A few links for the night

A few things worth checking out.

It looks like Rosenborg are planning on offering a contract extension to Mix Diskerud.  And a Norwegian report claims that Mix would be open to a Norway call-up, but he doesn’t think he will get one.

Staying in Norway, Brian Sciaretta caught up with Steve Clark to talk about his season with Honefoss.

Eric Lichaj picked up an injury over the weekend in Aston Villa’s 1-0 win over Sunderland.

Zac MacMath is headed back to Everton to train with the Toffees again this offseason.  MacMath has trained with the English club in the past and some might know that Everton’s goalkeeper coach, Chris Woods, is also the US goalkeeper coach (since Klinsmann took over).

Finnish club Haka will be debating over the offseason whether to keep Jordan Seabrook or not.  Seabrook played in 11 games with Haka as they were relegated from the Veikkausliiga to the Ykkönen.

Brent Latham, writing for ESPN FC (Insider), writes about the challenges Tab Ramos will face as the U-20s begin their 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup qualifying in February.

And finally, CONCACAF should be having a live online stream of the World Cup hexagonal draw on its website on Wednesday at 8 PM Eastern.

    Mix see’s how deep the U.S. is at CM, so it doesn’t surprise me that he wants to be called into Norway’s national team. He is not going to displace Jones, Williams, or Bradley. And now Connor O’Brien is bursting onto the scene in a better and more competitive league in Denmark; not to mention Holden could be back by May, and not to mention Klinsmann still has Torres in his plans. I wouldn’t begrudge Diskerud at all for wanting to play for Norway who is thin at CM.

    Mix ought not to be concerned–he isn’t a DM for us anyway. He’s an attacking midfielder or controlling (but not defensive) midfielder. His passes and soft touch are money and we need them.

    He is, however, competing with Conor O’Brien, Torres, and Bradley. Not really competing with Williams, Jones, or Holden though.

    I think he’s young enough that he ought to stick around. Still Norway is a big team too.
