Melfice, I was there too....froze out butts off, too bad we couldn't get a victory. Don't think I've ever been to a game where a team had THREE goals called back for various infractions. Plus a non-call on an obvious handball in the box.
I'm sure the Galaxy would like to play at least one game this season that wasn't impacted by the weather.

Yeah KHenry! What a game and the goals that were called back lol Insane I tell ya, but it was a good game over all. LA gave up the first goal, but then took control of the game afterward.
I'm thinking about buying a big 6 pack game deal for the Galaxy. I did enjoy going there tonight even tho it was WET and COLD as a mother haha
Did you enjoy the game, KHenry?

Certainly the Galaxy played better than againist Seattle, despite still missing Gonzalez (his presence was sorely missed), Ricketts (NBD since Saunders is excellent) and JPA for a half. Even though I've never been more miserable at any sporting event in my life, once the game started, you didn't notice it. And I feel so fortunate to live 15 minutes from the HDC, the best Soccer Specific stadium in the country. It makes even the worst days like yesterday acceptable.

for the first time in awhile I decided to skip the home opener. Power outage from 2:00 pm on, a sick wife, and flooding in the parking garage meant a no go.
Sounds like it was pretty wild at the stadium. Numerous people told me the ponchos were of lesser quality than something you'd find at a 99 cent store and did almost more bad than good. I got an e-mail this morning that for those season ticket holders who braved the storm, the Galaxy are giving them free tickets to the April 2 game.
Another rocket from Juninho. He and Cardozo might have a great partnership forming. Cardozo seems to be small, but plays big. Thought Angel looked pretty good in being able to read passes once he came in. Although with those pitch conditions you can't really read a whole lot..

The ponchos were essentially blue colored Saran Wrap, and they worked OK. They'd have worked better had there been no wind, but the blustery conditions meant that the poncho hood wouldn't stay up, so your head got wet no matter what you did.
Not sure about Cardoza. He seems to be talented (and he is a little guy) but right now, I think Michael Stephens is a better bet for a sub midfielder. I suspect that the conditions might have impacted Cardoza's game a lot, but since there's a long way to go this season, I'm more than willing to see what he can do. But I wouldn't be surprised to see Bruce start Cardoza at some point and move Juninho to D-Mid role.

yeah terrible showing by the G's, I'm chalking it up to not having Landon, Omar and Ricketts on the pitch tonight.
March 26th, 2011, 11:37 PM #39
Yeah LA did not show up to play tonight did they lol
