Rail chiefs blasted
® by RUTH McKEE
COMMUTERS got a new year shock as it
was revealed the cost of rail season tickets has rocketed by £2,000 in a decade.
Despite the wallet-busting price hikes, punctuality
on the railways has plummeted to a 13-year low.
Of 44 season ticket fares published by consumer group
Transport Focus, 18 have risen by over £1,000 since 2009.
The increases include a season ticket from Swindon to
London which is £2,168 more expensive than a decade ago.
Overall the price of season tickets has jumped 37% in the
past 10 years. And a new surge of up to 3.2% could add over
£100 to the price of many annual tickets.

and engineering works.

But police chiefs said the brave intervention of the sergeant, who is in his

He was discharged from hospital after
treatment to his knife wound.
Four of his colleagues raced to help
him and used a Taser and “incapacitating spray” to detain the suspect.

British Transport Police Assistant
Chief Constable Sean O’Callaghan
said: “I am incredibly proud of the four
officers who were on scene last night.
“They were fearless, running towards
danger and preventing further harm
coming to passengers.
“Unfortunately, one of our officers
suffered a stab injury and we’re all
relieved this was not more serious.”
Greater Manchester mayor Andy
Burnham said: “It could have been
much more serious if not for the outstanding bravery from British Transport Police on the scene.”
Prime Minister Theresa May said:
“My thoughts are with those who were
injured. I thank the emergency services for their courageous response.”
Greater Manchester Police said the
attack was being treated as terrorism
and a 25-year-old man had been arrested. Officers yesterday raided his home
in the city’s Cheetham Hill district.
Last night they added the suspect had
been detained under the Mental
Health Act. A statement added:
“The counter-terrorism investigation
remains ongoing. There is nothing to
suggest the involvement of other people in this attack, but confirming this
remains a main priority.”
The train station is next to Manchester Arena, where suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people in May 2017.

DAILY STAR, Wednesday, January 2, 2019
Says
Kids need
fat control
CHILDHOOD obesity is a national
crisis that grows worse every year.
Kids are now consuming 18 years’
worth of sugar by the age of 10.
This, combined with other unhealthy
foods, has led to almost one in five
youngsters being overweight or obese.
Sadly most will stay overweight for the
rest of their lives.
In doing so, they’ll die younger and are
more likely to have health issues which
puts needless strain on the NHS.
All this costs society and the
taxpayer dearly.
The greatest shame is that all of this is
easily avoidable.
Radical calls to ban or heavily tax
unhealthy foods have been touted as
the magical solution.
But this would be short-sighted. And it
would hit the poorest the hardest.
Instead, more needs to be done to
educate kids that moderation and selfdiscipline with food are the key to
weight control.
Maybe, then, we can start to turn
the tide.
And tackle the obesity crisis blighting our nation.
Railways
in a mess
IMAGINE if the railways operated like
a normal business.
Franchises would get paid only if
they provided an efficient and
timely service.
And they would promptly go bust if they
continually raised prices despite constant delays.
Sadly this isn’t the case.
The industry operates in a different
universe from the rest of us.
Many commuters get hot under the
collar just thinking about how our
nation’s rail inefficiency is rewarded.
This is exemplified by the fact that
some season tickets have shot up by
£2,000 in a decade, despite train punctuality being at a 13-year low.
How this is allowed to continue without
question for so long is beyond belief.
The industry was privatised to improve
competition and provide value to money.
That simply hasn’t happened.
Urgent reforms are needed to bring the
industry in line.
Otherwise ordinary commuters will
continue paying through the nose for
a second rate service.

If your resolution is to tighten

2019, we have the expert
advice to help. It’s never too
The first step to saving money
is to take a cold, hard look at
your incomings and outgoings to
make cuts – it often starts with shopbought lunches – and plan a budget
that works for you.
Haggle on your household bills.
It might sound silly but questioning your general bills can make huge
savings. A Which? magazine study
found that you can save around £725
a year just by questioning the price
of your everyday utility outgoings.
They surveyed more than 2,000
people about their haggling experiences and 58% said they had negotiated sizeable discounts.
Stop auto-renewing. It might
sound obvious but when it
comes to car insurance, home insurance and more, it’s best to shop
around rather than take the autorenew price. They’re offering you
the easy option after all.
The Money Charity estimates

and Bestway. Other stores have
savings for shopping in large
quantities too.
Turn down the heat. It might be
chilly outside, but if you are
walking around indoors in a T-shirt
in winter, you are burning cash.
A simple but effective way to cut
heating costs is to take control of
your central heating thermostat.
Reducing room temperatures by just
1°C could cut your heating bills by
almost 10%. Adjusting your central
heating timer to switch off at night
and during the day if the house is
empty will also minimise fuel
consumption.
Don’t buy bottled water. Places
that serve alcohol are now
required by law to give customers
free tap water, so don’t be shy about
asking for it. Some restaurants
charge more than £3.50 for a bottle
of mineral water, so twice-monthly
diners could save almost £100 a year
by switching to tap.
Avoid wasting food. Make the
most of your fridge and freezer.
Freezing leftovers instead of binning
them will save you money and time,
as you have got an instant meal for a
day when you don’t fancy cooking.
And storing food properly in your
fridge will give it a longer shelf-life.
For example, cucumbers turn soft
because the fridge is too cold – wrap
them in a tea towel to keep
them crisper.
And avoid putting milk in the door
rack, as it’s warmed whenever the
door is opened.
COST CUTTERS: Heating options, loyalty cards and Costco
Cashback claims members amass
£356 per year with this simple shopping trick.
Loyalty cards might bulk out
your purse and wallet but they
are free and a great way to rack up
savings as you spend.
Most of us will have supermarket
loyalty cards such as the Tesco Clubcard or the M&S Sparks card but
there are lots more schemes you might

and you may find that avoiding big
brands doesn’t mean compromising
on taste. Experts regularly do blind
taste tests with brands such as Heinz
and Kellogg’s, against supermarketown items and find tasty results.
Go veggie. Not only will cutting
out pricey cuts of meat save cash
but it can also improve your health.
Eating a balanced, meat-free diet,
even starting with just a few days a
week, can see huge savings and
reduce your waistline – as well as

AS NYE HANGOVERS EASE,
Ron: I
will be
cleared
by truth
CRISTIANO Ronaldo says
he is “very confident” he
will be cleared over the
rape allegation that has
threatened to ruin
his career.
The Juventus star expects
the truth to be revealed
“soon”, and insisted he will
not face any charge over
the alleged sex attack.
He was accused of
raping former model
Kathryn Mayorga in Las
Vegas in 2009 while on
holiday with his brotherin-law and cousin.
The 33-year-old said: “It
hurt me to see my family
upset about the news, but
they know I would never
be able to do that.
“I was calm and very
confident that soon
everything will be clear.”
The case was reopened
last year after Miss
Mayorga filed a civil
lawsuit in September.
The five-time Ballon
d’Or winner proclaimed
the allegations as “fake
news” as he insisted he
was innocent.
He said: “I firmly deny
the accusations being
issued against me.
“Rape is an abominable
crime that goes against
everything that I am
and believe in.”

DOC WARNS OVER SOBERING UP
IS BAD FOR YOU
Picture: SPLASH
Detox makes
us binge the
rest of year
■ by RUTH McKEE
DRY January is bad for you because it
encourages binge-drinking the rest of the
year, a top doctor has warned.
Drinkers vowing to quit the bottle for a month could
actually be doing their health more harm than good.
Experts claim many people will make up for the shortterm abstinence by guzzling as much as they like from
February to December.
And others will use it as an excuse for an even boozier
Christmas and New Year.
Leading liver doctor Mark Wright, a consultant at University Hospital Southampton, also fears the popular trend
is stopping alcoholics from facing up to their problems.
More than five million
Brits now take up the Dry
January challenge to detox
from Christmas benders.
But Dr Wright branded
the fad “a perfect decoy to
justify drinking far too
much in the festive season
with increased intake for
the rest of the year.”
Dread
He said: “Giving up alcohol for January as some
sort of detox is like maxing
out your credit cards all
year and thinking you can
solve your financial problems by living like a hermit
for a month.
“It just isn’t going to make
things better if you then
go back to your usual
habits in February.”
New figures have revealed
7,697 people died from
booze-related illnesses in
2017 – with deaths among
women soaring to the highest levels since 2001.
And researchers have
also found some drinkers
dread the side-effects of
sobering up.
One study found boozy
Brits moaned about headaches and sleepless nights
EXPERT: Dr Wright
after going cold turkey in
January.
And others complained
their friends dropped them
because they were not fun
to be around.
But Dr Wright warned
that if people struggle turning down a tipple for a
few weeks they could have
a problem.
He said: “If anyone is
planning a dry January and
they only manage a few
days, they may have more
of a problem with booze
than they think.”

Hols recovery
takes four days
BRITS take an average of four days to get “back
in the saddle“ after the holiday period.
Re-adjusting to early mornings, the mountain of
work piled up over the festive break and dealing
with challenging clients all take their toll.
Others find it difficult to get in the mood to
exercise, knowing the gym will be packed with
people on a new year fitness kick.
A study for working animal charity SPANA
found for one in six Brits, the feeling of having
nothing to look forward to also means they
struggle to get back into their normal routine.
SPANA chief Geoffrey Dennis said: “Going back
to work after time off can be a shock to the system
– especially after a sustained period of parties,
lie-ins and relaxation.”

SWEET TOOTH: Kids are risking obesity and diabetes
CHILDREN have scoffed
18 years worth of sugar
by the age of 10.
The average youngster has
already gobbled a whopping
304lbs of the sweet treat when
they leave primary school.
Health experts recommend that
10-year-olds consume no more
than 20-25 grammes a day.
However, they have learned that
children are chomping through
an average of 52.2 grammes.
And now Public Health England
has urged parents to tackle
their children’s sugar addiction
in a bid to curb Britain’s raging
obesity crisis.
They say picking better yogurts,
drinks and cereals could help
halve a child’s sugar intake.
The group believes low-sugar
options could cut the equivalent
■ by ALEXANDER BROWN
of 2,500 sugar cubes from each
child’s diet per year. A third of
primary school leavers are now
overweight or obese, and more
young people than ever are
developing Type-2 diabetes.
Overweight kids are more likely to remain fat in adulthood,
putting them at heightened risk
of such health problems as heart
disease and cancer.
Simple swaps
“Children are consuming too
much sugar, but parents can actnow to prevent this building over
the years,” said PHE’s chief nutritionist Alison Tedstone.
She said the PHE’s Change4Life
campaign was designed to help
busy families by offering “a
straightforward solution – by
making simple swaps each day,
children can have healthier
versions of everyday foods and
drinks, while significantly reducing their sugar intake”.
PHE said that food and drink
manufacturers have responded
to calls for lower sugar content,
making it easier for parents to
find alternative options.
In May, the government health
agency published its report
on progress towards a first-year
sugar reduction ambition of 5%,
showing an average 2% cut across
categories for retailers and
manufacturers.
Families are encouraged to look
for the Change4Life Good Choice
badge on products in shops, and
can download a free app to identify lower sugar options.

first and then Betty, who died in
2011, also watched as it shot up into
the sky over West Didsbury in
Manchester in 1977.
Freda recalled: “I noted it had a
slightly misty halo and thought to
myself, ‘It’s watching me as well.’”
“After about 15 minutes I decided

to summon up the

my sister Betty to

“After five minutes or

and disappeared, followed by

Author John, who worked for West
Midlands CID, said: “Needless to
say, Freda and Betty decided to keep
quiet, fearing ridicule.”
The next year the sisters had a
second close encounter 40 miles

BANG BANG ROMEO
Yorkshire trio Bang Bang Romeo
support P!nk on her stadium tour
this summer, and singer Stars has
been practising her best “Hello
Wembley!” for years.
Aged 12, Stars saw Rotherham
United play at Wembley and says:
“I told my dad: ‘One day, this is
going to happen for me here.’”
The trio hung out with Avengers
star Jeremy Renner while
recording in LA.
Stars, 25, recalls: “Jeremy
showed us his studio, which is
bigger than my home village, and
then he said: ‘Shall we go in my
jacuzzi?’ When he got out, at 4am,
the three of us burst out laughing,
going: ‘What is going on?’”
FONTAINES DC
Part of a new punk scene with
touring partners Idles, noisy
Dublin gang Fontaines DC reckon
“writing tunes is what keeps us
alive”. They’re trying to keep calm
about their rise, as singer Grian
Chatten admits: “I want to remain
as ignorant of our trajectory as
possible, otherwise I might turn
into one of those lemmings who

But Grian, 23, has one big goal in

is about trying to take control of
that anger.”
Sophie began writing songs

were all about my emotions.”

SAM FENDER
The winner of the Brits Critics’
Choice award was pleased to be the first
rocker to net the prize.
Sam, 23, says: “There are loads of
great guitar artists saying things, but
not many of them have been given a
platform and I’m very, very lucky to
have an opportunity.”
The Geordie adds: “I’ve got a guitar
sound, but I try to have the social
commentary of hip-hop, talking about
stuff that matters instead of singing
about getting wasted.”
Sam insists success won’t take him
away from writing about real life, saying: “Newcastle is a very proud city, you
can’t abandon your roots when you
come from there. I’ll always just be the
worst barman at my local!”
DERMOT KENNEDY
Already headlining 5,000-capacity
venues, Irish singer Dermot admits:
“Playing to 2,000 people in New York
was a real ‘Bloody hell!’ moment.
“People were already talking about
making my next New York show bigger,
and you have to check yourself and
remember to enjoy those moments.”
Dermot’s producer Mike Dean played
his song Moments Passed to Travis
Scott and Dermot, 25, says: “Being on
FaceTime with Travis was so bizarre.
Moments Passed is my least singersongwritery song and Travis said he
liked it, which is cool.”
A former busker, Dermot reckons
singing in the streets helped him
perform but admits: “Trying to be heard
over other people in the street means I
sing really loud. I have to back
away from the mic in the studio
as I’m so noisy!”
LEWIS CAPALDI
Growing up in West Lothian
helped Lewis find his musical
voice, as he admits: “I’ve been
given time to improve. Not
being somewhere like London or Manchester gave
me more opportunity to
make mistakes.”
He’s headlined decentsized venues but his ambitions don’t stop there.
Lewis, 22, says: “I play a
stripper in one of my videos, so I had topless male
dancers at my last London show. That
went down well, so I’d love to have more
topless male dancers on stage, big
names like Ed Sheeran and Drake guesting, throw in some lasers and fireworks.
Oh, and hire a magician.”
SAMM HENSHAW
Preacher’s son Samm has supported
James Bay and Chance The Rapper,
with his soulful music sitting between
those two extremes.
Samm, 24, says: “My faith plays a huge
part in everything I do, and I put that
into my music.
“My pops loves what I do, he really is
one of my biggest supporters.”
The Londoner (below) has big plans
for his shows, laughing: “I’d love to have
a hologram of Michael Jackson on
stage, maybe get Prince too.
“I’d have a full-on living room on stage
and unlimited jollof rice for the
crowd!”
GERRY CINNAMON
Already a hero in Scotland, selling
10,000 tickets for his Glasgow shows in
five minutes, the rowdy singer is rising
throughout Britain, with his next tour
selling out just as quick.
“I’ve got 15 albums ready to go,” says
Gerry, 33. “I’ve thought about releasing
them all at once, then going off to hide
in Amsterdam.”
Gerry releases his music himself,
saying: “If folk are thinking about
giving up, what I’ve done proves you
can do it all yourself.”
EBENEZER
Rapper Ebenezer has worked with
Craig David and Ty Dolla $ign,
which is a long way from doing the
nightshift at Marks & Spencer.
“That was such mad hours,”
laughs Ebenezer, 25. “It made me
want to make music my career
even more.”
The Londoner is keen to
“share the gift of creation with the world”,
which certainly happened when he supported Rejjie Snow:
“A girl flashed me,
and I almost forgot
where I was. It
totally caught me
off guard!”

THE
COMEBACKS
MANY of music’s big names were resting in 2018. It
seems they were waiting to come back in 2019
instead.
Expect big changes from Adele when her new
album drops near the end of the year: she told
James Corden on Carpool Karaoke it’ll be her first
not to be named after her age. “I believe in trilogies,”
said Adele, stating her fourth record might well just
be called, er, Adele.
It’s three years since Anti – and Rihanna has
been busy working on two new albums: one a
chart-friendly release full of bangers, the other a
harder reggae set. It’s believed Ri may combine
the two.
Readying her first album since 2015,
Madonna says her return is influenced by her
new home in Portugal, and confirmed she’s
worked with Kanye West producer Mike Dean
and Mirwais, the French musician who produced
classic Madonna album Music.
Fresh from conquering the world with her
self-titled debut, Dua Lipa has said the
follow-up will be “full of songs you can
dance to”.
Ariana Grande released new album
Sweetener only in September, but
of course since then she’s
dropped new tunes Thank
U, Next and Imagine. Ari
says Thank U, Next is
likely to be her new
album title too.
Other women back
this year include
Ellie Goulding, Carly
Rae Jepsen and
Lana Del Rey.
The first headliner
confirmed for
Glastonbury, Stormzy,, is
likely to have a new album
ready in time for the festival in
June. Producer Fraser T Smith
said: “There’s no way Stormzy is going to just
recycle Gang Signs & Prayer.”
Liam Gallagher is expected back in the summer
too, working with the same team as on his
successful As You Were debut.
It could be the first time Liam and Noel
Gallagher go head-to-head since Oasis, with
Liam’s big brother back in the studio with dance
producer David Holmes, who produced Noel’s last
album Who Built the Moon?
Speaking of Liams, Liam Payne is finally ready
to release his debut solo album alongside new LPs
by Kanye West, Mark Ronson and Hozier.
Rudimental return with new album Toast To Our
Differences on January 25, featuring Jess Glynne,
Anne-Marie and James Arthur.
Disclosure will follow their five low-key summer
singles with a new album.
I can also reveal Keane are reforming for their
first album since 2012.
Other bands back this year include Foals, The
1975 again, The Chemical Brothers, The Black
Eyed Peas and Kaiser Chiefs.

in 2019. From Geordie rockers to London soulsters, here are
the 15 names who are about to become major stars...
GRACE CARTER
Emotional singer Grace confesses she needs to do music to get over
any troubles. “If I didn’t share my
experiences in my music, I’d have
a breakdown,” laughs Grace, from
Hove, West Sussex.
Her moving single Why Her Not
Me discusses her absent father,
and Grace says: “I can’t believe the
effect my music has, seeing people
crying at my shows and telling me
they’ve been through the same
things.”
Now 21, Grace began writing
songs when her stepfather bought
her a £20 guitar from a Sue Ryder
charity shop. She says: “It was a
tough guitar to play, it made my
fingers bleed. I’ve given it away to
a family friend and I really wish I
could have it back!”

and, inset, Freya Ridings
TWINNIE
It’s an unusual road from Hollyoaks to Nashville, but the actress
who played temptress Porsche
McQueen in the soap now makes
cool country.
“My mum said I was singing
before I was talking,” says Twinnie, 27. “I was writing lyrics before
I started primary school.”
She wants to carry on mixing
singing and acting, admitting: “A
BRIT Award would be a dream
right now – and a Bafta would be
great at some point too!”

KASAI
H a v i n g
worked with Joey
Bada$$ on debut single
Pretty Boys, the R&B singer is already proving her teachers wrong.
“Society tried to make me feel
music wasn’t a realistic career and
a teacher told me to study performing arts at college,” recalls the
Londoner. “But my mum taught
me never to do anything that
doesn’t give career satisfaction.”
Kasai’s songs don’t hold back,
and she admits: “Putting my
experiences out there can be a
little scary. But I don’t have anything to lose.”
FREYA RIDINGS
Freya has featured on her heroine Taylor Swift’s Spotify playlist
and met Florence + The Machine
in the studio.
“It’s lovely hearing from old
schoolfriends,” says Freya, 24. “I
wasn’t bullied at school, I was just
so different people didn’t know
what to do with me, so I’d go to the
piano room and sing stories I’d
normally tell a friend.”
The Londoner loves having
personal moments in her music,
saying: “Sharing those cliff-diving
moments is such a beautiful
connection with people. Every
cliff I get to in a song, I think: ‘Just
dive!’ and it seems to work so far!”
ROBINSON
New Zealander Anna Robinson
dropped her first name “to keep
my everyday self separate”, but
the former barista throws everything into her passionate songs.
Her ballad Nothing To Regret

SI’S DANCE ACT ARE
GREATEST CHANCERS
Wannabe’s
5th attempt
to be a star
THE fight against plastic
should focus on cutting its
use rather than clearing up
the tonnes already in the
oceans, campaigners say.
Experts at the Marine
Conservation Society made
the call to “turn off the
tap” of rubbish ending up
in the environment.
Sir David Attenborough’s
Blue Planet II catapulted
the issue to public
attention last year.
Oceanographer Dr Laura
Foster said: “In 2018, we
saw the Blue Planet II
effect – it really brought it
into people’s homes.
“The most important
thing should be to look at
stopping the amount going
into the ocean – think of an
overflowing bath with the
taps on full blast.
“Meanwhile, we’re trying
to bail with a teaspoon and
we’re wondering why that’s
not having an effect.”
She added: “We need to
focus on stopping things
going into the ocean in the
first place and it may be
that future generations
look at a clean-up.”
The environmental
charity is backing calls for
a deposit return scheme on
plastic containers.
Major brands including
McDonald’s, Costa and JD
Wetherspoon have already
phased out plastic straws.

HOTELS ALWAYS

■ by RUTH McKEE
ROGER Daltrey says hotels
loved The Who trashing their
rooms because the band
paid for the damage.
Legendary late drummer Keith
Moon used to wreak havoc.
Picture: MERCURY
But Daltrey said: “Officially, the
hotels minded. Unofficially, they loved
us. I promise you, they loved us.
“We paid cash for the damage. They
claimed insurance. They got the cash
and they got some nice new interior
Rog: They loved us
decoration.When they thought they
needed a room remodelled, they would
allocate that room to Keith.”
Moon, who died in 1978, was the ringleader as the rockers would glue furniture to the ceilings and leave piranhas
in the bath. Daltrey added: “I feel
sorry for the hotel maids confronted
with toilet seats on the ceiling.”

TACKLES THE DILEMMA OF SPINA BIFIDA IN AN UNBORN BABY
‘ I h o pe M a n dy
helps people in the
same situation’
ACTRESS
Sarah Jayne
Dunn
has
praised Hollyoaks bosses for
their hard-hitting
new plot.
Next month the soap
will feature a disabilityawareness episode as
Mandy Morgan struggles
o come to terms with the
act that her unborn baby
on has spina bifida.
Gorgeous Sarah, 36 – who
has a two-and-a-half-year-old
son Stanley with husband
Jon Smith – has been workng closely with a charity to
make sure they get it right.
Spina bifida is caused by a
defect in the neural tube and
affects the nervous system
eading to possible sympoms, including paralysis and
rain damage.
Speaking exclusively to the
aily Star, she says: “I love our
ow. We always deal with
se delicate subjects before
one else and we’re not afraid
ackle them either. Ever since
EXCLUSIVE
■ by SUSAN HILL
day one, way back when I was
given my big childhood-abuse
storyline, it’s been groundbreaking and it really does help to
bring things out in the open
to get people talking, which is
really important.
“We’ve been working with a
charity called Shine – they’ve
been so helpful and of course
there’s also our wonderful
research team. It’s really opened
my eyes, I had no idea how common spina bifida is, and hopefully
our storyline will help a lot of
people watching who are in the
same situation as Mandy.”
Sarah, who has been in the hit
Channel 4 soap on and off since
1996, returned to the role for good
18 months ago alongside her
on-screen husband Gary Lucy,
who plays Luke.
With best friends Darren
Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson)
and wife Nancy (Jessica Fox)
having stayed in the village, the
fabulous foursome were reunited.
But it didn’t take long for the
cracks to appear in Mandy and
Luke’s marriage – and she fell
into the arms of his best
mate Darren.
In true Hollyoaks style their
lives were ripped apart when the
truth finally came out. Luke
ended up in prison while Nancy
has had to watch her hubby move
in with her former mate.
Outed
that spina bifida is often a genetic
condition – raising a question
mark over her son’s paternity.
Luke begged Mandy to keep the
news from Darren, feeling
helpless as he’s banged up.
Sarah says: “The big disability
episode comes as Mandy and
Darren are deciding whether or
not to have an operation on their
baby while he’s still
in the womb.
“It’s a groundbreaking operation but it comes
with risks.
Sarah adds: “Mandy and Darren
are now together and people are
starting to come around to it.
“Obviously they talked about
having a baby before the affair
was outed and they were an
official couple. But the pregnancy
came as a complete surprise
and
really
tested
their
relationship, which is still
relatively new.
“And then came the
spina bifida diagnosis which led to yet
another massive
twist
for
the
viewers.”

■
Hollyoaks has a lot of people with
disabilities in the show and the
episode follows Mandy as she
bumps into all these different
characters – including Brooke,
who is autistic.
“She sees all these lovely people
leading normal lives and it really
helps. She knows it’s going to be
difficult but in her heart she also
knows that whatever happens it’s
all going to be fine.
“They’re still deciding what to
do but the pregnancy is going to
be tough and complicated.
Lucky
“I really love being back and
can’t believe how lucky
I’ve been with the
storylines
that
they’ve given me. I
really am more
than happy to stay
as long as they’ll
have me.”
But while Mandy
is facing one of
the most challenging times
in
her
life,
Sarah couldn’t
be happier in her
personal life. She
and Jon got hitched in May and,
although they went for a long
weekend together back then, they
flew out to Barbados to celebrate
in style just before Christmas.
She adds: “We are very lucky. We
went to Barbados which was also
part of our honeymoon.
“Stanley is now two-and-a-half
so we thought this might be the
last chance we’d be able to
do something like this over
Christmas because next year he’ll
be fully immersed in the magic of
it all.
“We made sure we did the traditional family Christmas before we
left, but the day itself we spent on
the beach.
“It was our first Christmas as a
married couple and it does feel
more official.
“Even though we already had
the baby and a dog and we lived
together, it just cements everything we have.
“We’re like a proper old married
couple. Even my mum says she
can’t believe how married we are
now but it’s so nice.”

STAR RATINGS
*****Don’t miss it ****Good ***Average
**Time filler *Garbage!
❑
THE INBETWEENERS 2 *** (2014) E4,
9pm There are gross-out moments
galore as Will, Simon and Neil head off to
Australia to surprise Jay, who’s working out
there and claims to be a superstar DJ living. In
reality, he’s working as a nightclub toilet
attendant. A decent ending to the long-running
sitcom foursome.
PITCH PERFECT **** ITV2, 9pm The first
film in the a-capella comedy trilogy is
definitely the best. Anna Kendrick charms as a
student who joins a band of misfits with a
shared love of competitive singing. Rebel
Wilson’s roly-poly routine delivers some big
laughs and Elizabeth Banks gets some sharp
lines as a sarky commentator.

an emotional final day awaits driver Jack Vaughan.
SO how’s the post-Christmas
diet going? Shed any weight
at all yet? OK, perhaps it’s a bit
soon, but you know I wouldn’t
ask if I didn’t care.
This is the time of year, of
course, when TV tends to swamp
us with weight-loss tips, but it’s
often hard to separate the top
advice from the twaddle.
Step forward, TV doctors
Chris and Xand van Tulleken.
As part of their new show
THE TWINSTITUTE (8.30pm,
BBC2), where 30 sets of identical
twins (like them) are helping
compare conflicting medical
theories, they set out to establish
whether diet or exercise is
the best way to slim.
One pair of volunteers takes
on a gym regime that involves
burning an extra 1,000 calories
a day, while the other commits
to a diet that means reducing
their daily calorie intake by the
same figure. Will one or other
method stand out?
Also on the show, Chris and
Xand (I think Xand is the one
with the beard, by the way,
although it may be a false one
they take turns with) hope to
establish if the best way to
handle pain without drugs is to
meditate or swear your head off.
Talking of swearing,
BRADLEY WALSH AND
SON: BREAKING DAD (8pm,
ITV) contains surprisingly little
under the circumstances. It’s a
father-and-son US road trip series,
where Bradley shares quality
time with his lad Barney, but it
also features loads of adrenalinefuelled experiences designed
solely to freak Bradley out. So
when he completes a parachute
jump with barely a single rude
word, I have to say he soars in my
estimation. Not as much, mind you,
as whoever’s edited the footage.

DETOXIFYING THE BODY - NEWS - BY MARK JONES
iz has been on all of
the fad diets over the
years and nothing really
worked for her. As well
as putting on weight she felt
sluggish, tired and lack the
energy and enthusiasm she
used to have in her 20s and 30’s.
At last, she’s found the answer
to all her detox problems and
she’s lost weight too while she
sleeps. Read why Liz hasn’t felt
this good in 20 years!
L
“Since my early 20’s I’ve
gradually put weight on
over the years”
“Since my early 20’s I’ve
gradually put weight on over
the years. It started off with a
few pounds here and there and
gradually increased to the point
where I had to keep buying
a new wardrobe every year
because none of my clothes
would fit me anymore.”
“None of my clothes would
fit me anymore.”
“The weight was only part of
the problem. I also felt tired
and sluggish all the time and I
slowly lost my enthusiasm and
drive. It was as if all my energy
had been sucked out of me and
I was constantly tired and run
down all the time. This really
upset me as I’d always been
an active person and my family
also noticed the difference.
They kept asking me what was
wrong and why I didn’t really
want to leave the house and do
all the things I used to love.”
“I also felt tired and
sluggish all the time.”
“I’d gone to my doctor several
times over the years and he told
me I had to reduce my weight
and increase my activity to keep
my cholesterol, blood pressure
and weight from rising. The

problem was I had no energy or
will power to carry on dieting as
it had always failed in the past.”
The body benefits
from detoxing
“I read about how the body
benefits from detoxing and
wearing detox patches was one
of the ways impurities, toxins,
and unhealthy chemicals can be
drawn out of the skin overnight
by detoxing. I found out that
the Bioenergiser D-Tox patch,
when worn overnight on the
sole of the foot, increased the
heat, moisture, and sweat in the
sole of the foot. This process,
called detoxification, drew out
impurities within the sweat
glands. I was really interested

“Literally took seconds to
apply and they felt really
comfortable.”
“I’d tried everything else,
what did I have to lose? But
I had everything to gain if
it worked for me. For the
first time in ages, I actually
felt excited and energised
because I was doing something
for
myself
which
might
actually be beneficial to me.
That night I placed the detox
patches on each of the soles of
my feet before bed.
“I actually woke up rested
and full of energy. ”

unusual and a relief from all

I also felt different,

“I could feel and see the

“WOW!
Each Bioenergiser

sweat that came out overnight.
The pad was covered in toxins

JUST JANE
We’re so boring
between sheets
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
Dad is
playing
sister
My girl’s
become
a tyrant
MY father is the most
selfish person I’ve met.
When we were
growing up he was in
and out of our lives
like the wind.
For years we were
convinced he was a
fantasist. One minute
he claimed to be
a soldier, the next a
policeman, then a spy.
At the moment he’s
living in Spain with a
woman half his age. I
suspect he’s broke and
bored. He keeps
hinting that he wants
to come home again,
presumably to live
with one of us.
My partner has said
there’s no way he’s
coming here, not even
for one night. But I
can sense that my
sister is weakening.
She’s being played by
a devious dad who is
manipulating her. How
do I protect her?
MY girlfriend has decided
to completely turn her
life around.
She’s given notice at her
job and dropped loads of
old friends who she
believes were dragging
her down.
I’ve been told that I can
only stay in her life if I
agree to a new set of
relationship rules.
I won’t bore you with the
whole list, but basically
she’s decided who I can
and cannot see in future.
She’s drawn up a list of
pubs and restaurants that
she no longer wishes us to
visit and pinpointed a town
on the south coast that
she’d like us to move to.
Also, she never wants to
be in my mother’s company
again – because,
apparently, she’s horrible –
and we’re only to have sex
when she says so.
She’s suggested a break
so that I can mull this over.
I love her very much, but I
don’t like being told what to
do, plus I don’t feel ready to
make these promises.
Picture posed by models
JANE SAYS: Your sister
has to be allowed to
make up her own mind –
and make her own
mistakes.
All you can do is urge
her to protect herself.
Remind her of what you
went through as children.
Bring up the lies your
father told and the
experiences you shared
as the children of a
fly-by-night.
Does she really wish to
bring your father into her
home, especially if he
has never changed?
Isn’t there every danger
he’ll abuse her love and
goodwill all over again?
She is entitled to her
own life now. She’s a free
agent and is not
responsible for him.
Explain that you’ve not
allowed him to get under
your skin, because you
and your partner can see
right through him.
Sadly, if she’s not
prepared to heed your
warnings, then you’ll
have to allow her to do
what she feels best.
SEX LIFE
HAS HIT
BIG RUT
HOW do me and my
bloke make our sex life
better this year?
We have
into a rut.
definitely
got
We love each other very much
but have become more like brother and sister.
From snuggling into our
pyjamas at 8pm to treating ourselves to a hot chocolate at 9pm,
we’re like an old retired couple.
But we’ve only been married for
three years and my mother has a
better sex life than I do.
She’s just taken up with yet another boyfriend and loves to brag
about how many orgasms she’s
getting a night.
Apparently her latest squeeze is
a beast in the bedroom and most
nights she doesn’t get to sleep
until 3am.
Ravished
She’s having so much great sex
that she’s lost a stone in weight
and looks 10 years younger.
Me, I’m 29 and look like her
frumpy sister. Even when my
bloke and I do go up to bed, determined to enjoy some filthy fun,
we fall at the first.
We start making love and go on
and on and on for ages without it
ending up anywhere. There’s no
spark, no explosion of passion.
The only way I can enjoy a halfdecent climax is by thinking
about someone else, and that’s
not really fair, is it?
I imagine myself being ravished
by anyone from pop stars to the
hunky guy who picks up our plastic recycling and I experience a
flicker of pleasure.
My man has suggested sex toys
but I’ve had a look at a few online
TURN OFF: They’ve only been married three years but find it difficult to light bedroom sparks
and don’t think something like
that is for me.
I’d like to talk to him about how
frustrated I feel but we’re not
ones for intimate conversations.
Plus I’m terrified of crushing
his confidence or making him feel
like he’s a failure.
He works very hard and is very
kind but we seem to have lost
our way.
JANE SAYS: You and your man are
in danger of letting your love slip
through your fingers.
You’ve got to talk away from the
bedroom. You’ve got to admit that
your sex life has become stale
and sterile.
You can’t fully enjoy his touch
because, you suspect, the two of
you have got into a sexual rut and
the spark just isn’t there.
Lots of couples do find that early
nights, sex toys and role-playing
bring fresh excitement and perk
things up.
Be bold. Ask your man what
turns him on. What could you do
for him?
Emphasise that something has
to give or resentment and bitterness may creep in.

JANE SAYS: It sounds as if
your girlfriend has gone for
a clean sweep – chucking
out old friends, bad habits
and irritations on the way.
But I don’t see how she
can impose her thoughts
and values on you.
Maybe she doesn’t like
the idea of seeing certain
people who are guilty of
bringing her down, but
you’re not her prisoner.
And how dare she be
so rude and dictatorial
regarding your mother?
I think it’s pretty rich of
her to try to turn you into
someone you don’t want to
be. She has to understand
that you have rights and
feelings too.
Do you want to move if it
will mean giving up your
own job or a long
commute?
Could it be that she’s
quietly trying to finish with
you via all these ridiculous
demands? Will you ever
be able to live up to her
expectations? I think not.
Mocked over
silly boasts
I’VE allowed people to put me down and now I’m paying
the price. I’m not respected or taken seriously at work.
When I started in this office I tried to impress my colleagues with stories about my drinking, wild sex life and
troubled teen years. Now I’m known as a joke figure. I’ve
got a horrible nickname that even the management use.
How could I have been so naive and shortsighted?
JANE SAYS: Sounds like it’s time to move on. Re-invent
yourself and leave your past mistakes behind.
In life there are always plenty of people queuing up to put
us down. Therefore, it’s never a good idea to give folk any
ammunition whatsoever.
You were young and innocent when you started this job,
you were keen to impress, but you’re not that person
any more. Vow to be more sussed in future.

HARD work and tenacity will bring benefits.
You’ve always had a competitive streak which
makes it fun for you to accept challenges. Your chance to
succeed is high because you’re willing to make sacrifices to
outperform the competition. All this effort will soon pay off.
IF you’re looking for work, you could find a
position at an educational or cultural institution with pleasant colleagues. Finding a job you enjoy
without having to worry about making ends meet will
be an answer to a prayer.

DISCUSSING joint finances and shared
commitments is important. If you aren’t
happy with arrangements, leaving things unsaid will
create resentment. Keeping bank accounts strictly
separate will give you more control over your money.
HEALTHY relationships involve give and take.
Someone is abusing their position and you’re
tired of being at their beck and call. Refuse to do anything
that falls outside of the confines of your job description and
if you have to file an official complaint, so be it.

YOU might decide to launch a fitness regime.
This might include taking regular exercise and
eating healthier food. Don’t be in a rush to see results. A
fitness programme requires willpower and dedication. Keep
telling yourself the rewards will outweigh the sacrifices.
MAKING a public appearance will be nervewracking but you will have a lot to celebrate
once it is over. Take pains with your appearance. When

TRY not to fall victim to a sob story. It’s especially important to refuse to give a friend or loved
one a loan when you know it won’t be repaid. If you don’t

for a car, computer or trip you’ve been longing to take.

THIS NEW YEAR...
How to look
Ferne - tastic
■ by JAMES MOORE
SUPER-svelte
Ferne
McCann has transformed
her body with a new
workout and reckons it
has given her a peachy
bum into the bargain!
■
ADVICE:
The Towie
star says you
have to have
goals to get the
body you want
The I’m A Celebrity and exTowie star has bounced back
after her split from convicted
acid attacker Arthur Collins.
And, after giving birth to a baby
girl in 2017, she is looking hotter
than ever.
Now the 28-year-old is sharing
her workout secrets via her debut
fitness DVD, Fit As Ferne.
She told the Daily Star: “I fell off
the wagon and didn’t train for
three months so it was a New Year
resolution last year to get my body
back to where it was.
“I just wanted to get fit and feel
healthy. I’ve been working out two
to three times a week for an hour
at a time.”
And sticking to her new regime
means that Ferne has lost her
flab. She adds: “I’ve dropped two
dress sizes and am now a healthy
size eight.”
The key to her new body is
following a high-intensity workouts regime devised with her
trainer Ellie Hopley.
She explains: “I like to focus on
sculpting one part of the body at a
time and the DVD is a genuine
reflection of what I’ve been doing
in the gym.
CELEB’S TOP 3 TIPS
1. Get started: Beginning
your workouts is the first
hurdle, but don’t put too
much pressure on yourself –
remember you can do them in
pyjamas!
2. Let other people know: If
you’ve got a fitness goal tell
others – they can help
motivate you to achieve it.
3. Set dates: Have a goal
and put it in the dairy. My aim
was the National Television
Awards last year. I didn’t want
to look bloated on the red
carpet, I wanted
to feel good.
What’s GOOD for you..
VAPE EXPECTATIONS:
Health chiefs have
launched a new campaign
to encourage Brits to quit
smoking this month,
revealing that vaping is
95% less harmful than
smoking normal
cigarettes. However,
44% of us wrongly think
e-cigarettes are no better.
ICE MOVES: With
Dancing On Ice set to hit
telly again this month,
research for fitness brand
realbuzz has shown that
getting your skates on
could get you fit. It turns
out you can burn 165
calories in just 30
minutes on the rink – the
same as four roast spuds.
TRI-ING TIMES: Strictly
star Lauren Steadman is
backing the new Tri
January campaign,
encouraging us to take
on a triathlon challenge
this month. Simply swim,
row and bike and run
throughout the month to
your chosen distance.

trijanuary.org
What’s BAD for you..
SUGAR SHOCK: Kids
are scoffing the equivalent of 2,800 more sugar
cubes than they should
annually, according to
new figures from Public
Health England, with a
typical 10-year-old
already having consumed
18 years’ worth of sugar
(see our story on Page
10). Parents are being
urged to make healthier
swaps with top tips at
www.nhs.uk/change4life
EYE WATERING: New
research by laser eye
surgery firm Optegra
shows Brits will
spend £17,500 on their
eyes during a lifetime
– on glasses and contact
lenses. Yet nearly half of
us aren’t even satisfied
with the eye care we get.
SKIPPING LUNCH:
Despite nutritionists
warning that regular
mealtimes are essential,
a poll for PrepCo has
revealed that 46% of us
skip lunch more than
once a week – often
because we say we don’t
have the time to prepare a
healthy option.

Sweating
“There are lots of quick-fire
workouts like jumping lunges,
doing as many reps as you can
or specific exercise to target
your abs. It’s designed to get
your heart pumping and your
body sweating, focusing on toning, building your core strength
and burning fat.
“The HIIT section will get you
fitter faster and help you burn
calories even after you’ve
finished the workout.”
But it’s the section on working
your glutes – the muscles that
support your bum – that she
really loves.
She laughs: “I’m all for a bit of
perfect pert booty. Things like
doing deadlifts in the gym – I
know they work!”
Ferne is also a fan of exercises
that you can build round a
busy lifestyle.
She explains: “About 80% of people drop off on their New Year
resolutions. But if I can do it then
I think anyone can. You have to be
realistic and fit it around your
schedule making the workouts
short and snappy.”
However, Ferne reckons people
can get too hung up on what
they’re eating.
She says: “I don’t like the scales,
some people can get too obsessed
with counting calories.”

or sushi for lunch and tend to have
fish like salmon for dinner with
some sweet potato and veg. I also
drink plenty of water.”
But Ferne adds: “I always give
myself a day off and love a cheesy,
sloppy pizza or a salt beef bagel!”
A glass of Prosecco or white
wine is Ferne’s favourite tipple
but as thousands give up the booze
for January she reveals that
taking a month off alcohol really
can do you some good.
She adds: “I took a month off
drink last year and was so
impressed with myself. As soon as
you start saying no it gets easier
and I felt better in the gym, healthy
and cleansed.”
Yet while her exercise regime is
all about speedy workouts, Ferne
warns that there are no quick fixes
when it comes to getting in shape.
She explains: “This is not something that happens overnight–
consistency is the key. I have
worked hard for this body and I’m
in the best shape of my life!”

POWER AND
THE GLORY
TRAINER Colin Tizzard believes
Lostintranslation
has
all
the
attributes to become a serious
contender for the Cheltenham Gold
Cup after the gelding landed the
Betbright
Dipper
Chase
at
Cheltenham yesterday.
Sent to the front by Robbie Power, he looked
cooked when collared by Defi Du Seul at the
second-last fence, but when asked for a final effort
he fought back like his life depended on victory.
“Hopefully, he will become a Gold Cup horse one
day,” said Tizzard. “He’s got pace, and he stays –
he’s got everything. And of course, he’s just got to
improve 30lb!”
On The Blind Side, sent off the 9-4 favourite, was
a bitter disappointment. He never was in
contention and finished 78 lengths last of the four
runners.
“We’ve been blessed by Thistlecrack and Native
River in recent years and he could be our next
good one,” added Tizzard.
The Dorset trainer is considering taking Power’s
advice and head to next month’s Leopardstown
Festival before returning to the Cheltenham
Festival for JLT Chase in March.
But Tizzard has decided that Thistlecrack, an
excellent second behind Clans Des Obeaux in last
week’s King George VI Chase, does not need
■ by CHRIS GOULDING
another run and will go straight to Cheltenham
for the Gold Cup.
“Our best chance of winning another Gold Cup
with him is to go there without another run,”
added Tizzard.
“John and Heather Snook (the owners) have
never had a runner in the Gold Cup and it is a
case of keeping him sound.
“He’s been a difficult horse to train so he will
have a racecourse gallop beforehand.”
Native River, who won last year’s race, is the one
they all have to beat according to his trainer.
But it was not all good news for Tizzard as his
Ladbrokes Gold Trophy winner Sizing Tennessee
will miss the rest of the season due to injury.
Sue Smith and her husband Harvey, famed for
his V sign salute in his day when show jumping,
made the trip from Yorkshire worthwhile after
Midnight Shadow showed a progressive profile
when taking the Relkeel Hurdle.
“I hope to bring him back here in March for the
Stayers’ Hurdle,” said Sue Smith. “Danny (Cook
who rode) said we are better going for the Stayers’
Hurdle rather than the Champion Hurdle.”
Local trainer Fergal O’Brien welcomed the New
Year in impressive fashion after Jarveys Plate,
under Paddy Brennan, had his rivals strung out
like washing when landing the Ballymore Novices’
Hurdle.

PDC WORLD DARTS FINAL
VAN GER WIN
Mighty Mike lands magic
treble to KO brave Bully
■
ROAR POWER:
Van Gerwen on
way to world title No.3
MICHAEL
VAN
GERWEN
clinched his third PDC world
title at the Ally Pally last
night.
Riding out the brief storm of his fourset lead being cut in half, Van Gerwen
sealed the William Hill world crown
with a 7-3 win over Michael Smith.
It was not a classic final. In keeping
with much of the tournament, it was a
let-down like the punchlines in your
Christmas cracker jokes.
But Van Gerwen deservedly became
the first champion to win a third PDC
crown since Phil Taylor 22 years ago.
MVG has averaged 100-plus in 19 consecutive matches and although his going
rate of 102.21 was at the lower
end of his scoring power, it
was good enough.
Van Gerwen said: “This
is the best feeling you
can have. I have worked
for this so long and
everyone knows I’ve
had a difficult year.
“I’ve played good but
I haven’t performed
as well as I could have
done, so to win this
trophy, it’s phenomenal.
This means a lot to me.
“Michael is a phenomenal
player. He always makes it hard
for me. One day he will lift this trophy.
He has so much talent.”
Smith (inset), who has never won a TV
major, suffered from stage fright and
didn’t start playing until he was 4-0 down.
If he is as nervous and ham-fisted when
he gets married on Saturday, he will
drop the rings and get his vows wrong.
For long periods of a mismatch so disappointing that the first half was an
ordeal to watch, the huddled masses at
the Alexandra Palace fell eerily quiet.
The Dutchman we can deal with in
short measure. After Taylor, he is going
to be the greatest player of all time.
But for poor Smith, Van Gerwen
remains an immovable object at the top
of the darting tree. In the Premier

SUPER League chief
executive Robert
Elstone insists the
competition’s new
rules will speed the
sport up significantly.
Teams will be
subjected to a ‘shot
clock’ at every scrum,
goal-line drop-out and
conversion in 2019 to
keep matches flowing.
Elstone said: “Our

and more dramatic.”
Super League will

As well as clinching

Wolf said: “He is

and his partnership
with Tommy Hilfiger
is very successful.
“It makes him happy

Tour clash

and Chris Froome will
bring the curtain
down on the Team Sky
era by going head-tohead at the Tour de

Four-time champion
Froome will not

concentrate on a
record-equalling fifth
yellow jersey.
Thomas (left), who
stormed to a maiden
triumph last year,
said: “The main goal

the Tour de France for
the best result I can.”
■ by MIKE WALTERS
League play-off final last May, Mighty
Mike averaged a monster 112 and blew
him away 11-4.
And he came up well short again here.
In the first final between two players under 30 since Keith Deller’s 138 checkout
toppled Eric Bristow 36 years ago, Smith
scattered his darts across the target like
a bag of nails falling out of the attic.
Cheered to the rafters during the walkon, his body language betrayed him.
Too often Smith was a portrait of
frustration – drooping shoulders,
shaking head, muttering sweet nothings to his entourage and buckling
under pressure.
For a player nicknamed ‘Bully
Boy’ it was ominous when
Smith lost the bullseye
shoot-out backstage for
the right to throw first.
It was even more forbidding for the underdog when Van Gerwen
took out 129 on the bull
to open his account.
And
when
Smith
missed 10 of his first 13
shots at a double, allowing Van Gerwen to chalk
up a 2-0 lead, the writing
was on the wall.
Once MVG had gone 4-0 in front,
it was not a question of whether he
would wear the crown again, it was only
whether he would dish out a first whitewash in the final since Taylor left Peter
Manley at the starting gate in 2006.
At least Smith summoned the courage
to knock out 124 and break his duck. And
before you knew it, back-to-back bullseye finishes had halved the deficit to 4-2.
But Van Gerwen soon recovered his
composure, and the title.
Smith said: “I just couldn’t get going
but I still had chances.
“If I took those chances, it would have
been 5-5. I’m more annoyed with myself.
“I kept looking at the trophy and thinking it belonged to me. I think I tried way
too much.”
Murray is back
for now
ANDY MURRAY confessed
he does not know how
long he will keep playing
after winning the first
match of his latest
comeback.
The former world No.1
overcame world No.234
James Duckworth 6-3 6-4
at the Brisbane International.
But the Scot, 31, who
had hip surgery last
January after limping out
of Wimbledon in 2017,
said: “It’s been a really
hard 18 months, a lot of
ups and downs.
“I want to try and enjoy
playing tennis as long as I
can. I don’t know how
much longer it’s going to
last but we’ll see.”
The double Olympic
champion returned to
action for two grass-court
■ by NEIL McLEMAN
events last summer but
shut down his season in
September to work on
rehabbing his hip.
He admitted before his
return Down Under that he
still felt pain in the joint
and he struggled during
his 88-minute victory.
Murray will next face
No.4 seed Daniil
Medvedev as he continues
his build-up to the Australian Open on January 14.
Fellow Brit Jo Konta
recorded her first win over

SUNDERLAND strengthened

finish was enough for victory.
He stole ahead of his marker
to flick home Aiden McGeady’s
cross and claim his 14th league
goal of the season.
Blackpool came close to an
equaliser when Armand
Gnanduillet poked the ball past
Jon McLaughlin, only for a
back-tracking Jack Baldwin to
hack clear from the goal-line.

struggling Scunthorpe
stunned Peterborough.
He put Stuart McCall’s
men ahead after five
minutes when seizing on a

GRAHAM COUGHLAN made
it 10 points from a possible 15
as Bristol Rovers caretaker
boss with a goalless draw.
Ben Turner went closest to a
winner for Burton with a
77th-minute header from a
corner that flew inches wide.
And at the other end it was
centre-back Turner who was
on hand to block a shot from
Rovers substitute Liam
Sercombe on the line in the
68th minute.
RONAN CURTIS netted a
late winner as Portsmouth
saw off AFC Wimbledon to
move five points clear.
Jamal Lowe opened the
scoring when Tom King
failed to deal with a Curtis
shot and the Pompey winger
coolly lifted the rebound

seat at half-time.
And Marquis doubled his
tally in the second half, from 25
yards, to move on to 18 goals
for the season with James
Coppinger adding a fifth.
A SUPERB goalkeeping
performance from Nathan
Bishop helped Southend
beat Gillingham.
The Shrimpers shotstopper made a series of
fine saves to ensure the win,
with Sam Mantom firing the

at his near post.
COVENTRY celebrated their
third consecutive win as they
inflicted a fourth straight
defeat on Wycombe.

AITOR KARANKA has no doubt
his Forest players are fighting

Defeat means the visitors have suffered

around with three goals in seven minutes
Forest fans sang the manager’s name
all afternoon and he said: “I don’t have
a doubt the players are playing for
me. I have felt the support from the
fans since I arrived.
“Our comeback in this match has
been amazing.”
Karanka’s men stunned Leeds with
their early goal as Adam Forshaw’s
sloppy back-pass allowed Colback to
pounce.
There was a huge let-off for the
home side in the 18th minute when
Jack Robinson somehow avoided a

Phillips saw
red for this
tackle on
red card when he hauled down Jack
Harrison just outside the box.
Phillips was then given his marching
orders for an awful studs-up lunge on
Adlene Guedioura in the 42nd minute.
Despite the numerical disadvantage,
half-time substitute Clarke fired in an
equaliser before Pontus Jansson’s header
teed up Alioski to put Leeds ahead in the
64th minute.
It was looking grim for Karanka but the
momentum swung back when Colback
fired in his second in the 69th minute.
Fragile
Jansson then turned villain as he missed
a header, allowing Murphy to make it 3-2.
And the City Ground was rocking when
Osborn cut inside to finish brilliantly in
the 76th minute.
Bielsa said: “Factors were against us. We
had to play a man down and we were a
little bit fragile in defence.
“The fact we dare to play, sometimes it
has negative aspects but we have a style.
“It’s obvious it wasn’t a necessary foul
from Kalvin but the intention wasn’t to
hurt the opponent.”

Bolton manager Phil
Parkinson said: “We were
exposed by a team who are

NEIL HARRIS was so angry
with his Millwall players he
wanted to change the whole
team at half-time.
Instead, the Lions boss put
on experienced Steve Morison
and he inspired a three-goal
fightback.
Jack Lankester put Ipswich
ahead in the second minute
but a Shane Ferguson penalty
and goals from Jake Cooper
and Tom Elliott after the
break turned it around for
Millwall before Kayden
Jackson’s late consolation.
Harris said: “It was a
horrendous first half and it
was not acceptable.
“I thought about changing

for the first time ever, I

Ipswich boss Paul Lambert
said: “We were excellent first
half and nobody would have
begrudged us if we had been
three up by half-time. Morison
came on and we never dealt
with the long balls.”
The result leaves Ipswich 10

ROUND-UP
by JOHN WRAGG
DERBY
MIDDLESBROUGH

DERBY boss Frank Lampard
claimed George Saville should
have been sent off as his side
dropped more vital points.
Referee Robert Jones decided only to book
Middlesbrough midfielder Saville for his
foul on Jack Marriott just before half-time.
But Lampard felt the punishment should
have been more severe.
He said: “It felt like a red card to me. It
was a dangerous tackle. They slightly got
away with that one. It looked like a red.”
Marriott took plenty of punishment
during the 90 minutes and Lampard added:
“Listen, Middlesbrough are a physical side,
I don’t mind that, but the tackle was a bit
over the top.”
Despite storming into the lead after 90
seconds with Harry Wilson’s cracking goal,
sixth-placed Derby couldn’t build on that
and Jordan Hugill levelled on 53 minutes.
Wilson’s goal was excellent as the
on-loan
Liverpool
man
collected
Marriott’s pass before driving the ball
home with his left foot.
After that, though, it was Boro who took
over but they had to wait until after the
break for Hugill to get his head to George
Friend’s cross to equalise.
“They got the early goal but our response
was marvellous,” said Middlesbrough
boss Tony Pulis.
“We took control for long periods. (Danny)
Batth’s chance was the best of the game
and he knows he should have scored.
“What I’d say about Saville is that I didn’t
see whether he’d gone over the ball.
“But Sav is an honest kid. If it was a bad
tackle, it certainly wasn’t meant.”
Derby’s best chance of snatching a late
win was wasted by sub David Nugent as
he drove straight at Darren Randolph
from eight yards in the 86th minute.
Lampard added: “We played really well
for the first portion of the game, it was a
great team goal, and we slightly let them
off the hook after that.
“Small details can be the difference, so
it’s a big lesson for the players.”

– we have no chance at all if
we start games like this.
“I was angry at half-time, we
looked scared. This isn’t war,
it’s a football match so go on
to the pitch in the second half
and show what you can do.
“I promise while I am here as
head coach we cannot see this
any more – it is unacceptable.”
Swans manager Graham
Potter said: “I have had better
Christmases, so it is nice to
make a good start to 2019.”
ROTHERHAM midfielder Will
Vaulks says the Millers are
good enough to stay in the
Championship – even if
manager Paul Warne doesn’t
make any new signings.
Vaulks’ free-kick and
Michael Smith’s header sank
Preston, but Rotherham were
barely able to fill their
substitutes’ bench due to
injuries and suspension.
Warne needs fresh blood, but
Vaulks said: “This group is

didn’t sign anyone.”

Colchester’s Frankie Kent

CARLISLE extended their

PREMIER LEAGUE
We’ve never been
further Howay
from glory
EXCLUSIVE
■ by IAN MURTAGH
FIFTY years since winning their
last major trophy, Newcastle are
further away than ever from ending
their barren run, according to
former chairman Sir John Hall.
Hall was at the helm when Newcastle, under
Kevin Keegan, famously blew a 12-point lead in
the title race as Manchester United overhauled
them to be crowned champions in 1995-96.
They also lost successive FA Cup finals in the
same decade, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side
beating them on the way to the Treble in 1999.
But the 90s also saw Toon thrash United 5-0 in a
match Sir John (above) cites as the high point of
his time at the club.
The two teams clash at St James’ Park tonight and
he admits his expectations are now very different.
“What a magnificent day that was,” he said of
Newcastle’s 1996 romp.
“One of the great Premier League performances
which is still talked about all these years later.
“But do you know something? I will be
celebrating if we manage to draw this one.
“Back then, the aim every season was to win the
title. Now it’s all about survival.”
SAYS SIR JOHN HALL
Harsh
Sir John, 85, will mark the half-century since
Bob Moncur lifted the Inter-City Fairs Cup – a
precursor to the UEFA Cup – in 1969 with a
mixture of sadness and resignation.
He said: “There have been a lot of ups and downs
– probably a few more downs in recent times.
“I’ve often tried to get my head around why it’s
been so long. In my day, maybe we tried too hard.
“Had we won the league under Kevin I am convinced Newcastle’s history would be very different.
“The harsh reality is that today, more than at
any time since 1969, we are probably further
away than ever from winning something. And
there is no chance of doing so until there is
change at the club.”
Which brings us to Mike Ashley, the
controversial owner who bought the club
in May 2007 for £134m from Sir John, his
son Douglas and Freddy Shepherd.
Many fans still blame Sir John for
selling to the retail magnate.
But he added: “Mike came with the
best intentions. I firmly believe that.
“He wanted to globalise Newcastle
and to use the club to market his
brand of goods in the Far East.
“But he fell out with supporters
pretty quickly. The club is in
limbo.
“Mike’s had enough and, for
everyone’s sake, the sooner he
moves on, the better. That’s my
fervent wish for 2019.”

Wrexham for their Boxing
Day mauling.
Salford ended a run of
four defeats with a 2-0 victory against the team that
thumped them 5-1.
Green put the home side
ahead before Gaffney
doubled the score on the
hour to lift City to within
one point of the secondplaced Dragons.
Macauley Bonne’s 19th
goal of the campaign
against Dagenham was
■ by GRAHAM NICKLESS
enough for Leyton Orient
to extend their lead at the
top to four points.
Fylde notched their
second festive draw
against Barrow, who
stretched their own
unbeaten run to eight
games with a stalemate.
Halifax’s Jonathan
Edwards hit a stoppagetime equaliser in the 1-1
draw with Harrogate.
BOURNEMOUTH boss Eddie Howe
has told midfielder Jefferson Lerma
not to tame his wild side.
Lerma (right) has picked up nine
yellow cards this season and one
more will trigger a two-match ban.
The Colombia World Cup star has
been booked a staggering 25 times
in 41 matches since the start of last
season.
“It’s why in some respects we
bought Jeff, not for the bookings
but for the physical side of the
game,” said Howe, whose side
entertain Watford tonight.
“For his ability to stop counterattacks and to bring a steel to our
midfield. The side effect to that is
■ by ALEX CROOK
that he has picked up bookings, he
has been unlucky with a few and
some have probably been deserved.
“Of course we don’t want him
suspended but it looks like that is
on the horizon. We just hope he can
delay it for as long as he can.
“We can talk to Jeff and make
sure he controls the number of
bookings he gets, but a lot of them
have been for moments and tackles
where he is very much in the game
and trying to stop certain situations
from occurring.
“In the end, you cannot stop the
natural instinct that he’s got.”
Roy: No cash
ROY HODGSON says Crystal Palace will
not spend their way out of trouble.
The former England boss takes his
goal-shy Eagles to big-spending Wolves
this evening after scoring just 17 goals in
20 matches – and only five at home.
Palace are desperate for more firepower
and want Liverpool forward Dominic
Solanke on loan.
While promoted sides Wolves and Fulham
spent more than £160m between them in
the summer, Palace only splashed out
£9.5m on West Ham’s Cheikhou Kouyate.
Hodgson said: “Every club has its budget,
has its possibilities – or lack thereof.
‘‘Fulham and Wolves splashed out
enormous sums of money but Cardiff,
Newcastle and we haven’t. You accept the

ON A ROLL: Solskjaer
Ole’s out
to catch
Sir Matt
■ by DARREN WITCOOP
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER
hopes to take another step
towards matching Sir Matt
Busby when he takes his
Manchester United side to
Newcastle tonight.
Solskjaer has made a
dream start at Old Trafford
as caretaker boss with
three wins out of three.
Only the late, great Busby
– who chalked up five
successive wins – has
ever had a better start at
the club.
The only real negative
so far for Solskjaer has
been the failure to keep a
clean sheet.
“We are looking for that
clean sheet,” said the
Norwegian.
“We are looking for that
foundation to let the front
four just go and enjoy
themselves, because
when you know you are
keeping a clean sheet,
it is easier to perform
and to create chances,
nothing is rushed.
“As long as you play the
right way, if you dominate
games, then more often
than not you’ll get enough
points in the end.”
United have not won at
St James’ Park since 2015,
with Matt Ritchie scoring
the only goal last season.
And Solskjaer will have
to make a change in
defence as Eric Bailly
starts a three-match ban.
Alexis Sanchez will be in
the squad for the first time
since November after
recovering from a
hamstring problem.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan
are eyeing England
defender Ashley Young and
hope to snap him up on a
free transfer.
Young, 33, can negotiate
a pre-contract agreement
with clubs outside England
as he is in the final six
months of his current
United deal.
SUB STORY
FORSaNASRI
mir’s on bench
SAMIR NASRI looks set
to start his West Ham
career on the bench
against Brighton tonight.
The former Manchester City star
is eligible after signing on a shortterm deal after his doping ban
ended but is unlikely to start.
Manuel Pellegrini looks certain
to make changes from the side
beaten 2-0 at Burnley, with Pedro
Obiang set to come in for Mark
Noble and Pablo Zabaleta fit again.
But midfielder Nasri, 31, has
not played since November 2017
and will be eased in gently.
Boss Pellegrini is banking on the
return of Zabaleta to shore up his
defence.
The right-back has missed two
matches and Michail Antonio has
looked shaky as his stand-in.
Before Sunday’s defeat the
Hammers had won five out of six
■ by PAUL BROWN
and Pellegrini said: “When you
lose, you want to play immediately.
“We need to recover immediately
and add points. Playing Brighton
will be difficult but I hope we see
the team we have seen in the other
games.”
Captain Noble is convinced his
team-mates have the strength of
character to bounce back.
He said: “We know we are a lot
better than we looked at Burnley
but we have to show it by bouncing
back.
“We got beaten by Watford just
before Christmas and we bounced
back. We showed how good we can
be by winning at Southampton.
We’re going to put the Burnley
game to bed. You’ve got to in this
league. If you dwell on it then you
end up getting beaten again.”
Meanwhile, Valencia target
Javier Hernandez has been told
he is going nowhere unless the
Hammers sign a replacement.
Brighton boss Chris Hughton has
just passed his fourth anniversary
in charge of the Seagulls – not that
he celebrated.
“There’s definitely no cake and
I don’t think there’ll be dinner
either,” he said.
“A four-year anniversary is not a
particularly big one. Maybe five
sounds a bit better – or even 10!”

situation that’s prevailing at your club and
try and make the most of it.
“Chequebooks aren’t always the answer.
Sometimes you splash the cash and get
great success but Fulham have spent more
than us and are well below us.”
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has
urged his players not to spoil their stunning
win against Tottenham on Saturday by
thinking it will be easy to repeat it tonight.
“If we think we can just go out there and
win just because we beat Tottenham, then
we are wrong,” he said.
“We must work hard and try to ensure we
start the same way against Palace as we
finished the game against Spurs.”
MAURIZIO SARRI has told Callum
Hudson-Odoi that he is still not
ready to start games for him.
Chelsea insist Bayern Munich
need to double their £20m bid for
the England Under-19s star, who
has refused to sign a contract
extension at Stamford Bridge.
Fans voiced their frustration at
Sarri’s treatment of the academy
graduate (right) when he was
subbed at Watford on Boxing Day.
But boss Sarri said: “I think that
he is a very good player, the
potential is for becoming a great
player, and now he has to improve.
“He has the potential to become a
very important player, not only for
■ by NEIL McLEMAN
the English football I think but for
the European football.”
Hudson-Odoi is a doubt for
tonight’s visit of Southampton with
a hamstring injury.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl
said: “We know if you want to take
a point or three against Chelsea,
you have to play a perfect game.
“We had two crucial moments
against (Manchester) City.
“If you want to have a chance
against such teams, in those
moments, you have to score or get
the penalty. We didn’t. Maybe we get
these moments against Chelsea.”
Turf talk cures
Dyche problems
SEAN DYCHE has
revealed that clear-the-air
talks helped get Burnley
back on track.
The Clarets had lost
nine out of 11 league
matches and tumbled into
the bottom three before
Sunday’s 2-0 win over
West Ham.
Dyche’s side are still in
the relegation zone as
they travel to bottom club
Huddersfield tonight but
will climb out of it if they
can better Southampton’s
result at Chelsea.
And the Burnley
boss said: “We had a
meeting the other
day, and just said,
‘Right, here we are,
this is the reality’.
“We’re not
renowned
for doing
BS.
“We
make sure
that the
players
know in
real terms
the challenge
that’s in
front of us,
and then
it’s a
question
of how
■ by MIKE WHALLEY
we can affect that
challenge.
“We shared a few views
on it, picked a team and
they then showed they
were willing to take the
challenge on, because
that was a performance
full of endeavour, fight
and quality.”
Dyche (below) made five
changes, included
dropping goalkeeper Joe
Hart and bringing in Tom
Heaton, who made an
outstanding late save
from Andy Carroll
and is set to keep
his place at
Huddersfield.
“When you
see a team
that can
perform
and it
doesn’t, it’s
confusing,”
added
Dyche.
“It was
about
reminding them
of the simplicity
of it and
allowing them
to go out and
play.”

UNAI HAS
Gunners boss knows
how to beat the boos
MOST people have suffered from boos on New
Year’s Day.
But Arsenal manager Unai
Emery took just three minutes
to find the perfect cure.
Not only did he avoid a hangover
after three defeats in five games, but
in the end his Gunners saw in 2019
with a bang.
The home fans turned against their
manager as Fulham threatened to
come back into a game Arsenal had
pretty much bossed from the off.
His decision to replace Alexandre
Lacazette with Aaron Ramsey with
15 minutes to go was met with open
hostility from a large number of fans.
But when Sead Kolasinac’s cross
was diverted onto the post by PierreEmerick Aubameyang moments
later, guess who was in the perfect
place to fire the ball into the net and
put those Arsenal jitters to rest?
Drive
Part of the problem had been a
rare Aubameyang shocker in front
of goal. Arsenal’s top scorer might
already have had a hat-trick before
he finally added a late chaser of a
goal with a 15-yard drive which
deflected kindly off Tim Ream.
Ryan Sessegnon should have
scored twice before Arsenal got off
the mark as his pace undid a back
three of Laurent Koscielny, Sokratis
and a fit-again Shkodran Mustafi.
He raced clear only to steer his
shot several feet wide in the 15th
minute and nine minutes later
failed to connect with the ball
when he attempted to side-foot
home from 12 yards.
Fulham were having their own
defensive problems and Granit
Xhaka was the one to take advantage after Sessegnon’s second miss.
His run left Tom Cairney standing
and when Denis Odoi failed to cut
out Alex Iwobi’s cross, the Arsenal
midfielder had time to take the ball
on his chest and steer it home.
Lacazette drilled the ball into the
net in the 55th minute to make it 2-0
after a stunning move and should
have inflicted more damage when
Xhaka picked him, only for Sergio
Rico to save well. Fulham then

FULHAM

threatened to turn the game on its
head. Lucas Torreira lost possession in midfield and the ball was fed
on eventually to Sessegnon, whose
ball across the six-yard area reached
Aboubakar Kamara at the far post.
On Saturday, Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri said he “wanted to
kill” the striker after he missed a
penalty against Huddersfield that
he shouldn’t have been taking.
This time, Kamara’s unerring
finish breathed life into Fulham.
Emery will not have heard anything from the Arsenal fans like the
reaction he got when he made his
tactical switch.
As it was, Ramsey’s late pick-meup seemed more than enough to
ensure the Arsenal fans’ glasses
were back to half-full again.
ARSENAL (3-4-3): Leno; Mustafi (Torreira 46),
Sokratis, Koscielny; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi,
Xhaka, Kolasinac; Lacazette (Ramsey 75),
Aubameyang, Iwobi (Saka 83).
Subs: Cech, Elneny, Lichtsteiner, Nketiah.
FULHAM (3-4-3): Rico; Odoi, Le Marchand,
Ream; Christie (Fosu-Mensah 56), Cairney,

Schurrle (Kamara 61).

season’s total to 16.
That type of reliable
finishing has Brighton,
Fulham and Huddersfield

to sign the 21-year-old.
But Villa manager Dean
Smith does not expect
Chelsea to sell.
“This is a situation that
is not in my control – if

Chelsea decide to bring
him back, then there is
nothing I can do,” he said.
“But I am of the
understanding they are
not looking to sell him.
He’s having a very good
loan spell here, which can
only get better as the
season goes on.”
Abraham gave his side
the lead yesterday with a
precise header from Conor
Hourihane’s cross on 21
minutes before Luke
Freeman equalised
with a stunning 25-yard
drive four minutes
before the break.
Eberechi Eze then put
Rangers ahead in the
57th minute when he
finished off a flowing
counter-attack but
Abraham struck again
with a sharp volley 15
minutes from time.
QPR manager Steve
McClaren said: “You have
to show character when
you go away in the league
and we had that.
“We worked very hard
and we scored two
excellent goals.”

the hunt for his signature. But Gunners boss
Emery, who denied there had been any
conversation about a loan move for Chelsea
defender Gary Cahill, added: “I want from
him this focus when he is playing.
“At moment he is working with
us, and I think, yes, he will be here
till the summer.”
Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri
may still want to “kill” Aboubakar
Kamara, but after his goal he said
he would only do it “softly”.
Kamara apologised to his
manager and the club for insisting
on taking a late penalty against
Huddersfield at the weekend, only
to miss it.
But after scoring yesterday,
Ranieri said: “For me the incident
is finished and I have no regrets.
I have no grudges.
“I still want to kill him, but only
softly. He apologised immediately
to me and the club.
“My players are like a son to me,
so I will kill him, but afterwards I
will give him some oxygen.”

NORWICH boss Daniel
Farke was furious his side

was a clear penalty.
He appealed furiously
after 10 minutes when
Brentford’s Julian Jeanvier
tangled with Teemu Pukki
in the box, but referee
Gavin Ward waved play on.
“I’m still a bit annoyed
about several decisions
against us,’’ said Farke.

where it was 100 per cent
a foul in the area.”

point with a late header
from Timm Klose (left).
Farke added: “In the end
it was a good point. It’s
difficult to turn the game,
especially when you are
without several key players
before the game, then you
have injuries during it.’’
Brentford showed no fear
against their high-flying
opponents and took the
lead on 22 minutes when
Jeanvier headed home a
Said Benrahma corner. He
almost added a second
after the break but was
denied by an excellent
save from Tim Krul.
Klose finally made the
breakthrough for Norwich
on 83 minutes, his header
far too powerful for Bees
keeper Daniel Bentley.
Brentford boss Thomas
Frank said: “I’m very happy
with that performance,
especially the first half –
it’s how we want to play
home and away.
“Unfortunately a small
mistake cost us, with
Henrik Dalsgaard losing
his man and then Daniel
Bentley could do better.”

Rowett vow Dack racks
to stop rot up a dozen

Stoke..0 Bristol City..2
UNDER-PRESSURE Stoke boss Gary
Rowett has vowed to take the fans’
criticism on the chin.
Rowett was subjected to chants of, “You
don’t know what you’re doing” in a toxic
atmosphere inside the Bet365 Stadium
after his side were beaten by Bristol City.
Goals from Famara Diedhiou and
Callum O’Dowda left Stoke eight points
off the play-off pace and Rowett said:
“I am feeling frustrated as well because
I know we have better players.
“I have to accept the criticism because
we are not in the position we want to be
in. I will take it on the chin and we have
to win the games to turn it around.”
Niki Maenpaa pulled off a fine save to
keep out a Benik Afobe penalty after
Bruno Martins Indi was brought down in
the sixth minute.
And James McClean and Tom Ince both
tested the Finnish keeper inside the
opening 30 minutes as the Potters kept
up the pressure.
But Bristol City were ahead in the 39th
minute when Diedhiou powered a header
home from Jack Hunt’s cross.
Stoke spurned more chances after the
break and O’Dowda made the game safe
when Stoke failed to clear Hunt’s cross
nine minutes from time.
Delighted Robins boss Lee Johnson
said: “Stoke are a good side with good
individuals.
“They have spent a lot of money and
have a Premier League squad. We had to
win the one-v-one battles.”

Blackburn..2 West Brom..1
BLACKBURN striker Bradley Dack lived
up to his £20m rating as he bagged his
12th goal of the season.
West Brom are one of the clubs
targeting the hitman, 25, and he put on a
masterful display against the Baggies.
Crystal Palace and West Ham are also
keeping an eye on Dack, who doubled
Rovers’ advantage with a powerful strike
after Charlie Mulgrew had scored direct
from a corner for the second time this
season in the 53rd minute.
Dack then appeared to trip Harvey
Barnes for the penalty that saw Jay
Rodriguez pull one back in the 63rd
minute.
And he looked unhappy when he was
subbed, increasing speculation about a
potential move.
Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is hoping
Dack’s head won’t be turned and said:
“Bradley enjoys it here, but we have to
show that our ambition matches his. We
aim to strive and develop and we hope he
wants to continue on our journey.”
On Mulgrew’s stunner – he bent one in
against Bristol City too – Mowbray added:
“It’s hard for some people to believe that
Mulgrew meant his corner to go in but we
have worked on it in training.”
The Baggies, who had Jake Livermore
sent off for hauling down Lewis Travis,
lost for the first time in 10 games.
But boss Darren Moore refused to “cry
over spilt milk” and blame festive fixture
fatigue, saying: “It is our fourth game in
11 days but it’s the same for everybody.”

JAMIE JOY: Vardy fires
home the only goal
of the game, much to the
delight of Claude Puel (inset)
VARDY TURNS IT
UPSIDE-DOWN
From Back Page
concern.” Everton boss Marco Silva
admits his players are worried by their
slump.
The Toffees have taken just five points
from their last eight games and their
four-match winless home run is their
worst since Roberto Martinez was
sacked in April 2016.
“I felt we were too nervous
and anxious, and there is no
reason,” said Silva after his
side were booed off at the
end.
“When you play in this
way with easy mistakes,
the bad things come to you
and that’s what happened
with the goal we conceded.
“We gave them the chance
to do what they came to do.
After that, if you were anxious or
nervous, you will be more so.
“We didn’t play with enough quality to
change the score.”
It may have been a new year, new start
for Vardy in 2019, but it was the same old
Everton.
They have 27 points after 21 games – the
same tally they had at this stage last
season with Sam Allardyce in charge.
Under Silva they have played some
exciting football at times, which is an
improvement on last term, but this
wasn’t one of those times. Jonjoe
Kenny, a surprise starter ahead of
Seamus Coleman, came close to a
spectacular opener when he fired against
the woodwork.
Leicester were the better team but they
were hardly at their best with passes
constantly going astray.
But a mistake from Everton
defender Michael Keane in the
58th minute allowed Ricardo
Pereira to slip Vardy in.
Vardy beat his former
international team-mate
Jordan Pickford with a
clinical low strike with his
left foot for his seventh
goal of the campaign.
Silva turned to Bernard
and then the ineffective Cenk
Tosun but there was no hint of
an equaliser for the Toffees.
They didn’t deserve one, either.
Now the Everton boss must turn their
form around or 2019 will be another
year to forget for the blue half of
Merseyside.
EVERTON (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Kenny, Keane,

SILVA TITLE CHARGE
BERNARDO SILVA admits the
pressure is on Manchester City in
their title crunch against Liverpool.
City host Jurgen Klopp’s
table-toppers tomorrow.
Having allowed Liverpool to open
up a seven-point lead, Pep
Guardiola has warned his
players that dropping any
more points will be fatal for
their hopes of retaining
their crown.
Playmaker Silva (left)
said: “Is it must win? A
little bit, yes. We know
the pressure is a bit
more on us because if we
don’t win it will be difficult
to go after them.
“We have to think we have to
win every game possible to try
to reach them, to close the gap.
“We know we are seven points
behind and if we win it will be only
four. Seven or four is very
different but we’ll put some
pressure into them.
“They’re unbeaten until now and
we’ll try to end that.” City know
exactly how Liverpool feel having
■ by ADRIAN KAJUMBA
been in the same position last
season, when Guardiola’s side
went into the New Year having
made an unbeaten start to their
league campaign.
That ended at Anfield in
mid-January when Liverpool
became the first side to beat them.
Silva said: “They’ve had a lot of
clean sheets, an impressive
defence. The front three, everyone
knows how good they are.
“They work a lot. The midfielders
work a lot, they press a lot. We
know them and they know us.”
City will be pleased to see the
back of 2018 after losing three of
their final five games in December.
Striker Sergio Aguero added:
“December didn’t pan out the way
we wanted and we’ve got more
ground to make up, so, yes, that
makes the game more important.
“But we’re only in January and
there are still plenty of games
ahead of us. From the looks of it,
there are three or four teams
angling to win the title.”
From Back Page
League outfit Kane had never
scored against.
But his early spot of luck
gave him the 100 per cent
record of scoring against 28
top-flight outfits.
Pochettino said: “That was
important for him and for us
because it set us on our way
and also was special for him,
with it being the only team he
hadn’t scored against.
“I’m so pleased for the
players after the Wolves result.
It wasn’t a problem of us being
tired, it was concentration.
“But the players showed
massive energy today.”
Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock
urged the Premier League to
make Tottenham finish their
season at Wembley rather than
move into their new stadium.
Warnock feels other clubs in
the relegation fight could
benefit from Tottenham getting
used to a new environment.
He said: “They have made
that many cock-ups now with
the timing, the Premier League
should now force them to play
at Wembley for the rest of
season.
“I don’t think there should be
a chance of any advantage to
any of our opponents really.
“We wanted to put them
under pressure after their last
result but it was a stroll.”

HARRY KANE and Spurs took
just three minutes of their first
game of 2019 to show they are
still a force in the title race.
A shock 3-1 home loss to Wolves prompted
claims their chances had gone before the
Christmas decorations had come down.
But there was no sign of choking here as
Kane, Christian Eriksen and Heung-min
Son lit up the Cardiff City Stadium with
first-half goals.
Their triple blitz in the first 26 minutes
silenced the noisy locals and outspoken
home boss Neil Warnock.
Neither he nor his side had any response
to Spurs’ class as the visitors took the lead
in just the third minute.
Leaders Liverpool still look a good bet for
the title but Mauricio Pochettino’s men are
back in second place and determined to
push them all the way.
Not only are their star men delivering but
even fringe men like Moussa Sissoko are

GARRY MONK insists
Birmingham cannot afford
to sell players to ease their
financial troubles.
Monk’s side kept
themselves on the fringes
of the play-off race as an
outstanding goalkeeping
display from Lee Camp
earned them a draw, Che
Adams cancelling out
Steven Fletcher’s opener.
But all of Birmingham’s
worries are off the pitch,
where they face the threat
of a points deduction for
breaching Financial Fair
Play rules.
Monk said: “We’ve got a
small squad as it is. We
can’t afford to lose any of
our players.
“If anything, the plan was
always to add players, not
to take away, because we
haven’t got the squad to
lose players.
“Obviously with the
restrictions that we’re
under, that doesn’t really
help us.”
Wednesday were last
night still waiting to
confirm Steve Bruce as
their new boss.
Caretaker Lee Bullen said
there was no guarantee a
deal would be done in time
for Saturday’s FA Cup
third-round home game
against Luton.
“It’s in the hands of the
chairman,” he said.
“I’m planning to do the
Luton game, but things can
change very quickly.”
NEW CHEER!
Kane quickly puts Spurs back on track
rising to the challenge and the big midfielder
put on an outstanding display here.
He was involved in two of Spurs’ first-half
goals with positive runs and passes.
And there was plenty of confidence and
quality about the visitors’ slick play all over
the park as they pulled Cardiff apart.
Pochettino’s side took the lead with their
first attack. Kane began the move and found
Kieran Trippier on the right.
Home captain Sean Morrison could only
smash his cross straight at Kane and it
ricocheted past Neil Etheridge in the home
goal for a slightly fortunate opener, his 18th
goal of the season.
It means the England striker has now
scored against all 28 of the opponents he
has ever faced in the Premier League after
notching against the Bluebirds for the first
time in his career.
Cardiff responded with a couple of crosses
from the left from Josh Murphy but it was
classy Tottenham who scored again in the
12th minute after a well-worked move and
superb finish from Eriksen.
The Dane picked the ball up on the corner
of the box after a break which saw Kane feed
Sissoko on the right before Son moved the
ball on to Eriksen.
He was closed down by Bruno Ecuele
Manga and Harry Arter but created space
with a clever drag back to wrong-foot the pair
and hit a low right-foot shot into the bottom
corner for his sixth goal this term.
The contest was over by the 26th minute
when Son made it 3-0.
Impressive
He was released into the box by Kane after
a driving run forward by the impressive
Sissoko.
Son then beat Morrison to fire home a low
right-foot shot into the far corner – his 11th
goal of the season.
After the break, Spurs might have extended
their lead but top scorer Kane fired over and
had other shots blocked.
Son had a right-foot shot saved by a
combined effort from Sol Bamba and keeper
Etheridge.
Sissoko was still running hard and pinging
cross-field passes in the final minutes as he
also charged forward before shooting one
effort over the top.
But Spurs never had to hit top gear in the
second half as Cardiff seemed content to
avoid further embarrassment and a major
hit to their goal difference.
It also means Tottenham have followed
Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester
United in winning in Wales this term.
And there was more than enough in this
display to suggest they should have high
hopes for the rest of 2019 if they maintain
these clinical, ruthless standards.
Cardiff, who host Huddersfield in their
next Premier League game, have eyes on 17th
place come May.
It is likely to go to the wire but with some
shrewd additions they could also be capable
of achieving their ambitions.

UNITED boss Chris Wilder
hailed record-breaker Billy
Sharp after he became the
top goalscorer in the EFL
this century.
Sharp had drawn level
with Rickie Lambert on 219
goals against Blackburn on
Saturday and broke the
record yesterday, sweeping
home in the 54th minute.
David McGoldrick and
Mark Duffy had given the
Blades a 2-0 lead before
Sharp made history, his
16th this season and 220th
since 2000.
Wilder said: “He has been
outstanding for me. He just
keeps going. He does a job
for us, out of possession
and in possession.”
United were rampant at
times, although former
Blades player Lee Evans,
whose loan only turned
permanent on the morning
of the game, slid the ball
wide in front of goal.
Defeat leaves Wigan four
points from the relegation
zone after one win and six
points from 13 games.
Manager Paul Cook felt
the game turned on fine
margins, saying: “We have
one great opportunity but
unfortunately we find
ourselves going in at
half-time behind.
“Second half the game
went away from us.”

UNAI EMERY has vowed he
will not be swayed by the
Arsenal boo boys.
Emery was loudly jeered
after replacing Alexandre
Lacazette with Aaron
Ramsey just after Fulham
had pulled the score back
to 2-1.
But the move paid off as
the Wales international
scored almost instantly to
set Arsenal back on their
way to victory.
“I understand the
supporters but I need to do
my work,” said Emery, after
his side cut the gap on
fourth-placed Chelsea to
two points.
“Every supporter can
have a different opinion on
what tactically we can do.
“In my career I have
different moments when I
made similar decisions.
“We need also to decide
with a very cold mind in
order to make the best
decision.”
With the transfer window
open and Ramsey out of
contract at the end of the
season, any goal now could
be Ramsey’s last, with

pressure on Claude Puel.
The Leicester boss claims he

made him favourite for the chop,
despite being seventh in the table
following festive wins over
Chelsea and Manchester City.
Vardy did his bit for his boss
with a second-half winner at
Everton before celebrating in style.
“I’ve had that in the locker for a
while and saved it for a special
occasion, and what better
occasion – a new year, a new me,”
said the former England striker.
“It’s been a great Christmas for
us. Now we need to keep pushing
on and getting the points to keep
us where we are in the table and
then push on even further.”
