Clint Dempsey

Now back on loan at Fulham fans of the club can only hope that Dempsey does half as well as he did first time out.

Signed in January 2007 for £2million from New England Revolution Dempsey became an intergal part of the Roy Hodgson's team.

In his first half a season a the club Dempsey scored only one goal but what a goal it was. The American scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Liverpool. Despite defeat on the last day of the season victory over Liverpool kept Fulham up.

Over the next 5 seasons Dempsey would find the back of the net a further 59 times in all competitions including delightful chip from outside the box into far corner of the net as Fulham came from behind to beat Juventus 4-1 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate.
