Galaxy could disappear into the injury black hole....

In the latest "power rankings" over at MLSsoccer.com the Galaxy fall to 8th and rightly so. They haven't done much lately. And it is looking like it is going to be a rough September for them.

They note: "With Gyasi Zardes out for the season, Jelle Van Damme out 2-3 weeks, Steven Gerrard nursing a knock, Nigel de Jong flirting with Turkey (it's official, he has been transferred) and zero wins in their last five, the Galaxy don't look like a top seed in the West."

Will be interesting to see who Coach Arena sends out there for Saturday's match at home against the Columbus Crew.

Good to see Rowe back in goal.

Back four likely to be: Steres, Leonardo, Cole, Rogers
D-midfield: Larentowicz and Husidic
A-mid/forwards: Dos Santos, Magee, Boateng, Lletget

Larentowicz and Magee are a bit older and will likely be subbed out at some point in the second half. Would figure Gordon would be plugged in. Wonder which of the youngster will get minutes as the second and…

Liverpool 1-1-1 so far

Great win against Arsenal.

Laid an egg against Burnley.

Played a high intensity game against Tottenham resulting in a draw.

Which Liverpool team will show up this weekend?

In 2015-2016:
Leicester City road the magic carpet to the title. Don't see them repeating. Maybe 8th?

Arsenal finished 2nd last year. What about this year? Perhaps 4th?

Tottenham was 3rd last year and they have the ability to be 3rd again this year.

Man City came in 4th last year and this year they look to move up under Pep to 2nd place?

Man U got the 5th spot last year and with Jose and Zlatan, they may win the whole thing this year!

Liverpool was hot and cold all season and came in 8th. If the first 3 games is an indication of similar hot/cold performances, they could claw their way to 7th. On the other hand, if they play like they did against Arsenal, they could get as high as 4th. Time will tell if they can show some consistency.

Chelsea, after a dreadful start climbed up to 10th. Under new leadership, look f…

Ooofffff - Falkenberg takes it on the chin 0-5 to Jonkoping

It is not looking good for the team by the sea. Check out the video highlight package from CMORE.

With this loss, FFF falls to 16th in the table. I had projected which games they probably needed to win in order to have a shot at staying in the top league. Suffice to say, today was one of those games. Instead, they were wiped out.
