Rain Rain Go Away

Torrential downpours came through Boston today, forcing the guys to stay inside at the hotel for most of the dy and flooding some of the streets around the team hotel in Cambridge. As a result, the team was slightly delayed in arriving at Gillette Stadium, but everyone is here safe and sound, ready to take on the Revs.

Thanks to today's rains, the temperatures are far cooler than they had been throughout the week, setting the stage for another exciting night. The Galaxy will be in search of their 12th win of the season, matching their total from 2009 when they won the Western Conference and Bruce Arena will make two changes to the team that beat Seattle 3-1 on Sunday night in their last league game in order to achieve that feat. Omar Gonzalez is suspended and Landon Donovan is rested for the game, bringing the Brazilian duo of Alex Cazumba and Leonardo back into the team.

Here is the Galaxy's complete squad...


Alex Cazumba-----------Juninho-----------------Stephens




Subs: Saunders, DeLaGarza, Kovalenko, Lewis, Klein, Kirovski, Gordon.

And here is how the host New England Revolution line up...






Subs: Shuttlesworth, Murray, Phelan, Niouky, Mansally, Videira, Dube.

Please... don't imagine that all of us LA Galaxy are buffoons. Don't chalk this up to the rain, the refs, or the turf. We played like we were mesmerized deers in headlights. No plan; no counter-attack; no initiative to make out of our comfort zone. Bruce can be stoic and silent all he wants... it clearly was not a good performance. We gifted the East Coast with a WIN 'cause we played like we thought the world would go according to the Galaxy's wishes. No game in this league is a gimme' or easy. Please, at least, out of this I want Bruce to be so soiled and pissed. At least that will light a fire under his sport-coat. Alan Gordon - What in the world is his objective? Please, Bruce I sure hope you are scouting for REAL forwards who know what to do with the soccer ball in 1-v-1 and 1-v-2 play! Anyways, at least there are other MLS teams that want to play competitive, heart-felt soccer each and every time they step onto the pitch regardless of pitch, rain, sun, snow, cold, hot, yellow-clad rollie-pollies.
