Landskrona vs. Värnamo Highlights
   July 3, 2014 (1:37 PM) by Matt Benson
 

This game took place last Sunday, but it featured three goals by two Americans so it is more than worthy to post a couple days late.  Andrew Stadler scored twice while Paul Torres scored the first goal in Landskrona’s 3-0 win over Värnamo in Swedish Superettan action.  Here are the highlights.

A bunch of links for Tuesday
   April 15, 2014 (12:57 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A lot of things to check out.

US Soccer’s website has a bunch of goodies from the last couple of days.  They stopped by Toronto to do a little Q&A action with Michael Bradley.  They also have the latest Road to the Roster podcast up with Jurgen Klinsmann.  He talks about the Mexico friendly and Jozy Altidore among other things.  And they also have a Q&A up with World Cup hopeful DeAndre Yedlin.

The US U-20 team is down in Texas for the Dallas Cup and is already 2-0-0 after the first two games.  They kicked things off with a 3-2 win over River Plate.  Here is a photo of Ben Spencer celebrating after scoring one of the goals.  On Monday, the team defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0.  Here is a photo of Tijuana and US U-20 teammates Paul Arriola and Amando Moreno celebrating the win.  The US leads Group C with six points and will play Tigres on Wednesday as they look to advance to the semifinals.

While we are on the topic of the U-20 team, Brian Sciaretta caught up with Rubio Rubin before the Dallas Cup to talk about the tournament and joining FC Utrecht.  Rubin turned 18 in March, allowing him to sign a professional contract, but Utrecht can’t register his contract until July 1.

We had some goals this past weekend in Europe.  Alfredo Morales scored his first of the season in a 2-1 loss.  Juan Agudelo scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal in Utrecht’s 2-1 win.  And Michael Farfan came off the bench and scored the game-tying goal in Cruz Azul’s 2-2 draw.  The goal earned Farfan a spot on Medio Tiempo’s Team of the Week as a sub.

Back to Agudelo for a second.  Word on the street is that Stoke City manager Mark Hughes flew to Holland to watch him play this past weekend.  And Stoke City will be looking to get a second appeal on his UK work permit at the end of this month or the beginning of May.

Just in case people forgot, Jozy Altidore is one of the good guys.

ESPN FC’s Alex Labidou wrote some words (or typed them) after talking to FC Nantes’ Alejandro Bedoya.

Stuart Holden talked to the fine folks over at Fox Sports about trying to recover from yet another knee injury.  Stu’s sock game was on point.

Here is a really short film on Clint Dempsey by Degree Men, which was apparently directed by Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.  Dempsey also scored two goals this past weekend, giving him six on the season in only 303 minutes in MLS play after scoring only once in 922 minutes last year with Seattle.

A few guys saw the field on Monday.  After battling some swelling in his knee, Danny Williams returned to Reading’s starting lineup and played 61 minutes in a 1-1 draw.  Bobby Wood came off the bench, played 24 minutes and picked up a yellow card in 1860 Munich’s 4-2 loss to Dynamo Dresden.

Over in Sweden, Matt Pyzdrowski went 90 minutes between the sticks while Eric Pothast played 45 minutes and picked up a yellow card in Ängelholm’s 3-2 win over Jönköpings Södra.  And Alex Horwath started at goalkeeper and Brandon McDonald came off the bench for the final two minutes in Ljungskile’s 0-0 draw to Landskrona, which had Andrew Stadler and Paul Torres each go 90 minutes.

So I have decided to learn how to make GIFs since sometimes they are easier to post/watch than some of these weird video players that some highlight sites use (plus GIFs are just awesome).  I practiced a bunch this weekend making a few of the goals scored in MLS play by some World Cup hopefuls, so here they are:  Clint Dempsey 1, Clint Dempsey 2, Chris Wondolowski, Maurice Edu and Kyle Beckerman.  It is a learning process as I try to figure out size and quality while not trying to make these 10 MB files, but it went better than I expected.

A bit of this and that for Wednesday
   January 22, 2014 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

We had two goal scorers on Tuesday.  Aron Johannsson scored his 20th goal of the season across all competitions in AZ Alkmaar’s 2-0 win over Roda JC in the Dutch Cup (highlights).  Paul Arriola scored again for Dorados in their 3-1 win over Estudiantes Tecos in Copa MX action (highlights).

Stoke City’s website finally announced the Juan Agudelo loan deal yesterday.  According to that link, he/Stoke City have to wait four months from the date of the original work permit appeal hearing (his hearing was in late November) before he can re-apply for a UK work permit.  Grant Wahl also spoke to Agudelo about everything that has gone down this week.  As it says in the Wahl interview, it doesn’t sound highly that he will be able to play this weekend due to paperwork.

Grant Wahl also did a video interview with MLS commissioner Don Garber last week where he talks about a bunch of MLS stuff, including topics like Michael Bradley’s return, Maurice Edu’s potential return and how they haven’t been able to make it work financially to get DaMarcus Beasley back in the league.

Only a couple things USMNT-related for today.  A Q&A with Benny Feilhaber and a video with Brad Davis.

Some injury updates.

Fabian Johnson had to be subbed out of a friendly due to a bruised thigh over the weekend.  Hopefully it was just a precaution.

John Brooks has returned to training individually off to the side with Hertha Berlin.  He picked up his latest knee injury earlier this month.

While it was speculated back in November/December that Jonathan Spector and his thigh injury wouldn’t be able to return until January, it now looks like he won’t be back until the end of February.

Anthony Wallace has been spotted in Sweden trialing with Landskrona BoIS.  Landskrona have already signed Americans Paul Torres and Andrew Stadler this offseason.

Daniel Stevens has signed with FC Viikingit in the Finnish Ykkönen (second tier).  Stevens scored 12 goals last season with BK-46 in the Kakkonen (third tier).

Fulham’s U-21 team has gone unbeaten in 12 games this season with Emerson Hyndman coming off the bench in their latest 1-0 win over West Ham United.

Finally, Tom Marshall introduces us to two Americans (Joel Soñora and Ryan Palmbaum) moving up the ranks with Boca Juniors’ youth system.
