Surprise EPL result of Week 1 (Part 1)

Watford 0-3 Brighton and Hove Albion - I don't think anyone other than Brighton fans saw this as a possibility, no matter how many realities they looked into.

Surprise EPL result of Week 1 (Part 2)

Manchester United 4-0 Chelsea - When it looks like a whooping but your goalkeeper made 7 saves, was it really?

LaLiga US rights staying with beIN through the 2023-24 season, per reports. 

Well that sucks! Any chance there's a Spanish language rights package that's separate from this?

Nope

However, there could be sub-licensing of select games.

As soon as Ashley Young had to come on I knew United would lose. Now who takes PKs, De Gea?

Absolutely ridiculous VAR call against Spurs there. I’m pro VAR aim general but it seems refs have no idea what “clear and obvious error” means. It means that if it goes to VAR, and there’s any more than like a 10% doubt, the call stands.

If they think it's even a bit of a fraction offside, they'll call it. They've done it consistently all year.

AFAIK, offsides with VAR is decided with hawk-eye technology like tennis line calls, not a referee looking at a screen and deciding wether it’s a  ‘clear and obvious’ error

This is correct. Plus, angles on screen are deceptive when shown on TV. That's why sometimes a player looks on when they're off.

The best news of this Monday morning: Bundesliga rights are headed to ESPN (mostly ESPN+) from next season.

This bit is also amazing.

The long-term agreement also includes live coverage of the season-kickoff DFL Supercup, rights to Bundesliga 2 matches, as well as on-demand surround programming such as highlights and magazine shows.

A truly Spursian effort at Brighton so far today. That Champions League beating is taking a toll.

Solksjaer doesn’t look long for this world. First match after the break is Liverpool as well. 

 

Marco Silva still might beat him to the sack though. Everton are terrible, selling Idrissa Gueye has (predictably) killed their midfield.

Danny Mills trying to say that the Super Cup is on the same level as the Community Shield, and that he’s “not sure” if what Klopp has accomplished puts him next to Liverpool’s best ever managers. 
 

Liverpool fans are given to hyperbole (see: calling Naby Keita a “generational talent”), but if you’re still trying to claim what Klopp’s done at Liverpool is somehow not impressive you’ve clearly not watched Liverpool over the last few years.
