Luis noted in a recent post that the injury status reports on the MLS team official pages often aren't updated and fans don't get the newest info. Well, the Galaxy press folk got me an update on their squad and I'm posting here to let our faithful readers know the latest.
Midfielder Alvaro Pires - QUESTIONABLE - No, not his age, though he looks older than his listed age of 24 (shades of Luis Tejada? Hmmmm).. Pires took a knock to the knee.
Goalkeeper Steve Cronin - QUESTIONABLE - Not talking about Steve's attitude between the pipes, but rather a recent groin issue.
Forward/Mid Ely Allen - OUT - Hammy prob. I forget which leg. I was on the phone while downing a cosmo at the Verdugo, so apologies that I didn't get all the details.
Joe Franchino, by the way, is due in to LA on a flight tomorrow. Healthwise, he's cleared to go for the Houston game; it's more a matter of will Ruud play a guy he's only seen on video? We shall see.
