These two again...

Two months down and one to go on our cross-country jaunt, the lady and I are currently hangin' with my friends and family in the STL. Obviously, that doesn't leave much time for posting (although you can look for my MLS Cup player ratings at MLSS after the game), but I wanted to drop by with the weekend goals from our boys across the pond. That task is becoming a regular thing, as Bjørn Maars Johnsen and Andrew Wooten have struck again,

Johnsen hit Hearts' first goal (top clip) in a 2-2 draw at Ross County on Saturday, while Wooten bagged the opener (to reach fourth on the 2. Bundesliga scoring chart) in a big win at FC Nürnberg earlier in the same day.

The Björn Supremacy

Hearts striker Björn Maars Johnsen scored twice on Saturday to lead the hosts to a 3-0 win over Motherwell, doubling his season total in the process.

OFCOL

So I settle in to watch the Conference Final opener between Montreal and Toronto FC, and the start ends up being delayed 40 minutes. Why? Dig this craziness...



Ummm, how is it even slightly possible nobody noticed this until seconds before kickoff? Sweet Christmas, they had an international break to figure it out.

It's official.

Yep. Andrew Wooten is definitely en fuego. After hitting twice (and adding an assist) today to lead Sandhausen to a 3-1 win at Karlsruhe, the US international has seven goals in his last seven games across all competitions.He's bagged three winners and a last-gasp equalizer during this streak, and is now tied for third in the 2. Bundesliga goal scoring chart.

Not Josh-in' around

As we get set to fly from Seattle to New Orleans today, I have little quick FYI for all you Sunday soccer watchers: Fiorentina have named Josh Perez to their provisional squad for tomorrow's Serie A tilt with Empoli.

I should have more time to post next week, so I will weigh in on the whole Klinsi ordeal and I will also drop an L.A. tacos Top 5'er. Because tacos, duh.

Your USMNT line-up v Costa Rica

Same exact field players, we'll see about the shape... is the boss capable of learning a lesson? Dunno at this point.
