Ayoze Perez admits he is “proud” that his exquisite lob against Leicester City has been compared with Philippe Albert’s iconic chip. Albert’s goal capped off Newcastle United’s famous 5-0 victory over Manchester United in October 1996, which left Peter Schmeichel embarrassed, is arguably the most iconic strike in the Magpies’ history. It summed up the attacking, free-flowing style of Kevin Keegan’s ‘Entertainers’ side, given that a centre-back was able to score such a spectacular goal. But earlier this month, Perez netted a lob of his own during the 2-1 victory at Leicester - and the Spaniard chipped Kasper Schmeichel, the son of Man United legend Peter, in the process. Given that Perez’s strike at the King Power Stadium virtually guaranteed United’s top-flight status, and due to the fact he chipped Schmeichel Jnr too, that goal also looks set to take a special place in Newcastle’s history - even if it will never … [Read more...] about Perez: ‘Maybe fans will talk about my Leicester lob in 20 years’

Britain could be back in the European Union in a generation if it is reformed, a senior Cabinet minister has hinted. David Lidington said he did not believe the result of the referendum would be reversed but suggested the EU would not look the same in 20 years’ time. The bloc is likely to be configured differently and that “is something that future parliaments, future generations, will have to consider”, the Cabinet Office Minister said. Mr Lidington, a former Europe minister who campaigned for Remain, told The Daily Telegraph: “I think that the EU itself is going to change, and I think it is almost inevitable that the dynamic of the single currency is going to drive at least some of the current members of the EU towards much closer economic and, to a degree, political integration in the future. “And I can’t see the UK wanting to go back into that sort of arrangement. “But we may be looking in a generation’s time at an EU … [Read more...] about Britain could rejoin EU in 20 years, senior minister hints
