A few links before the weekend.

After Jurgen Klinsmann wins his second World Cup in 2018, it looks like he can pass the torch to Pep Guardiola.  Dynasty!

One of Pep’s current players, Julian Green, gets the full Brian Sciaretta treatment this week (a.k.a. an informative interview).

The Gregg Berhalter era at Hammarby in Sweden ended on Wednesday as the former US international was “sacked”.

According to Greg Seltzer, Eugene Starikov is finalizing a transfer to Tom Tomsk.  Starikov scored two goals in 30 league appearances for Tom Tomsk while being on loan from Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2010-11.

For those you waiting to order a Danny Williams/Reading jersey, you can go ahead now since he will wear #23 this season.

Stoke City are in the US on their preseason tour and lost, 2-0, to the Houston Dynamo last night.  Geoff Cameron played 89 minutes for Stoke City in his return to Houston.  Maurice Edu is also with the team during this tour as he slowly works his way back from a hernia.

We had a Jonathan Bornstein sighting earlier this week.  Bornstein came off the bench for Tigres in their 1-0 loss to Cruz Azul Hidalgo in the Copa MX.

A Josh Gatt-less Molde FK advanced in Champions League with a 2-0 win (3-0 on aggregate) over Sligo Rovers earlier this week.  Eighteen-year-old Ben Spencer made Molde’s bench, but did not play.

Seth Moses was last seen in Austria with Rheindorf Altach in 2011-12, but now he is back in the US playing with the Seattle Sounders’ reserve team.

Mario Rodriguez scored two goals earlier this week in Borussia Mönchengladbach II’s 18-0 win in a preseason friendly.  I am guessing the opponent wasn’t that good.

Junior Flores played with Borussia Dortmund’s U-19 team against a China U-19 team at the Ruhr International Cup yesterday.  Some US fans might not like this.

I am headed to Chicago on Sunday (going to miss out on the Gold Cup final, horrible planning on my part) for my yearly pilgrimage to see some family and friends for the week.  Posting could be light by me next week or it could be normal.  I have no clue on my internet situation (or how much free time I will have).  That was your warning.  Good talk.

Lets start off Wednesday’s links with the Lone Rangers (this is what I am calling the trio at Rangers, and yes, it is an Airheads movie reference).

First off, UEFA has rejected Maribor’s protest over Carlos Bocanegra’s eligibility in last week’s Europa League first leg.  Bocanegra did not have his UK work visa, but since the game was in Slovenia, he could play since he met all the other UEFA regulations.  Take that Slovenia!

Rangers’ website also has a short story up which reveals that all three members of the Lone Rangers have been selected to the USMNT roster for the upcoming friendlies against Costa Rica and Belgium.  It also has a quote from Klinsmann that states that two-thirds of the roster will be players from Europe.  The USMNT roster is rumored to be coming out later this week.

Alexi Lalas writing for the Daily Mirror talks about why George John could do well at Blackburn Rovers.

Brian Sciaretta talked to 18-year-old midfielder Seth Moses about going the “Josh Gatt route” and signing with SCR Altach in Austria.

And finally, Jeff Carlisle has a nice article about American/Mexican/El Salvadoran Joe Corona.  The most interesting part.

In one of his last acts as U.S. national team manager, Bob Bradley named Corona to the provisional roster for the friendly match against Mexico that took place on Aug. 10. Unfortunately for player and coach, Bradley was fired before the official roster was announced.

“I guess [the U.S. Soccer Federation] found out Bradley talked to me, so they fired him,” joked Corona before adding that had he been named to the official squad. “I think I would have accepted.”

Of course a couple hours after this was posted, it was announced that Corona has been called in by the Mexican U-22 team for some upcoming friendlies.  Should be interesting to see which direction he takes since he is eligible to play for three different countries.

Oh yeah, here are the latest FIFA world rankings.  The US moves up from 30 to 28.  Mexico is still holding down 20.
