A few links for Monday
   March 30, 2015 (12:04 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Here are a few links to start your week.

Aron Johannsson has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game with a toe infection.  Jordan Morris has been called in from the US U-23 team in Bosnia to replace him.

Jurgen Klinsmann told ESPN’s Doug McIntyre that he plans on calling in the Euro-based players for the June friendlies against Germany and Netherlands even though most of the European seasons end in early May and the Gold Cup is not until July.  So much for any vacation.

Normally a wing player for the US but he plays centrally at the club level, Alejandro Bedoya is willing to play wherever on the field for the USMNT.

The US finally found out its first opponent of the Gold Cup as Honduras overcame a 3-1 first leg deficit to beat French Guiana 4-3 aggregate.  The US will face Honduras at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas on July 7.

Here are highlights of the US U-23’s 5-2 win over Bosnia from Friday.  And here are some photos from training with the U-23ers.

The US U-23 team will be taking on Mexico’s U-23 team at the StubHub Center on Wednesday, April 22.  Tickets will go on sale this Thursday.  I might have to pick up a ticket for this.

The U-20 team lost their game against England’s U-21 team, 2-1, on Sunday.  Here is the game report.  Hopefully the highlights will become available in the next couple of days.

In case you missed it, Freddy Adu signed with Finnish side KuPS.  He won’t be the only American at the club as former New England Revolution defender Stephen McCarthy signed with the club in January.

Also in Finland, former Santa Clara forward Harrison Hanley signed with Mikkelin Palloilijat.  He has already played in a couple Suomen Cup matches.

Chris Tsonis was last seen in Iceland with Fjölnir last season but he is now with USL’s New York Red Bulls II.

Devann Yao scored a goal and had an assist in Neustrelitz’s 2-0 win over Greifswalder SV in the semifinals of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Regional Cup last week.

Luca de la Torre scored two goals with Fulham’s U-18 team this weekend.  Still looking for highlights of the brace.

US U-17 forward Haji Wright has trained/trialed with some teams in Europe over the last two years but it looks like he is going to sign with the New York Cosmos.

Quentin Westberg finally found a new home in Norway with Sarpsborg 08.

Caleb Stanko looks like he is getting closer to returning to the field/training after tearing his ACL in 2014.

Want some more Google-translated interviews?  Here is one with Devante Parker.

And finally, it looks like a couple Americans (Tomas Buchmiller and Samuel Strong) are on trial with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Freddy Adu signs with KuPS
   March 28, 2015 (9:09 AM) by Howie Michaels
 

When we last talked about our old friend Fred Adu, he was reportedly on his way to Sweden to sign with a club, having ended his brief time hosting at DC area nightclubs.

Sweden, Finland, it’s still Scandinavia as Adu has finally signed with someone, landing with KuPS in Finland. 7th in the Veikkausliiga each of the last two years, KuPS has been home to some OT favorites over the years. Etchu Tabe, Tyler Ruthven, and Tyler Ruthven are among the club’s illustrious list of American players. It’s also a fun name for a team.

A bunch of links randomness for Tuesday
   March 3, 2015 (12:35 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A bunch of good stuff for you on this Tuesday.

This past weekend had some action on the field.  Fabian Johnson scored his first goal with Borussia Mönchengladbach. Aron Johannsson and Tim Ream both returned from their injuries.  Roderick has you covered with everyone in The OT Report.

Want to see some highlights of the goals scored this weekend?  Here you go:  Fabian Johnson, Junior Flores, Conor O’Brien and Marc Heider.

The US U-17 team began play at the 2015 CONCACAF U-17 Championship with a 5-0 win over Cuba on Friday (highlights) followed with a 2-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago yesterday (highlights).  Joe Gallardo (four goals) and Christian Pulisic have been the US’s two best players in my non-expert opinion so far.

While the US U-20 team gets ready for the World Cup, they will face England’s U-20 team and Tottenham’s U-21 team in some friendlies at the end of the month.

One US U-20 player, Lynden Gooch, is now with English Conference Premier side Gateshead FC on loan for 28 days to get some playing time.  He already made his debut over the weekend and here is a photo him in a Gateshead jersey.

According to one report out of Germany, Jurgen Klinsmann might call up Ashton Götz for the US friendlies and camp this month even though he doesn’t have his US passport yet (he wouldn’t be able to play in the games but he could train with the team).

There were some rumors that Sebastian Lletget signed with the LA Galaxy this weekend, but his agent shot down those rumors.

It looks like Freddy Adu could be headed to Sweden to sign with a real team according to Ives Galarcep.  If true, this would be his 11th different team in his eighth different country since becoming a pro in 2004.  Over that same time, I have lived in two different apartments and have had the same job.

Continuing with the rumors, this report claims Fabian Johnson has been scouted recently by Barcelona as he is one of a few players on their list of potential fullbacks since Dani Alves’ contract ends this summer.

Jose Mourinho might want an American goalkeeper on Chelsea and apparently he is looking at Old Man Friedel among some other [non-American] veteran keepers.

According to Bild, Bobby Wood’s knee injury might not be as bad as first thought (his meniscus is not damaged as initially suspected) and he might only be out five weeks.

Tim Howard (and Everton) is the only American left in Europa League and the Toffees will face Dynamo Kyiv in the Round of 16.

Here is a recent video interview with Bob Bradley.  Speaking of Coach Sweatpants, I guess there was a rumor that he interviewed with Danish club Aalborg for their manager opening, but Greg Seltzer is hearing from a couple sources that this is not true.

Goalkeeper Brendan Moore has signed with English League One side Fleetwood Town.

Georgian-American midfielder Zourab Tsiskaridze has signed with NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions.  He was last seen with Bangkok Glass in Thailand.

Barcelona youngster Ben Lederman is currently in playing purgatory as part of the team’s injunction that retroactively disqualified many academy players.  Some guys just got cleared to play again but not Lederman.

And also thanks to Josh Deaver, I am now aware of a second American at Barcelona.  Konrad de la Fuente is a U-14 forward and he scored a goal back in early February for Barca’s Infantil A.

A couple links before the weekend
   February 13, 2015 (1:10 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A little bit of this and that before the weekend.

Roderick has you covered with the midweek edition of The OT Report.

Howie made a funny about Freddy Adu.

The USMNT fell four spots to #31 in the latest FIFA rankings.

The US will host CONCACAF qualifying for the 2016 Olympics.  It will take place October 1-13, although the host cities are unknown at this time.  The top two teams qualify for the Olympics while the third place team will face Colombia in March of 2016 for a spot.  The FIFA international window in October is between 5-13, so getting releases for some of the “better” players could happen for the second half of the tournament.

Wil Trapp talked to Andrew King about his experience at this past month’s USMNT camp.

It looks like Seb Hines is headed to Orlando City on loan.

Brad Guzan wrote some words for The Players’ Tribune about life as a Premier League goalkeeper.

LA Galaxy midfielder Juninho would be interested in playing for the US, but he would have to wait a few more years to apply for citizenship since he just got his green card in July of 2013.  So basically it would be a while.

The Irish Times has a story up about Ireland likely missing out on Shane O’Neill.

Continuing to come back from his ankle injury from last season, Zarek Valentin went 90 minutes in a preseason friendly this week.

Brian Sciaretta spoke to Nermin Crnkic, Danijal Brkovic, Cesar Romero and Jemal Johnson about playing in various leagues throughout Eastern Europe.

And finally, if you are a US Soccer twitter hipster, you are probably aware of @RobUsry.  He makes a lot of fun videos of US players and his latest is on new Borussia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic.

Freddy Adu has a new club

A bunch of links for Thursday

A few more USMNT things before moving on from yesterday’s loss.

In case you missed the game, here are the goals.  And Matthew Doyle took a quick look at the US’s attempt to play the 3-5-2.

As for some “fun” stats/facts courtesy of Paul Carr and Paul Kennedy:

* The US is now winless in five straight games for the first time since 2007.
* The US has now allowed nine goals over a three-game span for the first time since 1993.
* The US has allowed eight goals in the first 10 minutes of games since 2013 after allowing only seven such goals between 2007 and 2012.
* The US has been outscored 9-0 in the second half of its last five games.
* The US is winless in its last four games when leading at the half after going 19-0-2 in Klinsmann’s first 21 games when leading at the half.
* And finally, the US still only has one win in its last 18 games against South American teams.

One of the big non-USMNT news stories from yesterday was Sacha Kljestan signing with the New York Red Bulls.

It looks like Alejandro Bedoya is working on a new contract with Nantes.  Marc Stein’s sources say that Bedoya also has been drawing some interest from Germany, England and MLS.

The New York Times wrote some words on DeAndre Yedlin earlier this week.  And new Tottenham teammate and fellow American Brad Friedel talked about Yedlin to some UK press.

We posted yesterday in the US-Chile pre-game primer about how Gedion Zelalem is currently ineligible to play for the US, but Grant Wahl/Sunil Gulati are making it sound like the FIFA exception will go through and he will be eligible later this spring.

Also in the link above, Wahl is hearing that US U-20 center back Cameron Carter-Vickers could be training with Tottenham’s first team in the coming weeks.

Getting back to Zelalem for a second, he went the full 90 in Arsenal’s 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in UEFA Youth League action earlier this week.  Dembakwi Yomba did not dress for Atletico Madrid as it looks like he picked up some kind of knee injury.

Sticking with the youth theme, Jeff Carlisle put together his list of Top 10 US players currently under the age of 21.  His #1 is Emerson Hyndman.

Another player on that list, Julian Green, is healthy again and thinks he can learn from his loan away Bayern Munich.

Speaking of health issues, Tim Howard appears to be ahead of schedule with the rehabbing of his calf injury and could return to the field sooner than first believed.

As for another goalie, Zack Steffen talked to Brian Sciaretta about the U-20 World Cup and Freiburg.

Steffen’s U-20 teammate, Matt Miazga, is in Qatar with RB Leipzig on a training stint/trial.  He had to be subbed out of a scrimmage the other day with an injury, but New York Red Bulls manager Jesse Marsch claims it is just a knock.

Steven Goff has your monthly Freddy Adu update.

Alejandro Guido scored his first goal with Tijuana last week in Copa MX action and he followed that up with another goal in Copa MX action on Tuesday.

It looks like Tim Ream had a nice game earlier this week against Rotherham.

Remember Mike Grella?  He is currently with the New York Red Bulls as a trialist.

Ryan Adeleye was last seen in Israel with Hapoel Ashkelon and now he has signed with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

And finally, some might remember the US-Mexico rivalry movie that was being made a few years ago called Gringos at the Gate.  Well, it is finally on the internet for your viewing pleasure.

An assortment of links for Tuesday
   January 13, 2015 (12:38 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A bunch of goodies to get into.

The USMNT has begun January’s camp this week in beautiful Southern California.  In case you missed it, Jurgen Klinsmann has called in 28 players for this camp, a mixture of vets and a bunch of youth as he looks towards the Olympic/U-23 team.

One player at this month’s camp that you probably don’t know that much about is Julio Morales.  Brian Sciaretta gets you caught up to date on Mr. Morales.  It looks like Morales might not be able to play in the friendlies just yet (although he can still participate in the camp) as he has to file a one-time switch with FIFA since he played with Mexico at the 2013 U-20 World Cup.

Much like Brad Friedel with the U-20 team, another former player, Carlos Bocanegra, is helping out as a coach this month.

Kyle McCarthy takes a look at the mixture of vets and youth as camp begins.

Daryl Grove came up with some humorous one-sentence descriptions for each of the players.  Brek Shea’s is easily the best.

Jurgen Klinsmann did not win FIFA Coach of the Year, but he did receive votes from 12 of the 544 voters, including five first-place votes.

In other USMNT news, CONCACAF has moved up the start of the final round of World Cup qualifying (a.k.a. The Hex) by three months to November of 2016 due to FIFA eliminating some international fixture dates in 2017.  The draw for the first round will take place on Thursday, but the US won’t enter qualification until the fourth round, beginning in November of 2015.  Yes, the whole cycle is about to start up again.

And we might know about two more friendlies for this year as Fox Sports ran this graphic during Friday’s U-20 game, which shows games against Australia and Ghana for later this year.

The US U-20 team is off to a rough start down in Jamaica, drawing to Guatemala (highlights) and losing to Panama (highlights).  Cameron Carter-Vickers has scored the only goal for the US so far and he spoke to Tottenham’s website about it.  Junior Flores had to leave the Panama game after getting his ankle stepped/rolled on and it sounds like he is in a boot and is on crutches.  That makes me think he will be out for a little while.  Want some goalie critique of the first two games?  Will has you covered.  And finally, Tony Meola spoke to Tab Ramos and Ramos claims Gedion Zelalem is “untouchable until March” when it comes to the U-20 team.

Speaking of Mr. Zelalem, the guys over at The Short Fuse have a little write- up on the savoir of American soccer Arsenal prospect.

Moving onto some club news.

All signs are pointing towards Mix Diskerud signing with NYCFC later today (or this week).

There was some more Jozy Altidore-to-MLS chatter over the weekend and Toronto FC appears to have the edge at the moment.  If this were to go down, I am just going to pretend that this was some mastermind of Klinsi to get Michael Bradley and Jozy practicing together everyday.

And both Steven Goff and Jeff Carlisle are hearing that a couple MLS teams are interested in signing Sacha Kljestan as well as an English League Championship side.

DeAndre Yedlin got the start and played 60 minutes with Tottenham’s U-21 team on Friday.  To go along with the video in the last link, here are some photos from the game.

Cody Cropper had to be taken to the hospital with a head injury on Monday after a collision in Southampton’s U-21 game.  Hopefully this doesn’t become anything serious.

Jonathan Spector is finally healthy again.  Although he didn’t play, he did make Birmingham City’s bench this past weekend in their 3-1 win over Wigan Athletic.

Heath Pearce didn’t come to terms with Orlando City after being taken in the expansion draft, so he might be looking to take his talents to Europe.  Pearce began his professional career in Denmark with FC Nordsjælland and also played with Hansa Rostock in Germany so he does have experience abroad.

Ventura Alvarado told Brian Sciaretta last week that he would be interested in a US call-up if Klinsmann called.

Since I get e-mailed one every other month by someone wanting to know Freddy Adu’s status, Steven Goff tells us that he is back training in the D.C. area since being let go from Serbia.

Justin Moose will no longer being playing in Finland with SJK as he signed with the Wilmington Hammerheads of USL Pro last week.

I can’t find much more on this, but Frank Simek’s wikipedia page has been updated that he is now with Sông Lam Nghệ An in Vietnam.  As one would expect, it is not easy to find solid information on this team or league.

Goalkeeper Alex Horwath (not to be confused with U-20 goalkeeper Ethan Horvath) is leaving Sweden and Ljungskile SK and signed with Norwegian second division side SK Brann.  Now Horwath and Horvath will both be in Norway.

Remember when David Yelldell had a hot minute with the USMNT?  He talked about it to Bayer Leverkusen’s website.

Former US U-20 player Fabrice Picault has signed with Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic.

And finally, American-born Ghanaian Koby Osei-Wusu is playing with Ghana’s U-20 team.  And this website doesn’t think highly of US Soccer.

He is one of the young talents recruited and being groomed for the various US national soccer teams through their United States Soccer Development Association (USSDA).

The inclusion of Koby will be a major boost for US soccer which is regarded as a low competitive standard.

Hey Ghana, remember thisOr this?  I do.

Monday afternoon links
   December 22, 2014 (12:34 PM) by Matt Benson
 

A bunch of links to catch up from the last week.  Also, this site could be a little slow this week due to the holidays (happy holidays everyone!).  But here are some links.

It looks like DeAndre Yedlin is going to get his UK work permit and will be joining Tottenham in January.

As expected, Brek Shea signed with Orlando City.

It looks like the Freddy Adu experiment in Serbia has failed.

Mix Diskerud could be signing with Tijuana or not.  He is being vague like always.

Omar Salgado was traded from Vancouver to NYCFC with the rumor that he would be transferred to “an international team.”  That team looks to be Tigres.

While he wouldn’t be eligible to play for the US for a while, it looks like the US is going to miss out on Diego Fagundez.

After playing 12 games for GAIS in Sweden this past season, Ariel Lassiter returned to the US and signed with LA Galaxy II last week.

Jack McBean has already been in England training with Charlton Athletic and now it looks like he is going to trial with Scottish side Hibernian.

Alejandro Bedoya was named Nantes Player of the Month by the club’s supporters.

Will John was last seen scoring goals for AZAL in Azerbaijan in 2014 and now he can be found in Morocco with MAS Fez.

The USMNT finished 2014 with a #27 rank in the latest FIFA world rankings.

The US U-20 team is down in Honduras and won 2-1 yesterday with Lynden Gooch scoring this back heel for the winner.

The US U-17 team got in a bench clearing fight with Tottenham’s U-18 team last week.  Here is some video.

Cameron Carter-Vickers has re-signed with Tottenham despite some interest from Arsenal.  He also scored for Tottenham’s youth team while the team was in Florida last week.

And finally, Marc Pelosi is playing again for Liverpool’s U-21 team after some injuries.

A few links before the weekend.

The USMNT will have a second friendly next month in Europe as they will take on Colombia at Craven Cottage in London.

The latest FIFA rankings came out earlier this week and the US dropped six places to No. 23.  They are still the third-highest ranked team in CONCACAF as Costa Rica comes in at No. 16 and Mexico at No. 17.

Mix Diskerud had to be subbed out after 36 minutes in last weekend’s game due to an injury, but he just missed a couple practices this week and returned to training yesterday.  Sounds like a good chance he plays on Sunday.

Also in the injury department, Aron Johannsson is expected to dress with AZ Alkmaar this weekend.  Johannsson played with AZ’s reserves earlier this week and will get a chance to play in his first game with the senior team against Groningen on Saturday.

While those guys are coming back from injuries, Timothy Chandler will likely miss Eintracht Frankfurt’s game this weekend due to an abductor muscle issue.

After missing basically the entire season after tearing his achilles tendon, Zarek Valentin returned to full training this week in Norway.

Freddy Adu hasn’t done much at Jagodina in Serbia this season and could be making a move to Sweden come January.

Geoff Cameron is back from injury and is ready to fight for a position at center back or central midfield.

Ives Galarcep talked to Greg Garza earlier this week about the crazy three-year run Garza has been having.  I remember when he was sort of this mythical player stuck in Traffic Sports purgatory.

Franco Panizo caught up with Alfredo Morales to talk about the progress he is making at Ingolstadt and with the USMNT.

Jose Torres scored a pretty bitchin’ goal in Copa MX action earlier this week.

Gedion Zelalem went the full 90 minutes in Arsenal’s 4-3 loss to Anderlecht in the UEFA Youth League on Tuesday.  On Wednesday, Junior Flores got the start and played 77 minutes in Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 loss to Galatasaray.

Marc Pelosi has been training some with Liverpool’s senior team this past week.

Brian Sciaretta talked to 16-year-old English-American defender Cameron Carter-Vickers about his trip with the US U-23 team down to Brazil and how US Soccer found him.

While we are learning about some new dual-national players, Tom Marshall introduces us to Leones Negros midfielder Jesus Vazquez.

Aleks Gogic signed with Reading last year, but it looks like the 18-year-old goalkeeper must be on loan with Southern League Premier Division (seventh tier!) side Slough Town F.C. as he played in a game with them last Saturday.

Lots of links before the weekend

Here are a bunch of things from the last couple of days.

Joe Gyau made his first team debut with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.  He came off the bench and played the last 16 minutes.  Here are some highlights and an every touch video of his performance.  As for that hugging photo with Jurgen Klopp, that came right after Dortmund scored their first goal right as Gyau was about to sub into the game.

According to NBC’s ProSoccerTalk, Geoff Cameron is expected to return to full training today at Stoke City.

Alejandro Bedoya didn’t play in Nantes’ game over the weekend due to the flu, but he came back and played 84 minutes in a draw to Bastia on Wednesday.  Bedoya also did an interview with FIFA.com this week.

Julian Green missed Hamburg’s mid-week game due to some injured ribs.

Clint Dempsey talked to the website Made Man about his goal against Ghana from the World Cup.

Freddy Adu still exists and finally played for Jagodina in a Serbian Cup win over BSK Borča (highlights).

Stabæk and the Fighting Bob Bradleys were knocked out of the semifinals of the Norwegian Cup by Molde FK this week.  Grant Wahl talked to Bob prior to the game.

While he has a caretaker manager at the moment, Emerson Hyndman went the full 90 minutes in Fulham’s 2-1 win over Doncaster Rovers in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

Both Paul Arriola and Alejandro Guido went the distance in Tijuana’s win over Chivas in Copa MX action on Wednesday.  Amando Moreno also came off the bench for the Xolos.

Herculez Gomez and Jose Torres also both went 90 in Tirges’ 1-0 win over Queretaro in Copa MX during the week.

Here are some Nottingham Forest fans singing a song about Eric Lichaj.

Robbie Keane thinks Robbie Rogers should get a look at left back for the USMNT (No Gregory, I am not posting this as a shot at Timmy Chandler.  Just wanted to get that out there in advance. ;) ).

MLSsoccer.com posted their Top 24 players under 24 yesterday.  A few USMNT players (DeAndre Yedlin, Bill Hamid, Luis Gil) on there as well as some possible USMNT hopefuls in the near future (Gyasi Zardes, Wil Trapp).

It might be tough for some of the MLS players to play for the USMNT in the October 10 friendly due to the MLS schedule that week.

Steven Goff has our updated ticket sales numbers for the two October friendlies.  Come on, Boca Raton.

Zarek Valentin is back on the field again as he recovers from his ankle injury.

Marc Heider scored his third goal of the season earlier this week and here are some highlights.

Brian Sciaretta gives us a “scouting report” on West Bromwich Albion’s Danny Barbir.

Don’t have FIFA 15 yet?  Here are some of the ratings for USMNT players on the game.

And finally, we are nearly out of our OT/Sacha Mustache t-shirts, but here is your last chance to get your hands on one.  Some of the ones listed in that post have already been claimed, waiting to hear back from some others, but send me an e-mail if you are interested.
