It is looking more and more like FC Dallas’ George John will be headed to Blackburn. Since he is a Greek citizen, he just needs a Greek passport to be registered as a EU player and avoid the whole “he needs to have played in x% of USMNT games over the last two years” rule to get a work permit.
While he did appear in Europa League last week for Rangers, Carlos Bocanegra (and Alejandro Bedoya) did not play this past weekend in Rangers’ Scottish Premier League game since he hadn’t received his work visa yet . . . until today.
Mikkel Diskerud did an interview with some local Norwegian press where he talks about hoping Jurgen Klinsmann calls him in at some point and moving to a more central midfield role with Stabæk.
Speaking of Klinsi, Matthew from The Shin Guardian takes a stab at the USMNT roster for the upcoming friendlies.
And finally, it is not often we have highlights from the English Conference National (the fifth tier of English soccer), but here is Euan Holden’s goal for Stockport County against Kettering Town from last week.
