As the rain came pouring down across England, Bournemouth’s newest signing was unveiled to the fans as Tyler Adams was showcased to the crowd.
At a dreary Vitality Stadium, Adams smiled and waved to the supporters at the ground he’ll now call home after a move from the recently relegated Leeds United.
The United States’ captain won’t be on the pitch for the Cherries any time soon as he continues to rehab and recover from a hamstring injury he picked up last season.
But luckily for him, the prognosis isn’t as bad as once previously thought – and Adams could return to playing sometime next month.
Bournemouth will be hoping that his addition will provide stability and improvement after going 0-1-2 in their first three matches of the season.
Tyler Adams was presented to Bournemouth fans for the first time before a match vs. Spurs
Matt Turner (yellow) made seven saves but was let down by Nottingham Forest’s defense
Forest went up 2-0 early, but a red card and a game-winning Bruno Fernandes penalty sealed the three points for Manchester United in front of their home fans at Old Trafford
That includes Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham – which now sees Spurs go towards the top of the league.
Adams reflected on the loss with a social media post, saying, ‘Not the result we wanted but just wanted to say thank you to the fans and the staff for an amazing reception. I promise to give my all for you guys.’
Elsewhere across Europe, it was a generally tough day for the Americans playing in top flight leagues.
Starting goalkeeper Matt Turner made seven saves, but was let down by his defense as his Nottingham Forest side surrendered an early lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United.
After Forest went up 2-0 inside of ten minutes, Christian Eriksen bringing it back within one for United before the half hour mark.
But in the second half, the Forest defense failed to mark Bruno Fernandes – who slipped a pass through to Casemiro who nodded it home to tie the match.
Forest then faced two hammer blows when captain Joe Worrall was sent off and later, Man United won a penalty.
Fernandes stepped up and converted it, delivering the final blow in the 3-2 victory.
Brendan Aaronson was sent off to an early shower after being shown two yellow cards
But Aaronson’s Union Berlin side were able to manage a 4-1 win away to SV Darmstadt
Over in Germany, Union Berlin’s Brenden Aaronson had a nightmare start to his side’s match against SV Darmstadt.
The New Jersey native was booked early on with a rough challenge on Darmstadt’s Fabian Nurnberger.
But he was booked again with a second yellow in just the 21st minute in a poor case of judgement by referee Patrick Ittrich.
After blowing the play dead, Aaronson slowly kicked the ball to one of his teammates harmlessly. Ittrich called Aaronson over and pulled out a second yellow card – sentencing the former Leeds United man to an early shower.
Fortunately for his team, the high-flying Union Berlin went on to earn a resounding 4-1 victory.
