I totally agree, Dempsey is definitely good for a starting spot at Liverpool I suppose you could quibble over how he would fit into Rogers' system, but I think he's definitely good enough. One problem is age; as I asid before I think FSG are trying hard to avoid signing any more players in their late 20s. The other problem is that we already have a ton of midfielders, many of whom play similar roles. But I'd take him over Aqualani or Cole. I know how you feel. As a Liverpool supporter I would be thrilled to see him play. But I want him to go wherever is best for him personally and the USA national team. I'd even be OK with him going to Man U (as much as I hate to say it), if it meant his club and national career were better off for it. I support the national team and US players above all. Clubs are secondary to me.
