Quick fire links
   July 6, 2011 (11:32 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

It’s late and I am tired, so here are a bunch of links in rapid fire sentences (fun for everyone!).

It doesn’t look like Blackburn Rovers can afford Schalke’s asking price of £10 million for Jermaine Jones.

Brad Rusin of the USL’s Carolina RailHawks is headed to the Danish Superliga to play for HB Køge with a new multi-year contract.

Brian Sciaretta makes an early guess at the 2012 US Olympic team.  I think the forward pool is sneaky good for this team.

Leeds United manager Simon Grayson wouldn’t mind bringing Eric Lichaj back to Elland Road.

This Danish report claims that Charlie Davies is on Brøndby’s wishlist.

According to Sky Sports, it looks like Villarreal offered to throw Jozy Altidore into a deal for Udinese central defender Cristian Zapata, but the Italians declined and just took money.

Greg Seltzer talked to Gale Agbossoumonde to talk about his current situation at Djurgårdens IF.

DaMarcus Beasley scored a goal in Puebla’s 1-0 victory over Monterrey in a preseason tournament.

Kamani Hill and Vitoria Guimarães have agreed to terms to buyout the last year of his contract.

And finally, this one is going to be a little be longer than a sentence.  Most of you are probably aware of Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story.  You are also probably aware they on Kickstarter trying to get the final funding so the movie can be released to the public.  That said, they are in the final stretch (11 days left) and they still need some help, so go pledge some money if you have anything extra laying around.  It is a great story and the guys making the movie are some good dudes (yes, I said dudes).

    I think the forward pool is over-rated. They’re all a bunch of hyped players that have yet to prove they can score goals consistently. I think Sapong should be included in this team. Time to try something new.

    The midfielders, on the other hand, I’m excited to see play together. Gatt, Shea, Adu, Diskerud, Okugo, Gyau and perhaps Chandler moving up to the wing.

  2. Ufficio says:

    Sapong as an ’88 would count as one of the overage players. This explains why Sciaretta didn’t mention him.

  3. ussoccerdudes says:

    Shea is the overrated one, every time I see him play, he has poor positional sense. The last time I saw at CB, was when he go the red card, also, why in the world does everyone forget about Zahavi as a LW, Shea isnt good enough, even he said it himself that he isnt up to the international level. If he is going to develop, stop hyping him.

    How soon is Darlington Nagbe getting his citizenship?

  5. Ufficio says:

    Nagbe received a P-1 visa shortly before the season started, which means he’s not even a green card holder (or at least wasn’t six months ago). No idea what his status is vis-a-vis the green card, but unless he marries a US citizen he’s looking at least a five year wait from the point when he acquires the green card.

    In other words, I wouldn’t hold out much hope for Nagbe for this cycle, at least.

  6. Steve Trittschuh says:

    I think Shea is having a very strong season and it’d be a huge mistake to not include him in the upcoming friendlies. One of the top goalscorers in the MLS, and from a midfield position nonetheless. In my opinion, he’s definitely in the conversation for MLS best XI if not MVP.
