Ream, Fulham relegated from Premier League

1 Shares

Fulham will be playing in the second tier of English football next season.

The London club was guaranteed relegation from the English Premier League¬†on Tuesday after a 4-1 road loss at Watford. Tim Ream returned to Fulham’s starting XI but was unable to help Scott Parker’s side earn a needed point at Vicarage Road.

2018-19 has been a horrid year for Fulham, who earned promotion back to England’s top-flight last May, after defeating Aston Villa in the EFL Playoff Final.

Parker took over as caretaker manager after Claudio Ranieri was sacked in February after being on the job for two months.

Ream, 31, has made 128 combined appearances for Fulham since joining in 2015. He’s made 21 league appearances this season for Fulham but will weigh his options come summertime. He becomes the season American player relegated this season from the EPL, following Huddersfield Town’s Danny Williams.

With the loss, Fulham are 4-24-5 with 17 points earned through 33 matches.

  1. EPL teams like Fulham and Huddersfield who got promotion with such great efforts from players and coaching staffs, but the owner eventually decided not to dig deeper into their pockets to reasonably invest on quality players at key positions will face the cruel reality of relegating back to second tier Championship League one year later. At least they enjoyed or should I say, experienced one year of top flight competitions where they do not belong, unfortunately.

    • You do know that is NOT what happened with Fulham, right? They brought in over 13 players, including top flight proven talent like Andre Schurrle, Mitrovic, Seri etc. The issue is the brought in too many players and the team didn’t gel and they had the weakest defense in the league by far. Ther teams staying up who have scored less goals even though their league total is very low
