Some news and nuggets to start your day.
* While it was reported earlier this week that Stuart Holden played another game with Bolton’s reserve squad, here are some more quotes by Holden in the Bolton News.
* On-loan defender Gale Agbossoumonde came off the bench and played 13 minutes in a recent test match for Eintracht Frankfurt.
* It looks like Bob Bradley is Egypt’s top choice for their head coaching job as they wait for an answer from him.
* According to an interview with Ridge Mahoney, Carlos Bocanegra was named captain by Saint-Etienne before his transfer to Rangers, which surprised the French club.
* Nick Leyden has an interview up at Yanks Abroad with American-Australian goalkeeper Caleb Patterson-Sewell. The 24-year-old keeper made the move this summer to Atlético CP, the same club that Tony Taylor is currently on loan with.
* Terrence Boyd has scored six goals so far for Borussia Dortmund II this season. For those scoring at home, that is tied for the most in the Regionalliga West with Schalke II’s Andreas Wiegel.
* Brian Sciaretta gives us his progress report of the USMNT so far in the Jurgern Klinsmann era. I do agree with him that we, as fans, shouldn’t care as much about results at this point as Klinsmann is still feeling his way through the player pool. Now, if the US starts losing/drawing a bunch during the beginning of next summer’s qualifying, then maybe we should start to worry.
