Weekly Soccer Column: Galaxy, Goats and goals (and Chivas USA make a trade)

Gabriel Farfan, Jairo ArrietaNew Goat: Chivas USA today picked up midfielder Gabriel Farfan, left, from the Philadelphia Union in exchange for their 2014 MLS draft pick (AP file photo).

The Galaxy and Chivas USA both lost over the weekend, but that’s as far as the similarities between the two clubs go, as I write in this week’s column.

In related news, Chivas USA today acquired Cal State Fullerton product Gabriel Farfan, a midfielder out of San Diego, in exchange for their first round SuperDraft pick next year.

It’s debatable just how much of an impact the 24-year-old will have, however.

He made 43 appearances for the Union over three seasons, scoring one goal.
