[2013 IN REVIEW]Jozy Altidore finds himself in a massive slump at Sunderland -- one goal in 17 English Premier League games and several bad misses in recent games -- but he still ranks as the top U.S. men's scorer in all competitions in 2013 ahead of Mike Magee and Aron Johannsson.

Sixteen of Altidore's 26 goals came with AZ, including the winning goal in the Dutch Cup final. In 2012, Altidore scored 25 goals, all for AZ, to finish second on the U.S. scoring charts behind Chris Wondolowski, who scored 27 goals.

Of the top 10 scorers, all but Magee spent some time with the U.S. national team in 2013.

    I hope Mikey gets called into camp. We're gonna need guys who can find the net and who are hungry (i'm not sure Jozy is....still). Would love to see Herc make his way back. And maybe even Naegle.. He's got some skill too. Maybe EJ feels he has to prove something now that SEA dropped him.. Guys need to get fired up!

    Jozy and Eddie Johnson who I saw play as youth players both suffer from the same development flaw. They were never asked to make their own offense. They were asked to finish when a ball was delivered between them and the goal. Using speed and strength they both were successful in driving the ball into the goal. That is not the ball that Jozy is getting to play on both the National team and his club team. Jozy is criticized for his lack of energy. I don't think he is lazy. I think he just does not know where to position and where to run so he stands and waits for a ball that is not coming.

    Unless one is a superstar, players like Altidore need proper service from playmakers; that's not rocket science.
