I'm covering this week for the usual ESPN Thursday Primetime writer, Jeff Carlisle. My preview went up earlier today. If it seems heavy on Chivas USA - quotes, well, their players were available yesterday and the Galaxy didn't practice or have any media availability until today. I mean, it's not as if I could use my old Ruud Gullit quotes.
One regular feature for the previews is the Five Players to Watch. I wanted to include Ante Razov, since he always seems to score against the Galaxy, but his sprained knee means that he might not play at all.
I asked Preki today who from their long list of injured players was back for today's practice (he'd told me a few might be ready). Preki sighed and said, "No one." He did say that Maykel Galindo is practicing very lightly - and Alecke Eskandarian, "even more lightly."
