Dempsey put up for sale by Spurs??


LINK

interesting development. I've long been concerned about his PT for this upcomming season. I don't think there's any doubt it was going to be cut drastically.

WOW, that is surprising in some ways and in some ways not. I hope he lands in a good place.

re: Dempsey put up for sale by Spurs??


As a Spurs fan, I'm okay with this. I didn't like his PT situation. And he was kind of a weird fit.

It reminded me of the Jeremy Lin move for the Rockets. Almost just a move to make a move.

Yeah he doesn't really fit in as long as Bale is still there.

Haven't really thought about him going to Everton, but that would be a good move imo.

Also according to the link:

quote:

Tottenham are ready to give Aston Villa the pick of Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Scott Parker, Jake Livermore or Tom Huddlestone as part of any deal for Christian Benteke.


If there is any truth to that, one would assume Dempsey is also part of that list. Villa would not be a bad place for him.

Apparently Villa don't want a player swap in the Benteke deal, they just want money.

Lambert wouldn't be interested in any of those players. I don't see a deal getting done with spurs personally.

Eta: we're only paying Benteke £20k a week for the next 3 years so its very easy for us to just let him rot.

re: Dempsey put up for sale by Spurs??


This post in the SBI comments section kind of summed things up well:

quote:


Dempsey might be more of a victim of change in tactics for Spurs with AVB moving the team to a more traditional 4-3-3 than losing out to “better” players. With the central midfield being Sandro, Paulinho, and Dembele, and the two wings reserved for Bale and Lennon, there’s just not a place for Dempsey particular skill set (supporting the primary striker, arriving late in the box, clutch goals and a high work rate).

Thing is, AVB, really likes Dempsey…he consistently started him last season when fans were clamoring for “sexier” options like Holtby and Siggurdson. Even though he came up with big goals, the fan base prefers a more swashbuckling type, and Dempsey’s directness and grit never really endeared him to the faithful.

I think he’ll stay on and be used as a super sub and covering for the wingers when injury hits, but I just don’t see him being deployed as a starter in Spurs new system.

Or Levy will sell him 5 minutes before the deadline closes.

I think we would all rather see him getting regular playing time at another club but at least he will see some time as a sub and rotation player if he stays at Spuds.

Dempsey would likely lose the armband if he is nothin more than a super sub leading to the WC.
