Any gripes with this photo are going to come across as niggling, if not fanboyish, but why the flash on this one? Soft London street lighting would’ve been so much more poignant. Instead, this looks like a bad party pic.
Only it’s not. It’s Clint Dempsey and Brian McBride, two bona fide Fulhamerican legends, striking a pose after dinner in England. McBride’s over there trying to help Wembley FC (and Budweiser) make an unlikely FA Cup run, while Dempsey is trying to sort his EPL future. Different directions, but a classic Fulhamerican moment, even if only for a few weeks more.
