So will many hockey fans. Tuukka Rask would have headed back as part of Team Finland as well.

Ronald Koeman doesn't seem to like the behavior from Jurgen Klopp on the touchline, describing it as insane. He praised Liverpool's discipline and said that they "did really well" particularly given "the importance of the game" to show that they "would do everything for this derby" but that they wanted "all the players to leave the pitch without injuries".
Mane has obviously been ruled out for Wednesday's match against Bournemouth, with Divock Origi expected to move into the starting XI in his place. The manager replied: "Unfortunately, that's possible, but I can not say it now so why should I say it when I don't know?" It's swollen because of different reasons.
From that position of strength, and with Wenger's charges low on confidence after a run of only one win in their five previous top-flight encounters, City should have pressed home their advantage and killed the game off. Given that Arsene Wenger's side were also wasteful in possession, it was virtually the worst possible start for the beleaguered Frenchman. Koscieleny doesn't complete the full 90 minutes frequently enough, Walcott's behaviour after being taken off was out of order and Ozil ...
Berry scored 22 points, fighting through ankle injuries that have lingered, and was named the most outstanding player of the Final Four. Johnathan Williams also picked up his fourth foul in the second half. Free throws, put-backs and a game-sealing breakaway dunk helped him get to 16 points, but the total belied the kind of shooting night that made talk of a domed football stadium's hard depth perception seem insufficient.
The 21 year old also urged The Gunner' fans to show more respect to the Frenchman who is on the verge of signing a new deal at the club.

Shaw's last appearance was a month ago in the fiery clash against Bournemouth, when it was alleged Mourinho became incensed after seeing the 21-year-old defender chatting to an opposition player at the break. Shaw was the last one to come off, while at the same time Mourinho was publicly slamming him in the press conference room.

Toronto scored an important win over a team they lost to last week, a win that brought them into second place in the Atlantic Division and close to clinching at least a wild-card berth in the post-season. In came Sabres backup goalie Anders Nilsson. It was one of the worst games of the year for the Sabres and by far their worst start of the season. Alex and William's father, Michael, played 920 National Hockey League games for eight clubs and four times scored 23 or more goals for Chicago ...
Ross Barkley's challenge on Dejan Lovren was the most highlighted of these challenges, and while Jurgen Klopp refused to pass judgement, his counterpart Ronald Koeman was quick to defend his player. The Reds got the better of the Toffees 3-1 at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. "That is the only thing I do not like". I spoke to Romelu, he was not really sharp, he was a little bit exhausted.
Sometimes that streaky nature can lead to a run of six missed cuts in seven starts, like he experienced at the beginning of past year, and sometimes it can lead to three straight rounds of 63, which Henley shot en route to victory in his very first start as a rookie in 2013.

The two players who are certain to return to action against Everton are Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera, both of whom served the last match of their respective suspensions in the match against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. The Portuguese coach is eyeing a new left-back in the summer after growing impatient with Shaw's lack of dedication in training and believes the Scotland global is an ideal option.

This is how it goes sometimes in the NCAA tournament. Again, you have to take your hats off to SC and Dawn Staley for a tremendous effort today. The players present were Seimone Augustus, Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Maya Moore, Breanna Stewart, Tamika Catchings and Lindsay Whalen.

January 16 vs. Portland: With Washington leading 120-99 with eight seconds left in the game, and 2.4 remaining on the shot clock, Satoransky launched a 3-pointer.

The Chilean is out of contract in 2018 and looks no closer to signing an extension, which will leave Arsenal at risk of losing him for free in a year if they do not find a buyer in the coming window. You just want our fans to stand behind the team and the club, and that's what they did. Of course, the move won't come cheap as United will be expected to shell out £25m for the England worldwide just two years after seeing him get away for 1/10 that amount.
The NHL has wanted to put a foothold in there for years, and the announcement just last week that the Kings and Canucks would be playing two preseason games there only confirms it.
