A bit of this and that for Tuesday
   August 19, 2014 (12:42 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post
 

This weekend was a busy one with tons of players seeing the field throughout Europe.  Here is a quick rundown of how guys did over the weekend.  And as always, our goal tacker is updated with the goals from the weekend with some links to highlights to a few of them.

The big news of the weekend was the professional debut of Rubio Rubin.  Greg Seltzer also recently talked to Rubin about signing with FC Utrecht.

The other odd news of the weekend was the lack of Geoff Cameron in Stoke City’s gameday roster.  While there was first speculation that Mark Hughes was giving extra rest to Cameron and Peter Odemwingie due to the World Cup, it now looks like Cameron is wanting a transfer away from Stoke City.

This weekend also saw Brad Guzan make his 75th straight Premier League start for Aston Villa, the second-longest active streak in the Premier League behind Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet (now at 79 straight starts).

Through two games, Emerson Hyndman has completed 125 passes this season, the fourth most in the English League Championship.  And among Championship players who have attempted at least 100 passes, his 91% completion percentage is the second highest in the Championship.  And there has been a total of 1065 minutes played so far in the Championship by players under the age of 20 with Fulham accounting for 607 of those minutes (57 percent).

Aron Johannsson is going to be out another six weeks after having groin surgery to go along with his ankle surgery from last month.  It will be interesting to see who Jurgen Klinsmann calls into next month’s friendly at forward if he sticks with a European-based roster with Johannsson and Boyd both out with injuries.  Is it finally time to cap Matt Taylor?! (I am joking.)

Seattle Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer spoke about DeAndre Yedlin’s transfer last Wednesday.  The deal is done, but he won’t be transferred until a later date (since the MLS transfer window is closed and he can’t be loaned back to Seattle?).  Tottenham will “evaluate the situation” at the end of the MLS season once the MLS transfer window opens back up (and see if he can get his UK work permit), although there is a chance he stays in Seattle through the summer of 2015.

People have been asking me a lot recently about anything on Juan Agudelo.  There is nothing new to report that I know of other than he continues to train with Orlando City off and on.

Alfredo Morales and FC Ingolstadt were knocked out of the DFB Pokal by Kickers Offenbach yesterday in a penalty shootout.  Morales went the full 120 minutes and made his penalty attempt.

Will Packwood didn’t play with Birmingham City over the weekend, but he did score a goal with their U-21 team on Monday.

Tony Taylor became a free agent this summer after his contract expired with Omonia Nikosia in Cyprus.  And now the former US youth international is headed to the New England Revolution after the Revolution acquired the forward through a lottery.

ESPN’s Doug McIntyre spoke to Chicago Fire manager Frank Yallop last week and Yallop thinks the Fire are close to signing Jermaine Jones.  McIntyre’s ESPN compadre Jeff Carlisle spoke to a league source who told Carlisle that Jones would “likely” be subject to regular MLS allocation order.  I never understand MLS roster rules.  It is like they are the producers of Paradise Hotel and make up stuff as they go.

Greg Garza did not play with Tijuana last Friday after suffering a nose injury in training which required surgery.  On the Tijuana U-20 front, tilt your computer sideways to see this goal by Amando Moreno from a U-20 game from Friday.

Sticking with odd videos of goals from the weekend, here is Joey Spivack’s first goal of the season for Víkingur Ólafsvík.

Brian Straus with some words on Tim Howard and Tourette syndrome.

US Soccer confirmed the friendly against Ecuador for October 10 last week.  Brian Sciaretta ‏is hearing that US Soccer will add a second game during that international week and it will also take place in the US.

While Germany had the DFB Pokal this past weekend, Borussia Dortmund II had the off week from official games, but both Junior Flores and Joe Gyau (Gyau also scored) played with the U-23 team in a friendly against Wattenscheid last Thursday.

Brooks Lennon made his Liverpool U-21 debut last Wednesday.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s son, Jonathan Klinsmann, did a training stint with VfB Stuttgart last week.

And finally, Timothy Weah, son of the great George Weah, joined Paris Saint-Germain’s academy.  Weah has trained with the US U-14 team recently.

Last weekend gave us Emerson Hyndman’s professional debut and this weekend brought us 18-year-old Rubio Rubin’s pro debut.  Rubin got the start and went the full 90 minutes in FC Utrecht’s 2-1 win over Willem II.  Rubin was even credited with an assist on a mishit of a shot (highlights).
