2014 USL Pro: LA Galaxy II Preview, Depth Chart & Key Players

2013: N/A
Head Coach: Curt Onalfo

MLS AffiliationLos Angeles Galaxy Reserve Club
Key Newcomers: Daniel Steres D (25gp 7g 3a with Wilmington), Logan Emory D (Toronto MLS), Travis Bowen M (15gp 1g with Phoenix), Jack McBean F, Kyle Venter D, Kofi Opare D (LA Galaxy)
Analysis: With the New York Red Bulls reserves joining the league next season it seems the reserve option might be the future for the bigger MLS clubs. In Europe there are leagues that have reserve teams playing with independent clubs and traditionally they struggle as the team is younger, used for development, as well the best players are called in by the senior teams throughout the season. It’s difficult to predict how LAG II will do, although on a positive note the Galaxy probably have the best core of young players of any team in the MLS and have also brought in good USL Pro/fringe MLS players to bolster the club and try to make them more competitive.
2014 Prediction: 9th Place
