Update: Galaxy at Chivas USA

Chivas USA 1 Galaxy 0

A mixup between Mike Magee and Landon Donovan just inside the Galaxy’s own half gave Chivas USA possession in the fourth minute that Sacha Kljestan used to good effect to find Maicon Santos, who’s deft outside of the foot shot into the far corner gave Donovan Ricketts no chance.

Donovan was at fault for that one is the consensus up here in the press box, although Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez surely gave Santos too much respect and space as well and should have closed him down better.

    The color guy (Harkes) just mentioned Kovalenko as being in a group of Galaxy players who have “composure”. Classic.

    You mean the man who everyone who ever touhed a soccer ball affectionally addresses as Harksey said that? The legend in his own mind, the Captain for life can say what ever he wants with that weird accent.
