Our readers have already read a few stories about the Klinsmann/Garber mud-slinging affair. Don Garber finally took the bait, as Klinsmann had spent the better part of 6 months goading him into a war of words.

For instance, Klinsmann begrudgingly took a whole host of MLS players to the World Cup, only to watch them put in some of the ugliest performances the side has ever seen.

Landon Donovan Deserves Credit For Building US Soccer Culture

It's fair to say that Landon Donovan and the US soccer public have always had a complicated relationship.

When he burst onto the scene all those years ago, everything about Donovan screamed insecure. He was talented – very talented – but every time he ripped off his shirt in a goal celebration, showed up with bleached hair, or fled from Europe defeated and craving the comfort of home, US Soccer reeled too.

Signature match? I'd probably pick two. One was against Germany in the ‘02 World Cup. I think I played well, except for not scoring. And two, I think would be the ‘09 semifinal against Spain.

If there was a chance, that maybe they'd schedule a game against Mexico in January, would you consider returning?

(leftover quotes from when I spoke to him before his final international game)



Assuming you don't score against Ecuador, goals against Mexico will bookend your international career.
Yeah, that's a good story.

Could you speak on that - and also, were you watching when Mexico was on the brink of elimination from the World Cup last year?

Landon Donovan has an interesting relationship with Latino fans, especially Mexican fans, who alternately love hating him and yet respect his play and his ability to speak to them in their language.

I wrote on that a bit here after the JK snub.
But even so, it's interesting to see Donovan get nominated for a Univision award.
