No home games, great, I guess it's all about the Tour De Becks. The Dallas game is obviously to make up for all the complaints that Beckham didn't play there last season, and Lalas promising to make up for it.

Why no pre-season games us LA fans can see, like the La Mirada Seahorses and/or Fresno Fuego

This goes out to David Beckham:
I'm sorry that Capello did not pick you for the Nat'l Squad for game against Switzerland. You have nothing... NOTHING to feel bad / down about. You are a Soccer Hero... A Soccer Professional... most of all, a caring, responsible sports promoter. We will thankfully & gladly welcome you back again into the LA Galaxy for Pre-Season starts. Our LA Galaxy team looks up to you... very much needs you... and, can't wait to see you play your best out on the field. 100 caps or not - the impact you have had this past year... plus, years to come on American Soccer is 'bloody' phenomenal! Long Live!!!

Love this beautiful game - PLAY HARD!!!

I was looking at the roster and noticed that there is only one goal keeper listed, Steve Cronin.
Does anyone know if we are currently on the lookout for a keeper? are we filling this position with a draftee player? Any rumored trades for a keeper? New signing is probably out of the question due to salary caps. I would love to know what the plans are.
