Tuesday morning linkage
   October 29, 2013 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson
 

This past weekend was a fantastic one for the various Americans in Europe.  We had 12 total goals by 10 different players.  I have posted highlights of most of the goals over the last two days, but you can follow along with our goal tracker.

One of those goal scorers was Julian Green, who scored twice against Heimstetten (a photo of him celebrating with teammates from the game), giving him 15 goals in 15 games with Bayern Munich’s U-23 team this season.  During last Friday’s morning links, there were some rumblings that Green would be going to the USMNT camp in Europe next month.  There was finally confirmation by US Soccer later that afternoon that he would be at least attending the camp, but he hasn’t filled out a FIFA one-time switch so he can’t play in the friendlies.  That said, Brian Sciaretta is hearing “optimistic” things about his US prospects.

Another player who scored a goal in the German Regionalliga this weekend was Jann George and here is a photo of him celebrating with a teammate.

Michael Bradley came off the bench and scored the winning goal for Roma over the weekend, giving them the longest winning streak to start a season in Serie A history.  Here is a fantastic call by an Italian broadcaster who looses his stuff and calls him Lex Luthor.  Seriously, listen to that.

Also in Mikey news, Roma apparently turned down a seven million euro bid by Cardiff City for his services this past summer.

Tim Howard won the battle of American goalkeepers over the weekend in Everton’s 2-0 win over Brad Guzan and Aston Villa.  Based on his strong play, including a save on a penalty kick, he was named to BBC Sport’s Garth Crooks’ Premier League Team of the Week.  That link also tells us that Howard has saved six penalty kicks in Premier League play since 2008-09, the most by any keeper over that time frame.

Will Packwood put in another Man of the Match honors for Bristol Rovers in a 0-0 draw to Chesterfield.

Steve Cherundolo was supposed to make Hannover 96′s 18-man roster this past weekend, but some medical paperwork wasn’t turned in properly (or something like that).

Huddersfield Town manager Mark Robbins likes Duane Holmes.

Here is a sweet 360-degree photo of Fabian Borini, Jozy Altidore and Sunderland celebrating the game-winning goal from Sunday.

We know Jurgen Klinsmann wants the MLS-based USMNT players to go out on winter loans and now we have our first rumor:  Clint Dempsey back to Fulham?

And finally, Michel Platini wants the World Cup to expand to 40 teams.  Shockingly, he only wants UEFA to get one of those eight new spots.

Fourth of July links
   July 4, 2013 (12:15 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Today is always one of the great days of the year.  Here are a few links to read between some beers and fireworks.

Jurgen Klinsmann has selected DaMarcus Beasley as the captain for the US for the Gold Cup.  A nice honor for Beasley.

US Soccer has not made any official announcements, but Ives is hearing that Josh Gatt’s knee injury is significant enough that he will miss the Gold Cup.  As for the other injured player, Corey Ashe, he returned to full training today.

The USMNT will hold a training session open to the public today at 5 PM Pacific at Qualcomm Stadium.  Admission is free.

The official US Soccer youtube page has uploaded some highlights from past games against Guatemala.  So here is a game from 2000 and one from 2005.

I don’t know if I will do a pre-game primer or not, but here are the game notes.  The US is 13-4-6 all-time against Guatemala (11-0-1 on American soil) and the game will be on at 8 PM Pacific on NBC Sports Network.

The latest run of wins by the US has moved them up to #22 in the latest FIFA world rankings, up six spots from last month and now only two spots behind Mexico who dropped from #17 to #20.

Leander Schaerlaeckens writes about US Soccer’s slowly building scouting network.

If you haven’t read this site in a while, Howie has been bringing the thunder this week with a bunch of posts.  He has posted about Jared Jeffrey joining DC United.  Mario Rodriguez’s move to Borussia Mönchengladbach U-23 team.  Derby County want to send Conor Doyle to MLS on a loan.  Mike Grella is not returning to Scunthorpe United.  And I threw up a post about our latest Jann George sighting.  So this site has been pretty busy this week during a normally slow period.

In some fun site news, I got confirmation that our first international order for a Sacha Kljestan mustache shirt successfully crossed the pond and landed in Beglium.  The buyer is hopefully going to get a photo with Sacha and the shirt at one of Anderlecht’s preseason sessions in the next few weeks.  You can buy your own shirt right here.

While things in Egypt seem to be acting up again, it is good to hear that Bob Bradley and his wife are currently safe and back in the US for the moment.

Greg Seltzer has the latest transfer gossip about Jozy Altidore right here and here.  Thoughts on Jozy at Sunderland?

The Wooten Clan, Andrew Wooten, continues to put the ball in the back of the net in preseason friendlies for Kaiserslautern, scoring another two goals in a 7-0 win over Slovenian champs Maribor.

Chukwudi Chijindu scored his fifth goal of the season in Thór’s 2-1 win over ÍA Akranes on Wednesday.  His five goals this season are tied for the second most in the Icelandic Úrvalsdeild.

And here is what Bobby Wood will be wearing next season at 1860 Munich.  1860 Munich always seem to have some shirts that I like.

Enjoy the day.

A Jann George sighting!
   July 3, 2013 (6:30 AM) by Matt Benson
 

We haven’t heard or seen the 21-year-old (today is his birthday) forward in a while, but Howie sent me this link last night, which shows that German-American is now with SpVgg Greuther Fürth’s U-23 team.

Jann George has sort of disappeared over the last year.  He looked like a promising US prospect after scoring nine goals in 24 games for Nurnberg II in the German Regionalliga in 2011-12.  He made at least one appearance with the US U-23 team at a December camp in 2011, but did not attend many more as his playing time dipped with Nurnberg’s U-23 team.

He was sent out on loan to FK Senica in Slovakia for about a week last summer before that deal was canceled and he returned to Nurnberg.  George then scored two goals in 10 games last season before getting kicked off the team in November for some issues, including arguing with his coach.  About a month later, he was spotted with 1860 Munich’s U-23 team, but he did not appear in any games and had his contract dissolved in April.

So now George is at SpVgg Greuther Fürth, has been training with the team since the beginning of summer and has appeared in at least one friendly.  Should be interesting to see what happens next.

Monday morning links
   January 7, 2013 (8:00 AM) by Matt Benson
 

This weekend was sort of a fun one with Dempsey and Herc scoring goals, plus the USMNT roster announcement.  Good times.  Now or some links from the weekend.

Speaking of the USMNT January camp.  Both Graham Zusi and Juan Agudelo are going to be a week late as they are headed to West Ham United this week for one of these MLS week-long-summer-camp-training sessions.

Doug McIntyre (ESPN Insider) gives us his surprises of the 25-man roster.

The other chatter from yesterday regarding the USMNT was locations of the various hexagonal qualifiers.  We are nearing the home opener against Costa Rica in March and we still don’t know the location.  Grant Wahl is hearing that the final three possibilities are Kansas City, Salt Lake and Denver.  I am guessing it will be Salt Lake or Denver as the US plays Mexico at Azteca a few days later and those two sites give the US players some training/game action with altitude.

Steven Goff is hearing that the June qualifiers could finally be headed to the Pacific Northwest in Portland and Seattle.  While that is all fun and games, Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson was tweeting a bunch about how there probably won’t be a qualifier in Portland since they don’t want to put sod on their turf for a couple different reasons.  But he thinks there is a decent shot that Portland hosts a Gold Cup game.  You can check out his feed for all his reasons/ranting.

I already linked above Clint Dempsey’s goals from the weekend, but here is a video interview from after the game.

Birmingham City’s website gives us a quick update on Will Packwood.  It looks like he will be out “for at least nine months.”  Teammate Jonathan Spector missed out on the FA Cup match with some kind of back injury.

I missed this story last week, but this should make Bob Bradley’s job a little easier.

ESPN FC gives us three young Bayern Munich players to keep an eye on including Tampa-born Julian Green.

Shawn Parker scored the game-winning goal this weekend for Mainz in a friendly against Club Brugge.

Andrew Wooten and Sandhausen made it to the finals of the Harder Cup before losing to Karlsruher SC.  Wooten was one of Sandhausen’s top scorers of the tournament.  And it looks like I was able to find video of the whole final.  That looks like it would be fun to attend.

I haven’t heard Jann George’s name mentioned since he was kicked off Nurnberg in early November, but apparently I missed that he signed with 1860 Munich II late in November and has been training with the first team as they start their winter break training camp.

And finally, much to Howie’s chagrin, former US U-17er Fuad Ibrahim has been named to Ethiopia’s team for the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
