KILLER
Just like conventional Sudoku the aim is to fill each row, each
column and each 3 x 3 box with all the numbers from 1 to 9.
Your clues are the numbers in the dotted-line shapes, which
represent the sum of the numbers within that shape. The same
number cannot be used twice within a dotted-line shape.

The sky This week
with Jane ridder-patrick
Thursday?s New Moon in Libra at 20.13 BST, configured with
Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury, is an invitation to put our
relationships on a better footing, especially if we?ve been
tip-toeing around others for fear of upsetting the apple cart.
Honest communication and fairness are the keys to success
now. Most affected are those born January 14 to 20, April 14
to 20, July 17 to 23 and October 17 to 23.

With Thursday?s New Moon in
your partnership area you?re
laying the foundations this
week for better relationships, and ideas
about how to do this may take you by
surprise. Those closest to you could be
more supportive than usual and your
appreciation would mean a lot to them.
A good week for...sharing
Minor body symptoms and
daily duties could be irritating
but dealing with them now
will prevent unnecessary work in the
long term. It?s not always easy for you to
pay attention to your intuition, but you
could miss some inspiration and useful
information if you ignore it this week.
A good week for...agreements
Thursday?s New Moon in your
area of creativity and children
offers you the chance to make a
fresh start there. A worry shared
is a worry halved and by sharing yours
with a friend you?ll probably find that
you?ve been blowing things out of
proportion anyway.
A good week for...helping
Leo
VirGo
The October New Moon is
your annual prompt to review your
assets. Keep focussing on your finances
and talents and you?ll find exactly the
right ways to make the most of them,
and some of these ideas could be
revolutionary. But you need to act as
well as think.
A good week for...information
Libra
Thursday?s New Moon in your
own sign, marks an important
new beginning for you. Take
time out to pinpoint what you?d like to
come into your life over the coming
year. Draw up a plan and timetable for
achieving this and start putting things
into action this week.
A good week for...acquisitions
You?re aware there?s a lot
going on in you just beneath
the surface and it?s working in your
favour. By counting your many
blessings you?ll attract more into
your life. Flashes of inspiration
could bring answers to problems
midweek.
A good week for...courage
SaGittariuS

It?s often hard for you to be
flexible in your views yet that?s
exactly what you need to be over the
next month. Speaking a little and
listening a lot will bring you the best
results now and keep everybody happy.
Some surprising good news could come
your way towards the weekend.
A good week for...family
Friends and groups are your
focus for the next month and
the more you offer, the more benefits
there will be for all. But the desire to go
it alone and do things your way could
be tugging at you now too. It?s not a case
of either or. You just need to find ways of
juggling time for both.
A good week for...dreams
Put your talent for long-term
planning to good use now.
Thursday?s New Moon in your
career and status area offers you the
chance of fresh beginnings. You may
have to negotiate with someone about
sharing responsibilities. Agree to do
what you know is fair but no more.
A good week for...friends
Any changes you?d like to
make at home get a
thumbs-up this week as you can push
ahead now and enjoy yourself in the
process. Children and your own special
interests occupy your imagination
around midweek and it?s time to indulge
yourself in a bit of whatever you fancy.
A good week for...hobbies
SCorPio
If you?re a typical Aquarian,
you?ve got unconventional
ideas and aren?t afraid to express them,
and this could be especially true this
week. Just try adding a spoonful of tact
and diplomacy to your verbal dynamite
if you?d like others to listen to what
you?re saying, for you could be right.
A good week for...goals
You?d usually rather ignore
things that are bothering you
and hope they will go away,
but don?t expect those closest to you to
read your mind now. Be honest about
your needs and everybody should find
ways of getting their share. It?s a great
week for learning or travelling.
A good week for...faith

BACK PAIN HEALTH UPDATE - BY DR KATHRYN SENIOR
S
o says Mr Mansell, an
86-year old arthritis
sufferer
who
was
plagued by daily back pain
for years. That?s until he
saw a Biofeedbac? system
advert near his home in
Birmingham.
He and his wife looked into it
further and were so impressed
by what others had said about
it, they bought one that same
day. Mr Mansell began using the
Biofeedbac? belt straight away.
?I couldn?t believe how
fast it worked!?
?It was just as the other people
had said. I was pain free for the
?rst time in as long as I could
remember and it happened so
quickly.?
?We?d given up hope?
?I have been to doctors and
specialists who?ve told me that I
have osteo-arthritis in my spine.
The only thing they could do is
operate but surgery would be too
risky at my age? I have serious
breathing problems and I just
couldn?t take the anaesthetic. For
a while it looked as though I was
going to have to get used to being
in constant pain.?
?We had sufferd for years
from back pain!?
The Mansell?s suffered
for
years with back pain, until they
discovered Biofeedbac ? and it?s
changed their life completely!
Mrs Mansell, who?s just a year
younger, also gets back pain and
stiffness, often after a restless
night?s sleep. The couple have
invested in several mattresses
over the last few years including
LUMBROS?
Posture
Correction
Belt
Special offer today, so
you can look forward to
pain-free days.
UK SCIENTIST INVENTS BIOFEEDBAC LUMBROS BELT
?We?re pain free!
It?s the best
thirty pounds
we have ever
spent...?
BY Dr Kathryn Senior
laying out over �00 for a
specialist orthopaedic one. ?We
were just losing hope because
nothing we did helped,? explained
Mr Mansell.
?We couldn?t
believe how
much it would
change our lives
for the better!?
The couple were delighted with the
Biofeedbac belt for Mr Mansell,
and they soon realised he didn?t
need to wear it all day and every
day to stay pain-free. ?Some days
I just wear it for a few hours and
CERVICAL
Neck pain
THORACIC
Upper back pain
A UK leader in spinal technology, Prof. Pope is in
the top 53 of the World?s most influential scientists.
The LUMBROS Biofeedbac? Support Belt is a
source of pride, he states:
that does the trick, so I suggested
my wife try it one morning. She
was really struggling with her
back but after 45 minutes she was
walking easily and was thrilled
that her pain had gone altogether
too. She wears it more than I do
now!?
?Double success for
Biofeedbac!!?
?I worked closely with Global Product in the
UK to develop Biofeedbac? health system.
Drug free and designed to help you get on
with your life.
Why LUMBROSTM BACK SUPPORT?
?Definitely?
getting
the
Biofeedbac? belt was the best
� we ever spent. We wouldn?t
be without it and we can?t
recommend it highly enough.? Mr
Mansell spoke with Dr Kathryn
Senior, an independent journalist
commissioned by Bioenergiser to
conduct a survey of Biofeedbac?
technology users to document
their experiences and feedback.

The opening juvenile
hurdle at Chepstow
looks intriguing.
Chances can be given
to Gumball, Malaya
and Kozier.
The first two named
are last-time-out
winners, while Kozier
shaped well on his
debut at Fontwell when
second to a wellbacked winner.
Preference is just for
Paul Nicholls? Malaya,
who makes her British
debut having won an
Auteuil listed hurdle,
where the third has
won twice since.
Gumball won by a
huge distance at
Stratford. But it?s hard to
quantify the value of
the race and Kozier?s
turn will come.
It would be unusual
for a maiden to win a
Grade 2 hurdle, but
Tommy Rapper has a
solid chance in the
Persian War hurdle.
His third to Keeper Hill
at Huntingdon, beaten
just a length-and-threequarters with a 146rated rival in second
place was excellent.

R

the Swiss second seed

Argentina?s Juan Martin

Sixteenth-seed del Potro
had taken the first set but
was unable to make it
through to the final as
Federer won 3-6 6-3 6-3 to
set up a meeting with Nadal.
Del Potro looked on
course to record an upset as
he claimed his only break
point of the first set to move
ahead in the contest.
However, Federer proved
too strong, as breaks in the
next two sets earned him
victory and set up a clash
with the only player who
leads him in the ATP
rankings.
The match hinged on the
second set as Federer failed
to convert four successive
break points at 3-2 up but
he claimed his next chance
to swing the contest his way.
With del Potro unable to
set up a break point in either
the second or third sets,
Federer was able to progress
in one hour and 58 minutes
to face Nadal for a fourth
time this season. He holds a
3-0 advantage over his rival.
Nadal had earlier reached
his 111th career final and
10th of the year with a 7-5

7-6 (7/3) victory over the
big-serving Croatian Marin
Cilic.
The Spaniard, who lost to
Nikolay Davydenko in his
only previous Shanghai
Masters final appearance in
2009, hit 23 winners and
benefited from 40 unforced
errors by his opponent.
Cilic came under pressure
early on as he had to save
six break points in his first
two service games, before
hitting back as he went on to
waste three set points.
Nadal was able to hold
serve to make it 5-5, and
then break in the next to
lead before serving out
to take the set in 67
minutes.
Breaks of serve were
exchanged midway through
the second set and Cilic kept
himself in the contest with a
big forehand winner down
the line as Nadal served for
the match at 5-4.
But when the set went
into a tie-break Nadal
clinched the match with a
service winner in a little over
two hours to take his
winning run to 17 matches.
The Spaniard said: ?I?m
very happy. I played, I think,
a very high level of tennis. It
was a great match again. He
played well, too.
?We are at the highest
level of our sport, so nobody
wins easy.

go for the victories, for sure
you?re going to have tough

Derbyshire have
signed former West

Rampaul from Surrey
on a three-year
contract.
The 32-year-old
seamer joins the
county as a nonoverseas player and
will be available across
all three formats.
?We identified newball bowling as an

Shanghai is set

said Derbyshire cricket

Rampaul, who took
49 wickets in 18 Tests, is
looking forward to a
new challenge after
spending two years
with Surrey.
He said: ?The club
has ambitious plans for
the years ahead and
I?m excited by what
we can achieve.?
Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova remains
on course for a first WTA
title since returning from
a drugs ban after beating
Peng Shuai in straight sets
in yesterday?s semi-finals
of the Tianjin Open.
The five-time Grand
Slam champion needed
just 78 minutes to beat
third-seed Peng 6-3 6-1
and book a final date with
world No. 102 Aryna
Sabalenka.
Sharapova, a
tournament wildcard,
made the perfect start by
breaking Peng?s serve in
the first game of the
match and closed out the
set with another break.
Peng had held her own
for much of the opening
set, but former world No. 1
Sharapova broke early in
the second and completed
a comfortable win.
Sharapova, who made
her comeback in April, has
advanced to her first WTA
final since May 2015
without dropping a set.
The 30-year-old will
meet teenager Sabalenka
in today?s final after the

Leicester?s Matt Toomua is tackled by Henry Chavancy and Anthony Tuitavake of
Racing 92 at Stade Yves-Du-Manoir yesterday
continued his all-round
physical performance at the
start of the second period.
After half time, it was a tight
affair.
Iribaren put a monster
penalty short before
Vakatawa returned from the
bin and Machenaud came
off the bench to score the
first points after the break
with a well-struck penalty.
The French scrum-half?s
effort came in the 58th
minute, just after Racing had
started to rotate their side by
making use of their starstudded bench.
Leicester nonetheless
remained undaunted. May
went close to a second,
scorching into space but just
being tackled into touch
when the try line beckoned.
Front-row forward
replacements gave Leicester
a new lease of life as they
stayed in the game and their
scrum was a match for their
French opponents.
It meant the game went
into the final 10 minutes
with the result still in the
balance.
England pivot Ford then
gave the home crowd a
nervous finish, booting a
77th-minute penalty.
At that stage a remarkable
Leicester win looked on the
cards, but it was not meant
to be in the end.
Racing took heed of their
warning and pushed for a
fourth try and although it did
not arrive, both sides went
home happy with something
to take from the game.

Back in 2005 Jim Hay, the former
Hawick and Scotland hooker, launched
a Scottish Professional Rugby Players?
Association to represent the interests of
pros within the sport.
In April, the following year, they
hosted an awards dinner, but no one
from the SRU attended.
Clearly relations were less than
cordial.
If you try to find any reference to the
SPRPA now, all that appears are some
mentions of the launch and one or two
other articles.
There is no website, or links from
other associations? sites.
One is left to conclude that the
SPRPA has withered on the vine and no
longer exists.
Players? associations fulfil an
incredibly important role in the
professional game.
Not only do they represent the
interests of their members from a
playing perspective, which
undoubtedly leads to tensions with
club owners, they also offer critical
support measures ranging from
career support to advice on mental
health.
The English players? association, the
RPA, has more than 700 male and
female members and more than 400
former members.
For a modest membership fee, the
RPA is seen as an invaluable resource to
players and there are similar
igers started their
European Champions Cup
campaign with a narrow
defeat to French giants
Racing 92.
The result in Paris meant
the Tigers secured a losing
bonus point as first-half tries
from Luke Hamilton and
Jonny May meant they took
something back to England.
Fly-half George Ford
ended the game with eight
points, and his late penalty
ensured Racing had to play
until the final whistle.
Leone Nakarawa, Bernard
Le Roux and Teddy Thomas
were the home side?s scorers
as Teddy Iribaren kicked two
conversions and Maxime
Machenaud added a penalty.
An entertaining first
period ended with the
Tigers behind by only four
points.
Hamilton?s early opener
from 15 metres, which Ford
converted, gave Matt
O?Connor?s side confidence,
but it was not long before
Racing turned on the style.
After the home side saw a
score ruled out by the TMO,
Nakarawa got Racing?s first
try and Iribaren levelled the
game with the extra two
points. Ford soon responded
with a penalty, before
Iribaren added the extras to
Le Roux?s try.
There was still time in an
all-action opening 40
minutes for flying wing
Thomas to cross for Racing?s
third score, Virimi Vakatawa
to see yellow for the home
side and May?s seventh try in
seven games for Leicester.
It was a fine finish from
the England winger, Ford
spreading the ball left for
May to dive over by the
corner flag. Ford couldn?t
convert.

Junior Rasolea made up for lost
time by propelling Edinburgh to
Euro glory.
The bustling centre bagged
two touchdowns in quick
succession at the Madejski
Stadium to sink the exiles and set
up the ideal start to the
Challenge Cup campaign.
It was his first appearance
since being sidelined by injury at
the start of the season.
The hosts had edged in front
with a tricky penalty by Theo
Brophy Clewes.
But after a spell of midfield
sparring the response of the
Gunners was lethal. Clever work
from Jason Tovey created the
time and space for Damien
Hoyland to burst through and
reach the line.
Tovey slotted the extras to
provide a further confidence
boost.
Tovey was in the spotlight
again as slick passing resulted in
Resolea bagging try No. 2.
The frantic action continued
with Ollie Hoskins darting over
for a London Irish counter ? only
for Brophy Clewes to make a
hash of the easy conversion.
Gunners immediately hit back
with a penalty by Sam HidalgoClyne in the wake of a strong run
from Glenn Bryce.
Rasolea then burst his way
back into the contest to complete
his double ? only to see Brophy
Clewes claw back three points on
the brink of the interval.
He repeated the feat early in
the second half to slash the gap
to just six points ? however,
Hidalgo-Clyne restored the
Edinburgh advantage.
Gunners had to withstand a
spell of heavy pressure before
making wholesale changes.
Any chance of a late home
fightback was dashed as James
Ritchie pounced to make sure of
the full haul of points. Youngster
Luke Crosbie added another ?
both goaled by Hidalgo-Clyne to
round off the rout.
?
Players need a strong
voice as welfare comes
under real scrutiny
associations across the world ? yet it is
hard to find one in Scotland.
Player welfare has come under real
scrutiny this season, with coaches
across the country bemoaning the
number of injuries sustained, which
many observers are attributing to the
change in laws.
Coming into this weekend, when
European competition dominates
the professional fixture list, clubs of
course want to be able to field their best
teams.
Yet with many squads ravaged by
injury, the fans are going to have to put
up with watching many teams who are
well below full strength ? not ideal for
the premier club competition in the
Northern Hemisphere.
This is where players? associations
have another crucial role to play, with
the debate raging around the length of
the club season and the potential for
further compression of both the
domestic and international fixture
lists.
The interests of the players have to be
well represented and given a strong
voice.
Jim Hay may have been ahead of his
time, or his intentions may have been
misinterpreted by the powers that be at
Murrayfield a decade or so ago.
But surely it is time for professional
rugby players in Scotland to have
their own representative voice and a
body that will look after them not only
now, but in their future beyond rugby as
well.

The Old Course is safe. It is the
ball that needs to be changed
L
ots of people were
horrified at Ross Fisher shooting
61 around St Andrews last
Sunday. But I am not in that
camp.
I enjoyed Ross? phenomenal
round of golf at the Old Course. I
was actually a bit sorry he didn?t
become the first player to shoot a
59 on the European Tour.
It has sparked debate ? again ? as
to whether something needs to be
done to stop classic courses
becoming obsolete.
Frankly, that was an issue before
Ross?s brilliant round and
continues to be so.
My great belief is that we should
have a special tournament golf ball
that is only for the use of
professionals.
The ball would be less
compressed, and would not travel
as far through the air. That would
mean courses would not need
constant altering or upgrading.
A new ball was introduced at
Wimbledon, which improved the
quality of tennis, while in squash,
the top players use a ball which
doesn?t bounce as much.
There is no reason why we
couldn?t successfully do something
similar in golf.
I don?t feel there is any need to
change anything for the amateur
golfer, because the modern ball
and equipment is increasing their
enjoyment.
The ball may be going further,
but it doesn?t go straight without a
good swing and a sound technique.
Evidence also suggests that
handicaps are not plummeting.
The pros are the ones feeling all
the benefits of the golf ball. So they
should be the ones with the
requisite skill to cope with one of a
different quality.
As for last Sunday, there were a
combination of factors that came
together to enable Fisher to nearly
break 60 at golf?s spiritual home.
As the tournament is a pro-am
over 72 holes, the course can?t be
prepared as it would be for an
Open Championship.
The greens are nowhere near as
fast, the pins are never tucked away
and the format creates a relaxed
atmosphere across the week.
Some of the quirks of the Old
Course mean it can be vulnerable
to low scoring. But they are the
quirks which make it what it is.
Plus, in early October, all three
links courses ? St Andrews,
Kingsbarns and Carnoustie ? have
become a bit damp and the fiery
nature has all but gone, meaning
the pros can be aggressive and go
right at the flags.
It?s the same with the pro-am
event at Pebble Beach on the PGA
Tour. That is far gentler than when
the USGA gets hold of it for the US
Open.
So don?t worry about The R&A
thinking they will have to look for
an alternative venue to the Old
Course on The Open rota.
It remains a favourite with them,
the players and the spectators.
I?m sure last week?s sponsor,
Johann Rupert, was delighted with
how well Fisher and eventual
winner, Tyrrell Hatton, played.
That is good for the European
Tour and good for golf.
But if Ross?s 61 at St Andrews was
special, the 63 by Tommy
Fleetwood at Carnoustie earlier in
the week was possibly even better.
Carnoustie is a beast. So it was
some going for Tommy to post that
course record.
I?m certain no-one will get near
that next summer when The Open
arrives at the Angus links in full
Championship mode.
My first thought when I heard about the upcoming trial of a
40-second shot clock at next year?s Austrian Open was that it?s
no more than a gimmick.
Slow play has been an issue ever since I was on the Tour.
Everyone knew who the fast and slow players were.
There are already guidelines in place to penalise offenders, and some
players have been fined. But referees are very reluctant to do this.
We always talk about the simple ways to speed up play ? be ready
when it?s your turn, walk faster between holes. But this feels like a
crusade on the European Tour?s part.
If the problem is so endemic, why are we waiting until next June?
There are nearly eight months of tournaments before then.
It could be tested out at Challenge Tour events in the meantime, and
then rolled out. That would seem a more logical solution.

Can Wallace deliver
the Matt finish needed
for victory at Monza?
E
ngland?s Matt Wallace
will take a two-shot lead into
today?s final round of the
Italian Open after moving clear
of the pack in Monza.
Wallace went into yesterday?s
third round tied on 13-under-par
with Marcus Fraser at the top of
the leaderboard and finished the
day four shots better off.
The 27-year-old, who won his
first European Tour title in
Portugal earlier this year, carded
five birdies and only one bogey,
pulling off an impressive par save
at the 18th.
?I?d say we?re probably only
halfway there because Sunday is a
different day,? Wallace said.
?I know where my ball is going,
apart from the last shot on 18
there. Mentally, I?m really happy,
and that par on the last will help.
?I?m going to go out, fight as
hard as I can and hopefully be
standing here with the trophy
tomorrow.?
Wallace?s closest challengers are
defending champion Francesco
Molinari and last week?s Alfred
Dunhill Links Championship
winner Tyrell Hatton who are both
two shots adrift.
Molinari was in fine form in
front of his home fans, birdieing
the third, sixth and ninth holes
and then picking up further shots
at the 14th and 17th.
The Italian said: ?I played very
well. I think the game has been
improving throughout the week,
which is important. I didn?t make
too many putts, missed by inches,
but I?m happy.
?I know it?s going to be tough
tomorrow, but I?m in good
position.
?I?m sure there?s many other
guys playing well and feeling
happy about their game, so I think
it?s going to be kind of a
shoot-out.
?Matt Wallace is a talented
player and he?s won loads of times

happy to be in the mix.
?I?m glad I?ve put myself in this
position. Hopefully tomorrow
things will go my way like they
did last year. But you know, I can
only control so much, and I?ll try
to do that.?
Hatton, celebrating his 26th
birthday, fared even better than
Molinari on the front nine with
six birdies, including four in a row
from the fourth.
His back nine was less
spectacular but another birdie at
the 14th saw him sign for a 65.
Hatton said: ?I holed quite a
few putts on the front nine and
sadly I just couldn?t make the
most of my opportunities on the
back nine. It was a game of two
halves on the greens but I?m in a
good position going into
tomorrow.?
South African George Coetzee
and Kiradech Aphibarnrat of
Thailand are a shot further back
while the round of the day came
from Tommy Fleetwood, whose
63 took him to 13-under.
It was a less successful day for
Australian Fraser, who is five
shots off the lead in a share of
ninth place after a 72.
Scotland?s Marc Warren, who
has been on a run of good form of

?The wind started

?In hindsight, I should
have taken a three-wood

the only bad swing I made
today.
?The game plan that I
have had has worked
pretty well so far. I am
going to have to look at the

change a few things
depending on whether it is
wet and windy.
?I have been hitting a
tonne of fairways and am
also putting really well. So
if I continue to do that
I should be good
tomorrow.?
Scotland?s Grant Forrest
is lying in third on
13-under-par after adding
his second consecutive 68.
Also impressing during
yesterday?s third round in
China was 17-year-old
amateur Lin Yuxin.
The home favourite
made six birdies during a
bogey-free 66 to move into
the top five in Sanya and
become the highestranked Chinese player in
the field.
Erik van Rooyen
Pat Perez yesterday extended his lead at the
CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur to four shots
after shooting an eight-under-par 64.
The American, looking for his third career
victory on the PGA Tour, carded nine birdies
against one bogey in his third round, having
improved by one shot in every round so far.
Perez, who led by a single stroke coming
into yesterday, turned on the style on the
back nine with six birdies. After three
rounds, Perez is on 21-under 195.
?These guys are so good and you can
make so many birdies out there so fast and I
know that,? said Perez.
?So if I can get another six birdies
tomorrow, I might be tough to catch.?
Schauffele remained within sight of his
compatriot after a five-under 67 ?
including an eagle on the 10th ? while
South Korea?s Sung Kang is a further shot
away after a seven-under-par 65.
Japan?s Hideki Matsuyama?s nine-underpar 63 was the lowest score of the day in the
Malaysian capital and took him into a tie for
fourth place alongside American Keegan
Bradley.
Meanwhile, defending champion Justin
Thomas?s chances appear over after he
finished the day tied 24th at six-under-par,
despite posting his best round with a 69.
The US PGA champion and Player of the
Year had a double bogey on the par-5 fifth
hole, but recovered with a flurry of birdies
and an eagle on No. 16.
Clear skies at TPC Kuala Lumpur brought
out the best from Whee Kim with a hole-inone on the 199-yard, par-3 15th. The South
Korean won a BMW hybrid vehicle.
?It landed perfect and thought: ?Oh made
it, it?s going to go in,?? Kim said.
Meanwhile, Korean Jin Young Ko, who is
perhaps best known for her runner-up spot
at the 2015 Ricoh Women?s British Open,
yesterday stole the limelight from some of
the biggest names in women?s golf at the
LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship, firing
a flawless six-under-par 66 to surge two
strokes clear of the field ahead of today?s
final round.
Ko racked up six birdies on the Ocean
Course, including two in her last three
holes, to post a 15-under total of 201 on a
sunny and breezy day at SKY72 Golf &
Resort.
World No. 2 Sung Hyun Park, who has a
mathematical chance of taking over at the
top of the Rolex Rankings should she win
today, carded a third-round 68 to finish at
13-under, level with World No. 7 In Gee
Chun, who also returned a 68.
England?s Charley Hull lies in a three-way
share of 11th on nine-under-par.

By John Barrett

Jurgen Klopp insisted
that Jose Mourinho?s
defensive tactics would
not be acceptable at
Liverpool after
Ma n c h e s t e r Un i t e d
earned a goalless draw
at Anfield for the second
successive season.
Liverpool dominated
possession, but could not
break down United?s
defence as Klopp?s men
drew a third straight
game.
?I think Man United
came here for the point
and they got it,? he said.
?I?m sure if we played
like this, you could not do
this at Liverpool.
O bv i o u s l y f o r M a n
United it is OK.
?Obviously they had a
more defensive approach
but that?s completely
fine. They wanted a point
so they are happy and we
are not happy because
we wanted three.
?We were dominant,
but it was a home game
and we should be.
?M a y b e w e d i d n?t
create enough chances,
but that is to concentrate
on the negative. We have
to stay positive and the
boys gave me enough
reasons to stay positive.
?We learned a lot from
the last game at
Newcastle and we
protected our offensive
situations much better.
? We defended well
against
Lukaku,
M k h i t a r y a n , Yo u n g ,
Rashford.
The
performance was not
perfect otherwise we
would have won, but we
had the big chance and
maybe got a penalty and
it?s 2-0. How big a result
do you want against
Manchester United?
?There are no games
when your opponents
sleep for 90 minutes and
you can do what you
want.
?They defended with
nine players around the
box. That?s OK, I don?t
judge this, but it makes
our job more difficult.
?But we played our
football. You can?t buy
easy goals in football, you
have to work for them
and I was really happy
that the boys were really
ready for this game.
? Yo u c a n?t w i n
something when you are
in a holiday mood, but
we aren?t in a holiday
mood and we are really
working hard.
?I really like how they
handled this situation.
Could they have done
better? Yes, but is it really
likely we could have done
much better.
?My job is to ask what I
can get, not for them to
play like Barcelona. I
want them to play as well
as they can and that?s
what they did.
?It?s only not good if
you look at the table and
say we can?t do this or
that any more.
?There was supposed
to be one team in this
stadium that can win the
title, but it?s not like we
are on different planets.
?I am happy about the
consistency
of
performance. I think the
performance was worth
three points. We were the
better side.?
Mohamed Salah and Matteo Darmian, top; and a tribute to ?King Kenny? Dalglish in the stand now bearing his name
jose mouriNho
jurgeN klopp
?It was a good performance, I
thought worthy of three points. We
were unlucky in at least two, maybe
three, situations ? of course the big
chance when De Gea made the save.
?There were a lot of good
individual performances. Even when
the last few games for us were not
perfect, we were clear and
concentrated.?
?In the first we had the ball and were
always compact. We had a few shots
in the second half.
?Sometimes you try and the game
doesn?t go in the direction you
want. If we score in the first half, the
second half is different.
?When I brought on Rashford and
Lingard it was to give Klopp more
space to counter, but he didn?t do it.?

In the end nothing was proven
and no questions were
answered.
United still haven?t beaten
anyone in the top half of the
Premier League and Liverpool are
still to make an impact on the title
race.
Romelu Lukaku passed up the
chance to show he can win the big
matches as well as the
run-of-the-mill ones, while Jurgen
Klopp still has a very good record
against top six teams.
Liverpool did at least show they
are capable of keeping a clean
sheet, but that was no real feat
against a team who never really
looked interested in scoring.
Jose Mourinho invented the
phrase ?park the bus? and this was
straight from the advance drivers?
handbook.
His tactics helped ensure the first
match played in front of the Kenny
Dalglish Stand, renamed in honour
of the Liverpool and Scotland
legend, finished goalless.
There was one decent chance for
each team and two very good stops
from the keepers, but on both
occasions the ball should have
been in the net.
Simon Mignolet saved well from
Lukaku when he was clean through
on goal in the 43rd minute.
Nine minutes earlier David De
Gea had made a save with his foot
from Joel Matip.
The only other noteworthy effort
came from Emre Can in the 56th
minute, and he really should have
done better when he volleyed over
from Joe Gomez?s centre.
Still, on the weekend he
celebrates two years at the club,
Klopp may have not won any
trophies, but he?s lost only twice in
21 games against the established
top six clubs.
United stay unbeaten, which was
clearly Mourinho?s bottom line, but
there remains a suspicion that
while they can pulverise average
teams, they might not have quite
enough against their main rivals.
Mourinho?s plan was clear from
the off ? pack their own half, let
Liverpool have the ball, take the
sting out of the game and wait.
So Liverpool were left to attack
and needed no second invitation.
Roberto Firmino got round the
back, but Chris Smalling?s challenge

could only stab the ball at De Gea.
Wijnaldum then curled in a 20-yard
shot which barely troubled De Gea.
Firmino hit one from 30 yards and
troubled him even less.
Liverpool did come close in the
21st minute when Firmino picked
up on a Phil Jones error, but his
cross was deflected just beyond the
foot of Mo Salah by Matteo Darmian.
United?s first real attempt came
on the half-hour from Nemanja
Matic ? a drive just over the angle
from 25 yards.
Liverpool?s big opportunity came
four minutes later ? a double
chance to take the lead and they
fluffed both elements.
Firmino bamboozled Jones and
crossed low. Matip, five yards out,
struck De Gea?s foot with his shot
and as Jones nudged a clearance to
Salah the Egyptian fired wide.
Salah found De Gea?s arms a
couple of minutes later, but at least
Liverpool were beginning to make
United look a little more
uncomfortable.
Two minutes from the break
Lukaku had his big chance after a
one-two with Anthony Martial, but
Mignolet made a terrific save.
This had been no powderkeg of a
contest between two fierce rivals,
however there was a minor kerfuffle
just before the break when Lukaku
tangled with Dejan Lovren.
The defender rolled around
holding his head. Referee Martin
Atkinson was adamant that any
contact was accidental, though
Klopp felt it was worth a red card.
Jones carelessly gave the ball
away at the start of the second half,
but rescued himself and his team
with a good challenge to stop
Firmino turning in Coutinho?s cross.
Wijnaldum lifted one over the
bar after Coutinho?s blocked effort
fell awkwardly at his feet.
Mourinho then threw on the
pace of Jesse Lingard and Marcus
Rashford to give his defenders more
options for the out ball and to
tempt Klopp to open up a bit.
However, Liverpool continued to
run into United?s grey wall and
when they did get a sniff they never
looked like making anything of it.
An increasingly desperate Salah
missed the target twice, De Gea had
to scramble to claim a loose ball
that was running away from him
and Salah couldn?t quite grow
enough to get a head to a Coutinho
cross.
Klopp brought on Daniel

By John Barrett

Jose Mourinho complained afterwards
that Jurgen Klopp didn?t give Manchester
United the opportunity to snatch all
three points at Anfield.
The Portuguese also admitted that
Liverpool?s midfield was just too strong
for his own, which was missing Paul
Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.
?The second half was a bit of chess,
but my opponent didn?t open the door
for me to win the game,? he said.
?I felt my team was waiting for me to
do something, but I couldn?t do anything
with no midfield player on the bench.
?I was waiting for Jurgen to change
and go more attacking, but he kept the
same three strong players in midfield
where he had control.
?Today his midfield was stronger than
mine and I had no one to make a
difference.
?When you?re at home and you don?t
move anything, it?s strange.
?They played 90 minutes with the
same midfield and I thought playing at
home, seven points behind us, they are
going to change. They never did.
?But I honestly think he did well
because he didn?t let the game break up.
?I am not criticising. It was good
pressing and a ver y good team
performance from him from a defensive
point of view.
?The only chance I had to change the
direction of the game was to bring on
quicker players to go one against one.
?When they changed they changed
man-for-man in attack. They kept their
three midfield players in the centre of
the pitch and I had no chance to answer.
?I need to play against Jordan
Henderson, Emre Can and Georginio
Wijnaldum with power and energy. I had
no power and energy.
?I only had two midfield players and
had no one else to compensate that.
?I don?t like to speak about it and it?s
unfair on Ander Herrera and Nemanja
Matic, because they gave everything, but
I was feeling for players I didn?t have.
?I had no chance to bring the game in
another direction so I think it is a positive
point for us.?

Andy Carroll left West Ham high
and dry as his reckless dismissal
left them scrambling for a point
against Burnley.
Carroll was touted for an England
recall last week, but that particular
bandwagon hit the skids as soon as the
striker picked up two cautions in as
many first-half minutes.
That left the Hammers with more
than an hour to protect Michail
Antonio?s freak goal ? slotted into an
open net after Ben Mee and goalkeeper
Nick Pope both failed to connect with
the ball ? and Chris Wood pounced late
to deny the visitors their first back-toback wins of the season.
Antonio?s 19th-minute opener at Turf
Moor came from nothing more subtle
than a heave upfield from Joe Hart. The
Hammers forward set off in pursuit, but
would not have got near goal had Mee
not failed to make contact, nor Pope
wave both ball and player towards goal.
The only thing left for a grateful Antonio
to do was roll into an open net.

brushing off Cheikhou Kouyate and
causing flutters in the West Ham
defence with a teasing free-kick.
And then Carroll bundled into centre
stage. He had already shared a couple of
asides with referee Stuart Atwell when
he went up with James Tarkowski and
was booked for leading with the elbow.
He pleaded innocence and then,
around 90 seconds later, hurled himself
into an even clearer booking, this time
leaving his mark on Mee.
There were three changes for the
second period, Burnley summoning
Sam Vokes and Johann Berg

It made for a wide open second

with a chance at the far post, and was
then denied by Pope after a snappy
passing move.
Burnley regularly raided, but when
Gudmundsson?s low drive landed safe
after hitting both a post and Hart?s back,
it began to feel like it was not their day.
However, Wood eventually salvaged a

MANCHESTER CITY had already
managed five and six-goal hauls this
season. This time, they produced a
magnificent seven.
Stoke became the latest victims of Pep
Guardiola?s side as they were blitzed by a
mesmerising display of attacking football,
which the former Barcelona and Bayern
Munich manager acknowledged as the best
performance of his City reign.
Their defence was breached for the first
time since the end of August, but it did not
matter when they were in this sort of mood at
the other end.
And thanks to Manchester United?s goalless
draw at Liverpool at lunchtime, City opened
up a two-point cushion over their neighbours
at the top of the table.
They picked up exactly where they left off
before the international break for a ninth
straight win in all competitions and became
the first team in Premier League history to
score 29 goals in the first eight games in a
season.
There were six different goalscorers, but the
conductor-in-chief was Kevin De Bruyne.
The midfielder did not score, but the
talented Belgian was the player pulling the
strings, and both managers were singing his
praises afterwards.
?We talk about Kevin again,? smiled
Guardiola. ?He was so dynamic.
?When he has the ball in positions close to
their area, our wingers, strikers and attacking
midfielders know to move because the ball is
coming.
?He is a very talented player and he made a
very good performance. But you cannot score
seven goals without everyone playing well.?
City?s Kevin De Bruyne was superb
Despite watching his team receive a hiding,
Stoke boss Mark Hughes went even further in
his acclaim for De Bruyne.
He said: ?We have been found wanting
against a team that have genuine world-class
players.
?But Kevin De Bruyne is head and
shoulders above any other player in the
Premier League with his level of performance
and how he can dictate the game.
?At 3-2 we were back in it, but players like
De Bruyne grab the initiative and take it away
from you.?
Leroy Sane had already missed a sitter
before City grabbed three goals in 10 minutes
to set them on their way.
De Bruyne found the overlapping Kyle
Walker down the right, and the full-back
looked up before presenting striker Gabriel
Jesus with a tap-in. Then, barely two minutes

Possession
later, the second goal arrived. Sane laid it
back to De Bruyne on the edge of the box and
everyone expected the Belgian playmaker to
shoot.
He had other ideas and played a sublime
reverse pass back to Sane, which caught the
Stoke defence off guard and allowed for Sane
to square for teammate Raheem Sterling to
finish it off.
It was simple, but brilliant and it brought
Guardiola to his feet.
?I am a spectator as well as a manager,? he
enthused. ?In that moment you expect Kevin
to shoot, you don?t expect that.
?The crowd enjoyed it and I enjoyed it,
too!?
The third was another team effort as City
toyed with their opponents.
Jesus, Sane and Sterling were all involved
again before David Silva steered his shot
beyond a bewildered Jack Butland in goal.
However, having been on the ropes, the
visitors scored two quick goals either side of
half-time to grab themselves a short-lived
lifeline.
Mame Biram Diouf scored via the aid of a
Fabian Delph deflection for the first and then
headed against Walker for the second, which
went down as an own goal for the former
Tottenham man.
That had come from an excellent cross by
18-year-old debutant Thomas Edwards. Sadly,
the teenager?s afternoon ended minutes later
as he was carried off with an ankle injury after
a hefty challenge by Delph.
But if the visitors thought they were back in
it, they were mistaken as City plundered a
further three more goals in the space of seven
minutes.
De Bruyne ? who else ? set up two of them
with exquisite passes which Jesus and Sane
gleefully fired home.
While in between those, Fernandinho took
aim from more than 25 yards and found the
top corner with a thunderous strike.
De Bruyne was then taken off to a richly
deserve standing ovation after 66 minutes,
but there was still time for a seventh for
rampant City.
More neat football allowed Bernardo Silva
to poke home his first goal for the club and
round off a memorable display.

DEENEY completely
changed the game
when he came on
as sub and inspired
Watford to a terrific
victory
Tom Cleverley hit a lastgasp winner as Watford
came from behind to beat
Arsenal and check the
Gunners? recent run of
form.
The former Manchester
United man lashed home
in stoppage time after the
visitors were unable to
clear their lines.
Per Mertesacker had
headed Arsenal ahead
with his first league goal
in 1400 days, only for a
contentious Troy Deeney
penalty to draw Watford
level, before Cleverley?s
late heroics sealed a
memorable victory.
Arsene Wenger?s side ?
which started without
either Mesut Ozil or Alexis
Sanchez ? had won their
last four games in all
competitions following a
slow start, but they were
poor for much of the
contest. A point would
have seen Arsenal
leapfrog Chelsea into
fourth, but it was Marco
Silva who was instead left
toasting a place in the top
four.
Wenger made four
changes as Mertesacker
and Laurent Koscielny
came into the back three,
with Shkodran Mustafi
injured on international
duty and Rob Holding
named as a substitute.
Both Aaron Ramsey
and Sanchez were left out
completely due to fatigue,
with Ozil only named on
a strong Arsenal bench.
Roberto Pereyra,
playing for the first time
since suffering an injury
in the opening day draw
with Liverpool, had the
game?s first decent
chance, but headed well
wide. Arsenal were
struggling to create any
openings and Mohamed
Elneny?s long-range effort
over the crossbar was
their best opportunity of
the opening 30 minutes.
The opener came soon
after as Mertesacker rose
to head home Granit
Xhaka?s corner from six
yards out, marking his
first League start in
almost 18 months with
a rare goal.
Xhaka then forced a
smart stop from Heurelho

Rafa Benitez admits he must try to spring a surprise on
Mauricio Pellegrino when Newcastle United visit
Southampton today.
That?s because Pellegrino knows Toon boss Benitez
so well after playing under him with Valencia and
Liverpool, and being on his backroom staff at Anfield
and Inter Milan.
Benitez said: ?It?s strange, especially with Mauricio, as
he played for me and he was also my assistant.
?Now he is on the other side and we will be wondering
what each other is thinking, so it will be interesting.
?We will try to surprise him, but the problem is that
when you have been the manager and he was your
assistant, he knows what you?re thinking.??
Benitez has backed the former Argentina defender to
meet Southampton?s demanding standards.
The Saints turned to Pellegrino in the summer after
sacking Claude Puel ? even though the Frenchman led
them to an eighth-place Premier League finish and the
EFL Cup final in his only season in charge.
Benitez insisted: ?In terms of character and spirit, I
think he can cope. It always depends on results, but you
can see they?re a team that are well-organised.??
Benitez has been happy to pass on advice to
Pellegrino because he knows the value of learning from
more experienced bosses ? among them Sir Alex
Ferguson and Tony Pulis.
The Magpies? boss said: ?We have managers from
Spain and America coming to see us in the next few
months because I was doing that when I was a young
manager, travelling the world to watch the way things
were done in different countries.
?I went to Italy and the first manager I followed was
Arrigo Sacchi. I had a good relationship with him. Then
I had three days at Fiorentina and Valencia when
Claudio Ranieri was there.
?I also watched Fabio Capello at this time. I have
been to America, around the world and in Spain,
obviously, with Vicente Del Bosque ? I was his assistant.
?I like to see different people, different approaches. I
came here to see Alex Ferguson for one week.
?I watched Tony Pulis, who is my friend. I was
watching him for a couple of days when he was at Stoke.
I was in between jobs at the time.??
Meanwhile, Benitez says Newcastle skipper Jamaal
Lascelles ? recently involved in a training-ground
punch-up with Mo Diame ? first showed his captaincy
potential in a 3-1 defeat at Southampton two seasons
ago.
Lascelles issued a half-time tongue-lashing to more
senior teammates, and Benitez said: ?With what was
going on, you could see his potential, but you have to
analyse your squad and see who can grow into a leader
? and he was maybe the best option.??

Everton starlet Tom Davies
Tom proved to
be a big hit
Down Under
By John Barrett
sport@sundaypost.com
Tom Davies is only 19, and can still count his Premier
League starts on his fingers and toes. But he knew his
life had changed forever when he was recognised at
Ayers Rock in the summer.
He may have been 10,000 miles from his Merseyside
home after treating his family to a visit Down Under,
but it was a light bulb moment for the Everton
midfielder.
?This Australian guy came up to me and asked me if
I was Tom Davies,? he recalls. ?It was surreal and it
showed me just how much it means to play for Everton.
?I have a cousin in Australia. I took my mum and dad,
my brother, his girlfriend and a close family friend out
there. I probably wouldn?t have been able to do that
before I broke into the team last season.?
Davies was one of Ronald Koeman?s big successes
after he was promoted from the Academy to star in the
senior side during the second half of last season.
However, the teenager had to take a step back when
the club re-signed Wayne Rooney and splashed out big
style on Glyfi Sigurdsson and Davy Klaassen, all of
whom play in Davies? position.
However, he is not daunted by either the stellar
competition or the disappointing start his boyhood
team have made to the campaign.
?We?ve had a lot of new signings and they are all
quality players,? he says. ?We just need to get them to
gel.
?I never expected my career to be all roses, and it?s a
challenge for me to show the coach and fans why I
deserve a place.
?There aren?t too many negative ways of looking at it.
It should push you on because the standards have gone
up.
?I?m definitely working on trying to get ahead of the
players that were brought in.
?It?s always more difficult in your second season. I?ve
figured that out this year.
?People say we?re all similar players, but I don?t agree.
I bring a lot of energy and get around the pitch. It?s
about finding a system that works.
?I grew up two minutes from Everton?s training
ground and remember Wayne scoring his first goal at
16.
?It was kind of weird when he came back, seeing him
there on the training pitch, but it?s quite natural now.
?It?s great for me because he helps me a lot. When I?m
unsure of my performance he always has a chat with
me.
?I accept it?s more difficult to throw young players in
when results are not coming.
?If they don?t play well young players can sometimes
go under, and that could be the end of it. It?s much
easier to come into a team that?s doing well.?
Crystal Palace deservedly claimed a
first Premier League win of the
season with victory over champions
Chelsea at Selhurst Park.
Palace received a stroke of luck in
scoring their first league goal in five
months, ending a drought of 731 minutes
stretching back to last season.
The scruffy strike was recorded as a
Cesar Azpilicueta own goal, but Palace
had one of their own when the excellent
Wilfried Zaha struck before half-time as
Palace won for the first time this season
at the eighth attempt.
Chelsea, who had equalised through
Tiemoue Bakayoko, had been seeking to
respond from the loss to Manchester City
ahead of Wednesday?s Champions
League clash with Roma. The Blues are
now nine points behind leaders City after
a poor performance.
Palace, who won at Chelsea in April,
had not scored a league goal since
Patrick van Aanholt?s last-minute strike
in the comnprehensive 4-0 win over Hull
on May 14.
Their dismal start to the season was
expected to continue against the
champions, but the return of Zaha from
injury galvanised his team-mates and
they turned in a match-winning, and
heart-warming, performance.
Andros Townsend had a spring in his
step alongside Zaha and the pair
tormented the Chelsea defence
throughout.
Townsend early on found Zaha, who
turned away from Azpilicueta before
seeing his shot saved by Thibaut
Courtois. The only surprise when Palace

Townsend snuck in behind Marcos
Alonso and pulled the ball back for Yohan

His attempt to control the ball was
interrupted by Luiz, it ricocheted back off
the Frenchman and wrong-footed
Courtois by deflecting off Azpilicueta.
The joy and relief was soon followed by
wit. ?We?re Crystal Palace, we score when
we want,? sang home supporters.
The celebrations were short lived. A
Cesc Fabregas corner was met by
Bakayoko, who lost his marker and
headed the ball into the ground and the
net for his first Premier League goal.
Palace, and Zaha, would not roll over.
Zaha ran at Chelsea and his shot
deflected wide.
The Blues had another good chance
when Michy Batshuayi ? given an
opportunity with Spanish frontman
Alvaro Morata kept in reserve for Roma
due to his fragile hamstring ? headed

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN
provided the
game?s defining
moment as Spurs
only just edged past
the Cherries.
Tottenham are finally off the
mark at Wembley after
Christian Eriksen sealed a
narrow win over Bournemouth
and his side?s first Premier
League victory under the arch.
This was still not the
imperious Spurs of White Hart
Lane last season, but Eriksen at
least gave their stop-start
display a positive finish, his
second-half strike securing a
morale-boosting victory.
While Mauricio Pochettino?s
men stay third, five points off
league leaders Manchester
City, Bournemouth remain
pointless from what is now
four league games on the road.
They sit 19th.
Harry Kane has rightly taken
the plaudits in recent weeks for
his relentless scoring form, but
on a rare off-day ? his first
game in six without a goal ? it
was Eriksen?s turn to assume
the limelight.
Eriksen has been by far
Tottenham?s best supporting
act during Kane?s golden streak
and after scoring twice in two
games for Denmark during last
week?s the international break,
another here means he now
has four in five for club and
country.
Bournemouth certainly had
chances of their own, but
manager Eddie Howe must
add some edge to their
creativity if they are to avoid a
relegation battle this term.
The Cherries have managed
only four goals in eight league
games so far.
With Ben Davies ill, Jan
Vertonghen started on the left
side of a back four for Spurs
while Joshua King was passed

off a hamstring injury.

sent on for Batshuayi, who showed
frustration at being withdrawn after
a rare start.
Veteran Argentine stopper Julian
Speroni, 38, who was starting his
first league game in 18 months for
Palace, twice saved from Pedro and
once from Alonso.
Charly Musonda, on for Willian
midway through the second half,
had a glorious chance, but, after
controlling Fabregas? lofted pass on
his chest, fired over.
Palace had opportunities for a
third as they finished on the attack.
Zaha tried to seize upon a mix-up
between Bakayoko and Luiz,
Townsend had an effort saved by
Courtois, who was relieved to see
the follow up sent wide by Van
Aanholt.
Wilfried Zaha?s goal
came at a great time
for Palace, giving them
the lead just before the
interval and something
to hang on to in the
second period.

a first league win at Wembley
except for two Bournemouth
chances that arrived in quick
succession.
First, Adam Smith, once
of Tottenham?s academy,
pulled back for Junior
Stanislas, but the finish was
deflected wide of the shoulder
of Davinson Sanchez.
Then from the resulting
corner central defender Toby
Alderweireld almost turned
the ball into his own net, but
keeper Hugo Lloris was quick
to get down and claw it away
to safety.
Otherwise, it looked like the
same old Wembley story for
Spurs, possession aplenty, but
tempo lacking and chances
few and far between.
Two minutes into the
second period, however,
Tottenham finally struck.
The gifted Eriksen received a
pass inside from Son Heungmin and while Simon Francis
slid in to block the Dane?s
drive forward, the ball
cannoned kindly, allowing
the midfielder to eventually
steer cooly into the bottom
corner.
Spurs now had a spring in
their step and Kane might
have had a hat-trick before the
hour mark as he saw a headed
goal correctly chalked off for
offside, before Asmir Begovic
pulled off two excellent
close-range saves.
Kane then sliced an
ambitious volley out for a
throw-in soon after.
Skeptics may say it might
have found the top corner in
September. The upshot,
however, was that
Bournemouth were still in the
contest and when ex-Spurs
favourite Jermain Defoe came
on to a rapturous reception
with 15 minutes to play, the
stage seemed set for the
England striker to upset his
former club.
He almost did too, forcing
Lloris into a smart save at his
near post after fellow
substitute Jordon Ibe had
played him in with a neat
reverse pass.
Dele Alli could have added a
final flourish, but headed
wide, while a four-versus-one
counter-attack resulted only in
Harry Winks firing over.
There is still room for
improvement for Tottenham.

Huddersfield stirred to life midway
through the first half when Elias

Ince also felt he should have been

Lossl?s clearance, but there seemed

the Terriers forward went to ground.
Swansea?s attacks had started to peter

Huddersfield sent on Aaron Mooy

behind The headlines
End could be
nigh for Toffees
boss Koeman
There is every possibility this could be Ronald
Koeman?s final week in charge of Everton.
Back in August, that prospect was unthinkable
because the Dutchman was being universally touted
as the man most likely to break up the cosy six-club
cartel at the top of the Premier League.
Thanks to the investment of major shareholder,
Farhad Moshiri, he had been given unprecedented
funds ? more than �0m ? to make it happen.
He?d shattered the club?s transfer record for Gylfi
Sigurdsson. He?d brought Wayne Rooney back. He?d
signed the brightest of young English prospects in
Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford.
What could possibly go wrong?
However, if Koeman loses at Brighton today, is still
bottom of his Europa League group after Thursday?s
match against Lyon and is defeated at Arsenal next
Sunday, then the club will probably have no option
but to fire him.
Of course, three wins and we?ll wonder what all the
fuss was about. Unfortunately, there?s been little to
suggest they have that sort of response in them.
Peter Reid, one of the legends of Howard Kendall?s
two-time Champions of the 1980s, has raised doubts
about the character of the current squad.
?The team I was in could scrap,? he said. ?I am not
sure this team can.?
Both Koeman and Moshiri have claimed it was
unrealistic to expect Everton to challenge the top four,
despite the biggest spending spree in the club?s history.
That?s probably true. But an improvement on their
customary seventh position was a legitimate
expectation, given that they spent more than
Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
Instead, they?ve lost four of their opening seven
League games and, in the Europa League, were
beaten 3-0 by Atalanta and drew at home against
10-man Cypriot minnows, Apollon Limassol.
Moshiri has pleaded for time for the new signings.
But, in truth, it?s looked like if you add Rooney,
Sigurdsson, Pickford, Keane, Davy Klaassen, Sandro,
Nikola Vlasic and Henry Onyekuru together, it doesn?t
make up for one Romelu Lukaku.
The failure to replace the Belgian has been the
single most-significant factor in Everton?s struggles.
Koeman has lots of players to fill the No. 10 role,
but none to be the No. 9. Such has been the lack of
planning, that he?s been forced to play Oumar Niasse,
who was told to find a new club in the summer.
Apart from missing Lukaku?s goals, the team has
also been left with a chronic lack of pace. That?s fatal
in the modern Premier League.
So now Koeman faces the severest test yet of his
management career. After impressing at
Southampton, and again in his first season at
Everton, he?d even been earmarked as a future
Barcelona boss.
That looks a long way away at the moment. So does
seventh place!
Ronald Koeman is a man under pressure

The legend wriTes for you
I?m told some people have
stated I should be considered
for the vacant Scotland job.
Naturally, I?m flattered that
anyone would think I am the
man to lead our country?s
national team.
Howe v e r, i t w o u l d b e
disrespectful of me to state in
public ? whether it?s through
my Sunday Post column or
anywhere else ? what my
personal thoughts are on this
subject.
All that I think it is
appropriate to say is that if the
SFA should contact me, then
they will get to hear my
thoughts on whether I?d be
interested in succeeding
Gordon Strachan, or not.
Only they will get to hear my
answer. Nobody else.
I?m not trying to be evasive.
I?m not trying to be awkward.
It?s just the way I have
preferred to operate
throughout my career.
In any dealings I?ve had,
whether they have come to
fruition or not, I have always
tried my best to keep things
private and keep things quiet.
Some people prefer to go
p u b l i c , w h e t h e r i t ?s t o
champion their own case or
champion someone else.
That is entirely up to them,
it?s their prerogative.
SFA are kidding
themselves on,
but if they want
me as manager,
I?ll tell them ?
not anyone else
I still wish Gordon
Strachan was in
charge of Scotland
I don?t necessarily have a
problem with it. But it?s just
not my style.
What is crucial in the
selection process over the
coming days, weeks or
months, is that it is absolutely
down to the SFA to decide who
they want to be the next
person in charge of the
national side.
They should dictate how
they go about it. They must
not allow themselves to be
influenced by people from
outside.
That?s why it?s important for
things to remain private.
For example, if they are not
able to attract their number
one target into the job ? or
indeed target number two or
number three ? you do not
want the person who
eventually does get the job to
be undermined.
So I feel the more respectful
the SFA is in handling this job
search, the better it will be for
our country.
It won?t guarantee success or
qualification for the Euro Finals
in 2020. But it will give the new
manager a better chance of
succeeding and getting off to
the best possible start.
So near yet ...
Gordon
Strachan
(right) and
Leigh Griffiths,
Barry Bannan
and Charlie
Mulgrew
show the
anguish of
missing out
on a World
Cup play-off
in Llubljana
last Sunday
That said, I still wish Gordon
Strachan was in charge.
If the Wee Man has decided
that he just wanted to try
something different, or just
simply get out, then that?s fair
enough.
However, if it?s been solely
the SFA?s decision, then I think
they are kidding themselves
on if they believe they can
appoint someone better than
Gordon to the job and deliver
the success we all crave.
There has been a massive
improvement during this
calendar year, but we have
missed that little bit of good
fortune when we have really
needed it.
Even thinking back to the
Euro 2016 qualifiers, we
conceded last-minute goals to
Germany and Poland.
We also took four points
from six off the Republic of
Ireland ? yet they qualified for
France and we didn?t.
Indeed, those three
countries from Scotland?s
group went on to the last 16 of
the tournament and beyond.
More recently, during the
Wo r l d C u p q u a l i f y i n g
campaign, we led England 2-1
at Hampden.
Then in the final minute, we
go from having a three-onone counter-attack situation
in our favour, to conceding a
goal to Harry Kane.
The manager can?t be
blamed for all of that.
Just last month, we turned
in one of Scotland?s best away
performances in years in
Lithuania when we won 3-0.
The tempo, flow, creativity
and execution were all a joy to
watch.

Hammer of the

beating Malta, and I thought we
were possibly on the verge of
something special and exciting.
But from there we lost Scott
Brown for the double-header
against Slovakia and Slovenia.
To lose our captain and
leader was a massive blow.
Yes, one man doesn?t make
a team, but Scott has been so
influential for club and
country and he gets the best
out of his team-mates when
he is on the park.
Nothing against the other
players in the squad, but
losing him was always going
to leave the team up against it.
On the flip side, I?m aware of a
counter argument from some
that it is time for change
because Gordon had two
campaigns and failed to
deliver.
However, this was our tenth
attempt at trying since we
qualified for France 98.
Gordon has only had two
goes at it. I think he was
entitled to one more.
But he has now gone and we
wait to see who his successor
will be.
Be sure of this ? Gordon will
be a hard act to follow. The
next person in has a really
tough job.
There isn?t a transfer market
available to international
managers and a lot of what
they do is dictated by the
players they have and the
clubs they play for.
There is no point in having
six Celtic players in the team,
then playing a long-ball game.
That is not what they are used
to.
So, in many ways, it is so
much tougher than being at
club level, and so much more
frustrating because of the lack
of time you get on the coaching
pitch with the players.
But the next person will
need to get on with it and get
the very best out of the players.
He will also hope there are
two or three real quality
youngsters ready to make the
breakthrough.
He will also need more luck
than the Wee Man ever got.
I?ll always be a Scotland
supporter.
So, w h o e v e r t h e n e x t
manager is, I hope he
succeeds and delivers success.
Roman Bezjak will
always be remembered
as the man who
sounded the death knell
for Scotland?s hopes of
qualifying for next
year?s World Cup.
The Slovenian striker
str uck twice against
Gordon Strachan?s men
last Sunday, which left
them able to do no better
than force a draw on a
night when a win was
needed for a place in the
play-offs.
How e v e r, a s h e
considered
his
contribution to a
qualifying drama spread
across several hundred
miles ? Slovenia?s draw
was also a huge help to
the Republic of Ireland,
who managed to book
their Russian lifeline the
following night ? Bezjak
was able to offer a crumb
of consolation to several
of the distraught visitors.
Leigh Griffiths and
Celtic, he predicts, ought
to have a puncher?s
chance against Bayern
Munich
in
the
Champions League in the
Allianz Arena on
Wednesday night.
?Bayern are one of the
best clubs in the world,
everyone knows this,?
said the 28-year-old, who
is based in Germany with
SV Darmstadt 98.
?Just now, though, they
have some little
problems, with results
not all going the way they
would want them to.
?A club of their stature
is not used to being in the
position of being a
struggler. And because of
that, they are a little
under pressure now.
?They need positive
results in the Bundesliga
(in which they presently
trail their perennial
rivals,
Borussia
Dortmund) and also in
the Champions League.
?So I think this could
be a plus for Celtic. They
can pull off a surprise in
Germany.
?Of course, football
being football, it is also
possible it will go against
them.
?Cer tainly, I think
Leigh Griffiths can be a
danger to Bayern. Maybe
the Celtic wingers, too, as
much of their play seems
to go through the wide
areas.
?I mention Griffiths
because, having seen him
up close last Sunday, he is
a good player, one who
has already scored in this
Champions League
group campaign in
Celtic?s 3-0 win away to
Anderlecht.
?He has really good
movement.
?We saw it in particular
when we played against
Scotland in Glasgow,
where he caused a lot
of problems for our
defence.
?And it was the same
story in Ljubljana, where
he scored a good goal
against us and was always
a threat.
?So he is a dangerous
player for sure, one who
will not be fazed by the
occasion if a chance
comes his way.
?It will be interesting to
see how the game goes.?

Britt Assombalonga scores Boro?s equaliser

to a draw with QPR.

Braithwaite (7), Assombalonga (60)
A sixth goal of the
campaign for Britt
Assombalonga
rescued a point for
Boro at Oakwell.
Three goals in a
frantic opening nine
minutes saw Barnsley
lead 2-1, but the visitors?
top scorer levelled on
the hour to take a share
of the points.
Ashley Fletcher was
unfortunate to turn Zeki
Fryers? in-swinging near
post cross into his own
net, giving Barnsley the
lead after three minutes.
But his side were level
just four minutes later as
Barnsley failed to clear a
corner which fell to
Martin Braithwaite, who
fired home.
Immediately down the
other end, the game saw
its third goal in nine
minutes as Barnsley
regained the lead. Brad
Potts? deflected cross
was met in the middle
by Cameron McGeehan
who headed low past
Darren Randolph.
After a frenetic start,
the game calmed down
with Barnsley happy to
sit back. Fletcher looked
lively and willing to
shoot from distance, but
two long-range shots
either side of the halfhour mark failed to
trouble Adam Davies
in the Tykes? goal.
Soon after, a loose
throw from the Barnsley
keeper found Fletcher
who unselfishly passed
through to Braithwaite,
but Fryers chasing back
denied him the chance
to double his tally.
Nearing half-time
space opened up for
Grant Leadbitter to
strike from 25 yards out,
but his shot flew past the
post and Barnsley held
on to their lead going
into the break.
Fletcher should have
levelled the game three
minutes into the second
half. The ball fell to the
former Manchester
United striker six yards
out, but his shot was
blocked by the sprawling
Davies who was quick to
rush from his line.
Assombalonga, who
had been quiet for much
of the game, drew the
sides level on the hour
mark, placing a low shot

to Davies? left after
Stewart Downing had
sent him through.
Downing then forced
a good save from Davies
who palmed his shot
from the edge of the area
to safety.
In response, Harvey
Barnes could have won
it for the hosts but his
effort rebounded off the
post after the ball fell to
him on the left side of
the area. Boro manager
Gary Monk brought
Patrick Bamford on with
10 minutes to play, but
the remaining minutes
were played out in the
midfield, both teams
forced to settle
for a point.
The Black Cats have now gone a
remarkable 17 games at the Stadium of
Light without claiming a victory, and
remain rooted in the Championship
relegation zone.
Things might have been even worse
for them after Idrissa Sylla?s first-half
header gave QPR a deserved lead, but
a second-half rally saw Aiden McGeady
curl home an excellent equaliser from
the edge of the area.
The visitors are still waiting for their
first away win of the campaign, after they
peppered Jason Steele?s goal in search of
a late winner without any success.
Sunderland were able to welcome
Duncan Watmore back to the starting
line-up after a 10-month absence
because of a cruciate ligament injury,
and the former England Under-21
international was his side?s brightest
attacker from the outset.
The Black Cats have missed Watmore?s
pace and dribbling ability, and after Alex
Smithies made a decent save to deny
George Honeyman in the opening
minutes, the returning forward set up
McGeady for an opportunity that should
really have resulted in a breakthrough.
Having spun past his marker close to
the halfway line, Watmore produced
a slide-rule pass that sent McGeady
galloping clear of the defence.
The Ireland international had plenty of
time to pick his spot, but rolled a weak
side-footed effort well wide of the target.
QPR had spurned chances of their own
Aiden McGeady celebrates after securing a point for Sunderland
by that stage, most notably when Sylla
could only head straight at Steele after
a long ball caused confusion in the
home defence.
There was always a good chance that
Sunderland?s defensive deficiencies
would rear their head again though, and
sure enough some desperate defending
enabled the visitors to open the scoring
seven minutes before the break.
Luke Freeman swung over a corner
from the right-hand side, and with Steele
rooted to his line, Sylla out-jumped
James Vaughan inside the six-yard box
to head home.
Sylla should have added a second goal
shortly before the break, but he blazed
over from eight yards after Jamie Mackie
picked him out with a driven cross.
Mackie was the provider again at the
start of the second half as he pulled the
ball back for Pawel Wszolek to drill a shot
straight at Steele, but Sunderland also
went close shortly after the interval
through Lewis Grabban, who came off
the bench at the interval to replace the
ineffective Vaughan.
Watmore whipped in a cross from
the right, and Grabban?s first-time effort
was creeping in at the near post before
Smithies turned the ball behind for
a corner.
Simon Grayson?s side were a more
threatening proposition with Grabban on
the field, and they equalised shortly after
the hour mark.
Didier Ndong teed up McGeady close
to the edge of the area, and the Irishman
atoned for his first-half miss as he curled
home an exquisite left-footed strike.

STAR MAN: Reading
were indebted to
former Arsenal and
Sunderland keeper
ViTo MANNoNe
and his late heroics
to deny Hernandez.
Vito Mannone saved a
stoppage-time penalty to
ensure Mo Barrow?s goal was
enough to inflict a third
straight league defeat on
former club Leeds.
United were handed a
lifeline after Samuel Saiz was
brought down in the box, but
Mannone kept out Pablo
Hernandez?s weak spot-kick to
give the Royals their first win in
seven games.
Barrow failed to make an
impact during a five-game loan
spell with Leeds towards the
end of last season, but he
showed United what he was
capable of in a match-winning
cameo off the bench. Andy
Lonergan had kept Leeds in the
match only for Barrow to deny
him a clean sheet. Reading
created the only clear-cut
chances of the first half only to
be denied twice by Lonergan.
After Roy Beerens had curled a
shot over, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson
shot straight at Lonergan.
A minute later, the Leeds
goalkeeper was at full stretch to
keep out Sone Aluko?s low
strike. The hosts rarely
threatened in the opening 45
minutes with only lone striker
Pierre-Michel Lasogga getting
sight of the Reading goal.
The German had a weak
header saved by Mannone and
then curled a long-range shot
wide. The pace of the game
lifted after the restart with
Leeds? Eunan O?Kane curling
wide and Dave Edwards firing
over at the other end.
Bodvarsson and Leandro
Bacuna failed to test Lonergan
with efforts but former United
loanee Barrow went closer
when he fired across goal.
There was a sense a goal was
coming and it was Reading
who grabbed it six minutes
from time with Leeds incensed.
The hosts were still
protesting for a free-kick for a
foul on Hernandez when Joey
van den Berg slipped in Barrow
and he shot under Lonergan.
Leeds responded positively
and looked set for a point after
a mazy Saiz run was halted by
a foul, only for Mannone to
guess the right way to keep out
Hernandez?s spot-kick.

introduction of
Fulham captain
ToM CAiRNEy at
half-time changed
the game in favour
of the Cottagers.
A dreadful error seconds from
the end of added time from
Preston goalkeeper Chris
Maxwell cost his team victory
at Fulham. Maxwell dropped a
long hopeful punt from
Fulham?s Tim Ream 16 yards
out and Denis Odoi poked the
loose ball into the empty net.
Jordan Hugill gave Preston
the lead after 18 minutes and
Sean Maguire deflected in Tom
Barkhuizen?s shot to make it
2-0 seven minutes later.
Oliver Norwood pulled one
back from the spot after 72
minutes, but it looked as

Maxwell could only push the

Match
big interview exclusive
by danny stewart
SPORT@SUNDAYPOST.COM
Gordon Strachan?s exit as Scotland
manager has divided the nation.
Some members of the Tartan Army
are happy to see the back of him after
our last chance to reach the World
Cup play-offs blew up in our faces in
Llubljana last Sunday.
For others, what could be viewed
as yet another glorious failure was
evidence enough for Strachan to be
given the chance to make it thirdtime lucky.
The optimists will point to a strong
second half of the Group F campaign,
coupled with the progression of the
likes of Kieran Tierney and Andy
Robertson ? whose superb goal in
Lithuania was the highlight of the
best team display in years ? as reason
to believe success might not be too
far away.
The counter balance to the sight of
a group of players unable to lift their
chins off their chests when the fulltime whistle blew in Slovenia is the
memory of thousands of fans
ecstatically dancing to the darts
favourite, Freed from Desire, after
Slovakia were seen off four days
earlier.
Significantly, the player himself is
not convinced.
?Did we build something? It?s a
tough question, because at the end
of the day, we?ve not done enough,?
the Liverpool defender, who faces a
near-instant return to Slovenia for a
Champions League tie against
Maribor on Tuesday night, replied.
We need to put a
whole campaign
together instead of
doing it in halves
I suppose you can take
positives from the last
couple of games. But at the
end of the day, we failed
?In the last campaign, we got off to
a flyer then the second half was poor.
?In the second half of this one, we
were flying and didn?t lose a game.
It?s the first half that let us down.
?From that point of view, we need
to put a whole campaign together
instead of just doing it in halves.
?If we could have put two of them
together, we were going to one of the
championships.
?The reality is we?ve not done that.
Our target at the start of the
campaign was to reach the World
Cup Finals and we have not managed
to do so.
?I suppose you can take positives
from the last couple of games. But
at the end of the day, we have
failed.?
And regrets? Robertson has a few.
?Realistically, it wasn?t going to
Slovenia and being held to 2-2 that
cost us,? said the player who has
become a regular since making his
debut in a friendly against Poland in
Warsaw back in 2014.
?Looking at the group at the start
of the campaign, you?d probably take
a draw away to Slovenia.
?You saw that, especially in the
first half where we were lucky to be
in the lead. Griff did what he does
and got us a goal with a terrific finish.
But the fact is they dominated
possession.
?Obviously the England game was
a disappointment. But every fan,
every player and every pundit would
have taken a draw against England.
Let?s not be silly about that.
?Harry Kane scored with the last
kick of the ball against us. But they
dominated possession that day and
could have been two-nil up before
we even got back in the game.?
Robertson
was
handed his
Scotland
debut by
Gordon
Strachan
says andy robertson
Where we fell short, Robertson
believes, is in their first home game
of the campaign.
Then, in front of an expectant
36,000, crowd Scotland came within
one minute of what would have been
a humiliating loss to a Lithuania
team they were later comfortably
beaten on their own soil.
As it was, it took James McArthur?s
headed equaliser to scramble a draw
and a point.
?Lithuania at Hampden is the one
we should have won,? argued
Robertson.
?We just weren?t good enough that
day. Had we put in a performance
akin to what we managed in the last
seven games, we would have beaten
them hands down.
?We need to change that, because
there always seems to be one bad
performance, one bad result in the
group.?
?As I say, by the time the next game
comes around, we?ll be ready to go
again.?
Strachan and his assistant,
Mark McGhee, won?t be there, of
course.
And, for all the current chat about
Davie Moyes, Alex McLeish and
Malky Mackay waiting in the wings,
it remains to be seen if the SFA will
have appointed their successors by
then.
Robertson acknowledges some
familiar faces may no longer be in
the Scotland squad, either.
?There might be a few of the older
guys who are thinking about the
future as well,? he said of a group
likely to include Darren Fletcher.
?That happens at the end of every
campaign.
?But we want to keep this group
together because I feel we?ve got a
very good squad.
?One that will fight for each other
? and die for each other.?
History points to Robertson being
the best placed of all the Scotland
players to deal with disappointment.
The Liverpool defender?s senior
career was, after all, launched on a
rejection.
Released by Celtic at Under-15
level in 2012 for being too small ? a
move that proves Gordon Strachan?s
pre-occupation with genetics is
nothing new ? he had two options.
Quit, and build a life outside the
professional game, or go low and try
to climb his way back up.
Robertson chose the latter, with
his progression from the amateurs of
Queen?s Park to a �m move to
Anfield ? via spells with Dundee

The pain of World Cup
failure engulfs Andy
Robertson in Lubljana
last Sunday evening
Football?s man in the know
I like the sentiment behind the
radical proposals to cut out
time-wasting.
However, I have to say I think
cutting matches down ? from two
halves of 45 minutes to 30 minutes
each way ? would be going too far.
The idea is one of several being
considered by the International
Football Association Board (IFAB),
the body that sets the game?s rules.
If followed, referees would be
required to stop their watch each
and every time the ball goes out of
play.
It is argued that if they did so, 30
minutes of ball-in-play action
would equate roughly to what we
get now from 45 minutes plus
stoppage time.
The added benefit would be that
there would be no incentive for
teams to put the ball out of play to
knock time off the clock.
This is something all football fans
have to put up with at times, I think
officials should have to stop their
watches at throw-ins and
set-pieces.
But not to the detriment of the
paying spectator, as could happen
under this proposal.
Instead, I would keep it at 45
minutes so we would get longer
games rather than shorter ones.
Now, I understand this concept
might not meet with universal
approval.
Broadcasters pay a lot of money
to screen matches, much of which
they recoup from selling advertising
slots around the action.
If the experience of other sports is
anything to go by, they will want
more time to do that, not less.
As a general rule, though, I think
it is absolutely right to keep trying
to innovate.
Football is, indeed, a beautiful
game. It is not, however, perfect.
There are always ways to improve,
ways to combat problems like
time-wasting and simulation, for
the enjoyment of the people who
watch and play the game.
We saw a good example of this in
Scotland?s win over Slovakia when
Robert Mak of the visitors was sent
off after diving.
He had been booked earlier in the
game and when keeper Craig
Gordon came out Mak was caught
throwing himself to the ground,
despite no contact taking place.
The referee caught it and showed
him red.
Numerically handicapped for the
rest of the game, they lost and,
United and Hull City ? a tale that
might have made the writers of
?Roy of the Rovers? blush.
Yet nothing, he insists, has come
close to the pain he felt when
Scotland?s World Cup dream died
last Sunday.
?It?s my biggest low, for sure,?
said the 23-year-old.
?It was absolutely brutal to take.
I?ve been relegated, and been
beaten in a Scottish Cup Final. But
it doesn?t get any lower than this.
?It was silent in the changingroom in Slovenia after the game.
Everyone was devastated.
?All your friends and family are
back home watching, every pub is
packed out ? and everyone has
been left disappointed.
?That?s on us. We let everyone
down.
?We know we can?t dwell on this
disappointment for ever. When
you are a footballer, you are going
to get setbacks and you need to get
yourself ready to go again.
?The next couple of months will
be hard because we know we
should be playing in the play-offs.
?You just need to surround
yourself with good people. You
need to go and see your family and
friends. They?ll lift you.
?It will probably take some time,
but at the end of the day we all
represent clubs as well and you
can?t let it affect you there. That?s
not helpful for anyone.
?Teams can bounce back and
individual players can bounce
back. That is one of the beautiful
things about football. It offers you
that opportunity.
?I know that myself, having
worked my way up through the
leagues. But it also gives you some
tough times and this is definitely
one of them.?
It is a fact that even the departure
of Gordon Strachan cannot mask.
13
Slovakia?s Robert Mak saw red
at Hampden
Let?s play for
90 minutes
? and not a
minute less
though they finished as runners-up
in the group, on goal difference,
they were the worst of the nine so
they were the one to miss out on a
play-off place.
So justice was done there and,
just as importantly, seen to be done.
A n y p l a ye r s w a t c h i n g w i l l
hopefully have been dissuaded
from similar attempts to cheat in
the future.
I know from my own experience
that overcoming opposition to
change is not easy.
Back when I was Chief Executive
of the SFA, I pushed hard for a
shutdown in January and February.
You might get bad weather at
other times, but these are the two
months when conditions are almost
always unsuitable for outdoor sport
in this country.
I met with lots of opposition from
traditionalists (that is the kind word
for them) who argued: ?But we have
always played in those months?.
Then, as now, adopting better
practice towards best practice is the
way ahead.
Malky move could work out for Scotland
Malky Mackay in interim charge of the national team isn?t the
worst way for Scotland to go in the wake of Gordon Strachan?s
departure.
Davie Moyes, Alex McLeish, Paul Lambert and Derek McInnes are
others who will come into the frame. But, in the short term, there are
advantages to Malky being given the reins.
As the SFA?s Performance Director, he is already on the
Association?s wage bill. He also has managerial credentials, having
won the Championship title with Cardiff City.
And while there was the issue of the offensive texts, he has
completed equality and diversity training.
Crucially too, he was given the support of the SFA when he was
appointed to his current position.

Celtic gaffer Brendan Rodgers
Celts boss left
fuming over
semi schedule
By Danny Stewart
sport@sundaypost.com
Brendan Rodgers last
night voiced his dismay at
Celtic having to play their
League Cup semi-final
just 62 hours after a
Champions League clash
away to Bayern Munich.
The Scottish champions
are in action in Munich?s
Allianz Arena on
Wednesday night, in a tie
that could go a long way to
determining their chances
of progressing to the
competition?s last 16.
Then, at 12.15pm on
Saturday they?ll face Neil
Lennon?s Hibernian at the
national stadium as they
defend one of the three
domestic trophies they
captured last season.
That has left the Celtic
manager questioning why
his side were not instead
scheduled to fill the second
slot, at 2.30pm a week
today, given to Rangers and
Motherwell.
?I w a s v e r y, v e r y
surprised at the
scheduling,? said Rodgers.
?I assume it is down to
the TV people (BT Sport)
and, if so, they could
certainly have been kinder
to us. We didn?t make any
representations on the
subject because I assumed,
maybe a mistake of mine,
that common sense would
come into it.
?Common sense would
suggest, the team who
were playing in a high-level
game in Germany on the
Wednesday night might
play on the Sunday instead
of an early kick-off on a
Saturday!
?You only need to look at
the number of games, the
level of games, the travel
that the players are making.
?We are one of the
clubs who has a high
percentage of players
away on international duty.
So certainly we could have
been helped. There is no
doubt about it.
?As it is, I am sure Neil
Lennon will be delighted,
because it can make a huge
difference.?
Wednesday?s Bayern tie,
meanwhile, will provide
Rodgers with a reunion
with Arjen Robben, a
player he had under his
charge when coaching at
Chelsea.
?Arjen is someone I
know very, very well. He is
an amazing player and a
great man,? said the Celtic
boss.
?People won?t know this,
but his last game for
Chelsea was against
Hampton & Richmond,
under my charge.
?We needed a game and
I couldn?t get a team. I said
to Jose Mourinho the only
teams I can get in are parttime teams.
?One was Hampton &
Richmond and the other
was Staines. Hampton,
managed by former West
ham star Alan Devonshire,
got back to me first, so it
was them.
?And listen, if Carlsberg
did reserve teams, I had the
best reserve team in the
world there.
?I had Carlo Cudicini in
goal, Juliano Belletti, Alex
at centre-half, a young boy
Nuno Morais beside him.
Van Aanholt, John Mikel
Obi, Scotty Sinclair on the
left, Claudio Pizarro and
Arjen on the right.
?We won 7-0 and he
scored. The next day he
went to Real Madrid. That
tells you all you need to
know about his mentality.
?He is an unbelievable
player, and a guy who
would do anything for
you.?
Celtic?s match-winner Olivier Ntcham celebrates his winning goal with midfield teammate Eboue Kouassi
breNdaN rodgers
?We weren?t as fluent as I would have
liked, our possession of the ball
wasn?t up to the level we would like.
?Naturally, when players are away
and you come together as a group for
the first time yesterday, sometimes
you can lack that wee bit of cohesion.
?We have an incredible mentality,
though, which we showed by achieving
an absolutely brilliant result.?
Neil mccaNN
?The pleasing thing for is I am trying
to change the mind-set of the club
where we want to go and where we
are seeing ourselves is higher than
where we have been.
?Today we were really
disappointed.
?We went toe-to-toe with them,
our bottle didn?t crash and I didn?t
have a single failure in my team.?

A classic ?squiggler? from Olivier
Ntcham ensured Celtic will seek
European glory this week
bolstered by yet another domestic
victory.
In all fairness, though, they
needed some fine saves from Dorus
de Vries not only to protect the win
but also their remarkable unbeaten
domestic run, now stretched to 59
games.
The 36-year-old Dutchman was
one of raft of changes made by the
home team with Wednesday night?s
Champions League match against
Bayern Munich in mind.
Of the players who could
reasonably be expected to feature
in the Allianz Arena, half a dozen
were missing.
International travellers Craig
Gordon, Mikael Lustig and Tom
Rogic were rested.
Scott Brown, Jozo Simunovic and
Stuart Armstrong all got a little
more time to get over recent
injuries.
James Forrest was given a seat on
the substitutes? bench for the day.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has
made something of an art form out
of introducing fringe players into
his side with only a slight loss of
swagger but here they were given a
really good run for their money by
bright and bold Dundee.
Not that Celtic?s more surprising
call-ups ? Cristian Gamboa of Costa
Rica and the Ivorian Eboue Kouassi
? didn?t catch the eye.
The former, making his first
appearance of the season,
impressed with his quick, busy
wing play, long-range passing and
willingness to have a shot on goal.
Kouassi?s contribution was less
flashy, but he provided a muscular
presence in the centre of midfield
somewhat reminiscent of
Tottenham?s Victor Wanyama, who
starred at Celtic Park from 2011-13
before heading south.
He was, however, guilty of giving
the ball away at times and with
Olivier Ntcham doing likewise,
Dundee were given a fair bit of
encouragement which they
gratefully accepted to push forward
again and again.

Celtic had a few of their big
names on show and of them Patrick
Roberts looked particularly in the
mood, driving past defenders for

It was Ntcham who made the
difference, steadying himself when
teed up outside the box before
unleashing a dipping, swerving
right-foot shot which only stopped
moving when it hit the corner of
the net.
From there it was another fringe
man who shone with de Vries
producing three fine stops to deny
Paul McGowan, Deacon and Faissal
El-Bakhtaoui in succession and
Dundee an equaliser.
?Sometimes you get an
opportunity to show what you?ve

?It doesn?t matter how you cut it

should have come from the spot.

penalty. I don?t care if it is

?Anywhere on the pitch that is a
free kick so why not in the box?
?That is what angers managers.
He has been cleaned out and it
should have been a penalty.

50-50 header.
?Well, my big centre-back in

Celtic?s Swedish star Mikael Lustig
By Danny Stewart
sport@sundaypost.com
Mikael Lustig is hoping that flying
Dutchman Arjen Robben won?t be in
the mood to make up for international
disappointment when Celtic take on
Bayern on Wednesday.
33-year-old Robben announced last
week that his 96th cap for Holland would
be his last, after Dick Advocaat?s side
failed to reach the World Cup play-offs.
However, having witnessed his
farewell display at close range, as part of
a Sweden side which went down 2-0 yet
still managed to book their place in
Tuesday?s draw, Lustig is in no doubt the
winger still has plenty to offer the club
game.
?I saw Robben last Tuesday night
when I played for Sweden against
Holland,? he said.
?He scored two goals, so it looks like
he?s in form, doesn?t it?
?He?s looking really good and he?ll be a
big threat for Bayern against us.
?In his career, he has been injured a
lot. But when he has played, performing
his best football, he?s world class ? one of
the best wingers there has ever been.
?That left foot, you know he is going to
go inside but you can?t stop it. He
normally curls it into the far post ? we?ve
seen it so many times.
?When he?s on top form, he is one of
the best around.
?I?m glad he?s on the other side of the
pitch from me! But that?s a great
challenge for Kieran Tierney.
?What can I tell Kieran about Robben?
Get to him early, but if he gets the speed
up it?s very hard.
?I say that because he can go either
way, on the left or right foot. And you
hope to get a midfielder across to help
out.
?KT is a very calm and composed
individual, though, so I am sure he will
be fine. What he has done for Celtic and
Scotland in the last few years has been
incredible.?
The Hoops will go in as huge
underdogs, but Lustig intends to relish
the experience.
?I?ve never played at the Allianz Arena
so this will be my first time. It?s huge, one
of the best stadiums in the world right
now,? he said.

By Brian Fowlie
sport@sundaypost.com
Gary Mackay-Steven believes his
Aberdeen career has finally taken off.
The attacker has had a disappointing
start to his time at Pittodrie
He made more headlines for the
embarrassing incident where he ended
up in the River Kelvin during a night out
than he did for his on-field efforts.
The former Celtic man hopes scoring
his first league goal for the club against
Hibs yesterday will show the Dons fans
he can be a big player.
He said: ?I?ve never lost my selfbelief, but I think I showed what I?m
capable of and proved to the manager
he was right to sign me.
?He has been great for me and I want
to pay him back with good performances.
?All the coaching staff and the boys in
the squad gave me great support
recently and I hope what happened is
in the past now.
?Hopefully, this is the first of many
goals in the league. I want to make the
headlines on the back pages.?
His manager was delighted to see the
27-year-old?s winning contribution.
Derek McInnes said: ?I?m really
pleased for Gary. He was playing
because of the way he trained. I wanted
a ball carrier and someone who could
provide a threat from the wider areas.
?That?s the best I?ve seen him in an
Aberdeen shirt.
?We have a few players we picked up
who haven?t played a lot over the last
year and become training players.
?Gary is one of those, Stevie May is
another. They?re worth persevering
with. Gary played with a freshness and
enthusiasm.
?He tired but he will feel better about
himself after playing a big part in a
winning performance.
Aberdeen?s next game comes a week
on Wednesday when Celtic visit
Pittodrie.
Mackay-Steven says he has nothing
to prove to his former club but is
looking forward to the clash.
He went on: ?When the fixtures came
out, it was one I was looking for. I can?t
wait for it.
?I?ll go in to the game with
confidence and the whole squad is
looking forward to it.
?These are the games where you want
to test yourself.?
The Dons stood up to a second-half
onslaught by Hibs to leave Edinburgh with
three points and stay joint top of the league.
Pittodrie boss McInnes paid particular
tribute to 20-year-old defender Scott
McKenna.
He said: ?This was the first time he has
been up against a different type of striker.
?He was facing a busy number 10 in Dylan
McGeouch and Anthony Stokes, who plays in
little half positions.
?In the main, he dealt with everything very
well. Along with Kari Arnason and Anthony
O?Connor, they?ve formed a triangle that has
been effective in nullifying the opposition.
?I felt we were giving the other teams too
much encouragement earlier in the season,
even though we were winning.
?McKenna has played a part in stopping
that. It?s only a start for him but we believe he
can get better and better.?
Aberdeen?s winning goal was a reward for
their patience.
The home side were committed to
attacking at pace. John McGinn would burst
through from midfield, while Martin Boyle
and McGeouch ran at defenders in an
attempt to supply Stokes.
The Dons were less explosive in their
forward play.
O?Connor sat in front of the back four and
at times they had eleven men behind the ball.
The formation makes Aberdeen a tough nut
to crack and they remain a threat with
midfield trickery of Ryan Christie and Kenny
McLean.
It was the former St Mirren midfielder who
Gary Mackay-Steven sweeps in the winning goal for Aberdeen
unlocked the Hibs defence with one
outstanding pass.
One subtle sweep of his left foot and Gary
Mackay-Steven was behind the Hibs? defence
and running through on goal.
The winger kept his composure to slide the
ball past Ross Laidlaw and into the corner of
the net. That one bit of magic made all the
difference and Derek McInnes was delighted
with it.
He added: ?The goal we scored was of great
quality and deservedly won us the game.
?The weight of the ball from Kenny, then
the timing of the run and calmness of the
finish by Gary was excellent.
?We had something to hold on to, but we
possibly defended a little deeper than I
wanted later on.?
This Hibees side has the same sense of
determination that characterised their boss,
Neil Lennon, during his playing days.
They gave absolutely everything to try and
get back on level term.
All they were lacking was a real bit of
attacking class and that was the manager?s
only disappointment.

Lennon said: ?I thought we were excellent

?There was one bit of quality in the game
and that?s where the Aberdeen goal came
from.
?We were very good in the second-half,
forced the issue and made them defend
deeper.
?Unfortunately, our final ball was poor.
?For three games now, none of my forward
players have scored and I need more from
them. I?m not big on statistics but we had 16
attempts on goal and three of them were on
target.
?I?m not going to lambast the players but I
want more.?
Danny Swanson danced through the Dons?
rear-guard near the end but found five players
diving to block his shot.
He then got a shot at goal but was denied
by a save by Lewis.
Aberdeen?s second-half display wasn?t
always pretty, but it was highly effective.
It?s style that leaves them equal top with
Celtic and we can expect to see more of it.

STAR MAN: Jamie
Walker showed
great poise and
proved a constant
thorn in the home
side?s flesh. Took the
winner brilliantly.
Craig Levein wants to
have Tynecastle bouncing
by the time road-weary
Hearts roll back into their
revamped home.
The former Scotland
boss saw Jambos? hero
Jamie Walker seal a vital
win in the Highlands as
10-man Jambos stood
firm under a late barrage.
Levein craves
momentum in this season
of extended away trips
before the consecutive
Edinburgh-based
matches now lying in
store through to the
second half of December.
Three capital dates ?
against St Johnstone and
Rangers at Murrayfield,
either side of an Easter
Road visit ? will be prelude
to the homecoming
against Kilmarnock on
November 5th.
Levein said: ?Tynecastle
is the place we pick up
most points.
?I want to try and get us
into a bit of momentum
before we go back there.
?Today was good. I was,
overall, really pleased
with the way we played.
?We?re not on a roll yet,
but for long spells in the
first half I felt we were
doing the things I hope
we will do week-in and
week-out.?
Esmael Goncalves had
fired the visitors ahead in
the first half only to see
the lead quickly wiped
out by teenager Davis
Keillor-Dunn.
However, Walker?s 60th
minute rocket into the
roof of the net proved
enough for victory.
All-in-all, it was a
satisfying day for the
Jambos, fresh from
learning of hefty cash
losses from an on-line
banking sting.
Walker?s endeavours
had begun to give Hearts
the upper hand in the first
period with Goncalves
just failing to connect
properly with his
dangerous cross after 17
minutes.
A minute later, Walker
buzzed into space and
thrashed a 25-yard shot
just over the County bar,
with Cowie flashing a low
attempt wide soon after.

Jambos to build on victory
County threatened with a
corner, with defender
Andrew Davies claiming he
was bundled over by
Christophe Berra as he made
to connect with Michael
Gardyne?s swirling delivery.
Hearts broke and Michael
Smith?s punt found Walker
controlling at pace and,
feeding the ball to Goncalves
six yards out, the striker
lashed low into the net.
The Tynecastle club?s
thoughts of a half-time lead
were premature, as County
retaliated immediately.
From the re-start, the
Dingwall club attacked with
Jason Naismith finding
young Davis Keillor-Dunn in
the box.
The Academy graduate
glided across the six-yard
box to slam past keeper Jon
McLaughlin.
It was ragged stuff into the
second half, with ref Willie
Collum resorting a rash of
cards, some unjustified.
County had a Curran
penalty claim waved away
before Hearts regained the
lead on the hour.
It was a well-worked move
culminating in Kyle Lafferty?s
square pass being swiftly fed
into the path of Jamie Walker
by Randall.
Walker?s finish was an
exquisite lash into the roof
of the net.
Randall?s assist was
followed by a red card after
taking out Jim O?Brien and
earning a second yellow.

Esmael Goncalves celebrates his goal
Neil Lennon is praying
Celtic return from
Munich with a European
hangover as he seeks to
mastermind a way past
his former club in
S a t u r d a y ?s B e t f r e d
League Cup semi-final.
A former captain and
manager of the Hoops,
the Hibs boss was no
stranger to marquee
Champions League
nights, and the challenges
posed by returning to
domestic duty after
exhausting exertions on
the Continent.
And fixtures do not
come much more mouthwatering, and gruelling,
than a trip to the Allianz
Arena to face Bayern.
Lennon is ready to take
any advantage he can
against Brendan Rodgers?
all-conquering Bhoys.
H e s a i d : ?A n y
advantage we can take
from Celtic being in
Munich, we will have to.
?They will maybe only
have a day-and-a-half to
recover.We are going to try
to make the most of that.
?The mental and
physical approach
coming from European
games to domestic
matches is really difficult.
?Sub-consciously with
players, you are on a high
with the Champions
League ? and then you
dip after the game. Then
you?ve got to try to pick
yourself back up again.
?Even from my own
playing experiences, it is
difficult to recover as
quickly as you?d have liked.
?Does that mean you
can catch them earlier in
the game, catch them
cold? Or maybe wear
them down later on? It
can work both ways.
?Maybe the fact that it?s
a semi-final might make
it easier for the Celtic
players to zip themselves
up again.
?The fact is they?ve a
squad that has got real
depth, power and pace.
?So whatever team
Brendan Rodgers plays
o n We d n e s d a y, a n d
whatever team he plays
on Saturday, they will be
very strong, I imagine.
?There will be a
different approach in
both games from him as
well, I?d imagine.?
There will be no sense
of inferiority among the
Hibs players following
their fine display at
Parkhead a fortnight ago,
and Lennon sees no
reason why his players
cannot go one better at
Hampden.
Lennon said: ?I was
delighted with the way
we played at Celtic Park,
delighted with the way
we forced the issues,
delighted with the way
we kept our composure,
and were patient.
?In the second half, we
played really strongly,
which we were delighted
with.
?Of course, the next
obstacle is the biggest
o n e yo u c a n g e t i n
Scottish football.
?But if you?re going to
win it, you have to beat
everyone and that?s how
we?ll approach it.
?We?ll try to play as
well as we did at Celtic
Park, with that same
bravery and mentality.?

Oliver Burke is mobbed after his goal in Latvia
By Mark Walker
sport@sundaypost.com
Scotland?s most-expensive player, Oliver Burke, has
revealed how his ill-fated spell in Germany was
affecting his confidence before he resurrected his
career following his �m move to West Brom.
Burke helped Scotland?s Under-21s to a 2-0 midweek
win in Latvia in their Euro 2019 qualifier, scoring one
of the goals.
He endured a frustrating time at RB Leipzig after his
original �m move from Nottingham Forest and
made just five starts for the Bundesliga runners-up
last term, in which he was subbed in all of them.
The 20-year-old has revealed the moment he knew
for sure his time in Germany was coming to an end.
Burke said: ?When I spoke to the people at the club,
from what they were saying I could tell it just wasn?t
happening for us.
?I wasn?t happy. I felt as if I?d had a very successful
pre-season and that things were going well.
?But I wasn?t given an opportunity after that, and I
couldn?t see my career moving forward at RB Leipzig.
?Germany was a great experience. Being in a new
country, you learn a lot about yourself. I feel that I?ve
become a better player from going there.
?But now I need to play more games to get my
confidence back to where it was before. I need to start
enjoying my football again ? and it starts now.
?The last year has been very frustrating for me, not
having the game time and losing my confidence.
?I?ve been a bit down, really. But I feel I can pick
myself up again in a country that I know and at a great
club like West Brom.
?I feel I can really kick on now, and if I play and score
goals for Scotland Under-21s, that will only help.?
Burke insists he doesn?t see his �m price tag as a
burden, and said: ?I just don?t look at it at. I train hard and
take each day as it comes. I don?t think about how much
I moved for, or that I?m Scotland?s most-expensive player.
?There?s so much money in the game now, players
are going for a lot more. It?s normal.
?But the hard work doesn?t stop now. I?m still very
focused and I want to get the very best out of myself.
?If I can get into the West Brom side and play well, I
then want to get myself back in the full Scotland team.
?I feel I?m capable of it, but I have to prove myself
again. The harder I work, the more successful I?ll be.?
Burke has only just recovered from a hamstring
injury and could have easily pulled out of the trip to
the Baltic outpost.
But he stressed: ?I?m the captain and I wanted to be
there. The staff at West Brom had suggested only
playing in one of the games and to miss the other one.
?But I felt I had it in me to play in both and to make
an impact. The squad has come a long way and we?d
already beaten Holland at home.
?It was two testing games against England and
Latvia, but it was a great result over there.?
Kilmarnock?s new boss Steve Clarke
watched the 90 minutes from the
stands, but he was given the credit for
the club?s first league win of the
season after he delivered an inspiring
team-talk during the pre-match meal.
Paul McDonald and Andy Millen were
put in charge after Lee McCulloch?s
departure and they prepared the players
for this vital game.
Clarke was appointed in the morning,
but allowed the interim duo to make the
decisions during the 90 minutes.
They got it right and won this match
convincingly to move off the bottom of
the Premiership table after their first
league win of the season.
Partick Thistle, on the other hand, now
sit bottom and without a victory in nine
attempts since this campaign kicked off
in August.
Clarke immediately vowed to ?fix? the
club and the 54-year-old Scotsman ?
former West Brom and Reading boss and
assistant manager of Chelsea and
Liverpool ? wants to take the Ayrshire
side clear of the relegation zone and
towards the top six.
He said: ?I?m delighted to be back in
football and as the manager of
Kilmarnock.
?In my discussions with the board, we
spoke about stability and, while we need
to fix the current situation, I?m looking to
provide that stability to this great club.
?I?m looking forward to working with
the board, staff, players and supporters
to ensure future success.?
McDonald has now handed over full
control to Clarke and will revert back to

courtesy of goals in either half from Kris

a thrill to get the three points.
?Credit to the players, I just don?t think
previously the results went for us. Today
we got the bit of luck we needed.
?The club appointed the new manager
before the game and Steve Clarke is a
massive name. It shows how ambitious
our club is to appoint somebody of his
stature. He met the players at the hotel.
The pep talk he gave worked wonders. It
gave the players a massive lift.?
The deadlock was broken five minutes
before the interval and it was a deserved
lead.
A Jordan Jones cross should have been
easily dealt with by Niall Keown. But the
Jags defender?s header was weak and into
the path of Boyd.

STAR MAN: He
didn?t score for
once, but Louis
Moult?s touch and
movement made
him a constant
threat to Hamilton.
Hamilton?s woes continued
with this latest setback at the
SuperSeal Stadium.
As if being the victim of a
major internet fraud scam
wasn?t bad enough, the
struggling Lanarkshire outfit
have now taken only one point
from a possible 18 to leave
hovering just above the drop
zone.
It was like Groundhog Day

who watched through his
fingers as basic errors cost his
team the goals that lost this
game.
Motherwell were the better

To his credit, Canning did
not claim that the fraud case
had any impact on his players?
performance yesterday.
?I don?t think that affected us
at all,? he said.
?We can?t affect that
situation.
?All we can do is get on the
pitch and work away and the
boys put in a lot of effort.
?You hear about teams who
find a way to win, but we seem
to be finding ways to lose,
which is obviously
disappointing.?

by the scruff of the neck and

Adam Frizzell?s 25-yarder sealed the game for Killie
positions and he added another to
his impressive tally when he kept
his composure to side-foot the ball
home from 12 yards.
There was no doubt that Thistle
displayed more desire and energy
after the interval. Paul McGinn had
a powerful shot from 22 yards out
well saved by Jamie MacDonald, his
first save.
But the game was quickly into
the same flow as the first half. Boyd
was denied his second goal in the
62nd minute when his header was
cleared off the line by Milan
Nitriansky.
Just 60 seconds later, when a
powerful 25-yard shot from Frizzell
gave Cerny no chance for as good a
goal as you?ll see all season.
In stoppage time, Kris Doolan
forced MacDonald into a brilliant
save and sub Conor Sammon hit a

and manager Alan Archibald
insisted they were right to do so.
He said: ?We were really poor.
We?re not adrift, as yet.
?The fans, quite rightly got on

It?s understood Archibald retains

unlucky not to be awarded a

bundled him off the ball right
in front of referee Craig
Thomson.
The official infuriated the
aggrieved striker by waving
play on.
Given their early superiority,
it came as a shock when
Motherwell fell behind in
Accies? first venture upfield.
Dougie Imrie?s cross was
missed by Rakish Bingham,
but Ionnas Skondras charged
into the box to drill a shot high
behind Trevor Carson.
The goal boosted the hosts
and Carson did well to keep
out a rasper from Bingham
before Well got back on track.
Skondras sclaffed a through
ball into the path of Andrew
Rose and there was no saving
his full-blooded drive from 15
yards.

Accies again just after the
break when Peter Hartley was
left unmarked to force home a
Chris Cadden free-kick from
six yards.
Both sides had chances after
that.
Argentinian striker Antonio
Raul Rojano came on for
Skondras and set up Steven
Boyd for a crack at goal, only
for the youngster to swing and
miss the ball completely.
At the other end, Ryan
Bowman couldn?t believe he
failed to hit the target with a
free header from two yards
after Elliott Frear picked him
out with a cross.
Motherwell boss Steven
Robinson was pleased with his
side?s display ahead of the
League Cup last-four clash
against Rangers at Hampden a
week today.
?Now we can concentrate
on the semi-final and we have

?We?re looking forward to it,

Andy Rose celebrates equalising
Bayern Munich handed Celtic a
goalscoring warning ahead of
Wednesday?s Champions League game
with a 5-0 win over Freiburg.
The Bundesliga giants had been
struggling recently by their high
standards and that led to the 72-year-old
Jupp Heynckes replacing Carlo Ancelotti,
Heynckes returning for his fourth spell
as manager.
And his return saw Bayern romp to a
one-sided victory over relegation
candidates Freiburg thanks to goals from
Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman,
Thiago, Joshua Kimmich and, of course,
Robert Lewandowski.
However, Bayern suffered an injury
blow after midfielder Javi Martinez
suffered a shoulder injury and he is
almost certainly out of the midweek
game.
Munich skipper Thomas Muller was
thrilled with his side?s display.
He said: ?We wanted to put on a great
performance in front of our fans. There
is no perfect game in football, but today
it was close.
?The change of manager is important,
but as players we also have to improve.
?It was very good, but we keep our feet
on the ground and prepare for the game
against Celtic.?
And Heynckes warned his players he
wants more of the same. He said: ?This is
a positive start for us after a difficult few
weeks.
?We have made a good game over long
periods, but we have also allowed
Freiburg three chances in the first half.
?We must be safer, more compact and
cannot lose the ball when we are all
going forward.
?Javier Martinez had to be taken off
after an injury and that?s a concern. We
don?t know yet how bad it is. He?s a tough
boy and never usually asks to come off.?
Although Bayern dominated the
game, Celtic will be encouraged by the
chances created by Freiburg.
On-loan Liverpool kid Ryan Kent ?
who Brendan Rodgers had at Celtic and
was linked with a summer loan move to
Parkhead ? had two decent chances
when he forced a save off Sven Ulreich
before Mike Frantz headed wide in front
of goal.
But Bayern look like they are finding
form at just the wrong time for the Hoops.

We turn back time and take a trip doWn memory lane
1967 frozen In tIme
It hasn?t been a great week
to be a scotland fan.
So it?s the ideal time to
remember better times.
Jim Orr from Glasgow is
doing his best to give the
Tartan Army something to
smile about with his play
about one of Scotland?s
greatest triumphs.
In Bend It Like Baxter, he
attempts to capture the spirit
of 1967 and the famous 3-2
victory at Wembley.
England had been
unbeaten since winning the
World Cup a year earlier but
couldn?t cope with players
like Billy Bremner, John Greig,
Jim McCalliog, Bobby Lennox
and Jim Baxter.
Baxter summed up the style
of the triumph by taking time
to stop and juggle the ball
during the heat of battle.
The fans were jubilant at
time up and a number
couldn?t resist celebrating on
the pitch.
Jim?s play is a humorous
account of the supporters?
pilgrimage to Wembley and
he?s trying to trace one man
in particular.
Two fans were captured
hugging Jim Baxter at time up
and the identity of the Scot on
the right of the Rangers
midfielder remains unknown.
A reading of the play is being
staged at Webster?s Theatre on
Sunday, November 19.

Preston North End have been
challenging in the top half of the

under Scottish boss Alex Neil.
The Lilywhites are prospering

only one Scot in the playing squad.
It couldn?t have been more
different 50 years ago. Preston had
16 Scottish players on their books.
At the start of October, 1967,
they beat Plymouth Argyle 3-1
with a team that contained just
three Englishmen.
The rest of the side was made up
of seven Scots and one Irishman.
Representing Scotland were
George Ross, Jim Smith, Bert Partick,
Ernie Hannigan, Jim Forrest, Archie
Gemmill and Jim McNab.
McNab, signed from
Sunderland, was very much the
odd one out in the squad.
He was the only player not
recruited on the recommendation
of Preston?s Scottish scout, Jimmie
Scott.
Midfielder Norrie Lloyd signed
in 1966, but admits he wasn?t the
player originally targeted by the
Deepdale club.
He recalled: ?I was playing for
Twechar Youth Club and Jimmie
50 years ago, the
Lilywhites were
very much dark blue
Scott actually came to watch my
brother, John.
?I must have had a good game
that day as I was invited down to
Preston for a two-week trial.
?Bert Patrick went at the same
time, and after three days I was
offered terms to sign.
?I was doing an apprenticeship
as a draughtsman, but it was an
easy decision to move down south
to become a professional
footballer.
?It was a piece of cake settling in
at the club because there were so
many other lads from Scotland.
?We were normally sorted out
with tickets for cup finals and
international games.
?My priority was trying to get
tickets for Scotland games against
England for my mates.
?But I missed the famous win at
Wembley in 1967 because it was
my first chance to go home for the
summer.
?I stayed fit by running up and
down the glens near my home
village.?
Norrie was signed by one
Scottish manager, but enjoyed his
best run under another.
He went on: ?Jimmy Milne, who
had taken Preston to the 1964 FA
Cup Final, left and was replaced by
Bobby Seith.
?He fancied me and I got an
extended run in the team.
?I kept Archie Gemmill out of
the side ? but only when he was
injured!
?Sadly, we were relegated and
Alan Ball senior took over.
?I wasn?t his cup of tea. I don?t
think he liked the Jocks!?
Norrie went on loan to Stockport
County and was then sold to
Southport.
He said: ?I had three great years
a t So u t h p o r t u n d e r Ji m m y
Meadows.
?We won the Fourth Division
and it was a really sociable club.
?Jimmy then signed me when he
took over at Stockport.
?Sometimes you find a manager
that trusts you and is willing to
give you a chance.?
?I then went part-time, played
some non-league football and was
financially better off!?.
Norrie, now 68. became a
publican in Preston before moving
to Spain and running a few bars on
the Costa del Sol.
Rangers warmed up for their
European Cup Battle of Britain
against Leeds United with a
1-0 win over Hibs.
Ally McCoist came off the
bench to score eight minutes
from time.
Their English opponents
beat Sheffield United 3-1 with
goals from Lee Chapman,
Gary Speed and Chris Whyte.
Aberdeen beat bottom
side Falkirk 3-1. Eoin Jess
(above), Scott Booth and
Mixu Paatelainen were on
target.
A Graeme Hogg header
gave an injury-hit Hearts
team a 1-0 success against
Dundee United.

Two late goals from Charlie
Nicholas helped Celtic to

thrashing of Morton. Dave
Narey got a double and Billy

Snelders: Dutch need
a touch of tartan to
solve their problems
By Sean Hamilton
SPORT@SUNDAYPOST.COm
Scotland?s pain is being shared by the
people of Holland right now.
While next summer?s World Cup Finals
will mark 20 years since the Dark Blues
were at a major tournament, the Dutch are
about to sit out a second major tournament
in a row for the first time in 30 years.
The nation that gave the world Johan
Cruyff, Marco van Basten and total football
? the nation we have so often looked to for
solutions to our own problems ? is in crisis.
They finished third in their qualifying
group behind France and Sweden, and are
a long way from the country that reached
the World Cup Final in 1974, 1978 and
2010, and finished third when the
tournament was last played in Brazil just
over three years ago.
But former Aberdeen and Rangers
keeper, Theo Snelders, reckons there is a
way back for the Dutch. And a start would
be taking a leaf out of Scotland?s book!
The two countries have filled the void in
their calendars by agreeing to meet in a
friendly at Pittodrie on November 9.
Fo r m e r Ra n g e r s m a n a g e r D i c k
Advocaat is in charge of the Dutch, and
has just lost the mercurial Arjen Robben
to international retirement
Snelders said: ?Holland need a couple
of nasty players in the team.
?Scotland has always been good at
producing nasty players ? although you
don?t want too many of them!
?Holland had them not so long ago.
Players like Jaap Stam, Mark van Bommel
and Nigel de Jong.
?But now there is nobody, especially in
defence, where you need somebody
aggressive, somebody opposition strikers
are afraid to play against.
?The modern Dutch player is just not
like that. They want the ball to feet, they
want to play pretty football.
?Of course, that is important, but you
need the other side of the game, too ? the
tough side, the aggressive side.
?When there is no variation, your play
becomes predictable, and I think that is
what has happened to the national team
since 2014.
?That team, under Louis van Gaal, did
very well to finish third at the World Cup
in Brazil. But they did it using a bit of an
anti-Dutch system, if you like.
?It wasn?t the prettiest, but it was
effective. Since then, it is a new cycle of
younger players coming through, and
even though there is talent there, it hasn?t
been so effective because they are too soft
in defence.?
The Dutch national team?s slump has
been replicated by their Under-21s and at
club level. Three Eredivisie sides ? Ajax, PSV
and Utrecht ? were knocked out of European
competition in qualifying this summer.
In Ajax?s case, that meant stumbles in
both Champions League and Europa
League preliminary games.
Meanwhile, their elite youths have
missed the last two Under-21 European
Championships in a row, and four of the
last five in total.
Arjen Robben said farewell to international football in midweek
The Dutch kids kicked off their latest
qualifying cycle last month with a
comprehensive 2-0 loss to Scotland?s
young lions in Paisley.
?I watched Holland?s Under-21s against
Scotland and I was very impressed with the
Scots,? 53-year-old Snelders continued.
?They were allowed to control the game
and they did it very well.
?But what I saw from Holland shows the
problems we have.
?They are a team of technical players,
with the athletic attributes they need. But
they were just too nice.
?Towards the end of the game, their
body language was very strange ?
becoming frustrated, acting with anger
towards the referee.
?It is not so good and there is concern,
but it is not panic because there are always
talents coming through.
?It is a rollercoaster ? look back to 1982,
1984, 1986, there was no great talent. But
then in 1988, came Marco van Basten, Ruud
Gullit, Ronald Koeman, Frank Rijkaard, and
thisteamwontheEuropeanChampionships.
?The team now has come to the end of a
cycle and it?s up to the younger ones to
step in and rise to the challenge.

?There are some on the horizon.
?Justin Kluivert, who is Patrick Kluivert?s
son, is only 18 but he is a talent at Ajax,
who also have a 20-year-old midfielder,
Frenkie de Jong, coming to the fore.
?These type of players are coming, so
there is always hope.?
Hanging on to top young talent is
increasingly a problem for Dutch club sides.
As in Scotland, the money simply does
not exist in the Eredivisie to compete with
the increasingly cash-rich giants of the
European game.
Even Ajax, the storied top dogs of the
Dutch game, are beginning to struggle.
?To be fair to Ajax, they are paying the
price for their success last season,? said
Snelders. ?They went to the Europa
League Final, but what happens? They
lose Davinson Sanchez to Spurs, they lose
Davy Klaassen to Everton.
?Young players used to play 200 games
before they left Holland. Now it is sometimes
just 30 or 40, so our teams suffer.
?The one positive is that there are
always new players coming. But if they are
always lost, it becomes hard for our teams
to compete in Europe.?
21
the voice of experience
Fergie had the
same fears as
Strachan in ?86
Managers are never in the right frame of mind to
pass comments immediately after the final whistle.
That is especially the case in the minutes after their
team has crashed out of the World Cup ? again.
Yet that?s exactly what Gordon Strachan did when
Scotland failed to qualify for Russia next summer by
only drawing against Slovenia last Sunday.
A clearer-thinking Strachan would never have said:
?Genetically we are behind. Maybe we should be
getting big women and men together and see what we
can do.?
That quote was used to beat him in the countdown
to his career as Scotland boss ending four days later.
Although it?s written in Sky Sport?s contract with the
SFA that managers must be available for interview
immediately after the final whistle, it?s totally unfair to
thrust a mike under the nose of an emotional boss so
soon after a game.
Strachan explained what he perceives as a major
problem for Scotland far better a year ago.
He said: ?You need a balance between height,
strength and ability. If you?ve got the whole package
that?s a real bonus.
?Unfortunately we don?t have too many with the
whole package.?
That comment came in the cold light of dawn after
being given time to reflect properly after a defeat.
Strachan isn?t the first ? and he certainly won?t be the last
? to regret being forced into uttering the first thing that
comes into his head immediately after the final whistle.
In 1986, I remember sitting up half the night with
Alex Ferguson after an unfancied Gothenburg team
had knocked Aberdeen out of the European Cup
quarter-final on the away goals rule.
Fergie?s thoughts were similar to Strachan?s, in that
Gothenburg had more-balanced athletes, who were
also blessed with skill and pace.
Although they didn?t have a single player under
6ft tall, they were no lumbering giants.
In those days, television demands on managers
were not nearly as pressing as they are today.
So by time the Dons boss and myself set about
emptying the fridge in his hotel room, he?d had time to
choose his words carefully.
Fergie, who would be in charge of Scotland at the
World Cup Finals in Mexico a few months later,
focused on diet.
?People in Scotland make sure they put four-star
petrol in their cars ? but they don?t bother what they
put in their stomachs,? he said.
? We?ve become a nation of junk-food eaters.
?The Swedes had so much more strength and
athleticism than us.
?So our footballers must develop better strength in
their upper body.?
When that story appeared in print four days later, it
wasn?t seen as an excuse that didn?t add up.
Sadly, over 31 years later, Gordon Strachan?s was.

saM MacallarDYCE
Some Tartan Army members are
affronted at the thought of Sam
Allardyce (below), a former
England manager, being in the
frame for the Scotland job.
But they should bear in mind
that he is Scottish.
Although born in the West
Midlands, his father hailed from
Nairn, and his mother was born
in Dumfries.
Marko was ahEaD of his tiME
Queen of the South are one
step ahead of their Irn-Bru Cup
quarter-final opponents, The
New Saints.
The pair don?t face each
other until November 12, but
the Doonhamers have already
spied on the Welsh side.
Their scout Marko Forsyth
was despatched down to
Shropshire last month when
Livingston played TNS ? to spy
on the Scots!
Manager Gary Naysmith
said: ?The game was live on TV
but we were playing Livi the
following week.
?So Marko made the 500mile round trip to pick up
anything the cameras missed.?
toN takE a striP off thEir faNs
Morton fans have been given
the chance to design the
home kit their favourites will
wear next season.
Last May, the Greenock club
gave their supporters the
chance to choose from four preselected designs, and they took
things further last December
when they asked supporters to
design an away strip.
sEvENth hEavEN for holt
Former Hibs striker Grant Holt,
who left the Easter Road club
at the end of last season
having scored seven goals in
37 appearances, has joined
Evo-Stik League South side,
King?s Lynn Town, who play in
the seventh level of English
football.
Holt has linked up with his
former Norwich City teammate, Ian Culverhouse, who is
charge of the Linnets.

don?t miss the people?s pundit every week
SFA will have to pay the
going rate for a top boss
The SFA are often accused of penny pinching.
They can?t allow that to be proved right when
it comes to appointing the next Scotland
manager.
I have to admit I?m disappointed that Gordon
Strachan has gone. But now it?s vital to get the
right man as his replacement.
And the blazers on the sixth floor at Hampden
will have to pay the going rate for a top manager.
I was told that Gareth Southgate got more for
being in charge of the England Under-21s than
the Scotland boss.
That being so, if we?re going to get someone
really big to give the nation a lift, it will require
spending serious money.
If that means the SFA have to call in an
outside benefactor, like the Republic of Ireland
have done, so be it
The names being mentioned at the moment
are all good guys with experience, but if you
want people to get really excited then you have
to splash the cash.
I?ll tell you one thing, Big Sam
wouldn?t do the Scotland job
for �0,000
We?re a passionate football nation and have a
tremendous support. And despite failing to get
to the World Cup once again, I really don?t think
Scotland are that bad a side.
We always seem to just shoot ourselves in the
foot on a couple of occasions and that can
make the difference between qualifying for
major tournaments and staying at home.
Scotland aren?t actually that far behind
England ? we proved that in the 2-2 draw at
Hampden.
They?re not going to go to Russia and win the
World Cup. But they?ve qualified again and we
haven?t.
I wonder if someone like Sam Allardyce
would do the job? I can tell you one thing. He
wouldn?t do it for �0,000.
Sam is the sort of guy with a track record of
getting success with teams where they
resources aren?t up there at the very elite level.
I know some people will be opposed to a
former England manager getting the job, but
that has to be put to one side.
The chance of a successful future for
Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland bosses Martin O?Neill and Michael O?Neill
Scotland is too important to let petty, antiEnglish sentiments get in the way.
There?s a need for someone who knows how
to get the most out of players and has a touch of
pragmatism about them.
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
have shown that works with Michael O?Neill
and Martin O?Neill.
I watched the Wales?Republic match last
week, and couldn?t help thinking that Scotland
are every bit as good as both of them.
Unfortunately, Gordon Strachan?s team
made a poor start to the campaign, and they?ve
paid dearly for it.
We know there?s a problem with a lack of
central defenders, but surely we can find a way
around that.
If your centre-halves aren?t great, you put
someone in front of them to provide protection.
Mourhino has done that at Manchester
United by signing Nemanja Matic to play in
front of the defence.
Look at the way someone like Neil Warnock
operates in the Championship.
He?s all about organisation. He makes sure
players know their job.
It?s a formula that has helped him get a
number of promotions.
I?m not saying Scotland weren?t organised,
but maybe we can do a bit better.
Gordon Strachan blaming genetics wasn?t a
clever move. The Irish teams certainly don?t
have a genetic advantage.
The Republic of Ireland defenders headed
heads against Wales and showed that it?s steel
you need to get through vital games.
Scotland players shouldn?t be lacking in
desire or concentration.
Let?s hope the next manager finds the
formula that works for the O?Neills.
Messi made a mockery of his international detractors
Lionel Messi
One positive thing about
next year?s World Cup Finals
is that Lionel Messi will be
there.
Messi has often been
accused of playing like a
superstar for Barcelona, but
not showing the same
commitment for Argentina.
After his display on
Wednesday, I think we can
now dismiss any suggestion
that he doesn?t care about
his country.
He was clearly petrified
they would miss out on the
World Cup and scored a
fabulous hat-trick to help
Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1.
He?s the best player I?ve
ever seen, and I?m delighted
we?ll get another chance to
watch him at a major Finals.
It will probably be that
last time we see Messi and
Ronaldo at the peak of their
powers on the international
stage.
The World Cup really
needs a team like Argentina
to be there.
They might have only
scraped through the
qualification process, but I
believe they?ll put up a real
challenge next year.
You should never
underestimate how much it
means to players to take
part in a World Cup.
I kicked off Scotland?s
1982 World Cup Finals
campaign with Kenny
Dalglish on my 23rd
birthday. It was a dream.
I just wish I could have
done it a second time, but
injury stopped that.
Ionnas Skondras charged
into the box to drill a shot high
behind Trevor Carson.
The goal boosted the hosts
and Carson did well to keep
out a rasper from Bingham
before Well got back on track.
Skondras sclaffed a through
ball into the path of Andrew
Rose and there was no saving
his full-blooded drive from 15
yards.
Dodgy defending cost
Accies again just after the
break when Peter Hartley was
left unmarked to force home a
Chris Cadden free-kick from
six yards.
Both sides had chances after
that.
Argentinian striker Antonio
Raul Rojano came on for
Skondras and set up Steven
Boyd for a crack at goal, only
for the youngster to swing and
miss the ball completely.
At the other end, Ryan
Bowman couldn?t believe he
failed to hit the target with a
free header from two yards
after Elliott Frear picked him
out with a cross.
Motherwell boss Steven
Robinson was pleased with his
side?s display ahead of the
League Cup last-four clash
against Rangers at Hampden a
week today.
?Now we can concentrate
on the semi-final and we have
a big chance of getting to the
final,? said the former Oldham
gaffer.
?I watched the Rangers
game (which they won 3-0
against St Johnstone) on
Friday night and we are going
into the game with confidence,
as they will be, too.
?We?re looking forward to it,
but all the expectation is on
them.?
Fraudsters posed as
fraud-busters: Page 6
Andy Rose celebrates equalising
Bayern Munich handed Celtic a
goalscoring warning ahead of
Wednesday?s Champions League game
with a 5-0 win over Freiburg.
The Bundesliga giants had been
struggling recently by their high
standards and that led to the 72-year-old
Jupp Heynckes replacing Carlo Ancelotti,
Heynckes returning for his fourth spell
as manager.
And his return saw Bayern romp to a
one-sided victory over relegation
candidates Freiburg thanks to goals from
Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman,
Thiago, Joshua Kimmich and, of course,
Robert Lewandowski.
However, Bayern suffered an injury
blow after midfielder Javi Martinez
suffered a shoulder injury and he is
almost certainly out of the midweek
game.
Munich skipper Thomas Muller was
thrilled with his side?s display.
He said: ?We wanted to put on a great
performance in front of our fans. There
is no perfect game in football, but today
it was close.
?The change of manager is important,
but as players we also have to improve.
?It was very good, but we keep our feet
on the ground and prepare for the game
against Celtic.?
And Heynckes warned his players he
wants more of the same. He said: ?This is
a positive start for us after a difficult few
weeks.
?We have made a good game over long
periods, but we have also allowed
Freiburg three chances in the first half.
?We must be safer, more compact and
cannot lose the ball when we are all
going forward.
?Javier Martinez had to be taken off
after an injury and that?s a concern. We
don?t know yet how bad it is. He?s a tough
boy and never usually asks to come off.?
Although Bayern dominated the
game, Celtic will be encouraged by the
chances created by Freiburg.
On-loan Liverpool kid Ryan Kent ?
who Brendan Rodgers had at Celtic and
was linked with a summer loan move to
Parkhead ? had two decent chances
when he forced a save off Sven Ulreich
before Mike Frantz headed wide in front
of goal.
But Bayern look like they are finding
form at just the wrong time for the Hoops.

We turn back time and take a trip doWn memory lane
1967 frozen In tIme
It hasn?t been a great week
to be a scotland fan.
So it?s the ideal time to
remember better times.
Jim Orr from Glasgow is
doing his best to give the
Tartan Army something to
smile about with his play
about one of Scotland?s
greatest triumphs.
In Bend It Like Baxter, he
attempts to capture the spirit
of 1967 and the famous 3-2
victory at Wembley.
England had been
unbeaten since winning the
World Cup a year earlier but
couldn?t cope with players
like Billy Bremner, John Greig,
Jim McCalliog, Bobby Lennox
and Jim Baxter.
Baxter summed up the style
of the triumph by taking time
to stop and juggle the ball
during the heat of battle.
The fans were jubilant at
time up and a number
couldn?t resist celebrating on
the pitch.
Jim?s play is a humorous
account of the supporters?
pilgrimage to Wembley and
he?s trying to trace one man
in particular.
Two fans were captured
hugging Jim Baxter at time up
and the identity of the Scot on
the right of the Rangers
midfielder remains unknown.
A reading of the play is being
staged at Webster?s Theatre on
Sunday, November 19.

Preston North End have been
challenging in the top half of the
Championship this season
under Scottish boss Alex Neil.
The Lilywhites are prospering
with a management team from
north of the border ? but there?s
only one Scot in the playing squad.
It couldn?t have been more
different 50 years ago. Preston had
16 Scottish players on their books.
At the start of October, 1967,
they beat Plymouth Argyle 3-1
with a team that contained just
three Englishmen.
The rest of the side was made up
of seven Scots and one Irishman.
Representing Scotland were
George Ross, Jim Smith, Bert Partick,
Ernie Hannigan, Jim Forrest, Archie
Gemmill and Jim McNab.
McNab, signed from
Sunderland, was very much the
odd one out in the squad.
He was the only player not
recruited on the recommendation
of Preston?s Scottish scout, Jimmie
Scott.
Midfielder Norrie Lloyd signed
in 1966, but admits he wasn?t the
player originally targeted by the
Deepdale club.
He recalled: ?I was playing for
Twechar Youth Club and Jimmie
50 years ago, the
Lilywhites were
very much dark blue
Scott actually came to watch my
brother, John.
?I must have had a good game
that day as I was invited down to
Preston for a two-week trial.
?Bert Patrick went at the same
time, and after three days I was
offered terms to sign.
?I was doing an apprenticeship
as a draughtsman, but it was an
easy decision to move down south
to become a professional
footballer.
?It was a piece of cake settling in
at the club because there were so
many other lads from Scotland.
?We were normally sorted out
with tickets for cup finals and
international games.
?My priority was trying to get
tickets for Scotland games against
England for my mates.
?But I missed the famous win at
Wembley in 1967 because it was
my first chance to go home for the
summer.
?I stayed fit by running up and
down the glens near my home
village.?
Norrie was signed by one
Scottish manager, but enjoyed his
best run under another.
He went on: ?Jimmy Milne, who
had taken Preston to the 1964 FA
Cup Final, left and was replaced by
Bobby Seith.
?He fancied me and I got an
extended run in the team.
?I kept Archie Gemmill out of
the side ? but only when he was
injured!
?Sadly, we were relegated and
Alan Ball senior took over.
?I wasn?t his cup of tea. I don?t
think he liked the Jocks!?
Norrie went on loan to Stockport
County and was then sold to
Southport.
He said: ?I had three great years
a t So u t h p o r t u n d e r Ji m m y
Meadows.
?We won the Fourth Division
and it was a really sociable club.
?Jimmy then signed me when he
took over at Stockport.
?Sometimes you find a manager
that trusts you and is willing to
give you a chance.?
?I then went part-time, played
some non-league football and was
financially better off!?.
Norrie, now 68. became a
publican in Preston before moving
to Spain and running a few bars on
the Costa del Sol.
Rangers warmed up for their
European Cup Battle of Britain
against Leeds United with a
1-0 win over Hibs.
Ally McCoist came off the
bench to score eight minutes
from time.
Their English opponents
beat Sheffield United 3-1 with
goals from Lee Chapman,
Gary Speed and Chris Whyte.
Aberdeen beat bottom
side Falkirk 3-1. Eoin Jess

Mixu Paatelainen were on

Snelders: Dutch need
a touch of tartan to
solve their problems
By Sean Hamilton
SPORT@SUNDAYPOST.COm
Scotland?s pain is being shared by the
people of Holland right now.
While next summer?s World Cup Finals
will mark 20 years since the Dark Blues
were at a major tournament, the Dutch are
about to sit out a second major tournament
in a row for the first time in 30 years.
The nation that gave the world Johan
Cruyff, Marco van Basten and total football
? the nation we have so often looked to for
solutions to our own problems ? is in crisis.
They finished third in their qualifying
group behind France and Sweden, and are
a long way from the country that reached
the World Cup Final in 1974, 1978 and
2010, and finished third when the
tournament was last played in Brazil just
over three years ago.
But former Aberdeen and Rangers
keeper, Theo Snelders, reckons there is a
way back for the Dutch. And a start would
be taking a leaf out of Scotland?s book!
The two countries have filled the void in
their calendars by agreeing to meet in a
friendly at Pittodrie on November 9.
Fo r m e r Ra n g e r s m a n a g e r D i c k
Advocaat is in charge of the Dutch, and
has just lost the mercurial Arjen Robben
to international retirement
Snelders said: ?Holland need a couple
of nasty players in the team.
?Scotland has always been good at
producing nasty players ? although you
don?t want too many of them!
?Holland had them not so long ago.
Players like Jaap Stam, Mark van Bommel
and Nigel de Jong.
?But now there is nobody, especially in
defence, where you need somebody
aggressive, somebody opposition strikers
are afraid to play against.
?The modern Dutch player is just not
like that. They want the ball to feet, they
want to play pretty football.
?Of course, that is important, but you
need the other side of the game, too ? the
tough side, the aggressive side.
?When there is no variation, your play
becomes predictable, and I think that is
what has happened to the national team
since 2014.
?That team, under Louis van Gaal, did
very well to finish third at the World Cup
in Brazil. But they did it using a bit of an
anti-Dutch system, if you like.
?It wasn?t the prettiest, but it was
effective. Since then, it is a new cycle of
younger players coming through, and
even though there is talent there, it hasn?t
been so effective because they are too soft
in defence.?
The Dutch national team?s slump has
been replicated by their Under-21s and at
club level. Three Eredivisie sides ? Ajax, PSV
and Utrecht ? were knocked out of European
competition in qualifying this summer.
In Ajax?s case, that meant stumbles in
both Champions League and Europa
League preliminary games.
Meanwhile, their elite youths have
missed the last two Under-21 European
Championships in a row, and four of the
last five in total.
Arjen Robben said farewell to international football in midweek
The Dutch kids kicked off their latest
qualifying cycle last month with a
comprehensive 2-0 loss to Scotland?s
young lions in Paisley.
?I watched Holland?s Under-21s against
Scotland and I was very impressed with the
Scots,? 53-year-old Snelders continued.
?They were allowed to control the game
and they did it very well.
?But what I saw from Holland shows the
problems we have.
?They are a team of technical players,
with the athletic attributes they need. But
they were just too nice.
?Towards the end of the game, their
body language was very strange ?
becoming frustrated, acting with anger
towards the referee.
?It is not so good and there is concern,
but it is not panic because there are always
talents coming through.
?It is a rollercoaster ? look back to 1982,
1984, 1986, there was no great talent. But
then in 1988, came Marco van Basten, Ruud
Gullit, Ronald Koeman, Frank Rijkaard, and
thisteamwontheEuropeanChampionships.
?The team now has come to the end of a
cycle and it?s up to the younger ones to
step in and rise to the challenge.
SCott
ron
EXCLUSIVE
?There are some on the horizon.
?Justin Kluivert, who is Patrick Kluivert?s
son, is only 18 but he is a talent at Ajax,
who also have a 20-year-old midfielder,
Frenkie de Jong, coming to the fore.
?These type of players are coming, so
there is always hope.?
Hanging on to top young talent is
increasingly a problem for Dutch club sides.
As in Scotland, the money simply does
not exist in the Eredivisie to compete with
the increasingly cash-rich giants of the
European game.
Even Ajax, the storied top dogs of the
Dutch game, are beginning to struggle.
?To be fair to Ajax, they are paying the
price for their success last season,? said
Snelders. ?They went to the Europa
League Final, but what happens? They
lose Davinson Sanchez to Spurs, they lose
Davy Klaassen to Everton.
?Young players used to play 200 games
before they left Holland. Now it is sometimes
just 30 or 40, so our teams suffer.
?The one positive is that there are
always new players coming. But if they are
always lost, it becomes hard for our teams
to compete in Europe.?
21
the voice of experience
Fergie had the
same fears as
Strachan in ?86
Managers are never in the right frame of mind to
pass comments immediately after the final whistle.
That is especially the case in the minutes after their
team has crashed out of the World Cup ? again.
Yet that?s exactly what Gordon Strachan did when
Scotland failed to qualify for Russia next summer by
only drawing against Slovenia last Sunday.
A clearer-thinking Strachan would never have said:
?Genetically we are behind. Maybe we should be
getting big women and men together and see what we
can do.?
That quote was used to beat him in the countdown
to his career as Scotland boss ending four days later.
Although it?s written in Sky Sport?s contract with the
SFA that managers must be available for interview
immediately after the final whistle, it?s totally unfair to
thrust a mike under the nose of an emotional boss so
soon after a game.
Strachan explained what he perceives as a major
problem for Scotland far better a year ago.
He said: ?You need a balance between height,
strength and ability. If you?ve got the whole package
that?s a real bonus.
?Unfortunately we don?t have too many with the
whole package.?
That comment came in the cold light of dawn after
being given time to reflect properly after a defeat.
Strachan isn?t the first ? and he certainly won?t be the last
? to regret being forced into uttering the first thing that
comes into his head immediately after the final whistle.
In 1986, I remember sitting up half the night with
Alex Ferguson after an unfancied Gothenburg team
had knocked Aberdeen out of the European Cup
quarter-final on the away goals rule.
Fergie?s thoughts were similar to Strachan?s, in that
Gothenburg had more-balanced athletes, who were
also blessed with skill and pace.
Although they didn?t have a single player under
6ft tall, they were no lumbering giants.
In those days, television demands on managers
were not nearly as pressing as they are today.
So by time the Dons boss and myself set about
emptying the fridge in his hotel room, he?d had time to
choose his words carefully.
Fergie, who would be in charge of Scotland at the
World Cup Finals in Mexico a few months later,
focused on diet.
?People in Scotland make sure they put four-star
petrol in their cars ? but they don?t bother what they
put in their stomachs,? he said.
? We?ve become a nation of junk-food eaters.
?The Swedes had so much more strength and
athleticism than us.
?So our footballers must develop better strength in
their upper body.?
When that story appeared in print four days later, it
wasn?t seen as an excuse that didn?t add up.
Sadly, over 31 years later, Gordon Strachan?s was.
