The fatigue that showed in every line on his face has vanished. The smile is back. The quips have returned. Yallop is a happy man again. Regrets? There are none.

The wheels have not only come off the Galaxy, they've rolled down the hill and disappeared. Playing in as disjointed a manner as it has in a long while, the Galaxy lost its fifth game of the Major League Soccer season Saturday night, 3-0, to the San Jose Earthquakes in front of an announced 15,917 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose. How bad was it? All three goals were scored by Galaxy players, past or present.

Lew Wolff, who owns a large chunk of the Oakland Athletics and has been known to dabble in real estate, has a new venture going. On Wednesday, Wolff, along with business partner and fellow A's owner John Fisher, were unveiled by Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber as the owners of the league's 14th team, the San Jose Earthquakes, which will begin playing -- again -- in 2008. If the name sounds familiar, it should.

Painful as it might be for Galaxy fans, they're going to be seeing Jeff Agoos play in yet another Major League Soccer championship match Sunday. The league's title game between the San Jose Earthquakes and the Chicago Fire at the Home Depot Center will mark the sixth time in the eight-year history of MLS that Agoos, 35, has appeared in the final.

Major League Soccer's San Jose Earthquakes have been relocated to Houston, effective immediately, but MLS Commissioner Don Garber said Thursday that San Jose could be granted an expansion franchise as early as 2007.

Injuries have so devastated the San Jose Earthquakes the last two weeks that the team's general manager briefly considered suiting up for tonight's game against the Galaxy at the Home Depot Center. "Stranger things have happened," said Alexi Lalas, whose credentials as a player far surpass those of any other GM in Major League Soccer. Instead, Lalas made a trade Thursday, acquiring attacking midfielder Mark Chung from the Colorado Rapids to help make up for the loss of four starters to injury.

Major League Soccer's San Jose Earthquakes could announce as early as Friday that the team will be relocated to Houston.
