The global media attention around MLS and the Galaxy in particular has never been anything close to what it’s been the past few weeks. I mean, TV camera’s reporting on Open Tryouts at the HDC allowing a kid from England to fly over to LA, spent an hour on the pitch, receive his 15 minutes of fame in the process and now have the ability to tell his grand kids we had a trial with a team David Beckham was on. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame …
After being told he’ll never play for Real Madrid, Becks scores in his first match back.
I can’t wait for him to bring those freekicks to the HDC.
Wonder what the British media will say if he does well the rest of the season in Spain?

In today’s LA Times, Grahame Jones fills space with the differences between LA Galaxy and Real Madrid.
Ok, I can’t argue here…
In (the last two weeks), the Galaxy has played two games, won neither, made no coaching changes, signed no new players, shown little sign of doing either and pretty much puttered along in a business-as-usual mode.
True, most Galaxy fans would love to see a coaching change. But as the transfer window is closed, there’s isn’t much opportunity to bring in new players right…especially when you have a salary cap to …
How the mighty have fallen. Michael Own wanted to leave Liverpool and chase the big bucks (quid?…Peso?…) in Madrid. Then there was talk about him returning to England and joining one of the big(ger?) clubs there (Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal) ,but it seems no one is interested in signing him.
Owen clearly wants to move from Madrid. He has not established any long-term roots in the city, does not speak the language and the arrival of two new Brazilians, Julio Baptista and Robinho, means he could now be the fifth-choice striker …
..for these international money making tours?
Yeah, I’ve been pretty critical of how LA Galaxy whored their match with Real Madrid. However, I’m not the only one being critical.
Things didn’t go as smooth as everyone had hoped in Asia. It wasn’t that long ago that most people there acted like everyone in LA did. Now FIFA is saying these tours are a bad thing. Here’s a shocker, it seems big Euro teams doing these whirlwind tours are taking money out of the pockets of the local clubs. though I’m sure AEG …
Last week, I watched LA get torn apart by Real Madrid. The 2-0 score flattered the Galaxy and everyone went away happen even though fans paid through the nose for the chance to see the match.
So, let’s cross to the other side of the Pacific were the Spanish Giants are right now. They played Tokyo Verdy over the weekend and got thumped 3-0. On top of that, Verdy player, Toda spat in Becks face as the teams left the pitch at half-time.
“Toda spat in my face. That in life is …
As a Galaxy fan, I can’t tell you how much watching the LA-DC match on Saturday pissed me off. If Doug Hamilton can’t see how much Peter Nowak outcoached Steve Sampson, then he has no business having any say who should be leading any MLS team.
But I want to stay positive today so I’m going to talk about Herculez Gomez. SoCal Soccer News had a good interview with him the other day. Now, I’m going to go on record–probably a little late–and claim that I thought the …
Following the two games Real just played here in the US, Real will host and MLS XI at the Bernabeu on Aug 23.
Too bad this match is a mid-week encounter is right in the middle of the regular season and most players will play a Saturday game before flying to Madrid and return for a game the following weekend.
What’s more important Mr. Garber, these friendly’s or the regular season? I thought you said you were looking at ways to make the regular season more meaningful when you were asked …
I’d started this long winded Ramble about the Galaxy’s two games this last weekend but it just kept getting longer and really had no direction. Guess I’ve still got a lot to learn when it comes to writing. Thankfully, Nick Green at the Daily Breeze bailed me out with this piece. Fact is, while MLS has come a long way in the last 10 years, the league as a whole still has a lot more climbing to do. They (the league and teams) are so caught up on what’s going …
