It’s never too early but it can be too late to make a Will In today’s economic climate there has never been a more crucial time to put your affairs in order. Research reveals more than 27 million people in England and Wales do not have a Will and those who need one are least likely to have one. Writing a Will does not just dictate where and to whom your assets will go – but can also help protect your home should you need Long Term Care. It is suggested that 1 in six men and 1 in three women will need Long Term Care at some point in their lives. Without the right protection they could be putting their homes at risk to pay their fees. When asked most people say they simply haven’t got around to making a Will, never thought about it or don’t want to think about dying. Dying without a will can leave your family vulnerable at the most emotional time of their lives. It can create family feuds and leave relatives without their inheritance. Don’t leave it until it is too late...........

Weekly Wit With... ALBERT SNODGRASS

Mother Superior was on her way to late morning prayers when she passed two novices just leaving early morning prayers on their way to classes. As she passed the young ladies, Mother Superior said, “Good morning ladies.” The novices replied, “Good morning, Mother Superior, may God be with you.” But after they had passed, Mother Superior heard one say to the other, “I think she got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.” This startled Mother Superior, but she chose not to pursue the issue. A little further down the hall, Mother Superior passed two of the sisters who had been teaching at the convent for several years. She greeted them with “Good morning Sister Martha, Sister Jessica, may God give you the wisdom for our students today.” “Good morning, Mother Superior. Thank you and may God be with you.” But again after passing, Mother Superior overheard, “She got up on the wrong side of the bed today.” Baffled, she started to wonder if she had spoken harshly or with an irritated look on her face. She vowed to be more pleasant. Looking down the hall, Mother Superior saw retired Sister Mary approaching, step by step, with her walker. As Sister Mary was Rather deaf, Mother Superior had plenty of time to arrange a pleasant smile on her face before greeting Sister Mary. “Good morning, Sister Mary, I’m so happy to see you up and about. I pray God watches over you today, and grants you a wonderful day.” “Ah, good morning, Mother Superior. I see you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.” Mother Superior was floored! “Sister Mary, what have I done wrong?” I have tried to be pleasant but three times already today people have said that about me.” Sister Mary stopped her walker and looked Mother Superior in the face. “Oh, don’t take it personally, Mother Superior. It’s just that you’re wearing Father Murphy’s slippers.”

This week sees the release of Dragon Age 2, and I haven’t been this let down since I went all the way to Bangkok to discover that the Golden Mount was in fact a temple! The original Dragon Age was Bioware’s best ever selling title. An epic fantasy adventure, there was intrigue and action and emotional decisions to make at every turn, and we expected the same from the sequel… although you can consign those high hopes to the spam filter, for Dragon Age 2 feels more like an hastily thrown together expansion than a full-fledged game in its own right. The main evidence of this is in the game’s meagre list of locations. Most of the action takes place in the city of Kirkwall, and, like the city, the dungeons and cave systems you’ll explore are almost identical, which gets irritating on your fiftieth trek through yet another carbon copy dungeon. Locations are repeated throughout the game and you will have seen everything there is to see in the first few hours of play. It’s this lack of, well, just about everything that is such a letdown in Dragon Age 2. If the lack of original locations weren’t bad enough, the game has been dumbed down to the point where an amoeba could play it. Everything’s been changed to make it more “accessible”, resulting in the stripping away of that fine layer of immersion that made the first game so appealing. The game’s been dumbed down to a level that I can see Dragon Age 3 appearing on the pocket calculator in 2012! The core game itself is a bit of a mess. There are way too many irrelevant quests and far too much time is spent running around trying to complete missions that have nothing to do with the core story (many of which still need to be completed in order to advance the main plot). That said, with all the politics and bickering, the main story feels more like a magical version of Eastenders than the epic high fantasy adventure it should be. Score: 7/10. Developer, Bioware, has crafted some interesting characters and amusing dialogue, but it’s so spaced out as to make the few genuinely compelling scenes a chore to wade through. There is a decent game here, and if you love your role playing games then there’s a lot to like, but with so little content and so few gripping scenes, this is little more than a shadow of the original game.

ICE PRESENTS A DISNEY ADVENTURE LAND

Disney On Ice is back in Sheffield from 25th – 27th March 2011 with an incredible actionpacked show for all the family! In an original story, Disney On Ice presents a Disneyland Adventure invites audiences to relive their fondest Disneyland memories, as they join favourite characters and classic villains on a colorful and exciting vacation to the theme park. Tickets priced £13, £17, £18, £21, £30 & £35 (may be subject to a booking fee are available in person at the venue, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or online at www.motorpointarena.co.uk. Produced by Feld Entertainment, this adventure features an array of favorite Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Baloo, Disney Princesses Snow White and Cinderella, Stitch, Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles and Buzz Lightyear. In this spectacular production, the “Fabs”—Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto - decide to take a vacation of their own and enjoy Disney’s most popular theme park attractions. In one funfilled scene after another, Donald and Goofy attempt to join in the fun, resulting in a series of comical mishaps. But it’s no laughing matter when the evil fairy Maleficent shows up to spoil the fun, and Mickey must enlist The Incredibles to help save the day! “Disney On Ice presents a Disneyland Adventure will remind audiences of all the fun and unimaginable possibilities that Disneyland offers while capturing the escapades of Mickey and his friends,” says Producer Kenneth Feld. “Children and adults alike will find this ice adventure both familiar and unexpected at the same time.” Whether Mickey and Minnie are meeting beloved Disney characters such as Alice and the Mad Hatter, Stitch, and Buzz Lightyear or experiencing popular attractions like Space Mountain® and “it’s a small world,” every element of the show, from the dazzling skating to the amazing lighting and vibrant costumes, was designed to capture the fun, nostalgic atmosphere of Disneyland in the early 1960s. Tasked with ensuring the show’s authenticity, each member of the creative team approached the challenge with a unique perspective. Disney On Ice presents a Disneyland Adventure brings together the talents of an acclaimed creative team and an international ensemble of world-class skaters to tell an original story that will allow audiences to relive their favorite Disneyland memories right in their hometowns. Tickets priced £13, £17, £18, £21, £30 & £35 (may be subject to a booking fee) are available in person at the venue, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or online at www.motorpointarena.co.uk.

Weekly Psychic Article by Psychic Glynis

What do the symbols mean? Psychological theories regarding dreams can be divided into two groups. The first school of thought views dreams simply as the brain processing and dumping unwanted material, rather like when a computer discards unwanted data before shutting down. The second school of thought maintains that the correct interpretation of dreams will give a valuable insight into the unconscious mind. Everyone dreams for 2 hrs per night. Dream interpretation involves symbols which have become personal to the dreamer.

Heaven Dreaming of heaven means that you need to sort out your spirituality. There are negative aspects around you that need resolving. Virgin Mary This indicates a sense of detachment from your loved one. You are striving for love and security Angels and Beings of Light Archangel Michael slayed a dragon and Satan.

Rough water suggests bad times are ahead. Crawling through an endless narrow tunnel is a common Dreams are a reflection of life. Your dreams connect with claustrophobic anxiety dream. It suggests that you have your true nature and are very personal to you. So good taken on a task that is too big for you. You feel as though the breath is being squeezed out of you. You are most likely dreaming and I hope you dream up the six lottery numbers! a person who rarely shares your thoughts with anyone. Talk Next week: Who Named the Zodiac Signs? about it to someone. Any bookings for readings or information please txt Good Luck Charms 07811632353 or email psychicglynis@talktalk.net Good luck charms appear to encourages confidence. The charm may be a personal talisman like a precious stone, a number, or an ancient and widely known symbol of good luck. A few examples are an olive branch, a four leaf clover, a white dove or a black cat. Relationship Symbols Unsuitable Partner If you dream of an inappropriate pairing of two items, for example a motorbike and bath tub, you should reflect on your relationship. This usually means that you are totally unsuited to your partner. Family Quarrels Dreaming of a spat with your parents may symbolise doubts about your religious faith. Children storming out of the house may represent loss of parental ambitions. Mending Things If a real life problem needs to be resolved it is symbolized in the dream by a need to physically repair an item.

Sheffield 50+ - The Voice of Older People Heard Nationally The Census on Switchover Help Scheme 27 March

Help is at A census is a count of the population. We have had one in the UK every ten hand with years to find out more about who we the digital TV are as a nation. Find out who runs it at http://2011.census.gov.uk/Mycensus/What-is-the-census. switchover Digital UK http://www.sheffield.gov.uk/whats-new/ census

It’s importance to You and Sheffield Census population statistics are really important in understanding people’s needs and making sure all communities get the services they need where they live. It’s simple. If the census can’t see you, the organisations responsible for delivering the services you need won’t be able to see you either. In discovering and understanding communities, the census could make a very real difference to people’s lives. The census needs to include everyone, everywhere – and that’s why everyone has to take part. Money for Sheffield The census is critical for Sheffield, because it will be used to determine government grants. Sheffield will lose £5,000 over 10 years for every person not listed on the form. Its results affect decisions about education, transport, businesses, healthcare and housing amongst others, other reasons why it’s important to you see http://2011.census.gov.uk/Mycensus/What-s-in-it-for-me. The Questionnaire Your questionnaire will come through the post, it’ll include a personal internet access code so you can fill it in online at http://2011.census.gov.uk/ Complete-your-census-online . • It will only take 20 minutes to complete • All information is confidential. It will not be shared • There’s online help, a multi-lingual telephone helpline and its available in accessible formats see http://2011. census.gov.uk/The-accessible-census • It’s against the law not to fill in the form Family History For thousands of genealogists and amateur family historians, the census is helping to re-trace family connections through the ages. The personal information shared at every census is kept confidential for 100 years. After that, it’s there for the public to explore and find out more about the life and times of their ancestors. • The 2011 Census is bringing professional and family historians together.

TV is going digital all over the UK and soon the traditional TV signal will be switched off in your area. If you don’t have digital TV by the time of switchover, you will lose your TV service. But you don’t need to worry, the Help Scheme is here to help. What does the Help Scheme do? We help eligible people convert one of their TV sets to digital. If you’re eligible, we’ll explain digital TV to you clearly and simply. We will tell you about all the options available to you. We can install what you need in your home. And we will make sure you are happy with how it all works. How do I know if I have digital TV? If you get more than five channels on one of your TVs, you probably already have digital TV. However, even if you already have digital TV on your main set, we can still convert another TV in your home, for example in your bedroom or kitchen. We’ll make it easy for you to go digital and you won’t even have to change your TV set. Am I eligible? We can help everyone who: • Is aged 75 or over, or • Has lived in a care home for six months or more, or • Gets (or could get) – Disability living allowance, or – Attendance or constant attendance allowance, or – Mobility supplement, or • Is registered blind or partially sighted. Questions? Call 0800 40 85 900 or visit helpscheme.co.uk Will I have to pay? We’ll ask you to pay £40 for the standard offer, which includes: • Easy-to-use equipment that meets your needs. • Help with installing the equipment, if you wish. • An aerial check and replacement if needed, where we can. • A demonstration and someone you can call for help while you’re getting used to things. This service is free if you get pension credit, income support, income-related employment and support allowance or income-based jobseeker’s allowance.

There are other options available at an extra cost, which we can explain to you. You must have a valid TV licence (free if you are over 75) to get help. Know someone else who needs a helping hand? You may have friends or family or someone in your local community who will need help with the switchover. If so, please pass this information on to them.

Riding high with a new management deal, a brand new CD that was launched in November and a new DVD due out in May, Frank is back on top after well publicised health issues.

Paul Jones played a track from that CD on his famed BBC Radio 2 blues show recently, and praised the album, Frank’s voice and guitar prowess. Adding that it was great to welcome Frank back to national radio after a 16 year interval between album releases. “Very good it is too. Frank is sounding in great I don’t travel very far nowadays to watch acts, I tend to wait until they come to my local clubs in Handsworth. My travels on Saturday took me to Sheffield Trades & Labour for the first time in quite a while This week I went to see a boy duo by the name of “The Truth”, two lads who played to a packed – in fact on my last visit I was entertaining on stage. What lovely people they are – Pam, Dougie, Social Club and put on a top class show. Very smart appearance, choice of songs to suit everyone, and two Pete and Sue made me feel very welcome. They also told me they have never had a write-up in the very good voices, one slightly falsetto at times, which Mercury before, so here you are guys! complemented each other. Both lads put in the effort On stage were a great boy-girl duo by the name of to make the act look and sound very good, nobody Cameo, who I’ve not seen before. They very quickly wanted the night to end! Magic! Why these two have got a crowd on the dance floor, which I was told was never been discovered by the likes of Simon Cowell unusual for the club. My only complaint – I didn’t and co, telly appearances etc. I and a few others will win the bingo! Thanks for a great night out, Trades, hope to see you never know. A top act, not to be missed. again soon Paul (Rocky Horrors)

CLUBHISTORIANS.CO.UK by Ruth Cherrington

Every week brings another closure. Behind each one there is a story not only of a club but of a community. I want to focus on two here, the first one being Scraptoft Valley Working Men’s Club, Leicester The ‘Scrappy Valley’ as it was known locally, one of Leicester’s biggest clubs, closed its door for the final time on February 28th. At one time the club had well over 2,000 members on its books but numbers dwindled over the past 10 years with fewer coming in. The recession and smoking ban didn’t help the cause to keep it open. The club attempted to keep going with entertainment and events for the children such as a Halloween party and charitable activities. It boasted a 400 seater concert room and a 100 seater lounge. In the games room there were pool tables, darts, table skittles and chess available. The club started life in 1959 in a wooden shack was then called the Humberstone Social Club. By 1964, it had moved to the new Netherall estate and into purpose built club premises on Grantham Road. It soon went on to become one of the major clubs in the Midland, with reputedly one of the largest stages (though there are many claims to that across clubland!). It attracted some big name entertainers such as Bernard Manning, local Leicester lad Engelbert Humperdinck, the Krankies and many others. In 1997, it won the prestigious ‘Best in Country Award and was described by judges as a ‘vital lifeline to the community it serves.’ Who will take on that role now it’s gone? The lifeline has been pulled for so many communities up and down the country. The club had a number of renovation programmes underway to adapt it fully to 21st challenges and it had a website to advertise its entertainment programme. But these efforts were in vain : the club is no more. Over in Coventry, Stoke Ex -Servicemen’s Club shut down on Jan. 14th 2011, leaving debts of a quarter of a million pounds. The Club held a crisis meeting on the Sunday morning and ceased trading at 6pm that evening. The club building in Clay Lane, Stoke, has been sold to help pay debs off. Papers were signed to sell the building last October and receivers went in soon after trading ceased. In its heyday, the club was one of the busiest working men clubs in the city. Recent years had seen it fall on hard times as the number of members using the club dwindleda familiar story. Club president Dave Gemmell said: ‘We just can’t carry on trading any longer. The income just isn’t enough to keep it going. We have some 1,000 members but we barely have 100 of them who use the club. Why these people join a club and don’t use the facilities, God knows.’ If more members used the club, as elsewhere, this closure may not have happened. So, to all of you with club membership wherever you are, please ‘use it or lose it!”

MAGIC AM by Trevor Thomas

It’s been another busy week for me this week, but it’s sure to finish in fine style this weekend and I hope you can come and join me for a big night of legendary 60s music. On Friday I’ll be introducing on stage at Building 21, Elsecar Heritage Centre near Barnsley, Herman’s Hermits, The Move with original member Bev Bevan and The Animals. From “I’m into something good” to “Flowers in the rain”, and “Fire Brigade” to “House of the rising sun”, the night will be packed with stacks of classic songs and well done to our lucky winners who won places through our Magic VIP Listener Club the other day. If you would still like to come along though, tickets are available from the venue. We may even have one or two surprise giveaways on the night as well. Just see our website at magicam.co.uk. Good luck as well to Emma and her team from Sheffield Hallam University who are attempting a unique world record in Sheffield on Saturday too. She’s attempting to stage the biggest single event ever featuring people dancing with their umbrellas in unison. Come rain or shine, why not pop down to Endcliffe Park on Saturday lunchtime, see what it’s all about and may be even take part. As long as you’ve got wellies and a brolly, for a donation of £3 towards Bernardo’s and Sheffield Mencap you could go in the record books. I might even see you there myself. Incidentally, don’t forget if you’ve got an event coming up to let us know and we’ll tell the whole of South Yorkshire. Now where did I put that mac? Trevor

VOICE OF THE NIGHTINGALE RADIO NIGHTINGALE by Mel Jacques

This week we recorded Strings in Springtime, a charity concert in aid of Rotherham Holiday Aid. A selection of the string ensembles from Rotherham Schools Music Service performed a varied programme to a packed house at the concert hall at the Music Service Centre in Thurcroft. The Intermediate Strings, Rotherham String Quartet, Guitar Group, Electric Cello Group and Sinfonia Strings were the groups performing to raise money for this local charity. There were solos from Elliot Bailey on cello and Aiden Stephenson on Violin too. The event was a great success and raised around £700 for Rotherham Holiday Aid. This small local charity raises funds throughout the year to provide holidays to disadvantaged families from Rotherham. Most breaks are self-catering in a caravan park or holiday centre in the UK. More than 1500 families have been helped in this way since RHA began its work. Although often this is still because of unemployment, other families are supported where they are suffering the trauma of long-term illness, disability, bereavement or the breakdown of a relationship. Most people who are helped have never had the chance to spend time together away from the pressures of everyday life. The need for this support has not diminished over the years and in current circumstances shows every sign of increasing. The recorded concert will be broadcast to the patients of the Rotherham Hospital on Friday 18 March at 8pm. Radio Nightingale broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the patients and staff of the Rotherham General Hospital on 945 &1350mw and Hospedia.

LIVE REVIEW by KT Evans Does it Offend You? Yeah Leadmill - 09/03/11

LIVE REVIEW by KT Evans Red Jump Suit Apparatus Corporation - 11/03/11

Ejecting a culmination of dance punk/new rave vibes onto the current UK scene, Does It Offend You Yeah are front runners in all things experimental. With heavy praise from the likes of NME and Rolling Stones Magazine, Mercury felt it only necessary to have a quick chat with lead singer James Rushent prior to the bands performance on Wednesday 9th March at Sheffield’s Leadmill. ‘Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You,’ the five-piece’s second studio album has allowed the band to delve into a catalogue of vintage music to tailor-make the sound they strive for. Having being released only last Monday, James explains ‘(the album) has moved forward rather than backwards. We’re all like three years older, toured all over the world and worked with other bands. Some of its not so plinky plonky.’ If the first album, ‘You Have No idea what You’re Getting Yourself Into’ released in 2008 is anything to go by however, the band have pretty much got it in the bag. Peaking within the top fifty UK album chart aswell as support from Itunes USA, the genreless tracks not only opened up the band’s fan base but also a whole new era of ‘try-it-and-see’ music. ‘We’re in this weird limbo place where we don’t know what’s gonna happen…it might come out and nobody likes it!’ With heavy reliance upon artists from the eighties, rather than modern-day groups, James explains how the album’s sound has been influenced. ‘We didn’t listen to any new music whilst we were writing it. We got into really old music, you know, like Bowie and Yes. I guess it’s just about drawing inspiration from the song writing side and the experimental side of things.’ And experimental is certainly the case; the bands repertoire of remixes range from Muse to Bloc Party to 50 Cent. ‘(Matt Belamy) is a really nice guy, we’ve done a couple of remixes with them, a few DJ shows for their after parties and that!’ Ridiculously cool? Now they’re just bragging! Now for most of us, March and April are those annoying months before long awaited summer arrives, however for Does It Offend You Yeah this period sees them tour not only the UK but internationally aswell. ‘We’re doing smaller venues this time round because every pre-album tour you can sort of like scale down a bit because you’ve been away for so long. It’s cool it’s good to be back on tour!’ And any festival appearances this year lined up? ‘Festival wise we haven’t got anything booked at the minute.’ Watch this space. The band second studio album ‘Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You’ is now available for purchase. For more details, visit the bands website www. doesitoffendyou.com

With, lets be fair, one hell of a line-up, Friday 11th March saw not only local, regional and national bands grace the main stage at Sheffield’s Corporation, but international groups from across the pond aswell. Support, coming in the form of local lads Rookie League, an experimental pop punk five piece effectively set the tone for the night, flinging us straight into the very pit of screamo vs. thrash galore. Birmingham’s LYU preceded Sheffield’s attempt at creating carnage with their guitar-fuelled, melodic rock performance, effectively achieving what a successful support band should do; getting the crowd riled for the main event. Having built up a pretty big name for themselves over the past few years, it was evident through Scotland’s Yashin set that these post-hardcore punks not only know how to put on a cracking show, but also have the musical ability to really make an impact with the big guns. Opening with ‘Friends In High Places,’ an adrenaline led track from their debut album ‘Put Your Hands Where I Can See Them,’ from the word ‘go’ energy levels were rocketed. An electric light show reflected the bands onstage performance, seeing front man Harry Radford generally not really pause for breath throughout the half hour set. Blinders ‘Let It Go’, ‘Remember Me’ and ‘Mr Hyde’ followed which, instrumentally very tight and together, showcased the bands ability to hold and maintain the audience’s attention throughout. Declaring ‘This is our favourite tour we’ve ever had,’ the climax of the night came towards the latter half of Yashin’s set, when lead guitarist Paul Travers opened ‘Stand Up’, a down-tempo, emotive number which even instigated swaying. We kid you not! Closing with ‘Get Loose,’ arguably one of the more accomplished-sounding tracks of the bands repertoire, everyone was well and truly hyped-up for the headlining act of the night. And they sure didn’t fail to deliver. Although originating from the Sunshine State, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’s performance was anything by sunny. Bursting their way onto the stage with ‘In Fates Hands’ the crowd were once again catapulted into the dark world of the infamous five piece. First-class tune ‘Damn Regret’ followed, seeing the audience sing back the chorus to front man Ronnie Winter, establishing a personal connection from the very start. ‘Choke’ and ‘Cat and Mouse’ were belted out next, which saw Yashin’s Harry Radford take to the stage to join in with the chorus…modern day punk rockers chorus line? Hmm. With tunes from the band’s debut album ‘Don’t You Fake It’ from 2007 arguably receiving the best audience reaction, crowd pleaser ‘Guardian Angel’ slowed down the explosive pace by a single spot light sparsely projected onto the stage, instigating a massive response. Finally toying with the audience at the end of the set, with a request form the crowd ‘False Pretense’ followed, emphasising Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are total masters of their craft. And everyone’s favourite? A huge hit for the band back in the mid noughties, ‘Face Down’ demonstrated pure musical talent and evident passion for music. With the audience carrying the melody as well as raucous amounts of cheering it’s safe to say, pretty much everyone had a cracking night.

RELEASES

artist: The Crookes album: Chasing After Ghosts Released: Monday 21st March

Whilst talking to admirers of The Crookes the inevitable comparison with Morrissey took centre stage in the conversation. However, as well as The Smiths; The Housemartins, The Clash (the mellower songs I presume, Lost In The Supermarket maybe?), Razorlight and The Everly Brothers have all been touted as similar sounds. It’s true, The Crookes sound so familiar in so many ways but yet they feel fresh enough to enjoy the sensation of a totally new band. The songs create scenes as well as sounds and as a northerner, I feel like I can relate to these songs more than someone from Buckinghamshire. From the wonderfully catchy and contemporary Godless Girl to the simple, beautiful yearning Youth, Chasing After Ghosts provides every sort of flavour that debut albums often fail to produce. Although I’m sure this album will produce successful singles, it really should be listened to as a single piece of music, just how albums used

to be. Here we have, I’m happy to announce, another band Sheffield can be rightly proud of. Stand out track: Just Like Dreamers Uses George Waites’ mesmerising vocals and catchy Rickenbackerish riffs to create a warm and fluffy feeling straight from 1987. Rating: 8/10 Bunsen Bob The Crookes will be playing at our very own Queens Social Club on Saturday 16th April. See www.theharley.co.uk or www.thecrookes. co.uk for more details

THE STRANGLERS

Being the only band out of the ‘Four Kings’ of the punk rock movement with a continuing successful recording career, The Strangers have certainly maintained their ability to captivate an audience. Due to the demand of their sell out tour last February and a busy major festival season, the band return to the UK with the Black and Blue Tour throughout March 2011, calling in at the O2 Academy Sheffield on Friday March 25th. After a summer that has seen the band play the main stages of the UK’s top festivals (T in The Park, Oxegen and Glastonbury) the band are now busy working on a new album. On the upcoming tour they hope to road test a couple of the new tunes, along with a combination of classics from a 16 album career. These include the unforgettable ‘Peaches’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘5 Minutes’, ‘Duchess’, ‘Something Better Change’, ‘Always the Sun’, ‘Walk on By’, plus their ultimate classic ‘Golden Brown’. With top 40 hits spanning 34 years and through 4 decades, the band has also charted 24 top 40 singles with cumulative worldwide sales of over 16 million. They continue to deliver an impressive and enrapturing live show, selling out across the UK. Expect memorable classics delivered with that trade mark Stranglers sound that hits you hard time after time until you’re black and blue. Here at The Mercury we have been given two pairs of tickets to give away to lucky readers. Simply answer the following question and get your answer to us at either info@ mercurynewspaper.co.uk or by post to Mercury Newspaper 4b Queens Road, Sheffield S2 4DG before Tuesday 22nd March.

7 Day Soapwatch EASTENDERS MON: Darren is forced into a life-changing decision when Jodieʼs attempt at babysitting George goes horribly wrong. Lauren becomes increasingly frantic when her search for Whitney proves to be fruitless, while Ricky is furious when he discovers that Janine has been keeping him in the dark. Abi and Jay go on their first official date. TUES: Darren continues to struggle with life as a single father, while Max makes a startling discovery about Abi. Kat reluctantly agrees to Alfieʼs suggestion of IVF - but is it enough to save their marriage? A depressed Ian ropes Greg into a ladsʼ night out, while Tanya and Jane go shopping for bridal outfits. THURS: Max plays dirty in an attempt to warn Abi off Jay, but Vanessaʼs curiosity threatens to scupper his plan. Tanya finds an unlikely ally in Syed when she makes a stand at the Salon, while Roxy suffers a day of disasters - but will she accept Michael as her knight in shining armour? Edward is devastated when his

good intentions upset Dot, and a fearful Ronnie turns to Phil in her hour of need. FRI: Michael is taken on an unwelcome trip by an enemy, while Roxy goes all-out to impress at the opening of the Boxing Gym. Ronnie pushes Phil too far, but will he guess her dark secret? Alfie comes to a heartbreaking decision, with devastating consequences for Kat. EMMERDALE MON: Carl warns Kelly to stay away. Jackson struggles to accept Jerryʼs good intentions. Will Jai go along with Charityʼs proposition? TUES: Jimmy is shocked by Kellyʼs revelation. Chas makes Debbie question her decision about Cameron. Hazel and Aaron are troubled by Jacksonʼs behaviour. WED: Debbie is torn over her feelings for Cameron. Hazelʼs outburst forces a change of heart on Jacksonʼs part. Jimmy is determined to find out if Kelly is telling the truth. THUR: Aaron is forced to admit that he watched Jacksonʼs video diary. Cain is unim-

pressed to see that Debbie has thawed towards Cameron. Faye looks forward to the future. FRI: Hazel and Aaron are determined to change Jacksonʼs mind. Carl insists that Jimmy should focus on Nicola. Alicia takes out her frustrations on Leyla. CORONATION STREET MON: A drunken Becky wreaks havoc after clashing with Liz and Kylie. Janice is secretly thrilled when Trevor arrives back in Weatherfield. Speculation is rife after Carla and Maria lose Frankʼs business. Maria makes a deal with the devil to save Underworld. Steve nears the end of his tether as Becky and Liz lock horns. Trevor cheers up Janice after she outstays her welcome at Peterʼs flat. THURS: A familiar face turns up with a proposition for Liz. Gail warns Frank about Tracyʼs murderous past. Is Sally ready to let Jeff stay the night?

FRI: Janice says goodbye to Weatherfield in typical Battersby style. The Rovers regulars divide into two camps as the Websters fight over Kevinʼs fortune. Hayley is concerned when Roy receives a mysterious letter. NEIGHBOURS MON: When Lucas arrives at his next race he is faced with a shock. Needing to get away from Tash, Summer finds that floors to sleep on are in short supply - but sympathetic Zeke offers her a place to stay. TUES: Lucasʼs worst nightmare has come true - Brennan knows about his illegal street racing. Lucas is certain that Brennan will arrest him, but Brennan surprises him with an unexpected deal. Will Lucas accept it, or face the consequences of his actions? Charlie must say goodbye to his new pet, so Lyn tries to cheer him up. WED: Lucas feels the pressure of agreeing to help Brennan - including an express instruction that Kate and Sophie are not to be involved. When Kate then becomes suspicious, Brennan

is furious. After coming to the rescue during Toadieʼs doomed attempt to babysit India, Sonyaʼs natural skills as a mother shine through. THURS: Paul learns of Tashʼs pregnancy and, suspicious of her motives, requests a paternity test. To Michaelʼs surprise, Rebecca supports Paul - explaining later that it is all part of her plan to be rid of him. Michaelʼs reaction is not what she expects. Convinced that Sonyaʼs resistance to having children is about her lack of faith in his parenting, Toadie arranges more babysitting. FRI: Finally convinced that Rebeccaʼs love is beyond doubt, Paul presents her with the affidavit that will secure her freedom. The only catch is, it is unsigned - he wants them to spend a night together at Lassiters and sign it in the morning. When Rebecca shares the news that she has to spend one more night with Paul, Michael believes she is going to compromise herself and begs her not to do it. Desperate to escape the orbit of Tash and Andrew, Summer finds refuge in Zeke.

CHELTENHAM PREVIEW HORSE RACING by Timelord

By the time you read this week’s column the Festival will be in full swing, Tuesday’s racing will have been and gone, and you will be looking for pointers to Wednesday and later. I do hope that you have had some success already and that my advice has helped you find some winners. Cheltenham Wednesday to Friday Preview I promised to revise and update my preliminary selections that I outlined here last week - so here goes. With 20 races to cover I am afraid that I cannot cover each in as much depth as I did for Tuesday’s races in last week’s issue. As always at the Festival the racing is top notch and is ultra-competitive so confidence has to be tempered somewhat to the level of optimism and hope rather than dogmatism. My approach this week will be to look for horses that have good speed ratings within my system and that have recorded fast times against my criteria on their last outing. This usually indicates that a horse is fit and in form, even if it did not win last time out. This aspect is critical at a top meeting like the Festival where any chinks in the armour are ruthlessly exposed by the true championship pace that the races are run at. I also look for horses that have won at the level and, if possible, over course and distance or on a track with similar characteristics. Selections: As previously I have provided a short list for each race in case of non runners. As always, because of multiple entries (particularly at Cheltenham) remember to check for non runners and race times. Wednesday: In the first race of Festival day 2 progressive Alfa Beat is a worthy favourite, improving with every run this season, but the unexposed Beshabar has had only one run and won. He is a sporting selection to lift this prize. Of the others Cannington Brook, Chicago Grey, Magnanimity and Arabella Boy all look to have decent chances. The Neptune Investment Management Hurdle can go the way of Jessie Harrington’s Oscars Well. Chief opposition may well come from So Young, First Lieutenant, Aikman and Tornado Bob. So Young is reputed to be a very good horse so the selection will have to be at the top of his game here. For the RSA Chase at 2.40 I like the look of Boston’s Angel who is a tough battler and is almost guaranteed to stay the distance. Mikael D’Haguenet can give him most to do. In the Queen Mother Champion Chase at 3.20 I am going for Golden Silver (Nap) who I think has been better than ever this season. Despite sometimes appearing to race lazily he has won his last three races (all Grade 2s) but also has a Grade 1 win on his CV and has looked the finished article to me this year. Big Zeb, Master Minded and the unexposed Woolcombe Folly provide stern opposition. The Coral Cup is usually a bookies benefit. There is likely to be a maximum field containing plenty of “plot” horses. The word from Ireland about Call The Police is that he is reckoned to be something of a handicap snip. Of the home defence I like the chances of Bothy best, followed by David Pipe’s Notus De La Tour. Others that have been running well are: Solix, Ballyhaunis, Aegean Dawn, Arcalis and Busker Royal. In a race sure to be run at a searching pace there is always likely to be plenty of incident and bad luck so “minimum stakes” (if any) is the order of the day. Tenor Nivernais is my selection for the 4.40 Fred Winter Novices’ Handicap Hurdle, another “minimum stakes” race if ever I saw one. In a tricky contest Indian Daudaie, The Starboard Bow, Harry Hunt, Looks Like Slim, L’Eminence Grise, What A Charm and Kingdom Of Munster have all clocked good times in the past and have decent chances. In the Champion Bumper at 5.15 I strongly fancy the chances of Ericht who is my top rated animal and has won his last two races, including a Grade 2 race. Bygones In Brid finished four lengths behind him last time and can again fill the runner-up berth. In a race full of unexposed horses Awaywiththegreys has my third best rating, followed by All For Cash and The Tracey Suffle. This trio may well present the chief threats to the above pair and could run well at decent each way odds. As usual the Irish will come with plenty of “could be anything” horses (Raise the Beat and Star Neuville to name just two) and Knight Pass and Cinders and Ashes are also well thought of, so make sure you get a working price for your selection. Thursday: In the Jewson Novices’ Chase, the first race at 1.30, providing that Realt Dubh does not turn out after running on Tuesday, Noble Prince should have the measure of his rivals. He has been set for this race for some time and the step up in distance should help. Mr Cracker, Loosen My Load, Invisible Man, Jessie’s Dream, Tail Of The Bank will provide stern opposition but the selection should prevail.

STEELERS CUTTING IT FINE FOR TITLE BID ICE HOCKEY By Sarah Youle

The Sheffield Steelers hopes of winning the League title now hang on the final weekend of the season, with two games against Braehead (away and home) deciding who takes the top spot. On Saturday the Steelers grudgingly took part in the 20/20 “Aladdin Cup” at the NIC in Nottingham. With bigger things on their minds, the Steelers lost to the Blaze and the Panthers, beating only the Braehead Clan, the team they must now beat twice to claim the league title. Sunday saw the Steelers and a large travelling support make what could well be their final trip to the Newcastle Vipers’ Whitley Bay home. Vipers, who have struggled financially throughout the season, are still in major financial strife, and failed to make the play-offs after losing their game against the Belfast Giants the day before. The Steelers took the lead in the ninth minute, with a strike from Joey Talbot getting past netminder Charlie Effinger. Player-coach Ben Simon doubled their lead just a few minutes later and the Steelers closed the period 2-0 up. In the second Ashley Tait found the back of the net, and Tait nearly added another just minutes later. In the 33rd minute the home side’s hopes were bolstered with a goal from their coach Danny Stewart. In the third period Rod Sarich scored the Steelers’ fourth goal of the evening, but the away fans were given a bit of a scare as the Vipers began to claw their way back into the game, goals from Jaroslaw Rzeszutko and a second from Danny Stewart making it a tense finish to the game, which ended 4-3 in the Steelers’ favour. The 5th Teddy Bear Toss and Auction will take place at the Steelers game on March 20th (game tickets available from the Motorpoint Arena Box Office). Fans bring a soft toy to the game in a plastic bag and, when the Steelers score their first goal, throw it onto the ice. A concept originally started in North America, the idea has really taken off in Sheffield. All of the toys collected are given to Amy’s House Respite Nursery. Amy’s House is a weekend respite facility that cares for children with special needs and their siblings, giv-

Angler’s Corner

The North’s largest entertainment weekly, telephone our sales team to get your advert on these pages 0114 276 3633 opt.1 Tarablaze is my top rated in the 2.05 and earns the vote. If they run Stow, Don’t Push It, Benbane Head and Kayf Aramis might provide most opposition. The Ryanair Chase is run at 2.40 and, with Kempes and Weird Al being aimed at the Gold Cup and Scotsirish, Made In Taipan, and Riverside Theatre all non runners the race has been thrown wide open. Leading chances are held by: Golden Silver, Somersby, Captain Cee Bee, Rare Bob, Gauvain and Kalahari King. The first named trio are set to run on Wednesday in the Champion Chase which leaves the others of which I like Gauvain, who ran well last time behind Master Minded, the best. Kalahari King can chase him home. In the World Hurdle at 3.20 I ought to be tipping dual previous winner Big Bucks but I just can’t have him as a value selection (the whole basis of this column). This season’s revelation has been Grands Crus who has cruised through his races to easy victories (and genuinely might be anything) but still has it all to prove at this level. Both appear to have outstanding chances but neither represents any value in my book. Instead I am reaching for the “hopeful” book and am going to select Souffleur to present a bit of each way value against the top two. He has only 2.75 lengths to make up on Big Buck’s from their running at Aintree last April and has not been seen since. Admittedly the stable could be in better form but if he is in top fettle he might just spring a big shock at rewarding odds. Powerstation and Celestial Halo also have each way possibilities. 4.00 Fine Parchment is the selection here as he has been in cracking form all season and has a good speed rating. 4.40 Zitenka would be interesting if it could get a run but probably needs too many to come out of the race for that to happen. However, I am going for Far More Serious as he is certain to get a run in the race, ran well last time and has a decent jockey on board in Sam Waley-Cohen. Cornish Sett could be the one to give him most to do. 5.15 No selection – charity race. Friday: The Triumph Hurdle kicks off Friday’s card at 1.30 and I reckon that this could develop into a two horse race between Unaccompanied and Grandouet with a marginal preference for the former. Sailors Warn and Fearless Falcon can fight it out for third. Tipping the winner of the 2.05, the County Hurdle, is a huge task for any tipster. With so many plots and counter plots it is almost impossible to pick the winner. However, I had selected Final Approach to win the Tote Gold Trophy at Newbury before that race was re-scheduled. I am therefore going to stick with him for this contest as last time out he won the valuable MCR Hurdle in Ireland in January, beating Call The Police by two lengths. He carries only 10 stone 3 lbs and is sure to get a run. Of the others Sublimity, Bothy, The Betchworth Kid, Soldatino, Notus de la Tour, Eradicate and Hunterview look to have the best chances. The Albert Bartlett Hurdle is run at 2.40 and to my mind principally concerns just two horses - Gagewell Flyer, who has run well in Ireland this year, and Bobs Worth who also has decent Graded race form in the book. The selection is Gagewell Flyer. In the Gold Cup run at 3.20 Denman is my idea of the one with the most solid form. His run behind Diamond Harry (sadly missing here) was pretty special. However, I think he could be vulnerable to a younger horse and I reckon that tough battler Midnight Chase might give them all something to think about at a decent price. If that rogue Tidal Bay consents to put his best foot forward he also has every chance of causing an upset and warrants a small each way saver – a remark that applies similarly to Kempes who ran really well when winning the Irish Hennessy last time out. Of the others Neptune Collonges, Carruthers, Kauto Star, Imperial Commander and Long Run will all be dangerous but then this is the Gold Cup after all! The “Amateurs Gold Cup” is the Christie’s Foxhunter Chase run immediately after the Gold Cup itself at 4.00. I have heard plenty about the David Easterby runner Jaunty Flight and he is a sporting choice to land this prize again for the connections of Amicelli, who was successful a couple of years ago. Several of the contestants have a string of wins to their names from the Point-to-Point field but to my mind the one that makes most appeal behind the selection is Sericina who warrants the “saver”. The 4.40 is the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Handicap and looks pretty much impenetrable to me. I am therefore advising minimum stakes and will recommend a small each bet on that rogue Hills of Aran, in the hope that he can at last show his true form. King of the Night also looks to have a decent chance among a host of dangers and might be worth a “saver”. In the concluding Grand Annual Chase at 5.15 I like both Santa’s Son and Peak Raider, with a marginal preference for the latter who is on a roll at present. The recommendation is a small each way bet on both however as Santa’s Son ran well to win last time out. Lastoftheleaders, Oiseau de Nuit, Elite Land and Askthemaster are others with reasonable chances in a very open contest. ing their parents some much-needed time do what they have to, be that shopping, a trip to the cinema or simply getting some sleep. Amy’s House provides care for children with autism, Rhett’s Syndrome, Downs Syndrome, epilepsy, and a variety of other debilitating illnesses, giving their parents some much needed rest while their children are cared for in a safe, welcoming environment. The money raised in previous seasons has been used to equip a sensory room, and to build a sensory garden for the children. Based at Ballifield Primary School in Handsworth, Amy’s House was founded by Maurice Littlewood as a place for his granddaughter Molly and children like her to go, following the death of Molly’s sister Amy, who passed away aged eight from meningitis. Since the first Teddy Toss and Auction in 2006 Build-a-Bear Warehouse have very generously donated teddies for each of the Steelers players to make. The team go down to Build-aBear and stuff the bears themselves, naming them and filling in and signing their birth certificates. The bears are also dressed in their own tiny replica jerseys, made and donated by Rhino Sports, another Teddy Toss supporter who have been there since the very beginning.

TRENTSIDE FISHERIES

by Clint Walker

I keep an eye on internet forums to find out what other anglers are up to, particular venues which are fishing well and what is getting on people’s nerves; this week I found a thread about ‘conflict’. Who do anglers come into conflict with though? I’m sure we all have stories to tell, particular groups we love to hate, but who really gets on your nerves? For me, I would have to say irresponsible dog owners;- the kind of people who have an overweight Labrador off the leash which is allowed to rummage through my food bag, pee up the back of my bivvy then go for a paddle right through my lines. It’s not the dog, (I have a slightly chubby Labrador by the way) it’s the owner....Surely they must see that whilst enquiring “...have you caught anything yet mate?” their canine is rapidly demolishing the slim chances I have of actually catching anything, I am ready to inflict a stream of expletives their way and threaten them with the gentle insertion of a bankstick?? Just a though next time you ask an angler if they are doing well and you have a dog in tow...... Other anglers; we all started somewhere, I realise that, but it makes me somewhat sad to see a gang of tracksuit clad lads unloading crates of beer from the boot of a Vauxhall Corsa before pitching a brightly coloured ‘tent’ on the opposite bank and proceeding to shout obscenities across at each other as they consume increasing amounts of alcohol. If you want to go somewhere nice and get tipsy, fine, just show a bit more consideration for those around you! (...and when you fall in, don’t expect me to help). While I’m on about it, don’t cast a 3oz lead into my swim from 100 yards away either, and then ask where I’m fishing...... Boats; I don’t mind canal boats with colourful decorative jugs on the roof deck, the ubiquitous terrier (back to dog owners)in the bow, and the clueless “...let’s have a boating holiday!” townies who descend on the local waterways each summer, I just wish they would keep to the middle....the wet bit, instead of bouncing off the sides of the canal every time something approaching a bend

Cyclists; why do you insist on flying down a towpath, or the lakeside walkway at Mach2? If you are out for a nice gentle Sunday ride to take in the fresh summer air that’s fine, but as an angler trying to be stealthy (i.e. hidden away) you are more than likely going to run over me as I lay on the bank trying to espy signs of fish in the margins. It’s difficult to fish with a broken leg, but not as hard as trying to ride a bike if I see you first! Slow down!

ROVERS GAIN A POINT IN NOTTINGHAM MATCH REPORT www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

The Rovers made three changes to the starting line-up from the match against Coventry City on Tuesday night. Sam Hird and Joseph Mills returned to the side and Simon Gillett started for the first time since early in the season. The Rovers attacked the River end in the first half. After an opening five minutes of very little action, the home side settled down and began to pressure the Rovers defence. An attack down the home left had Konchesky passing inside for Majewski but the ball ran away from him to the byline where he managed to get a foot to it but only succeeded in putting the ball gently into Woods hands. A free kick in the ninth minute from the Forest right was punched away by Woods for a corner. Two minutes later the Rovers got in the first strike from either side at goal when Moussa shot from 30yards but put wide. The Rovers now began to show and five minutes later Wilson put wide from 25yards. Then Gunter, for the Forest, ran a good fifty yards down the right before hitting a low ball across the face of goal that nobody got a touch to. For the Rovers, minutes later, Wilson hit a left foot shot wide from just outside of the penalty area. The game had now evened out. On the half hour Tudgay put wide for the home team from outside the penalty area. Two minutes later and Coppinger was just over the bar with a free kick to the left of goal. Chambers, for Forest, hit a stinging shot from outside the left angle of the box that had Woods diving to his right to gather at the foot of the near post in the 35th minute. Five minutes later Tudgay received on the edge of the box and had time and space to control the ball and line up his shot but he fired wide. Three minutes later and Friend skied a clearance in his own penalty box, Martis then lost the ball to Earnshaw, who got in a strike on goal from close range but Woods was there to block it and see it cleared. An even first half left the match goalless at the break. The home side set the second half going but it was the Rovers who went on to the attack with some good movement on the right before the ball reached Moussa inside the box. He played it back to Hayter on the edge of the area but he fired just wide. In the 50th minute the Rovers won a corner, the first of the match but nothing came from it. A minute later the same result came following a Forest corner. Five minutes later, Chambers got in a crack at goal from 25yards but it took a large

GILLETʼS JOY ROVERS NEWS www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

Doncaster Rovers were handed a massive boost ahead of our 0-0 draw against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, with the news that midfielder Simon Gillett was deemed fit enough for a starting berth. Added to by the return of Mustapha Dumbuya to the squad, Gillett’s inclusion ensured that his four-month lay-off due to medial ligament injuries was a distant memory - although the 25 yearold admitted that he was feeling the strain after the game’s final whistle. However the main emphasis for Gillett was the team’s performance - praising the side for emerging from a game against top opposition with a share of the spoils. “I think that we’re very pleased (with a draw against Forest),” Gillett told RoversPlayer. “We knew it would be a tough game, they’re at the top of the table pushing for a top-six spot. They have a lot of attacking

deflection for a corner to the Forest. The match had developed into an end to end affair at this stage. In the 68th minute, a good link-up down the middle with Coppinger, Mason and Hayter gave Mason a strike from just inside the area but he put just wide. Two minutes later and Mason had a go from 20 yards but was again wide. A corner to the Forest came to nothing but they went on to make the Rovers defence work hard to keep them out. In the 83rd minute good work down the Rovers right with Gillett, Coppinger and Dumbuya enabled Coppinger to win the corner. At the other end, a low cross from the right by McGugan reached McCleary about 15yards out but he got tangled up with the ball and when he did hit the ball it was blocked. Sustained pressure from the Forest over the next couple of minutes had the Rovers defence at full stretch but they and Woods were equal to the task. Three minutes from time Gillett, Hayter and Coppinger linked on the right but the latter’s final shot skewed across the goal and away. Four minutes of added time brought the excitement to fever pitch as the home crowd roared their favourites on. Three minutes in and Tyson got to the left byline before pulling the ball back for Boyd, just inside the area, to completely miss the ball when he went to kick it. The referee’s whistle went on a very entertaining second half which, for long periods, was end-to-end. The Rovers contributed largely to this and showed many glimpses of the play we have come to expect of them. An excellent point gained for the Rovers.

SEAN: WE STUCK TO OUR GAME PLAN GAFFERS REACTION www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk

Doncaster Rovers added a further point to their tally this season, following a well-earned point against promotion-chasing Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday. In a more characteristic Rovers performance, which included midfielder Simon Gillett making his first start since he suffered a double medial ligament injury, Doncaster Rovers constantly proved a threat to Forest, whilst Rovers manager Sean O’Driscoll admitted his delight at gaining a Championship clean sheet. “We came with a game plan and we stuck to it,” said the Rovers manager. “It’s what you need to do when you come to a ground where the home side have an awesome record. We rode our luck once or twice, but we were there to ride our luck. People got blocks in and our goalkeeper has done well on a couple of occasions.” “But we were a threat and we were always a threat with the ball. We probably passed it better in this game than we have done in the past few games, so I am pleased with that. The three subs that came on all contributed as well; sometimes when you set up your eleven and make changes, it disrupts people.” “I would be surprised if Billy (Davies, Forest manager) wasn’t pleased with his team, because I thought they gave everything. A 0-0 draw, for both teams, with 22 players who were tired - both teams worked extremely hard. I didn’t think we gave them anything and if they were going to get a goal, they were going to have to work for it and if we were going to get a goal, they were going to have to switch off.” “Overall, I am pleased with a point and I would have taken a point before the game. I’d have taken a clean sheet definitely!”

options, but I thought we did well. We almost nicked it ourselves towards the end, but it was a welldeserved point.” “Copps (James Coppinger) and Ryan Mason both had good chances. I thought that Ryan made a difference when he came on. He had a couple of good shots. Unfortunately, they didn’t go in, but I felt we could nick it. Sadly it wasn’t to be.” “The game gave us the opportunity to pass the ball. The way they set out and the way we set out...it’s different every game. Obviously we do want to play football and at any opportunity possible, we will try to do that.” “It was my first game for a long time - and I am knackered! I know a lot of the other lads are tired as well, but you have to put it in and work hard to get any points out of this league. I think we’ll go home and sleep well tonight! I feel okay though, just a few aches and pains - I’ll be alright.”

ALL SQUARE IN TOP OF TABLE CLASH MATCH REPORT www.themillers.co.uk

Despite a bombardment on the Bury goal in the second half, Rotherham United were forced to settle for a point after a goalless draw with Bury. The Millers’ best chance came in the second half when Nicky Law shot wide when clear on goal, but the point gained moves the Millers back into fourth place in the table. Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore made three changes to the side that lost at Bradford on Tuesday. Top scorer Adam Le Fondre returned to the side after being rested in mid-week, with Liam Henderson dropping to the bench. The Millers were also forced into two changes at the back after Nick Fenton and Danny Coid dropped out through injury, captain Ryan Cresswell and Dale Tonge came into the starting 11. It was the Millers who came flying out of the traps and inside the first minute Ryan Taylor got on the end of an L Fondre knock down, only to see his goalbound effort canon off Tom Lees and go out for a corner. Two minutes later and the Millers were a matter of millimetres away from taking an early lead. Le Fondre was again involved as he turned Ian Thomas-Moore’s header goalwards, but Lees was in the right place to hook the ball off the line. The visitors were restricted to shots from distance in the early stages, midfielder Peter Sweeney tried his luck twice but could only fire wide from outside the area. With 14 minutes on the clock, Johnny Mullins had to be at his best to deny Kyle Bennett a goal scoring opportunity as the Bury midfielder tried to get on the end of a Ryan Lowe centre. Both teams struggled to create any real chances as the game descended into a scrap but that changed after 25 minutes when Andy Bishop had a golden opportunity to give the visitors the lead. The striker was put through by strike partner Lowe but could only fire straight at Andy Warrington when well placed. A minute later, Efe Sodje was shown a yellow card for a tough challenge on Le Fondre but the Millers were disappointed an advantage wasn’t played as Law was clean through. From the resulting free kick the home side created another opportunity for themselves, but Mullins could only fire over from Callum Kennedy’s pinpoint delivery. On 33 minutes Millers skipper Cresswell was close to getting a goal against his former club but his header went just wide. Then a minute later the Shakers’ Bennett fired a low drive into the side netting after good build up play by Lowe. On 40 minutes Le Fondre tried his luck from long range but his curling effort was straight at Cameron Belford in the Bury goal. In the final minute of the half, Le Fondre created a decent opening with a neat piece of skill but his effort on goal drifted wide of the far post. On 50 minutes Bury had a glorious opportunity to take the lead. A cross from the left fell kindly into the path of Lees, but the centre half could only direct his shot wide of Warrington’s far post from

six yards out. Four minutes later Warrington was called into action to make a smart low save after a strike from David Worrall. Bury had been on top for the first 15 minutes of the second half but the Millers came back into the game on the hour mark with a sustained period of pressure on the Bury goal. On 61 minutes a long kick by Warrington was flicked on by Ryan Taylor, but Le Fondre’s snap-shot from just inside the area was well held by Belford. The Millers’ best chance of the game came on 62 minutes. Ryan Taylor played a ball in behind the Shakers’ defence for Law who sprinted clear on goal, but after a poor second touch he could only lift the ball over Belford and wide of the near post. Bury responded with a shot from Steven Schumacher which was pushed away by a scrambling Warrington. The Millers pressed into the final 10 minutes but despite dominating possession couldn’t create any clear cut chances. With eight minutes remaining Ryan Taylor was sent through on goal but from a tight angle his shot was parried by Belford, with the rebound just eluding the onrushing Le Fondre. Rotherham: Warrington; Tonge, Cresswell (c), Mullins, Kennedy, Marshall, Law, J Taylor (Harrison 70), Thomas-Moore (Daley 70), R Taylor, Le Fondre Subs not used: Ashworth, Warne, Henderson, Bradley, Annerson Bury: Belford, Picken, Lees, Sodje, Skarz, Sweeney, Worrall, Schumacher (c), Bishop (Holroyd 67), Lowe, Bennett (Haworth 67) Subs not used: John-Lewis, M Jones, Branagan, A Jones, Harrop.

KENNEDY EXTENDS MILLERS LOAN MILLERS NEWS www.themillers.co.uk

Rotherham United are pleased to confirm Callum Kennedy’s stay with the club has been extended until the end of the season after impressing during his short time with the Millers. The 21 year old full back, on loan from Swindon Town, has made four appearances in a Rotherham United shirt since joining in February. The Millers’ Chief Operating Officer Paul Douglas welcomed the deal, and commented: “We are very happy that Callum will be remaining with us until the end of the season. He has played very well during his short time here. He has fitted in well and he was keen to stay on.

RONNIE PLEASED WITH HARD WORK GAFFERS REACTION www.themillers.co.uk

Ronnie Moore felt his Rotherham United side deserved to win after a goalless draw with secondplaced Bury at Don Valley Stadium. Nicky Law and Ryan Taylor were both denied when through on goal in the second half as the Millers were forced to settle for a point, which moves them back into fourth position in the League Two table. “I think we deserved to win the game,” said Ronnie after the game. “To be fair I think they had the best chance of the game when their centre half has put it wide, but we have had a lot of chances. We didn’t seem to get the break but we worked hard, chased everything but couldn’t get the icing on the cake. I cannot complain, we needed that luck, especially when Lawsy went through on goal but the bounce on the pitch has cost us.” The Millers welcomed Ryan Cresswell back into the side after a long lay-off through injury and Ronnie was delighted with his captain’s display. “It was great to see him back and he could have scored,” added Ronnie. “He has had a real go at it and nearly got his head kicked off by the ‘keeper. It was great to get him through the game because he was cramping up with 20 minutes to go, but we took no notice of him and left him out there. The 90 minutes is what he needed and he has got through it really well. I thought Johnny Mullins was absolutely fantastic alongside him and was man-of-the-match by a mile.” Nick Fenton was missing for the Millers and Ronnie explained why the centre half was absent. “He has a thigh strain,” revealed Ronnie. “He had a fitness test before the game and failed it. He should be fine for next week but we will monitor it and if not we might have to bring a centre back in.”

NINE MAN BLADES STUNG BY HORNETS MATCH REPORT www.sufc.co.uk

Two first-half sending offs at Watford played a major role as the Blades were unable to build on the midweek victory. Darius Henderson and Lee Williamson - both former Watford players - were dismissed by referee Dean Whitestone to ruin any chance of a revival after Danny Graham’s early goal. Martin Taylor and Ross Jenkins both netted after the break as United’s nine-men battled gamely. There was a major surprise in United’s starting line up as striker Henderson starting for the first time in 11 months following hamstring problems. Boss Adams made a total of three changes with Williamson, and Mattock also brought in. The players to drop out were Lowton, Bogdanovic and Cresswell, with the latter two on the bench alongside Australian goalkeeper Thomas, signed this week. Mattock took Lowton’s place at left back and the remainder of the back four was unchanged. The formation was 4-4-2 with Williamson the right of midfield and Henderson partnering Vokes in attack. Henderson was involved as early as the first minute, delivering a

cross from the left, but the better start came from the home side. Montgomery had to clear over his own bar from Buckley’s cross after he had beat Mattock and Quinn. However, on 10 minutes, Watford grabbed the lead... with a little help from United. Buckley was again the provider of a cross from the right, this time an attempted clearance from Collins was sliced and well saved by Simonsen, but GRAHAM was ideally placed to nod in the rebound. Jenkins and Henderson were booked for separate incidents inside the opening 14 minutes and the Blades hit back with a series of half-chances. Williamson fired wide with a first-time effort, Vokes was unable to climb high enough to direct Henderson’s cross towards goal and then the latter shot across goal and wide with his left foot. Watford remained a major threat and Doyle had to make a block from Jenkins and then Deeney fired wide after holding off Nosworthy, but United’s day was to get a lot worse before half-time... mainly due to two red cards. On 28 minutes, and from United’s corner, Hodson cleared from inside his six yard box and was caught by Henderson as the big striker slid in, looking for a favourable ricochet. Being on a yellow card, Henderson was shown a second and made the long trudge back to the dressing room.

Hodson was stretchered off after lengthy treatment and the game was just settling down when United were reduced to nine men. Referee Whitestone showed Williamson a straight red card for a late aerial charge at Doyley, although initial thoughts of a deliberate elbow were wide of the mark. Quinn was also booked for his protests. United switched to a 4-3-1 system but, understandably, were on the back foot for the remainder of the half, plus the six minutes of added time. Lowry cleared up the danger after Simonsen and Mattock collided and Graham was inches from connecting with Deeney’s lobbed cross. Before the break Graham’s long range shot was saved by Simonsen and Doyley should have done better with a free header from Thompson’s cross before the whistle presented the Blades with a little respite at half-time. The second half began in a similar vein with Watford on the offensive. Eustace was off target with a shot and then Lowry deflected a shot from Buckley over the crossbar. From the resulting corner, however, Watford used their numerical advantage to double their lead. From Cowie’s delivery, Thompson’s header was flicked on to the crossbar by Simonsen, but TAYLOR seized on the loose ball and directed it into the unguarded goal. Adams brought on Evans as a lone

striker for the tiring Vokes but Watford continued to attack. Graham fired across goal and wide and Nosworthy deflected away another effort from Deeney. More attacking-minded players in Yeates and Bogdanovic were introduced for Montgomery and Quinn with 20 minutes remaining but it remained one-way traffic. Simonsen saved Deeney’s near post header and Buckley was wide with another shot from 20 yards. The Blades won a couple of corners as the final ten minutes approached but were unable to put pressure on Loach’s goal and as the game edged towards the final whistle Watford again attacked. Cowie’s header was saved by Simonsen but the third and final goal arrived on 86 minutes. Eustace delivered a diagonal cross and JENKINS did well to direct his header beyond the right hand of the United goalkeeper. Three minutes of added time prolonged the misery for the 978 Blades fans inside Vicarage Road. Watford: Loach, Hodson (Thompson 32), Eustace, Taylor, Mariappa, Cowie, Deeney (Weimann 82), Graham (Sordell 84), Buckley, Doyley, Jenkins. Unused: Gilmartin, Bennett, Mingoia, Whichelow. Blades: Simonsen, Nosworthy, Montgomery (Yeates 70), Henderson, Doyle, Williamson, Vokes (Evans 60), Mattock, Lowry, Collins, Quinn (Bogdanovic 70). Unused: Ertl, Cresswell, Bent, Thomas.

ADAMS IN PAIN GAFFERS REACTION www.sufc.co.uk

Micky Adams couldn’t hide his pain when facing the media following the loss at Watford on Saturday. A nightmare first-half which saw the hosts gifted a goal and then Darius Henderson and Lee Williamson both dismissed against their former club crushed any hope of United building on their midweek success: “I am bitterly disappointed because we came here after a great win with a bit more confidence but after the red cards the game was over. “We never saw what Watford were capable of because it became just damage limitation and to be fair the lads left on did well to keep the score down to three.” The Blades boss felt strongly that the decisions affecting the sendings-off were hard to take: “The yellow card for Henderson’s first yellow card was harsh to say the least and for the second - although we don’t like to see anyone injured and hope the lad is okay - Darius had every right to go for the ball because. “I have looked at playbacks and his eyes were only on the ball - there was no intent to injure anyone. Lee Williamson jumped into his opponent, fair enough, but a red card? He just barged into him. “Having said all that I recognize the fact that we were already a goal down and one of my defenders will be watching a re-run of that from behind his hands.” The manner of the loss prompted Adams to question his own contribution to the continuing uphill battle: “That’s twice since I have been here that we have seen ill-discipline and had a double sending-off. As a result, I will review everything I am doing because I am responsible for the team and we need eleven men out there if we are to get out of this. “I am bitterly disappointed for various reasons but massively so for our supporters as they have not seen a contest. “Although it is difficult to talk positively after a 3-0 loss but it is a battle lost and not the end of the war. We will regroup and pitch up for the Leeds game next week.”

OLD HABITS DIE HARD FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Jon Warburton

Well what an absolute farce Saturday was. After a morale boosting win against Nottingham Forest just over a week ago, the Blades should have been buoyed ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. But unfortunately we seem to be developing a habit of making crucial individual errors in every single game. While Steve Simonsen was at fault for allowing a timid effort to squirm underneath him against Forest, he could do nothing to prevent a six yard thunderbolt from Neill Collins deflecting out of his grasp and onto the grateful head of the onrushing Watford striker. At the minute it appears that any one of our backline is capable of making a game changing error, just when we look like getting a foothold in the game. And with Darius Henderson carrying on where he left off before his injury it all made for a miserable day in the north of the capital. As a player he definitely has a touch of the Jekyll and Hyde about him. On the one hand he is built like a cage-fighter and constantly on the wrong side of the referee. But at times he can demonstrate the deft touches and clinical finishing that convinced Kevin Blackwell to part with £2 million to acquire his services. Unfortunately it is the former trait that seems to get the most attention and it was definitely the case with Saturday’s referee Mr. Whitestone. We can bleat about officials all day long but at the end of the day we have to get on with it, because the record books will not have a column that reads ‘relegated due to bad refereeing decisions.’ Those who thought we had a chance before this recent setback should still think so, as we were never likely to pick up much at Watford. This Saturday however, will be defining…

And so it proved as Wednesday failed to find a way through a solid rearguard, leaving County to take the short hop back to the Midlands triumphant.

MEGSONʼS VERDICT GAFFERʼS REACTION www.swfc.co.uk

Gary Megson has called into question the penalty that sealed the Owls’ fate against Notts County on Saturday at Hillsborough. Alan Gow clashed with Mark Beevers on the edge of the box and the referee pointed to the spot, much to the frustration of the home side. Megson said: “It was a coming together and the referee has given a penalty but Owls: Weaver, M Morrison, if that is a penalty, there could R Johnson, Beevers, Spurr, have been three penalties in Sedgwick (Jones 46), Osbourne that game.” (O’Connor 68), Miller, Teale, C Despite bossing possession for Morrison, Mellor (J Johnson 46) most of the contest, the Owls Unused substitutes: failed to truly trouble visiting O’Donnell, Coke, Potter, keeper Stuart Nelson, who had Heffernan only one shot to deal with all afternoon. Notts County: Nelson, Megson said: “We haven’t Darby, Edwards, Lee, Bishop, done enough to trouble their McDonald (Spicer 86), Gow goalkeeper.

BOBʼS DICTIONARY CORNER FANS WEEKLY COLUMN by Bunsen Bob

Gary Megson described Saturday’s performance as “insipid”. So, I duly got my dictionary out to see what it meant. According to my good friends at Collins, our performance on Saturday was “without distinctive, interesting, or stimulating qualities.” I can easily agree with that. Also, according to this definition the contest was, “without sufficient taste to be pleasing.” Although it sounds like an excerpt from a Stuart Hall match report this description is pretty much bang on. Therefore, I must give credit to Gary Megson and his vocabulary which I think is really, really……good. Around this time last year I recall writing many columns of an anxious nature, rally cries and the call to initiate relegation battle stations. The final furlong of this season is shaping up to be a mundane affair. In all honestly, the results are now mostly irrelevant as long as we keep ticking over to avoid being sucked into the bottom four scrap but that is highly unlikely. The manner in which the team performs should also be duly ignored as I believe Megson is juggling and experimenting to see what his best team is and what he needs to add to it come August. This could be the longest pre-season in Sheffield Wednesday history. Like I hinted at last week, if you are hit with the stark reality that your club may die, you should be grateful for life and the security of mid-table. That said, our literal survival will only appease me and many others for this season. Next season will be just as big as this one, for many different reasons. Right now, it’s preparation time.
