Why did the ‘Giraffe’ make a big splash at the LA Galaxy?
By Nick FolesThe LA Galaxy have just completed their third season as the Galaxy, and it’s a great time to be one of them.
After a slow start, the Galaxy are now one of the best teams in the league, and they are getting back to their old selves.
Their last two matches against Seattle and Portland have been great, and the Galaxy have a lot to be excited about heading into this weekend’s game against the Seattle Sounders.
The Galaxy have had to battle injuries in key positions for much of the season, but the team seems to be making strides.
Defender Robbie Rogers is now healthy, and he is starting to feel like he is back to his old self.
It’s a lot easier to play when you can be in your comfort zone and have confidence in your teammates.
There are some players who don’t look quite so healthy, like forward David Horst.
“David is not 100 per cent yet, but he’s progressing really well,” Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena said.
“I don’t think it’s anything that we can control.
We know what we have to do to win games.
That is something that we’ll have to work on as we continue to build our team and get ready for this weekend.”
David was on a little bit of a tear.
He was on the field with us when we had the win against Seattle.
David scored two goals, scored a couple of assists, and gave us a boost in our confidence.
Hopefully, David will continue to play at a high level, but right now, he’s in his comfort zone.

A lot of that has to do with injuries, but also due to the new-look defense, which has a lot more experienced players.
This is a good time for the team to get back to its winning ways, and that starts this weekend with the match against the Sounders.
The Galaxy have won five straight matches against the Portland Timbers, and this should be an easy match.
Seattle has been playing very well lately, but they lost their starting goalkeeper to a concussion and are without their star striker Robbie Keane.
Portland has been struggling in recent months, but it’s hard to put much stock in their results at the moment.
Both teams are coming off a 3-0 loss to FC Dallas on Saturday.
One of the things that will be interesting to see is who is starting for the Galaxy in this match.
Robbie Rogers will likely start, and there will be a few other names in the mix.
