    Great column this week Nick! I was also confused as to why Dunnivant was left unprotected in lieu of Berhalter making the protected list. I always thought that Gregg was a stop-gap solution and not a long term option. I do love the guy’s passion and leadership qualities, but that inevitable decline in form is looming.

    Good observations but the how too is the key. Galaxy is hamstrung by the DP-reduced budget. It’s very difficult to find mid-priced yet effective talent. We definitely need to jettison some older guys but cannot deplete our ranks from experienced leadership. Next year is going to be a tougher season with addtional non-league games we have to play and depth will be essential. Tough job for any coach/GM.

    Nick,
    Are you going to write a similar column for Chivas USA and what they need to do? Or are you going to wait until a new head coach is announced to give us our in depth review?

    Is the club ready to bring more players up from the academy? I noticed a few unprotected Central Defenders for the Philly draft list. I know Johnny B can play the position if we need it, but he will be pulling USMNT duty this summer and that leaves us a little weak in the back? Or because Philly can only take one player from us, Chivas will either have Thomas or Curtin to pair with Cuesta?

    Yeah, exactly I’ll wait until a new coach is hired.

    PK,

    Start a campaign to dissuade your club from hiring the idiot Sampson. They won’t have any credibility left if they do. Just neighborly advice.
