Standings

A colleague shouted this out as the "statistic of the night" after the Chivas USA match on Saturday:

With David Beckham and Landon Donovan in tow, the LA Galaxy has the same exact record of the expansion San Jose Earthquakes.


The Galaxy almost had their first win in quite a while on Saturday. The Revs came back though to tie 2-2 after Ladnon Donovan put them up with a brace. San Jose meanwhile got a late goal from Darren Huckerby to beat Kansas City 2-1 at home.

And yes, the Galaxy and San Jose each sit on 6-9-7 with eight games left. San Jose has all the momentum while the Galaxy is twisting in the wind. Saturday's match against Real Salt Lake will of course be played without Landon and Beckham as the duo will be with their respective national teams. Not sure if San Jose will lose anyone, so they may in fact surpass the Galaxy sooner rather than later.

Yes, the Galaxy is pathetic. But they are showing some signs of life lately. I don't understand how Capello can call up Beckham, he has been pretty mediocre.

YEAH, BABY!! Take that Lalas, you stupid, arrogant moron! You too, Leiweke, you evil son of a female canine! I hope Yallop bastes both of your sorry asses in flowing gallons of crow urine after you both tried to give him a nervous breakdown last year!!!

And now for something completely different...

If Yallop and Doyle (the San Jose GM) can find people like Huckerby and Lima to solidify the Quakes' midfield, why couldn't Lalas do the same? I mean, Kelly Gray?

Inquiring minds want to know....
