Meanwhile, preseason training continued for Los Angeles, and Pat Noonan, a former MLS vet turned assostant manager, is learning the ropes of managing a team.

“I learned how a great coach handles adversity. Halfway through the year I think we were at the bottom of the table or close to it in the Western Conference, and he never once panicked,” Noonan said of Arena to LAGalaxy.com’s Adam Serrrano. “He kept his cool as did Curt and Dave and the players fed off that.

“At no point did he say I doubt that we can get in the playoffs or win a championship. He said it’s only a matter of time and we’re going to get in the playoffs and have a chance to win a championship, and he was right. I think that calmness was something I really admired and took note of.”
