The buses are making their way North with a few hundred Galaxy supporters, but the squad is already here and getting prepared for tonight's match.
- Josh Wicks remained in LA with a left knee injury that he picked up in training last week, meaning that Vito Higgins will be the backup to Steve Cronin for the first time this season.
- Higgins actually joined the club here in San Jose directly from Spokane, Washington where he was collecting some of his personal belongings to transport back to LA. He flew to Washington in the middle of last week and was excused from training on Thursday and Friday before Wicks' injury, the extent of which will be known next week.
- In addition to the standard dessert fares with our team dinner last night (Fruit salad, sliced fruit, rice pudding, etc.) there was a very tasty strawberry cake in honor of Ceci's birthday. Our assistant athletic trainer, Ceci turned 25 yesterday and making it all that more special, she is a Northern California native who will have more than a fair share of friends and family in attendance tonight.
Lastly, here is some audio from yesterday from David and Ruud during their media session after training.
