Nowak on Jozy's Sub, SF on the "Disappointment"
Like many who watched last night's U-23 match vs. communist Cuba, I've been wondering what was going on with Jozy Altidore to get him subbed out at the half. Well here's half an answer from coach Piotr Nowak courtesy of New York soccer's wise-owl Micheal Lewis over at Big Apple Soccer.
"Jozy got knocked a couple of times. We talked to our doctor and talked to Jozy. Some precautionary stuff."
Huh. I wonder what that means? I guess we'll see come Thursday but I'm sure the uncertainty surrounding the young stud will only help feed the growing panic surrounding the 80's Babies match last night. Seriously, everyone using any tense of the word "disappoint" would be well served to just calm the fuck down right now. Michael Lewis included.
New York Times, calm the fuck down...twice. Soccer America, calm the fuck down (and quit trying to charge people for stories that weren't written by you). Glenn Davis, I love you but calm the fuck down. Tampa Bay.com, calm the fuck down (although you do have a point with the attendance). Steven Goff is a G-D, but I will respectfully request that he too calm the fuck down.
It's one match people. One match.
