Friday morning links
   November 30, 2012 (12:45 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

A couple quick links for your Friday morning reading pleasure.

Here is a quick write-up from Bobby Wood’s start for 1860 Munich earlier this week.

Ryan Miller looks back at his season with Halmstads BK.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with US U-20 forward Jack McBean the week of MLS Cup.

Clint Dempsey thinks he was undervalued at Fulham.  He will get his chance to score against Fulham this weekend.

Doug McIntyre of ESPN Insider wonders if Icelandic-American Aron Johannsson could bolster the US attack.

Seb Hines is hoping his recent strong play has caught the eye of Jurgen Klinsmann.

Greg Seltzer likes numbers.  We like numbers.  He looked at some numbers about Oguchi Onyewu.

I missed this last week, but Eric Lichaj has a pretty gnarly mustache going on right now.

    Did any of The Village People ever have a Aston Villa guy?

  2. daniil says:

    I think we should definately throw Seb Hines into the mix, at least in the Gold Cup. He’s in fine form, and we could use all the center-backs we can get. Plus getting him on the field in the Gold Cup would cap tie him for us in a competition that doesn’t mean much anyways.

  3. Bozeman says:

    He’s probably doing Movember… at least I hope so…

  4. Bird says:

    Another start and a goal today for Bobby Wood. Good to see him back and playing.

  5. 2tone says:

    Bobby Wood scores a goal. I am telling this guy will be a game chnger for the Nats. Dude has exceptional skill.

  6. Trent Hill says:

    I can’t believe we still havent called up Hines. He’s a central defender excelling in the Championship and headed for promotion while we search desperately for options. No brainer.

  7. Trent Hill says:

    And for the record:I think we’ve still got a good shot at Johanson. He isn’t cap-tied and he knows Iceland isn’t going to be in any world-cups. Sure, you get to play in European competition, but you’re never expected to qualify. Come play here kid.

  8. daniil says:

    Iceland isn’t that poor a side… on paper they’re in the same league as teams like slovenia, poland, greece, who have been to the world cup recently. Its not quite the almost automatic path for the US, but id imagine they’ve got enough of a shot that Johansson would want to play for his real home country.

  9. Trent Hill says:

    On what paper?

    Greece won the Euros in 2004. They regularly qualify for both the Euros and WC. Same goes for Slovenia. Poland lesser so.

    Iceland has not even qualified for the Euros. Ever. Or for the World Cup. Ever.

  10. Gordon says:

    Clint dempsey is unbelievably overrated. It’s hard to watch him play without cringing

  11. Dirk says:


    That’s a knee jerk reaction to a slow start if I ever heard one. It takes time to settle in with a new club, and Clint is slowly starting to pick up his game. Silly comments make me cringe.
