Back to Work

After a weekend off, the Galaxy were back at work this morning, preparing for Saturday's all-important showdown with FC Dallas. A win could see the Galaxy move all the way to top of the MLS standings while also creating some additional distance between themselves and the rest of the Western Conference.

With that goal in mind, Bruce and the rest of the coaches put the team through a spirited session that saw short 5v5 games, with nearly the full squad,
including Julian, Sean and Edson
whose practice winning goal set off quite the celebration to end the session.
But that goal alone wasn't enough to get him, or any of the rest of the guys out of a bit of running to complete the day.Finally, in case you missed it, here is a bit of Todd's appearance last night on Fox Football Fone In.

Hey Galaxy fans! I'm coming in from out of town and going to the game on the 19th. What does the Galaxy have to offer before and after games? Any chance of getting pictures or autographs from the guys? (I'm looking for my old favorites: Dema, Kliener, Esky)

Glad you can make it to the game. Welcome. As far as I know, I do not believe there is any announced / scheduled pic/autograph session before games - unless if it was like a charity match or something. If there is to be a pic/autograph session, normally, LA Galaxy staff would arrange something AFTER the game over at the HDC Tennis Stadium. Normally 45-50 minutes after game has ended!
So, a lot of us are wondering, I'm sure - Are Alecko Eskandarian and Dema Kovalenko ready to come back into starting 11 yet???

Not too worried about Dema, he's been lagging it and more worried about Birchall, but even more concerned with WHEN WILL WE GET OUR 2 AWESOME STRIKERS BACK?

Edson tore it up last year and was on his way back to what he was doing and Alecko was fitting in nicely, with Donovan and Eddie and Becks on the wings to feed them balls and cross pin point accurate passes they will score in bunches when they come back!

Any word on when they'll make it back?

For both Sept 12th (LAG v FCD) and Sept 19th (LAG v TFC) games, the LA Galaxy organization is holding "Pre-Game Chalk Talks" from 6:10 pm - 6:30 pm at the HDC Tennis Stadium for the attending fans.

Sat, Sept 12th: Chalk Talk with GK-Coach Ian Feuer
Sat, Sept 19th: Chalk Talk with Asst Coach Cobi Jones

Then, after each of these games, the MLS officials that were presiding over these matches will also be available for their thoughts/decisions on the game(s).

charlesj27 - thanks for the info. It should be a great time and I'm looking forward to the game! Maybe we'll head over and listen to Cobi as well. Go Galaxy!
