A bunch of links for Tuesday evening.
In case you don’t follow us on Twitter or Facebook, but we have a new addition to the site. We are going to try and track every goal scored this calendar year. You can find our goal tracker by clicking the goals link above in the navigation bar.
I posted on Monday about Graham Zusi and Juan Agudelo training at West Ham this week, but it looks like at least Zusi’s trip is an actual trial.
Sticking with the MLS-to-Europe training stints, DC United goalkeepers Joe Willis and Andrew Dykstra are both headed to England to train with different clubs (Sunderland for Willis and Hartlepool United for Dykstra).
Matt over at The Shin Guardian did a detailed depth chart of the USMNT as we enter 2013. And Brian Sciaretta gives us his breakdown of the January camp.
Not too of a shock, but Grant Wahl is hearing that ESPN won/bought the rights to the US-Mexico qualifier at Azteca. So ESPN should have that game plus all the home qualifiers, while beIN Sport should have all the rest of the road qualifiers if I am remembering this correctly.
A week after playing in an indoor reserve match, Stuart Holden took the field outside in Bolton’s reserves’ 3-0 win over Oldham Athletic’s reserves. Holden got the start and played 65 minutes, which got some good reviews of his performance.
While he is coming back from injury, Will Packwood is scheduled to have a second surgery on his broken leg.
US U-18 midfielder Zach Pfeffer scored a goal in his first friendly since going out on loan at Hoffenheim.
Marc Pelosi got the start and went the full 90 minutes in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Inter Milan in the NextGen Series (U-19 tournament). With the win, Liverpool advance to the next round.
Parker Walsh could be headed back to Karlsruher SC.
Not a surprise, but Stoke City are open to loaning out Maurice Edu. Edu has only appeared in one game with the Potters since making the move from Rangers to Stoke City.
Clarence Goodson’s Brøndby are having some money issues and the players might have to take a pay cut or the club might go bankrupt.
Alejandro Bedoya apparently has some suitors in Spain, German, Denmark and Sweden. Bedoya is expected to stay with the USMNT until a deal is finalized.
Conor O’Brien also has a few different teams looking at him according to Greg Seltzer.
American Jack Stefanowski has been named the head coach of Nepal’s national team.
Alecko Eskandarian tells us a cool story about Clint Dempsey from 2005’s Camp Cupcake.
And finally, Sciaretta has another interview with Sacha Kljestan.
