have that and the action from Chelsea 's semi`final in Madrid.

:00:00.:00:00.

That is coming up in 15 minutes. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:00:00.:00:17.

to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me are Anne

:00:18.:00:21.

Ashworth, assistant editor of The Times and David Davies, media

:00:22.:00:23.

commentator and former executive director of the FA. Let's have a

:00:24.:00:32.

look at some of the front pages. The Metro's just one of many papers

:00:33.:00:35.

featuring the former Manchester United manager David Moyes ` it says

:00:36.:00:39.

Dutchman Louis Van Gaal may be his eventual replacement.

:00:40.:00:43.

The Telegraph highlights comments from the Attorney General Dominic

:00:44.:00:46.

Grieve who says Christians in Britain are afraid to express their

:00:47.:00:49.

beliefs because they are "turned off" by the rise of religious

:00:50.:00:53.

fundamentalism. The Guardian says Vince Cable has

:00:54.:00:56.

warned Britain's boardrooms to crack down on executive bonuses to help

:00:57.:01:02.

restore public trust. The Mail carries a story that

:01:03.:01:05.

customs officials will be prevented from asking EU Nationals entering

:01:06.:01:07.

the country how long they intend to stay here.

:01:08.:01:10.

The Times leads on figures which show that serious violent crime in

:01:11.:01:14.

the UK has fallen by 50% in adecade and puts it down to a decline in

:01:15.:01:20.

binge drinking. There's a new theory in the search

:01:21.:01:23.

for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the Express, which

:01:24.:01:25.

claims investigators are exploring the possibility that it may have

:01:26.:01:31.

crashed on land. And finally, the Independent reports

:01:32.:01:35.

that Labour is to set up an "attack unit" ahead of the next election to

:01:36.:01:37.

counter opposition attempts to discredit Ed Miliband.

:01:38.:01:49.

We are going to start with the Guardian. A number of people on

:01:50.:01:53.

Twitter have been saying this story is overblown. Why is everyone

:01:54.:01:58.

leading wicket? Manchester United is the biggest player in our national

:01:59.:02:03.

sport and it is one of England's biggest brands globally. If this was

:02:04.:02:07.

Rolls Royce or Marks Spencer, we would be doing the same thing. This

:02:08.:02:16.

story has everything. Failure is as fascinating to observe as success.

:02:17.:02:21.

This man has been humiliated but his face, you see it on all the front

:02:22.:02:26.

pages. Etched with the misery of that punched look. Who could not be

:02:27.:02:30.

fascinated eye this? I don't think we can actually write enough or say

:02:31.:02:37.

enough about it. Is a human drama. The players perhaps not performing

:02:38.:02:42.

for him. Seeing the former god that was... That controlled their

:02:43.:02:47.

destiny, Alex Ferguson. They perhaps did not have any respect for him?

:02:48.:02:53.

Her even his critics would say he has performed with immense dignity.

:02:54.:03:01.

That is because, certainly as far as I know him, and I do not know him

:03:02.:03:05.

well, he is a thoroughly decent person who, I hope and expect, will

:03:06.:03:12.

get a job perhaps our broad as Steve McClaren did. Don't forget what

:03:13.:03:16.

happened to him as a coach not so long ago. He went abroad and it very

:03:17.:03:21.

well and has come back and is doing well together. My instinct is, we

:03:22.:03:24.

have not heard the last of David Moyes in football. When I look back

:03:25.:03:29.

and reflect on what has happened, there was probably too much change

:03:30.:03:36.

too quickly on and off the pitch. And, succession planning. You a

:03:37.:03:42.

great deal... We have already talked about business and the similarities

:03:43.:03:47.

these days between football. You have succession planning but how

:03:48.:03:52.

often in business, let alone football, does it work out? I can

:03:53.:03:57.

tell you about the way that coaches and managers art recruited in

:03:58.:04:03.

football. Sometimes at a immensely short notice. It is still in so many

:04:04.:04:08.

cases, is a professional, frankly. There is a club which will remain

:04:09.:04:15.

nameless which has been promoted in recent weeks which had a number of

:04:16.:04:22.

disasters with managers and then used a head Hunter to consider a

:04:23.:04:29.

number of candidates and went with that manager and he has the team

:04:30.:04:36.

promoted. I do think there are horses for courses. Sometimes you

:04:37.:04:42.

want a young, thrusting merger and sometimes they need the old head. I

:04:43.:04:46.

find it extraordinary that much he has had to carry account. He did not

:04:47.:04:55.

sign the cheque, did he? This is the question. Where is the

:04:56.:04:59.

responsibility? I always say to people, when you go into a club,

:05:00.:05:05.

when you become chief executive, you can't teach someone to carry out a

:05:06.:05:11.

transfer. You learn on the job almost invariably. People do it in

:05:12.:05:15.

different ways. The chairman of Tottenham is famous, he does deals

:05:16.:05:22.

last minute. Others say, doing deals last minute is a recipe for

:05:23.:05:31.

disaster. Let go to the Metro. Louis van Gaal is tipped for the post. He

:05:32.:05:35.

is the Dutch national coast at the moment. You are a Chelsea fan, you

:05:36.:05:43.

are hoping that the call. I am intrigued by this guy. As a David

:05:44.:05:50.

Moyes got some history with this guy? Black Louis van Gaal is a very

:05:51.:06:00.

strong character. I happen to be in the same hotel as him for several

:06:01.:06:05.

days a year ago, almost a year ago in Brazil. The reality isn't

:06:06.:06:13.

necessarily the image of the past, somewhat maverick, can be very cross

:06:14.:06:17.

rather stern figure that he had in this country. Sounds like Sir Alex

:06:18.:06:26.

Ferguson! He is leaving Holland to the World Cup which goes on until

:06:27.:06:31.

the second week of July. Either way, Holland got to the final time

:06:32.:06:38.

in South Africa. This thing about your own sports presenter is saying

:06:39.:06:43.

tonight, Ryan Giggs is not going to be the permanent manager of

:06:44.:06:48.

Manchester United. Well, the only thing I would say is that if

:06:49.:06:53.

Manchester United romped through the last four games of the season, with

:06:54.:06:58.

wonderful results and the roof comes off at Manchester United, just

:06:59.:07:06.

watch! When people were themselves out. People used to run themselves

:07:07.:07:10.

out who we were never going to consider any way. Ryan Giggs is the

:07:11.:07:15.

only British name mentioned here. There is a whole absence of that

:07:16.:07:22.

kind of manager. Why is that? That is what I am most worried about. I

:07:23.:07:25.

know Brendan Rodgers is a dish manager of Liverpool but the impact

:07:26.:07:36.

of David Moyess failure at United may well be to put the case of

:07:37.:07:43.

British managers back a number of notches at the biggest club which is

:07:44.:07:47.

immensely sad. We are going to go to the Times and a shock drop in

:07:48.:07:53.

violent crime, reduced consumption and binge drinking. This is

:07:54.:07:58.

extraordinary. It is the upside of the downtime. People that incomes

:07:59.:08:03.

were constrained. They could not spend so much on alcohol which

:08:04.:08:06.

became rather more expensive. And so, they can bide less unless

:08:07.:08:15.

violent. These figures are not, we quite often look at crime figures

:08:16.:08:19.

and say, well the statistics are reliable. But these are based on

:08:20.:08:26.

hospital admissions, figures on which we can rely. The ending of

:08:27.:08:30.

bid`rigging has lessened violence on our streets. This is a good news

:08:31.:08:40.

story. This hit or help, the case for increasing minimum prices. I

:08:41.:08:47.

think these figures help the case without a shadow of a doubt. My

:08:48.:08:53.

reaction to this story was, crime statistics have been improving over

:08:54.:08:58.

several years. In the last years of the labour government and the use of

:08:59.:09:03.

the Coalition government. And yet, out in the country, there is huge

:09:04.:09:08.

scepticism about these figures, I think. These figures are impressive.

:09:09.:09:15.

Figures down to the sixth year in a row in England and Wales. The latest

:09:16.:09:20.

quarterly crime statistics overall, not just these figures, are going to

:09:21.:09:24.

be out tomorrow. It will be interesting to see where they go

:09:25.:09:30.

because what's happening in the UK, or at least in England and Wales, is

:09:31.:09:35.

being reflected in other European countries. Very interesting story. A

:09:36.:09:40.

good news story. And also, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Uluru. A

:09:41.:09:55.

reminder of a previous picture. Really rather beautifully posed,

:09:56.:10:00.

despite the lengthening shadows. The extraordinary colours of this rock

:10:01.:10:07.

that used to be called Ayers Rock. This is the image that will make

:10:08.:10:10.

everybody start thinking, yes, I do want to go to Australia. She was

:10:11.:10:17.

also wearing a frock that she had warned before so she was being

:10:18.:10:19.

thrifty. It is a story with everything. A beautiful blue sky

:10:20.:10:25.

there. Having had a go at some elements of PR, one should say that

:10:26.:10:31.

the PR of this trip have been fantastic for Australia and New

:10:32.:10:37.

Zealand. That is very true. And also for the Royal family because the

:10:38.:10:41.

cause of Republicanism has dipped quite a lot Down Under because of

:10:42.:10:46.

the trip. Let's go to the Independent. New England and adviser

:10:47.:10:54.

to model instant rebuttals on successful Obama campaign. I think

:10:55.:10:58.

they have all been watching house of cards. Who hasn't? I just finished

:10:59.:11:06.

the first series. I have watched it and they are all wanting to be a

:11:07.:11:12.

character in that drama. Whenever the Tories say anything bad about Ed

:11:13.:11:17.

Miliband, they will say, that is not true. Is that not just what you do

:11:18.:11:22.

in an election anyway? Vista is telling me that there will be an

:11:23.:11:27.

election and lies will be told and we will say they are not true.

:11:28.:11:32.

Apparently, any time anyone says Ed Miliband is weird, they will say...

:11:33.:11:37.

They will bite. The rebuttal machine, was that not a great

:11:38.:11:44.

strength of the Blair government. There is nothing new. Some of us in

:11:45.:11:51.

about the 1992 general election. I was working for the BBC then in the

:11:52.:11:58.

West Midlands. The weekend before I was told by the Tory agent, sadly

:11:59.:12:05.

now dead, that we are going to lose this election. On the Monday

:12:06.:12:08.

morning, early on, he rang me up and said forget what I told you! We will

:12:09.:12:14.

win this election! The vilification of Neil Covic, if he wins the

:12:15.:12:25.

election today, all that stuff. In itself didn't change the election.

:12:26.:12:32.

That vilification of him over the months leading up to the election

:12:33.:12:35.

and during the election campaign was a big thing. Was that not a very

:12:36.:12:41.

different kind of election that one waged on the front page of

:12:42.:12:43.

newspapers. This election will be all about how you work social media.

:12:44.:12:51.

Very interesting indeed. Finally, the Daily Telegraph. Why are you

:12:52.:13:00.

talking about older people going to Spain and then going to meet? Anyone

:13:01.:13:10.

with a holiday. It is not just the Brits to be fair. If you read this

:13:11.:13:13.

story, we are talking about the Germans as well and the French.

:13:14.:13:18.

Spain has its employment problems big time, particularly youth

:13:19.:13:23.

unemployment. It is an interesting story when you look back only a

:13:24.:13:29.

decade, perhaps 15 years as well. And how things have changed. If you

:13:30.:13:41.

cannot get a job, there is also the health`care issue here. If you are

:13:42.:13:46.

unemployed and under pensionable age in Spain, you are no longer getting

:13:47.:13:53.

any health treatment costs covered. By the UK. If you were not feeling

:13:54.:13:59.

very well, without a job, and unlikely to get one, wouldn't you

:14:00.:14:05.

just think that you have given it a go, let's go home? You run the

:14:06.:14:11.

bricks and mortar section of The Times, these Brits abandoning homes,

:14:12.:14:15.

are they managing to sell them at any kind of profit whatsoever? There

:14:16.:14:19.

are parts of the Spanish market that are beginning to turn, where a

:14:20.:14:23.

recovery is coming, but they tend to be in better areas. A lot of these

:14:24.:14:30.

homes that were built illegally, who knows when that problem will be

:14:31.:14:34.

resolved? I suppose people get tired of waiting for their lives to begin

:14:35.:14:38.

and are cutting losses and coming home. Some people are losing a lot

:14:39.:14:47.

of money? They have stuck at this story. It appears there are 100,000

:14:48.:14:54.

of our fellow countrymen and women in Spain `` 800,000. Migrants

:14:55.:15:01.

working? Yes, living there, at least part of the year. That is a heck of

:15:02.:15:09.

a lot of people, isn't it? 800,000? It is not all over. Indeed. The news

:15:10.:15:15.

about the euro and the European crisis, in regards to its finances,

:15:16.:15:22.

seems to be getting better. That is fairly good news. It has been great

:15:23.:15:27.

having you both here. Many thanks. Stay with us, at the top of the

:15:28.:15:31.

hour, we will have more on the crisis in Ukraine, tensions are

:15:32.:15:36.

rising that, especially in the east, as the acting president orders a

:15:37.:15:41.

relaunch of military action against the pro` Russian groups. But now, on

:15:42.:15:57.

BBC News, it is time for Sportsday. Welcome to Sportsday. So much for

:15:58.:16:05.

being the Chosen One. Manchester United are looking for the Right

:16:06.:16:08.

One, after sacking David Moyes. Chelsea lose Cech and Terry but old

:16:09.:16:12.

Athletico Madrid to a goal`less draw in the Champions' League

:16:13.:16:14.
