The Curious Case Of Cameron Carter-Vickers’ Loan Recall And Immediate Re-Loan

Last week, Tottenham Hotspur recalled Cameron Carter-Vickers from his season-long loan with Sheffield United. This week Tottenham sent the 20-year-old U.S. international back out on loan to another English Championship club: Ipswich Town. It’s an odd scenario, but this Carter-Vickers loan is actually a good thing for all three clubs involved.

Chelsea Has Two Players Sent Off After Dives, Wins Anyway

Chelsea had two players shown second yellow cards after being adjudged to have been guilty of simulation during their FA Cup replay against Championship side Norwich on Wednesday. Nonetheless, Antonio Conte’s side survived a 94th-minute equalizer and managed to advance 5-3 in a shootout after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The absurdity of the Chelsea vs. Norwich City replay was not about the beauty of the FA Cup, but instead the beauty of a referee who didn’t take shit from anyone, even with VAR ready to back him up.

Liverpool-Manchester City Was Everything We'd Hoped For And More

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are like siblings. Guardiola is the studious, artsy older brother. He likes Legos. He builds entire carefully-constructed cities on the living room floor. They are intricate and delicate. Klopp is the younger brother. He is a toddler. He is wearing a cape and a saucepan on his head for a helmet. He wants some Cheez-Its.To get his Cheez-Its, Klopp runs through the middle of the living room and tramples Guardiola's Lego City. At least, that's what happened on Sunday.

Harry Kane’s Goal-Scoring Exploits Take Back Seat To False Missile Launch Alarm In Hawaii

Harry Kane became Tottenham Hotspur’s all-time leading Premier League goal scorer on Saturday, scoring two second-half goals to pass Teddy Sheringham in the team’s record book. But in many parts of the world, the Harry Kane goal record in a 4-0 win over Everton took a back seat to the stunning events that took place in Hawaii on Saturday morning.

As the first half of the Tottenham vs. Everton match came to a close, those watching in Hawaii had their mornings ruined by reports of an incoming missile launch. 

Doucoure Scores With His Hand Because England Is In The Dark Ages

Abdoulaye Doucouré is one cheeky fella. The Watford midfielder took advantage of some poor refereeing and some poor decision-making from the English FA to help earn his team a point with a 2-2 draw. You see, the 90th-minute Doucoure goal vs Southampton was scored with the Frenchman’s hand. 

Yes, it’s still illegal to use your hands if you’re not the goalie. And no, England hasn’t joined the rest of the civilized world by adopting VAR. So yeah, the goal stood, and Southampton is rightly livid.
