According to a ESPN FC interview posted today, Donovan is really considering his future and the nation team may not be a part of it. Now, this may not be breaking news, but this is the first time it has seriously been elaborated on by the player himself. I don't think I need to emphasis the implication of such a huge decision, but this really opens the door to further analysis of the National squad. His involvement in Brazil is rested at a 50/50 chance. This is a huge challenge for JK. Now I do not think that every thread should be assuming he won't be there. So, beginning with this article, this may be a good place to discuss/analyze the future without Donovan. This way we can keep the topic concentrated. Where do we go from here? Who emerges? How does this change our WC chances (either leading to or at the finals)?
