Random links for Tuesday

If you haven’t noticed yet, we have one new addition to the site.  You can now take a look at the various jerseys worn by the USMNT throughout the years.  Some of those older photos are pretty cool.  Also, we are going to relaunch our Top 5 Lists series this week.  Howie has one that should be up later today or tomorrow and we will have other guest writers contributing to the series over the next few weeks.

I know there was some confusion about what channel/time for Friday’s qualifier against Jamaica, but it looks like it was finalized for 6:30 PM Eastern on ESPN, WatchESPN, UniMas.

ESPN’s Alex Labidou has a story up on Mix Diskerud.  It also provides us this great stat.

He has never lost during his time as a senior U.S. national (his record in 11 caps is is 10-1-0) and hopes he can help lead the team to wins against Jamaica and Panama.

Even though most of his caps came in the latest not-as-strong Gold Cup, not too shabby.

While the US has continued to “win” the recent battles over dual-national players, Steven Beitashour has decided to play for Iran.

Want a video of Matt Besler making a 50-yard field goal?  Here you go.

Here is a transcript of Michael Bradley’s recent appearance on the BBC’s World Football podcast.  Not shocking, he is proud of his dad (and his mom).

As we posted sometime last week (at least the rumor), it looks like Jozy Altidore’s next manager at Sunderland will be Gus Poyet.  And right after I do this post, Sunderland has confirmed it.

Brek Shea and Maurice Edu put in another shift with Stoke City’s U-21 team in a 2-1 loss to Leicester City’s U-21 team on Monday.  Shea picked up an assist on Stoke City’s lone goal.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with US U-18 midfielder Kyle Scott to talk about life with Chelsea and his game.

And finally, this was brought to my attention yesterday and I thought I would pass it along as I am a fan of a few of these.  Mark Yesilevskiy, the guy that runs Lion Of Vienna Suite, has some pretty cool soccer prints for sale.

    Kyle Scott is eligible for US, England, and Ireland. That’s going to be quite a battle. Each team is a top 30 team generally (though Ireland has fallen recently). His brother too, I imagine.

    Beitashour isnt a big loss–I’m glad he chose to represent Iran, who he’ll play for, rather than making 3 Camp Cupcake appearances for the USA in his whole career.

    Mix’s record is pretty crazy. Hoping to see him and Bedoya in the middle in these last couple games.

    If beitashour had never gotten injured he might be starting at right-back for us. *might*. Brad evans isn’t a big jump from there. The second iran qualified, I was afraid of this, but yeah in our itiration of reality not a big loss.

    A mix bedoya pairing would be awesome. Mix has looked great for us at CM, and bedoya has been logging 90s at CM for nantes.

    The Reggae Boyz are always dangerous.

    They have 9 Championship players in the Camp and 1 EPL. They might be in last place, but they can field a decent squad.

    O’Brain Woodbine, who Zusi abused last game was left off the roster.
