Even more linkage for Friday
   November 4, 2011 (4:47 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Of course after I post a bunch of links this morning, a bunch of other interesting stuff broke across the interwebs.

Included in that link post from earlier today, Brent Latham thought we didn’t have to worry about losing Fabian Hurzeler to Germany even though he wasn’t called into the U-23/U-20 camp.  Then it comes out this afternoon that he has been called into a camp for Germany’s U-19 team.  Before people get all annoyed that we have “lost him”, remember that he hasn’t filed his FIFA switch yet, so he was still Germany’s “property” to begin with.  Plus, he can always switch further down the line.

Speaking of that U-23/U-20 camp, as expected, Caleb Porter has called in four more MLS players from recently eliminated playoff teams, which include Juan Agudelo, Jack McInerney, Amobi Okugo and Sheanon Williams.

U-20 head coach Tab Ramos recently told (Latino version) that the US plans to play a 4-3-3 among all the teams (i.e. MNT, U-23, U-20, etc.).  That said, it all depends on what players you have, so if you don’t have the players for a 4-3-3, you probably won’t see a 4-3-3.

And finally, Brian Sciaretta just tweeted that Celtic goalkeeper Dominic Cervi will be going out on loan to Greenock Morton FC of the Scottish First Division.  Hopefully this loan goes better than his loan last season to First Division side Dundee where he just sat on the bench for a month before returning to Celtic.  Cervi hasn’t appeared in a league game between Celtic or Dundee since making the move to Scotland during the 2008-09 season.

As for Greenock Morton FC, they currently sit in sixth place out of the ten-team First Division.  According to the link from Sciaretta, Cervi is expected to to make an immediate debut against Ayr United tomorrow.

    Glad to see Cervi making a move–I just wish it were to a Prem division team where he’d play. Regardless, getting playing time is important.

  2. Josy Wales says:

    Not calling in Huertzler but calling in Jack McInnerny was an incredibly stupid move. McInnerny had a terrible season in the MLS for the Philadelphia Union . He scored only one goal all season compared with 3 or 4 goals the previous season.
