    More details here on the news that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is likely to need an operation on his shoulder this summer, according to Reds first-team coach Mike Marsh.
    He has been playing with a shoulder injury for quite a while now. We'll try to find the right time for him to get it fixed properly. If it needs repairing, it needs repairing.

    The battle for McCoy's Premier League Darts play-off places continues in Birmingham on Thursday, with Phil Taylor, Simon Whitlock, Adrian Lewis and Robert Thornton facing crucial nights in their bids for a top-four finish. Taylor is relishing the chance to shine in the Midlands.
    It was a difficult night in Dublin and it will be tough again in Birmingham, but I'm looking forward to the challenge. I've not been at my best recently but I'm doing a lot of work to improve my game. I'm trying a few things and it's not quite right yet, but I'll keep trying.

    [twtr]More of your Twitter reaction to the Luis Suarez ban
    Think it's right to ban him for ten games , there's no need to bite people on the pitch #skysportstoday adam gilmore via Twitter at 3:48 PM
    Joey Barton got a worse punishment for less than what Suarez did. #Liverpool need to just move on and stop complaining #skysportstoday Michael Hakim Byrne via Twitter at 3:55 PM
    I think it's a fair ban, although I think he is lucky to get away with 10 games, Barton got 12 games for violent conduct.MillsyApr 24, 2013 at 4:04 PM

    Tottenham should not be bullied into selling Gareth Bale this summer, says their former striker Paul Walsh.
    Daniel Levy has been quite hard-nosed on a couple of other occasions in the past so I don't think Tottenham are just going to roll over.

    Sheikh Mohammed was "appalled and angered" to learn that samples from 11 of the Godolphin horses trained by Mahmood Al Zarooni were found to have contained traces of anabolic steroids. Click here for the full story.
    I have been involved in British horse racing for 30 years and have deep respect for its traditions and rules. I built my country based on the same solid principles. There can be no excuse for any deliberate violation.

    [glennmccrory] Glenn McCrory reckons America's boxing superstars will soon be appearing in a British ring...
    Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer told Ringside a few months ago that he wants to bring the best American fighters over to Britain to fight - and I believe him. I've been to fights in New York and Las Vegas, but the atmosphere over there is nothing compared to what we get in England.

    Your reaction to the Luis Suarez 10-game ban keeps pouring in. Here are more of your comments:
    Should be punished but once again over reaction from the FA. Over the last few months I have seen a player head butting another player, another jumping on another player, over the top tackles that were leg breakers ,elbow to the face. if I was him I would seek legal advice against these people for being victimised ,ban him yes but 10 games is a joke.tomApr 24, 2013 at 4:28 PM
    Yes Luis was wrong but the FA are harsh again against him. People who go out to break people's bones do not get this treatment. 5 games would be sufficient....hoggie 1801Apr 24, 2013 at 4:27 PM
    I have been a liverpool fan since the 70s. I think the ban is not enough. It should have been a lot longer. Liverpool need to cut their losses and get shut. He may be a world class player but that was appalling. There is no excuse for that sort of behaviour.kenny almondApr 24, 2013 at 4:27 PM

    [skybet]Luis Suarez is likely to stay at Liverpool this summer - despite being handed a 10-game ban. That's the view of bookmakers Sky Bet, who make Suarez 4/11 to still be at Anfield after the summer transfer window closes on September 1. The Uruguayan is 2/1 to have left the club by then. The suspension comes after Suarez bit Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic during the second half of Sunday's 2-2 draw at Anfield.

    Former England wicketkeeper Alec Stewart is backing the nation to win the Ashes this summer following the announcement of Australia’s for the series. Click here for the latest county cricket scorecards.
    It’s a decent squad. I think there’s a nice mix of youth and experience. Australia’s battling line-up has lacked a bit of backbone, it certainly lacks experience in English conditions, so to bring back (Chris) Rogers makes sense. I always believe pick your best side. If you’re only looking forward then you’re not looking at the here and now. They are coming here to win the Ashes. Surely to do that you’ve got to pick your best XL.

    Bolton skipper Kevin Davies has turned down the opportunity to join Toronto FC when his contract at the Reebok Stadium ends in the summer.
    My young family and I were naturally very excited about the opportunity of going to Toronto on a short-term deal but after legal advice we felt that certain obstacles put in our way were too large to overcome.

    Leighton Baines is the unsung hero of Everton's season, according to goalkeeper Tim Howard. The England left-back has been overlooked for the PFA Player of the Year award but Howard has no doubts about his importance to the Toffees.
    He's our key cog. We've got Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar and those guys, and obviously Kevin Mirallas, can produce a bit of magic. But without Bainesy this team doesn't go. It's just hard sometimes for people on the outside to see that.

    PFA chief Gordon Taylor has told Sky Sports that Luis Suarez needs help as well as punishing.

    I think there are two ways you can deal with justice, one is a sanction and deterrent, which this is definitely sending out a strong message, but what I would like to re-emphasise is that trying to get the particular player, in this case Luis Suarez, back on track and make sure there is a proper programme of counselling.
