when it

roof panels

FOOTBALL united in
support of ailing Sir Alex
Ferguson last night –
even at the home of their
arch rivals.
Manchester City boss Pep
Guardiola broke off from his
club’s title celebrations to send
the former Manchester United
manager a “big hug”.
Pep was tossed joyfully into the
air by his players amid wild
celebrations after City were
presented with the Premier
League trophy following a 0-0 draw
with Huddersfield Town.
But despite the happy scenes,
the thoughts of the manager, his
staff, players and many of the
club’s fans were with former rival
Fergie, who underwent emergency surgery on Saturday evening
following a brain haemorrhage.
Old Trafford insiders insist
that the operation had gone “very
well” but the 76-year-old – who
retired in 2013 after winning 38
trophies during 26 years in charge
– needs a spell in intensive care to
aid his recovery.
Pep said news of Fergie’s plight
had upset City staff.
His joint-assistant coach Brian
Kidd, 68, worked alongside Sir
Alex at United during many of his
early triumphs.
Pep said: “Brian Kidd, who is
here now, was with him for a lot
of time.
Rivalry
“So a big hug and our thoughts
are with his wife Cathy and the
Manchester United family.
“I was glad to have dinner with
him two weeks ago and, hopefully,
he can recover as quickly as possible. For him, for all Manchester
United family.
“Of course, it’s not rivalry.
“All the Manchester City fans
today in the stadium, you cannot
find one person who cannot want
the best for an amazing person.”
Brian described his pal Fergie
as “iconic” and said his illness
had cast a “really sombre mood”
around City.
“You think Sir Alex Ferguson is
indestructible,’’ he said.
“What he did for Manchester
United, it’s unreal.”
As City fans celebrated their
title win, some unfurled goodwill messages to the former
United boss.
One banner read: “Football
aside, get well Fergie.’’
Warm applause also rang
out at the Emirates Stadium
yesterday after the Arsenal
announcer said the club’s
thoughts were with
Fergie before the
team’s Premier
League match
against Burnley.
Dad-of-three
Pep: I would
love to
give Fergie
a big hug
Fergie had appeared fit and well
when he presented Arsene Wenger
with a memento in Manchester
last Sunday.
Fergie and Arsene were bitter
touchline rivals in the 1990s but
the pair embraced before the
Frenchman’s last visit
to Old Trafford as Arsenal
manager eight days ago before he
leaves the London club after 22
years at the end of the season.
Fears for Fergie’s health began
to emerge after his football
manager son Darren did not
attend his club Doncaster Rovers’
final League One match of the
season on Saturday due to a
“severe family issue”.
His father was admitted to
Salford Royal Infirmary, where he
underwent emergency surgery to
treat bleeding on the brain.
Luke Griggs, of the brain
injury charity Headway, said the
outlook could vary depending on
many factors including where
the bleed occurred and the
size of it. He said: “Every brain
injury is unique as is every
individual’s recovery.’’
Many patients will survive a
bleed on the brain but recovery
can take many months.
The Football Association, Premier League, Fifa, Uefa and other
clubs from across Britain and
around the world tweeted their
best wishes along with a host of
current and former United stars.
Ex-United and England captain
Bryan Robson said his ex-boss’s
plight was a message to anyone
with symptoms to seek treatment.
David Beckham posted a picture
on Instagram of him signing a
contract as a teenager alongside
Fergie with the message: “Keep

A SILENT KILLER WITH FEW SIGNS
SIR Alex Ferguson is fighting for life
®
after suffering a brain haemorrhage – the
term used for bleeding in or around the brain.
It causes swelling and increases
the pressure on the brain, reducing vital
blood flow.
Symptoms can be similar to a stroke
and include weakness down one side,
vomiting, headaches and a stiff neck.
The condition can sometimes be caused
®
by alcoholism, high blood pressure and
using cocaine.
But there are often no warning signs
at all that a haemorrhage is going to
take place.
Surgery is often needed to relieve the
pressure on the brain by draining the blood.
Older men are much more likely to suffer
from a haemorrhage. About 44% of
those who are afflicted die within a month
®
®
and only one in five go on to make a
complete recovery.
Former United goalkeeper Edwin van der
Sar, right, saw his wife Annemarie suffer a
brain bleed in 2009 and make a full recovery.
He tweeted: “Devastated about the news
about Sir Alex and knowing all too well
about the situation ourselves.
“Stay strong and hope together with
everyone you recover.”
®
where he has been in demand as a
lecturer and motivational speaker
while indulging his love of horse racing and United.
City captain Vincent Kompany tweeted: “Hang in there Sir Alex. Thoughts
are with the family and close ones.”
The club’s Spanish midfielder
David Silva messaged: “Get
well soon Sir Alex.’’
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC
reminded the football world
of Sir Alex’s support following the Hillsborough disaster
in 1989 when 96 Reds fans died
in a stadium tragedy. The club
tweeted: “The thoughts of everyone at LFC are with Sir Alex
Ferguson and his family – a
great rival but also a great
friend who supported this club
during its most difficult time.
“It is hoped that Sir Alex will
make a full recovery.’’

SNOOKER was invented in 1875 by
a British Army officer
Neville Chamberlain
(not the future

in India, after tweaking
the game of
billiards.
THE name

cadets.
The original game
featured 15 reds,
yellow, green, pink and
black.
BROWN and blue were
added later. The first
official rules were drawn
up in 1884.
THE first World
Championships
were held in 1927.
The title was won by
Joe Davis who scooped
£6. He triumphed at the
next 15 tournaments.
SNOOKER hit TV

AN MP risked her life to

Tory Victoria Prentis was

saw a group of men
frantically waving hi-vis
jackets at a herd.
“It was very, very
frightening. I have never
seen cattle behave like that
before,” said Mrs Prentis,
MP for Banbury, Oxon.
The men were battling
to shoo them away from a
badly-injured woman who
had been knocked to the
ground and was being
trampled under the hooves
of the cows, some weighing
nearly half a ton.
One of the men was also
sent flying by the charging
animals, said the MP, who
rushed from her car to help
during the incident on
Saturday between Banbury
and Oxford.
She assisted the men and
tended to the seriously
injured woman before
calling for an ambulance.
A crew arrived and took
the victim to John
Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford,
for emergency treatment.
The 47-year-old MP, who
is a qualified barrister,
looked after the woman’s

HOTTER MEXICO
Record highs herald start of heatwave
has been triggered by a rare roast
from Russia.
And this is just the start of a
three-month heatwave.
Forecasters say we are set for
higher than average temperatures
throughout June to August.
Weather Outlook forecaster Brian
Gaze said he believed the summer
would be one to remember. He said:
“This summer could be the warm-
est for five years. 31C could be seen
from next month. Warm air is due
from continental Europe.
“As recent summers have been so
mixed, this one has a high chance
of being the warmest since 2013.”
A Met Office forecast reads: “For
May-July, above-average temperatures are more probable than
below-average temperatures.”
If the mercury is pushed over the
record 29C set in 1976 at Waddon,
south London, today will be the
hottest May 7 since records began
in 1841.
Today could also be hotter than
the entire early May bank holiday
weekend’s 28.6C record temperature set in 1978.
Met Office forecaster Marco
Petagna said: “It will certainly
be the warmest early May bank
holiday on record, with 28C
possible in the south east.
“There will be plenty of
sunshine for most, with
good
conditions
for
outdoor activities.
“Tuesday has 28C possible again, with the low 20s
from Wednesday and fine
weather in days ahead.”

A POLICE officer wants
£200,000 from the Met after
being left “traumatised”

Cara Creaby, 29, had
to examine hours of
“harrowing” footage
while investigating the
rape of three young girls.
The officer claims she
suffered flashbacks and
nightmares, her sex life
was ruined, and she was
diagnosed with post
traumatic stress disorder.
She is said to have asked
her bosses for help while
investigating disabled
paedophile Michael
D’Costa, who was later
jailed for 16 years.
But the Hemel Hempstead
policewoman was allegedly
told to carry on “as best
she could”.
Harmful
In a High Court case,
thought to be the first of its
kind, she is suing the force
for the “psychiatric injury”
she allegedly suffered.
She had to support and
interview the victims and
they formed an “emotional
bond”, but she had to
watch the clips for “at
least” eight hours at a
time, it is said.
Her legal team claims her
injuries were caused by
“excessive viewing of
harmful photographic
and video material”.
There were no offers of
help, risk assessment or
consideration of how
to share the workload,
they added.
Scotland Yard said: “A
claim for damages due to
psychiatric injury, dated
22 February 2018, has
been received by the
Metropolitan Police
Service. The claim is
currently being reviewed
by solicitors acting on
behalf of the Met.”

The gunman, wearing a hi-vis jacket, fled on a bike

Ex-England captain Gerrard, who has just been

Long Reach Nail Scissors
Long-reach toenail scissors for
people who can’t touch their toes
Do you have trouble bending? Or just find
you’re not as supple as you used to be? In
either case, our long-reach toenail scissors
can make an awkward chore a great deal
easier. Their extended shank lengthens
your reach, so less bending and twisting
are required. The moulded finger grips
mean improved cutting control, while the
blades are super-sharp to cope with the
toughest, hardest nails.
In addition, one blade is serrated to grip
the nail securely as it’s being trimmed, and
both are angled for a more effective cutting
action. Made to last from stainless steel,
our long-reach toenail scissors measure
L20cm with 3.5cm blades.

Social media also gives youngsters a distorted body image, according to the Next Steps study.
Psychotherapist Susanna Abse
said: “Millennials have been
brought up in a culture of hyper-
sexuality. Women are always up
for it with beautiful hard bodies
and the men have permanent
erections. That is daunting.”
She added: “The fear for young
men is of being humiliated, plus
the fear of exposure in your

turned round and said, “So, madam, is

PRISONERS can now study to learn Latin, captain a yacht

A string of new courses have been added to the Prisoners’ Education Trust’s curriculum for 2018.
Others among the 100-plus courses on offer to the UK’s
jail population are Latin for beginners and dog grooming.
The “Yachtmaster Ocean” course involves the study “of
the sun, moon and stars, and how to sail by them”.
16,000 young people since they
were 14. The study interviewed
millennials and found the longer
they wait, the less likely they are
to ever have sex. More than 90%
who had lost their virginity had
done so by the age of 19.
Between the ages of 23 and 26
just over 1% took the plunge.

AN angry driver was seen

just like Basil Fawlty in
the classic TV comedy.
Ian Hearne, 40, was
spotted by a neighbour
hitting the car with a
snooker cue.
Drunk Hearne returned
from a night out – and flew
into a rage because he was
locked out of his home.
A court heard how
“angry and frustrated”
Hearne took the cue from
the car and thrashed it
just like John Cleese in
Fawlty Towers.
He was stopped by
neighbour Paul Tobone, 33,
in the Swansea street but
then began swinging the
cue towards him too.
Tobone went to his home
to grab his ornamental
Samurai sword before a
fracas in the road.
Hearne pleaded guilty
to affray and possessing
an offensive weapon and
Tobone admitted affray
and possessing a bladed
article. Both men will be
sentenced later at
Swansea Crown Court.
Judge Neale Thomas
said: “This was a fight
with weapons which
would have terrified
people living nearby.”

It uses bugs found on

after falling ill while doing a

Medics were able to treat the

“I lay down on the sofa expecting

what was wrong.
“Then someone noticed two tiny
puncture marks just above my ankle
and identified them as a spider bite.
“They guessed it was a false widow
– they have a reputation as biters.
“I think I might have kicked its

“So many infections are found in

When you spend years saving up for
that special trip, the last thing you want
to find is that your travel insurance is
unaffordable or takes a hefty lump away
from your spending money. That’s what
happened to reader Mr Saw, 72 from
Cumbria, who had been saving for a
trip to Malaysia for his 50th wedding
anniversary.
Mr Saw said: “After booking the
holiday, we decided to check with
SAGA, and I couldn’t believe it when
they told me that my travel insurance
would cost almost £600. After seeing
Payingtoomuch.com advertised, I
decided to give them a call and spoke
to a friendly and helpful travel insurance
team member who went through the
questions with me. I was thrilled to be told
that the policy would only cost £239, over
£300 cheaper than SAGA quoted me.”
Chris Pannell from Payingtoomuch.com
said: “We use several travel insurance
underwriters that we work closely with to
ensure that our clients receive excellent
value for money.”

GOLDEN BOY: Jerome hails top scorer Vydra
Morais down
and then out
DERBY..............4 BARNSLEY......1
JOSE MORAIS paid the
price for Barnsley’s
relegation after his
three-month reign was
ended.
The Portuguese boss
(below), along with
assistants Dimas Teixeira
and Joao Cunha, was axed,
having won three of his 15
matches since arriving at
Oakwell. Within an hour of
Barnsley’s two-year
stay in the second
tier ending, the
club activated
a relegation
clause in
Morais’
contract.
A club
statement
read: “The Club
acknowledges
the disappointment
of relegation and
shares the view of
supporters that this has
been a disappointing
season of results.
“The aim is now to have a
proactive summer both on
and off the pitch in order to
gain promotion back to the
Championship.”
Derby confirmed their
play-off spot – and will
meet Fulham – after a win
which was never in doubt
after Cameron Jerome’s
■ by TIM EVERSHED
14th-minute opener. The
visitors pushed for a
leveller but always looked
vulnerable on the break as
Jerome turned provider
for Matej Vydra.
Vydra’s 21st goal of the
season won him the
league’s Golden Boot and
sparked a three-goal
second-half blitz.
David Nugent
and Tom
Lawrence
extended the
home side’s
lead before
George
Moncur
bagged a late
consolation.
Rams boss
Gary Rowett said:
“Our attacking players
have all come to the fore
when we need them to.
Jerome has four in three
games, Nugent has a few
goals recently and Vydra
has been a threat all
season long.
“We looked very, very
comfortable as the game
went on and if you leave
space for us we can be
clinical. We showed no
nerves and that’s what
pleased me the most.”
Dean pleas
to best Bees
Warnock claims the
only goal that matters
IT WAS tense and not
pretty – but to Cardiff
fans it was as beautiful
as a nil-nil can get.
The Bluebirds were expected to
park up somewhere in mid-table
when the campaign began but have
slipstreamed into the Premier
League behind champions Wolves.
Supporters, who had not seen
their stadium this full since their
last ill-fated 12 months in the top
flight four years ago, could not
contain their delight as the goals
went in – 120 miles away in
Birmingham.
Fulham’s 3-1 defeat, ironically
masterminded by old Swansea
boss Garry Monk, was where the
meaningful action was happening.
The nearest Cardiff came to a
goal was when Junior Hoilett
curled a 20-yard effort narrowly
wide early on.
Two other penalty appeals were
waved away as the Bluebirds
came flying out of the blocks but
as the clock ticked down, the home
side’s chances dried up.
Shreds
All they had to show in the
second half was a Kenneth Zohore
shot over the bar and a weak effort
from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing.
That summed up all the nerves
and anxieties on show.
But the home fans were
already celebrating by then as
news came through that
Fulham’s 23-match unbeaten
run was being ripped to shreds
on a day when they had to win.
Reading fans also had their
minds elsewhere. But the failings
of other strugglers meant all they
had to do was dig in for a point to
be comfortably clear of the scrap
below them.

energy on the sidelines, but he cut

match, content to let fans wallow
in the misfortune of others.
Warnock was expected to bring
stability when he arrived midway
through last season.
But few could have anticipated
the old touchline warrior would
bring this level of success in his
first full season in charge.
His teams rarely please those who
hold their noses in the air when the
boots fly and the sweat drips.
But his up-and-at-them style has
proved too difficult for most of the
Championship to handle, even if
it’s in marked contrast to the
football on offer at Wolves.
Reading, given their own
relegation worries, were content
to take a point.
They were happy to stand off
mostly, as were Cardiff in the
latter stages, as scorelines
elsewhere decided matters for
both clubs.
By the time jubilant
Cardiff fans invaded the
pitch before the final
whistle, both clubs knew
well enough which
division they would
be playing in next
season.
But the prize
that Cardiff
yearned for
was secure
by then.

Jokanovic said: “We can’t be

“Birmingham were fighting for

We’re a good team. We need to
be strong and follow our style.
“I always believe we can win the
next game and just because
we’ve lost one game I won’t
change my mind.”
Brum only needed to avoid
defeat to stay up and did what
they needed with a determined
display.
A brilliant cross from Wes
Harding was rammed in by
Jutkiewicz in the 15th minute and
two minutes later keeper Marcus
Bettinelli pulled out a brilliant
block with his feet to prevent
further damage.
But Dean converted with a
close-range header just before
half-time and from then on Fulham
were always up against it.
Blues boss Garry Monk

“We have competed in

“We sold our best

Adam Le Fondre looked
to have been Bolton’s
saviour by stepping off
the bench to volley Bolton
ahead after 67 minutes.
But Ben Osborn and
Jack Colback stunned the
hosts to put Nottingham
Forest in front.
Bolton needed a win to
be sure of survival and
Wheater and 38-year-old
striker Wilbraham came
up trumps.
Forest boss Aitor
Karanka said: “It is

“When you are playing
for nothing, I don’t want to
say you are not at 100 per

we had to win but Birmingham

Jokanovic is refusing to get

AARON WILBRAHAM was
the last-gasp hero as
Bolton staged an
astonishing fightback to
save their skins.
Bolton were facing up to
a third relegation in seven
seasons before sinking
Nottingham Forest late on
to keep themselves up.
The Trotters were trailing
2-1 and heading back to
League One but David
Wheater equalised in the
87th minute before veteran
striker Wilbraham’s header
60 seconds later sparked
wild scenes.

Sheffield United were in

Sharp and a Kieron

34th minute.
Boos echoed round
Ashton Gate at half-time
but the Robins rallied to
restore some pride.

free-kick to set up a

Chris Coleman’s sacking.

Blistering Blues in hot

AS THE temperature at
Stamford Bridge soared
Chelsea kept up the
Champions League
heat on Liverpool and
Tottenham.
The Blues can still pip both clubs to
a place at Europe’s top table, thanks
to a 32nd-minute winner from Olivier
Giroud.
A run of five successive wins has
put Antonio Conte’s side in the once
unlikely position of possibly
finishing in the top four, as they trail
Spurs by just two points.
A home win over Huddersfield on
Wednesday will ensure they stay in
with a shout when they play their last
game of the season at former boss
Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle on Sunday.
Liverpool would face Brighton that
day needing three points to ensure
they deny the Blues.
Spurs’ superior goal difference
means they probably need just a win
and a draw at home to Newcastle and
Leicester to ensure another crack at
the Champions League.

It has made the race for Europe far
more interesting than anyone might
have imagined.
It is hard to get away from the
feeling that Jurgen Klopp and
Liverpool’s heroics in the Champions
League, where they face Real Madrid
in the final, has seen them take their
eye off the ball domestically.
They were a pale shadow of the
outfit who have scored 12 goals in
their last four games in the
Champions League.
Mo Salah, in particular, was
disappointing, looking more like the
player who failed to make an impact
at Chelsea than the star who has
terrorised defences all season and
won two best-player awards.
The most impressive performer was
one-time Liverpool loanee Victor
Moses, who gave Andrew Robertson a
runaround in the sunshine.
Sadio Mane was the biggest threat
for Klopp’s men, twice testing
Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois

with well-struck shots before the
break. Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko
should have done better with a
header from a Moses pull-back, but
sent his effort about a yard wide of
the far post.
In the 32nd minute, Giroud
showed him how to finish with the
head, getting a perfect glance onto a
left-footed ball in – again from Moses
– which took a slight deflection off
Mane to tee it up perfectly for the
Frenchman.
It made it a highly respectable
five goals in eight starts at Chelsea
for Giroud since his £18m move
from Arsenal in January.
He raced to celebrate with David
Luiz, who was sitting behind the
Blues bench.
Seconds later another former
Gunner, Cesc Fabregas, sent a shot
from an acute angle just wide of the
far post.
It was not to be Salah’s day and
unusually he was, correctly, booked
for diving by Anthony Taylor as Gary
Cahill covered the Egyptian’s run.
Liverpool’s anticipated assault in
the second half never materialised,
despite plenty of tactical tweaks by
Klopp.
Eden Hazard went on a brilliant
jinking run into the box in the 56th
minute, but his shot from a very tight
angle was blocked by Loris Karius.
Despite all Liverpool’s efforts they
could not test Courtois and it was
Marcos Alonso who almost scored
next, sending a sizzling volley, from
yet another Moses delivery, just wide
of the far post.
Substitute Dominic Solanke had a
great late chance to head an equaliser
from Mane’s cross.
However, under pressure from the
muscular Antonio Rudiger, he missed
by some distance, leaving Liverpool,
and Spurs, sweating.

A real downer for Clough
NIGEL CLOUGH had to pick his
broken Burton players off the
floor after the cruellest of
last-day heartbreaks.
Burton were on course to defy
the odds and stay up once Hope
Akpan struck midway through
the second half.
As the seconds to the full-time
whistle ticked along, the Brewers
looked safe with a point as
Bolton were losing to Clough’s
old club Nottingham Forest.
But the Trotters snatched a
dramatic comeback win, while a
late Louis Moult goal for Preston
only added to Burton’s agony.
Brewers boss Clough said:

players in there but we’re down
because of a reason.
“And the reason is that over 46
games we haven’t been good
enough, it’s as simple as that.
“We didn’t get enough points.
We had too many draws and
wasted too many opportunities.
“Bolton were always going to
be the problem. You always worry
when your rivals play against a
team with nothing to play for.”
Preston went into the clash
hoping to sneak into the
play-offs but they needed Derby
to lose at home to Barnsley. That
didn’t come close to happening,
even after Callum Robinson had
headed North End into a
26th-minute lead.
Billy Bodin’s red card shortly
after the break and Akpan’s
strike put Burton in control.
But matters would be taken out
of the Brewers’ hands just down
the road in Lancashire before
Moult wrapped up the win.
Preston boss Alex Neil said: “I
take no pride in sending a team
down, but we can look back with
some pride at what we’ve
achieved this year.”

OUR GOLDEN
GREAT
Wenger doesn’t go
potless after all...
ARSENE WENGER bowed
out with a trophy after all
at the Emirates – and
hinted he could be back.
A double from Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang plus goals from
Alexandre Lacazette, Alex Iwobi and
Sead Kolasinac gave Wenger a
five-star send-off in his final home
game as Arsenal boss.
But what happened afterwards will
live longer in the memory, with
Wenger being presented with the gold
trophy awarded to the ‘Invincibles’ in
2003-04. It’s his to keep now.
After all the resentment felt in
recent years by many Gunners fans
who wanted him out, the supporters
made him feel loved at the end.
There were banners in the stands,
‘Merci Arsene’ T-shirts on every seat,
a guard of honour, and a noisy 59,540
crowd inside a stadium which has felt
pretty empty in recent weeks.
It was Wenger’s 606th home
match in charge of Arsenal. There
will not be another.
His first, in October 1996, was so
long ago, Burnley boss Sean Dyche
was playing in the third tier that day.
Sad
But it was still a bittersweet
goodbye. Arsenal will finish this
season with their lowest points total
under the Frenchman.
And the little gold trophy he was
given to mark the end of his 22-year
reign is not the one he wanted to end
it all on.
“I will always be an Arsenal fan,” he
said in his speech to fans on the pitch.
“I will miss you. Thank you for being
such an important part of my life.
Hope to see you soon. Bye bye.”
At his post-match press conference,
he said: “It was a very sad day. I
have worked on every single
part of this stadium. It is part
of myself.
“I will cherish every minute
I was here. But it is a new start
for me, even if they were not
always happy, the fans respect
me. I take it as a big compliment.
“I will have to see where I put the
trophy. It was a surprise for me.
“I would be happy to sit in the
North Bank but it depends if I work
somewhere else or not.
“The only positive of that is that I
can shout at the next manager!
Sometimes, to make people happy
is to go somewhere else.”
For a while it was like the good old
days. There was a rousing rendition
of the old favourite “One-nil, to the
Arsenal” when Aubameyang fired

them in front after 14 minutes
following good work from Iwobi and
Lacazette.
Iwobi then fed Hector Bellerin and
the full-back picked out Lacazette
with a cross he met on the volley to
make it 2-0.
Burnley had plenty of chances at
the start of the second half but it was
all over when Kolasinac smashed one
into the far corner.
The home fans sang, “There’s only
one Arsene Wenger”, only for
Burnley fans to respond with a
chant of, “You wanted him sacked!”
There was time for Iwobi, the
game’s best player, to begin and end
the move which led to Arsenal’s
fourth and for Aubameyang to strike
again from another Bellerin cross.
But when all is said and done, at
the end of this campaign, it will be
Burnley who are celebrating and not
Wenger, with Dyche spoken of as a
manager-of-the-season contender.
It would be wrong to remember the
Frenchman for the failures of years
like this at Arsenal but a failure is
what this season has been.
As for all the emotion shown to
Wenger by the fans, Dyche summed it
all up best, saying: “He probably
enjoyed it ... but thought it
would have been nice
if it had been a
bit more
often.”

TONY PULIS said he was

Boro’s play-off place had

SHEFF WED.....5 NORWICH.....1
JAMES MADDISON’S
dream move to the Premier
League is in the balance
after he left Hillsborough
on crutches.
The £25m-rated Norwich
midfielder, who has been
linked with Manchester
City, Liverpool and Arsenal,
was forced off with a knee
injury in the first 10 minutes
following an innocuous slip.
Canaries boss Daniel
Farke is now waiting on the
results of a scan, but the
fear is that the England
Under-21 international
might not be ready for the
start of next season.
Maddison has hit 15 goals
this season and Norwich
were ready to sell this
summer because their
Premier League parachute
payments are about to end.
Farke said: “We have to
wait on James. It’s not
good. There’s something
with the knee.
“It could be ligaments.
I’m pretty concerned about
his health, because it’s
important for him not to be

“Perhaps the summer

Kosovan striker Atdhe
Nuhiu celebrated his first
treble for Wednesday as
he took his tally to nine in

He headed in Adam
Reach’s cross in the first
half, then swept into an
empty net to make it 4-0
after a collision between
keeper Angus Gunn and
centre-back Christophe
Zimmermann, before
converting a late penalty.
Fernando Forestieri had
slotted in the Owls’ second
from a weak Zimmermann
back pass, with Frederico
Venancio volleying in the
third and Timm Klose
scoring for the visitors.
Nuhiu is out of contract
this summer and Owls

IAN HOLLOWAY insists he
has no intention of leaving

There has been speculation the QPR boss is on his

But Holloway says he is
the right man for the job.
He said: “Not in a million
years [would I leave]. Why
would I do that? I’ve got a
year left on my contract
and if they want to speak to
me about a longer one,
then I’d do that all day long.
“I don’t know what
support I’ve got from
above. It’s funny what
things are written. Most of
it is bulls**t, to be honest.
“Everyone wants to get to
the Premier League. Our
owners might too, but they
know where we were.
“I have all the confidence
in the world that they
■ by TOM MASTON
understand how well
we’ve done.”
Leeds took the lead in
the first half when Kemar
Roofe hooked in an
overhead kick for his 14th
of the season.
And the home side made
the points safe two
minutes into the second
period when Kalvin
Phillips latched onto Joe
Lumley’s poor clearance
to curl in from 20 yards.
It was just Paul Heckingbottom’s fourth win in 16
games since taking charge.
He said: “We want to
make major surgery with
the minimum amount of
signings.
“I want to make big
changes to the dynamic.
How many signings we
need for that? We’ll see.”
FIVE months on from that Pep
talk, Nathan Redmond finally
delivered what could yet prove to
be a Premier League lifeline for
Southampton.
Redmond was on the receiving end of a very
public on-field ear-bashing from Pep Guardiola
when Saints lost at Manchester City last year.
Etihad boss Guardiola later claimed he was
only telling Redmond, 24, what a big fan he is of
the exciting winger.
And even though a cruel last-gasp equaliser
cost the Saints a much-needed win at Goodison,
Redmond’s first goal in almost a year may yet be
enough to keep them up.
With a crunch clash with fellow strugglers
Swansea looming tomorrow, Redmond said: “To
get a goal after most of the year has gone takes a
little weight off my shoulders, but not the whole
weight, because I feel like we’ve had two points
taken off us.

Villa out

Bruce’s
troubles
MILLWALL .......... 1
ASTON VILLA .... 0
■ by IAN WINROW
STEVE BRUCE made an
emotional return to the
dug-out just 48 hours after
the death of his mum.
His Aston Villa side were
already guaranteed fourth
place, but the manager, who
also lost his dad three
months ago, was back on the
touchline to oversee the final
league game of the campaign.
A first-half penalty from
Millwall’s Shaun Williams
denied a much-changed Villa
line-up the chance of victory,
while keeper Mark Bunn
saved a second Lions
spot-kick from Lee Gregory.
But assistant Colin
Calderwood hopes returning
to work can help Bruce
through a difficult time.
He said: “Steve’s had a real
tough time from January
onwards. We will give him the
help we can. He’s the main
man, everyone knows at the
club he is the leader.
“And we’ll get through the
few days and help him as
best we can moving forward.
Style
“He definitely wanted to be
here. We understand that
sometimes that bring a
moment of relief coming to
your work.”
Millwall, who finished eighth,
needed a mathematical
miracle if they were to sneak
into the play-offs.
But boss Neil Harris
demanded they see the
season out in style.
And he got the win he
wanted when Williams struck
in the 30th minute after Jed
Wallace had been brought
down by Henri Lansbury.
Millwall could have doubled
their lead in the 85th minute
when James Chester handled
from Freddie Onyedinma’s
header, only for Bunn to deny
Gregory.
Harris said: “I told the
players I was very proud of
them for this year.
“We need to try to improve
over the summer, which
won’t be easy, but that’s the
challenge.
“Are we going to go out and
spend £15m on a striker, or
£6m on a striker? No, that’s
the reality of this club.”

LEE BOWYER wants Charlton

Joe Thompson’s goal, who

“For me it was more about

CARLOS HAS NO FEAR OF DROP
CARLOS CARVALHAL has no
fear over Swansea’s ability to
home in on survival.
The Welsh club’s top-flight status is on
the line after dropping back into the
relegation zone ahead of tomorrow’s
do-or-die clash against Southampton.
Ryan Fraser’s deflected first-half goal
means Saints’ visit to the Liberty
Stadium effectively becomes a relegation
play-off.
Carvalhal said: “After a game that we
lose, everyone is sad of course. But
tomorrow is another day.
“We will react and Tuesday, we must be
at the top. This is the main point. And
they know about that. They know they
must react very fast.

“Since we arrive, all the games we play

“Possibly the cup game against
Tottenham was the game that was hard
for us. All the others we dominated and
were better than our opponents.
“Even Chelsea, if you saw the game,
you can see we dominated the game and
we could achieve much more.
“I don’t have any reason to doubt we
can do it on Tuesday. My players will
give the maximum, the fans will give
the maximum.”
Swansea were toothless throughout
and never looked like getting back into
the game after Fraser struck from a
well-worked 37th-minute free-kick.

“You just concentrate on training hard
and performing at the weekend.
“Where there is hope there is belief.
Tuesday is a massive game, we need to
perform as well as we can and we need
the crowd behind us as we are in a rut at
the moment.”
The win cements Bournemouth’s
place in the Premier League for a
fourth season but manager Eddie
Howe reckons it will get tougher.
He said: “This has been our hardest
challenge so far because everyone has
expected us to do it.
“You can feel the atmosphere around

“That’s the challenge we face going

“Whoever comes up with them, you

Watford clinched their Premier
League survival to give boss
Javi Gracia some much-needed
breathing space.
But all the post-match chatter
focused on the uncertainty
surrounding opposite number
Benitez, who is a candidate to
replace Claude Puel at Leicester if
the Frenchman is sacked.
Benitez wants to stay at St James’
Park but has been saying he needs
assurances about the direction and
ambitions of the club for months.
The Spaniard has one year left
to run on his contract and talks
remain ongoing with the board.
But Benitez (left) has now raised
the stakes by demanding clarity
before the season finishes.
Asked if there would come a point
in the summer when his future
would need to be sorted, he said:
“As soon as possible.
“What needs to happen for us to

to do the right things. The right
things means to clarify our
ambitions and go from there.
“It’s very clear. All the fans have
the same feeling. It is something we
need to clarify.

“I would like to compete for
something more. To be sure that
you can come here and say that we
can win.
“Where you go to play against
a top side and you say, ‘If we do
well, we can win’. It’s not that
you go there and lose 1-0 and we
keep the goal difference.
“To compete we have to do the
right things. We cannot be thinking
our position is that we are safe –
52,000 fans deserve that this team
is competing for the top eight.”
Over to you, then, Mr Ashley.
Benitez insists his contract
situation is not distracting his
players, but they looked pretty
distracted in the first half as the
Hornets tore them apart to secure
their survival.
Watford picked up a first win
in eight games thanks to early
strikes from Roberto Pereyra
and then Andre Gray.
Magpies keeper Martin Dubravka
then saved Troy Deeney’s penalty
but Ayoze Perez’s 55th-minute
strike failed to spark a comeback.
Midfielder Will Hughes was at the
heart of everything Watford did,
playing a part in both goals, and he
had the crowd chanting about how
he should be in the England squad.
Hughes said: “It’s very early to be
talking in those terms. I’ve still got
to prove myself in this league. You
can’t expect to be called up on the
back of one or two good games.”

WES MORGAN shot down
suggestions player power
will see under-fire boss
Claude Puel exit Leicester.
The Foxes captain insists his teammates are trying to implement Puel’s
ideas – although this latest limp display
suggested anything but.
Leicester have won just four of their
last 19 games and their half-hearted
so-called lap of appreciation looked as
committed as their dismal display, in
stark contrast to the wild celebrations
that greeted their shock title win in 2016.
Control
Puel’s methods and his distant approach
have left question marks over the future
of the Frenchman.
Morgan said: “We are the players. We
have no control over what happens
upstairs and what the board, chairman,
whoever is in charge, wants to do.
“Basically we go out there and implement the manager’s ideas and that is all
we can do.”
If Leicester were poor before Joao
Mario fired West Ham ahead in the
34th minute, they were awful after it.
Mark Noble’s stunning 64th-minute
strike clinched West Ham’s first win in
five games to ensure the Hammers will
be staying up for another year. Noble, 30,
said: “It was my best by far. I thought if

I could catch it on the side volley and aim
towards the far stick then it might go in
and I just caught it nicely.”
The skipper, though, admits things
have to change at the East End club
if they are to move forward, with
fans upset with the board.
“A lot of stuff needs to change. I am
really hoping and I am convinced it will
during the summer,” he added.
Foxes boss Puel understands the fans’
frustrations after their challenge for
Europe tailed off. But it remains to be
seen whether the club’s Thai owners –
who backed him on Friday – will give
him time to improve things.
Puel said: “We had the possibility to
fight for a European place and it was
crazy. A lot of people believed in us.
“It is a disappointment for our fans,
without the possibility to perform in our
last game and give this feeling.”
Hammers boss David Moyes admits he
has to find out if the board want him to
continue. He said: “I’ll wait. It’s not going
to change. After the end of the season I’ll
find out what’s happening.”
But he feels for Puel, who was only
appointed in November.
He added: “I’ve got massive sympathy.
Totally. I feel for any manager. It’s a little
bit about expectations.”

■ by STEVE ACTESON
the second leveller from 20
yards with eight minutes left.
Juventus are one point from
their 34th Serie A title after
Napoli stumbled to a 2-2 home
draw with Torino yesterday.
Napoli had been just a point
behind Juve after beating the
leaders 1-0 on April 22.
But they lost last week and
threw points away against
Torino, despite twice leading
through Dries Mertens and
substitute Marek Hamsik.
Juve are now six points clear
after beating Bologna 3-1.
Even if they lose at Roma next
Sunday their last game is at
home to relegated Hellas Verona.

Wood book first
Wembley date
WATFORD loanee Michael
Folivi chested Boreham Wood
to their first Wembley visit in
the club’s 70-year history.
The 20-year-old bundled
home the most important goal
of his young career after Bruno
Andrade hit the bar from 30
yards to book a play-off final
date with Tranmere on Saturday.
As the Sutton defence
hesitated, the striker calmly
waited for the ball to drop
before chesting it over the line
two minutes from time.
But the Hertfordshire
part-timers had to fight for
their lives to keep out Sutton
in stoppage time before
booking their national stadium
place with a 3-2 victory.
Sutton sub Ross Lafayette
scored for both teams as
United, who finished third in
the league, slipped up on their
artificial pitch. Micky Mellon
■ by GRAHAM NICKLESS
hopes there will be no
Wembley wobbles when
Tranmere return to the stadium
where they lost to Forest
Green in last season’s final.
James Norwood netted twice
as Rovers beat Ebbsfleet, who
had Dave Winfield sent off after
a mass brawl, 4-2 in extra-time
in a cracking semi in front of
8,898 fans at Prenton Park.
Mellon, who led Fleetwood to
League Two in 2012, said:
“Nothing is done yet so we are
not celebrating anything.
“Boreham Wood have shown
remarkable fighting spirit to
reach the final and we have to
match that on Saturday.
“This job should come with a
health warning because that
semi-final had tension and
passion – everything football
should be.”

MAC’S EURO PLEDGE
■ by STEVE ACTESON
DEREK McINNES says his Aberdeen side
will do their best to deny new Rangers
boss Steven Gerrard European football
next season.
A win against Rangers at Pittodrie
tomorrow night will seal second place
behind champions Celtic.
If Rangers then lose at Hibs next Sunday,
they will finish fourth and have to rely on
Celtic beating Motherwell in the Scottish
Cup Final to earn a place in the Europa
League qualifiers.
McInnes said: “Hopefully, with a win on
Tuesday, that secures European football,
which is the first box to try and tick.”

David Bates marked his last appearance
at Ibrox before moving to Hamburg with
the only goal as Rangers beat Kilmarnock
on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers slammed the Tynecastle
pitch as Celtic handed Hearts their first
home defeat of the season yesterday.
Rodgers, whose side won 3-1, said: “We
couldn’t play our normal game today.
“The pitch, I’m actually a little
embarrassed with to be honest, for
Scottish football and the standards you’re
trying to create throughout the country.”

CITY
TEARFUL Jack Butland
slammed the “farcical”
decisions which have helped
seal Stoke’s relegation.
The £50m-rated England keeper pulled no
punches as he ripped into the Potters’
seemingly shambolic recruitment policy.
Butland says while those in the dressing
room accepted their part in a horrid season,
it was the missing players which had cost
them dear.
And he blasted the process which
allowed big-money so-called star players
to have disappeared off the radar.
Record £18.3m signing Giannelli Imbula,
Kevin Wimmer (£18m) and Saido Berahino
(£12m) have all flopped along with the likes
of Jese and Ibrahim Afellay.

Honest
The No.1 was in no mood for holding back
after Palace – who fell behind to Xherdan
Shaqiri’s free-kick – broke Stoke hearts in
the second half through James McArthur
and Patrick van Aanholt.
Butland said: “I think the whole recruitment process needs looking at to be honest.
We’ve gone into a game here – and over the
last few months – with half the squad dotted
around the world, not even involved.
“Some are on loans. But then there’s
been players who aren’t even part of the
squad for all kinds of reasons, whether
it be discipline or lack of performance.
“It’s not because they were playing at the
top of their game that’s for sure. If they
were, they’d be here. Too many of the recent
investments have been completely unused
and that’s unacceptable. It’s been farcical
really.”
Butland sobbed out on the pitch, too stung
to even think about the World Cup or where
his future may lie. He looks certain to be off
this summer, with Wolves, Liverpool,
Arsenal ready to try and land the 25-year-old
shot-stopper.
He added: “This club’s got a massive place
in my heart and it hurts because I’ve given
everything and it’s a horrible, horrible
feeling.
“It’s difficult to take because the lads in
that changing room are the ones who have
to take the responsibility, although they
have not had a lot of help from elsewhere.
“Barring injuries, it’s certainly the lowest
point of my footballing career. It’s horrible.
It doesn’t feel real and I don’t want it to be
real, but unfortunately it is.”
Butland is backing boss Paul Lambert
to lead them straight back up next
season, adding: “He’s had an extremely
difficult job. He inherited a squad where,
unfortunately, there was ill-discipline
and players you can not rely on. I believe
he’s the right man.”
Opposite number Roy Hodgson hardly
needs a vote of confidence after engineering
an astonishing turnaround at Palace.
Bottom of the table with no points and no
goals when Hodgson took over, his transformation has been quite extraordinary.
McArthur said: “He is a brilliant manager.
He has come in and has made us more solid,
and sometimes when you become more solid
you lose that attacking threat. But we have
not – we look even more dangerous.
“His experience has been instrumental in
us staying up. We lost in the first few games
5-0 and 4-0 against Manchester City and
Manchester United and he didn’t panic.
The job he has done has been remarkable.”

TOP STUFF:
■
Women tend to
climax more when
they’re on top. Pick
a park bench and
re-kindle the romance
in your life, far left
and see how long you can go.
The record, by the way, is
58 hours!
MAKE A SPLASH: Flash
the flesh to your partner
by breaking out that summer
wardrobe.
Lots of stars, like Rosie
Huntington-Whiteley,
have
new swimwear ranges – and
you don’t have to go to the pool
to try them on.
What could be sexier than
your own personal swim party
indoors? Or how about getting
a cheap inflatable pool for
the garden and enjoying it
together?
Alternatively, invent your
own costume drama with
fancy dress outfits.
For example, you could
pretend you’re joining the
mile high club in air hostess
and pilot gear.
A HORNY HISTORY:
Remember that first date,
or the time you first made love
to your partner?
Recreate the romance by
heading back to the same
G
H
location, by cooking up the
identical meal you enjoyed on
that occasion or buying the
same movie you canoodled to.
GET MOVING: Whether
it’s playing an active video
game, going for a walk or
getting on your bike,
doing some exercise
is likely to lead
to sex.
Research in
The Journal
Of
Sexual
Medicine has
found
that
women enjoyed a 150%
increase
in
genital arousal following a
20-minute cardio
session,
while
cycling at high intensity has been linked with
higher sexual function.
CHANGE IT UP: When
did you last go to the zoo
or a funfair?
A study published in the
Journal Of Personality and
I
J
Social
Psychology
found
couples who engaged in new
activities had greater satisfaction in their relationships.
Even having a flutter could
do the trick. According to
psychologist Tracey Cox, winning causes a rush of
adrenaline
which
can make people
more aroused.
SAUCE IT
UP: Thousands of us
will be hitting
the
seaside.
But whether
or
not
you’re going to
be down on the
beach, take inspiration from the old
tradition of saucy
postcards. Get out those
skimpy undies and recreate
some of the classic scenes
with your partner, whether
it’s having an “accident” with
your ice cream, or showing off
those stocking tops.
K
Ask each
L FANTASISE:
other to read out passages
from an erotic book or ask
each
other
about
your
raunchiest dreams.
A poll by Lovehoney found
that three-quarters of women
and over half of men have
played out a fantasy they’d
found in a book and around
two thirds of both blokes and
females have acted out their
sexual dreams.
BANGIN’ TUNES: Crank
up some beats. Boffins at
McGill University in Canada
found listening to music
releases the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine, helping to increase libido.
GET IN POLE POSITION: There’s nothing
like pleasing your other half
in the sack... and hoping
they’ll return the favour.
Learn what positions are
their favourite. Research
shows women tend to get
the most orgasms on

is a hit with guys.

TELLY MOVIES
STAR RATINGS
*****Don’t miss it ****Good ***Average
**Time filler *Garbage!
❑
KUNG FU PANDA 2 (2011) *** BBC2,
10.10am Animated comedy sequel. Can
martial arts master panda Po defeat an evil
peacock with dastardly plans? Voiced by Jack
Black and Gary Oldman.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE (1987) ****
Channel 4, 12.20pm Fantasy adventure.
A boy becomes fixated by his granddad’s
magic tales, centred on a bold stable-boy

prince. Stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Chris

OPEN SEASON (2006) *** Channel 5,

AND
THE
CHIPMUNKS:
CHIPWRECKED (2011) ** Channel 5,
3.55pm Comedy sequel. The warbling rodents
desperately look for a way to return to civilisation
after they get stranded on a desert island. Stars
Jason Lee and Jenny Slate, with the voices of
Justin Long and Matthew Gray Gubler.
NOTTING HILL (1999) **** ITV, 10.20pm
Romantic comedy. Hugh Grant is a very
Hugh Grant-like bookshop owner who falls for
Julia Roberts’ glamorous Hollywood star, but
then has to deal with the downside of dating a
celeb. Also stars Rhys Ifans, Emma Chambers,
James Dreyfus and Gina McKee.
PAPILLON (1973) **** BBC2, 11pm Factbased drama. Steve McQueen plays Henri
“Papillon” Charriere, sentenced to life for a
murder he didn’t commit and determined to
escape from maximum-security Devil’s Island,
the former leper colony where he’ll otherwise

Hoffman, Anthony Zerbe, Don Gordon and
George Coulouris.
LAYER CAKE (2004) *** Channel 5,

Cranham and Sienna Miller.
❑
I’M clearly not right in the
head, because personally I
thought the ending to Peter Kay’s
Car Share – where John and
Kayleigh failed to get together –
was perfect. What made that show
so brilliant, surely, was the fact it
was beautifully rooted in real life.
So a real-life-type ending – things
NOT working out like they do in
the movies, the man and the lady
NOT driving off together into the
sunset – seemed spot-on. Y’know,
like, dead poignant and that.
Shows how much I know,
though, because tens of
thousands of viewers then went
to the trouble of signing an online
petition (and you know how hard
THAT is, what with having to
actually click a button and all) and
demanded more – including (it
implied) a happier ending.
Kay, as we know, eventually
agreed to their demands. So
he’s delivering one last regular
episode later his month, rounding
the story off. And, yes, despite
those misgivings of mine,
I can’t wait to see it.
But before that we have
tonight’s much publicised special,
PETER KAY’S CAR SHARE
UNSCRIPTED (10pm, BBC1),

hilariously making stuff up as
they go along. Comedy genius at
its most instinctive.
TONIGHT and tomorrow,
Channel 4’s GENDERQUAKE
(9pm) sees 11 people, each
with a different gender identity,
shacking up together for a week.
They include straight Filomena, 27,
whose traditional views
cause a stir. “I don’t understand
how someone born male can
feel like a female,” she says.
“How do you know what it
feels like to be a woman?”

JUST JANE
I share my girl
with four guys
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
Sister’s
fella so
hateful
Ex can’t
accept
it’s over
MY brother-in-law is
always picking on me.
I can only conclude he
either hates my guts
or secretly loves me.
At a recent family
gathering he was
flirty and funny for
the first hour but
then got drunk and
tore me to shreds.
I made the mistake
of complaining that
I was broke and
deserved to win
the lottery.
He told me millions
of people have it
worse than me and
accused me of being
spoilt and shallow.
In the end, my
brother had to tell him
to back off. Even my
sister hates his guts
and wants a divorce.
My parents are
planning a huge
anniversary party
in September. Should
I tell them what he’s
like in case he kicks
off again?
MY ex-boyfriend won’t
leave me alone. He keeps
trying to get back with
me and is really getting
on my nerves.
The annoying thing is
that he split with me. He
went off with someone
else and broke my heart.
Now he’s single again
(apparently his new
relationship only lasted a
week) and he’s bombarding
me with messages.
Four times now he’s
also come round pleading
for sex, money and a
fresh start.
So far I’ve been strong
but I’m terrified that I’m
going to weaken. My mate
is having a party soon
that I know he’s going to
be at. What if I drink too
much and he pounces?
The other problem is
that he goes to the same
pub as my brothers and
I’m worried that he’ll work
on them too and may
even end up round
here for a nightcap or
late-night session.
Picture posed by models
JANE SAYS: Your
brother-in-law sounds
like a conflicted and
deeply unpleasant man.
If there are problems
in his relationship
with your sister that’s
unfortunate but he has
no right to pick on you.
As for him (possibly)
fancying you, you
should tell him to
leave you alone.
I don’t think you should
hide this information
from your parents.
They’re not fools and
I can’t imagine they
haven’t noticed what
their son-in-law is
capable of, especially
when drunk.
Maybe they’ll think
twice about inviting
him to their party?
Tell your sister you’d
prefer to see her on her
own in future. Does she
need your help to get
out of her marriage,
especially if he’s equally
bullying and unpleasant
behind closed doors?
HAVING
TIME OF
HER LIFE
MY girlfriend is sleeping
with four other blokes.
She gushes that every guy
in her life is different – and
brings something unique.
She couldn’t possibly choose
between us and, apparently, it’s
unreasonable of me to ask her to.
From the hipster who takes her
to cool venues to the city trader
who showers her with designer
gifts, she’s never felt more
popular or cherished.
And if I don’t like it, then I know
what I can do…
When she and I got together last
year she made no mention of the
other guys she regularly sleeps
with. She made me feel special,
like I was the only man in the
world for her, and I fell very
deeply, very quickly.
Humiliation
But then she disappeared on
holiday and it was only on her
return that I discovered she’d
been with a male ex-colleague.
She brushed off my hurt and
humiliation with a brusque: “This
is the 21st century, you know.”
Since then, other lovers have
continued to come out of the
woodwork and I now realise that
I’m the fifth person she regularly
gets naked with.
I’ve told her that she needs to
stop mucking around and commit
herself to me, but she refuses to
settle down.
Whenever we’re together we
have a great time; we enjoy
dinner and sex and holding her in
my arms is just the greatest.
I ask her over and over to be
mine, but she giggles in my face.
She says she’s not interested in
DESOLATE: She makes him feel special but won’t ditch her group of lovers and settle down
settling down when there’s so
much more to do and see. What
she really means is that she’s
having the time of her life and
doesn’t see why I should have
exclusive dibs.
But I don’t think the way she’s
carrying on is right or decent, do
you? Surely she’s being selfish
and irresponsible and needs to
grow up?
JANE SAYS: Your girl is absolutely
right; this is the 21st century and
(unfortunately for you) she’s free
to bed anyone she fancies.
You may not approve of her
lifestyle choices, but as she’s not
fleecing anyone she can carry on
as she likes. The reality is that she
isn’t hiding anything from you.
You realise that you’re one of five
men she beds and if you don’t like
the current situation, then you
know where the door is.
You love this woman and you
want her to love you back, but she
isn’t interested in an exclusive
relationship. No matter how hard
you try, and whatever you throw at
her, she refuses to drop her other
men for you.
Do yourself a favour and back
off. Stop wasting your energy on

Turn your man on
Turn your woman on
an individual who has her own
agenda. You have to start protecting your heart and your feelings.
I realise you’re not ready to give
up on her yet, but how much more
humiliation can you take?
What has she got planned for
this summer? Is she going to be
jetting off to foreign climes with
her rich trader? Or off to festivals
with her hipster dude? How will
you feel when you’re left alone at
home yet again?
Consider your mental and
sexual health. You’ll never find the
kind of partner you crave while
she’s still in your life.
Hate your body?

JANE SAYS: Your ex
sounds manipulative
and desperate.
He realises that he made
a mistake in walking out
on you and is now trying
every trick in the book in
order to lure you back.
I worry that you’re simply
being too nice. I understand
that you were very close
for a very long time but
those days are over.
The old relationship
ended the day he walked
away from you. Now you’re
moving on and he has
to do the same.
If you won’t be able to
trust yourself at that party,
then simply don’t go. As
for your brothers, you must
warn them not to be
manipulated by him.
Sadly, if this man
continues to be a nuisance
to you then you may have
to think about reporting
him to the authorities.
This is no laughing
matter. He needs to be
told clearly to get lost
and leave you alone.
Huge debts
are a shock
MY girlfriend and I recently consulted a mortgage adviser
about buying our first flat together.
When he asked if we had any debts she confessed that she
owes £8,000 on credit cards. I had no idea. Now she’s saying
unless I help her with the repayments she can’t commit to
me. She’s being quite demanding. How does that work?
JANE SAYS: This revelation has to be a massive warning
sign for you. Your girlfriend’s debts aren’t your worry and
you can’t allow yourself to be dragged into her problem.
Why did she wait until that meeting with the mortgage
adviser? Why didn’t she come clean before? Suggest she
checks out nationaldebtline.org; 0808 808 4000 for financial
help. Protect yourself before entering into any kind of
financial arrangement with her.

HEALTH REPORT
L
ANDSCAPE GARDENER
Stan Hitchen, believes that
the properties of FX-Silica
gel have made him pain
free and independent once
again. GEORGE TAYLOR
investigates.
At the age of 63 you’d think
that Stan Hitchen would start
to think about taking life a
little easier. However he’s just
finished a complete renovation
of his new home and not
content with that, he’s also
designed and landscaped his
garden to create ‘a little piece
of heaven’. This is all quite
amazing considering Stan has
been suffering from crippling
arthritis for the last eight years!
“Arthritis runs in the
family… we’ve all suffered with
it” Stan tells me as we sit on
the decking in his garden. “I
knew I’d get it and after forty
years of gardening everyday it
finally struck!”
“THE AGONY LED TO
DEPRESSION!”
Stan suffered with crippling pain
and stiffness in his hands and
knees, which meant delegating
all of the physical work, which
he always relished, to his
younger staff.
“It was heartbreaking. I felt
so useless and started to have
bouts of depression. The antiinflammatories and pain killers
from the doctor hardly had any
effect and the physio treatments
only relaxed the joints for a
short while after each session.”
“MY WIFE SAYS I’M
A NEW MAN”
Then, two years ago, Stan and
his wife, Jeannie, moved into
their dream house. The house
needed a lot of work and the
garden was a ‘bomb site’ as
Stan puts it. However they could
see the enormous potential
and set about slowly doing up
the house.
This is when Stan’s arthritic
pain became excruciating, to
the point that he could hardly
keep a grip on a hammer! And
then, to make things worse,
Jeannie fell from a ladder and
broke her hip very badly. She
spent eight weeks in hospital
and all the work on their dream
home came to a grinding halt.
It was during a visit to the
hospital, whilst sitting in the
cafeteria with his brother, that
Stan’s own medical problems
were about to change. His
brother Geoff, also suffered
with the ‘family arthritic curse’
but had recently found remarkable pain relief by using a
soothing gel called FX-Silica.
Stan had tried just about
every pill and cream on the
market. But Geoff assured him
that FX-Silica was definitely
worth a try, after all it had
worked for him. It was a
‘massive breakthrough’ in his
battle with arthritic pain.
Stan said he had nothing to
ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE
“Arthritis was
crippling me…
but FX-Silica
has completely
given me my
life back!”
by GEORGE TAYLOR
Stan Hitchen has finally broken the ‘family curse’ of arthritis.
lose so he ordered two tubes
to give it a go. Two days after
receiving them he ordered
another four tubes!
“LIFE IS JUST SO
GREAT AGAIN!”
WHY WAS HE SO
IMPRESSED?
“Within minutes of applying
the gel to my hands and knees
I could feel such soothing relief.
It was like the stiffness and
pain was melting away.
“I was worried the sensation would quickly wear off but
for the next couple of hours I
finished tiling the bathroom
before visiting Jeannie. Even
then, the drive to the hospital
was the best feeling behind
the wheel I’d had in years. No
pain at all in my hands, knees
and back.”
“FX-Silica kept me moving
so that I could continue
working on our dream
renovation without joint
pain. Jeannie was so
pleased to see it when she
came home from hospital.”
Stan’s
Patio
BEFORE
Incredibly after years of pain,
Stan is now free from his
arthritic nightmare. He also had
a derelict house and garden to
get on with, and enough FXSilica to keep him moving
without pain. Over the next
five weeks he worked all day
long, as if he were 21 again! He
finished off the jobs in the
house and then completely
landscaped the garden. He
even found the time to build a
den at the end of the garden
for when his grandchildren
come to visit.
He had the house and the
beautiful new garden all ready
for when Jeannie came home
from hospital. There’s now a
photo sitting proudly on the
mantlepiece showing Jeannie’s
wonderful and tearful reaction
when she saw all the work Stan
had done.
Hearing Stan’s story, it’s
clear that FX-Silica has changed
his life. Gone are the bouts of
depression and he now looks
forward to enjoying his old age
in the house of his dreams and
tending to the garden that he
loves with all his heart!
FX-Silica is available from
Health Broadcast Ltd for
£24.95. To order call their
freephone 0808 208 0312.

POKER CLINIC
Q: If I’ve got a non-premium pocket pair,
how do I work out the likelihood of an
opponent having a higher pocket pair
than me?
A: There’s a neat, easy-to-remember little
formula for figuring out exactly that and
it really comes in useful. Here it is: Take
the number of ranks above your pair,
multiply it by the number of opponents at
your table, and divide it by two to get the
percentage probability that one of those
opponents has a higher pair than you.
EXAMPLE
Suppose you get pocket Tens, for
example, and there are eight other players
on your table. There are four higher ranks
than your Tens (in the form of Jacks,
Queens, Kings and Aces) so you multiply
4 x 8 to get 32 and divide by 2 to get 16.
Your answer is there is a 16% probability
that an opponent has
a higher pair than you
in this situation.

BROOK is the longest-priced winner of

the 1,000 Guineas.
only other 66-1 winner of a Classic in the last 100
years was Rockavon, who won the 1961 2,000 Guineas.
Winning rider Sean Levey, for whom it was a first
Group One success, said: “That’s a massive shock to me
– she had a lot to find. I’ve come out and said we could
do with a bit of luck, she needs to find 17lb!
“Where she’s found that from, I don’t know.”

RACING RESULTS AND A 50-1 WINNER AT NEWMARKET FOR STAR TIP
LAH TI DAR is favourite for
●
the Oaks with some firms after
winning the Pretty Polly Stakes at
Newmarket.
She is a best-priced 9-2 for the
Epsom fillies’ Classic on June
1 and will bid to follow in the
hoofprints of Taghrooda, who won
both races in 2014.
John Gosden said: “It was the
second race of her life but Frankie
said as soon as he met the last
furlong he knew he had plenty left.
“She wants a mile and a half now
on good ground. If this race had
been over 1m3f on good ground
she’d have won by six, which is a
big difference.”

WORLD SNOOKER
MARK FUELLED
UP FOR GLORY
Old rivals fighting to
take the final bite!
MARK WILLIAMS got off to
a kebab-fuelled flier in the
golden oldies final – and
then had to choke on a
John Higgins fightback.
The Welshman had a doner at 2.30am
before this Betfred World Championship showpiece – still buzzing after a
thrilling late Saturday night finish to
an epic semi-final win over Barry
Hawkins.
But up against four-times champion
Higgins, Williams sprang out of the
traps fastest yesterday in their best-of35-frames clash.
The contest brought together two of
the three legends who all turned pro
26 years ago, the other being Ronnie
O’Sullivan, who was watching the
action unfold from the sidelines.
In the initial exchanges, Williams,
43, happily gobbled up sweets from a
fan in the front row who handed him
chocolates and wine gums.
Hammered
But despite surging 4-0 up, Williams
was always braced for a fightback
from Higgins, 42, during the evening
session.
And it duly arrived as the winner of
30 ranking titles quickly put frames on
the board, closing to 7-7, helped by
breaks of 119, 127 and 117, before ending the night 10-7 down.
Ahead of the clash Williams, in
his first Crucible final for 15 years,
said: “I can’t believe I am back in a
world final. Win or lose, it is my
best season for years and I will be
enjoying it.
“I remember playing John in something called the Mita World Masters
when we were 15, he hammered me
and won £5,000. Then I beat him a week

WINNERS: Edmund

CHRIS FROOME is 19th
after stage three of the
Giro d’Italia, which
ended at Eilat in Israel.
Froome is bidding to
become only the third
man to win three Grand
Tour events in a row.
Tour de France and
Spanish Tour winner
Froome was upstaged
by fellow Brit Simon
Yates, who moved up to
sixth behind Aussie
leader Rohan Dennis.
BRITS Kyle Edmund
and Cameron Norrie
claimed the first ATP
Tour doubles title of
their careers by
winning the Estoril
Open yesterday.
British No.1 Edmund
and world No.103
Norrie beat New
Zealand’s Artem Sitak
and Dutchman Wesley
Koolhof 6-4 6-2.
later 4-0 in the final of the British
juniors and only won £295.
“We have played each other since we
were about 13, so to be playing in a
Crucible final for the first time is
incredible, even though we have played
in the semis before.
“And if somehow I do win, I will stick
to my word of doing the press conference naked.
“I’ll be sitting with nothing on
and maybe holding one of these ice
buckets in place.
“I have always felt overall Ronnie
and John are ahead of me. But this
season I have been the form player and
very consistent.”
The 42-year-old O’Sullivan, a fivetime world champion, said: “These two
are true gladiators of the sport, the
best of the best – and this should
probably be pay-per-view.
“We all pushed each other on to
greater things, myself, John and
Mark, I am sure of that.
“And the fact we are still competing
shows it was the best era.
“For me, John is the best of the three
of us.
“If you offered the pros a chance to
swap their game, about 99.9 per cent
of the tour would say, ‘Could I have
John’s please?’.
“The contrast to how we came
through with what happens with
today’s juniors is something I
have been thinking about.
“We were like Mexican boxers, tough boys who grew up
fighting each other.
“So we were hardened even
before we turned professional,
and probably could have done
that at 14.”

Robins rocked
by Tom’s treble
TOM JOHNSTONE scored
his second hat-trick
against Hull KR this
season as Wakefield won
for only the second time
in nine games.
But despite a record
Super League score
against Rovers, coach
Chris Chester opted to
look down rather than up
the table.
He said: “I am pleased
we got the result and the
two points because it
makes the gap that bit
bigger with the teams
underneath us.
“We have spoken about
how difficult it is going to
be for us to get in the top
four. The top-six is
probably more realistic
where we are at the
minute.
“Hopefully now we can
put some wins together
because this month is
going to be important with
Huddersfield twice and
Widnes to come.
“But I don’t think the
scoreline reflected how
tough a game it was
because Rovers caused
us a hell of a lot of
problems in that first half.”
Trinity racked up 36
second-half points after
leading 18-12 at the break.

now has eight tries for the
campaign. His latest treble
came in Wakefield’s
nine-try success that also
saw half-back Liam Finn
pass 500 points for the
club with the third of his
eight goals.
“We are disappointed
with the scoreline but you
can’t win a game without
the football,” admitted
Robins boss Tim Sheens.
“We gifted them so
much ball in the second
half.
“In the first half we were
in a battle with them and
had a try taken off us so it
could have been 18-16,
possibly 18-all, and that
makes a difference.”
Dual registration winger
Kieren Moss, who bagged
seven tries in York City
Knights’ world record
144-0 win over West Wales
Raiders, was among
Rovers’ three try scorers.
Meanwhile, Bradford
Bulls have become the
latest team to run up a
cricket score against the
League One whipping
boys, scoring 21 tries in a
124-0 club record win at
Odsal yesterday.

But two-weight world champ Haye definitely
should pack it in after Saturday’s defeat.
Scouse scrapper Bellew rightly earned the
plaudits as he delivered on his pre-fight promise to stop Haye inside eight rounds and pick
up back-to-back wins over his bitter rival.
This time there was no injury to blame, but
Haye was already going back on his own word
that he would quit not only if he was beaten,
but even if he won and didn’t impress.
The Londoner said he needs to review the
fight before making a decision but it will not
make pretty viewing.
When he goes over the tape, he will see a
brilliant Bellew totally take him apart, while
he looked a shadow of the man who once
reigned as king of the cruiserweights and
WBA heavyweight champion.
Haye refused to attend the post-fight press
conference on Saturday night to speak further
about why he could continue, but those close
to him were refusing to rule out a return to
the ring.
Limelight
His brilliance in his pomp should not be
forgotten but, like Arsenal manager Arsene
Wenger, he just hung around too long.
Now he cannot give it up, with his love of
the limelight greater, more attractive, than
putting his feet up and enjoying his hardearned millions.
But take nothing away from Bellew who, at
35, was at his best as he outsmarted the former
heavyweight champion.
Promoter Eddie Hearn will try to tempt
American pound-for-pound star Andre
Ward out of retirement and to step up to
cruiserweight for a fight in the UK later
this year as one option for Bellew.
There is a more ambitious plot to land a
big-money fight with former heavyweight
champion Tyson Fury, who is on the comeback trail with rival promoter Frank Warren
and BT Sport.
Bellew said: “I’d love Tyson Fury. I’d love to
RIVALS COULD BOTH
THROW IN THE TOWEL
■ by CHRIS McKENNA
knock Tyson Fury out. I know people think
I’m crazy, but I know I can do it.”
The winner of the World Boxing Super
Series cruiserweight final between Oleksandr
Usyk and Murat Gassiev would be a tantalising prospect with all the belts on the line, but
the fight would not offer a huge financial
incentive.
But Hearn would be happy to see Bellew
walk away into the sunset on the back of a
world title win at Goodison Park, a routine
defence and two high-profile wins over
Haye.
“It’s all about looking at the landscape and
if the landscape is not right, if Ward don’t
want it and Fury messes around, if Usyk or
Gassiev money is s*** then he might just leave
it,” said Hearn.
“I’d be happy if he turned around and said,
‘I’m retiring’ but the only problem is that he’s
getting better.”
Bellew got through two dangerous rounds
at the start of Saturday night’s heavyweight
fight at London’s O2 Arena before flooring
Haye twice in the third round.
He waited for the Londoner to miss wildly
with a right then pounced to deliver booming
right hands.
But it was a sweet left uppercut that really
finished it in the fifth, as Bellew dropped him
again with the shot he said he learned from
ring greats Felix Trinidad and Joe Frazier.
Haye was eventually stopped on the ropes
and Bellew’s emotions took over as he
dedicated the fight to his partner Rachael’s
brother, Ashley Roberts, who died last year
while on holiday in Mexico. “I left an empty
seat at ringside, and they’re not cheap,” said
Everton fan Bellew, who had his Liverpool
supporting pal’s name on his shorts.
“I just left it for him and I know he was there.
I dedicate this fight to Ash.
“I know he is watching me and smiling at
me and laughing at me. He’s getting ready for
the Champions League Final, the Kopite t**t.
“It’s been a disastrous eight months. I can’t
even put it into words.
“But it all makes
sense when I get in
a boxing ring. I just
like fighting.
“I
would
beat
Andre Ward. You
will all laugh and
say I wouldn’t have a
chance.
“But I would
knock Andre Ward
out. I could outbox
Andre Ward.”
Bellew will have
started the battle to
get back into the
ring yesterday when
Rachael
returned
from holiday, as he
admitted he will need
her permission to
continue.
But
maybe
he
should take the fairytale finish that his
rival Haye was never
afforded.

Shane’s going

SHANE BYRNE is hoping
to turn up the heat in

Superbike Championship
races after scorching to
pole at Oulton Park.
The Be Wiser Ducati
rider destroyed the race
lap record with a hot time
of 1min 33.979secs
yesterday.
Now the six-time champ
wants to convert pole into
two wins.
He said: “I’m obviously
happy with pole position
but most of all I’m happy
to be on the front row.
“I always want to be on
the front row. Pole isn’t
even too important, it’s
the front row that matters.
“We’ve got the perfect
grid position so now we
need to make it count.”
After the cold and wet of
the previous two rounds,
track temperatures
climbed to more than
37 degrees.

his rivals putting up a
fight, no one else was able
to get into the 1.33s.
Jake Dixon, on the RAF

Kawasaki, was second
quickest, while Byrne’s
team-mate Glenn Irwin
also made the front row.
Dixon said: “Maybe
we’ve touched on a little
bit of something. I can’t

rounds.”

2-0 TO TONY: Bellew
shows his record
against David Haye
ANTHONY JOSHUA is
confident his next fight
will be against Deontay
Wilder as talks continue
for a unification clash.
The WBA, IBF and WBO
champion insists he
wants the fight but “will
not sign his life away” as
he called for details on the
£36m offer made by the
WBC title holder’s team.
Joshua’s promoter
Eddie Hearn has been in
conversation with Wilder’s
management and is flying
to New York this week
where he hopes to hold
face-to-face talks.
Joshua insists he wants
the fight before the end
of 2018 and said: “I do
believe it will be next
because I want the
fight and I believe he
wants the fight.
“We have got a lot
of time to make it
happen.
“The stars
have aligned
and its destiny
to get this
■ by CHRIS McKENNA
fight on. It’s a fight to be
undisputed heavyweight
champion, it’s big.”
Hearn has been
reluctant to accept the
offer from the American’s
team because of concerns
over what will be included
in the contract.
Wilder’s manager Shelly
Finkel says everything
would be laid out in detail
before any contracts are
signed as soon as Joshua
says he accepts the offer.
But Hearn and his
fighter will not say yes
until they get the details
which has led to the
current impasse.
Joshua added: “The
fight is going to happen,
there is no doubt about it.
“I can’t sign my life
away. You can’t agree
something without
knowing the devil in the
detail.
“It’s the devil in the
detail which we will get
into. We are professional.”
MARC MARQUEZ raced
into the championship
lead in Spain yesterday
after Andrea Dovizioso
was caught up in a
dramatic three-bike crash.
Defending champion
Marquez powered his
Repsol Honda to the
chequered flag at Jerez,
some five seconds ahead
of Monster Yamaha Tech
3’s Johann Zarco – much
to the delight of his
Spanish fans.
Marquez said: “It’s great
to win here with all these
amazing fans. I was
convinced before the race
that I was able to win.
Clever
“We started on the
second row because I
didn’t find the best lap
but anyway I was clever,
I pushed.
“I knew that my
team-mate was like me or
maybe even stronger, but
you know here the race is
very long.
“You have to manage
many, many things and
now we will try to keep at
this level.”
Marquez took the lead
on the eighth lap after
squeezing down the
inside of then leader
Jorge Lorenzo, ironically
at the corner now named
after the former champion.
From there he came
under no serious threat,
particularly as Lorenzo,
his Ducati team-mate
MOTOGP
■ by ZOE BURN
Dovizioso and Marquez’s
team-mate Dani Pedrosa,
all came together in a
dramatic three-bike
pile-up on lap 18.
Dovizioso, who had been
leading the championship
by a point before
yesterday’s race, had
been sitting third behind
Lorenzo and had made a
move for the place before
drifting wide.
Lorenzo then tried to
come back inside, but
Pedrosa had also spotted
a gap and the pair hit the
apex at the same time.
Pedrosa hit Lorenzo and
flew over the bars of his
Honda as Lorenzo in turn
wiped out Dovizioso.
That left Zarco, who had
been fifth at the time, a
clear run to second as
Suzuki Ecstar’s Andrea
Iannone took third.
Dovizioso, who has now
dropped to fifth in the
championship chase,
said: “We lost 20 precious
points today, but we go
home being aware of our
competitiveness.”
It was a tough day for
Britain’s Cal Crutchlow,
who started from pole but
crashed his LCR Honda
Castrol on the eighth lap.
Fellow Brits Bradley
Smith and Scott Redding
finished 13th and 15th
respectively.

MATCH
RATING
★★
This was the day Pep Guardiola’s men
picked up the Premier League trophy as
their reward for a stunning season.
But the biggest smiles belonged to the
Terriers at the final whistle after David
Wagner’s heroes somehow secured a
precious point that could well keep them
up.
Wagner struggled to contain his delight at
the end as he embraced Guardiola, knowing
there is now a strong chance he will be
taking him on again next season.
To put the result into perspective, the
Terriers became the first side in the league
to keep a clean sheet at the Etihad since
Manchester United in April 2017.
The underdogs could even have stolen all
three points had substitutes Scott Malone
and Laurent Depoitre not wasted chances to
snatch a shock win in stoppage time.
Despite tough remaining games against
Chelsea and Arsenal, the Yorkshire outfit
are now three points clear of the drop zone
with the onus on those below them winning
games to overtake them.
Being bitten by the Terriers wasn’t what
Guardiola had in mind when his team
emerged through a pre-match guard of
honour made up of their opponents and

City’s title-winning predecessors from
1968.
The champions could yet break several
more records before ending a remarkable campaign and they wanted to finish
with a flourish.
Guardiola had no intention of letting
up in his pursuit of perfection. But, for
once, it just didn’t happen for them.
The Terriers came into this game
having scored just two goals in their last
seven games but they proved stubborn
opposition at the other end of the pitch.
Foiled
Not that the visitors didn’t appear
under the pump from the start, with
David Silva forcing a smart save from
Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl in the
opening minutes before Kevin De
Bruyne shot inches wide following
another sweeping attack.
But the Terriers could have gone ahead
themselves on 12 minutes when Florent
Hadergjonaj was foiled by Ederson.
Wagner claims dog-walking helps him
solve problems and he had a clear plan to
attack Guardiola’s men.
Most of City’s rivals have been barking up the wrong tree this season in
attempting to contain the champions,
but like his close friend Jurgen Klopp,
Wagner had worked out that the only
way to take on the champions was to
match fire with fire.
Aaron Mooy lashed a shot into the sidenetting against his old club before
Ederson produced a stunning save to tip
wide Alex Pritchard’s dipping drive.
The visitors continued to create the
better chances, with Mooy’s slick pass
setting up Chris Lowe, but he sliced his
shot wide to waste the opening.
The hosts were lacklustre, but De
Bruyne at least tested Town keeper
Lossl with a swerving effort.
But nothing could lift City from the
slumber. Guardiola’s men enjoyed all the
possession and pinned their opponents
deep inside their own half.
But besides long-range shots from subs
Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy,
they created little to leave the Catalan
coach feeling like holding his own inquisition on the sidelines.
Yet this was no time for inquests as the
job had been done. And all that was left –
once the standard pitch invasion had
been cleared – was for Vincent Kompany
to lead his squad onto the pitch to lift the
biggest prize in English football.

Green: Splash Young Lions up
for test
Euros
PAUL GREEN insists
Chelsea needs to splash
the cash to bridge the gap
to the rest of Europe.
The Chelsea No.2 was
speaking after his side
eased to victory over
Arsenal at Wembley in the
women’s FA Cup Final – in
front of a 45,423 crowd.
A brace from Ramona
Bachmann and a strike
from Lionesses star Fran
Kirby sealed the win, with
Vivienne Miedema scoring
the Gunners’ consolation.
Victory came after a
difficult week for Emma
Hayes’ side – who was
advised not to do any
interviews due to her
late-stage pregnancy –
after they crashed out
of the Champions League
to Wolfsburg.
Green said: “You can

see over the last five
years we have been
building and I think we are
now in the top four or five
teams in Europe.
“We have got to recruit
better players again to
compete in Europe.”
Arsenal are way behind
title-chasing duo Chelsea
and Manchester City, and
boss Joe Montemurro
said: “It’s about finding the
right fit going forwards. We
don’t have squad depth.”
STEVE COOPER hopes
his England Under-17s
can balance the pressure
of exams with the focus of
being favourites for the
European Championships.
The young Lions are
looking to improve
against Italy today after an
unconvincing 2-1 win over
Israel in their opening
group game on Friday.
Cooper admitted that the
strain might have got to
his youngsters, who have
to balance schoolwork
with taking on the cream
of Europe’s youth.
Ahead of the clash with
Italy at Walsall, Cooper
said: “It’s the same every
summer, although it’s
actually easier this year
because we are at home.
“We have a tutor with us
and the players have to
■ by IAN WHITTELL
do schoolwork every
morning.
“It was important to win
that match, the first game
in a tournament is always
a key one.
“It was a new experience
for them as individuals
but that’s what these
tournaments are about,
experience.”
England are aiming to
land the European title
they last won at this level
in 2014.
And Cooper added:
“We’re trying to get them
through to Gareth
Southgate in the senior
team in a few years.”

TONY BELLEW has ended one career in the shape of David Haye
and should now bring the curtain down on his own as well.
Bellew’s second win over Haye should put paid to his rival once and
for all, but the Scouser should also hang up his gloves.
His biggest fight could still be to come, in terms of convincing
himself that retiring is the right thing to do, when he knows he
can still bank millions from one last scrap. But a smart man quits
while he’s ahead. Bellew might feel like he can walk on water, but it
only takes one punch to destroy a life in the most unforgiving sport.

Four years after they
were relegated, Cardiff

Warnock also set a new
record for English football
by eclipsing the promotion feats of Dave Bassett,
Jim Smith and the late
Graham Taylor.
He said: “It’s the biggest
achievement in my
38-year career by an
absolute mile.
“It’s such a fabulous
achievement because
nobody gave us a chance.
“When I came here we
were second from bottom
and we’ve built it all the
way up.
“I’m really proud of
building a team capable of
ruffling a few feathers and
we will be the same next
season.
“We will get one or two
things thrown at us next
season but it will be better
than being in the
Championship.
“I’m sure we will be
odds-on favourites to be
relegated as far as the
bookies are concerned.
“But we were 33-1 to get
promotion, so we can
prove the bookies wrong.
“I am just going to enjoy
it at my age. If it goes
pear-shaped, I’ll leave, so
there’s nothing to worry
about.
“We have got the basis
already but we may have
to go out and buy four,
five or six players.”
Cardiff owner Vincent
Tan, who was kissed and
carried aloft by spectators
at the final whistle, is
believed to be weighing
up a potential sale this
summer.

OLD FOES: Sir Alex
with Wenger at Old
Trafford last Sunday
You’d be potty to
want to see this
HANDS up if you want John
Higgins to win the World
Snooker Championship
today.
Higgins (right) is doing
battle with Mark Williams
in a final of the golden
oldies that has taken the
sport on a trip back in time.
But if Higgins loses,
Williams has vowed to
conduct his Press
conference in Sheffield
naked.
Spare us, mate, please.
We have all seen enough
balls flying around the
Crucible during the past
fortnight.
But if Williams does win
and keeps his promise, it
begs the question – where
will the wacky Welshman
put his cue and chalk?
There is the Holy Trinity of
George Best, Denis Law and Sir
Bobby Charlton along with one of
former manager Sir Matt Busby.
The latter two will always be
intertwined with the Munich Air
Disaster, something that will
resonate around the club forever.
What happened in those
intervening years did so much to
establish United in the hearts of
the footballing family.
But nothing and no-one did
more than Sir Alex Ferguson to
make United the true giant it is
today.
The trophies, the will to win
and the ability to evolve
through the years make him a
unique legend with no equals.
Fergie is now cast in bronze
himself (right) behind the stand
named after someone who turned
United into pure gold.
Stare at the statue of him and
he looks formidable and
indestructible. But we have
learnt that he isn’t, following the
shocking news that Fergie, at 76,
is battling to save his life in a
Salford hospital after suffering
a brain haemorrhage.
He is in intensive care and
now Fergie has to do what he
does best and somehow win the
biggest fight of all.
The inevitable outpouring of
love and concern for Fergie
speaks volumes for what the
man means to people.
That’s because his influence
stretched way beyond shaping
superstars like Cristiano
Ronaldo, David Beckham and
Wayne Rooney.
During a glittering managerial
career that defined him as the
greatest boss of all time, Fergie
treated everyone the same.
Complex
From kit men to canteen staff,
Fergie imparted his knowledge
and wisdom on them all because
he refused to differentiate
between people of different social
standings and class.
Yet at the peak of his powers he
remained a huge contradiction
and complex character who could
be a friend one minute and fierce
foe the next.

WINNER: Fergie
with both FA Cup
and PL trophy after
the 1996 Double
with an expletive that cannot be
repeated in these pages.
The following morning he
arrived for breakfast on the
packed hotel terrace and had
nowhere to sit but right next to
yours truly.
He muttered to himself, with a
mischievous grin on his face,
that “he knew he should have
booked a table”.
Fergie then proceeded to
spend the next 20 minutes
enquiring about the life of a
journalist he hardly knew.
There was a genuine warmth
and interest from someone who
viewed the media as nothing
more than enemies who were
there to be exploited. But not
on this occasion.
Fergie has been cut from the
same cloth as fellow legends
Bill Shankly, Jock Stein and
Kenny Dalglish.
The game needs people like
them, characters who bestow
huge greatness and
knowledge on the game.
The longer this continues
to happen through people
like Fergie, the better
football will be.
So all we can do is live
in hope that Fergie
recovers because the
game still needs
him. Get well soon.
Go for young Gun
GARETH SOUTHGATE should
take a punt on Arsenal’s
Ainsley Maitland-Niles ahead
of the World Cup.
The Gunners midfielder is
inexperienced and still has a
lot of maturing to do at the
highest level.
But the 20-year-old (right)
is also very, very good and
proved as much with a
towering performance in his
side’s recent defeat to
Manchester United at Old
Trafford.
The last time I checked,
Southgate didn’t appear to be
spoilt for choice when it came
to top-class midfielders.
So why not pick him, play
him in the warm-up games
against Nigeria and Costa
Rica and see what he is
made of?
Take him to Russia. At worst,
it would provide him with
some invaluable experience
of a major tournament ahead
of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
At best, he could get into
the team and become an
overnight sensation.

From Back Page
hope he recovers quickly.
He is a strong man. Nobody
knows exactly what it is.”
Chelsea boss Antonio
Conte, speaking after his
side’s game against Liverpool, said: “I’m very sad
because I have had the possibility to know him, and
his wife, and to understand
this is a special person.
“I appreciate the man a
lot. This news changed my
day in a bad way. But we
hope to see him quickly and
give our best wishes to him
to recover very soon.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen
Klopp added: “When I heard
it yesterday, I couldn’t believe it. But this can happen
to all of us. He was and will
be in my players’ minds
now. I wish him and his
family all the best.
“He will be in good shape
again, and I’m looking forward to seeing him again.”
Manchester City boss Pep
Guardiola revealed the
good friends had been out
to dinner a fortnight ago.
The Spaniard said: “Brian
Kidd, who is here now, was
with (Sir Alex) for a lot of
time (at United). So a big
hug (for Fergie) and our
thoughts are with his wife
Cathy and the Manchester
United family.
“I was glad to have dinner
with him two weeks ago,
and hopefully he can recover as quickly as possible.
“All the fans in the stadium, you couldn’t find one
who doesn’t wish this amazing person all the best.”
Kidd, who was Fergie’s assistant for seven years, said:
“He’s an iconic person. You
think he’s indestructible.
“What he did for United
was phenomenal.
“He’s in our prayers and
thoughts. We wish him a
speedy recovery.”
There has been no update
on Sir Alex’s condition but
last night the club thanked
well-wishers.
They said: “Manchester
United would like to thank
the wider football world for
the messages of support
following the news that Sir
Alex Ferguson underwent
emergency surgery on
Saturday evening.”

Now there is hope. We are
getting three points in
every game, our opponents
are dropping points.
“But our future is not in
our hands. We have to try
to put pressure on the
teams ahead of us. We are
still alive and fighting.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen
Klopp refused to blame his
side’s Champions League
semi-finals exertions
against Roma on Wednesday
for their poor display.
Klopp said: “I hate the
result but the performance
was good enough to get a
good point. Chelsea have to
win their games as well.”
Klopp also revealed he
was unhappy that 43-goal
Mohamed Salah was
booked for diving.
“That’s not what I want to
see, that is not what he
wants to do,” he said.

The Blues boss gave
up hope of a top-four

NEIL WARNOCK is ready for
another crack at the Premier
League with Cardiff after toasting a
record eighth promotion.
The Bluebirds boss had talked
about going out on a high if he
led the Welsh side back into the
top flight.
Second spot in the Championship
was sealed by a goalless draw with
Reading. That kept them above
Fulham, who lost at Birmingham.
Warnock, 69, has no plans to walk
away, saying: “I think I’ve got to
stay here for the club. As quickly
as the club has developed, it could
