Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Portland Timbers: Rating the Galaxy Players

So what else is new? It was back to the same nasty habit of conceding goals late for Bruce Arena’s Los Angeles Galaxy against Caleb Porter’s Portland Timbers. Nothing too special, just a 2-1 defeat at JELD-WEN Field in Portland, Ore. that came with poor shot selections all match and terrible defending in the closing stages.

Sarcasm aside this is Los Angeles Galaxy football at its finest. Here are the player ratings for the Los Angeles Galaxy against the Portland Timbers.

Carlo Cudicini 1

For being Cudi, and also earning a yellow card for dissent. Next!

A.J. DeLaGarza 4

Seven clearances, seven recoveries, three tackles won and a 96 percent pass success rate on 26 touches. Best defender on the pitch by far, but earns a deduction for a yellow card.

Omar Gonzalez 4

Nine clearances, five recoveries and a 74 percent pass success rate.

Todd Dunivant 3.5

Three tackles won, six recoveries, and a 62 percent pass success rate.

Sean Franklin 3.5

Seven recoveries, six unsuccessful crosses, and a 75 percent pass success rate.

Hector Jimenez 3

The hotstreak ends for Jimenez, who had three recoveries and an 81 percent pass success rate on 32 touches.

Robbie Rogers 3

Not a good game from Rogers: turned the ball one too many times and had six unsuccessful crosses. Did have five recoveries.

Juninho 3.5

Juninho earns a penalty for nine unsuccessful crosses and a 72 percent pass success rate. Did win three tackles and had five recoveries.

Marcelo Sarvas 4.5

Earns a deduction for a yellow card but is the man of the match for LA after putting the Galaxy ahead early.

Robbie Keane 4

More in the next piece.

Gyasi Zardes 1

Admit it, Gyasi, you’re not ready to play at this level yet. Work on your shooting and your marking in the reserves, kid.
