How nice would it be for U.S. international Clint Dempsey to cap off his momentous week with a landmark goal today?
Dempsey is looking for No. 50 in a Fulham shirt. If he gets it today, Dempsey will reach the milepost against his buddy and U.S. teammate Tim Howard. Either way, it’s been a big week for the Texan, coming after finishing fourth in balloting for the prestigious Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year Award.
Dempsey was typically low key about his individual achievement. “Now it’s about finishing the job off and getting as many points as we can from these last four games to try and finish as high up the table as we possibly can,” he told Fulham’s official website.
The game (Everton vs. Fulham) would be Saturday’s pancake special on Fox Soccer Channel but there’s a big one being shown instead. Which one was it … let’s see … yes, here it is:
Newcastle vs. Wigan?
Well, I’m sure FSC has a good reason for bringing that one live, then showing Everton-Fulham at 5 p.m. ET on tape-delay.
