Tough luck Charlie

The PE's Jim Alexander profiles Galaxy goalkeeper Charles Alamo.

Now, if Alamo's injury had been caused by a reckless opponent barreling him down while trying to score a goal, his Galaxy teammates could rally around the event, "Remember Alamo!" as motivation.

But it seems that Alamo's afflictions were more or less self-inflicted.

I had a chat with Jim recently when he came out to the last Galaxy home game - we gloomily exchanged stories about the dire straits in the newspaper industry. Jim mentioned the importance of reporting that comes from an outside source - because otherwise, it's essentially P.R.
