In this week’s column I took a look at the cooling off of the previously red hot Galaxy.
A couple of things I didn’t have the space to touch on in the column:
*The Galaxy have a relatively easy regular season run-in. Seven of their last nine games are at Home Depot Center including a home game against Eastern Conference bottom dwellers D.C. United and an “away” game at Chivas USA, similarly scraping along the bottom of the Western Conference.
*Supposedly David Beckham will return from injury to provide the team some sort of boost, although I’m not sure what, which is why I didn’t bother to mention him in the column. Beckham seems so 2007 and it remains to be seen whether he is any sort of force in 2010.
Also, the U.S. Women’s National Team has announced two games against China Oct. 2 and 6 on the East Coast, the final two games before CONCACAF World Cup qualifying begins.
