Galaxy Re-Acquire Juninho, Form Voltron, Defend Universe?

2012 LA Galaxy Roster - Unstoppable?

The offseason loss of creative midfielder Juninho was supposed to be a stake in the heart of LA Galaxy’s hopes of an MLS Cup repeat.  The 23-year-old Brazilian’s loan was not extended by his parent club, Sao Paulo, as they wished to bring his maturing talents back home, going so far as to lock him in to a new 3-year contract.

Galaxy began seeking out and acquiring several hopeful replacements, most promising amongst them fellow Brazilian Marcelo Sarvas and former Union man Kyle Nakazawa.

Additionally, after a series of below-the-radar moves, Los Angeles announced over the weekend that they had… re-acquired Juninho on loan.  The best man to fill a set of empty shoes is the same man who once wore them, it turns out, and Galaxy have gone from finding an acceptable replacement to having a set of midfield options unrivaled in the league.

And when you add in the return of David Beckham and last week’s re-acquisition of former Galaxy striker and Golden Boot finalist Edson Buddle, you have to ask yourself: Is this the official start of the most potent MLS strike force… ever?

  1. I’m not an LA fan, but I am a fan of them potentially improving on a team that many thought was one of the best MLS sides ever. LA could possibly be setting themselves up to be the best MLS side ever –on paper. That said, everyone thought that New York was the best group of talent ever assembled in MLS. Of course RBNY did not have players the calibers of Marvelo Sarvas, Chad Barrett, or Kyle Nakazawa coming off the bench. LA could be scary good this year.
