    I assume nobody has ever pointed out to him or anyone else in his family that his parents are named Tom and Gisele...

    @TheFalseNine, that's what I get for posting before coffee...

    Here's a story in German about him:

    „Ryan bringt sehr viele Anlagen mit, vor allem in der Physis und der Mentalität. Er macht aber auf dem Platz noch zu viele Dinge, mit denen niemand rechnen kann, muss taktisch besser werden. Dazu kommt das Verständigungsproblem“, erklärt FCM-Coach Jens Härtel, der Malones Verpflichtung vor der Saison als „Wundertüte“ bezeichnete.

    Google Translate seems to think "Wundertüte" means "piñata," which is terrific. I guess.

    That doesn't sound too great for him. I wondered how he was gunna be doing as he came straight from college and actually is quite "old" already for someone who has not played professionally yet.
    Good luck to him!

    Yes, I think Magdeburg has problems with injuries right now and only 16 players are fit to play.

    I don't understand German, so who knows what it means that he "hofft ... auf sein Comeback":

    Magdeburg l Ryan Malone hat an das Hinspiel gegen den SV Wehen Wiesbaden besonders schöne Erinnerungen. Für den 1. FC Magdeburg köpfte der US-Amerikaner in der 83. Minute zum 1:0-Siegtreffer. Eine Woche später traf Malone erneut per Kopf bei der 2:3-Niederlage bei Dynamo Dresden. Anfang November im Heimspiel gegen Preußen Münster zog sich der etatmäßige Innenverteidiger dann einen Innenbandanriss im Knie zu. Seitdem wartet er auf sein Comeback – zuletzt war Malone aber schon zweimal wieder im FCM-Kader.

    Snip:

    3. Liga club FC Magdeburg has opted against extending the contract of American defender Ryan Malone.

    ...

    His successful, albeit highly truncated run with Magdeburg has reportedly caught the eye of other teams in the division, with Hansa Rostock, Holstein Kiel and VfR Aalen all reported to have expressed interest in a summer signing.

    According to the graphic at the start of this he played at RCM in a 4-3-1-2.

    I believe that puts him in every central outfield position since moving abroad (CF, CM, CB).
