The US national team striker Aron Johannsson says that he hopes to sign for the team in 2014. He is competing for a starting spot along with Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore. Altidore has been leading the line for the US national team under Jurgen Klinsmann for more than a year, but his poor form since moving to Sunderland should be a cause of concern.
Altidore, still struggling to "Go Eredivisie" in England
It has been a challenging season for both Jozy Altidore and Sunderland this year, as Sunderland has struggled in the EPL and Altidore has not performed up to some lofty expectations that fans and pundits alike had for his first season with the Black Cats.
Following Man City's Capital One Cup win yesterday, which saw them defeating Sunderland 3-1, a giant trophy was put up overnight outside the Etihad stadium to celebrate the club's victory. Goals from Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas were enough to seal the deal on Sunday.
1. One down, four to go for Manuel Pellegrini in his challenge to win five trophies in five years for Manchester City. 2. That was probably the best possible result for Sunderland in the long-term. They played well, weren't humiliated but didn't end up with the trophy that often results in teams clocking off in [.
American fans woke up on Sunday morning hoping to see one of their favorites potentially lift a trophy, but by the time the Capital One Cup Final was over, those fans were only left with questions about one of the U.S. Men's National Team's most important players.

We'll have a full report up shortly, but for now we'd just like to congratulate Manchester City for securing the first silverware of the season beating Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley to win the 2013/14 League Cup...
We'd also personally like to thank Vincent Kompany for providing us with what must undoubtedly go down as the photo of the final.
Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho probably shouldn't be playing football today given that he's taking part in his first cup final in English football tomorrow, but Manuel Pellegrini will probably excuse him as long as he doesn't pick up an injury. The Brazilian star got himself ready for tomorrow's trip to Wembley by having a driveway [.
The 53rd League Cup final will take place at Wembley this Sunday, with Manchester City taking on Sunderland. Manchester City have had a relatively straight forward route to the final, with their 2-0 win away at Newcastle the toughest test before they went on to beat West ham 9-0 on aggregate in the semi-final.
The 2013/14 Capital One Cup final between Manchester City and Sunderland kicks off this Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London. The match will be televised live around the world, including on beIN SPORTS and DishWorld in the United States.
I've been bombarded by e-mails this week from soccer fans worrying that the final wouldn't be shown on US television or Internet.
You've probably all seen this by now, but for the few who haven't here's Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson watching his boyhood club, Sunderland, squaring off against Man City in the Capital One Cup Final yesterday amid the Mackem fans at Wembley...
We know it's not overly remarkable once you dissect things, but it always warms our cockles to see a professional footballer acting like an actual human being once in a while.
Sunderland's suits for Sunday's Capital One Cup final appearance will be supplied by Newcastle owner Mike Ashley. Black Cats fans imagining their team arriving at Wembley in Donnay shell suits, fear not: the gear isn't coming from Sports Direct. Instead, Sunderland have agreed a deal with another of Ashley's retail brands, Cruise, that will see [.
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has promised he side will be better for this weekend's Capital One Cup final against Manchester City than they were against Arsenal last weekend. The underwhelming Black Cats were torn apart at the Emirates last weekend. Poyet knows his side face an equally tough challenge against City on Sunday, but is [.
The record signing of Arsenal Football Club has been the subject of great speculation in the media and among fans recently. His performances have been studied from all sorts of angles to analyse why his performances had dropped off recently and nobody was surprised when Arsene Wenger left him out of the matchday squad for [.
Arsenal: Was the Rosicky goal vs Sunderland better than Wilshere's effort? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal's 4-1 win over struggling Sunderland at the Emirates on Saturday kept the Gunners within touching distance of Premier League leaders Chelsea, with Tomas Rosicky's fine effort the pick of the goals.
I'm stating the obvious here, but a match in the stadium is completely different from watching a match on TV. In the stadium you can see the whole pitch and you can see at a different thing than where the ball is because some interesting move is happening far from the ball [.
It is too early to judge after just one game back in the Arsenal starting line-up, but Olivier Giroud looked like a different player to the one who has been struggling recently. What we saw was the Giroud who started the season so well and made all his critics start to eat their words. And [...]
There are still plenty of people who want to shoot Arsenal down, but Arsene Wenger and his players did not give them much ammunition yesterday. The best that the doubters could muster was that Sunderland were not very good. Maybe not, but we did not give them a chance to be. Right from the start, [..
Arsenal 4-1 Sunderland Premier League 22nd February 2014
Arsenal bounced back from their midweek defeat against Bayern Munich to secure a well deserved 4-1 win against Sunderland. Mesut Ozil was not included in the match squad, apparently due to injury, but French hitman Olivier Giroud was back in action after a difficult period in the tabloids spotlight.
Arsenal are scored a beautifully 'Arsenal' goal to make it 3-0 before half-time against Sunderland. After some lovely one-touch passing, Czech midfielder Tomas Rosick played a one-two on the edge of the box and dinked the ball past Vito Mannone.

I begin this week with some words of advice. I lie here barking these words at the butler, who is typing them into his glowing briefcase. I am reclining on a chaise longue, cooled flannel upon my brow and precautionary bucket nearby. My advice is this: Never mix red wine with white wine. Specifically, do not mix two bottles of red wine with three bottles of white wine.
