I think he will come in as an impact sub. I think we need to take a step back and realize, for many reasons, he isn't the best or most important player. For a while, he was the only world class player on the squad. Now you have guys like Bradley, Dempsey and Howard who have been stalwarts at large clubs. I think Klinsmann is an excellent motivator and will get the most of it Donovan - it just might be in a different role.
In his prime, I still think he's the best best winger the US has had in my life time - but maybe some of these young blood guys will overtake him. You forget just how good he was - even in Europe.
