Podcast: Looking Back at the LA Galaxy’s First Preseason Game & Number Controversy

On today’s show, your hosts go back over the LA Galaxy’s draw with Tijuana, talk a bunch of team news, and point out what you should be looking for when they face San Jose this weekend.

CoG Studios, CA РThe LA Galaxy finally played a game that almost meant something. And your hosts, Josh Guesman and Wendy Thomas want to apply meaning to the meaningless and make sense of the senseless. Really that all this show is about.

First, they’ll focus on the Galaxy’s 1-1 draw with Club Tijuana. What can we learn from 22 players playing 45-minutes each? And can any good be taken from two blown chances and some erratic passing? What did Curt Onalfo or Jelle Van Damme think about the game? Josh and Wendy will do their best to point you in the right direction in terms of players that did well and those that struggled. And it’s important to point out that those that struggled still have plenty of time to redeem themselves.

Next, they focus on what to look for from Saturday’s game against San Jose. The game is in Vegas and it’s still relatively early in the preseason. So does that mean you should expect more from this game than the last? How long with the “starters” play? And how what will be some good things to come out of this game?

Finally, your hosts end the night by going over a mass of Galaxy News. Including, where would you take your LA Galaxy Valentine, what’s up with those Blue Kits, and who are LA Galaxy II’s new coaches. Plus they’re going to dip their toes into the retired number controversy. Was it retired? Who cares? Burn everything?

It’s a quick 60-minutes focused on your LA Galaxy. And with the season just around the corner, you can almost feel the Opening Day tension start to fill the studio. Don’t know if LA supporters have ever had a team that was more of a question mark. This could be a lot of fun.
