I think one thing has been confirmed about Jozy and that's he is still wildly inconsistent at age 24. Yes service has been horrible for Jozy, but he has had opportunities to score goals, and hasn't.

The best hope for him is putting his head down and working hard in training because he will be playing in the championship next season.

If Poyet keeps the reins and is willing to cut his perceived losses, I could see him moving to a different league given the relegation transfers that take place on many demoted clubs.

I guess he could impress at the WC which may cause another European team to put in a bid. I just don't see Sunderland giving him up without a good transfer, and it's hard to see another European team paying a substantial transfer fee for him.

If I was a betting man, I would say he either is playing with Sunderland in the Championship, or an MLS team makes an offer for him.

Teams have seen what he can do when he is the focus of the attack. I am sure there are plenty of teams who would be willing to take a chance on him. Sunderland knows they are not going to get what they paid for him. They will cut their loses and trade him to a lower tier side. I see him in the championship or equal level league next season.

Hopefully he did what most people did and put a relegation clause in his contract. If not then he better hope the new manager (no way poyet comes back if they're relegated) plays an aggressive style and Jozy can build some confidence playing against less skilled players. If he's in championship and doesn't score at least 15 goals then he needs to give up the hope of ever being a UCL caliber striker

European teams don't trade. Sunderland will be in the Championship, so why would they get rid of him?

Most likely will take a hit of their investment as they might not be able to afford his wages, if selling him isn't an option than a loan to cover his wages is the next likely.

He could go on loan, maybe to a promotion side next season. It's going to be a hard sell. It's not just his failure with Sunderland, it's his bad track record at Villarreal, and Hull City before. Yes he had a great two years with AZ, but is that enough to persuade a team to take him on loan? He may not even be starting this summer for the USMNT which could damage his stock even more.

It would only be a MLS side buying him.....I think NYCFC makes a lot of sense, buy him as their star attractions. Buy him then loan him out.

Sunderland still have 2 games in hand don't they? They are not for sure going to be relegated. They would get rid of him because he does not fit their playing style.

Wow I just looked to see who Sunderland played the next two games. Everton and Man City. Your right, they are getting relegated! Don't see them coming away with any points from these two matches.

Jozy likely starts all games in Brazil, maybe even full 90's in each game, and does reasonably well. That will be his marketing pull to have clubs want him. If he does well in Brazil, people will forget his Sunderland season and assign blame to Sunderland itself.

If Altidore is our great hope in Brazil we are truly screwed. He has proven not to be a winner in the Prem and the real issue with him is not understanding the game. His reading the run of play is so poor the team has given up on passing to him. Seldom does he put himself into positions to score and when he has he has failed to capitalize.

That's the problem with making the jump to the big leagues to quickly... If anything he should have stayed in Holland and tried signing with PSV or AJAX even Twente. I have never jumped on the Altidore train and probably never will until he proves he can step up and play hard on a consistent basis.
