Bravo recalled to Windies squad after 2-year absence Bravo recalled to Windies squad after 2-year absence
- October 08, 2018

Friday's success owes itself to a collective impeccable performance from Indian bowlers in both innings, that sent the Windies packing with 181 and 196 runs in the first and second innings respectively. We want to improve upon the things we need to do, not focus on what the opposition wants to do. The guys struggled a bit because of that, it was hard for guys to bat 45 minutes without water.

Reid kneels during anthem in his Panthers' debut Reid kneels during anthem in his Panthers' debut
- October 08, 2018

Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job in football, nearly certainly because of his decision to kneel during the playing of the national anthem to bring attention to the issues of police brutality and racial inequality. Smith said "no one cares" if he kneels during the national anthem. It has always been my understanding that the courageous men and women who fought and died for our country did so to ensure that we could live in a fair and free society, which includes the right to speak out in ...

Jurgen Klopp says Nations League is most senseless competition in the world Jurgen Klopp says Nations League is most senseless competition in the world
- October 08, 2018

After all it can not, and should not, always be about the forwards. "We've played City now that often and they're just outstanding". Mourinho has strangled the life out of games at Anfield a few times and been condemned for it, but Guardiola now appears to have taken a leaf out of the United manager's book by accepting that tactics need to be altered for games like these.

- October 08, 2018

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and elected to bat first, before the hosts handed a debut to offspinner Bilal Asif , with 26-test seamer Wahab Riaz selected ahead of Mir Hamza. Eventually the experienced Azhar Ali (18, 80 balls) succumbed to the pressure, losing his wicket to a poor shot off Holland in the 87th over. Australia captain Tim Paine brought on Lyon in the ninth over but Pakistan reached lunch at 89-0 before adding a further 110 runs in the second session. (more...)

Bernardo Silva ensures all goes to plan for Pep Guardiola Bernardo Silva ensures all goes to plan for Pep Guardiola
- October 08, 2018

Liverpool maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign but were below expectations offensively and created few goalscoring opportunities of note. There will be three, four or five City players who they look at. "It was really intense and both showed respect for the other team", he said. Don't lose the ball in risky positions because when you lose the ball there they counterattack with [Roberto] Firmino, [Sadio] Mané and [Mohamed] Salah. (more...)

Rangers bring Hearts back down to earth Rangers bring Hearts back down to earth
- October 07, 2018

All three of Liverpool's midfielders - Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner - are best suited to the pressing game rather than falling deep as they did against Napoli . Remember, there are a few young players in Steven Gerrard's team, and they will still be finding their feet at such a high level. When we won 2-1 at City, they pushed us in our 18-yard box and we didn't know how to come out. (more...)
Silverman: David Price should not start in October anymore Silverman: David Price should not start in October anymore
- October 07, 2018

Price could have addressed the media in the cramped clubhouse underneath the stands at Fenway Park, answered a few question in hushed tones, but it made sense for him to give a more public assessment of his performance. Of course, the Red Sox's 6-2 loss to the Yankees, which knotted this best-of-five series at one game apiece, couldn't be pinned entirely on Price - who lasted just 1 ⅔ innings and 42 pitches and gave up three earned runs in his latest postseason dud - but try telling that to ...

- October 07, 2018

After enduring the humiliation of a beverage bath following the Athletics' 7-2 loss - and somehow remaining calm - Spencer will now receive a special "care package" from his hometown team. The freakish part about this tweet is the apparent pride the Yankees fan takes in the actions in the video. Yankees fans can then be seen jumping around and celebrating. (more...)
