Landon Donovan of Everton and the USMNT: Salute to Americans Serving (Playing) Overseas

Landon Donovan has arrived in the English Premier League to play for Everton and is the American National of the week (we really need to get a better name for this award). The star of the US Men's National Team (USMNT) started his Everton career off with a nice assist on a corner kick. It seems that David Moyes, Everton's manager, has been watching the film on Donovan. He put him out on the right wing and had him run at Arsenal's defense. Donovan's speed gave the opposition trouble all night. It was an impressive debut for Donovan and after pointing out his missed penalty kick and calling for Clint Dempsey to be the next Captain of the USMNT (by the way, why didn't anyone argue for Tim Howard as the next captain?), all credit to Landon for impressing everyone on the night. A strong showing over the next three months will go a long way toward increasing his confidence as he plays for the USMNT at this summer's World Cup.

  1. A 25 minute video? Good thing that assist was in the first couple of minutes. Donovan did have a good first game. I agree that a strong showing will help him with the World Cup. Still won't explain why he chooses the MLS over the EPL. Regardless, he is a good player and I hope he makes a good showing this winter.

    Not sure why we didn't suggest Howard. He's as good of a captain as any other player and just as deserving.

    How can you not like Weekly Salute? How about expatriate award?

  2. Like you're really that busy. The last 10 minutes are interviews anyway.

    Tim is strong leader. He's a big reason that Everton's defense is still half decent considering they lost Lescott and have major injuries to other players.

    Weekly Salute is fine. I just feel the need to write, "Landon, we salute you!" at the end of the post but it would be too silly to write that phrase. Maybe I'll put "Cheers!" You can also never go wrong with "Huzzah!"
