We are just saying if he does play good shouldn't he st least be in consideration ?? I mean if JK calls in players like Beckerman and Wondo one just has to wonder. Specially if he is scoring goals and assisting... Heck if Galaxy wins MLS cup every Donovan doubter and hater here should retire from YA.

Nah Donovan isn't going to be back with USMNT. No need. The US has moved on from him. Just let him have a few more years with the Galaxy.

What does it say about the state of some of the youngsters on the Galaxy that they feel that a guy who is 34, and hasnt played in almost 2 years, is a better option than them. Pretty pathetic. How isnt Jamieson ready to step up and fill the void? Or Villareal. He's now 22. People were saying how good he was going to be. Kanoia Bailey? Mendiola? Someone else from LA II? Isnt that the point of having the USL team affliiated to you? None of these guys are good enough to play in MLS that they need to go out and bring in Donovan. Why are they on the team then. Thats pretty sad.

None of them is a draw like Landon.

MLS doesn't have the massive tv, advert, commercial etc income that other leagues have so gate attendance is crucial. Or someone can tell me I'm wrong and that they've had their season tickets sold out already and are making sufficient revenue otherwise.

I mean the Arriola case is point blank how Mls is failing the kids, and Galaxy were the owners of Arriola. He's a good, very good talent, and Galaxy could care less about giving him time as a youngster.

""In terms of playing and soccer-wise, I'm not sure it's the best place for him," Kirovski said. "Everybody has their own opinion and own ideas, but we feel that we have a program that is set up for him to develop that would be better for him. But that's up to him, and he decided to go down there.""

No Jovan, if he would have stayed with Galaxy, guaranteed he would NOT have had 57 games to his name, professionally at this point.

Arriola finished the 2012 season, was invited by Tijuana, Galaxy got nervous and offered him a contract that probably didn't come close to Tijuana, and without the added benefit of first team football. Reactionary at best.

He's definitely a bigger draw but LA is practically guaranteed a playoff spot. Wouldnt it be in their best interest to give those kids some minutes now to see what they have? Then when Gerrard and possibly Zardes come back you are a stronger team. Also LA is drawing almost 25k per game to a 27k seat stadium. Maybe they get an extra nationally televised game but again is that worth it? Seems like some poor decision making.

Again I think this is a great move for MLS as you state, but from an LA Galaxy stand point its pretty dumb

I think LA Galaxy, business owners, care about getting more business. I think they think it's great, and in the end it might be great for them, but for the USSF and their point of view, and us nuts, yea, it' snot good. Youngsters should be filling up opportunities.

Well, I haven't seen him out running on the beach in the last 2 years. He better not be a fatass or I'm going to boo him.

And, yeah, I get it's a business and all and they'll sell a few #26s, but I think it's a good soccer decision. Who's a better guy for a little cover w/ all of the injuries to maybe come in for 20 mins?

Why not dunlopp? People here count with Gatt, Gyau, Aaron, and Boyd still for the team. Even when they were injured. He has been out almost as much as Gyau and Gatt and people here name them to their list. Why cant we name LD to November's games? And dont give your stupid, hateful, and bitter response. You remind me of the song Stan from Slim Shady. I picture you as the little brother who waited in the blistering cold but was ignored. Why do you hate LD so much? Almost as much as you dislike Admhgs.


How do you guys not recognize this guy as adms?

My only issue is that we keep hearing that the Galaxy youth academy is one of the best in the country? Yet where are these youth players? The Galaxy had to bring a guy out of retirement to offset a Zardes injury. Galaxy fans really shouldn't be excited about that. You should be worried that your head coach doesn't believe in any youth players currently in your youth system.

Landon is clearly not ready. He looked timid and out of shape. Looked like more of a testimonial match with him out there.
