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 plays. 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.
