[AMERICANS ABROAD] Just days after Everton manager David Moyes said he still had faith in American keeper Tim Howard, the Toffees lost, 2-1, at home Sunday to Arsenal, snapping their seven-game unbeaten streak in the English Premier League. For all the weekend action involving Americans abroad ...
Moyes acknowledged that Howard was tired after representing the USA in the Confederations Cup in 2009 and the World Cup in 2010, but he is sticking with him despite the presence of Slovakian Jan Mucha.
Howard has been criticized for mistakes that cost Everton points against Blackburn, Spurs and Blackpool.
Everton is tied for 13th after 13 games.
Saturday's American Abroad:
Stuart Holden's first English Premier League goal for Bolton Wanderers was the difference in its 3-2 win at Wolves on Saturday.
Holden scored against his 2010 World Cup teammate Marcus Hahnemann in the win that moved Bolton into a tie for fifth place. He also assisted on Swede Johan Elmander's brilliant second goal.
Bolton Wanderers highlights (while available):
Michael Bradley scored in Borussia Moenchengladbach's 4-0 win at FC Cologne in their bottom-of-the-table clash.
Bradley had 'Gladbach's second goal in a four-goal blitz in the final 45 minutes that moved it out of last place and dropped Cologne to the bottom.
