Transfer watch reset

Some of this stuff is a couple of days old, but Matt was on a mini-vacation and I was at a music festival or recovering most of the weekend so we’re going to hit some stuff up here in one fell swoop.

As I posted late last week, forward Omar Salgado, who is currently on the books (but not playing) at UANL in Mexico, has been loaned to the Tampa Bay Rowdies of NASL. With the Rowdies, he’ll reunite with his former U-20 coach, Thomas Rongen. With Salgado, Fred Adu, and Gale Agbossoumonde, the Rowdies are basically a US fan fiction team.

Cesar “The Joker” Romero, who did unspeakable, nasty things to the Armenia Premier League last year, has swapped out the Caucasus for the Balkans and joined FK Vardar of FYR Macedonia. Vardar is the three-time reigning champion of the Macedonian league. They’re still biggest fish in the small pond, although the pond is slightly bigger as Macedonia has the 40th ranked league in UEFA, eight spots ahead of Armenia’s. Vardar has already been eliminated from Champions League play, although I believe Romero’s qualifying appearance cap-tied him out of that regardless.

I sort of caught this Friday afternoon, but Aron Johannsson caused a stir with reports that linked him heavily to MLS. There was further speculation that it might be Real Salt Lake, with the general consensus being that Aron wanted too much money. Now, there is a report that Werder Bremen has made a bid that AZ rejected. At this point I’d like to see at least a few American attacking players in Europe, so I hope the Werder Bremen report is true and winds up being a deal.

Herculez Gomez tweeted just this this afternoon:

Sporting Kansas City holds his MLS rights offering him a new deal back in the fall of 2009, but there’s been more rumors circulating that it will be in fact be the NASL (the Cosmos specifically).

Finally, more late news has Emerson Hyndman receiving interest from clubs in Spain and Germany. The 19 year-old had a strong start to last year, while his minutes dropped off and he got injured he clearly still has a bright future. His contract is apparently up next summer which may explain why Fulham is considering parting with him.

Xolos

 

After an impressive showing at the U20 World Cup this summer, Paul Arriola is looking to break through this season with Club Tijuana’s first team. He’s off to a great start after scoring his first of the season Tuesday night. His 36th minute goal gave the Xolos the early lead vs. Zacatepec in Copa MX opener. Tijuana would win it 2-1 and sit atop Group 5 after one round (highlights).

The Copa Libertadores Final got underway on Wednesday night. Unfortunately Gringo Torres didn’t see the field in this one, but Tigres did keep an all-important clean sheet at home in the 1st leg vs. River Plate. It ended 0-0, giving Tigres a fighting chance heading to Argentina for the conclusion next week.

Ethan Horvath and Molde FK got a solid result Wednesday in the 1st leg of the UEFA Champions League Third Qualifying Round. He made one save along the way to a 1-1 draw at Croatian power Dinamo Zagreb. Molde hopes to make that away goal count heading into next week’s home leg (highlights).

In Europa League qualifying, Aron Johannsson made a 45-minute substitute appearance Thursday for AZ Alkmaar. AZ won the 1st leg 2-0 over Istanbul Başakşehir, and look to be in good position to advance to the Playoff Round.

It remains to be seen where Gedion Zelalem spends the upcoming season. Meanwhile, he produced another batch of YouTube and Vine-worthy highlights this week with the Arsenal U19s in South Africa. His 30-yard thread-the-needle through-ball is must-see, and he added a cheeky penalty conversion to boot. Arsenal U19s got the win, 4-2 over Celtic U19s (highlights).

And DeAndre Yedlin was back in an MLS stadium for the first time in a while. This time with Tottenham Hotspur as they took on the MLS All-Stars. DeAndre played 26 minutes off the bench as Spurs dropped a 2-1 decision against his former league-mates.

Omar Salgado has been loaned to the Tampa Bay Rowdies
   July 30, 2015 (8:06 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post
 

Omar Salgado, a former #1 overall MLS draft pick who sort of disappeared at Vancouver and was later kinda-sorta sold to Tigres, will be returning Stateside this fall. He’s been loaned to the Tampa Bay Rowdies for the NASL fall season.

The 21 year-old has played fewer than 1500 league minutes in his career, and he hasn’t played at all in nearly a year. With the Rowdies, he’ll be reunited with his former U-20 coach, Thomas Rongen, who is apparently out to reclaim every failed US prospect (see also: Fred Adu and Gale Agbossoumonde).

Gedion Zelalem is currently down in South Africa with one of Arsenal’s youth teams and he had a nice day against Celtic on Wednesday.  Let’s first start off with this dirty assist.

Then later in the match, he scored from the penalty spot with this lovely attempt.

So yeah, he is good at soccer.

Andi Herzog calls in 28 players for College Identification training camp
   July 29, 2015 (8:27 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

As we get closer to Olympic qualifying in October, Andi Herzog has called in 28 college players in effort to try and identify some more players for the pool.  The camp will run August 5-8 in Carson, California.

GOALKEEPERS (4): Wade Hamilton (Cal Poly; Murrieta, Calif.), Jonathan Klinsmann (Cal; Newport Beach, Calif.), Kendall McIntosh (Santa Clara; Santa Rosa, Calif.), Andrew Tarbell (Clemson; Mandeville, La.).

DEFENDERS (9): Jonathan Campbell (North Carolina; Greensboro, N.C.), Alex Crognale (Maryland; Gahanna, Ohio), Chase Gasper (UCLA; Alexandria, Va.), Tomas Hilliard-Arce (Stanford, Matthews, N.C.), Grant Lillard (Indiana; Hinsdale, Ill.), Jakob Nerwinski (Connecticut; Lawrenceville, N.J.), Chris Odoi-Atsem (Maryland; Mitchellville, Md.), Sam Strong (UCSB; Santa Barbara, Calif.), Brandon Vincent (Stanford; Valencia, Calif.).

MIDFIELDERS (10): Corey Baird (Stanford; Escondido, Calif.). Andrew Brody (Lousiville; Orlando, Fla.), Mael Corboz (Maryland; Green Brook, N.J.), Niko Hansen (New Mexico; Sacramento, Calif.), Ian Harkes (Wake Forest; Fairfax, Va.), Patrick Hodan (Notre Dame; Brookfield, Wisc.), James Moberg (Washington; Winsdor, Calif.), Adam Najem (Akron; Clifton, N.J.), Keegan Rosenberry (Georgetown; Ronks, Pa.), Jake Rozhansky (Virginia; Germantown, Md.).

FORWARDS (5): Michael Gamble (Wake Forest; Columbia, Md.), Connor Maloney (Penn State; Harrisburg, Pa.), Alex Muyl (Georgetown; New York, N.Y.), Paul Salcedo (Cal; Inglewood, Calif.), Mac Steeves (Providence; Needham, Mass.).

Slightly related, Will decided to put up a preseason Top 10 goalkeepers for each class in the NCAA.

Also in U-23 news, they will head to Preston North End to take on England’s U-21 team during the September international week.

For the Three Lions, it is their first game after this summer’s trip to the Euro Finals in Czech Republic ended with a group stage exit and a chance to re-focus on the forthcoming term.

“It will be a good test for us as this will be a USA team which is a little bit older and wiser and who will be making up their Olympic team for Rio next year,” revealed head coach Gareth Southgate.

“We played the States at U20 level last season and we’ve managed to have a few fixtures against them in other age groups which have all been really good fixtures.

“They’ve got a really good programme now and we’re trying to play teams from outside of Europe throughout our age groups, so we’re expecting a hard game and one which will help us prepare for the trip to Norway a few days later.”

PaulTorres

 

Norway’s second division is the home of this edition’s headliner, where Paul Torres was the hero for Sandnes Ulf. The former DC United academy midfielder scored his first of the season in a big moment. His 89th minute goal Sunday gave his club a dramatic 2-1 win over Bryne. After a long ball from the back bounced in the box, Paul was there to pounce, took a touch to his left, and tucked the winner around the keeper. 2nd-place Sandnes Ulf won its fifth straight and closed within five points of the top of the OBOS-Ligaen table (highlights).

It was opening weekend in Germany’s 2.Bundesliga, where Andrew Wooten got off to a strong start. His 41st minute goal gave SV Sandhausen the lead, and proved to be the eventual game-winner in a 3-1 away decision at Eintracht Braunschweig (highlights).

In Belgium, Kenny Saief converted a 45th minute penalty for K.A.A. Gent. His goal leveled things at 1-1, and that’s how it ended for a season opening draw at Westerlo (highlights).

Dion Acoff scored his fifth of the season in Iceland’s second division. His 90th minute strike was the icing on the cake in Thróttur Reykjavík’s 4-1 win over fellow Yank Joey Spivack’s BÍ/Bolungarvík (highlights).

Ryan Johnson Laursen had an assist Sunday for Esbjerg. His 85th minute helper cut his club’s deficit to 2-1, but it wasn’t enough to fend off Danish Superliga giants FC København.

The Liga MX Apertura season kicked off over the weekend. Miguel Ibarra made his debut for Club León following his offseason transfer from the NASL’s Minnesota United. He made a 12 minute sub appearance in a bizarre 3-1 win vs. 8-man Santos Laguna.

Rubio Rubin continued a strong preseason camp for FC Utrecht. He scored a 77th minute goal Monday to seal a 2-0 win in a friendly vs. FC Lienden.

Meanwhile, Geoff Cameron continues to move around the pitch in preseason for Stoke City. After a stint at center back last week, Geoff went 90 in central midfield Saturday in a 2-0 loss at Brentford.

Various Bundesliga kits for 2015-16

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, but here is a bunch of 2015-16 kits for Bundesliga teams featuring Americans this season.

There has been some talk that Julian Green could be headed out on loan this season, but he will have plenty of options of jerseys if he sticks around Bayern Munich (order – home/road/third).

 

While David Yelldell hasn’t played a league game for Bayer Leverkusen’s senior team since joining the team in 2011-12, he is still on their roster.  And Bayer Leverkusen have three options of kits for 2014-15 (order – home/road/third).

 

Borussia Dortmund has a few Americans throughout their system in Joe Gyau, Junior Flores and Christian Pulisic.  They also have three different jerseys for 2015-16 (order – home/road/third).

 

Borussia Mönchengladbach and Kappa always have “interesting” kits and this year will be no different for Fabian Johnson and Mario Rodriguez (order – home/road).

 

Timothy Chandler is in his second season with Eintracht Frankfurt and they will have a pinstripe shirt much like the Frankfurt team from 1972-73 (order – home/road).

 

John Brooks and Hertha Berlin will have pretty standard Hertha-like jerseys for this season (order – home/road/third).

 

Alfredo Morales’ Ingolstadt will be playing in the Bundesliga for the first time in club history and they only have a home jersey out right now.

 

While Hoffenheim no longer have Fabian Johnson or Danny Williams, Russell Canouse is still with the club and Lotto went a little crazy with their three kits (order -home/road/third).

 

While Bobby Wood never made it to Stuttgart, Jerome Kiesewetter is still with the club and Puma has three options for them in 2015-16 (order – home/road/third).

 

Terrence Boyd is slowly working his way back from ACL surgery and RB Leipzig have some pretty basic jerseys waiting for him upon his return this season (order – home/road).

 

Bobby Wood’s new home for 2015-16 is with Union Berlin.  Union Berlin switched things up this year going with Macron over kit supplier Uhlsport (order – home/road).

 

And finally, Freiburg boast Caleb Stanko, Eric Lickert, Ethan Sonis and now Zack Steffen among their various teams.  And they have three Nike kits for this season (order – home/road/third).

 

Have a favorite of the bunch?  Think one is really, really ugly?  As for my own taste, I like Bayern Munich Road, Dortmund Third, Eintracht Frankfurt Home and Freiburg Home.  I dislike basically all the Hoffenheim ones and Borussia Mönchengladbach Road.
