FlyDoctor, I do agree 100% on the Brek Shea rumors.
If he does go to Stoke, seems like he will struggle for playing time....doesn't he normally play left wing??
Matthew Etherington, Stoke's left mid/wing, will be hard to displace for a starting role.

Then again, this one could just be a rumor, as the official release just said he was invited to train with them (& his buddy Geoff Cameron).

I don't want Shea going to Stoke because I hate their style of Football. I should probably like them more because they have more Americans than any Premier league squad, I would much rather him go to Everton or Fulham since they play football in a more respectable manner.

Jeez, is Stoke becoming Americans' home away from home? Pretty soon they'll be to EPL what Chivas USA is to MLS

Geoff Cameron is the only US player currently on the squad...as far as I know.
Maurice Edu moved to Turkey or some place like that, due to lack of playing time.

I hate Stoke with a passion ever since their fans booed Aaron Ramsey when he came on the field after recovering from the leg break.
Most absurd thing I have ever witnessed by sporting fans.

Hmm... yeah that's pretty messed up. When Steve Zakuani came back this season the entire league celebrated his recovery from a pretty gnarly leg break.

Edu is on loan, he's not sold.

Actually Aston Villa has 2 as well, Guzan is really solid (well certainly compared to Given) and Lichaj gets some playing time but isn't a starter. I wish Lichaj would get more time under Klinsmann I'm really impressed with his ability to attack, I think he could be a long term replacement for Cherundolo, or at least provide some depth. Also will be fun to see Bradley move to the premier league, that seems to be where he's destined to go based on his style. He's doing great in Roma, but his style of play fits the BPL or Bundesliga much more. They're much more industrial leagues while Serie A is more of pass and show league. Also hope that Jozy leaves AZ, not that he's doing poorly or I dislike the opportunity he's getting but I hate what they've done to his national team chances.

Read an interesting article on espn today about how the Michael Bradley style of industrial midfielder has become more prominent in serie a.

Read that same article, what I got from it was basically saying that Real Madrid and Barca Adopting a more Italian Style of play has hurt a lot and some English squads as well (like Man City)

meh, the little **** was deliberately going slow and then laid on top of the ball to keep it out of play.

EDIT: Apparently this was a tweet of his before the game: "The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting" https://twitter.com/CHARLIEM0RGAN/st...35719700602881
