    I don't want to think too hard on this until it looks more like it really might happen. Somebody is going to have to fill that DP spot, though.

    There was a goal.com article the other day that quoted an unnamed source saying it was about a done deal. Bruce Arena admitted this week they had talked to Lampard, but that was it. Ill believe it when I see it signed and dated.

    Also on LA Galaxy insider Bruce arena said he thinks Donovan will definitely play this year. They are just working in the return date.

    Take that for whatever its worth.

    I'd say an opening day hat trick from mike magee is a good start.

    I get the feeling Keane really likes playing with Magee. He seems to be in the right place at the right time, and was able to move without interrupting Keane's space so to speak. Keane also went out of his way to refer to Magee as "world class" after the game.

    And of course, I base this on 1 game.

    I get the feeling that Keane really enjoys playing with the Galaxy in general, and, I must admit, he continues to surprise me that way. I think there's always a question mark when players come from tougher leagues to play in the MLS on what their attitude will be, and Keane has been amazing. I think he is relishing his role as a team leader. Last season and this, he's proven to be a good captain when given the opportunity. He definitely has no problem communicating, yet despite his arm flailing and hilarious facial expressions, he also manages to maintain his humility. I'm really amazed by him.

    Maybe he benefited from coming in at a time when Beckham had finally bought in, but when Keane calls Magee "world class," I feel like he is being sincere at the same time he is being strategic. Speaking of sincerity, I don' think it does take more than one game to figure out what Keane is thinking, because he doesn't appear to make any secret of it, and he'll provide feedback right away. The only reason it might take more than one game is for the viewer to realize that Keane means what he says.

    I really like Magee right now, too. He just keeps getting better. When he first came to the Galaxy, I thought he was a disaster, but, to be fair, I didn't (and still don't ) know much about soccer, either. However, from a layman's standpoint, it seemed like I was always yelling at him from the stands for a giveaway or some other bonehead thing. Two qualities he always had though were a strong work ethic and a lack of fear. Maybe the lack of fear got him into trouble at times, but it is really paying off for him now (has been really now for 2+ seasons). I continue to see the time when Beckham was out with the Achilles injury as the major turning point for this franchise, and none moreso than Magee. I think two of his goals in the opener could be considered world class.

    I completely agree also, about Keane and Magee playing well together in terms of space. One of the reasons I was so glad Keane scored was because I thought he was playing a great game and also really helping keep things organized out there. Also, Keane's goal made me think of Ba's goal for Chelsea on Saturday.

    Sorry to go on so long, but Sunday's match is actually a lot more exciting to think about than it was to watch, since it was such a lopsided victory. Plus, I enjoy your soccer posts; I feel like I learn more by reading them.
