    OK, I gotcha, no problem. It did not sound that way when you first wrote it.

    Probably didn't. I'd have to check the original time because it was either really late or I was at work. Either way those words get jumbled 'cause I'm either tired or neglecting work! :D

    I DVR'd the Premier League Review Show today and I found myself watching his 80 yard sprint over and over and over and over again. He's so f**king fast. DAMN. There were two guys going full speed and he went from behind them to several feet in front of them.

    That's a fast white dude.

    Around what time in the match did Landy make that run?

    Ah, I erased it. Um, well I know it was definitely in the second half. That's a 30 minute window. ;) Other than that, I really can't say what minute. I'm sure someone else will remember though.

    Edit: BBC doesn't show the time, but the run does start at 5:15 in the MOTD highlights posted by Yanks Abroad: http://watchsocceronline.blogspot.com/2010/01/motd-highlights-of-ya-in-epl-donovan_28.html#more

    This was the first evidence Ive seen where Donovan isnt showing dead or tired legs. That run he made to get into the play with Saha was the first Donovan-esque burst of speed and endurance, especially in the second half.

    I think youll start to see more of what makes Donovan the player he is in the coming weeks, as its that speed, and the ability to use it again and again that really sets him apart from most players.

    I'm really looking forward to Arteta passing to Landon. Landon was exceptionally dangerous and dynamic with Beckham feeding him those sweet passes. Let's see what happens with a guy who "playmakes" just as well, but with Landon surrounded by guys as good as him rather than Alan Gordon.
