Saturday: Bye Bye Luhukay, Helloooo Mikey B

October 18, 2008

Bundesliga

BOCHUM 2 BMG 2

Michael Bradley went 90 minutes in today’s 2-2 draw between BMG and Bochum and he looked alright!  He was guilty of some suspect marking in the 50th minute on Bochum’s first goal, as you can see below:

Cmon little Mike!

C'mon little Mike!

In any case, thank god he’s getting some minutes, and hopefully this is a sign of his new role at BMG.  Interestingly enough, he played pretty high up the pitch in today’s game, almost immediately behind the striker Rob Friend.  For a player who calls himself “most comfortable with a defensive midfield role” I wonder what Bradley thinks about his position today.

Serie B

BRESCIA 3 TRIESTINA 2

Danny Szetela came on in the second half and scored the gamewinner for Brescia in the 88th minute.  I’m foraging for highlights and as soon as I can find them I’ll post.  But great news for Danny as he continues to make his place in the squad at Brescia.

Premier League

FULHAM 0 SUNDERLAND 0

Dempsey came on in the 73rd minute as Fulham were held to a scoreless draw against Sunderland.  Clint was involved in some nice passing sequences after coming on, but Fulham never truly threatened the goal.  Sunderland will be most dissapointed with the draw after having a goal disallowed in the second half.

check back later on today and see if Jozy makes the bench for Villarreal and if Adu can get in the game against Nice for Monaco.

US Roster For TnT: If Rolfe Plays, I’ll Kill Myself

October 15, 2008

GOALKEEPERS

Brad Guzan, Troy Perkins

DEFENDERS

Jonathan Bornstein, Danny Califf, Frankie Hejduk, Michael Orozco, Heath Pearce, Marvell Wynne

MIDFIELDERS

Freddy Adu, DaMarcus Beasley, Brian Carroll, Maurice Edu, Sacha Kljestan, Danny Szetela, José Francisco Torres

FORWARDS

Jozy Altidore, Charlie Davies, Chris Rolfe

So who’s gonna start? This is a fun roster because of all the youth, but it’s also a risky roster. I think we’ll see this:

Guzan

Pearce, Califf, Edu, Hejduk

Beasley (c), Kljestan, Torres, Szetela

Altidore, Adu

It’s also possible that Orozco starts as a CB with Califf and that could push Edu into central midfield with Kljestan.  If that’s the case, who goes to the bench? Szetela or Torres? I think Szetela would get the nod in that scenario and Torres would move to the bench, but who knows.  As for Adu, you COULD make the argument that Davies will start over him, but I think that Adu will play as a withdrawn striker in what will probably look like a 4-5-1.

Check back later tonight and I’ll be live blogging the game! Huzzah.
