These were supposed to be the Friday morning links

But that whole manhunt sort of got in the way.

Greg Seltzer talked to Bob Bradley this week about the chaos of coaching in Egypt.

US Soccer President Sunil Gulati was elected to the FIFA executive committee, beating out Mexican Football President Justino Campeon by one vote.  He will be taking over Chuck Blazer’s old spot.

Freddy Adu has made at least made Bahia’s gameday roster for this weekend’s game.  Adu was also on the BBC’s Football Focus this week.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Stuart Holden this week to talk about his comeback.  Sheffield Wednesday’s manager Dave Jones also wants to extend Holden’s loan.

While there is a lot of speculation that Jozy Altidore will be sold to a bigger club this summer, Earnie Stewart claims that AZ want to keep Altidore and build around him for next season.

A new American youngster to keep an eye on down in Mexico, Alonso Hernandez, made his debut with Monterrey tonight.

I got a message from Daniel Stevens this week telling me that he is not longer at Kemi Kings in Finland, but he is now at Finnish side BK-46.  They just won their fifth round game in the Suomen Cup.

    Hoping that the Ernie Stewart comment is nothing more than posturing to try to negotiate a better deal for Jozy.

    I think Jozy has said he’d be content with another year in Holland but I’d like to see him get a solid year of top flight football before the world cup.

  2. Trent Hill says:

    Yeah, him moving would be good. Mid-table EPL, high level French team, mid-table German team, or a mid/high level Italian team would be good. Could see him thriving in Russia too, although it’s freakin’ cold there.

  3. daniil says:

    Impossible to tell where jozy will end up. Im not sure he’s quite ready for the premiership yet. I wouldn’t mind seeing him go another year in holland and then go to the EPL, just cause he’s thrived at alkmaar and he’s still very young so its good for him to get some stability and a little bit of longevity with one club.

  4. Kyle says:

    Is this Bradley Johnson of Norwich worth a look from Klinsmann? He was in that Freddy Adu video talking about playing for the USA.

  5. 2tone says:

    Alonso Hernandes was pretty good in his debut. You can tell he has talent. Hopefully Ramos will be in contact with him.

  6. ussoccerdudes says:

    @kyle He’s not eligible. He thought he was cause his grandmother is American. But in eligibility doesnt pass from grandparents when it comes to the US. That only applies to European countries.

  7. Gregory says:

    I would love for Jozy to move to the EPL or Bundesliga, but he is fine in the Dutch League. He is scoring and getting playing time in a nice league. I don’t think moving to a better league will help his development or make him a better player for the USMNT. A move could cut his playing time or reveal that he still is something of a head-case.

    I think the Dutch league is the complete opposite of the MLS in terms of development. Altidore’s skills and technique are growing. Of course I would like to see Altidore transfer to a better league, but that comes with risk. Any Dutch team would almost be a perfect fit for a USMNT striker, if the team is Europa or CPL bound.
