ASN article: Hyndman on the Move, Carter-Vickers on the Pitch

Hyndman

Playing time at Rangers will not come easy for Hyndman. The club was promoted back to the Scottish Premier League last year after five years in the abyss. Now in second place, it has no chance of catching archrival Celtic this year but it is a team heading in the right direction.

At first, it is hard to see what this loan offers Hyndman that he hasn’t already learned. Yes, the Scottish League is physical and it doesn’t hurt for a young player to learn that aspect of the game. But Hyndman made his first inroads as a professional at Fulham during a time when the London club was in a relegation battle in the Championship. So the style in Scotland should not be foreign to him.

Vickers

Over the weekend Cameron Carter-Vickers earned the start for Tottenham in the FA Cup and he went the distance in a convincing 2-0 win over an inept Aston Villa squad.

It was great to see the 19-year-old get on the field at such a talented club, currently in third place in the Premier League. Carter-Vickers is one of the most promising American prospects and he has not looked out of place whenever given the chance.

The good news for Carter-Vickers is that the FA Cup and the Europa League should provide more opportunities to see the field. The bad news is that is still not enough since elimination from either tournament could come at any time. All signs point to the fact that unless a slew of injuries hit the team’s central defenders, his Premier League debut is still likely not on the horizon.

BUNDESLIGA WINTER CAMP UNDERWAY
The Bundesliga is still 10 days away from resuming but teams have reported for camp and many are playing friendlies. The winter break has been a great time in the past for American players to break into the first team with Christian Pulisic, Danny Williams, and Timothy Chandler all using this period to launch their respective professional careers.

Here is what you need to know so far:

John Brooks traveled for Hertha’s first-team camp after missing the last two games in December with an Achilles’ injury.

Fabian Johnson is also out with an Achilles’ injury and while he did not travel with Borussia Monchengladbach’s first team to Spain for camp, he told ASN that he expects to be back for the Bundesliga restart.

Aron Johannsson scored a late equalizer for Werder Bremen in Monday’s 1-1 draw against Karlsruher with a nice header off a set piece.

Is McKinze Gaines America's next young Bundesliga breakout?

Is McKinze Gaines America's next young Bundesliga breakout? | FourFourTwo


The German Bundesliga is home to an increasing number of young American soccer players – Christian Pulisic, Julian Green and Bobby Wood to name three – and there is another exciting prospect waiting in the wings for his moment to shine: Orrin McKinze Gaines II.
The 18-year-old has been at VfL Wolfsburg since March 2016, having been spotted by the club in Denmark while playing for the U.S. Under-17 side and then impressing on trial. While he has made good progress over the past 12 months, moving to a different continent and learning a new language at such a young age has proved challenging

A popular figure at the club, he is also highly rated by first-team head coach Valerien Ismael, a former Bayern Munich defender: "What sets him apart is his incredible pace. He's eager to learn – and still has a lot to learn in order to make it to the very top – but he’s a very positive presence and has huge potential."

That much is evident by the fact that the winger has trained regularly with the senior team and made his first-team debut in a friendly last year and is currently in the USA with the Wolves' reserve team at the Florida Cup. He was in the team's starting lineup in its opening fixture against the Tampa Bay Rowdies in St. Petersburg on Sunday, and provided an assist in a 2-0 victory.



I dunno too much abt tis lad.

zelalem will NOT go to dortmund


"Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has ruled out a January move for Gedion Zelalem, reveals Football London.

Dortmund had seemed that most likely destination for the young star but now we are told Zelalem is in fact closer to a move to another German side, or even the Dutch league."


Hyped up young usa players(im bored)

Wood( hamburg)
Perez(fiorentina)
brooks(hertha)
Vickers(spurs)
Pulisic(dortmund)
Jordan morris(mls)
miazga(vitesse)
haji wright(shalke)
zelalem(arsenal)
hyndman(afc boumemouth)
rubio(holland)


Overrated players: rubio , hyndman(I still like him . he will make it) , zelalem and miazga have failed so far......BUST?!

However..

wood(he was a late bloomer), brooks , vickers , morris , n pulisic are doing fine


Haji and zelalem have great potential.....but they also have the biggest bust potential.

------
Underrated young us players

Weston(shalke) , akale( villarreal) , Kai(vitesse) , palmer(fc porto/mls) and keaton(benfica). Weston could end up being our best talent. He may very well be ahead of haji right now? Hes a dominant DM.

-----

I have noticed most of these young US players have good technical skills and...a players first touch is everything

2017 could be a pivotal year for Christian Pulisic at Dortmund - Sportsnet.ca

2017 could be a pivotal year for Christian Pulisic at Dortmund

But while 2016 might have been the year Pulisic became American soccer’s next big thing, 2017 must be the year that he becomes the big thing for right now. Thomas Tuchel still seems intent on protecting the teenager, dropping him to the bench every so often to avoid burnout. He is undoubtedly Borussia Dortmund’s brightest young star along with Ousmane Dembele, but over the next 12 months he must become one of the clubs brightest stars, period.

2017 could be even more important to his growth and progress than 2016. Many players are able to break through, but few are able to back that up. Look at Adnan Januzaj or Bojan Krkic, neither of who have come close to living up to the billing they set for themselves in their breakthrough years. That is the kind of fate Pulisic must avoid.

The sample size is simply too small to judge with absolute certainty that Pulisic will become one of the best in the world. There is still plenty that could go wrong between now and becoming fully-fledged. This is why 2017 will be such an important year for the teenager. With the Bundesliga set to get under way again this weekend work, and lots of it, is still to be done.

All the while speculation continues to swirl over his future, with Liverpool reported to be particularly interested in the teenager. Jurgen Klopp, having worked with Pulisic, will know more than most whether to believe the hype or not. But in the interests of both the player himself and US soccer as a whole, he must stay at Dortmund for the time being.


hmm..ok , Vickers too(fc spurs) Both are graduates from 2 respected academies.

Boyd's move to Huddersfield won't happen, apparently they gave him a low ball offer. He still has some offers from smaller German clubs and MLS

Zelalem being linked with Gladbach now, but even if he moves don't expect him to play much there this season

good move for zelalem. Hopefully he starts to produce someday cuz hes got good skillz. Just look gnabry - hes a former arsenal product. Look at pogba and rossi..they couldnt get playing at manu so they also had to move on...



Boyde should stay in germany...but im not sure if he can still play after ****ing up his knee 2 yrs ago
