TSG will try to get a representative to Princeton tomorrow. The media is allowed 15 minutes to spend with the players at the end of practice–thus it didn’t warrant a trip from the West Coast for yours truly–and the media observes from the edge of and outside of the practice grounds.
• From MLS Insider: Buddle, Donovan and Torres are undergoing physicals in Philadelphia.
• From Grant Wahl on player impediments on Twitter:
» Tim Howard did not train today for US. Slight quad strain. Bocanegra and DeMerit training on own. Marshall & Johnson also training on own.
• From solid Washington Post reporter Steve Goff:
» Goff has Bradley’s comments on the Charlie Davies situation today right here. An excerpt below:
Bradley shared a conversation that he had with Davies in February.
“I told him that I felt that, if he could keep his attitude, his mentality, his work ethic, that that was going to be very important. But I also said, ‘If you can find a way to work and put everything into it and maybe not have so much to say, I think it would work for you. You don’t want to put yourself into position that you are making all this progress, and yet somehow it seems like a failure because the timing just doesn’t coincide with the World Cup. What is most important is that you can still get yourself back to the level that you were playing before the accident.’
» Goff also contributes on roster cuts:
Asked about his timeline for trimming the roster to 23, Bradley said he would like to make the cuts after the first friendly against the Czech Republic next Tuesday in East Hartford, Conn.
“Hopefully. Like anything else, you have a plan in your head, but then you have to be able to adjust at some points. But the idea would be that, by the time we get to Philadelphia, we have made our decisions and we our 23.”
Solid reporting from Mr. Goff…thank you.
A note not from camp, Alejandro Bedoya’s brother Santi is scheduled for a trial with Orebro. Ale told us about this in the interview, now it is confirmed.
