[SOCCER AMERICA POLL] Soccer America polled its readers, asking them to weigh in the Landon Donovan tug-of-war. Should he stay at Everton? Or should he return to the Los Angeles Galaxy? Almost half the fans who responded said Donovan should arrange a permanent transfer to Everton. Not one suggested he return to Los Angeles and not go back to Everton. For all the poll results ...

SA POLL: What should Donovan do?
45% Stay at Everton until the end of the EPL season and arrange a permanent transfer to Everton
19% Stay at Everton until April 15 and then return to Los Angeles
14% Stay at Everton until the end of the EPL season and then return to Los Angeles
10% Return to Los Angeles and return to Everton next winter on a loan deal
9% Return to Los Angeles and arrange a permanent transfer to the highest bidder
0% Return to Los Angeles and not go back to Everton

Total Votes (as of Tuesday evening): 975

    Hmm....We clearly know which side of the fence you are on. This could also be read to say 55% of fans believe Donovan should return to MLS.

    Hmmmmm, yes indeed. Many readers probably (emphasis on probably!) do not know that anyone can make statistics say whatever one wants. Good point Wade! Landon has gotten his due in MLS, he got his wish when he left the "Quakes and came to Los Angeles (to be closer to home and to allow his ex-wife to get into the thick of Hollywood) and given his inability to make it in Germany, but is now able to do something with Everton speaks volumes that he ought to stay there. Indeed, his stay with the Galaxy has run its course. Buena Suerte en Inglaterra, Landon!

    I just wonder if Donovan now has ANY greater appreciation for Beckham's position last year . . . It seems to me he ought to apologize & tell everyone that he now understands. It's fun to play with and against top talent.

    It's been great watching Landon play in MLS, but he has proven he belongs in England. With Donovan, Everton is a rising power and a real threat to Liverpool's dominance alongside the Mersey. And with Howard's popularity there, it's been nice to see the city so enthusiastically embrace two Yanks. It might the best thing that's happened to US-England relations since WWII -- at lest in that region. So we should all encourage all the interested parties to allow Landon to make a go of it across the pond.
