It\’s Just Like Watching the US…
So apparently Fulham manager Chris Coleman really loves the United States. Coming into this season he had Carlos Bocanegra and Brian McBride on his roster, and former MLS Kiwi Simon Elliott to boot. Now, word has come out that he\’s reached an agreement to sign Clint Dempsey – if Dempsey can win a work permit through an appeal.
But wait – there\’s more. Sky Sports is one of several news outlets reporting speculation this morning that Oguchi Onyewu is also bound for Craven Cottage.
Thinking back, however, it may not be Coleman alone – maybe it\’s Big Mo (Mohammed al Fayed). Before Coleman traded his uniform for a manager\’s suit, Fulham also played host to Eddie Lewis and Marcus Hahnemann (The Lump!).
Good luck to Dempsey and Onyewu – hopefully both moves come to pass, and I can catch up on all the Yanks Abroad while not picking up any more team allegiances.
What club currently holds the record for having employed the most Americans – does anybody know?
