The Galaxy went through one of the club's final training sessions before Monday's roster and salary compliance day, meaning that this could be the final day of training with the Galaxy for some players.
For those that don't know, the Galaxy can have no more than 24 players (20 senior roster and four developmental roster spots) under contract by the end of the day on Monday and must be compliant with the league's salary budget.
Even with the deadline looming, today's training was not outwardly different than any other, with the players working on tactics and possession before breaking out to do fitness work and finishing with crossing and finishing drills.
In the fitness portion of training, the field players were paired up 1v1 with the coaches keeping track of who won each race.While they were running, the goalkeepers were working on hitting the ball first time on pass backs, with all four keepers, including Donovan Ricketts, who participated in the entire session after missing the PPC because of a hamstring injury, trying to hit the ball with either foot to a stationary target, which was Ian Feuer.
Before the session closed with some crossing and finishing, with Sean Franklin, Chris Klein and Kyle Patterson all whipping balls into the box.
Bryan Jordan missed Friday's training with a foot injury while Eddie Lewis was also out with the hamstring injury that he picked up on Saturday against Suwon. Both players remained inside doing rehab work with members of the medical team.
While Eddie was not on the field this afternoon, he will be in Santa Monica on Saturday, March 7 to take part in the EA Sports FIFA Interactive World Cup on the 3rd Street Promenade and meet with the gamers.
