   August 8, 2014 (1:45 PM) by Matt Benson
 

Both Fabian Hurzeler and Matt Taylor scored goals last weekend and both followed up those efforts with goals during the middle of this week in German Regionalliga action.

Matt Taylor got the start, went the full 90 minutes and scored the game-winning goal in Saarbrücken’s 2-1 win over Freiburg II on Tuesday.  Caleb Stanko also went the full 90 minutes for Freiburg II.

On Wednesday, Fabian Hurzeler went the full 90 minutes and scored a goal in Hoffenheim II’s 4-1 win over Zweibrücken.

Goals from the last couple of days
   August 7, 2014 (1:36 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Of course the weekend that I am gone has 12 goals scored by various Americans throughout Europe.  Here are some GIFs of the ones that have video evidence of the goal.  For the full list of goals, check out our goal tracker.

Matt Taylor opened up the 2014-15 season with a fun goal in Saarbrücken’s 2-2 draw to Homburg in German Regionalliga action on Friday.  He also scored a goal in the team’s second game, a 2-1 win over Freiburg II on Tuesday, but there are no highlights of that game just yet.

Coming off a 10-goal season in 2013-14, Marc Heider scored his first goal this season in Holstein Kiel’s 2-2 draw to Joe Gyau and Borussia Dortmund II over the weekend in German 3. Liga action.

Fabian Hurzeler is another player who has scored two goals in the last week.  The GIF below comes from Saturday’s 3-1 win by Hoffenhim II over Hessen Kassel.  He also scored in a 4-1 win over on Zweibrücken on Tuesday but the Sudwest highlight show hasn’t come online for the mid-week games yet.

Over in Sweden, Andrew Stadler scored his 10th goal of the season on Saturday in Landskrona’s 3-2 loss to Alex Horwath and Ljungskile.

On Sunday and over in Finland, Lawrence Smith scored his fifth goal of the season in GBK’s 3-0 win over OLS.

And also on Sunday, Jordan Seabrook scored his fourth goal of the season in VPS’s 3-1 loss to Lahti.

Terrence Boyd, Shawn Parker & Matt Taylor are all on the move
   July 2, 2014 (8:00 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Now with the World Cup over for the US, it is time to slowly transfer our attention to the silly season and we have already had a couple moves in the last couple of weeks.

While his new club hasn’t officially announced anything, Rapid Vienna have confirmed that Terrence Boyd is headed to German 2. Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.  Boyd scored 28 league goals in 59 games for Rapid Vienna over the last two seasons and now returns to his country of birth.

RB Leipzig are an interesting team.  Energy drink maker Red Bull bought the fifth division team SSV Markranstädt in 2009 and formed Red Bull Leipzig.  Since Germany won’t allow sponsors to be part of team names, they renamed the team to RasenBallsport Leipzig (“Leipzig lawn ball sports”) or just RB Leipzig.

With Red Bull’s funding, the team earned promotion to the Regionalliga (fourth division) in 2009-10 then promotion to the 3. Liga in 2012-13 and then promotion to the 2. Bundesliga last season after finishing second in the 3. Liga.  They also play in Germany’s Red Bull Arena, which is largest football stadium in the former East Germany and was built for the 2006 World Cup.  They are a young team, but have some ambitious owners.

Staying in Germany, German-American Shawn Parker is leaving Mainz after signing a new four-year contract with FC Augsburg.  The 21-year-old forward appeared in 27 league games with Mainz’s first team over the last two seasons after growing up within Mainz’s youth system.

Parker is leaving a club that finished seventh last season for a team that finished eighth and one point behind Mainz in the Bundesliga table.  Most fans will remember FC Augsburg as the club that Michael Parkhurst sat on the bench with for most of last season.

And finally, Matt Taylor left Preußen Münster earlier this month for another German team in FC Saarbrücken.  Taylor scored 22 league goals in 69 games for Preußen Münster in the 3. Liga over the last two seasons.  FC Saarbrücken were in the 3. Liga last year but have been relegated to the Regionalliga Südwest.  Saarbrücken will also be Taylor’s sixth different team in Germany since leaving the US in 2008.

Ending the week with some links
   January 10, 2014 (12:41 AM) by Matt Benson
 

For the four people who don’t know, Roma officially announced the sale of Michael Bradley to MLS on their website yesterday.  The $10 million transfer fee is tied for the second largest ever paid for an American.  And Roma made out with a nice little profit on Bradley.

There has already been about eleventy billion words written about Bradley and his move to MLS so I will spare you with my thoughts nor will I link every little rant/story out there.  That said, here are some quotes from Landon Donovan on the move.

Also from yesterday, Julian Green scored a goal with Bayern Munich’s first team in a friendly against the Sudanese club Al-Merrikh (highlights).  And Matt Taylor scored two goals in a friendly against Heracles (photo).

As expected after his contract was terminated by Randers last week, Charlie Davies signed a permanent contract with the New England Revolution.

Brian Span is returning to the US/MLS after two seasons in Sweden.

I posted last month that I got word from an OT reader about the USMNT’s World Cup kits and some more information has been leaked which seems to match up with it.  The change in crest (RIP centennial crest) matches all the new branding done by US Soccer’s website and Twitter account.  There was also a “leaked shirt” photo circulating around yesterday, but it looked pretty photoshop to me (it looked like someone just tried to create what it should look like based on the description from the new leaked information).

Speaking of new shirts, Tijuana revealed their new red shirt for this season at some party/presentation.  Kim Tate was also down there for the presentation and snagged a couple photos.

Sticking with Tijuana, Mexican international Fernando Arce has a son, Fernando Arce Jr., who is also on Tijuana (playing for their U-20 team) and he was born in the US.

Eric Lichaj picked up a “lower body” injury this past weekend, but it doesn’t appear to be anything serious.

With the US U-20 team currently camping down in Florida, Brian Sciaretta talked to Tab Ramos about how things are going.

Brooks Lennon scored a brace for Liverpool’s U-17 team this week (highlights).  He is #7.

And finally, I really can’t wait for this full video.  Klinsi being Klinsi.  Like a boss.

Linkage for Monday
   October 20, 2013 (10:49 PM) by Matt Benson
 

A lot of stuff happening over the weekend.

Steven Goff has his usual weekly roundup of Americans abroad to catch you up one what you may have missed.

We had some goals this weekend.  Aron Johannsson had himself a peach of a game, scoring twice and setting up the other goal in AZ’s 3-1 win (highlights).  Alejandro Bedoya came off the bench and scored the game-winning goal in Nantes’ 1-0 win (highlights).  Terrence Boyd came off the bench and scored the game-tying goal from the penalty spot in a 2-2 draw (highlights).  Shawn Parker got the start and scored the opening goal of the game in Mainz’s 4-1 loss to Bayern Munich (highlights).  And Matt Taylor got the start and scored his fourth league goal of the campaign in Preußen Münster’s 4-0 win (highlights).

We also had some goals from guys in lower leagues, which we don’t have highlights for, but you can follow along with our goal tracker.

In case you missed it on Friday, Will Packwood was sent out on loan to League Two side Bristol Rivers.  Packwood found himself in the lineup over the weekend (photo) and apparently had a Man of the Match type performance in the loss.  The local press also had some nice things to say about Packwood.

One huge positive was the debut performance of on-loan centre-back Will Packwood, whose mature display belied his years and the fact that he is looking to bounce back from a career-threatening broken leg.

The Birmingham City player looked a born leader, unafraid to issue instructions to more senior colleagues, and won most of his battles in the air and one the ground.

Duane Holmes also made an impact this weekend while coming off the bench for Huddersfield Town in a loss to Leicester City.

Death, taxes and Zak Whitbread injuries.  His latest is a calf injury which saw him get subbed out in the first half.

Michael Bradley returned from injury and made Roma’s bench, but did not get in the game on Friday, a 2-0 win over Napoli.  With a couple other teams losing in Europe, Roma is the only perfect team in any of the top European leagues.

Brek Shea and Maurice Edu both started for Stoke City’s U-21 team on Friday with Shea scoring a goal and picking up a red card.

Steven Goff is hearing that Gent, Brugge and QPR are interested in Oguchi Onyewu.  Greg Seltzer is reporting that Gooch is currently training with QPR.

The Americans Outlaws are getting some love this week with Founder and President Korey Donahoo making an appearance on the Men in Blazers’ SiriusXM show last week.  And Brian Straus takes a quick look at the various chapter logos.

Mexico hired Miguel Herrera this weekend meaning they have gone through four managers over the last month.  The US have had four managers over the last 18 years.

And Zlatan Ibrahimovic is really, really good.
