Goff, I'm sure you'll fix it but right now your post says:

GK Brad Friedel 90 in Aston Villa's 1-1 tie with Manchester United
GK Brad Friedel in 18, didn't play for Aston Villa

Man U's offense must be in some desperate straits if they were up against a team whose goalie was on strike!

Missed Donovan. Was he played on the right again today? Left?

Friedel huge save on Rooney to save a point . . . though "save a point" seems odd to say when you're up a man half the game and playing at home . . .but there it is

We should be proud of the yanks abroad today - look at the sky sports player ratings - all of them except Jozy did very well - Donovan rave reviews all around.

@ DadRyan

Donovan played on the right today. Had a heck of a game.

Americans in America news (sort of): Ty Harden has been traded to TFC. Also, Ofori Sarkodie's amazing slide took a surprising turn. He was rated the 2nd-best defender by many coming into the MLS Combinm but his weak showing there saw his stock plummet. He was drafted by the Wizards in the 4th round. Reportedly, he has been dropped from their preseason roster.

thanks mybyrd. I opted to go over to a neighbor's place and watch the Aston Villa/ Man-U match instead of trying to chase feeds all afternoon. Saw the score line: 2-1 after the FSC match concluded and thought it sure would be nice if Donovan had any hand in those goals... Sweet.

Donovan, and Everton, were excellent all day. Terrific commitment and spirit, as The Voyeur would say.

Rated an 8 by SkySports, the fans upped it to 9.

Landon set Everton up for a goal when he was dragged down in the box, but Saha blew the PK! The Frenchman made up for it though with a brace to give the homeside a deserved 2-1 victory over Chel$ki.

BBC Sport/Football on Landon: The contest really came to life in the closing stages of the opening half, with Cech first denying Saha and then shortly afterwards saving the Frenchman's penalty after Carvalho's foul on the impressive Landon Donovan.
