A few links before the weekend

A couple links before Easter weekend.

Grant Wahl talked to Tim Ream earlier this week about his crazy first four months of 2012.  I always thought Ream had a good chance of playing time, but never expected him to jump right in there and routinely plug away 90 minutes.

Brian Straus recently caught up with the world’s hottest goal scorer:  Herculez Gomez.

The US will be playing Mexico at the Home Depot Center on April 15.  But this US team will feature USMNT legends such as Cobi Jones, Eric Wynalda and Alexi Lalas, while Mexico will feature Jorge Campos, Jared Borgetti and Luis Hernandez.  I might have to check this out.  Hopefully the scoreline will be 2-0.

Left back/winger Diego Chavarri has a found a new home in Peru with CD Cobresol of the Primera Division.

According to Greg Seltzer, Sacha Kljestan had some admirers in the stands of today’s 0-0 draw to Standard Liège.

And it looks like Andrew Wooten will be dressing with Kaiserslautern’s senior team this weekend against Hoffenheim.

I am going to be gone most of the weekend and away from the computer, so there won’t be a lot of highlights posted and I probably won’t be able to get to The OT Report until very late on Sunday night or until Monday. Enjoy the weekend.

    That US/Mexico game is going to be hilarious.

    Villareal and Twente eyeing Kljestan? Good for him if true!

    If Wooten doesn’t get more than 15 minutes and ‘Slautern goes ANOTHER game without a goal the manager should be fired before he gets to the clubhouse.

  2. Matt says:

    I just want Campos to be wearing some ridiculous goalie shirt.

  3. Trent Hill says:

    Id like to see Kljestan get in at Twente, Villareal, or Fulham. All good squads. Fulham is preferable for me.

    William–agreed about Wooten and the manager.

  4. Kyle says:

    Not saying he is the same class as Danny Murphy, but maybe they see Kljestan as a plug for him there since hes getting older. a center mid whos good at taking free kicks

  5. Award says:

    Yeah thats good to hear about Kljestan. He has been in good form for Anderlecht this season. I think his game will translate better to the Eredivisie than in the EPL.

    I agree it’s time Wooten saw at least an entire 45 mins on the field. Oh and Slautern has already fired their manager. This is an interim manager they have right now.

  6. mitch says:

    Sacha will never be a premier player on any US squad. He will not be involved heavily with any US squad(outside gold cup, I guess) in the future. Thats all… Hes essentially been the same player since he debuted in in his first youth world cup. he is an American that has height, decent touch/vision in the center of the park. We fellate him because this is still new to us. Get his subpar ass outta here

  7. Gregory says:

    Mitch I agree, if Sacha is starting for the USMT next World Cup, they will lose to Ghana.

  8. Andy says:

    Yeah he’s mediocre at best, and I’ve never liked him. Apparently playing well at Anderlecht, but he’s been horrible with the US almost every game he’s played. He was awful in the Gold Cup last Summer, and I just don’t think he has any leg up on Bradley, Williams, Jones, Torres, Edu, etc. in the middle of the park.

  9. William says:

    Mitch, I haven’t seen anyone laud Kljestan or plug him into a role on the 23 WC squad but it is nice to see Americans getting some love and moving to quality clubs in Europe. I agree that Kljestan is nothing more than an injury fill in and/or GC player, but he is still American.
