Kickoff on the Horizon

We're about 20 minutes away from kickoff here at The Home Depot Center and the lineups are in.

Donovan Ricketts, Gregg Berhalter and Stefani Miglioranzi all make their first starts of the MLS season while A.J. DeLaGarza is back in the squad.

Here's how the Galaxy lineup...






Subs: Saunders, Marshall, Sanneh, Patterson, Magee, Kirovski, Jordan.

And Chivas USA will look like this...





Subs: Parker, Curtin, Lahoud, Chijindu, Flores, Stepanovic, Eskandarian.

The referee tonight will be Tim Weyland.

I am currently watching the derby match and I cannot believe how atrociously bad this soccer is. Galaxy players are playing at about 1 mph and do not even seem to care. I cannot believe these are supposed professionals who are paid to do this for a living. Take some pride in your work and actually play like you give a hoot.

I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised that the Galaxy is so useless. They seem to be playing like the Bruce Arena USA teams of old. Oh wait, the chimp is at the helm! It all makes sense now.

That's it. I'm not watching anymore of this game! Does Galaxy really need the help of the referee in order to win? Donovan deserves an academy award. Where is the sportsmanship? Just play the game and give the fans something exciting to watch. Maybe if the PKs Donovan receives credit for in his goal count wouldn't matter, he would work harder to make REAL GOALS!!!

"The referee tonight will be Time Weyland. And, the plague of bees adn locusts shall commence at half-time. And, the sacrific of first-borns in injury time. And, let's not forget the parting of the seas on everyone's drive back home".

There is ABSOLUTELY NO DENYING that there are referees in this league that eat, breathe, dream, and plot to be "GODS AMONG MEN". Seriously, I wanted to hurl everything in me right onto the floor. One person affecting the mood, the rhythm, the persona of the game. Tragic, Sick, and Awful!
