I can't speak much on Postiga's club career as I've only seen Zaragoza play a few times but if you're interested, try to catch one of Altidore's next few games. You have to remember that he wasa teenager living overseas for the first time when he was at Villarreal and was probably not ready for such a high level of play. He's really improved and is playing better than I ever thought he was capable of although that's yet to translate to the national team (he's probably the third choice striker right now).
Check out a few of the goals he's scored this year:
De Rossi gets subbed off at the half, Bradley is MotM, but De Rossi is better
