thailand soccer jersey Central Winger- Are player position names still evolving-_4

However, the two red sections are more difficult to define. Partition No. 5 tends to include mostly defensive-minded players that tend to join the attack, such as Steven Beitashour, Seth Sinovic, Chance Myers, Young-Pyo Lee and Chris Tierney. Partition No. 1, on the other hand, includes players such as Tony Beltran, Chris Wingert and Kevin Alston.

And that’s the tactical point. Analytically, there’s a difference between "outside defenders" and "wing backs" – or more of a difference, anyway, than there are in other commonly defined positions.

This process of player classification isn’t yet at the level where it can evaluate a player more accurately than a well-trained eye, but the metrics we are using to partition these players are incredibly rcheap soccer uniformudimentary. Instead of using simple positional stats, we can instead look at other stats such as interceptions, shots or even pass completion rate. With added metrics, we can perhaps even more precisely identify types of players – and perhaps even different subcategories not originally imagined.

It took four years, but the San Jose Earthquakes believe they’ve finally found a No. 10 worthy of that mantle.

The Quakes announced on Thursday that they’ve signed playmaking Colombian midfielder Tressor Moreno, a diminutive 33-year-old who will be counted on to boost the club’s offensive output. San Jose scored 40 goals last year, tied for 14th in MLS, as they failed to reach the MLS Cup Playoffs.

Asked if he thought Moreno was the club’s first legitimate No. 10 since the franchise was reborn in 2008, Quakes coach Frank Yallop didn’t hesitate.

“I think so,” Yallop told reporters on a conference call. “Simon Dawkins is a good soccer player, but more of a forward. This guy looks to pass the ball. … It’s the first time we’ve got [a player] who looks to do what No. 10s do.”

Namely, that’s unlock opposing defenses, something the Quakes have had difficulty doing, notwithstanding Chris Wondolowski’s 34 goals over the past two years.

TORONTO – Jonathan de Guzman didn’t win any public relations points in his native Canada on Tuesday, but that doesn’t appear to bother him much anymore.

After reports had indicated he was looking to suit up for his birth country after so far failing to break into the Dutch national team, de Guzman announced on Tuesday that he has no intentions of playing for Canada in the future.

De Guzman was spotted at BMO Field during Canada’s World Cup qualifying match against Honduras and gave an interview with The Score television network in which he revealed he only has eyes for the Netherlands. The 24-year-old has been involved in the Dutch youth set-up in the past, but has yet to feature for the senior team. However, he feels he’s still in the mix and could receive the call after the conclusion of the European Championship.

Oddly enough, de Guzman gave the interview while wearing a Canada team warm-up jacket, a move that may burn bridges with the Canada faithful that hoped to one day see him suit up for the Canucks with older brother and Toronto FC stalwart Julian.

SANDY, Utah – There’s no doubt that Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis has strong beliefs about the way in which he would like to see the game of soccer played. Not only does he want to be successful in a results sense, but he also wants to win with an attractive, flowing style.

One reported suitor for Dempsey is Roma, which means he should talk to Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley. “General Bradley,” as the Italian press calls him, says all his US teammates are curious about his experience in Serie A. “They want to know about the quality of the league, the lifestyle and what’s like to live in Italy.”

Jozy Altidore isn’t looking to move anywhere. The striker just had the best year of his career in his first season at AZ Alkmaar. “I’d never really had the chance to express myself [at other clubs], but here I’ve got that and it changes everything,” he said.

A change is just what Maurice Edu needed. With his club, Rangers, in turmoil over financial problems, the holding midfielder says being with the USMNT is “kind of like a little escape from the situation right now.”

The Dynamo’s Andre Hainault will join Canada after Saturday’s match against the LA Galaxy (2:30 pm ET, NBC Sports Network). But there were some issues he had to clear up with Canadian manager Stephen Hart before he got the call.

Stuck in the middle of an eight-game winless streak, FC Dallas found themselves struggling to hold leads and score goals. At one point during the streak, FCD went 231 minutes without finding net.

Against Real Salt Lake on Saturday night, the offense finally started firing on all cylinders. They poured it on during the last 25 minutes, tallying twice, putting the home side on the back foot often and generally looking like a revitalized team.

And it wasn’t enough. DespiteGermany Soccer Jersey all their efforts, the winless streak hit nine as FCD crumbled in stoppage time, conceding a Nat Borchers goal in the 93rd minute to fall 3-2.

Nonetheless, head coach Schellas Hyndman is choosing to look on the bright side.

“We got realistically two guys running at you," he told MLSsoccer.com of his short-handed side. "We have Blas Pérez and Jackson. Everyone else is just filling holes right now. It’s encouraging to score two goals.”

Milan Borjan’s brief time in Romania was a rollicking success.

While on loan with Vaslui in the Liga 1 from Turkish side Sivasspor, the Canadian national team goalkeeper capped off his spell with the club by recording his fifth clean sheet and ninth win in a row, as Vaslui defeated Universitatea Cluj 1-0 to finish second in the league with 70 points.

Vaslui finished just one point shy of league winners CFR Cluj, but their final standing in the league qualifies them for next season’s UEFA Champions League qualifying rounds.

With most of Canadian players in foreign leagues either finished for the season or headed to Florida to meet up with the national team ahead of three games in June, it was a relatively quiet week for other Canadians abroad.

Most of the other Canadians in action this past week were other goalkeepers.

In Norway, Lars Hirschfeld was in goal during Vålerenga’s 1-0 loss to Hønefoss. It was Vålerenga’s second straight loss after reeling off three consecutive wins. They sit in ninth place in the 16-team Eliteserien on 13 points.

The nightmare continues for fellow goalkeeper Tomer Chencinski in Sweden. It’s now 11 games and counting without a win for Chencinski and his club, Örebro.

On Sunday, Chencinski only gave up a single goal but it was all opponents Syrianski FC would need as that goal stood up for a 1-0 result. Örebro hasn’t exactly given their goalkeeper much support as through 11 games – they have only scored nine times.

They sit dead last in the Allsvenskan with only four points to show for their season.

Continuing the trip through Scandinavia, defender Mason Trafford continues to be playing well with Mariehamn in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.

Trafford has played every minute this season through eight games this season and on Sunday, Mariehamn picked up a 2-1 victory over Inter Turku. The win moved Mariehamn into fourth place on 14 points – seven points adrift of top team HJK, who have played one more game.

CARSON, Calif. – Even as the LA Galaxy bombed out in one game after the next to start 2012, crashing out of the CONCACAF Champions League and then stumbling to the Western Conference basement in a 3-8-2 start, things were actually even worse than they appeared.

That’s Mike Magee’s take on the reigning MLS Cup champions’ horrendous first two-and-a-half months to the new season, and he says it required a special intervention by the “big-timers” in the locker room to set things straight.

“It was bad,” Magee told media following the Galaxy’s training session Thursday morning at the Home Depot Center. “We downplayed it a bit, but it wasn’t like us. There’s a lot of veteran guys and guys like myself that just weren’t performing. We’d all look at each other, and the worst part was we weren’t fighting for each other.

“Obviously, last year, there were times guys had bad days, but everyone else just picked it up,” he added. “This year, no one was picking other guys up.”

soccer uniform wholesale For DC, heat & injuries play major factors in Houston loss_2

United actually got off to a decent start at the beginning of the match, taking the crowd out of the game and taking advantage of the revved up Houston squad.

But an injury to defensive midfielder Perry Kitchen changed the course of the game for United. From that point forward, the momentum decisively swung in Houston’s favor.

“The injury [to Kitchen] coincided with a real sense of fatigue throughout the team,” United manager Ben Olsen told reporters after the game. “We had a break all week, and guys were fresh, but the heat hit us pretty hard.”

As the game wore on and the United players began to slow down, Houston upped the pressure. At the final whistle the Dynamo had outshot D.C., 20-4, and outpossessed them, 55 percent to 45 percent.

“A couple of things went wrong today.” Olsen added. “It was the first time we had a little bit of heat. And we didn’t do so well with it. But with the heat and the injuries, it was just a bit too much to overcome.”

The day, of course, marked the opening of the new BBVA Compass Stadium for the Dynamo, and several former Dynamo players for United, including goalkeeper coach Pat Onstad, De Rosario and Danny Cruz. That mattered little though. The result — the second loss in three league matches — mattered more.

thailand soccer jersey American Exports- Garza, Club Tijuana eye playoff berth_2

Despite the delay in getting his first start, Garza says waiting in the wings for his big opportunity was in no way getting him down.

“It wasn’t frustrating at all,” he explained. “I’m the kind of person that, if I’m not playing, I’ll just keep trying harder and harder until that chance comes.”

To eventually earn that chance, Garza gave his all on the training pitch, in the few games he played with Tijuana’s Under-20s and in the scattered first-team opportunities that arrived, but he also made sure to turn up early to training and stay longer than anyone else.

“I’m not going to give up or throw in the towel,” he said.

Part of the reason Garza, who had previously played for Portuguese second-flight side Estoril and had a stint in Brazil, hasn’t had the minutes he would’ve liked is the excellent form of fellow American Edgar Castillo.

Castillo has claimed the left wingback position for himself, but Garza says the three Americans in the Xolos first team squad – himself, Castillo and Joe Corona – get along very well, in spite of the competition for places.
