Monday night links

I have an Inside the Numbers piece on Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore which should be on the site later tonight or early tomorrow.

Speaking of Dempsey, he talked to the London Evening Standard about his good run of form.

So Friday got a little crazy with the Brek Shea news.  Big D Soccer does a good job of breaking down what we know so far.  And there was a Shea sighting at FC Dallas training today.  Sounds like he was running around a little.

Landon Donovan will be returning to the LA Galaxy in 2013.  I am assuming this means we will see him in a USMNT jersey in the future.

As of last Thursday, only 8500 tickets have been sold in Houston for the upcoming friendly against Canada.

The US U-20 team lost to Panama, 2-1, in a friendly today.

After traveling to Turkey to check things out, Clarence Goodson has decided to turn down a move to Orduspor.

As rumored, former Halmstads BK defender Ryan Miller signed with the Portland Timbers.

You can add Birmingham City to the list of teams having financial issues.  They are open to any offer on any of their first-team players.  Will this mean anything to Jonathan Spector (likely not Will Packwood)?

In the good news department, Timothy Chandler did not suffer a concussion this weekend and will return to training on Tuesday.

Tim Ream got some love in the Bolton News about his play this past weekend.

US U-20 regular Juan Ocegueda is headed to Chivas de Guadalajara on loan.  People are wondering if this will affect his ability to play with the US since Chivas released a statement last November saying that their players could not play for foreign national teams.

I am sort of sad to see this move, but Aaron Wheeler signed with the Philadelphia Union.  I am sad since I won’t be able to mention his old team, Finnish side KooTeePee, anymore.

J.R. Eskilson is hearing that Chivas USA youth academy product Ben Spencer will be joining Molde FK during their preseason trip to Spain.

Columbus Crew forward Aaron Horton has been loaned to Bosnia’s FK Sarajevo.

    That last link seems odd to me. A loan for an MLS forward to a Bosnian team?Why?

  2. Ian says:

    I wonder why the game against Canada is in Houston? It’s only a friendly so you would think they would hold it in a location both sets of fans could easily get to.
