LA Galaxy v Chelsea, July 21, 2007

sshot 1 LA Galaxy v Chelsea, July 21, 2007ESPNsoccernet is reporting that David Beckham will make his LA Galaxy debut on July 21st against Chelsea, presumably at The Home Depot in southern California.

In March of 2006, Chelsea announced an agreement with Galaxy owners AEG (Anshutz Entertainment Group) where the two teams (and other AEG clubs Houston, Chicago and DC) would partner.

Chelsea’s decision to play against the Galaxy is a wise one. The TV audience for the match will be huge in the States, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the broadcast was beamed around the world, which will give Chelsea plenty of publicity.

I’m sure that John Terry and Ashley Cole will be looking forward to stopping Beckham in his tracks. It should be an interesting battle for sure.

Chelsea fans, for more coverage regarding your team, listen to a podcast recorded from Stamford Bridge, or view the exclusive photographs from last summer’s Chelsea match in Chicago.

    Now this should be an interesting tie…I’m not the biggest fan of Chelsea just because they’ve been playing a more defensive brand of football (compared to Man. United & Arsenal) but they shouldn’t be in form in July so it will be a nice test for brand Beckham & the Galaxy.

    I predict a 2-0 loss for the Galaxy but a fun game to watch.
