Lost amidst the hoopla of last week's David Beckham ceremonies was this tidbit on why the Galaxy has been shuffling re-shuffling its deck all this year.
Alexi Lalas was asked why the club made so many changes.
"There is always pressure playing for the Galaxy unlike other clubs but this is an environment that we didn’t prepare for adequately in that we didn’t identify the players soon enough that would respond to that and so what we’ve done in the past month we feel is gone out and found players who not only can perform in that but want that type of pressure, that want the eyes of the world on them."
I'm not sure who specifically he was thinking of but this year alone Lalas and Frank Yallop have gotten rid of Nate Jaqua, Robbie Findley, Shavar Thomas, Tyrone Marshall, Nathan Sturgis, Ian Russell and Santino Quaranta.
So if what Lalas said was accurate, most of the aforementioned players just couldn't handle the responsibility of playing before a worldwide audience and thus would have made the club look bad.
Well, glad those incapable-of-performing-before-the-world guys are gone. Otherwise, Tigres might have won by six or more goals on Tuesday.
