If you read this blog with any regularity, you’ll know by now that I’m not particularly enamored with the current Los Angeles Galaxy Front Office. On this occasion, they’ve even impacted the planned content of my blog. I had planned to write about the upcoming David Beckham statue. I even had the opening paragraphed laid out.

The year was 2003. The 2002 MLS season had seen the Los Angeles Galaxy become Champions for the first time. What’s more, they would be defending that title in a new home. Since 1996, they had been playing in Pasadena’s iconic Rose Bowl. Playing in a legendary, 90k-seater venue might sound like the stuff of […]Read more "New Galaxy Season – Same Out of Touch Front Office"
Warning fair reader. Owing to a possible maintenance oversight that has seen my ushering puddles of rainwater out of my swish OC bachelor pad, I may be snarkier than usual. To get myself away from this irritating First World Problem, I turned to social media for a timely distraction. What would I find there?

Many who lobby for pro/rel, who believe in its purported benefits, would also be […]Read more "Culture! Authenticity! REAL Clubs!"
Well, our attack almost salvaged the season. With a 2-0 lead at halftime, in a home game versus the long-eliminated Houston Dynamo, knowing that victory would secure a berth in the playoffs, the Galaxy’s defence reverted to type and collapsed like a kitten trying to give Sigi Schmid a piggyback. A 3-2 loss (a draw […]Read more "The LA Galaxy 2018 Season In Review"
Well, the good news is that the LA Galaxy aren’t mathematically out of the playoffs. The bad news is that it’s mathematically possible in the same way that I could technically hook-up with Gal Gadot: I’d be very excited if it happened but it scarcely bears serious consideration. It is for this reason that Siegfried […]Read more "Sigi Departs But the Galaxy’s Issues Run Deeper"
