The return of the late night link action
   September 7, 2011 (9:56 PM) by Matt Benson

The site should hopefully get back to normal soon, but here are some links from today and the last couple days.  I am not going to talk much about the US-Belgium friendly as apparently there wasn’t much to the game and I am guessing most people have already read up on it.  That said, here are two “catching up” videos US Soccer did with Sacha Kljestan and Clarence Goodson that I missed earlier this week.

Now for some more club-related news.

Stuart Holden logged another 65 minutes in Bolton’s latest reserve match.  There was also some talk that Jurgen Klinsmann was in the stands watching his progress.  Hopefully he can return to the first team in the near future.

David Smith talked to Daniel Williams recently about his move from SC Freiburg to TSG Hoffenheim.  On top of the move, he signed a new two-year contract that will have him playing with the club until the summer of 2014.

Jamie Hill caught up with Ryan Adeleye to talk about his goals for the new Israeli Premier League season.

While he hasn’t seen any first team minutes at 1860 Munich this season, it looks like Bobby Wood picked up a knock to his knee during a recent test match.  It is the same knee he injured at the end of last season and he will undergo some tests soon to see how bad of an injury it might be.

Another player who hasn’t been seeing the field a lot recently is Jon-Paul Pittman at Oxford United.  According to his manager, he hasn’t impressed enough to earn some playing time.

Villyan Bijev apparently has been scoring some goals with Fortuna Düsseldorf’s reserve team since going out on loan.  And he recently did an interview with some local press (you have to click the little red arrows for it to scroll to the next questions).

And finally, I missed out on Lester Dewee’s debut with Ängelholm this past weekend.  Dewee came off the bench and scored the game-tying goal in injury time.  Here is a random photo of him in action from the game.

Timothy Chandler declares his Independence Day
   July 5, 2011 (6:34 AM) by Matt Benson

Those fireworks you saw last night were not for America’s birthday, they were because Timothy Chandler shot down rumors, yet again, that he might switch to Germany in an interview with Brian Sciaretta.

“No. That is absolutely not the reason why I missed the Gold Cup,” Chandler stated emphatically. “It is my goal and dream to represent the United States at the 2014 World Cup. What I said in March is true. I will absolutely not play for Germany. There is no way that will happen.”

USA! USA! USA!  Also, Howie gets full credit for the title of this post.  Chandler also talks about getting healthy and watching the Gold Cup.

Some of you might have noticed that Josh Gatt was pulled out of Molde FK’s game this past weekend after 43 minutes due to an injury.  After further examination on Monday, it looks like he just suffered a ligament strain on his left foot and will only be out 2-3 weeks.  Molde also doesn’t have a game over the next two weeks, so he is headed back to Michigan for a week off and will begin his rehab in America.

The Shin Guardian got some “hack” to write about what it is like to be an American “journeyman” playing abroad.  Oh wait, it is not a hack, it is Herculez Gomez.  I think he knows a thing or two on the subject, but check it out as it is interesting.  Nice to see an active professional showing opening up like this.

And finally, here is a video interview with Ryan Adeleye who plays with Israel’s Hapoel Be’er Sheva.  The video portion is mostly in English.  Adeleye appeared in 17 games last season, finding himself in the starting lineup 10 times.
