MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Troubled Chivas USA has named Arturo Galvez as its new president and chief business officer, replacing Jose David less than 11 months after he was hired.

Chivas USA is last in the Western Conference with 26 points and last in MLS in attendance with an average of 8,230 a game.

As the season has progressed, Chivas USA's play has improved, but its attendance woes continue. Its crowd of 5,123 for its game against Portland last weekend was the lowest crowd of the 2013 season.

Galvez arrives at Chivas USA after 16 years with Chivas de Guadalajara and its owner, Jorge Vergara.

He has been involved in numerous projects at Chivas de Guadalajara and worked on Vergara's buyout of Chivas USA in 2012.

    Vergara is the one that needs to be replaced, this club under Preki did very well and since that time they have been in a downward spiral as they race to the bottom with their silly 'USA' name attached (as opposed to being affiliated with Los Angeles, the community where they are directly located).

    How is the Los Angeles attachment any different that the baseball franchise that plays in Anaheim (home of Disneyland) about 30-40 miles southeast of the heart of Los Angeles and the team is known as the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim(???)" And what about the LA Galaxy that plays in a stadium locatedc on the campus of Cal State University Domignuez Hills that is located in the City of Carson? Any different that calling the NY Bulls that plays in New Jersey? Really now, the gist of Mr. Huff's argument should first be focused on why the team is not doing as well as it ought to, and BTW, when Preki was at the helm, well, I most certainly don't agree, yet who would buy the team, Beckham and then he'd move the team to the new proposed (hopefully) soccer field close to the Los Angeles Coliseum... and then, well amigo, the beat goes on, and on, and on, and as long as Mr/Mrs Vergara are calling the shots, well, take a closer look on how Chivas of Guadalajara are or aren't doing!!!

    I don't think Chivas is "long" for their current location anyway. I could see "Becks" buying the team and giving them a new address, far from Southern California.
