Links and whatnot for Tuesday
   October 27, 2015 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson
 

In case you have been out of the loop the last couple of days, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL and US Soccer all officially announced that the United States will be the host of next summer’s Copa America Centenario.

The US U-17 team was knocked out of the U-17 World Cup.

Julian Green had a hat trick over the weekend.  Ryan Malone scored his first goal in his first start since heading to Germany.  And Kenny Saief had an assist over the weekend.

US Soccer has parted ways with head trainer Sue Falsone.

We might not see another American at AZ Alkmaar as Director of Football Earnie Stewart has left the club to join the Philadelphia Union as their sporting director.

I think Bob Bradley has been “linked” to Aston Villa couple different times but he denied the latest rumors with them firing manager Tim Sherwood recently.

Dom Dwyer will get his US passport in 2017 and he might be interested in playing for the US.

ESPN’s Doug McIntyre has his latest USMNT hot list.

#FreeBenny.

Gedion Zelalem’s loan with Rangers ends in January but the club wants to extend it until the end of the season.

Tim Howard is getting some crap in England about the goals he gave up to Arsenal this past weekend.

Geoff Cameron picked up a thigh injury over the weekend and looks to be out for a week.

Andrija Novakovich scored a goal with Reading’s U-21 team yesterday.

Jordan Morris continues to do Jordan Morris things at Stanford (goal and assist).

And finally, Zarek Valentin wrote some words on five things he has learned as a professional.

A whole bunch of links for Tuesday

Let’s get to it and start with the USMNT.

As expected, CONCACAF announced that the Confederations Cup playoff will be held on October 9 at the Rose Bowl.  The US will also play a second game, this one being a friendly, during that same international week and it could be against Costa Rica.

One player who could be eligible to play for the US in that playoff is Darlington Nagbe as he is on course to become a US citizen this fall.

FIFA also held the preliminary draw for 2018 World Cup qualification over the weekend.  And US Soccer confirmed that the first home qualifier will be November 13 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis against the winner of St. Vincent & the Grenadines/Aruba from the third round.  Also in that link from US Soccer is the full fourth round qualification schedule although the rest of the game sites haven’t been determined yet.

I know I said we should never talk about the 2015 Gold Cup ever again, but Clint Dempsey won the Golden Boot while Brad Guzan won the Golden Glove.  And Michael Bradley led all players in assists for the tournament.

Chris Wondolowski is a freak.  He started and went 70 minutes for San Jose a day after starting for the US in a city nearly 3000 miles away.

Tim Howard is ready to return to the USMNT.

According to Mr. Chip, the US is projected to be No. 29 in August’s FIFA rankings, while Mexico will be No. 26.

Bobby Warshaw wrote some words on whether the US might have some players who are better suited to play CONCACAF opponents while others might be better against European teams.

In the “if it is on the internet then it MUST be true” department, some website claims Landon Donovan is going to sign with Atletico de Kolkata in India.  Sure. . .

I forgot to post this last week, but US U-20 forward Maki Tall signed with Swiss side FC Sion.

Howie posted about Quentin Westberg’s move to Tours in France last week and Greg Seltzer got some quotes from Westberg on the move.

Kenny Saief scored a goal this past weekend and Gent’s website had a mini-interview with him before the game.

Davis VanOpdorp of some website called Bavarian Football Works took a look at Julian Green’s situation at Bayern Munich.  I am mainly posting this for the chart at the bottom comparing Green to other players who came up through their youth system.

Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham are in Denver to take on the MLS All-Stars.  Here is a video of Pochettino talking about DeAndre Yedlin.

We already know that Stuart Holden is awesome, but he wrote some words about rehabbing for The Players’ Tribune.  I would also check out the video on that page (as he “calls out” Michael Bradley!).

According to Greg Seltzer, Cesar Romero is no longer with FC Pyunik and is now in Russia training/trialing with Amkar Perm.

Kevin Dzierzawski played with Peterhead in Scotland on loan from Queen of the South last season.  Now it looks like he has permanently moved to Peterhead.

According to Will Parchman, German-American left back Koray Easterling is training with Manchester City.  And here is another tweet with some more information.

Western Washington goalkeeper Keegan Rogers has signed with IFK Lammhult in Sweden.

And finally, one of the early players we followed when we started this site in 2010 was Jeremiah White.  While he is no longer playing, it is fun when a name pops up that you haven’t heard in a while and he is now into coaching.

A few links for Tuesday
   June 30, 2015 (12:33 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Want some links?  Well, here you go.

According to Steven Goff, the USMNT will be taking on Peru in a friendly at RFK Stadium in Washinton D.C. in September.  The US hasn’t faced Peru since a 1-0 win at the 2000 Gold Cup.

Want to impress your friends with knowledge of the US U-23 goalkeeper pool?  Thankfully we have Will to set us straight.

Brian Span went the full 90 minutes and scored his second league goal of the season in Mariehamn’s 1-1 draw to HIFK on Sunday.  Here are the highlights.  A couple other guys scored if you follow along with our goal tracker.

We also had some goals in friendlies over the last couple days.

Kenny Saief scored for Gent in a 2-2 draw to SK Deinze.  Nermin Crnkic scored a goal for Jablonec in a 2-1 win in something called the Minister Cup.  And Andrew Wooten scored a goal for Sandhausen in a 1-0 win over Würzburger Kickers.

Shaq Moore’s Huracán Valencia CF did not win promotion to Spain’s second division (lost 3-1 on aggregate), but you can learn more about his club here.

Desevio Payne looked pretty good for the US U-20 team earlier this month and he signed a professional deal with Groningen last Friday.

US youth player Brooks Lennon was able to get an Irish passport which is allowing him to sign with Liverpool.

The Seattle Times’ Matt Pentz talked to Jordan Morris about his possible future.

Aron Johannsson might be interested in playing in MLS at some point in the near future.

Steve Cherundolo has been named manager of Hannover’s U-17 team.

Joe Funicello’s career has taken a weird twist and he has been named to the coaching staff at BI/Bolungarvik in Iceland.

To go along with his Serbian/Russian interest, Cesar Romero is also getting looked at by some Mexican clubs according to Greg Seltzer.

And finally, today’s sketchy looking website silly season rumor of the day (so it must be true) has Swansea looking at Matt Miazga.

Quick link action for Tuesday
   January 27, 2015 (12:45 AM) by Matt Benson
 

Let’s get right to the point with these.

The USMNT are in Chile ahead of their friendly on Wednesday.  Here is a photo gallery from Chile.

US Soccer talked to Jurgen Klinsmann and DeAndre Yedlin about calling Yedlin into camp.

Looking for Chile’s roster?  You can find it at the bottom of this link.

USMNT assistant coach Andreas Herzog was named head coach of the US U-23/Olympic team.

Scott French talked to Marc Pelosi about coming back from his broken leg to making his first USMNT camp.

The latest Juan Agudelo rumor has him talking to the New England Revolution.  If the deal is true, that already fun team just got another fun piece.

It looks like Jurgen Klinsmann is trying to help Bobby Wood find a new club.

Fresh off qualifying for the U-20 World Cup, Matt Miazga flew to Qatar and could be trialing/transferring to RB Leipzig.

Speaking of the US U-20 team, in case you missed it, here are highlights of their 2-0 win over El Salvador to qualify for New Zealand.  Romain Gall shared the Golden Boot with Mexico’s Hirving Lozano with each scoring five goals throughout the tournament.

Greg Garza was named to Medio Tiempo’s Liga MX Team of the Week.

We had a few goals this weekend.  Kenny Saief scored for Gent while Jon-Paul Pittman scored for Grimsby Town.  Alfredo Morales scored a goal for Ingolstadt in a friendly.  And Sebastian Lletget scored a goal for West Ham’s U-21 team.

After injuring his groin while out on loan in December, Will Packwood is back in training with Birmingham City.

And finally, Tab Ramos’ son, Alex, has signed a professional contract with Pachuca.  Also of note, he was born in Mexico while Tab was playing with Tigres.
