This international break seems really long links
   September 9, 2014 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Only having one game this international break is making this week seem really long and boring (damn you, Colombia).  Here are a few links.

Julian Green is now at Hamburg and training (photo).  Greg Seltzer got a couple quotes from Green about the move before he headed into the USMNT camp last week.  Seltzer also looks at the playing time situation at Hamburg for Green.

Jurgen Klinsmann wants competition between Brad Guzan and Nick Rimando for the #1 goalkeeper spot.  OT resident goalkeeper guru Will has a couple words on Guzan/Rimando (plus a lot other information on everything US goalkeepers).

Aron Johannsson is hoping to return to the field in October.  And he answered some questions and went kayaking recently.

Jonathan Bornstein has a new teammate at Queretaro.  You might have heard about him before.

The 824234 guys at Tijuana have a new manager in Daniel Guzman.

Brian Sciaretta has talked to Jordan Morris and Andrew Jacobson recently.

Eric Lichaj is ready for the Ryder Cup.

Baltimore is in talks with CONCACAF to host some Gold Cup games next summer.  We should know the final stadiums/locations in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The US U-20 team takes on the Argentina U-20 team later today.  They are 2-0-0 on their trip so far with wins over Racing Club Reserves and Defensa y Justicia Reserves.  Bradford Jamieson IV has the best name ever.  I want him to make it to the USMNT so I can get his jersey someday.

While none of the big boys played this weekend, a lot of the smaller leagues still played and we had goals by Jake Keegan, Irvin Raul Parra, Matt Taylor and Royal-Dominique Fennell.  A couple other guys scored this weekend that I haven’t found highlights of yet, but check out our goal tracker for more information.

Tuesday morning linkage
   July 8, 2014 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson
 

I finally sat down this past weekend and wrote a lengthy recap with photos/videos of my trip to Brazil.  You can read it here.

DeAndre Yedlin spoke to The News Tribune’s Don Ruiz about the Roma transfer talk.  He gives some very Crash Davis-coached answers.

Not surprising, but ESPN has been getting some monster ratings for the World Cup.  A mixture of growth of the sport in the US and the US TV-friendly time zones of Brazil.

I re-watched the US’s group stage games this weekend and while Michael Bradley might have been sloppy at times, no one covered the field like he did.  And he did better/just as well against Germany as France’s midfielders.

BBC Sport ran a poll on the best goalkeeper at the World Cup and Tim Howard took home the honors.  Here is also all 16 of Howard’s saves against Belgium in GIF form.

The DTAI Sports Analytics Lab did some analysis on the group stage and put out a PDF on their findings.  CONCACAF performed the best out of any region when compared to “expectations”.

I have posted Mark Yesilevskiy’s prints before but he has done some more of the World Cup, including a USMNT one with the bomb pop jerseys.  I can’t find the article now, but there was a story from one of the UK newspapers recently about the excitement of the World Cup in the US and some Nike spokesperson said that the bomb pop jerseys have been the best selling US jerseys in Nike’s history of making them.

Here is a write up on the various fonts Nike used for their World Cup jerseys.  I love that Dutch font.

Everton’s website did a quick story on the various Americans to play at the club, including Howie’s favorite duo of Cody Arnoux and Anton Peterlin.

Fabian Johnson’s injury that he picked up in the Belgium game doesn’t appear to be serious and he should be returning to full training in two weeks.

Joe Gyau is one of eight players on Borussia Dortmund’s U-23 team who have been invited to the first team’s training camp by Jurgen Klopp.

Sacha Kljestan spoke to Michael Adubato about the start of Anderlecht’s training camp while also being open about a transfer if anything does materialize.

Shawn Parker scored a goal for FC Augsburg in a 3-0 win over Memmingen in a preseason friendly.

NYCFC’s Jeb Brovsky is headed to Norway to go on loan with Strømsgodset.  Strømsgodset currently sit in second place of the Tippeligaen, six points behind Molde FK through 14 games.

It looks like Tijuana won’t be getting a Christmas card from UCLA as they have raided Southern California for yet another player, this time US U-18 defender David Chavez.  The Xolos also had four American-born players in their starting lineup on Saturday against Leones Negros.

Alonso Hernandez started for Monterrey in a friendly against SA Scorpions FC over the weekend.

After playing with Zweibrücken last season, Irvin Raul Parra is now with Kaiserslautern’s U-23 team for 2014-15.

Also making a move this summer, Joey Spivack is now with IBV in Iceland after spending the last two seasons with Kemi Kings in Finland.

Jon-Paul Pittman is on trial with English League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge.  Pittman appeared in 10 league games last season with Wycombe Wanderers while dealing with a knee issue.

Duane Holmes will have a new squad friendly number this season at Huddersfield Town (#19).

And finally, everyone should be a fan of this team in Finland.  Seriously, Sexy Pants.

Zweibrücken vs. FC Homburg Highlights
   April 20, 2014 (8:50 PM) by Matt Benson
 

Mexican-American Irvin Raul Parra scored his fourth goal of the season this weekend in Zweibrücken’s 1-0 win over Homburg in German Regionalliga action.  It wasn’t the prettiest of goals, but it went in the goal.  Here are some highlights from the game with Parra’s goal coming around the 2:40 mark.
