Links and some updates on the site
   March 14, 2013 (12:01 AM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Lets start off with some site-related issues.  You may have noticed that the site has been loading really slowly over the last 24 hours and has its moments like this every so often.  I am currently in talks with the hosting company on trying to fix these issues.

As for the next issue, I know some of you who check out the site on their cell phone will sometimes have some “pay day loans” ad scroll across the site making it tough to read.  This site is not supposed to have ads so something is secretly embedding the ads and I am still working on getting this fixed as well.

As for a minor change that is sort of “fun”.  The comments now give you some Spacer Invader-like icon next to your name instead of the silhouette of the head when you post if you don’t have your own gravatar.

And finally, we are looking for a graphic designer for help with a project that could be really cool if we can pull it off.  What we need help with is outside my level of expertise with photoshop.  Please use the contact page to e-mail us if you are interested.

Now lets get to the links.

Our goal tracker was busy yesterday with Bobby Wood, DaMarcus Beasley and Herculez Gomez all scoring goals.  Also in action on Wednesday was Clarence Goodson in Brøndby’s 1-1 draw in the Danish Cup.

Mexico released its roster for the upcoming qualifiers.  And Jon Arnold gave ASN a quick rundown of Costa Rica’s roster.

Brian Sciaretta took a guess at the names that will appear on the US roster.  While Neil Blackmon takes a look at the US midfield.

If you missed it yesterday, the Gold Cup groups and schedule were released.  And this has sort of been rumored in the past already, but it looks like the June 18th qualifier against Honduras will be in Utah at Rio Tinto.

The always good for a couple of laughs Jimmy Conrad did a video interview with Jozy Altidore.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Terrence Boyd to talk about his progress at Rapid Vienna and where he stands in the USMNT picture.

It now appears that Juan Ocegueda will not be able to play for Chivas Guadalajara and he can’t be sent to Chivas USA since he would have to enter a MLS lottery so he is in limbo land.

And finally, Anthony Brooks might miss this weekend’s game due to a cold (or thanks to Google Translate, he is just really cold).  And Brooks was called into Germany’s U-20 camp, although some say the U-20 team is not that serious compared to the U-21 team (the U-21 Euros are this summer) in Germany, so this could be a good thing for his US hopes.

    Hey Matt,

    Feeling a little dense here sorry. Why should the following give me hope for him playing for the US?

    “And Brooks was called into Germany’s U-20 camp, although some say the U-20 team is not that serious compared to the U-21 team (the U-21 Euros are this summer) in Germany, so this could be a good thing for his US hopes.”

    No one cares about the U-20 in Germany? They do care about the U-21 but Brooks isn’t likely to get a call up to the U-21?

  3. Matt says:

    I am not 100% certain, but I have read that the U-20 level is not that serious in Germany. They take the U-21 level a lot more serious (and if you make the U-21 stuff, they are looking at you for the future of the national team).

    Right now, he is only getting U-20 looks. So the thought process is he will see that he does not fit in the German national team picture and will pick the US since apparently the USMNT scouts have visited/watched him recently so there is some speculation he might get a USMNT invite (Gold Cup?) this summer.

    A lot of this is just speculation, but only getting a U-20 invite by Germany is a lot better for the US’s chances compared to him getting a U-21 invite for their U-21 Euros this summer.

    Time for JK to one up Germany and invite Brooks to a senior camp.
