WARNING FROM TOP COP
P
RISE OF NEO-NAZI
TERROR MENACE
UK?s twin peril with IS plots
BRITAIN?S
leading
counterterrorism cop last night warned
of a twin peril facing the country from white neo-Nazis as well
as Islamic-inspired attackers.
Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley revealed
four terror plots involving rightwing fanatics had been foiled since
last March.
There were ten jihadist conspiracies
smashed by police and MI5 during the
same period since Khalid Masood?s
Westminster attacks.
Internet firms must go further
in helping stop terrorists and
extremists from ?plying their
trade? online, Mr Rowley warned.
In a worrying new trend, at
least two of the foiled neo-Nazi
plots involved a group rather
than lone wolves.
Mr Rowley singled out the
banned far-right National Action,
saying ?for the best part of 18
months in the UK, a home-

grown white supremacist neo-Nazi terrorist organisation? had been active.
A third of all referrals to the Government?s anti-radicalisation prevention programme are now right-wing extremists.
The police chief, retiring next month,
added that right-wing terrorism was not
previously organised but pointed out:
?Plots within the last year have featured
groups and organisation.?
The four neo-Nazi plots foiled include
the one by 20-year-old Ethan Stables, a
closet bisexual convicted last month of
trying to launch a machete attack on
a gay pride event in his home town
Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
He was brainwashed by Nazi
propaganda on the Internet and
caught after posting a message on
a far-right Facebook page saying
he was ?going to war? and
planned to ?slaughter.?
Mr Rowley described internet
propaganda as the ?bloodstream
that drives terrorism?.
MI5 recently joined the fight
against far-right terrorism for
the first time.

But he said: ?We still see cases where
parents convicted of terrorist-related offences retain care of their own children.
?I wonder if we need more parity

protecting

from
paedophile and terrorist parents.?
He feared home schooling was being
used as a cover to radicalise children.

TRADE supremo Liam
Fox will today insist that
staying in the customs
union after Brexit will
leave Britain worse off.
The International Trade
Secretary will warn it
will be like ?trying to
negotiate with one arm
tied behind our back?.
He believes it will bar
Britain from striking its
own new trade deals with
non-EU countries.
Mr Fox will say: ?As
rule takers, without any
say in how the rules
were made, we would be
in a worse position than
we are today.
?It would be a complete sell-out of Britain?s
national interests.
?The inevitable price of
trying to negotiate with
one arm tied behind our
back is that we would
become less attractive to
potential trade partners.?
His speech is a challenge to Labour and business leaders, who are
demanding Britain stays
in the customs union.
It will also lay down
the
gauntlet
to
Tory
rebels who may inflict a
damaging defeat on the
Government on the issue.
Mr Fox?s speech in
London today also sets
the stage for a longawaited
address

A FIFTH Briton has died
after the Grand Canyon
helicopter crash, it was
announced last night.
Newlywed Ellie Udall,
29, died in a Las Vegas
burns unit on Sunday,
just a few days after her
husband Jonathan, 32.
The
couple,
from
Southampton, were on
honeymoon when their
sightseeing
chopper
crashed on February 10.
Pal Chris Tucker wrote:
?The only consolation I
can muster is that she is
no longer in pain and is,
I hope, with Jon.
?May we never forget
this wonderful couple.?
Stuart Hill, 30, his girlfriend Becky Dobson, 27,
and his brother Jason, 32,
from
Worthing,
West
Sussex, also died.
Brit Jennifer Barham,
39, and pilot Scott Booth,
42, are still critical.
A BOXER died after
telling fans at the end of
a brutal bout: ?I?m glad
we can put on a show.?
Scott Westgarth had to be
supported by coaching staff
after his points victory in
the ten-round contest.
Clearly in pain and holding
his head in a post-match interview, Scott, 31, said of boxing: ?I
just enjoy it. I do it for fun, not
because I think I?m going to be
a world-class fighter.
?I just do it purely for entertainment and I?m glad we can
put on a show and keep everybody entertained.?
He added: ?I think I controlled
the fight. He was loading up all
the time, throwing big bombs.?
But Scott quickly became so
ill doctors called an ambulance.
He had a bleed on the brain
and died in hospital the day
after Saturday night?s bout. His
death was announced yesterday.
Former
heavyweight
world
champ Frank Bruno wrote in
tribute: ?Very saddened to hear a
boxer has lost his life, my
thoughts are with his family.?
Ricky Hatton added: ?Heartbreaking. Thoughts to his friends
and family and to anyone
involved in the show.?
Scott?s
sister
Bethany,
24,
wrote: ?This man has left a huge
big eared shaped hole in my
heart. I am so proud of you. I
cannot explain how devastated I
am it was the fight of your life.?
Scott, a chef, personal trainer
and former ski instructor, only
took up boxing at 24, turning
professional in September 2013.
In the fight at Doncaster
Dome, South Yorks, he knocked
down opponent Dec Spelman
but was also floored himself.
On winning the biggest match
of his career, delighted girlfriend
Natalie Kerr, 35, leapt into the
ring to congratulate him.
Scott ? whose dad John boxed
for the European heavyweight
title ? had moved to Sheffield
from Prudhoe, Northumberland.
He is the third boxer to die
after a professional bout in the
UK in five years.
Factory worker Dec, of Scunthorpe, Lincs, said: ?I?m absolutely devastated. It was a hard,
brutal fight. I?m thinking about
his family at the moment.?
British Boxing Board of Control chief Robert Smith said:
?I?ve spoken to the doctors and
officials in charge and am satisfied with the procedures. My
condolences to all of his family.?
A GoFundMe page for Scott
had last night raised �490.

THE
BBC?S STEPH ?DEAD RIGHT? ON WAGE GAP
NORTH
STAR . . .
Beeb?s
Steph
SAYS
Brexit bottler
JEREMY Corbyn is just at the start of his
great betrayal of Labour?s Brexit voters.
First he wants a new customs union
with the EU. Almost inevitably he will
cave to his Remainer MPs and members
to demand to stay in the single market
and surrender immigration controls too.
It?s not just us saying that. So is Labour?s biggest private donor John Mills.
The most cynical lie of the many, not
the few, that Corbyn told yesterday was
that he speaks for the working class.
In fact he has calculated that he now
needs middle-class Remainers more ?
and thinks Labour?s core voters will
stick with him come what may. That
may prove politically fatal. We hope so.
It was jaw-dropping, though, to watch
Remainers, hoping to neuter Brexit, line
up credulously behind Corbyn?s wishlist
of impossible demands to Brussels.
Not least the Europhile fools of the
CBI, incredibly claiming he was
?putting jobs first? despite the threat a
hard-left, high-tax Government would
pose to every private sector job and the
City, the engine room of our economy.
Corbyn?s ?negotiating position? differs
from Theresa May?s in a single, but vital,
respect. She rightly intends to open us
up to trade deals with the fast-growing
superpowers beyond the EU. That?s the
future ? a golden opportunity Corbyn
would kill in his retreat to the past.
Thankfully, what he says matters only
if mutinous Tories back him and defeat
the Government?s strategy ? on which
they all stood for election last June.
But Corbyn?s wild delusions have
already been knocked back in Brussels.
If the rebels want to salvage anything
from their referendum defeat, they should
turn to the Prime Minister instead.
Jezza mail fail
A RARE glimpse into Corbyn?s closed mind:
Why, he wonders, do we need more
than one firm delivering mail when we
only have one letterbox each? The
answer is that proper competition almost
always cuts prices and increases quality.
Following Corbyn?s logic, why would
we ever need competing loo roll brands
instead of one approved by the socialist
state? We only have one backside each.
And Corbyn?s speaking out of his.
Weight a sec
MAKING restaurant menus list calories is
a flab-busting plan The Sun could support.
It doesn?t bully or take more money
from the low-paid, unlike the idiotic
sugar tax. It simply tells diners what?s
in each dish, maybe alongside recommended daily intakes for both sexes.
Yes, those vary from person to person.
And no, solely totting up calories
doesn?t equal a healthy diet.
We wonder too how to stop cynical
restaurants underestimating them.
But Britain is seriously overweight.
This is a harmless idea to give punters
pause. And research shows it could work.
...
Nowt wrong with
us working-class
folk...we deserve
the posh pay too
says Sun writer and Northerner
LYNSEY CLARKE
THE 6pm news was the bane of my
life as a kid ? posh newsreaders
talking in a voice I didn?t recognise
about my world that I thought they
knew nothing about.
Fast-forward 25 years and Middlesbrough lass Steph McGovern is perched
on the BBC Breakfast sofa presenting the
news in her comforting Smoggie accent.
But she is not the norm in media ? or
any other profession.
Working-class Brits often come last
when it comes to getting ahead.
Steph says she?s paid less than female
colleagues who were privately educated
and was told she is ?too common? to
present the news. The Beeb concentrates
too much on ethnic diversity and not
enough on class, she added.
Sadly, I?m not surprised. As a northerner with a working-class background,
I?ve experienced sneers, jokes and snobbery throughout my career. It happens
as soon as I open my mouth and my
long, droning Yorkshire vowels seep out
to pollute the superior air.
The statistics paint a sorry picture. A
Sutton Trust survey found while just
seven per cent of the population
attended fee-paying schools in 2016, 61
per cent of the country?s top doctors, 71
per cent of top military officers, 74 per
cent of senior judges and more than half
of
leading
print
journalists
were
privately educated.
Working-class kids underachieve in
education and fail to get into our best
universities. In 2016 the Sutton Trust
found that of poorer white kids, just a
quarter of boys and a third of girls
achieved five or more good GCSEs.
In 2015 the top third of the most selective
colleges,
including
Cambridge,
Oxford and other leading Russell Group
(an association of research universities)
institutions such as Bristol, recruited
SEVEN TIMES as many students from
Britain?s most affluent neighbourhoods as
from its poorest.
On paper, I don?t look daft. I?ve got
strong A-Levels, a law degree and a
Masters in journalism. But I have turned
up at job interviews and seen eyes roll
as I skip words in sentences, say ?er,
like? then chuck in a colloquialism like
?owt? . . . or summat like that.
Well, I?m sorry. At my Huddersfield
state secondary school we didn?t have
the time or inclination for careers prep,
elocution lessons or debate club.
Our sole purpose was to avoid getting
bog-washed. That meant ditching extracurricular activities, playing down academic ability, and never being too good
at anything. No one wanted to be a swot.
Instead, we skived, fagged it behind
the boiler house, peanutted ties, launched
fire hoses in corridors and played
friendly games of nipple cripple. Fitting
in with the crowd was a full-time job.
My mates weren?t bothered about going
to university so neither was I.
Depressing insight into
a rigged system
?I?ll be a hairdresser,? I thought ?
until I accidentally highlighted my barnet grey and was pebble-dashed with
?Granny? jibes for a year.
It was only when I entered Sixth Form
and mingled with people from grammar
and private schools that I realised these
kids voluntarily put their hand up in
class . . . without getting an elastic band
pinged at them.
A competitiveness sprung up inside
me, as I was determined not to let
middle-class folk outdo me.
I stepped up my game and got into
university to study law.
But even after three years of hard
graft, bigwigs from the legal profession
came to a careers lecture and basically
said the Bar was an old boys? club with
little time for outsiders.
That counted me out,
then. No room at the
Inns of Court for the
likes of me.
They were telling the
truth.
A study in 2010 found
the UK?s top law firms
were
rejecting
wellqualified
candidates
REPORT . . . yesterday?s Sun
because their accents were too working
class. That depressing insight into a
rigged system was enough to put me off
my dream. After all my hard work, I
didn?t want to fail.
I reverted to my teen self and decided
I wasn?t going to bust a gut fitting my
square peg into a round hole.
But dossing around for the next five
years left me unfulfilled. I decided to go
for journalism.
I had made it through university,
against people like those on the Beeb
who I?d sighed at years earlier, so why
not? It has been a hard slog ? but it
was worth it.
I have seen how 18-year-olds can walk
into media jobs if they know someone
in the industry, or if their parents can
afford to pay for their London digs while
they intern for free.
Even now, after years in the industry, I
know there are certain publications
where my loud, northern drawl would
have me banished to room 101, sorting
the post if I was lucky.
They would assume I was a useless
thicko because I was born outside the
M25. Some prejudices are hard to shift.
Organisations like the BBC have
schemes to improve diversity when it
comes to women, people with disabilities,
ethnic minorities and the LGBT community. Good for them.
I am all for diversifying the workforce
and Steph is absolutely right ? it is
?dead important to represent loads of
different cultures?.
But in placing so much emphasis on
recruiting minorities, the politically correct elite are forgetting about the hefty,
under-achieving majority of workingclass Brits ? especially those living up
North ? who feel left
behind.
What
is
anyone
doing for US?
More needs to be
done by all employers
if we are to make
Britain
a
country
where
anyone
can
achieve their dreams,
regardless
of
their
background.

THE

sex
scandal has shown charities exploited the very

Development
Secretary said yesterday.
Penny Mordaunt accused organisations of protecting perpetrators, failing to deal with them or
turning a blind eye.
Oxfam GB was temporarily suspended in Haiti
pending an inquiry into
how it handled former
staff paying for sex.
Ms Mordaunt suggested
the scandal may have
grown from fundraising
pressures,
competition
and a belief that ?reporting wrongdoing would do
more harm than good?.
She told an international development conference in London: ?We

How the hell they were

immediately.
?I actually feel a real

IN the place where right-on
BBC1 dramas and Viz comics
collide, you?ll find Collateral?s DI Kip Glaspie ? the
pole-vaulting policewoman.
She?s heavily pregnant as well,
whenever continuity allows.
So, yeah, Kip ?jumped for a

now she solves hate crimes and
talks
to
the
world
like
a
Guardian
editorial,
loudly
exclaiming: ?Escape war, make
your way to England, make a new
life for yourself in a garage. And
that?s the best we can do, is it??
As deeply annoying as that is,
though, I cannot deny Kip is a
perfect fit for Collateral, which has
taken me on quite a ?journey?,
these past three weeks.

turned to irritation as it became clear
writer David Hare had thrown a lot of
the Beeb?s agenda and all his public
schoolboy self-loathing at Collateral.
There was human trafficking, poverty,
rape, misogyny, racism, the minimum
wage,
military
crimes,
American
imperialism, Iraq, Afghanistan.
Israel also got it in the neck for turning
Billie Piper?s character into a basket
case. Although I think Chris Evans also
needs to take his share of the blame for
that one.
By the end of last night?s episode,
however,
something
unexpected
had
happened. Collateral had become so
pompous, up itself and righteous it was
making me laugh. Quite a lot.
How so?
Well, it?s partly down to the fact that
the pole-vaulting policewoman, who I?m
almost willing actress Carey Mulligan to
bring out of sporting retirement, isn?t the
half of it here.
Other unlikely characters include: A

If, at this point, you?re expecting

can practically hear the gears change

WIPED OUT
By DAN SALES, ROB PATTINSON,
KATIE HODGE and GARY O?SHEA
A MOTHER and her two
sons were last night feared
to be among five people
killed in a gas explosion.
Care worker Mary Ragoobeer,
46, and boys Shane, 18, and
Sean, 16, were missing after the
blast ripped apart the family?s
flat above a shop in Leicester.
Shane?s girlfriend, Leah Reek, 18,
and
a
22-year-old
shopworker
known only as Victoria, were also
said to be unaccounted for.
Mary?s husband, Jose, also a care
worker, was thought to have been
out at the time. Their other son,
Scotty, 15, was reportedly pulled
from the rubble by a passer-by.
The boys? uncle, Krishna Rungen,
69, said Scotty was in hospital with
his father and they were desperate
for news. He added: ?We are devas-
Mum and 2 sons feared
dead as 5 killed in blast
tated. It is an awful situation. We
are a very close family.?
Sunday night?s explosion destroyed
the family?s two-storey flat, which
collapsed on to a Polish shop below.
The cause remains unclear but
the owner of the Zabka supermarket described hearing a loud
bang before coming to, covered in
rubble, on the storeroom floor.
Aram Kurd, 33, said: ?I couldn?t
breathe. Everywhere I could see fire,

Now he wants the 5,500 staff to pedal

The married father-of-two, who took

shouting Victoria! Victoria! Victoria!?
Mr Rungen said Scotty had cuts
and bruises but was otherwise OK.
He added: ?He was full of smoke,
dazed, asking where everyone was.?
Police said they were continuing
to search the rubble for survivors.
They confirmed there were five
deaths but would not release names.
Tributes were paid online to hospice volunteer Leah, from Asfordby,

Now she is planning to capitalise on her
higher profile by going into clothing and
cosmetics.
The singer, left, has filed a trademark
registering her name to release a range of
items and cash-in on her success.
An insider said: ?Dua has had a great
year, especially winning the British
Breakthrough Artist and British Female
Brit awards, but she has to tour
relentlessly to make a lot of money.
?Releasing her own line of clothes,
perfume or make-up would make her a
fortune and the wheels have been put in
motion for that to happen.
?She has a lot of young fans who look
up to her on social media and she knows
there is a market to capture.?
The trademark documents also show
she would consider creating her own
stationery and even computer games.
On the back of the Brits her self-titled
debut album was at No2 in the midweek
chart update ? eight months after its
release, when it only peaked at No5.
But she faces tough competition from
the Greatest Showman soundtrack, which
could spend an eighth week at the top of
the charts this Friday.

The Prime Minister, above
right, approached Capital FM
DJ ROMAN KEMP about making
a video to target the social
media generation.
But she turned down his idea
of being filmed running through
a field of wheat.
In an exclusive chat, Roman ?
the son of SPANDAU BALLET?s
MARTIN KEMP, above left ? said:
?I was asked to do a campaign
and I didn?t really want to do it.
?I said I would if I could do
an action-movie trailer of her
running through a field of
wheat. I never got a reply from
her people.
?It?s probably for the best. I
have my political views but hers
was a party I?m not bothered
about getting too involved in.?
The Tory leader, famed for
her leopard-print heels, is yet to
live down one of the most awkward moments of last year?s
election campaign.
She admitted running through
a wheat field and upsetting a
local farmer was the naughtiest
thing she had ever done.
Before emerging as the least
hip Prime Minister since JOHN
MAJOR, she revealed on Radio
4?s Desert Island Discs in
2014 that her top pop
pick was FRANKIE VALLI
& THE FOUR SEASONS.
By contrast, two of
her
predecessors
in
No10, TONY BLAIR and
DAVID
CAMERON,
would regularly annoy
rock
stars
by
proclaiming
how
much
they liked their music. Even
GORDON BROWN claimed he
liked ARCTIC MONKEYS in a
bid to appeal to the younger
generation ? although when
pressed he couldn?t name any of
their songs.
Roman, below, hosted ITV2?s
coverage
of
the
Brits
last
Wednesday. And he reckons it
won?t be long until he is fronting the main gig.
The DJ said: ?Of course I
would like to present the
Brits one day.
?Within
the
next
five years I?m going
to do that.
?I don?t see any
reason why not. I
always set myself
as high ambitions
as possible.?
Confidence isn?t an
issue for him, then.

AUDI MANIAC FACES JAIL
By JONATHAN REILLY
A DRINK-driver who
killed three teenagers
walking to a party
faces years in jail.
Jaynesh Chudasama, 28,
was 2 times the legal
limit and had cannabis in
his system when his Audi
A5 mounted a pavement
and smashed into them.
VICTIM: HARRY, 17
VICTIM: JOSH, 16

mangled Audi A5
DRINK-DRIVER
KILLED 3 TEENS
IN 71mph CRASH
Yesterday he bowed his
head as he admitted killing
Harry Rice, 17, George Wilkinson, and Josh McGuinness,
both 16.
Accident investigators said
he was driving the motor at
71mph when he overtook
another car around a bend.
The
Old
Bailey
heard
Chudasama narrowly missed
two mates of the lads and
three nearby girls in Hayes,
West London, on January 26.
He ran off but a lad chased
and
knocked
him down with
a bottle before
dragging
him
back.
Prosecutor
Crispin Aylett
said of the lad:
?It?s
just
as
well
he
did
otherwise
he
(Chudasama)
would
have
escaped
and
would
have
sobered
up
undetected.?
The
car
rental
worker,
of Hayes, admitted causing
death by dangerous driving.
Family and friends of the
victims wept as the court
heard details of how the
schoolmates died on their
way to a 16th birthday bash.
George died instantly along
with Josh, who was hit with
such force he was thrown
over a wall into a cemetery.
Harry was carried on the
car bonnet until it crushed
him against a wall. He died
almost instantly.
Mr Aylett said: ?In the
course of overtaking another
vehicle the defendant, who
had been drinking, lost control of his car.
?The vehicle struck and
fatally injured three boys
walking along the pavement.?
One witness saw the boys
?fly into the air?. A passenger in the Audi fled but later
handed
himself
in
and
remains on police bail.
Sentencing is on March 9.
Det Sgt Jane Shaw said:
?In a matter of moments,
three young lives were over.
The loss is immeasurable.?

WEIRD WORLD OFF
By
GRANT ROLLINGS
HE is the master of the
macabre who makes films
featuring demons, monsters and robots.
But Guillermo del Toro?s dark
plots are not nearly as fantastical
as parts of his own life.
The director says he has seen
ghosts and been chased by UFOs, he
used to eat his lunch in a morgue
and is so obsessed with the supernatural that his devout grandma felt the
need to exorcise him ? twice.
He also collects ghoulish objects
including specimens of ?mermaids
and malformed children?. He has so
many he had to buy two houses to
store them.
It is little wonder he is behind an
adult fairytale about a romance
between a mute cleaner and a
superpowered fish-man.
The Shape Of Water
stars Brit Sally Hawkins
and is up for 13 Oscars
in LA this weekend,
with
Guillermo,
53,
favourite to land Best
Director.
In
an
exclusive
interview, he told The
Sun: ?You have to live
to tell stories. You have
to be a participant in
the world to tell stories
about it. I have had my
share of weird stuff happen. I?m a sceptic but I
saw a UFO at age 16, for
sure. It was a flying saucer
with lights, a circle.
?A friend and I were on a
highway and we saw a light on the
horizon moving super-fast.
?The thing went from there to 1,000
yards away in less than a second. It
was exactly as they do it in the movies. We got scared, very scared,
jumped in the car and drove away. It
followed us for a few seconds and
then I looked back and it was gone.?
Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Guillermo was brought up on the supernatural thanks to mum Guadalupe?s
hobby of reading tarot cards.
He said: ?Most of the people I
know in Mexico have had extraordinary experiences with ghosts or
aberrations and we discuss them in a
very natural way.
?I heard a ghost, twice. My father
talks about flying saucers coming out
from the water at sea in the Sixties
and Seventies and going into a
mothership.?
But unconventional beliefs were not
shared by grandmother Josefina, who
cared for the young Guillermo.
The strict Catholic was so worried
about his obsession with monsters
that she tried to purge him of his
dark ideas.
She made the soles of his feet
bleed by making him walk on bottle
tops as a form of punishment and
performed exorcisms.
Guillermo recalled: ?My parents
were going through the Sixties, they
were out a lot. I was basically raised
by her. She was very scary but she
loved me.
?She exorcised me twice with holy
water, literally. The more holy water
she threw at me, the more
ridiculous I thought it was.?
Before young Guillermo
had started school, dad
Federico won the Mexican
national lottery, using the
money to build a successful car dealership.
They lived in a modern white mansion and,
aged eight, Guillermo
started
making
short
films using his father?s
camera
?
and
his
mother?s acting talents.
In one he made
her dress as a foetus
and
in
another she was
murdered by a
serial
killer
POTATO.

on weight as he sought to stand up
to the bullies who mocked his
unusual interests.
He later studied cinematography
at university and worked as a
cleaner in a mental hospital,
where he would take his lunch
breaks in the morgue.
After
spending
a
decade
working in film special effects
and make-up, Guillermo was
given �million by Bob and
Harvey Weinstein?s Miramax
Films to shoot sci-fi horror
Mimic in 1997.
He
described
working with the

with. During production, his

said: ?Buying a man?s

a
?It
? was a very changing experience.
y relationship with my dad is much
ore
human now. What changes is
o
you go from being a son to being a
man saving a man.?
It was not the first time he had
experienced violence in his homeland,
where drug wars rage. He once said:
?I?ve seen people being shot. I?ve had
guns put to my head. I?ve seen people burnt alive, stabbed, decapitated.?
Fearing for their future safety,
particularly as the kidnappers were
not
caught,
Guillermo
and
his
parents moved to the US.
There, he made 2001?s The Devil?s
Backbone, about a haunted school,
but he turned down the chance to
direct 2004?s Harry Potter And The
Prisoner Of Azkaban.
While he has since spoken of his
regret at turning the Potter producers
down ? ?I lay there and go, ?Oh f***??
? he went on to make Hellboy, Pan?s
Labyrinth and Pacific Rim, banking
more than $1billion (�6million) at
the box office worldwide.
Guillermo owns homes in Toronto,
Canada, and three in LA, two of
which have been joined together to
form his ?man cave?, where he stores
his massive collection of curiosities.
Three years ago he turned the odd
items into an exhibition, saying: ?You
find throughout the house very strange
marine biology specimens, Fiji mermaids, octopus tentacles, skeletons
and skulls and complete specimens of
birds and malformed children.?
The walls are covered in posters,
there is memorabilia from horror
movies and more than 7,000 DVDs in
his private screening room.
?Love is the solution
to everything?
Nicknamed Bleak House, it is
another source of inspiration for the
elaborate, imagined worlds that feature
in movies such as The Shape Of
Water, which is in cinemas now.
Down the road is his family home,
where until last year he lived with
wife Lorenza Newton and their two
daughters, Mariana and Marisa.
He has reportedly split from Lorenza after 31 years together. They
met at university. Despite all his odd
and harrowing experiences, Guillermo remains upbeat.
The Shape Of Water is a love story,
which reflects his lack of cynicism.
Set in 1962, at the height of the
Cold War, Sally?s character Elisa
risks everything to save a beguiling,
river-dwelling creature from ignorant
government forces.
Guillermo said: ?If I tell you, ?I?m
53 and I?ve come to the conclusion
that love is the solution to everything?, you go, ?Guillermo, please?. But
I do believe that.
?I?m not a Teletubby. I don?t mean
that we?re going to go throwing
flowers
everywhere
and
kissing
everybody. It?s not that.
?It?s about choosing between fear
and love or understanding.?
That is probably why he is the
bookies? choice to win Best Director
on Sunday, having already picked up
that title at the Golden Globes and
Baftas, and why he could sneak Best
Picture ahead of the more hardnosed
Three
Billboards
Outside
Ebbing, Missouri. Historically, the
Academy prefers an uplifting tale.
Guillermo said of his multiple nominations: ?Thirteen is a great number
now and it?s happened to the best
movie of mine, that I love. It?s a good
club to belong to.
?This journey started at the end of
2011 and it?s been a long one. It has
been a difficult one.
?With a movie that combines so
many genres emotionally, none of
these things were easy or safe. To get
here is all the more sweet.?
On his Best Director nod, he said it
was like being invited to ?the greatest prom night in the world?.
He added: ?It is a great honour and
joy to be here, today, with a picture
that remains faithful to all my
convictions and the images I have
loved since infancy.?
No matter how much his stories
seem to come from another world,
whether towering robots in Pacific
Rim or hero demons in Hellboy, they
are rooted in his life.
And there are undoubtedly a few
more to come.

Swansea City v Sheffield
Wednesday. Kick-off at 8.05.
Coverage of the fifth-round replay,
which takes place at Liberty
Stadium. The original tie at
Hillsborough ended in 0-0 draw,
meaning the Swans face a third
consecutive replay in this
season?s competition, having also
needed two attempts to progress
past Wolverhampton Wanderers
and Notts County respectively,
though a repeat of the 8-1
shellacking they bestowed on the
Magpies in round four seems
unlikely. The winner of this tie
does have the added incentive of
knowing should they claim victory
here and move on to the sixth
round, they will earn a home tie
against the winners of tomorrow

SURANNE JONES says a
third series of Doctor Foster
is hanging in the balance
because she is so busy.
The actress, currently starring
in taut drama Frozen in the West
End and on screen in Save Me on
Sky Atlantic, said she can?t
commit to another outing of the
BBC show as Gemma, below.
Asked if there would be a third
run, she said: ?I don?t know. It?s a
timing issue.?
The last series ended with
Gemma and warring ex Simon,
played by BERTIE CARVEL,
looking for their missing son Tom.
Suranne appeared on This
Morning yesterday, left, and when
asked by host PHILLIP
SCHOFIELD where Tom
had gone, she joked
he?s probably on a gap
year. She said: ?He?ll be
travelling somewhere,
he?ll be fine for a
couple of years.
Would you want
him to come
back to these
parents??
She has a
point.

Bethany Platt has been

upcoming storyline.
Her rapist ex-boyfriend
Nathan Curtis, who groomed
her for months, will attempt to
appeal his sentence he
received in October.
It leaves Beth, played by
LUCY FALLON, devastated by
the thought of coming face-toface with her abuser again.
Luckily for her, his efforts
are unsuccessful and she is
not forced to go to court again
over her horrific ordeal.
But the lapdancer then finds
herself facing jail herself.
While at work at the club,
she suffers a flashback to the
abuse she suffered, lashing
out and glassing a man on a
stag do who reminds her of
Nathan.
She is arrested and told by
cops that a prison sentence is
a likely prospect.

DOGGED ALAN?S
SOAP HOLLY-DAY
ALAN CARR?s television
career so far has involved him
getting mildly sozzled late at

and a giggle with celebrity
guests.
But there will be no booze
on set when the comedian
trades his Chatty Man talk
show sofa for soapland.
Alan has bagged himself a
role on Channel 4?s Hollyoaks
and filmed his cameo scenes
in Liverpool yesterday.
But his trip to the North
West isn?t going to be a permanent one
and certainly won?t
be winning
awards anytime soon.

will be a

walking his

and

TV source said: ?Fans will get
the chance to see Alan strut
his stuff in the famous village
later this year.
?His dogs, Joyce and
Bev, will also appear in his
episode.
?But you?ll have to work
hard to spot him.?
Alan was happy to pose for
pictures with his pet pooches,

BRITAIN?S Got Talent viewers were left in tears last

But the impact of their

I?m told a former homeless
woman, who is one of the stars
of this series, was inspired to
return to her loved ones after
hearing about the choir.

on the programme in
2009. A show source said: ?No
one expected such an amazing

ALESHA DIXON and AMANDA

?It?s set to be one of the
stand-out moments of the series.
The audience were in bits.
?The audition is a real Susan
Boyle-type moment.?
During Ju?s audition, she tells
Simon, below with his fellow
judges, how she walked
out on her family after her mum
died and descended into depression, feeling ?very broken?.
But Ju says that once she
heard about the Missing People
Choir, made up of relatives
searching for their loved ones,
she realised she had to go back.
She said: ?I was unwell. I
heard about the Missing People
Choir and they gave me the
hope and knowledge that there
were people there who could
help pull me back.
?I?m here to say you

An emotional Simon
told Ju he was ?thrilled?
by her turnaround, adding: ?What the choir did

My boss keeps
me on the job
Dear Deidre
I HAVE been having the
most amazing sex with my
boss for almost all of the
six months I have been in
my new job.
The problem is that it is all
totally secret and it doesn?t look as
though that will ever change.
I am a man of 26. I have never
worked for a woman before so
when I landed my new job I was
quite nervous about how it was
going to work out.
It turns out I need not have
worried.
The
head
of
the
department
was
a
charming,
considerate woman who I now
know is 44.
She could not have been more
helpful or more encouraging, so I
relaxed and thought everything
was going to be fine.
One afternoon she called me into
her office and said how pleased
she was with my work so far.
She suggested we stay on after
everyone had gone home to work
on some new promotional ideas
she had been thinking about.
I agreed, feeling quite pleased
that I had been singled out. That

evening we talked for half an hour
or so but then she locked the
door, came over to me and gave
me a long, lingering kiss. I was
gobsmacked.
I was even more taken aback
when she started to unzip my
trousers and feel around. I should
not have responded but I did.
I?d recently split up with my
girlfriend and was feeling very
sex-starved at the time, so the
intimate
physical
contact
felt
wonderful. We had sex ? slow and
satisfying, which is how she said
she liked it. She didn?t mention it

I?M CHANNELLING MY
INNER BINGO MASTER
in the office the next day but the
following week, she asked if I was
up for another of ?our weekly
sessions?, as she put it. And this is
how it has continued.
She never wants to see me
outside work but once every week
I stay late in the office.
We
make
ourselves
as
comfortable as we can and she
keeps a sleeping bag in the
cupboard for us to lie on.
What I would like to know is
where it is all leading but I don?t
want to put my job at risk.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: She can?t sack you
for asking where this is going, though
there could well be a chilly atmosphere
if you end it brutally.
If she never wants to see you outside
of work, that suggests she already has
a relationship and she?s basically
using you. You welcomed the sexual
contact at first but if this goes on, it will
get in the way of developing a loving
relationship of your own.
Tell your boss it has been wonderful
and that you value your job very much,
but you realise you?re ready now for
something more than just sex.
Have activities planned outside
work to keep you busy and make sure
you leave the office promptly so you
don?t hang around looking available.
Dear Deidre
WE found out yesterday my
granddad has got prostate
cancer. It was a big shock.
He is 79 but has always
seemed healthy and full of life.
We are a small, close family
and I always spent a lot of time
with my grandparents when I
was growing up because my
parents worked long hours.
I am a girl of 22 and I am
devastated. I can?t stop crying
and I don?t know how I can
carry on if I lose him. He is a
big part of my life.
Dear Deidre
FOR a whole month, I have not
been able to have sex a
second time right away with
my girlfriend. I can only go
once and I don?t last long.
My girlfriend and I met a
year and a half ago. She is 23,
I am 22.
Everything was going great.
Then I noticed this change.
I told her I was worried but
she said I shouldn?t be
because everything is fine.
The first time it happened, I
tried to put it out of my mind
0 DEIDRE SAYS: I get your
shock but this type of cancer
is not necessarily lifethreatening. Spend as much
time as you can with your
granddad and tell him how
much you love him. Focus on
doing fun things together
while he waits for a more
detailed diagnosis.

as a blip, maybe from
tiredness. The second and
third times I failed to get a
second erection, I panicked.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: What you
describe as a blip is pretty
normal, but worrying about it
will itself block responses.
Hear your girlfriend when
she says it?s all fine from her
point of view. Make sure
intercourse is one course in
a varied sexual feast.
Above all, stop worrying ?

therapy in my e-leaflet, How

KIRSTY?S LOST LOVE: DAY 2
I?M SHOOTING
OFF, MATE. GIVE
US A RING
Dear Deidre
MY partner told me her ex
was her ?friend with benefits?
for a while after they split up.
It happened before we met
but I was so upset about it
that I joined Tinder. I
exchanged some messages
with people but they weren?t
sexual and I didn?t meet up
with anyone.
When my partner found
out, she accused me of
cheating. I denied it but she
said she needed time alone.
I went round to see her and
found her ex?s bank card on
the bedside table. I went
ballistic. She admitted they
had got drunk together but
said nothing happened.
It made me realise I wanted
to be with her so we got back
together again.
We are both 27. She still
accuses me of cheating on a
daily basis. I don?t even go on
social media now because it
isn?t worth the hassle.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You both
need to trust one another if
you want to stay together
and be happy. Otherwise,
you will be locked into
destructive tit-for-tat rows.
Agree to talk everything
over if you feel threatened
and ask for a hug instead of
hurling accusations.

I feel like a single parent.
We have been married for

all the time.
He?d rather play computer

with the kids. We never go
out as a family.
I am 33 but I feel life is
passing me by. I have lost
any loving feelings for him
and can?t remember the last
time we had sex. Should I
divorce him?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Talk first.
Find a time when the boys
are in bed and you won?t be
interrupted. Say how
unhappy you are and how
damaging it is for your
sons. Make sure he sees
divorce is on the cards.
Don?t just demand he?s
more helpful generally.
Have a detailed list ready of
exactly what you need him
to do each day if your
relationship is to survive.
Write down what you do,
so he understands he?d just
be shouldering his share.

THREE SPECIAL DOGS UP
THOUSANDS of pooches head
for Crufts next month but pure-bred
beasts are not the only dogs off to the
arena this year.
Five very special pets have been
shortlisted for the Crufts Friend For Life
Award in recognition of the help they
give their owners.
Each dog has already won its
category and will go head-to-head
with the others to be crowned the
overall winner.
Here, EMMA COX meets three of the
owners and hears all about their
amazing animals.
lCrufts is at the NEC Birmingham, March 8-11. Follow
the action and highlights on Channel 4 and More 4.
For further information and tickets see crufts.org.uk.
(Serves four)
YOU NEED:
4 portobello mushrooms
1 tsp olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
4 medium eggs
4 tbsp mozzarella, grated
3 tbsp parmesan, finely grated
For the salsa:
2 avocados, cubed
3-4 medium tomatoes,
deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
Fresh coriander, chopped
1-2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
Chives, chopped
METHOD: Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/
Gas Mark 4. Line a baking tray with
parchment paper and clean the mushrooms.
Carefully cut out the stalk from each then
use a teaspoon to scoop out the gills.
Place them on the baking tray, drizzle with
olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, crack each egg into a
mushroom cap. Sprinkle a little more salt
over the egg, then add 1 tbsp of mozzarella
around the white of each egg.
Scatter with parmesan, leaving some of
the yolk exposed. Bake in the preheated
oven on the centre shelf for 14-15 minutes.
To make the avocado salsa, mix the cubed
avocado and tomato and season with sea
salt, black pepper, olive oil, chopped
coriander and sweet chilli sauce.
Remove the baked eggs from oven. Allow
to set for three minutes.
Scatter the avocado and tomato salsa
over the baked eggs and garnish with
chopped chives then serve.

Since Waffle arrived more than five
years ago, life has changed beyond
recognition for Sarah, who has been
profoundly deaf since birth as a result
of a viral infection.
Sapedeh says: ?I knew about guide
dogs for the blind but I?d never heard
of hearing dogs.
?Once I started looking into them, I
thought, ?OK, we need one of these?.
We had never really had much
interest in dogs so it was a big
lifestyle change but we all absolutely
love Waffle.
?She bonded with Sarah so quickly.
Within a couple of months,
everything she owned had a dog
pattern on it. She adores her.
?And Waffle loves Sarah, too. She
sits at the front door 20 minutes
before Sarah is due home for school.
?She?s better than a clock. Waffle
has really changed Sarah?s life.?
Tasks that Waffle carries out for
Sarah include waking her up in the
morning and alerting her to any fire or
smoke alarms.
Sarah sleeps in her own bed for the
first time, too.
Before, she was too scared of the
silence to sleep alone but now, with

VANESSA?S bond with her dog is
stronger than most ? because she
credits him with saving her life
several times. She suffers from
anorexia and complex mental
health problems, including posttraumatic stress disorder, but
since Jack came into her life, her
health has improved hugely.
She says: ?I owe my life to this dog.
There wouldn?t have been a reason
for carrying on otherwise. I can?t say
Jack has given me a miracle cure
because I find it an incredible
challenge to eat, but I do the best I
can because of him. He?s the
reason I strive to get better.
?Jack is an extraordinary dog.
He has enabled me to do things I
never thought I?d be able to do.?
Vanessa, 47, decided to look for
a rescue pet after realising seeing
dogs in the park made her happy.
She says: ?I noticed that even if I was
feeling very distressed, I could see a
dog and it would make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.?
With the help of the charity Border Terrier Welfare UK, she
found Jack, who was 13 months old and had had three
different homes. Vanessa worked hard to help him
overcome some behavioural problems, and together the
pair both healed. Jack is now nearing the end of
his training as an assistance dog, learning
jobs like emptying the washing machine,
getting Vanessa?s medication and sitting
on her lap for comfort if she is panicky.
She says: ?When I met Jack it was love
at first sight. I used to dread taking him
to training classes, as I found the
social aspect terrifying. But we
powered through it. Due to the
classes, I now have a group of
friends ? having always found it
hard to interact with people.
Jack has had a profound effect
on my emotional development.
I love and feel loved for the first
time in my life.?

TREK TO ALP

contests help our confidence 7
Dog: Buttons the shih tzu.
Owner: Hannah Gates, 19, from Hazlemere,
Bucks.
WINNER:
MAN?S
BEST
FRIEND
AWARD
WHEN Hannah nearly died from a stomach
condition, she found it hard to bounce back.
She spent weeks curled up on the sofa
after doctors diagnosed her with ulcerative
colitis during a two-week stay in a highdependency unit.
Unmotivated and putting on weight because
of steroid medication, she was despairing ? until
doctors insisted she started exercising.
Hating the gym, Hannah hit on the idea of
doing some dog agility with her pet Buttons.
Now the pair compete regularly ? and Hannah?s
weight has dropped from 11st to 9st 3lb. She has
also made a brand new group of friends.
Hannah says: ?I was very ill. They didn?t give too
high a percentage of survival or recovery when I
was in hospital but I did get through it.
?When I got home, I had a lot of muscle
wastage in my legs from lying so still and I
couldn?t walk for long, so I camped out on the
sofa and watched telly for days on end with
Buttons next to me.
?I was taking eight steroids a day, along with
various other drugs, and I was eating absolutely
loads so I put on quite a lot of weight. It wasn?t
healthy and my mental health wasn?t good
either.
?I knew that I had to do something but I?m not
sporty so I didn?t want to go to the gym or run.
?My mum and I came up with the idea of dog
agility and Buttons and I took to it instantly.?
The duo have now been doing it for three
years and take part in competitions across the
South West. She says: ?Buttons races with me
around the course.
?I love watching her having a wonderful time.
?She?s quite laid back normally but when she
does agility she?s completely different. She
comes out of herself. We can both be quite shy
but it?s helped us build confidence together.
?A lot of friends didn?t really stick around once
I got ill because I was in and out of hospital all
the time.
?But I?ve met loads of lovely people through
the agility.?
Hannah still has flare-ups of her condition,
which is similar to Crohn?s disease and causes
excruciating pain and diarrhoea.
She says: ?Buttons will sit quietly with me
when I?m not well. She?s an angel.
?I would be in a really poor place if it wasn?t for
her. She?s a very special dog.?
I AM thrilled to say this is my 200th
column. It means I have written many,
MANY words about me and my life for
almost four years, and hopefully along
the way educated you about someone
living with cancer.
Not to mention made you check your
boobs ? which I hope you now all do,
feeling very comfortable noticing any
changes, yes? GOOD.
It?s not always easy to make my life
sound exciting and newsworthy. But
when I feel particularly deflated, I
remember it is often the little things
that are most important.
I have loved writing this column. It is
a sort of therapy and I am grateful you
continue to read my musings.
A lot has happened over these 200
columns and what I love most is
sharing exiting news with you ? and
that is what I am doing today.
This week we have launched our
next Fabulous Challenge ? this time
we are headed to the Transylvanian
Alps. Yup, like the Dracula in Sesame
Street, you could be heading to
Romania to trek more than 40 miles
over six days, climbing to 2,400
metres above sea level. It is not called
a challenge for nothing ? and raise a
whole load of wonga for CoppaFeel!
Since we started the Fabulous
Challenge four years ago, our trekkers
have shared their stories with hundreds
of thousands of people through
Fabulous magazine and raised more
than �0,000 for our charity.
Aside from the warm, fuzzy feeling
you will get from helping us do
something epic, you will also have the
chance to explore some of the world?s
most scenic locations.
From climbing Machu Picchu and
tackling the Great Wall of China, to
traversing the glacial plains of Iceland
(the trip I was so lucky to join) and
trekking the Arabic fjords of Oman, the
Fabulous Challenge is a chance to do
something out of your comfort zone.
Better still, this year?s trip will be
headed up by team captains Tom
Fletcher ? he of McFly fame and a gem
of a human being ? and lovely Lisa
Snowdon. Tom?s wife Giovanna, who
took part in last year?s adventure, is
the ambassador of the Fabulous
Challenges which means she gets to
bully celebrities into joining the treks.
Not to mention spread a load of boob
love. And for all that I adore her.
So today, I am proud of this column
and the support we get from Fabulous
through the challenges. We do save
lives and that ain?t possible without
the help of some awesome people.
Now, be an awesome person too ? join
the trek (or just check your boobs).
See coppafeel.org/fabulous to
learn more.
Just coppafeel and look
out for the following...
LOOK for changes
in skin texture
such as puckering
LOOK for swelling
in your armpit or
around collarbone
FEEL for lumps
and thickening
LOOK for constant
pain in your

LOOK for change

remain in a customs union.
�
LETTER
Freeing ourselves of the stifling
and overbearing EU rules and
regulations is paramount.
Just because some Labour MPs
lack confidence in a free-trading
Britain, they want to put us in a
position whereby we couldn?t set
up free trade deals with the rest
of the world.
As The Sun said, the global
market IS the Brexit prize.
Theresa May must never give
up on winning it.
JANE FISHER
Newcastle upon Tyne
WHAT is Jeremy Corbyn playing
at? He clearly knows by committing to the EU customs union we
will be shackled by Brussels
rules. To say he?s ?ratting? on
Brexit is putting it mildly.
We voted democratically to
leave the EU. If Corbyn hopes to
push a vote of ?no confidence?
over the Government?s Brexit
deal, God help us, because nothing else will.
JACK AMER
Gorleston, Norfolk
SURELY we can?t have a hokeycokey type of deal with the EU.
One foot in and one foot out. We
either have our whole selves in or
our whole selves out. Our whole
selves in is a restrictive fence.
Our whole selves out is freedom.
I know which I prefer.

I CAN?T believe the cheek of
Wayne Rooney. He hires ?experts?
to help him mitigate his tax
obligations, then is said to be
furious that it has backfired in
spectacular fashion.
If anybody has the right to be
furious it?s the public ? who are
paying tax on the most modest of
incomes.
DEAN BUCHANAN
Nottingham
OH, how I feel sorry for poor
Wayne Rooney, who is paid a
gross amount to kick a ball.
He, like many others, as well as
highly paid businessmen, actors
and newsreaders, are very keen to
avoid paying ?too much? tax on
their incomes. If everybody paid
a correct amount the NHS, for
example, could be a lot better off.

JEREMY CORBYN and his frontbench team have, in one unwise

JOHN SMEDLEY
Willenhall, West Mids
I SEE once again Tony Blair is
doing his best to try and ruin
Brexit. Why would anyone take
any notice of what this man says?
The
original
vote
in
the
Seventies was for a Common
Market which he and various
THEY were warned but refused
to listen. Now the Big Six energy
firms are to be forced to end
their variable tariff rip-off which
has been raking in millions for
the greedy lot.
They arrogantly ignored Theresa
May?s threat of legislation that
would make them toe the line. To
Mrs May ? and The Sun?s ?
credit, a cap on energy bills will
soon be law.
Millions of put-upon consumers
will be delighted. Yet again a Sun
campaign has come up trumps.
ADAM IRVING
Newcastle upon Tyne
COULD it be that my energy

Instead of letting unfinished projects clutter your life, you
have the ruthlessness you need to pick the best and ditch the
rest. There?s something about you that makes people spill
their secrets and ask for advice ? give it cautiously. The moon
in your heart chart adds bold action to love plans.
Your mind is on maximum power and your nerves are steady,
so you can do your best in a test. In family life, you are a rock
for others but sometimes you need to be kinder to yourself. In
romance, you both say you are friends but everyone else is
wondering why it has taken you so long to get together.
You get smart with your heart and however attractive you find
someone, other factors such as friendship and trust have to
be there for you to start a relationship. At work, you can turn
chaos into calm, and wildly creative ideas into simpler, more
practical ones. Luck will visit a building reached by 14 steps.
A relationship that is warm and supportive one moment and
icily indifferent the next can become one that is always there
for you. And the secret is in small gestures of affection. Mars
stirs action in your job chart, making you strong and
competitive. The luckiest contest for pals is linked to travel.
Change planet Pluto crosses your job chart and you take a far
wider view of the kind of ways you could earn a living. Then
you could benefit from unusual changes in the workplace.
As for new love, Mars brings an athletic dancer into your
life. Couples can win when they chase prizes as a duo.
It can seem you are taking too long to check every detail at
work or when doing some big-money buying, but your
attention to detail is what makes you a winner. In love, it is
important to be spontaneous and when you meet someone
you really like, let it show or even propose to a partner.
Pluto, planet of the unexpected, shows a link between love
and a new place to live ? perhaps moving in together for the
first time. Single? When you view a property with unusual
extras, its owner could be your perfect passion partner. Jobwise, a task that gets publicity brings out the genius in you.
You have heard a love promise before, but this time you sense
it will be kept. Friends may say you are too forgiving but trying
again makes you sure. As Mars lights your cash chart, you
can stay strong about how much you should be paid, which
wins you respect. Five work pals could share a winning ticket.
Even if you are not the studious type, an opportunity to learn
more about using your voice will give you the edge at work.
Single? Someone whose voice you already enjoy hearing
enters your life, and the attraction is mutual. Already in love?
A partner needs to know your heart is still in the relationship.
Looks, lifestyle and status can all change as Pluto gets busy
in your sign. Pals who lost touch make contact and one who
has achieved a lot in Australia inspires you. The moon stirs up
a surprise in your passion zone and even after a gap of five
years or so, meeting an ex shows the excitement is still there.
Venus and Mercury compete in your chart, prompting you to
choose between a job that pays more and one that makes you
feel proud. Romantically, the choice is between a secure love
with someone who gets along with your family and a more
passionate partner who is a constant challenge.
You understand others so well, knowing when to praise and
when to push them to work harder, giving them confidence to
fulfil their dreams. But now comes the harder task of being
your own life coach and achieving your most precious
ambitions. In passion terms, you can win the heart you want.

LOAN LIFT
FOR HOME
BUYERS
THE housing market
showed signs of a bounceback in January with a
first rise in mortgage
approvals for four months.
Lending hit almost
�billion last month as
borrowers rushed to lock
in deals ahead of any
interest rate hike.
Home loans overall were
up by almost two per cent,
according to figures from
the BRITISH BANKERS
ASSOCIATION.
The BBA said its
members approved 44,259
home loans in January.
This latest data is likely
to calm nerves after
mortgage lending slumped
to 36,085 in December.
But economists warn the
rise could be just a blip.
Samuel Tombs, of
PANTHEON
MACROECONMICS, was
?reluctant? to call it
business as usual. He said:
?Other indicators also
suggest that demand is
weakening.?
Inquiries from new
buyers fell for the 10th
month running in January,
the Royal Institute of
Chartered Surveyors says.
Credit card spending was
up by nearly six per cent
in January. But lenders
revealed consumers were
paying down more debt.

HIGHEST EVER SALES
FOR ASTON MARTIN
Vroom
boom
By STEPHEN BOUVIER
ASTON Martin has reported its
highest ever sales figures, up
by almost half to �6million
to the end of last year.
THE New York film studio
founded by shamed movie
mogul Harvey Weinstein is
to file for bankruptcy.
According to reports in
the US, talks to sell off
the Weinstein Company?s
assets have fallen through.
The board said in a
statement that talks had
ended without a signed
agreement.
It added that ?an orderly
bankruptcy process? was
the ?only viable option to
maximise the company?s
remaining value?.
The firm was behind hit
movies such as Django
Unchained and The King?s
Speech. Weinstein denies
dozens of allegations of
sexual abuse.
Pre-tax profits at the luxury car
maker rose �0million to hit
�million, reversing a pre-tax
loss of �3million last year.
Dr Andy Palmer, the company?s chief
executive, told The Sun: ?The numbers
speak for themselves ? we had a
standout year.
?All I can say is that the turnaround
is done. We are all about growth.?
The
Midlands-based
company
launched the DB11 Volante last year
and the roadster is tipped to account
for roughly 40 per cent of Aston Martin
sales around the world.
This April sees the launch of the new
Vantage, which Dr Palmer said is
aimed at the volume market.
A replacement for the Vanquish will
follow in September and an SUV is
tipped for next year.
Mark Wilson, the firm?s finance
boss, insisted he was upbeat
about the market for luxury
vehicles ? despite fears for the
health of the global economy.
He said: ?Overall, the market
has continued to expand.?
And he singled out the Asia
Pacific region and China as real
drivers of growth in the sector.
He added: ?If you look at the

It described 2017 as a

Massive claims following
three major hurricanes in
the US and Caribbean,
earthquakes in Mexico and
wildfires in California have
all left insurers reeling.
Chairman Robert Childs

Buttler?s
Test dream
GOING BIG . . .
Buttler is aiming
for a Test recall
From JOHN
ETHERIDGE
JOS BUTTLER is
one of the world?s
top white ball stars
? but he wants his
Test place back.
The England wicketkeeper has no plans
to follow Alex Hales
and Adil Rashid by
ending
his
five-day
career to focus on T20
and 50-over cricket.
Buttler faces a tough
task to dislodge Jonny
Bairstow from behind
the stumps in the
England Test team.
But he is targeting
runs in a cluster of
County Championship
games for Lancashire
to press his claims ?
maybe as an out-andout batsman.
When asked whether
he had ever considered
?defecting?, Buttler, 27,
said: ?Yes, sometimes.
But I?m very happy
with my situation at
the minute.
?I haven?t played a
great deal of red ball
cricket recently but
I still have Test
ambitions.
?I?ll be available
for
quite
a
lot
of
cham
pionship
cricket
towards the
end of the summer, so that?s when
I need to score runs.?
Buttler
scored
85
and 70 in his first two
Test innings against
India in 2014. But his
performances
tailed
off so alarmingly he was
dropped
in
2015.
He
added:
?Maybe
it
would hurt if I
never
played
another Test but
I don?t want to
have too many
regrets.
?I?m very fortunate
to
have
played Test cricket
at all.
?One
thing
you?d want out
of a Test career
would be to win
an Ashes series
in England.
?Not that I performed very well,
but
I?m
lucky
enough
to
have
done that.
?You?re always desperate to do as well
as you can and fulfil
your
promise
and
potential. But I won?t
lose any sleep over it.?
Ben Stokes plays the
second game of his
comeback in tonight?s
second
one-dayer
against New Zealand,
starting at 1am UK
time.
Buttler
said:
?It?s
fantastic to have him
back. His infectious
personality rubs off on
people.?
South Africa pace
man MORNE MORKEL,
33, announced he will
quit
international
cricket after the fourTest

Scot Hendry, however, strongly
disagreed.

to make a case for him not

SANDFRANKSKIPSGO (2.00 Lingfield) is worth one last
chance. He is a whopping 20lb lower in the handicap than
this time last year. Have an e-w double with consistent
TIGERFISH (2.45 Chelmsford). She is still fairly treated.
HARRIET FULLER
reports from Closutton
have got a prep into Douvan but ran out of options
due to the bad ground.
Mullins said: ?It?s a worry
he hasn?t had a run but
we?ve got to live with it.?
Douvan was unbeaten in
13 runs for Mullins before
his shocker last year.
Altior has won his last
12 and made a good return
from a wind op when outclassing Politologue at
Newbury on February 10.
Mullins said: ?The clash
with Altior should be exciting and I just hope I can
get Douvan back into the
form he was in last year.
?Altior looked fantastic
when he won at Newbury
and it should be a race to
savour if we get there.?

H yes
CAN he win it? . . .
he Can. CANFORD THOMPSON (4.45
Chelmsford, nap) was
unlucky not to win at
Wolverhampton
last
time out. He was finishing like a train from a
bad draw only to be
knocked sideways entering the final furlong.
This race is softer and a
1lb rise in the weights is
more than fair.
SMILEY BAGEL (4.00
Lingfield, nb) relished every yard of the
1m4f when scoring here
last time and this extra
distance looks ideal. He
still looks well handicapped and won?t be far
away.
GALA CELEBRATION
(3.15 Chelmsford,
treble) ran his best race
for a long time on his
debut for Ian Williams
here last time. He looks
hard to beat today.

Flying in on Big Air, Bill?
ALONSO . . . crash
Alonso?s
test blow
From BEN HUNT
FERNANDO ALONSO had a
high-speed crash on the
first day of winter testing
in Barcelona.
The Spaniard?s McLaren
ended up in a gravel trap
when his car lost a rear
wheel at 130mph.
But Alonso, 36, played
down the incident.
He said: ?When it happened, I thought it was a
good day for you guys.
?This is a small problem
but a good photo for you
? the car in the gravel
and us with a wheel-nut.
?When it was fixed the
team just told me to get
back in the car but it
won?t be a big handicap.?
It was a bad start for
Woking-based
McLaren,
who had targeted a haul
of 100 laps per day at the
Circuit de Catalunya.
Alonso
returned
to
complete 49 laps using
McLaren?s new Renault
engine after three miserable years with Honda.
He added: ?So far so
good. It?s early days but
the car was running fine.?
Daniel Ricciardo?s Red
Bull topped the timesheets for day one.
PIQUE . . . proposal
Pique?s
cup plan
By DAN KING
TENNIS is planning to
have its own World Cup.
The event replaces the
Davis Cup in a �illion
revamp backed by Barcelona?s Gerard Pique.
From as soon as
next year, the plan is
to stage a one-week,
18-nation World Cup
of Tennis Finals at
the end of the season to decide the
winners of the trophy lifted by Andy
Murray and Great
Britain in 2015.
The
International
Tennis Federation revealed
proposals for a 25-year
partnership worth more
than �n with Kosmos,
the investment company
founded and fronted by
Barca defender Pique.
He said: ?Kosmos is
thrilled to join in this
partnership with the ITF.
?Together we can elevate the Davis Cup to new
heights by putting on a
must-see World Cup of
Tennis Finals.?
But, first, the ITF need a
two-thirds
majority
at
August?s AGM in Orlando to
get the go-ahead.

The snowboarder?s bronze in the

Lizzy Yarnold (below) won a

Robertson said: ?We were confident we were sending out the
best-prepared team to have left
these shores for a Winter Games.
?Thanks to the efforts of Lizzy
and others, we have come
home after our most successful Winter Games. That is a
fantastic result.

him seem like a murderer.
The

biting Robbie Farah of

On the day of his

Aussie TV reporter even
said: ?Believe it or not,

But
it
took
just
THREE MINUTES to clear
McGillvary of the charge.
He said: ?It was funny

as if I had
murdered
someone!
?But then
after
I
knew I was going to get
time to defend myself, I
wasn?t too bothered.?
Now the Huddersfield
ace, 29, has his sights set
on landing a major trophy
at club level ahead of
Friday?s
Super
League
clash with Wakefield.
However,
the
Giants
have won only one of their
first three league games.
McGillvary added: ?Now
I really have a taste for

?I?ve not actually won
many trophies, only the

Groves in
final hope
By SIMON SHAW
GEORGE GROVES is still

final after having surgery

WBA super-middleweight
champ Groves, 29, went
under the knife yesterday.
He said he was confident
organisers will agree to
push back his all-British
final against Callum Smith
from June 2 to July ? so
he has time to recover.
Saint George picked up
the injury beating Chris
Eubank Jnr in the WBSS
semi-finals in Manchester.
He said yesterday: ?This
morning I go in for a
minor operation on my
injured shoulder.
?The good news is I?ll
be fit to fight for the final
in July. We will be applying
for a one-month extension
and
are
hopeful
of
securing this.?
If not, organisers will
find an alternative opponent for Smith, who beat
Nieky Holzken in his semifinal last Saturday.
Eubank Jnr and James
DeGale will both be considered as replacements.

KEITH HILL would rather
be a working-class hero
than a Wembley one.
So he will wear his flat

night?s FA Cup fifth-round
replay with Tottenham.
His Rochdale side, who
are bottom of League
One, are busy preparing for the biggest
game of their lives.
And Bolton?born Hill,

Hill. I don?t want to be
an imitation of anybody.
?I learn, I listen, I
watch and I eulogise over
managers but I don?t
want to be a charlatan.
?I?m Keith Hill and if I
want to wear a flat cap
on the side of the pitch
it?s because it?s me and
I?m representing me and
my family and our
values.
?I see so many
managers whispering
behind their hands,
not being real. I just
want to be myself and I
want my players to be comfortable in my company.
?I come with a beard,
with a flat cap. I wouldn?t

chance of beating Spurs
or anything.?

Pochettino wants them

Villas-Boas,
speaking
ahead of tonight?s Laureus
World
Sports
Awards,
risked further blackening
his reputation with Spurs
fans as he said: ?It
depends on Harry and his
ambitions for the future.
?If he has a hunger for
trophies and for notoriety
he would have to leave.
?If he has no hunger for
that, but wants recognition and stability, he
would stay at Spurs.?
But
at
a
meeting
between the board and
the Tottenham Hotspur
Supporters Trust, when
the past sales of Luka
Modric and Gareth Bale
were raised by fans, Levy
said: ?This is a different
club now.
?Mauricio is the best
manager in all the time I
have been at Tottenham.
?We see eye to eye in
terms of strategy. No
player will be sold that
Mauricio wants to stay.?
Spurs are also poised
to offer �0,000-a-week
Kane, 24, a huge pay rise
to help secure his future.
Yet Bernabeu advisor
Raul insisted: ?Kane is
one of the best strikers in
the world ? why wouldn?t

By CHARLIE WYETT
ERIC DIER has leapt to Dele
Alli?s defence after two England
legends put the boot into the
controversial Spurs star.
Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer
both accused Dele of diving against
Crystal Palace.
But Dier reckons that smacks of
double standards.
Dele fell to the ground after contact
from Patrick van Aanholt in Spurs?
1-0 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
In another incident he tumbled
over home keeper Wayne Hennessey.
Shearer tweeted ?a blatant dive?,
while Lineker branded the England
star ?Divey Alli?.
But Dier, defending his Tottenham
team-mate and close pal, hit back,
saying: ?I?m sure they probably both
dived in their careers.
?These things happen. Obviously,
because it?s Dele I think it probably
gets more attention than it deserves.?
Dele has been booked twice for
simulation this season but ref Kevin
Friend saw nothing wrong at Palace.
And Dier said: ?If you take the
action in the game against Liverpool,
where he got booked for diving, I
was right behind him.
?When he?s running towards the
ball, he?s taken a touch and it looks
like the guy is about to come and
take him out.
?There is a sense of, ?I need to get
I?m sure
these
two
probably
did it in their careers
DIVE FOR COVER . . . Dier rapped Shearer (left) and Lineker (right) for Dele claims
out of the way?. If he then goes and
stops, that?s a difficult situation.
?I don?t think he pays any attention
to it and I think that?s the most
important thing.
?All he needs to pay attention to is
how his team-mates feel and how the
manager sees him and how his family
see him. The rest really is irrelevant.
?One of the beautiful things about
football is everyone has an opinion,
but it doesn?t mean everyone?s opinion
is right.
?It?s difficult because nowadays with
Twitter and Instagram, and every
other social media outlet, everyone
has an opinion and you have to sift
through it to find the right one.
?That?s why I say for every footballer, myself included, we just need
to focus on the people that matter to
us ? the manager, our team-mates and
our family. I don?t think what anyone
else says should really bother us.?
Striker Harry Kane, who scored
Tottenham?s 88th-minute winner, also
backed Dele after his bust-up with
Van Aanholt.
Kane said: ?It was a heated game.
Dele wanted a penalty on one of the
fouls and it wasn?t given, and they
squared up. It?s football, there?s nothing malicious or anything like that.
?It?s hard when people watch football and they don?t really understand.
Sometimes players dive but sometimes you can?t get out of the way.
?When you get a reputation and
when it?s happened a couple of times,
the fans get on your back.
?But the ref is there to make a call
on the day and you?ve just got to go
with what he says.
?Sometimes you get a reputation
but that?s when we?ve got to trust the
refs. They can?t let that affect them
and I don?t think they do.
?The fans might jeer or boo every
time it happens but it?s down to the
ref to do his job and that?s all we
can count on.?

als for Belgium.
The
Manchester
United
striker?s goal in a 2-1 win
over
Chelsea
on
Sunday
made it 22 for the season.
As well as grabbing a fine
equaliser,
the
�million
frontman set up the winner
for Jesse Lingard.
Lukaku?s fourth goal in five
games may still not have
convinced everyone of his
talent ? but he aims to back
up his self-belief with some
silverware at Old Trafford.
The Belgian said: ?As long
as I win and I lead my team
to winning, that?s when I will
be really satisfied.
?A lot of big players that
we recognise today in the
game are players who have
won something and I want to
be part of them.
?I started playing when I
was 16. Year in, year out,
people expect 20 goals from
me.
?I?ve been doing it for
almost ten years straight so I
think I?ve proved myself.
?You expect a bit more
respect but it?s the situation
we?re in. I don?t listen to it.
?I just want to improve
and show the people what I
can do on the pitch.?
Lukaku turns 25 in May
and has already racked up
167 goals in 357 games for
Anderlecht, Chelsea, Everton,
They are impressive figures.
But his critics will point
out that Sunday?s goal was
his first against another team
in the top six since he joined
United last summer.
And
his
strike
came
against the club that had
been desperate to lure him
back to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea
were
convinced
they had won the tug of war
for the burly 6ft 2in Belgian,
only for him to head north to
the Theatre of Dreams.
Lukaku added: ?When I
make a choice, it?s with my
head and my heart. I made
the right choice for me. I?m
in a good situation.
?I?m with a manager and
players who push me every
day. The challenge is there to
win and it?s what I wanted.
?I think I have a nice
record. I?ve scored a lot this
season and I just want to
keep going.
?I know I can improve and
I want to improve and really
work hard.?
It is that work ethic that
makes him so important to
Jose Mourinho.
Even when he is not
scoring, Lukaku always puts
in a shift.
Mourinho was at pains to
highlight his frontman?s 90thminute lung-bursting run to
reach a long through ball as

he is doing it from the first
minute right up to that last
when we really needed him.
?He had the bit between
his teeth and that?s going to
breed confidence because he?s
on a run of goals.
?So long may that continue
because we?ve got some big
games.?
Those big games all come
at home following Monday?s
trip to Crystal Palace.
After that it is Liverpool in
the league, Sevilla in the
last-16, second leg of their
Champions League tie and
then Brighton in the FA Cup
quarter-finals.
The Cup is United?s best
chance of silverware this
season ? and they are determined to make sure only City
finish above them in the
Premier League.
Smalling
added:
?We?ve
been second for near enough
the whole season, so we?re
within our rights to make
sure we finish there.
?These are huge games and
the fact we play a lot of our
rivals at home is a big factor

It is understood the FA,
Premier League and Football League have reached

Bayern Munich are poised for a sixth straight Bundesliga crown and
Juventus could make it seven in a row in Italy?s Serie A.
But just two clubs have ever retained the Premier League title. And in the Prem

THAT?S YER LOTTI . . . Italian axed year later
Mourinho?s third Chelsea title was a masterclass in wringing the maximum from his
players. But the squad were drained,
physically and mentally and the Portuguese
coach was sacked before Christmas the
following season.
MAKE IT COUNT
From Back Page
goals has been a feature of this club for
many years now. So we can only say
that this team will be better
than the previous ones if we
can win the Premier League
then go again and again.
?I want to keep that hunger
in the team. So all I can say is
well done for what we have
done so far this season but we
have to keep going.?
City are currently 13 points
clear at the top of the Premier
League ? with a game in hand
? and need 18 points from their
remaining 11 games to be
certain of winning the title.
With the Carabao Cup in the
bag, Kompany is now targeting
Champions League success.
They look certainties for the
quarter-finals after crushing Basel
4-0 in the away leg of their
last-16 tie earlier this month.
And Kompany said: ?There is
belief that we can do well in
the Champions League but we
are not favourites above the big
clubs like Madrid and Barcelona.
?PSG are a great team but they?ve
gone to Madrid and we all saw what
happened there. So we have to be
careful about saying too much.
?We are just trying to fight our way
in there with the Champions
League contenders and maybe
shake things up a little bit.
?But it?s too early to call it
and first we have to complete
the second leg against Basel.?
Kompany looks set to have
Sergio Aguero alongside him
after the striker promised to see
out his contract after leading
City to another trophy.
The Argentine?s future has
again been in doubt this season,
with Pep Guardiola (top) showing interest in Alexis Sanchez.
But Aguero (left) has dealt
with the speculation by scoring
more, with his opener against
Arsenal on Sunday bringing
up 30 for the season.
His current deal lasts
until 2020, meaning he
would have spent nine
years with City.
Aguero, 29, said: ?While
I have a contract, I?ll stay
here. I?m very happy. Guardiola is
one of the best coaches in the world
and the most demanding I?ve had.?

TOMORROW THE WORLD!
By MARK
IRWIN
BRUNT . . . furious
Al bears
Brunt of
new row
PEP GUARDIOLA will not
rest at Manchester City until
he has crushed the life from
his Premier League rivals.
And the relentless City boss is
relying
on
captain
Vincent
Kompany to put his ruthless
plan into action.
The Belgian defender, 31, has had
to overcome a staggering 41 injuries
during his ten years in English
football yet simply refuses to
throw in the towel.
And it is that dogged
determination
which
epitomises
the
attitude
Guardiola
is
demanding
from all of his players.
Kompany said: ?We all have
to buy into the manager?s
beliefs.
?If we don?t, there?s no way we
can develop any style of game.
?It all relies on everyone believing
in that one vision.
?I compare it with going to
university, that?s the level. We never
stop learning every day. But you
evolve so fast.
?After a while you can predict
what he wants, what he?ll say.
?A year-and-a-half ago it was like
he was speaking Chinese to us. It?s
great we have come on in this way.
?He?s intense, relentless, you never
feel satisfaction.
?What he gives us is an incredible
amount of knowledge that he has
and he?s really good at delivering it
as well, so we just have to apply it.
?We
feel
like
we
have
an
advantage over other teams just
because he?s been so precise on what
he wants us to do.?
Guardiola won three titles in a row
at Barcelona and then repeated the
feat at Bayern Munich.
Now he is turning City into the
supreme power of English football.
Plenty of other managers have set
out to dominate, but only Sir Alex
Ferguson truly achieved it.
Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho,
Roberto Mancini, Carlo Ancelotti,
Manuel Pellegrini and Antonio Conte
have all threatened a dynasty.
But none were able to establish the
kind of choke-hold which Guardiola
put on Spain and Germany?s leagues.
And the incredible financial power
of English clubs means even City?s
wealth is no guarantee of success.
It is nine years since any team
won back-to-back Premier League
titles, when Manchester United just
held off Liverpool.
No one doubts City are now just
weeks away from lifting the league
trophy and could be the first team to
do so with 100 points.
They already have the Carabao

?For the rest of us it?s reward for

occasions this season.
?We lost in the FA Cup against

CHRIS BRUNT broke ranks
and slammed his boss as
Alan Pardew continued to
lose a grip on West Brom.
Senior Baggie Brunt, 33,
took aim at his manager?s
tactics in a furious dressing-room rant following
Saturday?s
2-1
home
defeat by Huddersfield.
Brunt, who has more
than a decade of service
at The Hawthorns, lashed
out at team-mates after a
result that left them seven
points from safety at the
foot of the table.
The midfielder came off
the bench to create Craig
Dawson?s consolation goal.
Brunt accused players
of under-performing and
lacking desire and effort
in full view of his boss,
before rounding on Pards.
The Northern Ireland
star openly questioned his
tactics, claiming Pardew
got the formation wrong.
This angry spat comes
after fans hurled cardboard clappers on to the
pitch and chanted: ?You?re
getting sacked in the
morning.?
But ex-Albion striker
Kevin Phillips hailed Brunt
for speaking out.
He said: ?That is the
passion you need. I have
got no issues with that
and I?m sure Pardew
hasn?t either.
?You can?t just sit back
and just float from one
defeat to the next.
?Players are too nice to
each other. Pardew must
harness that passion and
ensure Brunt plays his
part to stop the rot.?

cup rout
By JORDAN DAVIES
JACK WILSHERE slammed
ref Craig Pawson after
Arsenal?s 3-0 Carabao Cup
final loss ? listing THREE
decisions
that
went
Manchester City?s way.
Arsene Wenger ranted
over Vincent Kompany
making it 2-0 ? suggesting Leroy Sane was ?100
per cent offside?.
And Wilshere has joined
the tirade against Pawson,
despite
admitting
City
deserved to win.
The
England
international agrees with his
long-standing boss on the
Kompany goal.
And he believes Sergio
Aguero fouled Shkodran
Mustafi in the lead-up to
the opener.
He also thinks City
should have been down to
ten men in the first half
with
two
bookable
offences for a player.
The man in question
appears to be Fernandinho, who was involved in
several meaty challenges
with Wilshere just before
the break.
Speaking
via
social
media,
Wilshere
said:
?Hard to put my emotions
into words.
?City are a good team
and deserved to win. A lot
of people have had their
say on us and we have to
accept criticism when we
lose.
?That being said I can?t
accept
some
of
the
decisions
that
went
against us yesterday.
?Whatever
you
say
about the first goal, it?s a
foul.
?The second goal is
offside. There should have
been a second yellow in
the first half.
?Yes this happens in
football but it?s still hard
to accept.
?People will say we are
looking for excuses but
these are facts.?
Arsenal?s season could
get worse with a tough
run of games next month,
including another clash
with City in the league
this week and a twolegged Europa League last
16 tie with AC Milan.
Wilshere added: ?We
need to respond, starting
on Thursday. Thanks to all
the Gooners for your
support and trust me we
feel the same but we need
to stick together.?

DAMNING VERDICT ON
WENGER SHAMBLES
WRIGHTY reckons Arsene Wenger?s squad is not
good enough and the boss needs a big overhaul
this summer. SunSport?s MARK IRWIN weighs in on
who should stay and who should go . . .
WHEN I went for dinner with the coals for their mistakes, why
they worry?
Arsene Wenger near the end of should
At times, they just don?t seem to
last season, he was as bubbly, care.
buzzing and bright as ever.
The days when you could
He looked as though he had a real
zest for life and the conversation was
interesting and animated on every
topic. Until we got to talking football,
that is.
As soon as the topic switched to
that, it was like he?d been punched in
the stomach. The enthusiasm and
energy just seemed to drain from him.
At the time, there was a lot of talk
about whether he?d stay on beyond the
end of the season and I thought then
he was almost certain to go.
In the end, as we all know, he
stayed on. But not before ? by his own
admission ? all the uncertainty had
destabilised everything.
Of course, Arsene did so because he
thought it was the right thing to do.
But if you asked him now if he
regretted it, it would surely be a
definite ?yes?.
How could it not be? After what we
witnessed at Wembley on Sunday, the
situation is worse than ever ? and
seems to be plummeting by the week.
And you know the saddest thing of
all for me? Arsenal fans, those who
have suffered for so long now, are
becoming resigned to failure in certain
games.
Yes, they might turn on the style and
hit a few goals against a poor Everton,
an
outclassed
Huddersfield
or
a
struggling Palace.
They may even drag a result out in
the odd big game ? Chelsea in the
League Cup semi, say. But in the main
you know what the outcome is going
to be.
Defeat.
There just doesn?t seem to be a
direction, a plan, an idea. That embarrassment
against
Manchester
City
highlighted it.
And what did Arsene have to say
about it? One goal was 100 per cent
offside and Arsenal controlled the first
half.
Really? That?s not what I saw.
There is never any accountability, no
one is ever to blame, there is blind
faith in players who aren?t good
enough.
Yes, those players have to take the
blame, too, because they?re letting the
manager down.
But if they?re not being hauled over
threaten a player by leaving him
out are gone. They?ll just have a
weekend away if that?s the case.
In my day, if you were dropped
it was devastating, you were at
rock bottom and you wanted to
prove the manager wrong. Not
any more.
It?s dreadful and if someone
said to me now, ?Wrighty, you?ve
got a week to make a case for
why Arsene should stay?, I just
couldn?t do it.
The buck stops with the boss ?
always has and always will ?
and for that Wenger must carry
the can.
Rather than listening to a list
of excuses, I?d like to know why
there was no cohesion. What
was the system? What were the
tactics?
What was the game plan? It
doesn?t seem to have been much
beyond, ?I hope VAR works for us?.
If I was a player and got
slaughtered on TV, radio and in
the papers ? and so many did
after Sunday ? I?d be devastated.
If this lot react against City in the
league on Thursday, all that will do
is lead to people asking, ?Why can
you do it now and not in the final??.
With the top four looking remote,
the only way of salvaging anything is
in the Europa League.
But with AC Milan next, that?s far
from easy.
Yes, Milan may be struggling in
Serie A, but you won?t see anything
but passion, pride, character and
determination from any side managed
by Gennaro Gattuso.
That?s not something you see from
an Arsenal team much any more. Too
often it?s almost been a case of going
through the motions.
But when players know the manager
won?t bawl them out whatever happens, the situation really is pitiful.
Right now at Arsenal, the animals
have taken over the zoo.
They behave when they fancy it and
run riot when they don?t.
Until those animals get a new
keeper to get them back into line, it?s
hard to see the good times returning ?
and that breaks my heart.

keeper but the Colombian is never going to
win you the league. HECTOR BELLERIN: Has not progressed like
he should have but, at 22, it is surely still too
early to write him off. SHKODRAN MUSTAFI: Too slow and makes
far too many mistakes when he is put under
pressure. LAURENT KOSCIELNY: The skipper is not
the force he once was but remains Arsenal?s
most reliable defender. PER MERTESACKER: German retires at the
end of season, anyway, but is too slow to
start any more games. CALUM CHAMBERS: Confidence is shot to
pieces and looks like he is an accident waiting

cannot play at full-back. GRANIT XHAKA: Cannot tackle and can only
pass sideways ? yet Wenger still picks him
every week. AINSLEY MAITLAND-NILES: Impressed in
his breakthrough season. Now the 20-year-old
needs to keep progressing. AARON RAMSEY: Needs to be fit on a more
regular basis if he is to become the player he
thinks he is. JACK WILSHERE: Finally fit after all his
injuries and the only Arsenal player who looks
like he really cares. MOHAMED ELNENY: Unlucky not to get a
regular run, provides much-needed discipline
in midfield. MESUT OZIL: Arsenal have to keep him after
going to such effort getting the German to
sign a new contract. ALEX IWOBI: Midfielder has gone backwards
this season and maybe needs to find a new
challenge. ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE: Difficult to see
where the striker fits in at the Emirates now

must not be allowed to drift in and out of
games like Ozil. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG: Far too

WADDESDON MANOR
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
HOME to Britain?s richest banking
family, the Rothschilds.
The lavish French-style chateau
was built in the Buckinghamshire
countryside by Baron Ferdinand de
Rothschild in 1877.
Alan hears how following the
death of his wife Evelina, 27, during
childbirth, Lord Rothschild, then
also 27, devoted his life to throwing
extravagant weekend parties that
attracted the rich and famous.
SECRETS: Sir Winston Churchill
was a regular guest and always
requested the Portico bedroom so
he could step on to the balcony
and have a cigar ? as smoking was
banned
in
the
house
by
Ferdinand?s younger sister Alice.
The house, which was given to
the National Trust in 1957, may look
familiar. It doubled as Buckingham
Palace in The Queen, starring
Helen Mirren, inset, as well as
being a backdrop for Downton
Abbey and The Crown.
STOWE
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
IT takes a while to walk around
Stowe?s magnificent gardens ?
there are seven miles of pathways
dotted with temples that first
opened to the public in the 1730s.
Alan hears how all was nearly lost
when everything was put up for
sale. The 40-day auction in 1848
made just �,000 ? not enough to
clear the Duke of Buckingham?s
�illion debts.
SECRETS: Sporting a Roman toga
and standing 115ft high, the column
of Lord Cobham, who designed the
18th-century gardens, looks across
the countryside. The original statue
was struck by lightning in 1957 and
replaced in 2001.
Stowe was one of the first places
to have a guidebook, in 1744.

CRAGSIDE
NORTHUMBERLAND
WELCOME to the world?s first ecohome. Cragside was built in the
19th century by innovator William
Armstrong, inset, who predicted
we would one day run out of coal.
By 1848, his futuristic home
became the first in the world to
have light powered by hydroelectricity ? something Buckingham
Palace didn?t even have at the time.
SECRETS: With a telephone
system, a lift, one of Britain?s first
flushing toilets and a dishwasher,
Lord Armstrong?s estate was a
modern marvel.
The gate posts are carved with a
trebuchet ? an ancient catapult ? in
the shape of a letter A.
Lord Armstrong , who went on to
become the first British arms
dealer, died in 1900. There is
thought to be a torpedo still
embedded in the Tumbleton Lake
bed from one of his experiments.
To this day, Cragside is powered
by water.
THIS incredible Gothic mansion
hides a dirty little secret.
Its 19th century owner William
Gibbs, inset, bought and redesigned the property after making
his fortune importing South American bird poo to use as fertiliser.
The house is said to have the
biggest collection in the National
Trust with more than 60,000 items
? from priceless paintings to ice
skates.
SECRETS: In the 1891 census, 19
servants were recorded as living at
the then sprawling 3,000-acre
estate, with one butler, Mr Hemmings, clocking up more than 40
years of service.
It was also one of the first houses
in the country to generate its own
electricity, beginning in 1890.

UNUSUALLY, the servants were the
subject of photos and portraits at
Erddig, with the upstairs/downstairs divide almost crossed out at
this 18th-century home.
London lawyer John Meller,
inset, bought Erddig in 1714 after
the previous owner went bankrupt.
He had a keen eye for fine furniture and left the 1,200-acre estate
to his nephew Simon Yorke after
his death in 1733. This grand country house was owned by the Yorke
family for the next 240 years.
SECRETS: Loyal Harriet Rogers
worked there for more than 40
years. But the pay wasn?t good ? a
laundry girl would earn around
�0 a year in today?s money.
The family never threw anything
away ? including a set of false teeth
? which all ended up in the expansive collection. There are 180
varieties of apples in the orchard.

THERE?S a rich and racy past to be
explored here, as Alan discovers.
It is a tale of two brothers ?
Thomas and Admiral George
Anson whose swashbuckling led to
the 18th century revamp.
Known as the father of the British
Navy, George Anson captured a
Spanish galleon laden with silver,
equivalent to �0,000 at the time,
which was just enough for a spot of
building and re-decorating.
SECRETS: Thomas Anson had big
dreams for his family home. A
village once surrounded The Tower
Of The Winds ? a Grecian monument Thomas commissioned ? but
unhappy with the view, he knocked
all the houses down.
Swinging Sixties photographer
and second cousin to the Queen,
Lord Lichfield, lived in an apartment at Shugborough until his
death in 2005. He shot many iconic
images of the royals and celebs
such as Mick Jagger, inset.
THE WORKHOUSE
SOUTHWELL, NOTTS
HISTORY is not always about the
great and good ? and this workhouse brings us face to face with
our dark past.
The Grade II listed building built
in 1824 looks like a prison and kept
its 158 men, women and children as
effective prisoners.
Mothers were separated from
their children, while men broke
rocks all day in the yard.
SECRETS: The children were
sometimes allowed to see their
parents on Sundays ? but only if
they had been well-behaved.
Oliver Twist and Hetty Feather,
inset, would have felt at home here
too ? gruel was served twice a day.
One rulebook describes the

KINGSTON
LACY
DORSET
BUILT to resemble an Italian Palace
this stately home in Dorset is full to
the brim with Egyptian treasures.
The Grade I listed building was
built in the 1660s and owned by the
Bankes family.
Explorer William John Bankes,
inset, filled the house with Egyptian
treasures ? from bronze cats to an
obelisk. He was forced to flee into
exile after being involved in a
homosexual scandal.
SECRETS: Kingston Lacy?s garden
so impressed Queen Victoria, she
sent her gardeners to pick up tips.
Before the obelisk was shipped
to Kingston Lacy it fell into the Nile
and had to be pulled out.
The estate is also home to the
world?s oldest heritage Red Devon
cattle herd.
CASTLE WARD
NORTHERN IRELAND
KNOWN to Game Of Thrones fans
as Winterfell, Castle Ward was the
perfect on-screen home for Jon
Stark, inset, and his family.
The
imposing
18th-century
mansion was built for Bernard, the
1st Viscount Bangor and Lady Ann
Ward. They couldn?t agree on how
to decorate the home, so split it into
two halves ? calm and classic
versus brooding and gothic.
Not long after the work was finished the couple divorced, leaving
their three sons to fight over the
estate after their death.
SECRETS: The Wards were selfsufficient owning a lead mine, gasworks, brickworks, smithy, waterpowered corn mill and ice house.

By RUTH HARRISON
HE?S best known for pulling
on his wellies and getting
muddy out in the garden.
But Alan Titchmarsh is venturing
inside to explore some of the country?s finest stately homes in the
second series of Secrets of the
National Trust.
The popular show returns to Channel 5 tonight at 8pm to uncover the
hidden treasures in some of our most
most fascinating buildings.
TV favourite Alan, 68, who left
school at 15, admits he wasn?t always
a fan of the past.
He says: ?History didn?t set me
alight until I left school.
?When you?re young you think it?s
just one date after another. The older
you get the more interested you
become in the past.?
Had his teachers taught Alan about
the world?s first eco-home, powered
by hydro-electricity, or told him of
the extravagant soirees held for the
rich and famous at Waddesdon
Manor, Bucks, he may have sat up
and paid attention.
But for the Gardener?s World and
Ground Force star there was one
place that really stood out when
filming the 12-part series.
Alan explains: ?I?d never even
heard of some of the plants they
grow at Mount Stewart, in Northern
Ireland, and I know quite a lot of
plants.
?The National Trust has just spent
�illion restoring the property and
the work they?ve done is astonishing.
The house is beautiful. It?s wonderful
to see something returned to its original glory.?
Interior design was big, brash and
bold back in the 19th century. And
some of the houses left Yorkshireborn Alan a bit in awe.
He says: ?Tyntesfield was built on
the proceeds of bird poo. It?s huge,
cavernous. The chapel there is a
church itself. It has the most amazingly elaborate stained-glass windows
? and this is a private house.
Titchmarsh

SECRET PICNIC SPOT
?I?d have to say The Cow and Calf
Rocks in Ilkley. I was born and
brought up in Yorkshire and the
views over the valley are just
wonderful.?
SECRET FOOD
?My wife?s fish pie. The secret?
Well, that she makes it ? and it?s
on the dinner table and it?s lovely.?
SECRET TV
?I haven?t done it for ages, but I used to
cuddle my younger daughter on the sofa and
watch America?s Next Top Model. I?m a big fan
of Tyra Banks ? absolutely.?
SECRET CELEBRITY CRUSH
?Um . . . Julia Roberts. I?ve
met and interviewed her
twice so I was able to
indulge my crush firsthand.?
BIGGEST SECRET
?That I?m a poet. I?ve written poetry for about 30 years
and never done much with it ?
but now I?m about to have my
first album out.
?It?s called The Glorious Garden and it comes
out this Friday.
?I?ve written poems about peonies, snowdrops and oak trees and Debbie Wiseman
has composed a different piece of
music for each poem. That?s my
latest secret.?
SECRET GUILTY
PLEASURE
?Chocolate. Dark chocolate.
Too easy to eat. Or milk chocolate fruit and nut. I?d eat it almost
every night ? but don?t keep
going on about it.?
Moved to tears
?What astonishes me most about
the Victorians and Georgians is how
they felt incumbent upon themselves
to display their wealth, to show how
well they?ve done.
?If you had it, you flaunted it.
We?re much more modest nowadays.?
Scrambling underground in a 60ft
truffle tunnel at Shugborough, Staffs,
or climbing a hidden staircase at
Hardwick Hall, Derbys, Alan can?t
contain his glee ? but it?s the untold
stories of the people he finds most
moving.
And when given exclusive access to
Baron de Ferdinand Rothschild?s private Red Book at Waddesdon Manor
? a photographic journal documenting the creation of his pleasure
palace in Buckinghamshire ? Alan is
almost moved to tears.
He says: ?I get involved with the
stories. That is the greatest joy in
going around these houses because
you suddenly find yourself really in
touch with the past.
?You?re not just a spectator. By
going there you become a part of the
history and it rubs off on you.?
Alan, who lives in Hampshire with
his wife of 42 years Alison, and has
two daughters Polly and Camilla,
adds: ?This is a voyage of discovery
that we can all do. That?s the whole
point of the series, going around and
looking at things that you?ve never
seen before, discovering the stories of
people you?ve never met or heard of
before ? and finding a whole new
world opening out.
?There?s been a bit of digging and
delving ? and we get to take the
viewer
to
places
you
don?t
normally see as a visitor.?
And Alan?s keen for everyone to
remember what a hidden treasure
the National Trust is, too.
He says: ?If it weren?t for the
National Trust a lot of these places
would have disappeared. It has
conserved and kept going for future
generations,
a
disappearing
and
disappeared way of life.?
So how many of the 500 houses
and gardens remain a secret to
Alan?
He says: ?Who knows how many
I?ve been to over the years, hundreds.
But there?s always more to explore ?
and
it?s
rather
nice
to
find
new ones.?

FLASHPOINT . . .
Dele starts going
down as Hennessey
slides to meet him
By CHARLIE WYETT
ERIC DIER has leapt to Dele
Alli?s defence after two England
legends put the boot into the
controversial Spurs star.
Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer
both accused Dele of diving against
Crystal Palace.
But Dier reckons that smacks of
double standards.
Dele fell to the ground after contact
from Patrick van Aanholt in Spurs?
1-0 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
In another incident he tumbled
over home keeper Wayne Hennessey.
Shearer tweeted ?a blatant dive?,
while Lineker branded the England
star ?Divey Alli?.
But Dier, defending his Tottenham
team-mate and close pal, hit back,
saying: ?I?m sure they probably both
dived in their careers.
?These things happen. Obviously,
because it?s Dele I think it probably
gets more attention than it deserves.?
Dele has been booked twice for
simulation this season but ref Kevin
Friend saw nothing wrong at Palace.
And Dier said: ?If you take the
action in the game against Liverpool,
where he got booked for diving, I
was right behind him.
?When he?s running towards the
ball, he?s taken a touch and it looks
like the guy is about to come and
take him out.
?There is a sense of, ?I need to get

these
two

DIVE FOR COVER . . . Dier rapped Shearer (left) and Lineker (right) for Dele claims
out of the way?. If he then goes and
stops, that?s a difficult situation.
?I don?t think he pays any attention
to it and I think that?s the most
important thing.
?All he needs to pay attention to is
how his team-mates feel and how the
manager sees him and how his family
see him. The rest really is irrelevant.
?One of the beautiful things about
football is everyone has an opinion,
but it doesn?t mean everyone?s opinion
is right.
?It?s difficult because nowadays with
Twitter and Instagram, and every
other social media outlet, everyone
has an opinion and you have to sift
through it to find the right one.
?That?s why I say for every footballer, myself included, we just need
to focus on the people that matter to
us ? the manager, our team-mates and
our family. I don?t think what anyone
else says should really bother us.?
Striker Harry Kane, who scored
Tottenham?s 88th-minute winner, also
backed Dele after his bust-up with
Van Aanholt.
Kane said: ?It was a heated game.
Dele wanted a penalty on one of the
fouls and it wasn?t given, and they
squared up. It?s football, there?s nothing malicious or anything like that.
?It?s hard when people watch football and they don?t really understand.
Sometimes players dive but sometimes you can?t get out of the way.
?When you get a reputation and
when it?s happened a couple of times,
the fans get on your back.
?But the ref is there to make a call
on the day and you?ve just got to go
with what he says.
?Sometimes you get a reputation
but that?s when we?ve got to trust the
refs. They can?t let that affect them
and I don?t think they do.
?The fans might jeer or boo every
time it happens but it?s down to the
ref to do his job and that?s all we
can count on.?

The

over
Chelsea
on
Sunday
made it 22 for the season.
As well as grabbing a fine
equaliser,
the
�million
frontman set up the winner
for Jesse Lingard.
Lukaku?s fourth goal in five
games may still not have
convinced everyone of his
talent ? but he aims to back
up his self-belief with some
silverware at Old Trafford.
The Belgian said: ?As long
as I win and I lead my team
to winning, that?s when I will
be really satisfied.
?A lot of big players that
we recognise today in the
game are players who have
won something and I want to

?I started playing when I

?I?ve been doing it for

?You expect a bit more
respect but it?s the situation
we?re in. I don?t listen to it.
?I just want to improve
and show the people what I
can do on the pitch.?
Lukaku turns 25 in May
and has already racked up
167 goals in 357 games for
Anderlecht, Chelsea, Everton,
They are impressive figures.
But his critics will point
out that Sunday?s goal was
his first against another team
in the top six since he joined
United last summer.
And
his
strike
came
against the club that had
been desperate to lure him
back to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea
were
convinced
they had won the tug of war
for the burly 6ft 2in Belgian,
only for him to head north to
the Theatre of Dreams.
Lukaku added: ?When I
make a choice, it?s with my
head and my heart. I made
the right choice for me. I?m
in a good situation.
?I?m with a manager and
players who push me every
day. The challenge is there to

?I think I have a nice

quarter-finals.
The Cup is United?s best
chance of silverware this
season ? and they are determined to make sure only City
finish above them in the
Premier League.
Smalling
added:
?We?ve
been second for near enough
the whole season, so we?re
within our rights to make
sure we finish there.
?These are huge games and
the fact we play a lot of our
rivals at home is a big factor
because of our home form.?

THE fifth round of the FA
Cup will be played in
midweek to secure a
winter break.
It is understood the FA,
Premier League and Football League have reached
an agreement for an
annual two-week break in
early February ? starting
in 2019-20.
There will also be no FA
Cup fifth-round replays.
According to The Times,
the
break
would
be
staggered
with
five
Premier League games
being played on one weekend and the other five the
following weekend.
All Prem teams will have
at least 13 days without a
game in a bid to help
England before Euro 2020
and future World Cups.
The winter break will
not apply to clubs in the
Championship,
League
One and League Two.
The semi-finals of the
Carabao Cup will remain
over two legs. EFL chief
executive Shaun Harvey
said: ?There are no plans
to change it.?
Picture: RICHARD PELHAM
MANCHESTER CITY look like a team ready to dominate under Pep Guardiola. But
history tells us great expectations are not always lived up to.
Bayern Munich are poised for a sixth straight Bundesliga crown and
Juventus could make it seven in a row in Italy?s Serie A.
But just two clubs have ever retained the Premier League title. And in the Prem
era only Manchester United ? from 1999-2001 and 2007-2009 ? have won a hattrick of titles. SunSport looks at the teams who flattered only to deceive . . .

Kompany celebrates his
goal in the cup final
THAT?S YER LOTTI . . . Italian axed year later
Mourinho?s third Chelsea title was a masterclass in wringing the maximum from his
players. But the squad were drained,
physically and mentally and the Portuguese
coach was sacked before Christmas the
following season.
MAKE IT COUNT
From Back Page
goals has been a feature of this club for
many years now. So we can only say
that this team will be better
than the previous ones if we
can win the Premier League
then go again and again.
?I want to keep that hunger
in the team. So all I can say is
well done for what we have
done so far this season but we
have to keep going.?
City are currently 13 points
clear at the top of the Premier
League ? with a game in hand
? and need 18 points from their
remaining 11 games to be
certain of winning the title.
With the Carabao Cup in the
bag, Kompany is now targeting
Champions League success.
They look certainties for the
quarter-finals after crushing Basel
4-0 in the away leg of their
last-16 tie earlier this month.
And Kompany said: ?There is
belief that we can do well in
the Champions League but we
are not favourites above the big
clubs like Madrid and Barcelona.
?PSG are a great team but they?ve
gone to Madrid and we all saw what
happened there. So we have to be
careful about saying too much.
?We are just trying to fight our way
in there with the Champions
League contenders and maybe
shake things up a little bit.
?But it?s too early to call it
and first we have to complete
the second leg against Basel.?
Kompany looks set to have
Sergio Aguero alongside him
after the striker promised to see
out his contract after leading
City to another trophy.
The Argentine?s future has
again been in doubt this season,
with Pep Guardiola (top) showing interest in Alexis Sanchez.
But Aguero (left) has dealt
with the speculation by scoring
more, with his opener against
Arsenal on Sunday bringing
up 30 for the season.
His current deal lasts
until 2020, meaning he
would have spent nine
years with City.
Aguero, 29, said: ?While
I have a contract, I?ll stay
here. I?m very happy. Guardiola is
one of the best coaches in the world
and the most demanding I?ve had.?

TOMORROW THE WORLD!
By MARK
IRWIN
BRUNT . . . furious
Al bears
Brunt of
new row
PEP GUARDIOLA will not
rest at Manchester City until
he has crushed the life from
his Premier League rivals.
And the relentless City boss is
relying
on
captain
Vincent
Kompany to put his ruthless
plan into action.
The Belgian defender, 31, has had
to overcome a staggering 41 injuries
during his ten years in English
football yet simply refuses to
throw in the towel.
And it is that dogged
determination
which
epitomises
the
attitude
Guardiola
is
demanding
from all of his players.
Kompany said: ?We all have
to buy into the manager?s
beliefs.
?If we don?t, there?s no way we
can develop any style of game.
?It all relies on everyone believing
in that one vision.
?I compare it with going to
university, that?s the level. We never
stop learning every day. But you
evolve so fast.
?After a while you can predict
what he wants, what he?ll say.
?A year-and-a-half ago it was like
he was speaking Chinese to us. It?s
great we have come on in this way.
?He?s intense, relentless, you never
feel satisfaction.
?What he gives us is an incredible
amount of knowledge that he has
and he?s really good at delivering it
as well, so we just have to apply it.
?We
feel
like
we
have
an
advantage over other teams just
because he?s been so precise on what
he wants us to do.?
Guardiola won three titles in a row
at Barcelona and then repeated the
feat at Bayern Munich.
Now he is turning City into the
supreme power of English football.
Plenty of other managers have set
out to dominate, but only Sir Alex
Ferguson truly achieved it.
Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho,
Roberto Mancini, Carlo Ancelotti,
Manuel Pellegrini and Antonio Conte
have all threatened a dynasty.
But none were able to establish the
kind of choke-hold which Guardiola
put on Spain and Germany?s leagues.
And the incredible financial power
of English clubs means even City?s
wealth is no guarantee of success.
It is nine years since any team
won back-to-back Premier League
titles, when Manchester United just
held off Liverpool.
No one doubts City are now just
weeks away from lifting the league
trophy and could be the first team to
do so with 100 points.
They already have the Carabao
Cup after beating Arsenal 3-0 in
Sunday?s Wembley final.
Kompany celebrated like a madman when he scored City?s second
goal and said: ?Maybe Sunday will
be a starting point for the manager
because this is the first trophy he
has won with City.
?For the rest of us it?s reward for
having played so well on so many
occasions this season.
?We lost in the FA Cup against
Wigan and went into Sunday?s final
suddenly thinking that two games
could cost us two trophies, which
wouldn?t have been deserved.
?So
winning
the cup gives us
the feeling that
we can achieve
stuff
playing
how we do.
?Scoring in a cup
final meant the world
to me.
?I didn?t plan the celebration,
as you can probably tell. It was
just pure emotion.
?Scoring
the
winner
against
Manchester United in 2012, it?s always
going to be difficult to top that. But
this goal is right up there.
?Having so much pressure and so
many chances, if we didn?t score the
second goal sometimes you can end
up losing.
?It gave us the comfort to carry on
and build from there.
?We showed a lot of resilience at

Wembley. You can always come into
a cup final and be a little bit shellshocked. It happens.
?But to maintain the calm and be
able to raise your performance
throughout the game is a special
thing to be able to do.
?There is a lot to be proud of and,
hopefully, we?ll be able to confirm
the Premier League title soon.
?The last time we won the League
Cup final, against Liverpool in
2016, we played them again in the
league a few days later and they
spanked us.
?We have to make sure the same
doesn?t happen against Arsenal this
week and that previous experience
will be a great thing for us.
?Winning the Carabao Cup is just
one trophy.
?But what I want to achieve for
the club is to go on another journey

AT A STRETCH . . . Gabriel
Jesus trains for City yesterday,

That hunger for further silverware is
shared
by
midfielder
Ilkay
Gundogan, who said: ?Our ambition
should be to win everything.
?That?s
why
we
were
so
disappointed to lose in the FA Cup.
?It wasn?t easy to deal with our
feelings after that defeat but we
always need to go on and now we
have won our first trophy.
?It doesn?t stop here. There are
still plenty of huge games to play
and there?s no time to relax and
enjoy ourselves.
?It?s weird to be playing Arsenal
twice in five days and we have to be
ready to go again on Thursday. We
know how Arsenal are able to play.
?They have a strong team and in
front of their crowd it?s going to be
another challenging game for us.?
It is a task Guardiola?s players
seem to be relishing, though.
Kevin De Bruyne added: ?Winning
our first trophy will help us in
important games in the future.
?Our
second-half
performance
against
Arsenal
was
absolutely
wonderful. We showed character and
the way we need to play.
?I don?t think our attitude has
changed since the first day.
?We?ve been focused from the start
and we?ve felt good throughout the
season because we?ve won most of
our games.
?I don?t know how worried other
teams are about us but we can only
look at ourselves and play the way
we need to play to keep winning.
?We?ve got another massive week
coming up with Arsenal and then
Chelsea, so the task now is to win
those games and keep the gap at the
top of the table.?
CHRIS BRUNT broke ranks
and slammed his boss as
Alan Pardew continued to
lose a grip on West Brom.
Senior Baggie Brunt, 33,
took aim at his manager?s
tactics in a furious dressing-room rant following
Saturday?s
2-1
home
defeat by Huddersfield.
Brunt, who has more
than a decade of service
at The Hawthorns, lashed
out at team-mates after a
result that left them seven
points from safety at the
foot of the table.
The midfielder came off
the bench to create Craig
Dawson?s consolation goal.
Brunt accused players
of under-performing and
lacking desire and effort
in full view of his boss,
before rounding on Pards.
The Northern Ireland
star openly questioned his
tactics, claiming Pardew
got the formation wrong.
This angry spat comes
after fans hurled cardboard clappers on to the
pitch and chanted: ?You?re
getting sacked in the
morning.?
But ex-Albion striker
Kevin Phillips hailed Brunt
for speaking out.
He said: ?That is the
passion you need. I have
got no issues with that
and I?m sure Pardew
hasn?t either.
?You can?t just sit back
and just float from one
defeat to the next.
?Players are too nice to
each other. Pardew must
harness that passion and
ensure Brunt plays his
part to stop the rot.?
Sport
NEYMAR is expected to
be out for six weeks
with a sprained right
ankle
and

The Brazilian suffered
the injury in PSG?s 3-0
win over Marseille on

Jack says
Paw print
is all over
cup rout
By JORDAN DAVIES
JACK WILSHERE slammed
ref Craig Pawson after
Arsenal?s 3-0 Carabao Cup
final loss ? listing THREE
decisions
that
went
Manchester City?s way.
Arsene Wenger ranted
over Vincent Kompany
making it 2-0 ? suggesting Leroy Sane was ?100
per cent offside?.
And Wilshere has joined
the tirade against Pawson,
despite
admitting
City
deserved to win.
The
England
international agrees with his
long-standing boss on the
Kompany goal.
And he believes Sergio
Aguero fouled Shkodran
Mustafi in the lead-up to
the opener.
He also thinks City
should have been down to
ten men in the first half
with
two
bookable
offences for a player.
The man in question
appears to be Fernandinho, who was involved in
several meaty challenges
with Wilshere just before
the break.
Speaking
via
social
media,
Wilshere
said:
?Hard to put my emotions
into words.
?City are a good team
and deserved to win. A lot
of people have had their
say on us and we have to
accept criticism when we
lose.
?That being said I can?t
accept
some
of
the
decisions
that
went
against us yesterday.
?Whatever
you
say
about the first goal, it?s a
foul.
?The second goal is
offside. There should have
been a second yellow in
the first half.
?Yes this happens in
football but it?s still hard
to accept.
?People will say we are
looking for excuses but
these are facts.?
Arsenal?s season could
get worse with a tough
run of games next month,
including another clash
with City in the league
this week and a twolegged Europa League last
16 tie with AC Milan.
Wilshere added: ?We
need to respond, starting
on Thursday. Thanks to all
the Gooners for your
support and trust me we
feel the same but we need
to stick together.?

DAMNING VERDICT ON
WENGER SHAMBLES
WRIGHTY reckons Arsene Wenger?s squad is not
good enough and the boss needs a big overhaul
this summer. SunSport?s MARK IRWIN weighs in on
who should stay and who should go . . .
WHEN I went for dinner with the coals for their mistakes, why
they worry?
Arsene Wenger near the end of should
At times, they just don?t seem to

buzzing and bright as ever.
The days when you could
He looked as though he had a real
zest for life and the conversation was
interesting and animated on every
topic. Until we got to talking football,
that is.
As soon as the topic switched to
that, it was like he?d been punched in
the stomach. The enthusiasm and
energy just seemed to drain from him.
At the time, there was a lot of talk
about whether he?d stay on beyond the
end of the season and I thought then
he was almost certain to go.
In the end, as we all know, he
stayed on. But not before ? by his own
admission ? all the uncertainty had
destabilised everything.
Of course, Arsene did so because he
thought it was the right thing to do.
But if you asked him now if he
regretted it, it would surely be a
definite ?yes?.
How could it not be? After what we
witnessed at Wembley on Sunday, the
situation is worse than ever ? and
seems to be plummeting by the week.
And you know the saddest thing of
all for me? Arsenal fans, those who
have suffered for so long now, are
becoming resigned to failure in certain
games.
Yes, they might turn on the style and
hit a few goals against a poor Everton,
an
outclassed
Huddersfield
or
a
struggling Palace.
They may even drag a result out in
the odd big game ? Chelsea in the
League Cup semi, say. But in the main
you know what the outcome is going
to be.
Defeat.
There just doesn?t seem to be a
direction, a plan, an idea. That embarrassment
against
Manchester
City
highlighted it.
And what did Arsene have to say
about it? One goal was 100 per cent
offside and Arsenal controlled the first
half.
Really? That?s not what I saw.
There is never any accountability, no
one is ever to blame, there is blind
faith in players who aren?t good
enough.
Yes, those players have to take the
blame, too, because they?re letting the
manager down.
But if they?re not being hauled over
threaten a player by leaving him
out are gone. They?ll just have a
weekend away if that?s the case.
In my day, if you were dropped
it was devastating, you were at
rock bottom and you wanted to
prove the manager wrong. Not
any more.
It?s dreadful and if someone
said to me now, ?Wrighty, you?ve
got a week to make a case for
why Arsene should stay?, I just
couldn?t do it.
The buck stops with the boss ?
always has and always will ?
and for that Wenger must carry
the can.
Rather than listening to a list
of excuses, I?d like to know why
there was no cohesion. What
was the system? What were the
tactics?
What was the game plan? It
doesn?t seem to have been much
beyond, ?I hope VAR works for us?.
If I was a player and got
slaughtered on TV, radio and in
the papers ? and so many did
after Sunday ? I?d be devastated.
If this lot react against City in the
league on Thursday, all that will do
is lead to people asking, ?Why can
you do it now and not in the final??.
With the top four looking remote,
the only way of salvaging anything is
in the Europa League.
But with AC Milan next, that?s far
from easy.
Yes, Milan may be struggling in
Serie A, but you won?t see anything
but passion, pride, character and
determination from any side managed
by Gennaro Gattuso.
That?s not something you see from
an Arsenal team much any more. Too
often it?s almost been a case of going
through the motions.
But when players know the manager
won?t bawl them out whatever happens, the situation really is pitiful.
Right now at Arsenal, the animals
have taken over the zoo.
They behave when they fancy it and
run riot when they don?t.
Until those animals get a new
keeper to get them back into line, it?s
hard to see the good times returning ?
and that breaks my heart.
ARSENE?S DIRTY DOZEN
THE Carabao Cup defeat
means Arsene Wenger?s
side are enduring their
joint-worst season since
2005-06 when they had
13 losses before the

end of February. They
did pip Spurs for fourth
on the final day and
reach the Champions
League final but that will

PETR CECH: Keeper is 35 and starting to
show his age but is also one of the few
strong characters in the squad. DAVID OSPINA: Good enough for a back-up
keeper but the Colombian is never going to
win you the league. HECTOR BELLERIN: Has not progressed like
he should have but, at 22, it is surely still too
early to write him off. SHKODRAN MUSTAFI: Too slow and makes
far too many mistakes when he is put under
pressure. LAURENT KOSCIELNY: The skipper is not
the force he once was but remains Arsenal?s
most reliable defender. PER MERTESACKER: German retires at the
end of season, anyway, but is too slow to
start any more games. CALUM CHAMBERS: Confidence is shot to
pieces and looks like he is an accident waiting
to happen. ROB HOLDING: Struggling to convince that
he does have what it takes but still worth
persevering with. NACHO MONREAL: Says it all about Arsenal
that the Spaniard has been their best player
this season. SEAD KOLASINAC: Signed to huge fanfare
last summer . . . until Wenger realised he
cannot play at full-back. GRANIT XHAKA: Cannot tackle and can only
pass sideways ? yet Wenger still picks him
every week. AINSLEY MAITLAND-NILES: Impressed in
his breakthrough season. Now the 20-year-old
needs to keep progressing. AARON RAMSEY: Needs to be fit on a more
regular basis if he is to become the player he
thinks he is. JACK WILSHERE: Finally fit after all his
injuries and the only Arsenal player who looks
like he really cares. MOHAMED ELNENY: Unlucky not to get a
regular run, provides much-needed discipline
in midfield. MESUT OZIL: Arsenal have to keep him after
going to such effort getting the German to
sign a new contract. ALEX IWOBI: Midfielder has gone backwards
this season and maybe needs to find a new
challenge. ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE: Difficult to see
where the striker fits in at the Emirates now
Aubameyang is on board. HENRIKH MKHITARYAN: Newest arrival
must not be allowed to drift in and out of
games like Ozil. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG: Far too
early to judge him but the club?s record buy
needs to start scoring quickly. DANNY WELBECK: Too many injuries mean
the England striker has lost his confidence
and lost his way. RAM ?N BLAST

Arsene Wenger gambled
on the midfielder?s fitness
even though he had only

But the Welsh international could not make the
kind of impact he wanted
as Arsenal were over-run.
Ramsey said: ?Of course

from the beginning but we
made a silly mistake which
led to their first goal.
?We couldn?t afford to
concede goals in the way
we did. Manchester City
are such a quality team
and it?s always difficult
when they take the lead.
?They have opened up
many teams, did it to us
and punished us every
time. Now we have to get
ready for the league game

19th-century eco-home.
Helping Alan on his voyage

HARDWICK HALL
DERBYSHIRE
MEET Bess of Hardwick, inset ?
the second-wealthiest woman of
the 16th century. Her grand
designs led to her building TWO
manor houses, just metres apart.
Four marriages had been kind
to Bess?s bank balance and she
returned to Hardwick to rebuild
her family home.
Following the death of her
fourth husband, she abandoned
the first project in 1590, to build a
far bigger and better design ?
affectionately known as ?Hardwick Hall, more glass than wall?.
SECRETS: Shouting from the six
turrets are the initials ?ES? ? for
Elizabeth Talbot, the Countess of
Shrewsbury. She wanted everyone in Derbyshire to know this
was the house that Bess built.
Herb this one before? With
over 150 varieties, Hardwick has the largest herb

WADDESDON MANOR
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
HOME to Britain?s richest banking
family, the Rothschilds.
The lavish French-style chateau
was built in the Buckinghamshire
countryside by Baron Ferdinand de
Rothschild in 1877.
Alan hears how following the
death of his wife Evelina, 27, during
childbirth, Lord Rothschild, then
also 27, devoted his life to throwing
extravagant weekend parties that
attracted the rich and famous.
SECRETS: Sir Winston Churchill
was a regular guest and always
requested the Portico bedroom so
he could step on to the balcony
and have a cigar ? as smoking was
banned
in
the
house
by
Ferdinand?s younger sister Alice.
The house, which was given to
the National Trust in 1957, may look
familiar. It doubled as Buckingham
Palace in The Queen, starring
Helen Mirren, inset, as well as
being a backdrop for Downton
Abbey and The Crown.
STOWE
BUCKINGHAMSHIRE
IT takes a while to walk around
Stowe?s magnificent gardens ?
there are seven miles of pathways
dotted with temples that first
opened to the public in the 1730s.
Alan hears how all was nearly lost
when everything was put up for
sale. The 40-day auction in 1848
made just �,000 ? not enough to
clear the Duke of Buckingham?s
�illion debts.
SECRETS: Sporting a Roman toga
and standing 115ft high, the column
of Lord Cobham, who designed the
18th-century gardens, looks across
the countryside. The original statue
was struck by lightning in 1957 and
replaced in 2001.
Stowe was one of the first places
to have a guidebook, in 1744.
In 1963 The Beatles, inset, played
a �0-gig at Stowe School.
Instead of screaming girls, the Fab
Four faced rows of quiet and
smartly dressed boys ? who did
little else but clap.

CRAGSIDE
NORTHUMBERLAND
WELCOME to the world?s first ecohome. Cragside was built in the
19th century by innovator William
Armstrong, inset, who predicted
we would one day run out of coal.
By 1848, his futuristic home
became the first in the world to
have light powered by hydroelectricity ? something Buckingham
Palace didn?t even have at the time.
SECRETS: With a telephone
system, a lift, one of Britain?s first
flushing toilets and a dishwasher,
Lord Armstrong?s estate was a
modern marvel.
The gate posts are carved with a
trebuchet ? an ancient catapult ? in
the shape of a letter A.
Lord Armstrong , who went on to
become the first British arms
dealer, died in 1900. There is
thought to be a torpedo still
embedded in the Tumbleton Lake
bed from one of his experiments.
To this day, Cragside is powered
by water.
THIS incredible Gothic mansion
hides a dirty little secret.
Its 19th century owner William
Gibbs, inset, bought and redesigned the property after making
his fortune importing South American bird poo to use as fertiliser.
The house is said to have the
biggest collection in the National
Trust with more than 60,000 items
? from priceless paintings to ice
skates.
SECRETS: In the 1891 census, 19
servants were recorded as living at
the then sprawling 3,000-acre
estate, with one butler, Mr Hemmings, clocking up more than 40
years of service.
It was also one of the first houses
in the country to generate its own
electricity, beginning in 1890.

ERDDIG
WREXHAM
UNUSUALLY, the servants were the
subject of photos and portraits at
Erddig, with the upstairs/downstairs divide almost crossed out at
this 18th-century home.
London lawyer John Meller,
inset, bought Erddig in 1714 after
the previous owner went bankrupt.
He had a keen eye for fine furniture and left the 1,200-acre estate
to his nephew Simon Yorke after
his death in 1733. This grand country house was owned by the Yorke
family for the next 240 years.
SECRETS: Loyal Harriet Rogers
worked there for more than 40
years. But the pay wasn?t good ? a
laundry girl would earn around
�0 a year in today?s money.
The family never threw anything
away ? including a set of false teeth
? which all ended up in the expansive collection. There are 180
varieties of apples in the orchard.
NT owns over
500 historic
houses, 56
villages, 39 pubs,

and 1 gold

THERE?S a rich and racy past to be
explored here, as Alan discovers.
It is a tale of two brothers ?
Thomas and Admiral George
Anson whose swashbuckling led to
the 18th century revamp.
Known as the father of the British
Navy, George Anson captured a
Spanish galleon laden with silver,
equivalent to �0,000 at the time,
which was just enough for a spot of
building and re-decorating.
SECRETS: Thomas Anson had big
dreams for his family home. A
village once surrounded The Tower
Of The Winds ? a Grecian monument Thomas commissioned ? but
unhappy with the view, he knocked
all the houses down.
