"But please don't take this personally...
No I'm happy to visit, but I'm happier to leave.
And I guess what it is I'm trying to say is.
'I can't stand LA!'"
- "I Can't Stand LA", Bowling for Soup
Given how our season has gone since TFC last met the Galaxy and knocked them out of the previous Champions League, I'm sure the Reds will be singing those words. Or maybe not?
LA is getting close to clinching their ticket to defending their title, while we pretty much have little to be excited about. A shame, given how well our season was supposed to go after we dispatched them. But alas, injuries and just plain awfulness once again prevented us from really, giving us something to cheer about. But hey, things can only get better from here...right? (We can only hope.)
One thing's for sure -- there won't be Eric Hassli. But on the other hand, there ain't no David Beckham to deal with, since both of them are almost 99.9999999% certain to be out with injuries. There's still Robbie Keane and our favourite Landycakes to deal with. Not to mention Omar Gonzalez (whom we didn't see in March), Juninho, Christian Wilhelmsson...the list goes on, as James tells you here, they're good, with plenty of weapons. But no matter how much firepower they pack, it seems they somehow struggle against TFC, having gone 3-2-5 in the last 10 meetings. Maybe it'll be more of the same again?
