Galactic Clippings, August 22nd

No truth to the rumor that Chef Ramsay made the delicious Irish meal the press enjoyed on Friday.

Apologies for the tardiness, but grab your coffee and your favorite pastry, and let's see what the papers have been saying about Saturday's match: 

 

Keane makes dramatic entrance in his Galaxy debut - The Daily Breeze
"Robbie Keanes first touch drew some oohs and aahs from the crowd, not to mention a crowd of three defenders. Not too many minutes later, Keane showed the Galaxy and their fans what all the fuss was about, scoring a goal that changed everything." A local look at the match from the South Bay's paper. 

 

Hollywood start for Keane in LA - The Irish Times - Sun, Aug 21, 2011
"Just over 48 hours after arriving on the west coast of America and with just one training session under his belt with his new team-mates, Robbie Keane marked his MLS debut with a goal for his new side in their victory over San Jose at the Home Depot Centre on Saturday night." Of course, the Robbie Keane buzz made it back to his home country of Ireland. 

 

BBC Sport - Robbie Keane scores on debut as LA Galaxy beat San Jose
"Republic of Ireland captain Robbie Keane scores on his Major League Soccer debut as LA Galaxy beat San Jose 2-0." And how often do you recon the BBC writes an MLS story? Pretty cool. 

 

L.A. Galaxy feels the pressure moving forward - latimes.com
"There was one point that the Galaxy brain trust took care to be perfectly clear about: They know the pressure is on, and they're ready for it." And for another local perspective, but on the rest of the season. 

Expectations are high. Do you think this team can rise to the occasion? Chat about it in the thread, and good morning to you : )
