Fulham is one of the those sides trying to snatch a chance at a Premier League place, and Tim Ream has been a huge part of that.

Ream has had a superb season for Fulham, and the team is sitting in fifth place following the impressive win.

    • For the first time in a long time Dortmund had both Ruess and Schurrle healthy and both started. They are both experienced German internationals, and Pulisic came in to replace Ruess when he went off because he’s not fully match fit. As long as Dortmund is fully healthy, Pulisic may be coming off the bench for the most part, with occasional starts.

    • That’s life when you play on a top team fighting for a Champion’s League spot in a top 4 league. He’s a midfielder on a team with 3 members of the WC champions, all of whom play his position. Gotze scored the game winning goal in the WC final four years ago and didn’t start either.

      There’s nothing wrong with playing in a less challenging league, like Liga MX or MLS. Pulisic chose a different path, but he knew what he was getting into.

      • My mistake – Gotze did start. The point still stands, though. With 3 WC winning players in the midfield, 19 year old Christian Pulisic may not start every game.

  1. Also, Erik Palmer-Brown was listed as a starter on the team sheet for KV Kortrijk Reserves in a match last Monday with Charleroi Reserves that ended 1-1. I couldn’t find any stats from the game to tell you how much he played. KVK Reserves play again on Monday against Antwerp KVK’s official twitter is where I found this info if you want to check this Monday to see if he played again. EPB was listed on KVK’s official website as being selected to travel with the club for Saturday’s match but he did not dress.

  2. Klinsmann led Hertha II to 3-1 victory in the Other Berlin Derby against Viktoria Berlin in front of a whopping crowd of 298 people. Klinsmann has started both of Hertha II’s matches since the Winter Break.

    Shaq Moore and Levante B defeated Mukwelle Akale and Villareal C in the Spanish fourth. Kiessewetter also played for Dusseldorf U23s this weekend. I note these as they were listed as not playing for top club, but did play for their clubs at lower levels.

    Livorno didn’t play this week, but I ran across this video of Joshua Perez from last week, if it doesn’t work look on Hugo Perez’s twitter from Feb. 11. Josh has some wheels but he looks tiny, he’s listed just 2 cm taller than Giovinco.
