Apparently Donavon was voted MVP for the USA this year with 3 goals and 9 assists for the national team. Interesting that Jimmy Gabriel suggested him to Moyes about 5-6 years ago but Moyes wasn't impresses,

Maybe he's improved in those 5 or 6 years.
He'll definately offer us options, but we'll have to see just how good he is.

Doubt he'll be as dominant as in the US, but he's a player at the international level, the squad will be better with him than without him for sure. Not sure where we'll play him, another one like Billy in that respect for me.

We're not signing him, we're taking him for like 10 or so games. He's not a player that will move us forward as a club, but he's good enough to ease the pressure of the current injury crisis.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

Moyes will want to blood him slowly so he can get used to the pace of the English game, maybe a few games in the reserves for fitness. By that time he might of left before anyone saw him.

Hes already fit so shouldn't need to play for the reserves. I reckon a couple of subs appearances and then his first start depending on how the squad is shaping up at the time.

As he's a mainly a striker I dare say he'll take the Yak's place on the bench. Or the hapless Bilya.

You may probably be right, I don't expect Moyes to play Donovan so soon, Moyes doesn't like introducing new players straight away. But at least there is cover for Yakubu but Donovan may contribute more, maybe a goal or two.

It will be very interesting to see where he plays for us.  From what I can gather he can play either up front, left midfield or just off a main striker like Cahill does.

I imagine that it will depend on where our next injury happens as to where he plays probably....

We really do need him to hit the ground running and scoring. This makes for some depressing reading, so let's hope he can prove to be a success:






The only other team with a grand total of 00,000,000.00 to spend is... Pompey.

What paper is that from Callum?

It does make depressing reading - how on earth are we in such a mess that we lag behind everyone else like that?

We don't need him.If he was ever going to be an EPL player he would have done it years ago. Now that our injured players are beginning to come back,whose place is he going to take? We need quality!
