Galaxy lost against Kansas 2-0

Yeap, it happened again. But reading some articles after each of the Galaxy's defeats I realize why soccer is never going to be a popular sport in the States. Soccer is a sport about teams not about players. Pelé, Cruyff or Di Stefano didn't win any games playing alone.

It´s a sport where the coach can´t stop the game and change players or the way the players are playing. They have, as a team, to make the decisions. A lot of people will go to see Becks playing but you can´t expect one player to change the future of a whole organization. Maybe some journalists should go overseas and check how the game is played.

How about checking on the rest of the team, comparing the tactics of the coaches?
