The LA Galaxy, in this case coached by Curt Onalfo and Pat Noonan, have released their lineup for tonight's match with the Carolina Railhawks. Bruce Arena said he didn't intend not traveling with the team an insult, but rather that since he's sending a split squad the reserves deserved a coach they're more familiar with.

Last year the whole squad traveled down to Carolina, with a mixed group starting. This year's squad is similar to those used in reserve matches. The one new addition is Robbie Rogers, who had some controversy about his availability but will be in the 18 tonight.
