I must admit, that I don’t really follow the MLS. Not being American, I don’t really have any kind of vested interest in it. I learned a bit more about the league through the offside, and the whole Beckham going over there thing. But as D-Beck heads to Milan to try and ensure a place at the 2010 World Cup, his Galaxy teammate arrives in the Premier League, with an entirely different set of objectives.
Landon Donovan has his reputation on the line. So is he going to be a success?
His record in the MLS is exemplery and he will be lining up against England at the opening of the World Cup, so from that point of view, it’ll give us a chance to get to know him (and him us).
He’s tried to play in Europe (in Germany to be exact) and it wasn’t a success. But he seems a talented kind of guy, and its a good buy for Everton, in the sense that they need a striker.
But as you can probably tell, i’m a bit in the dark about him. So I ask my American friends – will he make it in the Prem?
