  1. Good, solid outing from Donovan to start the loan spell. Great delivery on the corner, nice runs, and nice distribution overall. I think he looked dangerous and caused some definite problems in the back for Arsenal. Cold have done better on the final ball in the box, but these thing happen, especially in the middle of a snow storm. Rating: 7

  2. Not to bring up this debate again, especially during Landon’s debut, but my confidence in Howard is dwindling. Freidel’s decision making seems to be much better; I kind of wish he came out of retirement for the WC.

  3. If everton would learn to pass the ball better they would be a better team, they hold the ball way too long. its so frustrating!!!

  4. Very solid if not spectacular start for Donovan. Certainly held his own, showing speed and control in terrible weather conditions against a top Premier League team. Hopefully more performances like this can continue to prove that top American field players can compete against the best in the world.

  5. donovan played great

    saha is incredibly selfish, everton had several chances with either donovan or cahill being wide open to goal and saha refuses to pass to them

    i don’t get to watch many everton matches, but their back four is, for lack of a better word, disgusting

  6. Landon off at 68 min. He looked very good and made Everton better, no question. With a bit more confidence he will score goals for them. Bravo!
