*As if on cue, Sports Illustrated is reporting this morning we now have the answers to those questions and the Galaxy are reportedly set to announce a new contract for Donovan on Wednesday.
That’s a little sooner than I anticipated, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a relatively short-term deal through next year’s World Cup that still allows Donovan to keep his post-tournament options open.
What do you think of the new Donovan deal and its implications for the national team?
**The Galaxy confirmed this morning that the club will “make a major announcement regarding the future of forward Landon Donovan” at a noon Wednesday press conference.
It figures in a column about the Galaxy’s visibility among general sports fans in Southern California, the piece would go AWOL — on our own web sites (and we’re still awaiting the return of the dedicated soccer page on our websites since a radical redesign last week, in case you were wondering, BTW).
Still, you can belatedly read the column online as the Galaxy embarks on their final 10-game MLS stretch as well as the start of the CONCACAF Champions League tonight in Carson here.
Incidentally, regular Galaxy sellouts at home may be a thing of the past in Carson, but not elsewhere.
The Vancouver Whitecaps announced today that fewer than 1,000 tickets remain for Saturday’s game against the Galaxy.
