CoG: Were Questions Answered in LA Galaxy Win over Houston

On today’s show, Kevin Baxter from the LA Times stops by to talk about the LA Galaxy and their 1-0 win over the Houston Dynamo.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy were 1-0 winners over the Houston Dynamo on Sunday afternoon. The win locks up 3rd places in the Western Conference and guarantees them a home game for the 1st round of the playoffs. You can read our game recap over on the website.

Your host Josh Guesman is joined by LA Times Reporter, Kevin Baxter for 30 mins of LA Galaxy talk. Together, the guys will talk about the lineup that got the victory and really dive into quotes from the team. Did this win mean more than just three points for the LA Galaxy? Is Landon Donovan fulfilling more of a role in the locker room than on the field? What does the LA Galaxy’s success without Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane say? Or do the absent players get a bigger role in the upcoming playoff game?

Josh will tell you why he thinks Sunday’s game, although it was tough to watch, was important to the mental health fo the LA Galaxy and they’ll both highlight some standout players in this game. Is Giovani dos Santos the man in charge when Landon Donovan is on the field? And what did AJ DeLaGarza’s performance say about the defense? Who should really be playing in midfield and does that even matter?

It’s an insightful 30 minutes with two guys who have spent all season doing their best to enlighten you about the LA Galaxy. And this podcast is about as much information as we could possibly cram into this short of time.

Thanks for listening and we’ll see you again on Thursday when we preview the LA Galaxy’s final home game of the regular season.
