It's Tuesday, it's hot out, and it's another day of Musket Rounds. Today's pretty much chock full of news, including a wealth of New England Revolution talk and some news on our old friend Clint Dempsey. I've always said his best fit in the EPL would be with Arsenal, even though I can't stand the Gunners; perhaps Brendan Rodgers' new system will suit him better.
