Another name I didn’t see this weekend while doing The OT Report was Jozy Altidore. I thought maybe the new manager was trying to shake things up in his first game at Hull City, but it turns out that Jozy is another American who caught the recent hamstring bug.
Two journalists had Clint Dempsey articles today. One in the New York Times. And one in the Observer (UK). Apparently people took notice of his monster goal against Juventus last week. It still gives me chills when I watch it.
Yanks Abroad continues its great coverage of the various Scandinavian leagues with an article on IK Start’s Hunter Freeman. Freeman has formed a nice defensive partnership with fellow American Clarence Goodson.
And another US U-20 making an appearance on the bench this past weekend. Much like Gale Abossoumonde a couple weeks ago with Sporting Braga, Jared Jeffrey appeared on the bench for the first time with German side Mainz.
