- November 08, 2017

A Paris Masters security guard failed to recognise Rafael Nadal and refused to let him pass, albeit for a few minutes, since Nadal was not carrying his tournament card. "Who are you?" he asked.

Roy Keane tells Liverpool fans to 'lighten up' after criticism Roy Keane tells Liverpool fans to 'lighten up' after criticism
- November 08, 2017

Keane tore into Liverpool last week after their 3-0 Champions League win over Slovenian minnows Maribor. Let's be honest, they are going nowhere. He added that he wouldn't watch them if they were playing in his own "back garden". As they often do, Keane's comments received quite the reaction. I grew up watching them in the '80s - winning leagues every year - and I think my comments were, from my point of view, a bit of tongue-in-cheek. (more...)

Jeff Hendrick (glute) and Stephen Ward (knee) are injury concerns. Ireland No 2 Keane said: "To Peter?" "Come Thursday or Friday if he's not training, yeah".

- November 08, 2017

McDavid finished a flashy 2-on-1 by lifting a shot past Greiss for the victor after taking in a spinning backhand pass from Draisaitl. Leon Draisaitl had a goal and an assist for Edmonton (5-8-1), which opened a four-game road trip. "It didn't look great", coach Doug Weight said. Shortly after Draisaitl's goal, the Islanders did bury one. It was a risky position for us. "At that age, his maturity, the way he carries himself and the way he plays every game, it's special".

Thomas commented on James' post. In screenshots shared by TotalProSports .com, James asked, "Teach me how to hunt and I'll teach you to play ball". But you never know.
