MAY DAZED BOJO?S JET
THERESA MAY was last night
accused of ?kowtowing? to Brussels
in a blistering assault from the
figurehead of Eurosceptic Tories.
The blast from MP Jacob ReesMogg came amid a row over a customs ?back stop? option approved
by the Cabinet that could see Britain tied to Brussels rules after
Brexit. Mr Rees-Mogg said: ?You
wonder if the Government wants to
leave at all.
?The Government says one thing
and then agrees to do another.?
BORIS Johnson has demanded his
own Brexit plane to bang the
drum for Britain abroad.
The Foreign Secretary said he
needed an aircraft because the
PM?s jet was never available and
the Royal Family?s planes are too
old. And Johnson hinted that Theresa May?s grey RAF plane should
be repainted in a brighter colour.
Senior Tory MP Nicky Morgan
said: ?How much does a new plane
and fuel eat into Boris?s famous
�0million a week for the NHS??

CLAIM
lCarney: Economy hit lPM: UK is growing
DOWNING Street yesterday rebuked Bank of
England governor Mark
Carney for saying households were �0 worse
off after the Brexit vote.
He said the economy was
up to two per cent weaker
than forecast before the 2016
referendum.
Mr Carney told MPs on the
Treasury select committee: ?Real
household incomes are about
�0 per household lower than
we forecast in May of 2016,
which is a lot of money.?
No10 was swift to attack Mr
Carney?s assessment and immediately poured doubt on his pessimistic outlook.
The PM?s official spokesman
said: ?I would point you to the
fact
that
the
economy
has
remained very resilient.
?Growth has been a lot stronger than people expected after
the referendum. Real wages are
growing, UK exports are rising
By TRACEY BOLES
and MATT DATHAN
to a near record high, and
employment is at a record rate.?
At the G20 foreign ministers?
meeting in Buenos Aires, Boris
Johnson said Mr Carney was
wrong to say living standards
had dropped due to Brexit.
The Foreign Secretary also
WHAT HE SAID..
Household incomes
are �0 lower than
we forecast in 2016
WHAT P.M. SAID..
Wages are growing,
employment at record
high, exports rising
insisted: ?Both the UK and
Argentina will prosper thanks to
our ability to do unhindered,
unfettered
free
trade
deals
because that is part of our joint
perspectives.
?That?s
what
we?re
both
engaged on ? we both want to
be more outward-looking than
ever before and Brexit gives us
that opportunity.?
ARGENTINA gave Britain a
Brexit boost last night by
promising to increase trade links
after Brexit but reiterated its
claim over the Falklands.
Standing alongside Mr Johnson
in Buenos Aires, foreign minister Jorge Faurie made
clear his country was not
backing down on claiming
sovereignty
over
the
islands.
But he vowed to ?rebuild
mutual trust? with the UK
36 years after the Falklands War.

It comes as thousands of rail
commuters face yet more misery,
with a two-day Arriva Rail North
strike set to start tomorrow.
Unpaid drivers, guards, engineers
and ticket office volunteers at the
Dorset attraction quit last month
after a string of rows with Friends
of Poole Park, which runs the
miniature railway.
The railway, which first opened
in 1949, has since lost thousands of
pounds in business.
According to the website, the
railway is currently closed for
seasonal maintenance.
But a volunteer insisted
that was just an excuse.
They
said:
?Issues have
been brewing
for
months and

said

enough is enough. Everyone agreed
to down tools on the spot.
?More than 40 volunteers run
and operate the railway and without them it can?t run.
?The track issue is a diversion.
We have had good weather lately
and we have probably lost several
thousands of pounds in income
and disappointed lots of kids.?
Friends of Poole Park, which
won the contract to operate the
railway last year, has posted a plea
for new volunteers on Facebook.
Landlord Poole Council confirmed the railway was suspended
last month after a minor derailment and that a section of track
needed to be replaced.
A spokesman said that the railway?s operators had until the
middle of next month to
resolve
the situation
or the contract would
be put out
to tender.

FAIR COP BY JAV
Home Sec promises deal for ?overstretched? police
HOME Secretary Sajid
Javid will today promise
more help for Britain?s
overstretched cops.
He will pledge the ?tools,
the powers and back-up?
needed to get the job done.
Mr Javid?s speech to the Police
Federation marks a major shift
Pledge . . . Sajid Javid
By STEVE HAWKES
from Theresa May?s stance when
at the Home Office. In 2015 the
now PM accused police chiefs of
crying wolf over cuts.
The previous year she vowed
to curb the Federation?s power.
But today Mr Javid, whose
brother is a chief superintendent
in the West Midlands force, will
say: ?I?m not arrogant enough to
turn up here after three weeks
in the job and tell you how to
do yours. What I will say is that
I am listening and I get it. I get
that there?s increased demand.
?You?ve told me you?re feeling
stretched, overburdened and not
sufficiently rewarded.
?And
you
deserve
to
be
respected and valued.?
Aides said the speech would
not promise more funding but
that Mr Javid was clear he
wanted the Treasury to release
more cash for police forces. One
said: ?Today is about tone.?
Three years ago The Sun
revealed Mr Javid grew up on
Britain?s
most
crime-ridden
street, Bristol?s Stapleton Road.
As a result his brother Bas
decided to join the police.
Mr Javid will say: ?I?ve heard
what he has to say. I know the
tricky situations he?s been in.?

TRIATHLETE?
ON YER BIKE
The tactic, called drafting, was
said to have handed her a huge
advantage in the race.
In a TV chat with co-host
Dan Walker Louise, whose
book on her life as a triathlete is Amazon?s top-seller in
the athletics category, told of
completing the tough event.
But another woman who
did the 1,000m open-water
swim, 32-mile road ride and
6.8-mile run through slate
quarries hit out last night.
The 35-year-old said: ?It?s
a hard race. During the
cycling I feel like I?m dying.
Louise is making out she?s
done this super-duper thing
and it makes me mad.
?She?s lied to people a
little bit.? The woman said
she saw Samantha Gardiner
? a Team GB age group
triathlete ? riding close to Louise
for five to six miles and told them:
?You can?t do that!?
Afterwards she said she saw Louise being interviewed and was urged
by her husband to report her, only
to find others had pointed it out.
The woman said: ?Louise saw me
talking to the rep and came over. I
said, ?You cheated?. She said, ?Well,
I didn?t really because I didn?t
know she was going to be there?.
?I said, ?You had a draft?! She
said, ?I know I had a draft, and I
know how it looks but I didn?t cheat
as it?s not like I cheated to win.?
Louise called the woman yesterday
and said Samantha wasn?t a close
pal and surprised her in the race.
She said: ?Whoever approaches
me, I never say p*** off ? it?s not
my nature. I apologise profusely
and it will change the way I race.?
Samantha tweeted a pic of herself
with Louise on Monday. She said
she ?can?t believe? Minchin included
her in her book Dare to Tri ? My
Journey from the BBC Breakfast
Sofa to GB Team Triathlete.
Samantha, 47, yesterday denied
taking part in the event and denied
drafting. British Triathlon said Louise was not under investigation. She
declined to comment last night.
CAUGHT IN
THE DRAFT
DRAFTING is when a cyclist pedals
just behind another to have an easier
race by sitting in their slipstream.
Some research suggests it can
save the second cyclist up to 40 per
cent of their energy and cut wind
resistance by more than 25 per cent.
In some races, such as the Tour
de France, drafting is allowed but in
many other events it is considered
cheating and is banned.

THE
SAYS
Truth on terror
IT?S not enough merely to remember the
victims of the Manchester bombing, as
moving as yesterday?s ceremony was.
We must remember who killed them,
why, and do whatever it takes to prevent
a repeat.
The minute?s silence was beautifully
observed nationwide. It is uplifting that
Britain unites after such atrocities.
But let?s not treat the dead as if they
were claimed by some natural disaster
we are powerless to prevent. Let?s not
just put our trust in ?hope?.
They were massacred by an Islamist
extremist radicalised by the UK?s largest jihadist network. Up to 25,000 live
among us, with 3,000 a direct threat and
500 under constant surveillance.
Yes, we should mourn. But let us also
resolve to give our security services
every penny they need to keep us safe.
Let us lock away terror plotters for
decades. Let us stop known terrorists
who are still abroad returning home.
Let us force social media giants to
silence those who incite terror.
Let us maintain effective anti-radicalisation programmes such as Prevent,
even as the Left undermines them.
And let us stop pretending our greatest
threat is Islamophobia, instead of a warped
interpretation of Islam that justifies
slaughtering innocents at pop concerts.
A loss of plot
MARK Carney demeans his role as Bank of
England chief by churning out fantasy
figures to bash Brexit.
His claim that it has cost every family
�0 a year is based on the Bank?s own
back-of-a-fag-packet estimate in 2016
of how well we?d do if we voted Remain.
Given how hopeless its other Project
Fear predictions proved, the margin for
error must be 100 per cent.
Besides, it is not Brexit itself holding
back growth. It?s the uncertainty caused
by Remain diehards in the Commons
and Lords bent on scuppering it and
even destroying our Government.
It is destabilising for firms not to know
what Brexit will look like. If Theresa
May formed a position fully honouring
the result, and told the EU to like it or
lump it, the unease would end overnight.
Our economy would take off like a rocket.
Rape disgrace
IT is disgraceful that Google is revealing
rape victims? names via the ?autocomplete? function on its searches. The tech
giant must be held accountable.
But its software only produces those
identities because troublemakers or
morons have posted them illegally on
Facebook, Twitter or other forums.
They must be traced and fined heavily.
So must those social media firms. They
provide the platforms ? and are negligent about policing them.
Treat them as publishers and make
them responsible for content they host.
They?ll soon clean up their act.

STRANGE COALITION AT HEART OF EU
The Italian
no-mark
who could
derail
Brexit
PM IN
WAITING
Giuseppe Conte
GIVEN the frequent brickbats from
all sides over Brexit, some concern
is inevitable.
But anyone over-worried should study
what is going on in the EU. Its troubles
are now so severe that whenever I hear
Tony Blair or Michael Heseltine?s latest
frothingly bonkers appearance I wonder
if they study the EU at all.
Take events in Italy. That country
went to the polls at the beginning of
March. And even by Italian standards
the results were unusual.
Brussels used to think that its biggest
nightmare was Italy?s buffoonish exPrime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who it
pushed from office.
But this year the biggest election
winners were the Lega (a party that
certainly used to be ?far right?) and a
party from the wild, anarchist left called
Five Star.
So now the EU is faced with a
hardline Italian Euro-sceptic government
led by a party that was founded by an
actual joker, called Beppe Grillo.
Since
March
these
parties
have
worked to form a coalition. Talks stalled
last month and there was talk of
returning to the polls. But this would
have returned exactly the same results.
For a time, Berlusconi ? now viewed
with nostalgia by Brussels ? hovered
with his Forza party. Yet the man
who
frittered
away
his
comparatively stable time in
office finally agreed to take a
back seat. So the strangest
coalition in Italian history is
forming a government.
Now
the
whole
world,
including the EU, can see its
promised policies.
These include the gift of a
?guaranteed
income?
to
poor families, who will
receive 780 euros a
month.

No
prizes
guessing
which
part of Italy?s
coalition
wanted this
money-fornothing policy.
By DOUGLAS
MURRAY
It also promises the deportation of up
to 500,000 illegal migrants. Again, no
prizes for guessing which part of the
coalition wants this policy.
But just imagine this process. How
orderly do people think Italy?s deporting
of half a million people will be?
What is worse for Brussels is that the
new Italian coalition is sceptical of the
whole EU project (especially the euro)
and bullish on Italian debt.
Early
versions
of
the
coalition
agreements were leaked to the media
and caused panic in Brussels. After the
markets panicked, a document written
last Monday was declared to be old and
irrelevant on Tuesday.
No one in Italy has
ever heard of him
But as anybody who travels in Italy
or any of southern Europe will know,
deep bitterness remains (as in Greece)
about the behaviour of Germany and
Brussels since the financial crisis.
On a visit this month I noticed
the town hall in Naples covered
in a banner reading ?No to
unjust debt?. It is a common
and popular view.
One
that
transfers
all
responsibility for years of
financial
mismanagement
and corruption ? as well as
outrageous northern bullying
?
on
to
Germany
and
Brussels.
Despite begging and threats
from Brussels and Berlin,
Italy?s
new
coalition
government
has
promised revisions to
Italy?s debt-reduction
arrangements
with
COMIC . . .
Beppe Grillo
the EU and a plan to reduce Italian debt
through means other than ?austerity?.
All this at the same time as bringing
in a promised tax reduction.
And
now
another
headache
has
emerged. Having failed to agree on who
could lead this unlikely government, a
possible Prime Minister has finally
emerged. And the man now likely to
lead the country is someone nobody in
Italy has ever heard of.
Perhaps that is unfair. Giuseppe Conte
must be known to his immediate family.
And as a law professor at Florence
University he must be known to at least
some of his students. But the country as
a whole has no idea who he is.
The 54-year-old has never stood for
election and has no experience in
politics. He has been plucked as a beige,
compromise candidate to see through a
very un-beige period of politics.
Of course Italy has experience of
unelected leaders. The technocrat Mario
Monti was imposed on Italy by Brussels
and Berlin in 2011. But now the Italian
President, Sergio Mattarella, needs to
agree to appoint an unelected leader
who, rather than overseeing policies that
do Brussels? bidding, must run against it.
This could yet make Brexit negotiations
even more complex.
For while the EU may be resigned to a
departing UK, it cannot accept a revolt
from Italy ? one of its three core
member states. And so it has even less
cause to allow a smooth Brexit, for fear
that other member states also come to
see leaving as desirable.
So there will be rocky times ahead for
everyone. This weekend the French
Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire called
for Italy to respect all its budget
commitments. The head of the Lega,
Matteo Salvini, responded on Twitter:
?We will do the opposite of what
preceding governments have done.?
Yes, Brexit is proving a tricky process.
But events in Italy should be a reminder
that staying in the EU doesn?t equate to
a relaxing lifestyle either. Anyone who
claims otherwise must be too blinded by
ideology to notice that fact.

forcing her to marry.
The guilty verdict is
the first successful prosecution of its type.
The victim told the

He had got her pregnant when she was 13

EXCLUSIVE by MIKE SULLIVAN, Crime Editor
A MALE cop has won �0,000
compensation
after
suffering
sexism from his female boss.
Chief Inspector Adrian Denby, 49,
was in charge of a tactical unit when
he was victimised by Met deputy assistant commissioner Maxine de Brunner.
She wanted to challenge the squad?s macho
culture and flipped after seeing a cop with
only a towel round his waist in the office on
his way from the shower to the locker room.
De Brunner ordered a
probe after beer was
found in a fridge with a
price list on the front.
The Met also investigated unfounded claims
of homophobic bullying.
Mr Denby, who has
nine commendations, was
later removed from his
post. A tribunal found he
was discriminated against
and the Met has paid up
in an out-of-court deal.
It is also understood
the London force is helping him to set up a busi- Boss . . de Brunner
ness as part of the
settlement. With legal costs, the case has
cost it more than �illion, a source said.
It is thought to be the first case in which
a male cop sued his force over sexist bosses.
Chief Insp Denby, left, ran the Territorial
Support Group in Paddington, known as the
riot squad. He regretted not stopping male
staff crossing the room in towels but blamed
poor design of the office.
He claimed he was unfairly punished for
failings, while a female colleague in a similar position was not. He is on sick leave.
De Brunner has retired. The Met declined
to comment. mike.sullivan@the-sun.co.uk

THE

is,
apparently, ?proud to be a woman
and a feminist?.
No idea how Princess Anne reacted
when she heard that ground-breaking
news, but one likes to imagine that her
eyes rolled so far back in their sockets
that they had to be surgically recovered.
For unlike America, where virtuesignalling is practically an art form, over
here it is still largely frowned upon as a
wholly transparent and vulgar flaunting
of, as you see it, your own moral
superiority. Princess Anne is a feminist.

lawyer Amal

observing the Royal
Wedding.
According to one,
she was ?a sublime

speaking, Colman?s
Mustard yellow
might be more
accurate.
Either way, Ms
Clooney once again
proved adept at
pulling focus from
the other mere
mortals floundering
in her ever-stylish
slipstream.
By contrast, the
Duchess of
Cambridge?s
understated,
Alexander McQueen
frock coat got a
sniffier reception
from certain fashion
quarters, not least
because she?s worn
it three times before.
They?re missing
the point.
A wedding is
about the bride, not
the guests.
And Kate
understood that
perfectly by wearing
something that
wouldn?t propel her
into the limelight on
Meghan?s big day.
Now that?s style.
So is Her Majesty the Queen. They
haven?t felt the need to label themselves
as such; we know from their actions.
As the basic scriptwriting rule dictates,
show don?t tell.
To her credit, Meghan Markle
championed
many
charitable
causes that advocate female
empowerment before she met
Prince Harry, and no one is
suggesting
she
shouldn?t
continue with this work.
But what grates about the
above statement is the unsaid
inference that here is a feisty,
13
independent woman who, unshackled by
pomp, ceremony and dutiful political
impartiality, is going to drag the stuffy,
deluded old monarchy kicking and
screaming into the 21st century.
That this go-get-?em gal from
the US of A is going to shake
things up with a few bumpersticker sentiments and teach
those Brits a thing or two
about how the world works.
Oh dear. Will you tell her, or
shall I?
Or perhaps we should leave it
to
Patrick
Jephson,
former
private
secretary
to
Princess
Diana, a man very much in the
know on the inner workings of
the House of Windsor.
In his book, The Meghan
Factor, he says: ?The one key
skill Meghan absolutely must
perfect is how to avoid being
seen
as
any
kind
of
a
destabilising force. It?s a useful
guideline when weighing the pros
and cons of any intended course of
action, from saving a local playgroup, to
saving an endangered species, to saving
the planet. What always comes first is
saving the monarchy.?
Quite. In other words, don?t get up the
collective nose of the British public or
they might just, ahem, pick it and flick
you off into oblivion.
As we saw on Saturday, as Bishop
Michael Curry?s address entered what felt
like its third decade, The Queen?s
resolutely impassive expression suggests
she?d make a fine poker player.
We have no idea what she thought of
it, nor Donald Trump, Brexit or the
highly political Me Too campaign. She
has opinions, of course. But what she
doesn?t do is wear them like a badge.
Soapbox just got bigger
Just like her great-great-grandmother
Victoria, who advocated ?never complain,
never explain?, The Queen knows the
future of the monarchy lies in being a
non-political figurehead who promotes
national unity.
Jephson adds: ?If you acquire a profile,
a purpose and a passionate public
devotion
independent
of
the
royal
mainstream,
then
you
risk
being
perceived and presented as a threat to
the Crown itself.?
We already know what Meghan thinks
about an awful lot of things, because her
life so far can?t be edited.
We also know that her soapbox has
just got bigger thanks to her new status
which, to those unused to it, could foster
the corrosive misconception that everyone
is hanging off your every word.
Read my pursed lips: They?re not.
They?re just being polite.
So Meghan must learn fast that
she?s a very minor cog in an ancient
royal machine that has survived so
long by saying nothing and doing
its duty to its loyal subjects.
Frustrating that may be for a
?feminist? (or, indeed a manist), but
that?s the trade-off for the largely
taxpayer-funded life of luxury that is
granted, not self-generated.
As a celebrity, you can say what
you like and we can choose to listen
or not. But opinions divide people
and, as a royal, you are supposed to
represent everyone.
Meghan needs to understand, and
implement, that distinction sooner
rather than later.

STANDING alone on stage

embark on the biggest

The flame-haired troubadour
will go on to hold 1.13million of
his adoring British fans in the
palm of his hand over 18 nights,
each paying more than � to
see their hero.
Superstar Ed Sheeran is bringing
his 206-date Divide world tour back
to our shores ? and it is set to make
a fortune.
Industry figures reckon Ed, 27, will
gross �6million per gig, and given
his minimal stage production and
that he plays without a band, most is
destined for his pocket.
He is expected to bank an incredible �0million from the shows,
which should help him surpass Adele
to become the UK?s richest music
star under 30.
Ed kicks things off with four shows
at the Etihad Stadium, then stops by
Glasgow and Newcastle before a stint
at Wembley Stadium. His four nights
there is a feat beaten by only one
other individual artist ? Michael
Jackson played seven shows there 30
years ago. Ed bids us farewell after
four gigs in Cardiff from June 21.
It is not just on tour where Ed is
in demand. His worth will continue
to rise in the studio, too, given the
fact EVERYBODY wants to work with
him and get their mitts on one of the
songs. Whether it is up-and-coming
UK grime acts, US pop divas or rock
royalty in the form of Mick Jagger,
Ed is the go-to man for a hit.

HOW TO MAKE PERFECT POCKET PICK-ME-UP
POACHED
SCRAMBLED
USE the freshest eggs possible.
Add a splash of white wine
vinegar to a pan with 5cm of
water and bring to simmer.
Crack the egg into a ramekin.
Stir the water to create a gentle
whirlpool and slide the egg
softly into the middle.
Cook until you can see
the white is set ? usually
around three minutes.
Lift out with a slotted
spoon, letting it drain for
a few seconds. Place the
spoon on kitchen paper to
absorb any water and serve.
CELEB CHEF TIP: Tom
Kerridge says to cook the
egg in its shell for ten
seconds first to set the
white and help it keep
its shape.
MELT a very generous knob of
butter in a small frying pan over a
low heat.
Crack in two large, fresh eggs
and stir immediately with a
wooden spoon.
Add salt and pepper then
stir frequently, but not constantly. Keep the heat very
low and cook slowly.
Remove from hob just
before you think they are
done, as they will
continue
to
cook
from
residual heat.

WHEN JENNIFER ANISTON

announced the end of their

insisted they were ?two best
friends? who would continue
their ?cherished friendship?.
But fast forward three months
and Jen has been quizzing pal
SELENA GOMEZ over her growing
bond with the actor after the pair
were seen hanging out together in
Los Angeles.
I can reveal the Friends actress
called Selena to ask what was
going on after rumours swirled
online that they were dating. It
wasn?t a welcome conversation for
singer Selena, who was left upset.
A source close to Selena said:
?Jennifer called her to ask why
she had been hanging
out
with
Justin,
because
she
felt
betrayed.
?She
has
been
close to Selena for a
few years and has
taken her under
her wing. But Jen
has clearly been offended, which
really affected Selena.?
Selena
made
a
surprise
appearance at best friend TAYLOR
SWIFT?s gig in LA on Saturday
and appeared to reference her
souring relationship with Jen when
talking about Tay on stage.
The Wolves singer said: ?She
has been one of my best friends
because this person has never,
ever judged a single decision I?ve
made. She?s always met me where
I?ve been, she?s encouraged me
when I?ve had nothing to be
encouraged about.?
?Little cherub?
Selena, who split with JUSTIN
BIEBER again in March after they
had rekindled their relationship,
said of Jennifer in 2015: ?Honestly,
she?s
amazing . . . instantly
she?s,
like, inviting me to her house. She
has a pizza oven. We?ve made
pizzas at her house.?
The same year, Jen, married to
Justin for two years, said of
Selena: ?She?s just like a little
cherub that I feel like I wanna
take care of.?
Hopefully they can see what is
important and get back to that.

TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY?
Justify your purchase by
dividing the cost of your item by
the number of times you think
you will wear it. This will give
you an estimated cost-per-wear.
It can help you save money by
figuring out which pieces are
actually the most important to
you and can help stop that
impulse spending.

opinion.
COMPARE PRICES: Shopping
around before you buy can
save you tons of money, as it
helps you find the cheapest
option for something you already
want to buy.
The ShopSavvy app is a
handy companion which shows
you instant price comparisons
for in-store or online purchases.
I like using the ShopStyle app
as you can search by price low-
&
high, which I often do to find
the best bargains.
RETURN UNWANTED ITEMS:
Always keep your receipts,
including e-receipts, to return
your unwanted purchases.
Why pay for something that
will sit in your wardrobe when
you could use that money for
something else?
I usually make a note in my
phone?s calendar of the last day
I can return an item. If you do
it afterwards, you will only be
offered an exchange ? throwing
money away.

Torment . . . Rachael
BBC girl

BBC host Rachael Bland
has revealed the moment
she told her husband her
breast cancer is incurable.
The 5 Live newsreader,
40, was out with her son,
two, when doctors called
with ?bad news?.
She said: ?I watched
my little Freddie innocently playing away in a
tyre in the barn and my
heart broke for him.
?I scooped him up and
dashed home and had to
break Steve?s heart with
the news that my cancer
was now metastatic and
therefore incurable.?
Rachael was diagnosed
in November 2016 before
undergoing
months
of
chemo and radiotherapy.
She will now trial a
new drug. Rachael said:
?I feel an odd sense of
pride I am one of fewer
than 150 people worldwide who will test it.?

FOUR cops were injured
during a brawl at the

They were attacked as
they went to arrest a
group of fans for an
alleged assault.
A man of 56 had been
beaten up during the gig
at the Poole Lighthouse
Theatre in Dorset.
The venue had been
staging a musical at the
same time Elvis impersonator Shawn Klush was
performing
in
another
part of the building.
Witnesses said a group
of Elvis fans had caused
trouble for most of the
night before the attack.
Two men aged 55 and
19 and two women aged
52 and 19 were arrested
on suspicion of assault.
All four have been
released under investigation as police inquiries
continue.

OF THE

NINE of the new plant breeds exhibited by The Sun
were in the top 20 chosen by judges, beating 38
other competitors.
Peter has taken the top spot for the second time
in a row, winning the prize three times in total.
The winning plant is hydrangea Runaway Bride and
Peter said: ?It is rather special, with hundreds of
flowers on every branch, right along the length of
the stem. The thing that influenced the judges was
its changing character. It flowers right through the
summer, so you definitely get your money?s worth.?

OUR silver gilt medal-winning display featured acorn
seedlings grown by schoolchildren and Peter said:
?A school gathered acorns from the playground, put
them in a moist bag and when they started to grow,
took them inside to pot them up.
?Initially the children will outgrow the trees, but
soon the trees will outgrow them. When they are in
their 30s they can come back to see their tree.?
We also displayed potatoes grown by more than
16,000 schools nationwide for The Sun?s Grow Your

The floral beauty, which came

which featured a host of new plant
breeds as well as potatoes, mint
and acorn seedlings grown by
schoolchildren.
They had been encouraged to
plant mint shoots or cuttings in
teapots by The Sun?s gardening
column as part of a drive to get
youngsters interested in gardening.
Many of the pots were featured
at the show after a social media
request led to more than 100 being
sent to schools nationwide.
Peter said: ?Some of the teapots
have excellent stories.
?A brown one was bought in 1918
to make a fresh pot of tea for a
soldier on his return from World
War One. But he didn?t come back,
so it stood empty on the mantle
for three generations ? and they
have now given it to a school.
?There is another from the first
Little Chef, which opened in
Reading, and one which a soldier
stole from the NAAFI during
World War Two.
?He filled it with cider and took
it back to barracks to celebrate the
end of the war.
?We have one which came off
the top of a musical box and plays
Polly Put The Kettle On.
?There are ornate ones with
Victorian decorations down to big
aluminium pots.?

Peter
attended
the
Chelsea
Flower Show for the first time in
1952 and started exhibiting in the
1960s. The Sun has had an exhibit
at the show for 20 years, the only
newspaper to do so.
Peter said: ?It is a busy show ?
I work from four in the morning
until ten at night ? but it is
worth it.
?I am pleased that we have hundreds of schoolchildren who are
linked to gardening and to our
display at this year?s flower show.

When Danny refused to hand
over his Rolex he was shot at,
chased, and knifed to death.
Louis Mably, prosecuting, told
jurors: ?These men were armed
looking for watches to rob.
They were not going to let
anyone stand in their way.
?It?s clear they were acting
together. They arrived together,
confronted him together and
were both armed but it?s only
Bailey-Mascoll on trial today.?
Danny suffered stab wounds
to his neck and chest in the
12.15am attack on July 15 last
year and died at the scene.
After the incident, captured
on CCTV, his killers fled. But a
passer-by noted the licence
plate of their moped, which
was linked to a string of
similar robberies in the area.
Bailey-Mascoll, of no fixed
address, denies murder, possession of a firearm, possession of
an imitation firearm and robbery. The trial continues.

LOVE ISLAND SMOKERS SENT TO ?HUT?
EASTENDERS was so
disappointing around 18
months ago that rival soap
Corrie started referring to it
as Deadenders.
But a change in the top
brass, with John Yorke,
above, coming in to replace
the divisive Sean O?Connor,
has made it turn a corner.
He initially signed a threemonth deal at the soap, but
will now be staying for an
extended period.
A source said: ?John has
agreed to stay a bit longer and
has signed an extension on
his contract to see at least the
rest of the year out.?
John, whose first stint on
the show saw him introduce
families such as the Slaters
and work on the Who Shot
Phil? storyline, is certainly
more popular than his
predecessor among the cast.
JAKE WOOD, who plays
Max, said: ?If you look back at
the history of the show he has
come out with some of the
best storylines. He?s a master
of his craft, I?ve had about six
bosses and he?s the best.?
Someone?s angling for a
pay rise.

IN last year?s Love Island
more sparks flew on the
smoking terrace than in the
bedroom ? drawing a raft
of complaints from viewers.
So this year ITV has taken
decisive action by banning fags
in both the villa and garden.
I?m told that when contestants
want a cig they?ll have to ask a
producer who will take them to
a designated smoking shelter
away from the villa. And as if
having to sit in a bus stop-style
hut wasn?t bad enough, they will
have to do it alone.
A TV source said: ?Last year
there were more viewer complaints about the amount of
smoking than anything else.
?It did feel like someone had
a fag in their hand constantly
last series, so hopefully viewers
will notice the difference.?
But smokers will still be
filmed, as producers hope to

like last year when Dom Lever
stormed out of the villa after
rumours spread that his girlfriend Jess Shears had done the
dirty on him with ?Muggy? Mike
Thalassitis.
An ITV spokesman last night
confirmed: ?There will be no
smoking within the Love Island
villa or the main villa garden.?
Viewers can breathe a big,
clean, smoke-free sigh of relief.

Torn between
my two lovers
Dear Deidre
TWO women I have been
meeting for sex have found
out about each other.
I have denied it all but I?m not
sure how long I can keep getting
away with this.
One approached me through a
friend on Facebook. We started
chatting and she assumed I would
be interested in her.
She?s 26 and I?m 29. I didn?t pay
much attention because I had a
girlfriend, who?s 28.
I did talk to her but I never
gave her the come-on. Cheating
was never in my remit.
My girlfriend was recently given
a promotion. She works for a hotel
chain and her new job involved a
secondment to America for six
months. We arranged that I?d fly
over for a holiday and we Skyped
most weekends.
I went out with some mates one
night and I ran into the girl who
had messaged me. She looked
incredible in person. All my
friends were looking at me and
when she walked away they all
said: ?You?re punching, mate.?
I couldn?t stop thinking about
topic4today
THE G-spot is either seen as
the ultimate sexual pleasure
for women or dismissed as
irrelevant. The truth lies in
between ? as my e-leaflet

her when I went home. I messaged
her and she came over.
She pushed herself against me
when she got inside my flat and I
couldn?t resist her. She looked sexy
in her dress and even more sexy
out of it.
We had sex on the stairs, on the
landing and then in my bed.
I continued seeing her. I told her
I had a girlfriend but implied it
was over. I distanced myself from
my girlfriend even when I visited
her. She was upset and confused
but I admitted nothing.
I picked up with the other girl
when I returned home but then
my girlfriend flew back for Easter.
I couldn?t bear to think of her
on her own so I called her and
went over. We ended up sleeping
together like old times.
She found out about the other
girl when a message came in on
my phone. I tried to deny it but
she obviously doesn?t believe me.
She says she can?t live without
me. Now she is back in New York
but will be home next month.
I love both of these women but I
know I can?t continue like this.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: No, you can?t. Do
you really love both of them?
How much is the pull of your new girl
based on lust? Sexy looks and
behaviour can be very alluring but can
you see yourself with her long-term?
Long-distance love can be a strain
on willpower but it means something
that you felt so much for your girlfriend
that you had to go over when she was
home alone.
Summon up the determination to
stop seeing the other girl until your
girlfriend comes home. Then see if
that relationship works once you are
back together. My e-leaflet Cheating ?
Can You Get Over It? can help.
If it doesn?t, then at least you will
know you tried.
Dear Deidre
I FOUND out my boyfriend
had also been seeing two
other girls after he was killed

our relationship developed. It
was short and intense. He
said I was the only one.

Dear Deidre
AFTER I begged and pleaded
with my wife, she finally had
sex with me ? last August. We
haven?t had it since.
She has no interest in sex
and it leaves me frustrated.
We are both 45 and have
been married for 20 years. I
have never cheated but I do
think about going to see an
escort out of desperation.
I?m a considerate lover but
she?s been brought up with a
lot of shame and can?t let go
sexually. How can I help her?

Dear Deidre
THE GIRL I?M
WITH IS JUST
A FRIEND,
FELICITY,
HONESTLY. BUT
YOU?RE RIGHT,
IT?S RUDE TO
IGNORE HER.
TAKE CARE, OK?
I SOMETIMES wish my mum
wasn?t around because she
takes up all my free time. I
know that?s terrible but my
husband is fed up with it, too.
I?m 38 and we have a son
of 15. Mum is 70 and has
dementia. My sister lives with
Mum as her full-time carer
but goes to her caravan at
weekends for a break and
assumes I?ll step in, though I
work full-time.
My son does triathlons and
I can?t go to watch. I had a
hospital appointment last
Friday afternoon but my
sister said: ?You?ll have to
cancel it.? I can?t get another
appointment for six months.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Caring for
anyone with dementia can
feel draining ? even a muchloved parent.
Your sister probably
envies you, your job and
family life, but that hospital
appointment could have
been kept with a bit of
goodwill. Talk to her about a
fallback plan. Some nursing
homes locally may offer
respite care and it can make
a transition into full-time
residential care easier if it is
needed later.
Talk it over with Dementia

0 DEIDRE SAYS: Seeing an
escort is no answer. Tell your
wife you love her and sex is a
way of expressing this
physically, but the pleasure
needs to be mutual.
Giving each other a
massage can be a nonthreatening way to enjoy
some relaxing intimacy as a
good starting point.

IS CRISIS
PUSHING
HER BACK
TO EX?
Dear Deidre
MY girlfriend caught me
checking her phone and it
caused an almighty row. I?m
scared she?ll dump me.
I?m 35 and she?s 32. When
we met, she already had a
child ? and just a few dates
into our relationship, she got
pregnant again.
We tried to make it work for
our son?s sake but it was a
case of too much, too soon.
I kept in touch because of
our child. Then we seemed to
click again. We?d get
together most weekends,
have a laugh and have
amazing sex.
Her nan has only weeks to
live and now she?s pushing
me away, having contact
more with her eldest child?s
dad, which is why I checked
her texts. I think she wants to
get back with him but I don?t
want to lose her.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Snooping
won?t help. Tell her you love
her and want this to work.
Ask how you could be most
helpful through her family
crisis, such as looking after
the children so she is free to
be with her grandma.
See how things look in a
month. If they don?t work
out, focus on maintaining a
good relationship with your
son. Families Need Fathers

If you?re swimming or being very
active in hot weather, you need a
sunscreen that is extra-resistant
to water and sweat. Look for
lightweight or gel formulas which
should feel fresher when you
perspire. After swimming or
towelling off, always reapply.

BEACH
Always invest in a new sunscreen
for your summer holiday. With a
shelf-life of 12-18 months, using
last year?s bottle could leave you
vulnerable to burning. Apply SPF
liberally. Use a teaspoon of
cream per limb and top up
regularly, especially after
swimming or sweating. Always
protect your skin in the sun ?
even at the end of the day.

?SEXTING IS NORMAL
FOR ME, I WONT STOP?
JAMES, 17, from Northern
Ireland, felt almost suicidal
when his ?sexts? were shared.
But that will not stop him doing it
again. James ? not his real
name, and picture below posed
by a model ? says:
Sexting is pretty
normal at my
age. My friends
and I talk openly
about our
experiences.
You do
sometimes get
a negative
reaction to
something you
send, like people
saying they?ve
?seen bigger?.
It?s embarrassing but it
doesn?t bother me enough to
stop. My first experience of
sexting was with a girlfriend
when I was 16. She suggested
it as a way to keep in touch
when we were apart for a few
weeks. We started by sending
sexual texts, then it progressed
6
to pictures, voice notes and
short videos.
There are definitely risks
involved. Someone saw a video
message I had sent to a
previous girlfriend, took a
screenshot and posted it
online. They called me

I was devastated
and, to be honest,
almost suicidal. I
got the picture
taken down
eventually but
by that stage
people had
?unfriended? me
and the damage
was done.
I would say that if
someone is pressuring
you to send something you?re
not comfortable with, the best
thing to do is to cut off contact
with them.
If you?re worried, don?t keep it
to yourself and suffer in silence,
there is always someone who

HELP FOR
PARENTS
PSYCHOLOGIST Dr Linda
Papadopoulos, an Internet
Matters ambassador, says:
?Parents should look out for a
change of behaviour in their kids.
A child who was boisterous may
suddenly become withdrawn, or
a quiet one could get aggressive.
?Whereas once your son or
daughter might have checked
the phone in front of you, now
they go into their room to do it.
Or, if they ditch their phone for
long periods, leaving it to charge
in another room, that could be a
sign something has gone wrong.
?Children want us to impose
some kind of digital control.
?We wouldn?t let them eat as
much chocolate as they like or
stay up until 3am, so it feels
weird to kids when we let them
do what they like on their
devices. It is OK to look at your
child?s phone.
?But you need to make it clear
you won?t cut them off from their
friends if something goes wrong
? otherwise they might not tell
you about bullying.?

AGAINST DANGERS OF SOCIAL MEDIA
BULLIES and predators reaching into kids?
bedrooms via smart phones and tablets is
the modern parent?s nightmare. The number
of children having counselling for
cyberbullying has more than doubled in
five years.
And apps connecting kids to strangers
makes them easy prey for perverts, with an
NSPCC study revealing that children are
most at risk of being groomed when using
Facebook apps.
But while many adults believe youngsters
do not want them to pry into their lives on
social media, the truth is that they secretly
want digital protection.
Research by online magazine Internet
Matters shows seven out of ten teenagers
want their parents to set filters on their
devices. Yet few parents do this. New apps
can alert parents if a child shares X-rated
photos or aggressive messaging. And there
are plans to force digital giants such as
Facebook and Google, to recognise the
rights of under-18s online.
Today, GRANT ROLLINGS highlights the
problem, outlines the latest apps and looks
at how you can keep kids safe online.
Help your kids

LUNA BANKS, 23, and her
sister Sasha, 11, have both
been victims of abuse by
cyberbullies.
Now the determined pair, from
Ellesmere
Port,
Cheshire,
have
produced a powerful series of
photographs with the words used by
bullies written on Sasha?s face.
Luna says: ?In my teens I was a size 20
and cyberbullies started by messaging me
on Facebook calling me a fat pig, ugly
and disgusting. It went on for almost
three years.
?When the cyberbullies attack it?s like a
feeding frenzy. I was in constant tears
and often frightened to leave the house. I
didn?t know who was responsible for the
attacks and didn?t trust anyone.
?I wasn?t eating and went from a size
20 to a size 10 simply because of a
stress-induced eating disorder. I am still
recovering from what they did to me.
?When Sasha was targeted I knew I
had to lead from the front.
?She?s been cyberbullied for more than
two years because of her success in
pageants.
?Together we collected all the names
she?s been called and wrote them on her
face. We did a series of photos for her to

to cyberbullying.?
Sasha says: ?I have been called a freak,
a midget, ugly, a slut and a bitch. I have
been teased because I wear a hearing aid.
?It was devastating. I started doing
pageants to raise money for charities and
build up my confidence.
?As part of the pageants I do modelling
and when I put up pictures to show my
mates, the cyberbullies were nasty.
?We?ve tried reporting these posts but
by the time the social media operator
acts, the fake accounts are shut down and
others open up.
?I am so lucky I have Mum and Luna
to help me. Luna checks my phone and
feeds before I see them in the morning.
?If a bully sends a message I send it to
spam. I don?t try to talk to them. We
never
engage
with
the
cyberbullies
because that?s what they want.?
5 APPS THAT FILTER OUT HARM
Richard Pursey, inset, says: ?Our app
learns patterns in texts such as time
of day, types of emojis and speed
of message exchange. Rapid
exchange indicates sexual heatingup or aggressive behaviour.?
We tested out SafeToNet and
other parental control apps, rating
them out of five.
IT has long been argued that tech
firms could use algorithms to weed
out
predators
and
abusive
messages. Now a British start-up
has created an app using artificial
intelligence to do just that.
SafeToNet filter assesses what is
harmful and sends a warning before
any damage is done. Developer
Family Time
(�.10 a year)
THIS allows you to
block certain apps and
limit the amount of
screen time for users,
and it will warn you about
contact from unwanted
people.
But it has no content
filter, so children will
be able to view porn
and
send
sexual
messages.
And you can only
look at web history on
Android devices.

Qustodio

IT tells you what app your
child is using and when,
where and for how long. It
will also show you which
words

been
searched for and offers a

But while it blocks
searches for ?porn? or
?topless? you can still log
on to Facebook 18-plus
sites that show seminudity.

THE premium service lets

social media site to
monitor Instagram.

parents an email as
soon as their child tries
to log on to a
questionable site. The
system is effective at
monitoring
internet
browsing and prevents
a child seeing anything

It also does a good
job on videos. Apps
and texts are a blind

HOW can Samantha Markle say
that Meghan?s mother ?hogged the

Doria Ragland was dignified

I hope when he is well enough,
Thomas Markle will reunite with
Meghan and meet Harry. But
Samantha?s opinion of our Royal

rift between the sisters.

The strength of purpose in your chart will help you add action to
decisions and give you certainty where before you felt unsure.
The moon also adds an ability to see life from other points of
view. This is a career game-changer. Love has an unexpected
extra helping of passion. Single? Leo ?D? could be The One.
Jupiter is still rewinding in your partnership chart and if you feel
you could have loved each other better, this is the day to prove
it. If you prefer to meet someone new, the hottest love-finding
location is a shoe shop. Sharp-thinking Mercury builds a level
of logic that turns vague ideas into good business bets.
You have a glow of generosity and energy that is irresistible to
friends and family. Remember to save plenty of time for your
own projects as you could get some awesome results. Planet
action in the mysterious twelfth zone of your chart helps you
to understand what goes on behind a lover?s smiles.
Natural passion power you have deserves to be used, so reach
out and make emotional connections. If you have more
questions than answers in a relationship, this can change. But
if you are single, making the first move is simple, it is the next
one that is complicated. Luck calls at door number 119.
Super-strong Saturn and the sun pull in different directions in
your home and family zone. This only serves to show the two
very different changes you want to make are right. Make a
career based on happiness first, money second, and you?ll
taste true success ? but not in the way that you would expect.
Your new role as ideas generator, problem solver and general
boss of home and family life may not be the one you would have
chosen, yet you do it excellently. Neptune sails through your
relationship zone and someone you weren?t sure of turns out to
be perfect. Luck lingers on a lottery ticket you need to check.
The secret part of your chart gleams with new information and
you discover you have the knowledge and skills that need to be
shared with a wider audience. This makes you a valuable
addition to any team, even if you start off quietly. If you start the
day single, your new love has an ultra glamorous lifestyle.
Mystery planet Pluto brings intriguing family news and money
from unexpected faces and places. Ambitious plans could
suddenly take off. Your passion profile is confident and bold so
you?re ready to say yes to the most exciting romance. Already
involved? Give your relationship time to grow strong.
Luck-bringer Jupiter is reversing through your chart and you
have an exciting decision to make when someone you miss
walks back into your life. Second tries in written and practical
tests will go well so don?t let pride stop you from trying. At
home, what at first seems like an empty promise turns real.
Cool-thinking Mercury is in charge of your love life so instead of
rushing into romance, you devise a strategy that really works.
Already involved? A partner reveals exciting plans for the two of
you. A travel moon will keep you close at heart to relatives
working in New Zealand. Prizes link to a fast action sport.
You have many dreams and schemes linked to a family?s future,
now Mercury helps shape them into practical words, plus the
kind of forward-planning that impresses outsiders. With Venus
at the top of your chart, you can be a winner in love. Your best
chance of winning prizes is linked to an online music quiz.
By really thinking about things, you balance between what you
want and need to do, and recognise the demands of those
around you ? then find clear, friendly words. Pictures you take
when you go out, and the captions you write, could reveal a
depth of talent that you never even guessed you had.

PAY HIKES
HIT CARE
GROUPS
EXCLUSIVE
WAGE costs and inflation
have added to the pressure
on care home groups with
2,115 companies in financial distress ? up 27 per
cent year-on-year.
The figures for the first
quarter from insolvency
experts BEGBIES TRAYNOR
compare to 1,660 in 2017.
Julie Palmer, from the
firm, said: ?Wage costs are
always key for care homes.
It?s a difficult balance as
operators must have the
right mix of nursing staff
per resident to comply with
regulations. Specialist
agency or bank staff can
lift wages considerably.
?With increased costs
associated with the
National Living Wage and
inflation on utilities and
food, it?s no surprise the
sector is under strain.?
Other pressures on the
sector include cuts to
local authority fees. As a
result, available care home
places have been falling
since 2015 and currently
stand at about 465,000.
But properties with high
numbers of self-paying
residents are increasingly
attractive to investors.

TEMPLEGATE?S BEST BETS
SWOOP on BIRDS OF PREY (nap) in Kempton?s 7.25.
Paul Nicholls has done well with a small Flat team
recently and my fancy ran a promising race on his debut
for the stable over track and trip. He should be sharper.
Nicholls should also strike on more familiar territory
with SAN BENEDETO (4.15 Warwick, nb). He won a
Grade 1 at Aintree last spring but has been hampered by
soft ground. His Sandown second behind Altior is top form.
BAILARICO (3.55 Yarmouth, treble) won on his debut
for Warren Greatrex. There?s plenty of juice left in him.

WEST TESTT ENGLAND v
By JOHN
ETHERIDGE
HOW do you stop a
man like Cristiano
Ronaldo?
That is what Liverpool must do on
Saturday if they are
to grab the Champions League crown
from reigning champions Real Madrid.
Ron has scored
44 times in all competitions this term.
And the Portuguese either bagged
in real time or from
the penalty spot in
all three of Real?s
recent final wins.
Ronaldo is 8/11 to
score in Kiev with
Sun Bets.
The star is also
nicely priced at 9/2
with Sun Bets to
score in a Real win.
We are predicting
loads of entertainment and Ronaldo is
at 33/1 with Sun
Bets to score first
in a 3-2 Real win.
DIAMOND: Cristiano Ronaldo
to score against Liverpool is
8/11 with Sun Bets.
NEXT BEST: Ronaldo to score
and Real Madrid to win is
priced at 9/2 with Sun Bets.
LONGSHOT: Ronaldo to score
first and Real Madrid to win 3-2
is 33/1 with Sun Bets.
18+ T&Cs apply.
Odds subject to change.

JAMES ANDERSON is slim,
fit and hoping to bowl for
England for at least two
more years.
His hair is brown once more,
his ambition still strong. A brief
flirtation with the peroxide bottle
is the only suggestion Anderson
might be approaching any sort
of crossroads.
He joked: ?Mid-life crisis averted
. . . for the time being!?
Anderson has been bowling superbly
for years and better than ever during
the past 12 months, combining swing,
seam and still decent pace.
The world?s best batsmen will tell
you he remains a nightmare to face 15
years after his Test debut ? quicker
than you think, the master of skill
and deception and constantly in your
face, chirping away.
He took 39 wickets at 14 apiece for
England last summer and there is no
reason to believe there will not be
another decent harvest against Pakistan
and India in the coming weeks.
Anderson is loving his cricket and
he wants to keep playing until his
body gives up.
Long-standing shoulder and ankle
issues
required
injections
three
weeks ago and he manages his
workload. Bowling quick is bloody
hard work but, generally, he is in
terrific shape.
And the assumption held by many,
that he will retire after the 2019 Ashes
series, is wrong ? Anderson would
like nothing more than to continue
playing for England into his late 30s.
Now 35, Anderson said: ?As long as
the body feels OK, I?m enjoying
playing, helping the team improve and
taking wickets, I?ll keep going.
?I?ve spoken to people who have
retired once they lost the enjoyment
of a long day in the field or going to
the gym. If I lose that, it?s time to go.
?I?ve spoken to guys like Freddie
Flintoff, who retired through injury,
and you can tell how much he misses
the game. The craic and the camaraderie. Swanny says the same.
?You spend so much time with people,
you do get really close, have that
family feel. So I want to keep hold of
that as long as possible.?
Anderson has 531 Test wickets, fifth
on the all-time list and second only to
Glenn McGrath among quick bowlers.
He was easily England?s best bowler
during the 4-0 Ashes hammering last
winter and he enters the First Test
against Pakistan tomorrow ten short
of becoming the first bowler to take
100 Test wickets at Lord?s.
Anderson added: ?I?m delighted with
the way I?m bowling, I can?t remember
being this consistent. I?m taking wickets
in most games and I keep touching
wood that injuries stay away.
?For me, what works is keeping
training short but with high intensity
and then recovering well. Physio,
massage, icing, things like that.
?The shoulder and ankle have been
niggly concerns for a few years so I
had a couple of jabs this month. They
should see me through the summer.
?You learn as you get older. I bowl
quite a bit but I might wake up and
think, ?Actually, I don?t need to bowl
today.? So short and sharp for me and
saving the best stuff for matches.
?Another thing is I?m better able
these days to concentrate on the next
game. In the past, if I got a five-for,
I?d think I?d got it sussed and take
my eye off the ball.
?I know my game really well and
I?m relatively comfortable in most
situations. I believe I can still take
wickets on most pitches even though I
might not have the pace I used to.
?I don?t see why I couldn?t go
beyond next year?s Ashes, but I don?t
want to look too far ahead. It would
be an amazing series to play in, with
a Test at Old Trafford as well. I?m
Retire? I want
to keep going
on...and on...
JAMES ANDERSON
certainly not thinking I?ll finish after
that series. I?m open-minded. You just
don?t know.
?I might get to the end of this Pakistan
series and think I cannot go on.
?Or I might get to the end of the
Ashes in 2019 and feel as fresh as I?ve
ever felt and want to carry on for
another two years.?
JAMES . . . ON HIS HAIR
?I thought it was a long time since
I?d done something with my hair. I had
it red many years ago and a bit of
blond every now and again.
?I wanted a grey/silver colour, but it
turned out more dirty blond.
?Then I bowled poorly for Lancashire
against Somerset ? I thought it must
be the hair! So I dyed it back to dark
brown and bowled better in the next
game. I?ll let it grow out now.?
. . . ON ED SMITH
?I actually played in all three of Ed
Smith?s Tests back in 2003.
?So I know him a little from that
and listening to him as a commentator
on Test Match Special.
?He explained the reasons for his
selections for the First Test very clearly.
As players, we certainly want that.
?Why are you playing? Why have you
been dropped? What is your role?
What do you need to do to get back?
That clarity is crucial.?
. . . ON SANDPAPERGATE
?I?ve never heard of teams taking
sandpaper onto the field to scuff the
ball. As a bowler, the ball is your tool.
It?s how I earn a living.
?If one of the batsmen was doing
something to the ball, I?d be furious. It
would be like me cutting off an inch
from his bat handle.
?When the ball comes back to me, I
look at it between every delivery. I?d
have thought it would be obvious if
someone had been sandpapering it.?
. . . ON 100-BALL COMP
?It?s been a big talking point
in
the
dressing
rooms.
Opinion is split.
?Jonny
Bairstow,
the
England
PCA
rep,
gathered
players?
thoughts
from
our
WhatsApp group.
?Some asked if we
should look at the
success
of
other
T20s around the
world rather than
inventing this new
game?
?Some
others
thought
we
should give it a
go.
?We could
do with more
info
before
we jump to
any
conclusions.?

BATTING Right-hand
FIRST-CLASS DEBUT
Somerset v Pakistan,July 3-5, 2016
Now he wants to gorge on
Pakistan batsmen.
Bess will tomorrow become
the youngest specialist spinner
to play for England since
1931 when he makes his
debut in the First
Test at Lord?s.
The 20-year-old
is chatty, confident
and convinced he
will not freeze on
the big occasion.
But his only experience of Lord?s is as
a spectator.
Bess
explained:
?I
was
12th
man
when
Somerset played here last
year and really tucked into
the lunches. I put on a bit
during those few days!
?It was amazing ? my
first time properly in
London so I was a bit
of a tourist as well.?
When asked if he
feels ready for the
step up, Bess said:
?Of course. There?s a
lot of chat about me
having played only 16 first-class
matches but I see this as a
great opportunity.
?We?re at Lord?s and hopefully I?m going to make my
Test debut. You?ve got to enjoy
it, haven?t you??

Manuel Pellegrini has a wellfounded reputation for being
rather dull in the flesh.
But boring is probably just
what the Hammers need for a
few years to try to restore their
reputation in English football.
Whatever joint-chairman David
Sullivan may think, last season
was possibly the craziest in the
club?s 123-year history.

get people talking about the
football and not events off the

Karren Brady stepped in and
took over West Ham when the
club was in a financial mess.
To go back in time through
the previous half-dozen bosses
would take you to 1989 and the
seismic sacking of John Lyall
after 15 years in charge.
Too much has changed too
soon. As well as the controversial move from Upton Park to
the unloved London Stadium,
there has been a major rebranding, a move to a new training
ground and a step away from
the old core values. At a club
steeped in working-class custom,
rapid change does not always go
down well with supporters.
Pellegrini wants four or five
new players ? almost half a
team. In essence, the existing
squad should find life in the
Premier League comfortable.
But the goings-on around them
make it difficult to settle and
they have hugely underachieved.
Up front West Ham are not
badly off. The defence is the key
area to get stuck into.

Joe Hart?s �0,000-a-week loan

The season was also overshadowed by racism within the management, winger Arthur Masuaku?s
ban for spitting and Andy Carroll
storming off in a hissy fit.
There were fans fighting players and each other, protests
against the board and a relegation battle. It made EastEnders

Pellegrini has a reputation for
producing entertaining teams. In

was enough for a club umbilically attached to its fans.

Unai Emery?s appointment as Champions
For the previous couple of weeks,

Mikel Arteta had looked nailed-on to
Easy to write off the Basque coach
as an underwhelming B-list candidate.
As the man who somehow failed to
win the French title in his first season
at filthy-rich Paris Saint-Germain.
The man who oversaw the greatest
capitulation in Champions League
history when PSG blew a 4-0 first-leg
lead to lose to Barcelona last term.
And a man whose record in Europe?s
elite club competition is as poor as
Arsene Wenger?s.
Yet all that would be to overlook the
parlous state of Arsenal just now.
This is a club outside the Champions
League, with an imbalanced squad
unfit for the purpose of breaking back
into the top four and without the
transfer budget to change matters.
Arsenal lack world-class players in
goal, in defence and in central midfield.
The three current squad members
who could be placed in that bracket ?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh
Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil ? are all
tied to long-term deals but will all be
29 when next season kicks off.
So Arsenal really ought to count
themselves lucky to have attracted a
manager as good as Emery.
A man who, while at Sevilla, won
three successive Europa Leagues ?
the competition which represents the
succeed Wenger at the Emirates.
As Arsenal tried to smooth the path
for Arteta?s anointment, the party line
was that he was a perfect fit for the
?young head coach? model they?d
decided to go with.
And every time you read ?young
head coach?, you found yourself thinking ?cheap head coach? and ?compliant
head coach?.
A head coach who?d kowtow to head
of recruitment Sven Mislintat and head
of football relations (whatever that
means) Raul Sanllehi, two silent operators who could walk down Islington?s

sway on transfers.
But his CV will make his views
harder to ignore than those of Arteta,
who would have been a rookie boss
always grateful for his job.
The ex-midfielder?s lack of popularity
in the Arsenal dressing room may
also have counted against him ? but
essentially the Arteta project was
ditched because chief executive Ivan
Gazidis feared a major fans? backlash.
Arteta was a decent Arsenal player
but he was no Patrick Vieira, another
inexperienced
managerial
candidate
but an easier sell, given his
legendary status.
In
the
end,
though,
Arsenal shredded the idea
of a ?bold? appointment, as
trailed
by
Gazidis
when
Wenger?s
exit
was
announced. They also
ditched the idea of a
sentimental approach.
And as unfashionable as it may sound,
Arsenal ought to be
applauded for backing away from a
reckless gamble.
After 22 years of
Wenger?s
benign
dictatorship, this is
bound
to
be
a
difficult transition. It is a situation that
calls for a safe pair of hands, with
ample experience.
Take away top-class candidates such
as Max Allegri and Luis Enrique ?
who would have demanded bigger
salaries and budgets ? and Emery is
pretty much as good as it gets.
The new manager?s stock is unusually low after he failed to make a
Champions League breakthrough with
PSG, despite a domestic Treble.
And Emery?s uncertain grasp of
English will probably add to initial
suggestions he is not the right man.
But there is a tendency to lazily
write off any foreign manager who
arrives in the Premier League without
having already established himself as a
household name here.
That was true of Mauricio Pochettino,
Claudio Ranieri, Marco Silva and
Wenger himself. It turned out they all
knew what they were doing.
Emery, 46, is a gifted and thorough
coach ? exactly what Arsenal need if
individual players are to be improved;
something which has rarely happened
there over the past decade.
His arrival offers no guarantees of a
return to the glory days and it will not
set too many pulses racing either. But
fortune doesn?t always favour the brave.
Emery (left with Wenger) is a capable, sensible and reliable option.
And, right now, Arsenal could do a
lot worse than that.

now Emery aims to
impress at Arsenal
By GRAEME BRYCE
UNAI EMERY was not tipped as the new Arsene
Wenger when he emerged as one of the hottest young
managers in Spain a decade ago.
Instead he was dubbed the ?New Mourinho? ? and hated it!
The comparison with the now-Manchester United boss was an
easy one to make . . . but lazy.
Like Jose Mourinho, Emery, 46, was the son of a professional
goalkeeper, while grandfather Antonio also donned the gloves.
Like Mourinho, Emery did not enjoy a stellar playing
career, managing just five La Liga appearances for Real
Sociedad before dropping into Spain?s Segunda Division
where he spent the rest of his
playing days as a journeyman
midfielder.
Emery took to management
when a knee injury forced
him to retire at 32, mastering
his trade in the lower ranks
before progressing to become
manager of Valencia aged 36.
By the time I crossed paths
with Arsenal?s new boss two
years later ? before Valencia?s
2010 Champions League clash
with Rangers ? his style, passion and expert handling of
the media had him neatly stereo-typed as Mourinho Mk II.

guard shrugged and my friend said, ?He is

Benitez was eventually let back into the
bash where he stayed celebrating until
?six or seven? in the morning.
The teetotal manager did not have a
single drink but he would have found it
difficult to sleep anyway given what had
just happened in the Ataturk Stadium.
It barely needs repeating but Liverpool
trailed AC Milan 3-0 at half-time of the
final, with Paolo Maldini scoring in the
first minute, then Hernan Crespo adding a
brace just before the break.
Benitez said: ?When we conceded the
second goal, I was thinking about what I
had to say at half-time.
?I had to give a speech in English and
my English then was not so good.
?I was thinking about what I would
say in English to motivate the players
because it?s not the same as saying something in Spanish. Speaking English you
lose something in translation.
?So I was making my notes and then
we conceded a third.
?In the end I said, ?If we score a goal we
are back in the game, nothing to lose, for
45 minutes we have to do our best?.
?I also told the fitness coach or the
assistant to be sure that Didi Hamann
was ready because we will play with three
at the back.?
What happened next is the stuff of
legend as Liverpool, largely thanks to
Benitez?s tactical change, staged a remarkable recovery.
They were level after an hour thanks
to goals from skipper Steven Gerrard,
Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso.
And after a goalless extra-time, the
match went to penalties and Benitez?s boys
triumphed when Jerzy Dudek saved
Andriy Shevchenko?s spot-kick.

knew who was taking the penalties and
where they were taking the penalties. We
had done a lot of work on that.
?We were actually unlucky at the start
of the game because we lost Harry
Kewell early to injury and we had to
change everything. ?And we were much
better than them in extra-time.
?When we changed to three at the back
and put Hamann in the middle, we were
much better than them, we had control of
the game.
?Player by player, AC Milan were the
best team in Europe by miles, nobody
could be better than them. But we were
better than them in this game.?
One of Benitez?s other over-riding memories of that famous night is a conversation he had with skipper Gerrard (right)
just moments after their shootout win.
The Liverpool skipper had been linked
with a summer switch to Chelsea, and
Rafa said: ?Obviously we were celebrating
but I remember Stevie talking to my
assistant.
?He said, ?Now you have to make me
the best midfielder in the world?, so he
had the clear belief he could improve and
we could improve him.?
It was not until the following day?s
open-top bus parade through Liverpool
that the magnitude of what had just
happened really hit Benitez.
But at the time he was more worried
about being hit by a tree!
Benitez admitted: ?I was really proud of
what they?d achieved but you do not
realise straight away what it means.
?You realise after, when you go to the
city and see the fans.
?I remember we were on top of the
double-decker and it was going really fast
and you could see the trees.
?The players were like, ?Woah?, ducking.
We had to say, ?slow down!?.? Even now,
Benitez ? whose Kop side faced AC
Milan again in the 2007 final but lost
2-1 ? is stopped in the streets by
Liverpool fans who want to talk
about Istanbul.
Rafa said: ?I always say
Istanbul will be the most
emotional final ever because
of the way we won, the way
we came back.
?You find Liverpool fans
everywhere and they will
always want to talk about
Istanbul.
?At my home I must have
watched hundreds of programmes on Istanbul.
?Some of the players that
were there, you don?t remember
who they are, where they are.
But they were there, they are in
the picture.
?It was massive for everyone.?

LIVERPOOL sensationally won the
50th European Cup final in the
greatest comeback in the history
of the competition.
Trailing 3-0 at half-time, the
Mersey giants came back to 3-3
and then won the final on penalties.
Rafa Benitez?s battlers were
seemingly out on their feet when
they walked down the tunnel at
the break three goals in arrears.
They came out for the second
half like men possessed.
Liverpool scored three times in
the space of five minutes to
transform a match which was
seemingly dead.
Captain fantastic Steven Gerrard
headed in a cross from John Arne
Riise. Vladimir Smicer then netted
a stinger of a second from 25
yards.
And on 59 minutes, Gennaro
Gattuso?s tug on Gerrard?s sleeve
sent the midfield ace sprawling.
Xabi Alonso?s spot-kick was saved
by Dida but the Spaniard slammed
the rebound high into the net.
In the dramatic shootout, Milan
blew their first two shots.
And when Andriy Shevchenko
stepped up, he knew he had to
score to keep Milan in it.
But Jerzy Dudek read his kick
perfectly, diving to his right to start
the Liverpool party.

Reds skipper Jordan Henderson leads the
Saturday night celebrations while Klopp
applies the bear hugs.
Yet no matter the outcome on Saturday
night, and no matter what heroes emerge,
as many as FIVE of them are liable to be
fighting for their places next season.
Henderson, his midfield partners James
Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum, defender
Dejan Lovren and goalkeeper Loris Karius
will all be under threat.
For Klopp has really only just begun the
work of turning Liverpool into a super
power once more.
And while the Kop would love to sing:
?We?ve won it six times?, the German will
remain tuned in to an altogether different
melody.
That will be about adding an extra beat
to his midfield and making his rearguard as
tight as a drum.
Triumph over Real would, for him, mark
only the end of the beginning.
For some of those charged with victory, it
may well be the beginning of the end.
Klopp?s plans are already in place to
strengthen and to supply more power to
support the only true untouchables in his
team
right
now:
Mo
Salah,
Roberto
Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Yet if he were to bring in Wilfried Zaha
from Crystal Palace even Mane might feel
the need to look over his shoulder when the
new campaign begins.

He will almost certainly make his
entrance alongside gifted playmaker Nabil
Fekir, whose �m move from Lyon is likely
t be confirmed next week.
to
Christian Pulisic, also on Manchester
City?s radar for his ball-playing talent, has
been
on Klopp?s hitlist for two years ever
b
since his former club Borussia Dortmund
turned
down �m for him.
t
He would have liked to land Jorginho
from
Napoli but the �m star is on his
f
way
to Manchester City.
w
But there is still Thomas Lemar. The
Monaco attacker is hoping Klopp follows up
on his interest in him from last year.
The Kop boss is also actively looking for
another centre-back, while a new goalkeeper
is a given with deposed No 1 Simon
k
Mignolet on his way.
Karius has the gloves right now but
Stoke?s Jack Butland and Tom Heaton of
Burnley are both available and the arrival
of either would put the German stopper
under
real pressure.
u
Unless Emre Can has a dramatic change
of heart and signs a new contract, Klopp
will
have to replace his fellow countryman,
w
who
is expected to join Juventus on a free.
w
There is also little question that, even
with
a fully fit squad, the Anfield manager
w
is
i light on numbers.
Yet the quest for him since he replaced
Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield hotseat 32
months
ago is to bridge a gap that spans 28
m
years
and make Liverpool champions of
y
England again.
He will have noted that the club never
capitalised on the 2005 Miracle of Istanbul
and European triumph No 5. Rafa Benitez
spent under �m that summer and did
later manage a second-placed finish in the
Premier League.
But within five years, much of them
punctuated by griping from Benitez over a
lack of investment by former American
owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett, the
Spaniard was gone and his side finished
seventh in the table.
Klopp has no intention of allowing history
to repeat itself, even if the situation opens
up the possibility in Ukraine.
That means, for instance, that Milner, 32,
is liable to become part of the back-up plan
despite the remarkable achievement of
creating nine assists en route to the
Champions League final.
More even than Saturday?s opponent
Cristiano Ronaldo of Real or his fellow
megastar, Barcelona?s Lionel Messi.
Henderson could follow his mentor Stevie
Gerrard in lifting the trophy this millennium and, no matter what, would remain
club captain next season.
But if push came to shove Klopp could
well start looking to Keita, who for sure has
been persuaded by the manager that he will
become a midfield mainstay.
There is also the unlucky Alex OxladeChamberlain, out until November with
cruciate knee ligament injuries but who
surely would have been facing Real instead
of Wijnaldum were he fit.
Lovren has improved by working alongside �m Virgil van Dijk but he is still
seen as an accident waiting to happen.
And while there is Joel Matip in the
background Klopp is looking to
create a centre-back pairing for
the ages.
Even if he does not find a
new one there is the prospect
of Joe Gomez, 20, ultimately
moving from the flanks into
what is considered to be his
best position.
Should Kiev turn into a
glorious night then every
member of the squad will
earn their place in the
European
folklore
of
Anfield.
But that will still not
earn them the guarantee of a place in next
season?s team.
Klopp, as he prepares to spend at
least
�0m
this
summer, is already
making sure of that.

SADIO MANE warned Real

goals in the Champions
League final.
The Liverpool striker
has struck 19 times this
season, but he intends to
reach the magic 20
figure in Kiev.
Senegal hotshot Mane,
26, said: ?I think more
goals are coming.
?As a striker, you would
love to score in every
game to help your team.?
The �million buy from
Southampton has been the
junior partner this season
in a formidable trio.
Mo Salah has 44 goals
while Roberto Firmino has
weighed in with 27 in all
competitions.
Mane added: ?I have
enjoyed playing alongside
these great players. They
make everything easier.
?But we always talk
about the front three.
Don?t forget it starts from
the guys behind. We do
everything together, this
is our power.?
The Spanish giants are
the clear favourites but
Mane is confident.
He said: ?It will not be
easy because we know
they have qualities.
?We respect them a lot,
but we have the players
and staff to beat any team
in the world.?

OUR MAN PHIL THOMAS
MEETS MAN UTD LEGEND
ALEX
STEPNEY
IF LIVERPOOL win their Champions
League battle with Real Madrid, it
will be a 13th European Cup for
English clubs.
The first came 50 years ago with
Manchester United?s memorable 4-1
Wembley win over Benfica.
PHIL THOMAS spoke to ALEX STEPNEY,
United?s keeper on an unforgettable
night, to get the inside track on
that triumph . . . and their incredible
journey to get there.
THE FINAL
IT HAD become the Holy
Grail at Manchester United
? and we knew time was
running out for Sir Matt
Busby to win it.
Everyone knew the story of
the Babes, how Sir Matt had
built this outstanding young
team . . . and how it had all
ended in tragedy at Munich.
This was ten years on and we
realised it could be the last chance
he would have because he wasn?t
getting any younger and City had
pipped us to the league that year.
But after we?d beaten Real Madrid
in the semi we really thought it
could be our year ? and when we
got the same dressing room England
had in 1966, it seemed to be written
that we would beat Benfica.
Even though it was a massive game,
all Sir Matt told us ? like always ?
was go out and enjoy ourselves.
He also told Nobby Stiles to mark
Eusebio like he did in the World
Cup semi-final ? and he did it for
86 minutes.
The first half wasn?t attractive but
Eusebio hit the bar with a free-kick
and I saved a couple from him.
Then Bobby Charlton scored with
a header ? when he did that you
knew you had a chance.
But Gracia equalised late on and
then came the moment everyone still
mentions to me.
They knocked one right through
the middle late on, I don?t know
where Nobby had got to but it
slowed down on the lush surface and
that gave me time to think.
As Eusebio got there, I thought
?He?s going to smash it? because he
always wanted to burst the net.
He smashed it, the ball flew at me
? and stuck.
I threw it out to Tony Dunne and
didn?t see Eusebio standing there
clapping me until I watched it back.
I just wanted to start an attack.
So it was extra-time but it was so
humid all the lads were shattered
and we didn?t have the huge staff
they do these days.
We had trainer Jack Crompton
and physio Ted Dalton rubbing
people?s legs.
But then Paddy Crerand says: ?If
you think we?re tired, look at them.?
That was the defining comment.
That was when we just all felt we
were going to do it. The funny thing
about the second goal was Johnny
STILES GURU . . . Nobby celebrates

POWERHOUSE . . . Eusebio shoots
Aston won a throw on the left and
gave it to Tony Dunne but he didn?t
want it and passed it to me.
I rolled it to Shay Brennan on the
right and he didn?t want it either
and gave it back again, so I had no
option but to kick it.
Brian Kidd won the flick-on,
George Best went round the keeper
and scored ? and that was it.
We were on the way and scored
two more from Kiddo and Bobby.
In the dressing room it was
madness ? champagne everywhere ?
but there is always a lull, maybe ten
seconds when it all goes quiet.
Shay, puffing away on a Senior
Service with a glass in his hand,
stood up and said: ?Remember, lads,
I started the move for our second.?
That was the characters we had.
No one spoke about Munich but
each and every one of us went to
Bobby, Sir Matt and Bill Foulkes.
There was a big reception inside
Wembley and England manager Sir
Alf Ramsey came up to me, Nobby
and Bobby and reminded us we had
a trip coming up.
He said: ?After your meal get to
bed because we?re leaving for West
Germany tomorrow and then on to
Italy for the Nations Cup.?
Bobby had already gone but me,

Nobby and our wives looked at
each other and said: ?What are we
going to do, we?ve just won the
European Cup??
There was no way we were going
back to the hotel for an early night.
Instead, we went to Danny La Rue?s
club and had a right few drinks.
The sad thing is that because of
England, we missed the homecoming and didn?t see any TV coverage.
By the time we came back from
Italy three weeks later it was all
over, so we never fully got to enjoy
the celebrations.
And I was sub in West Germany!
THE EARLY ROUNDS
WE PLAYED Hibernian in the first
round and had no trouble beating
them but in the second we played
Sarajevo and what a trek that was.
After Munich, United didn?t charter planes, so we took a scheduled
flight to Dubrovnik and then had
an eight-hour coach journey.
But it didn?t affect us too much,
because although they had a very
strong team, we got a goalless draw
and beat them 2-1 at home.
Then it was Poland?s Gornik
Zabrze and we won 2-0 at Old
Trafford. The second leg was in
front of 105,000 in Katowice. It was
HISTORY . . . Sir Matt con
gratulates Stepney
about -16, with six inches of
snow trampled down. The great
Wlodzimierz Lubanski scored with
about three minutes to go.
Keepers could only take four
steps with the ball then but it was
so slippy, when I caught a corner I
couldn?t stop and the ref gave a
free-kick. Lubanski scored and it
was all a bit frantic.
THE SEMI-FINAL
IT?S never easy against Real Madrid
and we edged the first leg 1-0
thanks to a goal from George Best.
But they slaughtered us at the
Bernabeu and we were lucky to be
only 3-1 down at half-time ? and
that was an own goal.
Sir Matt never swore and back in
the dressing room he just sat there
puffing his pipe and tutting.
We?re all thinking: ?He reckons
it?s over?, when he started laughing.
He asked us: ?What are you
doing? You?ve enjoyed yourself all
season, go and enjoy yourselves
now. It?s only 3-2 on aggregate.?
Amazingly, we turned it round.
David Sadler got one and then
Bill Foulkes ? who never scored ?
equalised to put us in the final.
Club captain Denis Law was
injured so Bobby had taken over
and it was unbelievable ? him and
Bill, two survivors from ?58, did so
much to get us there.
You do start thinking your name
is on it when that happens.
JOINING UNITED
I HAD won two promotions on the
trot in my three years at Millwall
when Ron Greenwood came in to
sign me for West Ham.
I?d joined Millwall for � in 1963
but found out Ron was going to
pay �,000 and thought I should
have some.
I wasn?t greedy, it was a very
reasonable amount I asked for.
Millwall said it wouldn?t be a
problem
and
promised
me
a
payment but then backed down and
that was that ? the deal was off.
The next thing, Tommy Docherty
came in to sign me for Chelsea.
I said no but he told me he?d
had a row with first-team keeper
Peter Bonetti and was selling him
to West Ham.
I didn?t trust Tom, so asked their
chairman Joe Mears.
He said: ?Sign and I promise we
will sell Bonetti.?
So I signed but almost as soon as
I did, Joe dropped dead from a
heart attack and the new chairman
came in and said: ?Peter isn?t going
anywhere? ? even though he still
wanted away.
In fact I played a game at
Southampton because he feigned an
injury.
But then Sir Matt came in for
me. I?d been at Chelsea for three
months and some of that was the
close season.
MILLWALL . . . AND
THE KRAYS
WE WERE in the dressing room on
my Millwall debut and everyone
was wishing me all the best.
We had a big, hard Cockney
centre-forward called Pat Terry,
with a broken nose and scars all
over his face and I thought he was
going to do the same. No chance!
He said: ?Stepney, I know you
like throwing the ball to your fullbacks but these fans have paid to
see me, so get the ball upfield as
quick as you can.?
In the first half I kicked it
straight away.
In the second I rolled one to the
right, the winger crossed and we
scored.
Then I rolled one left, the cross
went over and we scored again.
Afterwards, Pat comes up and
says: ?Stepney, I want a word with
you in the players? bar.?
I thought he was going to buy me
a drink because we won.
I went in and there he was with
two blokes at the bar.
He turned round and said; ?Do
you know my friends . . . Ronnie and
Reggie??
It was the bloody Krays! I got
the ball up to him pretty sharpish
after that.
UNITED . . . AND CITY
IT WAS incredible that I played for
seven years at United in a team
that had THREE European Footballers of the Year.
Bobby was amazing, so was
Denis and then there was Best.
He could score with his right, his
left, headers. He was astonishing.
It was a great time for Manchester because City won the league
in 1968 and we were all good pals.
In fact, Bestie was Mike Summerbee?s best man and I was at the
wedding.
We?d go out for a drink together
and no one bothered you.
It was a great season for
Manchester and an unbelievable
time for three or four years.

some players crumble under

Ronaldo gets even better.
Ronaldo is preparing to sink
his teeth into Liverpool in the
Champions League final in
Kiev on Saturday evening as
he looks to continue another
incredible season.
He has scored 44 times for Real
this term ? the same tally Mo
Salah (left) racked up for the
Reds.
Throw in his six strikes for
Portugal, Ronaldo has reached
his half-century and predictably,
is being billed as the man Liverpool will have to stop.
Zidane was asked whether he
would swap Ronaldo, 33, for
25-year-old Salah ? the Premier
League?s Player of the Season.
But the Real boss, looking for
his third successive Champions
League win, said: ?No. I would not
swap Cristiano or any of my players.
?When he doesn?t score, he still
knows he will score three or four
times in a row.
?He knows he will get there and
he can handle pressure.
?Some

ground yesterday, laughed when
asked if his team are the favourites.
The Germany ace said: ?I think
both teams are hungry. I don't see a
favourite. To reach a Champions
League final, you can?t be bad.
?Liverpool beat Manchester City,
one of the big favourites. It?s 50-50.
?If you arrive in three Champions
League finals in a row it shows you
must be top in terms of motivation.
?If not, you don?t beat Paris
Saint-Germain,
Juventus
and
Bayern in a row.?
Kroos also admitted he has been
impressed with Kop hero Salah?s
stats this season.
He said: ?I have not seen him
that much but the numbers in the
Premier League are impressive.
?Also, he?s scored in important
games in the Champions League,
for example in the semi-final.
?So, I think he is a very good
player who could give us some
difficult situations but we have to
find a solution to the rest of the
players. It is not only Salah.
?They have Roberto Firmino
and Sadio Mane on the other side
? they?re tough to play against.
?We have to beat the Liverpool
team ? not just one player.?

GARETH BALE is sweating on his

The Real Madrid star, chasing a

and the last saw him subbed at halftime against Juventus.
Wales ace Bale, 28, scored five
goals in his last four La Liga games
but boss Zinedine Zidane is refusing
to say whether he will start in Kiev.
Zidane said: ?Gareth?s done quite
well, he?s scored a lot, he?s been
very persistent.

play but we are all together.?

Manuel Pellegrini has a wellfounded reputation for being
rather dull in the flesh.
But boring is probably just
what the Hammers need for a
few years to try to restore their
reputation in English football.
Whatever joint-chairman David
Sullivan may think, last season
was possibly the craziest in the
club?s 123-year history.
Quiet man Pellegrini?s job is to
get people talking about the
football and not events off the
pitch as one of London?s traditional working-class clubs strug-
since Sullivan, business partner
David
Gold
and
vice-chair
Karren Brady stepped in and
took over West Ham when the
club was in a financial mess.
To go back in time through
the previous half-dozen bosses
would take you to 1989 and the
seismic sacking of John Lyall
after 15 years in charge.
Too much has changed too
soon. As well as the controversial move from Upton Park to
the unloved London Stadium,
there has been a major rebranding, a move to a new training
ground and a step away from
the old core values. At a club
steeped in working-class custom,
rapid change does not always go
down well with supporters.
Pellegrini wants four or five
new players ? almost half a
team. In essence, the existing
squad should find life in the
Premier League comfortable.
But the goings-on around them
make it difficult to settle and
they have hugely underachieved.
Up front West Ham are not
badly off. The defence is the key
area to get stuck into.
Pablo Zabaleta, who played for
Pellegrini at Manchester City, is
a class act but is 33 years old.

Joe Hart?s �0,000-a-week loan
from City failed to pay off.
The season was also overshadowed by racism within the management, winger Arthur Masuaku?s
ban for spitting and Andy Carroll
storming off in a hissy fit.
There were fans fighting players and each other, protests
against the board and a relegation battle. It made EastEnders
look like Gardeners? World.
Pellegrini has a reputation for
producing entertaining teams. In
the old days playing decent stuff
was enough for a club umbilically attached to its fans.
That tie is loosening, as with
all clubs in the contemporary
Premier League. Pellegrini?s job
is to ensure it does not snap.

IT would be easy to criticise Gunners? most realistic route back into
League football.
Unai Emery?s appointment as Champions
For the previous couple of weeks,
Arsenal manager.
Mikel Arteta had looked nailed-on to
Easy to write off the Basque coach
as an underwhelming B-list candidate.
As the man who somehow failed to
win the French title in his first season
at filthy-rich Paris Saint-Germain.
The man who oversaw the greatest
capitulation in Champions League
history when PSG blew a 4-0 first-leg
lead to lose to Barcelona last term.
And a man whose record in Europe?s
elite club competition is as poor as
Arsene Wenger?s.
Yet all that would be to overlook the
parlous state of Arsenal just now.
This is a club outside the Champions
League, with an imbalanced squad
unfit for the purpose of breaking back
into the top four and without the
transfer budget to change matters.
Arsenal lack world-class players in
goal, in defence and in central midfield.
The three current squad members
who could be placed in that bracket ?
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh
Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil ? are all
tied to long-term deals but will all be
29 when next season kicks off.
So Arsenal really ought to count
themselves lucky to have attracted a
manager as good as Emery.
A man who, while at Sevilla, won
three successive Europa Leagues ?
the competition which represents the
succeed Wenger at the Emirates.
As Arsenal tried to smooth the path
for Arteta?s anointment, the party line
was that he was a perfect fit for the
?young head coach? model they?d
decided to go with.
And every time you read ?young
head coach?, you found yourself thinking ?cheap head coach? and ?compliant
head coach?.
A head coach who?d kowtow to head
of recruitment Sven Mislintat and head
of football relations (whatever that
means) Raul Sanllehi, two silent operators who could walk down Islington?s
Upper
Street
without
turning a head.
So however much of a
des res the Arsenal
hotseat may seem to
the club?s more ardent
fans, they have been
looking for a manager to take over
a
sub-standard
squad, with an
inadequate transfer
pot
of
�million
and
with little influence in finding
solutions.
Emery
has
clearly agreed to allow former Borussia
Dortmund scout Mislintat and exBarcelona schmoozer Sanllehi to hold
sway on transfers.
But his CV will make his views
harder to ignore than those of Arteta,
who would have been a rookie boss
always grateful for his job.
The ex-midfielder?s lack of popularity
in the Arsenal dressing room may
also have counted against him ? but
essentially the Arteta project was
ditched because chief executive Ivan
Gazidis feared a major fans? backlash.
Arteta was a decent Arsenal player
but he was no Patrick Vieira, another
inexperienced
managerial
candidate
but an easier sell, given his
legendary status.
In
the
end,
though,
Arsenal shredded the idea
of a ?bold? appointment, as
trailed
by
Gazidis
when
Wenger?s
exit
was
announced. They also
ditched the idea of a
sentimental approach.
And as unfashionable as it may sound,
Arsenal ought to be
applauded for backing away from a
reckless gamble.
After 22 years of
Wenger?s
benign
dictatorship, this is
bound
to
be
a
difficult transition. It is a situation that
calls for a safe pair of hands, with
ample experience.
Take away top-class candidates such
as Max Allegri and Luis Enrique ?
who would have demanded bigger
salaries and budgets ? and Emery is
pretty much as good as it gets.
The new manager?s stock is unusually low after he failed to make a
Champions League breakthrough with
PSG, despite a domestic Treble.
And Emery?s uncertain grasp of
English will probably add to initial
suggestions he is not the right man.
But there is a tendency to lazily
write off any foreign manager who
arrives in the Premier League without
having already established himself as a
household name here.
That was true of Mauricio Pochettino,
Claudio Ranieri, Marco Silva and
Wenger himself. It turned out they all
knew what they were doing.
Emery, 46, is a gifted and thorough
coach ? exactly what Arsenal need if
individual players are to be improved;
something which has rarely happened
there over the past decade.
His arrival offers no guarantees of a
return to the glory days and it will not
set too many pulses racing either. But
fortune doesn?t always favour the brave.
Emery (left with Wenger) is a capable, sensible and reliable option.
And, right now, Arsenal could do a
lot worse than that.

now Emery aims to
impress at Arsenal
By GRAEME BRYCE
UNAI EMERY was not tipped as the new Arsene
Wenger when he emerged as one of the hottest young
managers in Spain a decade ago.
Instead he was dubbed the ?New Mourinho? ? and hated it!
The comparison with the now-Manchester United boss was an
easy one to make . . . but lazy.
Like Jose Mourinho, Emery, 46, was the son of a professional
goalkeeper, while grandfather Antonio also donned the gloves.
Like Mourinho, Emery did not enjoy a stellar playing
career, managing just five La Liga appearances for Real
Sociedad before dropping into Spain?s Segunda Division
where he spent the rest of his
playing days as a journeyman
midfielder.
Emery took to management
when a knee injury forced
him to retire at 32, mastering
his trade in the lower ranks
before progressing to become
manager of Valencia aged 36.
By the time I crossed paths
with Arsenal?s new boss two
years later ? before Valencia?s
2010 Champions League clash
with Rangers ? his style, passion and expert handling of
the media had him neatly stereo-typed as Mourinho Mk II.
