A day late links

I was going to post these yesterday but I have been a little under the weather and thought my head was going to explode yesterday.  So here we are now.

John D. Halloran did some depth charting with the USMNT earlier this week.

Bob Bradley is being linked to French Ligue 2 side Le Havre.

It looks like Jurgen Klinsmann is not really the US technical director anymore despite the title.  Yay power struggles.

So I guess Fabian Johnson is not hurt as he plugged away another 90 minutes in Champions League action this week.

Darlington Nagbe is finally on Jurgen Klinsmann’s radar.

Rubio Rubin needs surgery for a stress fracture in his foot.

The US U-23 team will face Colombia in a two-game playoff in March for a spot in the Olympics.  We don’t know the exact dates/venues yet, but the first game will be in Colombia.

Jordan Morris continues to do Jordan Morris things at Stanford.

Adam Bedell scored a goal in Denmark earlier this week.

Learn more on Jordan Siebatcheu courtesy of Brian Sciaretta.

Zak Whitbread signed a short-term deal with Shrewsbury Town last week.

Fernando Arce Jr. scored a goal with Tijuana’s U-20 team last week.

Here is a video of Christian Eissele and Kemi Kings celebrating their league title.

And finally, New York Red Bulls Academy graduate Kyle Duncan has signed with French Ligue 2 club Valenciennes FC.

This is why we can’t have nice things links

So Saturday sucked.

In case you want to throw up some more, here are the highlights of the 3-2 loss.  The ratings were pretty good for the game.

Moving on from that game, Jurgen Klinsmann has called in five players and sent home eight players on Sunday.  Then Klinsi got all pissy at Fabian Johnson and sent him home.

First off, not defending Klinsmann, but Fabian Johnson looked like a guy who wanted no part of that game after about 15 minutes.  Could it be injuries?  Could it be that he has played poorly in the heat before?  Could it be that he was mad at the bus driver for not stopping at In-N-Out on the way to the Rose Bowl?  Who knows the reason but he did not play well on Saturday and asked to be subbed out late in the game.

That said, Klinsmann could have sent him home and just told the media that he wanted to give him rest but instead he threw Johnson under the bus.  2015 has not been a good year for Mr. Klinsmann.

As one would expect, there is not a lot of buzz for Tuesday’s friendly against Costa Rica and ticket sales do not look good.  It looks like Tim Howard will start at goalie.

Also on “Black Saturday”, the US U-23 team lost to Honduras in the important semifinal match of Olympic qualifying (highlights).  Andi Herzog was sent off so assistant John Hackworth will be coaching the team tomorrow.  Since they lost on Saturday, they now have to beat Canada on Tuesday then beat Colombia in a one-game playoff in March in order to qualify for the Olympics.

The US U-20 team is in Germany for the Mercedes-Benz Cup and tied Mexico 3-3 in their last game.  They also had a 2-2 draw with Scotland and an 8-1 loss to Germany during the week.

Terrence Boyd has had a setback and needs another surgery.  Ugh.

US Soccer officials finally attended a meeting last week for Copa America Centenario.

Sam Allardyce was recently named Sunderland’s new manager, but Bob Bradley was sort of being linked as a possibility last week.

Jordan Siebatcheu is a 19-year-old forward currently playing at French Ligue 1 side Reims (three goals in eight games this season).  Apparently he was born in Washington D.C. and would be interested in possibly playing for the US.

Over in Rumorville, according to Footy Headlines, the next US home jersey which will come out in 2016 will be black (blah!) and will have the new crest that was rumored a couple months ago.

Hopefully things go a little better this week.
