Galaxy Tonight

July 27, 2008|Grahame L. Jones

at Dallas, 4 PDT, FSN West

Site -- Pizza Hut Park, Frisco, Texas.

Radio -- 570, 1330 (Spanish).

Records -- Galaxy 6-6-5, FC Dallas 4-6-7.

Record vs. FC Dallas -- 1-0-0.

Update -- The Galaxy's winless streak has reached five games at 0-2-3 but could end tonight in Texas, where Los Angeles scored a 5-1 victory over FC Dallas in May. Edson Buddle, who had a hat trick in that game, reportedly has caught the eye of several European teams because of his career-high 11 goals this season. League-leading scorer Landon Donovan supposedly is the target of an English Premier League team, although his comfort level in Southern California is such that rumors of a move to England are more likely the opening gambit in his quest for a hefty new contract. Not one team in the Western Conference has a winning record (only three MLS teams do), but a victory for the Galaxy could lift it back into first place ahead of Real Salt Lake. Dallas striker Kenny Cooper and midfielder Juan Toja are negotiating transfers to as-yet-unspecified teams in Europe, with Rosenborg Trondheim of Norway believed to be pursuing Cooper.
