Yallop Proving He’s a First Class Coach

Three weeks ago many people including here on this site speculated aloud as to Frank Yallop’s coaching future and whether or not he’d be able to motivate his last place Los Angeles Galaxy team for the remained of the MLS season.

Well guess what? Yallop and the Galaxy are on a roll, having won four games in a row and they are doing it Yallop’s way. Let’s look at the contributions of certain players who have found form at the right time.

  • Joe Cannon

Many including myself questioned the decision to bring in Cannon. The last month he has been unbeatable except by the best strikers and right now is best goalkeeper in MLS.

  • Kevin Harmse

The Canadian international is giving gritty performances and serving an important function as a ball winner.

  • Chris Klein

He’s found the Fountain of Youth and is making some spectacular runs down the flank.

  • Cobi Jones

Simply put, Jones is still at 37 the Galaxy’s most important player. He should reconsider his retirement.

  • Gavin Glinton

The former Galaxy player who spent a long period in the USL looked woeful much of the year and I wondered aloud why he was even in MLS. Now, Glinton is a specialist coming off the bench late in matches providing the Galaxy with great runs and even better finishing.

Yallop now is comfortable with the personnel assembled by Alexi Lalas and is getting results. It would be a mistake to re-introduce David Beckham to this team with it playing so well and would be an even bigger mistake to sit either Klein or Jones for Beckham. We’ll learn in the near future whether the football people or marketing people are in fact running the Galaxy.
