The Guardian in the UK has the report. The Los Angeles Galaxy frontman possibly headed on loan to Everton in the EPL.
Landon Donovan, the apple of manager David Moyes eye over in America FC East (and also this authors EPL team selection).
This move for Donovan makes so much sense that I jusasdkhlgndfs,m.sadfd….sorry about that just fell out of my chair.
Here’s the quick bullets that just exploded out of my head:
♦ Landy gets to go to a club with not 1, not 2, but now 3 Americans already in its “possession,” albeit Tim Howard the only one not relegated to reserve duty. Note, Lando gets to keep tabs on the likes of Cody Arnoux and Anton Peterlin’s progress as well.
♦ He plays for a team known for it’s work ethic….as is Donovan.
♦ LD10 gets to play against all of the defenders he might face-off with in Game 1, World Cup 2010. Bridge, Brown, Glen J, Terry, Lescott, Ledley….all of ’em.
♦ He slots into a side with the talented Louis Saha, Yakubu and Jo up top, not to mention Froman Fellaini playing the hub in the middle…so he’s not moving up the pitch and he’s got some guys that can do damage above him.
♦ Lastly, playing time aplenty! Mr South Africa Steven Pienaar, Mr. Youngster Jack Rodwell, please report to the bench.
A good move for US Soccer, Donovan and USMNT “training”…..if it happens. And, Everton do need it to happen.
