    lame

    “I got spit on about 30 times tonight, so I’m not too happy with that. But besides that, their fans were very pro-them, but anytime you’re getting spit on, you’re not going to leave happy,” said Magee. “I don’t want to sound like I’m whining, but spitting's disgusting. I’d rather somebody punch me than spit on me.”

    Maybe they realized Magee was on fire, so they were trying to extinguish it.

    Nice win last night. Villareal's shot was pretty sweet.

    Galaxy get Monterrey in next round.

    I like the G's starting 11 last night. Is that the preferred lineup until Landon returns? And then?

    Probably or close to it. Keane seemed equally frustrated with Villareal at times, and also equally on par with his timing of runs. If anything Villareal's attack almost caused Magee to have to sit back a little bit. How they fit in Donovan will be interesting, with the Sarvas/Juninho midfield on a pretty good level and with Keane/Magee/Villareal all viable attacking options.

    After seeing the lesson of last Sunday's Manchester United v Chelsea match, I like the idea of keeping Sarvas in there. He fills the role that Mikel did for Chelsea in their second half comeback, hopefully with the same results: allowing the attacking players to feel free to go forward, knowing Sarvas will have their backs. Is that considered a holding mid? If not, what would that be called?

    Regardless, last season I could see that Sarvas really filled in nicely for the loss of Birchy in this way (when he was used), but I never knew why until last weekend. That is a hard-working position to fill. Come to think of it, it may even be that the lack of such a player in our midfield for much of the season may have resulted in our defensive falloff?

    Birchall used to be my favorite G, because he always seemed to be the guy to appear out of nowhere and stop the ball, and I was set to get a Marcelo shirt this season for those same reasons. However, I'll probably end up getting both a Marcelo and a Keane shirt this season. Maybe Juni, too.

    Well, it was a beautiful afternoon, and a lovely day to be out. Other than that, I concur.

    Keane left an ireland qualifier with some kind of calf injury. No word on if, how long, he'll be out. Really hope that doesn't cause him to miss the upcoming champions league games with Monterrey..
