Kljestan converted a penalty kick, after a hand ball in the penalty area by Frederic Brillant, in the 41st minute. Two minutes later, Thomas McNamara sent a shot, from well outside the area, to the top-right corner and trimmed the NYCFC deficit to 3-1. Wright-Phillips outdueled defender Ethan White for a loose ball, then cut back

  • Jeremy Lin talks Knicks tenure, Melo and Courtney Lee

    Jeremy Lin will forever be a staple in the heart of New York City and Madison Square Garden. And while he's tried to develop a reputation as a dependable NBA player following the outbreak of Linsanity for the last several years, similar questions are resurfacing as Lin goes through the motions with the Big Apple media as the newest member of the Brooklyn Nets. "I was really, really sad. I was sad the way everything went down, 'cause nothing happened the way I thought it was going to. I had wished that they had offered me a contract just in the beginning," Lin told Steve Serby of the New York Post in a recent Q&A of his Knickerbocker ending. Of course, the Knicks opted not to offer Lin a contract.

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

    Claudio Ranieri hasn’t lost his way with words over the summer. The Leicester City boss who famously refused to admit his team was in a title race for most of the Premier League season is keeping it cool in the wake of N'Golo Kante signing for Chelsea. Simply put, Ranieri says everything’s going to be fine. From Sky Sports: “Last season we lost Esteban Cambiasso and everybody was crying,” Ranieri said, after his side drew 1-1 with Celtic in a pre-season friendly. “Now we are crying because we lost Kante. Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going.” Kante was probably the most important part of Leicester’s title capture last season, but Ranieri’s system was also critical. The follow-up

  • With arbitration hearing looming, Corrado and Leafs aren’t that far apart

    Frank Corrado should be used to waiting by now. He had to wait 28 games before the Leafs inserted him into the lineup for the first time last season and now he’s waiting for a new contract. There’s still a gap between the two sides, but it doesn’t appear to be very significant. Corrado and the Leafs will head to arbitration on July 26th unless the two sides can agree to a new deal before then. According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, The Leafs have two different offers on the table. One is a two-way contract, while the other is a one-way deal that would see him make less money if he sticks in the NHL. Corrado is looking for a one-way deal worth $900,000. Toronto scooped Corrado up off waivers

    Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are poised to renew their fierce rivalry in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix after locking out the front row of the grid for Mercedes. Hamilton went into qualifying chasing a sixth pole position at the Hungaroring, and looked to have clinched it when a yellow flag was shown at the end of Q3 following a spin for Fernando Alonso. All drivers were forced to slow down, the majority abandoning their lap altogether. Rosberg was the exception. After lifting through the yellow flag zone, the German lit up the timesheets over the rest of the lap to edge out Hamilton and snatch pole away. The stewards did investigate Rosberg’s lap later that evening to ensure he had slowed

  • As Pogba bids creep over $130 mil, PST takes stock of the player

    The new number is $133 million. That’s what Manchester United has apparently offered in a total package to pry Paul Pogba from Juventus, where the Serie A club has been ready to hold out for more from the first moment the player and club were linked. The latest story comes from Alan Smith and Fabrizio Romano of The Guardian, who say that Juve’s move for Gonzalo Higuain has not made the sale of Pogba a formality. The thing with Pogba is that he doesn’t always pass the eye test, but statistically he’s close to flying colors. In some ways, he’s an analytics man’s conundrum. Pogba’s 12 assists tied for the Serie A lead with Miralem Pjanic of Roma, and he tied for 20th in goals with eight while blasting
