The OT Report – Weekend Edition

jozyaltidore

After last week’s snoozer of a weekend, we had some excitement this weekend.

Jozy Altidore started the weekend with 11 league goals and 15 in all competitions, but one hat trick later and he walked away with 14 and 18 (highlights here).  Not to be outdone, Clint Dempsey found the back of the net in Fergie time to give Tottenham a 1-1 draw with Manchester United (highlights here).  Deuce has now scored in both games against Manchester United this season.  Both of those guys are giving me some material for a future Inside the Numbers piece.

Maurice Edu came of the bench and played 25 minutes in his Bursaspor debut in Turkey.  He even had one nice shot from distance (highlights here).  It was only a friendly, but Bobby Wood scored for 1860 Munich (highlights here).  Michael Bradley also drew a penalty for Roma, which was converted by Francesco Totti, in Roma’s 1-1 draw to Inter Milan.

Timothy Chandler got the start for Nurnberg, but had to leave the game in the 65th minute due to a speculated concussion.  Hopefully he will be good to go come February so Klinsi can cap tie him to the US and everyone can stop worrying about it.

This is how everyone did this weekend.

    Quite frankly, great weekend abroad. An on-form Jozy is ideal for the Hex. Only low-point is possible concussion from Timmy Chandler. Jurgen is projected to bring 8 or 9 players from camp. I expect the rest of the core to be mainly from this list, and other yanks over there.

  2. Ian says:

    Racing Santander is stinking the place up. They are dead last in the Spanish segunda.

    Helmond Sport is in a promotion playoff spot. I’d really like to see them finally get over the hump.

    Middlesbrough is also in a promotion playoff spot and it would be nice for Harris to get more attention in the EPL.

    Bolton is in the middle of the table, 12 points from a playoff spot and 8 from relegation. Can Holden help them that much?

    Bursaspor is 5th in the league, 1 point from a Europa League spot, 4 from a Champions league spot and 6 from the league leaders. I remember them in the Champions League a few years ago being competitive, but having a crazy (and I mean koo koo ka-razy) striker.

  3. Trevor says:

    I think (am hoping) that the 8 or 9 players were based off the assumption that Edu and Jones were going to be at the camp.
