The LA Galaxy get some great performances on Friday to get their first road points of the year. Plus, they’re historically good through five games.

SANTA ANA PUEBLO, N.M — The LA Galaxy got a 2-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Friday night to give them their first road points of the season. It also stretched the Galaxy’s winning streak to three games and gave them their best start since 2010.

On today’s show, your host Josh Guesman is currently in New Mexico at a work conference and will bring you his thoughts on the Galaxy’s win over the Whitecaps and what that means for the development of this team.

Josh will start by talking about the biggest play of the game, and it all happened within the first two minutes of the match. Can you ever remember a more obvious turning point in a game? And do the Galaxy win if Vancouver’s Ali Adnan buries his penalty chance?

Plus, who was your Man of the Match? Did Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goal and assist do enough in your mind to seal his win? Did David Bingham stand on his head enough the first half to secure the honor? Or was it Daniel Steres who continues to chase Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a spot?

But the biggest takeaway from the entire game is probably what Guillermo Barros Schelotto can do with his halftime adjustments. The Galaxy should have been losing the game at halftime. But Schelotto was able to change some position, and the Galaxy dominated Vancouver for the closing 45 minutes.

Finally, Josh will talk about Spectrum’s blackout policy, and why VAR needs to incorporate some advanced modeling. And the real inconsistency is in the initial calls officials are making.

We’ve got a paired down show, but hopefully, it gives you the Galaxy-talk that you need to get on with your week!

About The Author

Producer/Co-Host

I've been covering the LA Galaxy since 2009 and am the Co-Creator, Producer, and Host of all the shows at CoG and this one time I was even published in the LA Times! Proud member of the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR). I grew up in SoCal and enjoy covering all things Galaxy related. It's where my focus is and where I feel like I can have the most impact on how people get their independent soccer coverage. In fact, that's why I started this site. To give unbiased news, opinion, and entertainment about the Galaxy. No one pays anyone on the site to do this. This is TRULY independent coverage and that's the way I want to keep it.
