What can you learn from a split-squad scrimmage? Maybe that chemistry continues to be an issue and that everything matters?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — What did we see on Thursday? We saw actual live soccer being played by the LA Galaxy. And even though it was just a scrimmage, there was plenty to cover. That includes some questionable coaching decisions and some serious injury concerns. We’re here to talk about it all!
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Eric Vieira discuss all the news surrounding the Galaxy, and what that means heading into the Orlando tournament.
The guys will start by breaking down the split-squad scrimmage and what, if anything, could be taken from the mixed lineups and differing formations. But did Guillermo Barros Schelotto miss an opportunity to create more chemistry by not playing a starting XI, by not starting Chicharito and Cristian Pavon together?
And could Schelotto already be on thin ice when it comes to his job security?
Josh and Eric will also discuss the injuries to Chicharito and Joe Corona, as well as the surgery being had by Jonathan dos Santos that will see him miss the tournament. And why will the Galaxy be extra short-handed against Portland? Ask Corona!
But the show moves from questionable moves to the absolute best moves, and the guys will discuss what having Juninho and Marcelo Sarvas joining the academy coaching staff could potentially do for player development.
No Fourth of July Fireworks? Like you can’t get Cozmo and a sparkler to keep the streak going?
Finally, the guys will highlight the ongoing “bubble” issues that MLS is facing and why it’s not a problem yet, but it could be a big enough problem soon to cancel the whole tournament.
It’s a packed show, with all the Galaxy news and info you ever wanted! So don’t miss it!
