He added: "After one season you start to learn a lot of new situations, you start to live a lot of situations". Eden Hazard played for the club's Under-23s on Friday night but won't be involved against the Toffees.

I can just kind of ricochet him and Adrian is going to make the runs. Tom Savage is the starting QB but for how long?

One day the dream will come true and I look forward to being there as a fan- or in any capacity . (more...)

Thomas took the exam in Cleveland on Friday before flying back home to the West Coast, league sources said . The Celtics operated under the assumption that they were clear with the Cavaliers on the physical status of Thomas. LeBron James has rarely been one to shy away from giving his opinion.
