A bunch of links for Monday
   February 21, 2011 (10:16 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Lets start off the links with some injury updates.

While it looked like Jozy Altidore was pulled from Saturday’s game with an ankle injury, the club is saying that Jozy was sick and worn out, but the team’s spokesperson thinks Jozy should be good to go for Bursaspor’s next game.

German club Mainz 05 has two Americans on their roster, Preston Zimmerman and Jared Jeffrey, but I haven’t seen Jeffrey’s name in the game recaps for the reserve squad the last couple months and now we know why.  The club was finally able to figure out what is wrong with him and he is set to have a hernia operation this week.  Looks like he will return sometime around mid-April if all goes well.

The New York Times has two things worth checking out.  First off is an article on Jonathan Spector.  And John Godfrey looks at the midfield depth for the USMNT.

The US U-17 team takes on El Salvador tomorrow in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship.  The game will be at 3 PM Eastern and you can watch live on  The winner of this match earns a spot in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup.  US Soccer has an official game preview up on their site, plus the U-17 blog has some other goodies and videos to check out.

Former St Patrick’s Athletic winger Ryan Guy apparently picked up an injury during his trial with the Portland Timbers, but he is healthy again and will now be trialing with Chivas USA.

And finally, some bad news for Anton Peterlin and Plymouth Argyle fans.  The English League One side were in 18th place and two points above the relegation zone after this weekend, but the club’s owners have filed for bankruptcy protection.  What does this mean?  League rules state that the club will be deducted 10 points, dropping them to last place and five points below Dagenham & Redbridge (the team that was in last place).  Fighting off relegation just became a lot harder.

    Peterlin’s dream story hasn’t really panned out. I’m assuming this is more or less a case of water seeking its own level, but I still say he needs to find his way to Salt Lake City so that OverHere can post updates about the two together again.

  2. Matt says:

    You miss posting about Arnoux and Peterlin, don’t you?

  3. Steve Trittschuh says:

    Looks like Arnoux could make his debut tonight in the CONCACAF Champions League. I’m actually excited about seeing him play.

  4. Howie says:

    Arnoux winds up being left out of the 18 as 9-man Salt Lake plays 10-man Columbus to a scoreless draw.
