Secondly, moving to Man City would be a big mistake for Donovan, joining a team that has David Silva, Yaya Toure,Nigel De Jongh, Gareth Barry, Shaun Wright Phillips, Adam Johnson, Stephen Ireland and Patrick Viera all in their midfield would have been a terrible mistake.
Thirdly, have you seen the debts that quality is costing a great many teams in Europe? All the teams in the Spanish league are 4.5 billion dollars in debt. Barcelona have just announced 100 million dollar loss, this after winning every trophy that was on offer to them over the last financial year. I would take a fiscally prudent and well run league any day over the debts that some teams are saddled with.
Finally I don't find the standard of the MLS that bad, I watch quite a few games and I think it can be decidedly more exciting than some leagues over here.
