ASN Morning Read: Oguchi Onyewu, College Student
The United States central defender is putting in work at QPR (worst expression ever), looking for a new club, and taking classes at Clemson. Ray Hudson would be screaming about that if he knew.
Ladies and gentlemen, Ray Hudson: "Hair uncombed and wearing a red, open-collar shirt, Hudson wraps himself in rapt anticipation of brilliant dribbling and passing. As a great play develops, he might inhale, stiffen his torso or thrust his head forward. When a goal looks imminent, he might point at the screen or shout. Missed opportunities are met with deep, audible sighs."
The Washington Post catches up with Oguchi Onyewu. He talks about life at QPR and going back to Clemson to try to finish his degree: "I finish training, take a shower, get home as fast as I can so I can do my work. It takes a lot of discipline and patience. I have to excel physically and then get home and excel mentally. I have to think about the future. Unfortunately, soccer careers don’t last forever."
Good news for Steve Cherundolo. One, he looks a bit like Derek Zoolander in this photo. And two, he is back training.
Eric Lichaj gets a feature in the Nottingham Forest magazine. “Right now is the most exciting time of my career,” he says. “With the way our squad is building I think we can finish in the top two. That’s what I want. Ever since I was young it has been my dream to play in a World Cup. I would do almost anything to be in that squad, however my immediate priority is to win promotion with Forest.”
In other U.S. defender news, Michael Parkhurst could come back to Major League Soccer. Good, we missed him and his non-fouling ways.
Would you like to watch MLS Cup in slo-mo? There's a joke there that we're not going to make because this is actually really, really cool:
U.S. Soccer is having some sort of NCAA tournament-style face-off to determine the best moment ever.
Damn, it feels good to be Omar Gonzalez:
