The emphasis of Monday's training session at The Home Depot Center was quickness off the ball and crisp, one-touch passes as the squad looks to Thursday's matchup with the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park.

The Galaxy began their only day of training in Los Angeles under grey skies and a light drizzle but the weather did little to impede a competitive and fast-paced training session that saw plenty of scoring and aggressive play.

The team held a series of four-on-four games that saw both Alex Cazumba and Tristan Bowen use their quickness to create scoring chances for their teammates. Another welcome sight at today's training session was the aggresive play and veteran leadership of defender Gregg Berhalter.

While most of the starting eleven did not take part in yesterday's training session, you can still hear what Edson Buddle, Landon Donavan and Head Coach Bruce Arena had to say about Sunday's 2-1 win against Chivas USA and this week's game against the Philadelphia Union.

Edson...

The Galaxy departed for Philadelphia this morning and look to sweep the season series after defeating the Union 3-1 at The Home Depot Center on May 1. This is the club's last road trip of the regular season, the Galaxy finish the season with two games at home-- Colorado Rapids on October 16 and FC Dallas on October 24.
