Nice header by Sacha, and great to see Jermaine rocking the party for a full 90.

Now, on to United.

worth noting that Guzan and Lichaj played mid-week though!

I guess he left the kung fu celebration back in the states

Can not understand the issue at Fulham. Hughes seems to think Dempsey is a striker only, and has him competing for playing time against Zoltan Gera and his new purchase Moussa Dembele. Clint should be in the mid field instead of the very good, but very old Damien Duff or Danny Murphy.

Maybe Bradley can take him to Villa.

Re: Holden. He played well and gave a lot of defensive effort. He tried to be too cute on the offensive side though and looked a bit slow going forward.

Re: Freidel . . uh 6-0 against Newcastle? Time for Guzan . .

Re: "Clarence Goodson 90 (own goal) in Start's 1-1 tie at Viking." Remember, joedoc taught him everything he knows!

anyone know what happened to the #10? that plays for Pachuca last night? I was watching a bit of the game, and saw him taken off the field looking like he was way out of it. Couldn't understand what they were saying, and the only replay was very inconclusive, except that no one was near him when he dropped...

Posted by: DadRyan | August 22, 2010 7:52 PM | Report abuse

I believe Dempsey was in a 5-man midfield for Fulham today. He was pulled when Hughes went for two forwards. I think.

Pachuca's Paraguay World Cup forward Edgar Benitez. He collapsed unconscious during Pachuca's 2-2 draw at home to Monterrey

glfrazier, They had Dempsey listed as one of two strikers on the Fox lineup card before the game.

Couldn't tell you. In Old-York PA (not to be confused with New York) we can't just push the magical re-scan button and all the sudden get the 'Aztec-Plus-Extra-Super-Special-Ultra-High-Definition Channel.'

What was the keeper thinking when he giftwrapped Sammy Ochoa's goal for him? WOW!

Posted by: lrg123123 | August 23, 2010 9:07 AM | Report abuse

Dempsey was definately set at striker in a 4-4-2 yesterday. Hughes went with a 4-5-1 last week, but had Gera as the 5th midfielder, and Zamora alone up top. Hughes is still experimenting, apparently. Makes me a little nervous when you experiment against Man united.

I disagree on Holden. I recall seeing only one of his passes missing the target. His distribution was excellent -- both in this match and Bolton's first outing.

I hope Bob Bradley -- or whoever coaches USA -- takes note that Holden is playing centrally. I came away from Bolton's match feeling he is better in the creative midfield role than what we have been seeing from his central MF teammates on USA.

did it make you nervous when the 'experiment' yielded a point and generally good play against one of the top teams in the league?

i think people tend to overthink these things. dempsey clearly had a lot of freedom to move around and do his thing in that game, regardless of what the 'lineup' graphics said. what's the problem?

Posted by: stairs | August 23, 2010 9:36 AM | Report abuse

The problem is that the new manager has put Dempsey in competition for playing time against 2 natural strikers. Instead, Dempsey should be looked at as the solution to the problem of the 2 aging midfielders, Murphy and Duff. And, no, I'll never down play taking a point off Man United, but the fact is the Fulham have taken all 3 from them on their previous 2 trips to the Cottage.
