Eugene Starikov is officially on loan with Tom Tomsk
   August 2, 2013 (6:56 AM) by Howie
 

Again.

The 24 year-old spent parts of the 2010 and 2011 seasons on loan in Siberia, where his play in fall 2010 was intriguing enough to get a callup to January camp in 2011. (He ultimately scored two goals in thirty apperances.) After dropping off the radar/not playing for Zenit St. Petersburg’s first team, he was loaned to FC Rostov last year, where once again he scored twice (this team in just nine appearances).

OT readers interested in watching Starikov in person would be well-advised to make their trips sooner or much later. The average high in Tomsk is 23.4°F…in November. It’s 12°F in December, 9°F in January, and 14.7°F in February. They also average 140 snowy days/year. After reading that, I will refrain from complaining about Iowa weather for at least the first week of winter this year.

A few links before the weekend.

After Jurgen Klinsmann wins his second World Cup in 2018, it looks like he can pass the torch to Pep Guardiola.  Dynasty!

One of Pep’s current players, Julian Green, gets the full Brian Sciaretta treatment this week (a.k.a. an informative interview).

The Gregg Berhalter era at Hammarby in Sweden ended on Wednesday as the former US international was “sacked”.

According to Greg Seltzer, Eugene Starikov is finalizing a transfer to Tom Tomsk.  Starikov scored two goals in 30 league appearances for Tom Tomsk while being on loan from Zenit Saint Petersburg in 2010-11.

For those you waiting to order a Danny Williams/Reading jersey, you can go ahead now since he will wear #23 this season.

Stoke City are in the US on their preseason tour and lost, 2-0, to the Houston Dynamo last night.  Geoff Cameron played 89 minutes for Stoke City in his return to Houston.  Maurice Edu is also with the team during this tour as he slowly works his way back from a hernia.

We had a Jonathan Bornstein sighting earlier this week.  Bornstein came off the bench for Tigres in their 1-0 loss to Cruz Azul Hidalgo in the Copa MX.

A Josh Gatt-less Molde FK advanced in Champions League with a 2-0 win (3-0 on aggregate) over Sligo Rovers earlier this week.  Eighteen-year-old Ben Spencer made Molde’s bench, but did not play.

Seth Moses was last seen in Austria with Rheindorf Altach in 2011-12, but now he is back in the US playing with the Seattle Sounders’ reserve team.

Mario Rodriguez scored two goals earlier this week in Borussia Mönchengladbach II’s 18-0 win in a preseason friendly.  I am guessing the opponent wasn’t that good.

Junior Flores played with Borussia Dortmund’s U-19 team against a China U-19 team at the Ruhr International Cup yesterday.  Some US fans might not like this.

I am headed to Chicago on Sunday (going to miss out on the Gold Cup final, horrible planning on my part) for my yearly pilgrimage to see some family and friends for the week.  Posting could be light by me next week or it could be normal.  I have no clue on my internet situation (or how much free time I will have).  That was your warning.  Good talk.

A couple more new kits for 2013-14
   July 24, 2013 (10:00 AM) by Matt
 

Birmingham City released a new kit for 2013-14 earlier this week.  Jonathan Spector (and hopefully Will Packwood one day) will wear this in away games this season.

While he probably won’t see action in any Champions League games, Julian Green’s Bayern Munich released their third/Champions League shirts for 2013-14 on Tuesday.

While we are at it, here is a look at their home shirt for this season.

And finally, Eugene Starikov (remember him?) is back at Zenit St. Petersburg (actually Zenit St. Petersburg II in the Russian Second Division [third tier] according to Transfermarkt) after being out on loan with Rostov last season.  They released their new home and away shirts for next season recently.

Howie’s Pick – Conor O’Brien (FC Nordsjælland – Danish Superliga)

Conor O’Brien ended a stellar season with his first Nordsjælland goal in a 1-0 victory over Esbjerg (highlights here).

Matt’s Pick – Eugene Starikov (Rostov- Russian Premier League)

Eugene Starikov hasn’t played much this year, but he took advantage of some playing time and scored two goals last Friday (highlights here).

The USMNT kicks off the Hex on Wednesday against Honduras.  The game will be at 4 PM ET on beIN Sport.  It is being played in the afternoon since Honduras wants to play in the sun and heat.  Apparently Honduras declared Wednesday a national holiday so the country can watch the game.

US Soccer gives us a video tour of Estadio Olimpico in Honduras (the video is from 2009, but it still gives you a look).  US Soccer has also posted field-level highlights from the friendly against Canada.

Brent Latham (ESPN Insider) looks at the January transfer moves and their impact with the USMNT.

It doesn’t look like Tim Howard or Brad Guzan will have to look over their shoulder for Mix Diskerud moving up the goalkeeper ranks.

Nothing new to report on the financial situation at Brøndby, but Clarence Goodson played in a friendly for them this weekend.

Eugene Starikov played in a friendly for Rostov this weekend and picked up an assist.

Michael Bradley will have a new manager at Roma since Zdenek Zeman was fired this weekend after their 4-2 loss to Cagliari.  Aurelio Andreazzoli is now the interim manager.

Zak Whitbread is making progress, but still not fully back from his calf injury.

Daniel Antunez was spotted in a Chivas USA friendly last week.  Antunez last played for Inter Turku in Finland in 2012.

That is it for the links.  The USMNT roster should be announced some time this morning as well.  One possible surprise name on the roster?  Kim Kardashian.

Here is some stuff from the weekend.

The USMNT are now in Houston gearing up for tomorrow’s friendly against Canada.  Canada’s young and inexperienced team lost to Denmark, 4-0, on Saturday.

The Shin Guardian has their official preview up for tomorrow’s game.

Jurgen Kinsmann recaps the camp so far in this video.  Grant Wahl also informs us that Klinsi has been using a helicopter to travel between his Orange County home and the camp while it was in Carson.  If only I had one to avoid the 405 traffic.  Also while training at the Home Depot Center, the team hung out with the U-15 team.  Pretty cool idea.

Brian Sciaretta spoke to Houston Dynamo forward Will Bruin about the current camp.  While Andrew Keh talked to Alejandro Bedoya about being a free agent.

Hann0ver 96 are still unsure of when Steve Cherundolo will return to the field.  Cherundolo has missed the last couple games and did return to training last week only to have a set back.  But he did train today.

Geoff Cameron missed Stoke City’s game this past weekend, but it sounds like he should be back for tomorrow’s game against Wigan.  For those counting at home, the likely starting backline for the US (Cherundolo, Cameron, Bocanegra and Johnson) have all missed at least one game this month due to injury.  Hopefully they can get healthy before the Honduras qualifier.

Speaking of Honduras, here is their roster for that qualifier.

Brian Sciaretta also talked to Maurice Edu recently to talk about his start in Turkey.

It looks like Aron Johannsson is making the move from AGF Aarhus to AZ Alkmaar.  Maybe Jozy Altidore can convince him to play for the US?  That said, I am wondering if this move is about lining up a Jozy replacement since most pundits think he will be making a move to a bigger club this summer.

DC United midfielder Nick DeLeon declined a call-up with Trinidad & Tobago.  He is dreaming of a future USMNT call-up.

Eugene Starikov and Rostov defeated some team 17-1 (!) in a friendly this weekend with Starikov scoring two goals.

We have a Jemal Johnson sighting (not to be confused with Jamel Johnson)!

Jeff Carlisle gives us an update on Junior Flores.

And finally, some American named Patrick Otte is on trial at Leeds.

Not quite as cool as a one-point safety, but some links
   January 3, 2013 (9:01 PM) by Matt
 

That is a Fiesta Bowl reference.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Sacha Kljestan to talk about about his rise in status at both the club and country level.  And Daniel Renders gives Sciaretta a cool stat about Anderlecht’s record with/without Kljestan.  And this has prompted me to start up on an Inside the Numbers piece, which will hopefully be up in the morning.

Kljestian has 18 months left on his contract, but there are on-going talks over a new deal/extension.

Julian De Martinis of ESPN writes about Michael Bradley’s first six months at Roma.

Noah Davis gives us 20 wishes for the USMNT in 2013.

The USMNT January/Camp Cupcake will now begin on January 7, not January 14.  And expect the roster to be announced on Sunday, with the possibility of one small surprise.

Euan Holden has parted ways with Stockport County.  Holden appeared in only one league game in 2012-13 after playing in 33 games last season.

Tim Ream and Bolton are trying to find out why they can’t win two games in a row.

I hope Brian Sciaretta has PennyTalk as after he was talking to Sacha Kljestan, he got an interview with Eugene Starikov in Russia.  Maybe Sciaretta can teach me how to take a penalty kick…..

The always seemingly injured Zak Whitbread is out with a calf injury.

Robbie Rogers hasn’t played much as of late with Stevenage, but his loan ends on January 15.

Julian Green was nominated for some type of Sportsman of the Year award.

It looks like the site’s server woke up from its post-turkey nap and is running somewhat faster.  That all said, here are a few links from the last week or so.

This report out of Scotland has Celtic manager Neil Lennon wanting to sign Juan Agudelo after impressing during his training stint with the Scottish club.  STV Sport also did a 13-minute video interview with Agudelo right here.

Some Danish reports are saying Jurgen Klinnsman will help Michael Parkhurst find a new club come January.

Jose Torres is making the move from Pachuca to Tigres UANL.

Staying in Mexico, Tijuana (Joe Corona, Edgar Castillo, Greg Garza) are headed to the Liga MX final to face Toluca after defeating Leon 3-2 on aggregate.  Both Corona and Castillo started in yesterday’s second-leg victory.  By making the final, they also earned a spot in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League.

Greg Seltzer talked to Matt Taylor last week about his success in Germany.

The Bolton News recently did an interview with Tim Ream.  Ream started at defensive midfielder on Saturday in Bolton’s 1-1 draw to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Continuing with the interviews, Brian K. Blickenstaff spent some time with Danny Williams in Germany.

Brian Sciaretta looks at some potential options for the USMNT central defense aside from Geoff Cameron.

Here is a highlight video of Kemi Kings’ Christian Eissele and his 2012 season in Finland, which saw him lead the Kakkonen in goals.

As for some noteworthy performances from the weekend.  Fabian Johnson scored for Hoffenheim in their 2-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen (highlights here).  Clint Dempsey assisted on one goal and “hockey” assisted on another in Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over West Ham United (highlights here).  And Charlie Davies head-butted a guy (highlights here).

Marc Heider scored his eighth goal of the season in Holstein Kiel’s 3-0 win over Victoria Hamburg in German Regionalliga action.  Eugene Starikov is starting to get more playing time in Russia, getting another start for Rostov in their 2-0 win over Mordovia Saransk.  And Bobby Wood has fought his way back from injuries to make an appearance off the bench (16 minutes) for 1860 Munich in their 2-2 draw to Union Berlin.
