I’ve always fancied Dempsey’s international play, and last year, when I had heard that we got him during deadline day, I almost soiled myself due to excitement. I, like most US fans, are hopeful that Dempsey has a great club season to build on, going forward into WC 2014. Albeit one preseason match, that dismal display against Black Cats today got the ol’ wheels turning. Lack of striking prowess last year has everyone at Spurs targeting a big name front man. Which, as a Spurs fan, I’m delighted about, but that will likely mean Dempsey being forced down into the depths of the roster, potentially losing out on time with the first team, fitness, confidence and ability. Speculation about Deuce departing - Although his agent confirmed he and Spurs both enjoyed working with one another last season, if Spurs sign a top front man, I can’t help but wonder if Dempsey would be better served by playing for another club this season. I’m sick with angst over this. I love seeing Deuce in a Spurs kit, but not at the expense of the aforementioned potential losses.
Any odds-makers got Spurs keeping him, and going for 20 this season? Eh?
