Clint Dempsey has joined Seattle Sounders from Tottenham on a contract that eclipses both Thierry Henry and David Beckham’s MLS salaries (we’re talking $8million-a-year if you believe the word on the wire) having completed a £6million move from Tottenham – and the fantastically devoted Sounders supporters turned out in droves to greet their new man after several days of will he/won’t he “#DempseyWatch” speculation…

Indeed, it seemed like almost everybody was excited to see Deuce drop at the CenturyLink Field – everyone except this woman, who let Dempsey know exactly what she thought of him with a rather harsh banner…


How rude.

    Haha, I like the way that woman’s banner has Dempsey’s name on it, but the way the letters line up it actually looks like she’s calling him a bad name!

  2. Jimmy H says:

    Great signing for the franchise, i’m expecting plenty of goals from the big guy. It’s great for the league as well, signing one of the best Premiere League strikers in recent years. Way to go DEMPSEY!

    @Straight Dave: Top work Sherlock…Was wondering what Chris Wright was referring to for a hot minute….;)

    I followed the whole #dempseywatch that night, tracking the flight he was rumored to be on (United 1621), even running outside to greet it in my underpants as it flew over Green Lake (here in Seattle, on the flight path). It was incredible to see the parade of improbabilities coalesce into a real story. So many doubted us. But on Saturday there he was. What an experience.

  6. TravisKOP says:

    everyone seems happy that hes there except for him. Gutted he left the premier league

  7. Ball Bag says:

    Clint the coward

  8. Jarren says:

    I’m sure he’ll do very well.


    @Straight Dave: Well done, straight to the front of the class for you! :)

    That Dempsey hip hop video was awful. He’s no John Barnes.
