Dodging a Bullet
This is really good news. Clint Dempsey will not need surgery on his injured knee, which means he should return before the World Cup. As I said before, Clint is not always as spectacular for the US as he is for Fulham (part of that I think is due to positioning), but his loss would be a huge blow to the US in the World Cup Finals (this is a solid take on the situation). With projected starters Charlie Davies and Oguchi Onyewu already questionable for the WC, this US team cannot afford to lose too many more guys, so consider us lucky for Deuce avoiding the knife.
