Dempsey Shock?

Dempsey Shock?

It`s always something out there, something looming large on the horizon that a player who constantly performs well could end up leaving our club.

Clint Dempsey is one such player.

The American international, signed from New England Revolution four years ago has constantly delivered the goods and not too long ago, after a fine Confederations Cup, was linked with a move away from Craven Cottage.

It didn`t materialize then but you get the impression that Clint could well be targeted by a top team, even more so when you accept that Clint, like many others, has ambitions of playing in the Champions League, ambitions that have brought the following comments out into the open,

"Right now I`m thinking about Europe and playing in the Champions League. That`s a goal."

"Everyone wants to play at the highest level."

"If someday I get the opportunity to play for a big club in the Champions League, that would be great."

"I`d be lying if I said it wasn`t a dream. But at the same time you have to make the most of where you are."


At twenty-eight years of age Clint is probably enjoying his peak years which make those dreams of his all the more prevalent.

Could Clint be leaving us this summer?

I, for one, hope not!

Let's hope not but if he does and we get decent money for him we can't really complain he's always given 100% in a Fulham shirt but let's hope he stays.

I could see him leaving, however, the 'big club' he's referring to will likely be outside the PL. I don't think our current crop of CL contenders would be interested in him. Just being honest.

He has been great but he is not irreplaceable. I hope he doesn't go but I would hold no grudges if he decided to leave. Obviously a large sum of money would soften the blow!

can't blame a guy for being ambitious... you blame a guy for not caring when he's at your club... you cannot describe dempsey this way... i'd imagine we'd get good money for him if he left...
