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.
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 MLSsoccer.com about Donovan.
