    16 days to opening day, Frankie should be close the choosing his starting 11. Should be intresting how many minutes Chimbonda gets, Frankie needs to play him in the next three games to see if he will make the cut. So as of right now it's between Pause, Anibaba and Kinney at RB, if Chimbonda impresses that would make four players for Frankie to chose from.


    So two positions that are up for grabs, LM and RB. LM we have Alex, Duka and Atouba at RB we have Anibaba, Kinney, Pause and Chimbonda.

    I truly hope this Chimbonda is a good deal.

    As somebody I asked on a Spurs forum I frequent (who is also a galaxy fan) pointed out, fullbacks is probably still one of the weakest position in MLS, so it wouldn't take too much for Chimbonda to be good.

    Unfortunately couldn't find anybody who has heard much about him since his time at Spurs, so they weren't too helpful. Other than that he apparently hasn't always had the best attitude (aka didn't care much), which held him back

    That's the impression I got when watching him play. He has all the talent in the world, but looks more interested in getting paid than playing.

    By the way, I expect our starting line up to be

    MacDonald-Rolfe
    Alex-Lindpere-Larentowicz-Nyarko
    Sega-Berry-Arne-Pause
    Johnson

    Atouba and Chimbonda might get run-outs in the second half. Anybody know how many subs are allowed in these games?

    That scoreboard in the upper left hand of the stream is quite annoying.

    I guess the true indicator that MLS has :made it" will be when we don't have to watch preseason matches through crappy streams

    Interesting that Chimbonda doesn't even get a bench spot here. Also that Atouba continues to be second line, despite being one of the brightest players so far

    I don't mind the low production value, single camera internet streams, because these games would hardly be of interest to non-fans, they are hardly entertaining affairs and are more about fitness than playing an actual game.

    But they have got to be able to get a higher quality stream than this. its so blurry

    From what could be seen on the goal, it looked like the Fire wall failed to do its job leaving Sean John stranded.

    backpass by pause causes Berry to foul.....it's only getting worse.

    It looked like a low driven shot, something the wall should have blocked

    Duka & Segares look better on the left than Nyarko & Pause on the right.

    It has to be Pause's fault that the stream is down.
