A leftover from yesterday’s Valentine’s Day fun, but here is a flow chart to pick your USMNT sweetheart.  Looks like I ended up with Clint Dempsey.  The US also dropped four spots to #32 in the latest FIFA world rankings.

Looks like Stuart Holden will make Bolton’s squad this weekend in their match against Nottingham Forest.

I posted yesterday about Justin Moose scoring a goal for SJK in their latest friendly and here it is in highlight form (1:25 mark).

Sticking with the goals in friendlies theme, Brian Span scored a goal for Djurgårdens IF in their 3-2 win over FC Lahti.

As expected, Alejandro Bedoya re-signed a short-term deal with Helsingborgs IF and joined up with the team in Portugal.

We posted about Jonathan Borrajo signing with Mjøndalen in Norway last month and here is a little video feature on him on Mjøndalen’s site.  If anything else, jam out to the Black Keys in the background.

Conor O’Brien was in the starting lineup for Nordsjælland in a 2-1 loss to Norwegian side IK Start in a friendly.

Brad Guzan talks to the local press about having a week off from Premier League action.

We knew that goalkeeper Samir Badr was coming back to the US to head to training camp with an unnamed MLS team after his training stint with Manchester United.  It looks like that team is the Columbus Crew.

And finally, teenager Nick Ledesma has signed a six-month deal with Alemannia Aachen’s U-19 team.

Jonathan Borrajo signs with Mjøndalen
   January 24, 2013 (5:06 PM) by Matt Benson

It has been a pretty slow news day, but Jonathan Borrajo has signed a one-year deal with Norwegian Adeccoligaen (second division) side Mjøndalen according to this tweet.

Borrajo appeared in one game for the New York Red Bulls in 2012 after playing in 27 games for the Norwegian club HamKam in 2011, so Borrajo is no stranger to the Norwegian Adeccoligaen.

And in case you needed an excuse to pick your favorite Adeccoligaen team, they already have fellow Americans Kyle Helton and Rhett Bernstein.

They kick off the 2013 season on April 7 when they head to Kongsvinger.

Omar Gonzalez is loaned to Nurnberg and other tidbits
   January 5, 2012 (1:01 PM) by Matt Benson

While everyone has been hinting at a possible loan move south of the border (Club America?), Omar Gonzalez is actually headed to Germany until the middle of February on a loan deal with Nurnberg.  Gonzalez will get the chance to play with Timothy Chandler and could make his debut on January 21 against Hertha Berlin once the German Bundesliga returns from its winter break.

Staying in Germany, Jermaine Jones has been banned for eight weeks by the German Football Federation after his foot stomp of Marco Reus’ injured foot in the German Cup.

Jonathan Borrajo, who played with Norwegian side Ham-Kam this past season, is headed back to the US to play for the New York Red Bulls.

And according to various reports, French club Sochaux are making a run at Maurice Edu.

This and that for Tuesday
   November 1, 2011 (10:09 PM) by Matt Benson

I know some people have been asking for an injury update on Zak Whitbread, myself included, but it looks like he is getting closer to returning to the field.  There was a chance for him to play in today’s reserve squad match, but manager Paul Lambert decided to hold off on letting him play.

Brian Sciaretta takes his guess at the USMNT roster for the upcoming November friendlies right here.  He also makes a case for Michael Parkhurst right here.

Speaking of those “friendlies”, Slovenia threw the first punch.  It’s on Slovenia.  It’s on.

Soccer America has an interview up with new U-18 head coach Richie Williams.

For those of you interested in the third round draw of the German Cup, you can find the games right here.

According to Örebro SK’s website, Jonathan Borrajo is training with the club this week.  Borrajo currently plays for Ham-Kam in the Norwegian Adeccoligaen.

And this has nothing to do with US Soccer or American players, but Bordeaux’s new stadium looks like it could be ridiculous.
