    TOO GOOD TO WASTE?
    Surely Josh Brownhill would rather have scored this screamer in a league game - but's it well worth a look from last night's friendly between his Preston side and Premier League new boys Burnley.

    GERRARD'S WORST THREE MONTHS
    Fair to say the summer has not been kind to Steven Gerrard, who saw his mistake cost Liverpool the chance of the Premier League title and then had to suffer captaining England during their less than positive World Cup campaign. 
    I don't have to watch something like that to go through the pain again and again. I've been through the pain in the dressing room afterwards and in the weeks and months after it. It's probably been the worst three months of my life. But you have to accept it happened, you can't change it. It (the slip) was cruel. I haven’t lost my man at a set-piece, I haven't missed a penalty or made a bad pass or a mistake. Every person on the planet slips at some point in their life, whether it is on the stairs or the floor. For me it happened at a bad moment.
    Liverpool fans will hope to see more smiles from Steven Gerrard this season

    SHAW SURE HE'LL BE FIT
    Luke Shaw accepts criticism of him by United boss Louis Van Gaal was not wide of the mark, but he's determined to get fit by the start of the Premier League season and was pleased to get 45 minutes under his belt in the penalty shootout win over Inter Milan on Tuesday.

    GOOD MORNING ONE AND ALL
    It's a bright Wednesday across most of the country, according to my friends at the Met Office, and there should be plenty to keep us going today. It's day four at the Ageas Bowl, where England will look to roll out the last couple of India wickets and then turn the screw with either bat or ball. In Glasgow, there is plenty more action across the sports in the Commonwealth Games, and you can expect one or two transfer lines to emerge during the day as well. Stay with us for all the news as it breaks, and don't forget to send us your views using #SST on Twitter.
