I know MLS terms are never disclosed but is Buddle "too expensive" to bench? Trust me, I'm not on Team Barrett, but some kind of remixing has to happen here.
Personally (maybe because I'm delusional) I do think we are on the mend, BUT if we keep playing like this, my big fear is that we'll win a string of games and head into "late summer collapse" territory.
I'm not putting everything on Buddle (much like no one should put everything on Gonzales) but some change is good. Shhooooot, don't get me started about how they shipped JPA across the hall when he wasn't working out.
I still cry about that sometimes...
Oh Flobo... You're just pissed about JPA getting moved still. But you do have a point. Everyone is still euphoric about Buddle. Everyone just needs to realize that we're essentially in rebuild mode. We have a lack of connecting between the groups even though they're working well together.... Meh. At least it was only 1-0Josh, that's me! (apparently... I like being redundant =P)

I've been a Buddle apologist to date, and to be fair, neither he nor Keane were getting any service at all. But Barrett did appear to lift the team. Still, it's the middle of the park where the problems lie. I wonder if Cienfuegos might be enticed to come out of retirement.
I guess limiting the damage to only one goal this week was improvement. But while the earlier losses felt at least a little bit unlucky, with shots off the post and all, this felt like a total shellacking.California Pete

- Defense looked better
- Meyer had a good game
- Saunders had a couple of good saves
- Donovan returned
I still have no idea how the team wasn't able to get a shot on goal....frustrating. It looked like Buddle/Keane made the same runs at times, interfering with each other. Then Barrett came in and LA got 2 corner kicks, and that's about it.....
It's simple. Barrett>Buddle.
Ohhh and Keane was on the floor wayyyy too much.#TeamRowe
Oh yeah and we sucked. Has someone checked that we have the real Juninho and Buddle? They could very well be strangers in Scooby Doo-type masks?
Bright side. Meyer looked better. Good enough that we don't have to throw Leo in there as soon as he can walk.“I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women: suddenly, inexplicably, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain or disruption it would bring with it.” -- Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch
I agree with every single statement above.
I don't wanna be left like this anymore.#TeamRowe
Galaxy are currently below Chivas and SJ in the standings...

Let it be known that I just deleted an essay of a post as I soon realized that the only thing that it essentially said was, "We really suck this year." There's no reason for it. We only have one position that has changed, and despite Omar's presence (or lack thereof) it shouldn't be THIS big of a miss. Our mentality has changed. Maybe we're resting on our laurels? Whatever it is, Bruce needs to inspire the team, but more than anything, OUR TEAM NEEDS TO PLAY WITH PRIDE AND SOME FUCKING SELF BELIEF AND CONFIDENCE. We're the defending champions. Play like it.An exclamation one might say if one were to meet a dragon: "Draco!!!! Strectus, Strectus, Strectus. Mortimus Sum!"
Dragon!!!! Shit, Shit, Shit. I'm going to die!
And losing to anyone from Cascadia at home will just launch a new wave unfounded arrogance through the northwest & really leave us with a mountain to climb!USA ain't nothing to f*** with!
A nights sleep and i've calmed down hopefully i am now a bit more rational, its early season, we have problems, bruce needs to sort it out, thats what he is paid for, cos the rest of the football world cant fathom how the MLS champions can become so poor so quickly. Beckham aint my favourite person but we need him back in the team or an equal quality replacement."Conjunctivitis.com - that's a site for sore eyes".
