On Today’s show your hosts discuss just how bad August was for the LA Galaxy and whether or not this team can turn it around for September.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy aren’t even all the way through August yet, but they’re wishing it never happened. With an 0-2-4 record the team finishes winless in the month and sees key players go down injured. Not to mention that the style of play and the results were hard to watch for any fan.
On today’s show your hosts Josh Guesman and LA Galaxy Insider, Adam Serrano are joined by Sports Writer for the OC Register and the Southern California News Group, Damian Calhoun. Damian will give his impressions of the August he witnessed as they all try an parse out what the major issue was and what can be done to fix it.
They’ll talk about key players not living up to the their billing. What have Giovani dos Santos, Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane done for the team this year? And why haven’t the key talents on this team stepped up? The LA Galaxy have Ashley Cole, Nigel De Jong (for now), Mike Magee and more veteran players that haven’t stepped up to stop the bleeding.
With only 8 Games left the guys will discuss if there is any way of salvaging momentum going into the playoffs. Especially considering that it looks like three key players of the Galaxy are now out for some period of time (Jelle Van Damme, Steven Gerrard, Gyasi Zardes).
It’s been a horrible month and everyone is just looking for some perspective. Hopefully this show will key you into the major issues the LA Galaxy have and the mountain they are going to have to scale in order to arrive in the playoffs at all.
