Friday Night Lights
Greetings from Carson proper..
*DCU arrived this morning and held a light training session late this afternoon at Home Depot Center.
*Gallardo, Moreno and Vide are not here. McTavish is here, but will not travel to Honduras on Monday because of his red card against Saprissa. The two new defenders -- Janicki and Koroma -- did not make the trip. Kirk, Dyachenko, Thompson, Khumalo, Zaher and Doe are all here.
*Rookie defender Jeremy Barlow, waived by DCU recently, was picked up by the Galaxy and trained all week, but probably won't be on the 18-man roster tomorrow night.
*Galaxy officials are expecting a near or complete sellout.
*David Beckham and Landon Donovan will play together in a Galaxy home match for the first time since July 10.
*DCU goalkeeper Louis Crayton, who was rested against Saprissa, says his knee is fine and, barring a flare-up, is certain to start.
*You can read my feature story about Thabiso "Boyzzz" Khumalo in Saturday's print edition by clicking here. No, he's not related to Doctor Khumalo. But he did talk about the origin of his nickname, growing up in Soweto, attending Catholic school in Kentucky, playing at two colleges and journeying through the USL before getting a chance with DCU.
