Beckham Boosts Galaxy as Timbers Fall

Portland Timbers 3 Galaxy 5

Two sublime moments from David Beckham, given way too much time and respect, hacked the emotionally spent Timbers down to size after an early shock.

Game story.

Quotable:

The last time I scored a goal like that was for Manchester United against Deportivo [La Caruna], it was very similar to that,”Beckham said. “I was happy with it, but I’m more happy with the team’s performance tonight because I think we showed our character. I think we showed that when we pass the ball around we can go through teams.”

Next for the Galaxy: at Vancouver Wednesday.

    Wow thank goodness Wimbledon was over Nick! Now you can’t blame Beck’s for the result but you can take credit away from him and give it to “emotionally spent Timbers.” What a crock the Gals offense finally showed what they are capable of.

    I am concerned about Saunders, he made a couple of excellent saves but looked scared to death on the set pieces. What’s going on with him?

    What’s the latest on Omar?
