I want to wish Landon all the best for the coming loan to Everton FC in the EPL. I know he will have a great time maintaining fitness and getting to understand the EPL training regimen. I just hope he just keeps constantly working on attacking more frequently on frame of goal... and, of course, to score past the keeper! :-)
Hope Landon comes back to the LA Galaxy with incredible fitness, stamina, uninjured, and ready to score goals in plenty.

As far as dominating our group in WC 2010... well, personally, I think the US team is in for a very difficult battle. I do NOT think the US team is going to "out-muscle" their opponents. I really, really hope Charlie Davies gets well and starts to train in full after March 2010. And, I hope the US team gets some more younger international, namely, European club playing, (US born) talent into the squad soon!!!
