Extra Time: Clarence Goodson

Let's tack some overtime quotes onto yesterday's Postcard From Europe...

On how confident the USMNT is becoming:

"It's difficult to say that off the top that we were going to go in and beat Italy in Italy. The attitude amongst the boys is that we're a hard-working team... that's how we get results. I don't think we'll always be able to beat teams like that, especially in their own country, but hopefully as we progress we'll be able to give these teams hard games."

On some reasons for the early season woes at Brøndby:

"From the time I got here, I think there's been eight or nine guys that left. There's been a lot of turnover. We've picked up a lot of guys from the youth team. When you get rid of older veterans and bring up younger ones, there's a learning curve. We've been dealing with that a bit here, but I also think we have very talented young players."

On whether his Brøndby teammates razz him over the House Hunters episode like the USMNT players do:

"Fortunately, I don't think too many of the guys over here in Scandinavia have been able to view it; the ones who have are giving me a few pokes."

I have never been able to find a full video of it. Here is a mini-teaser clip for the show:

haha thanks, that is so cheesey! didnt know he went by 'clay' haha i cannot stop laughing. I think this alone should knock him down on our CB pecking order. I think balotelli should be the next footballer to appear on this show, that would be pure gold.

Doing things to make your lady happy is not cheesy in my book.

And yeah, he's been called Clay for as long as I can remember. I'd imagine that's what his mom calls him.

Does she make him dress like that too? I suppose he could have made her happy without doing that show….

Yeah... I can't vouch for the clothes. :D
