Beckerman, Johnson, Torres look forward to USA-Mexico friendly



  1. Yeah for sure! That practice facility is dope! Agree that Beckerman is very articulate. Torres surprised me! You’d think for how much time he spends down South that he’d have more of anaccent but sounds straight from good ol boy Tejas!

  2. The last return date I remembered was October this year. But I’m thinking they will be very conservative.

    Bolton has kept a pretty good squad together and the thinking seems to be when Stu and Lee return from injury it will be like buying a new midfield.

    Obviously promotion is job one.

  3. I don’t know. They must have old Behind the Crest videos. I remember Fabian having much more of an accent in interviews around the time of the A & B qualifier.

    Of course,it is likely that he now feels much more at ease, though how that would impact his accent I’m not sure. Anyway he seems quite happy and at ease.

  4. Based on the video we could see this:


  5. Off topic- but I was just watching some old videos to get pumped up and saw Holden and Davies. I’ve come to terms with Davies not making it back as he cant even get regular time with club right now but does anyone have an injury/timeline update on Holden getting back to training with Bolton?

  6. Pretty interesting note:
    In that 0-0 draw in 1997 WC qualifying match in Azteca, the U.S. was reduced to 10 men when Jeff Agoos was shown a red in the 32nd minute for elbowing Mexico’s Pavel Pardo. The USA also was without four regular starters in goalkeeper Kasey Keller (thumb) and midfielders Claudio Reyna (suspension), Tab Ramos (ACL) and Earnie Stewart (calf).

    Nov.2 1997

  7. If you hear him talk about Mexico, you can hear the respect but also rivalry in his voice/words.

    Maybe I’m projecting but I took that away from his soundbites.

    Also, people may think I’m crazy but I’d take 11 Beckerman’s over 11 Chandler’s every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Say what you will but I truly mean that.

  8. Yah. I expected a few more “Dude”s and “Right on”s in his dialect. Somewhat disappointed that he sounds like an Ivy League English major.
