ASN Morning Read: The Era of Julian Green Begins
Why yes we are still talking about a teenager who has played exactly zero league games for his club side. What about it? Elsewhere, Klinsmann talks and we listen, and a center back gets hitched.
Jurgen Klinsmann named 22 players to the roster that will face Mexico in Arizona next week. John Godfrey listened to Jurgen Klinsmann's comments and brilliantly reports what he made of them. Did Klinsmann tip his hat about starting Julian Green? Check the board in this video:
English papers are our favorite. This headline, Another one for the conspiracy theorists: Player leaves Stoke City... and gets international call up!, is just so silly. Because, you know, Geoff Cameron and Brek Shea. But also, big ups to Maurice Edu for getting the call.
SB Nation goes long on the Portland-Seattle rivalry, a subject that has been tackled before but perhaps not in such depth. The beginning: "When the thousands of people wearing black and green in sections 122, 123 and 124 recall the opening match of the 2014 Seattle Sounders season on March 8, they will probably remember only two minutes: the first, and the last. The first minute was darkness." There's about 4,000 more words, including a bunch of stuff about the Pig War and an epic yelling match in the comment section.
Nat Borchers firing shots: "I think [Michael] Bradley is a very similar player to Kyle Beckerman, except I think Kyle’s a better player."
Brief links to think pieces time: Why the 4-4-2 isn't going anywhere. What Julian Green means. How Fabian Johnson on the backline changes everything. The importance of the new MLS ownership group.
And finally, our congrats to the big man:
