Club Over Country

COVERAGE NOTE: While the World Cup is going on, the DCenters will still be focusing on MLS and DC United, with the occasional post internationally or about the USA. There are several great World Cup blogs out there, so I totally understand if you don't come around here for a few weeks.

LA GALAXY SCOUTING REPORT: The 11.12 Match Preview will go up tomorrow, but did anyone stay up for Chivas - LA last night? A decent game to watch. LA was clearly fighting to impress new coach Frank Yallop, especially in the second half. It is clear they have problems finishing right now, but their effort running through the midfield was improved (it's doubtful that's an effect of coaching, and much more likely to be a "Let's impress the new boss" type of thing.) Also, Lalas gave an interview during the second half. Note that while he praised Yallop, he never promised job security. There was no "we'll give him the season to figure things out." Instead it was "We'll hold Yallop to the same standard as Sampson." See, that's how you avoid the entire dishonesty problem.

Chivas should have won lat night 3-1. They had some chances in the second half that they miffed on due to wanting to get Razov the hat trick.

The Galaxy looked ok, but nothing that has me worried about for the United match.

D, if you have thoughts on the WC, put it on the WCRT blog. I'm getting tired of myself over there...

Same here, if you have thoughts you want to share about the World Cup leave them at Pseudo Corner Kick! Thanks.

Did anyone know what was up with the blue unis for L.A. last night?

Snazzy, yes, but I have no idea why they decided on blue one night.
