CoG: LA Galaxy, Semantics, and the Montreal Impact

On today’s show we’re joined by the Host of the Black and Blue Podcast, Giovanni Sardo as we preview the LA Galaxy’s weekend match with the Montreal Impact.

It’s another packed episode of Corner of the Galaxy as your hosts, Josh Guesman and Wendy Thomas break down the LA Galaxy’s 1-1 draw with the San Jose Earthquakes and look ahead to the weekend matchup with Montreal.

First Josh and Wendy will point out some of the bigger issues that should concern LA about the way they played against San Jose. Did Bruce Arena make a mistake in starting Mike Magee over Sebastian Lletget and did the formation and the personnel chosen put the Galaxy in a hole they never really recovered from? Did this feel more like a loss than a draw? And we’ll tell you exactly what Steven Gerrard said that should give you a good mindset into what’s going on in the LA Galaxy locker room.

Then Josh will be joined by Giovanni Sardo (@GioSardoMTL), host of the Black and Blue podcast to talk about how Montreal views this game (Josh also went on his podcast and you can hear it HERE). It’s an insightful conversation that may leave you feeling like Montreal is ripe for the taking, but it’s going to be an uphill road to climb.

Then Josh and Wendy tackle Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumors (it looks like an unhappy ending for LA) and the MLS All-Star Voting. Josh will give you his surefire way to get the best MLS team on the field and Wendy will tell you why Don Garber is throwing a party that no one wants to go to.

Finally we’ll refocus on Montreal as we get you ready for the 5PM Kickoff on Saturday night. And why you should be going to the LA Galaxy II game.

It’s a full show packed to the top with LA Galaxy stats, and fun. Thanks for joining us!
