Clint Dempsey Scores Goal Of The Season Contender: Video

US striker Clint Dempsey is in the form of his life right now with Fulham. The American has solidified a role in the attack for Fulham and to his credit scored one of the goals of the season Tuesday night in the Premier League game against Stoke City.

You could say that Dempsey is showing Landon Donovan how to make a mark in England. Let’s see if Donovan can come close in his debut game against Arsenal this Saturday. But to be fair to Donovan, it took a while for Dempsey to settle in at Craven Cottage.

What a brilliant goal!

    Good goal, My first thought was I scored the exact same goal this summer. My first in league play in 5 years haha

    I’d take Figueroa’s goal or Rodallega’s against Villa http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xndG5nBs0Qg (3:10) but this is quite a strike.

    Listen lads the goal of the season has already been scored and it’s not Dempsey’s striker last night.

    You seem to be forgetting a certain Maynor Figueroa!

      Great goal, no doubt. But the keeper wasn’t in position and Figueroa hit it from a deadball. Personally, I’m more impressed with a long-range blast off of a volley. Cameron Jerome’s goal was awesome, too.

    Cameron Jerome v Liverpool.

    Nice, but my vote is on the Darren Fletcher goal against Everton a couple months ago:

      Fletcher’s was an absolute cracker

    A blinding strike that is.

    Clearly all the time he’s spent with his Soccer Wave has paid off. 😉

    FSC watchers know what I’m talking about.

      So funny, Charles. I always laugh we he said “body shots . . . and more!” and points.

    Such a great goal. Best I’ve ever seen from an American in Europe.

      Great goal, but I will still pick John Harkes strike against Derby:

        Wow, that is some hit from Harkes and past a legend in Shilton… no-one would have stopped that. Two Shiltons wouldnt have.

        Does that mean Deuce is destined to be a terrible commentator as well?

        • Rob Usry

          January 6, 2010 at 12:15 am

          LOL, could you picture Deuce as a commentator? “Yeah, that was tight, yo.”

          • Eddie

            January 6, 2010 at 11:50 am

            Hahaha. So true, Rob.

    Looks prettier than it was technical. Its one of those that sits up and just invites a nice dipping hit. Great to watch though, over and over. Pity that wasnt for 3-3 else we’d be seeing it all season!

      Or if it was from a member of the big 4….

    Very good no doubt. Save something for the England game Clint!

  11. Lance

    I wonder why he wasn’t starting this game? He has been a regular starter the entire season, so why was he all of a sudden on the bench?

    • ovalball

      January 5, 2010 at 10:23 pm

      I wondered the same. Don’t want to give him too much credit, but did you notice how much the match “turned” after he came in?

    • Jason Gatties

      Dempsey didn’t start because he was due for some rest. Thats it.

      And Gaffer…took Dempsey awhile to get going? Really? Well, he had 1 goal his first season, a goal which kept us from relegation. 2nd season under Sanchez, he was our leading scorer. Roy takes over and he simply had to prove himself…which he did rather quickly. You’ll hop in here and tell me I’m wrong like you do whenever anyone challenges you, but I’ve obsessed over enough Fulham matches the past 10+ years to have some credibility here.

      • nog@aol.com

        January 5, 2010 at 11:44 pm

        So Jason, you’re saying that Gaffer shouldn’t have his own opinions? Then, you’re saying that he can’t come on here and defend his own opinions when other people disagree with him? It’s called an ‘argument’…

      • The Gaffer

        January 6, 2010 at 2:49 am

        Jason, I’m talking about his first season. Yes, his goal kept Fulham up. It was definitely very flukey and was deflected, but that’s not to take anything away from the lad. In his first season, he didn’t have the quantity of goals to set the league on fire.

        Cheers,
        The Gaffer

          But he also had to shadow McBride back then…

      We was dropped for Gera. Although now Zamora is injured (and he scored a cracker), he’ll be a sure starter.

    What a strike – let’s hope he can keep up this form at the international level.

    January 5, 2010 at 9:31 pm

    Goal of the decade contender, I’d say!
