    Default All Things: LA Galaxy, LAFC and MLS

    No need to keep putting new years on this, it seems.

    Anyway, this 2017 LA Galaxy squad is not faring so well. They depleted their already limited depth at back when they sold AJ De La Garza, and with Robbie Rogers out indefinitely they are hurting. They are even more deficient at forward, where they remain essentially without a true starting striker. I presume they are holding the spot in the wild hopes of landing Ibrahimovic, which doesn't seem like is going to happen.

    The one area where they do have impressive depth is at midfield, where Romain Alessandrini has outshone the entire squad, well deserving of his DP slot. Unfortunately, from day one, he's seemed like the only player on the club who is interested in putting the ball in the goal. Lletget may have been his equal, at least in terms of hunger to attack, had he not been injured, but obviously that is not the case now.

    This is shaping up to be a long season. I'm going to get my Ashley Cole shirt while I still can, since I don't have a Chelsea shirt for him.

    Ibra is out until early next year with a knee injury. That actually might be a positive in regards to signing him. Not sure why United would want to pay his wages for half a season that he is going to miss but they can afford it.

    Is Keane still unsigned? Even with a good center forward this team isn't winning MLS Cup but it's not even a playoff team unless they can find one to score some goals.

    AFAIK, Keane has not been signed by anyone.

    Does Pedro still exist?

    They suck. Playoffs? Playoffs?

    The #Onalfoout and #Vagenasout tags are growing.

    When I first got my season tickets, there were loud chants of "Fire Sampson."

    Saturday was brutal, and Tuesday was even worse. You know the Galaxy are thin on personnel when the captain is Dave Romney.

    Even the in-stadium graphics crew botched it on Tuesday.

    And the fireworks company they hire is the absolute worst.

    I actually meant to write Tuesday up above, but I guess they're interchangeable.
