Podcast: Who Can the LA Galaxy Beat? The Answer Isn’t Promising!

On today’s show, your hosts dive deep into your questions after the scoreless draw to the Philadelphia Union. Did Curt Onalfo do enough to cool his seat?

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy didn’t lose to the Philadelphia Union. So in a lot of ways, that’s a step in the right direction. But for the Galaxy, a team with five MLS Cups, it can’t be anywhere near good enough.

On tonight’s show, your hosts, CoG’s Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Writer Kevin Baxter, take a look back and that optically oppressing game and tell you what they learned.  Did the formation change work? And did João Pedro show some significant improvement? Was the formation too defensive? Why didn’t the offense get going? And where are Giovani dos Santos and Jermaine Jones supposed to be playing?

Plus, your hosts will discuss whether or not the Galaxy have already abandoned their “LA Galaxy II is our Future” plan when they went out and signed Jack McInerney. It certainly sent a shot across the bow for some of the younger players.

But the big questions will be around Curt Onalfo and whether or not he has survived the storm. Did he do enough against the Union to secure his job for the foreseeable future? Did his formation change show enough initiative to see him around for several more weeks? Did the players’ attitudes improve in this game? Has he still lost the team? We’ll answer a bunch of these question and a bunch more of your excellent and insightful tweets and emails in a quick 60-minutes of Galaxy talk tonight.

Plus, we’re answering your CoG Hotline calls as well. And some of you need to cheer up a bit.

Finally, the guys will discuss the upcoming four-game road trip that will start as soon as they’re done with their three-game homestand against the Chicago Fire. Will Juninho get a warm welcome back in SoCal?

We hope you enjoy the show. Tell your friends! Tell your enemies! Tell your parents! And thanks for talk Galaxy soccer with us!
