Pues, que malo

Galaxy pierde otra vez.

It is almost perdictable. The Galaxy come out with some good energy in a match, put together a few decent plays, but lack the precision to put away their chances. Through hard work, they get an early goal (or an early tying goal) but waste other good opportunities (Donovan PK, Gordon and Glinton headers tonight) and then one of the makeshift backline guys breaks down with a mistake.

It usually happens in the second half, and I have to think that tired legs are a factor, though not, of course, an excuse. It's weird to see, though. Even if they're up by a goal, it just feels inevitable that the opposition will run over a team that wearies in the second half. The players seem to act that way, too.

Against Colorado, they didn't look confident until they'd established a two-goal lead. Even that was looking shaky by the end. That attitude isn't helping.
