Who likes goodies?

No, I have not misspelled "goals" - it's about to get all summer-y up in herrrre. So as not to overwhelm you, let's start with two quick goodies, which will soon be followed by full MLSS reports.

  • So, who wants to start the Jozy Altidore summer club watch? I have learned that among widespread interest of varying levels are the likes of Schalke and Lazio. I have more confirmed, with further winkers in England, Italy, Russia and Ukraine... but let's hold off on that for now. Instead, I will throw up our offside flag on Spanish reports that linked the striker with Aston Villa, Real Betis and Sevilla. These rumors are exactly that and no more.
  • Recent UK reports, smelling vastly of fish and chips, claimed that Tottenham were looking to sell Clint Dempsey this summer. I have been assured by two separate birdies in the know that this report is bunk. Everyone is happy with everyone else, nothing to see here.

Catch your breath, there's a lot more to come soon...

The Bundesliga would be great. Schalke would be great as well. Clubs like Schalke, Leverkusen, BMG, and Werder Bremen would seem to fit.

Clearly those foolish teams don't read Bigsoccer forums, or they would know that Jozy's rubbish. His inability to single handedly overcome his coach's ineptitude is proof that he is lazy.

Ugh. I hope he doesn't go to Lazio.

If it makes you feel better, they have not made any approach to anyone yet. They want a new striker and have him on a shortlist.

ugh, we are really missing something fellas as a soccer nation. I mean, Christian bentake torches USA last night and he bagged something like 30 goals this season for villa, and here there is talk about what team would be good for jozy and how stupid his national coach is for not using him correctly.

I guess we now know who was the top player for aston villa this season.

Right now, we're missing a ton of sense...

Right. If there is one thing Villa does NOT need it's a strong central forward. I think they're just fine with Benteke / Bent / Weimann. Here's to hoping he goes Bundesliga... Especially Schalke.

Bent is on his way out. Lambert does not rate him and he has no future for AV.

If a club like Atletico throws 25 million pounds at Randy Lerner for Benteke, I wager he would take it. I give it a coin flip whether that will happen.

Weimann and Agbolahor are not center forwards. They are excellent forwards on the wings in a 4-3-3. With Agbonlahor's pace and Weimann's motor, I could see Jozy doing well.
