What’s Up With Clint?

Dempsey: All cylinders go this morning

Dempsey: All cylinders go this morning

We are nary a few hours into the EPL season (so excited) and we are just 30 minutes into the Portsmouth-Fullham game and US left winger Clint Dempsey has looked extremely active this morning and already assisted to Bobby Zamora (guy has a cannon) for a 1-0 Fullham lead.

Clint looks the inverse of what we saw on Wednesday–active, engaged and playing with purpose.

We’re going to do an in-depth piece before the El Salvador game, but let’s get it started with your thoughts.

Is Clint just bored with the U.S. strategies and tactics?

Is he just saving himself for next year’s Cup?

Tell us what you think and we’ll research.

    2) Clint is uber frustrated with the tactics of Bradley. His style of play is being stifled.

  3. Our possession was horrible. Deuce has flourished under Coach Hodgson’s system of strong defense with an attractive passing style.


  4. […] few days ago we launched a little primer entitled, “What’s Up With Clint?,” to get us thinking on how the still very young (CD is all of 26 years old) and in the prime […]
