Long Beach’s Alan Gordon returns to Galaxy from San Jose Earthquakes

You remember this guy, don’t you?

A decade after he was first drafted by the Galaxy and scored just 16 goals in 80 appearances over six years, the Galaxy gave the Earthquakes an unspecified amount of allocation money today to re-acquire forward Alan Gordan.

“Alan is a proven MLS player who adds another scoring threat to our roster,” coach Bruce Arena said.

Optimistic, isn’t he?

Gordon, now 32, scored 23 goals with San Jose and had stints with Toronto and Chivas USA.

More from sister newspaper the San Jose Mercury News is here.

What do you think. Are the Galaxy regressing or progressing with a apparently short-ter signing like this. Guess it’s an admission Rob Friend isn’t exactly working out, huh?

    Gordo!!!

    I dunno. Late sub up top once in a while, better than what we’ve been able to manage all year (Friend, Samuel, etc). Maybe we should see if Chad Barrett is available.

    Nick, the worst thing about that video is being reminded of what it was like to have Cudicini in goal. I still have nightmares…
