It’s almost the weekend, but here are a few things to check out.
First off, welcome Roderick MacNeil to the site. He is going to helping out now and bringing back The OT Report from the dead. He did a midweek edition last night. We are probably going to tweak the format around a little bit.
Tired of fitness-gate yet? If not, here are more quotes from Jurgen Klinsmann on it and his response to Alexi Lalas’ comments.
Want some photo galleries of the USMNT training this week? You are in luck here, here and here.
We posted the first rumored leak of the USMNT away jersey for 2015 back in December and another actual photo has leaked, so I updated the original post.
It is likely going to be a sellout, but the US-Mexico friendly in San Antonio has sold more than 50,000 tickets already with less than two months left.
Aron Johannsson scored the game’s lone goal in AZ Alkmaar’s 1-0 win over Ajax yesterday. Here is his goal in highlight form. Here is also a photo of him celebrating the goal. He had to be subbed out due to injury later in the game, but it looks to be a minor ankle injury.
John Brooks is going to have a new manager as Jos Luhukay was fired by Hertha Berlin. Brooks always seem to butt heads with Luhukay so maybe a new manager will be a nice change of pace.
Not surprising, but after possibly being “screwed over” by Rafa Marquez, A.J. Soares and his agent are scrambling to find a new home.
The Daily Mail (your first sign that it likely wasn’t true) had a report in January that Tim Howard was looking into a possible MLS move. Everton’s manager Roberto Martinez is expecting Howard to see out his contract at Everton and told the press that Howard is still his #1 keeper. Nothing to see here.
ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle talked to Tim Ream as he continues to put in solid efforts for Bolton.
Brian Sciaretta caught up with Heath Pearce to talk about his move to Sweden.
And finally, a rumor to keep you pondering over the weekend, Deporte Total USA (I have no clue how good/bad they are, so don’t kill me on this) is reporting that Junior Flores is headed to D.C. United on loan for the 2015 season.

Matt likes soccer. He likes sleeping in. He is also amused easily. That is pretty much it.
