Liverpool fans poke fun at Arsenal abuse with cheeky new flag for Carabao Cup semi-final
Liverpool fans will be heading to the Emirates tonight equipped with a cheeky new flag as they poke fun at opponents Arsenal.The Premier League pair will finally face off in north London in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final - a fixture that was originally scheduled to be played two weeks ago.An alleged Covid-19 outbreak in the Liverpool camp was the reason behind the game's postponement, however, it was subsequently revealed that the match should have taken place due to the scare actually being caused by a number of false positives.The revelation was widely condemned by Gunners' fans and it seems some of the Reds' faithful are keen for their aggrieved opponents not to forget the controversial misunderstanding during the second leg.An image doing the rounds on Twitter prior to the match displayed a Liverpool flag containing the words 'UP THE FALSE POSITIVE REDS' in a playful dig to their rivals.The banner, which also included the club's liver bird logo and six stars to represent Liverpool's six Champions League triumphs, was accompanied by the caption: "Flag ready for the Emirates."Following the decision to postpone the first leg of the semi-final, Arsenal released a statement expressing their "disappointment" at the news and it's fair to say their supporters weren't best pleased.Who will progress to the Carabao Cup final: Liverpool or Arsenal?

Simon Cowell set to downsize SyCo firm to ‘focus on family’ following engagement news
Simon Cowell formed the company back in 2004, and despite its enormous success over the past two decades, the music mogul is said to want to focus more of his attention on family life.The timing couldn't have been better following the recent news of Simon's engagement to Lauren Silverman during the couple's getaway trip to Barbados last month.The 62-year-old's bike accident in 2020 is also believed to have played a part in his decision to scale down on his business.Various staff members are expected to leave as a production source described it as "the end of an era"."The experience and launchpad Syco gives its employees is completely unique and working alongside Simon is a huge opportunity – he has given so many careers and opportunities to so many people, both off-screen and on-screen," the source told Mail Online."It's not just the UK, but with shows they make all over the world, he indirectly opens the door for so many people."I know Simon is an incredible mentor, and working with him has taken so many people to the very top of the entertainment business all over the world."Though SyCo is downsizing in the coming months, the source insisted that his employees will continue to excel in their careers because working for Simon has made them "the very best in the business".It's further said that his employees won't be struggling to find a new job because of the connections they would have made by working for the father-of-one, who has provided resources for his team that could see them helm a position anywhere in the entertainment industry.The source asserted that working for Simon was unlike working for an ordinary boss because Simon valued everyone working under his company."Simon's a very inspiring and loyal company

Simon Cowell 'spent £250k on stunning engagement ring' for fiancée Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell is said to have spent a whopping amount on the engagement ring he presented Lauren Silverman when he popped the question last month.The pair had been holidaying out in Barbados when the music mogul proposed to the American socialite. According to reports, Lauren had already been giving Simon hints about what ring she would want if they were to get married one day. "And Simon, not being stupid, took notice," a source told The Sun."He chose the diamond himself, after getting some professional advice, and went down on one knee whilst on the beach."Both Lauren and Simon have been bombarded with messages of congratulations — they're both super-excited."It was initially claimed that Simon had spent an astounding £2.5 million for the ring, which a source close to the former X Factor judge has since denied. Simon and Lauren have been together since 2013 after the latter ended her 10-year marriage to American businessman Andrew Silverman in July that same year.They went on to welcome their son Eric Cowell in 2014.Express.co.uk has contacted Simon's reps for comment.Earlier this week, Simon and his soon-to-be wife were seen cycling through the streets of sunny Malibu together when a photographer asked the pair to confirm whether they were engaged.Simon cheekily replied: "What do you think?"He thanked the photog who congratulated the doting pair on the exciting news. Elsewhere, Amanda Holden has since reacted to the news of her Britain's Got Talent co-judge looking to tie the knot with his fiancée.Taking to her Heart Breakfast Show on Wednesday, the mother-of-two said she was stunned after receiving a text from Simon announcing his engagement. She recalled: "We all got the text saying, 'It's happening', and we couldn't
