Some links for Thursday
   October 30, 2014 (12:22 AM) by Matt Benson
 

First off, you haven’t read it already, you need to check out Will’s interview with Patrick McLain.  Some interesting stories of his time at Chivas USA, including this one:

Unfortunately, the next coaching staff to come in midway through the 2013 season was very different. The coaching staff was unable to communicate in English and were not good about translating for those of us who didn’t speak Spanish. I was punished by this coaching staff towards the end of the season for not understanding something that was said to me in Spanish, because it was not translated for me, therefore I did not respond to it. I was called into the coach’s office and helplessly tried to plead my ignorance of my apparent disrespect. There was no interpreter present and my message was not received. As punishment, I was demoted from second on the depth chart to third.

Yay Chivas USA?

We have had a few goals over the last couple days.  Terrence Boyd scored his first goal since May in RB Leipzig’s 3-1 win over Erzgebirge Aue in the DFB Pokal on Wednesday (highlights).  And of course he broke out the cyclops.  Sacha Kljestan made his first start of the season and scored his first goal of the season in Anderlecht’s 3-2 win over Kortrijk (highlights).  Bryan Gerzicich scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday in Maccabi Petah Tikva’s 1-0 win over Hapoel Haifa (highlights).

Aron Johannsson returned to AZ Alkmaar’s first team yesterday, playing in the 5-0 win over GVVV in the KNVB Beker.

John Brooks also got his first start since September in Hertha Berlin’s loss (on PKs) to Arminia Bielefeld in the DFB Pokal.

Danny Williams returned to the field this week in Reading U-21s’ 2-0 win over Brighton on Monday.

Michael Orozco and Puebla are headed to the Copa MX final after beating Lobos BUAP on Tuesday.

Alejandro Bedoya could be leaving Nantes come January according to his agent.

Bobby Wood has been demoted to 1860 Munich’s U-23 team.

This is what Michael Bradley looks like post-surgery (with the rare smile!).  And in the latest in Jurgen Klinsmann vs. the (US Soccer) world, Bradley and Klinsi don’t see eye to eye on where he should be playing.

It is that time of year when MLS players head to Europe for training stints and first up is Sean Johnson to Hull City.

Here is a lengthy read on DeAndre Yedlin.

Phil Saunders has re-signed with BI / Bolungarvik in Iceland.

According to Reading’s website, Andrija Novakovich has been called up by the US U-20 team, who will play Russia, Ireland and Canada in Spain this month.

Greg Seltzer gives us some European-based names for the US U-23 team for the 2016 Olympics.

And finally, here is your 2018 World Cup logo.  It is actually not that bad.

A few links for Thursday
   October 2, 2014 (12:00 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A few links for your Thursday morning reading pleasure.

As we begin October, John gives us his current outlook at next summer’s Gold Cup roster.

The roster for next week’s friendlies should probably be released this weekend and various people online are making guesses at that roster, including Jon Arnold and Matthew Doyle.

Steven Goff gives us some more information about the next two weeks regarding US Soccer.  Sounds like all the names will be released at once, but guys might only go to one of the games due to MLS’s schedule next week.  Some of the young guns (Emerson Hyndman, Cody Cropper and Rubio Rubin) could be headed to Brazil with the US U-23 team instead of the senior team friendlies.  And US Soccer is trying to schedule another friendly next month in Europe during the international week when they play at Ireland.

One player who could potentially be on the US roster next week is Miguel Ibarra and Brian Sciaretta caught up with the Minnesota United midfielder about the rumors.

Aron Johannsson has returned to full training at AZ Alkmaar.  And here is a vine of him running around.

Julian Green has also returned to full training this week after picking up a rib injury which caused him to miss some games.

Danny Williams is slowly getting back from his knee injury and it looks like he is running around on grass now.

Adam Henley has finally returned from his ankle injury and logged some playing time for Blackburn Rovers earlier this week.

While those guys have returned from injury, Jonathan Spector is expected to miss some time with a thigh injury.

Gedion Zelalem scored a nice little goal for Arsenal’s U-19 team against Galatasaray yesterday in the UEFA Youth League.  The guys over at The Short Fuse also looked into the curious case of his citizenship.

Here is a photo of Bobby Wood and teammates enjoying Oktoberfest.

Brian McBride is one of five people selected by Fulham chairman Shahid Khan to help in Fulham’s search for a new manager.

And finally, we have a Devann Yao sighting!  He was last seen parting ways with UR La Louvière Centre in Belgium’s third division and now he has popped up on Neustrelitz in the German Regionalliga.  He has made one appearance for the club so far in 2014-15.

The weekend is finally here links
   September 12, 2014 (6:19 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A few things to get in before the weekend starts up.

Brek Shea’s loan to Birmingham City became official yesterday.  He will be with the club for three months.  Birmingham City’s manager Lee Clark also said he even tried to buy Shea permanently before the season, so it looks like Clark will give him a chance to play.  Here is also a short video interview with Brekken.

As for some bad news, Freiburg midfielder Caleb Stanko tore his ACL.  Stanko has been mainly playing with Freiburg II this season and was hoping to make his senior team debut this year.

US Soccer put up some highlights of the U-20’s trip to Argentina.  Here is the game against Racing FC’s reserves and here is the game against Argentina’s U-20 team.

Here are some fun photos of the US’s game against the Czech Republic from last week.

Noah Davis gives a basic rundown of the new youngsters on the USMNT.

Danny Williams is hoping to return to the field in November.

Brian Sciaretta introduces us to Israeli-American Kenny Saief, who is currently at Gent in Belgium.

Mike L. Goodman dives into the development of soccer statistics.

Have fun this weekend.

Inside the Numbers: A look at last year’s Championship
   July 30, 2014 (6:35 AM) by Matt Benson
 

I posted some numbers last Wednesday and I thought I would post some more this week with the English League Championship starting up a week from Friday.

As the same as last week, all these numbers are coming from the website Squawka, which gets its numbers from Opta.  I will state this from the beginning, some of these are just basic numbers that make the various guys look good without any help from me, while some other things were edited down until I was able to get someone on a list.  I was trying my best to make the various Americans look good (USA! USA! USA!).  That said, here we go.

Tim Ream is coming off his best season at Bolton, winning Player of the Year honors by both the team and the fans.  While he shifted between centerback and left back, he did his job well and without fouling opposing players.  Ream committed only eight fouls on the season in 3675 minutes played.  His 0.20 fouls per 90 minutes was the lowest rate in the Championship last season among defenders who played in at least 35 games.

ream

Danny Williams will miss the beginning of the season after having an operation performed on his knee.  Much like Alejandro Bedoya, Williams did a good job of putting his shots on frame.  Squawka has a stat called shot accuracy percentage, which is shots on target (minus blocked shots) divided by total shot attempts (minus blocked shots).  Williams put nearly 60 percent of his shot attempts on target and this is with 27 of his 40 total shot attempts coming from outside the penalty area.

williams

Duane Holmes is one young player who is looking for more playing time in 2014-15 and will likely get it at Huddersfield Town.  The 19-year-old midfielder appeared in 21 games last season between Huddersfield Town and a loan stint with Yeovil Town.  In fact, only four players under the age of 20 logged more minutes last season in the Championship than Holmes’ 776 minutes.

holmes

Another young promising player in the Championship is centerback Will Packwood.  While Packwood appeared in only 12 games in the Championship (he did play eight games in League Two on a loan stint with Bristol Rovers), he was very active when he did play.  Packwood averaged 16.17 interceptions/blocked shots/clearances per 90 minutes in 2013-14, easily the most among players under the age of 22.  Also, his 12.83 clearances per 90 minutes was also the most among players under the age of 22.

packwood

We are one week away from the Championship starting up and hopefully those four players (and Jonathan Spector, Eric Lichaj and Zak Whitbread) continue to play well in 2014-15.

Tuesday morning link thing
   July 29, 2014 (12:21 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Some more links for your Tuesday morning reading pleasure.

Let’s start off with a stupid but awesome USMNT shirt.

Julian Green doesn’t want a loan and wants to break into the Bayern Munich lineup.  Here is also an adorable photo of him as a young kid cheering on Bayern Munich with his dad.

According to Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, Jozy Altidore’s hamstring is now fine.

I posted last week about Danny Williams’ surgery.  It now looks like he was told by the club to have surgery over the summer while he tried to avoid having it.  But he is going to be out several weeks.

Brad Guzan is aware that he has to prove himself if he wants to take over the #1 job for the USMNT.

The player currently in front of him for that spot, Tim Howard, will be wearing purple in away games this season with Everton.

Geoff Cameron talked to the people over at New England Soccer Today about his World Cup experience.

We learned about Terrence Boyd’s ACL yesterday, but here is an interview he did in Germany last week prior to his injury.  And the headline/quote is funny.

Bundesliga.com did a little write up on a few of the Americans who play among the various leagues in Germany.

US U-20 midfielder Eric Lickert was last seen with SC Freiburg’s U-19 team last year, but he signed a professional contract with German 3. Liga side SpVgg Unterhaching for this season.

With the European season starting up, Brian Sciaretta wrote about five prospects who could make their debuts this year.  Mr. Sciaretta also talked to Pablo Punyed last week about playing in Europa League.

Here is a cool photo of Bobby Wood and Brek Shea from this past weekend’s friendly between their respective clubs.

According to this report, Jonathan Spector has a “niggle in his groin.”  I’m assuming that is like a strain.

Jon-Paul Pittman’s trial with English Conference National side Grimsby Town wasn’t very long as they ended up signing him on a one-year deal.

Mukwelle Akale scored a goal for Villarreal’s U-18 team over the weekend and Top Drawer Soccer has the footage of the goal.

Cal Poly’s Ariel Lassiter signed a professional contract with Swedish Superttan side GAIS.  He will now become teammates with Bobby Warshaw.

While FIFA updated their rankings a week or so ago.  Elo, who I personally like a little bit more, finally updated their numbers post-World Cup.  The US dropped from #13 to #17.  Costa Rica is now #15, while Mexico is now #11.

And finally, we are slowly adding more content to the site aside from highlights and links over the next couple months.  I know one interview of someone who plays in Germany will hopefully be up on the site in the next couple of days.  There is also going to be some other more opinionated-type stuff on the USMNT coming out soon as well.  Plus, I will keep posting Jermaine Jones Instagram photos.

A bunch of link goodies for Thursday
   July 24, 2014 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

This summer has been a busy one and here are a bunch more links from the last couple of days.

The big news of yesterday was that DaMarcus Beasley signed a DP contract with the Houston Dynamo.  He becomes the 10th current USMNT player on a designated player contract with MLS.

Danny Williams had surgery on his knee earlier this week.  This is the second time in the last five months that Williams has had some form of surgery on his knee.  No word on how serious or how long he will be out.

Freddy Adu appears to be in talks with FK Jagodina in Serbia.  And he is also getting some interest from a team in Cyprus.

Juan Agudelo has been in Florida training with Orlando City, but much like Brek Shea a couple months ago, this is just a training thing.  He won’t be signing with Orlando City.

Jozy Altidore’s summer vacation is finally ending as he is expected to be back with Sunderland today.

Much like Jermaine Jones throwing out the first pitch with the Dodgers a couple weeks ago, Geoff Cameron did the same with the Red Sox last week and Brad Guzan did it with the Cubs this week.

Do you like stats and numbers?  I did a quick look at Tim Howard, Brad Guzan, Geoff Cameron and Alejandro Bedoya yesterday.  I plan on doing another one next week on a couple guys from the Championship.

A few of the younger US players (and prospects) will be making the trek to the US with their European teams in the next week.  Gedion Zelalem is on Arsenal’s roster which will take on the New York Red Bulls on Saturday.  Emerson Hyndman made Fulham’s squad which is headed to Jacksonville to take on DC United this weekend.  And we already know that Julian Green is with Bayern Munich as they take on the MLS All-Stars.  Pep Guardiola spoke to the US press about Green and how he doesn’t want to loan him out this year.

Another youth player, Lynden Gooch, has been receiving some praise from Sunderland fans this week.  Gooch came off the bench with Sunderland’s first team in a friendly against Carlisle United on Tuesday.  Then he made another appearance with the first team on Wednesday in a friendly against Hartlepool United and assisted on one goal (GIF highlights).

Alfredo Morales scored a goal for FC Ingolstadt in a friendly against Nurnberg earlier this week.  Here is a photo of Morales in action.

Sacha Kljestan is still with Anderlecht and went the full 90 minutes in a friendly earlier this week.

Brek Shea is receiving some praise for his play in Stoke City’s friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Edgar Castillo (and his odd #1 jersey number) talked to Tom Marshall about still trying to keep the USMNT dream alive.

Bobby Wood came off the bench in 1860 Munich’s 3-0 win over SV Heimstetten in a friendly yesterday.  Here is a photo of him in action.

For those of you holding out to buy a Junior Flores/Borussia Dortmund jersey, you can go get those #22 jerseys now.  For those ultimate soccer jersey hipsters, Alonso Hernandez will wear #13 for Monterrey in Mexico.

Will Packwood played with Birmingham City’s U-21 team the other day in a private friendly.  Sounds like he missed a little time recently “after suffering from illness”, but he is now back in action.

The US U-20 team now knows the format for January’s CONCACAF U-20 Championship.  It will be two groups of six teams with the winners of each group clinching a spot in the U-20 World Cup, while the second and third place teams from each group doing a four-team playoff for the last two spots.

One player who might be on that U-20 team, Fernando Arce Jr., talked to Brian Sciaretta about selecting to play for the US over Mexico even though his dad played for Mexico.

Goalkeeper Phil Saunders has signed with Icelandic 1st Division side BÍ/Bolungarvik.

Former Bucknell product Conor O’Brien made the jump to Denmark out of college and now another Bison is headed to Denmark.  This time it is Mayowa Alli and he is signing with Vensyssel in the Danish First Division (second tier).

With Roma in Boston this week, Keith Costigan talked to Roma president James Pallotta and Pallotta claims that we can expect “an announcement in the next few weeks” in regards to an American going to the club.  Could the DeAndre Yedlin deal be back on or could it be another player?  Or could it be nothing?  I have no clue.

US Soccer and Sporting Kansas City are building a new National Training and Coaching Development Center in Kansas City.  Sounds like this would be the main training hub for coaches and refs, while I think they will also get some USMNT/USWNT/youth team camps at the complex (along with the StubHub Center in Carson, California) once it is completed.

In the random but awesome jersey department.  I want this jersey of a lower level Spanish team.  And if the Big Ten had pro-style jerseys with sponsors, here is what one person thinks they would look like.  Basically my Hawkeyes would be Borussia Dortmund.

And finally, this site has been receiving a lot more traffic this month (likely due to the World Cup fever) along with a lot more Twitter and Facebook followers.  If you are new to the site, thanks for checking us out.  If you are not new to the site, thanks for continuing to check us out.  It is nice to see this site grow with all of you.

Danny Williams has surgery on his knee
   July 23, 2014 (12:50 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Danny Williams was likely on the fringe of making the USMNT 30-man World Cup camp roster last spring before a knee injury plagued a lot of the second half of his season.  Williams appeared in 24 of the team’s first 32 league games of the season, but only played in six of Reading’s final 14 games battling an issue with his knee.

While the US were in Brazil, the 25-year-old midfielder was posting a lot of photos of him working out and rehabbing his knee during the summer on his Instagram account.  Then he posted this photo on his account yesterday.

did everything to avoid knee surgery but at the end of the day u have to listen to your body. behind every negative there is a POSITIVE!!!! looking forward to coming back stronger!!! thanks for all the support!

As I type up this post, there has been no official word from Reading on the extent of his injury/surgery or how long the midfielder will be out of action.

2013-14 OT XI
   June 3, 2014 (9:55 PM) by Howie Michaels
 

It wasn’t exactly a banner 12 months for the OT Faithful. Clint Dempsey, a three-time OT MVP and four-time OT XI honoree, moved to Seattle. Michael Bradley, another OT XI stalwart, stayed abroad but became ineligible. Stuart Holden got hurt and then for good measure got hurt again. Jozy Altidore made a move to Sunderland so disastrous that by the end of the year we were celebrating brief sub appearances as progress. Even Matt Taylor, an old OT favorite, had a down year by his 3. Liga Legend standards.

There were dark times, there is no denying.

It was so dark, I got really lazy and took my time doing this. I was all set to drop this on May 22, but then Landon happened so we needed some space.

But, without further delay, here comes the 2013-14 OT XI. As always, these are the best performances by first-team players (sorry, Julian Green) relative to respective leagues.

Goalkeeper
Tim Howard, Everton (England) [2nd appearance]

It wasn’t that long ago that many were calling for Brad Guzan to supplant the long-time Everton stalwart in goal for the national team, a sentiment no doubt boosted by Guzan’s inclusion over Howard in last year’s OT XI. However, Timmy had a bit of a bounceback year as the Toffees surged into 5th place in the Premier League. While some late losses left Everton a bit short of Champions League qualification, Howard was stellar throughout the year, with Everton finishing 2nd in the EPL in goals allowed. Also, I will be deleting my various tweets and other commentaries suggesting Guzan should usurp Howard with the Nats.

Defenders
Fabian Johnson, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (Germany) [2nd]
Will Packwood, Bristol Rovers/Birmingham City (England) [1st]
Tim Ream, Bolton Wanderers (England) [1st]
Geoff Cameron, Stoke City (England) [2nd]

Johnson returns to the OT XI for the 2nd time (previously in 2011-12), nominally at LB on paper. The dual-national wrapped up his tenure with Hoffenheim with another season of playing pretty much everywhere wide as Hoffenheim surged from the relegation playoff last year to mid-table this year. Johnson himself will be bouncing further up the table and joining Borussia Mönchengladbach. Packwood returned from a broken leg by initially going out on loan to League Two’s Bristol Rovers before returning to Birmingham and fighting his way into the starting lineup, earning the Football League Young Player of the Month for February. After a rough first full season in England, Ream rebounded to earn Bolton’s player of the year award while playing both centerback and leftback. Finally, with Dempsey gone and Jozy struggling, Geoff Cameron did a fine job carrying the flag of American field players in England, appearing in all but one Premier League match for the Potters.

Midfielders
Sacha Kljestan, Anderlecht (Belgium) [4th]
Alejandro Bedoya, Nantes (France) [3rd]
Danny Williams, Reading (England) [1st]

Despite missing out on the World Cup roster, long-time OT favorite Kljestan had a career-high eight goals while helping Anderlecht win its third consecutive Belgian title. Bedoya, a two-time OT XI honoree from his first stint in Sweden, made his return to the list following a successful move to Nantes that saw him score five goals, keep Nantes up after being promoted, and give himself a shot at starting in Brazil. While an injury with the national team caused him to miss several late matches (and helped cost Reading a shot at promotion), Danny Williams enjoyed an otherwise strong debut season in England and makes his first appearance on this squad.

Forwards
Terrence Boyd, Rapid Vienna (Austria) [1st]
Aron Johannsson, AZ (Netherlands) [1st]
Christian Eissele Kemi Kings/Brage (Norway/Sweden) [1st]

What we have here is a trio of forwards who all hit 20 goals across all competitions last year. Boyd improved upon his Austrian debut total with 15 in league play and another five in Europa League. He also got two more sweet tattoos, making his old flag tattoo seem tame. Johannsson mostly picked up the slack with former teammate Altidore gone from AZ, scoring 17 in league play and 20 overall. Eissele, the only one of this group without a cap, dropped in 24 goals last season for Kemi Kings in Finland (mostly after the 2012-13 voting was tabulated) before moving to Brage in Sweden this year.

2013-14 MVP
Geoff Cameron, D, Stoke City

While the Premier League continues to grow in popularity stateside, American outfield players have become increasingly rare. However, the best of them had himself a stellar year with the Potters. The jack-of-all-trades played primarily at right back as Stoke became less boring than historically regarded and surged into 9th place.

Goal of the Year
We’re going back to Finland here and the sweet goal by Miles Byass in a 1-0 win for JIPPO over Vikingit in April. Check it out in GIF and YouTube (1:08) below.

Performance of the Year
Tim Howard had six saves in a 1-0 win for Everton at Manchester United, the Toffee’s first win at Old Trafford since August 1992 and undoubtedly a sweet win over former manager David Moyes.

Thanks for waiting (both you the readers and Matt). Fire away in the comments on who we snubbed.

Tuesday morning links
   May 20, 2014 (1:27 AM) by Matt Benson
 

The USMNT camp is chugging along at Stanford this week.  Jeff Carlisle has a notebook of tidbits from the last couple of days.  We are now at 28 of 30 guys in camp with Aron Johannsson and Jermaine Jones being the last two stragglers since they had club commitments on Sunday.  Cody Cropper has also been in camp helping out at goalkeeper since Tim Howard and Brad Guzan were late arrivals (and it never hurts to give him some experience).

US Soccer has a short video recapping the first week of camp.  They also put up some photos from yesterday’s training session.

Grant Wahl talked to Michael Bradley about all three of the US’s opponents in Group G.  One of those opponents, Portugal, already whittled their 30-man roster down to 23 guys.

Slate has a story up on the history of the wonderful 1994 denim kits.  Shameless plug for our USMNT jersey history page.

Back to Cody Cropper for a second as he was offered a contract extension at Southampton.

Here is another Gus Poyet-has-faith-in-Jozy-Altidore story.  Poyet seems to like Jozy.

It looks like Danny Williams is going to have surgery on his knee that gave him issues for a lot of this past last season.

While Greg Seltzer told us that various Eredivisie teams were interested in Juan Agudelo last week, he has confirmed that FC Utrecht is one of those clubs.

I guess there was some talk that Edgar Castillo had signed with Monterrey, but Monterrey’s president is refuting those claims.

Due to some financial issues, Hapoel Tel Aviv had to release a few foreign players including Bryan Gerzicich.

According to this report, US U-20 forward Benji Lopez was on trial with Panathinaikos last week.

El Salvador fans want their national team to call-up Miguel Palafox, who is eligible to play for the US, Mexico and El Salvador.

And finally, a bunch of the ESPN 30 For 30 Soccer Stories have popped up on Youtube.
