It's 50 years since Henry Cooper floored Cassius Clay with 'Enry's 'Ammer. We recall a famous night.
Follow the latest from the written press with the best gossip and speculation from the papers.
Aston Villa have confirmed that Gerard Houllier's job is safe despite a dismal run of results.
Villa slipped into the Premier League drop zone following Wednesday night's home defeat to Sunderland, with many supporters calling for manager Houllier's head.
The Midlands outfit have failed to win any of their last four games, having suffered a total of 10 defeats so far this term, while reports have emerged of dissent in the club's dressing room.
However, Houllier claimed after the Black Cats defeat that he had the full backing of club owner Randy Lerner and chief executive Paul Faulkner.
And the Villa board stated on Thursday that Houllier's position is not under threat, and the Frenchman will be given time to turn things around at the helm of the club.
Houllier said after Wednesday's defeat: "I spoke to Paul Faulkner and he was very supportive.
"I don't doubt Randy Lerner's firm support and determination. We are in this together for better or worse."
Former Liverpool boss Houllier, who took over in late September following Martin O'Neill's departure just before the season, has guided Villa to just five wins in his 19 games in charge.
The manager will hope for some relief from Villa's league woes when the club travel to Sheffield United in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.
How in gods name is Houllier still a manager at our club?!. Allardyce and Hughton were both dismissed following a run of poor results however when they were sacked, both their respective teams were doing better than Villa!!. He really needs to go, he's lost the dressing room and the support of the fans. For the first time in years I really do fear relegation. Martin O'Neill's teams may not have played pretty football but he got results and consistently finished in a european place 4 years in a row.

Randy - bad move. This man has took a team from challenging for top 4 to relegation material. If we was in the C'ship - we'd be getting relegated under this idiot. Get rid now. He's lost the dressing room, regardless what he says in interviews....which will result in some of our decent players going. He'll buy foreign unheard of rubbish...Randy will realise he's made a mistake after letting him loose with a few million then we'll be back to square 1 or relegated. Then more cash will need to be spent to rebuild again. Seen it before. I hate to say it but I really pray we get dumped out the Cup this weekend and that we lose to Blues and whoever else we play after. Its the only way this muppet will go. Didn't want him in the 1st place. We're doomed with him.
