by British troops in Iraq in a
fresh attempt to make
millions out of the taxpayer.

like to see the detail in the allegations
and to know who’s making them.
“This kind of undermining — essentially for commercial gain — is really
debilitating for our Armed Forces.”
The new claims come after Leigh
Day won a test case over the treatment of four Iraqis who claimed they
had been wrongly detained.
Mr Justice Leggatt ruled they were
entitled to Human Rights Act compensation, with one getting £30,000.
Lawyers said after the ruling it could
open to door to as many as 600
“unresolved” cases.
Within weeks Leigh Day contacted
scores of clients asking for paperwork
that could strengthen claims.
In February Iraqi whistle-blower
Basim Al-Sadoon claimed he had
arranged hundreds of fake abuse
claims against British troops as part
of a racket to get MoD payouts.
A source yesterday said the latest
claims are the “final salvo” in a legal
war that has run for years, after a
deadline for new cases was set at a
summit between Leigh Day, the MoD
and the High Court.
The source added: “We are in the
final throes of this nightmare.
“It’s still a sizeable caseload that
could come with a hefty price tag.
But when these are done, it’s over.”
The MoD said: “While valid claims
should be compensated, false or
exaggerated
allegations
make
it
harder for justice to be served.”
CUSTOMS UNION WRANGLE
Sir Keir . . . on show
Starmer
stuck for
answers
By MATT DATHAN
LABOUR’S Brexit chief
failed to give a single
example of how it will
benefit Britain yesterday
— and refused to rule out
a second referendum.
Appearing
on
The
Andrew Marr Show, Sir
Keir Starmer was asked
to finish the sentence
“Brexit will be good for
Britain because . . . ”
But the Shadow Brexit
Secretary said it was
“very difficult for me to
complete that sentence”
as he voted to Remain.
This is despite the fact
he is in charge of his
party’s policy on Brexit —
which is for the UK to
leave the single market,
and against a second vote.
Sir Keir refused to
explicitly rule out a second referendum following
pro-Labour student union
bodies demanding one.
He
branded
Cabinet
divisions over a customs
arrangement farcical, saying neither of their proposals was “acceptable”.

partnership yesterday.
The Environment Secretary
also piled pressure on the PM
by urging her to “crack on”
with Brexit.
He trashed calls to extend the
transition period for the UK’s exit
beyond December 2020.
Quizzed on BBC One’s Andrew
Marr Show yesterday, Mr Gove said
there
were

partnership would work.
He favours the use of technology
to monitor goods and borders —
dubbed “Max Fac” — but agreed

Johnson’s
condemnation

By MATT DATHAN, Political Correspondent
May’s favoured option as “crazy”. On
the prospect of a longer transition
period, Mr Gove said: “I don’t
believe in an extension. One of the
things we need to do is crack on.
“We’ve got 21 months. We do need
to meet that deadline. We need to
make sure we deliver things at pace.”
The PM’s 11-strong Brexit “War
Cabinet” will meet tomorrow to discuss the new customs relationship.
Mrs May’s former Deputy Prime
Minister Damian Green told BBC
Radio 4’s Westminster Hour last
night that he expects the Cabinet to
opt for the Brexiteers’ favoured
“Max Fac” model.
But Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt
said he still backed the PM’s
preferred option. He told LBC
Radio: “It’s going to be bumpy . . .
but we have to trust Theresa May.”

MILI IN COMEBACK
DAVID Miliband will return to
British politics today to join a
cross-party bid to force through
a “soft” Brexit.
The former Foreign Secretary
will share a platform with
ex-Tory Cabinet minister Nicky
Morgan and former deputy PM
Nick Clegg to campaign against
a “hard” Brexit at the Tilda Rice
factory in Rainham, Essex.
The stunt will reignite speculation that a new centre party
could form in protest against
Jeremy Corbyn’s far-left agenda
and Theresa May’s Brexit plans.

Tent find
‘murder’
A MAN was arrested on
suspicion of murder yesterday after the body of a
21-year-old woman was
found at a campsite.
The woman was discovered at 7am in a
family-size tent pitched
at the seaside Buckle
Holiday Park near Seaford, East Sussex.
The man, 28, from Littlehampton, West Sussex,
was held after cops were
called to the site.
No one else was being
sought in connection with
the death, Sussex Police
said. They are asking for
anybody at a 50th birthday party held at the
campsite over the weekend to come forward.

Women’s and gender

The ISA has given Prof
Lebow until Tuesday to
apologise but he refuses.
He said of #MeToo: “It

THE
SAYS
Lords’ menace
TODAY the House of Lords will attempt to
muzzle Britain’s free Press.
MPs struck out Ed Miliband’s
“Leveson 2” public inquiry proposal last
week. It took only days for peers to
resurrect it.
Another inquiry would be an obscene
waste of time and money and serves no
purpose. The public do not want it. Even
The Guardian opposes it.
It’s not hard to see why some peers
might have a vested interest in silencing
the media.
Some have been exposed by the Press
for wrongdoing — whether it was
fiddling their expenses or having
extra-marital affairs.
And many of the Labour peers rooting
for it believe their party has been
unfairly covered in the media. They
want newspapers they can tame into
giving them an easy ride. Well, that is
not the role of the Press in a democracy.
The Leveson inquiry and subsequent
police probes cost taxpayers more than
£48million after dozens of failed trials
against journalists.
Leveson’s 2012 report ran to 1,987
pages and contained over a million
words. What do these peers seriously
think is left to learn?
They are foolish, too, to think the
media landscape looks as it once did.
Today, Facebook and Google dominate.
Most newspapers belong to IPSO, a
self-funded, independent regulator that
holds the Press to account more than
any regulator before.
Then again, this is not really about
probing the relationship between cops
and the Press, or phone-hacking. That
is a Trojan horse.
These politicians, with their celebrity
pals at Hacked Off, really just want to
see newspapers neutered. This must not
be allowed to happen.
Traditionally, the House of Lords
respects the Government’s manifesto
commitments. The Tory manifesto said
they would not pursue the second part
of Leveson. That peers have so recklessly binned a constitutional convention is disgraceful.
Britain has slumped in the global
ranking for free speech. In the past four
years, we have fallen from 30th to 40th.
“Leveson 2” would mean we shamefully
fall even further.
Our free Press may not be perfect, but
it noisily holds power to account. Our
country is all the better for it.
No one who values liberty would have it
any other way.
RIP Tessa
BRITISH politics has lost one of its
good guys.
The outpouring of tributes for Tessa
Jowell highlights how widely she was
admired as a politician and, more
importantly, as a person. Legacies don’t
come much better.
Our hearts go out to her husband
David and their children Jessie and
Matthew.
Rest in peace, Tessa.

Lefties:You’ve right
to remain silent...
UNDER America’s splendid
constitution, people can
write or say anything they
like unless it puts public
safety at risk . . . such as
shouting “FIRE” in a

He refuses to apologise and

At

Sadly, America is near the
point when it is an offence
to say or write anything that
someone deems offensive.
Here in Britain, it already is.
You do not need to be black
to level claims of racism.
Anyone who feels affronted
can call the police, even if
they were nowhere near an
incident at the time.
We are not quite there yet
with sexism, Islam-ism or
fat-shaming, but it’s coming.
“You can’t say that,” is
not just an opinion. It is
enforceable.
If foam-flecked ex-Labour
leader Ed Miliband gets his
way, we won’t be able to write
it, either. We won’t be able to
expose silly hypocrisy like this,
let alone the misdeeds and
corruption of those who abuse
their power over us.
We could soon be kissing
goodbye to 300 years of Press
freedom, the cornerstone of
democracy.

Monstrous extension
They demand “safe spaces” to
protect their sensitive souls or,
better, a total ban on speakers
they dislike.
The attack on Press freedom
by Labour — and, to their
eternal shame, some Tories — is
simply a monstrous extension
of this intolerance.
How can we have come
within nine votes of state
censorship? Soon we may be
breaking a law if we fail to
say “please” or “thanks” to
someone who labels themselves
a “victim” or a “survivor”.
Survivors used to be people
who escaped mortal danger.
Today, they include anyone
subjected
to
heavy-handed
flirtation or mild embarrassment. This is one-way traffic.
Self-proclaimed victims or
survivors can say anything they
like. They are exempt from
criticism.
Only whites can be racist.
Only men can be sexist. All
white men are “privileged”
— another invented offence —
simply because they are white
and male.
This group is decreed by the
Left to embrace all Tories who,

sharply into focus yesterday with the death of brave

Tessa’s political achievements were significant, not least
London’s 2012 Olympics triumph.
But what set her apart was her role as goodnatured peacemaker and cross-party conciliator.
In the Blair-Brown years she was a smiling
bridge builder for the embattled Blair government,
not just with the press but with members of other
parties who now mourn her death.
This talent is now vanishingly rare.
Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour could learn a lot from her example
of old-fashioned give and take across the political divide.

Twice as wealthy as Chelsea owner
Roman Abramovich and inventor
James Dyson, he is the 29th richest
person on the planet.
But few will have heard of Jim
Ratcliffe, the 65-year-old grandad
who has become the first Britishborn businessman to top the Sunday
Times Rich List.
Brought up on a council estate
near Manchester, he was sacked from
his first job after just three days.
He belatedly went into business
for himself aged 40 and founded
his giant petrochemical firm Ineos
just 20 years ago.
Ineos is not a household name but
you are sure to have bought products
that use its chemicals — the plastic
cap on your toothpaste, perhaps, the

more than half of it.
Not bad for the son of a joiner and
an office worker, who grew up in a
a council house in Failsworth, Gtr
Manchester, before going to grammar
school when the family moved to
Beverley, East Yorks. His A-level
results were not great but he did
run the school’s industrial society,
arranging tours of local factories.
‘It’s simple – do bad
deals, you get fired’
Jim says: “I did have this inkling
that I wanted to be successful — that
I wanted to be a millionaire one day.
But I was just dreaming, really.”
He was sacked from his first job
after just three days, when his bosses
at BP got round to reading his
medical report and discovered he
suffered from mild eczema.
He says: “I was told, ‘You can’t
work here with eczema. We can’t
spend the money on training you for
five years then find you’ve got an
allergy, so you’re on your bike’.”
He landed a job at another petrol
firm, Esso, which sent him to the
London Business School. Armed with
the skills he honed there, he started
doing deals to turn around failing
companies for a private equity firm.
Ratcliffe says: “The venture capital
world is very simple. If you do bad
deals, you get fired. If you don’t do
any deals, you get fired. But it’s a
good learning curve.”
In 1998, he mortgaged his house
and bought an Antwerp-based chemical company, which he and two pals
turned into Ineos. They borrowed
money to buy up unsexy businesses
and make them profitable — until the
credit crunch hit in 2008.
When
the

government
refused to give Ineos a tax break,
Ratcliffe moved the firm to Switzerland. In 2016, he returned to London
and now operates from offices
opposites Harrods in Knightsbridge.
He owns four Land Rover Defenders and was heartbroken when
production of them stopped. Now he
is investing £600million creating a
no-frills 4x4 that can pull a plough.
He named it Projekt Grenadier,
after the pub where he dreamed up
the scheme. If it comes off, it could
create 10,000 jobs.
He is firmly pro-fracking, investing
millions in the controversial sector,
and believes getting cheap shale gas
from the ground would create a jobs
boom in the North.
Ratcliffe says: “Cheap energy could

TRIBUTES TO TRAGIC MP
Fighting
for better
treatment for
others inspired
us all
—JEREMY CORBYN
By KATE JACKSON
DAME Tessa Jowell
was hailed as an
“inspiration” and a
“lionheart” yesterday
after losing her brave
battle with cancer.
Tributes poured in for
the former Cabinet minister, who died aged 70
on Saturday night.
The Labour politician, who
had brain cancer, had suffered a haemorrhage on Friday and slipped into a coma.
Dame Tessa, who played a
major role in securing the
London 2012 Olympics and
Paralympics, was a passionate and popular politician.
Ex-PM Tony Blair called
her “the most wise of counsellors, the most loyal and
supportive of colleagues, and
the best of friends”.
Labour
leader
Jeremy
Corbyn said: “From councillor to Cabinet minister, her
achievements were huge.”
Dame Tessa had shown
amazing cheerfulness and
steely determination in the
face of adversity.
When she announced she
had cancer last September,
she vowed to help other
people with the disease “live
longer, better lives”.
She campaigned for more
NHS cancer treatments.
‘She was humbling
and inspirational’
In January, she made an
impassioned speech in the
House of Lords for better
access for cancer patients to
experimental treatments.
Referring to Irish poet
Seamus Heaney’s last words,
she said: “I’m not afraid.”
The peers were so moved,
they abandoned parliamentary protocol and gave her a
minute-long standing ovation.
Prime Minister Theresa
May yesterday tweeted: “The
dignity and courage with
which Dame Tessa Jowell
confronted her illness was
humbling and inspirational.”
As Culture, Media and
Sport secretary, Dame Tessa
convinced Tony Blair and
the Cabinet to back the bid
to host the 2012 Olympics.
Athletics supremo Seb Coe
said
yesterday:
“Without
Tessa there would have been
no London 2012, and without
Tessa they would not have
been the success they were.”
Privately educated Tessa
started out in social work
and was a councillor in
Camden, North London.
She was elected MP for
Dulwich and West Norwood,
South London, in 1992 after
two previous poll battles in
Ilford North, East London,
ended in defeat.
When Labour won the 1997
General Election she was
swept to the front benches
as one of “Blair’s babes”.
She created Sure Start, an

She died at home in Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire,

Ex Cabinet

WHEN I heard the sad
news, I looked up the last
text message I’d received
from Tessa. It was typical
of the woman — wry,
funny and courageous.
It ended with Tessa
expressing her determination “to beat through
this tumour” and suggesting we meet up for a coffee. That meeting never
took place but how I wish
it had.
Tessa was the most
selfless person I’ve met in
my political life.
While I’ll remember her
work on Sure Start and in
convincing a sceptical
Cabinet
that
Britain
should bid to host the
Olympics, most of all I’ll
remember the Tessa Jowell who spent so much
time helping the families
of those killed or injured
in the terrorist attack on
London in July 2005.
Tessa Jowell was a great
politician but most of all
she was a warm and wonderful human being.

Little prick
could cure a
floppy willy
STEM CELL BREAKTHROUGH
SCIENTISTS have developed a
jab for men who flop in bed
— and say it can even make
their manhoods bigger.
They say injecting 20million
stem cells into the base of the
penis reinvigorates the nerves to
create an erection.
The ground-breaking treatment could
now cure millions of men with erectile
dysfunction. It can even increase the
size of the patient’s willy, and could
even spell the end of the need for men
to take Viagra, it is claimed.
The research was initially
intended to assist men with
prostate cancer.

glands can cause degeneration

sels in the penis, making it shrink. The
therapy involves removing half a pint
of fat cells from the abdomen.
These are put in a centrifuge which
separates the stem cells, which are
then injected into the manhood.
Scientists claim to have successfully
treated eight men in an early trial.
Prof
Soren
Sheikh,
director
of
the Danish Centre for Regenerative
Medicine, said: “Stem cell injections
can restore full function.
“These trials look good but there is
still a way to go.”
The Sexual Advice Association estimates that millions of men have
erectile dysfunction.
Some 47,000 British men are
diagnosed with prostate cancer
each year. More than 12,000
die each year.

terror as
I walked
to shops
EXCLUSIVE by ALEX WEST
A WOMAN fled in fear
after being chased by a
beaver — on a housing
estate in Gloucester.
Nancy Fofana, 22, was
walking to a supermarket
near her home at 10pm
last Sunday when the
giant rodent ran out of a
hedge towards her.
She managed to shoot
a video of the creature as
it stopped to stare at her.
She said: “It had a
pointy nose and long tail.
It turned and stared and
started towards me. I
thought it was going to
attack so I ran.”
Nancy, a fashion student from Tuffley, is adamant the 3ft creature was
too big to be a rat. She
thinks it came up from
the nearby River Severn.
Beavers became extinct
in Britain 500 years ago
but have been reintroduced in the past decade.
Expert
Prof
Richard
Brazier of Exeter University said: “Given its size,
gait and the time of day,
it looks like a beaver.”

FREQUENT CRYERS
British children have
travelled abroad six times
and been skiing twice on
average before they hit
ten, a study says.
RANDY COUPLE T
TASK: Have sex at a
time other than
before bed.
Itzel says: “We
were in a rush as
we were due to
travel up north,
and my mind
was more into
packing my bag
and being late
than the sex
itself. Not the
best start to the
challenge.”
TASK: Have sex while
seated on chair or sofa.
Itzel says: “The rules
allow each of us to
veto one task, and I
vetoed this as I’d
have died of
embarrassment
explaining to our
live-in landlady
why we needed to
borrow a chair.
“We were both
quite disappointed.”
TASK: She brings him
to orgasm using the
body only.
Itzel says: “This
was a bit of a
disaster as
Dylan needs a
lot of physical
stimulation. He
was asking for
just standard
sex and it was
frustrating that we
weren’t allowed.”
TASK: Add toys into
your lovemaking.
Itzel says:
“Toys are not
really my
thing. I prefer
sexy lingerie,
quirky outfits
and props.
“So we
used a
blindfold and
some cuffs,
which I loved.”
TASK: Visit a sex shop
together.
Dylan says: “We
cheated slightly as
by the time we got
together the shops
had long closed.
“So we went
online instead. We
had a good giggle
at the products on
offer. My favourite
section was lingerie
and fancy dress.”
TASK: Have slow-itdown sex.
Dylan says:
“Slow sex is
always a winner
with Itzel as it
takes her ages
to get turned
on. We had
sex with me
on top then
swapped
positions. I was
very satisfied.”
TASK: Browse a list or
book of sex positions,
or watch a Kama Sutra
video together. Pick
new positions to try.
Dylan says: “We
went online to read
a Cosmopolitan
article.
“We’ve never
looked at anything
like this together so
it was an interesting
experience. It’s given
us some inspiration.”

me with the sex.

THE
TASK: Find a new place
in the home for sex.
Dylan says: “We
waited until 10pm and
sneaked downstairs,
planning to have
sex in the shed but
it was too cold for
Itzel. So instead, we
had sex in the
conservatory and
kept the lights off so
the neighbours
couldn’t see.”
TASK: Watch porn together.
Dylan says: “We’ve never
watched porn together
before as it just isn’t for
us. We changed to a
different video online
about ten times as
nothing really
gripped us.
“But we couldn’t
find anything that
did it for us and so
eventually we
turned it off.”
TASK: He brings her
to orgasm, without
intercourse.
Dylan says: “It
took ages, which
I have to admit
would normally
put us off
because of our
crazy schedules.
“But it was well
worth the effort
and it was great to
please Itzel.”
TASK: Let him
dominate.
Dylan says:
“We tried out
a load of
different
positions
and
rhythms.
“It was
great fun
and Itzel was
really in the
mood.”

bedroom.”
TASK: Full body massage

after a heavy
day at work.
“I had a great

“And Dylan

TASK: Each partner
brings self to an

Dylan says:
“Itzel had an
orgasm while I
was at work and
told me the
details. This got
me excited so I
had my orgasm
just after Itzel left for
work and told her
about it the next day.”
SWINGING from the chandeliers suddenly sounds lazy compared to the latest bedroom craze: The 30 Day Sex Challenge.
It was posted online by an anonymous couple who came up
with the idea as a way of keeping their love life fresh.
It involves carrying out a set saucy task, such as trying out
a new position, each day for a month – and Sun readers Itzel
Anaya, 31, and Dylan Bennett, 37, agreed to try it out.
The couple, from Bristol, have been married for seven years.
Barmaid Itzel admits their lovemaking had been cut back to
once or twice a week and become “a bit monotonous”.
But the challenge changed all that. Itzel explained: “It’s
added a bit of sparkle and kink to our sex life. I reckon now
we have sex at least three times a week.”
Builder Dylan added: “I liked that we explored new things
and it brought us closer. I’d recommend it.”
Here, EMMA PIETRAS shares the diary of their steamy month.
TASK: Multiple
orgasm day.
Itzel says:
“This worked
well for
Dylan but
sometimes
I just can’t
reach a
second
orgasm and
this was one
of those
occasions.”
TASK: Road trip. Drive
somewhere quiet, park, make
out and have sex in the car.
Itzel says: “We skipped this
and did it out of order instead – at
the end of the challenge when
the timing was better.
“We drove to a woodland
nearby and waiting really added
to the excitement.
“I hate the cold and while it’s
not exactly sexy I have to admit I
kept my socks on. It didn’t kill the
mood though!”
TASK: Oral sex only.
Dylan says: “Up
until about a
year ago
receiving
oral sex
was a very
rare and
special
treat. I
thoroughly
enjoyed it and
fell asleep with a
big smile on my face.”
30 lays
n 30 days
TASK: Quickie – take ten
minutes or less.
Itzel says: “There
was lots of teasing
between the two of
us throughout this
whole day.
“So when it
came to having
sex, I was in
the mood and
managed to get
there after just ten
minutes.”
TASK: Sex without
intercourse.
Itzel says: “I did a
bit of research by
going online
beforehand and
tried a few things
with Dylan, teasing
and stroking him.
But he just ended
up focusing on
me. It was quite a
long session,
which I enjoyed.”
TASK: Take a
breather from
the list and
. . . enjoy
a night of
just sex.
Itzel says: “We had to
skip this on the day and
do it later as we didn’t
manage to see each
other.
“In the event, Dylan went
on top and teased me. It was
slow and nice.”
TASK: Flip a coin to pick a
dominant partner. Say,
“Do what you want
to me”, but have a
safe word.
Dylan says:
“Itzel won the
flip and she
was great
at being
dominant.
“I thoroughly
enjoyed her
creativity.”
TASK: Let her
dominate.
Itzel says: “I
don’t usually
take the
lead and it
was quite
fun. I
enjoyed
telling him
what to do.
“Dylan
seemed to like
it a lot too.”
TASK: Advanced level
Kama Sutra. Find two
or three challenging
positions to try.
Itzel says: “I
bought a pack of
Kama Sutra
cards but some
positions aren’t as
easy as they look in
the picture, which
adds a bit of a
challenge. But I like a
good challenge.”
TASK: Share
fantasies with each
other during the
day by email.
Dylan says:
“We swapped
emails while I
was at work and
it was definitely a
real turn-on.
“It turned out
that my fantasies
were a lot more
graphic than Itzel’s!”
TASK: Sex
game with
three dice
labelled
with body
parts,
actions
and who
performs
them.
Itzel says:
“A fave.
Sweet, fun and
kinky.”
TASK: Stay up all
night – or as long
as you can –
having sex.
Itzel says: “It
was very late
when we
started as
we’d been to
a wedding.
We managed
about 25
minutes before
crashing out.”

BRENDAN BITES BACK AFTER SHOW TAX FURORE
HE’S the potty-mouthed comic
who became the BBC’s go-to
man for ratings – even beating
THE QUEEN on Christmas Day.
But BRENDAN
O’CARROLL, the
writer and star of Mrs Brown’s Boys,
found himself in the headlines for
the wrong reasons last year.
His co-stars were accused of
putting more than £2million into an
offshore tax-avoidance scheme. But
in an exclusive chat with me,
Brendan put up a robust defence.
His daughter FIONA DELANY, her
MARTIN
and
their
husband
PADDY
HOULIHAN
were
co-star
turned over by the BBC’s own investigations team, Panorama, for using
a legal scheme to pay less tax
on their earnings for the
award-winning series.
Brendan said: “It was just
three
actors.
They
did
nothing illegal. They did
THE BBC is slashing VICTORIA
DERBYSHIRE’s award-winning
show in half as part of a
package to save £80million.
Her two-hour current affairs
programme will move to a later
10am slot from the autumn and
run for just 60 minutes.
Corporation bosses quietly
made the decision last year.
A Beeb insider said: “BBC
news has to make £80million
of cuts so, like other radio and
TV news programmes, Victoria
Derbyshire is doing its bit.
“This means it can carry on
doing exclusive interviews and
original stories while saving on
studio costs.”
The move is a surprise as
Victoria, top, won a Bafta last
year and two Royal Television
Society awards in March for
her work on the programme.
Panorama – the Beeb’s
flagship current affairs show –
is also likely to be hit by cuts.
I’m all for the BBC making
savings, but surely endless
episodes of programmes such
as Homes Under The Hammer
are a better place to start.
bi
absolutely nothing
illegal.
“Here’s the big
thing:
Close
the
f*****g loophole. It’s
that simple. Close the f*****g
loophole.
It
must
be
facilitating something.”
The
revelations
didn’t
appear to faze Brendan,
whose hit programme has
spawned spin-offs which
include a talk show and
a movie.
He joked: “We went
back out on stage a
week after and the
audience
stood
up
and f*****g clapped,
thinking
we
were out
dodging
tax!
We
hadn’t. We pay a f*****g
fortune in tax.
“We live in America.
So we pay tax in New
Zealand,
Australia,
America, Canada, UK
and Ireland. We pay a
lot of tax. But we prefer
to pay tax because we do
use the roads, we do educate
our kids in the schools. We don’t
mind paying our way.”
The scheme was revealed as
part of the so-called Paradise
Papers, a series of millions of
leaked
documents
detailing
offshore investments.
The complicated process saw the
trio using a web of companies to
avoid paying tax on their earnings.
The scheme is similar to the kind
used by comedian JIMMY CARR —
and appears to have saved them
thousands of pounds in income tax.
The list of those involved was farreaching, even including the Queen.
Brendan added: “One of the things
they pointed out was about the
Queen having £10million invested in
some island off-shore.
“She’s the f*****g queen of the
Commonwealth. She’s the queen of
that f*****g island! She’s entitled to
invest
her
money
in
the
Commonwealth, regardless of what
breaks there are.
“They didn’t know anything about
Paradise, or whatever the f*** it was.
They certainly weren’t driving a
£20million jet into the Isle of Man to
skip the VAT.”
The BBC’s main concern with
Brendan now is not his finances but
whether he can deliver another hit.
Mrs Brown’s Boys is now only
rolled out for festive specials but the
talk show All Round To Mrs
Brown’s, in which celebs visit Agnes’
house with their mums, is also
hugely successful.
The new series starts this Saturday, with guests including DANNY
DYER, ANDREW FLINTOFF and STING.
Now Brendan’s thoughts are turning to the sitcom’s Christmas special,
which he said has yet to be written.
He said: “The BBC will be ringing
in about four weeks’ time. ‘How we
doing? How we looking? We just
want to know what design the
Christmas tree is going to be, what
extra stuff we’ll need’. I’ll go, ‘Yeah,
well, I’m working on it’.”
Mrs Brown’s Boys first aired in
2011 and won Brendan the Best
Comedy gong at the 2017 National
Television Awards, left.
And even he can’t believe how
well things have panned out.
He said: “I thought I’d be signing
on again. I thought I’d be f*****g
collecting my dole. I don’t realise the
impact that this has had.”
And Brendan insists he isn’t
worried about offending snowflakes
by wearing a dress.
He joked: “Mrs Brown’s answer to
that would be, ‘Well, I have always
been well supported by the LGBTLMNOP community’.”

METHOD: Bash up a packet of shopbought meringues and mix with an equal

as you can’t have too much.
Remove the stems from the strawberries
and whizz them up with the sugar in a
blender. Using the poshest glasses you

BROADCAST journalist Danielle
Aleksander, 31, who is single and
lives in East London, hopes to look
just like her mum when she’s older.
Danielle says:
I used to look like my dad but I’ve
noticed I’m morphing into Mum –
which isn’t a bad thing because she’s
such a babe.
I do see guys checking my mum out
sometimes.
I wish that I could look as hot as her
one day.
We get mistaken for sisters all the
time.
The pair of us can hardly go out the
house without people thinking that.
We were out one evening and the
barman asked me what I’d like to drink
and then said: “And what’s your sister
having?”
I burst out laughing. His face went
bright red and he obviously wasn’t
joking.
It’s funny and my mum loves it as
much as I do.
She’s a sister and a mum rolled into
one – and I am very happy that
I’m turning into her.

MUM-OF-TWO Teresa Ziemniak, 56,

She is retired from her job selling
homes but life is far from slowing
down for her. She says:
I’m used to getting this kind of
attention, because I’ve never quite
looked my age. I find it funny that now I
even get confused as being the same
age as my daughter. No one can
believe I have a daughter in her 30s.
Danielle and I even went on a girls’
holiday to Malaysia last year.
Anyone we got chatting to assumed
we were two sisters on a break
together, but we love seeing people’s
faces when we say Danielle is actually
my daughter.
Danielle doesn’t mind. In fact, she’s
desperate to look like me.
She’ll come over and rummage in
my wardrobe, come out wearing my
top and I’ll never see it again.
We do everything together. We love
to eat out and have a few glasses of
wine. It doesn’t bother me though,
we’ve always been close, and I am
just glad we can have this type of
of relationship.

SINGLE Courtney Cansdale, 26, is
a support worker who lives in
Southampton. She tells us that she
constantly gets mistaken for her
fitness-fanatic mum – but admits
there is no chance of keeping up with
her in the gym, much to the
amusement of their fitness coach.
She says:
Mum and I work together and I get
mistaken for her all the time. She
always looks immaculate so I take it as
a compliment.
We do everything together and even
share a personal trainer.
Mum’s a real hottie and miles fitter
than I am.
At our first session, the trainer
was definitely shocked that she was
my mum.
When we started to do the workout,
I could tell he was trying to hold back
laughter at my poor attempts next
to Mum.
Mum’s really into cardio and can run
circles around me – and she can even
lift heavier weights. Our trainer always
says to me, “Come on, train more
like your mum”.

Jimi, 56. She is also mum to
Daniel, 32, and has a two-year-old
granddaughter, Ruby. She thinks
her carefree attitude helps her
appear younger and has even been
thinking recently about getting her
first tattoo. She says:
I may be a grandma but I’m always
out – mainly training in the gym.
Courtney loves tattoos and we’ve been
thinking about getting matching ones.
It would probably be another reason
for people to think we are sisters.
When Courtney came to work with
me, people just laughed. Nobody
believed she was my daughter. People
still joke about it.
Courtney is a bit more reserved than
me. She has moved into her own place,
but we’ll often turn up wearing similar
outfits. We have a similar style.
I used to have a lock on my bedroom
door because she was always stealing
my clothes.
We spend all our time together. We’re

KIRA-MALOU Youren, 22, is a
professional dancer and in a

to being centre stage, but when her
mum is around she steals the
spotlight. Kira says:
Everyone has always told me how fit
my mum is.
I’ve come to accept that she will
always get more attention.
An ex-boyfriend I had even fancied
Mum more than me.
For my 18th birthday, a group of my
friends went out with a group of Mum’s
friends. It was the first time we’d
properly gone out together.
Mum hadn’t taken her ID, she didn’t
think she’d need it, but was stopped
by the bouncers. I had gone in before
her and she pointed to me and said,
“That’s my daughter!” They just
laughed at her.
People always ask if we are sisters.
When we’ve been out together,
she has wanted dance-offs with me but
I often have to sit down because I’m
tired and my feet are aching – while
she’s giving it some on the

therapist Kelly Youren, 44, lives in
Southampton with husband Michael,
52. Kelly, who is also mum to Amelia,
14, says:
I was only 22 when I had Kira, but I
looked even younger – I was very
baby-faced.
I would take her out for walks in
the pram and people would ask if
she was my little sister. I had to
convince them I was her mum and that I
was in my 20s.
As Kira started to get older, I did
notice the boys she brought round
having a laugh.
On one occasion, Kira made a
comment about me being older and I
said, “Don’t mock, this is your future!”
Her boyfriend turned around and
jokingly said, “Oh, yes please.”
At work I’m surrounded by young
people so I know about the latest
trends. And working in nutrition, I have
to look healthy.

KATHY’S HEARTACHE: DAY 1
PAUL, I DON’T CARE
WHAT YOU’RE
DOING, GET OVER
HERE NOW. I NEED
TO SPEAK TO YOU
Dear Deidre
I LOVE my girlfriend but I
have lost my sex drive.
Six years ago I suffered
from depression but I let
people think it was laziness
rather than mental issues. It
lasted for about a year.
I am now 29 and have
been with my girlfriend, who
is 28, for four years. Things
were good but I’ve struggled
lately with anxiety. I get panic
attacks and trivial things can
set me off. If she tries to help
me when cooking, for
example, I take it as criticism.
I have no interest in sex
and she feels unwanted. She
thinks it is her fault but I feel
inadequate. I’ve even
thought about ending it all.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Hiding
your feelings is adding to
your depression and
anxiety. It’s not unmanly to
admit to feeling vulnerable.
Tell your girlfriend you
love her but have struggled
with depression before and
feel low now. Say losing
your sex drive is a sideeffect but the right help can
make all the difference.
Talk to your GP but also
see thecalmzone.net (0800

help younger men.

immediately if you feel
suicidal, call Samaritans

WHAT’S THE
MATTER? I’M

TO DINNER
ER, SORRY, KATHY, THAT
WAS THE OFFICE ON THE
PHONE. I’VE GOT TO GO IN
FOR AN URGENT MEETING
A MOMENT of weakness
when I had sex with
a guy at work has now
destroyed my perfect life.
I am 37 and was happily married. I work in a large department
store and a rep for a new clothing
firm made an appointment to see
my boss three months ago.
I am deputy manager of that
section and my boss asked me
to show out the rep following
the meeting.
It was near closing time and this
guy asked me if I would like to go
for a drink before I went home. I
accepted
and
messaged
my
15-year-old son to say I would be
late home.
My husband, who is 40, was on
a business trip abroad. I so wish
now he’d been at home.
I took the rep to a town-centre
bar and we had a drink. Then he
suggested dinner at his hotel,
as he had a food allowance from
his firm.
He’s in his early thirties and
very fit. We flirted a bit more over
dinner and ended up in his room
Dear Deidre

or the pregnancy and then

girlfriend before.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You must
be very wary of moving in
with someone controlling.
I suspect it is because he
isn’t really right for you that
you have been thinking so
much about this younger
guy. Don’t drift into a trap.
Tell your boyfriend you are
not in the right place to
commit and take a break
while your feelings clear.
A spell of being single can
help with that.
SEX isn’t everything but
my fiancée shows me no
affection, not even a kiss.
I am 34, she’s 30, and we
have been together for nine
years. At first, the sex was fantastic. But since the arrival of
our son, who is 18 months, my
fiancée has gone off sex.
We have only had sexual
contact of any sort twice
since our wonderful boy was
conceived.
I love her and can’t imagine
life without her but I am at the
MUM’S IN
THE DARK
OVER HIS
WEDDING
MY brother is getting married
but refuses to tell our mum
anything about it.
She has always been
controlling and manipulative.
She was very unkind to him
and, in the end, he couldn’t
take it any longer. He is 38
and ended all contact with
her four years ago.
Mum often asks me about
his life. I am his younger
sister, now 36, and get on
well with him but it is tough
being in the middle.
He asked me not to tell her
about the wedding. Should I
tell her but not give details?
I am going to the wedding
with my partner, who is 35,
while our five-year-old
daughter is going to be a
bridesmaid. She is very
excited and I can’t expect her
not to say anything.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It is your
brother’s choice not to tell
your mother about the
wedding – and not your role
to tell her. Explain to him
you worry your daughter
may let it slip but you can’t
break his confidence.
The wedding should be
what the bride and groom
want and he has made his
feelings clear – they sound
understandable.

more comfortable about it.

0 DEIDRE SAYS: If your husband has
found someone else, that must have
happened pretty quickly.
If he has rushed into a new
relationship so soon after your
marriage broke up, it may well not last.
Tell him your son is suffering most
and that he will be happier and more
likely to do well during these vital
years in his education with his parents
reunited in a stable relationship.
See if he will come with you for
couples’ counselling with Relate
(relate.org.uk, 0300 100 1234).
It could be to minimise the damage
to your son at first but it might help
you both see how best to rebuild
your marriage.
He is throwing away a lot and it isn’t
all down to you.
If your husband is adamant he will
not try again, you can’t do it alone. But

LETTER
When members can stay
awake, they are voting against the
will of the people over Brexit.
At the same time, they get paid
an astronomical amount that most of
us pensioners would love on top of
our pensions.

THE only way to ensure
the press remains free
to report the news is to
dispense with the
regulator Impress.
After 295 MPs voted
to gag the press, it is
obvious the free press
will always be under
threat while a state
regulator exists.
I’m sure a lot of
constituents would like
to know before the next
election if their MP
voted for censorship.
PEOPLE of this once great,
free land voted for Brexit
— and then a bunch of
unelected morons kick us
in the teeth.
It’s about time we took a
stand. Close the outdated
House of Lords and let its
members find real jobs in
the real world.
MAGGIE GILBERT
Putney, South West London
PROF Simona Sharoni is
“exhausted with confronting sexism”.
What she needs is to get

THE Lords are trying to
thwart Brexit for their
own greedy needs and
charging us £300 a day to
do it.

IT is great to hear Sir
Alex Ferguson is
recovering following
his emergency brain
surgery. The legend
sent me a letter with
very wise words of
advice when I was 11,
after I was diagnosed
with diabetes. All the
best, Alex.

YOU write that David
Lammy MP has accused the BBC of
“paying lip service” to diversity
among its staff. In fact, the BBC is
more diverse now than it’s ever been.
We are committed to leading the
way on this issue and are well on
the way to hitting a target of having
15 per cent of all staff from a Black,
Asian and minority ethnic (BAME)
background by 2020. Since 2015, the
number of BBC BAME staff has
risen from 13.1 per cent to 14.5 per
cent at March 31 2017.

THANK you to The Sun for sticking
with the people over Brexit and
keeping the pressure on our dithering Prime Minister.
Theresa May has had two years to
get things rolling and to put the
remoaners in their place.
Now it looks as though she has no
plans for a “no deal”. The lack of
planning seems criminal.

As the thought processes of Mercury settle into your money
sector, you have strong saving and spending instincts. They
help you recognise other people’s true motives even when they
are unexpected. In romance, what starts as a meeting of minds
soon turns into love that boosts your confidence in every area.
As you welcome the logic and communication skills of Mercury
into your sign, you feel the benefits at once. There is added
sparkle in your mind-mapping and uninhibited ideas come to
rest on “success”. In terms of passion, your new love looks like
a former partner but is more forgiving and more generous.
For the next 15 days, you have the gift of personal insight, as
Mercury goes into the deepest part of your chart and you are
suddenly sure about the job and lifestyle you need. This may
not be where you expect but you will adore it. Love is fully on
your terms, so make it clear what those terms are.
Mercury brings out your special skills for dealing with people
and you have a natural talent for love on every level. If you are
single, you can attract people just by thinking about them.
Long-term couples share three exciting secrets. But what
makes your day is turning a dream real for a very kind relative.
At work and when there is family business to settle, your quiet
authority makes you a natural to take charge. Yes, you are ready
for this! Mercury’s new position makes it easier for different
generations to talk to each other. In love, someone who does a
job you totally respect shows how romantic they can be.
Your world is getting bigger and your ideas bolder. But the real
surprise is how much you enjoy a learning challenge. Someone
who has lived for a year in a glamorous European city is seeking
a chance at love with you. Don’t answer straight away. Instead,
give yourself time to think. Luck opens a silver envelope.
The mindfulness of Mercury plus the emotional impact of the
moon help you make caring, clever changes to upgrade family
life. When it comes to love, you are flummoxed when the last
person you expect sets up a romantic date. Involved? A partner
may find it hard to ask but needs to know your heart is still in it.
You are so strong on your own but joining together with one
other person works even better. This can be a love bond – and if
you are single, choose someone as smart as they are smiley.
Practical teams of two can work like a dream too and get you
thinking about a fast-paced future.

Longchamp after landing his first-ever Classic with Teppal.
But the meeting was mired in controversy after jockeys
protested about the state of the turf at the new £100 million revamped Paris racecourse.
Simcock’s raider sprang a 12-1 surprise in the French
1,000 Guineas. The race was run on the outside
track — used for the Arc De Triomphe — after
U S Navy Flag slipped up in the earlier 2,000
Guineas on the middle track.
French ace Christophe Soumillon said:
“The ground is terrible. The track is full of
divots.”
Simcock ( right ) was not complaining,
though, after his filly’s narrow success
under Olivier Peslier. The trainer said: “She
had a lovely run round, she had a good draw
and a good position. I’m delighted.
“She saw it out well, which was a worry coming here over a mile but she got it well.”

optimistic about the

“He was getting

he has a lovely way
of galloping.
“He gallops low to
the ground and those

to stay.
“He settles nicely
and
relaxes.
There’s a whole

to him.
“Saxon Warrior is

TEMPLEGATE’S TOP TIPS
H
DON’T Mes with my big fancy in Catterick’s 4.40.
MESHARDAL (nap) has won four times from
seven races over course and distance. He was runner-up
to two of the other attempts and is nicely weighted on
last year’s track success.
CHELTENAM DE VAIGE (3.45 Kempton, nb) has
finished second in both his races since joining
Fergal O’Brien. Conditions suit him and his trainer has
been banging in the winners.
REGULATION (4.50 Kempton, treble) bounced
back to form when winning over track and trip
last month. He was rated a stone higher in his pomp.

LANCASTER . . . win
Sex text
just the
job, Stu
From JONNY FORDHAM
JOHNNY SEXTON revealed
Owen Farrell’s glowing
reference helped Stuart
Lancaster recover from
his England humiliation.
The Ireland fly-half sent
a text begging the sacked
Red Rose chief, 48, to
take rookie Leinster boss
Leo Cullen’s offer of a
coaching job.
And they all celebrated
in Bilbao on Saturday
after a 15-12 win over
Racing 92 earned Leinster
a record-equalling fourth
European Cup crown.
England failed to get out
of their World Cup group
in
2015
following
four years without a
Six Nations title under
Lancaster.
Yet Sexton said: “If
you know rugby, he did an
unbelievable job.
“England won four out
of five matches in the Six
Nations two or three years
in a row and got nothing.
“Ireland won four out
of five and we got two
championships.
“With him as coach we
always
found
England
really hard to play against.
“I spoke to Leo before I
sent the text, obviously.
“But I’d talked to a few
English guys, Owen and
Andy Farrell mainly, and
they spoke very highly of
him. That’s why I sent it.”
Gustard
Ed-ache
EDDIE JONES’ World Cup
plans could need a huge
re-think if Paul Gustard
lands the Harlequins job
this week.
England’s defence guru
is in the running to be
Quins’ new head coach —
along with Olympic gold
medal-winning
Sevens
boss Ben Ryan and Wales’
Shaun Edwards.
Gustard, 42, is hugely
respected by the England
players and losing the
ex-Saracens
defence
coach would be a hammer
blow for Red Rose boss
Jones just 16 months
before the World Cup.
2GM
WOODS BACK
K IN FORM
WATCH OUT,
TIGER IS
NOW A...
CROUCHING TIGER
. . . Woods lines up a
shot on the second hole
at Sawgrass yesterday
FURY . . . world dream
Hughie’s
got news
for Josh
By SIMON SHAW
Major player
TIGER WOODS completed a
“dream dozen” for the second
day running at The Players
Championship.
And it proves the former world
No 1’s hopes of adding to his 14
Majors could soon become reality.
He showed glimpses of his former
greatness at Sawgrass — and even
convinced arch-critic Johnny Miller he
can be a “real factor” in the US Open
and The Open in the coming months.
But Woods ran out of steam on the
closing stretch — just like in the third
round when he was eight under after 12.
Having covered the same stretch in six
under this time, he was into a share of
second, forcing former US Open champion Webb Simpson to look anxiously
over his shoulder despite a huge lead.
And Woods, 42, said: “I got myself up
there and within four of the lead at one
point. The golf course was playing soft
and there were a lot of birdies. I played
so well, even better than Saturday.
“I felt good with the putter the entire
week. I had the speed on the greens and
I knew the worm was going to turn.
“I felt like if I had played the last five
holes in three or four under par I could
have been right there.”
Woods again paid the penalty for
By DAVID
FACEY
at SAWGRASS
pressing too hard. It cost him a shot on
day three but last night he followed a
bogey at the 14th by dumping his tee
shot into the water at the notorious 17th.
As his ball sank into the depths at the
island holes, so did Woods’ hopes of
posting a score to turn up the
heat on Simpson.
A closing 69 saw him finish
on 11 under par — the same
mark as 2017 runner-up Ian
Poulter in joint-11th and one
off another in-form Englishman, Tommy Fleetwood.
Despite
his
disappointments over the finishing
holes, Woods still played the
final 36 in ten under, shooting
his lowest score for three years
with his Saturday 65.
And there signs there is a lot more to
come, as Woods produced easily his best
golf in nine starts since returning from
the back operation that saved his career.
Former Open and US Open champion
Miller, now a top TV commentator,
shared that view, even though he had
dismissed Woods’ chance of more Majors.
He angered Woods by warning the
“big danger is that he could come back
and embarrass himself”.
But Miller was singing a different tune
after Woods’ Saturday showing.
That hauled him from the cut line into
the top ten entering the final round.
But at eight under par he was still 11
shots behind Simpson (below), who
ultimately sailed in at 18 under last
night — four shots clear of the field to
bag a monster £1.4million cheque.
Miller was particularly impressed
with how Woods was hitting his
famous “stinger” — the piercing
long iron shot that seems to
fly further than most of us
go on our holidays.
And Miller added: “I think
we can all agree in those
first 12 holes we saw the
real Tiger Woods.
“You have to be impressed
by the way he’s hitting his
stinger.
“That
could
prove
especially
effective at links-style courses like
Shinnecock and Carnoustie for the next
two Majors.
“If he plays smart there, and putts as
well as he did during that 65, he could
be a real factor in those Majors.”
Top-rate Yates
SIMON YATES proved why he is the
Brit to beat at the Giro d’Italia as he
pulled further ahead of Chris Froome.
The Bury rider, 25, stayed in the
pink jersey with a stage nine win.
Four-time Tour de France champ
Froome lost over a minute on the
climb to Gran Sasso d’Italia.
Yates (right) said: “I heard Froome
was already a bit behind but it was
very difficult in very high altitude here.”
But he added: “There are still many
difficult stages to come. I don’t think
you can rule out anybody.”
Froome said: “It was brutal. If you
have a bad day, that’s what happens
here. I knew that coming into the race.”
HUGHIE FURY has warned
Anthony
Joshua
and
Deontay
Wilder:
I’m
coming for you.
Fury, 23, stopped Sam
Sexton in the fifth round
at the Macron Stadium in
Bolton to win the British
heavyweight title.
And that moved him
closer to another crack at
world honours following
his loss to Joseph Parker
in September.
Hughie, cousin of Tyson
Fury, wants to be fasttracked to a shot at Joshua
or American Wilder.
He said: “They’ll try and
duck me but when I’m
made mandatory challenger
they won’t be able to.
“I’m determined to be a
world champion.
“I’m
a
big
threat.
Nobody wants to fight me
because they know what
will happen.
“When I get the world
title belts I’ll hold on to
them for a long time.”
Fury is trained by dad
Peter Fury and heaped
praise on him.
He added: “I wouldn’t
be where I am if it wasn’t
for him.
“Straight
after
the
Parker fight he told me to
get back into the gym and
work on what went wrong.
“I dedicate this win
to him.”
Vas track

stopping Jorge Linares.
The Ukrainian won the
WBA lightweight world
title in New York despite
going down in the sixth.
The 30-year-old stopped
the Venezuelan with a left

Lomachenko has won a
world title in a third
weight division in just his
12th professional fight.
No man has claimed
titles in three divisions
faster. He said: “My father
told me: ‘Go to the body’. ”
Linares, 32, said: “That
body shot surprised me.”

But, as Pakistan made Ireland

It saw the Irish finish the day on

FORMULA ONEE SPANISH GRAND PRIX
Turn up or
shut it, Lew
From BEN HUNT
FIA president Jean Todt
has told Lewis Hamilton
to quit moaning about
Formula One and start
attending his meetings.
The Brit and fellow
four-time world champ
Sebastian Vettel blasted
F1’s proposals to SLOW
cars down in a bid to
increase overtaking.
snapped
Todt
But
back, saying if they want
to express their opinions, his door is open.
He said: “Any driver
who wants to see me
will be able to see me
within 48 hours.
“I respect them and
know how busy they can
be. Unfortunately very
often there is a meeting and they don’t go.
“If you understand
something is getting
wrong, you should try
to find a solution.
“We all say we want
to have a better sport,
to have a better show,
so let’s do something.”
Wheel win it
HAM: I’VE GOT CAR TO TAKE WORLD TITLE
By BEN
HUNT
LEWIS HAMILTON cruised to
victory in the Spanish Grand
Prix and then crowed: Now I
have the car to become a fivetime world champion.
The Brit, 33, had been left baffled
as his Mercedes struggled behind
Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari.
But, following his win in Baku last
month, Hamilton was triumphant in
Barcelona to move 17 points clear of
the German in the championship.
More importantly, it comes as a
massive shot in the arm for the
increasingly-confident Hamilton.
The four-time world champion
said: “I felt a synergy with the car
that I hadn’t been feeling all year.
“This is when we are going to
start applying some pressure.
“It’s early to say but I hope it can
be part of a turning point.
“Race by race we are understanding the tyres more. I was really
surprised nobody had the pace to
keep up with me.
“I’m nearly in the groove. It is
definitely the closest I’ve been to it
all season. The more comfortable I
am, the more the
pace shows, so
that’s what we’ve
got to do, keep
applying
the
pressure and see
in BARCELONA
if we can get more and more on top
of it.”
Hamilton finished 20.5 seconds
ahead of Valtteri Bottas, whose
second made it a Mercedes one-two
for the first time this season.
The defending champion barely
came under pressure to win his 64th
grand prix — his 41st from pole, which
surpassed
Michael
Schumacher’s
record set in July 2006.
He added: “It is the greatest
feeling to come here and have that
kind
of
performance
and
a
convincing win.
“You could see what it means to
me when I got out of the car.
“I am going to sleep like a baby
because I know I did my job this
weekend to the maximum and did
not leave anything on the table.”
Hamilton made a great start and
avoided the first-lap chaos caused by
Romain Grosjean, who inexplicably
spun and then drove into Pierre
Gasly and Nico Hulkenberg.
That earned the Frenchman a
three-place grid penalty for the next
race in Monaco and two points on
his licence. Grosjean, who was once
branded a “first-lap nutcase” by
former
driver
Mark
Webber,
defended his actions.
He said: “I don’t think there was
much I could do.
“If I had braked, the car would
have slid the same way.
“I tried to stay on the throttle to
spin it to try not to face other people.
If I had braked I would have stayed
in the middle and it would have been
the same thing.
“Unfortunately once the car started
going forward again on to the track,
it was very difficult.”
Max Verstappen completed the
podium as Vettel came home in
fourth after his Ferrari team forced
him to make a second pitstop.
Vettel defended the team’s strategy,
which came during the Virtual
Safety Car period to recover Esteban
Ocon’s stricken Force India.
Hamilton cheekily labelled the
decision a “mistake” but Vettel said
he had no option but to stop.
He added: “We were going through
the tyres quicker than the others.
“It looks different and it looks
wrong but from the inside I think it
was the right thing to do.”
Ferrari’s misery was compounded
by Kimi Raikkonen’s retirement.
The Finn
was one of
six drivers who did not finish
the race.
The Italian team also squandered
points in China when a botched pitstop left a mechanic with a broken
leg and forced Raikkonen to retire.
Meanwhile, Red Bull boss Christian
Horner said Verstappen’s podium
finish — his first of the season —
heralds
a
new
start
for
the
controversial Dutchman.
The 20-year-old came under fire
for his driving in Bahrain and
China, while he was also involved in
a smash in Baku with team-mate
Daniel Ricciardo.
Horner said: “It’s a great
boost for Max to stand on the
podium for the first time
this year. He’s had a
difficult start.
“Starting
a
new
chapter in Europe I
think will really
settle him and
send him on
his way.”

Wigan...............28
By MARK MASON
WIGAN made the most of
an extra man to reach the
Challenge Cup last eight.
Danny Tickle was redcarded at the end of a
feisty first half, following
a punch-up with Warriors
back row John Bateman.
Hull KR boss Tim Sheens
said: “Danny was defending himself. I’m hoping the
charge won’t be as savage
as if he was the aggressor.
“He got punched and he
punched back. But there
was some talk of a headbutt so I don’t know until
I get the charge sheet.”
Liam Marshall put Wigan
ahead at half-time after
Chris Aitkin had cancelled
out Josh Woods’ opener.
Yet Rovers’ Junior Vaivai
barged over and a Ryan
Shaw penalty tied it up at
10-10 with 22 minutes left.
But Sam Tomkins, Tony
Clubb and Tom Davies
crossed to secure Wigan’s
place in the quarter-finals.
Coach Shaun Wane said:
“We’re in the next round
and that’s what I wanted.”

Toronto who at one point

Andrew Dixon was sent

the Championship leaders
went 8-0 up, with Liam
Kay already in the sin bin.
Skipper Josh McCrone
and Darcy Lussick were
next to get yellow cards
from ref Ben Thaler, with
Warrington captain Chris
Hill describing it as “like
playing pub league”.
Price slammed the niggle, saying: “The first half
was like watching Lord of
the Rings, it was one of
the slowest games ever.”
Adam Higson and Kay
ensured Toronto were only
12-10 down at half-time.
Doubles from Josh Charnley and Ben MurdochMasila and Tom Lineham’s
treble fired Warrington to
a 12-try Challenge Cup win.
Toronto chief Paul Rowley said: “Our discipline
was not good enough.”

“We

next year.
“I have won this award
and I am very proud. I
have had a great season.”
Asked if he can win the
award again, he said: “I will

Liverpool now head to
Spain for a training camp

“It’s simple — Premier

JOSE
MOURINHO
says Michael Carrick
WILL

Manchester United.
The
Special
One’s
long-time assistant, Rui
Faria, is leaving United
—
ending
a
17-year
partnership
with
the
United boss.
Mourinho
will
not
replace him, but instead
wait for Carrick to be
ready
after
the
exEngland midfielder finished his playing career
yesterday to join Mourinho’s backroom staff.
Carrick — captain for
the day — signed
off at Old Trafford by setting
up
Marcus
Rashford’s 34thminute
winner
against Watford.
And
boss
Mourinho said: “I
will organise my
coaching staff in
a way where the
assistant
manager
figure
doesn’t exist.
“I am going to have
assistant coaches, fitness coaches and a
structure where we
have specialists in
different
areas
connected
to
performance.
“The particular reason is I
think it will be

in the future —
when he has

“Then he can

“When Rui is

I
have
nobody

the
world of football
ready to be my

assistant. So I prefer to
structure my staff in a
way where there is education and improvement.
“And when Michael
has
the
pro
licence
badges along with the
personality,
friendship
and honesty he has, I
think it will be for him.”
After
464
United
appearances
over
12
years, Carrick, 36, will
have an immediate say
in finding the midfielder
to replace him.
When addressing the
crowd after the game, he
thanked Mourinho for
giving him the
chance to work
in his set-up.
Carrick said: “I
have to thank the
manager
an
awful lot. It is
an
unbelievable
opportunity.
I
look forward to
learning off him,
he is one of the
very best.
“I am sure he
will teach me a
few things and we’ll have
success in the near future,
I’m certain of that.”
Mourinho
dismissed
rumours Anthony Martial,
not
selected
for
yesterday’s 1-0 victory,
had driven away from
the ground in a strop.
He added: “Not true,
he’s injured. He was
injured
in
Friday’s
training
session
and
couldn’t train.
“He had treatment in
the
morning
at
the
training ground.”
The knee injury now
makes Martial a doubt
for Saturday’s FA Cup
final against Chelsea.

WENGER’S FITTING FAREWELL
JUST like when he first
strolled
into
Highbury’s
Marble Halls 22 years ago,
an
image
of
Herbert
Chapman smiled at Arsene
Wenger on his last day.
Arsenal’s previous greatest
manager, Chapman, had been
tempted by a fat pay rise to
leave champions Huddersfield
and head to North London in
1925.
Some things in football never
change. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the scorer of the final goal of
Wenger’s reign, was apparently
lured here by a £198,000-per-week
basic-wage contract and a lucrative
bonus structure — which includes
£50,000 for every win and loyalty
payments totalling £15.15million.
Yet this was not an occasion for
too much cynicism.
And it was fitting that, on a day
of almost unremitting niceness, a
photo of Chapman (right) should
grin out at Wenger from the
corridor wall outside the visitors’
changing room at the John Smith’s
Stadium — just as it had once done

close to paradise for the Frenchman — pass-and-move football in
the sunshine and an Arsenal win,
the 707th he had chalked up in
1,235 games as Arsenal manager.
Then there was praise from all
four corners of a full house and
even from the high heavens, where
planes trailed affectionate banners.
Wenger had broken with routine
and headed out to the dugout an
hour before kick-off to soak up the
atmosphere.
He said: “It was my last day and
I thought I deserved a bit of
oxygen.
“It was nice weather, the people
were nice, Huddersfield were happy.
Herbert Chapman came from here,
so to come here on my last day
was a special meaning, when you
know the history of our club.
“Chapman smiled at me, as he
was on the photo outside the
dressing room.
“Really, I should have announced
I was leaving every week, as people
have been so nice.
“Huddersfield showed lot of
class.
“In all, it has been a
fantastic human adventure
for the last 22 years.”
Wenger had been given a
guard of honour and gone to
Arsenal’s travelling fans to bow
towards them before kick-off.
He said: “That was
spontaneous. I know
that we’ve disappointed the away
fans this season, many of them use
their whole week’s spare money to
travel.
“We had disagreements which I
accept but we loved Arsenal Football Club and I wanted to share
that with them today.”
Wenger’s players, who have rarely
raised their game since the
manager’s exit was announced
three weeks ago, at least
avoided an eighth straight
Premier League away defeat.
And so, strangely, it ended
1-0 to the Arsenal against a
hungover team fresh from an
all-nighter in a lap-dancing
bar.
That sounds like a
snapshot
of
how
English football used to be before
Wenger swept in from Japan to revolutionise ‘boring, boring Arsenal’
and the wider game in 1996.
Huddersfield had celebrated after
securing their unlikely Premier
League survival with a draw at
Chelsea on Wednesday.
And so this place was in party
mood, with Terriers fans hailing
their own cut-price heroes as well
as saluting Wenger with an ovation
planned for the 22nd minute but
actually began in the 23rd.
Two planes proclaiming ‘One
Arsene Wenger — Arsenal Legend’
and ‘Merci Arsene — We’ll Miss You
Too’ took to the skies in the first
ten minutes, greeted by Huddersfield chants of ‘You two-faced
b*****ds you wanted him out!’
That was a bit harsh.
It is not contradictory to salute a
man’s

including an unbeaten Premier

message: ‘Kroenke — You’re next!’
That suggests the club’s American
owner ‘Silent’ Stan Kroenke has
not gained popularity merely by
virtue of Wenger’s departure.
There is much hard work to be
done in Wenger’s wake.
And if, as seems likely, Kroenke
opts for a cheap, inexperienced
successor,
there
may
be
some way further still to
fall.
Wenger claims Arsenal
need just three additions to challenge for
the title.
But after a cursory
glance at his final
starting line-up, you
would up that figure to
at least eight, possibly
ten. This squad is bang
average.
Aubameyang, whose outstretched leg at the far post converted an Aaron Ramsey centre
and gave Arsenal their first-half
winner, does offer genuine quality.
But despite all the love shown to
Wenger, you will struggle to find
anyone who believes the club were
mistaken in easing him out.
The 68-year-old is determined to
manage again — although he claims
he is not yet ready to do so against
Arsenal.
And the man who did so much
to make the English domestic game
a worldwide phenomenon, was keen
to declare his own love for his
adopted homeland.
He said: “I love English football
but I also love England. You do
not stay 22 years if you
don’t like it.
“It’s a special country, special for football. It’s difficult to
understand when you
don’t
know
how
deep the love is for
the game here.
“When you’ve experienced this intensity
for such a long time, I
don’t know where I go
from here.”
And so with Arsenal no longer
wanting him, Wenger feels he can’t
live with English football and yet
he can’t live without it.
Many an old romantic will
understand that sentiment.
And Wenger remains a romantic,
right down to his old bones.
It’s been
a fantastic
human
adventure for
the last 22
years

The Brazilian No 1 has enjoyed an outstanding first
season in English football since arriving from Benfica
for £34.9million in June.
And he has been rewarded with the longest
contract City have ever given out — which replaces
his original two-year deal — and keeps him with the
champions until the summer of 2025.
Reports in Portugal suggested Ederson, 24, was on
a relatively modest wage
of £65,000 a week when
he arrived.
And senior City sources
said his low personal
demands were one of the
reasons they were willing
to pay such a big fee.
However, that is set to
go up to around the
£100,000 mark as part of
the improved terms.

REAL MADRID have backed plans to expand the Club

Infantino’s proposals for the £2.2billion event.
Manchester City and United have held talks with
football’s governing body about
the new enterprise.
Real, winner of the last two

are the highest-profile club to

As SunSport reported on Friday, the tournament would be

JOBSEEKERS? . . . Allardyce and Moyes
IT LOOKS

STILL SUIT
West Ham..............................3

By ANDREW DILLON
SAM ALLARDYCE suspects he will be
fired by Everton this week.
Boss Allardyce still has a year on his
contract but admits a heavy defeat at
West Ham and football’s rumour mill
won’t have helped his cause.
Big Sam is deeply unpopular with
Everton fans and has talks planned
with club owner Farhad Moshiri today
in London — but he fears bad news.
Allardyce said: “I can’t quite say I’m
confident after all the rumours I’m
reading because, generally, there is no
smoke without fire is there? But we’ll
wait and see when we meet up.”
Meanwhile, David Moyes is officially
on the dole after his short-term deal
expired at West Ham.
The Scot strengthened his position
ahead of talks with the Hammers’ hierarchy with yesterday’s thumping win.
Two classy goals from Manuel Lanzini
and a Marko Arnautovic rocket saw
them end a turbulent season in 13th.
Moyes, who took over in November
with the club in the bottom three, said:
“I’m back on the streets come midnight
but, look, it’s not us challenging each
other, far from it.
“I’ve had a really good relationship
with the board, we speak regularly. But
I’d like to change things and maybe
not everybody is happy with change.”

WHAT a difference a year makes
for Antonio Conte.
On the final day last May, the
suited and clean-shaven Blues boss
was all smiles lifting the Premier
League trophy after a 5-1 Stamford
Bridge thumping of Sunderland.
But yesterday, a bearded and tracksuitclad Conte looked lost as he stood
on the St James’ Park sidelines to
see Chelsea miss out on the
Champions
League
after
a
humiliating 3-0 defeat.
Beleaguered
boss
Conte
admits Chelsea must make
radical changes or they will
suffer FA Cup humiliation
at the hands of Manchester
United at Wembley.
The Italian said: “We
must change — if we
think we can play a
game like this in the
final of the FA Cup, we
don’t have a chance.
“We have six days to
change our approach,
our desire, our fight.
“For this, I am the
first person to answer
as I am the coach.”
Conte led Chelsea to
the title last term but
they have only finished
fifth this campaign, 30
points behind champions Manchester City.
Saturday’s final with
former Blues boss Jose
Mourinho’s United is
now expected to be
Conte’s last at Chelsea.
He added: “We have
to play the last game
in the FA Cup and
then, as you know
because I am always
repeating it, I am
committed to this club.
“The most important
thing is what the club
thinks, not you or the
speculation about me. I
have a contract and the
club know the situation.
“After Saturday, we go
on vacation then we’ll see.
“It’s important to finish this
season and whether I am confident
about next season is not important now.
“We want to finish this season in the
best way and our fans deserve more.”
It is quite the fall from grace for Conte,
whose side have finished four places, 23
points and 23 goals down on last year.
And Conte amazingly admitted he could
not get his players up for this Newcastle

potentially on the line.
The Chelsea chief said: “You’re talking
about spirit and the other team was more
determined. I think I wasn’t able to get
through the determination to my players.
“When you’re at the end of the season,
it can happen. Newcastle outplayed us and
they deserved to win — but I’m the first
person to answer for this.”
Roman Abramovich, for one, will need
no reminder about who is to blame.
The Chelsea owner will not take kindly
to the financial disaster of failing to
qualify for the Champions League.
And even an FA Cup triumph looks
unlikely to save Conte now. For all their
bluster, the Blues have actually finished
five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
Conte knows the year left on his deal
means
little
given
Abramovich’s
willingness to wield the axe.
Conte said: “Ask the club the damage of
missing the Champions League. There are
other people to judge.”
Quite how Conte picks his players up
for the FA Cup final remains to be seen.
Conte made eight changes from the side
which drew 1-1 with Huddersfield in
midweek, including giving Ross Barkley
his first game since January.
But the Blues suffered the same score as
Barkley’s last game, against Bournemouth.
Dwight Gayle opened the scoring with a
23rd-minute header, before Ayoze Perez’s
second-half double.
Only keeper Thibaut Courtois kept the
score down to three.
And Conte added: “Newcastle outplayed
us in many aspects. We lost every single
ball and it wasn’t good.
“Newcastle looked more determined than
us. But we didn’t lose a place in the
Champions League in the last two games
because our chances were zero anyway.”

“It is not in my hands,

“I don’t know if the

“I know what we

“It is so important to

“After four years we

THERE are a ton of reasons
to admire this Manchester
City team.
And
one
of
the
most
significant is the way they
keep playing right to the end.
The Premier League record century
of points which Pep Guardiola’s
fabulous team hit thanks to
Gabriel Jesus’ last-gasp winner
is a nice round number, of course.
But when other teams make a
better fist of challenging City for
the title — as they surely will next
season — their hunger for success
and sheer will to win will be key
weapons in their bid to make this
an era of dominance rather than a
one-season wonder.
As a moment, Jesus’ strike in the
fourth minute of stoppage time will
never compete with Sergio Aguero’s
stunner which clinched City’s first
title for a generation, six years ago
to the day.
What it does suggest, though, is
that this group of players is
capable of doing what the first
dream
team
assembled
by
Abu Dhabi money could not —
achieve the kind of domestic
dominance which Liverpool did
in the 1980s and Manchester
United in the 1990s.
It is not the first time
a late goal had sealed
the points for City this
season.
And boss Guardiola
said: “The important
thing is that in the
game we tried, we
tried, we tried.
“So I know you
need some part of
luck
to
score
these kind
of goals. I
cannot
deny it.
“But
we
tried. We could
say ‘OK, it’s
already,
we
stay here and
pass the game’,
but we try.
“Sometimes, the
guys who try to win, always
you have your reward.
“Always our targets is to
arrive in April and May, playing for the titles. Next season
this will be our main, main target. So next season, in November and December, people will
say ‘City have less points than last
season’. That is going to happen.
“We are going to lose all, all, all
days to compare with this season,
all of them. That will not be
important. Important is focusing

staying up with a kit giveaway
how
we
can
improve,
when
we play against
teams so deep,
attack more fluently, better,
we are working on that,
continue to be a good team.”
As Guardiola reflected in
the build-up to this game,
City cannot yet be spoken of
in the same breath as those
great Liverpool and United
teams of the past.
To do that, this side must
win league title after league
title and, you have to say, win
a Champions League or two.
The latter, in particular, will
be a tough nut to crack, particularly if City are made to
work harder for future Premier

League crowns than they did for
this one. They finished 19 points
clear of the rest, after all.
But the way the players celebrated Jesus’ goal, with keeper
Claudio Bravo running the length
of the pitch to join in the bundle
in front of the away fans, suggests
it will not be in the desire
department that City will be found
wanting.

It did not feel like that for long
periods of the game, though.
City dominated possession, as ever,
but the intensity was not always there,
particularly in the first half when
Southampton had the better chances.

It bears repeating, in the words of

LIVERPOOL have finished in the top four in
consecutive Premier League seasons for
the first time since a run of four between
2005-06 and 2008-09.
From
stress to
impress
for Klopp
BUT IT’S KIEV UP NEXT
By CHARLIE WYETT
EVERYONE left Anfield
with
their
fingernails
intact.
And with Liverpool booking
their ticket for next season’s
Champions League, boss Jurgen
Klopp was a happy man.
A certain match against Real
Madrid in Kiev on Saturday
week is unlikely to be stress-free
but Klopp believes this easy win
proved why his team is maturing.
And why, perhaps, they could
be
the
ones
who
make
Manchester City work a bit
harder for the Premier League
title next season.
Mo Salah became the first
player to score 32 goals in a
38-game Premier League season
and Dejan Lovren, the muchmaligned Croat defender, netted
a cracking header.
To prove this team has a
bright future, striker Dominic
Solanke grabbed his first goal
for the club and £10million left-

of the signings of the season,
hammered in the fourth.
Incredibly,
this
was
also
Liverpool’s 17th Premier League
clean sheet, a feat not achieved
since 2010 — who said they were
dodgy at the back?
At times this season the Reds
have made life difficult for
themselves.
But boss Klopp said: “I said to
the boys after that if someone
from
outside
described
our
season at Liverpool, it is drama.
LIVERPOOL: Champions
League football is a
certainty regardless of
what happens in Kiev.
When everyone thinks it is done
we make a game exciting but we
have shown we have matured.
We need more consistency.
“Nothing
happened
in
the
game. It was never open. We
were never on the edge.
“We now have two weeks to
prepare for the final but what
the
boys
have
done
is
unbelievable.
“We have had so many injuries.
Today, Adam Lallana came on —
we have missed this player for
virtually a whole year.

middle-finger gesture caught on
camera post-match at Anfield.
The Brighton ace (left)
claimed he was reacting
to his friends in the
crowd who reminded him
about a flight to his wedding ‘blessing’ in Dubai.
March, 23, said: “I

“We need a few more players

TO BE
FEARFUL
BRIGHTON: Boss Chris
Hughton has to avoid
the infamous secondseason syndrome.
Brighton failed to clear a corner,
Robertson crossed and Lovren
delivered a towering header for
his first Prem goal at Anfield.
Solanke delivered the moment
he had been waiting for eight
minutes into the second half.
Salah worked some magic
and teed the ball up and
the young striker smashed
it into the top right-hand corner.
Solanke said: “I have been
dreaming for this moment.
“I have had to wait a while
and it was annoying not scoring
but I have kept going and the
hard work has paid off.”
Injury-hit Lallana came on as
a 73rd-minute substitute and will
be hopeful of being included in
the England squad this week.
Then Robertson, who has been
a major success since joining
from Hull, scored his first goal
for the club by lashing home.
By then, Salah and Roberto
Firmino had been replaced to
standing ovations. Roll on one
last game in a couple of weeks.

CARLOS CARVALHAL refused
to shoulder the blame for
Swansea’s relegation and says
he has a future at the Liberty.
The Portuguese coach claims that
chairman Huw Jenkins has asked
him to stay on despite going down.
And
he
pointed
the
finger
squarely at predecessor Paul Clement, saying: “The few points we
managed in the first part of the
season made things very difficult.
“During my 18 games in charge
we achieved more points than
Stoke, Huddersfield, West Brom,
Southampton, Watford and Brighton.
“I tried to bring in five players
in January but nobody wanted to
come because we were bottom so
it was hard to improve the team.
“The owners asked if I’m available
to talk about staying but I must
speak with my family and agent.”
Yet few at the Liberty seem to
share
Carvalhal’s
unshakeable
belief in his ability.
“We are f****** s***” chanted the
furious supporters before being
joined in a rousing chorus of
“going down, going down” by the
visiting Stoke male voice choir.
Swansea started the day needing
to win well, while hoping that
Southampton lost at home to Manchester City with a ten-goal swing.

avalanche they required. Instead
they went out with a whimper, losing their fifth game in a row to a
Stoke team already relegated.
Like Carvalhal, Stoke boss Paul
Lambert is also keen to stay on and
said: “The chairman Peter Coates
said a few weeks ago I would be
here next season. Whether that
remains the case, we’ll see.”
Andy King gave Swans hope of
the greatest of all escapes with his
14th-minute opener.
But those fanciful ideas were

equaliser,
before

PEP GUARDIOLA became

MANCHESTER CITY have
taken football to another
level this season.
I have not seen anything
quite like what they have
been producing week in,
week out.
Manchester United fans will
point to their Treble season
and Arsenal to the Invincibles,
but it was never quite like this.
But while City have played
great football, they cannot yet
be regarded as a great team.
Because great teams don’t
just win titles, they retain them
— something City have failed to
do after their previous two
Premier League triumphs.
Great teams also transfer
their winning football from the
domestic stage into Europe. A
nut City have still to crack.
Can they do it?
Well, most certainly
they can go on and
retain this title and,
indeed, keep it at
The Etihad for three
or four years.
They are that far
ahead of the rest.
The
final
league
table and 19-point
gap tells us that.
I really don’t see
how United or Liverpool can make up that
difference next season.
The fact that Jose Mourinho’s side have come second
playing
largely
uninspiring
football tells you where the
challenge is at.
United have produced some
very good stuff at times, have
beaten all the other sides in
the top six, including City, and
could end up with an FA Cup.
But they are still not in the
same ballpark as Pep Guardiola’s team, who have broken all
records on their way to winning this title.
What United need to rediscover is the ruthless mentality
that meant the visit of West
Brom was every bit as important as a high-profile encounter
with City or Liverpool.
It was that which won Sir
Alex Ferguson so many titles.
They will spend, as will Liverpool. Unfortunately for them,
so will City.
So it is a huge task and one
that Mourinho already appears
to be suggesting may be too
hard to overcome.
That, in a way, is a shame
for the Premier League as we
always love a title battle rather
than a procession.
That is why, for all the brilliant football City have produced this season, their lastgasp triumph over QPR to
snatch the title away from
United in 2012 will live longer
in the memory.
Not that there will be any
complaints from Eitihad fans as
the season wraps up.
With that, I shall dish out my
annual ‘Shearers’ here for brilliance and heroic endeavour
throughout the season.

This should not always go to
the man who wins the title but
on this occasion it has to.
You might argue that it is
easy to be the best when you
spend the most.
It will not have been easy for
Guardiola to transform the City
he took on to the one that has
graced the league this season.
It was a good team he inherited but not as good as this.
People questioned whether he
could transfer the Barcelona
way to English football or
whether he would have to bend
to our ways.
Well, he hasn’t. He has stuck
to his beliefs, methods and
principles — and the result has
been phenomenal.

GOAL OF THE SEASON
WILLIAN
Brighton on January 20, after
only six minutes, showed just
what they can do.
Willian started and finished
the move, first firing a pass to
Eden Hazard, who flicked it on
to Michy Batshuayi.
He in turn back-heeled a
pass to the Brazilian and he
buried a shot from 18 yards.
HERO OF THE SEASON
SEAN DYCHE
It was a tough call not to make
Dyche manager of the season
so I had to make up another
category. To get Burnley into
Europe
was
a
remarkable
achievement on his budget.
What a job he has done at a
club who are an object lesson
to those who panic when things
start to go wrong.
Burnley had a long-term plan
that meant relegation did not
cost Dyche his job.
He was allowed to continue
to build and come back even
stronger — and this has been
the result.
SHOCK OF THE SEASON
THREE PROMOTED TEAMS

I don’t know what the odds
were but I wish I’d had a
tenner on this.

Hughton and David Wagner

and Huddersfield respectively
all
secured
their
top-flight
status before the final day.
It was telling that each team
did it with the core of the sides
that won them promotion.
Makes you wonder what they
could do with a bit more
investment where possible —
not least at my own club.

(right) said: “From the

“They have their way

“It felt like they were

Friday’s defeat meant Fulham

Odoi claims the team will use
that defeat as motivation, as
well as last week’s loss to Birmingham, which ended their

them an automatic spot.
The 29-year-old said: “We’ve

while the chances of signing

Yet Odoi warned his teammates the grass is not always
greener with another side.
The defender, who left Belgian minnows Sint-Truiden to
join giants Anderlecht in 2011,
said: “Any of our players that
teams might show an interest in
need to understand that the
best option for them is to go up
with Fulham. I’m talking from
my own experience of moving
from a smaller club to the biggest club in Belgium.
“Here in Fulham, everyone
knows what they can do. When
they go to a team in the Premier League, nobody cares
about who you are and what
you did. You have to start
from scratch.”
Midfielder Sessegnon could
well leave even if Fulham do
go up as all of Europe’s big
boys are watching him.
The 17-year-old did not
have the best of times
against Derby and was
subbed late on.
Yet Odoi added: “I have
so
much
respect
for
Ryan. Yes, he is going to
have a lesser game towards
the end of the season but
we know his qualities and
we are all comfortable in
his abilities.”
Sessegnon scooped five
awards at last month’s
EFL Awards, including the
Championship Player of
the Season, but his form
has faded since.
Yet manager Jokanovic
also gave him his staunch
backing, saying: “He has a
really bright future, not

Ben wants home help
BEN GIBSON hopes the bizarre home curse
in recent fixtures between Aston Villa and
Middlesbrough strikes again tomorrow.
In the last 12 games the two sides faced
each other, the hosts have NEVER won in a
record that goes all the way back to 2005.
The visitors have been victorious in the
last three meetings, with the most recent
coming on Saturday when Mile Jedinak’s
15th-minute header gave Villa a 1-0 lead in
this play-off semi-final first leg.
Now Boro need the strange pattern to
continue at Villa Park tomorrow evening.
When asked about the odd record,
defender Gibson (left) said: “Let’s hope it’s
an omen, a carbon copy. It’s a good pitch,
it’s sold out, it’ll be fiery and fantastic, two
good teams fighting to get to Wembley.
“That’s the reason we play football and it
will be a brilliant occasion. We’ll be geeing

each other up there in the dressing room.
We are quietly confident.”
Boro did not do enough in attack on
Saturday, though Britt Assombalonga did
miss a hat-trick of chances.
But Gibson, 25, was gutted to concede
Jedinak’s winner from a corner. He said:
“Credit to Villa, they defended well. They’re
a good side and will be favourites but there’s
a lot of positives for us to take from that.
“We just have to nail down the final ball
whether it’s being more creative.
“But to concede that goal from a set-piece
is terrible because we’ve been dominant
from set-pieces.
“We know it won’t be easy, they’re going
to make Villa Park a cauldron. But we’ll go
there and have a shootout. Bring it on.”

the second half when Sessegnon got in behind us.

two clubs stayed up every year.
But beyond the numbers there is
definitely a feeling these days that

BOSSES UP TO TASK
— after the big six in the Premier
League — there is not much to
separate the rest of the top flight
and the top of the Championship.
Neil Warnock said as much
moments after securing promotion
for Cardiff this term.
The 69-year-old veteran really
fancies his chances of keeping the
Bluebirds in the Prem next season
for that exact reason.
And remember, this is possibly
one of the poorest squads to go up
in recent times — even if they also
may be one of the most cohesive
units to manage the feat.
You could argue that parachute
payments have shortened the gap
but then neither Huddersfield nor
Brighton were receiving them last
term. And look how Norwich, Hull
and Sunderland have fared this
term despite benefitting from that
extra funding.
The one thing any smart-thinking
club can use parachute payments
for is to help build a club from the
ground up.
Burnley did just this when they
went down in 2015.
They spent it on a new training
ground rather than lavishing it on
players, sensibly kept faith in Sean
Dyche — and now look at them.
The Clarets have just finished
seventh in the top flight.
Warnock pointed towards Dyche
when asked if there was any
OLLIE IS NO WALLY
YOU wonder what more Ian
Holloway could have done
at QPR.
He returned to Loftus Road
18 months ago to deal with a
squad
still
divided
from
Premier League relegation.
Holloway, 55, had to offload
big-earners like Sandro and
Steven Caulker and had no
cash to replace them.
A looming punishment for
breaking FFP rules tied his
hands in the transfer market,
meaning he had to rely on
frees and loans. But he made
it work, comfortably keeping
Rangers in the league this
year with standout wins over
promoted Wolves and Cardiff.
Ollie (right) also brought
through many youngsters and
the R’s will no doubt profit
from his work given the rising stock in players like
Eberechi Eze.
Regulars may say the football was not always great to
watch but this was very much
a transition period for the club.
If it is to be Steve McClaren
who comes in next, after Ollie’s
exit last week, it will be
fascinating to see what more
the ex-England boss can do
— given the competition QPR
face in the Championship now.
As for Holloway, it was a
shock to see him return to
management initially and you
would not be surprised if
that was it for the ex-Bristol
Rovers and Millwall chief.
But let’s hope he stays in
football, perhaps back at
Sky as their EFL pundit
because the game needs
characters. And Ollie, who
has bossed close to 1,000
games, certainly is one.

manager he was hoping to emulate
next term. Warnock, winner of a
record
eight
promotions,
said:
“Everybody knows the job Sean
Dyche has done.
“It’s quite remarkable, really. But
I don’t think everybody remembers
that when they got promoted to the
Premier League, they got relegated
the first year. Don’t forget that.
“It’s not all been bright — but the
board stuck by him.
“And with the players that we
will buy, even if we did get
relegated, we’ll have a great chance
of coming back up.
“We can use the money that
we’ve got for infrastructure, the
training ground, things like that.
“And hopefully provide a better
future for the whole club.
“It’s about more than just getting
promoted. It’s given us the tools to
move on now.
“I hope I can be instrumental in
making this a better place.”
Buying a new training ground
was presumably not exactly what
the Premier League had in mind
when they introduced the concept
of parachute payments.
But while they exist, savvy clubs
must work the system to their own
advantage.
Burnley have shown the rest the
way and Warnock seems to be
planning to follow their blueprint.
It is the equivalent of winning
the lottery and investing it in
property for massive long-term
gains — instead of just blowing all
your cash on a yacht.
And, that way, promoted sides
can look beyond just one-season
survival and really start to establish
themselves as part of the Premier
League furniture.
Otz of interest
EFL clubs can get Messi on a free this
summer — the “Turkish Messi”.
Anyone who watches the Football League
highlights will know that Walsall forward Erhun
Oztumer scores regular wonder goals.
And the London-born ace, 26, is going for a
song with his Saddlers contract up.
Pint-sized Oztumer is one of many talents
available for nothing and no doubt a scramble
for a player of his quality has already started.
You wonder if there is as much interest in

JON TAYLOR has hailed
bookworm Joe Newell for
firing the Millers closer to
Wembley, even if it means
another sleepless night.
The wingers both struck
on
Saturday
to
give
Rotherham
a
slight
advantage despite twice
being pegged back in a
thrilling League One playoff semi-final clash.
But Taylor is confident
they can finish off the job
at home on Wednesday
and set up the biggest
game of their careers.
Taylor, 25, said: “Me
and Joe are room-mates
but I don’t get any sleep
as he snores. He reads at
1am to get to sleep so will
have the light on.
“I need ear plugs. We
didn’t stay over this time
so luckily enough I didn’t
have to stay with him.
“We are disappointed
that we’re not taking an
advantage back as we
took the lead twice.
“We have got to see
Wednesday as our final
before we get to the final.
It will be the biggest game
of our season.
“I have never played at
Wembley
and
I’ll
do
everything to get there. It
will be the biggest game
of our careers.”
Taylor gave Rotherham
the lead on 17 minutes
with a neat finish but Nick
Daws’ side were level
within a minute.
Michael Ihiekwe sliced
into his own net as he
tried to clear a chip from
Duane Holmes.
Sub Newell struck on 64
minutes with his first
touch. But, with two
minutes left, Cameron
McGeehan bundled home
the equaliser following a
defensive mix-up to keep
the Iron in with a chance.
The midfielder’s goal was
his first since joining on
loan from Barnsley aiming
to re-start a career after
suffering a broken leg with
Luton last January.
McGeehan, 25, said:
“I’ve put a lot of pressure
on myself to come here
and score goals and I
haven’t managed to do it.
“It’s a massive goal for
me but it’s also important
for the team and we can
go to Rotherham in a
stronger position.
“We are still in this tie
and can go there and win.
“It’s been the longest
goal drought of my career
but the timing of this one
is good and hopefully I
can get another in the

winner booked Shrews’ place
in Sunday’s League One playoff final.
But Hurst revealed comments by Charlton’s interim
boss Bowyer after Shrews’ 1-0
first-leg win at The Valley on
Thursday inspired his side.
The New Meadow chief said:
“Lee had his say coming into
the game that he felt they
were the better team.
“It’s all about opinions. He’s
biased to his team, I’m biased
the better team. That’s the
important thing . . . team.
“It was mentioned. If it
wound them up I don’t know.
“I’m not saying it was lack
of respect, he was probably
trying to give his team confidence. But ultimately we felt
it was wrong and over these
two games I thought we were
the better side.”
Shrews’ celebrations threatened to turn ugly at the end
as police kept rival supporters
apart and there were allegations Charlton fans were pepper-sprayed while Shrewsbury
supporters goaded them.
Hannah
Peters
tweeted:
“How disgraceful the police
pepper spraying the Charlton
fans when the Shrewsbury
fans are allowed to do what
ever they want. Disgusting!”
Morris fired into the bottom
corner after Shaun Whalley
broke clear down the right.
Shrews players, who lost
last month’s Checkatrade Trophy final to Lincoln at Wembley, celebrated in the stands.
But Hurst insists they will
be back down to earth in time
to face the winners of Wednesday’s second leg between
Rotherham and Scunthorpe.
He added: “You have to
enjoy the moment but our
focus is on one big last game.”
Bowyer wants to carry on
as Charlton chief.
The former Addicks midfielder, 41, said: “I’d like to
stay but I’m not in control of
that decision. I love the club.
“Were Shrewsbury the better side over the two legs? I
don’t think so.”

DON’T DUFF UP DAVIES
By GRAEME BRYCE
COUNTY’S Richard Duffy does
not want Sky Blues sinner Tom
Davies to face trial by TV.
The Magpies captain looked to
have his leg deliberately trampled
on by Davies following a corner.
At the time Duffy was incensed
and confronted Coventry’s defender.
But he now wants to draw a
line under the unsavoury moment
in the first leg of their League
Two play-off semi-final.
The Welshman, 32, said: “To be
fair, he came up to me afterwards
and said he didn’t mean it.
“If that’s what he says, I’ll take
Coventry..........................1
Notts County.................1
his word for it. I felt the contact
and studs and I wasn’t too happy.
I thought it was a bit naughty.
“He apologised and said he
basically just ran across me and
stepped on me by accident.
“I wouldn’t be calling for him
to be banned. That’s not me. If
TV shows there was intent that’s
for people upstairs to deal with.”
Davies now faces a sweat until
referee Gavin Ward’s report is
submitted today. But Duffy was
19
in association with
sure about Coventry’s 87th-minute
penalty, which Marc McNulty
converted to cancel out Jonathan
Forte’s brilliant opener.
Matt Tootle was penalised for
what looked a perfectly-timed
tackle on Tom Bayliss.
Duffy said: “The ball’s gone the
other way. How he can possibly
give a penalty there is beyond me.
“What I said to him is not
printable. It’s a joke, really.”
Midfielder Liam Kelly urged
Coventry’s fans to make Friday’s
Meadow Lane return leg feel like
a City home game.
He said: “The noise from 17,000
fans was brilliant and we have to
take that atmosphere with us.”
WET WET WET . . . McNulty hits a puddle and a post
NEAL EARDLEY claims the
pressure is OFF Lincoln
for their Exeter return.
The tie is finally balanced
after the play-off semi-final
first leg at Sincil Bank.
But the Grecians are
favourites in Thursday’s
second leg thanks to
having home advantage.
However, Imps defender
Eardley, 29, believes he
and his team-mates —
who are bidding to make
it back-to-back promotions
— can play without fear.
He said: “Coming into
the play-offs I think all
three of the other sides
would have fancied themselves to be in those positions at the season’s start.
“We probably weren’t so
sure but that means we
can go out and enjoy the
game and hopefully end
up on the right side of it.
“But we’re disappointed
that we haven’t got an
advantage to take there.”
The best chance of the
game fell to Matt Rhead,
who saw his header crash
against the Exeter bar.
Exeter boss Paul Tisdale
said: “We go again on
Thursday and I think
Lincoln will fancy themselves — but so will we.”

Andrew Considine scored the

Aberdeen’s Shay Logan was

Logan later posted on Twitter
