The Rumor Mill Continues: Hull City and Fulham in Bidding War For Jozy Altidore?

Jozy Altidore Loan

Within the last hour MatchFitUSA.com reported (via the Daily Mail) that Hull City A.F.C. is, “ready to rival Fulham in a bid for highly-rated America striker Jozy Altidore.” It is reported that Hull is prepared to pay around £6.5million ($10.9 million) to get the deal done.

Will he or won’t he be loaned out? That is the million dollar question that has been burning up the blogs over the last two weeks.

On July 11th Goal.com reported that Jozy Altidore was to be sent on loan from Villarreal to the Greek club Olympiakos Piraeus – this did not come to fruition. Then a few weeks later on July 30th USsoccerNews reported that he may be headed to Málaga for the year, also a little rumor that never panned out.

These are only rumors and nothing is confirmed but it is safe to say that speculation regarding an Altidore loan is brewing.

Are Americans Becoming Soccer Fans?

PJ-AQ658_SP_FEA_G_20090728160353

When it comes to sports, one of the stubbornest examples of American exceptionalism is the use of the word “soccer.” Some six billion people around the world have chosen to call it “football.” We don’t care.

But in recent months, this sport—the one with the ball and the net—has taken a few steps forward. As Major League Soccer, the leading American professional league, holds its All-Star game Wednesday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah, there is growing evidence that America’s parochial attitude toward this game is quickly fading.

The Wall Street Journal says parochialism persists, but ticket sales, TV ratings and U.S. heam heroics show progress, read Are Americans Becoming Soccer Fans?
