    To all the people that laughed and thought that Chivas USA was a failure in the MLS due to all the lack of victorys, attendance and most importantly,Talent, "WELL ALL OF YOU GUESSED WRONG"

    With the addition of Juan Pablo Garcia, Paco Palencia, Luis Alvarez and Hector "Pirata" Castro the cry's start for all the Chiva haters.

    People will now be able to witness a true power team full of talent and experience. August will be a historic month for the the CHIVAS USA organization. Not even the metrostars were abe to build a dynamic and talanted team as fast as CHIVAS did. CHIVAS USA is here to stay and it will dominate the league, the team will only get better.

    On Saturday, October 8, The Honda Super Clasico will the true game for the Galaxy and it will be then that the true rivalry will start.

    Talent vs Talent
    Superstars vs Superstars
    Passionate Fans vs Passionate Fans
    Antonio Villaraigosa vs Drew Carey

    So for all you chiva haters please laugh :D now cause the crying will start very soon :mad:

    Only In L.A.

    I like these additions, compete I have no doubt but dominate? I'll wait and see on that one. Either way I've liked the style of play but I'll dislike this organization as long as that owner continues to spout stupid shite.(Honestly I don't want to dislike Chivas I tend to think they bring a lot of positive history and style to the league) My first MLS experience was in D.C. and with that I'll never ever have another first. Vive United.

    4 New internationals, will they have to cut three others then? Or are they just immune to the MLS international restrictions?

    I remember hearing similiar propaganda at the beginning of the season.
    No matter how you dice it, Chivas USA is the worst team in league history. They haven't even won a game in two months. Seriously, TWO MONTHS!
    They are horrendous and these new additions might add a little spark, but not much.

    MLS history has a depressing number of instances of great forwards not being able to take bad teams into the playoffs (Wynalda & the Clash, Johnson & Dallas).

    If they can figure out how to replace guys who would be cut from Primera A teams with MFL superstars & guys who get regular Tri callups and not go over the salary cap, I want my team to sign CDC USA's accountants.

    I've been excited about Chivas USA entering the league, though I'm not a Chivas USA fan. What I'm excited about is the CD Guadalajara tradition of building through a top notch youth system and whether they might be able to export that north and lead the way to the rest of the league (who shamefully has dallied on this front).

    The problem is that the fruits of anything like this are several years down the line, and in the meantime they need to satiate fans right now. Hopefully these moves will get things going in the right direction.

    At the very least, the season so far should be a valuable learning experience to Vergara, Cue and Westerhoff as to the level of the league and what it is going to take to win in it. The Revolution starting XI has featured 5 US National Teamers this year and one of their best players is not among those 5. MLS may be a new league, and it may not yet be on the level of the MFL, but that's a team with more talent on it than I'd guess the Chivas management expected to see. And while in 1st, the Revs are not dominating the league by any stretch.

    If Chivas USA embraces this challenge and takes all of the steps necessary, I'd expect this to become a very successful club.

    its not fair to say that about EJ, he was not a great forward until about midway through last season when the light just came on, and we only missed out on the playoffs by goal differential.

    Is it just me or does Villaraigosa seem to be like a Mexican equivalent of Colin Powell (or for a more apt analogy Tom Bradley)? Not too long after he won the election and Chivas invited him to a game at the HDC and FSN interviewed him he sounded like he wasn't too in touch with soccer or Chivas...I can't remember what he said but to paraphrase he said something clueless like "I'm glad that the Chiva invited me to be here" he what Chicanos would call a 'pocho' ? I'm not too up to date on LA politics so correct me if I'm wrong. Is he bilingual? Is he in touch with the Chicanos?

    Dammit, our celeb fan should be Edward James Olmos!!

    hes in touch with the latino community, he is clearly not in touch with the soccer community. he b ows to any crowd if he thinks it will bring him in enough votes. We'll see how he handles himself now hes in office.

    He is in touch with the Latino/Mexican community, but he is definetly considered a "pocho". He is bilingual, but his spanish can use some work. All the power to Villa-raigosa.

    Getting back to the thread, I'm watching Chivas RSL. Granted, it's RSL with a truly miserable back line (they're missing several players, including Eddie Pope), but nonetheless this is a continuation of Chivas' improved play over the last few games. Hans Westerhoff is a proven coach, and although Chivas does not have the horses right now, I can foresee them surprising a lot of people next season.

    I'm glad CD Chivas USA is in MLS! I always felt they would bring something different and positive to the league. And that first Clasico' match against LA Galaxy showed me all I needed to see.

    I for one have not been laughing at Chivas USA. I was frankly surprised how much the ownership underestimated the level of MLS. Particularly given the results of USA vs Mexico matches over the last few years. But I fully expect them to make adjustments and become very competative.

    Given the salary structure of MLS I realize the following scenario would be impossible. But I would love to see CD Chivas USA loaded up with first team regulars from the MFL. Because one of two things would happen. Either they would take the league by storm and raise the level of play. Or the rest of the league could laugh it's ass off watching the "Mexican super team" finish with the third or fourth best record in MLS.

    In my opinion either scenario is a winner. :D

    Good game guys! It was an entertaining match to watch and hopefully this team will bring that same intensity into Saturday. I for one hope that someday Los Angeles will hold the powerhouse clubs of MLS and not another Lakers and Clippers situation!
