LA Galaxy soup, with a dash of David Beckham!

With 31 days left until LA Galaxy’s season opener, it’s time to get caught up on all things LA Galaxy, starting with training camp!

LA kicked off their training camp last week. They aren’t going on a tour since the off-season is short. Here’s a video to get you caught up.

Robbie Keane and Juninho are planned to be back in camp by Friday. Bruce Arena also announced that Landon Donovan would be returning to LA this season. There’s no return date set, but he will be back. Now comes the almighty question if he’ll be go back to the USMNT.

LA Galaxy had two players in the USMNT training camp, but only Omar Gonzalez made the roster versus Canada. There’s not much to comment on since it was a rather ahem.. boring… game. My mother taught me if I didn’t have anything nice to say, then I should keep my mouth shut. I plead the fifth on this game. Omar did play smart, and had a presence that was undeniable. Other than that, there’s not much to say. AJ DeLeGarza was not on the roster, but was in training camp.  (You can read more about the USMNT game over here —> )

Now for the David Beckham news. Even though Becks isn’t playing for LA anymore, I still feel the need to keep everyone up-to-date with the latest news on him… and lets face it, I miss him. A lot.  Anyways, there’s been no advancements as to where Becks will lend his talents. As for now he is off training with Arsenal’s first team.This sparked up the rumor mill, of course. But for all of you Arsenal fans it looks like Becks is just trying to keep in shape while he decides where to go. I’m still crossing my fingers that he decides leaving MLS was a mistake and he’ll come crawling back… haha?

Well, there you have it LA Galaxy fans! All the latest news on your favorite team. I’ll have updates on Landon Donovan’s return, and LA Galaxy updates as they come.
