This video pretty much sums up US Soccer right now (minus the cheap shot portion).

I posted a bunch of injury news on Saturday.  As for some more updates, DaMarcus Beasley had to be subbed off the field on Sunday due to a foot injury.  Alejandro Bedoya sat out this weekend’s game with FC Nantes due to a hamstring injury, but he is hopeful he can play next weekend.  Jermaine Jones’ Besiktas debut has been delayed due to a groin injury.

We know Eric Lichaj is going to be out a while, but his groin injury could possibly be a hernia.  And Aron Johannsson missed this weekend’s game with AZ Alkmaar, but he should be returning to training this week.

Sebastian Lletget scored a goal for West Ham United’s U-21 team in a 2-1 loss to Manchester United on Monday.  The goal is Lletget’s fourth of the year with West Ham’s U-21 team.

Stuart Holden is starting to train again with Bolton Wanderers and he received some good news from manager Dougie Freedman last week.  It looks like Freedman and Bolton are going to give him a new contract this summer once his current contract expires.

Kicker is reporting that Fabian Johnson will sign with Borussia Moenchengladbach this summer once his current contract with Hoffenheim expires.

With a bunch of Huddersfield Town’s players returning from injury, manager Mark Robins told the UK press that they might send Duane Holmes out on loan so he can get some playing time.

Another “Jozy Altidore does more than score goals” type story out of Sunderland.  Teammate Adam Johnson had some nice things to say about Altidore’s performance against Newcastle from two weeks ago.

“There is a lot more to him than goals. Against Newcastle he must have been a nightmare to play against. Genuinely, I thought he was awesome.

Even though he scored two goals in a friendly for Bob Bradley’s Stabæk last week, Michael Stephens, as well as fellow American Christian Eissele, are trialing with Swedish side GAIS.

Goalkeeper Alex Horwath has been trialing with Ljungskile SK in Sweden over the last two weeks and he was rewarded with a contract with the club.

Here is a new interview with Fabian Hurzeler where we learn that he also holds a passport with Switzerland to go along with the US and Germany.

And finally, some new jerseys got released this week.  Josh Gatt, Ben Spencer, Ethan Horvath and Molde FK have some new home and away kits for the 2014 season.  While Eric Lichaj and Nottingham Forest have a new third jersey for this year.

A bit of this and that for Tuesday
   January 14, 2014 (12:05 AM) by Matt
 

Some link goodies for your little noggins.

Michael Bradley was officially introduced by Toronto FC on Monday.  Bradley and new teammate Jermain Defoe even took in a Raptors-Bucks game last night (Mikey with the rare smile!).  Bradley also did the interview rounds with Grant Wahl and Roger Bennett.  Sounds like he could join up with the USMNT once they return to LA after their 12 days in Brazil.

After some delays and what not, the USMNT finally made it down to Brazil.  Apparently Brad Evans has “taken over” US Soccer’s Instagram account for a while.

The always good Steven Goff dropped a bunch of nuggets for us.  The US is likely to play three friendlies on US soil between May 26 and June 7.  The venue and opponents are to be determined.  There was a rumor once upon a time about a US-England friendly down in England, but that looks like a no go now.  After about 10 different people told me that (I apparently missed that story last week), some told me (including Jon Arnold and Josh Deaver and they are good peeps) that the latest rumor is a friendly against Serbia.  We shall see.

Goff was also your source for all things Sebastian-related on Monday.  Sebastian Lletget might go on loan this spring.  He hasn’t been getting any playing time at West Ham this season.  And Duke defender Sebastien Ibeagha is expected to go on trial in Denmark.  Ives also mentioned that Ibeagha turned down a homegrown with the Houston Dynamo to head to Europe over the weekend.

Like the rumor from Sunday night, Michael Parkhurst is returning to MLS and his rights were traded to the Columbus Crew.

Since all the cool kids are returning to MLS (and there will soon be no one left for us to cover on this site), Maurice Edu is apparently in negotiations with MLS for his return to the league.  Also, Taylor Twellman is becoming the man when it comes to breaking these USMNT-related transfer rumors/stories.

Nothing really new to report on Juan Agudelo.  There is speculation that Stoke City might sign him, but send him out on loan until the work permit thing gets figured out.  I guess one of the rumored teams, Anderlecht, shot down that rumor over the weekend.  Yay silly season!

Julian Green continues to score goals for Bayern Munich’s first team during their winter friendlies.  He bagged another in a a 8-0 victory over Kuwait SC (highlights).

DC United’s Michael Seaton is headed to Italy to train with Inter Milan.  Another one of these MLS-to-Europe offseason training stints.

According to this Swedish report, Seattle Sounders’ Corey Hertzog is on trial with Falkenbergs FF.

Christopher McCollum tells us the story of Sean Reynolds.  Reynolds went from working at Home Depot this past year to now playing with Icelandic Premier League team FH, who will be playing in Europa League in 2014-15.

And finally, be on the lookout for a small Inside the Numbers thing on Matt Besler later today.

A whole bunch of links for Monday
   January 6, 2014 (12:02 AM) by Matt
 

Lets start this off with some in-house stuff.  Will did another goalkeeper interview for the site.  This time with Notre Dame goalkeeper Pat Wall.  So go read it.

I also posted most of the highlights from this weekend’s FA Cup.  Finally was able to find Jozy Altidore’s assist, but in GIF form.

A couple photos from those FA Cup matches.  Clint Dempsey is back in a Fulham shirt and this just looks right to me.  Tim Ream is sporting a “milk was a bad choice” beard these days.  And Sebastian Lletget made his first team debut for West Ham in a loss to Nottingham Forest.

In the rare case you missed it, Jurgen Klinsmann selected his roster for January’s camp on Friday.  He also did his usual post-roster release Q&A on US Soccer’s website.  And he also did a video where he talks about the camp.

The US U-20 and U-18 teams are also holding January camps and their rosters were released this weekend.

One of those players on the U-20 team, Freiburg’s Eric Lickert, talked to Brian Sciaretta about his selection to the squad.

Time to strike up the rumor mill.  Juan Agudelo was spotted at Stoke City’s Britannia Stadium this weekend.  Maybe attempting another shot at a work permit?  While last week’s lazy rumor was Michael Bradley-to-Fulham, this week’s looks like it could be Aron Johannsson-to-Stoke City.  “What’s a team with a bunch of Americans…….yeah, put Stoke City down”.

Liga MX kicked off this past weekend with some Americans sporting some new shirts for the season.  DaMarcus Beasley played a little wing back and left back for Puebla in these new blew Kappa kits.  And four Americans (Greg Garza, Joe Corona, Edgar Castillo and Herculez Gomez) saw the field for Tijuana in these new white Nike kits.  I like the Tijuana shirts with the black/grey on the sleeves.  Speaking of Liga MX, we might have some new content on that in the near future.

Now that Bob Bradley is the manager of Stabæk, he is doing the US press tour with Brian Sciaretta and Greg Seltzer.  And here is an extended video interview with Bob.

Kicker is already rolling out its World Cup preview stuff.  Here is a Google-translated breakdown of the USMNT.  They also have a video on Jozy Altidore, which also includes some quotes from former USMNT player Thomas Dooley (the video is all in German).  And Kicker must be a huge Jozy fan as they have a photo slideshow of his career.  Won’t they be surprised when Aron Johannsson is starting against Germany instead of Jozy come World Cup time (I am joking……sort of).  And if you know German, feel free to let us know what is being said in the comments.

Brooks Lennon, a 16-year-old from Arizona playing with Liverpool’s U-17 team, was in the build-up of Liverpool’s goal in this video (I believe he is #7).

This video was done last September by MLS, but I am always a fan of American soccer history (and it is new to me), so here is a short video on the Bethlehem Steel.

The guys over at A Football Report put together their annual “The Best of Football Writing” list for 2013.  Some really good stuff in there.  Bookmark it and read many of those over the next couple weeks.

And finally, I haven’t done a shameless plug thing in a while.  We are on Facebook, so go “like” us if you want.  Not a Facebook fan?  We are also on Twitter.  The main account (also basically my account) is @socceroverthere, while Howie can be followed at @Howie_OT.  Why not also follow other guys who help out with the site from time to time:  Will (@letskillrobots) and Jon (@ArnoldcommaJon).

Various FA Cup highlights
   January 5, 2014 (4:05 PM) by Matt
 

Nothing overly exciting happened in any of the games which featured Americans this weekend (Sebastian Lletget, pictured above, did make his first team debut for West Ham) and FA Cup highlights are a tad bit tougher to find, but check out after the jump for some of the highlights from this weekend.

Some links for Tuesday.

Grant Wahl gives us some USMNT goodies.  It has been rumored, but it is looking like the US will face Austria in its second friendly in November to go along with the friendly against Scotland.  Austria is ranked #47 by FIFA and #51 by Elo.  And during January’s camp, the US will split time between Los Angeles and Brazil.  They won’t have any games in Brazil, but they want to check out infrastructure before the World Cup.

The injuries are starting to pile up for the USMNT even if they aren’t serious.  Clint Dempsey missed another game for Seattle with a hamstring strain.  Fabian Johnson was subbed out of Hoffenheim’s weekend game with an ankle injuryA report out of Germany claimed that Jermaine Jones needed a surgery on his knee, but Jones/US Soccer went all Lee Corso on that report, claiming that he is fit for selection.  And Clarence Goodson missed San Jose’s game on Sunday with a knee injury.

That all said, Michael Bradley is slowly getting back at it, training on a side field during a recent Roma practice.

ESPN’s Doug McIntyre spoke to Geoff Cameron about his struggles to see the field with the USMNT.  Some good quotes in that story.  Doug also informs us that some USMNT coaches were at Nottingham Forest’s weekend game against Derby County checking out Eric Lichaj.

Steve Goff gives us his American abroad roundup for the weekend.  As for Monday, Tim Howard picked up an assist in Everton’s 3-2 win over Newcastle United.  So there have been a total of two assists by goalkeepers in the Premier League this season and they were both by Americans (Howard and Brad Guzan) and both took place this weekend.

Also on Monday, Zarek Valentin and Bodø / Glimt earned promotion to Norway’s top-flight league with a win over Vard.

Zak Whitbread is headed to Derby County on an emergency loan.  Whitbread had played in only four games for Leicester City across all competitions so far in 2013-14, so there will be a chance for more playing time.

Aron Johannsson will have a new manager at AZ Alkmaar as the club has fired Gertjan Verbeek.

MLS Insider has the story of how Bob Bradley became coach of the Egyptian men’s national team.

Brek Shea and Maurice Edu both played with Stoke City’s U-21 team in a recent game against Sebastian Lletget and West Ham United’s U-21 team.

According to this report out of Denmark, Mike Grella is trialing with Superliga side Viborg FF.

Kris Lindsey tells us more about the somewhat-forgotten Mexican-American at Tijuana:  Bruno Piceno.

Julian Green has been invited to play with Germany’s U-19 team for their upcoming first round of the U-19 Euro qualification.  These would be official games, which means he would be provisionally cap tied to Germany.

And we told you last week about Will Packwood scoring a goal for Birmingham City’s U-21 team and here is some video of the goal:

A couple things for Tuesday morning.

Greg Seltzer is reporting that Sunderland made an offer around seven million euros (around 9.5 million in US dollars) to Roma for Michael Bradley and that Roma laughed it off.

I was playing around with Whoscored.com last night and was able to figure out that Alejandro Bedoya’s 91.2% passing percentage is the 12th best in Ligue 1 so far among players with at least 40 attempted passes and the fifth best among midfielders.  Not a bad start to season.  Here is also a photo from Nantes’ website of Bedoya showing off his vertical abilities.  And another of him looking like he is dancing over the ball.  Ole.

Brek Shea is getting closer to returning to Stoke City’s first team.  He played the first half with the U-21 team in a loss to Wolverhampton on Monday.

Tim Ream played defensive midfielder for Bolton over the weekend and apparently did a good job.

Sebastian Lletget scored in his third consecutive U-21 match for West Ham on Friday.  He has to be close to seeing at least the bench for the first team in a cup match or even a Premier League game.

ESPN’s Doug McIntyre breaks down who is hot and who is not among USMNT pool players.

Tyler Ruthven can now be found in Finland with KuPS.  The defender played with Swedish side IK Brage earlier this season, appearing in 12 league games, but parted ways with the club during their little summer break.  Ruthven will join Cameroonian-born American Etchu Tabe at KuPS.

Friend of OT, Futbol Intellect’s Maxi Rodriguez, dives into Clint Dempsey and the changing place of Europe in the minds of US fans.

And finally, Bundesliga Fanatic’s Gerry Wittmann takes a look at Julian Green.

If you missed it yesterday, both Terrence Boyd (three weeks) and Steve Cherundolo (indefinitely) both have injuries that will keep them out for varying lengths.

I was also able to find Julian Green’s goal from the weekend.  Green now has five goals in seven games with Bayern Munich’s U-23 team this season.

Chukwudi Chijindu scored his seventh goal of the season yesterday in Thór’s 2-2 draw to Fylkir in Iceland.  Josh Wicks also started for Thór at goalkeeper.  Chijindu’s seven goals are the fourth most in the Icelandic Úrvalsdeild in 2013.

Sebastian Lletget scored a late game-winning goal for West Ham’s U-21 team in a 2-1 win over Everton on Monday.  Here is a photo of him celebrating with his teammates and another random photo of him from the game.

From this weekend, DaMarcus Beasley “assisted” on an own goal in Puebla’s 4-2 win over Chivas.  His pass was knocked into the goal by a Chivas defender.  You can check it out here at the 1:13 mark.

Here are some field-level highlights from the US-Bosnia game.

Tony Taylor talked to the fine folks over at Yanks Abroad about starting the season at Cypriot side AC Omonia.  They begin their season August 30 at Anorthosis, who finished second last year, one spot above Omonia.

And finally, Landon Donovan did an interview with Julie Stewart-Binks that aired on today’s first episode of Fox Sport 1′s Fox Soccer Daily.  The biggest news to come out of is that Donovan has received multiple offers from teams outside the US for when his contracts ends after this MLS season and that he would be interested if the Galaxy don’t make a competitive offer.

But over a 24-hour period between Sunday and Monday, I was able to watch NBC’s Match of the Day, ESPN FC and Fox Soccer Daily.  It really is a good time to be a soccer fan in the US.

The big news of yesterday was the release of the USMNT roster for Wednesday’s friendly.  It was also announced later that afternoon that Michael Orozco Fiscal had to withdraw due to a hamstring injury.  Here is also the usual quote sheet from Jurgen Klinsmann talking about the roster.  And Klinsi talked to the Studio 90 people about Aron Johannsson and Anthony Brooks.

Random side tangent, you might notice that I always call him Anthony Brooks rather than John Anthony Brooks.  I have always done that since that is how he was listed on US Soccer’s website and referred by the US U-20 coaches two years ago (sort of like how everyone called Danny Williams by Daniel Williams until he finally came into camp and then everyone started calling him Danny).  But Klinsi calls him John in the video linked above, so I might be changing that in the near future.  Like I said, random.  Good talk.

Speaking of Aron Johannsson, here is a photo of him at camp all decked out in his US gear.  And Greg Seltzer got some quotes from Johannsson.

We are doing a guess the score contest for Wednesday’s game.  Anyone who guesses the correct score will have a chance to win one of our Sacha Kljestan mustache shirtsSo go enter.

The team trained in front of some retired train engine.

With Clint Dempsey absent this trip, Klinsi picked Tim Howard to be the captain.

Another name absent is Timothy Chandler and ESPN’s Doug McIntyre tackles that story.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Cody Cropper to talk about being called into his first senior team camp.

Graham Ruthven is in Sarajevo and talked to some foreign press to get the Bosnian perspective.

Here are some post-training interviews with Tim Howard and Michael Bradley.

Another player not making this trip is Herculez Gomez.  His knee is still bothering him, causing him to get it cleaned out, which means he will be out the next 4-6 weeks and will likely miss September’s qualifiers.

Now onto some club news.

Anthony Brooks played so well for Hertha Berlin over the weekend that he made Whoscored.com’s statistical European Team of the Weekend.  Not bad.

Sporting CP are trying to cancel their contract with Oguchi Onyewu, claiming he got his knee scoped in the US without telling them.

FC Dallas is sending Bobby Warshaw on loan to Swedish side Ängelholms FF for the rest of the season.  Ängelholms FF already has one American on the roster in goalkeeper Matt Pyzdrowski.

A couple more goals to add to the weekend tally.  I posted a photo of Julian Green from his game this weekend where he scored for Bayern Munich II in the German Regionalliga, but some highlights have popped up of his goal.  And here are some highlights of Tony Taylor’s goal in Omonia’s preseason friendly win over Aris.

Sebastian Lletget also found the back of the net on Monday, scoring in West Ham U-21′s 3-0 win over Aston Villa.  Here is a photo of Lletget celebrating one of the goals from the game with his teammates.

We had some more goals on Monday.  Lester Dewee scored a goal in Bodens BK’s 4-2 win over Assi in Swedish Division 2 (fourth tier) action.  Bodens BK also have a new American on the team, Matt Sanner, who also scored in the game.  Here is an interview with Sanner shortly after joining the team.  And Sanner scored another goal while Dewee scored two goals in a 4-1 win last week.

A couple more post-game interviews from the weekend.  Here is one with Euan Holden after Bury lost, 2-1, to Oxford United.  And one with Conor O’Brien after FC Nordsjælland’s 2-2 draw to Copenhagen.  Also of note, O’Brien’s teammate, Morten Nordstrand, had one of the better goals you will ever see in the draw.

And finally, here is a story on James Pallotta, an American who is AS Roma’s majority owner and president.

But don’t forget to enter our contest.

Jurgen Klinsmann decided to use all four of his post-group stage roster swaps for the Gold Cup.  Looks like he wants to solidify that back with Matt Besler and Omar Gonzalez.  Ticket sales have increased to 43,000 for Sunday’s doubleheader according to Steven Goff.

Jon Arnold wrote another good interview for the site.  It was with Tony Taylor and talks about his move to Cyprus and playing in Europa League.  You should go read it so Jon will do more of these for the site.  Everyone wins!

The German Regionalliga has already started up and Julian Green scored two goals in a 4-2 win on Wednesday.  And someone decided to create a video of his preseason goals with Bayern Munich’s first team.

Diego Chavarri scored in his Iranian debut with Gostaresh Foolad on Wednesday.  And here is an interview that he did with Marca about being an American playing in Iran.

As I posted yesterday, Sebastian Lletget played well in West Ham’s friendly this week.  And here are some video highlights from the game.  He has one shot at the 4:40 mark and shows off some fancy footwork around the 5:50 mark.

I don’t think I posted this last week, but Danny Williams scored a goal in Reading’s friendly against Jon-Paul Pittman and Wycombe Wanderers.  Here is a photo of Williams from the game.

Tim Ream started at left back for Bolton in a preseason friendly against Rotherham United on Tuesday.

Who needs Jozy Altidore when you have Aron Johannsson?  Johannsson scored two goals and recorded an assist in AZ Alkmaar’s 3-0 win in a friendly against MVV.

Timothy Chandler is back from his knee injury and went 90 minutes in Nurnberg’s 3-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach in a friendly.

Here is a photo of Brad Friedel sporting Tottenham’s new goalkeeper kit from a recent friendly.

Geoff Cameron wants to impress new manager Mark Hughes.

Tyler Ruthven left the club recently and now goalkeeper Bryan Meredith has left Brage and is currently training with the Seattle Sounders.

Cody Cropper is starting the season with Southampton’s U-21 team.

The Charles Renken and Aubrey Perry traveling summer trial/training party is back at Nyköping.

Former US U-20er Victor Garza is on trial with Turkish club Samsunspor.

And Conor Doyle and Derby County have new away kits for this upcoming season.

Sebastian Lletget plays well in preseason friendly
   July 17, 2013 (9:15 AM) by Matt
 

Sebastian Lletget came off the bench and played 45 minutes in West Ham United’s 2-1 victory over Colchester in a preseason friendly on Tuesday.  And from reading the in-game commentary on West Ham’s official site, the 20-year-old midfielder played pretty well in the second half.  The photo above came courtesy of @NickyHayesPhoto.

46 mins – Colchester get the second half underway, but not before we enjoy some Bon Jovi over the PA system. Lletget is immediately into the action, winning the ball back from Bean in midfield.

47 mins – Lletget again, intercepting a pass from Sears and running at the Colchester back four. He tries to pick out Maiga’s run to his left, but the No11 is offside. Lletget clasps his hands together in frustration. Cole was galloping up unmarked to his right, too.

53 mins – Lletget wins another corner. Cole takes again right-footed and Cousins flaps and can only help the ball out for a throw on the far side. West Ham attack again and Taylor’s cross to the far post is helped wide by Maiga. To be fair to the striker, he was under severe pressure and stretching for the ball.

57 mins – Lletget collects on the edge of the D and cuts onto his right foot before shooting a couple of yards over the crossbar. Good stuff from the American.

69 mins – Lletget’s neat turn and pass inside the full-back is good and Jarvis wins a corner. It’s taken short and Colchester clear when Cole’s cross comes in.

75 mins – Outstanding from Lletget. He gets ‘Ooohs’ and cheers from the crowd as he turns on a sixpence (a 5p coin for the younger ones) on the edge of the D and leaves two defenders grasping at air. Vaz Te almost benefits as Cousins just about diverts his shot into the side netting. The corner is cleared.

79 mins - I have been watching Seb Lletget play since he joined the Club and I can honestly say this is the sharpest I’ve ever seen him look. He is quick and elusive on the ball and snapping away at his opponents when not in possession. Very good.

85 mins – Lletget creates again, clipping a ball over for Collison. Unfortunately, it’s a yard too strong and Cousins flies out to collect on the slide.

89 mins – Lletget and Collison combine on the edge of the box before Maiga heads wide.

And West Ham’s website did a story on his performance as well.

Lletget, who turns 21 in September, has been at West Ham since 2009 and scored two goals in 23 games with West Ham’s U-21 team last season.  He did dress in five games with the first team last season (four league and one FA Cup), but has yet to make a first team appearance.  If he continues to play like he did on Tuesday, there is a good chance he could make his Premier League debut in 2013-14.
