This may have been the most memorable transfer window ever for American soccer players.
Michael Bradley, only 18 months removed from being persona non-grata at both Borussia Monchengladbach and Aston Villa, engineered a transfer to AS Roma, one of the biggest clubs in the world, after a successful one-year stint at Chievo Verona.
Clint Dempsey, after scoring 23 goals for Fulham in 2011-12, made the move to Champions League contender Tottenham.
Geoff Cameron made the move from MLS’ Houston Dynamo to English Premier League side Stoke City.
Maurice Edu, Carlos Bocanegra and Alejandro Bedoya were all able to escape the disastrous situation at Rangers moving to Stoke City, Racing Santander and Helsingborg, respectively.
Brad Guzan re-signed with Aston Villa in what looked like a foolish move before he beat out Irish international Shay Given for the No. 1 spot.
Terrence Boyd made a successful move to Rapid Vienna and has been getting on the scoresheet for them frequently.
And, Oguchi Onyewu made the move to Malaga who is playing in the Champions League.
Other than Edu, and perhaps Onyewu, these moves have all worked out wonderfully and will only help the USMNT going forward.
