Can you guys really name a player today that's as important to his team and country like Donovan? Maybe Zlatan.

MLS teams actually compliment Donovan. Imagine Bayern building around Landon? Robben is playing Landon's role. Replace him Donovan they would be still the same team.

I wonder where Bruma's going to end up. Apparently Monaco has made a 16 million dollar bid.

Everyone could see Donovan's all-world level talent early, he showed it in 2002 when he destroyed every team he came up against. Bayern wouldnt have bought him if they thought he was talentless.

His only issue was confidence back then. 2002 he played fearless and destroyed everything, then the pressure came and he buckled. It's only the past 3 years he has become fearless, this is not such a problem though he can play at peak level for many more years then most players, due to his American fitness training, and spending most of his career in the less demanding MLS. I see him pulling a Ryan Giggs, and being relevant at international level for the next 8 years of so.

At Everton he won premier league player of the month and was very good. Everton wanted him fulltime but they couldnt afford his salary. Donovan is sacrificing his career to grow the MLS. Riquelme for example can still play top level and would be first choice at any team in the world, but has gone back to Boca. Can anyone blame him? Sometimes these genius players do not wish to play for the historically great clubs and wish to carve their own path with their home town team.
