As Jurgen Klopp attempts to turn around his misfiring Liverpool side, it’s understandable there are going to be all sorts of transfer rumours.The Reds have already landed centre-back Steven Caulker on loan as they look to strengthen their creaky defence.And now there is speculation over who could be drafted into Klopp’s forward line, with Liverpool being linked with Southampton striker Shane Long.The Irish star has scored five goals in the Premier League this campaign but is also well known for his hard work off the ball.But some supporters aren’t as keen as Klopp might be on the forward.

United States Arena: CONCACAF has ‘the stupidest card rules’ Thomas Floyd @thomasfloyd10 11:13 10/7/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) United States WC Qualification CONCACAF United States v Panama Panama The U.S. national team coach criticized the regulation that sees a player suspended for earning two yellow cards at any point in World Cup qualifying ORLANDO, Fla. — A 4-0 rout of Panama may have left Bruce Arena in a buoyant mood Friday, but the U.S. national team coach still found himself irked by a quirk of CONCACAF’s World Cup qualifying format.Arena criticized the confederation’s harsh penalty for yellow card accumulation, which sees a player earn a one-game suspension for receiving two cards at any point in the qualification process.The U.S. played its 15th match on the road to Russia 2018 on Friday, with nine of the 23 players dressed for the match — including starters Michael Bradley, Matt Besler, DeAndre Yedlin and Paul Arriola — one card away from a ban.

If you got a yellow card in game one and picked one up tonight, you’d be suspended for game . It’s the stupidest — I don’t understand it. I’m just happy I haven’t been around this stuff for a lot of years because I’d lose my mind.”The U.S. avoided any bookings at Orlando City Stadium while Panama earned three yellow cards on a night American star Christian Pulisic absorbed several fouls.Although the strict suspension rules would theoretically limit excessive physicality, Arena floated out the possibility that referees hesitate to hand out cards because they’re aware of the harsh effect a booking could have.”Our players can’t take a card, really,” Arena said. “It happens the whole competition. For some reason then the referees aren’t giving out yellow cards too because they realize that players will be suspended the next game.”So we never know what kind of mentality the referee is going to bring, what kind of posture we can take. We have to be smart. We can’t lose Michael Bradley going in and whacking someone retaliating on a foul on Christian.”
VANCOUVER – Fans of the Vancouver Canucks may be in for a surprise the next time they find themselves browsing the aisles of the high-end fashion world.Italian luxury designer Versace has released a sweatshirt with a symbol bearing a striking resemblance to the NHL hockey team’s so-called Flying Skate logo, which players wore from the late 1970s to the late 1990s.The Versace pullover is priced $1,525 on one retail website, and is described as having “a retro-nodding stone embellished logo patch.”Both logos use similar red, yellow and black colour schemes with slash marks running parallel to diagonal text, all superimposed on a circle background.A social media user pointed out the similarity on Wednesday, prompting a flood of online commentary.The Canucks and Versace could not immediately be reached for comment.
