Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Ream, Richards, and more

Fulham enjoyed a winning end to the English Premier League season on Sunday with veteran defender Tim Ream earning his first start since February.

Ream started and played 90 minutes as Fulham defeated Luton Town 4-2 at Kenilworth Road. The U.S. men’s national team centerback made his first appearance since Feb. 17, winning six duels, making four clearances, and drew two fouls.

The Cottagers failed to win any of their last four matches prior to Sunday’s season finale, but concluded their campaign in a big way to finish 13th in the league table.

Ream will now hope to be part of the USMNT’s Copa America squad this summer on home soil.

Elsewhere in England, Chris Richards and Crystal Palace earned a top-half finish. Auston Trusty and Sheffield United lost at home to Tottenham.

In Germany, Kevin Paredes scored for Wolfsburg. Brenden Aaronson helped Union Berlin fight off Bundesliga relegation. Lennard Maloney went the distance for Heidenheim.

Elsewhere, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Celtic lifted the Scottish Premiership title. Bryan Reynolds and Westerlo fell at home. Alex Mendez featured for Vizela. George Bello and LASK were hammered by Red Bull Salzburg.

  1. Houston born 31 yr old manager Fabian Hurzeler leads St. Pauli to the 2.Bundesliga title and promotion. Only spent a few years of his childhood in the US, but still speaks of how he is part American. He’s apparently vacationing this summer here to take in Copa America. Maybe he’d like to live here full time in say August 2026 thru July 2030.

    • Before Julian Green there was Fabian Hurzeler.

      Another Bayern 2 product, he was going to solidify the USMNT midfield. Then injuries set in. Glad to see he’s doing well.

      He’d be affordable for the USSF, so there is that.
      If you’re superstitious St. Pauli is Paul Caliguri’s old club so that’s a good omen.

      • He’s being likened to Julian Nagelsman, I don’t think he’ll be affordable for long. Joe Gyau and Fafa Picault also are former St. Pauli players as is Philadelphia Union midfielder Leon Flach.

      • “I don’t think he’ll be affordable for long.”

        That’s why you get him on the come.

        Gregg should be fine but if something screws up at Copa America it’s nice to know that guys like him are out there.

    • That is fascinating.

      There’s always been a certain number of dual-nationals but in an increasingly global soccer community, there seem to be a whole lot more of them…and the US is getting them now whereas we didn’t get, say, the likes of Giuseppe Rossi or Neven Subotic in years past even when culturally they were more American than anything else? So why not a dual-nat coach, especially one who is clearly interested?

      • “the likes of Giuseppe Rossi or Neven Subotic in years past even when culturally they were more American than anything else”

        I’m not sure you could have made that case when they made their decision. “culturally more American” WTF does that mean?

        Rossi made it crystal clear from the first minute that his choice was going to be Italy in great part because it meant so much to his Dad. At that time it was never close to being any kind of contest.

        “So why not a dual-nat coach, especially one who is clearly interested?”

        What matters more, that they are dual national or that they are a good coach and an improvement on what you have now?
