Landin to Cruz Azul

Luis Angel Landin will stay in Mexico after all.

Despite interest from Houston, Landin moved from Morelia to Cruz Azul and will stay in the Mexican First Division. Houston, who lost both Nate Jaqua (expansion draft) and Dwayne De Rosario (trade) this offseason, were looking to fill their offensive shortcomings with Landin, a once-hot prospect who has been rather lukewarm at best during his career in Mexico.

Earlier today, a report in Mural criticized Landin and his father, who doubles as his agent. Landin had reportedly been pursued by European clubs, clubs from Russia, Belgium and Turkey. But the report questioned whether the interest was real, a stretch of the imagination or just plain lies from his agent/father. The report also said Landin's ego is large and if he were as good as he thought he was, Morelia would have used him more often.

In other words, Houston doesn't miss out on anything. Cruz Azul now will try and extract something from Landin. Good luck.

Landin's hair reminds me of "mugatu" from Zoolander.

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.
