American Exports: Bedoya, Helsingborg cough up points
Alejandro Bedoya, Helsingborg

AMSTERDAM – A handful of Americans suited up for some Monday night football overseas, with Alejandro Bedoya's Helsingborg seeing victory snatched away late in a 1-1 home draw with Malmö FF.

The US midfielder (above, right) went the distance at right midfield, drawing two saves from the away 'keeper. The result leaves the defending champs eight points shy of a Europa League slot with seven matches to play.

Next door in Norway's Tippeligaen, Steve Clark had a rare off night in goal as Hønefoss dropped a 3-2 decision at Vålerenga.

Despite four saves from the Michigan native, the visitors saw their win drought stretched to five games. Chad Barrett was a dugout spectator for Vålerenga, who have won three straight at home.

Over in Israel, Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona midfielder Bryan Gerzicich made his first league appearance of the season with 18 minutes off the bench in a 3-0 loss at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Finally, in Portugal, Tony Taylor went unused as Estoril notched their first top flight win in wholesale soccer kitsmore than seven years, 3-1 over visiting Marítimo.

AMSTERDAM – Rangers midfielder Maurice Edu is on his way to Stoke City to complete a transfer move, MLSsoccer.com has learned.

Sources indicated to MLSsoccer.com that Edu had been monitored by Stoke for several weeks, moving up their shopping list after a loan deal for Tottenham's Tom Huddlestone fell apart. The Premier League club has made an offer of £300,000 (about $475,000), meeting a release-fee clause negotiated when the the 26-year-old California native accepted a large pay cut before Rangers was dissolved and reformed this past spring.

Heavily targeted when Rangers were dropped to the Scottish fourth flight as part of the penalty for their financial problems, Edu has already spurned the chance to join Bursaspor, Evian, Trabzonspor and Valenciennwoman soccer jerseyes this summer. He also received mild interest from the likes of Queens Park Rangers and Valencia during the transfer window.

Should Edu sign on with the Potters, he will join US teammate Geoff Cameron, who arrived from the Houston Dynamo a couple weeks back. Delayed by visa issues, the latter will be hoping for his EPL debut when Stoke hosts Arsenal on Sunday.

PORTLAND, Ore. – When Eric Alexander joined the Portland Timbers halfway through the season last year, he knew he’d have to play his way onto the field through quality training sessions.

And this year, that truth couldn’t be more apparent.

Alexander is part of an extremely experienced and talented midfield – which runs practically two to three players deep at every position. And as the Timbers prepare for First Kick presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods against Philadelphia on March 12 (9:30 pm ET; ESPN2), Alexander said the competition in training for a starting spot couldn’t be more competitive.

“It’s really tough every day in training with so many good players at every position,” Alexander said. “It’s going to be intewoman soccer jerseyresting to see who plays. Whoever has the best trainings is probably going to be who plays. It’s tough every day, it’s really competitive but it’s good. It brings the best out in you.”

And head coach John Spencer has said just as much. In Portland, starting spots are going to be earned on the practice field and the competition up and down the roster will only make for better quality on game day.

But what that starting four at midfield will look like against Philadelphia is anybody’s guess.

If captain Jack Jewsbury and Designated Player Diego Chara are two pillars in the middle, then the two flanker spots are seemingly up for grabs. The addition of Franck Songo’o, who emerged as one of the team’s best players in the preseason with four assists in the four games he appeared in, and Alexander’s continued strong play has fueled the debate.

Songo’o’s preseason play seemed like it would be enough to earn a starting spot. But he suffered a knee injury during Portland’s Feb. 23 scrimmage against Oregon State and then returned to Spain to sort out visa issues, where he remains. Spencer expects him back with the team in the next few days, but that extended absence could open a spot for others.

That puts players like Kalif Alhassan, who made 27 starts and recorded six assists last year, and Sal Zizzo, who started 14 games last year but has been out this preseason after knee surgery, in the hunt.

“Everybody is trying to get a spot now,” Alhassan told the team's website. “So, everybody is trying to work on their stuff. I think I need to do more. Coach already knows what I can do, so I’m trying to do more so I can get a [starting] spot.”

And then there’s second-year player Darlington Nagbe, who can play midfield or forward. James Marcelin and Rodney Wallace, both of whom have recently represented their respective national teams, are also in the mix.

“It definitely keeps you on your toes,” Alexander said. “But it’s also good to get that extra encouragement to work hard every day in training to keep your spot. It’s good. It’s a good group of players, and it’s going to be a fun year.”

Even the players aren’t quite sure who will be on the field come game day.

“[Spencer] keeps it pretty close to the chest,” Alexander said. “And that’s OK. We don’t really have an idea.”

thailand soccer jersey Arnaud lives out dream moment on Montreal’s big day

MONTREAL – Long after the packs of reporters and cameramen had finished their business and left the Impact’s locker room, Davy Arnaud began gathering his things.

Montreal’s captain slipped a stylish charcoal suit jacket over his light blue dress shirt – the same get-up each of his teammates were outfitted in – and plucked the game ball from his locker. Covering every inch of free space were his teammates' signatures, mementos from a historic night for both Arnaud and the Impact.

On the day MLS officially introduced itself to Montreal, Arnaud took home the plaudits. The 11-year veteran, who had spent the entirety of his career with Kansas City until an offseason trade landed him in Quebec, gave his side a lead in the second half with a trademark late run into the box and leaping header, a goal that will take its place in club history reels for years to come.

Of course, the lead didn’t stand up – Chicago striker Dominic Oduro made sure of that – but it couldn’t put a damper on Arnaud’s assessment of the occasion when asked how the match stacked up with the rest of the shining moments in his career.

“It’s got to be up there,” Arnaud told MLSsoccer.com. “You get a sense as a player how big a game is for a club. Even though a lot of us have only been here for a couple months, we know how big this was. For a night like this or a day like this, you’re going to remember it for a long time.”

Then Arnaud paused, before summing it all up; the goal, the match and the record-setting crowd of 58,912 strong that packed the Big O to welcome the MLS edition of the Impact to Montreal.

“This is one of my more special moments in the league,” he said. “That’s for sure.”

Truthfully, it will be a moment that stays with those in attendance for as long as their memories remain intact.

In the stands, where empty seats were hard to find, French mixed with English, and the crowd made their presence known in full force each time the Impact even sniffed an attacking opportunity.

The Ultras Montréal took up residence in the curved section that used to abut home plate at Expos games and bounced and sang for 90 minutes. And when Arnaud scored and sprinted toward the corner flag, channeling his inner turtle by spinning 360 degrees on his back, they helped commemorate a occasion that seemed close to perfect.

“I think it’s the dream scenario for [Davy],” head coach Jesse Marsch said with a smile before taking stock of what Arnaud means to a club still in its MLS infancy. “For us, we put a lot into what being on this team means and what the group means. Davy is our leader, he’s our captain.”

Needless to say, Arnaud has taken on that mantle and those expectations with aplomb.

More than any other player, the 31-year-old midfielder bears the weight of responsibility for the Impact’s fortunes on the field, a burden that comes with pulling on the armband and leading your teammates onto the pitch.

He delivered spectacularly on Saturday, only one thing preventing a captain, a club and a fanbase from enjoying a day straight out of the storybooks.

“It was a special feeling a special moment … not only for me, but also for the guys, and for the club,” Arnaud said. “It would have been better if we got the three points.”

AMSTERDAM — A few American exports suited up in Europe under Friday night lights, with Sacha Kljestan and Belgian leaders Anderlecht running their Jupiler League unbeaten run to 15 games with a 0-0 derby draw at Standard Liège.

The former Chivas USA man buried a rebound to seemingly open the scoring in the 15th minute, but the play had been negated by an offside flag. Anderlecht nudged their first-place edge to two points with a second consecutive draw to open Belgium's peculiar playoff between the top six teams on the table, but will be passed if second-place Club Brugge win on Sunday.

Over in England's Championship, Robbie Rogers came on for the final five minutes of Leeds United's 2-0 loss at Reading. The loss, their third in four, dropped the White to six points off the promotion playoff pace.

In Dutch second-division play, Charles Kazlauskas returned with 14 relief minutes as red-hot Helmond Sport edged guests FC Volendam 1-0. With six wins in a row, the southerners are close to clinching a promotion playoff spot.

CARSON, Calif. – Michael Farfan scored deep into stoppage time as the Philadelphia Union snatched a late 2-1 victory over the LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center Wednesday night.

Farfan, who also contributed an assist in first-half stoppage time, scored the winner in the fifth of an additional six minutes of stoppage time.

The loss was the Galaxy's second consecutive defeat while the Union returned to the victory column after a setback in Houston last weekend.

OPTA Chalkboard: Galaxy dominate opening exchanges, but Union win the war

The night started brightly for the home side as Omar Gonzalez returned to the Galaxy's starting lineup just shy of six months after tearing a ligament in his left knee. The 2011 MLS Defender of the Year, who played 45 minutes in a scrimmage on Monday afternoon, started alongside David Júnior Lopes in central defense,his first start since MLS Cup 2011.

HIGHLIGHTS: LA vs PHI

Whether it was Gonzalez's return or the lively home atmosphere, the Galaxy came out full throttle and placed immense pressureon the Union's backline and 'keeper Zac MacMath from the start. Robbie Keane had three chances in the first 25 minutes butwas felled by two goal-line clearances and a save by MacMath. Hector Jimenez also had a shot turned away by the Philadelphia'keeper.

The Union weathered the storm, and around the 20th minute began to look a bit more composed, passing the ball aroundmore than they had.

Nonetheless, the match seemed headed to intermission in a scoreless draw, but a bit of individual brilliance changed that. Farfan skinned Lopes down the right side of the penalty area, got to the touchline and pulled a cross back toward goal. It found a streaking Jack McInerney, who got to the near post before A.J. DeLaGarza and hit a backheel that snuggled just inside the back post for the 1-0 lead.

When the Galaxy took the field in search of an equalizer, Gonzalez's night ended as Sean Franklin replaced him, sliding DeLaGarza back to central defense.

Philadelphia took a more defensive approach in the second half but did well to keep the Galaxy under wraps initially. LA had another flurry in front of the goal on the hour as Lopes rattled the crossbar and Juninho's follow-up attemptwas headed out by Amobi Okugo.

It wasn't until the 73rd minute that the Galaxy nabbed the equalizer. Landon Donovan fed Todd Dunivant on the left side of the area, giving the left back time and space to slip a ball across goal. Somehow the ball made its way through a group of players and Chad Barrett was there to tuck it in, his first of the season.

FULL LINEUPS AND BOXSCORE

With LA pushing for the winner, Philly started to find room on the counter. Second-half substitute Antoine Hoppenot nearly scored on a giveaway in the 77th minute as Juninho failed to collect a ball, but was stoned by Saunders.

The veteran ‘keeper could do nothing 18 minutes later, however. Sub Lionard Pajoy held Franklin off along the touchline, then hit a backheel into space for Farfan. The attacking midfielder dribbled into the area and, using DeLaGarza as a screen, beat Saunders to the far post for the 2-1 final.

Philadelphia (5-9-2, 17 points) stay ninth in the Eastern Conference, just one point back of the Montreal Impact but with three games in hand. They’re back in action on Sunday when they host bottom-dwelling Toronto FC.

LA (6-11-2, 20 points) continue to sit just outside the Western Conference playoff hunt in sixth place. They next play aWholesale soccer uniformt Chicago on Sunday afternoon.

thailand soccer jersey Revs Notebook- Caution the name of the game for Heaps

Revs Notebook: Caution the name of the game for Heaps

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Every day teaches Stephen McCarthy a little bit more about coping with a head injury.

The road isn't an easy one for the New England center back. He avoided any meaningful physical exertion for two full weeks and sat out the past two matches as he grappled with the impact of sustaining a second head injury in a matter of months. Now he takes his recovery one day at a time as he tries to resume his normal duties.

“It's tough,” McCarthy told MLSsoccer.com earlier this week. “I'm trying to take it day-by-day. I think [Revolution coach Jay Heaps] is the same way. The training staff is good about [checking to see] how I'm feeling each day. We look at it each morning and each afternoon, how does it feel coming in and out. If it's good, then I'll keep going. If it's not, then I'll take a little step back. It's good right now.”

McCarthy felt well enough to train with his teammates on Tuesday, but one training session isn't enough to put him in contention for a place in the squad for Saturday's season finale at Montreal (2 pm ET, watch LIVE online). Heaps said on Tuesday that he won't rush McCarthy back into the squad for this weekend's match if he isn't fully fit.

“There will be a pretty cautious thought process on that one,” Heaps said.

Tierney tries to finish out strong

Similar words of caution placed Chris Tierney's availability for the remainder of the season in doubt just a few weeks ago. The defender/midfielder sustained left hamstring and left knee injuries in a training ground clash prior to the Revolution's 2-1 defeat at D.C. United on Sept. 15.

Instead of closing up shop for the season, Tierney buckled down and pushed himself to finish out the campaign on the field. He ended his three-match absence by featuring as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 victory over Chicago last weekend.

“It's important for me,” Tierney said. “You always want to be involved, be a part of the team and be out training with the guys. We have a good group that we hope will be around next year. The more we play with each other, the more comfortable we get all get playing together, the better. It's good to have as many guys fit as possible.”

Gearing up for a rare matinee

While other MLS sides play in the afternoon on a fairly frequent basis, the Revs haven't started a match before 4 pm ET this season. They haven't even played an afternoon game of any sort since visiting Toronto FC in June.

Heaps said he and his technical staff have deviated from their usual preparations in order to accommodate for the abnormal start time.

“You tailor training sessions to maximize the players' energy levels without burning them out,” the Revs boss said. “There's a little more time to reccheap soccer jerseyover with a night game. With a 2 pm game, you have to prepare a little sooner and make sure the guys are rested.”

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Tuesday's exhibition game against Ohio State may not have held any competitive weight for the Columbus Crew, but it did offer a glimpse at the forward pairing of Emilio Rentería and Justin Meram, who could be starting up front in league games for the next few weeks.

Crew head coach Robert Warzycha on Tuesday said that Aaron Schoenfeld and Olman Vargas, the starters last Saturday against Vancouver, could be out for awhile because of injuries suffered in that game, a 1-0 defeat.

Schoenfeld has a heel injury – more specifically a right plantar fascia rupture – that could sideline him for at least a month. Vargas has a left hamstring contusion that Warzycha estimates could keep him off the field for two to three weeks.

“We will practice Wednesday and Thursday and see what we will do,” WarzychWholesale soccer uniforma said.

That could give an opportunity for Rentería (above) to regain his starting job Saturday at Portland. The Venezuelan had a goal and an assist as the Crew defeated the Buckeyes in the 11th annual Connor Senn Memorial Match at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

The Crew opened the scoring after just two minutes when Aubrey Perry fed Cole Grossman. In the fifth minute, Bernardo Añor slotted a ball from Rentería. Their roles switched minutes later as Rentería netted with a diving header off Añor’s cross. Grossman made it 4-0 in the 22nd.

The match was called in the 31st minute because of lightning.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Crew looked fluid, lively and inventive on the offensive side of the ball against D.C. United on Saturday. It was a sharp contract to a sluggish effort in their previous match–a 2-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City on July 14.

“We felt like we had possession [vs. Sporting] but we weren’t causing anyone any problems,” midfielder Chris Birchall said. “We could have played for hours not scoring.”

Using three offensive-minded midfielders underneath newcomer Jairo Arrieta (above left), the Crew energized tcheap soccer jerseyheir fans by pressuring United from the onset. Afterward, there was a sense in the Crew locker room that recent struggles might be over. However, there is a caveat.

Despite the renewed emphasis on offense, the Crew (7-7-4) managed to only tally once –the eventual game-winner from Birchall –to maintain their season mark of one goal per game. In other words, where it really matters – on the scoreboard – nothing really changed. The Crew still have trouble making the final pass and their shot selection is questionable.

HIGHLIGHTS: CLB 1, DC 0

There is hope, though, that two additions to Saturday’s lineup could make an impact. Midfielder Dilly Duka made just his fourth start of a season riddled by injuries but was arguably the best player on the field.

“He’s fun to watch,” goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum said. “He brings an element to the team I felt was lacking, a little creativity, a little bit of deception.”

Arrieta, the other addition, started his second straight match since joining the team and set up Birchall’s goal with a pinpoint pass into space.

Now that the Crew (7-7-4) have their creativity issue solved, the dilemma for head coach Robert Warzycha is whether to tinker with the chemistry for Saturday’s match at Sporting Kansas City.

Forward Emilio Rentería returns from a one-game suspension, but Arrieta’s play may keep him on the bench. Milovan Mirosevic (adductor strain) might be available, although it’s hard to see him displacing Duka, Eddie Gaven or Justin Meram in the midfield at the moment.

Mr. Versatility

Defender Josh Williams completed a hat trick of sorts.

He was the left back vs. D.C. United, but in the previous two matches started at center and right back, respectively. Williams’ aerial play has made him a threat on set pieces and twice he’s had goals nullified by controversial calls.

“Seems like every time I get a head on it something bad happens,” he said.

While pursuing a first career goal, he’s also seen his bicycle kick hit the crossbar, had his header denied point-blank by Portland goalkeeper Tony Perkins and had a shot cleared off the goal line by Timbers’ midfielder Diego Chara.

Odds are it will come sooner than later as Williams continues to contribute on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
