Daniel Aguirre found his rhythm just in time for Chicharito and Riqui Puig to find each other. Suddenly, the Galaxy are competing.
COG STUDIOS, Calif. — When you do a podcast twice a week, there’s a strong tendency to overreact to things that just happened. It’s called recency bias. And in this episode, we lean into it. After all, the last ten games are about finding that playoff form. And the LA Galaxy are a playoff team, right?
On today’s show, hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter want to talk about the gutsy, gritty game the Galaxy played against New England on Sunday night. And they want to talk about it as if there was no doubt the Galaxy would win.
Josh and Kevin will talk about the lineup that Greg Vanney put out and how they executed the game plan against a cross-happy Revolution side that created many chances but could only finish one.
The guys will talk about Chicharito’s great pass, Daniel Aguirre’s fantastic game and first MLS goal, and Riqui Puig’s perfect pass for the Chicharito finish. So many things went right for the Galaxy in New England it would be hard to transfer that over to an emotional game coming up against Toronto on Wednesday, right?
Kevin and Josh will talk about Vanney’s return to Toronto and whether or not he’ll be welcomed back to the place he helped create. And can the Galaxy’s former TFC players see some extra field time?
Plus, what do you do about Aguirre’s confidence? Does he start again if the injured Mark Delgado finds his way north of the border?
We’ve got a great show for you today. There are some terrible jokes, some horrible takes, and hopefully, just a bit of entertainment.
