Remember when I told you to keep paying attention to U.S. soccer in between World Cups? Well, if you’re paying attention to the English Premier League right now, you might notice Clint Dempsey’s name popping up among some pretty prestigious strikers.
You might remember Dempsey from the 2010 World Cup as the guy who put one by a brick-handed English goalie, or just as the guy who took more bumps, bruises, and bloody noses than any Yank since De Rossi elbowed McBride.
Now, the MNT Blog notes that Dempsey is among the top 10 scorers in the EPL so far this season, tied at nine goals with the likes of Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres.
