The guys are ready for this weekend's trip to Oakland, the first away game of the season at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Some of the guys that are coming back from injuries, surgeries and suspensions moved that much closer to being match fit on Thursday. Red cards to Alan and Gregg provides opens the door for other to see some action. Bruce and the coaching staff see the suspensions an opportunity to build depth within the team.
We caught up with Bruce and Stefani ahead of Saturday's game against the Earthquakes. Stefani breaks down San Jose a little bit for us while Bruce says playing at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum might be a good thing for the Galaxy.
Also, after a solid training session, Landon and Klein led a group of players that stayed on the field to work on finishing. Jovan was on fire, putting away almost every opportunity, as was Landon and Bryan. Edson, who's rehabbing hard so he can rejoin the guys on the field, was among those taking part in the drill, which would start at the top of the box, go wide to Klein and then back into the box. Occasionally, the ball would be send in from the middle of the field and the player would get two touches to put it away.
