Clint Dempsey out of LA Galaxy Clash


Dempsey NA

Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey will not take the field in Los Angeles tonight for the Seattle club’s key Western Conference match with Los Angeles Galaxy.

He apparently did not travel with the squad due to a hamstring issue.

The news will come as a disappointment to USA national team fans anticipating a Dempsey v Landon Donovan clash.

  1. Although I certainly like staying abreast on team news, was it really wise to report on this hours before the game? Seems like it gives time to Arena and co to adjust/consider changes in game plan. IMHO, keeping it on the DL for as long as possible would have been a more wise decision..

    • Sounder Maniac,

      I don’t work for the Sounders. Prost Amerika is a news site. I would have reported the same if Robbie Keane had been the player. The job of media is to report the news, not work as an adjunct to the PR of one club. Besides, we cover several clubs on here on the west coast and pick no favourites.

      If the Sounders or any other club want their chances of victory to be my responsibility, then large amounts of money will have to be involved. They all know where to find me. 😉

  2. Is Sounders Maniac the sounders communication staff nom de plume, arena will have enough time to make adjustments in warm ups, that is just a facepalm comment

  3. Or it could all be a ruse and Dempsey shows up on the field after taking a separate flight, throwing off all of Arena’s adjustments! You just never know.
