Black Cats Analects: Age of Altidore

2982 minutes. 52 games. 9 assists. 3 goals. It looks like Sunderland's luckless American is returning home, but was his Wearside misadventure that bad? Ladies and gentlemen, this is the end of the Age of Altidore. "The fact you always have to go in every week saying, ‘I have to do something spectacular to stay in the team’ is just how it is in Europe and I think that’s been great for me." That’s Alkmaar Zaanstreek striker Jozy Altidore, in June 2012, explaining what motivates a successful centre forward in Europe.  He’d just ended the 2011/12 Eredivisie with 20 goals in...
