A bit of this and a bit of that
   April 8, 2013 (11:57 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

It looks like Jurgen Klinsmann would be open to staying on as USMNT manager beyond 2014.

Anthony Brooks recently did an interview with Berliner Kurier where he claims that he will make a decision on US vs. Germany in the coming weeks.

Mr. Soccer Insider Steven Goff is being told that Bryan Gerzicich might be making a move to MLS this summer.  Greg Seltzer is also hearing the same thing and adds that he has an offer from a team in Belgium.

In the “sounds about right for his crazy career” department, Freddy Adu has been at the club for about a week now and his manager at Brazilian side Bahia has already been fired.

Brian Span and Djurgården’s game against Mjällby on Monday was suspended due to Djurgården’s fans throwing beer bottles onto the field.

Want to see Michael Bradley in an Italian Volkswagen ad?  Why not.

US U-20 forward Daniel Cuevas has returned to full training after tearing his meniscus at the CONCACAF U-20 Championship.

Joe Gyau did a Google Hangout with SWOL yesterday where he talked about life in Germany and the USMNT among other things.

Jason Davis is doing a new morning daily show and had Terrence Boyd on as one of his first guests.

It was only a friendly, but Christian Eissele scored a goal this weekend in Kemi Kings’ 3-1 win over Alex Molano, Lester Dewee and Bodens BK.

The US U-17 team opened up the CONCACAF U-17 Championship with a 3-0 win over Haiti.  They play Guatemala next on Thursday.

  1. Jason says:

    Thanks for the articles. Website looks nice without the ad clutter on my mobile.

  2. Trent Hill says:

    Here’s hoping Brooks picks us. Morales–convince him! Klinsi, make some calls.

    Sounds like bad news for Adu–poor kid. I hope he can do well anyway.

    Gerzicich may be looking to play himself into a few USMNT caps and more money (not to mention more security). Landing in Belgium would likely be better for all of those things.

  3. Gregory says:

    Even if Brooks chooses Germany u21 he still could switch to the USA by next summer for the World Cup. I never blame a player for wanting to play for Germany, but I don’t see him making Germany’s Roster for Brazil. I’ll forgive a traitor or whatever you call him if he’s good enough to start for USMNT.

  4. Trent Hill says:

    Gregory, agreed. But he apparently recently said he was going to make a decision in the next year. My guess is that if he is passed over by the German underaged teams, or gets the feeling he isn’t really likely to get full team starts, then he’s going to abandon ship for the US. After all, he has said in the past that the USMNT is his first choice because that’s what his dad wants him to choose.

  5. Trevor says:

    I just don’t see how JAB could pick Germany’s u21 and make the WC roster. He needs to get situated. He seems to have the talent, or ceiling at least, for a WC vying team but he needs to get settled into the system.

  6. Gregory says:

    There are 8 months between the last USA WC qualifier and the World Cup. If JAB starts next season for a decent showing Bundesliga Hertha, he should get called into camp. (Keep in mind JK has the last call)

    Say a young MLS super star emerges next season, should he not make the World Cup roster because he didn’t play in any qualifiers?

    I know JAB is young, but it’s likely he will be the only American CB available playing in a elite league. That shouldn’t gift JAB a starting spot, but it should get him an invite to an USMNT camp to compete for the squad.

  7. Trevor says:

    Not saying it’s impossible, just improbable and a poor choice if it would happen.

    I think he could absolutely be called in for a camp, just saying that he’s running out of time to make any chance at putting up a fight for a WC roster spot – which already seems highly unlikely if he doesn’t start integrating.
