Los Angeles Galaxy Ins and Outs, Feb. 6, 2011

Consistency expected from Galaxy defense 

While Los Angeles Galaxy manager Bruce Arena brought in nine new players to the team, a defensive unit that gave up only 26 goals in the regular season was mostly left intact. 

It can be said that bigger things are expected from the backline, which now has Ryan Thomas and Frankie Hejduk in the lineup. 

“It’s [Arena's] job to get things right,” goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts said. “It’s our job to do them right on the field.” 

Ricketts, the 2010 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, finished his initial campaign with an 18-7-4 record, 12 shutouts and a 0.90 goals average. 

“You never know with that stuff,” said defender Todd Dunivant. “You come out every day and do your job, and we did that last year. We came in every day and put in our work and throughout the year, we were the best team in the league."
