On today’s show we’re quickly updating you on the loss to Houston, the departure of Penedo, the arrival of Ricketts and the giving you a short preview of the upcoming Colorado game.
Josh was out of town for most of the week so here’s your quick update on the LA Galaxy news and info you may’ve missed this week while he was away.
He’ll first talk briefly about the loss to the Houston Dynamo as LA Galaxy came out flat and uninterested against Houston in a game with all the heat and none of the excitement of a Texas showdown. Suspensions, National team call-ups and poor play doomed them from the first whistle.
Then it’s on to the departure of Jaime Penedo. If you’ve been listening long enough, this shouldn’t surprise you. We’ve known about contract issues and Jaime being unhappy since the beginning of the season. This was just the final step in an action we’ve seen coming for awhile.
So who do you get to replace Jaime Penedo? Well if this is 2009, you may’ve guessed Donovan Ricketts. Will he start? Or will Brian Rowe get the nod?
Finally Josh will get you ready for the Saturday night matchup with the Colorado Rapids. The LA Galaxy haven’t won on the road since August of 2014. So it’s basically been a year. Will this be the one that finally gets them over the hump?
