Podcast: The Road Was Kind to the LA Galaxy, but Not Zardes

On today’s show, your hosts will cover Zardes’ continued struggle to find his form and what the LA Galaxy will do with US Open Cup and Houston lineups.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy have closed out their four-game road trip with a fairly pedestrian draw. But that also means they took ten of 12 points on the swing. That’s not bad, and it should set them up nicely for the international break before having to start a very busy stretch of games.

Your hosts, CoG’s Josh Guesman and LA Times Soccer Writer, Kevin Baxter, are here to give you all the latest takes and information on your favorite Southern California team.

The guys will take a look at what Jon Kempin did in his first Galaxy start and how the rest of the team was able to do after so much travel.

For Gyasi Zardes they’ll get into his continued struggles and what the Galaxy might have to start doing with him. Is the bench calling for him? Or should the team continue to play him in hopes of getting some real production out of him? If not Zardes then who?

The guys will also discuss Jelle Van Damme’s absence, Giovan dos Santos’ absence and why Zardes could be joining them. And is having a happy Dos Santos the most important thing to the Galaxy?

Finally, the guys answer your questions about the US Open Cup, the upcoming game against Houston and even discuss that the Galaxy have people working on things in foreign places. You can catch all the details right here.

Thanks for listening to Corner of the Galaxy: From the Box. We’re glad you could join us and we’re looking forward to being there for you this week and every week.
