What is going on with Hahnemann? This is the second week that he hasn't been even on the bench. Is he hurt or in the doghouse?

Has Jozy started his loan at Xerez yet?

Hahnemann has been out for a couple of months. Injured his calf and is back in training but not fully fit.

Jozy will play for Xerez in a friendly against a 4th division German team tomorrow.

Dempsey had the assist on Fulham's first goal to Andrew Johnson

Decent showing from the American players this weekend.

Jozy only joined on Friday, so it was unlikely that he would be playing two days later. So, no problem there for me.

Also, I read somewhere else, that Torres already knows that he is being called up for the game against Mexico.

I like the sound of that. Can't see him starting, but sounds like another high profile match to get into for the Gringo!

Don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but it appears that Lyle Adams' trial at SC Altach in Austria has ended without an offer, and he has moved on to FC Schaffhausen of the Swiss Challenge (2nd tier) Division. He played a full 90 minutes in a 4-2 friendly loss to Luzern of the Swiss First Division on Sunday. Apparently he did well, as the quote from the Schaffhausen web site translated as "Test player Lyle Adam left a good impression: “A good soccer player with strengths within the athletic range, which one can use versatile. Interest in it is surely present.” Also, "The FCS responsible persons would like to see, how the US-Boy integrates itself in the crew structure. “On next Friday we will build up and decide, like it with it continue ourselves”, said the coach yesterday."

My German stinks, and I don't like the free translators I found, so if anyone else wants to take a swing at this:

Still, it looks like he's not out of Euro options yet...
