If you haven’t noticed yet, we have one new addition to the site.  You can now take a look at the various jerseys worn by the USMNT throughout the years.  Some of those older photos are pretty cool.  Also, we are going to relaunch our Top 5 Lists series this week.  Howie has one that should be up later today or tomorrow and we will have other guest writers contributing to the series over the next few weeks.

I know there was some confusion about what channel/time for Friday’s qualifier against Jamaica, but it looks like it was finalized for 6:30 PM Eastern on ESPN, WatchESPN, UniMas.

ESPN’s Alex Labidou has a story up on Mix Diskerud.  It also provides us this great stat.

He has never lost during his time as a senior U.S. national (his record in 11 caps is is 10-1-0) and hopes he can help lead the team to wins against Jamaica and Panama.

Even though most of his caps came in the latest not-as-strong Gold Cup, not too shabby.

While the US has continued to “win” the recent battles over dual-national players, Steven Beitashour has decided to play for Iran.

Want a video of Matt Besler making a 50-yard field goal?  Here you go.

Here is a transcript of Michael Bradley’s recent appearance on the BBC’s World Football podcast.  Not shocking, he is proud of his dad (and his mom).

As we posted sometime last week (at least the rumor), it looks like Jozy Altidore’s next manager at Sunderland will be Gus Poyet.  And right after I do this post, Sunderland has confirmed it.

Brek Shea and Maurice Edu put in another shift with Stoke City’s U-21 team in a 2-1 loss to Leicester City’s U-21 team on Monday.  Shea picked up an assist on Stoke City’s lone goal.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with US U-18 midfielder Kyle Scott to talk about life with Chelsea and his game.

And finally, this was brought to my attention yesterday and I thought I would pass it along as I am a fan of a few of these.  Mark Yesilevskiy, the guy that runs Lion Of Vienna Suite, has some pretty cool soccer prints for sale.

A few links for Tuesday night

The USMNT defeated Tijuana 3-0 in a closed-door scrimmage today.  The goals came from Jeff Parke and Will Bruin (twice).  I hope US Soccer puts up some video of the scrimmage online.  But they do have the latest Studio 90 with interviews with Omar Gonzalez and Chris Wondolowski.

Steven Beitashour and Edson Buddle both picked up injuries and will be out for the rest of the camp.

There have been some rumblings of a US-Germany friendly for later this year and it looks like it will be in May in D.C.

Howie posted about Paolo DelPiccolo signing with Eintracht Frankfurt earlier today and Brian Sciaretta nabbed the first interview with DelPiccolo about the move.

Sciaretta also talked to Ryan Miller about leaving Sweden and returning to the US.

Parker Walsh did well enough on his trial that he re-signed with Karlsruher SC through June.

And Charlie Campbell did well on his trial and signed with Ljungskile SK in Sweden.  He joins fellow American Patrick Hopkins.

Philadelphia Union academy player Chris Gomez is headed to Spain for some trials with Malaga and Sevilla.

And finally, Chicago Fire midfielder Corben Bone will be training with Atletico Madrid for a week and a half before joining up with the Fire for the second phase of preseason.
