MLS: A bunch of LA Galaxy Dummies Beats Seattle

Western Conference Final: LA Galaxy 3 Sounders 0

Staff Writer Phil Collin has the game story.

The Seattle perspective is considerably gloomier.

Notable: (to update an OptaJack Tweet from just before Sunday’s game): Robbie Keane and Mike Magee combined have scored 10 of the Galaxy’s last 12 goals.

Quotable: “Next week they’ll have Eddie [Johnson] from the start, my guess is they’ll have Rosales from the start and they’re a much different team at home than they are on the road,” said Galaxy playmaker Landon Donovan. “They beat us 4-0 earlier in the year and there’s no reason why they can’t do that again so we’ve got to be prepared.”

    Fact: The Galaxy could and should have scored more.
    Fact: Sounders have already beat the Galaxy 4-0 so they know they can do it but this might be to the Galaxy’s advantage because they will be a little more concerned about the possibility of giving up four again.
    Fact: having the odds stacked against you in the second leg gives you a ‘we have nothing to lose’ mindset and can help your confidence. Just look at the Gals in San Jose!

    It’s going to be a very intriguing second leg.
