Soccernet is reporting that Jozy Altidore’s move to Hull has been delayed by ongoing work permit issues. Funny–Soccernet also told me things were already sorted out. They cite Jozy’s Twitter as evidence: “Bad news, guys. Still in the States trying to sort things out with my work permit. There is a lil more work that has to be done.” Anyone else notice the increase in US Soccer-related stories stemming from the tweets of its young stars? Good news: I don’t have to feel so bad about sleeping in instead of getting up, going to the bar, and watching the Hull City game against Chelsea. Bad news: Jozy was on my fantasy team. Oh, well–win some, lose some.
On an unrelated note, Charlie Davies did well as a second-half substitute, scoring two goals. Unfortunately, his team fell to French giants Bordeaux, 3-2. It’s hard to imagine Charlie won’t crack the starting eleven pretty soon.
