On the Ground in Philly

The entire Galaxy delegation has now arrived in Philadelphia ahead of tomorrow's SuperDraft.

The blog staff has been here since late on Monday night for a series of meetings with contemporaries from around the league (hence the lack of posts, our apologies) while the coaching staff arrived this evening directly from Fort Lauderdale, where they had been for the MLS College Combine. Additionally, there are a number of other club executives in town, from the Galaxy and throughout the league for additional meetings, including the annual NSCAA Convention.

The draft, and the convention are being held across the street from us at the Philadelphia Convention Center and we'll be there all the way through the draft to bring you all the latest soundbites from the Galaxy coaches and any players that we long as they're in attendance. Just remember, we pick 15th in the first round, so there are a lot of things that can happen from the time that the draft begins and the time that we make our first pick.

So with that said, who do you want to see the Galaxy select? Are there any areas on the field that you want to see the club attempt to upgrade?

We need a speedy midfielder on the wing. I don't think defenders are the necessary now and if Eskandarian is healthy this year attackers neither. With the average age of our midfield that needs to be bolstered, especially since Becks won't be with us for half the season.

Perhaps a CAM? If Donovan continues to impress at Everton I could see them making a strong bid to keep him.

I would say that a young LB or AM/Wing to learn under Eddie Lewis and Dunivant would be a great addition.

speedy wingers, beef to the bones in almost bare central midfield and some depth upfront.

thanks for the pics and news :)

the new adidas MLS Galaxy Jubilanee ball looks quite cool too.

I want to see us go after the defensive midfielder from UCLA, Amobi Okugo. A guy that can keep possession and put in the tackle.
