I can't go. Sold my tickets.

Glad to see that Omar will be back.

Thankfully, I got to see Manchester United back when Beckham first came to Galaxy. There are a few players added since then that I'd like to see, but foremost would have been van Persie, of course, who isn't playing.

Was going to go, but getting in and out of the rose bowl is such a pain. And an 8:00 start on a weeknight with a baby at home is tough, so I sold my ticket. (well the galaxy website says 7:30, but my dvr says 8:00)

I went many years back when Man U played Club America at the Coliseum, and it was a good time. (last year galaxy vs. tottenham was very meaningful for me too).

Van Gaal is already complaining about the US tour, and supposedly some big guns for the Man U squad won't be playing tonight. But I fully expect Chicharito to get a good run in for the LA crowd.

The Galaxy scrubs that were dressed were embarrassed by Man U tonight 7-0. My gawd, what bad soccer to watch.

I'm a huge Galaxy fan and part of the riot squad, but I watched Manchester United when I was younger and fell in love in soccer. It was a dream of mine to see ManU play and what a hell of a game it was. Bottom of my stomach had a pit in it watching the G's get their ass kicked,but what a fantastic game. Loved every minute of it.

I went to the Club America/Man U game at the Coliseum in 2003, got me hooked on the Red Devils.

I'm kinda confused by these comments you say you're a huge Galaxy fan, yet you loved every minute of the Galaxy being mauled by ManU, it seems it would be kinda a hard to do that.

I was in the same predicament last year when Spurs played the Galaxy, I was so conflicted I didn't attend the game or go on any message boards of either team till it was over, I wasn't happy or sad after the game because both teams I love were playing each other and I couldn't love every part of that game.

Where does it say I enjoyed watching the Galaxy get mauled? I said I had a pit in my stomach watching it, but I enjoyed watching the match,cause it was ManU, and it was a dream of mine to see them play. Never said I enjoyed watching the beatdown.

this part "Loved every minute of it." was the part I was not understanding, which to me means you love everything about it.

I'll just drop it now, no harm no foul, just curious about the wording and still a bit peeved how the Galaxy performed.

Galaxy are in the middle of a season and do not want to expend energy or risk injury for no points. Man U. are preseason, doing warm ups and show offs for the manager to earn a spot on the team.
Galaxy are a good team in the MLS, there is no comparison with Man U.

I'm with Dawdler....the Tottenham/Galaxy game was more of a glorified scrimmage, in which I could tell myself the outcome had absolutely no meaning.

Most of these pre-season friendlies are meaningless except for the money grabs. But I have to say, if they scheduled say a Tottenham vs. Arsenal friendly here, that'd be pretty tasty...
