My second consecutive noon Sunday Galaxy game and what a difference a week makes.
The clouds are clearing in Carson, but instead of 30,000 screaming green-bedecked Sounders fans in Seattle last weekend it’s a half-empty stadium with the makings of an ugly game in store given these two teams’ records.
Up top for the Galaxy, Bryan Jordan gets his first start of the season alongside Alan Gordon, while Edson Buddle has aggravated his right quad injury and is sitting this one out. Todd Dunivant is resting after the Galaxy’s stint of three games in eight days and Tony Sanneh is on the bench.
The Galaxy XI: Ricketts, Franklin, Berhalter, Gonzalez, Lewis, Donovan, Kovalenko, Miglioranzi, Magee, Gordon, Jordan.
Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers is in midfield for the Crew, while Guillermo Barros Schelotto and Alejandro Moreno are up front.
The game is on TeleFutura.
