Jurgen Klinsmann decided to use all four of his post-group stage roster swaps for the Gold Cup.  Looks like he wants to solidify that back with Matt Besler and Omar Gonzalez.  Ticket sales have increased to 43,000 for Sunday’s doubleheader according to Steven Goff.

Jon Arnold wrote another good interview for the site.  It was with Tony Taylor and talks about his move to Cyprus and playing in Europa League.  You should go read it so Jon will do more of these for the site.  Everyone wins!

The German Regionalliga has already started up and Julian Green scored two goals in a 4-2 win on Wednesday.  And someone decided to create a video of his preseason goals with Bayern Munich’s first team.

Diego Chavarri scored in his Iranian debut with Gostaresh Foolad on Wednesday.  And here is an interview that he did with Marca about being an American playing in Iran.

As I posted yesterday, Sebastian Lletget played well in West Ham’s friendly this week.  And here are some video highlights from the game.  He has one shot at the 4:40 mark and shows off some fancy footwork around the 5:50 mark.

I don’t think I posted this last week, but Danny Williams scored a goal in Reading’s friendly against Jon-Paul Pittman and Wycombe Wanderers.  Here is a photo of Williams from the game.

Tim Ream started at left back for Bolton in a preseason friendly against Rotherham United on Tuesday.

Who needs Jozy Altidore when you have Aron Johannsson?  Johannsson scored two goals and recorded an assist in AZ Alkmaar’s 3-0 win in a friendly against MVV.

Timothy Chandler is back from his knee injury and went 90 minutes in Nurnberg’s 3-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach in a friendly.

Here is a photo of Brad Friedel sporting Tottenham’s new goalkeeper kit from a recent friendly.

    Hopefully Seb will see first team action.

    It’s easy to see Julian Green being a USMNT starter in a few years.

  2. 2tone says:

    Personally I think Cameron will play CM for Stoke.

  3. Kyle #2 says:

    I have been wondering about Green’s nationality and did a quick search. If anyone else is interested here is a short article that sums it up:

    Looks like he has already had some playing time with German youth teams and the US has inquired about him but never called him up.

    If anyone knows anything else please share.

  4. Gregory says:

    Cap the Icelandic warrior. He can replace the void Charlie Davies left.

  5. Trent Hill says:

    Agreed, we need to be going after Shawn Parker and Aron Johansson pretty hard. Would also like to see us going after Thomas Delaney, Julian Green, JA Brooks, and a few others.

    As long as iceland is in contention in WCQ, I don’t think we’re going to get johansson.

    JA Brooks I think is the #1 priority on the dual nationals front.
