THE Game is Set to Go

It's almost game time here at The Home Depot Center where the Galaxy will play the New York Red Bulls in the season's most high profile game. The Galaxy look to win their third game in a row at home and sweep the season series with New York. Tonight also marks the first time that David Beckham will start for the Galaxy since the 2009 MLS Cup in Seattle nearly 10 months ago. Yohance Marshall will start again in defense, this time alongside Leonardo starts in place of the susepended Omar Gonzalez.

The game features a Red Bull squad without Thierry Henry but still has a formidable attack led by Juan Pablo Angel, the second leading scorer in MLS.

Here is the complete Galaxy squad...






Subs: Saunders, DeLaGarza, Lewis, Cazumba, Birchall, Magee, Bowen.

And here is how the visitors, New York Red Bulls will lineup for Head Coach Hans Backe...






Subs: Sutton, Petke, Borman, da Luz, Robinson, Ubiparipovic, Ibrahim.

On print, our LAG line-up looks primed to win and score... but, there is a HUGE difference between print and advertising and actual thoroughness, confidence, comfort, QUALITY on field!!! We got outclassed!
Mehdi Ballouchy is a HUGE pick-up and improvement for that team! Way to go Hans Backe for realizing that, and capitalizing on acquisition when it presented itself.
Bruce and Dave cannot do anything now - it's too late to change the team make-up and get STRIKERS/2nd STRIKERtall-physical combo. Bruce decided to be the "likeable/loved" manager instead of the "I'll do whatever it takes to make this team's chances for winning above my own concerns and image" approach.
