Haven’t done one of these in a while.

Aron Johannsson will be out for a while after having hip surgeryAccording to ArJo, the surgery was a success.

Bob Bradley has led Stabæk to a place in next year’s Europa League.  He spoke to Greg Seltzer about the season.  He is one of two American coaches to lead a team to next year’s Europa League.  One Norwegian publication also named him Tippeligaen Manager of the Year.

Sticking with American managers in Europe, it looks like David Wagner is going to be Huddersfield Town’s next manager.

Cameron Carter-Vickers has signed a new deal with Tottenham through 2018.

The American contingent at Tijuana will now have Miguel Herrera as their manager come 2016.

Paul Arriola and Alejandro Guido both scored with Tijuana’s U20 team this past weekend.

Quick link action for Thursday
   September 17, 2015 (12:15 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Life is busy so I will keep this short and to the point.

Here is the USMNT 35-man provisional roster for the CONCACAF Cup.

It is looking more and more like Copa America won’t be taking place in the US next summer.

Fabian Johnson has returned to light training with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Tim Howard was named Everton’s Player of the Month for August.

Lynden Gooch was named U-21 Premier League Player of the Month for August.

Josh Gatt needs to repair his knee a third time now.  Ugh.

DeAndre Yedlin will wear #24 at Sunderland.  Here is a video interview with Yedlin on Sunderland’s website.  Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat says he doesn’t know much about Yedlin yet.

Andrija Novakovich had an assist with Reading’s U-21 team earlier this week.

Mukwelle Akale scored a bitchin’ goal for Villarreal’s U-19 team recently.

Jordan Morris is scoring goals with Stanford.

Someone made an every touch video of Gedion Zelalem’s latest game with Rangers.

A bunch of youthful links for Thursday
   August 27, 2015 (12:03 AM) by Matt Benson
 

It has been a good week for US youth players.

Lynden Gooch scored in his third straight U21 game over the weekend (highlights), which led to him making his Sunderland senior team debut in their Capital One Cup win over Exeter City (photo).  And he spoke to Sunderland’s website following his debut.

Gedion Zelalem officially went on loan to Rangers this week.  Rangers’ website has a photo gallery of his first training session and an interview with him.  Then he went out to make his debut in yesterday’s Scottish Cup match against Airdrieonians and end up with two assists (and a hockey assist on a third goal) in the 5-0 win (highlights).

Andrija Novakovich scored a goal over the weekend in Reading U21s’ 2-1 win over Liverpool (highlights).

Andrija Novakovich’s former teammate at Reading, Aleks Gogic, spoke to Will about his time at Reading and his current stint with the Nike Academy.

Julian Green scored a goal in Bayern Munich II’s 2-1 win against Bayreuth on Tuesday.  Still no highlights available just yet, but here is a photo of Green in action.

Amando Moreno scored another goal with Tijuana’s U20 team over the weekend.  That gives him three goals on the season at the U20 level.

Cody Cropper got the start and made a couple saves in MK Dons’ 2-1 win over Cardiff City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday (highlights).

A slight break from the youth train.  Geoff Cameron scored the clinching penalty kick (and it was nicely taken) in Stoke City’s 1-1 (8-7 on PKs) victory over Luton Town in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday (highlights).  And Matt Taylor has been on fire for Saarbrücken, scoring over the weekend against Pirmasens (highlights) and this week against Spielberg (highlights).

But you don’t care about these vets, you want more information on youth players.

The last time we heard about the US U-17 team, they lost their first game of the Vaclav Jezek Tournament.  They followed that up with draws against Slovenia and Slovakia.  Then finished the tournament with a win over Ukraine.

While he plays with Fulham’s U21 team, Emerson Hyndman has been called in to the US U-23s’ September camp.

US U-17 forward (and dual national) Kai Koreniuk has accepted a call-up with Netherlands’ U-18 team.

Josh Deaver has three different tweets about Ben Lederman’s current situation with Barcelona.

O When The Yanks gives us an update on Djair Parfitt-Williams’ citizenship.  He has become a regular with West Ham United’s U21 team.

Bayern Munich just spent €500,000 on 16-year-old midfielder Timothy Tillman.  He is a dual national of Germany and the United States.  He has featured for Germany’s U15 team, but he has told O When The Yanks that he would be interested in the US.

French-American forward Dylan Alexis Romney is now on loan with Savona from Inter Milan.

Former US international and youth coach Hugo Perez is now going to be an assistant coach for El Salvador.

Robbie Kristo spurned MLS for Italian Serie B side Spezia back in February and now he is headed out on loan to Fidelis Andria in Lega Pro (third tier).

Devann Yao finished last season with Neustrelitz and now he is still in Germany but with Kickers Offenbach.

Probably won’t know the USMNT roster for September’s friendlies until after this weekend, but here is Peru’s roster.

Copa America Centenario is taking place next summer.  We just don’t know whether CONCACAF will be involved or not.

DeAndre Yedlin is getting some loan interest from teams in England and Spain.

Tijuana’s website has a little story up on Paul Arriola.

San Diego State product Ata Ozbay has signed with Finn Harps in Ireland.

And finally, Kenya Brown caught up with Alex DeJohn about his season in Norway.

Friday morning linkpalooza
   August 21, 2015 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Links and whatnot for your reading pleasure.  A few USMNT nuggets to start off with.

Roughly 23,000 tickets have been sold so far for the friendly against Peru.

While we won’t know the full US roster for the September friendlies until the end of the month, Tim Howard and DaMarcus Beasley will be on the roster according to a release from US Soccer.  Howard will be making his first return since taking a year sabbatical, while Fabian Johnson’s injury (and Beasley’s veteran presence) probably opened things up for Beasley.  Klinsmann also says Brad Guzan will remain the US’s starting goalkeeper.

Toronto FC manager Greg Vanney has begun talking to US Soccer about not calling in Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley for the Peru friendly (Toronto faces Seattle on September 5) then releasing them back to the USMNT for the game against Brazil.

Mexico has an interim manager for their next four games, including the Confederations Cup playoff, and it is Tigres’ Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti.  Ferretti has managed El Tri once before in a friendly against Costa Rica in 1993.

Jurgen Klinsmann talked to US Soccer’s website about various players making moves this transfer window like Aron Johannsson, Bobby Wood and Tim Ream.

Speaking of Ream, he has officially signed with Fulham after a couple days delay.  He will become the ninth American to play for Fulham’s senior team once he makes his Cottagers debut.  Ream also told NBC’s Joe Prince-Wright that Fulham’s history with Americans was a factor in his decision to select Fulham.

Also at Fulham, Will Parchman wrote some words on Emerson Hyndman and his situation with the Cottagers.

According to this report out of Germany, Julian Green has been sent down to Bayern Munich II in the German Regionalliga.

We found out that Genk was interested in Gyasi Zardes earlier this week and it looks like you can add Reading and Brigthon to the picture.

There were some goals this week from Danny Williams, Miguel Ibarra and Lynden Gooch.  Gooch also spoke to Sunderland’s website about the goal.

Cody Cropper made his senior team debut earlier this month in MK Dons’ 2-1 win over Leyton Orient in the Capital One Cup.  As for the goal he allowed, it was awkward.  He looks like a baby deer trying to walk on ice.

Greg Seltzer did another numbers thing and this one is on Ethan Horvath and rookie American goalkeepers in Europe.  Horvath and Molde FK also defeated Standard Liège yesterday, 2-0, in the first leg of their Europa League matchup.

Eight by Eight magazine has an interview up with Bob Bradley.

The US U-17 team lost their opening game of the Vaclav Jezek Tournament, 4-2, to Russia.  The US goals were scored by Joshua Perez and Hugo Arellano.

Chelsea youth player Kyle Scott appears to be headed to a US U-20 camp in the near future.

And finally, Jay Denny’s career will continue in the lower leagues of England with AFC Telford being his latest stop.

A few links for Tuesday
   August 18, 2015 (12:03 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Rapid fire links!

Our goal tracker has been updated with all the goals from this weekend.

Jake Keegan also scored a goal on Monday.

Gedion Zelalem scored a nice little goal for Arsenal’s U21 team last Friday.  Zelalem also talked to Arsenal’s website about the game.

Howie posted some German news yesterday.  Fabian Johnson is going to be out for a while with an injury, Andrew Wooten could be called in for the USMNT’s September friendlies and Joe Gyau gives us an injury update.

Genk are interested in acquiring LA Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes.

Tim Howard recorded his 127th career Premier League shutout this past weekend, third most among current Premier League goalkeepers.

It looks like William Yarbrough has lost the starting goalkeeper job at Leon.

Brandon Vazquez scored two goals with Tijuana’s U17 team last week.  He also spoke to Tijuana’s website/social media team about the goals.

Vazquez is part of the US U-17 team currently in Pardubice, Czech Republic for a tournament.  They begin play later today.

Lynden Gooch scored a goal yesterday with Sunderland’s U21 team.

Goal.com’s Thomas Floyd also belongs to the #FreeBenny cause.

And what seems like the longest “wrapping up” of a transfer ever, all signs point to Tim Ream finally joining up with Fulham.  Hopefully I can post something official later today.

A bunch of links for Tuesday morning

A bunch of random stuff for Tuesday.

The US U-23ers held their College ID camp (the college version of Camp Cupcake?) this past week and ended it with a 3-1 win over Tijuana’s Segunda Premier team.  The US goals came from Paul Salcedo (California) Mac Steeves (Providence) and Brandon Vincent (Stanford).  US Soccer has some highlights of the match, while here is a write-up from Tijuana’s website.

A couple people have recently asked me to do a “23 Names” type article on the U-23 team, but ASN’s Josh Deaver just did something similar so go read that.

One U-20 player who could be part of the U-23 team, Lynden Gooch, scored a goal and notched an assist in Sunderland U21s’ 3-1 win over Norwich City over the weekend.  You can check out both right here.

Another youth player, US U-17 midfielder Luca de la Torre, recorded an assist with Fulham’s U21 team over the weekend as well.

The German Cup had some interesting things happen this weekend to teams featuring Americans.  First we had someone shoot a gun at Hertha Berlin’s bus.  Luckily for John Brooks and his teammates, no one was on board when the shooting took place.  And while he is still out, Terrence Boyd’s RB Leipzig match against Osnabruck was abandoned in the 72nd minute after someone injured the ref by throwing a lighter at him.  Come on, Germany, you are better than that.

Geoff Cameron started at center back this past weekend in Stoke City’s loss to Liverpool.  Here is a photo of him in action.  He also spoke to Goal.com about why he missed the Gold Cup.

While his manager might not like it, Timothy Chandler told the press that he plans on accepting future USMNT call-ups.

Jann George scored a goal for Jahn Regensburg this past weekend.  I can’t find highlights of it yet, but here is a photo of him celebrating the goal.

Zarek Valentin had a nice assist this weekend (as well as a nice fist pump).  Greg Seltzer also spoke to him about playing in Norway.

We had a bunch of other goals this past weekend and you can check out all the highlights by looking at our updated goal tracker.

As for some goals we don’t have highlights for just yet, Danish-American defender Jamil Fearrington is now at Brønshøj BK and he scored over the weekend.

Will Daniels scored another two goals this weekend for Ægir in their 4-3 win over Sindri.  His eight league goals are the third most in the Icelandic 2. Deild (third tier).

Kai Koreniuk is a 17-year-old forward who signed with Dutch side Vitesse last August.  He scored a goal this weekend with one of their youth teams (3:55 mark).

Ethan Horvath, Josh Gatt and Molde FK will next face Standard Liège in the playoff round of Europa League.

SC Freiburg midfielder Ethan Sonis is headed out on loan to NASL’s Jacksonville Armada FC.

Defender Shane O’Neill is leaving the Colorado Rapids for Apollon Limassol of Cyprus.  Maybe Juan Agudelo can give him some real estate tips.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have sent Erik Hurtado on loan to Norwegian side Mjøndalen IF.  He will join fellow American Rhett Bernstein at the club.

After scoring 19 league goals for Landskrona over the last two years, Andrew Stadler has moved on to Östersunds FK.

After being cut by Galway United last week, Kevin Garcia has signed with Vasteras SK in Sweden.

Tristan Bowen is back in Europe and is now with Freddy Adu’s former Finnish team KuPS.  Bowen first experienced Europe in 2011-12 while on loan with Belgium side K.S.V. Roeselare.

Tijuana’s website has another story up on their Americans at the club.

Staying with the Mexican-American theme, the Total Soccer Show had Tom Marshall on this week to talk about El Tri, Liga MX and Mexican-American dual nationals.  No one covering Liga MX has a better British accent than Tom.

And finally, Will likes to rank goalies and has his updated Top 100 list for you as well as some bonus lists.
