Phil Thompson has high hopes of Liverpool finally ending their Premier League trophy drought this season, but says its too early to call them title contenders. Jack Crawford Jersey . The Reds currently sit top of the table but last won Englands top-flight in 1990, and have finished as runners-up three times since the Premier Leagues inception in 1992.Thommo appeared on Sky Sports Now on Wednesday morning to pick his Liverpool runners-up XI, made up of Liverpool stars from 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14, as well as some from Jurgen Klopps current squad... Thommos XI comprises of Sami Hyypia and Michael Owen from 01/02, Pepe Reina and Xabi Alonso from 2008/09, Luis Suarez from 13/14 and Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho (who also played in 13/14) from the current side.Also included are Jamie Carragher who played in 01/02 and 08/09, and Steven Gerrard who featured in all three Liverpool sides that have finished second in the Premier League so far. Steven Gerrard featured in all three Liverpool sides who finished second Thommo believes Liverpools impressive start gives them a chance of glory, but did move to play down expectations.I cant say Liverpool will win the title, he said. Theyve got as good a chance as anybody else but its only 11 games in. Hopefully by the time its 25 games we can sit here and say theres a real chance.Weve done extremely well so far, and its not only great to be top of the league, its also the quality of the football that this side has played which has been truly fantastic to watch. Thommo believes the Liverpool players understand how manager Jurgen Klopp wants to play [Klopp] has had plenty of time now to work on this high pressing and intensity game. They all understand what the manager wants and the signing of [Sadio] Mane has brought that extra pace which the team was lacking up front, hes been nothing short of sensational. [Roberto] Firmino has been truly magnificent as well.People say you need one player who will get you 25 goals and a secondary striker who will get you 15, but this side has players who are all chipping in, and weve also seen goals from the likes of [Jordan] Henderson and [Emre] Can. Its also how many chances theyre creating at times, against Watford they scored six but it could have been far more. Philippe Coutinho (R) has been one of the standout players for Liverpool so far Thommo also reckons that Manchester City and Chelsea, currently second and third in the table, will be Liverpools biggest threats this season.[City are] the best-equipped squad, he said. Ive been impressed with the manager and how hes handled the problems theyve had. I love Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva is great and [they have] Sergio Aguero as well.Chelsea also have a great chance but its a case of whether they get found out somewhere along the line. The one thing for [Antonio] Conte is his big players like Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are enjoying their football now whereas they werent last year.

Brian Poole Jersey . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. http://www.falconsauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-andy-levitre-jersey.html . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points.  Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two. Ill make this clear before anyone begins to get too upset: Bullying and hazing have no place in organized sports, or in civil society for that matter.On that Im sure we can all -- at least most of us -- agree. The combination has ruined many lives, and wed all be better off without it.That said, Im still finding it hard to imagine who brought this up when negotiators for Major League Baseball and the players union got together at the bargaining table for their new contract .Uh, guys, weve been getting some complaints lately that players have had to dress up like women. Some have even put on lipstick, and badly. Before we get to free agency and the minimum wage, Id like to propose some new contract language that bans players from dressing up as Hooters waitresses or Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.To be sure, its not such a bad thing. If youve ever seen a grown baseball player in a dress and wig, youd quickly realize most are no RuPaul. Fellow players might find it funny, but locker room humor isnt always that humorous.Still, you have to wonder why baseball players seem to have such a need to be protected from everything these days.They cant slide hard into second base anymore for fear of either hurting themselves or the $20 million-a-year shortstop. No collisions allowed at home plate, either, because someone watched an old film clip of Pete Rose running over Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star Game.Dont even think of violating a pitch count, or a new-age manager like Dave Roberts of the Dodgers will head to the mound with a hook even when a pitcher (Rich Hill) is throwing a perfect game.And, of course, soon they wont be able to spit tobacco all over the turf, something thats been around in baseball for well over a century and helped popularize the spitball in the old days.Whats next, a ban on shaving cream pies in the eye after game-winning RBI? They can sting a bit, you know, and who can say there wont be permanent eye damage?Sometimes, these big bruising multimillionaires just look like babies. Actually, they did last year when manager Joe Maddon had his Cubs wear pajamas on the flight home from a tough 1-0 loss to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.That surely will be banned, too, especially after the newspaper headline the next morning in Chicago after pitcher John Lester was seen walking from the clubhouse in a onesie and cowboy boots. Matt Ryan Jersey. Cubs sent home in their pajamas after series spanking by Dodgers, it read.Some of the rationale for the new rule is that what happens in the clubhouse doesnt stay in the clubhouse anymore. Thats largely because of social media, which the players themselves can sometimes use carelessly.What is supposed to be a gag among 25 guys doesnt look so funny when its spread on Instagram or Twitter.Theres lots of pictures of baseball players dressed up as Disney princesses, MLB Vice President Paul Mifsud said.Theres also a picture of Mike Trout dressed as Lady Gaga in a 2011 rookie hazing that still circulates online. Trout seems to be taking it in good spirits, but you have to wonder if he will one day regret he didnt get to be a Disney princess instead.Yes, the line should be drawn at outright bullying and hazing. Richie Incognitos bullying of Jonathan Martin when the two were teammates on the Miami Dolphins highlighted the ugly and very real consequences of such behavior.But Im not sure that grown men getting paid millions of dollars to play sports need protection against everything. And while having rookies don cheerleader outfits or princess costumes may be a bit embarrassing and not politically correct, its probably not going to scar anybody for life.Not everything can be legislated, and not everything can be negotiated. Ballplayers will sometimes just be ballplayers, and thats part of their appeal.They scratch and spit, and do things sometimes that youd rather not see your kids doing. But then you watch them jumping all over each other after winning a World Series and realize that underneath it all theyre a lot like kids, too, only bigger.Oh, wait, no more jumping around. Someone might get hurt.A polite handshake will have to suffice.----Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.
