Training Updates from Columbus
On Friday, the Galaxy
completed their preparations for tomorrow’s match against the Columbus
Crew with a training session at Obetz Training Center. The coaching
staff took the players through a long warm up and stretch to make sure
that everyone was properly loose following a day of travel on Thursday.
Next, the player went
through series of passing drills to further loosen up and work on their
sharpness at the same time. It was then on to positional work on both
the defensive and offensive sides followed by a run through of the set
To wrap things up the
players worked on their own for the last ten minutes. Despite the heat
and humidity it was a good training session for the team.
Here are a few comments
from head coach Bruce Arena, who looks ahead to the matchup including a
comparison between the Crew's Robin Fraser-Chad Marshall combo from
about five years ago to the Gregg Berhalter-Omar Gonzalez combo with the
Galaxy. We also caught up with Clint Mathis, Mike Magee and AJ
DeLaGarza to get their thoughts on tomorrow’s matchup of unbeatens.
