    The cheeky Keane goal doesn't surprise me but the full out trademark celebration did. Didn't think he still had that spring in his step!

    Just read this from Baxter in the LA TImes. Really hard to believe..

    .Kamara hasn’t gotten off to good start in China, however: Five games into Shenzhen’s season, he has yet to play a minute.

    Wouldn't he need to go through the allocation process since the Galaxy (and MLS) sold his contract to his current team. The Galaxy are at the bottom of the list now and I can't imagine that they would be able to get into a position to resign him. I am sure that other teams that need a striker would not let the Galaxy buy past them.

    Unfortunately I don’t think that would stop DTK from starting the negotiations.

    I don't think that Ola is coming back to MLS in the next year or more, so you probably don't need to worry. Nor do I think that he would be affordable. He was previously a TAM player and I am sure the Chinese club would want a transfer fee. The combination would probably push him into DP status.

    If it’s true she gave up sports it would be a shame if that were the reason.

    Too bad. Giancarlo not being able to crack the starting 11 so far along with his spotty record in Italy makes me think the Galaxy signed the wrong Gonzalez.

    It's behind a paywall* but cool article about what Magic Mike has been up to since his hip injury and retirement from soccer. It has some Galaxy tidbits as well, involving Mike, Landon and Omar as drinking buddies:

    *The Athletic has great writers and is worth the sub costto me, but ymmv. They have good but limited MLS coverage so it's probably only worth it if you are into other sports they cover as well.

    Was Justin Dhillon someone who the Galaxy missed on? He was the Academy and then played with the GIIs after college

    From the games I have watched with Los dos I don't think so.

    He joined the Tacoma defiance which is the Sounders USL. I've seen highlights of a couple of his goals and still don't think we missed out.

    He does have 6 goals in 14 games though.

    He has the physical attributes of a CF but not much upside.

    Bruin went down for the season and Morris is away with the NT. It seems to be a low risk reward to fill up space

    Hugo Arellano is 21 years old. He plays for Ocsc. He was a CB for them but only has 5 games. He stated of starting then lost his spot and now not even making the bench

    Nathan Smith is at Portland 2, 24 years old. He's still a fulback, playing both right and now left back. Stater has 18 games 1 goal and 3 assists

    Rafeal Garcia has carved out a career. 30 years old he is now in Oklahoma City. He is a starter and goes full 90 at the DM/CM spot. 22 games 4 goals and 1 assist

    Jaime Villarreal the younger brother (24 years old) is still at Sacramento FC. He starts at CM has 21 games and 1 goal

    Arial Lassiter is 24 years old playing in Puerto Rico for LD Alajuelense who play in the first tier. Season just started and he has played all 5 games going 90 mins at LW. He has 3 goals 2 assist.

    Jose Villarreal (the older brother) is in Las Vegas with Wynalda as his coach. He's still only 25 years old. He plays a CF but only has 9 games (joined late) but still no goals 2 assists.

    BJ IV is on loan (contact expires at the end of the season) in San Antonio. He's been used along the attaching front (RW SS LW CF). 19 games 5 goals and 2 assists.


    Unfortunately Jack McBean was forced to retire

    Frank Lopez is also on loan to San Antonio FC and his contract expires with us at the end of the season. He's been a hit since joining. Started all 5 games scoring 4 goals and adding an assist


    It's shame they couldn't make the 1st team but I'm glad some are finding their own path with different teams
