Milan said they were resting Onyewu so he would be fresh for the USMNT friendlies...

I hope Jozy keeps working at Villarreal. He clearly is doing something right because he earned a roster spot this summer. He also has looked bright in Europa League games. I think with patients Jozy could make an impact at Villarreal. Also, the Spanish Cup starts soon, I would imagine he will see action in that too.

OT: Some VERY good news from Our Satirist of the Highways:

Beckham with a great goal.

You put Clint w/ the midfielders, but he played forward this weekend. Nice comments from Mark Hughes (via Fulham's web site):

Before heading back across the Capital to SW6 on Saturday evening Hughes praised his all-American attack of Eddie Johnson and Clint Dempsey for their endeavour and purpose at Upton Park on Saturday.

“Clint got a nasty crack and he wasn’t too happy at the time," said Hughes. "It’s a little bit sore at the moment but credit to him because a bang like that could have knocked him out of the game - he did his part for the Team and produced today.

“It was Eddie’s [Johnson] first start and he had a positive impact on the game so I’m pleased for him.”

MrCerniglia... You are right though mls does a great job helping our young players get better. Also, Brek Shea looked good last night.

Posted by: grubbsbl | October 3, 2010 9:00 PM | Report abuse

Whoops - but then Fulham's match stats have Eddie as the loan forward. Hmm...

Posted by: glfrazier | October 3, 2010 9:02 PM | Report abuse

Why does Freddy Adu never make it into games for Aris? It seems strange for a team to keep a player they never use.

Red card for Jermaine Jones? We gotta cap this guy...he's gonna fit right in with our midfield.

Posted by: fischy | October 3, 2010 10:30 PM | Report abuse

He's not a loan forward. Fulham owns his contract.

Posted by: fischy | October 3, 2010 10:32 PM | Report abuse

Nigel de Jong is really collecting scalps, or broken legs. Add Hatem ben Arfa to his list, which includes Stuart Holden. This guy may be the dirtiest player in the game, but he somehow gets away with it. Not even a card

I think he meant lone forward... Dempsey usually plays "in the hole" for Fulham under Mark Hughes. Though, I missed this weekend's game.

I thought EJ had a very strong game for Fulham and it's refreshing to see him on the field as opposed to his usual position of "sidelined with injury," although once Zamora comes back I’m not sure how much time he is going to get unless he starts producing some goals. It’s good to see Bradley giving him another chance with the US squad now that he is getting back to form.

So Villareal needs a host of injuries before Jozy consistently cracks the starting 11?

EJ had a great game and he seems to be getting more and more playing time at the expense of Gera, but not sure why. West Ham came out to play rough, and they did. The welt on the side of Dempsey's head is testament to that, and Clint was their main target for fouls, going down several times. EJ wasn't afriad to stick his head and feet in anywhere, and drew what should have been a PK late in the first half. A tough point for one of only 2 undefeated teams in the Premiership. Unfortunately, 1-6-0 only gets you 10th place.

Maybe Jozy has some sports medicine training. He certainly won't make an impact on the pitch, unless he falls down...which he does a lot.

Freddy Adu needs to come back to's just not happening for him in Europe.
