The 718
Enjoying an IPA at my desk and Steve Cooper's ugly mug on the big screen in my deserted midtown office. Forest lead Sheffield United 1-0 just before half. Forest were dominant early but they've let the Blades get their wits about them.

Kane had an early assist to Leroy Sane in the Bundesliga opener against Werder Bremen. Expect a lot of Bayern updates from me throughout the season.

some dude bloods Matt Turner in his first home outing for his new club.

Got to see Turner up close at the Arsenal-Everton game in Baltimore last summer. Good dude. Wish all good things for him.

Forest really are the Jekyll-Hyde team. They can go from graceful to cloddish in an instant.

Turner just made a great save.

Sheffield Utd looking the better side suddenly.

I have been advocating for Spurs to sell Kane since he wanted to go to City a couple years ago. I was happy Spurs finally got the deal done for a big fee. I still think it was the right move.

But damn it I still felt awful watching the clip of Kane scoring in a Bayern jersey.

His assist was vintage Kane to Son. Except it was to Leroy Sane, his transition has been seanless.

Bournemouth’s new style is awesome. They’re going to be a very entertaining side all year.

But what the fuck Trent?

Was that some kind of ring around the rosey routine with VVD in the middle?

It’s amazing how shit the PL official app is. Out walking the dog and nothing updates, not the game scores or the fantasy. A bunch of high school kids coujd do better

Endo is so desperately needed for this team just to get everyone back in position. Gakpo upfront in place of Jota, MacAllister in Gakpo’s role today and Endo in would improve three positions.

Bournemouth defensively haven't been bad at all, but that was an unlucky bounce and lethal finish.

Don’t know what this commentator is talking about. Yes the going down was exaggerated but there was clear contact and sometimes you need to do that to get the call

Good save, unlucky for the keeper that it goes straight back to Mo.

I think that falls into the category of not taking wild swings with your leg on a player in the corner of the penalty box for no reason at all. Don’t give the ref the chance to blow his whistle.

For as much as I wanted Jota to get more time towards the end of last season he hasn’t looked very dangerous at all yet this season
