Carter-Vickers in US Squad
Sunday, 18th Mar 2018 17:27
Town’s on-loan Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has been named in the US squad for their friendly against Paraguay in Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday 27th March.
Southend-born Carter-Vickers, 20, who qualifies for the US via his father, has previously won one senior international cap.
US head coach Dave Sarachan has named a squad with an average of 23 years and 84 days with 17 of those selected 24 or younger.
“This match once again represents an opportunity for some new faces," he said.
"The roster has an average age under 24, so for the most part this is a group of younger players that we feel have a future with the national team along with some familiar names.
“The timing is right to give these guys international exposure, and they will certainly be tested against a strong and experienced Paraguayan team.”
US: Alex Bono (Toronto FC), Bill Hamid (Midtjylland), Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew), Cameron Carter-Vickers (Ipswich Town), Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest), Matt Miazga (Vitesse), Shaq Moore (Levante), Erik Palmer-Brown (Kortrijk), Antonee Robinson (Bolton Wanderers), Jorge Villafaña (Santos Laguna), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United), Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls), Marky Delgado (Toronto FC), Weston McKennie (Schalke), Darlington Nagbe (Atlanta United), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Kenny Saief (Anderlecht), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew), Tim Weah (Paris Saint-Germain), Andrija Novakovich (Telstar), Rubio Rubin (Club Tijuana), Bobby Wood (Hamburg).

Missing Mick by SpiritOfJohn
Just like Jonas Knudsen I find myself pining for the good old days of the Mick McCarthy era. This current wave of optimism sweeping over the club must surely end soon and come crashing down around us. One day, maybe sooner maybe later, you will also feel some nostalgia for those halcyon days under McCarthy. With these thoughts in mind, here is a tribute to the great man and his legacy:
Managerial Musings by monty_radio
With new manager speculation at fever pitch and so many alluring names who may have thrown their hats into some alleged ring, or perhaps been bumped up in the odds due to a flurry of misplaced fivers, it’s time to step back and assess the relevant claims of the hopefuls.
Wanted: An Inexperienced New Manager by JollyJourno
Usually the top attribute any employer looks for in a new recruit to their organisation is experience. Experience of doing a job at the same level, and a track record of success at that level, should surely be a guarantee of similar outcomes at a similar-sized organisation, right?
We ALL Need to Come Together, Right Now, Over Town by IamSpartacus
This in-fighting is painful to see, read and hear. The Mick McCarthy was crap/great/boring/salvationesque claims are all true, and at the same time not. It is not binary.

So, he’s gone and we can all find out what it is we’ve been wishing for.
