J-J-J-Jozy (updated)

You may need to see the 2-2 equalizer just bagged by AZ hit man Jozy Altidore on 67 minutes to believe it. Hopefully, a clip of his ninth league goal of the season emerges quickly. Will there be two clips to wait on by then... ?

UPDATE: Feast your eyes on this clever beauty.

Description please?

Greg Seltzer said...

I don't feel I can do it justice.

Mikey B said...

Fair enough. Is Klinnsman calling him in for the Ruskies?

Greg Seltzer said...

Given his recent comment, I'm not supremely hopeful. I wish he would, though. Enough of this mess.

Mikey B said...

Do you have any idea what is going on between those two?

Greg Seltzer said...

A fully-formed and informed idea? No. It's a bit strange and murky. And strange. To me, it doesn't add up.

Mikey B said...

My working theory? Jozy John Harkes'd his wife ;)

Mikey B said...

At least I hope so. I'd understand if that were the reason he's giving Jozy the cold shoulder. Anything else just doesn't make sense.

Greg Seltzer said...

As much as I despise assumptions, I am going to go ahead and assume that is not the issue.

Mikey B said...

Ha! A total lack of transparency and information creates a fertile breeding ground for wild ass speculation. I'm going with my theory until I hear a reasonable explanation ;)

Disregard that. Misleading title is misleading.

you'd think if there is one position coach klinsmann really knows, it is striker. its simple really, coach wants to get the most out of jozy, not 80% or 85%. not 90 or 95%. he wants 100% effort, all the time. and if jozy is not running, he needs to be using his mind to think about what to do next.

jozy can pretend like beating weak ass dutch league defenders is something special, which it aint, or he can put his head down and grow up.

besides, game winning assist are more importaint anyway, which is something jermaine jones did today

Greg Seltzer said...

Past the correct Klinsmann observation, nothing you say here is un-spun. Some of it is downright taffy.

dikranovich said...

your too funny greg.

Greg Seltzer said...

No, seriously. Which aspect of this Chandler situation do you suppose you are being denied deserved say?

dikranovich said...

oh, you want to talk chandler here on this thread also?

Greg Seltzer said...

Urgh... wrong post.

Alex Larsen said...

Is it just me or is he also releasing the roster uncharacteristically close to the actual match

Greg Seltzer said...

Yeah. I've never seen a squad announced only two days prior to the match. It's curious.

Mikey B said...

What a goal. This further reinforces my theory. If he can score like that then the only plausible reason for his USMNT exclusion is his propensity to John Harkes Klinnman's wife.

Matt said...

Did they announce the USMNT roster yet? If so, where? I can't find it on the USSoccer site...

Greg Seltzer said...

Tomorrow.

UnitedDemon said...

My response to this goal was an expletive.

Tom said...

Klinsman is starting to give me a "Howard Hughes manages the Nats" vibe.

dikranovich said...

so jozy is making the trip to russia. everyone can relax now.

Mikey B said...

How do you know he's been called? Where is the roster posted?

dikranovich said...

I heard it through the grapevine.

dikranovich said...

yikes, italy has a "friendly" with france on wed. and guess what, they just named their roster today, just in time to keep derossi off of the team.

i guess coach klinsmann naming his roster two days before aint that big a deal.
