Tipping the scales:
• Meanwhile, Bruce Arena invokes Dumb & Dumber’s now soccer-cliched quote that the chances are likely near one in a million. (Wish we had that one before the odds piece.)
Here’s what TSG had to say about the move back on February 11th. We’ll weigh in again when we compose research and full thoughts. It seems signing the contract might have played directly into MLS hands?
• More on Lanverton. Fox Soccer has an opinion that it was a gamble by Landon to sign a deal to secure a loan to Everton this year. I fail to see the logic behind this being a huge gamble for LD10.
Both MLS and Landon stand to benefit from a loan stint overseas. The contract that Donovan signed will only seek to enhance a potential transfer fee. Odd logic, but maybe I’m missing something here. In two years, Donovan will effectively be 30 so his marketability was now….not in two years.
