Galaxy lose to Red Bulls 1-0


After a 1-0 home loss to the New York Red Bulls, it is time to press the L.A. Galaxy Panic Button. The last eight days were not good. Last Saturday the Galaxy managed a draw at home against FC Dallas with a stoppage time goal from Pat Noonan. Wednesday saw the Galaxy lose for the first time in Seattle 2-0 and get completely dominated in the process. Bruce Arena made the controversial decision to leave Beckham and Keane at home, bench Magee, Buddle, and Dunivant, and start reserves in order to rest the starters. Sounders television analyst and former US goalkeeper Kasey Keller called the move insulting, however the Sounders gladly accepted the gift wrapped three points which included the sparkling, 35 yard possible goal of the year from Freddy Montero. The loss in Seattle made winning against a depleted New York Red Bulls team essential. After all, the Red Bulls would be without Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez and the Galaxy would be fresh after taking Wednesday's game against the Sounders off. The only problem is that New York had other ideas, the Galaxy offense continued to struggle, and now the Galaxy find themselves with a mere 10 points and in 7th place in the West.
