Lets dive right into it.

Landon Donovan spoke at a Galaxy town-hall meeting on Sunday and shot down any rumors linking him to Mexico and any winter loans to Europe.  Sounds like he wants to rest up before diving back into the MLS/World Cup grind.

As for Clint Dempsey and his rumored loan move to Europe, the latest and the most believable of the moment has him headed back to West London with Fulham for two months.  But nothing official has come out yet (The Guardian cites US sources yet everything in the US is citing The Guardian/various European sites.  Yay transfer rumors!).

CONCACAF announced the winners of the inaugural CONCACAF awards this past weekend.  Tim Howard won Goalkeeper of the Year, while Jurgen Klinsmann won Coach of the Year.

UEFA held its draw for the knockout stages of Champions League and Europa League.  In Champions League, Jermaine Jones and Schalke landed Real Madrid.  As for Europa League, Brad Friedel and Tottenham will play FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, while Aron Johannsson and AZ Alkmaar got FC Slovan Liberec.

Bob Bradley has turned down an offer with the Vancouver Whitecaps to seek opportunities overseas.  Bob also admits the interest from Norwegian side Stabaek which we posted about a couple weeks ago.  Bradley also did an interview recently with

John Brooks was subbed out of Hertha Berlin’s game in the first half this weekend after being at fault for one of the goals.  His manager, Jos Luhukay, also told him (via the press) that he needs to grow up and become an adult.

Who knows if they will continue to scout him or not with the recent firing of Steve Clarke, but it looks like West Brom scouts have been paying attention to Timmy Chandler.

Brian Sciaretta spoke to German-American fullback Jeremy Toljan last week.  But from the sounds of it, it doesn’t look like he has a huge connection with the US.  Who knows though.

USMNT forward Eddie Johnson sounds like he is close to making a move to D.C. United.

Stuart Holden is back in the UK to finish up his rehabbing and poked his head into the Bolton locker room this past weekend.

For those of you that don’t follow Liga MX in Mexico, Leon just won the title this fall with Mexican-American goalkeeper William Yarbrough.

Staying in Mexico, Jonathan Bornstein could finally be on the way out at Tigres according to a couple different reports in Mexico.

And finally, in case you missed it yesterday, Steve Clark is returning to the US to play for the Columbus Crew.

Steve Clark leaves Hønefoss for Columbus
   December 16, 2013 (8:34 PM) by Howie Michaels

Another Europe-based American is returning to the States. This time, it’s goalkeeper Steve Clark, who was unable to prevent Hønefoss  from being relegated (despite playing really well) and sort of became the hipster US goalkeeper while earning accolades in Norway. Columbus sent Seattle a token draft pick because the Sounders had his discovery rights (I think, it’s also possible they just felt like being generous because MLS is weird at times).

After years of playing for the small club in Norway, Clark will be moving to a club just a few hours from his hometown in Michigan. Hopefully he will be able to rent on his MLS salary and not live in a tent in the woods like he did in college.

Columbus has a new coach, former Hammarby boss Gregg Berhalter, who would apparently think highly of Clark because in another move, they shipped their starting keeper for the last two years, Andy Gruenebaum, to Sporting Kansas City.

It’s early, but I wager this basically guarantees that the OT XI Goalkeeper will come from England (Clark was definitely a threat to unseat Howard/Guzan).

A couple things for Wednesday
   October 9, 2013 (6:00 AM) by Matt Benson

First off, we are bringing back our Top 5 Lists series and Howie decided to annoy US Soccer fans.  And if you haven’t already, check out our new USMNT jersey history page.

The big news of yesterday was Michael Orozco replacing Omar Gonzalez on the USMNT roster as Gonzalez picked up a hip strain.  Yet another injury.  And this probably means that Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron will get the start at centerback.

Here is what Jamaica’s 23-man roster looks like.

US Soccer put up a video of the team doing a bunch of fitness tests.

Greg Seltzer has some nuggets on various USMNT players, including that Arsenal have been scouting Brad Guzan.  Nothing more than that, but they are at least watching him.

Fresh off his clean sheet against Rosenborg, Steve Clark did interviews with Mathew Wagner and Greg Seltzer.

Jose Torres denied allegations of going out and partying the night after picking up a red card over the weekend.

Brian Sciaretta spoke to Duane Holmes about his dreams to play for the US.

Ghana want to play Bob Bradley and Egypt at a neutral venue for Egypt’s home leg due to security concerns.

Hønefoss vs. Rosenborg Highlights
   October 6, 2013 (2:54 PM) by Matt Benson

Steve Clark came up with some big saves in Hønefoss’ 0-0 draw to Mix Diskerud and Rosenborg on Sunday.  Mix almost scored early in the game with a header that just went wide.  Here are the highlights.

Hønefoss vs. Brann Highlights
   July 8, 2013 (5:04 PM) by Matt Benson

Steve Clark went the full 90 minutes in Hønefoss’ 1-1 draw to Brann.  In these highlights, Clark gives up a goal after he can’t contain a rebound, but he also makes a nice diving save later.

   May 25, 2013 (6:29 PM) by Matt Benson

Josh Gatt and Molde FK got some much needed three points in a 4-0 win over Kenneth Di Vita Jensen, Steve Clark and Hønefoss.  Gatt went the full 90 minutes, picking up a yellow card and laying the ball off to Magnus Wolff Eikrem for Molde’s second goal.  Here are the highlights.

Links from the last couple days
   May 7, 2013 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

Lets get right to it.

Much like last year, it looks like AZ Alkmaar probably won’t release Jozy Altidore for the beginning of the upcoming USMNT camp.

It appears that Michael Bradley does know how to smile between this photo and this video.

Staying in the Bradley family, here is a trailer for the upcoming Bob Bradley/Egypt documentary.

Brek Shea made the travel roster, but did not dress in Stoke City’s 1-1 draw yesterday.  I guess Ian Darke talked about it more at halftime, but he also tweeted that they are working on getting him 100% match fit as he finally got over his foot injury.  Here is also a story from England where it mentions that Tony Pulis brought Shea to the club with next year in mind.

It is not quite the silly season just yet, but we have our first rumor on a possible Jonathan Spector move to newly promoted Cardiff City.

Jermaine Jones talked to about Schalke’s last couple of games.

Honefoss goalkeeper Steve Clark was fined for taunting opponents during the club’s Norwegian Cup match from last week.  He was fined 20,000 Norwegian crowns, which the internet tells me is about $3,500 or 1,000 Schrute bucks.

Jon-Paul Pittman was one of 12 players released by Oxford United this week.  Pittman scored two goals in 15 appearances in 2012-13.

I posted about Paul Arriola’s move to Tijuana last week and he recently talked to Tom Marshall about making the move.

Here is a photo of Junior Flores in his new Borussia Dortmund gear.

Finally, both Julian Green and Russell Canouse scored for their teams in German U-19 action and you can view the goals in this U-19 video recap of the weekend (their games are the first two games highlighted in the video).  Hell of a strike by Canouse.

Hønefoss vs. Start Highlights
   March 17, 2013 (11:39 PM) by Matt Benson

Steve Clark and Hønefoss opened up the season falling behind 3-0 and rallied to score two goals, but could not complete the comeback in this 3-2 loss.  Clark made a couple nice saves that are in these highlights.
