Reviewing Cali Clasico between San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy

Reviewing Cali Clasico between San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy

alrighty so another edition of the cali classico is in the books and i gotta say this was a very weird game and what’s weird about this game isn’t because of the fact that the quakes actually play relatively well on the road but it was weird because there were some goals that i’m just thinking how in the world did that actually went into the back of the net but overall in the end the quakes were able to go on the road and win 2-1 against the galaxy and you know i feel like when you look at how this game plays out quakes definitely deserve all three points and it was huge the fact that they got all three points in this game because not only the fact that now they are above the red line with this three points but they finally got a win after just it seems like some endless amount of draws that they they’ve been getting in the last couple of games now in the first half uh bond did deny lopez after the shot took a week deflection oh it was kind of interesting to see both john champion and taylor twelvemen both referred trophies as javier lopez i mean i know trophy’s real name is javier edwardo lopez but so far from most of the announcers that of course have uh have mentioned javier lopez they usually referred him as trophies which is his nickname but yeah throughout the game it was kind of like like they were just mentioning his real name and i was definitely not used to that knowing the the fact that a lot of broadcasters usually refer him as trophies and it didn’t take a thing until maybe the 70th minute when taylor 12 or actually not taylor twelve men but john champion kind of mentioned his nickname a little bit but as i said it was kind of weird the fact that he they they refer him as javier lopez instead of the more popular trophies name uh then a couple minutes after that there was actually a big speculation that was thrown from john champion said that chicharito could be actually be back in the next game in el trafico and if that’s the case boy oh boy that would be a huge boost for the galaxy and it would really the maybe bring even more hype in terms of the old trafficking because now we could have a potential situation where chicharito and carlos vela is going to be on the same pitch and both of them are going to be facing against each other now in the eighth minute yoverlich did puts it high from short range but i thought the quakes were by far the better side early in fact that was really kind of almost like a half-hearted effort from yovic that put it into rosette and as i said the quakes were by far the better side early in this game abacus is then hit to evolve leave that miss high before he was very unfortunate to score the opening goal for the quakes as he struck the post on the curler the shots were six to one in favor of the quakes through 20 minutes which again just shows you how the quakes were dominating in this game ahead by far more of the opportunity but then in the 22nd minute tempers flare happened after broke clothesline remedy and both of them kind of started have some choice words with each other and i thought her bro was lucky to not get a red card in this instant because any time when you decided to clothe-line some one especially put your hand on the neck or the face of opponent yeah you are basically asking for the referee to potentially show a red card and i will say that remedy throughout this game he also made some very dangerous challenge that that could have worked for of a red car him himself but yeah that was just one of those ones where yeah you know that could have been a red car if it wasn’t if it wasn’t for for a big game like the cali lee classico because again you know anytime when you when you put your hands in the opponent’s neck or you decide to clotheline someone that is a very reckless playing c could easily end in a straight red card but nevertheless uh after that incident you know the quakes continue to be on top and also by the way you know it’s unsurprising to see tempers flare happen there although that was actually the only time when the tempers rip they kind of got flare throughout this game i was hoping maybe there was going to be more some tempers flare moment knowing the fact that this is a cali classical but for the rest of the game it was kind of relatively clean but as i said the quakes continue to be on top but this is also when i started to get a little bit concerned the fact that yes they’re on top right now they’re creating a lot of chances but they’re not able to find find the crucial opener and how many time i’ve talked about this season when you are dominating the game and especially when you’re dominating the game and you’re playing against a a a better team you don’t put away your chances you’re going to get punished and i thought that was probably going to be the case for the quakes but before that uh salinas did hit zy in the back post in the 32nd minute and then in the 36th minute mark sinkowski had to deny alvarez and then in the 38th minute it looked like the galaxy were potentially going to to have a chance to get the opening goal as the referee was actually pointing to the spot but then he quickly decided that that it is actually going to be an offside for the galaxy because the flag actually weight wave up up before uh the the initial foul that jutsubmate basically commit on cabral and there was no doubt that that vowel that jutsu didn’t commit uncle bro in the box was clearly a penalty but because of the fact that that happened after when the flag was already up yeah i thought the quakes were very fortunate to not concede a penalty there but there was no doubt that that was a warning sign that the galaxy was started to come back into this game and they were looking to take the lead before half time to certainly my my biggest concern with the quakes of unable to take advantage when they were the better team and now all of a sudden the galaxy are back in the game and they look like they might get get a goal right on the stroke of halftime uh alvarez had a chance to do so but he puts it high on the free kick but it was actually the quakes had the best opportunity to end the half to take the lead but jonathan bond absolutely robbing ebola c not once but twice on the same sequence i mean first they both see basically basically they try to hit it but bond with an incredible save but what a great great recognition there from bond to quickly gets up on his feet uh after the ball went right back to ebola c and somehow in some way bond was able to deny him there and you know jonathan bought another solid performance in this game and there was also some point where i’m like oh great is this is this happen again happening again like the last cali classical where remember or not the last cali classical but the last calorie classical that was at at dignity health sports park where jonathan bought was really the reason why the gap galaxy was able to win one nothing in the game and it feels like it was gonna happen again where bond was gonna steal the show and he was gonna try to steal a point or all three three points for the galaxy in this game but we had to half ton scoreless between both of these team and in the second half it’s you know as i mentioned i i feel like this was just kept going to be one of those those games where bond is just going to not allow any anything whatsoever and that point kind of proved in the 47 minute when it bobby hits the post and then on the fall that one actually bounced right to tanner beeson and you know again bond just just some some good reaction there to quickly gets up on his feet and basically denied beason from point blank range and yeah i mean i i just thought the quakes were which is getting blue ball at at that point and then on the other end in the 49th minute cabro actually went through a goal but yeah he did a typical crawl moment which is he wasn’t able to be be keep his composure to put it into the back net in fact he basically puts a weak shot wide and that’s kind of been the criticism of kevin cabral where he could really be a world-class kind a player with the pace that he he has him with the way that he he can get into the final third but the only reason why he’s not considered a world-class kind of player is because he doesn’t have the finished shin ability and also the composure when at the clinical moment where when you get yourself into a good position you have the composure to slop that’s it and then you know you still have plenty of time to do so he’s still a relatively young player but you know once if that that is going to be something that adds into the game he could be a very very dangerous player but i can also understand why galaxy fans are are incredibly frustrated with him because you know with all the talent that that he he has you know it’s just so frustrating the fact that he’s been all wasted because of the fact that he’s not not be a guy that that can can keep his cool to potentially slots at home into the back of net and that big miss that cabral has would come back to hold the galaxy four minutes later because in the 53rd minute jeremy and bobassin score his first goal for the san jose earthquake since he scored from advocates and trophies i mean that was some beautiful soccer and beautiful full build up from the quakes probably one of the best build up i’ve seen the quakes so for for this season i mean it’s that one is kind of right up there to the the build-up that they they had earlier this season when remember how k-cal put a kevin de point the s kind of passed to espinosa who finish it off i mean that was right up there in terms of this build up just beautiful full soccer that the quakes were were able to play there and well they deserved so that one ends up in a goal and certainly for jeremy obviously will he deserve to finally get a go after he basically was was robbed twice in this game to potentially get the opening goal for the quakes but then in the 60 second minute uh grand sear took a shot that took a wicked deflection that goes wide before in the 65th minute the galaxy equalized and it’s vasquez the one that equalized for the galaxy and this was also one of the two goals i’m just thinking how in the world that this one went in i mean originally i will say that it was kind of a huge mistake from jt marcinkowski because he kind of fumbled that that ball as he was looking to try to catch it and it bounced in to his own net but then when i look on the replay a couple of times i thought this was just more than than just jt making a spillage that led to a gold and kind of committed goalkeeping howler but more to the fact that the the defending of that corner was absolutely atrocious from the quakes like there was literally two players in the front post and i have no idea how that ball was driven toward that that near post and somehow that ball went by both of those of those quick defender and maybe that’s kind of what caught off jt marks and kowski a little bit he was expecting one of his his defender to just easily clear that one away from the near pulse and he kind of took a little bit of surprise that it kind of bounced all the way from him but nevertheless you know the galaxy was able to equalize and that was just kind of really frustrating because all the good work that the quakes have put into the game and they’ve been outdone because of that bad mistake that they had but that being said in the 70th minute they would retake the lead and again this was another goal where i’m just thinking how in the world did this went in because you know trophies lopez i fall originally he kind of make the the the wrong wrong choice truck trying to kind of like he he was he was had had a good chance to basically shoot but instead he can kind of take it wide which kind of cut down his angle but as he was dribbling toward goal you know he would i think he was maybe trying to cross this one in and heming-lining unfortunately the unlucky player that just deflected into his own net for an own goal and just like that the quakes were up 2-1 in this game and i guess maybe that’s just the signs of the soccer gods kind of kind of restoring the balance and it was just kind of a classic moment of where the galaxy basically were thankful for of a goal that they had five minutes ago from the soccer guards but now the soccer guards decide to take him from the moment and they want some pay means for that and now all of a sudden the galaxy are finding themselves back back down now in this this game but as the game kind of wind down it in this one the quakes you know they really kind of started to shut up shop and soak in the pressure that the galaxy was putting which i wasn’t a big fan of that i was actually really kind of confused why i made it decided just kind of shut up shop yes i know there’s still 15 minutes left in this game and you know you’re up one goal on the road you want to try to shut up shop so you can preserve the 2-1 lead but there was just times where i think they they sit way too too deep almost like they would just get a pin in their own own have and the galaxy which is putting wave after wave of pressure i mean they had a lot of corners in in that one and i was just thinking one of these corner is going to be into the back of that because knowing the fact that the quakes have never been a team that that’s good in terms of defending corner and the and not to mention the only goal that they can see in this game was from a corner i thought this the quakes were going to be punished late in this game but nevertheless you know you know they weren’t able despite conceding so many corner of the galaxy really didn’t do a good job in terms of the delivery and in fact the last real good chance in this game was kcal puts it high on diwali in the fourth minute of starfish time and in the end the quakes were able to walk out of carson with all three points in this game as they were able to win 2-1 against the galaxy shots of this one 18 shots coming the 17 that the quakes had six shots on gold for the fourth that the galaxy had seven shots off turkey for the sixth that the quake said seven shots i was blocked for the five to the quake set 54 possession compared to 46 possession that the quakes had in this game and despite the fact that galaxy actually had a little bit better advantage in terms of all the shots and also the shots off target the quakes do have the advantage in terms of shots on goal and really most of the chances that the galaxy had had was really in the last 15 minute when the quakes were just kind of just sitting deep and trying to hold on to this this 2-1 lead which eventually they were able to do so and you know like i said this was a huge victory for this team because as i mentioned i was getting frustrated with the way that they keep drawings too many games during this 10 game on being run that they had but now that they finally get all three points they can can now and now being above the red line they can now start to maybe put some pressure on some of the teams around them to also get get all all three points to try to get above the red line and also most importantly the fact that you know you know you know with them finally getting a win hopefully the this does spark some confident i mean i know this team has has been very confident ever since this unbeaten run has gone on but hopefully now these wins that they of course are able to get in this one and also a game just a couple of weeks ago against lafc will start spock sparks more wins during this unbeaten run because like i said it’s one thing to go on a long unbeaten being run but it’s another if you get wins during this long unbeaten run and i think even with this win the quakes still have to have drawn way too too many game doing this unbeaten run but they’re starting to try try to change that by getting wins and getting all all three free points they push themselves above the red line but there you have it that is pretty much it for the review of this game let me know in the comments below what do you think of this game and also for the galaxy you know yeah this is kind of frustrating that they they’ve now dropped back-to-back home games and in in some way they are really desperate to to hope that they have chicharito back in the starting level and as i mentioned earlier it seems like there is a speculation that he could be back for that l trafficking but yeah that is a big game for the galaxy in that one and it will be one that that they would would really hope to to maybe send a message to the rest of the league that they can of course be be the be a team that can sustain in terms of the top top fully spot in the western conference because like i said you know with this loft they just opened the door for colorado to potentially overtake them in that third third spot and in a position where the galaxy have been holding on ever since the beginning of the season but as a as i mentioned earlier hope you guys enjoy this video if you do make sure you guys
