As TSG ponders club ball destinations for a series of players, here’ an addendum.
Which USMNT player is primed to be the next one at the EPL’s perennial top four clubs?
Yes, we realize that–gulp–Claudio Reyna’s former jerseys, the Manchester City Citizens, might very well Tevez their way in to the top four, but let’s talk about the four clubs that really *mean* England football over the past two decades: Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool & Arsenal.
Tim Howard had his spell at Old Trafford, while outfield players Jonathan Spector, Jovan Kirovski, and even Kenny Cooper and Freddy Adu couldn’t stick with.
Over at Arsenal, the latest American to trial was Lee Nyugen!
At Chelsea would a Russian buy an American? Red Dawn is now 25 years in the past…surely that stinging has subsided?
Could the answer be none other than Captain Clutch, Clint Dempsey whose manager is rumored headed to Liverpool soon?
Who do you think? Donovan? Charlie Davies? Jozy Altidore…fun thoughts here.
