Podcast: Foosball Wins, Van Damme Confessions, and LA Galaxy Transfer Targets

On today’s show, your hosts will go back over the positives and negatives from the LA Galaxy draw with Houston and get you ready for the midweek matchup with Colorado. Plus transfer talk and Injury updates.

CoG Studios, CA – The LA Galaxy just pulled out a last minute draw with the Houston Dynamo and they did it with 8 possible starters out of the lineup. Honestly, you should be amazed at how badly they played, and they still got a respectable result against the second best team in the Western Conference.

Your hosts, CoG’s Josh Guesman and LA Times’ Kevin Baxter, talk you through the showdown with Houston as well as focusing on the two big issues that have plagued the Galaxy in 2017 — the strikers can’t score and the team can stay healthy.

Gyasi Zardes was missing in action, Jack McInerney only touched the ball 12 times on the night and was totally absent in the playmaking process, and the midfield couldn’t hold any possession. The Galaxy only got a single chance in the first half and that was thanks to a great individual piece of skill from Romain Alessandrini and a great hustle play by Emmanuel Boateng.

The guys will tell you who impressed them on the night, who should be considered for a starting spot against Colorado, and who is in danger of wasting their chances. Clement Diop will be on the hot seat soon, as Josh pins him for both goals. And Jose Villarreal looked better than he has, but he is directly responsible for the Dynamo pulling ahead. We’ll give you the details.

Josh and Kevin will also update you on nearly every player who has been injured and what their status is for the upcoming games. There’s a ton of people to talk about. So don’t be surprised when all those updates take a considerable amount of time. But you won’t get a more detailed or up to date look from anyone else. We’ve got you covered.

Finally, the guys answer your questions and get you ready for the game against the Colorado Rapids. With a short week and a long list of injuries, finding 18 players might be the hardest thing Curt Onalfo has to do. Then it’s back home for Sporting KC on the weekend.

Thanks for joining us! We’re glad we could be part of your Galaxy talk for the week. We’ll be back very soon!
