    And it's an ability that doesn't erode until you're into your mid 40s.

    As @ArsenalMetro pointed out, Jaqua won a 50K a couple of weeks ago, and won a 100-miler in Hawaii in January.

    He turns 38 in October

    They haven't had a match in two weeks with the league pushing everything back for Ajax plus the cup final, so no.

    Two games left in the league: away to Groningen on the 12th, home v. Feyenoord on the 15th.

    He needs to get another goal. Let's cross our fingers.

    And with 9 goals and 2 assists, he ends as the #29 top scorer in the league, right after van Crooj, Bero and Necid (all with 9/3) and right above Thy (9/1 after a Jan. transfer).
     
  13. He seems to be on his way out back to Reading.
    If he could have another year his goal tally could improve as another defender makes his way out. FC Groningen CD Jeffrey Chabot is close to an agreement with Sampdoria. With all the defenses losing players to foreign clubs it could be a goals fest for strikers next season.

    If he could get a call up frm US soccer he might open some eyes. Why no call? Does his brother or buddies follow this thread? I would like some insight.

    I don't think many of us know why. I'd have preferred him backing up Altidore and Zardes instead of Morris. But that's US Soccer for you.

    Serious answer, it looks like he's of Surinamese descent.

    Pretty sure that's just a Dutch quirk of spelling. I've seen Mac Intosch as a surname in the Netherlands. Don't know I've ever seen it hyphenated, but it's not particularly common anyway.

    @feyenoordsoccerfan will know better, but I think it's just a Dutch quirky spelling.

    Probably some Scots settled in the Netherlands and then adapted the spelling of their names so the Dutch could pronounce them more easily. Kind of similar to Russians spelling their names -ov or -off

    I did quick google and the Dutch do it either Mac Intosch/Mac Intosh or Mac-Intosch/Mac-Intosh. There are a few in Suriname as well.

    Undoubtable some Scots missionaries (probably my kinfolk) spreading the good word or running from the law... or both...

  22. During the wars with Spain and England we had many Scottish mercenaries serving in our armies. Many stayed in the Netherlands. the oldest reference I could find is from 1736, but that had already a Dutch first name, so not likely the first one. In Surinam many with that name are present, with and without hyphenation, which is more to due with the accuracy of the clerk writing down the name...or how much he had been drinking. My family name has morphed beyond recognition from what it was in 16xx till what it's now, because of how much written capital letters W, B and M looked alike.

    I do enjoy a history lesson :D and now can someone inform us of why there are several Anglo names like Joel Campbell coming out of Costa Rica?
