Eddie & Clint get minutes for Fulham
Eddie Johnson played 45 minutes in Fulham’s 1-0 loss to Portsmouth today, coming in as a second-half sub. Clint Dempsey came on in the 60th minute and finished the match. No neat prose from Fulham FC praising the Americans’ work this match, but there’s always next time. I’ll admit a little relief that Mark Hughes gave Eddie significant playing time in his first match as head coach. Eds. Note: According to The Mirror, today was Hughes’ first match as Fulham’s boss, but the team won’t begin practicing with him until Monday. He spent today’s match as a spectator in the Director’s Box.
