Boos fell from all four corners of the Dignity Health Sports Complex at the end of the game in which the LA Galaxy lost to Charlotte FC for Round 15 of MLS 2023 on Saturday.
That final score, along with the departure of Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, makes it feel like the Galaxy have really hit rock bottom. And the most passionate fans made themselves felt.
The Angel City Brigade – one of the club’s supporters groups – sang “We want better” (“We want things to get better”) as player and manager Greg Vanni came up for a discussion with a group of fans.
Vaini said after the match, ‘To be honest, it was a friendly conversation. “They expect more. They want more from the group. … No need to go into specific details. Yes, we need to improve on today’s performance (for Saturday) and secure a result. They are the same It wasn’t something hot or anything like that. Again, we’re on the same team. We’re all trying to achieve all those things.”
This weekend was the third straight defeat in which the LA Galaxy failed to score from play, and dashed signs of optimism that had emerged from the United States following a 2-0 win over LAFC on Tuesday night in the Open Cup. The Galaxy are at the bottom of the league with 9 points from 14 games.
Midfielder Mark Delgado said, “Obviously the result hasn’t been in our favor so we’ll keep listening (to the fans) and I’m not here to say they’re wrong. They’re right.” “Every time we go out on the court, we have to be ready. Whatever it is. We have to be ready. That’s our job. If you’re not fully focused, why are you doing it?”
Delgado said the LA Galaxy had to work to stick to Vinny’s game plan in 90 minutes of play. We are told to play simple, but the action of the game on the pitch sometimes indicates otherwise.”
Delgado said, “It’s an easy game. You have to play an easy game.” “There will be moments for creativity and that will happen, but we have to be patient, and there are times we are not. So they are right. The fans are right. We have to do better.”
The next chance to improve will come on Wednesday (9:30 p.m. | MLS Season Pass), when the Galaxy travel to America First Field to face Real Salt Lake. This season Los Angeles has 0 wins, 5 losses and 2 draws. ,
