  1. hater, hater, alligator! That’s what makes soccer such a fantastic sport. You could have so many people from every corner in the world, speaking all kinds of languages, and still manage to win games. Awesome!

  2. I hope my gaLAxy beats the crap out of the United Nations team (everyone in the world except Americans) by 3-0…hehehe…

  3. It will certainly benefit in terms of money. In terms of how exciting the league is? no, it really doesn’t matter who is good, just as long as some teams are really good

  4. Hey Dan, this is Dantheblue… I agree with your assessment.

    Myopic NY fans are most distasteful too. Go Knicks! (Oh dtb, shut up as your Lakers are getting their behinds handed to them! YIKES)

    Anyways, while Landon is less willing to run at folks, he still has all the speed and tools to utilyze that speed when necessary and has the gas in the tank to exploit it. I see him abusing Marquez and JPA finding his way out of his mediocrity against his old team to bury a goal or two and watch my beloved gaLAxy take 3 points.

  6. Red Bulls taking 3 points at the HDC? lol, gluck. sure the galaxy haven’t been pulling best results but they also have had some pretty ridiculous weather situations to deal with and at the HDC they are undefeated at home.

    REGARDLESS: I have to say I’m pretty disappointed with the complete lack of press for this match. It is one of the 2 biggest games of the year for MLS in terms of Media hype and buzz, USE IT!

  7. I’ve been a Galaxy fan since the league launched, and I can tell you that this Galaxy team is exceedingly dull.

    The 2011 Galaxy are the 2010 Galaxy without Buddle’s goals. Solid defensive, counter-attacking team that is mediocre in possession, poor in the final third, and Donovan has clearly lost a step and doesn’t run at people as he once did.

  8. I’m sick of the myth that somehow MLS will benefit by these two teams being powerhouses. Baseball has great teams on both coasts and is well on its way to being the 3rd most popular sport in America. Meanwhile, the NFL doesn’t even have a team in LA and is far and away the country’s #1 sport. Heck, college football is probably the second most popular sport already and you’d be hard pressed to find a good team in all of the northeast. Apologies for the rant. Western conference has too much quality. LAGs.

  9. I’m sure Don Garber will be excited. This is the rivalry he’s been trying to develop for some time.

  10. No home team in MLS has lost this season when the opponent travels 3 time zones. Of course I’m hoping the Union break that streak tonight…

  11. I dont care who wins, I just want the match to be entertaining….something that these hyped up games rarely are.

  12. A lot hinges on whether Teemu will play and as of now this looks not to be the case.

    LA will be hungry after their loss in Frisco.
