I thought he re-signed with Nurburg. Extended his contract.
I wonder if this has to do with the relationship between Chandler and his American dad. According to his wiki page, his dad left him at birth. It's not clear that Chandler still speaks to his father, or has even met him before. That in itself might have played a contributing factor to his decision. Though it's probably something he should have thought about before accepting his first call-up. But Chandler may have been too excited at the initial call to fully digest all the long-term implications.
Jermaine Jones at least spent a few years in Chicago growing up, and probably still has some relationship with his father. I have no knowledge of whether Fabian Johnson, Daniel Williams, or David Yelldell were raised by, or still talk to, their American servicemen fathers. As for Morales, I'm not sure if his citizenship is through his mom or dad.
Morales' dad is a US citizen, married to his mom, lives in Berlin and is a passionate fan of the Peruvian national team.
Stuttgart were interested in him but signed an extension with Nuremberg.
This is apologetic drivel. Everyone who questioned Timmy is being proven right. These are not friendlies- not even the gold cup, these are world cup qualifiers. He refuses to be cap-tied. I don't want him near our team, ever.
Chandler lived with his father for a few years in New York when he was little.
Yup, you're right. Don't know how I missed that.
I want him and I hope he sticks with the US.
Do you have a source for this?
Well, he doesn't want or care about you, as an American fan and citizen.
I knew something unusual was going on. All this time, him denying callups and having mysterious injuries only to play for his club the same weekend, but I always blamed his club. Now we know it's Chandler himself.
I read it last year but forgot what website I'll try and find it.
I think Chandler should be locked out of the USMNT for at least until October 2012, when the first round of qualifying ends. We can revisit the issue then. If he still does not want to participate, then he should be forbidden from joining the team for the rest of the cycle, and that includes World Cup in 2014 if we qualify. I don't want him on the WC team if he wasn't willing to go through the struggle of qualification.
"Hello dear Club (Nürnberg) Fans. Tomorrow I'll go a few days to the beach. What have you planned for the fooball- free time? I'm already looking forward to next season, and am naturally keeping my fingers crossed for the German NT at the Euros.
He should be locked out for this cycle. We have enough right backs to get by.
At the end of the day team unity means a heck of a lot to a middle of the table squad, and that is what we are. By allowing someone back in who has not shown full commitment, you run the risk of alienating men who would give their left teste to play for the team. I don't think he can play for Klinsmann. The next coach can give it a run, but by that time we may have moved on ourselves.
What if he goes to Florida, just not to US camp?
It's really disappointing. I thought he would be a huge addition as right back. But when you consider he's just 22 and basically German, it's pretty understandable. Like Bunbury. It's hard to imagine him not accepting a call up from Germany, but still it's his decision to make. However imo, we're approaching the time where he won't deserve a call up for Brazil 2014 if he doesn't help in qualifying.
edit: Jermaine Jones sold me when he scored and saluted the troops. Maybe we won't see something like that from Chandler, but at this point with JK's language I'd consider him OFF the team.
Lol, you remind me of a woman with battered wife syndrome. Always coming back for more abuse. Don't know what is good for you.
He only hurts us because he loves us. Just wait, he'll change, he'll change...
Jones is in contact with his dad. Does anyone know the relationship between Tim and his dad??? Makes a difference.
You are thinking like a fan. Soccer is a business for these players. If he thought it would advance his career he would play for the US. This has nothing to do with his dad.
Chandler > Lichaj
You're pretty funny. This sort of made me laugh.
PS. Any lovely frauleins at the beach that need some help with sun lotion, hit me up.
Not totally true. Look at the Bunbury switch story, was that really just a marketing job? I don't think so.
