I didn't really blame Frank Yallop for a lot of what went wrong this season. I felt he had a lot to deal with, with Beckham coming over, and virtually nobody to help him prepare for that. Plus, when you toss injuries into the mix it's asking a lot from anyone to survive that. Yes, he made a lot of deals and I think the Ugo-and-Herc-for-Cannon deal was not a good one but there was still enough on the team that had injuries not decimated the side could have gotten better results.
Anyway, here's my column on Yallop's resignation. I threw in Yallop's Top 10 Galaxy games which wasn't too hard a list to come up with, simply because there weren't many games to choose from. Sigi Schmid's top 10 Galaxy games, well, that might take some time to compile.
The one game that was probably number 11 that maybe should have been on there was the Galaxy's 1-0 win in Houston at Reliant on Aug. 9, 2006. That one probably should have made the list but I didn't see the game as I was in Mexico at the time and it just kind of faded away, unlike the 5-2 win in D.C. when I listened to it on the radio on the way to a Chivas USA game, goal after goal after Galaxy goal.
