    There's not been a lot of good news for Yanks abroad as of late.

    Cameron is still injured - hasn't played any since Oct 22
    Wood has only played in one match (16 minutes) since getting a red card in his Oct 30 match
    Johnson has only come off the bench for his last four league appearances
    Johannsson has only played 20 minutes since Sept
    Guzan - no minutes since Aug
    Green - one appearance this season
    Carter-Vickers - two appearances this season

    Lots of good minutes for Williams, Brooks, Johnson, Lichaj, Spector, and our young crown prince Mr. Pulisic.

    When you get in the doghouse in the Bundesliga it's a long road back with managers. I remember the quote from Wood's gaffer ripping his red card and went ah oh.

    Good to see Bobby Wood started and scored albeit in a 3-1 loss for Hamburg.

    Make that 2 matches in a row for Bobby, and this time his goal was in a big 2-1 win for Hamburg to help them get out of the relegation zone.

    Julian Green smartly pursued and signed a contract for 2nd division Stuggart, in hopes of getting much needed playing time.

    I haven't heard of him either, but other than reading about Perry Kitchen's move all the way to captain, kind of strange Johnsen is never mentioned in those Hearts updates. He was born and raised here, but can play for both the US or Norway, but never played for either youth sides. Has gone on an European adventure after high school and seems to be able to score wherever he goes.

    Was totally unaware, but we do have a yank managing and doing quite well in the Championship. David Wagner was raised in Germany, but earned 8 caps for the US in the mid to late 90's and just missed out on making the 98 WC team. He is now managing at Huddersfield and hopefully will guide them to 7th place at best :D

    Just checked him out on Wiki -- a typical "JK American" -- born and raised in Germany, all his football was in Germany, playing and managing.

    But good searching, SCJ, I'd never heard of the guy.

    Interesting take on Nagbe's status. I'd like to see him take on a new challenge. Wherever that may be....

    After starting, then getting pulled in yesterday's FA Cup tie, Hyndman appears to be headed to Scotland on loan.

    Fantastic! He's a brilliant young player ... and I've become addicted to Dortmund these last few months. I love all the speed and attacking mentality.

    Watched Emerson's first start today. He looked very classy and scored a nice goal against Motherwell. I'm not sure what impressed me most -- Hyndman's play or the announcers attempt to make lower level EFL League One football seem exciting and quality. I watched a lot of football today, and Wycombe and Wolves looks streets better than Rangers, who at least looked streets better than Motherwell.

    Here's a clip of the goal
