Who are the "Yankees" of "football"? Manchester United?
I have to say. It's amazing what a difference a year makes. Not a criticism of the poster, since this was the prevailing opinion of Donovan last May. But, he had a great Confed Cup, and was fantastic during his time with Everton, especially against the best competition (even if he did miss an easy goal that cost them a point).Donovan gets plenty of attention on the Galaxy in MLS, but never could cut it after several stints in Europe. Guess I never understood the fascination or the hype.
And the only question for him now is if the Galaxy will sell him for reasonable price. Because most Premier League teams would gladly have him on the wing (especially Everton)
If memory serves, he mainly got the opportunity at Everton due to a mass of injuries. Give him credit that he took advantage of it, but I hope wherever he decides to go that it's to play and not to sub.
I guess I got lucky, but Inter's already won Coppa Italia, one win away from the Serie A championship and, most importantly, one win away from the Champions League trophy. Hell of a time to be in Milan - Forza Inter!
