ASN Morning Read: Is That a Tim Ream Sighting?
The former New York Red Bulls star shows up in the Starting XI over in England and attempts to impress; Landon Donovan cannot be stopped, nor should he be; Godfrey goes off.
Tim Ream played a deep midfield role for Bolton over the weekend and turned in an impressive performance. “You have to perform and give the manager something to think about for the games coming up,” Ream said. Considering Ream was called up for the Bosnia game, you’d have to expect he’ll get more chances with the national team as he showcases more versatility.
ASN editor-in-chief John Godfrey wrote his first “official” daily rant yesterday, arguing that Aron Johannsson will be starting for the U.S. at the World Cup next summer. He makes a pretty compelling case.
Brek Shea gets closer to returning to Stoke’s first-team, playing with the U-21s against Wolves yesterday. He came off at halftime, which is better than not being on the field at all.
In his who’s hot, who’s not piece, ESPN’s Doug McIntyre says, based on form, Landon Donovan is probably the best U.S. player anywhere right now. Tough to see Klinsmann leaving Donovan out of the starting lineup vs. Costa Rica in a few weeks time.
