At least the Galaxy still has their loyal group of fans (shown here): the Angel City Brigade…

Some Brief Thoughts:
Anytime you lose to a team considered by many to be the worst in your league – by a large amount, no less – you know your season’s more or less a rebuilding one.
And your fans can forget about any hopes for a championship.
Or any post season for that matter.
That’s where this Galaxy team is at right now as the MLS season is roughly at the halfway point.
Nothing personal or malicious intended, but unless there’s a complete and miraculous turn around by this team, this will be the last article I’ll post covering the Galaxy for this year.
StubHub Center in Carson, were the Galaxy play their home games…
My goals for covering soccer on this site will instead focus on the youth and club level; an old college friend of mine has a daughter who’s currently involved in a club soccer team in the Los Angeles area, and is on the fast track to playing for a major high school program.
And if things work out right, a college scholarship.
I feel that it would be more interesting and better for this site to cover soccer on more of a grassroots level, since the sport’s biggest popularity in this country lies within the AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization), club programs, and high school teams.
I hope to have at least one article focusing on that level of the world’s most popular sport before this calendar year is over.
In the meantime, I wish the Galaxy well and hope their fortunes improve.
At least they’ll be getting some HUGE exposure when they play arguably soccer’s most elite club, the United Kingdom’s Manchester United, at StubHub Center in Carson on July 15th.
Which as far as location is a big mistake as for a team like Manchester United, the game needs to be at the Rose Bowl.
But oh well…
