While nothing continues to go on in MLS per se, there remains a bit of an offseason shuffle for
loans and trades. There's been talk of some pretty huge names going across the pond, be it for a

The biggest news of the week is that there is no news for this week. With the roster freeze
coming at 2 PM PDT on Wednesday, the LA Galaxy announced only one change. That was bringing
Yohance Marshall back from loan to the USSF D-2 Austin Aztecs, a team that enjoyed
several weeks at the top of the second division of North American futbol this season.
Paul kennedy of Soccer America with a report, video included, on the end of David Beckman's World

Galaxy season as well.
While David Beckman may tell us all it's Sunshine, Puppies and Roses in LA, he tells the AC Milan
website something slightly different: DAVID BECKHAM: "I hope to come back to Milan. They stayed in
my heart and sincerely I am confident we can see each other again in November.

ended 3-3 and we lost 4-2 on PK's to Kansas City (Damn!).
OK, I was gonna wait to start more Galaxy-bashing until tomorrow, but this couldn't wait.
Also, quote from former San Jose Earthquake George Best: "He cannot kick with his left foot, he cannot head a ball, he cannot tackle, and he does not score many goals. Apart from that, he's all right."
