Geoff Cameron plays for Stoke in England trying to avoid relegation, and has been very quiet since the USMNT was eliminated from the World Cup during qualifying. Not any more, in a very good article. By Marc Stein for the New York Times.
  • It was Bruce Arena's fault.
  • Klinsmann would have gotten the job done.
  • Arena hints that Cameron was one the "bad eggs" he referred too a couple weeks ago.
  • Credits Clint Dempsey with breaking through the English Premier League wall as an outfield player. (I would give that credit to Brian McBride.)


Man City did pay NYCFC a fair market price for Jack Harrison - $6M. By Jeff Carlisle for ESPNFC.
