Landon the Legend…

2014 MLS Cup - New England Revolution v Los Angeles GalaxyIt’s Landon Donovan’s last press conference. He has just won another MLS Cup with his beloved LA Galaxy. It’s a fairytale ending. He’s had a picture book career. He has given everything to club and especially country.

What an honor to see him play his last professional game. What a privilege to be at his last LA Galaxy presser. He looks tired. He’s ready to walk off into the sunset as a champion.

They love me, they love me not…

Emmanuel Adebayor hasn’t played it particularly smart during the off-season. He has come across as a greedy guy and somewhat insincere. Perhaps he thinks we’re all stupid. He pledges his future to Arsenal and then in the same breath, whores himself out to the highest bidder because the club won’t match his demand to quadruple his wages. Seems like he’s been spending too much time with Mathieu Flamini and Alexander Hleb.
