Late second-half goals can’t dress up the LA Galaxy loss to Sporting KC. And is Julian Araujo on his way out of LA?
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — If we didn’t have to, we probably wouldn’t have watched the LA Galaxy lose to one of the worst teams in Major League Soccer this year. In fact, Sporting KC could do nothing wrong, and the Galaxy didn’t deserve to do anything right.
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss the 4-2 loss to SKC and much more. But is Greg Vanney getting the tactics wrong? Or is he putting his faith in players that don’t want to play the way he asks? Is Douglas Costa a problem child for the Galaxy? And why are Julian Araujo and Raheem Edwards being rested?
Plus, could Araujo be on his way to Porto in only a few days? Would you take $5-million from a European side if it meant that Araujo would have to leave immediately? Or would you hold onto the Mexican International in hopes of a break out at the World Cup?
And Riqui Puig is in Los Angeles. Does that mean he has his Visa and is ready to play? Or will he have to sit out Vancouver to be prepared for Seattle?
Finally, Josh and Kevin discuss the Galaxy’s play to take over the lease at Championship Soccer Stadium at the Great Park in Irvine. Why are the Galaxy moving south with eyes on Orange County? And why did they back off when pressured?
