The Official 2009 Chivas USA Team Photo (& Injury Update)

Because what’s a team photo without the toll of the injured?

Here are the latest additions to the walking wounded: left back Ante Jazic is listed as questionable for Sunday with a concussion and Eduardo Lillingston (!) is probable with a left hamstring strain.

First I’ve heard of either of them.

The team photo was taken today at the just-concluded “24 Hours of Chivas USA” at L.A. Live.

No Abel Xavier there.

    Poor Chivas, they are always injury prone.
    Nick, do you think Chivas would ever have a chance to go to the MLS Cup or make it further to the playoffs if they could avoid the injury bug?

    Nick replies: Yes. But they haven’t so they won’t.

    Off center, just like the picture shown. Never quite a comfortable fit in LA. I wish they would embrace an American-only players approach here to replicate what is the essence of the Chivas allure.

    Nick replies: Ouch. That’s more due to my sizing/blogging skills. No editorial intent intended.
