With a big win over the Portland Timbers, are the Galaxy back on track for the playoffs? And why will Houston be so tricky?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — The LA Galaxy break their nine-game winless streak with a big-time victory over the visiting Portland Timbers. But is all right with the Galaxy now that they’ve figured out what three points feel like again? And why could this be a tricky week for the club and Greg Vanney!
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter (is Kevin in New York City? Or is he somewhere else using a green screen? We’ll never really know the answer!) discuss the Galaxy’s win over Portland and why it’s not all positives for the club.
Plus, the guys want to discuss Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez’s performance since returning from injury. Is he quietly having one of the best performances in MLS? And is that good enough for what the Galaxy need him to be doing on the field?
And with the defensive issues the Galaxy have had over this season, did you think that this was their best defensive performance? What was different from the entire team on the defensive side of things?
Finally, Josh and Kevin will spend a lot of time looking at the Western Conference standings and why the next two games could make or break the Galaxy’s playoff chances.
With just three spots for five teams, who is most likely to make a late push for a spot? And why is that team the Vancouver Whitecaps?
And if you’re the Houston Dynamo, are you playing for pride on Wednesday night? Or do you fold up the tent and go home? After all, the Dynamo had their biggest win of the season on Saturday and still got eliminated from the playoffs!
