Superclasico live thread: Becks reps our blog


So, the Haitans get a good result against the USMNT a team of Americans wearing Nike kit. Next up is tonight's Superclasico at the Home Depot Center between the Galaxy and Chivas USA. Still no Beckham, although he has returned to Southern California and spoken to the press about Landy's comments in the forthcoming Wahl book. ZOMG MLS controversy after the jump.

According to ESPN, Beckham said:

"It's unprofessional in my eyes. In every soccer player's eyes throughout the world it would be unprofessional to speak out about a teammate especially in the press and not to your face," Beckham said.

"But I'm going to turn it on a positive spin because that's what this needs. But in 17 years, I have played with the biggest teams in the world and the biggest players and not once have I been criticized for my professionalism. It's important to get this cleared up and I will be speaking to Landon either this evening or over the next couple of days."


Hopefully they can settle their differences over some Pinot Grigio and lamb pizza. Meanwhile, comment away on the match.

Edson Buddle does something correct. Max Bretos still needs a new goal call.

None of you missed anything special. 1-0 Galaxy

Apparently, EBJT wants to talk with Citeh about a 250k/pw deal. Goes to prove we are all loyal for a certain amount.

Everyone has a price. I am praying we get Ashley Young. Young and Lennon could really terrorize teams

BentPav,

We're not getting Young. Frankly, I'd be surprised if 'Arry buys a wing player, period. He's sold Zok (and a good bit of business that was, too), and he'll sell Bent. With that money, he'll buy a target man (Carew or Crouch), some cover for Palacios, and maybe some cover at RB if there's any left over. I wouldn't expect anything more than that, and honestly, I think Spurs would be better for it. We turn over the damn roster every year and get shit for it.

We had our shot at Young a few years back and blew it.
