It was not just another day at Galaxy training. The squad followed up yesterday's solid training session with another high-paced, high-energy workout on Tuesday.
This is not Pee-Wee's Playhouse, so there is no word of the day. But if there was, focus would probably have been it.
Just take a look a look at following photo...
As you can see by the look on the faces of Michael Stephens, Chris Birchall and Eddie Lewis, there was a toughness, a blue-collar mentality to Tuesday's proceedings. These guys definitely looked focused on getting things back on track in Chicago.
While the above three provided the toughness, A.J. DeLaGarza provided the speed-- he was all over the field, flailing his body in front of shots and would be attackers to help the defense.
David Beckham continued to work on his fitness. Beckham, who was placed on the DL on July 15, is eligible to come off the Disabled List for this weekend's game.
After working on some five-on-five and seven-on-seven drills, a lot of the guys stayed behind to work on finishing. Mike Magee, a Chicago native, would like nothing more than to come home and score one in front of family and friends.
Josh Saunders was not making it easy on Magee, Bryan Jordan, Edson Buddle, Tristan Bowen and the rest of the guys that were participating in this drill.
Buddle did manage to score a few, though. He's looked pretty good in training the last few days.
After training, Bowen talked to Troy Bardy about the upcoming game in Chicago and if the 3-2 loss on Aug. 1 was still something the team was thinking about. Check out what Bowen had to say on Galaxy Raw tomorrow, only on lagalaxy.com.
Not sure what A.J. is trying to do in this photo, but we definitely don't want to mess around with these guys. Hope Chicago is ready.
