Americans Abroad Monday Rewind: Ream, Williams and more


While Tim Ream and Danny Williams headlined the list of Boxing Day winners, the post-Christmas round of matches was generally a tough one for Americans Abroad.

Ream and Fulham had the smoothest Boxing Day experience, toppling Ipswich Town while maintaining a clean sheet. The win sees Fulham move to seventh in the Championship, seven points behind Williams and third-place Reading, who defeated Norwich City to continue their push for promotion.

The Premier League was less kind, as no Americans saw the field on Monday in the English top flight. The only American to influence proceedings was Bob Bradley, who oversaw a lopsided loss to West Ham as Swansea City drifted further down the Premier League table.

In League One, Duane Holmes saw a late appearance in a draw while Gboly Ariyibi’s 90-minute effort wasn’t enough to help Chesterfield push past Rochdale.
