16 and Counting

After scoring two this weekend against Bolton, Dempsey hit the back of the net with a header against Chelsea on Monday.  With less then 10 minutes remaining Dempsey flicked a corner kick far post past a stunned Petr Cech.  Dempsey is now level with Demba Ba in 4th this season in the Premier League with 16 goals.  Dempsey is now proving he is not only the United States best player, but one of the Premier League’s most lethal strikers.  It has come out recently that he is delaying contract talks with Fulham to see the offers received from other Premier League clubs or if clubs like PSG will be making offers again this season.  Dempsey has made it clear he wants to play Champions League football, a place Fulham would not be very likely to ever qualify for.  With 5 games to play (Wigan and Sunderland home, Everton, Liverpool, and Tottenham away) it will be interesting to see what he will be able to come up with as a final tally being that Wigan is the only team in the bottom half of the table that they will play in the final stretch of the season.  Already the highest scoring American in the Premier League could he be the first to finish in the top 3?  Aguero is only one ahead at 17.


PSG Done Pursuing Tevez

PSG have ended transfer discussions with want-away Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez. After speculation last week that the forward may be on the move to Ligue 1 bound for Paris, PSG’s director of football made it clear that talks between Tevez and the French club have come to an end. As a result, it seems as if Inter Milan and AC Milan of Serie A are the only remaining clubs in the Tevez sweepstakes as the window of opportunity to complete the move dwindles.
