Weekly Column: Galaxy hit bottom


Every week the horror show that is the Galaxy just keeps getting worse.

Would you pay a minimum of $30 to watch the worst team in the Western Conference?

Coach Bruce Arena repeated the enigmatic comment he made last week to The Washington Post again to me Monday, insinuating he knows what’s wrong with the team — but isn’t telling:

“It’s not public infomation, but I have a pretty good feel for it,” he said. “There’s always things behind the scenes that are part of the fabric of teams and you’ve got to find it. We haven’t found the right chemistry yet. We’ve had games where maybe a little better team spirit would have gotten us results.”

Team spirit? Really? Maybe we need a noon pep rally in the quad.

What the Galaxy really needs is a dependable center back and midfielders who need to look more interested in finding space and creating attacks, which as Landon Donovan pointed out after the loss to Chivas USA amounts to the “same old story” so far this season.

And at the risk of me getting repetitive, too, here’s more in this week’s column ahead of Wednesday’s Galaxy-Earthquakes and Chivas USA-Red Bulls games.

By the way, I’m pretty sure Arena said “team spirit” and not “teen spirit,” but that’s not a bad idea either.

Here we are, now, entertain us:
