Jermaine Jones Watch Moves To The Pitch

JJ is back in training, hopefully for the long haul.

The USMNT injury tide is definitely turning.

According to Schalke 04, Jermaine Jones’ “injury misery seems to be at an end.” Jones resumed training on Tuesday afternoon. He only did some running, but it is a start.

With all the setbacks in Jones’ recovery TSG considers any contribution to the USMNT in 2010 from the central midfielder to be gravy at this point…but we love gravy.

That’s positive injury news from Davies, Demerit, Edu and now Jones in just the last few days. If only Gooch was as optimistic.

So, who’s next now? How about Chad Marshall?

    Jones could be the X factor for the US in South Africa.

    Will all the good injury news of late, I half expect John O’Brien to announce that he is fully healthy and ready to come back from retirement.

    Glad somebody put some version of the damn interview up! Thanks for the link.
    In light of the whole Tiger Woods thing, Charlie should be thanking his lucky stars he doesn’t meet the fame threshold for the press launching their own investigation into the accident.

    omg you have some sort of magic pixie dust over there. “Edu I’m looking at you” poof he’s training “Who’s next Jermaine Jones” poof he’s training. Now just wonder if the next person is Gooch not Marshall.

      No kidding. I want your next article to be “Lio Messi reveals American father, applying for switch to Yanks”.

      Based on the GMA interview, I wouldn’t expect any bold proclamations from Gooch anytime soon.

      Also, here is a little trivia for you guys…

      In the 1950 World Cup players only had to voice their intent to become a citizen of a particular country to be eligible to play for that country in the WC. Hence, 3 of the US players who beat were on the field for the historic win over England weren’t American citizens including the immortal goal score Joe Gaetjens.

      Gaetjens was from Haiti, never became a US citizen and even played for Haiti in a subsequent World Cup.
