The Los Angeles Galaxy kick off their home season opener tonight against the New England Revolution at Home Depot Center in the Revs first match of the season (8pm, Galavision).

The Galaxy comes off an impressive 1-0 victory against the Seattle Sounders in Seattle last Tuesday, and will be short-handed yet again, with goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, striker Juan Pablo Angel and defender Omar Gonzalez all out of the starting lineup for the second straight match.

The Revs will be looking to start 2011 with a good result after a disappointing 2010 that saw New England miss the playoffs.

SBI will be providing commentary from tonight's match so please feel free to follow along here. As always, you are welcome to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

    I love to see LAG chasing a goal. Good job NER!!!

  8. ShaggyReAL says:

    Wow….I don’t understand spanish so what was the official call on the lAG non-goal???

  9. HoBo says:

    Ref blew that call on the Galaxy goal!

  10. ShaggyReAL says:

    haha damn. LAG can’t catch a break!!!

  11. HoBo says:

    they were off sides on that one……

  12. Darwin says:

    How are you guys watching this? The link above has no video, just a LAG badge.

  13. HoBo says:

    Galaxy controlling the game, it’ll go in

  14. HoBo says:

    I was gonna say as long as they don’t get burned on a fast break… almost happened

  15. three11stu says:

    All three of the Galaxy players were offside on the initial strike. On the rebound, the first player to hit it was offide.

  16. HoBo says:

    Barrett……. what can you say

  17. ShaggyReAL says:

    It’s on Galavision!!!!

  18. BlueWhiteLion says:


  19. ShaggyReAL says:

    NER seems so much slower than LAG!!!!

    I don’t see how NER can hold on to this match for much longer.

  20. BlueWhiteLion says:

    wait . . . it’ll be called back, lol

  21. fenel says:

    break out season for Juninho

  22. ShaggyReAL says:

    He is on loan right? Which team is he on loan from?

  23. Darwin says:

    Thanks, but I wouldn’t have asked the question about streams if I had Galavision (which Ives mentioned in the first paragraph)

    At this point I’m giving up.

  24. STX81 says:

    São Paulo

  25. HoBo says:

    I was thinking they bought his contract but not sure

  26. HoBo says:

    justin tv froze on me and I missed his goal, was a nice?

  27. Sven says:


  28. HoBo says:

    lots of water on the field

  29. HoBo says:

    Joseph was off sides

  30. ChrisTheLSUTiger says:

    The Spanish language commentators are speaking about Stuart Holden’s injury right now. I really wish I spoke Spanish…

  31. MC Pharaoh says:

    Paolo Cardozo could be the next juninho from what it may look like.

    Why aren’t these Boston Companies sponsoring #Revs jerseys? #FidelityInv #Raytheon #TJX #BostonBeerCo #NStar #Akamai #Genzyme #EMC #Biogen

  33. ChrisTheLSUTiger says:

    Apparently Landon is known as “Captain LD”

  34. STX81 says:

    Well earned point for the Revs!

  35. Sven says:

    Apparently there is more to Holden’s injury than first reported. He will be giving and updated tomorrow on twitter.

  36. STX81 says:

    Because they don’t care.

  37. Eric K says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if most teams take a bunker approach against LA, especially at the HDC. Unless you have the offensive firepower to match, you’ll get buried if you don’t. LA’s going to have to show that they have the poise and patience to break down defenses stacked against them. For the Revs – considering the injuries (hard to believe at the start of the season) – a good point on the road.

  38. ... says:

    The Spanish announcers have great nicknames for most of the players. Also a fondness for using full names, if you ever want to know an MLS player’s middle name, watch a Telefutura/Galavision broadcast.
