I keep up with the Toffees via Newsnow mainly

http://www.newsnow.co.uk/h/Sport/Football/Premier+League/Everton


Skysports.com is also a good place for match recaps and player ratings

I've really been impressed by how well Lando has fit in thus far. I've been a long time Lando hater, but he's won me over and I'd love to have him full time at Everton if he keeps this form up

Another for you here:

I'm pleased to get the chance to see Donovan regularly, I think most people have regarded him as the best from the US for a while now.

English media reaction to Donovan's first goal yesterday vs Sunderland.

From the Times of London.....

Their latest success may have been aided by Sunderland's generosity but that should not detract from Everton's growing sense of confidence in a season that had threatened to go off the rails. The addition of Donovan, an intelligent, thoughtful footballer whose lively movement off the ball was epitomised by Everton's second goal, has clearly helped in this respect.

From the Guardian.....

Chants of "USA, USA" marked the American's first goal for Everton, showing there is still a football ground on Merseyside where that is acceptable.

From the Sun.....

While it opened Donovan's account following his short-term signing from America, the biggest surprise was he did not end up with a hatful against a backline as slapdash as this. Having said that, George McCartney does deserve praise for a wonderful goal-line clearance after Donovan had rounded Craig Gordon.

From the Daily Star.....

The American's 19th-minute strike sent ­Goodison Park wild as he finally found his mark for David Moyes' men.

From the Daily Mirror.....

They have not yet reached the promised land of a European place, but at least Everton saw the Landon they were promised. Landon Donovan scored his first goal for the Goodison club to set them on the way to a comfortable win over sorry Sunderland, to leave his manager David Moyes purring over a polished display from the American.

He seems very calm and appears to be really meshing with the team. The touch to the crest was a nice gesture as well. Is it possible that I warming to Landycakes?

Maybe I just want him out of MLS.

Hunt does add a regular goal threat, vital for a side battling relegation. Hull certainly value him highly, turned down £5m on deadline day as I remember. Bullard is probably the most important player to them though, they look a much better side with him pulling the strings. Though they've just picked up two great results without him, so what do I know...

Only saw 45 mins of the Merseyside derby but from what I saw Donovan was the best player on the pitch. Very disappointing Everton performance on the whole though.

I only saw the second half remember... but absolutely no-one else offered any kind of attacking threat. He was the only Everton player that looked like making something happen. There were no doubt some Liverpool players that put in a great shift defensively, but Everton just made it so easy for them. The only weakness appeared to be Insua up against Donovan, I thought Everton should've done more to get the ball to him.

Yeah sorry, I was just being a snarky TFC fan. He's been looking good, and a threat most of the time.

In my opinion he slowed down a bit after a couple failed passes, but no doubt he belongs on the pitch. This is very good for MLS.

"That was Landon's best game for us," said Moyes. "But I don't think we'll be able to keep him when his three-month loan expires unfortunately."

Anyone else wondering if he is kicking himself for signing on for another three years at the Galaxy?

A lot of people have speculated that Donovan wants to be a big fish in a small pond. Maybe he was selling himself short.
