    MLS will be committing a real outrage if they do not make a deal with Everton for Donovan to move there this month. He is at his peak, he deserves a chance to play against, and with, the best. It will be a great boon to the US National Team as well, if the best US player gets to move his game up a notch or two. With Donovan, Edu, Bradley and Holden all moving to another level, we might have a real midfield come the next World Cup. And as an aside, Guzan and Donovan as the over-age players for the Olympic Team, they might make a run.
