Los Angeles News Group beat writer Phil Collin has the (same old, same old) SuperClasico game story.
Galaxy coach Bruce arena on the team’s good day –
“I suspected we win a game at some point this year, I think we have such an awkward schedule it’s been difficult. It’s just good to get back playing again and winning a game. You know you have to win a game, that’s the name of the game. That’s why you play. It’s important, it’s our first win. It has to establish some confidence in the team, and it’s good to just be playing again. If we had to do another two weeks of training, I think we’d kill each other, we wouldn’t have a team ready for the next game.”
Chivas USA coach Wilmer Cabrera on his team’s bad day:
“Today, since I’ve been here, today we played the worst game. As a team, individually and collectively, we didn’t play well from the beginning. It didn’t feel good and the team never looked good and today’s game is not a game that you can take lightly, especially against the LA Galaxy. They overplayed us, we were never a threat, we never came back. Today was a very bad day for all of us.”
I’ll have more on the game and what it means for both teams in Tuesday’s column.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy II plays Oklahoma City Energy FC in USL Pro action tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Cal State Dominguez Hills track and field stadium. The game will be shown live on the Galaxy’s YouTube channel.
