A couple links for Wednesday
   September 30, 2015 (12:53 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Getting caught up on the last couple days.

Michael Bradley made his Instagram account public and he is ready for the CONCACAF Cup.  More importantly, only eight photos exist of Bradley smiling throughout the world and six can be found on this account.

Roughly 30-35% of the Rose Bowl will be US supporters come October 10.  This is an improvement over the 2011 Gold Cup Final.

According to one report out of El Salvador, Joel Aguilar will be the ref for the game.  Aguilar was the ref for the SnowClasico in 2013.

Need to get pumped up from the game?  Here is a video for you.

Nothing overly new to report on Copa America Centenario, but leaked photos of the ball have USA on them as part of the logo.

Brad Guzan made’s Premier League Team of the Weekend after recording nine saves against Liverpool.

Aron Johannsson missed Werder Bremen’s game over the weekend due to an adductor strain.

John Brooks has been missing time with Hertha Berlin due to a thigh injury and he wants to sign a contract extension with Hertha Berlin.

Tim Howard and Everton came back from a two-goal deficit to beat West Brom on Monday.  It was only the second time Everton has some back to win after trailing by 2+ goals in the Premier League era.  The other time was in 1994 against Wimbledon.

Tim Ream was featured in Fulham’s match day program for last week’s game against QPR.

Bob Bradley is doing work in Norway as Stabæk sit in second place (Europa League) with five games remaining.  And now some reports out Norway having Molde FK (league champions in three of the previous four seasons) expressing some interest in Bradley’s services.

Here is a podcast interview with Joe Gyau.

The US U-17 team won one of their games down in Mexico, 1-0, with Joe Gallardo scoring the lone goal.

And finally, Kyle Scott scored a goal with Chelsea’s U-19 team yesterday.
