  The second coming??
For Galaxy fans, the arrival of Landon Donovan coupled with the departure of Carlos Ruiz was tough. After all, Ruiz was a fan favorite at the HDC and Donovan...well, fans in LA didn't exactly see him as the great savior of soccer in this country that the media painted him. Of course, his goals against LA, particularly in the playoffs, didn't help that.

The fact that he's a quitter and goes running home to mom once the going gets tough (as soon by this latest move of his) makes things even more difficult for LA fans who've put up with prima donnas like Luis Hernandez the last last few years.

Even after his two goal performance on Saturday, I'm still not sold....but I'm sure I'll soften my opinion of him as long as he continues to produce.

We'll see what happens as time goes by on this one. Of course, one thing working in Donovan's favor is he'll have plenty of time to win the Galaxy fans over. Rumor has it he's on a 10-year contract.

Agreed -- he's still a nancy boy, but as long as he produces, that will stave off the jackals (and me) from criticising him. I know, it's unfair, but that's what he gets for being such a mamma's boy and crying all the way home from Germany.
