So...America's Soccer Savior 1.0 is headed back to the Bundesliga. Landon Donovan is moving to Teutonic titans Bayern Munich at the first of the year. You remember Landy-Cakes, don't ya? Who failed twice at Leverkusen previously, a coddled homesick little bundle of douche who couldn't handle the rigors of playing in a league where he wasn't one of the top players.
And now he goes to Bayern? The same team where proven International Lukas Podolski can't even get a game? What a laugh.
Landy-Cakes is a joke. His window to prove himself, to IMPROVE himself against better competition, closed years ago. He really did have the stuff to be a world class player, his performance in the 2002 World Cup at age 20 was mercurial. But he lacks guts. He lacks drive. He lacks the mental toughness needed to overcome obstacles. Instead, he runs back to the cover of his mommy's quilt.
Can't see him making any sort of impact over there, except in training. Klinsmann likes him for some reason, so never say never, but reports out of Munich aren't exactly effusive.
"What he has shown so far is okay, he can certainly kick," said Bayern's Uli Hoeness.
Sweet! He can kick!
