Tuesday’s Column & More

A week is a long time in soccer.

In the last week Chivas USA have gone from Western Conference champions to looking like a team unlikely to survive the opening round of the MLS playoffs.

And Galaxy Coach Frank Yallop has gone from “dead man walking” to looking like he will be around next season after all.

I took a look at both stories in this week’s column.

Meanwhile to no-one’s surprise, Brazil today was awarded the 2014 World Cup, while Germany snagged the women’s version in 2011.

Finally, the basement-dwelling Loyola Marymount men, without a West Coast Conference win this season, lost yet again Monday, succumbing 2-0 at San Diego for their second loss to the same team in four days.

The 2-11-1, 0-7-0 WCC Lions travel to Oregon Thursday to meet Oregon State and on Sunday play at Santa Clara.
