BJ Heading North

Just back from Under-23 National Team duty last week, Bryan Jordan will have the chance to get a game under his belt on Thursday night as he has been loaned to the Portland Timbers of the USL First Division. Jordan played for the Timbers last season and will be available to their head coach Gavin Wilkinson on Thursday night when they host the Minnesota Thunder on Thursday night at PGE Park.

The 22-year old Pasadena native has appeared in one regular season game, playing the final seven minutes of the 2-1 loss to New York, and four Reserve Division games, where he leads the Galaxy with three goals.

Jordan is expected to be back in LA in time for Saturday's game against the Rapids.

Thanks for giving us these little updates on our LA Galaxy team. It was nostalgic and nice to see Mauricio Ciefuegos on LA Galaxy grounds again - he did so much for our team and our early LA Galaxy years. Love ya, man!!!
I hope that Head Coach Ruud and Coach Cobi are really laying it down very firm and very strong for our team - we cannot keep losing the way we have. It's gotta STOP!!! We cannot afford to give away anymore games. Turn it around!!! Turn it around!!! The players have got to feel the full heat and demands. We need more skilled, creative, talented midfielders. It's so evident.
How is Carlos? Any updates on Carlos? Did he make it back from Nat'l team duty?
I wish Bryan all the best up in Portland - I hope Head Caoch Wilkinson starts him during the coming match - score some goals, Bryan - we'll be rooting for you!!!
The LA Galaxy team has got to spend considerable effort training, practicing and improving Midfield and Defensive play. The passes & crosses must be accurate and on-target. No more three or four touches. The break-out practice out of tight spots, or two-man defending must be memorized and comfortable.
I hope the LA Galaxy team, the coaches, and the management realizes how very critical it is NOT to keep losing games. Come on guys - put it all out there on the field and WIN!!!

a one game loan? That's kind of a farce isn't it?

Not exactly fair to the other USL teams to have their oponents get MLS players loaned to them in a short-term manner.

News from PDX is the loan is for at least 2 matches.
