An article about Mike Sherman, who's now a high school coach at a Cape Cod school. It doesn't sound as if he thinks he's found his place or is really happy to be there, but he might be where he should be. Click here.
Eddie goes wild on the Niners, well over 100 yards and two TDs, one on a screen pass. Matthews three sacks and a forced fumble, one defensive TD, Rodgers makes the Monday night game look like a PFF failure, Pack up 20-3 at the half, and walk to it 37-17. Niner faithful imitate the Falcons fans after halftime and rush home to make a good latte.
Steffen impressed the hell out of me at the U-20 WC...supposedly Horvath has been even more impressive.
DEFENDERS (5): Cameron Carter-Vickers (Tottenham Hotspur; Westcliff on Sea,England), Matt Miazga (New York Red Bulls; Clifton, N.J.), Eric Miller (Montreal Impact; Woodbury, Minn.), William Packwood (Unattached; Concord, Mass.), Dillon Serna (Colorado Rapids; Brighton, Colo.)
Carter-Vickers and Miazga are the straws that stir this drink. Both have shown flashes they are the future of the USMNT backline.
MIDFIELDERS (8): Fatai Alashe (San Jose Earthquakes; Northville, Mich.), Gboly Ariyibi (Chesterfield; Arlington, Va.), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake; Garden Grove, Calif.), Emerson Hyndman (Fulham; Dallas, Texas), Marc Pelosi (San Jose Earthquakes; Sunnyvale, Calif.), Matt Polster (Chicago Fire; Milwaukee, Wis.), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC; Gahanna, Ohio), Gedion Zelalem (Rangers; Bethesda, Md.).
This is a very young and inexperienced MF...Ariyibi, Hyndman and Zelalem are the most gifted...but outside of Hyndman, the other two are sorely lacking in international competition experience.
FORWARDS (4): Alonso Hernandez (C.D. Juarez; El Paso, Texas), Jerome Kiesewetter (VfB Stuttgart; Berlin, Germany), Jordan Morris (Stanford; Mercer Island, Wash.), Maki Tall (FC Sion; Washington, D.C.)
Maki Tall was a force at the U-20 till he got hurt. And Jordan Morris I think could make a case to start in a 4-4-2 on the USMNT. I have a feeling 2016 in Rio will be his coming out party for the big club. I am interested to see if Kiesewetter actually has skills, or if he's another Klinsmann project because he's a German national...much like Julian Green appeared to be. And speaking of...that he did not make this squad is a huge indictment of his talent, and really underscores the question, why was he on the 2014 WC squad? I mean, yeah, the Bundesliga is big cheese, but he's on basically their equivalent of Single-A baseball (4th division).
