9 weeks ago, critics were just waiting for Landon to fold under the pressures of the EPL furthermore proving the failures of the US Soccer youth programs. Since then, Landon Donvan has scored twice with three assists including two gimmes feet from the goal line and countless other scoring opportunities. Evertonians now see what Galaxians have been living with for the past 6 years. Only now does the world see this as well. Landon Donovan is world class. Previous situations where Landon was on loan were not fitting. He was too immature by his own accounts with Leverkusen and felt unwelcomed in Munich. Everton welcomed with open arms, Donovan obliged. It's really unfortunate he signed that extension with MLS earlier this year. Now there are reports that Chelsea wants him in the summer transfers. We can only hope for US soccers sake that he can remain that form with the Galaxy, provided a strike is avoided.
