Football: Houllier builds around the `good heart' of Liverpool

IT WOULD have been easy to change five players at half-time, Gerard Houllier remarked, sitting in the air-conditioned interview room at Ewood Park shortly after his Liverpool team had drawn 2-2 with Blackburn Rovers in the energy- sapping heat of Saturday afternoon. But he had resisted the temptation to give them a breather. "I wanted them to suffer a bit," he observed, with a small grin.

European Championship: Sheringham and Fowler recalled as teenager Woodgate makes England debut

Football: Cole is likely to partner Shearer

KEVIN KEEGAN was pondering his striking options at Bisham Abbey yesterday. Should he go for pace or muscle? Experience or youth? Penalty- box poacher or roving creator? With Alan Shearer's place apparently cast in stone, as it has been since Gary Lineker's retirement seven years ago, and Michael Owen and Kevin Phillips injured, the decision comes down to who partners the captain out of Andy Cole, Teddy Sheringham, Emile Heskey and Robbie Fowler.

FOR ALL the thousands of column inches devoted to the performing arts, one area remains almost permanently hidden from view. It is the rehearsal room. Audiences and critics are virtually never allowed access. And, for the sake of their own reputations, directors and performers rarely divulge what mistakes, tantrums, sobbing and sackings go on.

Football: Fowler given six-match suspension

ROBBIE FOWLER intends to appeal against the six-match suspension he was given by a Football Association disciplinary commission yesterday for both his "cocaine snorting" goal celebration during the Merseyside derby last weekend and his fracas with Graeme Le Saux last month.

Racing: Even Flow to stop Pipe plan

THOUSANDS OF punters will walk into betting shops this morning convinced that they have a bet for the big race at Aintree which seems nothing short of pre-ordained. Twelve months ago, Martin Pipe, Tony McCoy and the owner David Johnson sent a five-year-old to run in the John Hughes Memorial Chase over the National fences, and despite his youth, he won as impressively as any horse in the race's history. Today, they will attempt to repeat the trick with Gris D'Estruval, and the bookies will be treating him with as much caution as Double Thriller, favourite for tomorrow's Grand National.
