The LA Galaxy win a road game and your hosts discuss everything from the result to the continuing road trip. Plus defensive shape and offensive issues.
CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy get a comprehensive win over the New York Red Bulls and break all kinds of streaks. Your hosts, CoG’s Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Writer Kevin Baxter, are here discuss all the issues and success that came out of the win.
First, Josh and Kevin will give you their thoughts on the win. What went right, what went wrong, and what is going to become a bigger issue down the road. How did Jelle Van Damme react to Curt Onalfo’s benching? And why should Van Damme still be wearing the armband?
The guys will also discuss the Galaxy’s offensive woes. Is Gyasi Zardes next to come under fire? Should the team be expecting more from him? And who’s to blame for the lack of strikers scoring? Was the midfield to blame for their slow start? Or, with that now fixed, are the strikers about to come alive?
Josh will also get into his charts and tell you, with an additional win, where the Galaxy compare to their historical past. They now have some company, and some of it is good company!
Finally, Josh and Kevin will answer your questions, take your calls from the CoG Hotline and give you the responses you deserve. The Galaxy have made a serious step forward, can they continue that when they travel to Minnesota United on Sunday? Or is this road trip still an uphill battle?
It’s an optimistic Galaxy podcast, and I’m not sure we’ve had one of those in quite some time.
