Landon Donovan is known as USA soccer's native son. He has been chosen to carry an entire nation's hopes and aspirations of soccer dominance on his back. Donovan is the US Men's National Team all time leading scorer, playmaker, and without a doubt, the greatest soccer player the US has EVER produced. Landon deserves his number 10 shirt he wears for both the US National Team and his club team, LA Galaxy. Landon is also the poster boy for USA soccer and the best known USA soccer player, among casual and non-soccer fans in the US. Landon has just returned from his 2 month long loan to EPL club, Everton, for the second time in two years.

I've been busy, but now I am back and blogging about my favorite topic - American soccer!

Today was a huge day of success for professional soccer in the USA. This evening will be important as well!
First, the cover of FIFA 12 was officially unveiledtoday and it sports LA Galaxy and United States star Landon Donovan on it's cover for the second year in a row. To Donovan's right is Red Bull New York star Rafa Marquez. Last year Donovan also starred on the cover, however he was inUS National team gear. The new game cover is shown below.
Then it was announced that NBC networks had acquired the rights to air MLS games beginning in 2012. NBC will broadcast two regular-season games, two playoffs games and two USMNT games. The rest will be on the NBC Sports Network (currently known as Versus). This is a major accomplishment for professional soccer to be on a major network that reaches so many more households in America than Fox Soccer Channel did.
As almost every USA Soccer fan knows, today is Jurgen Klinsmann’s debut as manager of the USMNT. As I said in yesterday’s post, Klinsmann is instituting quite a few changes as coach. Some of the changes include Klinsmann only putting the player’s numbers on the back of the jersey. However Klinsmann is only numbering the starting players 1-11. The reserves will be numbered 12-18. This is an interesting change for the team. However, Klinsmann is also removing the player’s last names from the back of the jerseys to bring the players to recognize that the name on the front of the jersey is more important than the name on the back. This concept is very South American and European in nature. This is a very interesting move on Klinsmann’s behalf.How do you feel about Klinsmann’s new team decisions and the new partnership between MLS and NBC. Match made in heaven or not so much? I will have another blog post this evening after the game is over. Let’s go USA!
