Jozy Altidore is already scoring at Sunderland & other links
   July 11, 2013 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson

Jozy Altidore officially became a member of Sunderland on Monday.  And on Tuesday, he was with the team in Italy and scoring a goal in a preseason friendly.  Here is a photo of Jozy from that game.  And here is a story from Sunderland’s website with some quotes from Altidore about signing with the team.

While Jozy has scored four goals in his last four games with the USMNT, Chris Wondow…..I mean Wondolowski has scored four in his last two games.  And in a cool story, Drew Carey donated some money to two charities in order to buy the “Wondowlowski” jersey.

Jurgen Klinsmann told the press after Tuesday’s game that he did not start Stuart Holden, Oguchi Onyewu or Herculez Gomez due to their prior knee injuries and the turf field at Jeld-Wen Field.

US Soccer has added two videos to their YouTube channel this week, field-level highlights from last Friday’s game against Guatemala and a video of Holden breaking down his first career USMNT goal from 2009.

While Jozy is no longer at AZ Alkmaar, here is what Aron Johannsson and AZ will be wearing next year.  Some interesting collars.

Tony Taylor scored another goal for AC Omonia in a preseason friendly against Xanthi Skoda on Tuesday.  Taylor scored last week against Hapoel Tel Aviv and here are highlights from that game (Taylor’s goal is around the 9:40 mark).

Bryan Gerzicich is now at Hapoel Tel Aviv and Brian Sciaretta got some quotes from him about the move.  Sciaretta also talked to Diego Chavarri about his loan move to Iran.

Here is a story from a local Reading paper on Danny Williams.  It also includes this photo of him from training.

The Daily Mail (yeah, I know) is saying Maurice Edu will be making a permanent move back to Bursaspor.  Edu played in only one league game for Stoke City in 2012-13 before going out on loan to Bursaspor and appearing in 11 league games before ending the season with an injury.

Seb Hines hasn’t been participating with Middlesbrough’s preseason as he continues to rehab from knee surgery.

While he likely won’t play much with Bayern Munich’s senior team during the season, Julian Green continues to see the field with the first team during the preseason.

Michael Hoyos is headed to Greece to play with OFI this upcoming season on a season-long loan.  He also wants to play for the US.

Tyler Ruthven is no longer with IK Brage in Sweden.

Want some news on some youth players?  Emerson Hyndman, FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman’s grandson, has signed an extension with Fulham.  And US U-18 midfielder Omar Thompson has signed a professional contract with Wigan Athletic.

Random things for Monday
   June 3, 2013 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

So yesterday was a fun one.  I know it was only a friendly and a “weaker” squad, but it is still nice to beat Germany.

If you missed out on the phone, here are the highlights.  I am hoping going to do another stat dump either later tonight or tomorrow looking at this game and Friday’s game against Jamaica.  I am also going to setup our first “Guess the Score” contest in a while either Tuesday or Wednesday for the Jamaica game.

Here are 10 things that we didn’t learn according to The Shin Guardian.

Moving on to some new kits for next season, here is a look at Terrence Boyd and Rapid Vienna’s new home kit.

 And here is what Seb Hines and Middlesbrough will be wearing next season.

Greg Seltzer has a couple nuggets up on Michael Parkhurst and Maurice Edu.

Kyle Scott, a U-16 British-American midfielder at Chelsea, is being targeted by some big teams in Europe.  He has been playing with England’s youth teams, so who knows if the US is in the picture or not.

It looks like most people like Mix Diskerud’s middle name the best out of all the players on the provisional Gold Cup roster.

While US-Germany was the main attraction on Sunday, we did have some players score some goals at the club level.  Justin Moose scored for SJK against KooTeePee (still my favorite team name).  Marc Heider scored for Holstein Kiel against Hessen Kassel in the German Regionalliga.  And back in Finland, Christian Eissele scored three goals in Kemi Kings’ win over ORPa.  That gives Eissele 12 goals across all competitions since January 1.  You can keep up-to-date with all these goals with our goal tracker.

Thursday morning links
   April 18, 2013 (12:29 AM) by Matt Benson

A few in-house things.  As I posted in yesterday’s The OT Report, here is a link to Sacha Kljestan’s goal from yesterday.  Still can’t find a video that I can embed on this site.  Also, a shameless plug for the latest Inside the Numbers where I update where Jozy Altidore’s 28 goals stack up in Europe.

Now for some links.

Staying with Jozy, here is a post-game interview from the weekend after his hat trick.

Stuart Holden has one more game left with Sheffield Wednesday until his loan deal ends, although it looks like there is some chatter about extending the deal until the end of the season.

Michael Bradley and Roma are headed to the Coppa Italia final on May 26, which means he is likely going to miss the first week of the USMNT camp.  Bradley also completed 96.7% of his passes in yesterday’s match against Inter Milan.

Speaking of those USMNT upcoming games, Steven Goff gives us even more updated numbers on ticket sales.

Want a random youtube video of various Brad Guzan saves from this season?  Alright.

Doug McIntyre of ESPN Insider looks at Freddy Adu’s uncertain USMNT future.

It looks like Sebastian Lletget had missed some time with an injury, but is back and playing with West Ham’s U-21 team again.  Doesn’t appear to be anything serious.

It doesn’t look like we will see Seb Hines in many of Middlesbrough’s remaining games this season.

And finally, US Soccer youth player Joshua Perez is headed to Italy to join Fiorentina’s youth academy.

Friday morning links
   November 30, 2012 (12:45 AM) by Matt Benson

A couple quick links for your Friday morning reading pleasure.

Here is a quick write-up from Bobby Wood’s start for 1860 Munich earlier this week.

Ryan Miller looks back at his season with Halmstads BK.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with US U-20 forward Jack McBean the week of MLS Cup.

Clint Dempsey thinks he was undervalued at Fulham.  He will get his chance to score against Fulham this weekend.

Doug McIntyre of ESPN Insider wonders if Icelandic-American Aron Johannsson could bolster the US attack.

Seb Hines is hoping his recent strong play has caught the eye of Jurgen Klinsmann.

Greg Seltzer likes numbers.  We like numbers.  He looked at some numbers about Oguchi Onyewu.

I missed this last week, but Eric Lichaj has a pretty gnarly mustache going on right now.

Monday night links
   August 27, 2012 (10:15 PM) by Matt Benson

A few things for Monday night.

We already took a quick look across the internet at Geoff Cameron’s debut at Stoke City, but here is a new story/interview with Cameron from Stoke City’s official site.  And here is a post-game video interview with Cameron.

Bayern Munich U-19 German-American Julian Green had an assist on Nikola Jelsic’s bicycle kick goal this weekend and you can check that out right here.

I know some Carlos Bocangera/transfer rumors are slowing beginning, but Rangers might be on the only team in the Scottish Third Division with a third kit.

We posted about Max Morice’s move to Rennes last week, but Greg Seltzer got some quotes from Morice.

We haven’t posted much about Middlesbrough center back Seb Hines since he would need to make a one-time FIFA switch to the US, but we are aware of him.  That said, he scored this weekend and you can see highlights of his goal right here.

And I missed this over the summer, but it looks like Mjällby AIF forward Samuel Petrone is currently on loan with Leiknir Reykjavík in Iceland.  Petrone only appeared in four games with Mjällby last season, but has played in five games with Leiknir Reykjavík since late July.  His loan is for the rest of the 2012 season.

Some links for Monday
   March 19, 2012 (4:45 PM) by Matt Benson

I’m still playing catch up from the past couple days, but here are some links for Monday.

The US U-23′s defeated the Atlanta Silverbacks, 3-0, on Sunday.   The goals scorers were Brek Shea (x2) and Michael Stephens.  I posted the Studio 90 video earlier today, which has a couple quick highlights (one of Shea’s goal looks real nice) and some post-game interviews.  Here is a post-game recap from the Silverbacks, which has their starting XI, but I can’t find anything anywhere on what the US lineup looked like.  If you have any clue, fill us in in the comments.  Also, it looks like Freddy Adu has been voted by the players as the captain of the team.

I also posted this with The OT Report, but in case you missed it, Josh Gatt has been called back to Molde FK and won’t be with the U-23s due to various injuries at Molde and them starting their season this upcoming weekend.’s Leander Schaerlaeckens did a nice little Q&A with Jurgen Klinsmann on a couple of topics.

About 18,000 tickets have already been sold for the US-Scotland friendly on May 26 in Jacksonville according to Steven Goff.  One of the largest crowds ever in Jacksonville for a soccer game.

Chris Rolfe came back from a little ankle injury and played 19 minutes in Aalborg’s 1-1 draw to HB Køge today.

I know Jonathan Spector was pulled from last weekend’s game due to some injury and it looks like he has some kind of thigh injury.

Derby County forward Conor Doyle will be out the next 4-6 weeks with a torn hamstring.

Soccer Banter recently did a Q&A with Walsall’s Anton Peterlin.

Brian Sciaretta recently talked to Sean Cunningham about his loan deal to Stabaek.

Mr. Sciaretta also introduces us to Seb Hines, a 23-year-old centerback who currently plays at Middlesbrough.  Hines has played with England in the past at the youth level, but would be willing to play for the US if he got the call.  Since he would need to file a one-time switch with FIFA, we will keep our eye on him, but don’t expect us to post about him in future The OT Reports until he commits to the US (if he ever does).  Sort of like Adam Henley.

Good talk, see you out there.
