Amazing.

That means the only losing game in which Americans saw the field in Europe was the one in which Freddy assisted Johnson?

Good week.

OT: There is a possibility, albeit a very remote one at this point, that I will be in North Africa (Tunisia and/or Morocco) at a time in June that may overlap the World Cup. Would English-language WC broadcasts be available from such a destination? Thanks.

I normally hate "fixed your post" but that one worked.

And you didn't even need to explain it to me.

Well, there's another name that merits mention here, despite being par of a Freiburg side that was thrashed by Bayer Leverkusen. I don't know his exact pedigree, but there's a 20 year old kid named Daniel Williams, who has moved up from the Freiburg 2 side to play with the big club in the Bundesliga 1. He made his second straight start this weekend. He's playing left back for Freiburg -- certainly a need position for the USA. As far as I can tell he has born in Germany -- in Karlsruhe, and was a youth system player. However, the internets seem convinced he has dual nationality. Perhaps like Jermaine Jones -- the son of a serviceman? Definitely should be approached by the USSF and the USMNT, if they haven't already done so.

How dare someone fix my comments!!!!! haha

Fischy, I too have been following the internet hoopla (word?). Anyways, he definitely should be approached. Though, would he want to come an play with USA? I just wonder if he identifies in any way as an American?

Good to see Bocanegra back to playing 90. What about Edu and Beas, though?

@grubbs -- He's already answered that -- it seems clear he'd pick Germany because he was raised there...feels connected to Germany. On the other hand, if he had a chance to play in the World Cup, I'm sure he'd consider his father's country. He could be a starter for the USA before the German federation would even think of calling him up.

Ralston to St. Louis today???

Then can I mention Rossi? ;)

No point, really -- coach was fired this weekend after losing to Osasuna.

Any body know the status of Jermain Jones? Is he fit yet? Is he playing anywhere now? Has he been in camp with the Americans at all? I lost track of him.
