Friday will mark six months since Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp but the club find themselves down in ninth in the Premier League table. Nike Air Max 90 Billig . Even so, the German coach has provided enough glimpses to give supporters hope for next season, writes Adam Bate… Weve really developed in the last few months, Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports. Thats how it is. Our game has changed.We have a lot of possession. We spend a lot of time in dangerous zones on the pitch. We create chances. We dont score enough goals and we concede too many goals, thats the truth. But weve become more and more stable. Given that Klopp was appointed in October and has since been expected to work with another managers players, stable is what Liverpool supporters will settle for this season - as long as it comes with the promise of improvement. There were further signs of that improvement in Saturdays 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Anfield.Of course, Mauricio Pochettinos Spurs side are seen as a template for just about every team in the Premier League right now. Certainly, Liverpool are looking to adopt a pressing game of their own under Klopp. That much was evident in the reverse fixture - Klopps first in charge of Liverpool - when the Reds became the first team to outrun Tottenham this term. Sprint stars Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana each made more than 70 sprints against Tottenham on Saturday. In running more than 115 kilometres at Anfield on Saturday, Klopps team have also become the first to manage that feat both home and away this year. The players produced 600 sprints to Spurs 539 too, but pressing is far more than mere running. Its an organised and coherent tactic in order to control the game and disrupt the opponent.Naturally, that requires time on the training ground - something Klopp has been denied due to the cycle of matches and recovery that Liverpool have endured. In reaching the final of the Capital One Cup and playing more games in Europe than any other English team, there have been a barely believable 18 midweek games for Klopps men since his October arrival. Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for Liverpool against Tottenham It is telling that while Stoke boss Mark Hughes is typical of club managers in bemoaning the international break and its effect on his players, Klopp welcomed it. Most of them played only one game so we are something like refreshed, he said. Usually the international break is not too nice but today its not a problem. So now we are back and recharged.We saw some evidence of the pressing against Tottenham - the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana forcing the visitors into errors in their own half on a regular basis. Unfortunately, despite Klopps insistence that his players are fresh, they are playing in patches and struggling to press home the advantage in games. Reds fading? Liverpool have surrendered 17 points from winning positions this season. Harry Kanes equaliser means Liverpool have now dropped more points - 17 of them - from winning positions than any other team in the Premier League. In the previous game, a 3-2 defeat at Southampton, his side squandered a two-goal lead. Its clear that this is little more than a work in progress for now.That point is further highlighted by the fact that Klopp has picked up fewer points from his 22 Premier League games than Rodgers did in his final 22 games at the helm. Liverpool are a team still failing to take their chances. Only Tottenham and Manchester City have had as many shots as them this season, and yet they are only the divisions eighth-highest scorers. Premier League 2015/16 Team Shots Tottenham 548 Man City 533 Liverpool 481 Arsenal 468 We have to be ruthless and take chances, Reds midfielder James Milner said afterwards. Were getting the style the manager wants but we have not got the consistency. Whats helped Klopp is that the squads best moments have come in big games. They have beaten Leicester, Manchester City and Manchester United at Anfield since Christmas.There can be seen as pointers to the potential of Klopps methods. Hes improved Dejan Lovren and improved Emre Can, said Jamie Carragher. I think hes improved Lallana too. The ex-Liverpool defender is among those insisting that Klopp can only be properly judged once hes had a pre-season and a summer transfer window in which to mould the side. Jurgen Klopp says his Liverpool side are learning to become winners To be a winner, you have to learn, insisted Klopp afterwards. You get a few knocks - we have had a few this season - but we are on the right track. If you only look at results you will say something is wrong, but there is not a lot wrong, we can build on this.For now, hints and glimpses are what we are dealing in. If Klopp can get Liverpool to produce some more of them against the club at which he made his name, Borussia Dortmund, in Thursdays Europa League quarter-final first-leg, then the current optimism could develop into something rather more significant than stable next season.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Raptors have traded forward Steve Novak along with a second-round pick to the Utah Jazz in exchange for guard Diante Garrett - who will then be waived.TORONTO – The visitors clubhouse at Fenway Park is a difficult place to hide. Its cozy confines create an awkward dynamic in which players navigate their way around pillars, couches and assembled media. Its also difficult for coaches and their protégés to find a place to chat away from the watchful eyes of onlookers. Such was the case last Wednesday when young outfielder Kevin Pillar was spotted sitting with hitting coach Kevin Seitzer at the latters cramped locker stall. The discussion lasted at least 20 minutes. It was underway when the media horde went into John Gibbons office for the daily pregame briefing and hadnt finished by the time the manager had concluded his daily séance. At the time, Pillar was hitting .143 since his recall from Triple-A Buffalo. He was jumpy in the batters box and routinely going after bad pitches out of the strike zone. "I got in the cage with him, I wanted to talk to him," Pillar told TSN.ca. "I think I had two at-bats against (Felix) Doubront, someone I felt comfortable against, struck out, grounded out and those were my only two at-bats of the game and I was pretty upset that night. I knew I wanted to talk to him." Seitzer approached Pillar in the batting cage and asked him how things were going. Pillar answered truthfully and Seitzer told the 25-year-old to find him later that afternoon. Pillar went to his locker and jotted down a series of notes he wanted to pass on to his coach. "Mostly about how maybe my struggles last year carried over here a little bit," said Pillar. "When I got called up this time I felt super comfortable. I was hitting real well in Triple-A. It was that I was hitting well. I just felt comfortable; I was confident and I knew I was ready to come up here this time. I felt like I was starting that downward spiral again of being up here and feeling bad for myself and not understanding why Im not performing and why Im changing things I did down there just because Im in the big leagues." The discussion that ensued revolved around Pillars approach. He needed to get back to being aggressive early in the count. If he got the pitch he was looking for, give it a rip. Seitzer still holds the piece of paper Pillar gave him. "He told me at some point down the road were going to go back and look at it and well be able to tear it up," said Pillar. "Its been about a week since then. Hopefully its in the past." On the day after the sit down Pillar started as the Jays beat Red Sox ace Jon Lester by a score of 7-2. He went 3-for-4 with a run scored. Including that game, hes 7-for-13 (.538) with two doubles in five games. "When Im ready to hit from pitch one then I start getting my timing down, I start seeing the fastball, I start recognizing the breaking balls that are up in the zone, the good ones to hit," said Pillar. "When Im passive up there is when I start second-guessing, Im not really seeing the ball, Imm swinging before I recognize what pitch it is. Nike Air Max 90 Fake Kaufen. " Pillar has been the right-handed half of an effective platoon with Anthony Gose. The two have provided offence and plus-defence in the absence of Colby Rasmus, whos been on the disabled list since May 13 with right hamstring tightness. NAVARRO PLAYING IN PAIN Dioner Navarro was back in the starting lineup less than 24 hours after suffering a bruised left index finger. He was hurt in the fifth inning of Tuesday nights win over the Rays when Jose Molinas bat smacked Navarros hand on a follow through. "I missed a few days with the quad thing and I cant be sitting here and watching the game," said Navarro. "I tested it this morning and I feel good enough and I let them know I was ready to play today." Navarro keeps a bat in his apartment and took some dry swings before coming to the ballpark. He wore a splint for the remainder of Tuesdays game, which forced him to swing the bat with the injured finger straightened out. "I just love to play, man," said Navarro. "I love to play. I kind of put myself in the situation where I want to be again, you know playing after being a back up the last three years and now Ive got this opportunity and its been such a wonderful experience being around these guys." SETBACK FOR SANTOS? Reliever Sergio Santos, on the disabled list since May 10 with a right forearm strain, wont throw from flat ground again until possibly Sunday after experiencing a problem during his Tuesday session. Santos and his skipper describe the issue differently. "It got a little tender," said manager John Gibbons. "So we backed him off a bit. Thats a little bit of a setback." "I wouldnt call it a big, big setback," said Santos. "When I got out to 110 (feet) just stepping on it a little bit, didnt hurt, wasnt painful, just backing off for a day, resting it and then throwing again." JANSSEN GETS NIGHT OFF Closer Casey Janssen has appeared in nine games in 17 days since his return from a strained oblique. He missed most of spring training with stiffness in the back of his pitching shoulder and then injured his oblique on March 28 in Montreal. With the Blue Jays winning almost everyday, hes been called upon more than expected and was feeling sore on Wednesday morning. He wasnt available for Wednesday nights game. "Just sore, general soreness," said Janssen. "Got back and ran the gauntlet a little bit here. Just going to try to steal a day here; hopefully they dont need it and anyway the guys down there can do my job anyway." This isnt the first time Janssen has been unavailable since his return. He appeared in back to back games on May 20-21 and wouldnt have pitched under any circumstance on May 22. He then appeared in the game on May 23 and wasnt available on May 24. Janssen is converted each of the eight save opportunities hes had this season. ' ' '
