From the Box: LA Galaxy – Lacking Creativity? With Dave Denholm & Taylor Twellman

Are the LA Galaxy lacking creativity? Can it be fixed? Guests Dave Denholm (Fox Soccer) and Taylor Twellman (ESPN) stop by to discuss what’s been missing.

It’s a spectacular new episode of Corner of the Galaxy: From the box. Your hosts Josh Guesman and LA Galaxy Insider Adam Serrano tackle the subject of creativity. It’s a word that’s tossed around by fans, coaches and pundits alike. But its a word we probably don’t define as well as we should. What does it mean to be a creative player and do the LA Galaxy lack such a man on the roster?

First, Fox Soccer Play-by-play announcer Dave Denholm (@TalkSoccer) calls in to give us his views on the LA Galaxy. Is it less about creating chances and more about the mentality of the players when they get on the road? Did Bruce Arena construct a team that was always playing for the draw in Vancouver? And who is the most creative player on the field for LA? Or perhaps it’s more about positioning and players being played out of where they are comfortable?

Regardless it’s an excellent discussion on what this 2016 may be lacking.

After the break, Josh is joined by ESPN Soccer Analyst Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman). Together they tackle some of the same issues that were brought up in the first segment but do it from the standpoint of Taylor’s years of MLS play. They discuss the LA Galaxy’s “anemic” offense and what factors into that. Is the jury still out on Giovani dos Santos? Or even Gyasi Zardes? And what about the injuries that have plagued the LA Galaxy so early in the season?

Taylor will break it down for you and tell what he sees when watching the LA Galaxy and why creativity isn’t about being spectacular.

It’s a great 30 minutes-plus of LA Galaxy talk. We don’t pull any punches. You deserve the truth. And this show gives it to you.
