  1. How good is this Johann Smith character?

    Any future with the US MNT in the 10' World Cup? Same with Ferrari and Alitdore, although, I have a pretty good idea what Altidore's talent is.

  2. Smith did well with Bolton's Reserves and then went on loan somewhere and was impressive. Ferrari is playing Serie A which in itself says a lot. Akpan is another kid to watch.
