Re: Ongoing 2018-19 Premier League Thread

Post by Bluejaygrad03 » Wed Dec 19, 2018 10:34 pm

All of the matches in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, which begins the first week of January, will be streamed here in the U.S. online through ESPN+: http://worldsoccertalk.com/2018/12/17/e ... ric-first/

This is big news as when Fox previously had the rights they'd only be able to carry 10 of the 32 matches. Granted the reason they carried so few was because the FA would only produce those 10 and the lower level teams that hosted matches are more reliant on ticket sales and less on TV revenue than the Premier League sides.

Things were looking good for Everton in that 1st half until the disallowed goal for Calvert-Lewin. Now things have started to unravel with Spurs up 1:3 at half.

Everton get dominated at home 2:6 by Spurs. Two goals apiece by Son and Kane along with goals by Deli Alli and Christian Eriksen for Tottenham. Lone goals for Toffees were scored by Theo Walcott and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

With the win, Spurs are now within 2 points of Manchester City for second in the table. With the loss, Everton falls to 11th in the table, tied with West Ham on points.

Toffees' next two matches will be on the road, with the first of those at Burnley on Boxing Day.

Everton lose 1:0 today at the Amex against Brighton & Hove Albion. Toffees hit the woodwork a couple of times and just couldn't get one past the goalkeeper.

Everton return to action on New Year's Day at Goodison Park versus Leicester City.

Pulisic to Chelsea official, for $73M, becoming the most expensive US soccer player in history, and the 15th most expensive in Premier League history, and 25th most expensive in global football history. While he officially joins Chelsea, he will remain with Borussia Dortmund on loan through the current season. Pulisic has 3 goals in 18 appearances across all competitions, with one goal each in Bundesliga, Champions League, and the domestic cup. Dortmund currently sit 6 points clear atop the Bundesliga table, and will face Spurs in the CL R16, after winning their group with Atletico Madrid, Monaco, and Club Brugge.

Pulisic becomes the third American player on Chelsea's senior squad, joining Academy graduate Kyle Scott (although he was born in England), and Matt Miazga, who transferred to the club from NY Red Bulls in 2015.

All three are on loan for the season, with Scott at Telstar in the Dutch Eredivisie, and Miazga with Nantes in France's Ligue 1. Scott has 2 goals in 14 appearances, and Miazga with 8 league appearances.

City keeps Liverpool within reach with their 2:1 win at Etihad yesterday.

Updated PL table:

Updated Championship table:

It's a Cup weekend, but next week there are some really interesting matchups on both ends of the table in the Championship:

Leeds United vs. Derby County
West Brom vs. Norwich City
Birmingham City vs. Middlesbrough
Sheffield United vs. QPR

Ipswich Town vs. Rotherham

Ipswich Town is typically an upper division team in the Championship. A loss to Rotherham would really put them in a hole.

Spurs roll Tranmere 7:0 today, but it took them awhile to get going-they didn't score their first until late in the first half, and that was the halftime score. But then they added 3 goals in the first 13 minutes of the second half, and then another spurt of 3 goals from minutes 71-82. Llorente had a hat trick for Spurs.

I think I saw that Kane got pulled when they were up 0:6.

Actually, the opposite, he came on late and scored the last at 82'

Notable early January transfer window moves:

Chelsea signed Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund, and loaned him back for the balance of the seaon.

Bournemouth loaned out Jemaine Defoe to Rangers in Scotland for the remainder of the season.

Huddersfield Town added Jason Puncheon on loan from Crystal Palace, and signed England U19 defender Jaden Brown on a free transfer from Tottenham Hotspur.

Leicester City Vicente Iborra signed with Villarreal of La Liga on a free transfer.

Manchester City Sold Brahim Diaz to Real Madrid on a free transfer.

Tottenham Sold Jaden Brown to Huddersfield Town.

West Ham United signed free agent Samir Nasri, who ends an 18-month doping ban. Nasri last played with Turkish club Antalyaspor, but only made 8 appearances with them, before both parties agreed to end the contract in January 2018 in the midst of the doping investigation.

Crystal Palace loaned Jason Puncheon to Huddersfield Town for the remainder of the season.

Everton defeat Bournemouth 2:0 today. While Bournemouth had the better chances, it was the Toffees who got both the scores in this one with Kurt Zouma scoring in the 61st minute and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring in injury time in the 2nd half. It is the first points that Everton have got in a Premier League match since Boxing Day and only their second win in their last 9 Premier League matches.

Everton next plays Saturday at Southampton.

The last month was brutal for them. But he is still good enough they could have salvaged the season. Someone will pick him up quickly, I would presume. I still would have preferred he get the US job.

In Championship news, Nottingham Forest hired Martin O'Neill yesterday. O'Neill played for Forest from 1971-81 and was a key part of their European Cup (the predecessor to the Champions League) championship teams in 1979 and 1980 under manager Brian Clough.
