LA Galaxy Show Promise in Home Opener

The Los Angeles Galaxy dominate all aspects of play tonight against the newly expanded San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 in the home opener for LA. David Beckham and Landon Donovan provided both goals and assists to eachother, Becks in the 6th and Donovan in the 39th.
Beckham looked more match-fit than ever, and Donovan looked like his legs were back after last week international friendly against Poland.
Although sometimes the Galaxy played sloppy, the Earthquakes stood no chance and I'm starting to wonder if head coach Frank Yallop (who coach the Galaxy last year) was the problem for them not making the playoffs.
New Galaxy head coach Rudd Gullit's interesting 4-4-3 triangle formation finally work, because it did not in the terrible 4-0 loss @ Colorado last week.
Alan Gorn and Chris Klein also played amazing games, and Steven Cronin posted his first MLS clean sheet (a sign of things to come), but I'll leave with you a little piece of history, Becks first MLS goal!
