Two things for Thursday
   January 12, 2012 (5:21 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

There is basically two main things for day (aside from the MLS SuperDraft).

1) All reports out of England have George John finalizing a short-term loan deal to West Ham United with the Hammers having an option to buy at the end of it.  There is nothing official on West Ham’s site, but manager Sam Allardyce has some words on John.

Allardyce said: “He’s a good defender, of the right stature and the right ability and the right ambition who sees his future in this country.

“He wants to be challenged, wants to improve and his dream is to come and play here. Hopefully we will give him the platform he needs to fulfil those dreams.”

Allardyce added: “When it does get clinched we’ll need to settle him in for a while.”

2) The USMNT will be hosting Brazil in May (either May 20 or 21) in a friendly according to the Brazilian federation rumored to be played in Foxborough or D.C.  The friendly would fall during a FIFA international break meaning close to full rosters by both teams.

As always, Brazil provides a tough test for the US, and as we learned from Steven Goff in December, a home friendly against a Brazil or Mexico in a big stadium brings in a lot of money for US Soccer, which US Soccer needs to function.

    Really nice move for John. I think he’ll do well in the Championship.

  2. Andrew says:

    Plus they are going to push for promotion so hopefully next year he is playing in the Premier league.

  3. Cam says:

    next year tim ream might be in the championship (if he completes his move to bolton) and george john might be in the premier league

    @Cam The better player would be in a higher division, makes sense
