What a great day for the Women's Super League thanks to a record-breaking 47,367 in the Emirates for Arsenal's north London derby win over Tottenham. Arsenal dominated from start to finish, proving their superiority thanks to two goals from Miedema while Mead and Rafaelle scored the others. 73 mins: Arsenal's 12th corner (Spurs had none) is played quickly and safely, much to the visitors' relief. Blackstenius collects the ball on the left, cutting in on her right foot but her shot goes wide of the edge. Mead replaced by Hurtig for Arsenal. Arsenal's Beth Mead applauds fans as she is substituted. 90 mins: Karczewska shoots from 30 yards but it goes well over. 89 mins: Fans flock out to beat the traffic/queues at the various stations nearby. 87 mins: Wubben-Moy and Maanum for Little and Rafaelle for Arsenal. 85 mins: Not a single Spurs player has their shirt tucked in I suppose as they have to advertise the sponsor which is at the base of the spine. 83 mins: Nobbs breaks into space but doesn't have the pace to put it forward, allowing Spurs to come back in numbers and intercept a cross. 81 mins: Williamson is in possession after delaying her pass with limited opportunities in front of her, possibly because Arsenal are slowing the pace too much. Spurs' break comes to nothing as a long pass is sent over the head of an offside Neville. 79 mins: Neville sends in a good cross for Spurs, only for Petzelberger to nudge the ball with her hands instead of her head before rattling into a defender. A short corner is well executed and Catley lobs the cross into the six yard box where Miedema waits to nod home.

Spence tries to clear a cross into the box but misses her hoof and sends it back towards her own goal. 65 min: Arsenal simply smash at the back and Spurs are unable to put pressure on them despite their fresh legs. 63 mins: Neville is cautioned for coming slightly late to Mead, much to the defender's irritation. Spurs Subs: Karczewska, Petzelberger and James for Spence, Simon and Cho. 61 minutes: The referee stops the game because Bartrip is bleeding from her mouth.

Today there are 47,367 in the Emirates. 53 mins: An Arsenal free-kick is swung into the box and cleared, but Zadorsky remains on the deck and requires treatment. 51 mins: A couple of early fouls from Spurs as they try to deal with Arsenal's attacking threat. 49 mins: Bizet collects a poor pass from McCabe but she has no one in a white shirt to give it to and the Spurs break quickly collapses. Spurs players are certainly not on the same wavelength. 47 mins: We start as we landed on the edge of the Spurs box with Arsenal. Spurs are looking to bid more upside by pushing Spence further up front. The club have sold more than 52,000 tickets for tonight's game, according to Arsenal boss Vinai Venkatesham.

She tries a cross but it's sent right back to her, allowing Mead to take a touch and roll the ball into the corner. A clever finish from Beth Mead puts the home side ahead.

Spurs don't look like they can score, so claiming two to get back in the game seems like a hell of a task. 43 mins: Mead gets past the defense but the ball saves, forcing the England international to hold it up and give a pass to Miedema but her shot is blocked. 41 mins: A ball is shoved into Miedema's box but Zadorsky comes flying over to intercept and score a goal-kick, smacking the ball away from the Dutch striker. 39 minutes: Bizet makes Zinsberger a little harder than his last effort. Unfortunately, her left shot from 20 meters is still pretty tame, so the goalkeeper slowly falls onto the ball. At the other end, a corner is cleared and McCabe sends the ball back into the box to find an unmarked foord, but her header just misses. 37 mins: Spence makes a nice challenge to win the ball in front of Walti, but the Arsenal midfielder doesn't get up after catching his hip on the way down. 23 mins: Passing stats say Arsenal had 70% possession. Arsenal's Caitlin Foord pushes forward. Spurs have a shot thanks to Bizet, who spots Zinsberger from their line and tries from 35 yards, but he's weak and misses the target, allowing the keeper to calmly collect the slow-bouncing ball. 35 mins: Catley is allowed to stroll down the left unchallenged and then swing a dangerous cross into the six-yard box. Neville reads the danger and clears it up to a teammate. I really have no idea what Tottenham are trying to achieve with right-back. 33 mins: Foord escapes on the left but her shot is blocked. The loose ball reaches Wienroither, who slips rather than fire a shot. 31 mins: Arsenal will be disappointed they haven't tested the keeper since their first goal given how much possession they've enjoyed. Another fine move, aided by the space available down the left, sees McCabe drag the ball back to Little in the middle, she takes a touch but then pulls her shot wide from 10 yards. 29 mins: Arsenal's sixth corner of the afternoon is curled in by Catley but once again a Spurs head is first on the cross. 25 mins: Spurs are again expropriated in a dangerous area, allowing Mead to get the ball into the box but Neville reads the danger and turns it back. 21 mins: McCabe sprints into space, which Arsenal constantly delivers down the left. She pulls back a cross but it is cleared. Spurs are refusing to address the issues they face at right-back and it will soon cost them. 19 mins: Spurs are held in a minute while Arsenal try to find a way through but the visitors are keeping them out for now. Here's the goal... What a start in the NLD! 🤩— Arsenal Women (@ArsenalWFC) Sep 24, 2022, 17 mins: McCabe scolds Neville after the Spurs defender slapped her on the ankles. Looks like there's still a lot of liveliness ahead. 15 minutes: Arsenal are certainly up in the early stages. To add to the goal, they spend a lot of time in the Spurs half and the visitors are just trying to keep them in check. 13 mins: Catley swings into a corner from the right but a Spurs head gets there first to clear. 11 mins: There seems to be a lot of freedom within the Spurs structure. It's looking a bit disjointed at the moment, but maybe they'll settle into the match. 9 mins: Spurs have two players down the left flank but Bizet fails to spot them and instead moves to the right, leading to a deep cross from Turner that's easily cleared. 7 mins: Foord escapes down the left, takes control of the ball and puts it in the path of Miedema, who picks McCabe to have a shot on goal, but her drive always goes by. Spurs need to sort things out on their right side because they struggle to deal with Arsenal on that side. 4 mins: Walti dispossesses a Spurs player on the edge of the box and drives into the area, pulling the ball back to Mead, who takes a touch and has an effort on goal but her attempt is deflected wide. A visitor record is to be broken. Photo: Clive Rose/Getty Images Photo: Clive Rose/Getty Images Photo: Clive Rose/Getty Images Photo: Jacques Feeney/Offside/Getty Images 2 minutes: Already some promising games from both sides. Arsenal and Spurs try to move the ball quickly on a bowling green bathed in sunshine. Tottenham head coach Rehanne Skinner: "I think the biggest thing for us is to continue to perform to close that gap [with Arsenal]. "We're just really excited about the opportunity, you see the fans here today. We want to make it difficult for everyone we play against, including Arsenal.” An exciting, record-breaking day lies ahead. This north London derby will draw at least 51,000 people across the Emirates, making it the highest attendance at a Women's Super League game. The influence of the Euros lingers in England - it just goes to show what can happen when a national team tries to score goals. The previous record was set at Tottenham in 2019. Excitingly, both teams have 100 percent records going into the derby. Arsenal beat Brighton a little last weekend in a 4-0 win. Spurs, on the other hand, had a trickier task at Leicester, beating their opponents 2-1. Arsenal are understandably the favorites for this clash, but Spurs are certainly a side that are improving year by year and this will be an early indication of that be where they currently are.

Meet the Brazilian team aiming for their sixth world title in Qatar

Brazil went down in football history as five-time world champions, but have not lifted the famous trophy since 2002. Tite's side are considered favorites in Qatar this winter. (Author: Gardener)

QatarBrazil went down in football history as five-time world champions, but have not lifted the famous trophy since 2002. The Selecao have only made it past the quarter-finals in one of the last four World Cups. In 2014, Germany lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals on home soil. However, with less than two months to go before this year's tournament in Qatar begins, Brazil have emerged as favorites to go all the way and add a sixth star above their badge. Brazil emerged as favorites to win the World Cup in Qatar this winter. Ahead of next week's Samba Boys friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia, Sportsmail takes a look at what the current squad has to offer. Times have changed since Brazil last won the World Cup in 2002, when 13 of the 23-man squad played their club football in their home country and none played in the Premier League. Only three of the 26-man squad for this month's friendlies play in Brazil, while 12 are on the books of English clubs. Four members of the current squad joined the Premier League this summer - Manchester United duo Casemiro and Antony, West Ham midfielder Lucas Paqueta and Nottingham Forest full-back Renan Lodi. Casemiro and Antony will reinforce Brazil's representation in the Premier League this summer. Representation in the Premier League runs through the entire team. Ederson and Alisson are battling for the No1, Thiago Silva is still strong in defense at 37, Fabinho, Fred and Bruno Guimaraes can form a midfield three and Richarlison and Roberto Firmino offer options up front. There are also the England based players who have not been selected this month but could still be at the World Cup. Arsenal's three Gabriels - Jesus, Martinelli and Magalhaes - have been surprisingly left out of the squad, while Liverpool loanee Arthur, Tottenham full-back Emerson Royal and Aston Villa's Philippe Coutinho will all be hoping for recalls. Gone are the days of Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Rivaldo, but Brazil have no shortage of attacking quality in their squad. No fewer than nine strikers have been selected by Tite for this month's two friendlies. Roberto Firmino, Matheus Cunha, Richarlison and Pedro will be looking to make their claim this month in Gabriel Jesus' surprise absence. Neymar is guaranteed to be one of those places far out, but on the other hand, Tite has a selection dilemma thanks to the emergence of a plethora of young stars in recent years. Vinicius Junior, Antony and Rodrygo are all 22 years or younger and offer a lot of exciting potential. It's a sign of the wealth of talent available that Jesus - who has scored four goals in his first seven league games for Arsenal - has not been included in the squad this month as Tite wants to take a closer look at more fringe players. The Gunners star is still expected to be picked for the World Cup, but to put it this way - Gareth Southgate wouldn't even have considered dropping Harry Kane two months before the tournament so he could give Ollie Watkins and Patrick Bamford chances could give. With FIFA increasing squad capacity for Qatar from 23 to 26 players, the likelihood seems pretty high that Tite will use this to fill his squad with attackers. Ever since Neymar arrived at Santos as an exciting teenager, Brazil have been hoping for the forward's sixth World Cup title. Neymar was the poster child of the World Cup when Brazil hosted the tournament in 2014 and he got off to a flying start - scoring twice in the opening game against Croatia before scoring another two in the final group game against Cameroon. But disaster struck in the closing minutes of the quarter-final against Colombia when he fractured his vertebrae in a tackle with Juan Zaniga. He was missed more than could have been imagined in the semifinals as Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany. Neymar suffered a fractured vertebra in the 2014 World Cup Quarterfinals against Colombia. In Russia, the forward scored twice four years later, but his tournament is perhaps better remembered for his theatrical acting skills - it was revealed that he spent a total of 14 minutes on the ground in Brazil's five games. Brazil won the Copa America in 2019 but Neymar missed the entire tournament through injury so his personal quest for glory continues in earnest; especially after losing the Copa America final on home soil last year. This may not be Neymar's last World Cup - he will be 34 when the tournament takes place in 2026 - but he certainly won't be at the same level playing in the United States, Canada and Mexico. With 11 goals and 8 assists in 11 games for PSG, Brazil's big hope started in form at just the right time. The 30-year-old is still in the hunt for a major international title and is in red-hot form. No other coach in Qatar will be able to claim to have two better goalkeepers in their squad than Tite, who has the unenviable decision to choose between Alisson and Ederson for the No 1 shirt. Both could easily claim to be the best goalkeepers in the world and they have been crucial parts of the top two teams in the Premier League for the last four years. Liverpool's Alisson and Manchester City's Ederson offer Brazil two world-class options in goal Alisson played most in World Cup qualifiers for Brazil and was historically favoured. At last summer's Copa America, Tite rotated between all three goalkeepers in his squad. Ederson played four games (including quarterfinals, semifinals and finals), Alisson played twice and even Weverton, third pick, was handed the gloves in a group match. Brazil perhaps owe their title as World Cup favorites to their remarkable qualifying campaign. Tite's side went 17 games unbeaten, won 14 and drew three to set a new record 45 points in South America qualifying. They scored 40 goals and scored four or more goals in a game six times. They also had a home game against Argentina ahead of them. Ahead of this month's friendlies, Brazil are unbeaten in their last 13 games since losing to Argentina in the Copa America final last year. Nobody travels to Qatar in better shape. Brazil were unbeaten in their 17 World Cup qualifiers, winning 14 and drawing three. Between 1998 and 2016, six different coaches were given the role (including twice Luiz Felipe Scolari and Dunga) and most stayed in the role for no more than two years. The 61-year-old has held the job since 2016 but has confirmed he will step down after the World Cup. He will leave as the longest-serving manager in the country's history. Tite has inherited a squad that had just been eliminated from the group stage of the Copa America and has nurtured a new generation of Brazilian talent with relative success. Tite, 61, will step down as coach after the World Cup after serving six years. Eliminating Belgium in the World Cup quarter-finals four years ago was undoubtedly disappointing, but Brazil then won the Copa America the following year and reached the final again in 2021. Tite's win rate as a coach currently stands at 75.7%, the best of any Selecao manager since Scolari's first tenure in the early 2000s, when he won the World Cup. "I've won everything in my career and all that's left is the World Cup," Tite told Brazilian broadcaster SporTV in February.


Harry Maguire handed the lifeline to England - we'll see if he's capable of it

Harry Maguire handed the lifeline to England - we'll see if he's capable of it (Author: Gardener)

Harry MaguireThe less he plays, the harder he is to ignore - a condition that only affects the highest profile players and never again this week for Harry Maguire, English football's lost ship, now recognizable in the fog and recalled by a manager who never lost faith. The former Manchester United captain, who has not featured in his club's starting XI since the Brentford disaster on August 13, is back and likely to start for England in the Nations League against Italy. This has been a devastating year for Maguire on the pitch and Southgate knows that and sees something worth saving, at least for now. "If we thought there were experienced players willing to come in and play at a level above him, there would be a different consideration and in some positions there would be a different level of competition in that way," Southgate said. Maguire was, Southgate said, "our most dominant air centre-back". But with a team of three in defence, it looks like Southgate will pick Maguire ahead of Marc Guehi and also Fikayo Tomori, for whom San Siro is a home ground. "He [Maguire] and John are really incredible with the ball," Southgate said, "how much pressure they've taken for the team in tournaments we've been in... because we don't always have that central midfielder who can go through that." Game. That means there's a lot of pressure on our centre-backs to use the ball well and those two are as good as anyone else in world football." 'undercooked' Saracens stars despite concerns they would play in the second-tier league for the 2020-21 season. "With the Saracens players, he [Jones] felt like they were his best players and even though they were undercooked, they would still be better than players who weren't at the level," Southgate said. "So I don't think there are a lot of players who aren't at the level right now to go in and play. You want your best players to play regularly so they are in a good place physically and mentally. But he [Maguire] is an important player for us. I think it's important to support our best players.” Those Saracens players were at least getting playing time, it was pointed out. Maguire has started just one game since Brentford's Europa League loss to Real Sociedad on September 8, playing just 10 minutes of Premier League football in that time. "Well they [Saracens internationals] didn't play at the level," Southgate said. "Physically, rugby differs from football in that the level in the league is lower than the international [standard] and when you're relegated in the league it's not really a test of your better players. So our players will actually work physically every day with top players and they've played European football before.” Is Harry Maguire capable of leading England's defense under pressure? In Maguire's defense, the one Nations League game he did not start in last June was the last, most damaging, 4-0 loss to Hungary, for which he played as a substitute for the last five minutes. Southgate hinted he had been forced to compromise for those four games and, without going into detail, seemed more determined than ever to assert himself. "Whatever reputation I have, I'll put it there," he said with a rueful smile, nodding to the hostility he met at Molineux in the second game. "I think you always have to base your judgment and we think he's an important player." There are other issues surrounding England's defense that go beyond even Maguire. For the first two Nations League games, against Hungary in Budapest and Germany in Munich, Southgate chose a three-man defence. With England failing to impress, he switched to a four for the Molineux games against Italy and Hungary and somehow things got worse. Now, with the prospect of England's first international relegation in 150 years, if only in the Nations League, he needs to find something to trust. Perhaps the connection is a little stronger with a manager who was himself a centre-back and who also felt the most implacable kind of anger the England side can unleash on the English public. Aside from those two games against Italy and then Germany on Monday at Wembley, there is still the ocean to navigate for Maguire over the next two months of club football to get into the World Cup squad in November.

Krystian Bielik reveals return to Birmingham City and departure from Derby County

The latest Birmingham City news and views from BirminghamLive, as Krystian Bielik declares his determination to make Qatar 2022 (Author: Gardener)

Krystian BielikKrystian Bielik has revealed Birmingham City's willingness to give him a platform for his World Cup ambitions was key to his return to St Andrew's in the summer. The 24-year-old, who is working back from a minor knee injury in the summer, has started the last three games and completed the first 90 minutes since April's 0-0 draw with Coventry City. The Blues had to be patient with the Bielik, waiting more than a month to see him on the field, but they seem to have been rewarded as the Pole has impressed everyone with his composure on the ball and the quality of his distribution has John immediately boosted Eustace's side. READ: Agents, Everton and the steadfast players at Birmingham City - what happened to Gary Rowett's 21 signings at the training ground - but he's focused on returning to international duty in Qatar in November 2022. All of this is a far cry from the disappointments of last season, when parent club Derby County were relegated to League One and left questions about their chances at the tournament. Explaining his loan to Blues, he said: "We were relegated, we know why we were relegated because of the minus 21 deduction. “The most important thing is my personal career and my progress because I've lost so much time, I'm 24, I want to play at a higher level than League One. I never hid it, I always spoke openly about it. “Secondly, the most important thing is the national coach [Czesław Michniewicz], he also said it out loud, he wants me to play at a higher level than League One. He said League One wasn't good enough for him to call me up for the World Cup. I knew he wasn't chatting, I knew I had to find a club in the league and play at a certain level to have a chance of going to the World Cup. Blues came for Bielik having previously loaned him out as an Arsenal youngster in the ill-fated 2017 season. “When I was here five years ago I was a 19-year-old boy playing for Birmingham, it wasn't the best season for Birmingham. I came when Gianfranco Zola was here and he wanted to play football, play from behind and I was a central defender back then who wasn't afraid to play from behind. "I am now a 24-year-old man - after some health problems. But I'm back now and Birmingham City helped me. Now when I came to Birmingham I had a small mechanical problem with my other knee. The gaffer here, all the medical staff and the whole club gave me the opportunity to borrow, come here, get fit and get ready. "I'm really glad they gave me this time because now I can play for you guys and achieve things and play games. I'm really happy because the gaffer is very open, he said, "You'll get your time on the court." They know this is a huge tournament for me and they want me to go there and play. “So I see the whole club wants good things for me to actually get there and achieve the big things. I can't wait for the upcoming games because I know this is just the beginning. "This is a long season, the championship with the most games, I have to be ready and my goal is to play like 35 games this season to show everyone that Krystian is back and can easily play a full season. He suffered a serious knee injury while playing for Derby's Under 23s in January 2020. "If you had done two ACLs in your one knee. "Obviously, the further you go through these types of injuries, the more moments of doubt come: 'Will my knee be okay or not?' I've had those days, but as you can see I'm playing again, playing with a smile in the face and I don't think about the injuries I've had in the past. I'm just thinking about the future, the upcoming games. “I have a huge, huge tournament in November where I want to be fit, I want to be healthy because I know when I'm going to be fit and healthy I'm going to play and that might change my situation a little bit. First for Birmingham, playing every single game, getting fitter, getting stronger to be ready for a huge tournament for my country and I think I'll be ready for that.

350,000Everton loan star Conor Coady has spoken of his pride at working with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold as the trio attempt to raise £350,000 for young people at a star-studded gala. Coady is one of the driving forces behind the Football for Change campaign, led by Carragher and backed by a host of stars and Reds full-back Alexander-Arnold, which aims to help young people in disadvantaged areas. Football for Change pulls out all the stops with a spectacular event at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Thursday, with Noel Gallagher set to headline and Vernon Kay hosting the evening. But although Coady helped organize the A-list party, he will miss it as he prepares for Friday night's England v Italy game and he admits his "wife is gutted". Football for Change was launched last year by Jamie Carragher, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Coady and Dominic Calvert-Lewin to help young people from socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds build a better future Bellingham, Steven Gerrard, Anthony Gordon , Lucas Moura, Peter Crouch and Alan Shearer. The campaign has also teamed up with Noel Gallagher ahead of a spectacular fundraiser in Manchester next week. Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Carragher, Co-Chair of the FFC, was a driving force behind the charitable crusade which aims to lift young people from disadvantaged backgrounds out of poverty with life-changing education and employment opportunities.Sir Rod Stewart is patron of the initiative.Football For Change has raised £350,000 since it started last November and aims to match that at next week's star-studded fundraiser.Noel Gallagher is the headliner with his High Flying Birds and Melanie Cand Emeli Sande is also contributing individual sets for entertainment. Business leaders and celebrities will attend the event sponsored by Swinton Insurance. Nonetheless, Coady hopes the money raised at the event will bring Football for Change's total fund to more than £700,000, which will be used to help young people in disadvantaged areas find employment and education. "As footballers, we have an opportunity to help people and we do our best to do that," Coady told Sportsmail, which supports Football for Change. “I was very lucky growing up, I had a fantastic family behind me, I wanted to play football and was lucky enough to do that, but some people don't get that chance. Football for Change has so many people from all backgrounds trying to push and help.” While Coady, Carragher and Alexander-Arnold are all from Merseyside, the campaign commanders support nationwide. Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin (born in Sheffield), former Manchester United and England full-back Gary Neville (Greater Manchester) are both on board, while Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham (Stourbridge) are a backer along with Aston Villa are boss Steven Gerrard and England's Euro 2022 winners Beth Mead (Whitby) and Toni Duggan (Liverpool), as well as Spurs' Lucas Moura and MOTD experts Alan Shearer, Peter Crouch and Gary Lineker. Gallagher, a die-hard Manchester City fan, will star at the swanky party with his High Flying Birds, while Melanie C and Emeli Sande will entertain with bespoke sets. Money-can't-buy lots were donated to a live auction by David Beckham, Formula 1, Robbie Williams, Calvin Harris and BT Sport. "My wife is a bit disappointed if I'm honest because it's going to be a lively night but I'm off with the England boys," Coady joked. But the 29-year-old, who hails from St Helens, is dead serious about taking the campaign to new heights. “I really want to help people and if I have the opportunity I will do my best. “We try our best to help young disadvantaged people to have a better life. Nationwide, 711,000 young people aged 16 to 24 are currently in this situation with the justified fear that the cost of living crisis and an economic downturn will make life even more difficult. Among 16-17 year olds, the latest national NEET figure is 64,720, of which 1,950 live in the Liverpool City area. Two hundred of these youths have been identified in Sefton, the area where Carragher grew up. The first activities to be funded by Football for Change include a life-changing project for 40 young people who traveled to the United States for a sports and education program, a training program for homeless youth, and a new youth education center in Bootle. Liverpool has the second-highest proportion of young people without education and employment of any city in the country, just behind Birmingham, which currently claims the dubious honor. Carragher told Sportsmail last week that he is realistic about the magnitude of the challenge and the fact that there are deep-rooted issues that he and the football community will find difficult to resolve. Despite this, Football For Change is committed to helping those it can. The players are lucky, I've been lucky, the revenue that's coming in, I'm not complaining, they deserve it, but I think it's important that people in our position give back to help people in their own communities. "We had a lot of players wanting to get involved, which is healthy." Disadvantaged children - who are entitled to free school meals or childcare - regularly achieve lower grades at the GCSE and often grow up with more limited life chances. "You feel the world is against you and other people are happier and happier," said Alexander-Arnold, co-organiser and Liverpool right-back, who was born and raised in the West Derby area of ​​Liverpool. "You see so much deprivation in the city, be it from homes, shelter, education," added Alexander Arnold, 23, who has already played 234 games for Liverpool and 17 for England after being spotted by Anfield club in old age was six. "Growing up I always felt that if I had the opportunity to help others and give as much as possible to others it would be great and that's the platform I have now and it's important for me to use them properly way.'


Derby County answered a big question with Liam Rosenior's decision and Paul Warne's pursuit

The latest Derby County news from DerbyshireLive brings commentary from Rams writer Leigh Curtis on the decision to replace Liam Rosenior with Paul Warne as the Rotherham United boss gets closer to a move to Pride Park (Author: Gardener)

Derby CountyWarne is set to become new Rams manager Liam Rosenior's final act as the Derby County interim manager was due to march to the South Stand to celebrate with fans after beating Wycombe. That win moved Derby to seventh in the league table as they approached the international break in a solid position. That led many to believe it was about time Rosenior spelled out the word interim and made the manager's job permanent. Read more: Derby next manager news LIVE: Paul Warne approach and what next for Rosenior Read more: Derby sent Rotherham response after Warne approach after a hectic summer. Their home form has been impressive with six wins out of seven at Pride Park, proving a solid foundation for League One life. However, given the good results at home, they have yet to find a cure for their long-standing motion sickness. Derby have only won three away games in their last 36 league games and that has yet to be rectified this season. In particular, the defeat against Lincoln City last Tuesday fell far short of the expectations of such a talented team. You can't rely solely on your home form to win promotion and that was perhaps a key factor in the decision to look for a coach with a proven track record. Pursuing Rotherham United manager Paul Warne therefore makes perfect sense given he has three League One promotions on his resume. Nobody can accuse Rosenior of doing a bad job. For someone new to the dugout, he has all the qualities that make him a good manager. A change comes at least at a time when Derby are in the middle of an international break to allow the dust to settle before the league campaign resumes against Cambridge next month. Assuming the move is completed quickly, it will give Warne some time to adjust to a life-changing opportunity. A club steeped in history, Derby have long had their sights set on returning to the top of English football. With that comes the weight of expectation he won't have experienced at Rotherham, a club who are batting above their weight in the Championship. People will say he's also been relegated three times, but you have to keep in mind that he won't be able to match the purchasing power of most teams in the second division. And yet he's guided them to eighth in the standings this season, which has only added to his reputation as one of the brightest young managers in the Football League.

Nadine Dorries resigns and returns to the back benches - how it happened

Latest updates: The culture secretary will not serve in Truss's cabinet and is expected to be knighted by Boris Johnson (Author: Gardener)

Nadine DorriesDorries resigns ahead of cabinet reshuffle A third of people have little or no faith in Truss to weather the cost of living crisis, a poll suggests the UK economy is on the brink of recession as Truss takes over, figures show Truss is having 57.4% of the vote was elected - a narrower margin than any previous Tory leader elected by members Truss promises "delivery for our country" as she says she expects the next general election in 2024Liz Truss says it is an honor to be elected and pays tribute to Boris Johnson , says Committee Treasurer 1922 Liz Truss, who is said to be planning a freeze on the energy bill after her expected election as n New Tory leader and next Prime Minister Dorries to resign ahead of reshuffle as culture minister Nadine Dorries will step down and return to the backbenches when Liz Truss becomes Prime Minister on Tuesday becomes. Truss, the new leader of the Conservative Party, is said to have offered Dorries the option of staying on in the role, in a story first reported by Mail Plus. The outgoing Prime Minister is expected to receive a peerage after leaving office. Liz Truss had offered her the option to remain at her post if she wanted, but Ms Dorries, who has been a vocal supporter during her leadership campaign, has opted to return to the back benches. A friend said last night: "Nadine has been agonizing over this as she supports Liz 100 per cent. But she has decided now is the right time to leave Cabinet.” She is expected to be given a peerage when Boris Johnson leaves office, which will trigger a by-election in the Mid Bedfordshire constituency, which she since 2005 , who becomes prime minister tomorrow, could announce support for household energy bills as early as Thursday, it has been reported. She is also due to give a speech on the steps of No Downing Street on Tuesday afternoon, setting out her vision for her position as Prime Minister. The Telegraph understands Ms Truss could freeze energy bills for all households until 2024 among measures to tackle the cost of living crisis, due to be unveiled this week Britain's next PMLiz Truss will become Britain's next prime minister on Tuesday and will immediately become a cabinet of loyalist MPs appoint as their government begins a race against time to come up with plans to deal with the costs of livi ng emergency. She will become Britain's fourth Tory Prime Minister in six years after beating Rishi Sunak in the fiercely contested Conservative leadership contest launched after Tory MPs ousted Boris Johnson during the worst economic crisis in a generation by an overwhelming entry list navigate. She faces an uphill battle to win over Tory MPs as she inherits a deeply divided party that is lagging in the polls and some mutinous backbenchers are said to be already plotting their demise. Truss won 81,326 votes (57.4%) from Tory members to the former chancellor's 60,399 (42.6%), a narrower victory than many had expected on behalf of the disputed Libyan Parliament and a company that owns the largest PSA Deal of the pandemic via the VIP fast lane has been deployed to the UK government. Mark Fullbrook, an ally of Boris Johnson's former strategist Lynton Crosby, is expected to join Downing Street as Truss' chief of staff after working on her campaign this summer. The political adviser launched his own company, Fullbrook Strategies, this spring and has since lobbied the UK government. His clients have included the Libyan House of Representatives, which has twice attempted to overthrow the United Nations-installed government of unity in Tripoli, and Sante Global, formerly Unispace Health, which won a £680million PSA contract in 2020. Last elected to parliament in 2014, seen by some as blocking democratic elections in Libya and allied with the rival government in the east of the country, which is seeking recognition from the UK and others, the UK diplomatic mission in Libya issued a message on her Twitter account, saying she continues to recognize the interim government of national unity "as the authority charged with leading Libya to elections and does not advocate the establishment of parallel governments or institutions." Liz Truss likely chief of staff has campaigned for the government on behalf of the Libyan parliament Education Secretary James Cleverly has dismissed suggestions Liz Truss will bring the Conservatives to th e right. Cleverly, who is tipped to be the next foreign secretary, told Channel 4 News: I have heard this accusation in the formation of every government headed by a Conservative. Liz will focus on the growing economy, she will make sure we support people who need help both domestically and internationally, she will work with countries around the world who believe in freedom and openness. That seems to me to be a political agenda that everyone should be able to advocate for. Wisely, he said the government would continue to support Ukraine despite the war's impact on energy prices. "If we send a signal to the world that we are ready to accept pressure to defeat democracy, then all the worries we are currently experiencing will fade into insignificance," he said. “We absolutely have to stand by our commitment to Ukraine. French President Emmanuel Macron has congratulated Liz Truss on her victory in the battle to become Britain's next prime minister, declaring that "the British nation is our ally". the French leader is "friend or foe". "Congratulations to Liz Truss on her election," Macron tweeted. “The British people are our friend, the British nation is our ally. Let's continue to work together to defend our common interests.” Congratulations to Liz Truss on her election. Conservative MP Christopher Chope has been urged to join the committee investigating claims that Boris Johnson misled Parliament about his knowledge of law-breaking parties in Covid, sources have told the Guardian. Chope would replace Laura Farris, who announced over the summer that she was stepping down from the panel that reviews complaints about MPs' conduct. The nomination would need to be passed by the Commons for him to be appointed to the Privileges Committee. Normally, the vote is conducted as a "nod or nothing" - meaning that if there was a dissenting vote, it would fall. Chope's appointment is likely to prove controversial given his history of barring laws, including attempts to ban "upskirting." A source said he was familiar with parliamentary procedures. Chope also served on the privileges committee for two years from October 2017 to November 2019. The government did not respond to a request for comment. The Tory MP known for blocking legislation tipped to join the Partygate inquiry Nigel Adams, who has served as Foreign Secretary since 2021 without a portfolio in the Cabinet Office, is the youngest Tory man to stand after Liz Truss was elected Party leader resigns from government. In a letter of resignation to outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Adams said "there was never a dull moment" and that he was "honored" to have Johnson as a friend to the letter.
