Hump day links
   September 25, 2013 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

It’s a Wednesday and here are some links.

Yesterday saw a few guys play in some domestic cup competitions, including 18-year-old Duane Holmes making his professional debut in the Capital One Cup.  And it sounds like he played well.

Huddersfield’s best player on the night was 18-year-old substitute Duane Holmes, who terrified Hull with his direct running in the second half.

The Capital One Cup also gave us a Brad Friedel sighting in Tottenham’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa.  Going back to last season, Friedel has a shutout streak of 357 minutes.  And that game also brought us this:

Will Packwood played and scored in a developmental squad match for Birmingham City this week.  Good to see him recovering from his brutal leg injury.

On top of being named to ESPN FC’s Team of the Week (and OT’s Player of the Week!), Brad Guzan was named to BBC’s Garth Crooks’s Team of the Week.  Guzan also did a Q&A with US Scccer’s website.

Geoff Cameron told some local press in the UK that he has been encouraged by Mark Hughes to push up the field more at Stoke City.

It doesn’t look like DaMarcus Beasley’s hamstring injury is that serious and he should play this weekend.

John Brooks’ dislocated elbow will keep him out for 2-3 weeks, which means he could miss the October qualifiers.

Luis Gil spoke to Brian Sciaretta about his recent interest from Mexico.  As for now, his heart is with the US.

Joshua Perez, 15-year-old youth player, has been training with Fiorentina’s reserve team the last three weeks.

And finally, a new USMNT project should be up on the site soon. This is something that I have been wanting to to do for the last two years, but I finally sat down and knocked a bunch of it out last night and should finalize things over the next week.  And Howie and I need to bring back the Top 5 Lists.  I might try to bring in some guest writers for that as well.

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.
