Fun in the Sun

Following a morning gym session, the guys were glad to get out on the field and into the sunlight this afternoon. The coaching staff put the players through an intense session ahead of Saturday's match against San Jose, but the guys did not seem to mind, knowing full well that Wednesday will be a day off for everyone. They'll be back in on Thursday and Friday as they aim for their second straight win.

Chad Borak, Tristan Bowen, Michael Stephens and Max Young from the Galaxy Rios were all at training today, as was Clint Mathis who we told you last week was in town.

Peter Vagenas did not train today as he got treatment on his injured right quad while Greg Vanney was absent today with an illness and Abel Xavier was given the afternoon off after the morning's gym session.

Here is a series of shots from this afternoon session:

Thanks for these great training session pictures. I hope Head Coach Ruud is recovering well from his knee surgery. I think I saw a glimpse of Charles Alamo doing his stretches and exercises, as well. Clint Mathis - Neat! How's he liking being back in So Cal, compared to Greece, I mean? And, he offered to train with the youngsters... even better. Tristan, Chad, and Michael Stephens look like they're having a good time enjoying the training session. I'm sorry to hear that Greg is out ill. Hope he feels better soon. Please let us know who all can & will be heading up to San Jose for Saturday night's game. Keep up with the updates. Keep practicing LA Galaxy team - be physically & mentally prepared. San Jose has a very capable defense. And, their mid-field is also shaping up nicely. But, our LA Galaxy team must be fully ready, confident, powerful, energetic, and totally comfortable & memorized in runs & plays. Go GALAXY!!!
