Podcast: Timbers Win, LA Galaxy Lose, and Turning it Around at Real Salt Lake

On today’s show, your hosts will walk you through the circus that was LA Galaxy vs Portland Timbers. They’ll also take your calls and get you ready for Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Carson, CA – The LA Galaxy are in a hole. They haven’t scored a goal from open play, and they’ve lost their first two games of the season for the first time since 2001. And after they were done in by some poor officiating and some even crazier decisions by the Disciplinary Committee, they now must right the ship and travel for their first road game of 2017. And we’re going to talk about all of that!

Your hosts Josh Guesman and Wendy Thomas are here to answer questions, make sense of the nonsense and keep you centered. This is a very zen show that has some great phone calls and some detailed discussion about your favorite team.

First Josh and Wendy get into the Galaxy’s 1-0 loss to the Portland Timbers. They’ll talk about lineup choices, counter attack goals, proper defending, and what we can try to learn from a mostly 10-man performance against a team that looked uninterested in doing any fighting — just flopping.

And there will, of course, be a detailed discussion on what happened to Jelle Van Damme, why he’s suspended, and how this makes very little sense when you compare Dave Romney’s situation last week, to this week’s debacle.

Your hosts will also point out some good play from some MLS debutants, and who has been slacking the first two games of the season. Is it too early to Panic? And what does Donal Rumsfeld have to do with soccer?

We’ll also get some great calls that point us in two different directions. Are the players on the field impressing you? But are you still mad at the front office? Are the Galaxy arrogant? We’ll discuss all of that and more.

Then your hosts will get you updated on team news. How many games will Sebastian Lletget and Jermaine Jones miss with the National Team?finally get  you ready for two winless Western Conference teams

Finally, Wendy and Josh will get you ready for two winless Western Conference teams, as the Galaxy face off against Real Salt Lake on Saturday in Sandy, Utah. Neither team has scored a goal from the run of play, and RSL has yet to score at all. Is this a good chance for the Galaxy to get their first win of 2017? And who is traveling, who is staying home, and who should start in the place of all those injuries?

It’s 60-minutes of wall-to-wall Galaxy talk. And we’re always glad you could join us.
