Thu, 30 Aug 2018 08:24:00 PDT

Clint Dempsey's former teammate and former manager are joined by the rest of the FC panel to reflect on Clint Dempsey's stellar career. Here are the best ten of the 57 goals that Clint Dempsey scored for the Seattle Sounders in his career. ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol react to Clint Dempsey's retirement after a 15-year professional career. With some players, counting down their most memorable individual moments is a disservice to their overall bodies of work. Soccer is a game of subtleties, and to pick out only the highlights can feel like an oversimplification -- consider guys like Xavi and Andrea Pirlo, for whom the appeal was their ability to control entire matches as if holding an invisible string. With Clint Dempsey, it feels more apt. For Dempsey, who retired on Wednesday and finishes his career tied for the all-time goal-scoring...

The stage, the spectacle made it possibly the greatest goal ever scored. But for all the beauty of that goal and how it will undoubtedly be admired throughout the ages, it wasn't even the most important scored that day. That accolade rests with Tom...

Sun, 27 May 2018 06:54:00 PDT

Back in the autumn, promotion looked not so much a distant dream as a laughable fantasy for Fulham, languishing in the lower half of the Championship with internal disagreements making anything beyond survival look like the height of optimism.

Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon compared to Bale, but more like Salah or Sterling

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 05:53:00 PDT

The key to Premier League promotion? Find a style that works and stick to it

Fri, 31 Mar 2017 12:41:00 PDT

Newcastle are a Premier League veteran, and thanks to Rafa Benitez, they're close to a return. Back in September, it seemed as if a wearying and familiar pattern would repeat itself. Garry Monk didn't get off to a good start at Leeds, and with the team in the bottom three of the Championship before a 2-1 win over Blackburn, the vultures were circling. One vulture in particular: According to a number of reports, Monk was to be the latest manager sacked by notoriously impatient owner, Massimo Cellino. Skip forward six months, and Monk is still in situ while Leeds are fourth and looking...
