3 way tie atop the PL with Man City, Chelsea, and Liverpool all sitting on 20 points, separated only by goal differential. Spurs and Arsenal both nipping at their heels, sitting at 18 points a piece. Bournemouth and Wolves both having very promising starts to their campaigns, at 16 and 15 points respectively. 

 

On the other end, Cardiff and Fulham are both having a rude welcome back to the PL. 3 clubs still vying for their first win after 8 (Cardiff, Newcastle, Huddersfield).

Didn't think Liverpool would live up to the pre-season hype, but I've watched them a couple of times and they've been as good as advertised.

 

I think advanced stats say City are still better than other teams but it's still early days.

They certainly have been. Their past 4 have been less impressive, but they've also played Chelsea twice, Man City, and Napoli in the Champions League.

Ream on the bench today.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Tim on the bench again today as Fulham travel 1.5 miles from Craven Cottage to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea.

Tim Ream starts today @ ManU.
Entire defense is shambolic, as FFC yield 3 in first half.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Fulham is rather fortunate that theres so much congestion near the bottom of the table this season. Theyve probably been the worst team in the league so far, certainly defensively. But, a couple good results and they could still get to safety.

Chelsea knocks off City 2-0 and Liverpool now sits alone atop the table. January 3rd is shaping up to be a big one.

Leave it to Newcastle to get Fulham their first clean sheet of the season. Ream went the full 90 and I thought put in a solid effort.

Shaping up to be a really tight race to the finish this season. Pretty cool. City will be closer to 3rd than top of the table if Spurs win tomorrow.

Saw the interview with the coach after Chelsea's game today, didn't really seem to care/know the transfer happened.
