Twenty in a row! This carry-on is beyond outrageous, but City’s amazing run can be partially explained by Pep Guardiola’s mindset, and his ability to compartmentalise, taking things one careful step at a time. “The challenge is not to win 20 or 21, the challenge is to beat West Ham. This is the only challenge that we have. The results are a consequence of what we do day by day. When you win you are a genius and when you lose you are a disaster. I don’t listen much.”City have done much of this without the injured Kevin De Bruyne, who could return to the starting XI this weekend. “He’s fully fit.” Three small words from Pep that will send a shiver down the division and up David Moyes’ spine. The Hammers have lost on their last four visits to the Etihad, and have been on the wrong end of some City spankings in the last few years: two 5-0s, a couple of 4-0s, and a 4-1. But they did grind out a draw at the London Stadium back in October, and they’re fourth in the league right now, deservedly so. City are strong favourites, of course they are, but all hope is not lost. Continue reading...

Only Fools And Horses Star Reveals The Comeback That Nearly Was But Never Happened
Only Fools and Horses fans were nearly granted a revival to celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary, one of its stars has revealed.John Challis, who played Boycie in the hit BBC sitcom, said that writer John Sullivan was working on a comeback episode but died before completing the script. The episode would have seen Del Boy celebrate his retirement in the Nag’s Head.Speaking to The Sun, Challis said: “The 30th anniversary was coming up and John was in the process of getting together a Christmas special or something.“It was going to be Del Boy’s 65th birthday, he was going to retire and there was going to be a bit of a get-together in the Nag’s Head. But unfortunately he (John) got ill and didn’t come out of it.”Sullivan died after contracting viral pneumonia in April 2011, five months before the 30th anniversary of Only Fools And Horses’ debut. Recalling his death, Challis said: “It was a complete shock to everybody. We got a phone call from the producers giving us the bad news.”Sullivan wrote all 64 episodes of Only Fools And Horses, which ran between 1981 and 2003. Over 19 million people tuned in to see its final episode on Christmas Day in 2003. Sir David Jason, who played Del Boy in the show, recently admitted he had watched an old episode of Only Fools And Horses during lockdown, and was left in fits of giggles at the iconic moment when his character fell through a wine bar hatch. He told The Mirror: “It gave me great joy. The hatch scene still makes me laugh out loud. Normally I’m very critical of what I do, I don’t enjoy watching very much. But that one just works.”READ MORE:Why Only Fools And Horses Bosses Had To Keep One Of Its Most Iconic Episodes Secret From The BBCSir David Jason Nearly Played A Very Different Character In Only Fools And Horses

Anas Sarwar Wins Scottish Labour Leadership Contest
Anas Sarwar has won the race to be Scottish Labour’s next leader. The Glasgow MSP beat health spokesperson Monica Lennon, with 57.6% of the vote to 42.4%, the party announced on Saturday. Sarwar strongly opposed Scottish independence during the contest and has taken the helm ahead of Holyrood elections on May 6 crucial for the party. While Scottish Labour trail in the polls, he will be hopeful of clawing back support amid the explosive row between SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon and her predecessor Alex Salmond. The former first minister said on Friday, in his evidence to the Holyrood committee investigating the Scottish Government’s handling of sex harassment complaints against him, that Sturgeon’s leadership had “failed” and the government was not fit to take the country to independence. Despite the high-profile row, the SNP are still predicted to make gains at the next election and will put a second referendum at the heart of their pitch to voters. The latest poll, by Ipsos Mori, predicts that the SNP will win 72 of the 129 seats in Holyrood, nine more than now and giving the party a majority of 15.The poll also said the Tories are expected to fall to 26 seats, while Scottish Labour dropped to 17. The Greens and Lib Dems were also forecast to make gains. This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
