Must-win games evoke Liverpool memories of Houllier’s cup treble | Andy Hunter
Just like this year, in 2001 the Anfield side needed to win three games in the last week of the season to secure their targetA late surge, no margin for error, and three games in the final eight days to shape an entire campaign. For Liverpool 2021, read Liverpool 2001; although the stakes and rewards were considerably higher for Gérard Houllier two decades ago than they are Jürgen Klopp as he attempts to preserve the club’s place in the Champions League.“What we see at Liverpool now is partly down to Gérard,” says Dietmar Hamann, the former Liverpool and Germany midfielder. “The club was at a crossroads in the late 90s. Another two or three seasons of mediocrity and Liverpool could have been just another club. I think what’s happened at Liverpool over the last five years wouldn’t have been possible if Gerard didn’t put Liverpool back on the map 20 years ago.” Cardiff and Dortmund were the exact starting locations.

Fatigue, flares and fine details threaten Manchester United’s march
Last season Solskjær’s side faced a defining game at Leicester and won. Are they in shape to repeat the trick against Villarreal?An enormous police presence. Dogs. Drones. A helicopter. A 10ft wall. Crash barriers. Subterfuge. It has taken an awful lot for the Premier League and their partners to get matches played since last June but Thursday night at Old Trafford for the classic of the English football calendar – Manchester United versus Liverpool – took matters to a whole new level.The details in the intro are the eye-popping ones, the response to the fear that a group of United supporters – incandescent at the Glazer family and the owners’ drive to join the failed European Super League – might try to force a second postponement, the original fixture on the Sunday before last having had to be bumped after protesters stormed the stadium.

‘Tirana boom today’: Guardian readers on the cleverest and funniest headlines | Letters
Readers respond to an article about the art of headline-writing with examples of their own favouritesRe your article celebrating the art of headline-writing (Making a splash: the best – and funniest – Guardian headlines over 200 years, 13 May), my grandfather, John Putz, was night editor of the Guardian in the 1960s. John Cole, the news editor in 1964, told this anecdote at his funeral. During the night of 15 October 1964, the subeditors were huddled anxiously over a draft of the next day’s front page. News came in from the Soviet Union that Nikita Khrushchev had been ousted on 14 October, and the Moscow correspondent had been guaranteed a front-page headline for any major story. On 15 October, Harold Wilson ousted Alec Douglas-Home as prime minister. How to resolve the front-page conundrum? Everyone stood scratching their heads. From the shadows came my grandfather’s voice: “How about ‘Khrushchev out: Mr Wilson in?’” – and the presses rolled. Catherine Putz Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire• Surely “Sir Vivian Fuchs For Antarctic” (6 December 1963) deserves an honourable mention? Iain Hurwood Steeple Bumpstead, Suffolk Continue reading...

Martin Bashir Quits The BBC Amid Investigation Into Princess Diana Interview
Martin Bashir has quit the BBC on health grounds amid an investigation into his Panorama interview with Princess Diana.The veteran journalist, who was the BBC News religion editor, has been seriously unwell with complications related to Covid-19 since last year.Jonathan Munro, the BBC’s deputy director of news, said in a message to staff: “Martin Bashir has stepped down from his position as the BBC’s religion editor, and is leaving the Corporation.“He let us know of his decision last month, just before being readmitted to hospital for another surgical procedure on his heart.”Munro’s message ended: “Although he underwent major surgery toward the end of last year, he is facing some ongoing issues and has decided to focus on his health.“We wish him a complete and speedy recovery.”Bashir began working as a journalist in 1986 and made headlines around the world in 1995 for his interview with Diana for Panorama.Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has alleged Mr Bashir showed him fake financial documents and told untrue stories about the Royal Family to gain access to his late sister.The BBC has appointed Lord Dyson, a retired judge and former master of the rolls, to lead an investigation to discover what steps the BBC and Mr Bashir took to land the interview.Former BBC director-general Lord Hall led a 1996 internal BBC investigation into the circumstances surrounding Diana’s appearance, which sent shockwaves through the royal family with her revelations about the state of her marriage.The BBC has previously said in a statement that during an internal corporation investigation in 1996, Mr Bashir admitted commissioning mocked-up bank documents.They had been shown to Earl Spencer, but he said they had played no part in securing the princess’s appearance on Panorama.In March, Scotland Yard said it would not launch a criminal investigation into the interview after a former employee of Earl Spencer made a formal complaint to the force.A legal representative of Alan Waller, who used to work for Diana’s brother Earl Spencer as head of security, had written to the Met alleging unlawful activity.READ MORE:Princess Diana’s Bombshell 1995 Interview Is Under Investigation.
