    Jamie Vardy is having plenty of port parties. Premier League footballers will typically have their dietary regime strictly controlled by their employers. In order to squeeze that extra one percent from every performance, Pep Guardiola banned his Manchester City players from eating pizza, Antonio Conte has taken ketchup off the table and Arsene Wenger has taken a monastic view towards player diets since the 1990s.

  • Liverpool to postpone further Anfield expansion after fan protest

    Liverpool owner John Henry says fan protests against ticket prices are causing the club to reassess plans to further redevelop Anfield. Henry’s Fenway Sports Group apologized to fans earlier this year and reversed planned rises in ticket prices after a walkout during a game. But having funded the redevelopment of Liverpool’s main stand over the last year, the next phase of the expansion program might not make economic sense if the club can’t recoup the construction cost. The Anfield Road stand had been next in line for rebuilding at the 54,000-capacity Anfield. “I don’t know if there is a next step because ticket prices are an issue in England,” Henry said. “That may foreclose further expansion.

United is a point behind Fenerbahce in Group A, level on points with Feyenoord but would sit behind them on head-to-head tiebreakers.

  • Pete Rose wrote a letter to the Hall of Fame, pleading to be placed on the ballot

    Tim Brown of Yahoo has obtained a letter written by Pete Rose — well, written by his attorney — to the Baseball Hall of Fame, pleading to be placed on the ballot so he could be considered for induction by the BBWAA. The upshot of the argument is that when Rose accepted his permanent ban from baseball, it did not include a ban from Hall of Fame consideration. Which, yes, is true. But it’s also true that soon after the ban, the Hall of Fame — which is a private institution, not owned by Major League Baseball — decided to change its rules and only allow those who are not banned by baseball to be on its ballot. That rule, 3(e), was enacted in February 1991. Which is itself a tad disingenuous, as
