Goodies for breakfast? Do not let your mom tell you that is bad for you. I can confirm that clubs from Denmark and Italy have joined the DeAndre Yedlin loan chase. And I think I know who one of those is. Let me get back to you on that...

My Greatest Challenge Ever

And that would of course be coming up with clever post titles riffing on the name Gedion Zelalam this season. At this rate, I will need several. Ya see, dude only marked his Rangers loan debut by setting up a pair in their 5-0 League Cup road rout on Wednesday night. Below you can view what we all hope will be the first of so, so many highlights to come for this kid.

Yed-Line News

I will have an MLSS report on this before long (and it may even contain additional info if we are lucky), but let us delve into the matter of DeAndre Yedlin's foreseeable Spurs future.

It really does not seem as though they have minds made up on it yet, but I have been told that they want to make a solid decision on where he will play (at least until January) by the September 1st transfer deadline - which, of course, EPL teams do not entirely have to follow with regards to Football League loans.

But let's not move into options for September and beyond just yet. I can confirm that Yedlin currently has what I would consider to be clamoring-style loan interest from at least three Championship clubs, at least one in Spain and then from a few other assorted Euro-locales. As for specific names, I only have hunches of varying quality for now, none confirmed.

Playing Catsup

The lady was in town for a few days this week to allow me the privilege of giving her a perfect birthday. So aside from regular work duties, I put all my focus on the tough little Russian who has probably wrestled bears that were drunk on wod-ka (holy hell, I love it when she says that word). Now that she is away again, I've remembered that goals still exist. So in our better-late-than-never style, let's run down the handful missed while I was on big, wide smile duty. My apologies for the string of delays that follows.

Don't look now, but Miguel Ibarra has scored in consecutive Copa MX matches. His weekend opener comes at the 1:57 mark.

You may have noticed Galway's Jake Keegan is up to even dozen on the term. His 11th sits below (near the start of the reel), but I have not seen a clip of the 12th (which came in a losing cup cause).

Okay, so Twitter has an occasional benefit (but still no way): Check out this week's Daniel Williams bullet here.

Meanwhile, Cesar Romero netted his first Vardar Skopje strike to cap a win. You can see a very quick look at it at the very end of this clip.

We now turn to Norway, where some Americans have excelled this season. Speaking of Cole Grossman, he notched his fourth this weekend. It's the second goal, and almost an identical shot to the one scored by Williams.

Finally, we back up a week to catch up with the fifth goal scored by MIF defender Rhett Bernstein this season. He nearly had another one against Rosenborg today. If they weren't so hopeless in defense without him, I'd suggest putting him up top and raining crosses.

Gyasi Posse

I posted this report at MLSS some hours ago, and it is already out of date. Why? Well, because I can now confirm that Reading have put an offer for Gyasi Zardes on the L.A. Galaxy table. Stay tuned, there could well be more bids to sort through before this one is done.
