A couple links for Wednesday
   September 30, 2015 (12:53 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Getting caught up on the last couple days.

Michael Bradley made his Instagram account public and he is ready for the CONCACAF Cup.  More importantly, only eight photos exist of Bradley smiling throughout the world and six can be found on this account.

Roughly 30-35% of the Rose Bowl will be US supporters come October 10.  This is an improvement over the 2011 Gold Cup Final.

According to one report out of El Salvador, Joel Aguilar will be the ref for the game.  Aguilar was the ref for the SnowClasico in 2013.

Need to get pumped up from the game?  Here is a video for you.

Nothing overly new to report on Copa America Centenario, but leaked photos of the ball have USA on them as part of the logo.

Brad Guzan made WhoScored.com’s Premier League Team of the Weekend after recording nine saves against Liverpool.

Aron Johannsson missed Werder Bremen’s game over the weekend due to an adductor strain.

John Brooks has been missing time with Hertha Berlin due to a thigh injury and he wants to sign a contract extension with Hertha Berlin.

Tim Howard and Everton came back from a two-goal deficit to beat West Brom on Monday.  It was only the second time Everton has some back to win after trailing by 2+ goals in the Premier League era.  The other time was in 1994 against Wimbledon.

Tim Ream was featured in Fulham’s match day program for last week’s game against QPR.

Bob Bradley is doing work in Norway as Stabæk sit in second place (Europa League) with five games remaining.  And now some reports out Norway having Molde FK (league champions in three of the previous four seasons) expressing some interest in Bradley’s services.

Here is a podcast interview with Joe Gyau.

The US U-17 team won one of their games down in Mexico, 1-0, with Joe Gallardo scoring the lone goal.

And finally, Kyle Scott scored a goal with Chelsea’s U-19 team yesterday.

Tuesday’s linkapalooza
   September 2, 2014 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Lots of action this past weekend.

Steven Goff has you covered with a weekend roundup of the bigger names in Europe.  Good to see Rubio Rubin and Emerson Hyndman both made appearances again in their respective team’s starting lineups.  Hyndmann is 18 years old and completing 91 percent of his passes this season, fourth highest in the Championship among players with 100+ attempted passes.

As for some goals, Matt Taylor bagged another two goals in Saarbrücken’s 2-1 win over Nöttingen (highlights).  Taylor has put together a nice little career in the various lower leagues in Germany, scoring 55 goals in 162 league appearances since 2008-09.

Bobby Warshaw went the full 90 minutes and scored the opening goal of the game in Bærum’s 2-1 loss to Hønefoss (highlights).  Over in Sweden, Andrew Stadler scored his 11th goal of the season in Landskrona’s 1-1 draw to Sirius (highlights).  Down in the fourth tier in Sweden, Eddy Prugh and Andy Lorei both scored in Bodens BK’s 3-2 loss to Anundsjö (highlights).  And we don’t have highlights of these goals, but Matt Eliason, Drew Jeskey, Anthony Avalos and Christian Eissele also scored this weekend and our goal tracker has some more details.  Will Packwood also scored for Birmingham City’s U-21 team.

While we had some goals this weekend, the assists might have been even better this weekend.  Bobby Wood used his head to assist on 1860 Munich’s goal in their 1-1 draw to Darmstadt 98 (highlights).  Here is also a photo of Wood from that game.  And Alfredo Morales assisted on two goals in Ingolstadt’s 3-0 win over Sandhausen (highlights).  That second one was pretty slick.

The USMNT did some training yesterday at the headquarters of the Czech Football Association.   In case you missed the young roster, John D. Halloran broke things down on Friday.  Terrence Boyd is also there in attendance despite his knee injury and Geoff Cameron has been officially ruled out of Wednesday’s game due to his injury.  I forgot to post this last week, but here is Jurgen Klinsmann’s usual post-roster release quote sheet.  Also from last Friday, US Soccer announced an October 14 friendly against Honduras.

The US U-20 team is headed to Argentina this week to play Racing Club Reserves, Defensa y Justicia Reserves and Argentina’s U-20 team.  Here is the updated roster, which features John Requejo Jr., Fernando Arce, Russell Canouse, Junior Flores and Paul Arriola among others.  Another interesting name on the list is Chivas de Guadalajara’s Luis Martir since Chivas normally has a Mexican international only policy.

We had a pretty quiet Deadline Day on the American front (aside from a dildo going into a reporter’s ear, seriously), but we had a couple moves over the last couple of days.

As we posted over the weekend, Julian Green is headed to Hamburg on a season-long loan.  And for all those soccer jersey hipsters out there, Hamburg has a decent home shirt this year and Green looks to be wearing #37.

As for some other moves, Duane Holmes is now with League Two side Bury on a loan until January.  Seb Hines is now with Coventry City until January on a short-term loan.  Gboly Ariyibi signed with English League One side Chesterfield.  And US U-20 midfielder Kris Scott has made the move from Swansea City’s youth teams to Leicester City’s youth teams.

The bigger news on the American front were the moves that did not happen.  Stoke City decided to keep Geoff Cameron despite bids from Sunderland and Southampton.  Zulte-Waregem made a bid for Sacha Kljestan, but Anderlecht decided to hold onto him as well.  And I guess there might have been some rumblings of Southampton sniffing around Brek Shea, but nothing happened (and it was likely silly season nonsense).

And before multiple more people ask me, Juan Agudelo is still without a club and myself (and many others) don’t know anything more on his situation.

Brian Sciaretta, writing for multiple outlets, has you covered with some interviews with Brad Guzan and Greg Garza.  Jonny Rico also got some audio from Garza and Joe Corona about their recent call-ups to the USMNT.

And finally, Freddy Adu is still in Serbia, still hasn’t played for his new team and is suing his former Brazilian team Bahia over alleged unpaid wages.

Tab Ramos names 22-man roster for training camp in Italy
   November 8, 2013 (12:39 PM) by Howie Michaels
 

While more attention will be on the senior squad’s friendlies against Scotland and Austria, the U-20s will take on Iran’s U-20, Hellas Verona’s academy, and a to-be-named opponent (I’m leading towards Escalus FC, although I’d be fine with Mercutio).

In order to play a match, of course, you need players, and Tab Ramos will have 22 to pick from.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Santiago Castano (New York Red Bulls; Union City, N.J.), Ethan Horvath (Molde FK; Highlands Ranch, Colo.)

DEFENDERS (6):Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; Plano, Texas), Conor Donovan (Capital Area RailHawks Academy; Fuquay Varina, N.C.), Matias Fracchia (NJSA 04; Roselle Park, N.J.), Matthew Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Shaquell Moore (IMG Academy; Powder Springs, Ga.), John Requejo Jr. (Real So Cal; Carpinteria, Calif.)

MIDFIELDERS (8):Russell Canouse (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim; Lancaster, Pa.), Marco Delgado (Chivas USA; Glendora, Calif.), Junior Flores (Borussia Dortmund; Manassas Park, Va.), Romain Gall (FC Lorient; Herndon, Va.), Lynden Gooch (Sunderland AFC; Santa Cruz, Calif.), Emerson Hyndman (Fulham FC; Plano, Texas), Kristian Scott (Swansea City AFC; Winterbourne, Bristol), Omar Thompson (Wigan Athletic; Miami, Fla.)

FORWARDS (6):Kainoa Bailey (Bayer 04 Leverkusen; Henderson, Nev.), Benji Lopez (Real Salt Lake; San Diego, Calif.), Amando Moreno (New York Red Bulls; Morganville, N.J.), Zach Pfeffer (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim; Dresher, Pa.), Rubio Rubin (Unattached; Beaverton, Ore.), Ben Spencer (Molde FK; Albuquerque, N.M.)

US Soccer also subtly breaks the news that Molde has been annexed by Sweden. Seems odd to add an exclave like that, but that’s European politics for you.

Eleven players are based with European teams from four different nations: England, France, Germany and Sweden. England and Germany are most prominently represented with four players each; Sweden has two from Molde FK and France one from FC Lorient.

To my knowledge, these matches will not be streamed or broad/narrowcasted in any manner, but if we learn otherwise, we will certainly share that information so that we can all overreact.

Friday morning linkage
   November 8, 2013 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson
 

A few more links before the weekend.

Terrence Boyd scored two goals yesterday.  You can check out the highlights here and here is a photo of Boyd celebrating after one of the goals.  That gives him 10 goals across all competitions this season.  Only Aron Johannsson (12 goals) has scored more among USMNT players in Europe in 2013-14.

Also in Europa League action on Thursday, Brad Friedel got the start for Tottenham at 42-years-old, becoming the oldest player ever to start a Europa League match as the Spurs won 2-1.  Here are some photos from the game.

As Howie posted yesterday, Bahia has decided to not renew Freddy Adu’s contract once it it ends in December.  He has appeared in only seven games across all competitions since joining the club in April.  Bahia is Adu’s seventh team since leaving Real Salt Lake in 2007.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has just been put on Over There’s hit list.  He doesn’t like Sacha Kljestan’s mustache (outrage!) causing our favorite mustached player to tell him to check out his own nose.

We posted earlier this week that Steve Cherundolo was still training on his own since his knee had a little setback, but now it looks like he has returned to full training with the team.

Danny Williams has also returned to full training with Reading this week.  He hasn’t played in a game since September due to a bone bruise on his foot.

I guess there was some British reports claiming Nottingham Forest interest in a loan for Brek Shea, but Greg Seltzer shoots down that report.

There was a story a couple weeks ago about MLS interest for Benji Joya and Daniel Cuevas.  Tom Marshall is reporting that the teams interested seem to be the Chicago Fire, Philadelphia Union, San Jose Earthquakes and Chivas USA, while Mexican side Puebla are also interested in Joya.  And you can add a “team from Denmark” and Mexican second division club Lobos BUAP as other suitors for Cuevas.

And finally, it appears that Swansea City’s U-21 player Kris Scott got invited to the US U-20 camp in Italy next week.

Thursday morning linkage
   September 19, 2013 (12:40 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Some housekeeping from the last couple of days.

Tim Ream continues to play central/defensive midfield for Bolton and has an assist on Tuesday in a 2-2 draw (highlights).  Mark Yesilevskiy talked about his recent good play over at Lion Of Vienna Suite.

Eric Lichaj also had an assist on Tuesday in Nottingham Forest’s 2-2 draw (highlights).

Also in the Championship, Danny Williams assisted on Reading’s injury time game winner on Wednesday.  Seeing how more and more Championship teams are embracing Youtube (like the links above), hopefully there will be highlights of this tomorrow.

Alonso Hernandez help create Monterrey’s game-winning goal in their 1-0 win over Puebla Copa MX action on Tuesday (highlights).

Chukwudi Chijindu scored his eighth goal of the season in Thór’s 2-2 draw to Keflavík in Iceland on Wednesday.  His eight goals are tied for the sixth most in the Icelandic Úrvalsdeild.  As always, our goal tracker is updated with his goal and others from the last week.

Apparently Mexico are going after Luis Gil.  Oh hell no.

If you score a couple of goals in Europe, there is a good chance Brian Sciaretta will talk to you.  This happened to Babajide Ogunbiyi this week.

British-American youth player Kris Scott (not to be confused with his brother Kyle Scott who broke his leg in February) signed a two-year deal with Swansea City after being with Stoke City.

Mr. Sciaretta also spoke to Omar Thompson this week who recently signed a pro deal with Wigan.

Top Draw Soccer tells us about youth goalkeeper’s Al Simpson’s training stints with various teams in England in the last couple months.
