Well, I hope we win it all, but I just don't see us doing much.
Either way, I predict Landon Donovan will have little to do with it. No, let me rephrase that, if we win, he will have nothing to do with it, if we lose he will have contributed to that by not being anywhere to be seen.
I really like that we have a pro league now, but I also hope that the Euro-based players shine the most and finally get people to agree that, for instance, Eddie Johnson not going to Europe and Landon Donovan failing in Germany are NOT good things, that staying in the MLS is rather than going to Europe is absolutely not a good thing.
I want to see real break-out performances from Bobby Convey, Beasley, Keller (well, he's too well established to "break-out"), Eddie Lewis, and Onyewu.
And why the hell isn't Berhalter on the squad?
I should probably start a whole new thread....
