Garth Crooks has slammed Jurgen Klopp for his touchline antics during Liverpool’s 5-1 victory over Brighton.

Furthermore, the BBC pundit believes that Brighton boss Chris Hughton had every right to be angry with his counterpart on Saturday afternoon.

The pair could be seen in an odd exchange following the final whistle at the Amex Stadium, despite neither manager revealing what exactly was said afterwards.

And speaking after the weekend’s Premier League action finished, Crooks admitted that he was not happy with Klopp’s behaviour as Liverpool romped to victory.

Crooks said in his BBC Sport team of the week column, in what was meant to be an explanation over why he picked Roberto Firmino: ‘Losing 5-1 is no fun, especially when Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is fist-pumping every goal and celebrating with his staff like it’s the final of the Champions League. I understand the importance of winning, but this was Brighton. 

‘What I do take exception to is any manager being kept waiting to shake hands once a game has finished, while his opposite number finishes hugging and kissing his players and staff in celebration of their victory.

‘I sense this was exactly what happened after the final whistle, and why Chris Hughton tore a strip off Klopp immediately after the game and quite rightly.

‘What is happening to the traditions of this great game? Has winning and money destroyed everything we hold dear? 

‘The convention is we shake hands immediately after a game because it brings closure to the occasion, and it starts with the managers.’

Liverpool’s victory has leapfrogged them above Arsenal into fourth place in the Premier League, while defeat has left Brighton in 12th after 15 matches.

Shelter charity worker claimed £32,425 in benefits

Jodie Broad, 30, (pictured)  claimed she was a single parent when in fact she was living with her husband in Hyde, Greater Manchester

A charity worker who scrounged over £30,000 in benefits while helping the homeless wept as she walked free from court.

Mother-of-three Jodie Broad, 30, claimed she was a single parent when in fact she was happily married and living with her husband Barry.

Over a three-year period the nursery helper pocketed child tax credits, income support and housing benefit – despite having a joint income with Mr Broad, also 30.

The claim had initially been legitimate as the couple had temporarily split up, but she carried on claiming to be single after the pair got back together in 2012.

Broad, who volunteered with the homelessness charity Shelter, claimed £32,425 in benefits from July 2012 to November 2015 before she was found out.

She later claimed she had financial problems and had ‘buried her head in the sand’, Minshull Street Crown Court heard. 

But inquiries revealed she made fresh claims for benefits when they moved house and she maintained she was single when questioned by welfare officials.

Broad, of Hyde in Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to three charges of fraud and brought an overnight bag with her in preparation for going to jail.

But Judge John Potter told her: ‘The money you pocketed is money you stole from your community, it was money that could have been used in the community.

‘But it is clear from the references that you do a lot with the community and not only do you do it you do it in an exemplary fashion.

‘You will know the harm taking the money can have on the community, £30,000 could have been used to support people in the community.

‘You had financial difficulties and I accept that affected your life. This is an unusual case because you are somebody who committed this fraud for a significant period of time while doing a lot of good work in the community.

‘I must juggle those points with a lack of previous convictions, and I am satisfied that I do not have to impose an immediate sentence of imprisonment.’

Earlier Prosecuting Amanda Johnson said: ‘The nature of the dishonesty is that she failed to disclose that she in fact was married to Barry Broad and living with him and their children.

‘The defendant was interviewed in December 2015 and confirmed that she did not disclose her change in circumstances.

‘She said she had some time separated from her husband and agreed the they had moved back in to the family home together in October 2012.

‘They lived together as a family and they shared a joint income. Over the years she was sent a number of claim forms by Tameside Borough Council which gave the defendant the opportunity to explain her change of circumstances but she did not.

‘In fact she moved a number of times during the relevant period and fresh claims were made to say that she had no other source of income. She is a defendant of previous good character.’

She was given 12 months jail suspended for two years and was ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work. She will face a Proceeds of Crime hearing later. 

Strange footage from the 1930s resurfaces

A strange clip from the 1930s in which Dr William Marston claims to have invented a machine that can compare the emotions of women has resurfaced.

The leading name in his field and creator of the Wonder Woman comics, can be seen conducting a series of experiments on three women with different colour hair.

His machine, dubbed a ‘stinograph’, measured their emotional response to certain stimuli, including gambling, watching a romantic film and hearing a gunshot.

Dr Marston, has since had a Hollywood film made about his life, discovered gambling stirs the greatest emotions in the red-headed woman.

The blonde was the easiest to scare and the brunette most enjoyed the romantic film. The test is believed to work in a similar way to that of a lie detector.

The bizarre clip has resurfaced as the string of sexual abuse claims in the entertainment industry continue unabated. 

Dr Marston’s creations 

Dr Marston was the creator of the systolic blood pressure test, a key component featured in the polygraph test that was invented just a few years later.

The idea behind it was that when someone was lying it would cause their blood pressure to rise, whereas it would remain the same when telling the truth.

Dr Marston, educated at Harvard University, took this concept with him into his body of research on the emotions of women with different hair colours.

His  machine, dubbed a 'stinograph', measured their emotional response to certain stimuli, including gambling, watching a romantic film and hearing a gunshot

It is presumed that Dr Marston believed all women of the same hair colour would have similar reactions to the same stimuli.

The narrator explains the results from the machine during the video. ‘Here we see how a redhead reacts to gambling’, he says.

‘And as she wins, Marston’s emotion finder indicates that redheads show most emotion when gambling.

‘Now girls are taking reaction tests in matters pertaining to love. 

‘Watching love scenes, all girls show some kind of emotional response to a romantic scene, but not all show a similar reaction.

‘The stinograph shows it’s the brunette who most wants to be loved.’

Who was most frightened? 

The final test involves a man in a film pointing and firing a gun unexpectedly, with the narrator stating: ‘Now here’s a test to show which of the three is most susceptible to shock or fright.

‘Taking a look at the graph, as we go through that again, Dr Marston and science shows that blondes are easiest to scare.’

William Moulton Marston, born in 1893, was the creator of the systolic blood pressure test. 

It went on to be used as part of the polygraph test, or the lie detector. 

His wife, Elizabeth, is believed to have suggested a link between emotion and blood pressure that led to the test being created. 

Dr Marston also happened to be a comic book writer, who went on to achieve fame for creating ‘Wonder Woman’.

He died from cancer in 1947, days before his 54th birthday. Elizabeth died aged 100 in 1993.

Dr Marston’s life was portrayed in the film Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, released in October this year.

Frantic haggling on Irish border ahead of PM Brussels trip

Theresa May‘s hopes of a Brexit breakthrough are hanging in the balance ahead of crunch talks in Brussels today – with a last-ditch effort to close the gap over the UK’s future border with Ireland.

Frantic haggling is taking place with Dublin over a deal that could allow trade discussions to get going.

But failure to hammer out a way forward on the issue could delay the process by months – and significantly raise the prospects of ‘no deal’ with the EU.

The Irish government is holding a meeting of its Cabinet, but deputy PM Simon Coveney made clear a joint text has yet to be signed off.  

The Prime Minister is travelling to Belgium ahead of a lunch with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.

She will then hold further talks with EU Council president Donald Tusk, who represents the interests of the remaining 27 member states. 

The PM was expected to telephone Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, whose last-minute threat to veto progress over border issues has thrown the careful choreography of a deal into chaos, early this morning. However, the call is not thought to have taken place.

A source said the chance of progressing to a possible deal was now only ‘50/50’ – which would be a huge blow to the Prime Minister.

The EU insists this is the last opportunity to reach an agreement that could be signed off at the bloc’s summit in 10 days’ time. The next gathering is not until well into next year.

But Downing Street sources have played down the idea today represents a hard deadline.

Mrs May had hoped to secure agreement on moving on to trade talks after persuading her cabinet to back an improved divorce payment worth up to £40billion to the EU. 

In return, she is demanding assurances that Brussels will agree a comprehensive trade deal.

But, despite round-the-clock talks this weekend, key differences remain between the two sides, particularly over the Irish border.

A Government spokesman said today’s meetings were now seen as no more than a ‘staging post’ ahead of a summit of EU leaders next week. 

The spokesman said there were ‘plenty of discussions still to go’ before a deal is struck.

Ministers are alarmed by the lack of a breakthrough. Some, including the Brexit Secretary David Davis, are warning privately that Mrs May will have to walk away if there is no agreement at next week’s EU summit.

The four key demands made by Dublin 

  • First: Information around the transition period of the UK exiting the EU.
  • Second: Agreement on rights associated with the Common Travel Area, and what the arrangements would be on this.
  • Third: A commitment that would see the Good Friday Agreement protected.
  • Fourth: A solid commitment to avoid a hard border between North and South – and that rules and regulations of the Single Market and Customs Union can’t diverge.

One source familiar with the talks said: ‘If we don’t make sufficient progress at this stage then the process is over.’

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt yesterday warned Eurosceptic MPs not to limit Mrs May’s room for manoeuvre. ‘The choice we face is not between this Brexit or that Brexit,’ he said.

‘If we don’t back Theresa May we will have no Brexit, and she is doing an unbelievably challenging job amazingly well.’

Mr Hunt’s intervention came as 30 Eurosceptics set down seven ‘red lines’ over Brexit.

The Leave Means Leave group said Mrs May should not make any payment to Brussels unless she received clear pledges in return, including a free trade deal and agreement that the UK would not have to accept any new EU regulations or European court rulings during a two-year transition period.

Signatories of the letter include former cabinet ministers Lord Lawson, John Redwood and Owen Paterson. They urge Mrs May to abandon the talks completely and go for a no-deal Brexit if Brussels refuses to agree terms next week.

But Mr Paterson dismissed the prospect of Eurosceptics voting against the government. ‘The fact is we have incredibly close relations with the Republic of Ireland, this trade is generally small, as I have just said it’s regular, and it can be handled with modern communication techniques, electronic invoicing etc.’ 

Today’s talks are designed to determine whether ‘sufficient progress’ has been made on three key issues to persuade the EU to move on to trade talks.

The issues at the centre of the row are the size of the divorce bill, the rights of EU citizens living in the UK and the status of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. 

The divorce bill is now seen as the most straightforward issue, with EU sources indicating Brussels is ready to accept Mrs May’s revised offer.

But differences remain on citizens’ rights and Northern Ireland.

The Prime Minister had hoped to offer a ‘compromise’ on citizens’ rights, which would give the European Court of Justice a minor, indirect role. But she has not yet persuaded her cabinet to sign it off.

What happens if Britain can’t strike a border deal with  

Three possible outcomes:

Best case: Dublin signs off on the joint EU-British ‘text’ meaning talks move on to Phase 2.

Possible case: Dublin cannot agree text but agreement is secured later this week. 

Worst case: Talks break down and it is pushed into the new year – throwing Theresa May’s Brexit timetable into chaos.

The deal would allow the UK’s Supreme Court to ask the ECJ for guidance in cases brought by EU citizens where there is no existing case law. EU citizens would lose the right to appeal directly to the ECJ – a key Brussels demand.

Nigel Farage was dragged into the divorce bill row yesterday because his £73,000-a-year MEP’s pension will be part-funded by Britain’s proposed £40billion payment. 

The UKIP leader rejected calls to give up the money, saying: ‘Why should my family suffer?’

Spartak Moscow warn fans ahead of Liverpool clash

  • Spartak Moscow have already been fined by UEFA for fan behaviour this term
  • Fans displayed ‘illicit banners’ during 1-1 Champions League draw with Liverpool
  • Two teams meet on Wednesday at Anfield with place in the last 16  on the line

Spartak Moscow have warned their fans to refrain from violent behaviour when they travel to support their club in a crucial Champions League encounter against Liverpool on Wednesday.

The Russian champions are hoping to avoid further UEFA sanctions after being punished by the European governing body for the behaviour of their fans earlier in the campaign.

‘Do not give in to provocations and don’t get involved in conflicts with locals, soccer fans and the country’s law enforcement,’ Spartak said in a statement on Monday.

‘We urge you to refrain from any other unlawful actions on the territory of the United Kingdom, including at sports venues and on routes used by fans.’

UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings against Spartak last month after fans set off fireworks during their 1-1 draw against Maribor in Moscow.

They were then fined 33,000 euros (£29,000) after fans displayed illicit banners, set off fireworks and blocked stairways during their 1-1 home draw against Liverpool in September.

Spartak were fined and banned from selling tickets to supporters for their next away match in Europe after a flare fired from the visiting supporters’ stand almost hit German referee Deniz Aytekin in their group opener at Slovenian champions Maribor in September.

Liverpool lead Group E on nine points and can reach the knockout stages with a draw against Spartak, who need to win the Anfield encounter to advance to the round of 16.

 

Father nearly died after throat infection triggered sepsis

A father-of-two who thought he was suffering from flu nearly died after his throat infection triggered sepsis.

Matt Cooper had a sore throat in September last year before suddenly developing other symptoms such as chronic diarrhoea and aching muscles.

The 43-year-old’s GP allegedly diagnosed him with just a virus but later that night he developed a rash and luckily rang 111 who called for an ambulance.

As the paramedics arrived the father collapsed and they discovered he had developed potentially fatal group A strep.

It was unclear whether the computer programmer would make it but after two weeks in hospital he miraculously survived.

Mr Cooper, from Long Ashton, in Bristol, said: ‘I knew I was unwell but didn’t think it was anything serious. I thought it was probably the flu.

‘I knew nothing about sepsis before it happened to me. I knew that I was sicker than I had ever been before but I still didn’t think I was seriously ill.

‘It was the middle of the night when I called 111 and I don’t really know what I was expecting or why I was calling. It didn’t occur to me to call 999. I didn’t think it was an emergency.

‘When the paramedic arrived he seemed to immediately recognise that there was something seriously wrong with me.’

When Victoria discovered that he was being rushed to hospital she frantically rang friends and family to come and look after her two children Benjamin, 7 and Olivia, 1.

She said: ‘I phoned the hospital to see if he was in a ward and they said, “he’s in resuscitation. If he makes it, he will be in intensive care.” I said, what do you mean “if”?

‘If there had been a small delay that would have cost him his life. He was so close. His skin turned really dark purple. He looked absolutely awful for days.’

Victoria was finally able to visit Mr Cooper in the hospital a few hours later that day and when she arrived he was still conscious but confused and struggling to breathe.

It was another four hours until they stabilised Mr Cooper and he was then taken to intensive care where he was put into a coma and dialysis lines were inserted. 

Victoria added: ‘All of the blood rushed to my head. I was just hysterical. They didn’t know if he was going to make it. I had the worst feeling in the pit of my stomach.

‘The next few hours were critical. It was just something that we never thought could happen.

‘I had no idea how common it is and how many people are affected by it. I thought that you got blood poisoning from a rusty nail or something. I had no idea it could mask itself as a virus.

‘A lot of people [with sepsis] think they have a really severe case of food poisoning or flu. It is hard to diagnose early on, you could be sent home and think that you’re okay.

‘Every single hour is critical, he was a couple of hours away from not making it. They showed us on a graph how close he was to losing his kidneys altogether and at that stage it would have been multiple organ failures. 

The father-of-two was in the Bristol Royal Infirmary hospital in intensive care for around two weeks and was initially put into a wheelchair until he was able to walk again with the help of rehabilitation.

Victoria said: ‘It has been a rollercoaster and in some ways a positive experience because everyone has been so kind.

‘We have been living day by day. We just don’t want anyone else to go through that. We want to increase awareness.

‘I have never seen him so ill before. It was an extremely tiring time looking after children and not knowing if we were going to lose him and how I would tell our son.

‘I just kept thinking, how am I ever going to tell them? It really was life and death those first few days just from something as simple as a throat infection.’

The deadly condition that affects more than 250,000 Brits a year 

Sepsis is a serious condition that is triggered by the body’s extreme response to an infection, as opposed to a severe infection itself. It affects more than 250,000 people in the UK each year.

It arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multiple organ failure, and death, especially if not recognized early and treated promptly.

In the early stages, the symptoms can be mistaken for flu, gastroenteritis and/or a chest infection.

Seek medical help urgently if you develop slurred speech, confusion, extreme shivering, muscle pain, passing no urine (in a day), severe breathlessness, it feels like you’re going to die, skin mottled or discoloured.

Group A strep (strep A) are often found on the surface of the skin and inside the throat. They are a common cause of infection in adults and children.

They can be spread in droplets in the coughs or sneezes of someone with an infection, or through direct contact with an infected person or contaminated object.

Flight attendant battling two cancers gets the all clear

A flight attendant who faced a battle to survive after she was diagnosed with two different cancers in the space of 10 days has spoken of her relief after being given he all clear.

Doaa Abouelseoud, 31, was told had stage three breast cancer and Hodgkin Lymphoma in June 2016.

After suffering several rounds of gruelling chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she was told by doctors that she had beaten both cancers. 

Doaa, from Cairo, Egypt, admits she struggled to cope with her diagnoses, becoming depressed and had lost hope that she would overcome the illnesses.

However Doaa then realised she needed to change her attitude and said feeling grateful for all she had and thinking positively helped her to stay alive. Her mantra became ‘every day is another chance’.

‘The hardest part was to survive and carry on. My advice would be to enjoy today because this is all what we have.’

Hodgkin lymphoma is an uncommon cancer that develops in the lymphatic system, which is a network of vessels and glands spread throughout your body.

Around 1,900 people are diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in the UK each year. It can develop at any age, but it mostly affects young adults in their early 20s and older adults over the age of 70. 

Most women diagnosed with breast cancer, the most common type of cancer in the UK, are over 50. 

SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER 

Most breast lumps aren’t cancerous, but it’s always best to have them checked by your doctor.

You should also see your GP if you notice any of the following:

  • A change in the size or shape of one or both breasts
  • Discharge from either of your nipples, which may be streaked with blood
  • A lump or swelling in either of your armpits
  • Dimpling on the skin of your breasts
  • A rash on or around your nipple
  • A change in the appearance of your nipple, such as becoming sunken into your breast

SIGNS OF HODGKIN LYMPHOMA

The most common symptom of Hodgkin lymphoma is a swelling in the neck, armpit or groin. The swelling is usually painless, although some people find that it aches. 

However, it’s highly unlikely that you have Hodgkin lymphoma if you have swollen lymph nodes, as these glands often swell as a response to infection. 

Other symptoms include:

  • Night sweats
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • A high temperature (fever)
  • A persistent cough or feeling of breathlessness
  • Persistent itching of the skin all over the body

Shock news

Doaa first realised something was wrong when she lost almost two stone (12 kg) over the space of three months.

‘I went to the doctors for a random check-up, when I found out that I had a mass (a small one) and the doctor said I shouldn’t be worried as many girls have this especially in their thirties,’ she said.

‘I had to have surgery to remove it; I was very concerned, especially since I have a family history of cancer. Once the surgery was over I thought that was it and I will be able to work and continue with my normal routine.

‘It was very difficult living with my stitches on my left breast with so many restrictions, as I never really get ill and it’s rare for me to even get the flu.’

But 10 days later, the oncologist called Doaa and told her the lump was not benign, but was a third stage breast cancer and that she would need another operation.

‘The stitches didn’t heal yet and it had to be opened again. Within just a week I had to undergo another surgery, then after the second time I had bad news again – they found another cancer; Hodgkin lymphoma.

‘So, I got diagnosed in ten days with two different types of cancer. And all of this a year before I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer.’

Positive outlook

Doaa says going through chemotherapy was ‘the best and worst thing’ that’s happened to her.

‘It was painful, it was aggressive, I lost my appetite for food, which made me lose 12kgs, my skin became dehydrated, my social life also was effected,’ Doaa said.

‘The best part about it was that I appreciated things that I took for granted, such as tasting the flavours of food; I lost that sense during the treatment.’

She said that she now looks on the bright side of life. 

‘I couldn’t think of anything after I got diagnosed as I was in shock. I had many questions in my head, I got depressed for two weeks until I realised that I shouldn’t be sad or depressed.

‘I am still alive, and every day is another chance; also, science and technology had improved a lot and my oncologist and chemotherapy doctors were very reassuring.

‘I found out that I was so lucky to have been diagnosed and have had the surgeries done, since some other people can’t afford it or they don’t even know that they have cancer.  

‘My best friend Fatima has been the biggest supporter during the worst times and she was always there; she’d have done anything to stay next to me and never made me feel that I was ill or tired or too heavy.

‘During the recovery process I had to stop drinking and smoking, then I started a new diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

‘I also started to exercise more and go for a walk by the beach, but most of all I removed all the negativity from my mind and my heart which helped me a lot to recover. I also stayed away from negative people.’
