California. Duh.
No matter how bad your day is going, it's better than the Southampton fans that had to sit through that game.

Scottsdale, AZ.
Ipswich fans are rejoicing in the streets. Southampton look like a bigger shambles than Watford...no point in sacking the manager just yet, back to back games away to Man City coming up.

yeah, so after carefully weighing stats, I chose Callum Wilson over Vardy for that third striker spot on my FPL team...

Good back and forth start at Hillsborough. Even though Wednesday are at home, I’m a bit surprised that they’re on the front foot...Leeds usually controls the pressure while Monk likes to counter. Flipped around to start here.

On ESPN+ for all who want a bit of Yorkshire fun.

What a blast by Pascal Gross. Probably should have been saved but damn that was a laser.

Gross is an interesting player. He's near the top of the league in chances created, but he's sure slow afoot.

At any rate, 1-0 to the Albion.

Pickford must have thought he was playing Liverpool on that free kick.

Everton equalize as the announcer says they haven’t scored from a corner all season

VAR penalty to Brighton.
Keane stepped on Connolly's foot. Connolly went down and immediately grabbed his shinguard in "pain."

His foot was tromped on, but if he was actually injured he would have grabbed his foot, not his damn shinguard.

That was kind of harsh. PK was called. VAR overturns and they give out a yellow.

To me, it looked like play should've never been stopped.

Pulisic is now second American with PL hat trick, joining Dempsey.

Probably the best lineup by Emery this season:

Lacazette
Aubameyang Ceballos Pepe
Xhaka Guendouzzi
Tierney Luiz Sokratis Chambers
Leno

Still a few improvements to be desired, but hopefully they crush it and we see more of this going forward.

At least VAR gets it right. Goes from a yellow card and a dive to a penalty for Palace.
Exact same situation happened last week and Arsenal didn't get the penalty.. there was less contact here where there was actual contact last week.

I didn’t see the play last week, but there was contact on Zaha. I was astonished that Atkinson showed him a yellow.

WTF - Zaha and Pepe have some proper shoulder to shoulder tussling, no foul, two seconds later Sokratis gets breathed on and it's a foul.

Edit: Where did i get Saha from. Fulham flashbacks.

I know the inevitable 2 goals in the last ten minutes is coming from Liverpool, but an impressive half from Spurs given how weak they have looked this season. Can this be the game everything turns around?
