  1. Agreed that the Gals are the best in the league to watch if you’re looking for entertainment. The over-under on goals in the average LA game is about 4. They really need to get moving on defensive help, I still think they should deal Ruiz, but the window looks to be closing with Chi if they are going to land McBride.

    Weird night in MLS, 7 red cards in 3 games???

  2. If the Galaxy aren’t gonna improve their defense, then they need to finish all their chances. That game should have been at least 4-2. Buddle just throw away his one on one by waiting forever to shoot.

  3. Decent offense for the Galaxy, but boy, what crappy defense! Don’t they know that it is much easier to kill the game by keeping the ball? Plus, the Rapids kept catching them on the same play – long ball over the top. And Xavier is way past his prime – decent positioning, but absolutely no legs left.

    Gullit needs to call up his old pals Rijkard and Coeman for help in teaching defensive basics:)

  4. With a third of the season having been completed, and the Galaxy in first place, I would say they are in pretty good shape. They will need to do something about their defense to get to the MLS Cup, though.

  5. The Galaxy were lucky to survive that onslaught. Same old story. Their going to need to keep scoring lots of goals if they are going to have success, because they will certainly keep giving them up if something doesn’t change.

  6. And a fan runs out on the field and gives Beckham a high five & hug with Klein then showing up and knocks the kid to the ground who is then helped back to his feet by Beckham and then taken away by “security”

  8. Amit – got it. I found the free webcast for tonight. I agree, the LAG matches alone so far this season have been worth the $50 I paid for DK.

  9. Ironic that Buddle has to leave the game after making contact with Burpo while trying to avoid contact with Burpo.

  10. Jackie is struggling, “US Open” ?? Golf tournament must be on her mind versus US Open Cup.

    I guess I’m just being picky.

    7 red cards in one day of MLS. Wonder what the record for reds in 1 day of MLS league play.

  11. Found the match on Sopcast.

    Comcast was real helpful. Couldn’t figure out the problem, asked if I had rebooted my digital box & ended the chat by setting up an appointment for a tech to come on Thursday afternoon from 10-2 where they will not be able to figure out why I had a problem getting the game tonight.

  12. Red card to Colorado’s Facundo Erpen for rolling on the ground and kicking Allen Gordon in the crotch.

    Red card to LA’s Allen Gordon for retaliating by kicking him in the shin. Good calls both ways.

    LA is dominating, hope it continues in the second half.

  13. I’ve been distracted myself with stuff going on. I didn’t even know about the red until you just mentioned them. It must be “red” night!

  14. When I ordered DK on opening weekend the Customer Service person with Comcast somehow searched for and some how found a special deal of $49 for the season. So I’m not sure I can get much more of a discount than that. This is the 1st problem I’ve had this season. Unfortunately it wasn’t the RSL v KC game instead of this match.

    Enjoy

  15. DCM: I have a lot of problems with my DK but nearly all of them are the same thing. The game never comes on and it’s like I don’t have the DK package. If it happens enough you should ask for a discount. We’ve done that a couple of times in the past few years.

  16. Wow! Buddle looks like he might finally be getting his head together and starting to realize his potential. Great goal. A good season by Buddle could make LA an offensive juggernaut.
