Soccer Thoughts 8/18


1.The Spurs started off slow but, then dominated Fulham  the 2nd half for a 3-1 win, the upset of the day was Bournemouth beating West Ham 2-1 at West Ham. The Spurs are at Manchester United Monday 3pm, Fulham hosts Burnley Saturday 10am, West Ham is at Arsenal Saturday 10am and Bournemouth hosts Everton Saturday 10am.

2.Chelsea started off fast then they let Arsenal back into the game after being down 2-0, Arsenal made it 2-2 before, Chelsea scored a 2nd half goal to win 3-2, Chelsea had Arsenal down early and let them back into it, while for Arsenal they could have folded down 2-0 and didnt, something to take forward then they host West Ham next Saturday 10am at the Emirates while Chelsea goes to Newcastle next Sunday 11am.

Serie A:

1.Juventus is lucky to win 3-2, they were down 2-1 with about 25 mins left, then they started to play better, they will be very good, while Chievo was tough today they are not in Juve’s league. Juventus hosts Lazio next Saturday at Noon on ESPN2 while Chievo is at Fiorentina next Sunday 230pm on ESPN +

2.This was close as expected but, in the end Napoli came out of the Olimpico will all 3 points against Lazio in a close 2-1 win. Lazio does not have an easy task next week as they face Juventus at Noon on Saturday in the home debut of Cristiano in Turin while Napoli hosts Milan also on Saturday at 230pm

Ligue 1:

1.PSG started off slow but, took over and won 3-1 at Guingamp, PSG hosts Angers next Saturday 11am.

La Liga:

1.Celta Vigo drew 1-1 against Espanyol, a deserving tie with 2 even teams. Celta is at Levante Monday 215pm while Espanyol hosts Valencia Sunday 1215pm.

2.Real Sociedad was able to go to the Madrigal and get all 3 points, this is not a good start for the Yellow Submarine (Villarreal) as this is a game you need to win.Villarreal heads to Sevilla next Sunday at 215pm while Real Sociedad is at Leganes Friday 415pm.

3.Barcelona’s win did not start of easy being tied 0-0 at the half,but, Barcelona took over and dominated a weaker Alaves side in the 2nd half to an easy 3-0 win. Barca now plays at Real Vallodolid Saturday 415pm while Alaves hosts Real Betis Saturday 1215pm.

Sunday’s games of note-

830am-Manchester City vs Huddersfield Town NBCSN-The defending Champs make their home debut

11am-Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United-This could be a good one

Noon-Torino vs Roma ESPNEWS

230pm-Parma vs Udinese/Sassuolo vs Inter ESPN +- I had Milan and Genoa as the best game, but, with the bridge collapse that is not happeing as Genoa did not want to travel to Milan, so there are 2 games of interest, one is Parma’s return to Serie A they were docked 5 points due to bribery in a game against Spezia, when forward Emanuele Calaio  tried to bribe Spezia  so Parma could get automatic promotion but, seeing them back in awesome no matter what the case, while Sassuolo is no walk over and they will give Inter all they can handle in what should be a good game.
