    i just don't see it happening. i can't see milan wanting him that bad. and although i could possibly see galaxy not being too bothered either way from what you've wrote on here, beckham won't want to give up what he has now

    Trust me, I'm the biggest naysayer of Beckham departing, but I am starting to see evidence stack up in favor of his possible departure. Sometimes, money isn't everything.

    If he leaves, he will show a side of himself as yet unseen: a quitter.

    or something honorable? if indeed he forgoes the money

    Wow Fitz, Becks to join A.C.Milan for 6 months on loan. Who would have thunk it?

    Well you to be fair.

    I think it is stupid.

    Great guy, great for the league, wrong player for the Galaxy.
    I hope he stays in Europe to be honest.

    Having him here has meant destroying our team.

    Galaxy 2 - 2 FC Dallas

    Got back from Nor Cal just in time for this abortion.
    Red card for the Galaxy's useless Alvaro Pires in the 20'.

    Game ends in a tie, which gives insight into why neither team will be going to the playoffs. This is like relegation for our league.

    Beckham looked a little more aggressive but still made aimless passes to nowhere. he took a dive in the second half that seemed to indicate he was showing off for his Italian overlords.

    Donovan probably secured the Golden Boot against his main competitors Galaxy's Edson Buddle and FC Dallas's Kenny Cooper. He celebrated for a little extra time in our corner since it was likely his last Galaxy goal...rumored to be on the way to 'Europe' somewhere. He will really be missed. I have no idea how we will have any chance to succeed without him.

    Beckham on the other hand could go away and never come back and we will do better. We shall see what happens.

    Finally, the LA Riot Squad's Player of the Year trophy was awarded to today.
    It went to Chris Klein, the most steady player on the team all year.
    Best possible choice.

    Donovan came over at the end during our presentation to Klein and posed with him and the rest of us.

    Beckham fled.

    Favorite anti Dallas chant:
    "YOU KILLED KENNEDY!" repeated for 3 minutes.

    Last night was the galaxy Season Ticket Holder special event.

    Usually there is a BBQ, and then all the players group into threes, go into different rooms around the stadium and sit for people to come in and get autographs.

    This time, there was a scheduled Q&A for an hour featuring AEG's hatchet man (The Galaxy's owner) Tim Leiweke, and the coach Bruce Arena, Tom Payne Galaxy business minion, and Rod O'Connor the Home Depot Center's manager. We have a LOT of axes to grind with Leiweke so we were really looking forward to this Q&A with him to finally get our questions answered.

    So it kicks off with Leiweke addressing the crowd:

    He says there will be no ticket price increase for 2009, that Beckham and Donovan will be here for the start of next season (he believes it, though it is obviously an important part of the chess game that is the transfer market, which unfortunately he knows absoolutely nothing about), then 'turns it over' to Arena, Payne and Rod O'Connor and bolts out of the arena as fast as he could without actually running.

    It totally reminded me of:

    A couple more photos from the LARS POTY presentation.

    Chris Klein presents his trophy to the Riot Squad.

    Landon Donovan was very proud to have won it, and kept it in his house prominently displayed which is what we want, but apparently against team policy. **** the man!


    I can't explain why my friend Matt wears that stupid wig to each game, but he does.

    We are so screwed if Donovan leaves. We will probably have Chris Klein for one or two more years as he is getting a little aged. What a solid player though.
