Perspectives on the beautiful game of soccer; fueled by enormous amounts of coffee
interesting quote from jones at the bottom where he responds to a charge that he implied Beckhams goal was cheap:"Reply: Since when has the word "weird" been negative?"This from a guy that uses words for a profession....I don't remember a time when "wierd" wasn't negative..... saying it was a "weird" goal left me with a negative impression as well... as if he couldn't bring himself to praise such a thing. All he could do was say it was "wierd" ... which he defends as being simply unusual.But the overall tenor of the article felt like it was written by a guy who just couldn't bring himself to say much positive about the galaxy.
I refuse to click on the link and give him any hits. He couldn't be bothered to go out and get a real story - he takes the lazy man's way out and lets the readers write his articles. He doesn't do his job, does no research, does no pregame interviews, very, very little postgame interviews.He's a pompous jerk and I have no respect for him. Too bad the LA Times can't employ a real writer.
Whatever the merits of Grahame's arguments regarding Donovan's PK and Beckham's long-distance strike, I'd wish he train his howizers on Galaxy management (i.e., Lie-weke and Lalas) in his daily on-line columns. Those amateurs get away with far too much from the local soccer press.
