RYANAIR has been named
Britain’s worst airline for
the sixth year in a row.
A sky-high 70% of
passengers vowed to never
travel with the much-hated
budget carrier, according
to a consumer watchdog.
Travellers gave the
under-fire company the
lowest possible ranking for
boarding, seat comfort,
food and drink, and cabin
environment, the annual
Which? survey revealed.
Public anger at Ryanair
rocketed after it ruined the
holiday plans of thousands
in 2018 by cancelling
flights and then refusing to
pay compensation.
One angry holidaymaker
said: “There are too many
rules. I worry about getting
caught with hidden costs.”
Ryanair failed to leave
the runway, coming 19th
out of 19 operators.
Rival easyJet, on the
other hand, came 11th.
It soared ahead of its
cheap rival, and even
British Airways, which
only managed 15th.
The others at the bottom
of the short-haul ranking
were Thomas Cook
Airlines.
In 2017, British Airways
promised improvements
after scoring just 52%
and 50% for its
long-haul services.
At the top of the pile,
Jet2 impressed with its
service, seats and
boarding, earning a
customer score of 75%.

Rory Boland said:
“Ryanair has spent the last
two years cancelling

Ryanair insisted

TRACK FROST: Train heads through cold
BIG FREEZE AS WINTER FINALLY BITES
BRITAIN will plunge
into the freezer with
one of the winter’s
coldest weekends.
After weeks of balmy
weather, temperatures
are set to plummet.
The most chilly night so
far saw mercury plunge
to just -10C in Braemar,
Aberdeens.
A cold snap of -6.1C was
recorded in Oxfordshire.
Met Office spokeswoman
Nicola Maxey warned that
the conditions will be felt
all over the country today.
The forecaster predicted:
“Where we get the breaks
in the cloud for sunshine,
® by RUTH McKEE
we will also get the coldest
temperatures at night.”
She added that London
will be hit by lows of -3C,
while Newcastle and Manchester will barely scrape
above freezing.
Today a thick bank of
cloud will roll over Britain,
bringing a chill drizzle.
Meteorologists predict a
slight respite tomorrow as
the Arctic front is chased
by a low pressure area into
the English channel.
But that could spark gale
force winds which will then
batter Scotland.
The Met Office has already
issued
yellow
weather
warnings for gale force
winds across the north of
Scotland.
Meanwhile, Britain has
been warned of a megatsunami that could wipe
out towns along the coast.
Professor Stephen Sparks,
of the University of Bristol,
said Cornwall and Devon
would be battered if the
Cumbre Vieja volcano in
the Canary Islands erupts.
He warned: “When you
have volcanic islands sticking out of the sea, they’re
very unstable.
“You can get gigantic
landslides when part of the
island essentially collapses
into the ocean. And you can
get tsunamis from that and
they’re quite significant.”
And British tourists have
been told to avoid southern
Thailand as forecasters
warn a tropical storm
sweeps across swathes of
the country.
Storm Pabuk could spark
devastating landslides and
tidal surges in the region.
The Foreign Office has
warned Brits against all
but essential travel to
provinces on the ThailandMalaysia border, including
popular tourist hotspots
such as Pattani, Yala and
Narathiwat.

MURDER BID: Chafer
New life
term for
twisted
attacker
A CHILD killer who tried
to murder a woman in a
row over a garden rake
while on release from
prison has been given a
new life sentence.
Stephen Chafer was
jailed for life for sexually
assaulting Lorraine Holt,
three, and then knifing her
to death in 1979.
And last year he launched
a frenzied knife attack on
Fay Mills, 60.
Mrs Mills, who has
dementia, was so badly
injured that police believed
she was already dead when
they arrived at her home in
Peterborough, Cambs.
Last month Chafer, now
57, was convicted of the
attempted murder of Mrs
Mills and assaulting her
neighbour Mark Patchett,
who tried to go to her aid.
Judge David Farrell QC
told him at Cambridge
Crown Court yesterday:
“The worrying aspect is, as
with the previous murder,
that you have attacked a
particularly vulnerable
person.”
In 1979 Chafer sexually
assaulted Lorraine in
Derby before stabbing her
39 times.
Judge Farrell said he
would be 74 before he could
be considered for release
from prison.

LOTTSA LUCK: Frances and Patrick yesterday
Jackpot pair will ‘change lives’ of 50 rellies and pals
THE couple who won
the £115million EuroMillions jackpot have
pledged to give a lot
of it away.
Frances and Patrick Connolly will dish out millions
of pounds to 50 of their
close friends and family.
They vowed that they have
“no intentions of keeping all
that money” for themselves.
But mum-of-three Frances,
52, said the couple from the
small town of Moira in Co

themselves to luxury sports

She said it will be “a lot of

gifts. She said: “This is a massive sum of money and we
want it to have a huge impact
on the lives of other people we
know and love as well as on
our future too.”
The couple became the fourth
biggest Lotto winners in UK
history when they won the
New Year’s Day draw with a
last-minute lucky dip ticket.
But when Patrick, 54, logged
into their lottery account and
realised what had happened
the pair simply “sat and stared
at each other for 10 minutes”
before celebrating with “a hug
and a cup of tea”. He said: “We
really didn’t know what to do
or how to react and we didn’t
sleep a wink that night. We
rang Camelot at 8am in the
morning to verify the win.
“Then it started to dawn on
us that it was true even though
it still hasn’t really sunk in.”
The pair have also pledged to

A sudden cold snap will coincide with a

Freezing conditions can aggravate

The NHS will face even more demand

At a time of the year when hospitals
really are struggling, surely more can be
done.
Critics have partly blamed staffing
shortages.
But NHS England insists the overall

There are no easy solutions.
And whatever the reason for the difficulties, one thing is for sure.

The attack happened on the 12.58pm from

victim’s son would have been nearby when
his father was fatally wounded.
“This would have been an horrific and hugely traumatic event to have witnessed and we
are providing him with as much support as

Police said the suspect is a black man, in his
20s to 30s, approximately 6ft tall and of slim
build with a beard, believed to be dressed all
in black with white trainers.
Last night, officers appealed for anyone who
may have seen the killer to call 999.
The actions of the guards and driver were

KAT’S LIFE: She
is distraught after
finding Alfie seemingly
dead at bottom of the stairs
® by PETER DYKE
EASTENDERS bosses
have poked fun at
their own storylines
after three leading
characters were killed
off – and then came
back to life.
Twitter wags had already
claimed they should give
Walford residents medical
training on testing pulses.
In the past 10 days, TV viewers
have seen Alfie Moon (Shane
Richie) knocked down the
stairs and declared dead by his
estranged wife Kat (Jessie
Wallace).
But then his “lifeless” body –
which was hidden in the lounge
– vanished as he went on the
run with his lovechild Cherry
Slater only to re-appear days
later alive and well.
Bride-to-be Mel Owen (Tamzin
Outhwaite) was strangled by
groom Ray Kelly on her
wedding day and seemed a
goner as she lay limp in the
living room.
However, an hour later she
turned up in her bridal
gown ready for the
ceremony.
Then baddie Ray
(Sean
Mahon)
was
knocked
over by Mel’s
car and buried
in the woods.
But minutes
later he rose
up from his
dirty grave and
grabbed her –
before being shot
by son Hunter
(Charlie Winter).
The BBC’s official
Twitter
account
for
EastEnders posted a tonguein-cheek
message
saying:
“Hopes for 2019... Walford
residents undergo training on
how to determine whether a
person is living or dead.”
Yet some fans think the soap
has lost the plot having so many
“dead”
Walford
residents
suddenly brought back to life.
Social media comments in the
past week have included “Why
does no-one in Eastenders
know how to check a pulse?”,
“Over Xmas three people have
been ‘murdered’ when they are
actually still alive. How stupid
are they?” and “That’s three
times in the space of just over
a week someone had died only
to actually be alive”.

KEVIN Hart is considering

Ellen DeGeneres.
The US comedian pulled
out amid controversy over
homophobic tweets posted
by him in 2009 and 2011.
The 39-year-old funnyman
initially rejected a demand
by the Academy for him to

sorry when the offending
tweets first emerged.
Hart was interviewed by
Ellen DeGeneres for her
chat show aired yesterday.
DeGeneres, who is gay,
tweeted a clip from the
interview in which Hart
again apologised for his
tweets, but said he did not
want the Oscars awards

He said: “I do not want to
stand on that stage and
make that night about me
and my past, when you
have got people who have
worked hard to step on that
stage for the first time and
receive a reward.”
DeGeneres replied: “I

because I know you.”
She revealed that she
called the Academy to try
to help them re-hire Hart,
who confirmed that he is
“evaluating” his options.

21 KIDS & COUNTING?
YOU MUST HAVE GOT
HER PREGNANT AT 13
® by JACK ANDREWS
BRITAIN’S biggest
family faced a TV
backlash when viewers discovered their
“creepy” backstory.
The Radfords, who have
21 children, appeared on
Channel 4’s 21 Kids And
Counting as they welcomed their latest child.
A “PARANOID” husband
has been jailed for shooting
his wife in the head with
an air rifle.
Lloyd Williams downed a
bottle and a half of Baileys
before firing the weapon.
The 35-year-old, from
Newport, Gwent,
pleaded guilty to
unlawful wounding.
He believed his wife was
“getting people to come to
the address to assault
him”, Newport Crown
Court was told.
Williams was jailed for
two years and six months.
BRIDE’S IN TIERS
A BRIDE had her caterer
arrested after she cut into
her wedding cake to find it
was made from polystyrene
in Pasig City, Philippines.
BIG DAY: Renewing wedding vows
But much of the audience
was stunned when it was
revealed that Sue was just 13
when she first became pregnant by her now-husband
Noel – who was then 18.
The documentary told
how 43-year-old Sue was
expecting her first child “29
years ago”.
Hundreds of viewers took
to Twitter to slam the
“weird” and “creepy” news
– blasting it as illegal.
One said: “I can’t get over
the fact that an 18-year-old
got a 13-year-old girl pregnant I mean that’s a crime!”
Another wrote: “They are

fact when he was 18 he got a

A third added: “How old
does a guy have to be before
getting a 13-year-old girl
pregnant is creepy at best
(irrespective of whether
they get married and stay
together)?”
The couple, who live with
their kids in a former care
home at Morecambe, Lancs,
were married four years
after the birth of first child,
Chris, 29, in 1989.
Their second child, Sophie,
was born when Sue was 17.
At the end of the episode, it
was revealed that she had
given birth to baby number
21, Bonnie Raye, after just 12
minutes in labour.
The show highlighted the
financial plight the family is
set to face caring for yet
another child. Some viewers
blasted the “burden” they
were putting on public services and one said: “I don’t
get what’s inspiring about
this family.”
But Sue stressed that the
family were not on benefits.
Noel runs a pie shop with
help from daughter Chloe,
21, which they say funds
their lifestyle – including
spending more than £5,000
on Christmas presents.

GOAL
The star had to say goodbye to Boyzone so they could
all get on with their lives.
Ronan, who has temporarily left his Magic radio show,
told me: “I’m making another
solo album and I want to get
back to the radio.
“But it’s like spinning plates,
we have to park these things so
we can be Boyzone today then
go back to that tomorrow.”
Ronan’s follow-up to 2016 LP,
Time Of My Life, is expected
later this year, while Boyzone
dates are still ongoing.
Although the tour kicks off in
Brighton on February 5, they
still don’t know exactly when it
will end.
Ronan explained: “We are still discussing when the last show will be.
“We have a long time to decide
over the year.
“It would be lovely to have a
moment where we go, ‘That was
amazing, that’s our last show’.
“Whether we film it or what I don’t
know.”
When they do finally call it a day
all four lads
have plenty
of projects
they want to be getting on with.
Ronan said: “Shane is writing and
driving on TV shows.
“Mick is in the studio producing
music, Keith is on the road and
also doing film work and in the TV
world.
“So we have plenty to get on
with.”
But despite their promises, it may
not be categorically the end of
Boyzone after all.
When forced on the
subject of it definitely
being the
last we see of the band, Ronan said:
“For now it’s the end.
“This is it. We are hanging up our
dancing shoes.
“Go out on a high.”
He added: “We don’t want it to
dwindle.
“We don’t want to be a band that
faded out of existence.”
See you for another reunion in

NELSON Mandela House
should be a “cultural heritage site” says Only Fools
And Horses’ greatest fan.
The block of flats that was home
to Del Boy, Rodney and Grandad
has been slated for demolition to
make way for new buildings.
Residents and fans have been left
gutted by the decision.
Super fan James Shackleton, who
owns the original Reliant Regal van
from the show’s first season, said:
“They’d be plonkers to knock it
down.
“It makes no sense to knock
it down. It should be

“I got the car about
28 years ago.
“I was organising
the funeral for the
owner and he didn’t
have the money to
pay for it.
“This was the collateral he had so that’s
how I got it.
“It’s the original
one.”
The car was registered in 1966, 15 years
before the Only Fools

And Horses pilot. It was one of many
used in the show, but James, 62, has
lent it back to the BBC now and again
and ended up with a Del Boy coat, hat
and briefcase.
Residents of the block in Ealing,
west London, which is 13 miles from
the Peckham setting of the show, are
unhappy about the redevelopment.
Brenda Hoult, a carer, 49, said: “I
think it’s a right Del Boy scam to
knock the tower down.
“It’s all about making money,
selling the new flats.
Her brother Michael, 59,
said: “I reckon some right
Del Boys have lived here
over the years.”
Patrick

a
59-year-old

did not realise that he
was living in the original Mandela House until
he saw it on the telly.
He said: “I thought
Nelson Mandela House
was in south London.
“But I was watching

MORE than 400
people filed for
divorce over the
festive period –
including 13 on
Christmas Day.
It is a period
when tensions in
marriages are
known to blow up.
One of the most
famous fictional
bust-ups was between
Den and Angie on
EastEnders in 1986 when
viewers saw Den file for
divorce on Christmas Day.
Last year, for the first
time, spouses seeking to
end their marriage were
able to complete the
process online.
Statistics released by the
Ministry of Justice show
that more than 23,000
online divorce applications
have been made in England
and Wales since April.
Internet platforms were
also used to lodge 39,250
civil money claims, 7,687
probate applications and
1,431 fare evasion pleas.
Justice minister Lucy
Frazer said: “These online
services are already

“It’s encouraging to see
people are reporting that
these services work well
for them and are a better fit
around their busy lives.”

And he is not alone, as these amazing

So when it comes to the survival of the

WOKING striker Jake Hyde is
desperate to dump Watford pal
Adrian Mariappa out of the FA Cup –
and take the shirt off his back for
good measure.
The pair have been best mates for more than a
decade since being introduced by mutual friends
when Hyde was an apprentice at Swindon and
Mariappa played for Reading.
Now Cards hitman Hyde, 28, who scored the
second-round winner at former club Swindon,
cannot wait for the chance to put one over on his
mate.
Watford travel to play the National League

is a great guy but I am looking forward to scoring

had until I found some old photos.
“If anything, our close relationship will make
us both more fired up because it is about
bragging rights. If he scores a goal, he will
never stop reminding me about that!
“Whoever is picking him up from corners I need
to make sure they know whatever happens they do
not let him score.
“I am a big Chelsea fan. I was hoping we’d pull
them out but as soon as we drew Watford that was
the first thing that came into my head.”
While Mariappa has captained Watford in the
Premier League and turned out for Jamaica, Hyde
has spent the majority of his career in non-League.
He also works as a personal trainer, but insists he
is not envious of his mate.
“I have the utmost respect for Maps,” he said. “To
get to his early 30s and still be doing the business
in the Premier League shows how well he’s done.
“You only make it at that top level through sheer
hard work and dedication. He has not seen me play
as much as I have seen him, so I am going to try
and use that to my advantage. I know his game a
lot better than he knows mine.
“It is going to be a great day. Not just because it is
Watford but because it is Maps as well.”
Hyde insists the Surrey part-timers can pull off
an even bigger giant-killing than in the last round,
despite being the lowest-ranked team left.
The former England C international added: “It
was nice to go back to Swindon and have a
successful day.
“We have beaten higher teams all the way
through to get to where we are. We will show
Watford respect but won’t show any fear.
“It is a great opportunity to show what a
good side we are against a top-10 team in the
Premier League.
“We have won seven games in a row so confidence is high and they are the ones with everything to lose. We have nothing to lose.
“This is our cup final, but let’s see how far we can
go. The fact it is at home and they have to come to
our place will be a great leveller.”

YOUTH CLASH:

has described his cup record
as “absolutely hopeless” ahead
of their sold-out FA Cup clash
with Watford.
The sixth-tier Cards, who sit
second in the National League

club left in the third round.
Dowson, who guided his
in-form team past League Two
side Swindon in the last round,
offered a frank assessment
of his previous experience of cup runs.
“When I got
interviewed for the
job, I came in and
said, ‘At my three

“I don’t think they were too
impressed actually. I probably
didn’t sell myself very well.
“The bottom line is I’ve
always been useless in the
cups, except for this time.”
Almost 5,700 supporters will
pack into Kingfield Stadium
for tomorrow’s televised
clash with the Premier
League Hornets.
The capacity crowd
will be Woking’s
highest attendance in
22 years, since they
were beaten 2-1 by
Coventry in a
third-round replay in
February 1997.
Dowson says he is
relying on intel on Watford
from one of his assistants,
Sky Sports commentator
Martin Tyler (left).
“Martin speaks very highly of
their manager,” he said.
“I don’t know the players
because I don’t watch

SERIOUSLY
football
INTERVIEW
■ by PAUL BROWN
CUP MISERY
SUITS REDS
LIVERPOOL need to go out of the FA Cup
as quickly as possible if they want to win
the league, so their game at Wolves on
Monday could be one to watch.
I hope Wolves take it seriously and don’t
send out the reserves. They’re at home and
they’re not in relegation trouble so they
should have a go.
For me, that’s what all those teams in the
top half of the Premier League but not
threatening the top six should do.
If I had to tip someone to win the cup,
I would go for a team like Everton, for
exactly that reason.
I’ve asked the question before and I’ll ask
it again – would they rather finish seventh
or win a trophy?
They’re not going to get relegated and
they’re not going to finish in the top six.
So have a go. Try to win a trophy. Don’t
rest everyone.
The draw wins you the trophy but if they
get through and end up playing a top-six
team at home, I would still fancy them if
they play their strongest team.
Leicester and West Ham should do the
same thing. They could be dark horses too.
I’d be very disappointed if those three
teams don’t take it seriously.
But I’ve probably given them all the kiss
of death now!
IT’S TIME TO
STRIKE, ROY
CRYSTAL PALACE will be making a big
mistake if they don’t secure a striker in the
transfer window.
They couldn’t get Dominic Solanke from
Liverpool but that shouldn’t put them off
looking to improve their firepower.
I thought Jermain Defoe would have been
perfect for them. They were crying out for
a striker of his ilk but unfortunately he is
now going to Rangers, where I suspect he
will score lots of goals.
Defoe is intelligent, makes good runs and
scores goals. He ticks all the boxes and
wasn’t getting a game at Bournemouth.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson can’t risk
missing out, though.
He and his board would be foolish to rely
on the other teams being worse than they
are – and you can bet that their rivals will
all be moving in the market.
I think Fulham, Cardiff and Southampton
will all be making signings
because the threat of
relegation is so big.
And Palace can’t afford to
stand still in case one of
them pulls off a big transfer.
It’s too late for
Huddersfield. There’s
no point them
spending big
money. They’re
not turning that
around.
Some of the
teams at the
top of the table
need to be
busy as well.
Arsenal need
more than just
a defender and
Manchester City
should be trying
to find cover for
Fernandinho.
There could be

HOTSHOT:

Defoe was

CALLUM WILSON won’t stop
Chelsea playing boring football
– they need Marko Arnautovic.
I’m not surprised Maurizio Sarri has
demanded a striker this week because they
need one badly and they could probably get
Wilson from Bournemouth for £30m.
He’s a willing runner and he would help them
stretch the game. At the moment it’s all so slow
and predictable and the whole game is being
played in a 30-yard space.
There is no movement at all and everyone
just stays in their own position, so it’s easy
for teams to stop and it could cost Chelsea
a top-four finish.
Wilson would help because he makes good
runs and he’s scoring goals right now. Olivier
Giroud is just a target man and he’s injured
anyway.
As for Alvaro Morata, I honestly
don’t know what he does. I don’t
know what the Spaniard
(right) gives you – and Eden
Hazard is just not a striker.
But as much as Wilson
(below) would help, I don’t
think he’s the answer. He’s
a good stop-gap but he’s
not going to guarantee you
top four.
West Ham’s star man
Arnautovic might, though.
He is a proven goalscorer and
he gives you something different.
He can make things happen and do
something special.
His agent has been making noises about him
leaving as well and Chelsea could probably get
him for £40m because of his age.
They’ve just spent nearly £60m on Christian Pulisic. You pay for potential these days
but he’s just a kid and he’s not coming until
the summer anyway.
He might be a big hit for Chelsea one day. But
they need players now, not for three years’ time.
They should go for Arnautovic.
I think they’ve bought Pulisic because they
know Hazard is off in the summer and they’re
starting to plan for the future without him.
I’d be shocked if Hazard was still at Chelsea
next season. The way he’s playing, you just
know Real Madrid are going to come in for him.
If he really wanted to stay he’d have signed a
new contract by now, but he hasn’t. Pulisic is a
good player. He did well for the USA against
England and has been doing well in Germany.
But Chelsea signed him now
because they knew that if they
waited until after Hazard goes,
Borussia Dortmund would
have charged them extra.
Trouble is you are buying
potential. He might come
in and be quality. He might
not. You just don’t know.
Losing Hazard should
terrify Chelsea fans. He’s
their whole team at the
minute. You’d have to
spend £80m to get someone
anywhere near as good.
Will they do that? Who knows? They
could pay the wages and London is a big draw
but they would have to be in the Champions
League.
That’s why this month is such a big one. They
need to sign the kind of player who is going to
get them into the Champions League.
I actually think they might throw everything
at winning the Europa League. Sarri has never
won a trophy and he knows if you don’t win
something at Chelsea, it’s probably game over.
I think it could be another Manchester United
situation, where they need the Europa League
more than anyone else.
They are a million miles away from winning
the league. They have one of the best defences
in the division but don’t score enough goals.
They’ve got some decisions to make with
other players on big money too. I would keep
them all until the end of the season but it
looks like Cesc Fabregas will go.
David Luiz, 31, probably won’t be at Chelsea
next season either. His contract is running
down and they’re not giving him another big
one at his age.
I hope Ruben Loftus-Cheek stays. He should.
He’ll get more of a chance next season. He’s
good enough.
Don’t mess the kid around, he needs to play.

OLD boy LOOSE CHIPS

Three times a winner at the

his ability and showed all his old

In a fiercely-competitive affair he
looks overpriced at around the 12-1

“SANTINI is easily the worst result in
the book in the RSA Chase at the Festival.
We have taken over 60 per cent of stakes
on this selection. In the Gold Cup, with so
many others proving disappointing this
season, last season’s RSA winner
PRESENTING PERCY continues to
attract support and is now our 4-1 clear
favourite.
“Others who have been well backed
include PAISLEY PARK, in what looks a
wide-open Stayers’ Hurdle. He has done
nothing wrong this season.
LALOR has proved popular
with punters, particularly
after his Cheltenham
success in November

the Cheltenham Festival are CHAMP in
the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle and Might

him pretty heavily at as big as 25-1 after he
won at Perth and he’s now the clear 5-1
favourite.
“But even though MIGHT BITE is also
a huge liability, we’re pretty comfortable
about it and think he could help us off the
canvas after his disappointing effort in
the King George. The chunky wagers
were coming at around the 7-1 or 8-1 mark
but he’s now drifted like a barge to 12-1.
“In the National, VINTAGE CLOUDS
is the one. He’s been backed at both 40-1
and 33-1 and is now 25-1, which is our cosecond favourite.”
NICOLA
MCGEADY
“SANTINI in the RSA Chase has been
the long-time ante-post favourite for
the race. He was beaten in the Kauto
Star Novices’ Chase at Kempton over
Christmas. However, punters have not
given up on him and he continues to be
well supported (already 7-2 from 4-1 since
his defeat) with the return to a stiffer
track likely to suit.
“Faugheen fell at Leopardstown over
Christmas behind Apple’s Jade, but given
connections chose to run him over three
miles at that meeting, the Stayers’ Hurdle
at Cheltenham looks the likely target and
punters are backing him to roll back the
years.
“ROAD TO RESPECT got no luck
whatsoever when beaten at Leopardstown
over Christmas, having been hampered a
few times. He finished fourth in the Gold
Cup last year when testing conditions
would not have suited and punters are
hoping for a drier forecast this year.
“Our biggest loser at the moment in the
Grand National is MALL DINI. Only
seen once this season, it looks like his
campaign may be planned around Aintree
rather than Cheltenham this year. He’s
run once over an inadequate trip without
headgear on so expect to see the
blinkers back on in the spring.”
BARRY
ORR
“W
“WE
have
some
significant
liabilities on our Sportsbook.
CHAMP is one of them in the
Ballymore Hurdle. He is now 5-1
from an initial 33-1 after his
Challow win. We went 20-1 after his
previous handicap win at Newbury
and he was backed down to 10s.
“There has also been a lot of
money for SHARJAH in the
Champion Hurdle, and he is now
8-1 from 33s. In the Cheltenham
Gold Cup, punters have been latching on to CLAN DES OBEAUX. He
is down to 10-1 from 50-1 after his
King George VI Chase victory. But
Might Bite is our biggest liability in
the race having been best price
about him all year. He is now out to
16-1 after being as short as 5-1 at one
point. So some good news for us.”

BAD EXPERIENCE:
Sam Spinner is in
line for some more
jumping practice
Sam’s heading
back to school
SAM SPINNER’S trainer Jedd O’Keeffe
has revealed his stable star hated the
padded hurdles at Ascot when he came
a cropper last month.
The 2017 Long Walk Hurdle winner
unseated Joe Colliver at the second
flight when trying to retain his crown in
the Ascot Grade One.
O’Keeffe, below, believes the
six-year-old took an instant dislike to
the padded hurdles three weeks after
his seasonal debut at Newbury where
he was hampered at the second-last in
the Long Distance Hurdle – with
Colliver being unshipped.
The Leyburn trainer is to give the
horse some schooling to see if he has
got over his bad experience.
O’Keeffe said: “Sam’s great, he’s back
cantering, all seems good.
Homework
“Obviously we’re going to do some
schooling, and then we’ve got to
assess where we are with him.
“We don’t know the answer as to why
he behaved like he did at Ascot. My
feeling is he took exception to the
padded hurdles he hadn’t seen before,
and they gave him a bit of a fright.
“People are telling me it wasn’t the
first time they’d seen it. It was the first
time I’d seen a horse react like
that.”
He hopes some
remedial homework will
point the way forward.
“The first thing is to
school him and see
whether his
confidence has
been dented.
“We do intend to
school him over a
padded hurdle as
well and check he’s

okay after that. If all is good and his
confidence is okay, we plan to go to the
Cleeve. Basically, we’ve got to try to get
his career back on track.
“If we get everything right and back
going again, the plan would be go back
to the Festival for the Stayers’ Hurdle.”
Cheltenham is the dream too for Lord
Yeats, who looked a decent recruit
when switched from the Flat to get off
the mark at the second attempt over
hurdles at Sedgefield on Boxing Day.
O’Keeffe said: “He’s in great shape. I
was thrilled with his win at Sedgefield,
where he did it really well.
“He’s getting the hang of things, and I
think we can do better yet.
“He has learnt to settle quite well now,
and I think he can improve his jumping
a bit further.”
The learning curve is set to continue
close to home first.
“We’ll probably look for a novice up
north with a penalty and get some more
experience into him before putting him
into deeper company,” O’Keeffe added.
“If we can do that and win his next
one, we will probably have to look at
something a bit tougher.
“It would be lovely to think he could
end up in some race at
Cheltenham. We haven’t
made a firm plan – it will
depend on what
happens on his next
couple of starts.
“We’re excited
about him. He got a
mark of 138 for his
win at Sedgefield,
which is very high
for a novice, but in
theory he’s going the
right way.”

IN ASSOCIATION WITH
Laurina just in a
different league
I WOULD normally have
given Got Away a decent
chance in the Unibet
Mares’ Hurdle at Sandown,
but Laurina’s participation
has put paid to that.
Laurina was exceptional
last year and this should
be a formality for her. She
won her race at the
Festival by 18 lengths and
then cruised home in a
Grade One at Fairyhouse.
Got Away won at this
Listed level a year ago
and will no doubt be
winning this season.
I am reunited with my
old friend Tenor Nivernais
in the Unibet Veterans’
Handicap Chase.
This is the final of the
series, which is a fantastic
concept. The veterans are
old favourites and the
public will have struck up
an affinity with these
horses, whose careers
have no doubt been
extended by this initiative.
I won the race on Pete
The Feat a couple of years
AIDAN
COLEMAN
EXCLUSIVE
ago but I think I’ll be
struggling to repeat the
feat with Tenor Nivernais.
He has run well in all the
big handicaps but
understandably hasn’t
shown the same high level
of form in recent seasons.
I like the look of the Dr
Richard Newland-trained
Rock Gone. He’s 11 years
old but only run 14 times.
I’ve got three rides at
Plumpton tomorrow with
the pick being
Stonecoldsoba (3.40).
I rode him at Leicester
recently where he showed
a return to form, having
come down the handicap
a little. A repeat of that
should see him go close.

TV, the new home of British and
Irish racing, which is offering a

Today’s top Starform TV tips from Sandown and
FIND NIRVANA WITH C
1.50
Sandown – It would appear
that leading Champion Hurdle
hope LAURINA has scared away any
credible opposition. This classy mare
should win without any fuss and make it
five wins on the bounce since joining
Willie Mullins. Ascot and Cheltenham
scorer Sensulano can follow her home.
Wincanton – It is worth
2.05
giving KUPATANA another
chance after an unfortunate unseat. She
had put in an immaculate round of
jumping when scoring on her chase
debut at Kempton. A repeat should be
good enough today. Both Enola Gay and
chase debutant The Dellercheckout
may need slower ground to show their
best, but Caltex ran a cracker when
second on his debut for a new yard at
Aintree. He can only improve.
Sandown – The switch to a
2.25
front-running style has seen
improvement from Elixir De Nutz, whose
latest success was given a huge boost by
the runner-up hacking up at Cheltenham
on Tuesday. He should be in the mix but
RATHHILL gets the nod. He showed an
electric turn of foot when scoring at
Newbury and could be something
special.
2.40
Wincanton – The nod
goes to WALLACE
SPIRIT, albeit with a wealth warning. He
has ability, is unexposed and from a top
yard but does have his own ideas. He
threw away a winning chance at
Kempton and cheekpieces are back
on. Hopefully they will do the trick.
Kk Lexion’s last success came in this
event two years ago. He is 3lb higher
but has posted some solid placed
efforts since and can make his presence
felt.
3.00
Sandown – A competitive
renewal but LOOSE
CHIPS seems to save his best for this
track. He has three course and distance
victories to his name and was a game
fifth in this race 12 months ago. Buywise
was successful on that occasion and is
back for more along with the runner-up,
Pete The Feat. The latter is a possible
along with Henllan Harri, who comes
here on the back of two very good
performances.
Wincanton – There is a
3.15
question mark against all
seven runners but COPAIN DE
CLASSE may be the answer. He is

probably best judged on his impressive
Kempton return back in October.
Value At Risk finished last season
with an Ayr victory from Sizing Platinum,
with Theinval back in fourth. All
three have been disappointing this
campaign but that level of form gives
them all a squeak.
Sandown – Saintemilion
3.35
returns from a long absence
and the market may reflect his chance.
Handicap debutant Demopolis is
unexposed but his mark appears stiff
enough. A chance is taken with
ERAGON DE CHANAY who
disappointed last time but does boast two
course victories. The form of the
Wincanton race that Our Merlin won has
been franked and he may have more to
offer despite an 8lb rise.

GET RICH QUICK:
Not with Laurina
who is forecast to go
off at 1-7 in the opening
televised race today
NICKY HENDERSON has
a tremendous strike-rate
in the Grade One Unibet
Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle
at Sandown and it is set to
get even better when he
runs RATHHILL (2.25) in
this year’s renewal.
The son of Getaway was
second in an Irish
point-to-point before
joining the champion
trainer in Lambourn, and
he made a sparkling
British debut when
trouncing 19 rivals in a
novice hurdle at Newbury
in December.
Word from Seven
Barrows is that the horse
has come on a bundle for
the run, so he will take all
the beating.
Lucy Wadham does very
well with her small string
at Newmarket and she
saddled two winners over
Christmas.
LE REVE (3.00) was
rated 146 when he ran
here two runs ago in April
2017, but he rocks up in
the Unibet Veterans’
Handicap Chase off 135.
The triple course and
distance scorer runs
better at the Esher venue
than anywhere else and,
at 11, is one of the
youngest animals in this
old-timers’ affair.
Daryl Jacob is a good
jockey booking and with
17 in the field we can back

DREAM RATING:
Le Reve is well in
VIEW FROM
THE COUCH
Mark Winstanley
Le Reve each-way to
finish in the first four.
In the 32Red Hurdle,
THISTIMENEXTYEAR
(3.35) is worth a nibble.
Richard Spencer’s beast
was runner-up in a similar
affair over track and trip
last month, when he raced
off a rating of 115.
The assessor decided to
nudge him up 5lb but the
five-year-old was running
off a mark of 86 on the
Flat at Newbury in
October, so he still looks
a well-treated creature.
On the sand at Kempton
Park, CONFEDERATE
(7.15) is a very interesting
runner in the 32Red
Handicap.
After three efforts over a
mile and a half, the son of
Teofilo takes a big step up
in trip on his first run in
handicap company.
Hugo Palmer has stuck a
tongue-tie on his gelding
for the first time, so it all
looks set up for a New
Year plot.
Confederate has plenty
of stamina on his dam’s
side and he could be a
blot on the handicap
racing off 71.

Tornado to blow
away opposition
TORNADO FLYER (1.50)
can give Irish champion
trainer Willie Mullins an
eighth victory in the
Lawlor’s Of Naas Novice
Hurdle tomorrow.
In what is a fascinating
Grade One contest,
Mullins saddles three
contenders in a bid to
repel the challenge of
training rival Gordon
Elliott and his star novice
Battleoverdoyen.
Tornado Flyer was third
in the Champion Bumper
at last season’s
Cheltenham Festival and
then went on to win the
Punchestown equivalent.
He looks a smart hurdler
in the making, having
comfortably won on his
hurdling debut at
Punchestown last month
over tomorrow’s two-anda-half-mile trip.
Elliott’s former point-topointer Battleoverdoyen
was mightily impressive
when winning a Navan
maiden hurdle last month
by 13 lengths and is the
clear and present danger.
But the challenges are
likely also to come from
Tornado Flyer’s
stablemates Come To Me,
– another ridiculously
■ by NEIL RANDON
easy maiden hurdle
winner – and Getareason,
placed in a Grade Two
over the trip.
CAMPEADOR (1.20)
really only has to show up
to win a three-runner
two-mile novice chase for
Elliott earlier in the
afternoon, while MISSY
TATA (3.20) can add
additional winning prize
money to the Elliott
coffers later in the day.
She has won six of her
eight starts since arriving
from France in 2015, but
has been off the course
for more than two years.
Her trainer, however,
should have her fit and
ready.
Henry De Bromhead can
also visit the winner’s
circle with front-running
ARVICO BLUE (2.20) in
the two-mile handicap
chase. The seven-year-old
has finished in the
runner-up spot three
times in a row, including
to top-class Le
Richebourg and Hardline
in the autumn. That form
should be enough to beat
off Joseph O’Brien’s
Punches Cross.

KEY TO THE CARDS: our racecards are designed to
give you a better, easier to understand guide to the
runners. Brackets after the racecard number indicate
the draw in Flat races. In the form figures, an ‘L’ indicates the horse finished in last place and a # indicates Bumper form. Figures in brackets after each
horse’s name indicate the number of days since the
horse last ran. (C) indicates a course winner, (D)
indicates a winner over the same distance as today’s
race. (B) or (V) indicates that the horse wears blinkers
or a visor. (T) indicates that the horse wears a tongue
strap. * indicates if wearing blinkers or visor for first
time. (P) indicates that the horse is wearing a Cheek
Piece. (BF) stands for beaten favourite. (F) is winner
on firm going, (G) on good going, (S) on soft going
and (A) on the all weather. The figures in the last
column after the jockey’s name is an exclusive
Clockform rating giving a guide to the horse’s chance.
The highest figure denotes the top rated, which is
also pinpointed by a ★.

IN ASSOCIATION WITH
Watson taken to
hospital after fall
CHAMPION apprentice
Jason Watson, who took
last season’s title with 71
winners, was taken to St
George’s Hospital in
Tooting after suffering a
crushing fall at Kempton
yesterday.
Watson, 18, recently
appointed as the number
one rider for Roger
Charlton, was reported
to be conscious and
talking to the doctors and
was able to move his
arms and legs.
The incident happened
100 yards after the start
when his mount Teresita
Alvarez clipped the heels
of a rival in the fourrunner mile contest.
Watson was thrown to
the ground and had to be
stretchered off the course.

the course at Kempton,
said: “He’s been taken to
hospital for further
assessment.
“He was fully conscious
and I was talking to him.
He was put on a body
board as a precaution.”
Watson has enjoyed a
meteoric rise, with his
first race ride coming less
than two years ago when
he finished second on the
Gary Moore-trained
Breakheart at Kempton in
February 2017.
At Wetherby amateur
rider Jack Andrews was
taken to Harrogate
Hospital with a suspected
fractured femur after
taking a heavy fall from
Hattons Hill in the
handicap chase.

Star Bets
Truckers looking just
great for Alexandra
A MASSIVE £2million Scoop 6 is a
great way to welcome in 2019 and
punters are chasing life-changing
sums today.
It’s an early start at Wincanton at
12.30pm where Truckers Tangle can
improve on his Taunton second last
time out for Alexandra Dunn
(below).
The winner there went close next
time to frank the form.
We head over the Irish Sea to
Cork for the second leg and Brave
Out, who was second at
Punchestown on New Year’s Eve,
can go one better for trainer John E
Kiely in the 1.55.
Dark Episode
got off the mark
at the third
attempt at
Wincanton 12.30
Leicester last
Truckers Tangle
time from a nice
Cork 1.55
type in second.
Brave Out
His third to a
Wincanton 2.40
stablemate at
Dark Episode
Chepstow
previously has
Sandown 3.00
also been
Rathlin Rose
franked when
Cork 3.05
that one won
Lilshane
again since and
Lingfield 3.25
he can take the
Critical Thinking
2.40 at
Wincanton
under champion jockey
Richard Johnson.
The Veterans’ Chase at
Sandown can go to
course specialist
Rathlin Rose.
He is three from five
over course and
distance, plus a
runners-up effort.
Although all those
efforts came in
IRISH HIGHS: Brave Out
the military races, he won
nicely at Ascot in March,
turned in a respectable
fourth place finish here in
November and represents
connections who won this
back in 2016.
He has plenty to
recommend him.
Back to Cork for their 3.05
where Lilshane, who won
well on handicap chase debut
at Limerick last week, can
follow up.
Finally, the sole all-weather
contest at Lingfield can go
the way of Critical Thinking.
He is a dual course winner
– one over this trip – and
has been holding his
form well at other
all-weather tracks
lately.

BRETT WILLIAMS
FORM AND ODDS GUIDE
BET 365 CORAL
Saturday, January 5, 2019
RATHHILL is 5-4 favourite
for the Grade One Tolworth
Hurdle (2.35) which takes
centre stage on a Unibetsponsored Sandown card.
He is looking to follow up his
impressive win on debut for Nicky
Henderson at Newbury last time.
Champ handled the same step up in
grade to land last week’s Challow
Hurdle and this horse looks another
top novice for the champion trainer.
Punters believe Rathhill could be
the real deal and we have not seen a
great amount of cash for much else
apart from Elixir De Nutz who beat
subsequent winner Jarveys Plate at
Cheltenham last time.

■
CLASS:
Rathhill wins
Conqueror
Colin Tizzard’s charge brings strong
form to the race at 2-1.
The big betting race of the day
comes when 17 chasers go to post in
the Unibet Veterans’ Chase (3.00) and
we will be paying five places each way.
The evergreen 15-year-old Pete The
Feat bids for a third victory at the
Esher course and is 14-1 to win
today’s contest and Charlie Longsdon
has been bullish on the chances.
But Rock Gone, who tops the market
at 7-1, is weighted to reverse form with
recent Sandown conqueror Loose
Chips at 10-1. Sam Twiston-Davies is
at 30 per cent (27-91) when riding for
Richard Newland this season.
Henllan Harri, who won the
Whitbread here in 2017, is heavily
handicapped but is no slouch and we
have seen plenty of place support for
on debut at
Newbury
for Nicky
Henderson
(above)
Sean Bowen’s mount at 10-1.
Elsewhere, Capeland bids to defy
a 7lbs rise in the weights in the
Handicap Chase (12.45) but is still
progressing and Paul Nicholls could
not be in any better form.
Poker School is coming down to
a winnable mark and should not be
ignored in a four-runner affair.
In the 32Red Handicap Hurdle (3.35),
Demopolis has been the one for the
money along with Monsieur Lecoq.
Across at Wincanton we have had to
keep Kupatana onside in the 2.05 and
5-2 might not last long for this well
regarded mare.
Magoo reverts to hurdles after a
luckless run over fences last time and
is the best-backed in the 2.40.
At Naas tomorrow, Willie Mullins’
progressive novice Tornado Flyer
bids to enhance his Cheltenham
claims in the Grade One Lawyor’s
Hurdle (1.50).

What is your
horse racing
nap for the
weekend?
Thistimenextyear (3.35) will
appreciate the better ground at
Sandown following his second
place four weeks ago.
Elixir De Nutz at 5-2 at Sandown
(2.25).
I like Ravenhill Road in the novice
chase at Newcastle (12.25)
despite having bled last time
when beaten by a length.
Rock Gone is weighted to win
Sandown’s Veterans’ Chase
(3.00).
...and your best
each-way
racing tip?
Rathlin Rose at Sandown (3.00)
is three from five over course
and distance. Trainer David Pipe
won this race three years ago.
Exitas in the Veterans’ Handicap
Chase at Sandown (3.00) looks
attractive at 14-1.
Le Reve in the Veterans’

(3.00) for which we are paying

drawn their last two matches.
Norwich to beat Portsmouth
at 4-5.
Bournemouth to beat Brighton

looks a great bet.
...and give us a

Burnley (to beat Barnsley),

Huddersfield win at 9-4,

Southampton win at 13-8,
WBA win at 8-11.
Bournemouth, Ayr United, Fylde

Aston Villa, Millwall, Leeds

Who will win
the FA Cup this

Away from the big six,
consider investing in Everton

Watford (33-1).
Manchester City at 4-1
Manchester United.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are
in great form so take a punt and
back them each way at 30-1 to
reach the final.
What is your
top bet in other
events?
The Chargers to beat the
Ravens and the Bears defence
to blunt the Eagles in the NFL.
The double pays 21-10.
Wes Newton to beat Paul Hogan
in the BDO darts at 6-5.
The Colts to beat the Texans in
one of the NFL wild card games

CLARET TO BLUE:
Chelsea should be
looking to sign West
Ham star Arnautovic
NEIL WARNOCK has vowed Cardiff
won’t make FA Cup headlines for the
wrong reasons.
The veteran Bluebirds boss is
desperate to avoid an upset when his
side travel to Gillingham for this
afternoon’s third-round tie.
Cardiff cancelled their pre-match
press conference ahead of their trip to
Priestfield Stadium as they continue to
investigate allegations of bullying made
against Under-18 head coach Craig
Bellamy.
Former Bluebirds striker Bellamy has
stood down from his role while Cardiff
look into the case, but the club’s next
priority is to the cup date with League
One strugglers Gillingham.
Decent
Warnock said: “There’ll be changes to
the team, that’s for sure, but I want to
progress in the competition and we’ll be
taking a strong squad to Kent.
“Three of our younger lads will be
coming with us as well – Cameron
Coxe, James Waite and Lloyd Humphries. We don’t want to be a headline
this weekend.
“From Gillingham’s perspective, they’ll
see it as a great opportunity.”
Warnock is set to give key midfielder
Victor Camarasa a rest after the
Spaniard came off injured in the 3-0
New Year’s Day defeat to Tottenham.
Cardiff first-team coach Ronnie
Jepson managed Gillingham between
2005 and 2007 and has told the
Bluebirds to take nothing for granted.
“Ronnie knows the club well and he’s
told us that Gillingham have a decent
side this season,” said Warnock.
“We’ll need to be at our best, that’s for
sure.”

FINE FINISH: Arnautovic
scores one of his two goals
against Brighton on Wednesday
■ by ANDY ROSE
FLEETWOOD manager Joey Barton
has been given a two-match
touchline ban.
Barton (inset) was sent to the
stands during his side’s defeat at
Bristol Rovers before Christmas
and subsequently charged with
misconduct.
The former Manchester City,
Newcastle, QPR, Burnley and
Rangers midfielder, who will not
be in the dugout for
his side’s FA Cup
clash with AFC
Wimbledon today
and their
League One
clash with
Oxford, was
also fined
£2,000.
Barton, 36,
admitted using
“abusive and/or
insulting” language
as well as questioning
an official’s integrity.
An FA statement read: “Joseph
Barton will serve a touchline ban for
Fleetwood Town’s next two matches
after he was charged with
misconduct.”

Tinkerman 2
CLAUDIO TO TAKE RISK
ACCRINGTON v IPSWICH
ACCRINGTON are without the suspended Offrande
Zanzala, while Nick Anderton and Matty Platt have
returned to their parent clubs. Dan Barlaser’s loan has
been extended until the end of the season.
Dean Gerken is a concern for Ipswich. Cole Skuse and
Emyr Huws could return, while Callum Elder could
come into contention after signing from Leicester.
■ by IAN WINROW
CLAUDIO RANIERI admits he will risk an
FA Cup upset to protect Fulham’s
Premier League survival prospects.
The Cottagers boss, known as ‘The Tinkerman’
during his time at Chelsea, is ready to ring the
changes when League Two Oldham visit Craven
Cottage tomorrow.
Ranieri’s side – who lie second bottom in the top
flight – will still be heavy favourites to book a
place in the fourth round even if the manager
fields a second-string side.
But the Italian says his focus is trained
fully on the relegation scrap which will
unfold in the coming months.
And he believes that after collecting five
points from four games over Christmas – and
playing well in the defeat at Arsenal on New
Year’s Day – his side’s confidence can survive a
cup setback.
ASTON VILLA v SWANSEA
LOVRE KALINIC could make his Aston Villa
debut, while Neil Taylor and Henri Lansbury may
return. On-loan Tammy Abraham is ineligible.
Swansea’s camp has been struck by sickness and
Jefferson Montero, Wilfried Bony and Oli
McBurnie will be assessed. Injured duo Martin
Olsson and Tom Carroll remain sidelined.
BLACKPOOL v ARSENAL
BLACKPOOL midfielder Jordan Thompson will complete
a three-match ban, while defensive duo Curtis Tilt and
Oliver Turton (both knocks) are once again likely to miss
out, with striker Max Clayton (hamstring) doubtful.
For Arsenal, Mesut Ozil (knee) leads the list of expected
absentees, with Hector Bellerin (calf) and Nacho Monreal
(hamstring) not expected to be risked.
Positive
BOLTON v WALSALL
BOLTON boss Phil Parkinson has said he will
freshen up his team after a hammering at Hull,
with Joe Pritchard, Luke Murphy, Mark Little and
Remi Matthews in line for rare appearances.
Walsall trio Connor Ronan, Kane Wilson and Jack
Fitzwater have returned to their parent clubs, but
Matt Jarvis and Omar Mussa have arrived.
BOURNEMOUTH v BRIGHTON
BOURNEMOUTH boss Eddie Howe confirmed he plans
to make changes, with Emerson Hyndman and Matt
Worthington set to be involved. Jermain Defoe is set to
complete a loan move to Rangers.
Brighton are sweating on the fitness of Bernardo (hamstring), while Mat Ryan and Alireza Jahanbakhsh are
on international duty at the Asian Cup.

TINKER PLAN:
Claudio Ranieri
will risk a cup shock
to survive in the
Premier League
Ranieri said: “The FA Cup is a wonderful cup but,
of course, in this moment, the league is too important for
us. The Premier League is very important.
“The confidence, of course, can be higher. They train very
well, they are positive and that is
very, very important
for me.”
Ranieri will be

Alfie Mawson, who
injured his knee in
the victory over
Huddersfield, and admits
the defender could be
facing a lengthy lay-off. He said: “I don’t know when he will
come back but everything is being done, already he is
rehabilitating and we’ll see.
“I expect he could be out for a while but we have to stay
calm and I prefer the player is ready and 100 per cent.”
Fulham have been linked with a January loan move for
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.
TWO-YEAR WAIT: Jarvis
Big date
for Matt
■ by ALEX CROOK
FORMER England winger
Matt Jarvis will play his first
competitive match in more
than two years when he
makes his Walsall debut at
Bolton today.
Jarvis, 32, who joined the
Saddlers from Norwich
earlier this week, has been
out of action since May
2016 after undergoing two
major knee operations.
But ahead of today’s FA
Cup clash Walsall manager
Dean Keates said: “He will
be in the squad. He has
been training with us this
week.
“He has had a bad couple
of years injury-wise. But he
has fully recovered and he’s
looked sharp in training.
“He now wants to play
games.
“He’s had a difficult
couple of years. But he is
fully fit now and has been
training for the last two or
three months.
“He is a massive coup for
the club.
“Matt is a fantastic player,
someone who has Premier
League quality and has
done really well in the
Championship.”

“I am ambitious and we all know where we

Pompey assistant manager Joe Gallen has

ROCHDALE could give a debut to Rory Holden, but
Andy Cannon, Sam Hart and Brendan Moore have left.

wn I naturally avoid all

decided I would have
the attitude that I
didn’t ever want to be
ssed with.”
ut when Nadine fought
5,000 applicants to start
her career as an aviation firefighter,
she found herself at the sharp end
of taunts and bullying by her male
colleagues.
She reveals: “I’ve always been fit,
outdoorsy and a bit of a tomboy but
at the same time I like to look nice,
get my hair and nails done.
“Lads at the station would say,
‘What have you done to get this job’
and ask ‘Who at the top have you
been having a relationship with?’
“To them I didn’t deserve to be
there and was just ticking a box for
the bosses. I had to be stronger and
better than all of them to earn my
place and their respect.
“Still, if I made a mistake all eyes
and blame would be on me, yet if
one of them did, it would barely be
noticed.
“There and then I became thickerskinned and fitter than the lot of
them to prove a point.
“I never got any preferential treatment.”
Her time in the Aviation Fire
Service, she says, prepared her for
living, dressing and even using
the toilet in close quarters
with men.
As duty recruit, she’s at home
pulling everyone together as a
team, even as she struggles with extreme altitude sickness.
But as SAS man Ant Middleton is
famous for breaking down his
recruits’ weaknesses, Nadine is
forced to reveal her underlying
demons during an interrogation
session with Foxy and Ollie.
As well as escaping an abusive
boyfriend who left her struggling
with mental health issues and failing to cope in a relationship since,
she reveals she was delivered a
shocking blow by a person closest
to her.
“I’ve been through some heavy
stuff,” she explains.
“When I was just 23 and starting
out in the fire service a close male
figure in my life who was supposed
to be protecting me betrayed me.
Liar
“If an army of men came out at
me he was supposed to protect me.
He didn’t.
“He sexually assaulted me. I’ve
only just started talking about it.
“His family said I was a liar and
that I had been flirting with him,
I led him on.
“I ended up all over the place. I
feel that now I am the strongest
mentally and physically I have been
in a long time.
“I need to prove something to myself and give this my best shot.”
But Nadine gets off to a less than
great start when she comes under
fire from chief instructor Ant during the very first task for failing to
■
TOUGH: Foxy, Ant,
Ollie and Billy.
Below, Nadine goes
through her paces
take off her wet bra. In expletivefilled scenes, the ex-Marines and
Special Forces hard man tears into
Nadine after all the recruits were
told to change into dry clothes following a jump into a freezing river
high in the treacherous Chilean
Andes.
He yells: “Are you f****** taking
the p**s.
“You’ve compromised yourself
and the entire team for having a
f****** bra on. Are you taking the
f****** p**s.”
But Nadine remains defiant: “In
my experience your body heat dries
your sports bra off quickly.
“As someone with fairly decentsized boobs, I didn’t feel comfortable running around without
one on.”
She continues to strive to prove
Ant wrong. “He’s scared of change.
He worked his way up and is
passionate about the SAS to the
point where he doesn’t believe
women have what it takes.
“But his points will be proved to
be invalid in the long run.
“And I am determined to show
that we can be just as mentally and
physically strong as men.”
Of her own outcome on the show,
she says: “I want to be known as
someone who is happy and strong.
“I never want to be labelled a victim because that’s not what I am.”

JUST JANE
JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES
YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY
... AND EVERY DAY
Bloke’s PARTY SHOCK AT NEW YEAR DAY 6
2
a social 1
misfit
I want
you, Mia…
I miss you…
I need you
MY new boyfriend is
awkward and stilted in
company. I’m a very
sociable person and
love to party, but he
stands in the corner like
a stuffed shirt.
He’s the best lover I’ve
ever had. He’s so exciting
and imaginative in bed
that he always leaves me
feeling amazing.
But get him out of
the bedroom and he’s
got all the social skills
of a waxwork.
Over Christmas,
I attempted to introduce
him to loads of my
colleagues and relatives
and he clammed up.
He had no conversation
and no spark.
Now two friends have
said he’s boring and they
don’t know what I see in
him, and my parents
have suggested my
standards have dropped.
Is it unreasonable of
me to want the full
package? How do I tell
him that I need him to
raise his game without
crushing his confidence
or hurting his feelings?
JANE SAYS: Could it be
that your family and
friends are slightly
overwhelming?
Throwing him in at the
deep end over Christmas
couldn’t have been easy.
There’s no doubt in my
mind that some people
feel more comfortable
one-on-one rather than in
group situations.
Give him another
chance. Organise some
low-key meet-ups or
meals and give him a
chance to relax and
shine on his own terms.
But if the reality is that
he embarrasses you in
public, then maybe you
have to accept that
simply having a great sex
life isn’t enough.
However, do be careful
what you wish for,
because very few
people are practically
perfect in every way
– including you.
Mia is in shock at Ollie’s suggestion
You’ve got
a nerve
What about
your girlfriend?

Please, Mia…
Oh, gotta go…
there’s Rachel…
I’ll ring you
I don’t believe
your cheek
Oh, she
mustn’t know,
of course

The other guy comes over
Mia and the guy are dancing
Was he
bothering
you…?
I still love
Ollie…should
I be his bit on
the side?
Don’t worry
about him

DO you have an emotional or sexual problem? Our friendly team of professional
counsellors and therapists are waiting to
listen and offer support in total confidence every day between 10am and 8pm.

SEXUAL GUIDANCE for all men’s
and women’s intimate problems
HOW dare Ollie treat you
like this. If he hadn’t made
his nasty suggestion you’d
be happily wondering if
you and the sexy guy
had a future.
If Ollie wanted to be with
you, he didn’t have to end
your relationship and find
someone else.
He’s made you very
unhappy and, although you
think you still love him,
you’ve begun to recover.
If you hadn’t, you
wouldn’t have even been
dancing with the other guy.
I’m sure Ollie was
surprised that you didn’t
jump at his suggestion!
When he rings, tell him in
no uncertain terms that
he’s got a damn cheek
and there is no way you
are going to have a secret
fling with him.
If you want, you can tell
him that he has the option
to tell his girlfriend that it’s
over and come back to you.
That way you’ll know if
he’s being serious. But
I reckon he just wants to
have his cake and eat it.
Don’t let him use you, and
find a guy who will not
treat you like a door mat!

My brother’s cruel
MY selfish brother has an odd
attitude towards sex and
relationships.
He’s nearly 30 and always attracted
to women who are shy, unconfident
and subservient.
He bosses them around and boasts he
uses them for any kind of sex he fancies.
But the minute these women gain an
ounce of confidence or dare to answer
him back, he throws them out the door. In
short, he doesn’t like anyone who sticks
up for herself. I don’t think this is healthy,
do you?
My partner and I are currently very
angry. He cruelly dumped his last partner
(who we adored) on December 10 and
moved in a new model the very next day.
We had to endure Christmas lunch at
our table with a giggling woman we
had never even met before. We felt very
uncomfortable and disloyal.
My partner maintains that he is simply

Despite everything, our mother adores

his partners for a “fresh model” then that’s
up to him. His behaviour may not be desirable or mature, but we’re all different.
What you can’t allow him to do is act like
a brat and run roughshod over you in your
own home. I get the impression your
mother will always take his side, no matter
what, so don’t bother to argue with her.
All family situations have their particular
challenges. Be thankful that you all got
through the holidays in one piece and that
there’s a new year to look forward to.
He puts off
having kids
I’M worried that my partner doesn’t want children as
much as I do.
Every time I talk about me coming off the pill, he urges
me to wait. He says he’s too busy to think about starting
a family. He suggests we bide our time until we’re both
ready to settle down and commit to family life.
What if he keeps putting me off and then I can’t get
pregnant because I’m too old?
JANE SAYS: If you’re serious about having a child, you
need to have an honest chat with your partner about his
thoughts and intentions, because fertility can be fickle.
Sadly, if he isn’t able to give you the kind of assurances
you crave, maybe you will have to move on. Time is precious and you can’t waste a moment if your partner isn’t
committed, has a different agenda or is playing games.

Roc-in out
HIT BEACH &
LIVE DREAM
AT HAVEN OF
THE FAMOUS
■ by JENNIFER DUNKERLEY
THERE’S a new kid on
the block in Miami –
and everyone is
queueing up for a
taste of the high
life at the latest
celeb hangout.
Yes, the acclaimed
Nobu chain has just
opened an outpost in
one of the Sunshine
State’s most famous
hotels, the Eden Roc.
Girls teetering on high heels
giggle excitedly as they are
ushered into the restaurant
hoping to spot a well-known TV
actor or pop star.
In fact, everywhere you look
there are beautiful bodies living
the Instagram dream. I channel
their enviable lifestyles at sunrise
yoga on the wide South Beach
followed by a jog along the boardwalk to the soundtrack of waves.
Then I hit Eden Roc’s super high
tech gym and try Surfset, an
all-over body workout class based
HEALTHY: Malibu Farm sea view restaurant. Left, Jennifer tries a cocktail
on the elements of surfing and which
guarantees
a
bikini-ready body.
After these early
morning exertions, I’m
more than ready for breakfast. So
I head to Malibu Farm, another
famous eatery in residence at
Eden Roc, which transports your
tastebuds straight to the healthyeating houses of Hollywood.
A green juice is placed before
me, as are an egg-white omelette
and a tropical fruit plate I can’t
wait to snap for social media.
I’m relieved it’s not your usual
heavy calorie-laden American
food. Malibu Farm offers deli-
cious meals carefully devised to
be naturally healthy as well as
tasting a little indulgent.
It sets me up for a day of enjoying all the city has to offer.
South Beach is known for its
pastel-coloured 1930s Art Deco
architecture and for being the
backdrop to movies and TV shows
such as Scarface, Moonlight and
Miami Vice.
I took a guided tour around the
hotels, which brought to life the
glitzy history and the glossy characters these streets have hosted.
There’s another side of Miami,
equally rich in culture – Little
Havana. It came to be thanks to
the Latin American immigrants
who landed here in the 1960s flee-
ing Castro’s regime. Our tour
guide from Urban Adventures
Miami explained that this district
remains a hub of Hispanic heritage today. She showed us the lively
Cuban bars, restaurants (sampling the food, of course), cigarrolling stores, coffee shops and
murals that line the main street.
At Domino Park you can meet
the real characters as they sit
around special tables tapping
their rectangular tiles.
The teams of Cuban dominoplayers here take their sport seriously, but will stop to talk tactics
as they consider their next move.
We couldn’t miss the Azucar Ice
Cream shop, which offers nearly
100 Latino-inspired flavours with

HISTORIC
HOTEL’S A
TOP STAY
Miami style
names like Burn In Hell Fidel
(surprisingly tasty). Another area
which has more recently risen up
from Miami’s rich cultural scene
is Wynwood.
Here artists and graffiti designers from all over the globe battle
for wall space for their work on
any building they can find.
We toured the colourful painted
district with two artists called
Ryan and Pedro, who set up the
Miami Best Graffiti Guide golf
buggy trips as well as being
responsible for some of the artwork here themselves.
They explained the rules of the
graffiti world – how spray-can
gangs would compete for the best
spaces and the unwritten respect
of street art veterans.
But it’s still the beach that is
Miami’s biggest draw.
A playground for the rich and
famous who live here, you can
take a boat trip to see where the
likes of Will Smith, Jennifer
Lopez and Matt Damon have their
waterfront mansions.
But staying on the beach is just
as glamorous. Among the big
hotels that sit along the sand, the
opulent and historic Eden Roc is
one of the best known.
It won an award from the American Institute of Architects for its
work in preserving its historic
1950s roots, while being renovated
into the stylish modern celebrity
haven it is today.
Back in the 1950s Elizabeth
Taylor and Nat King Cole used to
come to sip cocktails.
Nowadays its three pools are
adorned with beautiful bodies
also sipping cocktails, sunbathing
and soaking up the music from
the resident DJ. There’s a spa with
a relaxation room you might
never want to leave, with floor-toceiling views across the resort
and beyond.
Each of the hotel’s newly redecorated beach chic rooms face the
ocean. And Eden Roc won’t break
the bank either.
New all-inclusive packages mean
the hotel is affordable all year
round for anyone wanting a taste
of the A-list action.
But it’s by night that Miami
comes to life. While the round bar
is buzzing with guests clinking
glasses and excitedly anticipating
their night out, the queue for
Nobu intensifies as a chart-topping rapper is ushered inside.
For all the healthy starts here,
Miami dictates that your day usually ends with a drink in hand.
It’s a city that works hard and
plays harder. The nightlife scene
is full of clubs hosting the latest
DJs and the hottest venues change
as quickly as the beach towels.
But propping up the bar at Eden
Roc, you know you have a venue
that will never go out of style.

STUNNING:
A bird’s-eye
view of majestic
Eden Roc hotel
■ by STUART BRODKIN
BACK in the day – 1924 to be precise – Alan
Sanderson was a bit of a shrewdie.
It was Sanderson who bought the 200-acre
Selsdon Park and the house that went with it
for £13,000 – and turned it into a hotel.
The Victorian house is now the De Vere
Selsdon Estate hotel in Croydon, south London,
and has just had a £5million refurbishment.
The hotel boasts 150 bedrooms, ranging from
standard to suites. For the outdoor types, there
is an 18-hole championship golf course, plus a
leisure club complete with heated indoor pool,
Jacuzzi, steam room and state-of-the-art gym.
The hotel is the ideal place for some serious
rest and relaxation and it’s pet-friendly and
children-friendly too.
“Well-behaved cats and dogs are welcome,”
says the brochure – though nothing there about
‘well-behaved’ children!
Delight
Why not try a sumptuous afternoon tea in the
Orangery overlooking the golf course or dine
and drink in the 1042 Bar and Restaurant,
named for the year when the Knights Templar
owned the estate?
Yes, the estate is steeped in history and goes
back as far as 861AD. It was once home to
Benedictine monks and it is believed that Elizabeth I often rode in the woods of Selsdon Park.
The restaurant was a delight with attentive
service and a varied menu, including a whole
host of vegetarian options. I even tasted, for
the first time, a vegetarian haggis Scotch egg
followed by an excellent butternut squash,
chickpea and spinach Thai red curry.
Breakfast, too, was a leisurely affair. With
retro being the hotel’s style, there were no milk
jugs – only old-fashioned milk bottles.
There are comforting log fires in reception,
which features the most ornate and beautiful
ceiling in any hotel I’ve ever stayed in, and the
retro theme continues with the clever use of
vintage luggage for displaying drinks.
Rooms at the four-star De Vere Selsdon
start from £89 a night B&B. You can book at
devere.co.uk/selsdon-estate

with a pound-for-pound
boxing star think would
happen?
Mayweather says he is
still retired with his 50-0
record intact.
But there will surely be
offers to tempt him into
the ring for a real fight
this year.
A rematch with Manny
Pacquiao has been
mooted and if the
Filipino puncher beats
Adrien Broner this
month, it might happen.
Mayweather, who
outclassed Pacquiao in
2015, would still be able
to beat his long-time
rival even at his current
age if they do meet again
for huge money.
But he is too clever to
get in with those at the
top of the welterweight
division now should the
likes of Errol Spence Jnr
or Terence Crawford call
him out. And it
doesn’t matter
how much cash is
on offer.
The American
knows he would
lose to those two
who are just
entering their
prime, while he is
past his best.
And that explains
perfectly why he
is the best
promoter in the
sport.
■
Many feel the PPV market in the
sport is saturated now.
James DeGale against Chris
Eubank Jnr is a fight to be excited
about. But it’s the latest in the long
line of bouts that fans must cough
up extra for to watch on TV.
It looks like it will be the first of
many PPV events in 2019, which
may even reach double figures
across a number of platforms.
The meeting of the two supermiddleweights will attract big
interest when it rolls around on
February 23.
Tickets will go fast and the socalled casual supporters of the
sport will be drawn in by the
names and the predictable verbal
barbs that will be traded.
The fight also brings in American
music mogul Al Haymon to the UK
market with his Premier Boxing
Champions product and their new
deal with terrestrial broadcaster
ITV. Richard Poxon is also involved
CLEVER
by CHRIS McKENNA
as the UK face of Haymon’s PBC
empire and acts as the promoter of
the series that will stage shows here
under his Poxon Sports banner.
ITV is cementing itself in the
sport for three years, while another
promoter in the market brings
added competition for the likes of
Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren.
Shame
The ITV deal will give fans free
access to some huge American fights,
starting with Manny Pacquiao’s
clash with Adrien Broner on
January 19, which is on ITV4.
Those things are good news for the
sport because more boxing on TV
and more competition for the men
currently running it can only help

improve the product on offer. But it
is just a shame that to get big names
like DeGale and Eubank Jnr in the
ring, they are back in the PPV
market too.
Those in the trade will argue it is
now the only way to make big fights
and that advertising revenue on TV
will not cover the costs.
Boxers deserve big paydays for
putting their lives on the line to
satisfy our need for entertainment
– pay-per-view does that with Sky
Sports and BT Sport delivering
some huge fights on their box
office platforms.
Josh Warrington’s win over Carl
Frampton, Tyson Fury’s dramatic
draw with Deontay Wilder and
Anthony Joshua’s explosive win
over Alexander Povetkin were
worth every penny.
Maybe DeGale against Eubank
Jnr will be too.
But it’s becoming more and more
expensive to follow a sport built on
working-class foundations.
Those that are charging have to
ensure those who prop up the sport
are not being short-changed.

RYAN HAYDEN has
netted the hat-trick of
the season after banking
three monster roach for
almost 10lb!
The big-fish angler was
tackling a Southern still
water when he went on a
silver fish spree, luring 3lb,
3lb 3oz and 3lb 10oz
specimens.
A single three-pounder is
thought by many anglers to
be a fish-of-a-lifetime, so
the haul is one of the
greatest redfin catches in
history – with all falling in
a half-hour feeding spell.
Ryan relied on long-range
maggot feeder tactics, with
short Drennan Supplex
Fluorocarbon hooklinks,
■
with RICHARD LEE
and size 18 Wide Gape
Specialist Hooks.
THE biggest barbel of
the season in the River
Trent has been caught at
a weight of 18lb 8oz.
Captor Matt Hughes
connected with the whacker
on an overnight session.
It beats his previous best
of 16lb 12oz and was lured
on a hair-rigged boilie,
presented with a PVA
bag of pellets.

PREDATOR angler Phil
Davies went in search
of zander on Rutland Water
when his lure was grabbed
by a surprise 12lb 12oz
bream.
The rare capture proves
just how predatory most
coarse species can be and
underlines the potential of
the trout reservoir as a
mixed fishery.
CARPER Simon Kenny
is enjoying a run of big
fish – his latest a mirror
known as ‘Armageddon’.
It slammed the scales
down to 50lb 10oz and

Kingsmead One pit in
Berkshire.

Morgan’s a
major deal
■ RUGBY LEAGUE
LONDON BRONCOS
have signed 20-year-old
Warrington half-back
Morgan Smith ahead of
their return to Super
League.
Smith, an England
academy international,
joins the Broncos on a
12-month deal and will
help fill the void created
by the loss of Jarrod
Sammut to Wigan.
London coach Danny
Ward said: “He has
come through the
system at a top club and
we are looking forward
to working with him.”

■ FORMULA ONE
VALTTERI BOTTAS
has been set the
target of matching
Lewis Hamilton’s
performance if he is
to keep his Mercedes
seat beyond 2019.
Bottas failed to win
a race last year as
Hamilton romped to a
fifth world title.
Mercedes boss Toto
Wolff said: “He needs
a start where he is
right up there with
Lewis and all the
other drivers. That is
what is needed for the
2020 year.”

Hammer can end horror
ANDY HAMILTON takes a
big step along the road to
redemption on Monday as
he begins his bid for Lakeside glory in the ‘other’
world championship.
Seven years ago, ‘The Hammer’
was a beaten finalist at Alexandra
Palace when he lost 7-3 against
Adrian Lewis in the Professional
Darts Corporation’s version of
tungsten combat.
But after plummeting down the
rankings, amid personal issues and
patchy form, Hamilton lost his Tour
card and resolved to rebuild his
career on the British Darts Organisation circuit.
He opens his campaign for the
BDO crown at Frimley Green against
David Cameron – not that one, but a
Canadian qualifier – insisting he
can turn the tide and win it.
Hamilton, 51, said: “It’s been a turbulent year for me, going from the
PDC to the BDO, but I am excited
about going to the Lakeside.
“I’ve been to a world championship final before and I really
believe I can win it. I’ve been
there and got the T-shirt.
“There are lots of reasons why I
lost my PDC Tour card, and it wasn’t

leading the race to sign
Sunderland hotshot Josh
Maja, who has turned
down a new contract at the
Stadium of Light.
The Premier League’s
bottom side have scored
just 13 goals this season and
see the 20-year-old – who
has 15 this term – as the
man to give them a chance
of avoiding the drop.
But boss David Wagner
faces competition from
Crystal Palace and Burnley,
with Bristol City and
Preston also interested.
Maja’s current deal runs
out at the end of the season
and the Black Cats had set
him a deadline of yesterday
to sign a new one.
He had told manager Jack
Ross he was happy to stay
and chairman Stewart Donald believes it is his agent,
rather than the youngster,
who is pushing for a move.

HISTORY
will
be
made at the Riverside
today
when
Middlesbrough’s
oldest and youngestever players line up
together
against
Peterborough.
Goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos at 40 years and 36
days has replaced former
England captain and ex-Boro
player-manager Bryan Robson as the club’s oldest
professional.
And he is likely to feature
alongside teenager Nathan
Wood, who set a record in
August when he came on as a
sub in a Carabao Cup tie
against Notts County just
two months past his 16th
birthday.

HISTORY BOY: Boro
rookie Nathan Wood
in action against Preston
Witness
Konstantopoulos had just
completed his fifth season at
Kalamata in his native Greece
when Wood was born on May
31, 2002 just a few miles away
from Boro’s home ground.
And Riverside boss Tony
Pulis is urging fans to turn
up and witness football’s very
own generation game.
“It is unique,” said Pulis.
“It will never happen again,
to get the youngest and
oldest playing in one game.
“Dimi could be Nathan’s
grandfather! It’s an amazing
situation and I’ve never had
that age difference before.
“Supporters should come
along to witness the occasion
for themselves.”
Konstantopoulos arrived in
English football when his
team-mate was one and
played for Hartlepool before
earning a move to Coventry.
He will make his 99th Boro
appearance in the thirdround clash and, according to
Pulis, it won’t be his last.
He added: “Dimi is a great
professional who comes in
with a smile on his face every
day and does his best.
“He should keep playing for
as long as he can.”
Centre-half Wood is the son
of former Boro and Crystal
Palace defender Dean Gordon
and is tipped to become the
next star off the club’s
renowned production line.
“Nathan has a fantastic
future, if he keeps his feet on
the ground,” said Pulis.
“He needs to play and we
are keen to get him out
there. He’s a young lad but
physically very capable.”
Pulis revealed centre-half
Aden Flint faces several
weeks on the sidelines with a
hamstring problem.
Meanwhile Rajiv van La
Parra, his new signing from
Huddersfield, will make his
debut today.
■
GAP YEARS: Dimi
Konstantopoulos
is 24 years older than
team-mate Wood
He tweeted: “Josh asked
to see Jack to say he will
sign. Today I got a call from
Sky TV saying he won’t
sign. He wants to sign. It is
his agent who said don’t.”
Donald has urged the 3,000
away fans at Charlton today
not to get on Maja’s back.
“Stay behind him,” he
said. “We will try to change
his mind.”
Meanwhile, Ben Hamer
hopes to end Bristol City’s
FA Cup run at the first
hurdle tonight, even though
he used to support them.
The recalled Huddersfield
keeper said: “My old man
will be in the away section,
100 per cent, but I imagine
there’ll be a bit of split
loyalty there for him.
“He used to take me down
there back in the 1990s. We
had season tickets.
“But as soon as I started
playing he followed me and
started supporting me.”
The Terriers have signed
Jason Puncheon on loan
from Crystal Palace until
the end of the season.
Watford get Pen at last Terry’s boys Gunner stick together
WATFORD boss Javi Gracia is ready to
unleash South American starlet
Adalberto Penaranda at Woking’s
sold-out Kingfield Stadium.
Penaranda was a runner-up at the 2017
Under-20 World Cup where Venezuela
were beaten in the final by England.
The 21-year-old has had to wait two
years to make his first Hornets
appearance after his move was held up
by passport issues and injury.
But as Gracia rings the changes
tomorrow, following four Premier League
games in 11 days, he is expected to give
Penaranda the chance against
non-League Woking.
The Hornets have won 18 of their last
19 cup ties against non-League
opposition.
The only exception was a controversial
3-2 defeat in the third round at Northwich
Victoria in 1977, in front of superstar
■ by MIKE WALTERS
chairman Elton John, when they were in
the Fourth Division.
But Gracia trusts his squad, who
performed creditably in the Carabao Cup
against Reading and Tottenham.
He said of Penaranda: “He is fit and is
improving day by day. He’ll be available
and in this moment he is an option.
“Our mentality will be the most
important thing. In all of the games we
have played, they have kept a very good
level and it won’t be any different. They
will be ready.”
Also in Watford’s squad is England
midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah, whose
return from a year-long absence with a
fractured kneecap has been tempered by
a loss of confidence.

TOGETHERNESS:
Blackpool boss
Terry McPhillips
BLACKPOOL boss Terry McPhillips
says the togetherness of his squad has
helped them handle a turbulent season.
The Seasiders were away from their
Squires Gate training ground from
pre-season until last month because of
an unfit playing surface.
Meanwhile, the animosity between
fans – many of whom stay away – and
the Oyston family, the club’s owners,
rumbles on.
Despite a recent blip in form Blackpool
sit 10th in League One, and as he
prepared his squad for today’s FA Cup
third-round showdown against Arsenal,
McPhillips said: “The players just get on
with stuff.
‘‘The training ground wasn’t up to
scratch but we’re back at Squires now –
it has improved but there’s still a long
way to go.
“To be fair to these lads they just get
■ by DAVID CHARLESWORTH
on with it and crack on. We’ve got a
solidarity and we stick together.
“With everything that’s going on, we
just stay out of it and we crack on with
our work. We only affect the things we
can affect.”
The fixture comes a week after the
Gunners were thrashed 5-1 by Premier
League leaders Liverpool, a result that
delighted Reds fan and former youthteam forward McPhillips.
He added: “It’s always been Liverpool
for me. The Arsenal result was ‘wow’,
that they can do that, and after going a
goal behind as well.
“Can we take something from them?
I’m not sure we can apart from be
excited by them and then we can strive
to be as close to them as you could
possibly be.”

FRANKS A
LOT, DAD
Lamps fired up for glory
■ by DAVE ARMITAGE
FRANK LAMPARD recalls vividly how his father
put him on the road to FA Cup glory.
Derby boss Lampard goes into his first FA Cup clash as a
manager having lifted the trophy four times as a Chelsea player.
And he has told his men to start out against Southampton today
with only one thing in mind – Wembley.
The 40-year-old says there’s no such thing as half measures in
football, as he discovered as a kid pounding the streets of London
with his West Ham star dad Frank senior.
“My dad took me to one side when I was about six and told
me I needed to run the streets, work
hard in training and run box to
box,” said the former England star.
“For a midfield player it is an obvious
necessity to be able to have the energy
to be up and down, and fitter than your
opponents, and so I try to put
that into the players here.
“Did I get it straight away? I
had no choice! I was told that
hard work would get me
possibly to where I wanted to
be, so I did get it.

AITOR KARANKA has
dismissed speculation
that he is about to be
sacked at Nottingham
Forest boss as “ridiculous
and embarrassing”.
The Spaniard insists he
won’t be letting talk that
he’s a dead man walking
spoil Forest’s big FA Cup
date at Chelsea today.
Karanka’s future is
hanging by a thread with
his side seventh in the
Championship, four points
■ by DAVE ARMITAGE
off the play-offs, after a
miserable time recently.
Their New Year’s Day win
over leaders Leeds ended
a run of five matches
without a victory and there
remains an ominous
silence around the City
Ground about his future.
Karanka (right) said: “I
don’t care about the
speculation or rumours.
“When I hear rumours
that the players aren’t with
me, then the only thing
you can do is laugh.
“I trust myself 150
per cent and I trust
the players 200 per
cent. I think we’re in
a good position to
kick on.
“The FA Cup is
special and playing
at Chelsea is
special and should
be a big motivation
to my players.”
GIANFRANCO ZOLA has
told Alvaro Morata to deal
with the pressure of being
Chelsea’s No.9.
The Blues assistant
coach admitted the
Stamford Bridge club
thought the £60m Spain
striker was a perfect fit
when he joined from Real
Madrid in July 2017.
But he has scored only
five Premier League goals
this season – the last on
November 4 – and
has struggled
badly.
Morata
(right) will get
the chance to
end his
five-game
barren streak
in the FA Cup
against
Nottingham Forest
today.
But when asked if he
had sympathy for Morata,
Blues legend Zola said:
“No, it should be a
motivational thing.
“People expect a lot
from the No.9 of Chelsea,
they expect a lot of goals
and a lot of performances.
“This is normal and
Alvaro has to get used to
it. If he goes to another
■ by NEIL McLEMAN
big club, it’s going to be
the same. It’s part of your
job and the better you can
handle those situations,
the better you will be.
“I know he feels he
doesn’t score enough and
he has to come up with a
solution that allows him
to play at his standards.”
Cesc Fabregas and Gary
Cahill could both make
their final Chelsea
appearances
today but Zola
believes
Callum
Hudson-Odoi
has a bright
future – if he
shows
patience.
The England
youth star, 18, is a
Bayern Munich target
after refusing to sign a
contract extension, while
the Blues this week spent
£57.6m on Borussia
Dortmund wideman
Christian Pulisic.
“He has to think long
term,” said Zola.
“It’s very difficult when
you are young. But if he
keeps improving the way
he has, he will play a lot.”

“The game now is faster,

and if you don’t have energy
levels to deal with it, the game
will pass you by. So it is important as a team we have that.”
Lampard added: “What’s the
aim starting out in the FA

against Southampton to start
with.”
While Saints’ priority is
Premier League survival, boss
Ralph Hasenhuttl cannot wait
for his first taste of the world’s
oldest knockout tournament.
“The FA Cup is very special
for people here in England,”
said the Austrian.
“I can remember as a small

“The FA Cup Final in my

County boss eyes

■ by JAMES CANDY
NEWPORT manager Mike
Flynn plans to make
Claude Puel pay if he
rotates his Leicester
team tomorrow.
■
THUMB-THING SPECIAL:
Mike Flynn celebrates the
win over Leeds last season and
(below) with Tottenham boss
Mauricio Pochettino at Wembley
Puel has come under
fire despite stunning
wins over Manchester
City and Chelsea
lifting the Foxes to
seventh
in
the
Premier League.
But a different beast
awaits them at Newport’s Rodney Parade lair.
Leeds and Spurs were both humbled in the red-hot atmosphere last
season.
And Flynn is determined to send the Foxes
back across the Severn Bridge with their
tails between their legs if they leave out
Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.
“Nobody is expecting us to win, but
nobody was expecting us to get anything
against Spurs (1-1) or Leeds (2-1) last
year,” said the Newport boss.
“There is a lot of interest and the reason
we are on telly is because there is a chance
of an upset.
“I believe if we go out and Leicester have
an off day and we play to our best, then that
could happen, why shouldn’t I think that?
“I hope they change the entire team, we
need them to rest a few.
“They’ve been going well in the Premier
League, so I think they should rest eight or
nine of them.”
Flynn is without a left-back and can only
dream of the options Puel has at his disposal,
with the likes of Wes Morgan, Christian
Fuchs, Kelechi Iheanacho and James
Maddison all in line to start.
Neil Warnock found a formula to tame the
Foxes last weekend, and Flynn has been on
the phone to the Cardiff boss for some words
of advice.
“I had quite a funny conversation with
Neil,” added Flynn.
“I was trying to
get a player in on
loan before Sunday
and he asked who
we had, I said,
‘Leicester’, and he
said, ‘Ouch’.
“He said they
aren’t a bad side,
he’s a character,
he’s been there,
seen it, done it,
and if he can
help, I’m sure he
will.
“I wouldn’t mind

Foxes chief to tie up Barnes return
LEICESTER manager Claude Puel
wants loan ranger Harvey Barnes left
out of West Brom’s FA Cup clash with
Wigan today.
Puel does not want his young
midfield star cup-tied – the clearest
sign yet that the Foxes plan to recall
the 21-year-old.
Leicester will not call on Barnes
(right) ahead of their own third-round
tie at Newport tomorrow.
But Puel will ask West Brom not to
use him against the Latics, raising
fears among Baggies supporters that
■ by STEVE MADELEY
they are about to lose the England
Under-21 star.
Several first-team fringe players
could leave the King Power Stadium in
the January transfer window and Puel
wants the option to call back Barnes.
The Leicester academy prospect has
starred in West Brom’s Championship
promotion challenge with nine goals.
Puel said: “I think it would be a good
thing if he can’t play in this game.
“There is no decision yet. It’s a
possibility. If he has to come back, it
will be to compete here with other
players.
“We will see. He has a clinical
edge, we’ve had a problem with
this.”
Vicente Iborra, Andy King and
Adrien Silva could all leave
Leicester.
But Puel realises West Brom
need to know what is
happening with Barnes as
they will want to bring in a
replacement this month.

CRYSTAL PALACE boss Roy
Hodgson will resist the
temptation to hand Connor

But he could start Jordan

Swansea man’s stunning goal
in the 2-0 win at Wolves.
Wickham (left) has come off
the bench in the last three
games after a lengthy spell out
■ by NICK SZCZEPANIK
with a series of injuries. But
Hodgson said: “Connor hasn’t
played a game from the start
for over two years.
“There have been so many
breakdowns and false dawns.
“Our experience shows he is
impatient and he believes he is
fit quicker than he is.
“It is a question now of being
patient with him, and him
being patient with himself. You
may feel you are right but you
can’t write off the injuries that
have laid you low.”
Ayew’s return to full
confidence could be as gradual
as Wickham’s path back to
fitness, according to Hodgson.
His goal at Molineux was his
first for Palace on his 15th
appearance and Hodgson
hinted that Ayew had felt the
pressure from impatient fans.
“Players read a lot and follow
social media,” Hodgson added.
“So anyone out there who
thinks, ‘I will enjoy myself by
criticising this person’, they
read it and take it to heart.
“He is very serious about his
football and we encourage him
as much as possible.
“We try to shield him from
outside criticism, and make it
clear we are not disappointed
with him.”

Dwight is

SEAN DYCHE insists he
was right to hold to hold
back Burnley’s teenage
winger Dwight McNeil.
The 19-year-old made a
spectacular impact over
the New Year, scoring his
first senior goal against
West Ham and then setting
up a tap-in for Chris Wood
at Huddersfield.
Now the ex-Manchester
United schoolboy is set to
face Barnsley in the FA

Clarets boss Dyche said:
“He’s been learning well,
sitting behind the main
players, and he’s been
training well.
“He’s been playing in the
Under-23s, delivering very
good and very mature
performances.
“It’s very difficult for
young players. They need a
chance to operate when
you think they can stay in.
“You need to give them a
real chance, not just the
odd little cameo. It’s about
trying to keep them in.”
McNeil made his first
Premier League start
against Manchester United
in early September, but had
to wait until last Sunday
for his second.
He caused Huddersfield
plenty of trouble in
midweek, but was still
replaced with almost 30
minutes left.

It will be Nasri’s first competitive game

But Pellegrini insists the ex-Manchester

The Blues boss has

in the Championship
despite working under a
transfer embargo and facing
the threat of a points
deduction for breaking
Financial Fair Play rules.
Their latest financial
results show the club needs
another £39m in the next 18
months just to stay afloat.
But on the pitch a run of
just one defeat in eight
games has Monk’s side
challenging for promotion
ahead of today’s FA Cup
third-round tie at West Ham.
He said: “The whole
situation we have faced
from the start of the season
has made us the underdog
throughout.
“But whether you are an
underdog or not, it’s about
the mentality you have as a
team. The want to do
something better and push
themselves. That has been
apparent all season.
“We are definitely
underdogs for this game.
“We are playing against
Premier League opposition,
the highest quality squad
we have faced this season,

more without any problems.”
Nasri served an 18-month ban after
using an IV drip at a clinic in LA while on
loan from City at Sevilla in 2016, but is
now free to play after signing a shortterm deal at the London Stadium.
Pellegrini added: “I don’t want to
talk about whether it was his fault or
not his fault. He was involved. I have
known Samir Nasri since I was at
Manchester City.
“He was a top player in the first year,
one of the reasons we won the title was
because of him. After that, a lot of young
players made a lot of mistakes.
“After speaking to him for a long time
about what he was thinking about for the
future, I decided to give him an option
here at West Ham. Mentally, he is another
player with a lot of experience.”
Pellegrini, who insists neither Andy
Carroll nor star man Marko Arnautovic
will be sold this month, also admitted
Jack Wilshere is still weeks away from a
comeback after his latest ankle injury.
He said: “We knew he had a problem
with his ankle and had surgery some
years ago.
“This time it was the other ankle and he
was perhaps a little bit afraid that it was
broken again.
“But it was not, so we have to be calm
and give him time to recover. He has to
feel that his ankle has no pain.
“We will see with the doctor and the
player, but he still needs some weeks
more.”

PRESSURE POINT:
It’s been a bumpy
ride for Gary Rowett
BACK: McCarthy trains
James is
raring to
go again
■ by CHRIS McKENNA
JAMES McCARTHY will
return to Everton’s squad
today for their FA Cup clash
with Lincoln after almost a
year out.
The Republic of Ireland
midfielder, 28, suffered a
double leg break during the
1-1 draw at home to West
Brom on January 20.
McCarthy returned to
first-team training before
Christmas but has yet to
feature in Marco Silva’s
match squad.
That will change when
they host the League Two
leaders in the FA Cup third
round and the Toffees boss
has not ruled out McCarthy
starting the game.
Silva said: “I can tell you
he will be in the 18-man
squad list for the match. If
he is in the squad, he is
ready to play.
“He is training every day
with us in all the sessions.
It is up to me to decide
whether he starts the game
or not.
GARY FEELS AT HOME
WITH THE PRESSURE
GARY ROWETT admits he
is living a double life as he
desperately bids to stave
off the axe at Stoke.
Defeat at underdogs Shrewsbury in
the FA Cup today will see the curtain
come down on Rowett’s eight-month
reign at the Potters.
But the 44-year-old says that it’s a
delicate balancing act trying not to
take the pressure home with him.
Rowett is getting hammered right
now with Stoke sitting 14th in the
Championship table and eight points
off the play-off places.
He is the first to admit it’s not gone
as planned and defeat to the League
One strugglers is unthinkable.
Reaction
“I’m not going to suggest that I’m
superhuman and don’t feel some sort
of disappointment,” said Rowett.
“It’s the business I’m in. You would
have to be an idiot not to know it’s a
precarious job.
“I’m not going to whinge or complain about the reaction and it’s
not going to change who I am.
“It’s not going to change the Gary
Rowett who goes home every night to
his four kids and his family. I know
who I am and I’m not going to change
my outlook.
“It’s not fair to take it back to your
family. I very rarely let it affect my
home life and that’s important. You
are perceived as a different person in
your job to the one you are at home.
“But I still have to do the normal
■ by DAVE ARMITAGE
things like put my little lad to bed,
make sure the bins are out and all
that stuff and I still get moaned at by
my missus for not tidying up. I don’t
get any special dispensation.”
Rowett doesn’t do social media,
joking that if he needs to hear abuse
from the fans, he just turns up for a
home game.
But it still hurts.
“I think it might have been difficult
for my kids at Derby,” he said.
“They don’t say a lot but some of
the things they tell you afterwards,
about the abuse they have had on
social media...
“That’s just because their surname
is the same as yours. It shouldn’t be
like that, but that’s the job and that’s
life these days.”
Rowett doesn’t need telling a cup
upset is the last thing he needs.
“We can’t afford to lose any more
games – let alone against a side in a
division below us,” he said.
“They’ll be up for it but I’m not
worried at all. I haven’t got a single
ounce of worry about what happens
because you can’t think like that.
“I’ve been sacked after winning a
game with the team one point off the
play-offs. I know how it works.
“The magnitude of our situation
amplifies things. We’ve lost two in 12
but I appreciate our results haven’t
been good enough.”
Stoke have made the loan deals
of Benik Afobe and Ryan Woods
permanent for a combined £20m.

SIGN OF THE
TIMES: Some
Stoke fans make
their feelings known
In-demand Tammy eyeing up Wolves swap
TAMMY ABRAHAM has been left out of the
Aston Villa line-up today as he inches closer to
a switch to Wolves.
The on-loan Chelsea striker has been a huge
hit at Championship outfit Villa, who host
Swansea in the FA Cup this afternoon.
Abraham, 21, has smashed 16 goals in 20
games for the Midlanders but is tempted by a
switch to the Premier League.
And the forward is now talking with parent
club Chelsea about their option to recall him
before loaning him to Wolves.
Villa boss Dean Smith said: “It’s Tammy’s
■ by JAMES NURSEY
choice if he wants to stay or not. I don’t think
Chelsea will push him.
“Whether they want to pull him away to go on
loan to a Premier League club, we’re not in
control of that.
“It will solely be the player’s decision. I’ve
told Tammy I don’t think it would be a great
decision for him. He’s in a win-win situation
here. We will create chances for him, he’s
taking them and scoring goals.
“I’ve told him to go with his gut feeling. If that
is to stay at Villa and become a legend – as he
could be the one who fires us back to the
Premier League – I would be only too happy.
“He’s got 40,000 fans singing his name at the
moment and that can only be a good feeling
for a 21-year-old lad. But it’s his decision.”
Chelsea have until the middle of the month to
activate the recall option.
Players are not allowed to represent three
clubs in the same season but it is understood
Abraham’s previous appearances for Chelsea
in the Community Shield and an Under-23s
game are unlikely to scupper a deal.
■
GOAL-DEN BOY:
Tammy Abraham
Fighting
“I cannot promise anything.
“He is a player I looked at
when I came here.
“I knew he had a really
bad injury and when I
became manager the staff
told me how many months
he would be out.
“He is fighting to be part
of the squad.”
Everton have won just one
of their last eight games
and have lost their last two
at Goodison Park.
But they still harbour
hopes of ending their 24year wait for silverware
having last lifted the trophy
in 1995.
Silva said: “The importance to be close or to win a
trophy at this club is big.
“When you look to the
past, this club won many,
many things but in the last
years the club didn’t do
that.
“What I will tell you for
sure, irrespective of the
competition, we have big
respect for our desire and
our fans’ desire to play in
the next round and to have
a good run.”

NO-HOPERS: Rafa

THAT’S RITCH!
MATT RITCHIE has called on
his Newcastle team-mates
to rediscover the spirit which
earned them a top-half finish
last season.
Ritchie is becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of self-belief within
the squad.
And he didn’t hold back in the wake of
their eighth home defeat at the hands of
Manchester United in midweek which
plunged Rafa Benitez’s side back in the
relegation mire.
“The whole place just lacks belief,”
said the former Bournemouth winger.
“The feeling in the stadium was that
once we went one behind, it was done.
We have to keep believing.
“That is the main thing. Confidence
and desire too.

STEVE BRUCE is vowing to
show Aston Villa they were
wrong to sack him – by claiming
a record-busting fifth promotion
to the Premier League.
Bruce is still hurting from
getting the bullet at Villa in
October, just five months
after guiding them to the
Championship play-off final
which they lost to Fulham.
But taking new club Sheffield
Wednesday back to the top flight
after a 19-year absence will heal
the wounds for the former
Manchester United skipper.

belief and the fans as well. It is about
reaction and we need to react better
because we do have that threat.”
Newcastle were in a similar position to
where they are now 12 months ago, only
to pull away from the foot of the table
and finish 10th.
Ritchie added: “Last season we were
fantastic. We need to go again now.
“We’re in a fight and while we knew it
would be tough this season, we need to
roll our sleeves up and get on with it.
This is where we find out if we have got
the characters and the belief and determination to achieve what we did last
season. Hopefully we can come together
and really pull through.”
This year marks the 50th anniversary
of Newcastle’s last major triumph, when
Bob Moncur lifted the Fairs Cup in 1969.
Barren
But even Toon boss Benitez doesn’t
hold out much hope of their barren run
ending in FA Cup glory in May, delivering a thinly-veiled dig at Mike Ashley’s
running of the club. Newcastle have won
just five FA Cup ties under his owner-
ship and have not gone past round four
in 13 years.
Benitez said: “I can see the potential
here but it will be difficult if we don’t
change something in the future.”
He will give a start to England
Under-20s World Cup-winning keeper
Freddie Woodman, while fit-again
Florian Lejeune could also figure
in a much-changed side against
Blackburn at St James’ Park today.
“You can achieve what you want to
achieve by doing the right things at the
right time or by spending money and each
club has its own way,” added Benitez.
Bruce out to make Owls top flight
wait to set about the task of
adding to the record he shares
with Cardiff’s Neil Warnock as a
four-time promotion winner from
the Championship.
Bruce (right) has achieved that
twice each with Birmingham and
Hull and his No.2 Steve Agnew
said: “Nothing would give Steve
greater pleasure than to get to
the Premier League with
Wednesday.
“That’s what he is striving to
do now – and I can tell you he’s
really got the bit between his
teeth after what happened at

Villa. We were 90 minutes off
being in the Premier League but
it didn’t work out. Even so, we
were still a little bit surprised
when we did leave Villa.
“After that, Steve
always kept saying to
me the next job has to
be the right club.
“He’s been
appointed here and
he is absolutely
delighted because
he feels this is a club
that matches his ambition.
Wednesday are a club with a rich
history and tradition, a terrific
stadium and unbelievable
support. There are so many
attractive things about them.
“It may be February 1
when he starts but Steve
is hard-working and
he’ll be on the phone
in daily contact.
“I’ve no doubt he’ll
be closer than
people think and,
when he does come
in and with all the
conversations that we will have
had, I’m sure he’ll hit the ground
running.”
Agnew and Bruce’s long-time
first-team coach Stephen
Clemence are taking temporary
charge of the Wednesday team,
starting with today’s FA Cup
third-round tie at home to
League One Luton.
Agnew added: “Luton are a

and now they are very close to
the top of League One, so they
are not to be underestimated.”

have to keep going and
play every game and try to

The pressure to get the
job done is building on the
Liverpool, who have not
won the title since 1990.
And Fernandinho insists
there will be no let-up as
City hunt down the Reds.
He said: “We have a point
to prove every game, even
after last season where we
reached 100 points.”
City host Rotherham in
the FA Cup tomorrow as
they look to keep alive their
hopes of a quadruple.
Fernandinho insists City
will show no mercy, adding:
“We will try to play with the
same intensity as always.”
Meanwhile, 19-year-old
Brahim Diaz is set to quit
City for Real Madrid in a
deal worth up to £20m.
The number of attacking
midfielders at the club has
limited first-team chances
for Diaz, who has rejected
the chance to sign an
improved contract at the
Etihad, telling Guardiola he
wants to return to Spain.
Real will pay an initial fee
of £15m for the Spanish
Under-21 international,
rising to £20m depending
on how well Diaz does in
the Spanish capital.
The attacking midfielder
has agreed a long-term deal
worth around £70,000 a
week after being promised
regular appearances.

ROTHERHAM manager Paul
Warne has called on his

Not many give the

But Warne said: “I know
whatever 11 I put out on
Sunday, they will give it a
right go.
“We can win with a little
bit of magic. We know how
phenomenal they are, but
our saving grace is that in
football you don’t have to
be the best team to win.
“It’s an unfair sport.
“You don’t have to be the
best team, you don’t have
to create the most chances,
you don’t have to have the
most possession – you just
have to score more.
“Whether we can go to
Man City and score
numerous goals, I don’t
know. I’ll send the lads out
with positivity and
hopefully they can make a
right name for themselves.
“You just never know, it
could be our day with a bit
of luck or a set-piece.”

I’M JEALOUS

O’Shea fancies hero’s
dream job at United
JOHN O’SHEA was given one
of the greatest moments of his
life by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
But today the former Manchester United
defender is ready to hand his ex-team-mate
a bloody nose and his first defeat as their
manager.
At the age of 18 he cheered from behind
the goal at the Nou Camp as Solskjaer fired
home in injury time to win the 1999
Champions League Final against Bayern
Munich and complete a glorious Treble.
But now in the twilight of his playing
days at Reading, O’Shea is already casting
an envious eye at Solskjaer.
Following the sacking of Jose Mourinho,
the Norwegian, installed as an interim
boss, has brought joy, style and goals back
to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.
And with O’Shea, 37, now looking to move
into coaching, he would love nothing more
than to have such an honour at United.
Incredible
Ahead of today’s lunchtime clash at Old
Trafford he said: “The Treble year was my
first one there.
“For the final the club had brought over
the youth team and reserves.
“They took us to the game, along with
club staff from the canteen, and we were
behind the goal when Ole scored – on the
second level up. It was incredible.
“It doesn’t surprise me how Ole is doing
so far. As a player he had real intelligence
and professionalism.
“He was always ready when called by the
manager and had a great attitude around
the place and treated people with respect.
“I’m hoping to go down the management route, I think I have picked up
things. I’m jealous of Ole, when you look
at the players and club he has. What an
opportunity for him.
“Ultimately, if you coach, your dream is
to manage your country, and the best team
you can, Manchester United and Ireland
for me, they’d be the two dream jobs.”
O’Shea covered every blade of grass at
Old Trafford in his 13 years there and
■ by HECTOR NUNNS
knows today could be his last hurrah at the
famous stadium.
He turned out in all positions, including
emergency striker and even goalkeeper,
winning five Premier League titles, an FA
Cup and a League Cup as well as a large
slab of his 118 caps for Republic of
Ireland.
“There were many personal highlights at
United,” he said.
“My first Premier League was huge for
me in the 2002-03 season – I felt properly
involved and we had a great run to win
that league.
“I won trophies. In 2009 we won the league
and I played in the Champions League
Final defeat against Barcelona in Rome.
“There were plenty of highlights and
medals. I cherish them. In the 2004 FA Cup
run we beat Arsenal in the semi-final at
Villa Park. We knew we would then be
favourites against Millwall, and won.
“But I am disappointed not to have
more FA Cup winners’ medals. We lost
against Arsenal on penalties in the final
in Cardiff and should have won.
“Then we lost to Chelsea at Wembley.
Giggsy had the ball across the line but
there was no goal-line technology to help.”
There were other moments that stand out
for O’Shea, now embroiled in a battle to
stay in the Championship with relegationhaunted Reading, who lost 4-0 to United at
the same stage in 2017.
A stoppage-time winner at Anfield always
goes down well with United fans as did his
chip and ice-cool celebration at Highbury
in a 4-2 win at Arsenal.
He savours those moments but is hoping
for one more today.
“I remember Jesse Lingard nutmegging
me for some skills video,” he said. “I’d take
another of those from him if we could pull
off a shock.
“I had shock wins at Old Trafford with
Sunderland and we also won there in the
League Cup semi-final on penalties too.
“But I know how tough it’s going to be.
It’s going to be a great challenge.”

BOSS IS GUNNAR
DO IT WITH STYLE
LUKAKU TO
SCORE FIRST
14/5
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER believes playing
style is the key to him
getting the Manchester
United job on a
permanent basis.
Solskjaer, caretaker
until May, has won his
first four games and is
looking to equal legendary ex-boss Sir Matt
Busby by making it five
out of five when the Reds
face Reading today in the
FA Cup third round.
Although Tottenham’s
Mauricio Pochettino is
first choice to take over at
Old Trafford, Solskjaer is
making a case to be
handed the job.
The Norwegian believes
playing with pace and
flair, in the traditional
United way, will determine
if he gets the job full-time.
Asked what it will take
for him to be a genuine
candidate, Solskjaer said:
“Get to the summer with
people talking about the
style we’re playing, that it
reminds them of Sir Alex
Ferguson’s team and the
successful times. And, of
■by DAVID McDONNELL
course, winning trophies.
If you can get to the final
of the FA Cup and get a
trophy.
“That was my last game
for United, we lost an FA
Cup Final [to Chelsea in
2007]. That was a tough
last year. Let’s see in May
if it’s a success or not.”
Solskjaer, who endured
a miserable nine-month
spell in charge of Cardiff,
admitted some clubs are
a better fit for managers
than others.
Best
And United is perfect
for him as he understands what makes it tick.
“I tried my best and did
whatever I could at
Cardiff but it was not the
right fit for me or them,”
said Solskjaer.
“Molde fits me very well,
Man United fits me very
well. It’s ingrained in you.
I understand the club.
“Cardiff was a great
experience but maybe
not the best decision.”
Alexis Sanchez – a
major disappointment
since his move from
Arsenal a year ago – will
start today, with Solskjaer
convinced the £500,000-aweek forward will end up
proving his worth.
“He’s a quality player
and he’ll get the chances
to get the best out of
himself,” he said.
And he has warned his
players their upcoming
warm-weather break is
not a holiday.
Solskjaer takes his
squad to Dubai for the
four-day training camp
after the match with
Reading.
United are staying at
the five-star One & Only
Royal Mirage Arabian
Court but Solskjaer has
told his players they are
mistaken if they think the
trip is designed for them
to have a mid-season
break.
He said: “If any of the
players think it’s a holiday,
they’re wrong. We’re there
to stick together and to
work hard.”

ROB’S RILED

ANDY ROBERTSON has accused Manchester City of
celebrating their win over Liverpool like they had just
won the title.
City are on cloud nine after the thrilling 2-1 triumph
over Jurgen Klopp’s men at the Etihad on Thursday.
Goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane inflicted
the first league defeat of the season on the Reds.

“I am looking forward to

“My main target is to

striker, hopefully I can get
a few for the team and
help the team get wins.”
Solanke’s arrival raises
fresh doubt over Wilson’s
future on the South Coast.
Chelsea are keen to
sign the £30m-rated
England striker in this
month’s transfer window
but Bournemouth had
been hoping to hold them
off until the summer.
Wilson, 26, has scored
48 goals in 126 league
games for Eddie Howe’s
men, including 10 this
season.
Solanke joined
Liverpool from Chelsea
last season but started
only five Premier League
games for them.
Bournemouth boss
Howe said: “Dominic is
technically gifted, very
athletic and has the
physical profile that will
give us something
different in our front line.
“He has done very well
for England at various
age groups, has a huge
amount of potential and
I’m really excited about
working with him.”
Solanke will be joined
by Anfield team-mate
Nathaniel Clyne, who is
joining the Cherries on
loan until the summer.
Bournemouth were

But Fernando Llorente’s hat-trick will at
least give the Spurs manager some faith in
his back-up striker, as the Premier League
giants stuck seven past League Two
Tranmere last night.
Son scored one and set up two in nine
second-half minutes to kill off this FA Cup
third-round clash.
The South Korean may not have as
much influence as Harry Kane on this
side, but with Tottenham fighting for
four trophies this season, Pochettino
needs all the attacking armoury at his
disposal as they tussle it out for the
Premier League, Champions League, FA
Cup and Carabao Cup.
Llorente finding where the goal is again

Llorente who fed Son for an early chance,
only for his shot to be saved by Tranmere

There were 74 places between these sides
in the League system but Rovers boss
Micky Mellon hoped this was a game to
remind the country they are “still here”.

Spurs needed a stunning
opening goal from Serge Aurier to
open the floodgates. Poch said: “It
took us a while, we knew it was
never going to be an easy game, it
was all about attitude today.
“We had to give them a lot of
respect and they made it very
difficult for us in the first half.
“When you come to a place like
this, they’re obviously up for it
and their team are defending well,
making it difficult for us, and it
took a bit of quality in the end.”
The Spurs boss said he brought
Kane on late to show respect to
the fans, adding: “They’re not
going to have many chances to
see Harry Kane play here in a
competition like the FA Cup.”
Tranmere boss Micky Mellon
said Tottenham capitalised on his
League Two side’s mistakes.
“We got punished very, very

But just as hopes started to grow

finding the top corner from 25 yards.
And three minutes after the restart Son
burst down the right to cut back for
Llorente, who fired home.
Harvey Gilmour had a shot tipped over

Spurs scored two in three minutes to seal
their place in the fourth round.
Son, after a lovely turn to find space, teed
up Aurier to fire the third and the South
Korean got his deserved goal when he
rolled one past Davies in the 57th minute.
Oliver Skipp then set up Llorente for the
fifth in the 71st minute and the Spaniard
secured the match ball moments later when
he turned home Lucas Moura’s cross.
Pochettino even gave Kane a run out and
the England striker got in on the act with
eight minutes to go, lifting the ball over the
