Bob Bradley has led Stabæk to a place in next year’s Europa League.  He spoke to Greg Seltzer about the season.  He is one of two American coaches to lead a team to next year’s Europa League.  One Norwegian publication also named him Tippeligaen Manager of the Year.

    Shout out to Eddie Johnson, our best striker of this generation after Dempsey. (Not counting Landon Donvoan as a striker)

    Check his EPL/Championship stats please, they are awful but he’s done the best since Dempsey.

    Wondo never went “overthere”, and has only scored 1 A squad goal his entire career.

  2. daniil says:

    dempsey not a striker
    altidore #1
    eddie #2
    should’ve been in brazil (and i love wondo. wouldnt have minded having them both).

    Thanks, I’m counting Eddie Johnson as the best his generation.

    Altidore grew up quick, Eddie Johnson is 5.5+ years older.

    Eddie Johnson was on the 2006 WC Squad. Beasley is the only player left from 2006 World Cup, keeping in mind Beasley was also in 2002.

    I think Bobby Convey finally done? He was solid EPL level player till his legs and ankles broke.

  4. daniil says:

    donovan’s first cap: 2000
    dempsey’s and eddie’s first caps: 2004
    altidore’s first cap: 2007

  5. daniil says:

    eddie’s usmnt caps: 2004-2014
    jozy’s: 2007-present

    7 of the 10 years that eddie played with the usmnt jozy was also there.
    id call that co-generational.
