the
2019-20 season.
Chelsea need to find a
home for four seasons
but NFL fixtures from
September to December
would appear to scupper
Wembley as a possibility.
COULD WEMBLEY BE
KNOCKED DOWN?
NO. There will be a castiron deal in place that
Wembley remains a sports
and entertainment venue.
There is also no chance
Brent Council, the Mayor
of
London
or
the
Government
would
approve such a project.
England on
wrong road
THE FA went to a lot
of trouble to build
Wembley.
Years of legal wrangling, the demolition of
the Twin Towers, the
spiralling costs to put
this
�8million
super
stadium in place.
Eleven years on from
the first game, it is up for
sale at �0m.
Wembley is our Maracana, a site that has huge
historical significance and
prestige worldwide.
Soon enough, if the FA
board can be persuaded
that this is a goer, it will
be in the hands of Fulham owner Shahid Khan.
He will dictate when
England can play there,
pushing
the
national
team around the country
to fit in with his own
ambitious plans.
This halfway-house is
an unacceptable compromise being tossed back
and forth between the FA
and Khan.
It is a big call to flog
the national stadium.

Wembley is the home of
English football. For years
the FA traded on all that.
There was something
in it because the walk-up
to Wembley, the buzz of
anticipation and sense
of excitement is the same
as it was when the Twin
Towers were in place.
Unfortunately, this soulless bowl is incapable of
generating an atmosphere
to match.
Nobody ever calls the
new Wembley a cauldron.
The FA?s solution is to
sell it and take England
on the road.
It works for Germany,
Spain and Italy.
England at the Stadium

the Etihad or Old Trafford

wants
�0million to launch a
total makeover of the
Arsenal team next season.
Enrique is the favourite
to succeed Arsene Wenger
when the Frenchman steps
aside this summer after
22 years in charge.
Former Barcelona boss
Enrique plans to rip up
the squad should he come
to a deal with Arsenal and
take over.
Only the forward line
will be left untouched,
with �m record signing
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
and Alexandre Lacazette
safe in their jobs.
The goalkeeping, defence
and midfield will be in for
a major shake-up, with
Roma midfielder Radja
Nainggolan already identified as a leading target.
That is already a hefty
diversion from Wenger?s
style of management.
The Belgian is 29 and
Arsenal?s outgoing boss
prefers younger players
with years ahead of them.
Whoever gets the job of
filling Wenger?s shoes will
have less of a say in
transfers, with power at the
Emirates shifting upstairs.
Former Barca director
of football Raul Sanllehi is
set to become the main
force in spending Arsenal?s
money and has previously
worked with Enrique.
With lots of positions up
for grabs, several big-name
players would be heading
out to offset the new
acquisitions ? but everyone will get their chance
to stay at the club.
Enrique, out of work
since leaving Barca when
his contract expired in
March last year and also
linked to Chelsea, wants
the same �illion-a-year
salary Wenger enjoys.

THERE is unlikely to be a
glorious silver-plated farewell
now.
And no golden Champions League
legacy for Arsene Wenger?s successor, either.
Unless Arsenal pull off one of the
greatest results of Wenger?s 22-year
reign in the second leg of this
Europa
League
semi-final
at
Madrid?s
Wanda
Metropolitano
Stadium next week, the Frenchman
will sign off without a single
European trophy.
After Antoine Griezmann seized
on a pratfalling Arsenal defence to
net a critical late away goal for tenman Atletico Madrid, it all looks
like ending not in tears, but with
shrugged shoulders.
Instead of a Europa League final
in Lyon, Wenger will have to say his
goodbyes in a Premier League dead
rubber at Huddersfield on May 13.
Because this Europa League run is
odds-on to end in failure after last
night?s crushing late drama.
And so Wenger?s replacement ?
with former Barcelona boss Luis
Enrique the front-runner ? will
have to suffer another campaign of
Thursday night football next season.
The vacancy has become a little
less desirable and the task ahead a
little steeper.
Wenger was honest enough to
admit that this story of Arsenal
GO FLO . . .
Thauvin nods

KIDD
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
domination and ultimate disappointment was one we?d all heard before.
He admitted his defensive trio of
Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi
and keeper David Ospina had
brought a sense of anticlimax to
this, his final European night in
charge at the Emirates.
At least for 82 minutes this felt
like a throwback to the epic battles
of Wenger?s glory days.
Like a library hijacked by hardcore ravers, the Emirates started
acting like Anfield ? and Wenger
must have felt himself transported
back a decade or so.
Too often this 60,000-capacity
monument to Wenger has felt like
an art-house Islington cinema, with
patrons strolling in and out for
popcorn and drinks, showing little
passion for the show.
Not last night, though. The early
dismissals of Atletico defender Sime
Vrsaljko ? soon followed by his
manager Diego Simeone ? brought
out the bear-pit in this place.
Wenger?s great teams could be as
brutal as they were beautiful.
Patrick Vieira and the classic back
four would never shrink from a fight.
And while the current lot are not
cut from the same chainmail, they
didn?t shrink from the mental fight.
They failed because they couldn?t
defend a simple long ball, and that?s
because Wenger?s defence has not
been good enough for many years.
Diego Costa is likely to be back
after being left on the bench last
night ? and that means the return
match is likely to fizz and crackle
with menace and spite even more
than this feisty affair.
And Arsenal have a mountain to
scale if they are to win at the new
stadium
where
Atletico
haven?t
conceded a goal since January.
Whatever the outcome, it?s been
weirdly compelling to watch the
Arsenal manager coming to terms
with his departure over the past
seven days. A workaholic dealing
with the loss of love?s labour.
In his programme notes, Wenger
admitted: ?I dedicated my life to this
club. Sometimes certainly in excess,
but that?s how I am and in my next
job I think I?ll be the same again.?
As he said, he?s an addict and
even heartbreaks like last night?s
can?t loosen the game?s grip on him.
He?ll be back in management soon.
On the eve of this semi-final, first
leg, Wenger had bemoaned how his
one Champions League final, the
2006 defeat by Barcelona, had been
turned by a red card for Arsenal?s
keeper, Jens Lehmann.
Soon the boot was on the other
foot for a major European tie.
Vrsaljko is not a name you?d enjoy
writing down once but French ref
Clement Turpin took it twice in the
first ten minutes, for fouls on Jack
Wilshere then Alex Lacazette.
And a couple of minutes later,
Simeone was banished from his
technical area for ranting about a
foul from Hector Bellerin which
Turpin refused to punish with a card.
Lacazette had already crashed a
shot against a post and had a header
brilliantly saved by Jan Oblak. After
Simeone had been frog-marched
from the touchline, Danny Welbeck
and Nacho Monreal went close.
Even as the Emirates grew nervous and frustrated, the unfamiliar
white noise did not abate.
And on 62 minutes, Lacazette got
a serious leap in to head home Jack
Wilshere?s centre.
Yet somehow you always assumed
the cruel outcome was on its way.
Wenger has not been sent packing
for no good reason. Arsenal have
been soft for years.
And when Koscielny, Ospina and
the tumbling Mustafi all failed to
deal with Griezmann, that was
when the Emirates started to feel
like its quiet old self again.

Florian Thauvin headed in Payet?s
15th-minute free-kick for his 22nd
goal of the season ? although
replays suggested he also touched
the ball with his hand. And Payet
set up No 2 for former Tottenham
man Clinton N?Jie on 63 minutes.
Payet?s red-hot form will make it
tough for France boss Didier
Deschamps to leave him out of his

WE SHOULD applaud referee
Clement Turpin for dismissing
Sime Vrsaljko and boss Diego
Simeone inside 13 minutes.
Atletico right-back Vrsaljko,
26, can have no complaints.
The first booking was for a
reckless hack at Jack Wilshere
and to tackle in that manner
after 75 seconds is brainless.
In the ninth minute, he made
another poor challenge ? this
time on Alexandre Lacazette.
Vrsaljko could face further
action as he refused to leave the
field of play and then started to
berate the fourth official.
And Turpin, 35, showed more
strong officiating to dismiss
Simeone four minutes later.
The Atletico chief is awful for
constantly berating officials.
I?ve seen it before and his lack
of discipline sets a bad example
to his players.

Atletico Madrid, down to ten
men early on and without their
coach Diego Simeone after he was
sent to the stands, did a number
on the Gunners.
Griezmann scored the equaliser,
evading the sliding challenges of
Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran
Mustafi to net a crucial away goal.
It was a belting finish, lifted high
into David Ospina?s net eight minutes from the end of this fiery tie.
This maddening football club
need the miracle of Madrid now.
Atletico had been a man short
after right-back Sime Vrsaljko was
sent off for a second booking
inside the first ten minutes.
His combustible coach, Simeone,
followed
three
minutes
later,
dismissed for lambasting French
ref Clement Turpin with every
swear word known to man.
After that, it should have been
the perfect playing conditions for
the Gunners.
Playing
at
full
throttle
in
Wenger?s final European home
game, they were up against a team
down to ten and without a coach.
Easy to say it but the old
Arsenal of Vieira, Bergkamp and
Henry would have destroyed this
lot on those terms.
This is a very different Arsenal.
They did so well to take the lead,
to finally force the ball beyond Jan
Oblak when Alexandre Lacazette
headed home on 61 minutes. Onenil to the Arsenal and all that.
They should have settled for that
against a side of Atletico?s pedigree,

Instead they were distracted, put
off by the Spanish side?s assertive,
overly-aggressive approach.
Once Simeone was sent packing
they turned this Europa League
semi-final, first leg into a masterclass in the dark arts.
Atletico did not play by the
rules, they bent them.
Vrsaljko had been booked inside
two minutes when he chopped Jack
Wilshere and was soon sent off
after a nibble at Lacazette?s ankle.
After that, it was chaos.
Simeone, steam coming out of
his ears on the touchline, was sent
off for giving Turpin a gobful in
the 13th minute.
It was set up to be Arsenal?s
53
night after that. But Atletico tried
every trick in the book to disrupt,
to unsettle, to unseat them from
their game. It worked.
Diego Godin, disgrace that he is,
conducted it all from his position
at the centre of Atletico?s defence.
As captain, what an example to
set. He was one of the first to go
down, creating a domino effect all
over the pitch.
The slightest contact and they
collapsed, clutching leg, groin,
chest or face. It was pitiful from
top-class professionals.
They played the system and
sadly it worked.
Those yellow-shirted scoundrels
did everything they could get away
with to stop Arsenal settling into a
match-winning
rhythm.
Godin,
SINCE the start of last season,
Alexandre Lacazette has 53 goals in
all comps, the joint-most of any
Frenchman in the top five Euro
leagues . . . with Antoine Griezmann.

Griezmann and Angel Correa all
went down in that fiery, feisty
first half.
Such a shame because Arsenal
had the big-match intensity, especially in the opening 45.
Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Aaron
Ramsey were running the show,
picking off passes whenever the
mood took them.
The chances came and went.
Lacazette hit the outside of a
post, steering his effort on to the
woodwork when he connected with
Danny Welbeck?s cross.
Oblak then saved point-blank
from the French striker when
Nacho Monreal swung in a leftwing cross. He got there in the
end, scoring just after the hour.
Wilshere set it up, combing
SIME VRSALJKO?S second yellow
card came after just nine minutes
and nine seconds ? making it the
quickest sending-off in the history
of the Europa League.

CAMBRIDGE UTD
WHY CAMBRIDGE UNITED?
I was born in Cambridge. Grandfather
was a season-ticket-holder, grandmother
worked in the club canteen. They lived
so close to the ground I was having a
post-match tea in their house before the
fans had finished singing I?ve Got A

EARLIEST MEMORIES?

HOW OFTEN DO YOU SEE THEM PLAY?
Every home game as a season-ticketholder and as many away as possible.

Alan Biley, Dion Dublin, Steve Claridge
and goalkeeper Rodney Slack, who still
lives opposite the ground. His family

THE CURRENT SET-UP?
Maybe we?ve under-achieved. Hopefully
we have an excellent time next year.
DO YOU KNOW ANY PLAYERS?
I?ve met the likes of Leon Legge, Jevani

Craven Cottage.
FOR HIS OWN BACK
Sunderland is floating aimlessly in
complete darkness ? and that?s
unnerving and unsettling.?
Coleman, who has been linked
with the vacant Ipswich post, has
insisted he would like to stay at
Sunderland ? though it depends if
there is a takeover or what funds
he might get from Short.
The Welshman said: ?I want to
create a new environment but I
need certain tools to do that.
?I?ve had absolutely no thought
about
anywhere
else
because
there?s so much to be done here.
?But we need to start getting on
with it now. I moved my family up
here because I didn?t see it being
in association with
a short-term fix. But until something changes, it?s hard for me to
say I?ll definitely be here.?
Coleman has revealed just how
low he has felt this week after the
North-East giants were dumped
out of the Championship, following
the 2-1 home defeat to Burton.
He said: ?On Saturday night I
felt finished. The weight of the
failure was overwhelming.
?The last time I was relegated as
a player was in the early ?90s. I
remember that disgusting feeling.
?But it?s harder as a manager
because you feel responsible for
everybody. It?s gut-wrenching.?
Tonight will be the first time
Coleman has returned to Fulham
as a manager since he was sacked
in 2007 after four years in charge.
Coleman, who also played for
the Cottagers from 1997 to 2002
before
joining
the
Londoners?
coaching staff, added: ?I was there
for ten years, it seems like a
lifetime ago now.
?I can?t say I?ll be going back
there with a twinge of anything.
?We?re full of disappointment,
they?re full of hope and I?d give
anything to swap circumstances.
?They have not lost since we
beat them here in December.
?We?ve only won three games
since then. It?s complete opposites.?
ON ALL THE EFL ACTION THIS WEEKEND
OUR EFL reporter runs the rule over
what to look out for in this weekend?s
exciting Championship, League One and
League Two action.
HOT TOPIC
A petition asking for Premier
League and Championship clubs to
be allowed safe-standing at their
stadiums
reaches
a
whopping
100,000 signatures.
That milestone means it will now
be considered for debate by MPs in
the House of Commons.
MANAGER WHO NEEDS A RESULT
Steve Evans, Peterborough. It has all
gone horribly wrong for the
larger-than-life Scot ? with four
consecutive defeats meaning Posh?s
promotion hopes are all but
mathematically over.
The ambitious club will not be
impressed and Evans must now
prove in the final two games he is
the man for next season.
PLAYER WHO SHOULD BE ON
THE SCORESHEET
Aleksandar Mitrovic, Fulham. The
super Serbian has hit 11 league
goals since joining on loan from
Newcastle.
He will be looking to heap more
misery on relegated Sunderland ?
and thus more joy to the fans of his
parent club ? tonight.
WHIZKID TO WATCH
Mahlon Romeo, Millwall. The son of
Soul II Soul frontman Jazzie B has
been on song himself this season
for Neil Harris? overachieving Lions.
Romeo, 22, is a pacy right-back
who will look to cause play-off rivals
Middlesbrough big problems in
tomorrow evening?s crucial clash at
the Riverside.
AMAZING STAT
Charlie
Mulgrew
scored
his
FOURTEENTH league goal of the
season against Doncaster to confirm
Blackburn?s promotion on Tuesday.
This is the first time since the
1963-64 campaign that Blackburn
Rovers have three players on 14
league goals or more ? with Danny
Graham also on 14 and star man
Bradley Dack on 18.
GAME OF THE WEEKEND
Burton v Bolton. It is amazing to
think Nigel Clough could keep
Burton up having looked cut adrift
just a few weeks ago.
But victory over the struggling
Trotters, coupled with Barnsley
failing to beat Brentford, will see
Albion climb out of the relegation
zone with one game to play.
DEAD CERT
Luton at home against Forest Green.
Nathan Jones believes his side is
the best in League Two despite
Accrington being top.
Stanley should wrap up the title at

must win in case John Coleman?s

The Tractor Boys are

early after agreeing to

Barnsley on April 10.
But Bialkowski knew

THINGS might have to get
ugly over the next two games
if Bolton are to stay up.
If not, Karl Henry is liable to
turn ugly.
Lose tomorrow?s desperate relegation
clash at Burton and the Trotters? fate
is out of their hands. So the veteran
midfielder goes into it determined that
he will leave everything on the field.
And he is just as determined that
his team-mates do likewise ? because
right now, making the game beautiful
is not top of Henry?s priority list.
He said: ?I love that saying, ?Show
me a good loser and I?ll show you a
loser?. There are jobs at stake at
Bolton, people?s livelihoods on the line.
?We are in a situation where we
have to show that we want to win.
?And to win you have to be
desperate to do so. If that means
being horrible, then being horrible is
what you have to be.?
Henry, 35, has always been as
in-your-face with his team-mates as
he has been with his opponents over a
near 20-year career.
He started out at Stoke before
captaining Wolves, then joining QPR.
Henry appreciates the finer side of
football as much as anyone.
But, when it comes to survival, he is
very much old school.
Neil Warnock, Mick McCarthy and
Tony Pulis may be seen by the game?s

STRUGGLING Bolton have won just one
of their 22 matches away from home
in the Championship this season ?
with nine draws and 12 defeats.
Friday, April 27, 2018 ...............

is the most they have ever lost in a

BOLTON WANDERERS: 40PTS
intelligentsia
a as agents of the dark
arts. But to Henry they typify the
desire and determination he knows
will be needed to keep cash?strapped
Wanderers in the Championship.
The alternative is facing up to
another financial battle to stay alive.
The midfielder played under Pulis at
Stoke and also spent six years with
McCarthy at Molineux.
As far as Henry is concerned, they
are great examples of managers who
get results when they are needed most.
He sees Warnock as the ultimate in
that department and the trio are such
an inspiration to him that he wants to
become a manager himself now.
Yet he admits that before he worked
with Warnock he could not stand him.
Henry said: ?Neil came in for a
couple of months at QPR before they
appointed Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
?All through my career, playing
against his teams, I never liked him.
?Never ever liked him, always
thought what a w***** he was.
?He came across as a horrible guy,
that?s what I thought and I really
disliked him. But at QPR he was
absolutely brilliant. McCarthy-esque,
Pulis-esque. He knows
and
understands
just
how
to motivate players. You could put him
in charge of a pub team and he would
get them into the Football League
within a given time.
?Warnock really gets it. That desire.
He gets it into his players ? and he
gets results.?
Henry is hoping his team-mates get
it after a miserable run of only one
point from six games.
He arrived in September when
Bolton had just two points from their
first nine matches.
And he admits since then he has
occasionally lived up to his reputation
for shooting straight from the lip.
He revealed: ?The way I am stems
back to when I was breaking through
at Stoke.
?One game I remember giving the
ball away, the other team almost
scored and Ged Taggart had me by
the throat telling me ?Never f***ing do
it again?.
?When I was younger I was in
teams where I was surrounded by

verges on the IMPOSS happier
a horrible bunch who are demanding of
each other, fighting each other, the
world?s against them. They are fighting
against your opponents and backing
each other up on the pitch.
?That has always been my mentality
and I try and use it wherever I am.
?And there have been times this
season when things have got heated in
the dressing room.
?Nothing major but it?s still a good
thing and I?d welcome more of that.
?Sometimes I try to bite my tongue
but I wouldn?t feel right watching
things going wrong and saying nothing.
?And you know what? I can sleep at
night. The feeling I get when I do
what I feel is right is much stronger
than reaping the benefits of keeping
your mouth shut.?
So the stakes are high and Henry
knows a lot of people are relying on
him and his team-mates.
He said: ?Things are pretty tight at
Bolton financially. We?ve had people
raising money just to keep us afloat,
staff going above and beyond to help.
?Some of them could lose their jobs
if we go down. It has been a humbling experience seeing all of that.
?So we have to give it everything for
them and for the club. Old school.?

PALMER EYES WEMBLEY
PLAY-OFF FINAL GLORY
LINCOLN striker Ollie
Palmer has set his
sights on a second
trip to Wembley this
season.
The Imps won the
Checkatrade Trophy by
beating Shrewsbury on
the hallowed turf last
month.
But Palmer knows winning
the League Two play-offs at
the Home of Football on
Bank Holiday Monday would
top that.
Danny Cowley?s men still
have an outside chance of
going up automatically after
the 4-2 midweek win at
Coventry in which Palmer
netted twice.
But, in all probability, the
end-of-season lottery is their
best chance.
Palmer, 26, told SunSport:
?We have got to be realistic.
We have six points to play
for and the gap [to third] is
four points, so it is looking
like we will have to go
through the play-offs to try
and win promotion.
?We still have to confirm
our place in the play-offs and,
if we do, I think that would
represent a great season for
Lincoln in their first season
back in the Football League.
?The Checkatrade Trophy
was special but, no disrespect
to it, a play-off final would
be much bigger and would
mean much more on the
whole. It would be huge to
get back to Wembley.?
Palmer, whose dad Andy
was Prince Charles? bodyguard for 20 years, has
experienced both glory and
heartbreak at Wembley.
The Surrey-born forward
lost in the 2015 Conference
play-off final with Grimsby
before helping Lincoln to
success last month.
The ex-Leyton Orient ace
added: ?Winning at Wembley is something you dream
about as a kid and it was
great winning the Checkatrade Trophy this season.
?It
was
amazing
for
Lincoln City. The support we
had was brilliant, taking
26,000 fans to Wembley, and
everyone had a great day out.
?I have been there before
and lost on penalties with
Grimsby ? and it is a
horrible feeling.
?When I lost at Wembley
a few years ago, I never
watched the game, never
spoke about, never looked at
pictures. But it is so different when you win there.

?I have got the most

MOOSE ON THE LOOSE
I SAID there would be tears when
Chris Coleman took the job at
Sunderland and I was proven right.
What a diabolical decision it was to
leave the plum job at Wales and take
over at a club that was obviously in
terminal decline.
In 22 months he has gone from
managing his country in a European
Championship semi-final, to leading a
team to Championship relegation.
Yes, he got a whopping great pay
rise, but was it worth it?
Is he happy? He?s vowed to stay at
the Stadium of Light. But will he be
handed the resources to bring the
club back up?

They all are right now.
Glynn & Co are over the moon as
they?re going to finish above their

MK look certain to drop into
League Two tomorrow, whereas AFC

ago and started out in the ninth tier
of the English football pyramid, look
set for a third straight season in

There will never be any love lost
between the two sides and Glynn says
justice has (finally) been done.
BARNET?S stay in the Football

not win at Morecambe ? and then
even that might not be enough.
The Bees have had more managers
this season than I?ve had hot dinners

surprise that this gung-ho attitude has

They should have shut the stable
door and bolted it behind them.
The very best do that, recognising the threats and the perils of
pushing ahead for a second goal.
Simeone resisted the temptation
to send for Diego Costa from the
bench to rescue them.
Arsenal pushed on, pretty sure
they could score again. They made
the wrong call.
Griezmann had been quiet in
the first half, restricted to two
chances both saved by Ospina ?
and a couple of shameful tumbles.
Still, he is a mighty fine player.
When the opportunity presented
itself with eight minutes left, he

He could be back in action next
season but only if he gets a new

RENAISSANCE . . .
Tim Ream has had a

DERBY did Fulham a massive
favour on Tuesday by beating
Cardiff, a result which has
eased the pressure on Slavis
a
Jokanovic?s side.
Win
tonight
and
they
leapfrog their Welsh rivals
putting the pressure right back,
on Neil Warnock?s hopefuls.
It remains a must-win match
but Cardiff have lost three of
their last five and Fulham are
hitting their straps at exactly
the right time.
The
concern
for
many
Cottagers fans is the worst
case scenario if they miss outon promotion.
Because then star players
Ryan Sessegnon, Tom
Cairney
(right)
and Aleksandar
Mitrovic
will
be likely to
leave the club.
Fulham look
to have more
players equipped to play in
the
Premier
League
than
Cardiff but the hard
part is getting over the line.
I?m struggling to conjure up
scenario where Sunderland wina
at Craven Cottage ? it?s a very
dark time for the Black Cats.
Any manager would have
struggled but Chris Coleman
arrived in mid-November and
must shoulder his share of the
blame for their demise.
The Welshman has said he
plans to stay and bring the
club back up.
But will he be handed the
resources to do so?
The club are saddled with
huge debt and Premier Leagu
parachute payments will bee
swallowed up by that.
I fancy Fulham will serve up
more bad news for Sunderlan
d
tonight on Coleman?s return to
Craven Cottage.
FOR HIS OWN BACK
Sunderland is floating aimlessly in
complete darkness ? and that?s
unnerving and unsettling.?
Coleman, who has been linked
with the vacant Ipswich post, has
insisted he would like to stay at
Sunderland ? though it depends if
there is a takeover or what funds
he might get from Short.
The Welshman said: ?I want to
create a new environment but I
need certain tools to do that.
?I?ve had absolutely no thought
about
anywhere
else
because
there?s so much to be done here.
?But we need to start getting on
with it now. I moved my family up
here because I didn?t see it being
in association with
a short-term fix. But until something changes, it?s hard for me to
say I?ll definitely be here.?
Coleman has revealed just how
low he has felt this week after the
North-East giants were dumped
out of the Championship, following
the 2-1 home defeat to Burton.
He said: ?On Saturday night I
felt finished. The weight of the
failure was overwhelming.
?The last time I was relegated as
a player was in the early ?90s. I
remember that disgusting feeling.
?But it?s harder as a manager
because you feel responsible for
everybody. It?s gut-wrenching.?
Tonight will be the first time
Coleman has returned to Fulham
as a manager since he was sacked
in 2007 after four years in charge.
Coleman, who also played for
the Cottagers from 1997 to 2002
before
joining
the
Londoners?
coaching staff, added: ?I was there
for ten years, it seems like a
lifetime ago now.
?I can?t say I?ll be going back
there with a twinge of anything.
?We?re full of disappointment,
they?re full of hope and I?d give
anything to swap circumstances.
?They have not lost since we
beat them here in December.
?We?ve only won three games
since then. It?s complete opposites.?
ON ALL THE EFL ACTION THIS WEEKEND
OUR EFL reporter runs the rule over
what to look out for in this weekend?s
exciting Championship, League One and
League Two action.
HOT TOPIC
A petition asking for Premier
League and Championship clubs to
be allowed safe-standing at their
stadiums
reaches
a
whopping
100,000 signatures.
That milestone means it will now
be considered for debate by MPs in
the House of Commons.
MANAGER WHO NEEDS A RESULT
Steve Evans, Peterborough. It has all
gone horribly wrong for the
larger-than-life Scot ? with four
consecutive defeats meaning Posh?s
promotion hopes are all but
mathematically over.
The ambitious club will not be
impressed and Evans must now
prove in the final two games he is
the man for next season.
PLAYER WHO SHOULD BE ON
THE SCORESHEET
Aleksandar Mitrovic, Fulham. The
super Serbian has hit 11 league
goals since joining on loan from
Newcastle.
He will be looking to heap more
misery on relegated Sunderland ?
and thus more joy to the fans of his
parent club ? tonight.
WHIZKID TO WATCH
Mahlon Romeo, Millwall. The son of
Soul II Soul frontman Jazzie B has
been on song himself this season
for Neil Harris? overachieving Lions.
Romeo, 22, is a pacy right-back
who will look to cause play-off rivals
Middlesbrough big problems in
tomorrow evening?s crucial clash at
the Riverside.
AMAZING STAT
Charlie
Mulgrew
scored
his
FOURTEENTH league goal of the
season against Doncaster to confirm
Blackburn?s promotion on Tuesday.
This is the first time since the
1963-64 campaign that Blackburn
Rovers have three players on 14
league goals or more ? with Danny
Graham also on 14 and star man
Bradley Dack on 18.
GAME OF THE WEEKEND
Burton v Bolton. It is amazing to
think Nigel Clough could keep
Burton up having looked cut adrift
just a few weeks ago.
But victory over the struggling
Trotters, coupled with Barnsley
failing to beat Brentford, will see
Albion climb out of the relegation
zone with one game to play.
DEAD CERT
Luton at home against Forest Green.
Nathan Jones believes his side is
the best in League Two despite
Accrington being top.
Stanley should wrap up the title at
home to Lincoln ? but the Hatters
must win in case John Coleman?s
men slip up.
COLEMAN . . . scathing
CHEEKY PUNT FOR YOUR ACCA
Barnet away at Morecambe. Only a
win will do for the Bees in their
fight for survival ? while the
Shrimps can ensure their safety with
just a point.
But do not be surprised if Martin
Allen somehow inspires three points
to take it to the final day.

Bialkowski has revealed
how former assistant boss
Terry Connor let slip news
of Mick McCarthy?s exit
prematurely.
The Tractor Boys are
looking for a manager
after McCarthy walked out
early after agreeing to
step down at the end of
the season.
The ex-Wolves and Ireland boss was barracked
by some fans over his
style of play and he told
the squad he was leaving
after the 1-0 win against
Barnsley on April 10.
But Bialkowski knew
something was up when
Connor tried to gee the
keeper up in the dressing
room before the game.
Bialkowski,
speaking
ahead of tomorrow?s trip to
Reading, said: ?Before the
game TC said to me, ?Come
on, Bart, one more, last
one?. Then he said, ?No!
Three more, three more!?
?Obviously

had
already made the decision.
?I understand the fans?
frustrations and I respect
and love them, but it
wasn?t nice to hear the
chants aimed at Mick.
?I had never experienced anything like the
home game against Hull.
After ten minutes the
atmosphere was toxic.?
In January, McCarthy
revealed that the Polish
keeper, 30, had agreed a
new deal until 2020 but
he is yet to sign.
Bialkowski, winner of

HARRY REDKNAPP has let

The Tractor Boys are
searching for a new boss
after the departure of
Mick McCarthy.
And Redknapp, who has
been out of work since
being sacked by Birmingham
in
September,
declared his interest in
the Portman Road role.
The
much-travelled
ex-West Ham, Spurs and
Portsmouth manager, 71,

THINGS might have to get
ugly over the next two games
if Bolton are to stay up.
If not, Karl Henry is liable to
turn ugly.
Lose tomorrow?s desperate relegation
clash at Burton and the Trotters? fate
is out of their hands. So the veteran
midfielder goes into it determined that
he will leave everything on the field.
And he is just as determined that
his team-mates do likewise ? because
right now, making the game beautiful
is not top of Henry?s priority list.
He said: ?I love that saying, ?Show
me a good loser and I?ll show you a
loser?. There are jobs at stake at
Bolton, people?s livelihoods on the line.
?We are in a situation where we
have to show that we want to win.
?And to win you have to be
desperate to do so. If that means
being horrible, then being horrible is
what you have to be.?
Henry, 35, has always been as
in-your-face with his team-mates as
he has been with his opponents over a
near 20-year career.
He started out at Stoke before
captaining Wolves, then joining QPR.
Henry appreciates the finer side of
football as much as anyone.
But, when it comes to survival, he is
very much old school.
Neil Warnock, Mick McCarthy and
Tony Pulis may be seen by the game?s

STRUGGLING Bolton have won just one
of their 22 matches away from home
in the Championship this season ?
with nine draws and 12 defeats.
Friday, April 27, 2018 ...............

is the most they have ever lost in a

BOLTON WANDERERS: 40PTS
intelligentsia
a as agents of the dark
arts. But to Henry they typify the
desire and determination he knows
will be needed to keep cash?strapped
Wanderers in the Championship.
The alternative is facing up to
another financial battle to stay alive.
The midfielder played under Pulis at
Stoke and also spent six years with
McCarthy at Molineux.
As far as Henry is concerned, they
are great examples of managers who
get results when they are needed most.
He sees Warnock as the ultimate in
that department and the trio are such
an inspiration to him that he wants to
become a manager himself now.
Yet he admits that before he worked
with Warnock he could not stand him.
Henry said: ?Neil came in for a
couple of months at QPR before they
appointed Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
?All through my career, playing
against his teams, I never liked him.
?Never ever liked him, always
thought what a w***** he was.
?He came across as a horrible guy,
that?s what I thought and I really
disliked him. But at QPR he was
absolutely brilliant. McCarthy-esque,
Pulis-esque. He knows
and
understands
just
how
to motivate players. You could put him
in charge of a pub team and he would
get them into the Football League
within a given time.
?Warnock really gets it. That desire.
He gets it into his players ? and he
gets results.?
Henry is hoping his team-mates get
it after a miserable run of only one
point from six games.
He arrived in September when
Bolton had just two points from their
first nine matches.
And he admits since then he has
occasionally lived up to his reputation
for shooting straight from the lip.
He revealed: ?The way I am stems
back to when I was breaking through
at Stoke.
?One game I remember giving the
ball away, the other team almost
scored and Ged Taggart had me by
the throat telling me ?Never f***ing do
it again?.
?When I was younger I was in
teams where I was surrounded by
people

verges on the IMPOSS happier
a horrible bunch who are demanding of
each other, fighting each other, the
world?s against them. They are fighting
against your opponents and backing
each other up on the pitch.
?That has always been my mentality
and I try and use it wherever I am.
?And there have been times this
season when things have got heated in
the dressing room.
?Nothing major but it?s still a good
thing and I?d welcome more of that.
?Sometimes I try to bite my tongue
but I wouldn?t feel right watching
things going wrong and saying nothing.
?And you know what? I can sleep at
night. The feeling I get when I do
what I feel is right is much stronger
than reaping the benefits of keeping
your mouth shut.?
So the stakes are high and Henry
knows a lot of people are relying on
him and his team-mates.
He said: ?Things are pretty tight at
Bolton financially. We?ve had people
raising money just to keep us afloat,
staff going above and beyond to help.
?Some of them could lose their jobs
if we go down. It has been a humbling experience seeing all of that.
?So we have to give it everything for
them and for the club. Old school.?

PALMER EYES WEMBLEY
PLAY-OFF FINAL GLORY
LINCOLN striker Ollie
Palmer has set his
sights on a second
trip to Wembley this
season.
The Imps won the
Checkatrade Trophy by
beating Shrewsbury on
the hallowed turf last
month.
But Palmer knows winning
the League Two play-offs at
the Home of Football on
Bank Holiday Monday would
top that.
Danny Cowley?s men still
have an outside chance of
going up automatically after
the 4-2 midweek win at
Coventry in which Palmer
netted twice.
But, in all probability, the
end-of-season lottery is their
best chance.
Palmer, 26, told SunSport:
?We have got to be realistic.
We have six points to play
for and the gap [to third] is
four points, so it is looking
like we will have to go
through the play-offs to try
and win promotion.
?We still have to confirm
our place in the play-offs and,
if we do, I think that would
represent a great season for
Lincoln in their first season
back in the Football League.
?The Checkatrade Trophy
was special but, no disrespect
to it, a play-off final would
be much bigger and would
mean much more on the
whole. It would be huge to
get back to Wembley.?
Palmer, whose dad Andy
was Prince Charles? bodyguard for 20 years, has
experienced both glory and
heartbreak at Wembley.
The Surrey-born forward
lost in the 2015 Conference
play-off final with Grimsby
before helping Lincoln to
success last month.
The ex-Leyton Orient ace
added: ?Winning at Wembley is something you dream
about as a kid and it was
great winning the Checkatrade Trophy this season.
?It
was
amazing
for
Lincoln City. The support we
had was brilliant, taking
26,000 fans to Wembley, and
everyone had a great day out.
?I have been there before
and lost on penalties with
Grimsby ? and it is a
horrible feeling.
?When I lost at Wembley
a few years ago, I never
watched the game, never
spoke about, never looked at
pictures. But it is so different when you win there.
?I

League Two Player of the
Month award for March,
despite not starting a single
game in the month.
His incredible goal return
of three in 108 minutes of
football
throughout
last
month saw him scoop the
award voted for by fans
across the country.
Palmer said: ?The PFA
fans? award came as a
surprise to me as I have not
been starting a lot of games.
?To get it was a brilliant
achievement and I am very
proud to get it.
?I have got the most
appearances at the club but
not the most minutes.
?I am happy with my
performances. I have got 11
goals and I have only made
a handful of starts, which
has been extremely frustrating ? but you have got to
try and stay positive.
?You want to play as many
games as possible and if you
didn?t then you probably
shouldn?t be playing football.
?I have done as well as I
could in the game time I
have had to try and help
the team get as high up the
league as possible.
?It is a huge club going in
the right direction and I
have got some important
goals this season, so I hope
to keep contributing to the
team.?
BRO DEAL
THE COWLEY brothers have agreed
new four-year deals with Lincoln.
Imps boss Danny and assistant Nicky
have extended their
terms until 2022.
The club said:
?Danny and Nicky

an FA Trophy semi-final
and the National League
title and the Imps? return to the EFL.

certainly didn?t go into
this season thinking it
could be a possibility.
?Maybe that was naive. I
have made what turned
out to be two bad
managerial decisions.?
