A couple things for your Friday morning reading pleasure.
The US roster for January’s camp got delayed yesterday and should be announced later today. South Korea has released its roster for its friendly against Mexico on January 29, so this is probably what the US will face on February 1. I don’t follow them that much so I have no clue on the strength of this roster.
It looks like Jermaine Jones is having a falling out at Schalke and wants out of the club. He is not traveling with the team to Qatar as they prepare for the second half of the Bundesliga, so maybe we will see him at the US camp?
In case you missed it from yesterday, here are some highlights of Brek Shea’s debut with Barnsley.
Junior Flores has declined to participate with the US U-20 team during its camp in January, but before everyone freaks out, it is because he is getting the chance to train with Borussia Dortmund’s reserves/U-23 team in Turkey. Not bad for a 17-year-old.
For those few crazy people still believing in a Michael Bradley-to-Fulham transfer, Greg Seltzer says no dice to that or any move for Mikey.
Juan Agudelo likes teasing everyone about a potential move to a new club.
As for Agudelo’s former teammate in New England, Charlie Davies, his contract with the Danish side Randers was terminated so he can sign a new contract with the Revolution. Everyone’s favorite Stanky Legg appeared in 23 games for Randers before going on loan to New England last August.
Getting back to the US U-20 camp for January, a bunch of names have appeared on Twitter as attending the camp, including Freiburg U-19 midfielder Eric Lickert, but nothing official has been released to my knowledge.
Honduras’ favorite left back Jonathan Bornstein hopes his move to Atlante will get him back in the US picture.
Andrew Stadler has switched teams within Sweden. After scoring seven goals for Sandvikens IF in the Division 1 Norra (third tier) last season, he has signed a two-year contract with Landskrona BoIS in the Superettan (second tier). I believe Stadler and fellow American Paul Torres trialed with Landskrona back in November.
About 20 minutes after I posted this, I realized that Stabæk were having their press conference for Bob Bradley so I stayed up for it.
Sounds like Stabæk were a little overwhelmed by how much Twitter blew up in the last 24 hours over this news. And Bob talked about how he knew of Stabæk through following/scouting Clarence Goodson, Hunter Freeman, Troy Perkins and Mix Diskerud in Norway.
Here are a couple screengrabs I took of the presser off my computer.
