None of what Klinsmann makes sense to me in regards to leaving Donovan off the roster for this year's World Cup. The more I learn about the relationship between Donovan and Klinsmann, the more I believe that Klinsmann's decision was based on personality conflicts and not what Donovan brings to the team. I really hope that Klinsmann knows something about the rest of the squad that we common folk don't, and we have a stellar performance this year.
Granted, we've found some unexpected success with him as coach (beating Mexico, Italy, Germany, etc.), but I don't foresee us going far in this year's World Cup. The soccer gods have decided to not only put the U.S. in the Group of Death, but to also exclude our best scoring player ever from even stepping onto the pitch.
Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it.
