More than a few days worth of links

A bunch of goodies from the last week.

Clint Dempsey was named Fútbol de Primera’s US Soccer 2012 Player of the Year for the second straight year.  It was Dempsey’s third time winning the award (also in 2006), but Michael Bradley probably would have won my vote.

Speaking of Dempsey, Fulham have accepted Liverpool’s apology over their recruitment of Dempsey over the summer and have withdrawn their complaint.

Tim Howard will be making his 200th consecutive Premier League appearance on Saturday.  Timmy!

Steve Davis had breakfast with Jurgen Klinsmann recently and they talked about Carlos Bocanegra’s current role with the USMNT.

Bobby Wood has played his way into a new contract with 1860 Munich through the 2014-15 season.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Sebastian Lletget to talk about breaking through with West Ham United.

Bryan Gerzicich has been cleared to play again for Ironi Kiryat Shmona after picking up a calf injury.

Benny Feilhaber signed with Sporting KC this week, but he apparently had some European suitors according to Greg Seltzer.

Seltzer also tells us that Alejandro Bedoya has been offered an extension by Helsingborg, while Swedish champions Elfsborg are also interested in his services.

A bunch of clubs are interested in Michael Parkhurst, who is now a free agent.

Jamie Hill ponders what a 2013 Olympic team would look like if there was one this year.

According to this report, Klinsmann has contacted Aron Johannsson about playing for the US and he “is now in doubt” over his decision.

Conor O’Brien has turned down a couple offers already and is meeting up with some more new teams according to his agent.

Rapid Vienna might be interested in Mix Diskerud.  Much like with Boyd’s move, USMNT assistant Andreas Herzog was the reference.  Speaking of Boyd, here is a Google-translated interview he recently did.

Adam Henley was invited to the upcoming US U-20 camp, but Blackburn nixed that idea.

San Antonio Scorpions defender Karsten Smith is currently on trial at Finnish side VPS.

Marc Pelosi is with Liverpool’s youth team in Singapore at the NexLions Cup.  And they were “mobbed” at the airport.

Conor Doyle made Derby County’s bench this past weekend for the first time since he had his appendix removed.

  1. Andy says:

    Great links! Especially the Aron Johannsson one. Hopefully not false hope

  2. Trent Hill says:

    1.) Feilhaber should’ve gone back to Scandinavia. Money is just as good/better and it might’ve gotten him back into the USMNT picture.
    2.) The “follow my heart” comment from Johannson tells me he is leaning towards Iceland, but knows the USA will be better for his career.
    3.) I would’ve voted for Bradley too.
    4.) Bedoya has some good options on his plate. Sign on with a team that clearly likes him or with the champions of his league. Either way, good for him.
    5.) Parkhurst needs to think hard about this. He needs to go to a team where he will START.
    6.) Mix going to Rapid would be good for the future of the USMNT.
    7.) Here’s hoping we have a real shot at Henley. He’d be a big get.

    If we can nab Henley and Johannson, it will be easier to get the other duals, like Thomas Delaney, Fabian Hurzeler, and Shawn Parker. I’m hoping Seb Hines is going to get called up too.
