I've probably said this to many of you in person, but everything that has happened with AEG, Beckham, Lalas, Overseas tours, Pavon, Leiweke, Yallop, Gullitt, etc. over the last 3 years has totally sapped me of my enthusiasm for not only the Galaxy, but soccer in general.

I'm just going to relax and drink a beer.

I have to say that the things Arena is doing make some sense from a roster perspective. Sanneh and Berhalter are now here so even the old guys have to compete. I wonder if we'll see Berhalter in the lineup at all tomorrow. Part of me hopes we don't. With Lewis back I would expect the G's to be better on the left. Hopefully De La Garza plays behind Lewis. However, I would not be surprised to see Lewis play behind Patterson. Living with Bruce means there are not a lot of tactics to discuss. He has only one way to play and he seems to have some ways to train his team to play that way. What I would like to see, though not really probable.

--------------Saunders--------------
-------Gonzalez---Sanneh----------
Franklin------------------------Lewis
----------Dema------Tudela---------
Klein-----------------------Patterson
-------------------Donovan----------
----------Buddle---------------------

2-1 G's.

Buck, post your LARS chart of ascension. I think everybody has graduated a level since last season. At least. These days one season = two levels.

Anyone going to be near LAX on Sat about 3pm and can give me a ride to the match? Twigg? Shooter?

I also need a ticket and couch, but those things will probably work themselves out...


3...confirmed.

Maybe then people will realize that while Harden wasn't The Dread Defender Roberts level of suck, he wasn't anything about which to write home.


As a rookie, not so much, but you could see he had a lot of potential. I wish we paid him more and he stayed. I would still rather have him in as a center back over X, any day or any match.

6) go bald and look like Kevin, Scott, Geoff, or that other fool
7) wear a wig
8) say your TM's long lost family member: who can play the drums, wave a flag, and keep the beat at the same time



6-8 are totally interchangeable, probably can mix them in with the first 5 to really confuse everyone

If, by chance, The G's are up by a 3 goals, please don't bring your friend in the Rapids jersey to our section. You remember last year what bad luck he was for us. :lol:
