"I just remember calling my wife and my mom and almost wanting to break down in tears because it was a tough time. Going into that last day and night there were still a lot of question marks. It wasn't clear-cut this was going to happen. Some other things came up and you're going through that struggle, which was not fun for anybody. It was difficult for Fulham and for me, not knowing how it's going to end."

-- Clint Dempsey on the prolonged transfer process from Fulham that ended with Tottenham Hotspur signing the U.S. attacker one hour before the transfer window closed last Friday, for a fee of $9.5 million. (SI.com)

    I'd like someone to explain this whole thing. I don't get what Dempsey's expectations were. He was under contract. Was something terribly wrong at Fulham? Or do footballers think that as soon as they do well they have a right to demand a transfer to a "better" team? (Or start mouthing off about how playing for said team "would be a dream", a-la Radamel Falcao?) This hardly seems fair to the current club, and I guess I'm a little disappointed that Dempsey and his backers think he was entitled to a Liverpool transfer.
