    Went 90 in a 2-2 draw vs. Dortmund Friday. This is a guy we might need to keep an eye on for ta backup 6 on the USMNT.

    I had the good luck of being in the FCH Ostkurve to see this win against Bremen. He looked pretty good! Solid D, good positioning switching out when the center back went forward. His longer passes were somewhat off the mark. He seemed to also play in control, knowing when to slide tackle and be successful and when to pull out and avoid a card. He also doesn’t seem to try to do something beyond his level, smart, high percentage passes and no silly ball losses taking people on. Fun home win!

    Small tidbit about Heidenheim and coach Frank Schmidt that I just read. He’s been their coach since 2007 and yesterday’s game made him the longest running coach at a single team ever in Germany. Started in the local regional league and they’ve worked their way up the past 16 years.

    Maloney is in good hands, it seems!

    Only while he is playing. As soon as Maloney on the bench the coach is an idiot with anti-American agenda.

    He must’ve just passed Volker Finke who coached Freiburg from 1991-2007. And I just looked it up. It is confirmed here

    I think I heard during the last match that FCH is pretty much a German language only operation. We can start putting together the evidence now.

    Went 90 in a home victory against Union Berlin. Aaronson didn’t get in.

    The moderator at one point said Maloney has covered the most ground to date in the Bundesliga.

    This club is fun to folllow, nice little club with heart! Currently top 10 in the BL at #9 in the table.

    Maloney had 14 clearances in this game and won 7/12 of his aerials. That's what he does well. He played to his strengths.

    Most ground covered in the Bundesliga? I'm sure Gregg has!

    Very nice reward for Maloney who’s had a nice start to the Bundesliga season. He’s definitely made a positive step up from the 2nd Bundesliga. It will be interesting to see how he fits in given he’s a pure #6 with Adams out.


    It would be fun to see him makes his debut against native Germany.

    Maloney is the first Heidenheim player to ever be called up to a senior national team.

    The club is making a big deal about this.

    As they should. That’s really cool and a great answer to a trivia question. What would be even cooler is making that international debut against Germany. Has that ever happened with our plethora of German-Americans? Did any of them make their debuts against the motherland?

    That page doesn't work any more, at least for me. If you shorten the URL so that it ends with the string of numbers, it pops you over here:

    I can't easily find whatever that page said about a U.S. passport, so I guess there's a bit of YA forum history that's lost... but congrats on the MNT callup, kid!

    There have been complaints in the past WRT Adams' ability to progress the ball forward on O but even in his worst stretch I can't believe he would ever be close to the 2nd percentile. That is brutal. I have watched more of Maloney recently and I have not been at all impressed. He is slow (unlike Adams) and has almost nothing to do with helping his team get the ball out of the back. This quote speaks volumes:

    "Despite attempting nearly 36 passes per game, Maloney is in the second percentile in progressive passes, with only two of those 36 per game advancing the ball. He's also in the bottom percentile for progressive carries, as he does very little to impact the game on the attacking end."

    The USMNT already has huge problems moving the ball thru the center of the field in their opponents half. Maloney isn't going to do anything to help that.

    When I watched him live that was definitely an observation, his passing out of the back was not quality. He is pretty much a 100% defensive minded player. Hope he gets some minutes tonight, just because it is a cool story for Heidenheim, the little club that could!

    Decent US debut for Lenny tonight. Tell you what… Maloney is a big MFer. Always hard to tell when he’s playing the Bundesliga since it’s a league with sizable players. He’s not a guy I’d want to meet in a back alley. Definitely looks like guy that can handle his business. Like I said…. Not a bad debut. It will be interesting to see how he fits in moving forward.
