LA Galaxy

The reverberations from Jurgen Klinsman’s decision that Landon Donovan was somehow not one of the best 23 American soccer player on the planet continue, but on Sunday night Donovan did his talking on the pitch, as he became the all-time scorer in Major League Soccer.

Donovan had been tied at 134 goals with Jeff Cunningham on the all-time goalscoring list all season. But in the 50th minute against the Philadelphia Union, Donovan was all alone in first place when he turned in a great cross from Galaxy captain Robbie Keane.

landonLandon Donovan did not hold back on his assessment of Jurgen Klinsmann’s decision not to include him in the US 23-man squad heading to Brazil next month.

Meeting with reporters for the first time since Klinsmann told him he was not one of the 23 best American players on the planet, Donovan could not hold back his contempt for the decision and the national team coach:

“Based on my performances leading up to camp, based on my preparation for the camp, based on my fitness, based on my workload, based on the way I trained and played in camp,” he said, “I not only thought I was part of the 23, I thought I was in contention to start. So that’s why this has all been pretty disappointing.”

SKC-MLS-CupFC Dallas stays in the number one position in the MLS rankings, while Toronto FC and the LA Galaxy both jumped up the rankings after good weekends.

1: FC Dallas
Even if they’re not playing well, they’re always so dangerous on set pieces that they can just bury you. It was even through an hour this weekend, then Houston gave ‘em an inch. And then it was over.

Last Week: Won vs. Houston, 4-1
This Week: Saturday vs. Seattle

2: Real Salt Lake
Going on the road and getting a point is always a good result. Doing it at the MLS Cup champions’ place, and getting a MotM performance from your backup ‘keeper? Tough, gutty early-season performance.

The Toffees have again been linked with the United States international but Arena is adamant Donovan and Keane, along with defender Omar Gonzalez, are going nowhere. Arena told Galaxy’s All-Access podcast on LAGalaxy.com:

Omar Gonzalez.Is Major League Soccer finally starting to reward American players. Days after the Seattle Sounders made US national team star Clint Dempsey the highest paid player in MLS, the LA Galaxy made Dempsey’s US teammate Omar Gonzalez the clubs third designated player.

No financial details of the long-term deal were released by the league.

Gonzalez joins Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane as the Galaxy‘s designated players, and he is the first American defender to be named a designated player.

Gonzalez was named MLS’ top defender in 2011 while the Galaxy won the league title. He returned from an injury to help Los Angeles to its second straight title last December, earning MLS Cup MVP honors.
