    I was extremely shocked to see how terrible LA actually is!I don't watch much of the MLS games and I definately wasn't impressed with the Thuggery that LA imposed upon San Jose, I was happy to see SJ come back and beat a lucky LA.I also wasn't impressed by Beckhams childish actions on and of the pitch, the ref really should have given him a red card for his actions after the game.
