ASN Morning Read: Guzan Is the Man in England
The United States No. 2 earns himself quite an honor over there on the other side of the Atlantic; ze Germans struggle; and there's something about a new team in New York City?
Gareth Crooks puts the Aston Villa netminder on his team of the season. The words: "Despite Villa's struggles, the 28-year-old had an outstanding season and the fact he was selected in my Team of the Week on more occasions than Chelsea's Petr Cech and Manchester City's Joe Hart says a great deal about his level of consistency. He hardly got a look-in last season but the American has established himself ahead of Shay Given this campaign, an achievement in itself. Did you know? Guzan claimed more catches (97) than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League in 2012-13."
Meanwhile, Zach Slaton goes deep into the EPL season that was. He writes about a billion words. We read some of them but looked at all the graphs. Totally worth the time. You'll wow people at brunch this weekend. And if that's not reason enough, well, you should re-examine your life.
Oh hey, NYCFC.
How do you say "garbage" in German? That's how Americans played in the country's leagues this year. Jermaine Jones was the best player in the Bundesliga with John Anthony Brooks, who doesn't even really count because he's not playing for the U.S. yet (ever?), taking the honor in the 2. Bundesliga.
Grant Wahl talks to Dortmund's Neven Subotic about the Champions League final and getting discovered in a Florida park. Good stuff from GDubs.
Bulgarian/American forward Villyan Bijev will play for the European side's U-21 squad this summer. Whatever?
