MLS Rewind: LA Galaxy miss PK in stoppage time and fail to punish Real Salt Lake in drab 0-0 draw


Game story.

The Galaxy extended their unbeaten streak to five despite missing a stoppage time penalty on the road gifted to them by two atrocious Real Salt Lake errors in yet another “ugly” game (if I hear or see that one more time I am going to….fill in the blank).

Quotable:

“It wasn’t very good,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said for the umpteenth time this season. “But it wasn’t crazy.”

Notable:

Forward Robbie Keane missed his fifth-straight match with an injury.

Tweet Time:

Bottom Line:

“We’ll take the point and get out of here,” Arena said.

Next for the Galaxy: FC Dallas at 5:30 p.m. Saturday live on 5:30 p.m. PT broadcast live on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.

MLS Monday Video Rewind: “Lousy” LA Galaxy saved by late-goal Alan Gordon again in fortunate 1-1 tie with Colorado Rapids

Game story

The Galaxy are on arguably the worst four-game uneaten streak in club history with only another Alan Gordon header saving them from an ugly looking loss to an unimpressive Colorado Rapids side in front of a sparse crowd and now head out on a three-game road swing, their longest of the season.

Quotable:

“That’s my family,” said Long Beach native Alan Gordan of the fans chanting his name. “I paid them to say that. If you want fans, you’ve got to invite the family.”

Notable:

The Galaxy are winless (0-2-2) when trailing at half time and after conceding the first goal this season.

Tweet Time:

Bottom Line:

“The game was lousy, and everything with it was lousy,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena was quoted as saying after the game.

Next for the Galaxy: at Real Salt Lake 6:30 p.m. Wednesday on Time Warner Cable SportsNet

MLS Monday Video Rewind: Short-handed Galaxy escape from New York with a 1-1 draw against MLS-leading Red Bulls

A pedestrian Galaxy performance punctuated by two moments of brilliance — a ninth-minute Bradford Jamieson IV goal, the first in MLS for the 18-year-old, and a 74-minute Jaime Penado save on Bradley Wright-Phillips to preserve the 1-1 draw — nevertheless saw LA take two points off the Eastern Conference leaders, who are unbeaten in a half dozen straight games to open the season. Game story

Quotable:

“I think we controlled the game more today, we did a lot of the things that we wanted to today – put them under pressure, create chances, things like that,” said New York midfielder Sacha Kljestan.”We leave disappointed because we gave up an early goal off of a little small defensive one-on-one mistake, but I think the mentality was good to come back again. We got an ugly goal, we created some good chances and we probably should have scored a few more. So overall, disappointed. The Galaxy tried to kill off the game from the first minute and must’ve wasted 10 minutes of actual playing time so that annoys me.”

Notable:

The Galaxy are unbeaten in three straight games, but also have failed to win on the road in 10 straight games, going 0-5-5 during that span.

Tweet Time

Bottom Line:

“We did that things you’re supposed to do when you’re playing on the road,” said Galaxy coach Bruce Arena.

Next for the Galaxy: 7:30 p.m. Saturday against the Colorado Rapids at StubHub Center.

Oh, and that goal is worth watching again (and again):
