Et tu, Mr. Sips. For four years I've seen "Clint looks tired. Clint looks uninterested. Clint's playing too much football." And just exactly what has the done for those four years.
As for yesterday's match -- like the previous two where he "looked tired, uninterested" -- every single real scoring threat involved him. He was the best player on the pitch yesterday, but it appears as if when he doesn't actually score then he's had a poor game.
And, as has been pointed out before, Clint will be involved in World Cup qualifying against monster teams like Andorra, The Faroe Islands, Leictenstein, and Cyprus. [No, wait a minute, that's in England's group.
Truth is that every summer he plays football, every fall Fulham fans say, "Well look at him; he must be tired." And every season he does more for the club than he did before.
And, I am NOT in the mythical DDL. He's never been my favorite Fulham player. I just don't want him to be treated poorly should he leave this summer, because we'll be telling ourselves, "He didn't really work hard when he was with us. Remember that sullen look and how uncaring he was? Now he's with Arsenal, he's working hard." And then we'll boo him. I know we will.
Contrast that with the hated Liverpool supporters giving huge applause for Murplhy and Riise yesterday.
Rant over. I feel quite tired now. perhaps it's too much football.
