[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jozy Altidore went the distance but failed to score in Sunderland's 2-1 loss at Liverpool that extended his scoreless streak to 15 English Premier League, a span of almost four months since his first and only goal with the Black Cats.

In other action, Fabian Johnson again started for Hoffenheim at right back in its 3-1 win over Hannover 96.

    He needs to be off the USMNT. Aron Johansson should be the starter.

    Have you SEEN Sunderland play? Altidore got perhaps two touches on the ball in front of goal. It's like his teammates don't even see him waving his arm and pointing out where he'd like to receive. I would say it's because they don't have confidence in his ability to finish, but they were the same way back when Altidore first came to the team. They've never made any effort to provide halfway-decent service to him. The USMNT teammates, on the other hand, provide as much service to Altidore as they do to any other forward, and Altidore tends to do a little better with that service than his rivals on the US squad. Johansson is good, but not necessarily better.

    What on earth was Altidore doing when he climbed up on the back of an opponent near the goal? That is one of the strangest things I have seen!
