A plethora of links for Friday
   August 7, 2015 (1:11 AM) by Matt Benson

A bunch of stuff before the weekend.

FIFA held the draw for the U-17 World Cup yesterday and the US is in a tough group.  That said, they have played Croatia and Chile already during this cycle and did alright.

The US moved up from #34 to #29 in the latest FIFA world rankings.

US Soccer might be getting a new crest in 2016.  From what I can see online, a lot of people think it is better than the old crest but nothing special.  I like it.

Nothing official has been announced yet, but it looks like the Confederations Cup playoff game is going to move from Friday, October 9 to Saturday, October 10.  I hope it doesn’t as I likely can’t go on Saturday, but can on Friday.  Also, if you have any extra money or are looking for a cool cause to donate to, help send some veterans to the game.

Aron Johannsson made the move to Werder Bremen earlier this week.  He will be wearing #9.

Over at Fulhamerica, Emerson Hyndman has turned down some contract extension offers from the SW6 club, while Luca de la Torre has signed his first professional contract with the club.

Staying in West London, QPR has made a couple unsuccessful offers to Bolton for Tim Ream.

The New England Revolution are being linked to centerback Zak Whitbread.  Whitbread is currently a free agent.

Eintracht Frankfurt manager Armin Veh doesn’t like Timothy Chandler playing for the USMNT.

Eric Lichaj told Nottingham Forest’s website last week that he is not focused on playing for the USMNT (if Klinsi knew he existed).

Galway United released Kevin Garcia last week.

This is from earlier in the week, but Howie updated a couple transfer things, including Cesar Romero signing with FK Vardar of FYR Macedonia.

We have a Anton Peterlin sighting!  He is now with Boldklubben af 1893 of the Danish third division.  No word if the club has any interest in Cody Arnoux (that joke is for Howie and like three other people who might get it).

Tyrone McCargo is back in Germany with SV Wacker Nürnberg after a season in Austria with SK Austria Klagenfurt.

Brown product Daniel Taylor has signed with Acharnaikos in Greece.  While recent Georgetown graduate Austin Martz has signed with Pembroke Athleta in Malta.

Top Drawer Soccer’s J.R. Eskilson has been killing it the past couple weeks with a bunch of information on youth players training/trailing throughout Europe (here and here).

Austria Klagenfurt vs. SV Wallern Highlights
   June 2, 2015 (6:23 PM) by Matt Benson

We haven’t heard Tyrone McCargo’s name in a while, but he scored his third goal of the season on Friday in Austria Klagenfurt’s 1-0 win over SV Wallern in Austrian Regionalliga action.  Here are some highlights with his goal coming at the 1:30 mark.

A bunch of random stuff for you before the weekend.

RB Leipzig’s website officially announced the signing of Terrence Boyd yesterday.

As Howie posted yesterday, Matt Besler and DeAndre Yedlin are getting some interest from Europe after their play in the World Cup.

According to Brian Sciaretta, Aron Johannsson is set to have ankle surgery before the start of the Eredivisie season.  It is unclear when he picked up the injury or how long he will be out.

Cody Cropper signed a new one-year deal with Southampton.

Puebla are trying to re-sign DaMarcus Beasley.  According to Eric Gomez, Puebla initially thought Beasley was asking for too much money but were impressed with his play in the World Cup.

Alejandro Bedoya gave all his USMNT teammates a nice gift after the World Cup.

Could Jermaine Jones be hinting at a move to MLS?

It sounds like Jurgen Klinsmann will be looking at a lot of younger players over the next year when it comes to the USMNT.

“A good thing about this next year is that we kind of have the opportunity to see a lot of young players coming to our platform, coming to the senior team,” said Klinsmann. “We can give them time to show where they are up to right now.

“The experienced players, or the older players, we can tell them for the next couple of months: ‘Go play in your club environment, we know you inside out anyway, we know what you bring to the table. But right now maybe there’s time for the next couple of friendlies that come up and over the next year that we want to see the young players grow and see how they can make it.’”

Greg Seltzer is hearing that at least one Eredivisie team and Genk are interested in Sacha Kljestan as well as Olympiacos.

Stuart Holden will continue to work out with Bolton despite not being under contract.  He will be allowed to play in any friendly, under-21 or development squad games but if he gets healthy again and Bolton want him back with the first team then he would have to sign a new deal.

A possible good sign on the Shawn Parker front?  He lists Germany and US for his nationality on Augsburg’s website.

Here are some photos of Junior Flores and Joe Gyau in action with Borussia Dortmund’s U-23 team.  Mario Rodriguez scored two goals for Borussia Mönchengladbach against Dortmund in this friendly.

Are you buying a Tijuana/Paul Arriola jersey this year?  Heads up that he switched numbers from #47 to a more squad-friendly #20.

Tyrone McCargo is no longer with Nurnberg’s U-23 team.  He is now with SK Austria Klagenfurt in the Austrian Regionalliga Mitte (third tier).

Adam Henley has returned to Blackburn Rovers early before training camp to finish rehabbing his ankle injury before the season starts.

Europa League started back up this week.  Pablo Punyed went 90 in Stjarnan’s 4-0 win over Bangor City.  A Mix Diskerud-less Rosenborg defeated Jelgava 4-0.  Jordan Seabrook came off the bench for 21 minutes in VPS’s 2-1 win over Brommapojkarna.

Alfred Koroma has had an impressive start with Fluminese’s reserve team.

I don’t know if this link will work for everyone, but for those of you that missed PBS’s documentary on Bob Bradley, here you go.

This will probably be the best World Cup analysis you read during the entire tournament.

And finally, one of the guys I hung out with during the World Cup put together a compilation video of the trip down to Brazil.  Hopefully this weekend I can sit down and type up a post with a bunch of my photos and stories from the trip.  It really was a once in a lifetime trip.  If you are even on the fence about going to Russia in 2018, you need to go.

A bunch of things that will hopefully pass some time while you are at work on Friday.

Franco Panizo recently talked to Stuart Holden about his recovery process.  Holden is also switching numbers from #8 to #22 next year.

Another injured Yank, Robbie Rogers, is closer to full recovery as well and is headed back to Leeds for preseason.

It looks like Carlos Bocanegra is going to reject having his contract transfer over to the new Rangers 2.0 company.

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill has confirmed that the club has made an offer to Mike Grella.

According to Greg Seltzer, Stoke City have begun talks with the Houston Dynamo over a fee for Geoff Cameron.

Mathew Wagner recently talked to Steve Clark about his work permit fiasco and Hønefoss’ season so far in 2012.

Brian Sciaretta has an interview up with Omid Namazi, an American who is an assistant coach with Iranian national team.

Chris Wright has made the move from Magdeburg to fellow German Regionalliga side Berliner AK 07.

And Matt Taylor has left Paderborn for German 3. Liga club Preußen Münster.  They have already started their preseason and he has scored a few goals already.  He will be looking to regain his 3. Liga form from 2010-11 when he scored 17 goals for Rot Weiss Ahlen (tied for the third most in the 3. Liga).

Andrew Wooten and Kaiserslautern have also started up their preseason with a few games, including a 2-0 win over SVN Zweibrücken.  Wooten has been getting some starts up top in a 4-4-2.

Tyrone McCargo has been promoted from Nurnberg’s U-19 team to their U-23 team, meaning he will be playing in the Regionalliga this upcoming season (which means we can follow him a little bit better).

A few guys in Finland played on Thursday.  Daniel Antunez went the full 90 minutes in Inter Turku’s 4-0 loss to MYPA.  Etchu Tabe went the full 90 minutes in KuPS’ 3-0 loss to TPS.  And Mason Trafford went the full 90 minutes in IFK Mariehamn’s 1-0 win over Haka.

In case you missed it on Wednesday, Josh Gatt assisted on Molde’s first goal in their 4-3 win over Rosenborg in the NM Cupen.  You can check out some highlights here.

And finally, some more new kits for the 2012-13 season.  I know he is the goalkeeper, but Neal Kitson’s Northampton Town have some new home and away kits.  And in the event Villyan Bijev goes back out on loan to Fortuna Düsseldorf next season, they also have some new home and away kits.  I like the red/home shirt.

If you haven’t heard yet (since you have been living under a rock), Clint Dempsey scored his 37th career Premier League goal earlier today (highlights here).  The goal gives him sole possession of first place on the all-time American goal-scoring list for the Premier League.  I did a whole Inside the Numbers on his then-36 Premier League goals last month and ESPN Stats and Info did their own random stat nuggets.

It was his third career goal against Liverpool, making them his fifth different team with 3+ goals against.  It was also his 22nd career Premier League goal at Craven Cottage.  It was also great watching him get pissed at Craig Bellamy.

It looks like Brad Guzan will get about a month to impress Aston Villa (and other teams) with Shay Given being ruled out a month with a hamstring tear.  In a perfect world, in my opinion, he does well and some teams come calling in January once Given returns.

Daryl and the guys over at The Total Soccer Show decided to watch Hoffenheim’s 2-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen last Friday and gave their thoughts on Fabian Johnson and Danny Williams on their most recent podcast.  It is worth a listen.  They also didn’t like how Leverkusen took their corners.

Yanks Abroad’s Clint Waddell caught up with Tyrone McCargo to talk about the U-23/U-20 camp from last month and his time so far this season at Nurnberg.

Brian Sciaretta also gives his thoughts on the USMNT as 2012 approaches, giving us players to watch rise/fall from the national team picture.

Juan Agudelo talked to US Soccer’s website about his time at VfB Stuttgart.  For those that forget, he is now in England training with Liverpool.

And finally, this one is for the rumorville, but I have heard from people that Blackburn might be taking a look at Robbie Rogers.  Then I found this article in a British paper online.  Rogers has been in Germany training with Kaiserslautern, but we shall see if this one has some legs in the next couple of weeks.

Friday morning news and links
   July 1, 2011 (10:49 AM) by Matt Benson

Jemal Johnson will not be playing in Europa League this upcoming season.  After appearing in 14 games for Lokomotiv Sofia and clinching a Europa League spot in 2010-11, Johnson has decided to return to England and signed with League Two side Southend United.  Southend United’s website also has some quotes up from Johnson.

The UK’s News & Star has a nice story and quotes from Carlisle United’s manager Greg Abbott on Frank Simek.

Do we have a new candidate for First Great American Left Back?  It looks like Celtic’s Charlie Mulgrew is considering switching from Scotland to the US for his international career.  Mulgrew was born in Glasgow, but could play for the US via his grandparents.  But it also looks like he would prefer to play for Scotland, but is at least considering the US. (Update – Upon further review, I don’t think he would qualify via his grandparents as mentioned by people in the comments)

Greg Garza will not be at Estoril-merica next season as he is a free agent and no longer connected to Traffic Sports or Estoril.  I am not a huge fan of Traffic Sports, so I like this move by Garza.

Brian Sciaretta has a good preview on a few younger guys in Europe that we should keep an eye on for this upcoming season.  I swear Sciaretta knows the family tree of everyone in Germany.

With that said, Sciaretta has an interview up with Tyrone McCargo, a German-American left winger that will play with Nurnberg’s U-19 team this year.

And sticking with youth in Germany, it looks like Wolfsburg could be interested in Bobby Wood.  A lot of people are expecting big things out of Wood this season after appearing in five games with 1860 Munich’s senior team last season and playing well with the US U-20 team.

Finally, I am bored at work today, so I started this discussion up.  Come join us in the comments and give us your thoughts.
