Armando - Welcome! Chris - Thanks for coming across the pond to help out our lads... Appreciate it! Guys, please do everything in your skill & power to keep these guys in shape, healthy, and able to last a full 100 minute game. Be strict and be demanding... but, be fair! Our LA Galaxy needs to raise its performances and its standings in Yrs. 2008 & 2009. It's not a wish; rather, an obligation and duty. Practice, Drills, Scrimmages, Warm-Ups, and Cool-Downs are a MUST! I'm not sure how closely you guys have followed the MLS League these past two years... but, the level of play and competition have increased dramatically. The LA Galaxy team cannot afford to take a "relaxed" approach to things anymore!

Kick some serious tail! Love this beautiful game - PLAY HARD!
