Loan watch: Clint Dempsey unavailable for third-straight game of his Fulham loan

Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey was unavailable for the third-straight game of his Fulham loan Saturday, as the last-place Cottagers took a late goal and settled for a 1-1 tie against West Bromwich Albion (a game with big relegation implications).

Clearly the coaching change at Fulham (Felix Magath in, Rene Meulensteen out) did nothing to immediately improve Dempsey’s position in the squad, which looks to have been affected by the disappointing loss in the FA Cup.

Just one game of the loan remains, plus a potential March 5 friendly with the U.S. national team in the Ukraine, before his return to the Sounders.

Here is a game-by-game look at the loan:
