A long lost links post
   September 20, 2012 (12:37 AM) by Matt Benson

Finally had some time tonight to catch up with some links from the past couple of days.

Howie posted about Marcus Hahnemann returning to the US last week, but here is a story from the Seattle Times with some quotes from Hahnemann.

Brian Sciaretta introduces us to Aron Johannsson over at the NY Times blog.  Johannsson is a 21-year-old Icelandic-American who currently plays for AGF Aarhus in the Danish Superliga (and leads the Superliga with nine goals).

Speaking of leading leagues in goals.  With his hat trick over the weekend, Jozy Altidore has now scored seven of AZ’s 10 goals in league play and leads the Eredivisie in goals so far this year.

I have slowly become a bigger and bigger fan of the Men in Blazers podcast over the last couple months and they had Geoff Cameron on this week for an interview.  Go listen to it just so you can hear “quarterback style” and giggle like a little girl like myself.

Yanks Abroad has a couple interviews up.  One with Cody Cropper and one with Max Morice.

Terrence Boyd decided to get a bald eagle tattoo.

It appears that Nottingham Forest are trying to send Robbie Findley out on loan.

Marc Pelosi started for Liverpool’s youth team in their 3-2 loss to Inter Milan in the NextGen Series yesterday.

Greg Seltzer gives us his top five American players based in Europe under the age of 24.

Robbie Rogers has missed the last couple games for Stevenage with a strained hamstring.

I have heard from a few of you about helping out with the site.  I am going to get back to you guys over the next day or two.  I am also thinking of starting a “weekend commentary” type thread each week so you guys can comment away while watching the games, healthy discussions of course, while also linking highlights and other news.  A good idea?

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.

Catching up with some links
   August 21, 2012 (11:28 PM) by Matt Benson

I am still playing catch up on links, but here are a few things from the last couple days.

While we have posted a couple times that Cody Cropper has been playing with Southampton’s reserve team in recent weeks, we haven’t known his full status with the club.  According to Brian Sciaretta, the club has finally made an offer to the US U-20 goalkeeper.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist told some radio program earlier today that Stoke City have some interest in Maurice Edu.  So the two starting centerbacks from the USMNT’s big win over Mexico at Azteca could be paired together in the central midfield.

Tony Taylor recently told Nick Leyden that Panama have been recruiting the 23-year-old forward.  Taylor was born and raised in the US, but he holds a Panamanian passport through both of his parents.  Since he played with the US at the 2009 U-20 World Cup, he would have to make a FIFA one-time switch if he does decide to swap countries.

As for some other dual citizens, here is a Google-translated article about Anthony Brooks and his recent camp experience with the German U-20 team.  While it appears that Julian Green will be getting a US youth call-up in the near future.

Michael Parkhurst talked to Brian Sciaretta this week about Nordsjaelland and the upcoming Champions League matches.

Speaking of Sciaretta, he was interviewed by The Shin Guardian about various young American players in Europe.

And finally, Yale product Max Morice has signed a professional contract with Rennes in France.  He has the French ties as his father, Pierre (talk about a French name), played professionally with Nantes.
