Monday afternoon links

Some random stuff from around the web.

After parting ways with IFK Mariehamn in Finland last week, Josh Wicks is now with Syrianska in Sweden according to Steven Goff.  Syrianska finished 14th out of the 16-team Allsvenskan last season, but avoided relegation by defeating Matt Pyzdrowski’s and Lester Dewee’s Ängelholm FF in the relegation playoffs.

Robbie Rogers tweeted some good news this morning.

Cleared by the Doc. Finally! Getting after it!

It is D-Day for Rangers today as eight players are expected to be released since the team can’t afford them anymore since going under administration.  Possible names include Alejandro Bedoya and Carlos Bocanegra.

It looks like US U-20 defender Will Packwood has a chance to make his first team debut with Birmingham City as they take on Chelsea in the FA Cup tomorrow.  He will likely start the game on the bench, but not a bad way to make your debut if he does end up playing.

Finally, US U-20 leftback Sean Cunningham is being sent out on loan to Norwegian club Stabaek.   Cunningham mainly played in reserve games for Molde FK last season, but with Stabaek having financial problems and forcing out a lot of players (Mix Diskerud being sent out on loan to Gent), there should be playing time to be had by Cunningham.  Cunningham will also join Ricardo Clark on the team.

    If they are released would that mean mls for Bocanegra and bedoya? Wouldn’t mind seeing either in the states, especially with the revolution’s allocation order 🙂

    I dont think they could join other european teams unless it was some kind of emergency loan

  3. Award says:

    Orebo wants Bedoya back. I have a feeling you will see Boca in MLS again soon. Bedoya will have some options. And Edu will be heading out in the summer.

    I could be wrong but I think if they are released they could join other European teams immediately as it would be more of a free agent signing and not a transfer.

  6. Trent Hill says:

    Surely Bedoya is on fairly small wages–seems pointless to cut him.

    Andrew is correct about the issue of which teams could take him. Regardless, I believe the Scandinavian leagues’ transfer windows are open–and it only matters where you’re going, not where you’re coming from.

    It would mean that Boca’s career as a guaranteed national team starter was coming to a close, I’d think. Bedoya looked pretty solid in the couple times we saw him in a USMNT shirt, but I don’t know if he has what it takes to break into our deepest position.
