Galaxy coach Frank Yallop said on Tuesday that he might consider playing Landon Donovan against Chivas USA on Aug. 23.
That doesn't seem like much of a statement except when you consider where Donovan will be on Aug. 22. Donovan was called into the United States national team for a match in Sweden on Aug. 22.
Yallop said that he'd consider playing Donovan depending on how much playing time the U.S. player sees against the Swedes.
I find it difficult to imagine anybody playing in Europe and Southern California within a 36-hour span and being effective. It kind of smacks of desperation.
