Catching up on Tuesday
   December 20, 2011 (11:24 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Finally made it to my parents after a day at the airport.  Now they are asleep and I am stuck on West Coast time, although it allowed me to catch up on all the news and notes from the day.

Howie just posted about Brian Span heading to Sweden.  With the MLS SuperDraft coming up, it is that time of year where a bunch of newer guys will start to pop up in smaller leagues across Europe.

A few guys saw the field on Tuesday.  Zak Whitbread went the full 90 minutes in Norwich City’s 2-2 draw to Wolves.  It is nice to see him logging these minutes again.  In the DFB Pokal, Timothy Chandler went the full 90 minutes in Nurnberg’s 1-0 loss to Greuther Fürth.  And Fabian Johnson (90 minutes) and Danny Williams (seven minutes) both played in Hoffenheim’s 2-1 victory over Augsburg.

Amobi Okugo recently told Brent Latham that his training stint at Freiburg could turn out to be something more than just a training stint.

The US Soccer YNT blog has a bunch a little things up on the U-23 camp.

SI’s Steve Davis spoke to Jurgen Klinsmann about Klinsi’s desire for the US players to train year round.

One of those players following that plan is Landon Donovan.  Mark Lawrenson of the Liverpool Daily Post gives his thoughts on the move.  And Everton manager David Moyes spoke to about Donovan.

Some of you might have already saw Tony Taylor’s goal from this past weekend.  Now here is your chance to meet his teammate and Atletico CP’s starting goalkeeper Caleb Patterson-Sewell.

Now for some fun rumorville time with the January transfer window quickly approaching us.  First up is Robbie Rogers to Leeds, while the second name of the day is Eddie Johnson to Puebla.

    I wish Leeds would purchase an American or two. I love Leeds and hope they make it back to the Prem after this year. They still can’t keep goals out of their net but can certainly score them…which is why I am a bit puzzled at the Rogers interest.

    The signing would be a welcomed site as anyone would want to see a club of their liking sign a player from their homeland.

    I am still hoping for a Guzan, Gonzo, John, Goodson, etc. signing to help with the lack of defensive prowess

  2. Andy says:

    @William or Lichaj when he gets healthy

  3. William says:

    Oh yes Andy but it would probably have to be next August. Of course Warnock is getting up there in age so we”ll see. I still think Villa likes Lichaj enough to eventually start him at one of the fullback positions.

    All that said I would love to see Leeds buy Lichaj, in fact I wish they had the funds to do it last summer.
