New York Red Bulls 2 LA Galaxy1

After having a header disallowed in the opening minutes, Alan Gordon finds the net again for The Galaxy equalising against New York, but Juan Pablo Angel responded almost immediately to put New York back in front. Despite Galaxy having much of the play and putting the Red Bulls on the back foot, they couldn't convert their other chances.
Beckham was in the thick of things picking up a yellow card for an overly-strong challenge, showing that he is still highly motivated and displaying enthusiasm and a good level of fitness. The Galaxy probably deserved something from the game, but their league position remained unchanged even after the loss.
Next up is an exhibition match against Vancouver on Tuesday before facing Dallas next Sunday

A game like this shows how much LA could use a striker of the likes of Carlos Ruiz (who is currently out with injury), someone who has a thing for finishing in front of goal. In saying this, however, I am starting to see a bit of maturity/confidence developing in Gordon's play.

I agree with you Todd. Gordon is gaining confidence. But I do feel the galaxy need to re-organize their defense. Remember the defense got caught off guard after the 1st goal.
