Walking wounded

The Galaxy, bitten by the injury bug earlier this year, had a mini-relapse versus Chivas.

Kyle Martino was out due to a groin strain.
Chris Albright had surgery to repair a torn ligament - and is still expected to be out another month.
Cobi Jones aggravated his painful heel problem - the same one that is causing him to retire this year.
David Beckham - Still has serious swelling of bad ankle.
Edson Buddle - Achilles heel problem has affected both feet.

"My heel isn’t quite there yet," said Buddle. "My right’s fine. My left is coming along, but it’s still sore."

Buddle pointed out that the crush of games wasn't being kind to the recovering players.

"There have been a lot of games back to back. Hopefully, we’ll be ready for the league games."

Fact: Andrea always accuses (rightly so) the Mexican NT players with excuse making when they have lost to the USMNT in the past.

This looks like Andrea is making excuses for the loss to Chivas!

Say it ain't so!!! :-)

Andrea: It's light-hearted humor, a joke. Have a laugh before you go replying with your typical self-righteousness...

I got an email asking why Buddle was put in so late into the game and where was Cobi? So I posted here the run-down of Galaxy injuries.

What's funny is how you like to jab at my replying to readers as self-rightousness.
