No shocker here, America and Chivas play a preseason friendly in downtown LA and 88k show up. No surprise there. Funny thing, the LA Goats played the Galaxy as the warm up act and get to count the attendance in their season average. That one match probably had more attending than their other 14 home matches combined….well, less the ones where they played the Galaxy.
Well, LA managed to pull off the season sweep… though it took a penalty in the final 10 minutes to do it. I watched the match and it’s amazing how different the team are with and without Donovan. I shudder to think how bad LA would be without him. Anyway, I guess it’s a good thing for Sampson this was an expansion year…otherwise he wouldn’t have 8 matches against teams even worse than the team he’s put together. The sad bit is, I’m still not confident LA will maintain their 100% record of making the playoffs every season.
