T’ball: 02 THE DRONE ARRANGER ■■ by CIARAN DALY US troops posted in the UK are using technology which can take control of enemy drones. The so-called NINJA system – “Negation of Improvised Non-state Joint Aerial-threats” – overrides the hostile drone’s command system and sends new instructions. Defence firm Leonardo has helped RAF Mildenhall and Lakenheath, both in Suffolk, install the tech as part of its anti-drone programme. A spokesman for the firm said: “You can take control of it, if it is coming at you with Rape battle ■Protesters offer their support to a British woman who was convicted of lying about being raped by 12 men. The 21-year-old student from Derby is appealing against the decision in Cyprus. ■She is said to be “upbeat” about the ruling at the Supreme Court in Nicosia. Tech hijacks enemy craft ...and sends ’em back! explosives you could move it to a different safe place on the base. Or tell it to go home, follow it and arrest the operator.” The system was developed by the US Air Force Research Laboratory. It enables operatives to electronically take control of hostile drones and move them to a safe location. This is to stop people disrupting RAF training by flying shop-bought drones over military airspace. NINJA is being integrated into the RAF’s existing antidrone ORCUS technology, which had been rolled out since drone sightings caused major disruption to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The new tech comes as part of a £6billion drive by the British armed forces to modernise their weapons and technology. This week, the Ministry of Defence announced it will invest £72.5million into directed energy weapons for use on Royal Navy frigates and tanks. news@dailystar.co.uk

Photos from North Korean state media showed a green rocket rising from a train parked on tracks in a mountainous area. South Korea had reported the missiles were fired from the central inland area of Yangdok. The missiles flew 497 miles before striking a “target” in the sea off North Korea’s east coast.

Give him Glasgow kiss.. or just walk PIERS’ big decision after TELLy bust-up ■ EXCLUSIVE by ED GLEAVE PIERS Moron wanted to headbutt Alex Beresford during their bust-up on Good Morning Britain. The pair clashed in a row over mental health on the ITV show earlier this year. When Mr Moron started getting lectured by weatherman Alex, 40, he stormed off. And Mr Moron, 56, now admits that he walked out to avoid things turning nasty. He said: “I shouldn’t have walked off the show when I did. “Walking off because the deputy stand-in weather guy says something annoying, I wasn’t quite in control of my faculties. It was either that or give him a Glasgow kiss. I decided that wouldn’t go down very well.” Mr Moron quit the show ROW: Piers goes. Below, Alex within hours, and months later there is still bad blood between the pair. Mr Moron said: “I haven’t spoken to Alex since then.” Good Morning Britain has suffered a ratings crisis since he quit. But Mr Moron says there is no chance of him going back. He added: “I don’t have any regrets about leaving. One of the privileges is I haven’t got to get out of bed that early.” Star Says: Page 8 edward.gleave@dailystar.do.uk

The waterfront property in Poole Harbour, Dorset, went for £10million. It was sold by Topps Tiles founder Barry Bester, who bought it from former football manager and I’m A Celeb winner Redknapp and his wife Sandra for £6.9m in 2015. Entrepreneur Bester has since lavished £2m on refurbishing the mock-Tudor mansion, including having a £40,000 golf simulator built in the grounds. Harbour Gate, on the Sandbanks peninsula, also comes with a three-bedroom detached gatehouse which by itself would probably be worth £1m. Steve Isaacs, of estate agents Luxury and Prestige, who handled the sale, said: “The house occupies arguably the best position on Sandbanks. “We have got unprecedented demand for highend waterside homes at the moment.” WORD OF BISCUIT: A small baked unleavened cake, typically crisp, flat, and sweet, as in “a chocolate biscuit”.

Since when was Weetabix a biscuit?” Charity chiefs hit back, replying: “According to Google the answer is SLAM DUNK: Theo and the tweets ‘since 1932’.” They included a screenshot of the search engine’s answer to its own question in which the cereal is called “biscuits”.

8 DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 Says Deliver a fair wage IT’S always nice to be in demand. And such is the need for lorry drivers to plug the growing shortages, the lucky truckers are almost beginning to feel harassed. Apparently smooth-talking recruiters have started loitering around greasy spoons at truck-stops in the hope of bagging themselves more HGV drivers for firms including supermarkets. They’re even said to be offering them lucrative £100,000-a-year deals to jump cabs. Some of the bewildered drivers must be close to choking on their fried slice. But hopefully this is a step-change for the industry. For too long these vital workers haven’t got enough credit. And now we’ve seen just what happens when the industry goes to pot. So it’s about time we started treating them right. That means better pay for a sustained period and better conditions. Otherwise we’ll be sleepwalking into the next crisis. Honk! Honk! Piers not such a hit WE’re suddenly having grave doubts about our campaign to put Piers Moron in Number 10. Yes, he was very good at holding politicians to account during the pandemic. Plus he did keep us entertained during a bleak time. But he showed weakness when he flounced out of Good Morning Britain. And now Mr Moron’s revealed he wanted to chin Alex Beresford for daring to question him, we’re definitely not so sure. Putting aside the fact we’d have believed that if we’d seen it, there’s really no place for a Prime Minister prone to a Glasgow kiss.

The TV host was initially “anxious” about stepping out in a corset and heels as Brad Majors in the camp stage extravaganza. But his wife Portia was immediately enthusiastic. Speaking on Vicky Pattinson’s podcast, the 2016 Strictly champion said: “I remember when I was asked about doing the show and I was like, ‘um... OK, I might need to ask Portia, and see what her vibe is’. “Immediately she was like, ‘oh, my God, you have to do that show. The idea of you coming out in your pants every night makes me actually howl’ – and I took it in a heartbeat. “But I’ve got to say, I was a bit anxious about stepping out in a corset and heels. “Thanks to lockdown and the change of perspective it gave me, I was like, ‘this is exactly how I’m coming out of lockdown – in a corset, knickers, stockings and a three-inch heels – somebody stop me!’” FACT OF BRITS scoff an average 25.7 pounds of cheese a year... about half the amount eaten by the French.

Recruiters are pulling up at transport stops and approaching truckers over their fried breakfasts with “astronomical” pay deals due to the drivers’ shortage. They are believed to be working for staffing agencies who supply some supermarkets. Daily rates being offered would add up to the equiva- lent of £100,000 a year. A trucker called Barney told Naga Munchetty’s BBC Radio 5 Live show he was approached in a transport cafe. He said: “A very, very well-dressed guy came in with a briefcase. He offered me £2,000 if I would sign a two-year contract to work for his driver’s agency. “I was taken aback a bit – £2,000 is a lot of money. “The figures he was coming up with are figures I’ve not heard of before.” Barney, of Milton Keynes, Bucks, was offered five night shifts a week paying £27 per hour, with timeand-a-half for Saturdays ■■ by STEVE HUGHES and double-time for Sundays. He said: “I mean, my boss doesn’t earn that. The money is astronomical.” But Barney, a Class One driver for 17 years, was not interested as he said he loves his current job.

But critics have branded the Government’s plan “fascist” and “racist” – and compared it to Russia and China’s state-controlled telly networks. The row emerged after Tory MP John Whittingdale announced plans to make it a legal requirement for UK programmes to have a “distinctively British” DNA. In his final speech as media minister before he was booted out of the post, he identified Carry On flicks, Dad’s Army, Blackadder, Gogglebox, Fleabag and Bake Off as meeting the requirement. He said: “Keeping the British spirit and identity alive is a challenge in today’s global broadcasting world, when investment is increasingly driven by global streaming services.” Social media was hit with mockery and outrage, with one critic tweeting a picture of Del Boy with the message: “Sounds a bit Putin’s Russia to me.” Another sneered: “I think the final episode of Blackadder Goes Forth SUITABLE: Fleabag represents today’s Britain pretty well – people being condemned to a terrible fate by an idiot leader.” And Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee, 41, said she “can’t be dealing” with the show being called “distinctively British”. news@dailystar.co.uk OFFBEAT: Derry Girls’ creator was not impressed Wicked Harv’s escape ■Evil drug dealer Harvey Gaskell breaks out of a prison van in Corrie.

You’d expect mellow rockers like On The Wrong Side, or Time’s tender balladry. The big shock is Lindsey’s foray into dance music. Combining his trademark guitar solos with breakbeats on Swan Song works brilliantly. Time for the ’Mac to make something as fresh. Duran’s FESTIVAL NERVES POP legends Duran Duran have done it all in their career – but they still get nervous playing festivals. The Wild Boys headline Isle Of Wight on Sunday, admitting they aren’t as experienced as many newcomers with festival culture. Singer Simon Le Bon told me: “Most bands now start their career playing festivals. “We came to festivals pretty late and we don’t have that tradition. “It’s only really in the last 10 years that we’ve stepped up our contribution to festivals. “We haven’t played a big show for two years, so it’s going to be exciting and daunting at the same time. “After so long away, I’m not just thinking, ‘Will I remember the words?’ but also if I can look relaxed in front of a crowd. The only way to know for sure is to get back up there, and that’s always been great.” The gents made their comeback with two homecoming shows at Birmingham Institute this week to preview stunning new album Future Past, out October 22. New single Anniversary marks 40 years since Duran’s self-titled debut album was released. Bassist John Taylor admitted: “We were asked what to do to celebrate the anniversary, and a song felt such an obvious move, we resisted it at first. “Once we got into the idea, Anniversary became so much fun. “It has nods to some of our biggest songs, like Hungry Like The Wolf and The Wild Boys. Future Past is forward thinking, but it’s a real celebration too and there are a few other hints to our past in the music.” Keyboardist Nick Rhodes hailed Graham Coxon’s contribution after the Blur guitarist played on and co-wrote the whole album. Nick explained: “We’re a pretty tough room to walk into, because we can virtually guess what each other is thinking. “But Graham fitted in straight away and was able to join in dictating the direction of the songs. “Being in a British band like Blur, Graham is used to all the jokes. “With British bands, it’s constant poking and prodding. You’re either the centre of a joke or coming up with one. “Graham was like one of us.” caught live NEAR the end of their comeback gig, pop icons Duran Duran mixed classic hit Girls On Film with Acceptable In The 80s by Calvin Harris. It was a cheeky move typical of a fun atmosphere. A warm-up gig for Sunday’s Isle Of Wight Festival headliner, the 1,500 fans made enough noise singing along to smashes like The Reflex and Ordinary World to rival a main-stage crowd. Next DURAN DURAN O2 Institute Birmingham month’s new album Future Past is stellar – but Duran were sensible by only playing three new songs. Everyone had come for the oldies – and Duran didn’t disappoint. Simon was in great voice, powerfully roaring The Wild Boys and Notorious, tenderly crooning Come Undone. The final Rio was the most deafening of the lot. Still on top after 40 years. 8612 7453 or email james.cabooter@dailystar.co.uk DON BROCO / Amazing Things ★★★ POISED to join Bring Me The Horizon as Brit metal’s big hitters, the Bedford rockers don’t take the easy path on album four. They mix hard beats (Endorphins), epic ballads (One True Prince) and tongue-in-cheek pop (Bruce Willis). When they get it right – Anaheim is especially blistering – it makes for some amazing moments. JAMES VINCENT McMORROW / Grapefruit Season ★★★ FRESH from guesting on Rudimental’s new album, the Dubliner continues his overdue bid to go mainstream. Where JV used to be leftfield like Bon Iver, he now veers towards EDM, R&B and pop. Hollywood And Vine is bright and fruity. Poison is a massive ballad Lewis Capaldi would kill for. With this much variety, James is a man for all seasons. LIL NAS X / Montero ★★★★ REMEMBER when Old Town Road remixes were dropping weekly? Turns out LNX was planning a great debut. Mixing styles and keeping it tuneful like vintage Kanye, you’ll find summer jams (That’s What I Want), heartbreak (Void), futuristic grooves (Lost In The Citadel) and wild rock (Life After Salem).

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 15 ■PACKED: The deckchairs are out at Weymouth LAST RAYS OF SUMMER MOTORS: Daniel Craig Perfect 10 for spy car TEN different Aston Martin supercars have been used to make the new Bond film No Time To Die. New behind-the-scenes pictures show the Aston Martin DB5s, eight of which were specifically made for the flick, against the backdrop of the stone city of Matera, Italy. But it is uncertain how many of them were still in one piece after filming. During the production of Spectre in 2015, 10 Aston Martins were used – and seven were destroyed. Spectre boasts a movie record of £24million-worth of motors, including a Land Rover, being wrecked during filming. The Aston Martin DB5 plays a prominent role in the trailers for No Time To Die, as Daniel Craig’s James Bond and love interest Madeleine Swann – played by Léa Seydoux – come under attack by a gang of machine-gun wielding thugs.

Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: “It’ll be 23C or 24C in the south and in the high teens for the north. “There’s plenty more fine weather to come in many places... with eastern Scotland, much of England and Wales seeing warm sunshine.” Parts of the UK will today be hotter than Spanish capital Madrid, as well as holiday hotspots Nice in France and Faro in Portugal. Mr McGivern said that the UK had been “much warmer than average for the first half of September”. But he warned that the summer vibes are not expected to last, with more rainfall and gales on the way.

Lingo expert Prof Willem Hollmann wants the national curriculum updated to include speech variations such as northerners’ use of “I were” instead of “I was”. He said the Queen’s English – known as Received Pronunciation (RP) – was just the most “socially prestigious” accent.

The standard is not necessarily correct.” Studies show pupils are bullied for not sounding the same and teachers – espe- DANGER: Pupils could face bullying cially in the North and Midlands – “posh up” their accents to advance their careers.

DS1ST Drivers to take charge MOST electric car drivers will only need to plug in once every three weeks. And hardly any will have to rely on public charging points, says a study. The average motorist clocks up around 108 miles a week – about a third of the distance of a fully charged electric vehicle. Ashley Andrew, of Hyundai UK which did the study, said: “We’ve found the barriers to making the switch for first-time electric owners are education on how the car will fit into your lifestyle, as well as getting to grips with different terminology.” DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 21 MERSE: DIY FIXED ALL MY DEMONS Former addict loving his new life of ‘normality’ ■■ by david o’dornan PAUL Merson has bounced back from his booze, drugs and gambling hell with a new addiction – DIY.

He explained: “Nothing special in that, is there? But it was for me, because at the age of 52 it was something I’d never done before. “Once I’d started drinking, I didn’t know how to stop. “Now I’m manning the grill. All I’ve wanted my entire life is to be normal – take the kids to the park, sit in the garden, Sunday roast – and be someone my family could rely on.” He added: “Normality is the ultimate for me.

DS1ST Pictures: SWNS DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 23 Who wants to keep 70 moggies? CULLED: Geronimo Alpaca last day is still a mystery The owner of Geronimo is accusing officials of hiding behind a “wall of silence” over how he was killed. Helen Macdonald said the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs had still not told her where, how and when the alpaca was put down. She added: “The Government continue to make this as distressing and as difficult as possible. “They are using every tactic they can to prevent any disclosure, and indeed any closure for myself and everyone who campaigned to save Geronimo’s life. “Defra know very well that the information they are refusing to provide will not support their claim that there was any suspicion of bovine TB in Geronimo.” The alpaca was taken from Ms Macdonald’s farm near Wickwar, Glos, on August 31 after twice testing positive for bovine TB. Dr Christine Middlemiss, the UK’s chief veterinary officer, said a postmortem showed “a number of TB-like lesions”.

26 DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 MOVIES with ANDY LEA STAR RATINGS ★★★★★ Excellent ★★★★ Good ★★★ Worth a look ★★ Poor ★ Don’t bother DS1ST Queen of the night EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE Cert 12A ★★★ Selected cinemas and on Amazon Prime now According to this feel-good musical, the most important thing in life is to be true to one’s self. In the spirit of that message, I confess to finding some of the sequences in this stagey adaptation of the smash West End show rather painful. For many, the titular routine will be a delight. But for me, a tsunami of winces erupted as a troupe of twentysomething drama-school graduates in school uniforms loudly spread rumours about Jamie through the medium of dance. Still, those more accustomed to the ROSE PLAYS JULIE Cert 15 ★★★★ In cinemas now over-the-top conventions of the West End stage (and not scarred by childhood memories of Rod Hull’s Pink Windmill Show) should find plenty here to enjoy. The film’s greatest asset is its lead. Age aside, 24-year-old newcomer Max Harwood is perfectly cast as gay schoolboy Jamie New. We meet him on the morning of his 16th birthday as he’s lugging a bag of newspapers up the hilly streets of Sheffield while dreaming of becoming a drag queen. A plan to release his outrageous alter ego at his school prom puts him on a collision course with his homophobic dad (Ralph Ineson), a rule-bound teacher (Sharon This sounds like another worthy issue-based family drama but co-writers and directors Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor toy with those expectations as their script takes some very unexpected twists and turns. Student vet Rose (Ann Skelly) is learning how to euthanise large animals at her Dublin university. But her mind’s focus isn’t on the grisly lessons. She’s just tracked down her birth mother, a jobbing London-based actress called Ellen (Orla Brady). After her initial approach is rebuffed, Rose turns into a stalker, turning up on a film set then posing as a house buyer so she can root through Ellen’s possessions. Clearly, something is not right with this troubled young woman. After finally engineering a meeting with Ellen, she learns the dark story of her adoption. In response, Rose takes on the persona of Julie (the name on her birth certificate) to get dangerously close to her biological father, a sinister archaeologist named Peter (Aidan Gillen). Molloy and Lawlor stage this unusual family reunion with pitch-black comedy and nail-biting suspense. ‘‘ Charismatic Harwood has the moves and voice to carry the showstoppers RUMOURS Will Jamie’s classmates accept his drag queen alter ego? Horgan) and a school bully (Samuel Bottomley). Thankfully, his mum (Sarah Lancashire) is supportive and local drag clobber seller Hugo Battersby (Richard E Grant) agrees to act as his mentor. The charismatic Harwood has the moves and the voice to carry the play’s showstoppers. But there are quieter, more reflective songs too and one original number written and sung by Holly Johnson. Here the film leaves the feelgood formula behind to deliver a refreshingly cinematic montage about the history of gay rights. The title song is my latest earworm but I suspect this sequence will be my most enduring memory. STALKERAnn Skelly as Rose, who sets out to track her birth mother 12 MIGHTY ORPHANS Cert 12A ★★★ In cinemas now We know pretty much where this true story is heading from the off. Archive footage takes us to the Great Depression of the 1930s, as Martin Sheen’s honeyed voiceover introduces us to The Mighty Mites, an American football team who defied the odds. This is an CROWDPLEASERUnderdogs triumph in touching true story underdog sports movie. There will be triumph over adversity, seemingly insurmountable obstacles and a rousing finale. Luke Wilson plays saintly PE teacher and war hero Rusty Russell who uproots his English teacher wife Juanita (Vinessa Shaw) and two young daughters from their comfortable life in Texas to the dustbowl of Fort Worth to take a job in an impoverished school for orphans. Determined to motivate his unruly charges, he takes on far better resourced schools in the high-school football league. As he has just 12 players, he knows he and Sheen’s boozy assistant coach will have to rely on us-versus-them psychology and innovative tactics. Early successes turn the lads into national celebrities until rival schools resort to dirty tricks. It’s predictable but this rousing and unshowy crowdpleaser proves that the old formula still works. parodyKaren Gillan heads up a brilliant cast in a terrible film GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE Cert 15 ★ In cinemas, NOW and Sky Cinema now If you haven’t seen an action movie since the mid 90s, prepare to be amazed by this hyper-stylised bloodbath. Sadly, I suspect every cinemagoer and Sky Cinema subscriber will recognise at least one of the far better movies this far-from-explosive film attempts to rip off. A fatally miscast Karen Gillan plays Sam, a charisma-free version of Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill assassin who does a Léon by breaking a contract to protect an innocent young girl (Chloe Coleman) in a heightened John Wick-style fantasy world of rule-based organised crime. After teaming up with her estranged killer mum (Lena Headey) and her Kingsman-esque secret society of gun-toting librarians (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino), Sam has to fight off a gang of goons sent by a Russian crime lord (Ralph Ineson) seeking revenge for the assassination of his son (John Wick again). Director Navot Papushado’s use of garish neon colours and consciously artificial sets is more likely to induce headaches than gasps of admiration. The dialogue is witless, the heroine is dull and, worst of all, the fights scenes are unconvincing. After nearly two hours, we get to the finale – a sub-Zack Snyder slow-motion gunfight ironically cut to a Dylan cover – and this shallow spectacle has tipped into self-parody.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 27 peter.dyke@dailystar.co.uk celebrity masterchef special with Peter Dyke and Ed Gleave edward.gleave@dailystar.co.uk ■FINALISTS: Megan, Joe and Kadeena ★THE heat is well and truly on… it’s the final of Celebrity MasterChef! Former EastEnders actor Joe Swash, reality star Megan McKenna and athlete Kadeena Cox are all hoping to cook up a victory. ★Tonight we’ll see them face one last challenge as the series reaches its climax. Judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode will task them with rustling up a three-course dinner. ★Watch it at 9pm on BBC One. Boiling point.. KADEENA COX What has been your highlight of the series? Michel Roux Jr telling me my dish was great. Unreal. How nervous have you been facing the judges? I was nervous every time. Standing in front of them is so nerve-wracking. What was the toughest moment? It was actually at the beginning of the heat – doing two dishes in one hour and 15 minutes. It is one of the hardest challenges you have to do. Who would be your dream guests for a dinner party? Martin Luther King, Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba and Michelle Obama. What would it mean to win? For someone with a disability to overcome the challenge to win while showcasing their ability would be amazing. What will you do next? I am preparing for next year’s European Commonwealth and World Championships while also working on a bakery to get it up and running by the end of the year. How do you feel about doing more cooking shows? I would love to do them. I am really passionate about cooking. Being able to showcase that and learn about different foods would be amazing. JOE SWASH What has been your highlight of the series? Surprising myself. I can say forever: “I’m a MasterChef finalist”, which is brilliant. I never thought I’d be able to say that. How nervous have you been facing the judges? I wasn’t as nervous as other people. I’ve quite enjoyed seeing the judges and finding out what they thought of my food. Because I wasn’t in a world where I have any skills in, I find it hard to be nervous. What was the toughest moment? When I realised it was down to me and Mel Sykes to go and then come back the next day knowing that I was at the bottom, that I could have gone. Who would be your dream guests for a dinner party? Thierry Henry, David Attenborough and Piers Morgan. What would it mean to win? Just getting to the final was really an achievement for me. I haven’t allowed myself to think about winning because otherwise I would get nervous. What will you do next? We’ve got a little baby coming in the next couple of weeks. How do you feel about doing more cooking shows? I’d love to get into the cooking world. I don’t think there’s a lot of chefs out there who are like me. I’m a bit messy and I’m a little bit scatty. Hopefully there’s a market out there somewhere! MEGAN McKENNA What has been your highlight of the series? My lobster ravioli. And the comments I got for that dish: “This could be on a Michelin star menu.” How nervous have you been facing the judges? Every single time that my food was judged I could feel myself shaking. Everything you’ve been practising goes to mush in your head. What was the toughest moment? My chocolate fondant. When it didn’t cook all the way through, I could have burst into tears. I don’t think I talked to anyone for about three hours after that. Who would be your dream guests for a dinner party? Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Prince William. What would it mean to win? It has been such a hard, long journey, which is why it gets to us all. What will you do next? I am playing at the Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday, which will be the biggest crowd I’ve ever done. And I’m supporting Sir Tom Jones at his shows. I’ve also got a single coming up and I’m hoping to go on tour. How do you feel about doing more cooking shows? Definitely. This show has been great.

32 DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 JUST JANE DS1ST JANE O’GORMAN SOLVES YOUR PROBLEMS TODAY ... AND EVERY DAY Wealth but no charm I’m currently dating a wealthy man who buys me gifts and takes me to fancy places. On the outside he looks groomed and refined, but he has some horrible habits. He is outrageously rude to anyone who serves him, and he also has nasty personal habits like eating with his fingers and picking his teeth. Recently, my best mate and her husband invited us out to dinner to celebrate his all-clear from cancer. They were paying but my guy was his usual rude, disgusting self. They were horrified. I never feel like sex whenever he’s grossed me out and that infuriates him. JANE SAYS: How many gifts do you have to receive to make this OK? That night out with your friends should have been a special, celebratory one; it was all about a man who has beaten cancer. Instead, your guy ruined it. If he believes that his wealth allows him to act like a hog, then he is a lost cause. How can you ever have sex with him when he’s so revolting? Wake up and accept that fancy meals don’t make up for the fact that he’s not good enough, and he is never going to change. JANE'S FAB ADVICE LINES *Calls 09057893400 Super sex 09057893401 Brilliant orgasms 09057893402 Is that kinky? 09057893403 Erection problems? Hubby is denying 10-year gay affair how do I trust my guy? Can I ever forgive my husband for having a secret lover? Six weeks ago, someone banged on our door at midnight. My husband looked rattled. He ordered me not to leave the bedroom while he went down to deal with it. I heard raised voices and eventually he came back. He claimed it was an aggressive neighbour begging for money for a taxi (i.e., drugs) who he’d sent on his way. A week later I came home from work and realised that someone had been smoking in our kitchen; there were two mugs in the sink and a wrapper in the bin. My husband muttered that his sister has popped over – but his sister has never smoked. Shouting Then I organised a barbecue for my husband’s birthday. He didn’t want it, but I went ahead. I ordered the food and invited family over anyway. At about 3pm there was a terrible commotion by our back gate. A man was shouting and demanding to be let in. He rushed up to me and introduced himself as my husband’s secret lover. He screamed that he refused to be hidden away for a minute longer, that he felt shunned and SHOCKER: My man has hidden away a lover for the past decade, but now the truth is out hurt. He demanded my husband come clean about their 10-year relationship. My husband looked him in the eye and said: “I have no idea who you are. Please leave.” With that the poor guy threw himself on the grass and wept. Luckily my son-in-law, who is a paramedic, was on hand to calm him down. Now I’ve had several meetings and conversations with the man and the whole story is out. I believe every word he says because everything – dates, details, etc – adds up. I feel sorry for the guy, but my husband still refuses to discuss Do you have a personal or emotional issue? Need to spice up your relationship or sex life? Call these phonelines for Jane O’Gorman’s expert advice on the matters that affect you! 09057893404 Turn your man on 09057893405 Turn your woman on the matter. He won’t even acknowledge knowing the guy. Can our damaged relationship ever be restored? JANE SAYS: I urge you to go and stay with friends or family members in order to clear your head and get some perspective. Give your husband all the time he needs to think about what he’s done (to all of you) and reflect on the truth. Sadly, if he still isn’t willing to talk, then can your relationship survive?

Picture posed by models loving someone when he’s been living a double life? The fact is that he denied his lover to you on three occasions. How can he so cruelly dismiss the man when they’ve been together for a decade? Think of your own emotional and sexual well-being moving forward. What do you want to do next? Even if your husband now dumps this guy, then how can you be sure that he won’t let you down again? Don’t let anyone rush you into making a decision that will define your future. Scared to shop online My partner refuses to shop online. She doesn’t feel safe inputting her card details and will only buy goods in-store. It isn’t helpful when we live miles from a shopping centre. This old-fashioned attitude makes every task take three times longer than it should. She’s already started talking about all the gifts she wants to buy her sister’s children at Christmas. They’re coming to us and internet shopping would help enormously. I keep trying to explain that it’s perfectly safe as long as you’re aware of scams, but she’s not convinced. I’m sick of living with a Luddite. JANE SAYS: We live in a digital age where everything can be bought at the click of a button but, for a lot of people, that can be overwhelming. We read so many stories about trusting individuals getting scammed that it’s easy to get spooked. Take the time to talk through online options (such as PayPal) without losing your temper. Give your partner the facts then leave her to make her own decisions in future. It’s possible she just likes getting out to mix with others. She wants me to pay for sex My girlfriend has started charging me for sex again. She’s short of cash and doesn’t see why she should “give it away for free” as she so charmingly puts it. We had this problem before in 2019 when she was hit with a big tax bill. I love her but can’t pretend that I understand how her mind works. JANE SAYS: Why doesn’t your girlfriend simply ask you for a loan, rather than insult you with this tawdry arrangement? Tell her that you love her and wish to help. Go through her paperwork together in order to find an adult solution and make it clear that you’re not interested in any games that demean you.

34 DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 X MARKS NEW C5 This shot of a tail light doesn’t give us much to go on but this is the new Citroen C5 X, a crossover that, according to its maker, combines the elegance of a saloon with the versatility of an estate and the modernity of an SUV. A bit of everything then. On sale later this year with cars available in UK showrooms in the first quarter of next year, the C5 X features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that has a total of 225bhp and a maximum electric-only range of 34 miles. We’ll no doubt have more details and proper photographs, soon. EV TAKE-UP ‘TOO SLOW’ Interesting analysis from used car market giant Auto Trader suggests that the take-up of EVs isn’t happening fast enough to meet the Government’s ambitious target of banning petrol and diesel cars in 2030. It forecasts that in order for the target to be met, 11% of all new car registrations this year need to be EVs. Currently the percentage is at 8.4%. By 2026 it needs to be up to 54%. Although Auto Trader logs record high levels of interest in EVs among its users, that curiosity is yet to consistently translate into sales. Motormouth with colin goodwin The Vauxhall Corsa is the best selling new car so far this year with 27,381 cars registered by the end of August. The electric Corsa-e is also the best selling electric car in its class – which is no surprise as it’s sensibly priced and has a range of up to 209 miles. The new Astra, which is on its way, will be followed by an electric Astra-e in 2023 – but why so late when the Corsa-e was launched along with the petrol and diesel models? DS1ST reFRESHing POLO Volkswagen has refreshed its current generation Polo, the sixth since the car was launched in 1975. Prices start at £17,855 and there are three trim levels – Life, Style and R-line – which is refreshingly simple. There are four powertrain combinations to choose, all using the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine from 80PS up to 110PS. VW’S ID to raise roof At last week’s Munich motor show – the first major car industry show in Europe in two years – Volkswagen showed off this ID. LIFE concept car. Due to launch in 2025 and expected to cost just under £20,000, it is based on a smaller The lower-powered unit comes only with a five-speed manual gearbox but the others also have the choice of a seven-speed auto. Visually the Polo isn’t much different but the equipment levels have been cranked up, including LED matrix headlamps. A facelifted version of the Polo GTI will be along later. version of the MEB platform used by VW Group’s current EVs (the ID.3, Skoda Enyaq etc). The concept car features a removable roof made of something called air chamber textile that apparently saves weight.

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 35 Duster wipes out all others delight in Dacia’s great-value threesome Not a huge amount has been changed on the latest Dacia Duster, and that’s a very good thing. There’s a new grille design, Y-shape LED lights, a new rear spoiler and not a lot else. Why change such a terrific package? You buy a Dacia Duster because you are not worried about image, keeping up with anybody whether they’re called Jones or not, and because you like value for money. The Duster was launched in the UK in 2013 and I’ve been recommending this car to friends and family, and anyone else who’ll listen, ever since. A few friends followed that advice and are now on their second or third Dacias. Dacia launched this facelifted Duster in Paris and had three different models for us to try. Since we’re all about value with this car, we’ll play our part and give you a triple test in one. But first the range itself. Very few customers in the UK have ever bought the entry-level Access trim level, so Dacia has axed it here. Your cheapest Duster is now the Essential, followed up the price ladder by the Comfort and then Prestige at the top of the tree. the facts Dacia Duster TCe 100 Prestige five-door SUV Price: £16,695 Engine: 1.0-litre three-cylinder, 100bhp 0-62mph: 15.1sec Fuel consumption: 36.7mpg Co2: 145g/km (127g/km on LPG) Because car companies always like to show off all their finest wares, all three of the Dusters that we’re driving are in flagship Prestige trim. This is not the end of the world because the first one that we’re driving is the Prestige TCe 100, which even in poshest trim is only £16,695. Only the dieselengined Duster can be had with 4x4, so this petrol version is two-wheel drive. It also has a six-speed manual gearbox (an automatic gearbox is available on the Duster, but only with the 150PS 1.6-litre engine). One excellent feature of the TCe 100 engine is that it runs not only on petrol but also on LPG or Liquified Petroleum Gas. It’s a fuel that has never quite caught on in the UK, but it has its fans, one of whom is me. Referred to as the Duster TCe 100 Bi-Fuel, the car features a 50-litre petrol tank and a 50-litre LPG tank that together give the Bi-Fuel a range of 767 miles. That’s fantastic. Switching between the two fuels is now done via a simple button on the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel. It’s virtually impossible to tell which fuel you’re running on. There are two fuel gauges to let you know what’s in the tanks. Next up, a short drive around a simple but challenging off-road course that’s been built by Dacia just for us. Now we’re in the Prestige Blue dCi 115 4x4. It’s the most expensive model in the Duster range at an outrageous £20,845. Amazing value. Now fitted with all-year-round tyres as standard, the Duster 4x4 laughs off inclines, demonstrates almost 30 degrees of lean without falling over and abilities that no owner will ever put to the test. ‘‘ I’ve been telling friends to get this car for years and some are on their third Finally, we’re driving the Prestige TCe 150 4x2 EDC – four-cylinder 1.6-litre engine and the new six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. Yours for £20,045. Plenty of power and a smooth-changing automatic gearbox. For town users, it makes a lot of sense. Changes to all the Dusters’ interiors include a new high-centre console with an armrest that retracts 70mm and which also houses a closable 1.1-litre storage compartment. All the interior upholstery materials are new and are better quality than before. Our top-of-therange cars have Dacia’s Media Nav infotainment system with 8in touchscreens with improved graphics. So which out of our threesome is the best buy? That depends on what you want from the car. If you really need fourwheel drive, then the diesel is your only option. As a townie, the automatic version makes most sense for me, but I don’t really need 150bhp in a car like a Duster. No, it’s the Bi-Fuel model that I’d want – the fuel range, potential cost saving, simplicity of the perfectly decent manual gearbox and the pleasant thrum of the three-cylinder engine. Only MG, with its great-value EVs, comes close to Dacia in offering a lot for not much. THE RIVALS Volkswagen T-Cross Active Well-equipped compact SUV that’s a bit boring. £22,270 Nissan Juke Tekna A solid favourite, but doesn’t offer much more in real terms. £23,940 Ford Puma Vignale A bit more power and better to drive, but nine grand better? £25,995

Dubawi Legend was not disgraced in finishing third on the Knavesmire, but Palmer admitted to being disappointed, such is the regard in ■■ by JASON HEAVEY which he is held. The youngster was pencilled in for either the Flying Scotsman or the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster’s St Leger Festival, but following an unsatisfactory scope, he could now step up to Group One level at Newmarket on October 9. “We were so disappointed when he didn’t win the Acomb. “I expect he’ll go straight to the Dewhurst, just because of lack of options.” SOCCERBETTINGHOTLINE We’vebeenfindingwinnersfor30years WinnersintheUK,EuropeandAustralia Atleastthreebankersandnapseveryweek Cal09057570145 Calswilcost£1perminuteplusyourtelephonecompany’snetworkaccesscharge.LinesupdatedTuesday, Wednesday,FridayandSaturdayfrom1pm.ServiceProvider:Spoke.Helpdesk03332023390. 4.50 YESTERDAY’S RESULTS AYR 1.50: 1, GORAK (P Hanagan 10-1); 2, Outbreak (2-7 fav); 3, Oliver’s Army (12-1). 1 3 /4l, 1 1 /4l. 10 ran.

The batsman, 32, said on Twitter: “Considering my immense workload over the last eight-nine years... I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian team in Test and ODI cricket.” Salazar’s setback ■ ATHLETICS Alberto Salazar’s four-year suspension for a series of doping violations has been upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The 63-year-old, who used to coach British Olympic star Mo Farah, had appealed the decision made in 2019. A four-year ban on physician Dr. Jeffrey Brown was also upheld. RUGBY LEAGUE Mamo Mia Jake and Ashton hit right notes JAKE Mamo and Matty Ashton’s first-half blitz proved just enough on a night of incredible Super League drama. In a match full of storylines and sub plots, Castleford-bound Mamo scored twice and created another against his future club. When young full-back Ashton completed his hat-trick early in the second half, the visitors led by 32 points and the Tigers careers of coach Daryl Powell and a host of departing players looked certain to be over. Then Peter Mata’utia – who will join Powell at the Wolves next season – scored twice in four minutes, and by the time Mike Cooper was sent off with 15 minutes to go the gap was down to just eight points. But Warrington somehow regrouped to see the game out, ensuring Powell’s eight-year tenure at the Tigers is now at poching cool on job prospecTS WILLIE Poching wants Wakefield to finish the season on a high, with his own hopes of landing the Trinity job on a permanent basis still up in the air.

Retiring skipper Michael Shenton also suffered the cruellest end to his career when he dislocated his shoulder. At that point the drama that unfolded was unimaginable. The game looked over as a contest inside the opening 32 minutes, by which time the Tigers trailed 0-26. It was Mamo that ensured the home side got off to a nightmare start. He created the first try for Ashton before scoring himself. Stefan Ratchford converted both and added a penalty, before Ashton and Mamo caused havoc again. When Gareth Widdop’s kick downfield took a support another head coach. “The guys are focused on finishing as strongly as possible – they’re itching to go out. “It could have been really disappointing at one stage and we were almost in that relegation fight, but the back end of the season we’ve strung some wins together.” ■ THE RUNNING MEN: Matty Ashton (main pic) and Jake Mamo (above) destroyed Castleford wicked bounce, Ashton was the first to react for his second try. Then Mamo completed his own double. It was 0-32 after Warrington capitalised on another loose ball, Robbie Mulhern this time sending Ashton away for his third. But then Mata’utia scored his quickfire double and when Josh Charnley was sin-binned for a tip tackle on Jordan Turner, the Cas player responded with another home try. Then it was 24-32 when Grant Millington pounced to score in his final game for the Tigers, and shortly afterwards Cooper was dismissed. With 15 minutes left the home side were suddenly unlikely favourites. But a Ratchford penalty eased Warrington’s nerves before Connor Wrench sealed the win – and play-off spots for Leeds and Hull KR – by touching down. RICHARD Agar insists last night’s clash between Castleford and Warrington had no impact on his side’s build-up to tonight’s meeting with Hull KR. Leeds had to wait for the Tigers’ result before knowing whether they must beat the Robins, but Agar (right) maintains that never crossed the players’ minds. He said: “We’ve been preparing for a must-win game against a good team 7.45pm ■■ by GARETH WALKER ADRIAN LAM is playing a game of chess ahead of Wigan’s play-off campaign. The Warriors are guaranteed to finish fourth whatever their result tonight and Lam (inset) has shuffled his pack. He said: “It’s all about moving the chess pieces – we’ve got to take a few things into consideration. “One is our momentum, two is our confidence, three is a really strong performance in front of our home fans and four is to make sure that we get through with the minimal risk of injury, suspension or fatigue. “We’re prioritising what is important to us, and by doing that it’ll give us the best opportunity next week.” woolf hails stand-in duo KRISTIAN Woolf has heaped praised on young half-backs Jack Welsby and Lewis Dodd – as veteran playmaker Jonny Lomax returns. Lomax limped out of the home win over Leigh in late August but is set to make his comeback tonight ahead of the play-offs. Welsby (inset) and Dodd have been outstanding in his absence and Woolf said: “Lewis and Jack are a big part of why we are able to finish the back end of the year so strongly. “There were plenty of sessions last year where Jack and Lewis hadn’t quite cemented their places and we would do opposed sessions – they asked plenty of questions of the main team. “But it’s one thing knowing what a young player can do, it’s another him going out and doing it consistently under pressure. That has been the impressive thing with both of those young players.” Victory is Agar’s sole focus LEEDs v HULL KR 7.45pm in front of our own fans – no other ifs, buts or permutations. “We prepared to take care of things ourselves regardless of what happens elsewhere. “You can’t rely on other things going your way around you, it’s not the right thing to do. “Our mindset has been all about getting the win.” Lam shuffle WIGAN v CATALANS SALFORD v ST HELENS 7.45pm

MOLINARI’S PLEDGE FRANCESCO MOLINARI insists he won’t be jealous if Tommy Fleetwood ends up in bed with the Ryder Cup and another partner next weekend. But the Italian wants to get back with the Englishman in 2023 to rekindle their bromance. The ‘Moliwood’ pairing combined to win all four Paris matches together in 2018 as Europe romped to victory, and even spent the night together, along with the trophy, after a drunken celebration. The Italian became the first European ever to win all five of his matches in 2018 but will be watching Whistling Straits from his home after failing to qualify this year. The world No.167 said: “I wish them all the best and I hope to see Tommy and the rest of the team celebrating at the end – however they do it! Will I ■SLEEPING PARTNER: Molinari (right) with Fleetwood and the trophy ■■ by NEIL McLEMAN mind if he ends up in bed again? No! I’m hoping we get another chance sometime in the future. “So hopefully that’s not the end of our partnership.” Europe captain Padraig Harrington has the task of finding Fleetwood a new partner in Wisconsin. “Tommy has the advantage of being a kind of player with no weaknesses, so you can pair him up pretty much with anyone,” Molinari added. “Sometimes it’s a double-edged sword, because you end up filling the gaps when you’re like that. “Hopefully they think he’s a big enough player now to be at the start of the pecking order.” Molinari, 38, was the hottest player on the planet in 2018 as he won his first PGA Tour title and then the Open before his Ryder Cup heroics. But he has never been the same player since losing the final-round lead at the 2019 Masters. “It’s been difficult because it’s been a big jump backwards,” he said. “It’s been the toughest stretch in my career. But that’s golf, that’s life. Hopefully I can find a way to get out of it.”

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 43 WANTED: Cooper Forest in hunt for Cooper ■■ by james nursey NOTTINGHAM FOREST are set to open talks with Steve Cooper but caretaker Steven Reid is in line to take charge this weekend. Forest dismissed Chris Hughton yesterday after a dismal start to the season saw them register six defeats from seven games, leaving them at the foot of the Championship. Now Forest, and their new CEO Dane Murphy, are keen to recruit a younger coach such as former Swansea manager Cooper, 41, who has a reputation for developing young players. The Forest academy has category one status and Cooper helped England Under-17s lift the World Cup in 2017. He moved in 2019 to the Swans and guided them to the Championship play-offs in two successive campaigns before leaving earlier this summer. Cooper will face competition for the role from former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder. A club statement said: “Nottingham Forest can confirm that Chris Hughton has been relieved of his duties as first-team manager. “The club would like to place on record its appreciation for Chris’ efforts.” Hughton’s successor will be Forest’s 13th manager in 10 years. footie flashes ●●DERBY owner Mel Morris is close to agreeing to an EFL points deduction in a bid to speed up the sale of the club and avoid potential administration. ●●EMI MARTINEZ and Emi Buendia are on course to hand Aston Villa a huge boost, with the Argentinian duo flying in to return against Everton tomorrow. ●●COVENTRY owner Joy Seppala says the club is “firmly committed” to a new stadium.

To be fair, Barca’s chronic problems started long before Lionel Messi jetted out of Spain this summer and joined Paris St-Germain. But their all-time top scorer was part of the problem, too, because he cost Barca bosses wages the club couldn’t afford, while the team were too reliant on the genius of just one man. It was the same at Manchester United towards the end of Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign, when somehow the great Scot managed to lead a mediocre team to the Premier League title in his final season in charge. United won that crown in 2013 because of Fergie – and have spent the intervening years since his retirement proving just what price there is to pay for losing an icon. It has been the same at Arsenal following the departure of Arsene Wenger. The Gunners have become a shell of the club they once were under the leadership of the Frenchman. Now Barcelona, one of the truly iconic clubs in world football, are hurtling down the same road. Ronald Koeman’s side were humiliated 3-0 at the Nou Camp this week by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. It was the first time in history Barca had lost an opening game at home in Europe’s elite competition. Just a decade ago Barca were ripping Fergie’s United to pieces with a performance of footballing perfection to become European champions again at Wembley. But these days the Catalan outfit are flirting with financial disaster due to colossal debts and can only claim to be the fourth best side in their country, let alone the best one on the continent. Messi leaving will accelerate Barca’s grim trip into the wilderness, just like what happened at United when Fergie rode into the sunset. The likes of Manchester City and Liverpool should take note. Where do City go when Pep Guardiola decides he’s had enough of Manchester? The same goes for Liverpool when Klopp leaves Anfield, because the German’s shoes will be impossible ones to fill. At some stage there will come a time when both of them will be left looking at the future with panic and confusion. Football is too fickle to allow people to dine out on past glories for too long. Those who love the game should feel horrified at the plight of Barca – if it can happen to them, then it can happen to anyone. ■FARCE-ALONA: Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo feels the agony after this week’s home defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich and (below) Lionel Messi in action for PSG with Jeremy Cross @CrossyDailyStar Padraig’s risky play TIME will tell us if Padraig Harrington’s decision to leave Justin Rose out of his Ryder Cup team is brave or sheer buffoonery. The European captain has certainly stuck his neck out, ignoring the stature and experience of Rose in favour of Irishman Shane Lowry. A quick glance at the two teams shows that, on paper at least, the United States will head to Whistling Straits as favourites to reclaim the trophy. This wonderful event is capable of throwing up all manner of shocks and surprises, though. What we do know for certain is that in picking his big pal, Harrington has piled enormous pressure on Lowry’s first Ryder Cup when it all kicks off in Wisconsin next week. Rose has played well at Whistling Straits before, finishing fourth when the 2015 PGA Championship was held there. If European golf is strong enough to leave out that calibre of player, then Harrington’s men should be winning. Or he has dropped a huge clanger. Either way, it should be fun finding out the answer. bruce to stick it out at toon ■■ by SIMON BIRD see their team competing at their first four top flight STEVE Bruce insists he NEWCASTLE the top of the table like they games for the first time since won’t quit Newcastle even if did 20 years ago. 1958 and are just a point and fans’ chants against him v LEEDS “Unfortunately at this two places above Newcastle. get worse. moment we are not there.

He said: “The ability for him to surge away from people, his power, is a great trait to have. We’d like him to use it more. “He’s been getting a Moyes’ hope for goal hero bit of a ribbing for not scoring enough goals. “He could be a very good goalscoring midfielder and if he can score a few more, that would be great. “With Declan, he’s tried to take himself to the next level. He’s getting better. He captained West Ham for the first time in Europe away from home. “And he scores a goal that makes the game much more comfortable. “From that point of view we see a real development. He’s a young boy with a big future.” ANT ’N DEC DO IT ANT and Dec are not just a TV double act after all – they’re not bad for West Ham either! Michail Antonio fired the Hammers first goal in a major European competition, excluding qualifiers, in 22 years. And Declan Rice capped a dynamic captain’s performance with a brilliant solo goal to give West Ham a dream start to their Europa League adventure. Their namesakes may be best known for presenting Britain’s Got Talent but it was the Hammers dynamic duo proving there’s plenty at the London Stadium too. Antonio was labelled “stupid” by boss David Moyes for getting sent off in his side’s draw with Southampton. But he bounced back in the best way possible to score his fifth goal in as many games this season. And Rice made sure it was a perfect start to West Ham’s first ever Europa League group stage campaign with a sweet second-half strike. Moyes could not have asked for more – and it was all the more impressive because Dinamo Zagreb are no mugs. The Michail sets tone before Rice strikes ■■ from PAUL BROWN in Zagreb DINAMO ZAGREB 0 WEST HAM 2 Hammers knew what they were up against. Tottenham came unstuck here last season, crashing out of this competition after losing 3-0. Part of the Stadion Maksimir has been shut since then after an earthquake ripped through Zagreb. But it was rocking for a different reason when Antonio sent West Ham’s 2,000 travelling fans crazy by breaking the deadlock in the 21st minute. Kevin Theophile-Catherine played a terrible backpass that the Hammers striker intercepted before dancing around Dominik Livakovic for a simple finish. West Ham didn’t get far in their last two European campaigns, in 2015 and 2016, losing in qualifying to Romanian side Astra Giurgiu two years in a row. By contrast Dinamo are old hands at this, reaching the group stage seven times and losing in the quarterfinals to eventual winners Villarreal last year. But the visitors played with the swagger of a side used to winning, and Livakovic was tested again by a Ryan Fredericks shot. Six Hammers fans were arrested after a bar brawl the night before the game but it was Dinamo who were safely locked away last night – in their own half. And West Ham underlined their dominance when Rice picked off another bad ball and stormed forward to smash home between Livakovic’s legs. The England midfielder then wound up the locals by celebrating right in front of their Ultras. And that finally seemed to wake Dinamo up. Luka Ivanusec promptly wasting two chances. But West Ham’s new-look back four, with new signing Kurt Zouma starting alongside Issa Diop, held them at bay. Moyes even had the luxury of bringing off some of his big guns. West Ham’s key men are performing. Their new faces are gelling. And their confidence is high. Last season was no fluke. This one could be even better.

But on this kind of showing those are very dusty memories indeed. The Europa Conference League below a club of Tottenham’s size? Not with performances like this it isn’t. Nuno’s team were lucky to scramble away with a point last night after a torrid evening in Brittany. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s late strike saved the day in hojbjerg an unlikely saviour ■■ from tony banks in Rennes RENNES 2 TOTTENHAM 2 Tottenham’s opening Group G contest, in a game that went dangerously astray after Loic Bade’s early own goal gave them a lucky lead. The Portuguese coach, who saw his team’s good start to the season come to a shuddering halt with defeat at Crystal Palace at the weekend, had warned his players not to take this competition lightly. Instead, he had to watch another stuttering display. Nuno said: “It was not perfect. We started very well, finding good lines. “We scored, then we lost control. Rennes are a good team and they did cause us some problems. “But we finished well. We showed character and belief to change the result after we conceded. The attitude was good. This will make us stronger for the future.” Nuno selected a strong side last night, but injuries to Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura will now cause him further worries ahead of Sunday’s daunting clash with Chelsea. “It feels painful,” added the former Wolves boss. Spurs actually got off to exactly the start they would have wanted – thanks to a large slice of luck. Moura fired in a low cross after good work by Tanguy Ndombele and the ball took a wicked deflection off Bade to fly into the net. But the French side were

seriously football DS1ST EUROPA LEAGUE caught nap-ING Victor grounds flying Foxes Leicester were frustrated as they threw away a twogoal lead against in-form Italians Napoli. Victor Osimhen pegged them back with a late double after looking like he couldn’t hit a barn door for most of the match. But he hit the target when it mattered – and when it hurt – with a 69thminute shot and a headed equaliser two minutes from time. The Foxes looked to be cruising when the impressive Harvey Barnes drilled home a 64th-minute goal to double the early lead Ayoze Perez had handed them. But it all went wrong late on and that included a stoppage-time red card for Wilfred Ndidi for a second bookable offence. Brendan Rodgers’ decision to start without star names like Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans no doubt caused one or two raised eyebrows when the teamsheet dropped into the Italians’ dressing room. The Leicester boss’s selection could be considered brave or risky, whichever way you decided to view it, particularly against a Napoli side who have started the season in splendid fashion. They extended their 100 per cent record with a third win on the bounce at the weekend with a late clincher to topple Juventus. But Rodgers decided to take the bull by the horns and shake things up a bit and then watched his side go at the Italians from the off. It didn’t take long for their brisk start to pay dividends when Perez shot them into a ninth-minute lead. The Foxes had gone close just a couple of minutes earlier when Perez shot first time, only to see it ricochet off the legs of former Arsenal keeper David Ospina. But it was Barnes causing havoc again minutes later and this time Leicester made it count. Ryan Bertrand set them on their way with a neat interception just inside his own half, sending Barnes away down ■■ by dave armitage LEICESTER 2 NAPOLI 2 the left. He played a one-two with Patson Daka before clipping the ball superbly towards the far post, where Perez smashed a volley into the ground on its way past Ospina to give the Foxes the lead. Napoli came back at them desperately trying to get back on level terms and only had themselves to blame for not doing so. They wasted a number of reasonable chances with striker Osimhen the main culprit. Leicester looked to have delivered a real hammer blow on the hour only to see Daka’s well-taken effort ruled out by VAR for a marginal offside. But Barnes took it on himself to make up for that, cashing in on the far side of the box after Kelechi Iheanacho found him with a superb ball. Barnes made no mistake, taking the ball in his stride and setting his sights before drilling a shot into the far corner. That should have been enough but Napoli replied instantly, the erratic Osimhen finally getting reward for his endeavours when he shrugged aside Vestergaard a bit too easily and poked a dropping shot over Schmeichel – then grabbing a draw with a fine header two minutes from the end.

The German said: “To be 100 per cent honest, of course I thought he would maybe leave in the summer, but the football world is a crazy place and people obviously forgot how good he is. “I said it, it is really difficult to get into this team. “That’s just how it is and I have to decide about different positions, who I bring on, how I want to react before a game. “That’s why Div was not ■TOP EFFORT: Klopp embraces Origi as he leaves the pitch on Wednesday ETIBAD MOVE, PEP CHAMPIONS LEAGUE IS ■■ by Chris McKenna in, he did nothing wrong. He trains, he gives everything and sometimes you still don’t make it into the squad. “That really can happen, especially when everybody is fit. “But for this game he was the right player to do it and he did really well. “He was not injured, he had cramps, that’s normal, and so now let’s see. “It’s just nice, I’m really happy I could give him the opportunity and that he used it like he did.” Origi has scored some big goals for the Reds, including two in the dramatic comeback victory against Barcelona in the 2019 Champions League. The Belgian international then scored the second in the final that season as the Reds beat Tottenham to lift the trophy. Klopp added: “Divock is a great guy, that’s how it is, and in 10 years’ time, when we look back, he will be a Liverpool legend. “But he is too young to be already seen as a legend now, so he has to play football.” absolutely the best coach in the world but, in the nicest possible way, maybe he should stick to that. “People are talking more about Pep’s comments than a fantastic game. “I don’t think anybody anywhere within the club should be questioning the loyalty of the supporters. “It does also play into the hands of supporters from other teams. “People refer to the Etihad as the ‘Emptyhad’.

Next up is Neymar (right) and PSG barca left in a fine messi Read cr ss fire Page 43

DS1ST DAILY STAR, Friday, September 17, 2021 47 BACK WITH A BANG I watched videos of Neymar as a kid. Even then he was UNBELIEVABLE AFTER achieving one dream by scoring on his Champions League debut, Jack Grealish is ready to realise another by playing against his teen idol Neymar. Manchester City face Paris St-Germain next in the Champions League and Grealish cannot wait to face Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. Grealish, 26, watched videos of Neymar when he was a teenager coming through the ranks at Aston Villa and was dazzled by his skill. “It’s going to unbelievable going to PSG,” said the record £100m signing. “They’ve got some really talented players. Neymar is unbelievable. I used to watch videos of him, even going back to when he was a kid playing for Santos. “He’s had such a wonderful career, he’s nearly the top goalscorer for Brazil. It will be pleasure to share a pitch with him.” Although Grealish is almost in awe of PSG, who were held by Club Brugge in their opening group game, he believes City can go one better than last season’s final defeat to Chelsea. He says there is a determination among the City players to win the Champions League because of that disappointment. “Every team changes over the nine or 10 months of a season and at the moment it’s anyone’s competition,” he said. “You look at the result in the PSG-Brugge game and can see that anything can happen in this competition. “We’ll see come May who is in and about it. The players are always talking about last season’s final. They’re determined to go one better this year.” Grealish opened his Champions League account JACK CAN’T WAIT FOR DREAM DATE WITH BRAZILIAN ACE ■■ by David Anderson by scoring and assisting in the 6-3 win over RB Leipzig on Wednesday. He added: “We’ve got talented players here. Just look at the players that we brought off the bench – Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho. “I am just happy to be playing with these players and hopefully I can add a little bit more talent to help the team.” But the England forward admitted the squad were steeling themselves for the debrief from boss Pep Guardiola. “I don’t think the six goals wipes the three conceded and we will still talk about the three goals that we have conceded,” he said. “This season we have only conceded ■PERFECT FINISH: Grealish fires home his wonder strike against Leipzig one goal in the league. So to concede three was obviously disappointing and I am sure the manager will say that.” Meanwhile, Nathan Ake has revealed his father, Moise, died minutes after the City defender scored his first Champions League goal – the first of City’s six – on Wednesday. “The past few weeks have been the toughest of my life, my dad has been very ill and there was no more treatment possible,” he wrote on Instagram. “On Wednesday, after a difficult time, I scored my first Champions League goal, and only a few minutes after he passed away peacefully with my mum and brother by his side. “Maybe it was meant to be, watching me play always made him proud and happy.” ABSENT: Calvert-Lewin Benitez missing Dominic ■■ by adam lanigan EVERTON’S Dominic Calvert-Lewin is set to miss their next four matches as he recovers from a broken toe and a thigh injury. The problems caused the striker to miss the Toffees’ 3-1 home win over Burnley on Monday. Calvert-Lewin has scored in each of his three league games this season but he will not feature at Aston Villa tomorrow nor in forthcoming league games with Norwich and Manchester United and a Carabao Cup tie at QPR. He is also doubtful for England’s World Cup qualifiers with Andorra and Hungary next month. “We still have to wait some weeks, we don’t know exactly how many,” said manager Rafa Benitez. “He will not be available for two or three weeks.” Benitez will also decide after training today whether to include James Rodriguez in the squad for the trip to Villa Park. The Colombian has not featured yet for the new Toffees boss as he tries to build up to full fitness. Benitez said: “We will see tomorrow in another session and decide how he is doing.” Dyche is dealt in ■■ by DAVID ANDERSON SEAN Dyche hopes his decision to sign a new four-year deal at Burnley will help persuade his players to commit their futures to the Clarets. The Premier League’s longest-serving boss has signed on until 2025 at Turf Moor and wants the club to tie down the 10 players who are out of contract next summer. Skipper Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Ashley Barnes and Jack Cork are among those who could leave for nothing and Dyche says he raised this with the board during negotiations. “We certainly spoke of it during the period where mine was getting sorted,” said Dyche, who has been at Turf Moor since 2012. “I think it’s helpful that I’ve re-signed because obviously it gives clarity to the players, to their agents and the club.”
