Oh, those silly UK tabloids. Once again, they are falling all over themselves insisting that AS Roma are after Clint Dempsey, if not also set to win the race. So I checked again. And once again, I can tell you all for certain that Roma is NOT in the Dempsey race. At all.
Also, I can confirm that this Goal story from yesterday is half-correct. Yes, it was Fulham that decided Deuce should not travel on their preseason trip to Switzerland. But no, as I said last week, Dempsey did not beg out of the trip. That oft-reported tidbit is not true.
