A dismal 2-0 loss in Dallas on Wednesday followed by a halfway brilliant 3-2 home victory on Saturday vaulted the LA Galaxy to the top of the Western Conference, as Real Salt Lake and LAFC played to a 1-1 stalemate.  Bewildered fans must hear confusing terms in their heads, like bipolar, split personality, manic depressive or petulant adolescent.  In a few short days how can the same team wander listlessly about the pasture against the eleventh place Hoops and scorch the fourth place Rapids for the entire first half? Corner of the Galaxy’s Josh Guessman wondered why the Galaxy even b ..read more

 Of all the Galaxy players on the 2024 roster, only Miki Yamane qualifies as a bonafide winner, collecting seven J-League trophies over eight seasons with two different teams, and best eleven honors three times.  Winners make teams better because only teams can win trophies in soccer.  Talented players like Riqui Puig, Joseph Paintsil and Gabriel Pec cannot yet claim to be winners, because they either played for teams that won no trophies, or they did not feature as integral part of a winning team. Take for example Riqui Puig, who debuted for the Barcelona first team at the age ..read more

Scoring in every team sport depends in part upon deceiving and overpowering opponents.  Great soccer players like Lionel Messi unbalance opponents by changing speed and direction to make space, open passing lanes and pull defenders out of position.  Powerful players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic position themselves to dominate with sheer athletic prowess. No one player on the 2024 Galaxy possesses all three of these qualities.  Gabriel Pec can change direction at pace.  Joseph Paintsil can change speed. Riqui Puig changes direction and pulls defenders out of position, but always ..read more

Great teams develop an identity, a set of core beliefs and values that form characteristic mentality, expressed as a recognizable personality during games.  A strong personality shares beliefs and values within the team, understands what means on the field, and imposes it on opponents. Great coaches like Bruce Arena, Alex Ferguson, Jurgen Klop, Pep Guardiola, and more recently Xabi Alonso, build a culture that sustains team identity across seasons and roster changes.  On rare occasions a club develops an identity that lasts for generations, like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Ajax.  ..read more
