    Sean Franklin is one of the BIG reason for the poor start. HE was THE reason for the collapse against RSL.

    Gonzo is. Compare the defense last year with this year’s. All the players but Gonzo are the same and the defense is atrocious now.

    This is the kind of LAG news I like to see.

    Franklin clearly doesnt want to be the RB nor should he be. He should be a RM/winger so goldy locks is more central thus Franklin makes deep runs like a Theo Walcott player to then cross into the middle for Buddle or Keano to head in. I think him and AJ being out of position the most. Seriously why does the shortest guy on the team think he will win a header against someone 8 inches taller?

    It’s simple, really. Gonzo is THAT good. All agreed?

    It’s gonna be a rough season. Last year’s team was built entirely around a rock solid defense, then team pressing. We won a slew of games 1-0. Take away the stout defense and it starts to become expected that LA concedes at some point every game under heavy pressing. Leonardo might remedy things a bit, but with the time to get game-fit and sharp it’s probably not gonna happen soon enough. I just hope we make the playoffs.

    Raul Mendiola is a name all fans need to familiarize themselves with. Hopefully he stays in MLS instead of going abroad… for the good of the US national team. If he goes abroad his chances of ever becoming a US citizen drop dramatically. As it is, who knows if he will become one in time or if he will be the next Andy Najar. If I could get politicians involved in speeding up the citizenship process for two kids, it would be Mendiola and Fagundez… too bad there is no political will for such a thing.

    The Galaxy are very overrated. Their defense is not good at all with Gonzales. Dunnivant and Franklin are average at best. They have a good attack, but their midfield is not strong. Beckham is over the hill.
    They need to get rid of a DP and recruit one at a position they actually need.

    Franklin has all the ability in the world…the explosive first step…the speed…the athleticism…

    He should quit football and take up something that does not require intelligence on the field. Im willing to bet he would be a great distance runner.

    I think it’s fine that we want other players who where not born in the US, to play for the US national team but I think it’s time we start growing our own players. The US u23 that failed to qualify to the Olympics had a few players who could have easily chosen to play for another country, but they didn’t because they know it’s easier to get in the US team then getting into the German,Mexican, or Colombian team. I want a player in my team because he wants to represent it, not because he has no other choice. Joe Corona was called up by Mexico but didn’t play, and I guess failed to catch the Mexican coach’s eye, and was cut from Mexico’s U23 thus joining the US u23. I think we need more players like Shea from FC Dallas.
