Is anyone else a little worried that Clint Dempsey might not be able to play a full part in our Premier League opener against Portsmouth on Saturday?
All the indications are that Bob Bradley is planning to use Dempsey as the United States attempt to break their Azteca duck in their big World Cup qualifier against Mexico tonight. The match won’t start until late tonight our time, plus there’s all the jet lag and altitude to factor in.
It’s not as if Clint’s had a quiet close season either. This article hints at Roy Hodgson’s frustration that Dempsey hasn’t been able to have as much of a rest as he’d have liked over the summer. So, will he be right for the game? If Clint doesn’t start, how will we line up at Fratton Park on Saturday?
