Podcast: Stats Be Damned, The LA Galaxy are Winning!

On today’s show, your hosts question the winning trend of the LA Galaxy but also understand it’s happening right in front of our eyes.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy have won three games in a row and they’ve all come on the road!

Hosts Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Reporter, Kevin Baxter, are here to tell you what is going on. They’ll put the most recent winning streak, and the most recent win over the San Jose Earthquakes, into perspective and give you all the reasons it might not last. But also, all the reasons everyone has been witness to something that is happening right now.

Josh and Kevin will point out the players who once again did well and they’ll find some that didn’t do so well. Is it time that the Galaxy starts benching one of their most popular players? Should Gyasi Zardes be sent to the bench in order to give someone else the chance to get those minutes? Isn’t that part of the Galaxy’s offseason plan – to start younger players and give them a chance?

But what about the play of Giovani dos Santos, Romain Alessandrini, and Jelle Van Damme? Are we finally seeing what a dangerous offense looks like? And the hustle seems to be coming from both sides of the ball. The defense is also making itself known.

And while everything seems like it’s falling into place, the Galaxy picked up another injury. We’ll give you updates about Daniel Steres, Alessandrini, and Emmanuel¬†Boateng. What could their absences mean for the Galaxy and what do our hosts think is their prognosis?

Finally, the guys discuss a big chance for the Galaxy to take a player away from LAFC. It might be a long shot but they’ll discuss the likelihood of a battle of Javier Hernandez. Could the Carson team be the first one’s in line for the Mexican goal scorer?

We’ve got a great show with nearly 60-minutes of Galaxy talk. We’re glad you could join us and we look forward to bringing you the latest and greatest Galaxy news!
