  1. Goodbye

    So that brings us to the end of today's Sportsday live. Thanks for your company today and for all your fantastic contributions and 'best sportsmanship' stories.

    Don't forget we'll be back tomorrow at 08:00 BST for another day of news and views, plus all the build-up to the EFL Cup action, day one of the final round in the County Championship, and much more. Until then, it's goodbye from us!

  2. Court One roof 'on its way'


    Wimbledon has just posted a short video showing cranes looming over Court One, as work begins to, eventually, construct a retractable roof.

    It's due to be operational for the 2019 tournament.

    But will it have its own Twitter account, like the Centre Court roof?

    Of course it will.

  3. Edwards gets Hampshire board director role


    Charlotte Edwards signs autographs

    Former England Women's captain Charlotte Edwards is appointed a non-executive board director at Hampshire and the Southern Vipers, who she led to the title in the inaugural Women's Super League.

    Edwards retired from international cricket in May after a 20-year career, and is the only player - man or woman - to captain England in 200 internationals.

    She said of her latest role: "I've thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Ageas Bowl so far and I’m looking forward to working more closely with the club moving forward to help drive the development of cricket across Hampshire, alongside my role as captain of the Vipers."

  4. Davis Cup 'a bonus' for Edmund & Evans


    Great Britain's Davis Cup captain Leon Smith wants Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund to produce consistent results on tour, saying the team event is "a bonus".

    Evans, 26, and 21-year-old Edmund were part of the team whose title defence was ended by a 3-2 defeat by Argentina in Glasgow at the weekend.

    "The most important thing for Dan, Kyle and the others is doing a great job week in, week out," said Smith.

    "Davis Cup is just two, three - in a great year, four - times a year."

    Edmund and Evans have both reached career-high rankings this month.

    Edmund, ranked 54th in the world, beat top-25 players Richard Gasquet and John Isner as he reached the fourth round of the US Open.

    World number 56 Evans is yet to go beyond the third round of a major but held match point against eventual champion Stan Wawrinka at that stage before losing in five sets.

  5. Compton ready for cracking week


    Mixed feelings for Nick Compton? The Middlesex man once played for Somerset, so this week promises to be an interesting one for him. As you'll remember, Middlesex play Yorkshire at Lord's, with Somerset the third team in contention for the County Championship title. It can go either of three ways, no question, as Somerset play Nottinghamshire at Taunton.

    If you need a reminder of the points difference, it goes...

    1. Middlesex 213
    2. Yorkshire 204
    3. Somerset 203
  6. On this day …

    1999: Alan Shearer scored five goals in Newcastle's 8-0 Premier League rout of Sheffield Wednesday.

    2004: Steve Harmison became the first England player to pull out of the controversial winter tour to Zimbabwe.

    2015: Japan pulled off the biggest shock in Rugby World Cup history with a stunning 34-32 win over South Africa at the Amex Stadium in Brighton.

  7. Get Involved - best displays of sportsmanship


    Matthew Fiford: Beijing 2008, Danish sailors mast broke, before the next race Croatians gave them their boat, Denmark won the gold.

    Danny Caro: Walking when I feathered one to the wicketkeeper. And no-one appealed. Oppo bought me a pint after game.

    Christopher Dell: Has to be when Jonny Howson rescued a pigeon last season!

    The Canary did indeed rescue a pigeon during Norwich's 2-2 draw at West Ham in September 2015.

    Video caption: AIK's unique celebration of oldest fans

    An amazing story from Sweden where club side AIK paid tribute to their elderly fans by walking out with 12 senior club members before Sunday's league match against Gefle.

    Fittingly, AIK came out 1-0 winners.

  9. 'No chance of Liverpool complacency'

    EFL Cup third round, Derby v Liverpool (Tues, 19:45 BST)

    Sports editor, BBC Radio Merseyside

    Interesting listening to Jurgen Klopp – he clearly feels there’s a great quality about teams in the Championship – so there’ll be no chance of any complacency when it comes to tomorrow’s game at Derby. 

    Sometimes games like this can catch you out if the attitude isn’t right, but since Klopp came to the club, the results against lower-league clubs – whether in competition or friendlies – have been excellent. 

    Klopp will field a strong side, you can sure of that, and he’ll want to go one better than last season when they lost in the final.

  10. BreakingHughes fined £8,000


    Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has been fined £8,000 by the Football Association over the misconduct charge that followed his outburst during the 4-0 defeat by Tottenham on 10 September.

    Hughes was sent to the stands after reacting angrily to decisions made by match officials - including the fourth official.

    The Welshman admitted the charge of misconduct and accepted the "standard punishment", according to an FA statement.

    Wes Brown has a picture taken with a fan

    Blackburn Rovers manager Owen Coyle is very keen to sign former Manchester United and Sunderland defender Wes Brown, a free agent since leaving the Stadium of Light in the summer.

    Brown, 36, injured his calf during pre-season with Rovers, but has proved his fitness with the club's under-23 side and is in advanced talks with the club about a deal.

    "As soon as I get the green light from the owners that I can get that over the line, I'll pursue it vigorously," Coyle said.

    "Wes is fit and ready to play. We've had daily chats, he is an outstanding man and think he is in good shape to play now."

  12. Kane in high spirits


    Don't forget though that Tottenham hope to learn the full extent of Harry Kane's ankle injury after the striker left Sunday's win over Sunderland on crutches.

    Asked about whether a new contract for striker Romelu Lukaku (above) was in the offing, Ronald Koeman says: "The club are trying to keep him at the football club."

    Koeman also confirmed that the Belgian will miss the EFL Cup tie against Norwich to rest a toe injury but will be fit for Saturday's league game at Bournemouth.

    Striker Enner Valencia, who is on loan from West Ham, will start against Norwich.

    Meanwhile, midfielder Darron Gibson will be out for three weeks after a groin operation.

    Ronald Koeman

    Everton boss Ronald Koeman isn't having it that his unbeaten side, currently second in the Premier League, could be this season's Leicester.

    "Normally we can't win the title - Leicester last season is an exception," the Dutchman says.

    "You have the EFL Cup and the FA Cup - that's important for most of the teams.

    "If I tell you we will fight for the title, most people will say 'the man is crazy'. The big teams have much more quality."

    Etienne Capoue and Luke Shaw challenge for the ball

    Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is to have a scan on a long-standing groin injury.

    Shaw, 21, is understood to have been playing with the injury during Sunday's 3-1 defeat by Watford, after which he was criticised by manager Jose Mourinho.

    The defender, 21, returned from a broken leg at the start of the season. He has started all of United's Premier League games so far.

    More from Everton boss Ronald Koeman, previewing Tuesday's home EFL Cup third-round tie against Norwich.

    "If we look to Norwich I count them as a Premier League team and not as a Championship team."

  17. Everton news conference

    EFL Cup, Everton v Norwich (Tues, 19:45 BST)

    Everton boss Ronald Koeman is now facing the media with his side second in the Premier League after an unbeaten start to the season.

    He says the players are still adjusting to his methods after taking over in the summer, adding: "The results are helping in that process because if you win everybody is happy. That's good but we know ourselves it's only the start of the season and we need to improve. We can improve - if we want to fight for Europe.

    "We changed, we brought new players and it looks like everyone has settled down. But we need to work hard.

    "There is no reason not to be happy. The fans like it, and the fans like it most when the team is winning."

  18. Lions call-ups for Ball and Dawson


    Jake Ball

    Hampshire's Liam Dawson and Nottinghamshire's Jake Ball (pictured), who are both set to tour Bangladesh with England next month, have been named in the England Lions squad that will travel to Dubai for a training camp and matches against United Arab Emirates and Afghanistan in November and December.

    Ball has played one Test for England while Dawson has featured in a one-day international and a twenty20 for the Three Lions.

    The England and Wales Cricket Board has announced three squads as part of its 'international pathway' programme, as well as a nine-strong list of players designated overseas placements.

    It is part of a rebranded development strategy which provides opportunities in the Lions, the Young Lions, a pace programme and the overseas placements.

    Rebuilding work on and off the pitch at Everton's training ground; the team revived under Ronald Koeman after making their best start to a Premier League season as work continues on new facilities at Finch Farm.

    The mood here has been transformed to that of four months ago with Everton unbeaten this season and hoping to make it six wins a row with the visit of Norwich in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

    Ronald Koeman put out a strong side in the previous round and the same is expected again as the Toffees look to book their place in the fourth round.

    Amid the issue of Jonny Bairstow's county v country (09:07 BST entry), let's not forget outgoing Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie will be hoping to sign off with the club's third-straight County Championship title - the last time they did this was in 1968.

    Yorkshire play table-toppers Middlesex at Lord's in the final match of the season, with fellow title rivals Somerset playing Nottinghamshire.

    Gillespie said: "It’s going to be weird but fun. It’s going to be a fun week regardless because we’re watching cricket and will be involved in a race for a title. I can’t wait. I’m just so excited.

    "I love my job here, and it’s tough to walk away from something you love. But, as I’ve said, my family are back in Australia, and it’s time to put them first."
