A little bit of this and that
   July 19, 2011 (10:08 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

I posted some friendly results earlier today, but here are some links.

While we posted about Gale Agbossoumonde going back to Traffic Sports limbo land this past weekend, Brent Latham takes a look (ESPN Insider) at Traffic Sports’ impact in the US.

Brian Sciaretta caught up with Jerome Kiesewetter to talk about the upcoming Milk Cup and his background as another German-American in the US player pool.

Nate Weiss’ latest adventure in Sweden has him trialing at Örebro SK.

Fresh off his 22-minute debut on Monday, Oguchi Onyewu will be part of Sporting CP’s 25-man roster when they take on Juventus in Toronto on Saturday.

A report out of Germany has Schalke looking to get rid of Jermaine Jones and apparently a team in Russia is interested.

Back to some friendly results.  Sebastian Lletget played 74 minutes for West Ham United’s developmental team in a 2-0 victory over Gillingham.  And Jon-Paul Pittman scored a goal in Oxford United’s 3-1 victory over Seacoast United on Monday.  They ended their US preseason tour winning two games and drawing one match.

    Shay given signing for Villa is going to leave Guzan as the back-up. Does anyone see him going back to Hull City? or maybe a lesser Premier League club like a West Brom, Norwich, or QPR

    Man I hope so.

    Guzan to:

    West Brom – unlikely as I think Myhill will be given a shot at the starting job…if Guzan still needs a place in Jan. this would be a possibility (25%)

    Norwich – Not going to happen. Their keeper is young and helped Norwich get promoted. (0%)

    QPR – Not going to happen. They have a veteran keeper who was nails last year. (0%)

    The EPL is probably out for Guzan this year but there are a couple of clubs in the Championship that are in need of a keeper in the worst way…

    Leeds hasn’t said Guzan is on their short list, but if Dudek can’t be signed then I have to think that Guzan is on the list. (40%)

    Hull City is an obvious possibility because of the form he showed last year. Played 16 games and in that time improved their GAA from 1.25 to .88 and saw the team jump from 18th to 9th in the table. I’ve read where they are interested in trying to get him back on loan, but they don’t have the jack to buy him. (70%)

    AS Roma is a long shot and he would probably go there to be the back up but they have shown interest.

    Boro is a possibility although I haven’t heard anything. A team with that kind of history and cash shouldn’t be a midtable Championship team. They finished near the bottom of clean sheets last year in the championship but would have to sell a keeper. (25%)

    Guzan had 5 clean sheets in 16 games last year. Why he hasn’t been bought is beyond my understanding.

  4. Kyle says:

    Boaz Myhill has looked pretty, pretty shaky in between the posts against MLS bench warmers. I would love to see him go there.

  5. Thursby says:

    I am surprised Swansea hasn’t taken a run at him. They been unsuccessfully trying to pry Stockdale from Fulham. Guzan is every bit as good, if not better then him.

  6. Kyle says:

    I thought Swansea might of been a good fit as well but I saw they picked up an experienced goalie from Benfica a couple weeks ago. pretty sure Fulham wants to keep Stockdale long-term.
