LA Galaxy 1 Columbus Crew 0

First goal for defender Sean Franklin seals a much-needed win for The Galaxy. Back with a win after a poor week last week, keeping The Galaxy at the top of the Western Conference.
The game was frustrating for The Galaxy who failed to find the net until half-way through the second half. Angel squandered a good chance after half an hour chipping the keeper but missing the goal. A multitude of corner kicks failed to penetrate the Columbus defence, and it was a free-kick won and taken by Beckham that save the day. The kick was low into the wall and fortunately fell into the path of Franklin who executed a great hit from around 30 yards, low and hard, the shot caught a Columbus foot on the way through, and despite the keeper getting a hand to it, it shot past him and nestled in the back of the net.
The game was blighted in extra time when in the midst of some time-wasting tactics employed by LA (never been a fan of this unsporting behaviour..) Beckham got himself yet another booking for delaying a restart at a free kick, and yet another suspension for the match next week.
Never mind, they clash with Man City on Sunday, regarded by many to be the new Galacticos having been thoroughly beaten by the old Galacticos (Madrid) last week...
