    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).
     
  8. 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...

  17. 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.

    Indeed. And you can add how well he could write.

    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?
     
  20. Well, hope that was a selection point for giving him that clerk position.
    Btw. Excelsior Rotterdam, my/our Alma Mater doorstep club relegated:cry::(

    Jamaican migrant workers in the second half of the 19th century were an important part of the workforce as the relatively sparsely populated Carribean coastal region was developed. It started with the fishing, followed by the starting of coffee plantations in the 1860s.

    Not too many blacks in the plantations themselves, but the coffee was grown on the Pacific coast and the buyers were in Europe, so ports and railroads to connect the ports to the plantation regions had to be built and Jamaicans were brought in to do the navvying for those. Similar to the Irish in Britain and the Chinese in the US. Some stayed on and settled.
