Galaxy’s Donovan to Extend Everton Loan?

It could happen, Landon Donovan said today.

Donovan told the Liverpool Echo:

“I’ve been made to feel so welcome and when you’re welcome like that you don’t want to let anyone down. It’s a sharp contrast to how I felt last year when I was at Munich.

“It’s a little more individual and selfish there. Here they make you feel part of a family and you keep going because you don’t want to let anyone down.

“The future is out of my control. I want to enjoy this experience. That means I show up for training and I’m ready. I show up for the game and I’m ready.

“But who knows what will happen in the future. Football’s funny and you never know what could happen.

And who can blame him given the impression he has made so far?

Said Donovan on his Facebook page Sunday: “Good evening from a slightly warmer England! I’ve spent the day resting and recovering from an incredible game last night. That was in the top 5 of the most memorable games in my career. Thank you so much to all the Everton fans for making me feel right at home! It’s been nice to enjoy the victory today but tomorro…w we start preparing for Birmingham in the FA Cup. Goodnight!”

Also, don’t believe everything you read in those tatty English tabloids.

    Nothing says “lockout” like Landon Donovan asking for a loan extention.

    And, Nick, did you know that the Sun in the UK reported that Beckham might retire after the World Cup? Now, Beckham denies that but if there’s a lockout that would keep MLS off the field for roughly three months, retirement would make sense.

    The Sun in England is tabloid newspaper at its worst. Don’t believe anything you read in that.

    Wow, I wonder if the Riot Squad will burn his jersy too! That’s the funniest damn thing i’ve heard in a long time.
