Americans Abroad Monday Preview: Bradley's Swansea takes on Cameron, Stoke; and more

bradley

Bob Bradley is in search of his first Premier League win, and a U.S. Men’s National Team centerback may or may not stand in his way when Swansea City takes the field on Monday.

In Bradley’s third game in charge, the Swans will take on Geoff Cameron and Stoke City in Monday’s Premier League action. Bradley and co. enter after earning a draw against Watford in their most recent match, while Cameron is questionable for Monday’s match due to a knee injury.

In other action, Fafa Picualt and St. Pauli take on Nurnberg while A.J. Soares’ AGF Aarhus faces Esbjerg FB.

Here’s a closer look at Monday’s Americans Abroad:

      I feel like so far he’s been a disaster. The fans are on him hard for illogical lineup choices. He shouldn’t see out the year, but maybe the american owners give him a longer leash.

        This line of thinking is absurd. This is the first game where they were never really in it, the problem is Swansea don’t have players to play the pressing, control tempo type of game Bob wants. It’s only been 3 games, he needs more time and the English fans are what they are, stubborn and impatient and it’s no wonder English football from its play on the field on club level and internationally is underwhelming at best. Well see what happens but it’s ignorant to say he’s been a disaster when they should have beat Watford and probably should have drawn Arsenal

        It was a pretty bad game. Swansea looked good in the first half but Hughes clearly made adjustments in the second half. Seems he out coached Bob. Also Swansea’s defense is horrible. You need defenders first, having center backs who are cultured and can distribute well is a secondary luxury in the premier league. However that same pairing held a clean sheet versus Watford so I’m not sure a change for this game would have been fair.

        Unlucky for Bob. Lost one of his best players, Naughton, at RB in the first half and it bit him (this is exactly how Bob lost USA job). Swansea goals were by Egyptian player and former Swansea player. Kind of cruel.
